We Spell It "Moustache"

We are connoisseurs of moustaches. And we spell it the British way!

And as Rudyard Kipling wrote, "Kissing a man without a moustache is like eating an egg without salt."

Charcoal hair. Charcoal scarf. Charcoal coat. Charcoal gloves. And a glorious charcoal moustache! Never before has a monochromatic scene brought forth such weak knees as we experienced when this gentleman, yes, gentleman, stepped aboard our Red Line train.

Perfectly Pressed Pants...

...and crisp blue eyes! We wish could have captured his eyes!

Let's be honest here. If your employer's name is emblazoned on your brief case and jacket we're going to know where you work! We assumed from the perfectly pressed pants AND jacket that he worked in finance, and right we were!

We especially like this photo because it shows our commitment to doing whatever is necessary to get a picture of a hottie on the T. Our technique to get this unusual perspective? Activate camera on iPhone, then place finger on shutter (but don't let go!), then put phone (with finger still on shutter) in your lap screen-side down, stare out window of moving train, release finger from shutter. Voila!

Don't forget to silence the phone volume and turn off the flash ;-)

We hope we see more of him!

God Bless Pad & Quill

Pad & Quill? What, you might ask, does Pad & Quill have to do with this young man? Why, it lets us get up close and personal without being noticed! You see Pad & Quill makes fabulous iPhone cases. Cases that let you take pictures up close and personal. Without being noticed ;-)

He's well coifed and dressed. We also admire the way he deftly handles his Blackberry device.

This One Reads Books. REAL Books!

In this age of eBooks one doesn't often see a man on the T with a real newspaper, let alone a real newspaper and a real hardcover book!

We like the nice hair and well-groomed beard paired with very casual attire. Did we mention he has a real newspaper?!?! We wanted to tousle his hair a bit to undo the Mitt Romney style coif caused by the heavy rain. We admire a man who looks so well in spite of a downpour. And did we mention he has a real newspaper?!?!

He Took The E Train. We Took The C. Sigh.

Smokin' hot. Apologies for the photo quality, but we were on the platform and he was on a moving train! An E Train, no less. Bound for Jamaica Plain. And we were waiting for a C Train to Brookline. Sigh.

Nice facial hair and a confidently brilliant red scarf. Makes him stand out in a crowd. We think he likes being noticed.

I Can See Russia From My House!

You have to admire a man who not only wears a fur hat in public, but wears it well! We can't help but think this gentleman purchased this hat while on a musical tour of Russia.

And note how the scarf adds color and excitement to his lovely charcoal cashmere coat.

Business Casual - Boston Style

We like the shoes. And the tan coat is a welcome change from the sea of black North Face fleece jackets. We also like the color coordination with the scarf and the jeans.

Note the umbrella and the leather briefcase. A man prepared!
