Definitely agree that the shades are key, but I think that the coat is a great touch as well. The whole look just hangs together nicely.
What's interesting (at least to me) is imagining the same guy in a different haircut/style. The outfit really gives him a lot - his face is not that unusual/striking. With a Trad haircut and outfit he could be an investment banker.
Just goes to show - clothing is costume.
