    Love the layers and the color palette, very similar to my own style!

    The colours work so well with each other.

    somehow i really like it. doesn’t look that “clean” but the outfit and the background totally fit. maybe it’s really a new type of camouflage ;)

    Wow, his stonewashed scarf and tweed give him almost a homeless vibe, yet at the same time those shoes are so, so elegant!

    Gorgeous shoes. Everything else is so matte in texture; the gleam is a nice contrast.

    A soft look, I want to touch the materials. His colors matches great with the background. Ugly weather…now go home, relax on the sofa, a wool blanket and a hot black tea.

    What a beautiful picture! I personally do not like the outfit, because it does not look very clean (I agree with Simon). But the setting of this picture is absolutely stunning…beautiful Paris!

    This photograph depicts a wonderfully weathered, rustic and natural beauty. This is definitely one of your best photos yet! You just keep on improving, Sart!

    this is an absolutely gorgeous photo.
    i love his ensemble, AND the background…
    the colors are all very pleasing.

    Beautiful photo! You have a great eye for how people relate to the space around them, Sart;it gives an added dimension to your work. I love his look and the texture of his scarf. That’s a great overcoat, may be it belonged to his grandfather as well??

    Has a very “disheveled elegance” look to it, absolutely great.

    The first thing I noticed was the open coat and scarf, and I thought “Ahh, spring is almost here”. Then I saw the bottoms of the trousers, WOW, I’m in love. xo

    Not bad but not that great either. Think the coat is too big, pants too tight and the scarf is nice but would look better in another outfit. The shoes are nice though! And I like the photo with that background and colors.

    love the cut of the trousers – I want some!

    Those pants are cool.
    I like how he’s a bit unkempt-looking; he looks quite handsome in a not-trying-too-hard way.
    This photo shows beautiful color harmony, texture. So real, so lovely.

    I totally love the fabric and the colours of the scarf, the trousers and the coat. The coat reminds me a little of a wet surplus army overcoat from the 40′s (in Sweden you can get them for a bargain) but the cut is oh, so much more fabulous. And the shoes…

    I remember when all the kids wore their jeans with that kind of cut in the hem. Brrr! But here it works.

    this is an awesome outfit. love the colors and it seems to match him

    i have been dreaming of a scarf like that forever. it’s the perfect texture of gray. if i’m not mistaken his pants are olive hued, which compliments the color of his jacket paired with the grey so very well. I actually want to borrow his whole outfit, except maybe wear it with heels.

    I love the palette in this photograph, the way the walls and the street pic up the colours he is wearing, well done Sart.

    Now that’s more like it. Just a bit crumpled, not “look at me, I’ve just been to my tailor. Again.” More of this and less of that uptight Italian ‘style’ and the world just feels so much better. The man looks like he’s dressed to actually go somewhere or do something, as opposed to leaving the house to be checked out by other men dressed in the same uniform as him. The greatest oxymoron in fashion is ‘Italian style.’ More of the NYC, p-lease.

    i dont know all that much… but is this jacket a wee bit too big?

    I love this oversized look. The colors are all from a different family–greens, beiges, cool greys, and plums. He looks fabulous.

    A very unkempt man with great shoes. I must agree with Linda about the colors and the photo but this is not a look I like to see.

    This is a hip take – playing with proportion and texture – on an utterly classical theme. Subtle yet so intense. You can’t get any more stylish in my book.

    A subtle mix. I Love this look. The color and shape of the shoe is classic.

    I love this for its photographic quality just as much as I do for his style. Really nice shot.

    Is that a soggy scarf? Eeh, I’m getting itchy!

    He’s taken on a chameleon-like effect in this photo in that he looks grimey and mildewy like the street and the walls in the background. Kinda icky and interesting.

    Great photo, great outfit. I WANT that scarf. Any idea where I could find it? It looks almost like denim, but maybe I just need better glasses.

    Well…Once again Christophe Lemaire is the epitome of chic !

    This is a breathtaking photo. He really is all the color and texture of all that lies behind him and beneath him; the rumpled corner of his coat and trouser legs and the wet weathered stone, the shiny leather beside the puddle and the proportions and every, every thing. If this were a musical thought it would be in a minor key on a viola.

    The outfit well reflects a man who has lived life, metaphorically, through the layers and texture in the clothing.
