Appropos of nothing, here is my new look (updated)

Comments are welcome.

UPDATE: For the literally thousands of commenters who have contacted me about this important posting, here are the key fashion facts about the above photo:

  • It was taken on Mother’s Beach in Kennebunk, Maine, just before Hurricane Irene hit
  • The patch is His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie, purchased in Jamaica
  • The hat is from the only and only golf club I ever belonged to, Larrimac in Chelsea, P.Q.
  • The T-shirt is a Pennywise tour shirt
  • The jean jacket was purchased many decades ago, and is hated by every woman I have ever known, and which I will therefore be buried in
  • The edgy new glasses are actually 3D glasses – lenses popped out by my son – purchased at a showing of Captain America, which totally sucked
  • The scar on my lip is from a long-ago bar fight in Calgary, which I lost
  • You’re welcome

    Once the orange-glow fond de teint has faded, people might be inclined to mistake you for an old-age-home escapee.

  2. Finn says:

    Harry Caray, is that you?

  3. john says:

    Kinda reminds me of the guy from the commercials trying to get you to go to Darien Lake ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Winston Higgs says:

    As Jah is my witness, I did not know Truman Capote was a Rastafarian! Are those potties next to your mouth?

  5. Justin says:

    You look like the old guy from the movie “Up”

  6. bigcitylib says:

    That look is a lot of things. I’m not sure “new” is one of them.

    Are those glasses “progressives”, by the way?

  7. I think you look worried. Over your right shoulder stands either the town’s toilets or the advanced polling booths for the provincial election. I don’t know which shithole you’re near. I mean those green thingies.

  8. Damien Walsh says:

    Henry Fonda from On Golden Pond ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Adam Jensen says:

    People less intelligent than us might mistake that patch for some sort of Danish cartoon. Otherwise, not bad looking for an old chap. Go SLAPP Ezra around some more, it will shave a few years off.

  10. Attack! says:

    Hell Boy becomes HellMan (‘s Layonnaise)

  11. Jamie says:

    I think it looks cool. Then again, I think you’re pretty cool in general, so there.
    What’s on your ipod?

  12. Marc-Andre Chiasson says:

    You’re probably way too young to remember the Bowery Boys but, somehow in this pic, you remind me of Leo Gorcey. Note in the Wikipedia description below that Leo was always the most pugnacious one of the gang…hmmmm!

  14. Raymond says:

    Uh…It’s the glasses.

    The hat’s, well, kinda’ ok, but it’s the glasses…..

  15. We need to see that intriguing badge on your shirt more clearly. A bearded cult leader sporting a crown? Also the badge on your sun hat. Are the two badges related? Are you posing as a security guard for the cult?

  16. frmr disgruntled Con now happy Lib says:

    Geek chic…..


  17. Pete says:

    I think you deep down want to be a Tory premier.

  18. Sean says:

    Mayor of Bat Country

  19. Michael S says:

    Now you’re channelling Ronnie Corbett.

  20. Ezra X says:

    The glasses look like Ezra Levantโ€™s….

    Only bigger.

    Is this meant to be symbolic?

  21. Heaney says:

    You mugged Charles Nelson Reilly. You stole his glasses and his personality.

  22. Craig says:

    Looks like one of us to me. Keep up the slow sedentary work when you can.

  23. Gretschfan says:

    “The loooons, Norman, the looooooons!”

  24. nic coivert says:

    Colonel Kinsella, on the beach.

  25. JenS says:

    We have about a gazillion pairs of those glasses around here, should you ever need replacement parts.

  26. smelter rat says:

    What Buddy Holley would look like if he’d lived ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. Mike in TO says:

    The Larrimac Glof Club! That’s the only golf club I’ve ever belonged to as well. Our parents would kick us out of the cottage every Tuesday for Junior Day, so they could have some peace and quiet.

  28. Lala says:

    My female friends are sending me notes of condolence and they can’t even see the whole jean jacket.

  29. West in the East says:

    I hate to tell you this WK, but you are looking more like Joe Scanlon every day.

  30. Philip says:

    Personally I think a huge Rick Rubin/ZZ-Top beard would tie the whole look together. Just putting it out there.

  31. TheSilentObserver says:

    Lookin’ sharp Warren. Nice to know you’re keeping the beaches sexy.
