    Great look!
    I love the crisp, clean look of the jacket.
    And the hat and bag are playful without being silly.

    Rainy shots are beautiful: the way the buildings are reflected in the wet road creates such a special effect!

    About the outfit, he must be a great character. He has a great posture and I love his plain coat and colorful hat: a combo of serious and fun.

    There is something very Christamasy about him. I would say that he is going home to get some sleep after spending all night long helping Santa.

    Absolutely love the coat – the color, the fit, the length. Love the pants (jeans?) too – not too skinny, not too wide – just right.
    Just lose that silly hat.

    Was the sunlight that harsh or did you put the settings like that? Either way it looks brilliant, all inky deep shadows. Wow! I love that his outfit matches the colour palette of the background. And his bobble hat set at a rakish angle? Bravo! It’s great that his shoes work so well with the rest of his outfit but I can’t imagine pale green being all that versatile.

    I really love the cut of his jeans, and the shoes. Did he just buy everything that very morning? That’s my only quibble – everything looks a little too starchy-new.

    it’s very subtle. i live the way the colors of his hat co-ordinate with his shirt just seen beneath that lovely coat. i’m also not sure how much the actual photograph contributes to the style and coolness factor – it’s a great shot.

    Love the coat. If it is a real Mac, so much the better.

    Always in search of the “perfect” bag, this one seems to be holding a lot and looks ok.

    Undecided about the shoes. Kind of ordinary, banal even.

    Trousers are also not interesting. Am I missing something?

    The “touque” is a typical part of winter dressing where it is cold. This one has whimsy.

    I like this guy. He seems friendly, and he’s well dressed, and he is not afraid to wear things that may seem silly, like that cap, but he actually works it in a way that is so intrinsically hip.

    ha! I bought those shoes too and every time I wear them I can’t decide if they’re the best thing ever or a really bad idea – they always provoke the odd raised eyebrow… they’re dashed comfortable at any rate… I reckon he’s pulling them off pretty well though – maybe I’ll revisit them…

    Nay, this coat is for naught. While I have sort of an abstract appreciation for the shoe/coat match game(watery butter with watery chartreuse), I cannot find a similar sentiment for the fit of that piece. The scale is all wrong even as the sleeve length is all right.

    And I’m perplexed by the bag, which makes this tall man’s hands look delicate.

    Love the red sweater peeking out from the collar and love the bag.

    Like the coat, but it looks more like a spring coat than a winter coat, the light shade I guess. A great shape and length for him.

    I also like the beard. It helps him avoid looking too boyish but he still looks youthful.

    But the hat looks like when you were 9 and your grandmother knitted you a horrible pompom hat for Christmas and your mother forced you to have your picture taken in it to show Grandma how much you loved it. Not that I’m still bitter.

    And what are those shoes? Do I really need a pair of shoes to take me from my sailboat to the bowling alley? And in pea soup green no less?

    Love the blog, Sart.

    I fancy his bag. And his well done layering. The plaid peeking out of his solid jacket is great. I love the single button peeking out. Also the perfect jean length and his shoes are a beautiful color. The hat is doubtful, but I think he would look too plain without it… everything else about his outfit is subtle, but the hat is just festive. Does this say anything about his personality? In short, divine!

    This is brilliant. The jacket with the shoes is absolutely genius. and the bag?! perfect! as for the multicolored toque? I love how it transforms the ensemble into a casual, more wearable outfit.

    I like the lighting. His hat reminds me of Stephane from Science of Sleep.

    I think his Jacket is screaming out 4 back up from another accessory, It looks like a statement in bland ….Not that im going to argue with ones statement, power to him

    The bag is Jack Spade – it is the Enamaling Duck Brief. I have it and it is spacious and looks great. Perfect for long business trips!

    i like the slim-cut cream rain mac very much, certainly a coat i’d like to own. somehow i like the whole look, albeit a bit too bohemian for me. personally, i wouldn’t wear a beanie with a mac and i don’t really like the chap’s shoes. an outfit that suits him, however.

    the crispness of jacket with the matching of the shoe is real dope, could do without the hat

    Swap his shoes for converse all star trainers and that’s the way I dress, I am just shorter and not as sexy : (

    He looks rather Margaret Howell to me, however I swear I saw his raincoat in Liberty’s of London over a year ago (with a hefty price tag) by mackintosh

    Very simple and non-fussy look, it works for him. What bag is that? it’s got that Filson look to it.
