is that the guy from darjeeling ltd?


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

Oh...Waris,such a huge multifaced talent!
I'd hop on the darjeeling limited with him anyplace anytime...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:37 AM) : 

Wow, he's so good looking.


Blogger RunwayRevolution said ... (10:39 AM) : 

Waris? Still laughing at his role in The Darjeeling Limited. Frankly, I find his clothing well fitting but drab. Is that a fashion or a religious choice?


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (10:41 AM) : 

I really like his pocket square, but the rest I am like, no. Jorge from WPB

Blogger Bedford09S said ... (11:05 AM) : 

this is kind of incredible.

one of the best-dressed men you've posted this year!

though I wish he'd tuck the lining back into his lower left pocket...


Blogger Karen said ... (11:12 AM) : 

So cool.


Anonymous klara said ... (11:16 AM) : 

Extremely classy.
I really like the unprobable contrast with the backdrop.


Blogger Darcy said ... (11:22 AM) : 

I love this guy so much.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:25 AM) : 

Yup, it's the train conductor from the Darjeeling Express. The one who had an American accent and hated snakes.


Anonymous Harbajhan said ... (11:27 AM) : 

What a sick sikh


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

Wow - what a beautiful, elegant (and talented) man! i love that suit on him and the contrast of his black turban and beard with the other colours, its striking but subtle at the same time. It's a great photo, Sart.


Blogger Justine said ... (11:31 AM) : 

Waris Ahluwalia is one of my serious actor crushes


Blogger Rhian said ... (11:32 AM) : 

So handsome. Great picture


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:32 AM) : 

I like how he has draped his scarf like a turtleneck... his pose is great... the jacket kind of long... the yellow cabs in the background provide a nice contrast..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:39 AM) : 

waris is AMAZING. such a stud!

i'm half sikh and its so inspirational to see that he hasn't lost touch with his background.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:45 AM) : 

So this would be a chic sikh?


Anonymous Lemom said ... (11:46 AM) : 

It's hard to say that the turban may one day become the thing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:49 AM) : 

Nice photo


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:52 AM) : 

love love love the little pocket handkerchief...very Cary Grant


Blogger Sammy said ... (11:57 AM) : 

Is that linen or wrinkled wool?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:57 AM) : 

Waris always looks sooo cool, he can even make a speedo look good ( like he did in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou ).


Blogger Jill said ... (11:58 AM) : 

Love his work!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:58 AM) : 

A friend of Wes Anderson's, Waris is also in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and is an accomplished jewler. His collection is titled House of Waris.

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

Curious to know what fashion house he's with, since those are the only people you seem to photograph.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:40 PM) : 

OMG I fell in lOVE! he is amazing. I just love, phone number please, anyone?!


Blogger junglesiren said ... (12:52 PM) : 

What a handsome man. And he could teach the ladies on this blog a thing or two on how to rock a turban.


Blogger amanda mello said ... (1:00 PM) : 

So effing gorgeous. WANT.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:05 PM) : 

Love his Jewelry


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:08 PM) : 

He WAS in the Darjeeling Limited, he also designs really beautiful jewelry!


Blogger Anonymous Messenger said ... (1:19 PM) : 

Ahluwalia! Creative guy. House of Waris has amazing jewelry! But, you'd have to go to India to find even more amazing jewelry and design. He's catering to the tastes of the West. Nothing more.


Blogger Dri_Mar said ... (1:22 PM) : 

Beautiful picture! Look at the perfect line of his nose!!


Blogger Max said ... (1:37 PM) : 

waris is the shit.

Blogger Ruhvana and Flanelli said ... (2:06 PM) : 

That pocket square is the only thing bothering me in this outfit.


Blogger m said ... (2:09 PM) : 

he is so cool!

love the look, he's fashionable, but not a follower of any trend..he is just himself and that makes him very inspirational!

I love the color of this suit and the pocket square.

I love Waris Ahluwalia!


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

I love that people were recognizing him from Darjeeling Ltd, but the first thought I had was Life Aquatic.. oh well.

The hankerchief in the pocket is a nice touch.


Blogger Wanderlusting said ... (4:25 PM) : 

I thought he looked familiar - he's very sharp, very funny and very good looking :)

Waris Ahluwalia style soo cool!!!

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

I love the way his black headwrap and beard frame his face. Wearing lighter colors also draws focus to his face. Very fine sartorial tactics!


Anonymous marryhalal said ... (4:56 PM) : 



Blogger said ... (4:59 PM) : 

Such a beautiful man! I love his turban and the clean simplicity of that suit. It would be great to have a CU of his pocket hankie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:08 PM) : 

haha this guy is funny. Love him in Darjeeling Limited.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:12 PM) : 

This dude is cool, cool, cool. I really like his suit. There is something about it that draws you closer. Like what the heck is it anyway, looks like a fine wale corduroy. Great bluish tint, love the camel scarf and the pull-it-together hanky. I wish I could wear a turban now.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:16 PM) : 

I need him with me here in Sacramento (and what I wouldn't give to have that happen . . . sigh)


Blogger Shrink Boutique said ... (5:37 PM) :

Waris is so fine *blush*


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

I love his pocket square! He is awesome!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:32 PM) : 

This is a bespoke suit, of italian origin? I would assume a tailor from naples. i doubt this is a suit from Norton and sons, because it is not highly structured.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:36 PM) : 

that is one awesome indian. represent!
ive never heard of this guy before?


Blogger The Voguette said ... (7:38 PM) : 

can i say how much i adore his pocket square? reminds me of the dresses from Prada 07. Wonderful!

The Voguette


Blogger frank adam said ... (7:51 PM) : 

I love how that little handkerchief jumps off that drab suit. This is a religious uniform of sorts, but it reminds me of Catholic high school when we would find unique ways of self expression through the drab uniform. Shoes, hair, a belt, suspenders, anything we could find to adorn our uniforms became our mode of identifiable self expression. Fashion is loud even when it whispers.


Blogger  Mommy Drinks Style said ... (8:19 PM) : 

Wow! A very noble face.


Blogger Mai said ... (8:24 PM) : 

Ladies, look and weep.

He's Sikh. He belongs to us! And we're not about to give him up!

I knew that was Vikrum (sp?) from Steve Z's submarine.


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (8:40 PM) : 

What a surprise!

He's gorgeous and trim. What's not to like!...


Blogger Bookworm said ... (8:42 PM) : 

Love it! The detail of the pocket hankie...the tasteful scarf....the whole outfit screams "dignified, elegant, classy". Great pick! I love how it's simple but quite a statement.


Blogger Steve & Kristen said ... (9:19 PM) : 

HEY! Its the great character from all the Wes Andersen films!


Blogger billie said ... (9:49 PM) :

It'sWaris Ahluwalia ,the Indian American jewelry designer and actor.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (10:49 PM) : 

I wonder what kind of....'thing' he's got in his jack-pocket. He looks dapper!


Blogger Welcome said ... (12:28 AM) : 

It wouldn't be a style blog without Waris.

He seems to be appearing everywhere these days.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:42 AM) : 

Now that's PRESENCE!!! It seems fewer men possess that now. Applause!

i saw him at a seu jorge concert, awhile back. awesome

god damn he is so fine.

So very handsome. Sigh.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:53 AM) : 

Sikh chic!


Blogger Beamsteria said ... (8:33 AM) : 

The worn-ness of the suit would otherwise seem daggy, but the decorative pocket handkerchief shows he knows exactly what he's doing... as does his stance.
This pic also shows how dusky and muted colours can be brought out by a bit of black accessorising - whether that's a turban or a handbag or the colour of your hair. I wonder what shoes he's wearing...


Anonymous jjj said ... (9:47 AM) : 

no, this is not a "religious uniform of sorts." i know plenty of sikhs who wear bright colors. all the religious comments above are irrelevant, particularly when the commenter does not know what he/she is talking about. true, none of the comments were disrespectful per se, but please don't make judgments about something you don't know.


Blogger the_eye_collector said ... (9:50 AM) : 

I knew I'd seen this guy somewhere before! Great combination of colours. Obviously the beard is a religious choice, but it does lend a touch of class, too.


Blogger Petulia said ... (9:53 AM) : 

So awesome! The turban makes everything look elegant and effortless


Blogger Devi said ... (1:38 PM) : 

Singh is King!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:25 PM) : 

I'm not really liking his outfit actually, but that is irrelevant because this is WARIS!! he looks good regardless


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:44 PM) : 

re the "rocking the headgear" comment, i don't think he is wearing the dastaar merely as a fashion choice.

he does look great, though!


Anonymous christie said ... (11:29 PM) : 

wtf are any of you talking about? it's waris. he's beautiful, smart, talented, and always dapper.

I love his beard. Sometimes I wish girls could grow beards too, they look so cool!

Also I like his pocket square, it looks like it has flowers

Waris is soooo chic...he's muse material!


Blogger Danielle said ... (12:06 AM) : 

Thought I recognized him. His mother was my next door neighbor when I moved to NYC. Nicest woman in Brooklyn and she gushed endlessly about her son.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:30 AM) : 

I've always wondered whether men with super long beards wear scarves and if so, how do they wear them. Does the beard go inside the scarf or out? From the photo, I guess beards go in.

Yes, awesome. The colours work extremely well. Excellent shot too -- his character almost seems superimposed on the background.
