    That’s nice detail on the collar. It’d be nice to see what everyone on the row is wearing as a matter of satisfying curiosity..

    Initially I thought maybe this was someone in a church attending a friend’s wedding. But I suppose it’s much more likely to be at a fashion show. It seemed more interesting for some reason when it was potentially at a church. Maybe edgier.

    I am sure I should know who this is, but I don’t. I see an elegantly dressed man, and would like to know him!

    oh he almost looks like a young obama!

      yes that’s also my first impression: Oh I never knew that Obama had an earring… and tattoos? 8-o

      …. oh this must be someone else.

      love, barbara

    The ultimate confrontation/reunion of street style and timeless sartorialism. It works so well, because each side is at its extreme and somehow ends up creating a real harmony of style.

      What ink?

      • Mixy

        August 25, 2012 at 4:48 am

        ‘Ink’ is an American word for Tattoos! Ha…. I used this word with my French husband too (who is completely fluent in British English and he looked at me as if I just spoke Ancient Greek)

    What a handsome man! The suit is impeccable, and the tattoos and plugs- so cool!

    Love the contrast of the sharpiness of his dress with the tattoos. It’s great indeed!

    This young man looks like my son – stature, posture and build. My boy wears the cord wrist’lets as well and makes a suit look good more often than the other way around. He is very interested in tattoos and I admit to being kind of skeptical because of concerns about their place in conservative workplaces or how they may or may not compliment one’s attire. This young man not only looks very classy but the tattoo looks like it very much belongs and makes me feel it would be as much missed were it not on the back of his hand and part of this picture. It seems as comfortable right there on his hand as the suit appears to be as it is worn. Beautiful shot Scott – Thank you for this – I will gladly show it to my son and add a thumbs up sign in support of his self expressively adventurous and complimentary skin decoration plans.

    He looks like a really fashionable, dapper rapper. He looks like he’s in a traditional tux, but then you look at his earrings and his rose tattoo, which gives him a whole new style.

    August 25, 2012 at 3:06 am

    Just lovely! The ear gauge and tattoo are in striking but perfect harmony with the strict, refined simplicity of the suit & shirt. (The fact that the gentleman is ridiculously good-looking doesn’t hurt.)

    Beautiful light and shadows and the angle of his body makes the shot very interesting.
    I like the simplicity of the dark suit and white shirt (is that a club collar?)

    I like the picture and fashion but I do not really like the erring choice.. I think a gold colored erring may have looked better

    One word- hot! :-)

  67. African Fashion

    August 25, 2012 at 11:59 am

    His style makes him so intriguing, the tattoo, the suit, the earring… who is he… he even makes me wonder what he’s texting if thats what he’s doing

  68. princessglee

    August 25, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    Handsome. Typically, I’ve found nothing attractive about a man with massive tattoos and a huge hole in his ear. This man’s exquisite suit and grooming elevated everything along with my typical opinion.

  69. Niki

    August 25, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    usually, I hate those holes in the ear. But he is so handsome, elegant and sexy…almost as sexy as the Sartorialist himself :P

    LOVE THIS! The contrast between the black tie and the plug and ink is amazing! Nice style, totally refreshing. Yes, please.

  73. JAco

    August 25, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    The suit is well cut and fits his nicely.
    Also the peeking of his personality (tattoo & earring) just really makes this sophisticated look more modern and edgy.

  74. m.edwin

    August 25, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    what’s important is how comfortable he looks with such a studied and purposeful appearance, with all it’s individual details.

  75. Namrata

    August 26, 2012 at 1:21 am

    Love the contrast of the body art and piercing with the crisp perfectly tailored suit!

    August 29, 2012 at 1:25 am

    He actually looks like president Obama, well built and handsome but the tattoos l don’t like them. All in all he is a handsome man and yea he can get all hot ladies falling for him like zombies.

    A beautiful example of how tattoos can be worn with class. Too bad about the iphone, though. What does it say about our society that so many Sartorialist shots are of people looking at their iphones now?
