    Flawless, beautiful palette, comfortable yet not sloppy cut, very classic yet undoubtedly modern, worn with refined charisma. I would have liked to see shoes and the lower part of the trousers!

    You've created a beautiful capture. The light is gorgeous. So are the colors of this gentleman's look.

    wow. matched every color in his blazer perfectly. don't know how i even feel about that but it is indeed impressive. more impressive are the lapels on that jacket!

    It's the range of colours and textures here that works so well.

    Brown and orange is one of my favorite combinations ever!
    Good-looking, and fitting the background perfectly. When Japan meets Italy there's always a hint of magic…

    The perfect casual color palette for Fall/Winter….I'm sure he's got brown suede brogues or a dark brown pebble grain split toe on his feet!

    the orange scarf give the outfit a particoular touch of elegance!

    Oh, I love this series. These men are all so different, yet there is an unmistakeable flow going on here. I love it. I'd like to see this photograph and the two before all hanging together, they are lovely Scott.

    This gentleman blends elegance and playfulness like no one else. You've photographed him several times–I think he's worthy of a spotlight series so we can learn more about him and his style.

  24. Sophisticated Misfit

    February 9, 2010 at 9:49 am

    I like all that the gentleman is wearing except the frames. Call me pedantic but something like what Monsieur Schuman wears would have been perfect. Or something like what Philip Seymour Hoffman wore as Truman Capote when he gave a preview reading of his book in the film. Yeah!

    this guy always knows what time it is! this photo captures a more feminine side to him than the usual cool ass he is depicted as (with cigarette) in earlier photos.

    Love this colour combo (and note my very Canadian way of spelling 'colour'…ha!) For those of us who reside in areas where oodles of maple trees transform seasonally into gold and vibrant rusty-oranges, this palette is quite "autumn". Can't say I will be wearing it anytime before September…I just want to warmer weather right now!

    … and blue. the barely visible light blue shirt collar makes this elegant man's look far from boring.

    Great color combinations! I do like the theme running in this and the past two photos. Some of us can't pull off the orange hair from yesterdays photo but the orange scarf is a definite!

    If he'd take away the orange shawl, it'd look to fall-like, but with it, it's perfect for spring!

    Not my fave outfit, but the tie of the scarf is very dégagé & effective, & shows a good eye.

    I've seen this man here before and think it's very elegant. those colors are very flattering and male.

  42. Davidikus

    February 9, 2010 at 11:15 am

    Wonderful style! The grey, the patterns, and even the blue shirt make the orange & brown less aggressive than it would be in many cases (think 1970s fashion)

    Superb fit jacket. Could you tell whether the breast pocket is patched or beson? Can´t tell from the angle.

    Young men must be schooled to understand the effectiveness as well as balance of a shocking piece of color. Whether it be around the neck, waist, or ankles, a dash of color is always a welcome compliment to any grounded ensemble!

    I have 5 young sons. From growing up in an all girl family, my interest in fashion is now quite male orientated. This look inspires me to dress up my sons. Dashing.

    Brown and Orange… flawless! But they always are! There is more to it, though… I can feel the cool, crisp air and the warmth of the sun. He's the masterpiece and the backdrop fades to a blur. I luv it!

    No. Too tight and too precious, although the colours are good. You've shown him before and he does have rather good taste….

    A fabulous palete of materials:corduroy, cashmere, wool plaid & I'm sure cashmere scarf. Beautifully aligned colors, with soft blue dress shirt, mmm..Yummy
    Please let's not forget, matched plaid, the fit; tailored to perfection. My favorite a rolled lapel. Man of Style

    I would describe the ensomble as eclectic and intelligent… on someone else. Note the unhealthy glow to his complexion, Orange, is clearly not his colour
