    What a serene old guy! The hat ribbon and the bronze in the tie are perfect together. He’s smart and comfortable in what looks like a well worn suit :-)

    If I could look half as fine as this gentleman I would be thrilled. Absolute perfection.

    When I first looked at this photograph, I thought, “Wow, this guy just has an certain air about him that’s so spectacular, he’s really…” I couldn’t find any word to describe how wonderful he looked, but then it came to me, “Oh my goodness, this man looks JUST like my father”. If you all could see how my dad looks, I’m sure you would agree. I was really taken aback. What makes this all the more peculiar is the fact that this shot was taken on Father’s Day. If I didnt know exactly where my father was at the time, I would have seriously thought you spotted him and took this snap-shot. Kudos to you Mr. Sartorialist and to that man featured in the picture, keep looking good.

    Men to need wear more old fashioned hats. I adore such hats. They look so classy in that old movies kind of way.

    This is a gentleman folks. I love it; much of my inspiration comes from the older generation.

    i love the how the hem is not perfectly cuffed on his left pant leg, and how his hat slightly tilts with a bit of a swagger. the sunlight hitting his kneecap gives this such an established feeling. i would venture to guess that this ensemble was not recently purchased; and it has taken many years for all the elements to collect until this one perfect form is made. similarly, the man is aged and probably has had a few knocks in his life. the suit is slightly worn but in pristine condition – just like the man who wears it.

    i just can’t get over this picture. i love the way he folds his hands, and how his feet are distanced and slightly askew. he’s not trying to form into any image, he’s completely comfortable with himself and where he is. he is neither smiling nor frowning, and peers straight ahead meeting whatever is coming face-on.

    Once a natty dresser, always a natty dresser. He is indeed sharp. There’s no blurriness about aging…he is as on point as he was as a young man.

    Quite an inspiration.

    And to you, good eye.

    This brings back some memories of my dad and uncles and growing up in Chicago. Young and old guys, married or not took a lot of pride in how they dressed. Always quality and style. Man they could dress!

    The man looks aged, but at the same time young. And timeless.

    Belle allure…. cependant, je remarque un détail : le tissu de la pochette est identique à celui de la cravate, et ça, c’est interdit….
