OMG I love this pic, the tailoring on the suits a re impeccable. I love the cuffs on the pants , the ties and the hat the gentleman is wearing is awesome . Even their shoes are shined juxtaposed against to the dirt ground and the building which looks like it has a tin roof. Love it! These are suits I would wear today in 2012
Lovely photo. Both gents look quite dapper, but I’d have to say that the guy to the left has a lot of details in his look that I favor – check out his collar placement and waistcoat. Everything here is short, tailored and sweet (without appearing too stiff of course). There are so many manufacturers that can’t quite seem to get that part of the shirt together, and I’m sure that shorter gents (like myself) can agree.
I don’t think I could make a bowler hat look that cool either. So many great tidbits in this pic.
Love this photo- the cuffs on their trousers, the vests – we don’t see vests like these anymore and it’s a pity. All topped off with immaculate shine on the shoes and the straight-point collars. But what really makes it are those wonderful expressions that make me want to know those men’s stories.
They are flawless. I agree with everyone above. We should reconsider our relentless casual dress code. ‘Sunday best’ sounds very attractive ! I think we have learned not to be ‘rigid’, now we must revisit ‘beauty’ as well.
I love the way the men were comfortable, it is an advice to all of us if we all want to look good and be appreciated then we must be comfortable with what we put on. The vintage photo was real amazing.
I have loved this blog for so long but this is my first time commenting. I’m so in love with this photo. There’s a story here and I wish I could get to know it. The two gentlemen here are so crisp and sharp in their dress. Simply amazing. I particularly like the jacket on the gentleman on the left. Specifically I love how close the top and bottom button are on his jacket.
It is so good to see vintage photos of black people (not speaking of Sart specifically) and they’re not in a field. Yes, many of my people had some means and many had style out the whazoo! Thanks to whomever submitted it.
We have so much money in the modern world but we are so familiar and vulgar. I cannot imagine the man on the left was very rich but his outfit is PERFECT. To the detail. Shame on all the modern lazy vulgarians.
