sometimes that 'self representation', fastening the button etc says more about the person than an informal candid could, this seems a case in point, and the contrast between the formal/informal gives the image an extra touch of tension.

It shows he has some self respect....a commodity in short supply it seems lately!

Yes Mavis, he must be a gentleman.Some would have told you to get lost !! The poor chap sitting here for a quiet bit of reflection.Shoes off,cursing his wife for buying them a size too small.
Rubbing his aching corns and bunions,and you come along and ask for a pic !! I hope you at least gave him a foot massage afterwards,to relieve his pain and suffering ? A face here that could tell a thousand stories.Well, a thousand and one now,after meeting you !!

A picture of a real gentleman - who wanted to be presented in a respectable way. I love this and your explanation makes it very poignant.
