On The Street… Time Warp, Madison Avenue

I was going to stop him and ask to take his photo but I was afraid I would be “sleepin’ with da fishes” by morning.

    Ooh!! I’m loving this old style gangsta look. Guys just look so dashing in a nice hat. I wish more guys wore hats.

    Funny how (at least for me) the posture and gait contribute as much as the clothes to the time-warp effect.

    I love a man in a pink shirt. I wish more of them realised how great they look.

    I love hats too, but on the young they usually look like a tawdry affectation. On this man it looks perfect.

    Meaning no disrespect…of course…but a double-breasted is better left buttoned or removed. This guy can get away with it, just as he has gotten away with many things in life. Love the crisp pink shirt and neatly folded pocket silk, the shades, the hat, and the appropriate shark-life scowl. Great action shot…this is HIS city. “Guido, get the car.

    i love it.

    it’s the trouser height. it wwould be interesting if high pants came back into style no that we’ve had a decade of below-your-butt.

    How is it that the (too) short trouser length looks cute and stylish on this gentleman and usually I’d criticise that element to high heaven!

    Lapo, I think it is called a Panama hat, the same style in colours other than WHITE (errata corrige) is called Borsalino which is also the title of a great ’70 movie with Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo. Are you the real Lapo?…

    Everybody looks better in a hat – more finished. Wear them, guys!

    The guy looks awesome despite unbuttoned double breasted coat, and the trousers a bit too wide at the cuffs. The overall effect is such that he may get away with it.

    I wish I had a grand Dad like him who would teach me life lessons.
