Professor or not, I could learn a few things from this man about personal style.


Blogger Pumpkin Man said ... (6:57 PM) : 

Huh, what does he teach? Does not look like a fashion professor...or is he?
Ok, style to my taste...

The electric colours on the V-neck sweater are beautiful. Wow! Especially against the dark jacket, yes yes...


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (7:23 PM) : 

Uber cool. Love the horizontal and vertical stripes.

None of his look could possible work without that BEAUTIFUL mane of silver envious. Watch out Anderson Cooper!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 PM) : 

he looks great but, just for the sake of accuracy; the coolest professor ever was - obviously - art garfunkel in nic roeg's 'bad timing' one of the most stylish films ever - there's a month of features in nic roeg for the sartorialist: 'performance', 'the man who fell to earth'... there; a modest suggestion...

This is (Prof.) Hirofumi Kurino from United Arrows. He is one of the most powerful men in the Japanese fashion business.


Anonymous dinnerjacket said ... (9:44 PM) : 

Love the patterns, but it's his cool attitude that gives him such panache...


Anonymous AnonymousJK said ... (9:54 PM) : 

This guy gives academia a good name, fashion too come to think of it!


Anonymous kamo said ... (10:02 PM) : 

he looks like my architecture history professor :)


Blogger Butch said ... (10:23 PM) : 

Yup, he's got it together.

Funny--we assume that a teacher has little regard for or interest in what he or she wears. So do we cut that person extra slack when he or she shows some fashion savvy?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:28 PM) : 

Just Perfect. Everything about this look. He doesn't have that "boxy wool suit" air that most of my professors did. It's casual, and unpredictable for a professor. I love it. The colors are amazing.

I wish i had a proffesor like him! so hot just because hes so cool! sexyyyyyy


Blogger Wintermute said ... (1:06 AM) : 

Physics. He teaches solid state physics. Ok, not really, but I can't help but think I would have learned A LOT more if I had a physics professor like this one! Sharp!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:27 AM) : 

WOW this guy is so cool!


Blogger FunBox Comedy said ... (1:59 AM) : 

If I came down with hypothermia I could never be that cool. Excellent photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:04 AM) : 

This is a professorial look, but this guy isn't a prof, right? Someone else said it already, he's a fashion exec.

I have a handsome friend who dresses like this, but he's a librarian, not a professor. But yes, he's blessed with beautiful silver hair.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:23 AM) : 

nice choice of colour and texture. I'm curious to see his footwear, too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:52 AM) : 

maybe this is the mysterious trovata professor...


Blogger landis said ... (9:03 AM) : 

i think this guy works in our office.

he's the one you're always convinced is going to start shooting first.

it's just a good cardigan day for mr. rogers isn't happy with the neighborhood and is gonna do something about it.


Anonymous Chie said ... (9:34 AM) : 

I know about him.He is a very famous person for the fashion industry field of Japan.I saw him several times in Tokyo and always he is stylish.He found Kris van Asche maybe.
What I'd like to say...
He is a fashion professor,certainly.


Blogger michael said ... (9:56 AM) : 

anyone know who makes that blazer?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:58 AM) : 

he has the ralph lauren look


Anonymous Richard said ... (12:34 PM) : 

Nevertheless, he seems un peu coincé, hein?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:41 PM) : 

I'm wondering where to buy this kind of soft blazer-like jacket


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:16 PM) : 

Only in Paris. I go to university in a little swedish town where the professors are so bad dress It makes my eyes hurt.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:49 PM) : 

As a prof, I wish I looked this cool. What was the jacket's material - it looks real thick, almost looks like a sweater, too.

I also dig the WWII-ish style chinos. They also look thick and substantial.


Anonymous MarcL said ... (3:07 PM) : 

Aargh, you ruined my day, Sart : until now, I used to believe I was the coolest Professor ever in Paris ;-).


Blogger Gigi said ... (3:09 PM) : 

i'm going to guess art history, architecture or fashion.

or perhaps some combination of the three.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:20 PM) : 

I like his style.It is personal.ageless and yet so stylish.It looks so easy- as if he just grabbed it from his closet and never made a big issue of what to wear.But I do think he could visit a hairdresser.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:04 PM) : 

at first glance I disagreed with you, having spent the past three years working in at a university. ....but upon a much closer look: you are right. A+ for this professor.

Looks a little like "Striped, Milan" from Sept 29 a few posts down, no? Could be his dad.

very nice look. love the hair, balding but still fresh. cool neo-preppy outfit. nice shot.

Anonymous sat said ... (11:58 PM) : 

oo, i think i'm hot for teacher.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:39 PM) : 

I think good pictures are abound in your blog but this, like the "English girl in Paris", speaks to me in terms of colour contrast. His grey hair brings life and contrast to the grey walls. His outfit with what I see as primary colours is intellectually stimulating. The epitome of learning embodied in one man, his dress sense and the background.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:47 PM) : 

I love the sexy geek look. Can I stay after class so prof can go over those complicated concepts one more time, very very slowly? You know I'd do anything for an A...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:55 PM) : 

Love him. Also a very attractive professor I must add.


Blogger Leda said ... (9:04 PM) : 

Wow! I love his cool and level gaze. And especially his combination of solid/stripes. the colors are great and cool! love it!


Blogger Margot said ... (10:18 AM) : 

I want to see this with a crazy tie, and lower v-neck. Think it could look funky in a good way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:09 AM) : 

He is the head buyer of United Arrows: you can see him in an interview with Tim Blanks on
