Love the cape maneuver and the rich colors in the pocket hanky and his true blue sportcoat (such fantastic felted texture–must be cashmere). He looks like a bearded Gregory Peck would have–had he lived until ten years beyond without aging another day.
Absolutely stunning. While his outfit is immaculate, it is the man wearing it that makes it so interesting. I think he can pull off the beard; perhaps his strong facial features prevent the beard from being overpowering. I wish I could have a cup of coffee and a long conversation with him.
He lives in my neighborhood in Milan and has always worn a cape and a hat like that. This is a wonderful portrait of a very stylish and very individual gentleman. His wife/partner is very stylish too, often in turbans and beautiful Indian fabrics. I have never spoken to him but he's always impressed me. So glad to see him here!!
