Most people tend to lose interest in fashion as they age, but an elderly gentleman from Germany is stunning the world with his sartorial elegance. Through his impeccable sense of style, Gunther Krabbenhoft is proving that fashion and charm are not limited to the young.
Gunther was recently photographed in Berlin, near the Kottbusser Tor station, and his pictures have created quite a stir online. His choice of clothes is simple, yet artistic, with clean lines and clever use of color. He regularly dons turned up jeans, corduroy jackets, classic bowties, waistcoats, brogues, hats, and braces – effortlessly nailing the look that modern day hipsters try so hard to emulate.
“I find that I dress pretty normal,” he told interviewers. “I’ve always dressed like this. When I went to work, when I go to exercise, I want to look at myself with joy. It’s always a reflection of my inner self.”
A few online reports suggest that Gunther is 104 years old, but he laughed it off as a rumor. He hasn’t revealed his real age, but he is assumed to be in his 70’s. But age is just a number, and as Gunter rightly proves, it has nothing to do with presenting yourself at your best!
As you can imagine, an impeccable style like Gunther’s doesn’t go unnoticed, so it comes as no surprise that he actually does some work as a model under contract with Berlin-based We Are Unlike You, a model agency “for unique characters”.
