    Incredible blazer! I love the layering here–including two different pieces of denim on top! Who would have thought it would look this perfect?

    wow!!! what a great capture, he looks so relaxed and cheeky. and the clothes just create such interest. i watched your doco "visual life", i've watched it a few times and i can't tell you what an amazing thing it was to hear that my not-yet-placed creativity is not lost, and is actually where you begun and in a sense still live. i love that you think of it as a freedom to not have a specific art that you linger in. really you inspired me and showed me something i have struggled with for a long time. so thanks!

    The beard doesn't work with this. It makes him look homeless.

    This is soo inspiring!!
    I think this is my third comment in your blog but I have been visiting for quite sometime, I just realized that i have only left comments in guy's pics and I didn't do it on purpose. I think it's because it's more usual to see beautiful and stylish women in general. Even when I love the girl's pics I'm lazy and don't comment but with awesome man's pictures i get so lifted upon my feet. I guess I just love to see a man with a great different style who owns it! I wish there were more of those around where i live, in the meantime I do my sightseeing in your blog!!**cheers

    January 24, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    This could so easily look messy (in a bad way) or kooky-in-a-contrived-way, but the guy has enough of a gentleman's gait to pull it off. He looks accidentally suave.

    The patch work on the little matching tartan bow, the vest, the jacket, and even the key holder "D", doulbe alyer of jean shirt and jean blazer! I don't know any man would pull off that look but himself then.

    This is so far my favourite photo this winter and the reason is authenticity. The unkept (no make up) face fits the way he dressed here and it does not seem like he is making a fashion statement. Reminds me of a peasant in rural Italy or a cowboy from Texas.

    I like how he layers denim over denim. The vest gives a country feeling to contrast with the city vibes the denim gives. And I absolutely love his that cute little bow. A really cool look with a bit of cheekiness!

    OUT of categorie DANDY…….pure genius. He sooo knows what he is doing. One can see incredibly well dressed men, cooly dressed men, one's that pull it off without trying, however, Yep, out of categorie. Personally, I give him my Oscar for the One who touched my soul with his Way. Oh, yes, this is a declaration of Love……

    A beard always makes a man look older than what he is and when it´s untrimmed like that it tends to make him look like an old hippie-relic. The outfit is original, though ..

    I have always been a fan of tweed/oatmeal coloured checks with denim. Perfect together. Love his chain, love his look, but find the beard a little straggly. I would prefer it more soigné, as the hippy aspect isn't really my thing. Having said that, he is a gorgeous man and you can just SEE that he's the right kind of human being. If he's Italian too, that's the cherry on the cake….

    Love everything but the jacket. A little too precious for me, but would be adorable on a child. This look would be perfect with a beat up corduroy jacket or a chunky sweater, or just nothing but the vest and shirts as is. He's got a very charming face and I love the belt and the hardware.

    My favorite part is his big bushy beard. It reminds me of the grownup handsome I used to get crushes on when I was a kid in the 70s.

    The juxtaposition between this gentleman's hair, his hat, his patches and faded coat (my favorite element) and the dapper plaid vest, layering of color, belt and hardware detail, is simply divine. It's like he owns his clothes in saying," I like shabby when it's has decorum, and I'm so proud of my shabbiness, I'm dressing it to the max" The red ties on the plaid patches are so brilliant and the bow….wow! Like diamonds in dust….this photo exemplifies how informal meets formal and all the rules come tumbling down. The hair and beard are precisely what makes this story so complete. Thank you so much for another wonderful photo!

    this look is so studied and specific. It would taste like a costume but for his face and the commitment of the big beard and long hair. He means it!

    I get the impression spilling red wine on his couch wouldn't be a problem. He wouldn't diss someone for the choices they make, even if they were the opposite of his own. He looks like he sees beyond appearances. If I had to describe him in two words (which of course I don't!) I would say: 'angst free.'
