2010 Photo Thread: Because Love, Beauty and Bespoke Tailoring will save the world!!

In honour of Marat's setting sail for horizons new, I hereby launch this thread!

11 June 2009, Naberezhnye Chelny, Tatarstan.



May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


Traditional Gaelic blessing

Could we possibly keep this thread "new horizons" only? Maybe someone could open a "Vintage Marat" thread for old photos like this one?

Well, since you posted a pic from June 2009, I think it's fine to see the other side of Marat's beauty, a.k.a. the twins

И для него воскресли вновь
И божество, и вдохновенье,
И жизнь, и слезы, и любовь.

Great idea Monkey! I hope we get lots of photos to fill this thread. Maybe even a few in the tennis outfit!

I don't see any need to get personal. It's still 2009, plus the photo from June has never been posted before, unlike the Shanghai 2005 photo.

So just asking again, could we possibly keep this "new horizons", which of course can include brand new pics from other years?

Oh ad, I hope so too! The prospect of going cold turkey fills me with dread. I've got loads more pics of Marat last June in Tatarstan that haven't yet been posted.

Introducing the Marat le Serieux thread

Congrats, Monkey, what a great idea...bitch looks fantastic in a suit, who would suspect that outrageous T-shirt collection?!

As it should be, luxsword! I love a bit of fun (hence the thread title) with photos, esp. when it's original and not at the expense of a heartfelt blessing for Marat.

A new pic thread...

...just because Marat stopped playing tennis doesn't mean we stop drooling...

^As much as I make fun of his selection in casualwear (and sometimes wearing them to semi-formal events ), the guy sure knows how to pick out a suit and rock it well!
