frayed sleeve.

-the aggregate of features and traits that form the individual nature of some person or thing...
-moral or ethical quality...
-qualities of honesty, courage, or the like; integrity

 it's his frayed sleeve that strikes me in this photo.  the first word that popped into my head was, character.  this photo rests in a book, also a blog, by the name of, The Sartorialst.  maybe you have heard of it....supposedly it is one of the most popular blogs today!
i understand why.  it is a book/blog about fashion but more so about people.  a person's style can say so much about themselves and scott schuman creates an exceptional way of doing just that! 
listen to me! i sound like i am writing a critique on the guy! 
back to this precious photo. i like it.  i like it because it shows character.  not only in the suit but also the character of this man who gracefully wears it.  it states in the short article that this "good lookin" suit was worn by this man's father.  i think it says something of this man to wear his father's old suit.  it also says something of his father.  we may never know their story or what took place when his father wore it and what has and will take place when he wears it but what we do know by looking at it is.....
