I think the quirks pointed out are just part of the fun that this IS a modern re-enactor and not an actual fur trapper from the the 19th century. When I get my own computer with Photoshop and have much more time I plan on doing a more rustic and slightly blurred sepia version, and I'll keep some of your ideas for changes in mind when I do.

I agree with Yonaka-Yamako, but this is a beautiful picture. I don't think it needs to be quite so MASSIVE, so maybe if you resized it for the preview and then made the full-size for those who want to look at the massive version, that might help. I think making the size smaller will make the modern building and shoes not so noticeable. :) Otherwise, awesome shot!

Much as I would have given kudos all the way up and down, I saw those moderns under his deer hide gaiters and that spoiled the look. So if I might recommend, crop just right of the pine to get the modern building out of the picture, and photoshop those boots out. Either give him furry boots, put him into ankle deep snow, or smudge and texture the details on those boots to make them look more like winter moccasins or mukluks.

Otherwise, it's a real nice character portrait.

Although I don't miss snow too much anymore, that photo makes me smile seeing it. Also warm. Nice, nice outfit. Great job.
