Look how jolly! His smile is contagious.


Blogger Christina said ... (8:00 PM) : 

I'm fucking LOVING your posts lately - salt of the earth types with real personal style. Maybe it's just because the same people tend to pop up everywhere, but fashion month is frankly the most boring time for this blog.


Blogger sarah said ... (8:03 PM) : 



Blogger Amy said ... (8:06 PM) : 

Wow, so much personality in this picture. He looks like such a great character.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:17 PM) :

Blogger estela.pereira said ... (10:08 PM) : 

This man put a big smile on my face:) If Santa Claus were real and were on vacation in NY this man would be him, in his "off work" clothes, his stylish and lovely hat and his beautiful blue scarf. Wonder who is the guy behind him with the hand on his shoulder and the woman holding his left arm (it looks like a woman´s thumb)... Loved his smile!!


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (10:08 PM) : 

You know there's nothing more wonderful than a gorgeous man in nice sweater (or two). My kind of guy. I really appreciate that there are buttons in this photograph too. And the pin on his hat. A watch! He has it all - including the best fashion accessory - a fabulous smile.


Anonymous Tom said ... (10:12 PM) : 

His look is absolutely timeless... a 21st century Walt Whitman.

There is so much character to this man. I could stare at this picture for hours thinking of the events he's lived through.

This man is just so full of life - I love his expression.

But that bag he has around his torso... I can only see the strap of course, but I just know that it's absolutely chic. I'd love to have one.

A peaceful heart is always a great base to build a style upon.

Anonymous Key said ... (8:19 AM) : 

Personal style is a wonderful thing - wherever you find it. And the anonymous poster who thinks it's "endearing for an older guy to do a peace sign" should realize that it was this guy's generation who started it.

He's in charge of the vintage line at Ralph Lauren. As you can see...with good reason.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:26 AM) : 

Thank you "Key" for clarifying the origin of the peace sign. Nice to see someone using their hands for something other than a cell phone.

that guy was on sartorialist a long time ago.. he is travelling the world for Ralph Lauren, in order to find pieces to decorate the stores.
great guy.

I've been finding such inspiration in the older men's wardrobes I've been seeing.. great layering choices here.

Wow. He's got it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:53 PM) : 

I love your photos and I love this dude. Seeing his belly made me think about your controversial post featuring the lady with chunky heels to complement her "curvy" (or "normal," or "not a stick..." take your pick) figure. I'd like to point out an inconsistency: when you post pictures of more portly men, like this one, the subjects are simply men, sans commentary. But non-stick-thin women aren't just women, they're "curvy" women. There are totally stylish, curvylicious women out there, and I'd like to see them featured in a post without any disclaimer or framing language. You're in a position to help make the new normal!


Blogger liza said ... (6:51 PM) : 

I love it, this gave me a good happiness-injection. I want to meet him.



Blogger junker said ... (8:00 PM) : 

He looks like he would have a lot of good stories to tell! Great his look!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 PM) : 

To the woman who called him "portly," Doug's actually quite thin but wears over sized clothes to mask that; not that there would be anything wrong with that.

Man--I love this guy! He would be so great to talk to. And his clothes, his smile, his hands and the facial hair is so just right.
But I also like the bucket bag to the fore left of the photo.


Blogger Diana said ... (4:00 AM) : 

Hey, this is the Ralph Lauren-Man, I once mixed up with Robert Rabensteiner in one of my (older) comment. It felt so humilating, but actually it was Robert´s fault ;-), because he is a cameleon.

This guy is almost as great as Robert (stylish). My second fav. on your blog after him.


Blogger Stella said ... (7:10 AM) : 

You made me think of Santa Claus XD
He seems so happy... in a day I'm feeling so grey and seeking red this smiling slightly red face gives me hope. Great job capturing his personality, as always

I liked him better when I didn't know he worked for RL. At least he's not the same fashionista that shows up on everyone's blog. Great look for anyone of any age.
