French Guy?


Oui, oui et oui.  Black, black and black.  The shoes don't do it for me but the hair surely does!  I found Monsieur doing a little work on his computer during lunch outside  Saint Julien-le Pauvre in the Square René-Viviani.

I would agree Monsieur looks very French... or more specifically Parisian. The shoes don't surprise me that much-- or the three-day beard look, "à la Serge Gainsbourg..." -- Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

I completely agree .. in fact I looked and thought "oh no, what awful shoes but that's almost Patrick Dempsey hair!"

He looks so at home - as though he does this daily! Have taken a page out of your Paris Rouge series - hope you don't mind - it kept leaping out at me on a very grey day in Sydney! Have linked it back to you! Thank you for the inspiration. Francesa x

A relaxing déjeuner in the park on one of Paris' millions of distinctive green benches... parfait!

Why work when one is suppose to rest!

The gentlemen is very typical: velvet jacket paired with comfy shoes is very Parisian. The stereotype has been broken. This IS the look seen quite often. Tiny downplay of the style.

He certainly has small feet.

I agree, Virginia...;-)
Have a wonderful weekend.

Ooh la la! Oui, the hair, black attire go hand and hand. The shoes not so much! :)

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend, Virginia!

Riet said...

I thought not French because of the shoes but I read in these comments that it could be Parisien. LOL. Have a nice weekend

Mary said...

Ooooo! He looks very handsome from the back..(and like from the front if i could see hi.) And yes.. his hair is great. His shoes, not so much, but to each his own and all! :)

Alexa said...

Good one, V! I'm willing to ignore his shoes simply because his hair is so great. I married my husband partly because he had hair like this—and divorced him partly because he started cutting it real short! :~}

Jack said...

Nah, he is from Indiana. Bloomington, to be precise.

I'm imagining he's Richard Gere from the front.

I love all the comments above, sometimes it's worth coming in late to a great image to read the comments. I have to say this gentleman certainly look s like he's sat in this spot many times, very relaxed..and I heard a rumour that more and more Parisians are wearing sneakers these days..quel horreur!! haha!
