Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:07 PM) : 

I am so intrigued. The face, the small hand, the broad shoulders, the obvious sense of pride and style. I want to sit in a cafe with him and hear everything he has to say...

So classic. Camel coats are hot. Always admire this business casual feel with the button down shirt with the cashmere scarf and the double breasted jacket.

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

This is the face of man in ring still shiny after what probably is many years of happiness. And what woman, at any age, wouldn't love to see her man dressed like this? He is lovely, loved and in wonderful to see happiness and style combined into one person. Isn't that a hope for us all...?

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:04 PM) : 

He's just lovely.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:05 PM) : 

Love his style, adore his scarf!!
His body proportions are unusual with his shrivelled, bony hand and broad, manly shoulders.


Blogger Fashion Agony said ... (5:13 PM) : 

What a great style!


Blogger Efren Jarquin said ... (5:16 PM) : 

Great look. Would love to sit next to him for him to tell me some of his experiences in life. We can learn a lot from an older person's style, but so much more from their experiences.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:19 PM) : 

This is a beautiful portrait.

he's got style! i love his hat, i wish men - young and old - still rocked these.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:26 PM) : 

Love the saturated hue of the scarf and hat-band. Even the bit of necktie peeking out is bold yet subdued. Everything he's wearing feels well-cared for.

Charming picture. The most interesting part might be the hem of the sleeve: wonderfully retro, yet so modern.

Such a kind face, beautifully captured.

THIS is a much better example of italian style then these three greasy dudes posted here the recent days.

Not sure about the green of the scarf......perhaps something burgundy (?)

I love the blue shirt poking dapper, love it.


Anonymous John Wesley said ... (11:40 PM) : 

GENUINE NONCHANLANCE. Not the calculated variety.
I'll bet this wonderful man has had his camel coat for YEARS! That is the value of buying really good clothes ... And taking care of them.
In my opinion, his hat is a Trilby. (Tiny distinctions separate it from a Fedora.)
--John Wesley


Blogger Yoli said ... (12:26 AM) : 

That gentleman has presence, true class. His demeanor, his smile, the hat; perfect.


Blogger Marie said ... (1:31 AM) : 

this guy likes quality... maybe he's owned that coat for a long time. It has some wear on the breat pocket... but nice quality. He is stylish! There's a beauty in hands of older people. I care for a lady in the last stage of her life... I can relate. Also I was just reminded of a beautiful picture of a detailed shot of my grandparents holding hands. Its a picture of their hands. Hands are so much a part of who a person is.

Blogger Jess said ... (7:25 PM) : 

Something I've been appreciating lately is freckles. And how fashionable they are. I was over on the Style Rookie, and she had some pictures of faces so freckly even lips were covered.

But.. The thing that attracts me even more than the freckles, is the simple wedding band on his old hands.

Love this picture. So beautiful.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 AM) : 

This picture brings tears to my eyes. It reminds me so much of my father. Not so much the face, but how this stylish, classic gentleman is dressed. My father was from a generation of gentlemen; where even on a flight he would wear a suit and a tie - that generation is fast dwindling, I'm afraid. Let's hope we remember, learn and continue the art of dressing. Thank you for this photo.
