... but nothing like him, really.
I have this suit which I was supposed to wear to the wedding, but things got less formal as plans changed so I didn't end up wearing it.
When the challenge was announced, I thought of taking it in the bamboo grove; a couple of days later, we went to another suit shop where we discovered that Jean Reno lends his name to a line of suits, hence the title (and following comments from previous self-portrait challenges).
I even had my hair cut, taking in the suit catalogue with Jean Reno in it, but the woman there isn't a very good hair cutter, when all is said and done.

I'm thinking Pug-H. Pretty cool! You do look like Jean Reno!

You do look kinda like him but the angle of your head doesn't do anything for iyou. If you were looking straight on at the camera it might have been better but that's just a guess.

God luck

I don't know who Jean Reno is (hope I didn't just make myself look really dumb), but I love this image. I like the muted saturation, your stance and expression.
