Corduroy jackets are wonderful. He's looking great! French way of living at its best. I want to go to Paris....


Blogger Aaron said ... (9:12 AM) : 

Nice ensemble.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (9:17 AM) : 

I dont believe I had ever seen jacket pockets like his, perhaps this is a hunting jacket? If anyone can enlighten me, I will appreciate it. He reminds me of the guy that does the vintage research for RL, who has been on your page before? I like the play with the textures of the corduroy vs. the red scarf. Jorge from WPB

Love the jacket!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:11 AM) : 

yesssss this guy is so sick he can not only redeem cargo pants but make them look cool. be advised though, if you aren't as awesome as him, don't try at home


Blogger cordoba said ... (11:20 AM) : 

cool chap:) @jorge: the jacket style is called maremmana, it origins from tuscany/italy. Capalbio makes these for example...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:29 AM) : 

How funny that you two were outed by le Libe...adorable. I've been a fan of both for a long time!

This man is my destiny! Such a glorious pimp factor..


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (11:42 AM) : 

Wow. Walt Whitman is alive and well in Paris. Handsome as all get out. I hope Mr. Cutey Pants ages this well.

Blogger M A Z P E said ... (12:37 PM) : 

iconic picture and character


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

what a great picture. this man probably doesn't even consider himself to be a stylish person... i'm sure in the morning he just throws on whatever he feels like wearing. that's what makes it so perfect tho... being stylish and not even realizing it


Blogger Thomas said ... (1:45 PM) : 

Beautifully aged...


Blogger bigdeal said ... (1:53 PM) : 

Love this picture. The way the outfit mixes perfectly with the buildings and sky - and the look he's giving. Wow!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:10 PM) : 

It's so difficult to find the right context for cargo pants nowadays.


Blogger UES boy said ... (2:37 PM) : 

This guy's been there and done that....whatever it is you can think of.


Blogger Mad Hatter said ... (3:10 PM) : 

great photo, love his look.


Anonymous Paula Maack said ... (3:32 PM) : 

Isn't that John Talbot? Seriously. Is it? Because it sure looks like him.

Blogger CW said ... (3:50 PM) : 

This man looks like some old pictures of old artists. One commenter wrote "Monet?" I think more like Pissarro.

Blogger Good-Grace said ... (6:53 PM) : 

Handsome gentleman.


Blogger Anthea said ... (7:18 PM) : 

Wow ! He looks so stylish. Do you ever stop and chat with some of the people you take photos of? I would love to know his story! Check out my photos from Osaka if you have a chance!


Blogger HEK said ... (7:22 PM) : 

So authentic. Great picture:)


Blogger leilanigl said ... (7:31 PM) : 

oh, he is wonderful. He looks a little like my boss, Lee the old-school cowboy, but without the horse.


Blogger travelbug said ... (9:23 PM) : 

The Old Man and the Seine.

Perfect hat, and fantastic beard.

Blogger Lucky girl said ... (3:01 AM) : 

Eyecatching old man.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:21 AM) : 

Looks really like Philippe Noiret in his later days...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:14 AM) : 

He has so much character. And a great jacket. Actually, is it a jacket or coat? Not so keen on the combats, but you can't have everything


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:38 AM) : 

This is on Pont des Arts and not Rue de Rivoli as mentionned in the post.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:53 AM) : 

I sport a corduroy jacket on a regular basis that is this same color, but the cut of the pockets isn't nearly as cool or as utilitarian. I'm very interested in these maremmana jackets now.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:28 PM) : 

I would like to point out that Monsieur appears to be wearing cargo pants.


Blogger Bratique Helene said ... (4:53 PM) : 

DUDE, you found my dad!! I didn't know he went to Paris.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:18 PM) : 

it's portraits like this that keep me coming back to your website at least once a week.

What a fantastic looking gentleman.


Blogger HC said ... (12:38 AM) : 

So this is what santa claus is doing in March.


Blogger Chrissy said ... (12:51 AM) : 

Great photo. Exactly the kind of photo makes this blog unique and worth reading.


Anonymous Guga said ... (8:02 AM) : 

My Grandma has a paintin on the wall... and this man looks exactly like the one on it... gives me chills to look at him...his clothin is average...but i love the attitude...go granpa

Blogger Marina said ... (4:13 PM) : 

Incredible. He looks like someone out of a Kerouac novel or something. Beautiful photograph!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:50 PM) : 

How wonderful! Age has taught him who he is! I love this! Thank you.


Blogger The Catapult Kid said ... (10:53 PM) : 

Isn't it really the look he's giving and the cigar in his mouth that make this outfit outstanding?


Blogger C.L.B said ... (4:10 AM) : 

Very Ernest Hemingway! Great nonchalant pose and well worn in jacket. The cigar makes it.


Anonymous Olivia said ... (5:04 AM) : 

This man is the bartender of a really old Parisian brasserie at Chatelet. He's been there forever.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:24 AM) : 

Yes I find this man very appealing and his look is attractive w/out pretention. I hope he has NOTHING to do w/ RL! please!, could we have some relief already?!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:16 PM) :

Blogger Reginald said ... (11:26 AM) :

Its Wanny di Philippo of course - the designer of cult florentine leather brand Il Bisonte! He's a living, breathing fashion moment! J.

Blogger Gaurav said ... (1:25 AM) : 

great character but im not impressed with the cargo pockets !


Blogger Sophie said ... (8:07 AM) : 

His name is Wanni di Fillipo - he runs the Florentine leather goods company il Bisonte. He is a champion alright, don't you worry yourselves about that. He was in Paris for the Miepel I'll bet.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:50 AM) : 

perfect style....not a fan of the cargo pants but this is one exception

thank you


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:19 PM) : 

Reminds me of a Norman Rockwell painting.
