There appears to be a blazer or suit jacket under the parka, if so, the lengths of the jacket and the parka go hand in hand perfectly. The shoes seem vintage, which may or may not be a good thing, the 1970′s saw a lot of very ugly shoes; what do you all think of these ones? Ugly or not? I love how one can tell an authentic LV once it ages, the way their vachetta leather ages, it is like nothing else- and worth the price! Jorge from W Palm Beach
I think the shoes go fantastically with the rest of the outfit. Boots would work with the parka and simple green turtleneck, but also probably wouldn’t have popped much. The thin straps and contrasting brown leather “upper” (pardon my rough use of shoe lingo) are classy but masculine, and lend a certain unconventional flair to an otherwise conventional (however nice) ensemble. norawoah had it right: the shoes make the man.
He looks profoundly masculine. I thought nobody in New York smoked? But what do I know. Maybe he’s French. That bag would like useless on almost anyone, but not him. He clearly knows himself vey well. I like that no one would be able to successfully imitate this look.
he’s got alot going on here. but the sum of the many parts works for me. my favorite shots of yours are quickly becoming the ‘on the go smoking shots.’ believe it or not, you actually have quite a few. the last was the one of the gent in the blue suit with the red pattern tie and tan scarf. i like all shots like this with movement – wheres this guy going and whos he meeting?
I must admit i’m rather disappointed here. He looks very bloomingdaleish.. i cannot say he has inspirational style at all, his hair is nicely done though i suppose. An the green and navy blue look nice together, but I think the trousers aren’t fitting him properly. As for the bag…I’m not a fan of what is over done.
this photograph is exhilarating. the blueness of the blue bicycle is searing my eyes. i LOVE how you caught this man in such paregoric motion. i’ve met him several times in my life. we are in the same line of work. i wish i looked as good as he does! he is married in two different countries (hence the two rings). sadly, you’d think the business of international ermine trading (our business) paid more, but it doesn’t. hey sart, come to mt rainier national park next! xoxo
That's a very nice photo Scott. I like the instant you snapped the shutter, it's very "in the moment". Has anyone noticed that he's wearing two wedding bands?? I think he's masculine & cool in an effortless sort of way, shame he's smoking.
Awesome, don’t even know why, all the summands seems quite normal, but the result is awesome! Men’s parka is my favourite thing ever notwithstanding all those GQs in Armani and Zegna coats. The bag seems to be “odd one out” here. Nice colours play: emerald and deep navy with the subtle colour of fur.
Ok, my first reaction was… ????? blah! then at a closer look… it appears that his pants fit him perfectly.. If you can actually get past the big jacket. You might see a very well fitted ensemble. Besides the green turtle neck is gorgeous. love the shoes also, just not a big fan of the LVT monogram bag… A damier bag would probably look much nicer in my opinion.
The shoes are great. I’m not wild for the parka with a suit but the parka is nice. And finally negative comments on the bag! “Look at that man with the Louis Vuitton bag” is not a remark I would want to elicit. In my opinion a “branded” item like that is always conspicuous and tends to dominate and detract from the overall look. I did notice the two rings- don’t know what it means but I like it.
First of all I am not sure what the fuss over the LV bag is, I have the same one and carry it like is a 20.00 from Gap. (and don’t discount THAT either) His choice of bag is for him, and mine is for me, it is well made and functional. My mother carried LV when I was young so it certainly is not “over”. Just maybe not “hot” anymore. My big question though is the smoking issue. Is there some sort of genetic connection between smoking and being well turned out? Honestly, it makes someone so much less attractive in my humble view. But other than that, congrats for finding men who push the envelope, it is really nice to know I am not the only one. I look forward to you posts every day!
the moment I saw this picture, something about expressed an Italian spending his first fall in America. I find the tailoring to be precise, perfect lengths. To me he captures an essential element of menswear, making it appear you care about your appereance, but not to much, but in the end capturing a perfect look.
