    Oh man, oh boy, oh man, oh boy… how do I express my innermost feelings about his blazer in a language void of alliterations or poetic rhyme… I would mug him for the blaz… no, it's been done. OMG OMG OM… no that's also been done. I fuc… nah, too crude.

    OK, got it: The blazer. Gimme.

    Wow — the best thing about this guy is his HEAD. And he's set it off to perfection with his study in blues. Really, I can't get over the way his eyes and brows curve down at the sides… Why does that immediately read as worldliness, and a sense of humor? And that hairline! You go, boy. (But maybe wear your trousers a little longer.)

    Methinks that a his jacket requires a brisk ironining.

    That would suit him better.

    He's terribly handsome. I suspect that he would get a nod regardless of what he was wearing. I almost wish the photo were in black and white. I think the look would be quite wonderful.

    Yep, facial hair is back!!

    This guy really pulls the whole thing off, I think he looks great.

    I'm really liking the facial hair and his hair style is right on the money. Very retro.

    except for the pocketsquare which is a bit much, he looks really great – and comfortable unlike the "perfect RL NYC" of the other day.
    Always loved blue; so glad to see it coming back in full force.

    I like the shirt, tie, pocket square, and socks.

    The blazer and the pants I am not so sure about.

    You can't have nice neat hair and a pressed shirt and then throw a wrinkled blazer and pants. Mess up the hair and untuck the shirt and open the blazer and maybe you have something. If not press your blazer and pants.

    Oooooooo, I do like this very much.

    He's got a nice monochromatic thing going and blue is his color.

    I do agree with the whole cuffed pants thing. Sometimes it works (on the beach) and sometimes it doesn't (everywhere else). Visually, it shortens a man's legs and I do believe that a tall man has always been in vogue. But some guys can pull it off.

    terrifically handsome man. the brits do "rumpled" so very well. just wish he hadn't rolled his trouser cuffs.

    Very good indeed as should be expected from a Savile Row tailor and haberdasher. Nice that he is wearing his rolled up pants with socks.

    For those of us who ride bikes and live in cities it is not purely an affectation of style. It is very practical.

    I'd like to iron him, steal those shoes and socks for a nice clothing bank somewhere, and slap on a pair of Sperry's instead, but other than that – he's lookin quite suave.

    The well placed part doesn't hurt a bit ;)

    It is always a matter of balance. The shirt and tie are pretty conservative. The blazer is not.
    The pocket square, a la sans-façon.
    Shoes and pants are conservative, but the pants are rolled-up.
    The vedict? Cool beyond description. Conservative enough for an office, but with a creative side that makes this gentleman here A WINNER in the style Grand Prix. Plus, he looks like a nice chap.

    wait, what? He is absolutely killing it!

    And no, he should not iron the jack, lengthen the pants or remove the pocket square- whatsdamatter with you people? He's doing it properly, respect due.

    I dig the look, the man is handsome. But the outline/cut of the figure is off. These pants should not be rolled, only tight pants should be rolled otherwise they end up looking like skater pants from 1995.

    Guys and gals, the blazer with the patch pockets has to have a little crumple 'cause that's the look for a linen-blend garment. To submit it to an iron would be sinful. And further to the crime, whoever said the pocket square needs to go… No, I will not stand for such blasphemy! It needs to be pronounced and in yer face. Regardless of there being about a dozen ways of folding it.

    He outshines his clothes, but I still like the threads on him. How many really can make a db and tie combo look so casual and unaffected. If someone with lesser style wore this, it'd look terrible and contrived.

    I don't know why he makes me think of Rick Astley for some bizarre reason as they look nothing alike.

    Perhaps the dashing hair is the extent of it?

    The calming bluish hues of his outfit against the brick home in the background is just pure visual bliss.
