TA Timeless Shot! Love it! He reminds me of one of my uncles...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:12 PM) : 

Sart, did I see you last Saturday morning at the Marc Jacobs store in Paris?


Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (6:25 PM) : 

Kinda really debonair and dashing...the turtleneck is perfection.

No need to go b/w with this for circa 1930 look; even the Rollie bracelet works (and no Range Rovers floating down the Seine!). Superb subject/shot; we are all thinking "what is he thinking."


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:47 PM) : 

Simplicity. Hmm, sleek hair... Ascetic and interesting.


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (6:53 PM) : 

He has a great style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:06 PM) : 

That is a beautiful shot simply from the perspective of art. The clothes are what they are, but the photo is beautiful.

And can we please not have extended dialogue about the cigarette? The man smokes. Deal with it.

Oh, how fantastic. I just love this photo. He reminds me a bit of the actor Fredric March.


Blogger reverend dick said ... (8:55 PM) : 

elegant bastard.


Blogger Chi-Chi and the Greek Vintage said ... (8:59 PM) : 

I love the 1920's style hair. I worship his mix of black turtleneck, coat..(one could only assume it's cashmere) and navy pants. I'm thinking we should marry!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:35 PM) : 

everything. about him. is cool.


Blogger UESman said ... (9:37 PM) : 

great hair. nice roly too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:42 PM) : 

I am not sure if anybody has commented on this in recent sartorial history, but I can't focus on the beauty of the photos when the subject is smoking. Instead of noticing the stainless watch lurking in the shadows of the rich ebony topcoat, I am picturing the color of this man's lungs (probably the same color as his coat).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:24 PM) : 

Wow...the Garden of the Finzi-Continis.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:35 PM) : 

OMG! Effortless elegance. What a handsome man! Love the total look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:44 PM) : 

i love the way the navy pants stand out with the black trench and his slick hair great pic!


Blogger suzannemarques said ... (11:22 PM) : 

love the collar and the slicked back hair. penny for his thoughts while he smokes his cigarette


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:14 AM) : 

which movie did he fall out of?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:38 AM) : 

simple, effective, casual.....very well conducted....i love that shot....keep up the work sart


Blogger Bella07 said ... (1:03 AM) : 

A gentleman with a strong profile shot folding his arms in an almost political fashion looking sternly into the distance with an air of elegance and power.

Style meets power. That's the feeling your photo gives me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:00 AM) : 

Simply brilliant.

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

great pic, reminds me of mickey rourke: pose, haire and cigarette


Blogger Cheltenhamdailyphoto said ... (4:19 AM) : 

Ah. A coat which fits. Lovely. Tell me, do you pose your subjects or let them arrange themselves naturally? They all look so good.


Blogger Julie said ... (5:09 AM) : 

So so SO parisian ! more Rive Droite than Rive Gauche actually ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:58 AM) : 

I know this man and he's a regular kind of guy was prolly brushing a thought or two in the air surrounding you and wherebouts this photo would actually end, but then again we all like to indulge in some frivolti. And way good stuff to the photo on the bottom, love how she looks clueless too and that she doesn't know what take from this, in the backyard of somewhere so special, she has the look of trying to find more columbus or something. I couldn't do much better than to end here like that there.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:51 AM) : 

Wow! extremly smart style!
very sophisticated.
love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:40 AM) : 

A little too much like an advert for Old Spice cologne. It's always a risk when pairing a naval-style coat with a turtleneck sweater.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:07 AM) : 

hey Anon 9.42

ummm if he doesn't care about the colour of his lungs, why do you?


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

So simple, so stylish. And for a woman the same in off-white and beige and a subtle scarf? I am learning...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Interesting how so nasty habit like smoking may be so charming sometimes...


Blogger Karmander said ... (10:12 AM) : 

Lord have mercy. I don't think even MOVIE stars get it this perfect. He's mature, sophisticated, strong, Classic with a capital C...and sart, you out did yourself with this portrait. It is SO interesting and so multilayered and complex...and the model being as handsome as he is makes this absolutely irresistable. I wouldn't dare ask him what he's thinking and interrupt this stunner of a moment.


Blogger marchingbandemporium said ... (10:21 AM) : 

Very, very stylish. Clearly a man who has watched a lot of classic cinema.


Blogger OTC said ... (10:30 AM) : 

Another great image; I suddenly want to go read a John Le Carre novel.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:26 AM) : 

The Rive Gauche indeed.


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

Oh, my gosh! I would die to have his fingernails.


Blogger stephen said ... (11:48 AM) : 

He's got that "james bond villain" thing going on.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:00 PM) : 

Hello 1980's!


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (12:14 PM) : 

This is a classic photo, Sart. It's all about the attitude. The navy coat with upturned collar, cigarette, slicked-back hair, Paris setting. This pic oozes romance. Very well done.


Blogger missdelite said ... (1:20 PM) : 

His calm demeanor is the perfect accessory.


Blogger Fashionata said ... (2:12 PM) : 

This man and his style are simply fantastic. His look is very clean and strong and has been captured in a gorgeously iconic photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:16 PM) : 

Wow! He is the sophisticate of my dreams...the European love affair that I have missed the opportunity to have...

The polish and confidence coupled with restraint; nary a pair of Gap khakis or an ill-fitting sweater in sight (although those have their place...). Refreshing.


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

Lovely photograph!
Not too fond of colour combination for the turtleneck and topcoat, though. A light heather gray would have really made it.
Hair and pose are great though!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:59 PM) : 

a peacoat. yawn.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:24 PM) : 

Well, obviously the building in the background is Palais de Chaillot, hence the photo is taken on the left banks at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower and... well, this is not quite what we call "rive gauche". Rive gauche is the 5th, the 6th, the 7th if you wish but some areas of it (rue Cler, avenue de la Bourdonais) but pls NOT the crowed area in the middle of all the tourists, this is not very rive gauche, which indeed evokes a certain style and the guy on the photo certainly has this very elegant attitude: nice shot.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:06 PM) : 

Oo-la-la. He's got it all and his hands suggest he is a man of leisure.


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

Are you wearing make-up Phil? Dashing nonetheless. Well done old boy!


Blogger styleandsubstance said ... (9:34 PM) : 

a picture you just love to look at. So well done Sart. Kudos!

Hi Lucy--

I don't know what 9:42's feelings are about the issue of personal choice when it comes to smoking. I agree with you that this guy has every right to smoke morning, noon and night.

But in this photo, smoking is clearly being held up as stylish--as it clearly is in this photograph. I adore The Satorialist, but he has shown on many occasions a beautifully dressed person wagging a butt. Having watched my mother die from lung cancer, lemme tell you: it ain't glamorous. And I hate to think that young people are being sent the message that smoking is.

Apologies for being Debbie Downer here, but it's easy to forget the gruesome reality of smoking. This guy would look every bit as fabulous with his beautiful, empty hand. Absolutely.


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

this man looks like he came straight out of the biopic of a WWI general - that stare could stop an army in its tracks, it just conveys pure authority so casually it's beautiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:43 AM) : 

I am not a smoker at all, but when I see this picture, I have to admit that this man has a nice style and his cigarette gives him such a nice look. I look smokers who go for stylish cigarettes, this man has a really cool with his cigarette. His hair is also very nice!!


Blogger Lydia said ... (11:10 AM) : 

hmm yum!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:36 AM) : 

he wouldn´t look the same without the cigarette!! admit it


Blogger tintin said ... (5:24 PM) : 

God damn it I wish I could get my hair to do that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:03 PM) : 

Oh, dear God. Yes he SMOKES, SO WHAT? There are no young children that visit this site regularly who will be corrupted, are there, if that is your issue? All of you critics please take your political platform somewhere else. I'm so sick of this new American conservatism that is trying to censor everything!


Blogger brando said ... (5:47 PM) : 

wow, that's just... cool. wow.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 AM) : 

a pose not a poseur

Love the hair and pose. It looks so 1950s Hollywood.

One of my favorite photos here.

Extraordinaire! C'est Camus par Cartier-Bresson avec une touche de Bogart dans Casablanca... cet air d'intellectuel parisien engagé...

Sa pièce est peut-être jouée ce soir.
