Blogger Vintage and Stardust said ... (8:15 AM) : 

This man is very sweet! Love the yellow flower -so trendy;)


Blogger John Ndege said ... (8:36 AM) : 

Love those shoes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 AM) : 

You gotta be kidding me! I mean that in a good way.



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

He looks like an undercover-clown; but in a good way!


Blogger Dovid said ... (9:08 AM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 AM) : 

he really looks like a great guy, with tons of humor, but the oufit looks too unbalanced to me! sry


Blogger Butch said ... (9:24 AM) : 


The shoes-socks take guts and complete assurance, which he has.

PS, am noticing a trend--I believe it's a trend--of buttoning the top two buttons of jackets and coats...doing so can help emphasize line....


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:25 AM) : 

Wow - he looks fantastic! The primary mix works so dramatically!


Blogger Austin.Garnett said ... (9:29 AM) : 

the scarf makes it!

i saw an article about italian men cuffing their pants like that.. 'to show off his extensive shoe collection'


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:43 AM) : 

What really makes it for me are the socks. Perfect match for the shoes, and they draw just a little extra attention down there with the ankle-length pants.

The overall of the primary colors is lovely.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 AM) : 

yea!!!!! He's so cheerful! What a wonderful person to encounter on a winter day. Thanks for sharing.


Blogger Mitchell Weiss said ... (10:18 AM) : 

I love the colors of the whole ensemble. The scarf looks nice as does the bowler. Everything compliments each other. I really like the length of the pants in this instance. It is really playful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:31 AM) : 

maybe my favorite all time shot

thank you!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:34 AM) : 

Such whimsy! Such levity! A charming reminder that life springs eternal.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:38 AM) : 

Love the shoes, so innusual in this season


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:45 AM) : 

It's kinda clockwork orange...but in a good way. Nice combo.


Blogger nanashi said ... (10:57 AM) : 

I adore his sense of color (the light blue scarf, nice red shoes and vivid little yellow flower), the length of the pants is somehow working well with the coat, too (I usually find that length a bit tricky), great background contrast too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:03 AM) : 

Perfect. Boho style writ large... I mean LARGE.


Blogger BTrain said ... (11:17 AM) : 

The guy is Ignatious Joseph, the guy behind

I met him once in Duesseldorf and talked to him for a couple of minutes.

He always wears these red shoes and shorter pants. Individualist, but very stylish.


Blogger Michael Kalbo said ... (11:19 AM) : 

I love the yellow flower and the red shoes fantastic.


Blogger Richard said ... (11:28 AM) : 

He looks great if you don't look at his trousers. I have never been a fan of the Thom Browne look. I love the flower on his lapel, and the red shoes are interesting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:33 AM) : 

i just LOVE his outfit! it's so cute


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (12:19 PM) : 

Interesting pic, Sart. The trousers here are much too short, as other commentators have pointed out. And the colour of his socks and shoes? Bloody hell, NO! It simply doesn't work. Progress not perfection, I suppose.


Blogger Luiza Sauma said ... (12:24 PM) : 

Really playful and lovely...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:26 PM) : 

That's not a Thom Browne look!Mr Browne always forgets to put his socks on.
Back in the 1980's I was a bit of a skinhead, and this gentleman's appearance reminds me of those days, with a Crombie-esque overcoat, cropped trousers, and a shoe-and-sock-combination that looks at first glance like the oxblood Doc Martens we used to wear. That bowler makes it look even more English.
Youthful but dignified!


Blogger Turling said ... (12:30 PM) : 

Color combination is quite nice. However, I love the bowler. The flower is small enough to not be distracting. A very nice look.


Blogger Anthony said ... (12:48 PM) : 

have you posted this picture before? or was it in gq or something? It looks remarkably familiar.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:14 PM) : 

I love the images wherein men really are really using color effectively. Why should women have all the fun?


Blogger Vistiendo a Candela said ... (1:48 PM) : 

This men is so sweet


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:24 PM) : 

The overall outfit is ok. But the shoes!! they must go! they look like they were found at a clown shop or something like that


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:36 PM) : 

This picture made me smile, and I was having a bad day so far. Thank you sir.


Blogger Anne Corrons said ... (3:29 PM) : 

Those shoes are incredible! I also appreciate the little yellow touch that makes a wonderful look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:45 PM) : 

Hating the red Ronald McDonald size clown shoes. To me it is totally distracting from an otherwise charming look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:59 PM) : 

Great..till you get to the shoes, which add an unnecessary dose of Ronald Mcdonald.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:02 PM) : 

Nothing to say!!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:08 PM) : 

i love this! dress-y with a fun touch of color. how charming. this makes me happy.


Blogger X said ... (7:37 PM) : 



Blogger Asi Mod said ... (7:57 PM) : 

The shoes and yellow flower shine in the beautiful hues of navy and blue. And they look good on him.


Blogger whyioughtta said ... (8:00 PM) : 

His confidence shines even more brightly than his awesome red shoes :^)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:18 PM) : 

He looks remarkably like a sad clown to me. It works, though in an odd way.


Blogger reverend dick said ... (8:19 PM) : 

That's a FUN look. He's got a sense of humor in addition to a sense of style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:13 PM) : 

Yes, I agree with the person who said the shoes have to go. Not a fan, but the rest of the look is charming.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:17 PM) : 

i adore this outfit on him. it seems so sweet and suits him to a tee.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:19 AM) : 

do not even think of messing with this guy. seriously.
i give him untold kudos for wearing a propoer man's hat, and a bowler at that. it's a lost art these days. and that flower,in winter? c'mon, how can you deny this guys level of coolness?


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

LOVE the shoes - mmmm, red!

and... i think i spy a south asian man, possibly the first i can remember seeing here! what a cutie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:28 AM) : 

he looks so cheeky! love it all - the shoes, the flower, the scarf...very cool and at the same time quite distinguished!


Blogger momo said ... (8:16 AM) : 

My baby's first pair of shoes were red. Red shoes to me are joie de vivre. And here, he has placed his feet just so, because he loves his red shoes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:54 AM) : 

Adorable! He is straight out of a fashion fairytale.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 AM) : 

Sart, you should come to mumbai. The streets are full of people dressed like this.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:43 AM) : 

"The guy is Ignatious Joseph, the guy behind"

Ooooooh, it always makes me kinda sad to find out that these wonderful individualists are models or designers or otherwise connected to the fashion industry.

This picture made me much happier when I imagined that this was just an anonymous little man enjoying his quiet life with a happy and benignly defiant flare.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:32 PM) : 

It's a very playful look. I like it.


Blogger ricpic said ... (12:48 PM) : 

Those shoes put him awfully close to joker territory.


Blogger Benedict said ... (1:09 PM) : 

I love the way he has tied his scarf; not such a striking detail as the flower, the shoes or the hat, but just as important to the ensemble


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:39 PM) : 

red shoes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:04 PM) : 

There's a thing called a fashion statment...

the dark, deep, mystic colours on him are there...BAM, there's the shoes & the flower..

now THAT's a "fashion landmark !"


Blogger AdamfromVA said ... (4:55 PM) : 

the shoes could be more subtle, everything else is immaculate.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:36 PM) : 

without the shoes i don't believe this would have attracted as much attention...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:41 PM) : 

He looks Indian,
He looks terrific,
He has the proportions right.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:02 PM) : 

So perfect for a gray winter day.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:20 PM) : 

very sophisticated. great shoes !!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:08 PM) : 

This gentleman has a great sene of both style and humor. The brown derby is the perfect somber foil to the outlandish (in a good way)shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:29 PM) : 

I love everything about brim of the hat--the color, the direction to the viewer.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:03 PM) : 

His shoes and socks are fantastic!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:22 PM) : 

perfection, flawless, 5 stars.
wow, I'm so taken by this man.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:31 PM) : 

love him! :)


Blogger blah said ... (2:20 AM) : 

Sart??!! ARe you here in Hong Kong!! you didnt tell us!! - but the SCMP has!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:34 AM) : 

Can't see what there is to love!? Although his outfit is nice, you can't see it because of his awful clown shoes. The hat color doesn't go with his face either, for some reason. Btw, has red shoes EVER been nice???


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:16 AM) : 

The red shoes spoil it. They look clownish as others have commented and they attract the eye away from his nice face and the good tailoring of his coat.


Blogger Colleen said ... (3:45 AM) : 

straight from neo-realist reverie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:10 PM) : 

It makes me feel happy just to look at him. I'd love to follow him all week to see what he wears.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:26 PM) : 

The hat and the fabulous red shoes make this outfit complete- fantastic color combination


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:26 PM) : 

He belongs in a film - so bold and confident! A beautiful, colorful look that retains all of its masculinity.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:07 PM) : 

Could he possibly be any cooler??


Love the way he combined those primary colours.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:40 AM) : 

I wonder what his profession is.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 AM) : 

Certainly made me smile.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:11 AM) : 

His name is Ignatious Joseph and he owns the ign.joseph label, a Switzerland based high end shirt company.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:21 PM) : 

the whole silhouette looks so modern. and balance of colours with primary spots works perfectly!
little yellow flower...nice!

thanks for this!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:07 AM) : 

Absolute fabulous, sophisticated whimsey, and the red shoes would never work without the yellow flower -- the artful piece-de-resistance.


Blogger Kits said ... (2:30 AM) : 

Loved the yellow flower and his red shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:18 AM) : 

Gee, these shoes are fabulous. I wish I had a pair of them.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:35 PM) : 

this dude has major balls!

but i must admit, outfit is pretty gangster....


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:36 PM) : 

Oh, I enjoy this visual very much. Really, it's the hat that brings it all together.


Blogger Terri said ... (2:55 PM) : 

This man clearly has a sense of humor.....and a real joie de vivre.....he made me laugh out loud.....cute!!! LOVE the flower and the RED shoes......

i love it! he just makes you want to smile!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:21 AM) : 

Isn't that mr. Ignatious Joseph?
Always with red shoes?!


Blogger JRenee said ... (10:04 AM) : 

I love that he has rolled his pants up to reveal his red socks..which perfectly coordinate with the yellow flower. I want to see what he is wearing under his coat..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:40 AM) : 

I love his shoes!
I love rich color and he does it really nice.


Blogger doanything24 said ... (1:06 PM) : 

Oh my gosh-- this is fabulous. I love the color choices he made-- the yellow flower and red shoes contrasting the blues. Very original, yet classy. He pulls it off.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:07 AM) : 

At a glance, the yellow flower looked like the yellow star of David to me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:15 PM) : 

Utmost class. It is, I think ,the frist time that I LOVE short trousers. He is beautiful and all the shades of blue look heavenly.


Anonymous Martina said ... (8:36 PM) : 

I was clicking through the whole website and there are so so many pics of older people that are dressed like models!! Wow! I'm very impressed!
Cheers, Martina

the red shoes are so stunning, and also the yellow thing on his coat.
