I’m glad the denim is a dark wash, otherwise I would hate this. His curled mustache and beard combined with the denim in this 3 pc format is a great combination of Old & New. The denim keeps this look current.
If the suit had a finer fabrication I would say it could be Joe Macheca, the head of the Italian underworld in New Orleans in the late 1800′s out for a stroll. He wore that same mustache as did many men of the time. Of course no stove pipe legs, but the fit resembles some of the old photos of the time I have seen.
Also because it is shot against a brick wall with no other identifiers, it could be any city, anywhere in the world…and any time.
This look wouldn’t have been made complete without the well-groomed beard and the black fedora. It’s the details that counts, even with this “Canadian tuxedo.” Which he pulls off VERY nicely by the way.
This sounds quite pathetic, but I always look at the comment number below the picture to see how many people liked the photo. I was disappointed that this fellow only received around 40 comments but then I realized I never comment on photos either. Therefore, I am one of the problems. I think he looks incredible. He’s the kind of person I would stop and stare at and wonder how he spends his time.
