    effortless and fabulous. love the glasses and shoes accenting the great coat with rolled sleeve. love his hair and beard, too.

    I do like Robert’s style. Great coat and shoes (and glasses). He looks a little cold to go sockless. I imagine people will comment on the width of the trousers vs the length but I think they work fine. Narrow ones would look good too- I suppose it depends on whether you want to match or contrast with the silhouette of the coat. I wonder if he’s wearing an ascot?

    He looks good, but somehow I think this coat would look sloppy on most people, particularly with the unbuckled belt.

    Neat detail on the collar of the coat, and he seems to have a sense of humor about himself or his environment or the situation…or something!

    I think the same trenck would have looked better if it was a bit shorter and worn with a less grumpy face.

    Delightful! Do you suppose he has time for a cup of coffee? It looks like a damp chilly day in Paris… The trench not just “a terrific piece”, but a real coat – stuff in the pockets, cuffs turned back, belt undone, and best of all the collar flap buttoned!. The buttery color of the coat comes straight up from the ground under his feet and provides such a wonderful warm contrast to all the gray and black in the background.

    If he doesn’t tie that belt, it will be gone eventually.
    I learned that the hard way.

    Its a very natural shot with his hair messy and the coat unbuckled. I don’t really like his pants to wide for the look he has they are to billowy around his whole leg.

    Actually he’s just popped out to buy his croissant for breakfast (hence the sockless feet), and you’ve snapped him in flagrante delicto! He wasn’t intending to be caught by you, but since he feels quite ok in his skin, he’s happy to be snapped and amused by the fact that you found him snappable!…..

    He looks like a very special person, kinda mysterious but open, kinda nice and poetic…But it’s hard to put your finger on it… I like him and the way he pulls his coate around him makes him look so safe

    I beg to stongly diagree with the majority here. The shoes are great?!! When the dominant overall hue of the outfit is so evidently beigy, tan or yellowish the last color you’d pick for downstairs is black(!)What are all the browinsh golidsh yellowish shoes are made for then? Pants so large whent they’re so short! I could find a couple of cute details but the overall impression is one of unsophisticated and sloppy.

    It looks cold from his posture. the coat matches well with the trouser.
