Beautiful ascot, nice framing (blond women on the left, with the lighter images of the auto, trees and building on the right), but dislike the cigarette. His ascot matches his beard! And it's amusing seeing his gloves under his arm. I like how he has a few fingers in his pocket.
Mr. WIlliam Gilchrist, I presume? I remembered seeing him on the Dunhill video with Jude Law and noted him as a stylish gent. Then I saw him on this blog from time to time, and in a sunspel email. It's cool to be able to put a name to the gentleman, I would like to see his different costumes. One thing though: I only ever see him in a navy double breasted jacket with a silk scarf underneath! More please, Mr Gilchrist!
Nice touch with the gloves in the chest pocket. I wonder which company makes that short jacket which will look great on my son (I'm now too large for it to work on me). I do not like the muffler, but that is a matter of taste. OTOH, it may look better than whatever the gent has underneath.
I think it's interesting that, for me, the older women and gentlemen seem to have the greatest sense of style, and/or they seem most comfortable in the clothes they're wearing. Perhaps with time comes a better sense of who and what you are, and who/what you aren't. The older genre just seem to have a much more natural flow to their style and it comes through beautifully.
Though I don't feel this man is approachable by any means I love his style. The patterned scarf, the gloves in the breast pocket, the rumpled double breasted jacket, the cigarette â so easy, so incredibly cool.
Hot, hot, hot!!! I do so wish non-smokers would keep their comments to themselves! This is the way it works guys… quite a number of Europeans (including myself) and non-Europeans too, I'm sure, have an intense love/hate relationship with their smokes. We know it's bad – really bad – and we tell ourselves regularly that we will stop the insanity, yet we love our smokes. So live and let live, please!
I love this man, he is so sexy and self-assured. What a perfectly put together outfit. A bit rumpled, but depending upon the fabrics, this cannot be helped. Love the scarf! And yes, my favorite line, I'd follow him home!
If there is one thing that keeps me smoking is the fact that it broadcasts far and wide my wishes to be disassociated with sportspeople.
Someone said the jacket should have been ironed… I couldn't think of doing anything worse to that artfully cut jacket which, inter alia, may have a linen component in its genetic makeup. If not, I call sprezzatura.
In these slovenly times of board shorts and flip-flops, and men hitting gyms to look like frogs, the gentleman is a genius. I can't fault it and I'm fiercely critical. Well done, Sir.
He has such a distant look in his eyes, he's not at all aware of himself as being cool, he's simply confident. This shot just proves that style is not limited to the young. Also, please can the non-smoking comments-Europeans smoke, get over it, and they don't have as many hang-ups as Americans about a variety of things. It's part of their charm.
It's a cliche – but I must say the Italians always win it in the style stakes – as evidenced by this marvelous blog and in particular this gent. Rarely is their style overdone as it is in New York and London particularly. However saying that; the Sartorialist, get yourself down to Savile Row. It's an oldie but still a goodie when wishing to spy some styling fellows.
Oh, very nice! I saw his more recent picture, Variation on a Theme. He really knows how to dress, this man. <3 And he looks a bit like my Drama teacher. But then again, my Drama teacher wears Spiderman and South Park ties and neon-colored socks … all right then, maybe not such a strong resemblance.
