    Love that collar. It is such a chic look. His jacket is nice too. He looks like he is in deep thought about something, wonder what is on his mind.

    I don't generally like club collars, but this guy makes it work. I think due in large part to the very minor stubble, which prevents this look from being too 'polished'.

    Very nice shot.

    early 1960's feel to this photo…
    the hair, the height of the tie, the collar..
    combine this with the new narrowness of men's trousers and jackets ..and you have a narrow there is a sleekness which has overtaken men's apparel.

    I always wanted Club collars!!!
    They seem less common compare to those "working" collars??? i don't know term.

    But judging from his hair, tie, suit. This guy has got it all perfected :)

    wish i could see his whole look!!!

    He's pulling this collar off nicely. Not many guys can because it's very "aristocraty." But, if you're so inclined, this is the way to do it. With a glen plaid suit and slim knit tie. I can see this bloak walking through London with an umbrella and attaché case.

    Going back to new wave? Not only the collar, but the striped tie and the haircut. Wonder if he has a pair of Doc Martin boots on with that jacket? :)

    Very Brideshead Revisited. Not everyone could pull this off, but because of his slender lines, I think it works. On someone bigger, I think it would be too Peter Pan-ish and look ridiculous.

    A club collar never looks right without a gold collar pin. (Period.)

    I saw a film of you on fuji files and it actually made me cry. you look so sincere and passionate about your photography. to me you determine fashion, although it is not your first goal, but i love the fact how you see the world, we can learn so much from it. i love to watch people sitting on a terrace with a coffee. but you make such a beautiful compilation. I check out your blog everyday because it always makes me go like ooohhh and aahhh. please keep on making the world a little bit more beautiful with your photography

    never saw such a collar – i feel it gives an androgyne/feminine soft touch compared to the usual collars, which needs a man very sure of his masculinity to wear it. He doesn't need to stress and show that he is a man, he just is one.

    i find it always astonishing how such a little detail can tell so much about a person and inspire so many speculations.

    love, barbara

    I did not realise that this is called a club collar. Karl Lagerfeld wore a slightly narrower and taller version of that collar for years. If anyone knows the name (& where to get oen), I am all ears.

Please consider that perhaps most of your blogees are young females and sometimes we like to look at well-dressed boys that make our pulses race!
