One Year Ago

I took this photo a year ago (the weekend before Thanksgiving) and it is one of my all time favorites.

    This is my favorite of all your photographs. He’s so handsome, and just has a peaceful demeanor. He reminds me of my uncles.

    Ahh, this may be one of, if not the greatest pictures that you’ve ever taken. Where does this youngster reside? Kingston, the DR? I love the way the dark, worn look of this suit plays against the tropical background. The confidence. The no-nonsense look in his eyes. Excuse me, I’ve got to run to the store for more Red Stripe and Tops papers.

    Sartorial RAAAASTA- MAN!!!
    Clearly a very confident man who is very comfortable in his own skin therefore the unusual and interesting combination of style here.

    Amazing hair, and most of all I admire the flair wit which he carries the combination off. For some reason, he looks to me like he was going to Sunday church.

    nice postcolonial edge too. one one hand, the oppressor-man ticket pocket and suit vest look. on the other, the hair and skin tone. all put together with the hat, the locale, the calm peaceful expression.

    Life is short but fashion is…in the air itself. Or do I mean style?

    I COULD say that here we have a mind-bending genre-mix (or have I just?), but instead I’ll just sit back and…enjoy.

    Love it, but I’m not so sure it’s a tropical location. He’s holding gloves and it looks like a conifer growing behind him.

    Come on people, it’s a suit with a dread-locked man inside. Please.

    I love you’re blog and I read it as often that it is possible. This picture is my absolut favourite too. It’s just marvellous!

    I’m in love with this picture – you’d never expect consistency with such a mix of styles and here – voila – is a mature man with dreadlocks and in a 3-piece suit. This is Style.

    Never mind the dreadlocks and tropics, this suite is sublime. Put that in any one else and the effect would be similar, except that person would not have this gentleman’s personality, which undoubtedly helps. The jaket is thee perfect fit, the colour of the suite, the shirt and tie and the extra-pocket on that jacket! I love it. Mesmerisingly brilliant Sart, love it!

    I’m partial to dreadlocks so OF COURSE I think he looks like a “stunna”!

    BTW, just an observation @ 11:05, who says he’s a Rasta? The two don’t go hand in hand.

    (Dismounts soapbox to gaze at the distinguished dreadlock dandy…)

    Yeah the dude is, undoubtedly……A DUDE !!, but im just not totally sold on the hat

    everything else….perfect……and that suit is beautiful, i like it almost as much as that shot of the older japanese gent in the lightweight single breasted chalk stripe number you shot in milan

    the hat just has a touch of the ‘old lady at Ascot’ look about it

    (yeah im nitpicking, but….its because i love everything else about his style so much that this one aspect grates on me)

    What’s up to all, how is the whole thing,
    I think every one is getting more from this website, and your views are pleasant in favor of new people.

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and
    say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for first-time blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.
