Oh . . . glad you posted that second shot. The first is a lovely portrait, but the second shows why you are the quintessential roving style finder and photographer. That belt, fashioned out of a bit of cloth, unravelling t the edges, is brilliant.
Oh the look on his face just resonates confidence, especially when highlighted by that tipped hat-and the nonchalance of his belt. Though, must admit, not sure I'm ready for the return of the denim trouser.
Echoing another comment on this one, I am reminded of some shirts I had made for a gentleman who insisted on having an 8-button front. I tried to dissuade him, but I'm sure that his first trip to tend to the necessary probably did more to convince him not to repeat that on his next order than any amount of arguing I could have ever attempted to have made. One only hopes that the knot is not too tight for this fellow.
Oh this guy! I recognise him, he was working in a bar at Marais, the reason why I picked that bar in the street while waiting for my friend. He had an unforgettable, alluring outfit and attitude just like in this picture.
that belt . . . turn your armchair or couch over, pull off the black cambrick, and you'll see it's furniture webbing, the stuff you tie the springs to. pretty nifty, eh? he must have gotten into my stash. why not?
