    Oh you've featured this gentleman before, at least I think so. He is so handsome and so very happy. I love his worn out shoes and no socks with the obviously stylish trench. Great shot!

    Alright already – so it's not a Vespa…I wish I had the patience for such a beard. What a helmet too, just missing a little propeller on it maybe?

    CeCe got it, it's a Piaggio Liberty from a few years ago, but Scott already said it's NOT a Vespa in the title! Both are made by Piaggio of course.

    Love the shot, happiness is two wheel fun! Classy trench sans belt.

    Yes, this is Robert – there's a shot of him in the same trench in Scotts book.

    How nice to see The Sartorialist featuring some smart fashion. It is refreshing to finally see a helmet in one of these shots! A helmet is sexier than a head injury…

    the boat sneakers and rolled up trousers lend an air of laid back California.
    proof that a genuine smile is the best accessory which everyone should wear.

    a big smile with some beard is something that your clothes can't provide. but that adds more character and individuality, and timeless!

    I could not possibly agree more with the use of this photo! What charm and lust for life radiates from this man. The sunshine-yellow helmet simply reinforces the love for life and the desire to continue on for years to come.

    As somebody who utilizes a longboard as my main method of commuting, I cannot emphasize enough the necessity for a helmet. Go ahead and don your favorite baubles, your finest slacks; embrace your style as you see fit. Above all else, though, embrace your brain. A simple piece that may not easily slip into your daily dressing, a helmet will certainly ensure that you have many more ahead of you.

    Three cheers for this man and The Sartorialist for bringing safety to the fashion forefront, intentionally or not!

    Who in the H – - L cares what kind of motorbike he's riding??????? The photograph and its contents are what we are supposed to be appreciating. We should all be as happy and carefree as this gentlemen is.

    Real style ain't just about clothes. But classic shoes and a high-dollar raincoat do help carry the message that this dude is not only a gentleman, but a sartorialist as well.

    Who makes the trench coat? It is wonderful, especially the holes underneath the arms.

    I'm wondering where you shot this from and what you said to this handsome man to get that gorgeous grin! I don't think I've ever smiled so broadly (or prettily) in my life.

    Ooo! It's a Piaggio Liberty!! I have the exact same bike, but in cherry red! *Bless*

    Sadly, Piaggio changed the shape of the body slightly a couple years ago, and it's not nearly so stylish in my opinion…

    'Elegant' Italian people have one big issue according to me: "If you have seen one of them.. you have seen them all".
    Absolutely not to be compared to the NYC/Paris/London scene..
