Think you're stylish? Then you haven't met Ali. He might be 86 years old but he still cuts a dapper figure on the streets of Berlin.

The Turkish/German octogenarian caught the eye of photographer Zoe Spawton back in 2012 when he kept walking past her workplace every day. Ali moved to Germany from Turkey more than four decades ago. He was once a doctor, but now he's a tailor, although that should come as no surprise when you see his flair for fashion. Spawton decided to start photographing him on a regular basis, and that's what she did for the next three years until 2015. She even created a blog called "What Ali Wore" where you can find a collection of Ali's best outfits over the years.
