    i have ever think that it is just important what you wear but more important is how you wear it that totally difference a outfit a nice dress can look good but on some people the same dress look so much better the same is in that picture his outfit isnÂŽt so special it is just the kind of he wearing it

    Very suave. Like the colour of the suit with the green scarf.

    there's the touch of green again… i'm struggling to get this trend in this bottle shade of green… love a brighter green such as viviana's gloves in a recent shot

    Not yet an old codger at least from my own persepctive! Lovely picture.
    You can see how well the jacket fits without seeing the details. (I will send this to my husband and brother. I am fanatical about fit.)

    Love also the traditional white shirt, white hankerchief. Sharp.

    I love the green scarf. An interesting point of colour which the black one.

    The steps/stripes in the background make for an incredible natural frame. Also, the cut of his jacket really could not be better.

    Very dynamic photo with those vertical and horizontal lines. I just had a flashback to a photography assignment I had in Design school!
    There's that green again. Love it.

    It's interesting how everything can be transformed with a single detail – the deep-green scarf.
    This man is a true sartorialist!

    I love the way this chap wears the scarf, it just drapes perfectly. It's always good to see the everyday worn with a twist. The suit is elegance personified just by the fit. I certainly don't see this as a picture of an old geezer. I wish I could see the shoes, I'm guessing their something well made and timeless. Any gentleman should aspire to look this stylish. Another reminder of why tailoring is king after the teenage years.
    On another note, I think it's always easier to act like a gentleman when you look and feel the part. Mr Tweed

    Great smile ! He makes me think of Marcello Mastroianni even thoug he doesn't look like him…It's just the way he stands, the way he smiles, the elegance.

    Supremely confident pose. I especially like the asymmetry of the tie knot, which bespeaks a certain quirk of character.

    comfortable yet sharp from the smile to the stance.

    What a smile! He is so "at home" in his own style. I love the green (here we go again) scarf and the loosened collar. Tres chic. He is very sexy!

    I love the forest green scarf! A very sophistocated and mature way to add colour to an outfit!

    ALRIGHT I'm convinced. I need to get out here and gather some green essential items for myself.

    I need to take advantage of THIS!

    the cut of the jacket, the green scarf, the knot in his tie, the smile…he's found the perfect mix of looking put together without looking like he's trying too hard.

    It's good to remember that a smile is a priceless accessory.

    Normally menswear is quite boring to me, but the gentlemen featured on your blog the past week have been so compelling. I don't know if it's because they're mature, or Italian, or simply stylishly put-together in their own unique way, but I'm loving these photos!


    P.S. – It's probably a combination of all 3!

    The green scarf is an odd choice over a blue suit but it works great.

    CanÂŽt tell if the suit is navy or black. Slightly underexposed. But nice to have pictures again!!!

    On my computer, at first the scarf looked black, not green. I had to study the picture closely, at which point the man said something I couldn't quite catch! Perhaps he thought my manners were bad?

    (that was a joke)

    Love the just off-kilter tie and hastily tucked scarf. True style comes out of a confidence that's not self-conscious at all, and therefore not 'perfect'.

  51. Nancy

    February 3, 2010 at 2:12 pm

    How simple. The scarf really cinches the whole look — brings it to a level of elegance. Not to mention how handsome the gentleman is. Keep smilin' baby!

    A very well tailored suit. OTOH, what appears to be a black tie with his navy suit makes him appear as if he has to attend a funeral sometime that day. A brighter tie would match his bright smile.

  66. Sophisticated Misfit

    February 3, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    I have hundreds of ties – a bit of a collector, really, ranging from rare Hermes, Ferragamo, etc. yet I rarely wear one. When I take the time to wear one, the knot is perfect. I find it in bad form to sport one as though just stepping out of a tavern with shirt button undone. I would rather go without. Sprezzatura it isn't.

    Ah.. now this is the kind of man I would like to share a coffee or a glass of wine with, that fabulous smile which looks like it gets used often, would make him an engaging companion I think. Thank you for the lovely photograph.

    Monsieur Jacques is on your blog at least second time (as far as I remember)… The way he uses his scarf makes me cry!!! It's an art as such! And his face / his smile – for me, personally is the LIVING 100 % PROOF THAT GRACE
    - has no gender;
    - has no age;
    - has no nationality

    He just emits tons of grace and graceful attitude. J'adore :)

    That's one of the plusses about getting older, there is a whole new territory of self expression.
