    I love the monochrome, but the whole shot gets elevated to another level by the fact that he has his hat off..

    Ah, spring really is coming, isn’t it? What lovely details: the scarf, that hat, the necklace, and that hair. Here’s a striking, seemingly effortless man. Beautiful.

    Yet again: greys, greys, greys. Yes! I can’t get enough of them :)). Gorgeous.
    And very, very interesting man.

    I’ve only left one other comment on here, and that was for a friend of mine. All I have to say is PERFECTION!

    This is classic Paris, an effortless yet meticulous look, and his face is wonderful — nonchalant with a hint of a smirk. And, of course, Parisians know how to tie a good scarf.

    Oh. He is dashing indeed. I like the subtle references to Paris in his attire. Black and White Stripes, cigarrette, fedora, beautiful person. Slightly ironic in a lovely, calm, casual way.

    enough with the scarves already. at a point it makes no fashion statement other than baa baa.

    This is a beautiful look.
    I love your older subjects. They face the camera in such an assured and tranquil way.
    Hope to see the “silver fox femme” again soon.

    it’s the shades of grey that really makes this work – i’d love to see this shot in black and white.

    This is very chic and simple–exactly what I’d expect in Paris. It’s also true androgynous dressing; it would look equally great on a man or a woman without “compromising” masculinity or femininity.

    Love all the different shades of grey! Fantastic hair and beard too.

    the gently rumpled look works well with his face, hair and physical type.

    unreal look, mixes highs of the fedora and leather with lows of cargos. Beautiful chain which is layered over scarf. nice work!

    The grays are work together beautifully, and I love the amulet peeking out underneath the scarf…but what really makes this photograph for me is the slightly raised eyebrow and the relaxed but slightly haughty air of a man who’s laid back and confident. I may be a college student, but to me this expression is the epitome of cool.

    The greys and his facial expression give off a calm, cool, and collective look! I love it!

    Would never have given him a second look on the street but then again, the scarf, the wonderful way the fabric folds around his neck and accents the vertical lines in the jersey. I very much agree with the post about the older subject’s faces; visions of serenity and competence no matter what their walk of life has been.

    Are you seeing the pendant? That refines a gamin look I see all the time in Paris, never tire of. And such lovely fingers.

    Under the beard lies a great face. He needs a shave, haircut, manicure, a grey suit, white shirt, black knit tie and suede tassels. He’d look brilliant.

    it’s the hat. has been since the 30′s; finish a look-or anchor a look around a true Vintage Fedora, quality goods-and it feels all there, visually. The range and scope of hats is such that whatever statement is being made, the hat reinforces it-like a quick jab from a good boxer. it’s the hat.

    He is GORGEOUS. Clothing, face, stance. Despite the carcinogen tool in his hand.

    even though the hat is too self conscious, I love the look. Japanese can pull this off, but it really says “man of leisure”
