    Jacket fits him beautifully. I like the color, too. Does the cut of the pants presage an imminent baggy period in the world of men’s fashion?

    I like it, nice combinations, and those linen scarves (I believe that’s what is is) are great for this time of year.

    Gotta love the Maison Martin Margiela suit. I love the grey scarf as well but I’m not sold 100% on the tie choice.

    At first I liked the picture, but upon closer inspection, I think there’s too much going on to be sartorially inspiring.

    On the other hand, it’s a damned practical look, and if your point isn’t to have sartorial impact, then this gent has clearly achieved the “mix-and-match but not too perfectly” ideal!

    Overall, I wish I could look this good!

    What an intriguing photo. not just the smoke in the sunlight but the distinctive cut of the suit, his scarf, the chain from his breast pocket – what is it? – and those stitches on his lapel. All kind of mysterious. I admire the sensitivity you show in choosing this subject.

    Ah, European men………you can tell a lot about this man by his appearance – most of it rather good.

    Great look! Reminds me of me except I now need that suit. I’ve been trying to figure out a casual but with tie look and this is it!

    This is a fantastic look. What is hanging from his breast pocket is the temple of a pair of glasses made by Lunor (which is incidentally a wonderful maker of vintage-inspired eyewear and my personal favorite). The scarf is great because it is not too studied. A mix of elegance and not appearing to try to hard. But most important: masculine, and not dandy-ish.

    Good look, but am unsure why he has his top button fastened. Yep it raises his waist, but jackets aren’t cut that way.

    As a day time indulgence his chosen ring size is just about OK, but doesn’t befit the swagger.

    There needs to be more outfits like this on here and a lot less like safari guy in the picture further down.

    You’ve shot him before and I loved him then too. Ultra handsome and masculine and stylish and making it look effortless.

    I tool like to wear my scarves like this under blazers, peaking out below.

    When I enlarged the pic.,I was surprised that his face looks younger than from a distance. It´s the grey and white on his beard that makes him look much older.

    I love the shooting and, of course, his look…classic but always up to date…beautiful suit, in fact…and the scarf looks great

    I don’t think that is cigar smoke coming from his lips. I think it is frost. Clearly he exhales coolness.

    I’d love to know where I could get a scarf like that, either online or London, thanks.

    The clothes are fine, I guess, although it’s just another suit to me. What ruins the whole thing for me is that horrid moustache. A proper man’s beard and moustache should have at least a hint of wildness and freedom about them. This is just too neat. Bah!

    I lived in Italia for a few years.
    I know the habits good and bad. But do you need to post so many photographs of people smoking?!
    Your reinforcing the culture of cool and it’s dependence on nicotine.

    Yes Dude! I am in my thirties and love dressing up and learning from “Godfathers”…

    Here is an example of what I would like to be in at age. Pure quality, except that I do not smoke and do not intend to.

    But a very inspiring Dude! THX

    In responce to anonymous at 9:29am-baggy is already back this season for those on though now. I however think it just looks scruffy unless it is done well. Superb look-effortless.

    Great picture his hair is really looks great a little messy. Also the scarf really gives his suit a touch of fall.

    Very cool. I’m feeling the blues and grays, even the gray smoke and gray beard. It’s all good.

    Just the right spot of color with the tie. Subtle.

    That’s one GREAT shot !
    Wow !
    I adore his scarf and the way he has buttoned it in his jacket…The suit looks wonderful on him and just look at those extra’s : red tie, a peek of his (sun)glasses and brown shoes …

    I enlarged the pic to see all the details that everyone is talking about… ;) I like the look in his eye. It makes you wonder what he is thinking about. I think the tie shows warmth and compassion and the outfit shows culture and dignity. I like everything but his mustache. It is to thin! Great pic and handsome man to boot!

    Love the colors, fabrics, cut of the coat. Hate the baggy pants. They look early 90s no-vent jacket era. They look sloppy not rakish.

    Great light in this pic, Scott. The bright but crisp fall day is my favorite.

    If he had wool felt hat I’d almost mistake him for a laborer. His suit color reminds me of the smocks they (used to?) wear in Spain.

    It looks lik his wearing the same brown shoes from the previous photo you took of him. Did you cut them out on purpose? And is it only me, or does his pants come up realy high?
    As for the pins, maybe he works in fashion?

    This guy has IT. Everybody is being so Puritan about the cigar. It completes the look, it’s him, and it’s a major turn-on for some of us.

    So effortlessly elegant. The style is “his” and doesn’t pander to the au currant demands of what is correct. Cigar? Who cares?

    very stylish, well made suit, not too tight, with a large and flamboyant plain coloured scarf. The red spotted tie over a crisp white shirt is a nice subtle touch.
