    Impeccable. The style, culture, grooming, and the hat. It takes a special Man to bring all of that together in one instance. Great.

    i concur. even the distance between the ticket pocket and pocket looks dashing. the man simply exudes taste

    true. but i much preferred the man with the pink turban and shirt. the color combination would give alan flusser a hard on. however, it does lack the wonderful originality of the hat.

    I absolutely love everything about this man’s style. The hair, the hat, and of course, the fantastic suit.

    I wonder where this picture was taken…If it was at a fashion show, I would love to know what profession a rasta holds in the industry.

    He looks much too old to be a poser, so it is the contradiction that I find fascinating…

    I think this is why I return to the site over and over again. Scott Schuman has an incredible eye for contradiction. In my mind fashion is all about contradiction…Think Cinderella (hoodrat dressed up like a princess). People treat her like a princess right?

    Everyone with dreads is not a Rastafarian.

    All I know is, my son’s father better look like this when he’s older! He’s Jamaican and he has the nicest dreads and he looks like a nanny goat (the head shape and how he wears his hair sometimes makes me say this) and he’s adorable! I love his style. His body makes the outfit, so he can be stylish in a black Bob Marley tee-shirt and jeans. I am raising all my sons to be like THIS man (style wise anyway!).

    All the way from Chile!

    I love the hat! The face says, “I alone can wear this hat.” Slender man with fat composure wins in the end.

    I have never felt an envy as intense as this. How can someone know that then can pull off a style they have never seen before, because only they can pull it off?

    The organic-indigenous meets the formal-imperial. I'm going to attempt a female version of this for Monday. What to bring for a bag….

    So compelling. This makes me want to know his story. His style and demeanor speak volumes, if obliquely.
