Not too crazy about either look–but would go first with the summer one.
To me, there’s something epicene about the winter ensemble–not a bad thing in itself, necessarily, but not appealing here. Maybe it’s the mauve-ish scarf and white pants with all the shopping paraphernalia….
While the top shot is nice with that lovely pop of orchid, the belly-button flash in the bottom photo does anything but renew MY faith in French men’s fashion… with those blousy little culottes, it’s practically apocalyptic.
Well, I LOVE him. Both looks. But especially the summer which is virtually my uniform – the navy shirt, the crisp white shorts. Fabulous. But the spring wintery look is also classic but fresh. Where are we having lunch?
Sart – I have to ask, is this man petite in stature, or is it just that his clothes make him look less than tall? On that note, do you think style guidelines for shorter men differ much from those for petite women (e.g., don’t choose overwhelming patterns or accessories)?
Hmm, actor indeed: Winter Michel and Summer Michel look like completely different people! WM looks less fun, the serious uncle that doesn’t “get” kids and why they’re always running around –he paints his Easter Egg gingerly, dabbing the excess paint off his brush with a hint of distain. SM looks like everyone’s favourite uncle, the one that smells of vices and is always running around with the kids –he throws his half-painted Easter Egg in the air and delights in the cry of horror his mother makes when he fakes a fumble.
I woulda never recognized that they were the same person.
