Anonymous J. said ... (10:08 AM) : 

this guy is amazing. do you know what his profession is? actually advertising?

 

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

A reference to the TV show I suspect....Very nice suit/pocket square by the way, and the glasses work well. Hey Sart - ever thought about doing something on glasses/spectacles? As a short-sighter reader I would very much lke to hear your thoughts on this accessory.

 

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

I definitely second the request for a feature on eyeglasses.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 AM) : 

anon 9:35...its a reference to the television show "Mad Men".

 

Anonymous k said ... (10:52 AM) :

Those glasses are fantastic, as is the way he arches his brow. Wonderful!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:05 AM) : 

omg sexy. this is the type of man that creeps into my dreams, furrowed brow and all

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:13 AM) : 

Reminds me to check the DVR for this weeks Mad Men

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:14 AM) : 

love the looks on Mad Men, dark suits and skinny ties and the hallmark 60s accessory the cigarette

 

Blogger Juggernaut! said ... (11:20 AM) : 

Pretty flawless. I aspire to this, even his wrinkles look planned.

 

Anonymous Alisa said ... (11:38 AM) : 

He means business! I like the colour of his tie with the texture/colour of his suit. Sorta reminds me of Clark Kent....

 

Blogger andrewS said ... (11:41 AM) : 

Definitely a reference to AMC's "Mad Men", saw it last night the style is impeccable. I love his cut off tie. Everyone seems to always have a cigarette in their hand in Europe, does everyone smoke over there.

 

Blogger Simon said ... (12:09 PM) : 

its such a great look, i know I'll resist button down collars for some time but I am so rocking the tortoise shell spectacles and side parting these days. Sart what other tailoring details do you think are specific to that period?

 

Anonymous lord sessa said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Oh,no,no,no....The shirt's pocket...and with a pen...this make him look cheap.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:17 PM) : 

He looks wonderful. Certainly much better than the dynamic diaper duo. What is the name of this 'cut' or 'type' of suit. It's incredible in it's understated style. Yea for 50's fashion. I hope to see a Mad Men fashion trend among the stripped shirt and untucked crowd. Hmmm...well hope does float eternal.

I third or fourth to eyeglasses idea. Especially tortoise shell.

Next

Wow, every bit an Asian Don Draper - down to the glasses, skinny tie and compact frame.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:38 PM) : 

My goodness, he is amazing! I love the way every single thing adds to the effect--the glasses, the fountain pen. Even (and I can't believe I'm saying this, because I'm a fanatical non-smoker) his cigarette.

 

Blogger lepetitdoodler said ... (12:45 PM) : 

"mad men" is a feast for the eyes! this gentleman is as well. delish.

 

Blogger amyonymous said ... (12:57 PM) : 

yes, just like "Mad Men" - a cool early 60's inspired look. i remember my dad dressing like this, but he definitely did not look cool!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:03 PM) : 

This guy looks like Tony Leung in several of his movies.

 

Blogger Peter Breese said ... (1:06 PM) : 

great, he has a touch of the CIA in him. like his tie!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:33 PM) : 

wow i love this man! smart and confident.

 

Blogger Cool Cal said ... (1:49 PM) : 

That's right ... American style influencing the Italians.

 

OpenID kezumi said ... (1:52 PM) : 

Oh God I love this - though I am completely in love with the whole fashions, lifestyle and generally part of the hype that surrounds 'Mad Men' atm.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:27 PM) : 

what color is that suit?

 

Blogger Gauzzel said ... (2:30 PM) : 

yes yes yes
a feature on glasses!

 

Blogger Jeffrey Byrnes said ... (2:59 PM) : 

This reminds me of police detective, but at the apperal his outfit reminds me of something from the 50's. He does look like a professional of some sorts. Great shot none the less.

References to one of my favorite men's fashion eras in one of my favorite cities. Brilliant shot.

In reference to 10.39...I wouldn't know about this show since I don't have a telly...Thanx anyway...X

 

Anonymous V said ... (4:19 PM) : 

I love the late '50s and early '60s refinement of the TV show Mad Men. Reminds me of The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit.

 

Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (4:42 PM) : 

Very chic!

 

Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (5:32 PM) : 

with the slim suit and tie, he reminds me of in the mood for love

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:20 PM) : 

He needs a tie bar.

 

Anonymous Nadia said ... (6:54 PM) : 

Orgasmic to the extreme.

Gorgeous without doubt.

This is the man I want to claim mine.

He dresses well. Great hair. Furrowed brows. Potentially-gorgeous-tousled hair that's not a strand out of place. And the best thing....that cigarette.

 

Anonymous Your Friend, Josh! tm said ... (7:06 PM) : 

Absolutely genius in that the suit looks M-t-M, but could have possibly been off the rack. He has a frame for making suits look good. It kind of throws me back to old Godzilla movies in that so many of the men in those films were dressed so well. There could be fashion references for seasons on end from Godzilla vs. Mothra alone.

 

Anonymous Antoine said ... (7:15 PM) : 

Some kind of LA Confidential spirit here... I think that the design of the eyeglasses greatly supports his style.

Blogger Miguel said ... (7:23 PM) : 

The convination is perfect... tie, suit, glasses.... Tell me what's left?

 

Blogger vbd said ... (7:55 PM) : 

something of an hong kong or taywan urban movie version of the corn field run under the airplane on north by northwest...
sart, you got a cinephile kind of way of looking at people, don't you?

 

Blogger K.B. said ... (8:46 PM) : 

Suddenly I'm hearing the theme for the original "Dragnet." That's the look, isn't it?

Skinny ties and narrow lapels pin down the decade this came from, but I like it a lot more than huge wide ties and wide lapels. Wouldn't be a bad thing for neatly-suited and neatly-coiffed men to come into fashion again.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:05 PM) : 

evidently it's a great show.. perhaps find online? i love love this shot..squinched eyes, mid -walk , cigarette (altho i dont condone smoking..jsut the
"look"). it's perfect.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:51 PM) : 

Love this. So well put together. I wish i could see the shoes but i can only imagine.

 

Anonymous Style Habits said ... (5:16 AM) : 

Old School + Modern.

It's quite chic.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:18 PM) : 

This guy is super cool. He's mastered the thing that every guy wishes for -- being dressed up, but looking casual and up for anything. The 50s/60s skinny suit/tie thing is apt for this, since it doesn't leave a lot of extra fabric flouncing around for no reason.

 

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

Terrific - straight out of In the Mood for Love!

 

Blogger me said ... (10:27 PM) : 

To anon 1:03:
That was my initial thought as well. Probably because of his movies "In the Mood for Love" and "2046" which were both set in the 60's.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:29 AM) : 

He is definitely Japanese!

 

Blogger wp said ... (11:52 AM) : 

The suit, tie and pen in the pocket yes, but it's all about the glasses. Perfection!

 

Blogger Marianna said ... (4:44 AM) : 

Love this and how you matched it up to Mad Men (I LOVE MM, it's so classy and beautiful to watch, and the script is so amazingly well written). This guy could easily be a character out of MM, plus the cigarette...e-one smokes like mad in the series!!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:17 PM) : 

wow. what a fantastic look

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:12 PM) : 

Perfection down to every last detail.

 

Blogger Wei said ... (1:51 AM) : 

for me, a typical japanese business man with good fashion consciousness...

 

Blogger Vronique said ... (4:17 AM) : 

OMG he looks like my ex (sorry) - but its awesome, love the glasses!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:02 PM) : 

sexy guy - caught my attention.

Great look! The eyeglass frames work really well with the overall look and his face.
