Would in no way be surprised if that's a wafer thin gold Patek on his wrist. Uber cool eyewear!

Love it. If you hadn't told us Tompkins Sq Park, I would've guessed a cigar factory in the Dominican Republic.

There's nothing sweeter than the style of an old man, with or without sandals and socks.

Wow this guy is great! He reminds me of my grandpa except a lot classier. Who said you can't wear sandals and socks, again? Cuz that person should take a look at this gentleman.

I love the attitude of the man


Anonymous Ada said ... (6:14 PM) : 

What I like about your pics is that they show normal people with great attitudes.
Well done!

Irony about fashion in my blog today:


Anonymous HOT + COOL said ... (6:20 PM) : 

These two photos represent an iconic generation long since passed. KC Rowland's style and Clair with her vintage dress that is the sexiest pic I've seen you post thus far.


Anonymous carole said ... (6:24 PM) : 

Isn't he just the coolest dude.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:30 PM) : 

I like his carey glasses. He is probably happy thru those lens.


Blogger Roser Lou said ... (6:32 PM) : 

How cuteeeeeeee!!! I love the ring on his left hand!!! ;)

I'm going to be on your Barcelona's Masterclasson Tuesdayyyyy!! and I'm so happy!

Besossss from BARCELONA!


Blogger Andrew So said ... (6:40 PM) : 

The jewelry and slight scowl give him a BrickTop kinda feel...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:40 PM) : 

Is he wearing two watches?


Anonymous Bob Hanson said ... (6:56 PM) : 

I like sandals and socks, dammit. Comfortable as hell and a proper FU to lazy style writers who slap this on lists of apparent faux pas year in, year out.


Blogger Rachel said ... (7:08 PM) : 

Got to love socks with sandals


Blogger caribbelle said ... (7:29 PM) : 

the socks and sandals make me chuckle. Overall I like his entire look, especially his glasses and hat


Blogger Cynthia Fox-Giddens said ... (7:37 PM) : 

Cool look from head to toe. I dig the fedora hat!


Blogger Peeke said ... (7:54 PM) : 

This picture made me smile. My dad wore that same hat. It is one of the few things of his I kept after he died. It still smells of his Marlboro Lights.


Blogger ash said ... (7:57 PM) : 

lovely, but i'm in agreement about the socks/sandals combo: if it's too cold to go sockless, wear shoes. or move to seattle as this unfortunate fashion statement is all too prevalent here.


Blogger Ninjagaiden78 said ... (8:28 PM) : 

I like the guy's hat, shirt, and necklace.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:30 PM) : 

Minus the hat and it's my dad's style...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:32 PM) : 

He is amazing! Love the necklace in particular.


Anonymous Jake said ... (8:52 PM) : 

I wnat to get old like him..
Can I??


Blogger Natalie Leung said ... (9:33 PM) : 

This is awesome, reminds me of my boyfriend's great grandpa. Older men pull off the hat look perfectly.


Blogger Gabrielle Lemoine said ... (10:12 PM) : 

He really is an amazing character. Love the socks and sandals.


Anonymous sam said ... (10:30 PM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:33 AM) : 

He looks like he couldn't give a flying rat's nether bits about anyone else's opinion of sandals with socks. He likes them. He wears them. Any questions? He didn't think so.

Love an urban safari! I didn't automatically experience feelings of warmth when I saw this though. Im being honest! Appreciating the fact that he doesn't want to blend into the crowd though : ) x


Blogger Ines said ... (6:03 AM) :

Love the utility and comfort of his outfit. Pockets for his reading glasses and wallet. And Crystal Power to enhance his mojo out there in the concrete jungle.


Blogger Copper Etiquette said ... (9:18 AM) : 

He has great style. Great Dress Give Away At


Blogger Porque Chile said ... (9:19 AM) : 

thanks for making me smile.... especially the socks and sandals.


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

I don't understand it, mr Schuman. Why socks with sandals are true Prada?

I love his hat!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Scott-I don't understand the "original Prada" connection here???


Blogger Christina Simon said ... (10:47 AM) : 

Love the hat, the shades and the sandals. I even do not mind the socks. After all, they are not white but stay within the colour range. And at his age, he is right to keep his feet comfy and warm.
This is a stylish man.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:41 AM) : 

If it weren't for the giant crystal, I'd think my dear, departed Zadie (Grandpa) had come back to life.


Blogger THE PURSE FORUM ADVISORY said ... (2:39 PM) : 

He should move to Barcelona...where there is a love affair with the color beige.


Blogger JudyMac said ... (3:01 PM) : 

What a looker! This guy has really got it together.


Blogger EmmaLouPhotos said ... (3:27 PM) : 

the Sartorialist- you are the master.
Your blog includes all age.this is fantastic.
I admire you.


Blogger Violet Cadburry said ... (8:57 PM) : 

Now we know where Brad Pitt got inspiration for his recent Beige ensemble -- works for Gramps but not for Brad


Blogger M said ... (9:02 AM) : 

Fantastic. I actually chuckled a little bit - I could stare at this photo all day.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:44 AM) : 

This is so cool. Just to show that style has no age.

Sandals + Socks. It reminds me German tourist coming to Italy. Unwatchable.

Make a guayabera, lose the socks, and brighten up the colors and that's me in 20 years!
