I dont know sart, this isnt worker chic. He mustnt have the time for welding today.


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

effortless and fabulous. love the glasses and shoes accenting the great coat with rolled sleeve. love his hair and beard, too.

I do like Robert's style. Great coat and shoes (and glasses). He looks a little cold to go sockless. I imagine people will comment on the width of the trousers vs the length but I think they work fine. Narrow ones would look good too- I suppose it depends on whether you want to match or contrast with the silhouette of the coat. I wonder if he's wearing an ascot?


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

He looks good, but somehow I think this coat would look sloppy on most people, particularly with the unbuckled belt.


Blogger TEXTSTYLES said ... (10:47 AM) : 

this man makes it work
the unhinged look suits him
à la mad scientist
especially enjoy the hemline of his pants


Blogger flickster said ... (11:10 AM) : 

The trouser length really hurts my eyes, but what tops that is the fact he looks like he could care less about it!


Blogger Stephanie said ... (11:15 AM) : 

Neat detail on the collar of the coat, and he seems to have a sense of humor about himself or his environment or the situation...or something!

who´s the elegant man? I had seen him others time in this blog

Delightful! Do you suppose he has time for a cup of coffee? It looks like a damp chilly day in Paris... The trench not just "a terrific piece", but a real coat - stuff in the pockets, cuffs turned back, belt undone, and best of all the collar flap buttoned!. The buttery color of the coat comes straight up from the ground under his feet and provides such a wonderful warm contrast to all the gray and black in the background.

I think the same trenck would have looked better if it was a bit shorter and worn with a less grumpy face.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:20 PM) : 

If he doesn't tie that belt, it will be gone eventually.
I learned that the hard way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:17 PM) : 

he has such a great style..

modern+intellectual but not boring ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:11 PM) : 

That is the point dear "anonymous":
Sloppy elegance.
Elegant sloppiness.

Its a very natural shot with his hair messy and the coat unbuckled. I don't really like his pants to wide for the look he has they are to billowy around his whole leg.


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

glasses and haircut -> James Dean copy/paste.


Blogger John-Bryan Hopkins said ... (2:45 PM) : 

I love the generous pant leg and the length.

the scale of the shoes are great too

the trench is just done right!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:05 PM) : 

This is a really beautiful and sophisticated silhouette that balances the traditional and contemporary very well. The colors are amazing too, especially the coat. Very well done!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:28 PM) : 

Does he smell like sweet pipe tobacco? That was the first thing this picture brought up for me -- that and a chill. I love this ensemble - the sleeves, glasses, shoes and buttery color of the coat all work so well together.


Blogger mockumentary said ... (3:38 PM) : 

i love everything his style. he always looks so effortlessly polished.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:56 PM) : 

Does he ever have a bad outfit day? Rolling the sleeves, turning up the collar and leaving the belt untied de-formalises the trench nicely.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 PM) : 

a real character


Blogger Scott W said ... (4:44 PM) : 

I just can't take the shortness of the trousers.


Blogger D. said ... (5:19 PM) : 

I love the length of the trousers! The trench is what makes it work. The shoes and glasses are great, too.

Blogger Matt Lundy said ... (12:59 AM) : 

Always think this dude pulls it off. Can't think of many guys who could go with such wide legs and short length.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:42 AM) : 

brand new coat, brand new pants, un-hemmed. shoes not clear but look new and no socks. Is this a candid photo or a set up photo shoot?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:20 AM) : 


I love the trench coat. But I do not care for the length of the trousers. The glasses really work for him. As I have said before, it is all in the attitude, n'est-ce pas?

Merci, Zoé


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:15 AM) : 

I just love his smile, beard, glasses, pants and coat, in this order. Shoes neutral. I blow a kiss to you, sir! And another to you, Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:45 AM) : 

really prefer this unhinged rakish look to any other, looks almost effortless. and for some reason very nostalgic.


Blogger Barbara said ... (3:01 AM) : 

Actually he's just popped out to buy his croissant for breakfast (hence the sockless feet), and you've snapped him in flagrante delicto! He wasn't intending to be caught by you, but since he feels quite ok in his skin, he's happy to be snapped and amused by the fact that you found him snappable!.....


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

He looks like a very special person, kinda mysterious but open, kinda nice and poetic...But it's hard to put your finger on it... I like him and the way he pulls his coate around him makes him look so safe


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:34 PM) : 

for a moment there (well, actually a not until i read the comments) --- i thought he donning a Muslim men outfit...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:37 PM) : 

I beg to stongly diagree with the majority here. The shoes are great?!! When the dominant overall hue of the outfit is so evidently beigy, tan or yellowish the last color you'd pick for downstairs is black(!)What are all the browinsh golidsh yellowish shoes are made for then? Pants so large whent they're so short! I could find a couple of cute details but the overall impression is one of unsophisticated and sloppy.

Somebody knows the glasses he wear? ¿Rayban?
