    What a Dapper Dan! Love the color and fabric of his suit (and the similar tone in the buildings) and that his shirt and tie are the same color.

    Marvelous face. Sometimes, it seems like excellent fashion happens without even trying.

    Great textured shirt, can see a greek key weave in his tie too. This dude knows what he's doing!

    The colour of the suit does not suit him.

    dear Sartorialist,
    I'm not sure I can explain why, but your lasts Burberry pics gave me a true optimistic feeling for our world. As if your blog was a sociological thermometer adapted for TODAY, NOW. I'm actually living in a very small village in France and I confess I often think about your work when I meet my neighbors (although we don't live in an urban landscape) : what is his (or her) sartorialistic potential? I'm sure your blog contribute to change my sight about this "sample of humanity", and made me feel this optimistic tempo, especially this last Burberry serie.
    thanks for sharing, and cheers!

    He exudes natural elegance and grace.

    This is one of your best Scott. I am not even looking at his suit or hat, but his face – he has such dignity.

    This is a very poignant image.

    The striations in the fabrics, the pocket square, the cap, the pose = perfection. But don't understand the title "The Visitor"…..

    A man who knows how to look sharp and dignified.. with little effort too! His look is bold but subtle.. I bet he's a romantic!!! This photo has started my day well! Thanks.


    November 11, 2009 at 9:43 am

    That's what we must call of VINTAGE. It's obvious that it is a very old suit, but he looks amazing (except for the color), plus his expression is so interesting.

    He looks Cuban. Maybe it's just the hat. Buena Vista Social Club and all that.

    I think this look could easily have turned out badly, but he pulls it off very well. I really like how the hankerchief and the little detail on the tie both match the rest of the outfit.

    So, it is true that so looking guys (or people) are not often? I was surprised in Bordeaux about streets filled with guys in suits with hats and long umbrella's walking with no hurry. Different ages. What ot say – not often can see in the city I leave. Pity, because they are like pilars of this world.

  54. Ammu

    November 11, 2009 at 2:18 pm

    Wonderful. Love his attitude. The tie pin, the handkerchief, and the look in his eyes – perfect.

    Contrary to popular belief, this does not appear to be a vintage suit. In fact, I saw a similar copper-colored suit and shirt in a suburban "Gatsby" while suit shopping with my son.

    BTW, the photo subject has a great resemblance to recent photos of Willie Mays.

    BEAUTIFUL. The image, the subject, the light…all of it is amazing. There's so much life in that mans eyes. I would buy that photo and hang it on my wall. Seriously, once I earn enough money I'll get back to you on a few images.

    Is that a black panther beret and pin?

    I may be off, but I live in DC and see black men wearing that beret with the pin in it.
