    Another victim, strangled by his own scarf.

    if he’s looking for attention…that scarf will get it. i think its a bit much, and i hate to have that much bulk under my chin. i like a slim scarf that seems more like an accessory than a dominate element. its just out of proportion. besides…how cool would it have been if his spring green scarf was more in sink with the young green grass just poking up between the stones. would have been much appropriate. its a great photo. i would just like to make three scarfs from that much material.

      It’s like asking someone: ” Dude, where can I get a bottle of water?”

    Stylish and familiarly evocative… Mr Bowles would have been well suited to a Jane Austen character or a floppy haired and ruffled collar Sartorial Beau Brummell for the 21st century

    I don’t know him but I love his coat.
    Nice colour.

    Luxurious coat, beautiful monochrome of greys with a sumptuous flash of green. Very confident pose too. Hmmmmmmmm, charcoal grey or a deep deep blue shoes would have been better.

    Ah, Mr. Bowles! Very impressive use of color; the scarf–though rather over-large–is a particular treat.

    Love the gray/green color combination. He is always great with color – he can pull off very bright colors without making them look outlandish or flamboyant.

    I love that green with the grey.

    Nice! Almost a high collar look.

    A jaw-line closely trimmed beard would make him even more handsome!

    This man is always incredibly stylish and always wears colorful accessories. Love it!

    He looks like a Hamish Bowles.

    Button my coat, no scarf. Bundled up scarf, leave my coat open. Wonder if it that cold.

    Love the color of that scarf.

    Just back from a trip to Amsterdam. So European to have these enormously bulky scarves huddling around your neck – and wonderfully warm and comforting.

    Hamish Bowles is always such a great dresser. He is always neat and well put together. Bravo for the lovely photo.

    I love Hamish. Did you catch his cameo in Sophia Coppola’s “Marie Antoiette?”

    The scarf is obviously the focal point, but personally I love more the contrast between the gray of his trousers and his jacket; and his pose, with his thumbs hooked out of his pockets. So much attitude in that pose.

    The scarf is too big? Are people crazy? Or just far too picky?

    The outfit is wonderfully plain, with some subtle detail (the print of the jacket beneath for instance). The scarf sets things off beautifully, it’s size is part of the statement.

    So nice to see someone who looks stylish and warm. No suffering for fashion, please!

    For some inane reason, I thought he’d present as entirely foppish, but he doesn’t. He looks really great.

    it is wonderful to see a man with an expensive looking haircut. quality shoes – quality everything for that matter. This reminds me of the 80′s Armani adds – where everything looks just like life — but as you say Sart – just a bit better…He is always so calmly appealing – not easy for someone so in the fashion limelight.

    Great scarf against a great background – I love green. If only more men would wear scarves. Unfortunately, it doesn’t get too cold here in Western Australia, so there’s not much need for scarves for 10 and a half months of the year! It’s a real shame.

    A little bit of color goes a long way, once again. I expect him to have just come out of an old irish pub.

    Only thing I don’t love about the scarf is the way it’s tied — i hate that loopy thing fashionistas do. It looks way to contrived to me. Makes me feel like the scarf is not about keeping warm at all. It would look better if it was tied in a more casual way. Just my two scents about effortless style as opposed to… well, you know what i mean.

    I always get NAILED for wearing a scarf that’s a color other than black or grey. I’m so happy to see that there are men who use them for function and fashion! Great shot of a very STYLISH man!
