    This is the face of man in love..wedding ring still shiny after what probably is many years of happiness. And what woman, at any age, wouldn't love to see her man dressed like this? He is lovely, loved and in love…so wonderful to see happiness and style combined into one person. Isn't that a hope for us all…?

    GENUINE NONCHANLANCE. Not the calculated variety.
    I'll bet this wonderful man has had his camel coat for YEARS! That is the value of buying really good clothes … And taking care of them.
    In my opinion, his hat is a Trilby. (Tiny distinctions separate it from a Fedora.)

    this guy likes quality… maybe he's owned that coat for a long time. It has some wear on the breat pocket… but nice quality. He is stylish! There's a beauty in hands of older people. I care for a lady in the last stage of her life… I can relate. Also I was just reminded of a beautiful picture of a detailed shot of my grandparents holding hands. Its a picture of their hands. Hands are so much a part of who a person is.

    Something I've been appreciating lately is freckles. And how fashionable they are. I was over on the Style Rookie, and she had some pictures of faces so freckly even lips were covered.

    But.. The thing that attracts me even more than the freckles, is the simple wedding band on his old hands.

    Love this picture. So beautiful.

  155. A Perfect Find

    February 1, 2011 at 11:04 am

    This picture brings tears to my eyes. It reminds me so much of my father. Not so much the face, but how this stylish, classic gentleman is dressed. My father was from a generation of gentlemen; where even on a flight he would wear a suit and a tie – that generation is fast dwindling, I'm afraid. Let's hope we remember, learn and continue the art of dressing. Thank you for this photo.

    Wonderful, I just read about you on Chase Jarvis' blog. I watched a video with you on the streets of New York. What you're doing is so interesting and wonderful. I'm clearly not the first to notice

    My great uncle, a former army general, looked that elegant in his old age.

    I've been looking at posts for a while and this was the first that prompted me to comment! I love when older people still care about style.

    I think “Gent” is a lot better reference than “Old Man,” which you sometimes use and, in this day and age, seems too derogatory. Although, considering the body of your work, I’m sure it is not intentionally so.
