    a slightly eccentric look done with beautifully crafted pieces is always breathtaking……cause it only distinguishes the wearer as a person of thought and taste. it’s something that doesn’t come together by accident.

      I concur. well articulated. I found another shot of this man for the first time yesterday. I find his eyes startling, mysterious and beautiful. They are what, for me, makes has outfits look stunning.

    Love the shues bag, hat and gloves in one colour and then the blue coat. Great!! When people put thought and effort into dress like this it makes you happy. Seem rare today. Think people were better at coordinating colour before. Better at thinking there outfit through. Like my grandmother. She put effort into matching colours. It all had to go together. Thanks for a nice post!

    With love from

    Okay… I LOVE the bag, gloves, and shoes, but still cannot get onboard with the flood-ready pants. WHY!? I fine cuff that settles at the top lace would perfect this look.

    I hate the hat + the bag + the shoes…too matchy matchy!

    I love the beret and the shoes are very sharp. I almost wish he brought some more pattern in with the socks but I guess it’s simplicity compliments the rest of the look.

    Gloves, bag, hat, scarf…this guy knows how to carry accessories with class! I like how his exposed ankles and vacant/fixed expression add to the quirkiness!

    January 16, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    Excelent taste! The choice of colors is elegant and just beautiful. The beret is shocking in a man but he can pull it off! I just think the bag is a little bit too much.

    This is a worldly man who realizes that the greatest pleasures in life is a pair of open eyes, to see the subtle details can make a simple thing grand.

    January 16, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    he dresses so old so fine. and the face looks so haunted. it’s like i don’t want to look sexy today like i usually do. i like his hi fashion pose like he is already in charactors. he is just so different.

    the big cuffed’s usually something personal but the more we talk of it the more it appears in streets. i bumped into one of my favs of online shops and they’re already putting on shelvs thoses really big cuffed pants. and i have to say they’re pairing down with some really slim and slouchy socks subdued colors or patterns to reveal a pair of dainty ankles.

    That may well be the most beautiful pair of shoes I’ve seen.

    Striking look . Head turning.

    A bit weird in its precision like a complicated swiss warch, but still weird in a good sense.

    If I could keep only one component it would be the shoes.

    A big kiss from Greece!

    Hooley dooley, what a great winter look.
    Makes me think of Jacques Tati Mon Oncle.
    Absolutely love those brogues.
    Must keep on top of the socks supply to pull this one off.

    I don’t find this eccentric. It is v. traditional and it is perfection. What a dear young man.

    The other morning, after fighting my way through a throng of unmannerly students coming from the subway and resembling a march in some obscure gulag, a beautiful young man wearing a camel coat and shoes just like this young man swept his hand back and stepped aside to let me pass. Not to judge by appearances merely, but he was elegant on the inside as well as the outside.

    simple, eccentric, strong – eyes, attitude, setting (lighting, wall and windows) like a renaissance painting by Botticelli:

    Is he single? Please tell me he’s single. Usually, I appreciate primarily the clothes, but in this shot, my eyes go straight to his stunning face and elegant height. He looks like he could be a modern nobleman – one wouldn’t be surprised if he introduced himself as Lord So-and-so…

    I keep trying to convince my husband to get a bag, so he will stop asking me to carry all of his stuff in my purse (keys, diet coke, sun glasses, phone, etc) When we are on vacation, I need to go to the chiropractor when I get home, for shoulder stress.
    Seriously though, I hope that bags catch on in America, because our poor guys have their pockets stuffed to the brim. They still see it as feminine.
