Sartorialist – if your site does anything, it sharpens everyones’ visual perception. This can be in B/W from the 30s, but how do you explain the filtered cig, much less the Range Rover…. the Lear Jet in the upper left. Rite on Sart.
I’m not sure if it would be 1930′s. Maybe if he looses his cigarette. I guess, they smoked fags without filters at that time;-)And he would have definitely shorter hair. Anyway let’s leave travel in time behind. He simply looks cute.
Austin makes a good point on the coat bottom length, it’s shorter than what’s recommend, but I like it…makes him look taller. In fact, scroll down the blog and look at the suit/jacket/sweater bottoms that fall at the guy’s wrist they all look taller (longer legs) I prefer this proportion to the recommened one we see on Mr Barbera (though don’t get me wrong, he still looks good, but he looks like he’s half top half bottom).
Would the guy’s butt be sticking out a little from behind…maybe, but my girlfriend says she likes being able to see mine.
It’s the hat I like best in the picture even though I don’t especially like the hat itself. Maybe it pops out at me because the jacket is so simple. He’s lovely. I don’t think he knows it, which of course makes it better.
I’ve looked at a lot of photos, and their all so simple, yet they all have something vast about them. Their all so sharp and clean, and their “street” people which makes all of these pictures very unique. I like this picture the most because it’s a simple man, wearing a simple everyday outfit, yet with a good angle this shot becomes what you might see on the cover of a modeling magazine.
I like everything. Even the hat. This is another example of how to mix pieces and make them all look JUST right. Note: the guy is gorgeous and probably intelligent (unless the book is also an accessory LOL). CRISTINA
How beautiful. Stepped right out of ‘Boy with Vase of Roses’ by Caravaggio. He could have modeled for several… It is his attitude, the slightly up-tilted chin that makes him rock this look – as if he’s daring you not to like the hat. Which by the way I DON’T. But if you have to see it, better on that head…
