If it wasn't for the girl, I would think something was wrong with the lens.

I guess it will be figured out.

Thanks for posting the photo.
I´ve seen it before but don´t know where. Couldn´t find it on my PC.
I´d say, March/April 1960 due to the hair.

I agree about the date, Bripet.

The "skinny" effect is an optical illusion.

There's a dark trim running along the shoulder and the arm (as per the lapel): if you look closely you can see the actual normal silhouette.

I'm guessing Mid-March, 1960. Here it is a little less cropped.

Yes, you are right about that black trim, but his face looks thin too.

Lordy. That's a weird optical illusion alright. His left arm looks positively stick-like.
