The upper bits: impeccable. I was 'super pumped' when the page loaded. But, when i scrolled down to see the full image, i was shocked by the trouser color. I don't get it.

The scarf works, because it mirrors his facial skin tone. But, that color pant with those jackets? Clash?

I really love it, from the waist-up.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:17 AM) : 

love it! and that background is choice too! well done.


Blogger said ... (11:18 AM) : 

Beautiful!!! I'm loving those textures!


Blogger Sartorial Vancouver said ... (11:22 AM) : 

The ruffled look works because of his hair. Not something I would go for, but then again I do not think I come across so cool.

mmm...I like color gamut of his coat+jacket and beige trousers+scarf!His glasses so stylish.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:36 AM) : 

What a fantastic looking mature man! As debated earlier this month, grey en brown looks fantastic. The only thing disturbing the picture a little is the simularity of the fabrics on jacket and coat... anyways fantastic look


Blogger Meeting Trader said ... (11:39 AM) : 

Besides the intense gaze from the subject, I love the layering in this photo. I live in Chicago and layering heavy materials or jackets are a great way to stay warm without submitting to the all-in-one down blanket look. The sand-colored scarf is also a great accent to pull the outfit together with the pants.

This guy MUST be an architect!


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:50 AM) : 

This is such a nice look! Love his blazer and the scarf, they look great. Love it!!!


Blogger Rene Schaller said ... (11:55 AM) : 

the colours and the structures of the material are great. he has real good style!


Blogger diane said ... (11:58 AM) : 

The two jackets look to be different shades of the same fabric, beautiful. A little sloppy, the way the scarf sticks out of the bottom. I love these gorgeous older gentlemen shots you've been doing. I always had a thing for older guys, my husband reminds me of that every time I compliment him on his graying hair (haha). xo


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:59 AM) : 

all great colours!


Blogger andrew goldspink said ... (12:03 PM) : 

this holds together excellently, great look!

nevermind his age; nevermind MY age... SWOON.

so sharp, so smart.


Blogger Bedlam said ... (12:21 PM) : 

I love this look, the rouge


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:27 PM) : 

I love the knit scarf! and the superposition of layers


Blogger Sentir said ... (12:28 PM) : 

Good texture on the jacket and vest. The pants are awful though; kind of makes the shot a juxtaposition.


Blogger Un Monito said ... (12:30 PM) : 

So natural - Cascading fabrics - wicked gloves - woolens with cotton - I LOVE his coat - check out the lines / curves of the collar and the length is perfect - not preceded by his stunning blazer. He allows the 4-button blazer and dripping scarf to take centre stage. I just really hope he's wearing a vintaged lace-up chocolate boot with this. Fantastico!


Blogger American Otaku (E is my SL) said ... (12:40 PM) : 

that is amazing! i love the Italian gentleman's jacket and coat!!! of course i love any DB's any way...
it's not "tricolor" it's "TRICOLORE!"


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:46 PM) : 

gerhard richter wrapped


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:50 PM) : 

Here's a man that seems very utilitarian and can't be bothered with what fashion dictates. Sometimes he can't be bothered with grooming either. Still, I think he knows that he likes good classic pieces and he'll just stick to that. He's messy here, but I've already forgiven him.


Blogger Christine--RHP said ... (12:51 PM) : 

nice combo--


Blogger junglesiren said ... (12:53 PM) : 

This man is PERFECT! Knows what he's doing and does it casually, without fuss, without preciousness.


Blogger Rita said ... (12:55 PM) : 

He looks so great! Everything works perfectly together.


Blogger Vilch said ... (1:00 PM) : 

Amazing texture.


Blogger Vilch said ... (1:03 PM) : 

Amazing texture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:21 PM) : 

This I like.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:21 PM) : 

It looks so good having the darker grey jacket on the outside and the lighter grey on the inside. One buttoned and the other open, looks so good! The scarf looks great to the trousers. Like the details that is showing on the picture, the watch and glasses.

Love the outfit and picture.


Blogger JP said ... (1:31 PM) : 

really nice -

the scarf looks like it is linen?


Blogger Kay said ... (1:34 PM) : 

That's a pretty unique layering technique, it look so good on him though.
The colours and textures are beautiful together.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:44 PM) : 

It's not sloppy. It's sprezzatura. Just the right amount of looseness. Were he impeccable, something would be lost.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:55 PM) : 

timeless look, wonderful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:05 PM) : 

this works because he's an italian man in italy. take him out of context and i don't think it would work.


Blogger Pucci said ... (2:17 PM) : 

Love this look, especially the texture of the jacketand the vest and, above all,i love his glasses. Superbe tenue !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:38 PM) : 

Let's not overanalyze his outfit. HE certainly didn't! I think he was just trying to stay warm...


Blogger YHBHS said ... (2:46 PM) : 

a classic well composed look. shades of grey and tan. great glasses too. incredibly sexy.


Blogger anonwomen said ... (2:51 PM) : 

another riff of the grey and brown story - I really love the palette and the background is such a perfect reflection of the story.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:59 PM) : 

such great colors and textures. i hope i look like this in my later years. he appears to have taken on the world and survived through polish and trend to come out real and stylish. and i agree that those orange and beige bricks really accentuate his character and the tactile sense of this clothing.


Blogger drollgirl said ... (3:11 PM) : 

he is looking great! just great. he has to be an artist, an architect, or a designer -- something cool.


Blogger J.A.F. said ... (4:43 PM) : 

Rumpled and Fabulous, Must start looking at real estate in Florence (or just marry an Italian).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:47 PM) : 

I like seeing how people deal with the weather. Two coats. Why not?
This man looks like a real intellectual, which is, happily, a popular look in Europe. I bet that I would not be bored passing an afternoon in a cafe with him. I bet he has things to say.
On my screen, the pants look like a darker shade of the scarf. Sort of a beige segue to blues segue back to beige continuum.


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (5:09 PM) : 

All I want to do is iron his pants... he forgot to iron his pants. To me he looks uncomfortable, but I'm sure 'he' feels comfortable and most of all warm, which was probably his only intention. Its good that the coat, jacket and scarf have the same texture... its what gives him a good look I think :)


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (5:36 PM) : 

Gorgeous outfit/picture/pose/gentleman!


Blogger joanna said ... (6:16 PM) : 

i really love this look, what a captivating older gentleman. great glasses, too


Blogger 22 Papillon said ... (6:29 PM) : 

I don't like the color of the pants on him but I still really like this outfit


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:41 PM) : 

Great shot Sart. The outfit is really well put together, without trying too hard. And he's not even smoking.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:51 PM) : 

I LOVE that his colors are complimentary and not matching. Matching is for the unimaginative.


Blogger Rosa said ... (7:06 PM) : 

I belive without a doubt you are the best capturer of mens street style on the whooooooole internet. P.S i wonder if i could convince this man to be my grandad?...xx


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:17 PM) : 

I love these colors and especially the layered coats, but I really want to know what shoes he is wearing.


Blogger The Stylish Wanderer said ... (7:50 PM) : 

love him


Blogger lulu said ... (7:51 PM) : 

Molto Bene. Your Florence series has me longing to live in that city once again.
Love your work.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:04 PM) : 

Wow, this is fantastic in so many ways! I love the hair, the beard (which is hard to pull off), the glasses (beautiful shape, and classy rather than ironically nerdy), the scarf and two jackets layered on top of one another. It is classic and yet so original!


Blogger secondvurss said ... (8:18 PM) : 

like the layers!


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (8:30 PM) : 

I really like it that he's got his scarf tucked in the 'singlet'.


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (8:54 PM) : 

A symphony of textures and colors. The choice of the gorgeous ancient brick wall is genius. Goes perfectly with the teal and camel. The hair is a texture statement of its own.

He looks confident and warm. Great old dude.

Ciao Zio!


Blogger John Danner said ... (10:22 PM) : 

I love how the backgrounds of the photos are taken into consideration almost as much (if not as much) as the subject at hand.

Icing on the cake.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:30 PM) : 

No one has asked to see this gentleman's shoes. Perhaps because we trust him implicitly to wear the perfect - no, the "don't give a sh*t perfect" pair. I know I do. Ciao, Bello!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:34 PM) : 

A great collection of textures. Something so relaxing, this photo of a terse man. It's the fabric and the stone, and the stubble and the frown. And the tense hand holding down.


Blogger Kristine said ... (12:38 AM) : 

ooh yes! I love everything about this look. The colours together are fabulous, even down to the greying beard.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:49 AM) : 

I love gracefully growing men who take pride in their appearance.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:06 AM) : 

very good. some nonchalance, not trying too hard.


Blogger Mira Maulia said ... (4:10 AM) : 

Isn't there that cold?
lovely look anyway :)


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

Probably some italian philospher. Italy remains the only place where elegance is a second nature even among intellectuals.


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

the matching gloves are my favorites!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:56 AM) : 

great picture! love the background, his fixed stare and the 2 jackets


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:42 AM) : 

lovely grays and tans, very rich color palette here.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:43 AM) : 

Wonderful shot. The colours and the depth of field are just right. I like the unkempt-ness to this although it is surely deliberate.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:20 AM) : 

Looks like Godard.


Blogger Style Salvage Steve said ... (12:36 PM) : 

Great shot Sir! The textures and composition of this are just right. Superb.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:25 PM) : 

A German man in Italy!


Blogger Fashademic said ... (9:58 PM) : 

i love how this gentleman's look balances carefully between constructed and derelict. His clothes are so well-cut and the tones work together beautifully, but there's an element of the dishevelled which compliments his stubble and weathered expression- it's captivating.


Blogger Zohar said ... (3:33 AM) : 

Oh lovely! The olor combination is stunning. I wonder how comfortable it is though, to wear a jacket over a jacket like that.... it looks great though :)


Blogger maximilian said ... (7:18 AM) : 

what a truly amazing mix! the scarf and the blazer!! awesome color combo! tres tres chic!
ps: I <3 Scott Schuman! (love his ads for gap!)


Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (9:19 AM) : 

this is such a fantastic portrait.


Blogger Deafkid said ... (9:48 PM) : 

wonderful...perfect harmony of colours and textures.


Blogger Keli said ... (11:35 PM) : 

i am so impressed with both the photo and his entire look. bravo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:23 AM) : 

Beautifully done.


Blogger Magpie said ... (12:40 AM) : 

Magnificent! I think this is my new favorite color palette for the awkward season we have in Cambridge right now, pre-Spring.

I've been seeing criticism of the scarf ends and/or trouser. IMHO, this outfit works precisely because this heathered-wheat scarf extends past solid slate-tweed block of jacket and vest to the trouser, echoing their dark khaki tone.


Blogger hotchocolatelove said ... (2:58 AM) : 

:D he looks like such a character! mmm amazing scarf. looks cozy.


Blogger lefthand gilliam henderson said ... (3:02 PM) : 

the texture of the double-breasted coat under is refined and rough, with a subtle edge.the proportions of both work well without looking clumpy.


Blogger Olivia Poli said ... (4:54 PM) : 



Blogger Mz. Paulzen said ... (1:25 PM) : 

Beige/tan and grays are a chic combo-- very elitest.
The black rimmed glasses are neccessary. He's got the whole "brilliant but tortured writer" thing going on. Sexy and mysterious.


Blogger Udo Umami said ... (9:20 AM) : 

what a cüddly irascible curmudgeon!!! <3 Üdo


Blogger Kits said ... (12:37 PM) : 

His expression is brilliant


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:29 PM) : 

Love this man. His outfit is dreamy, but it is his expression, his eyes, that are just so haunting, sexy and dramatic. Like from an old European movie. Nice job Scott!
