    If this jacket is one of the first of that Barbour Collection that is hard-to-get, I will be soooo jealous! I like the red wing boots- they are worth the money! Great outfit overall. Jorge from WPB

    i started to see this uber clean work boot appear on campus earlier this semseter (I attend a private arts college). I’m not sure where the man was from but it is a very handsome look.

    i think as we make our way thru these financially trying times, the very basics like trad. work clothes in pristine state become the glamorous and sexy. though I might like to see the man above with a sexier hat even though his face is VERY easy to look at.

    The straight pants make the whole outfit outrageously somber. I like it. Sensible, the same style as the Asian lady with big specs had some photos down. No nonsense.

    Wow, I really love this. It’s so like so Americana-influenced but unlike Bud-drinkin’, gun-totin’, deer-killin’ “rednecks” (omg so many offensive stereotypes here haha), this is actually really, really lovely. I’m not sure how I feel about the beanie though…

    Thanks Sart!

    Classic Red Wing boots, exclusive to JCrew! Always a great statement, and a nice winter alternative for men.

    Have to force myself to look at the clothes. The total guy is so handsome!

    The jacket is awesomely cool.

    I love all the dark shades. And then the blonde lumberjack boots! The initial impression is very American, but upon closer inspection, it absolutely is not!

    Contrary to previous statements, the boots are not exclusive to jcrew. They can be purchased from red wing and numerous other places. Agree, nice boots though.

    Looks nice with the 875 Red Wing Boots – and of course a cool jacket.
    I like the twist with the boots and the troucers as well.

    Here in Canada, if you wear this, you’re going hunting. If you’re not, it just looks pretentious. His hat is called a toque. It’s standard winter wear. He’s handsome, and puts it together well, but it still looks ridiculous to me in an urban context.

    I’m laughing at some of the comments here. This man is dressed to work. This is not high fashion. If this man is wearing a Barbour coat, I would be very surprised. Similar coats can be found in any construction clothing catalog in the USA (e.g., Walls, Carhartt) and I’m sure there are similar catalogs and shops in Italy.

    The Redwing debate is interesting. They have been ubiquitous for years in London, and I’ve developed lots of blisters over the years wearing mine in, as the preferred look has always been when they have been lovingly battered (see pictures on this site over the last couple of years).
    It’s not often that you see new ones out and about, so good to see the positive reaction to these, as I have just bought a new pair of these exact ones, ready for next winter.
    Is buying the ‘distressed’ ones from J Crew not cheating? Wear your own clothes in kids!

    I was at my friends house the other day and he had these boots. i had to ask the 20 questions about them . with boots the toe just cant be too wide esp. with a skinny pant. oh and yes break them in yourself because finding a cool boot, in your size,that aren’t thrashed is next to impossible.

    This is a look that i think really works wellout of context.

    Yes its very American work wear/ hunter and in North America it would not be the unusal but in the city of Milan i would expect it to be different.

    I find it quite interesting how a look can become very interesting when looked at out of its national or local context.

    I work in the oil and gas industry in Canada and se guys like this allthe time but here it looks interesting – everyday it doesn’t.

    The only thing that i think is nice on this man are the shoes, the rest…sends a very agressive message. I would hold on to my purse unconsiously if i ran into him at night, and i don’t mean that in an offensive way at all it’s just what his clothes tell me.

    This looks pretty perfect if you ask me. The tri-pocket coat and the slim-but-not-tight cut of the slacks with a simple beanie up top–small variations on a classic theme.

    Who makes the coat? I know my american workwear inside out, and this smells of high fashion.

    Hey Surly Canadian. Please don’t speak for all of us. I happen to think it’s not pretentious for a man to wear work clothes in an urban context. People should wear what they feel comfortable in and he does that very well.

    Context Men’s boutique in Madison, WI has singlehandedly brought Red Wings into popularity here paired with selvedge denim. But I remember my friend Damien Jurado wearing his 10 years ago for the sheer practicality and durability long before anyone thought of them as fashionable.
