    Beautiful shot, Scott! I like this young gentleman’s scarf and three-button, glenplaid sport coat. These items go well with his hair. Note the tortoiseshell specs in the breast pocket. I wonder why one hand is ungloved? This guy looks like Peter Brimelow.

    That’s a great one. I think I’ll probably be quite happy once my hair starts going grey – as long as it doesn’t all fall out first.

    Yeah I noticed the cuff at an angle as well–I think it looks pretty cool! He looks so handsome & well put together.

    Please find out and report who does the jacket. Great natural shoulder.

    i LOVE the tweed jacket (and the gray hair) along with the scarf and gloves… my daily uniform (well, not always tweed)l.

    i do feel the jacket is a bit baggy. i think having it brought in at the waste would do wonders for the silhouette.

    I also noticed the angled cuff. I too am wondering if this is deliberate or if he needed the sleeves shortened but didn’t want to mess with the buttons, hence the angled cuff.

    love the cuff cut at an angle. i think Alexandre Plokhov for Cloak use to do that. gives it a goth feel without being so literal. very nice.

    YUM! Love the plethora of grays, from the silver mane to the glen plaid to the charcoal scarf. And I’m a sucker for a cleft chin!

    Mmmmm Silver Fox…and his clothes compliment it perfectly.

    I like this. this reminds me of that earlier shot you took in Paris(?) of the woman with the long very red hair wearing a jacket in this similar vain.

    two completely different looks but the contrast of the grey jacket and the hair color was striking.

    Is this ‘all in navy’ guy from few weeks ago… We suspected it then, but now we know it: he’s the master of matching!

    I love all the textures and details he has going on. The white stitching on his gloves and I like how he has the a darker colour close to his face. really nicely pulled together and timeless.

    He is my long-lost brother, bless you for finding him for me. Now I´ll take off my tortoise-shell framed glasses, brush my silver page cut hair and slip into my tweed cape – oh, not to forget the scarf and black woollen skirt. Brown suede boots, or perhaps the black ones today. Hugs and kisses!

    my guess is he took off a glove to remove his glasses for the photo, or to put something else (his mobile?) in his jacket pocket (looks like something bulky is in there.) I bet the jacket is RL… just guessing from the buttons and the purple over-pane on the plaid. I love the angled cuffs — am noticing this more and more on well considered tailoring. great photo.

    Does anyone else get fed up with the orthodoxy of this way of tying a scarf? Remember when people used to just wrap a scarf around the neck? This way looks too preppy perfect.

    Because he IS weird. You’d have to visit Laguna Beach to understand.

    He looks very handsome, neat and put together in a way you can tell he’s comfortable with himself

    If you’re going to wear a sack suit, that’s the way to do it. Since there’s no darting in the front to give it shape there, taking in the waist would be at odds with the jacket’s cut.

    Not every jacket needs to have a lot of shape to make the wearer look good. This one has a very nice drape to it, thanks to the cloth. The effect is obvious on the right side of his jacket, between his bottom button and pocket flap. So many sack suits are made of bad cloth and don’t hang right.

    My favorite things in this photo are: (1) his hair, (2) the fit of the shoulders, and (3) the relatively high gorge of the lapels. Take away any of those things, and nothing else matters.

    It’s like Helmut Lang meets Trad.

    That being said, I wouldn’t wear this. It’s too drab. The littany of gray is unimaginative.

    The sleeves are too long, and normally I’d say the jacket hem as well, but it works here as a quasi-coat.

    Classy gentlemen here. I love his silver hair and the jacket.

    I don’t mind the absence of a pocket square so much. But if I was going to plan my color combos like that, I probably would stuff one in my breast pocket for good measure.
    What I particularly like, however is the amount his jacket has been broken in and even looks a bit fuzzy and frayed on the edges. I hope all my sport jackets look like that (or even more worn than that one day.

    If it’s chilly wear a jacket.
    If it’s cold add an overcoat.
    If it’s very cold add scarf and gloves.

    This combination of items is awful.

    You have shot this same man, wearing this same jacket, once before. The title was something like “perfect casual friday”. I have it in my personal archive of Sartorialist favorites but don’t have time to track it down on the site – maybe you have an easier way?

    I fell in love with his hair on your Nov 9th post “On the Street….Sleek & Chic in Navy, Manhattan”.

    Impeccably dressed yet again.
    Voluminous hair.

    love it.

    Oh lovely, i love this man’s look from his prince of wales blazer to his piercing blues eyes.
    the color palette is minimal, yet very rich.
    oh and i like the glasses peeking out of his pocket, hehe.
    très dapper.
