I'm loving the round sunglasses! It's nice to see a change from the wayfarer styles that have been around for the last few seasons.
July 29, 2010 at 9:54 am
I just posted about tucking in clothing. He looks great here!
July 29, 2010 at 9:55 am
Those beautiful glasses again :)Nice marinière. He a model?
July 29, 2010 at 10:01 am
So cool !!!!!
July 29, 2010 at 10:04 am
I know I personally CANNOT pull off this look, but oh my, this man surely can. So breathtaking!
July 29, 2010 at 10:21 am
Oh wow. He is so suave! Like he stepped out of a ralph lauren catalogue! Love it.

What F. Scott Fitzgerald did he step out of??
July 29, 2010 at 10:27 am
I'd like to steal this ensemble, right down to the sunglasses, and I'm a woman. He looks fantastic!
July 29, 2010 at 10:29 am
I'm a little split on this look. I think it's a beautiful photograph, but I think I'd prefer the belt a bit more subdued. I do love men in tucked in looks!

He looks great! As if he was stuck in time from the beginning of the century and just woke up trendy as hell! Love it ; )
July 29, 2010 at 10:44 am
Oh I love this look on a man!Striped, boatnecked, longsleeved t-shirt and high-waisted slacks (long or short). Casual but so goodlooking. The shades are just perfect to it!
July 29, 2010 at 10:46 am
I like his style, especially the color combination of the stripy longsleeve and the shorts.He can wear this pair of shorts with a high waisted line, but I am sure it does not fit everybody.

and what about the glasses??
the clothes look natural on him even if he is wearing in women trends

July 29, 2010 at 11:01 am
I admire his courage to wear this outfit. Very neatly put together– I can't help thinking though that those clothes would look much better on a woman!
July 29, 2010 at 11:05 am
God,I had those shorts 30 years ago~
July 29, 2010 at 11:08 am
Qu'il est beau!
July 29, 2010 at 11:09 am
where can i get those short…seriously.a high waist short for men… who'dathought
plus i've always been a fan of a long sleeve shirt with an above the knee pant…
July 29, 2010 at 11:11 am
I remember buying a sailor shirt like that in Kensington Market in 1987, wore it a lot, even backpacking in India, honestly can't remember why I threw it away.
Wish i had kept it now that the 80s is back…
They are a classic and if one can pull them off can look very masculine – not sure if I ever did though – this guy almost does; not quite sure if he absolutly gets it right; the shorts are a little too fussy which makes him look a little "Querelle" – although that might be the look he is looking to achieve…

i remember when double-belted shorts similar to these were widely available in vintage/surplus stores in nyc, such as unique clothing and reminiscence. they wore like iron and were affordable. options like that don't exist today.
July 29, 2010 at 11:21 am
It is not working for him even though he is a handsome man.
July 29, 2010 at 11:26 am
I like this shorts, nice and elegants
July 29, 2010 at 11:27 am
That's Kimball Hastings. He works for Ralph Lauren.

oh god, he takes my breath away………this is perfection.

carrieitly,so funny you should invoke fitzgerald here,as soon as i saw this young man,i instantly thought of gerald c. murphy,who had been the main influence for dick diver,of "tender is the night."
what great everything!what a really great jersey,(i wonder where he got it),and what a wonderful image to evoke,of a wonderful man and (that murphy) lifestyle.
living well really is the best revenge.
July 29, 2010 at 11:36 am
did he wear his g/f's shorts? so funny
As a woman, I am jealous of that waistline!!! What a completely androgynous and cool outfit…
July 29, 2010 at 11:43 am
Stunner. Repeat: stunner :)
July 29, 2010 at 11:52 am
Fazal is correct, I had those shorts in the 80's myself, purchasing them on Melrose in L.A. in it's early days as a shopping mecca. They were, i believe, British Army Surplus. The look wonderful here as does this entire ensemble. I also agree there is a sense of Scott Fitgerald about the look. I hope you show us more of him in future. Thank you.
Please tell me he was wearing espadrilles with long laces.
So sleek. I love that this look as androgynous- it would look equally stunning on a woman. Great photo!
I had a pair of these shorts a long time ago too and I loved them. They look good with the striped tee, and I always love a boatneck. I think it works well. Where do you get the sunglasses?
July 29, 2010 at 11:57 am
HE look great, love the colour combination, and the round glasses !!!I really really like your streetstyle blog !!keep it up !!
I have recently started my own blog, drop by and feel free to leave some message.
July 29, 2010 at 12:08 pm
Love the top side ogf those shorts… perfectly cut and fitted.
This guy nailed it using that sweater and continuing the lines sequence with the short belt.
July 29, 2010 at 12:12 pm
Love the look!
July 29, 2010 at 12:14 pm
British army Khaki shorts. Worn also by Indian army, police. Uniform for Bermuda police. I got a pair in Bermuda when I was 14 and wore them forever. One of my sons found them and I haven't seen them since! Maybe once offered in J.Peterman! Nice look. I see their is a big return of round, classic specs, nice.
July 29, 2010 at 12:27 pm
Interesting waist band. Love the optics.
July 29, 2010 at 12:31 pm
I like the buckles on the shorts, it's just a nice design touch that gives the look added flair.

I love sunglasses like this guy has! I've got round sunglasses with mirrow glass and transparent frame. And I from them in delight!
July 29, 2010 at 12:53 pm
I love everything about this guy! Really wish there was a picture of him wearing those glasses!
July 29, 2010 at 1:01 pm
What an awe-inspiring look, what a handsome man. Wow! I'm deeply impressed. Too bad I didn't meet him when I was in Paris.
July 29, 2010 at 1:09 pm
there is a tomboy/feminine look here. and a tad retro. it's the way I (a female) used to dress in the late 80s .
could not get away with that look in America today. nope.
July 29, 2010 at 1:12 pm
Beautiful outfit! I love the color of the shorts with the striped top.

Blast from the past. So refreshing and simple, but elegant and elevated. What Summer SHOULD look like.
July 29, 2010 at 1:29 pm
He wears his hear very classic, very chic!But men shouldn´t show their legs after the age of ten! There are few rules that are more worth not to be broken.
July 29, 2010 at 1:31 pm
love it ! i love that the colours of the stripes match the shorts . the cinched waist is great , and the sunglasses are perfect . he looks incredibly handsome .
The clothes are lovely and yes flattering but on this fellow, it all feels contrived. Do not know why, just a feeling. And yes, I to recognized that he Kimball Hastings formerly of Teen Vogue now with Ralph Lauren. Gee! For a woman who is from and still lives in Ottawa, Canada, I sure do know my fashion gossip!! Thx, Artemisia
July 29, 2010 at 1:45 pm
so very 80's! I am having a Pines flashback!
July 29, 2010 at 2:09 pm
Very funny to contrast this photo with the one of the man with the saggy pants below.
July 29, 2010 at 2:35 pm
Love this shot! He's an informal model.

Everything about this is awesome…not everyone can wear,but the individuals who decide too will look amazing in this look.
July 29, 2010 at 3:11 pm
I WANT THOSE SUNGLASSES!
July 29, 2010 at 3:27 pm
Kimball Hastings, no?
July 29, 2010 at 3:34 pm
i could never imagine this ensemble, but seeing it, it works amazingly!

great style, but im not reallt sure weather i like it or not when men tucks in thier shirts. either way, i like it anyway. And those glasses! soo cool
July 29, 2010 at 4:18 pm
I like the look but I have some mix feeling for it. The look as a whole looks good all together.. but something about it… hmmm nice glasses though!
July 29, 2010 at 4:20 pm
What a stud!I really admire this outfit. Every guy should dress like this – I'd be impressed.
July 29, 2010 at 4:35 pm
nice! cary grant on a comeback. i'm a big fan of the beige/umber stripes.
July 29, 2010 at 4:36 pm

July 29, 2010 at 4:37 pm
Like the clothes and sunglasses, but the coif is a little too Ken doll or Hymie the Robot (from the old Get Smart series.)
July 29, 2010 at 4:52 pm
This guy needs to give a bit of advice to the yahoo who's losing his pants (two posts down…)
July 29, 2010 at 4:56 pm
Short+sunglasses are lovely! Armani did a amaizing thing with the round models last season.
July 29, 2010 at 5:00 pm
gurka shorts – yes!round shades – yes!boat neck shirt – yes!
Totally classic, totally works on him. Great look. Great photo. Should I say it again? Ok, GREAT BLOG!!!
July 29, 2010 at 5:14 pm
Who would have thought… Waisted can look great on men, too.
July 29, 2010 at 5:21 pm
whoa love the colors. hair, pants, stripes, skin, everything
July 29, 2010 at 5:25 pm
Am I the only one put off by how femme he looks? Just not appealing.
July 29, 2010 at 5:27 pm
Sunglasses are the BEST.
July 29, 2010 at 5:30 pm
Everything about this image is so beautiful. I love the unexpected colour of the stripes on his shirt and his sunglasses. He has great poise.
July 29, 2010 at 5:36 pm
I LOve those, yes i doand glasses too
July 29, 2010 at 5:41 pm
Double self-belt shorts:This exact style can be seen in an old fashion illustration from Esquire, ca 1937.–JW
July 29, 2010 at 5:48 pm
I like the shorts. But I'm entirely fed up with stripes this summer! There's been such a 'breton' fever since April that they don't look good anymore… They've been completely overdone – by shops, buyers and blogs!
July 29, 2010 at 7:01 pm
I did get them in LA- Army & Navy~i wore them to death!
July 29, 2010 at 7:27 pm
What a beautiful man. So stylish.
July 29, 2010 at 8:17 pm
Great look! Love the shorts.Stripes are timeless and stylish.
July 29, 2010 at 8:20 pm
I really like the shorts.I like the stripes still, because we are in the middle of winter and my stripe days are ahead of me :)I am extra happy to see that his glasses are almost exactly like my old Armanis with the mirrored lenses and round frames.. They are just waiting in their case for me to wear them. Should I wait or do it now ? :)
July 29, 2010 at 8:42 pm
That look is so androgynous! I feel like I can wear that, and I'm a girl. http://www.themadjungle.blogspot.com
July 29, 2010 at 9:47 pm
Wow love his look, very polished and perfectly unisex, I could totally see myself wearing that outfit rolling the shorts hem!

Khaki Drill 1949 shorts! Oh, how I love these, (even though they don't have any back pockets).
The subject is a cutie, but my 67 year old mother wears pretty much the exact same outfit everyday–including the round sunglasses. If he's also wearing lace up espadrilles with the little wedge heel like Salvador Dali, then I'll know for sure that he's been shopping in mom's closet.

I just love the outfit, especially the belted shorts. Very simple, yet very impressive.

July 30, 2010 at 2:12 am
Nice shorts with the doubled belts…but too high-waisted i find and accentuate too much of the waist….prefer it to be more low-waisted.

What's up Z Cavaricci? We're grabbing a slice and heading over to Chess King and then maybe we'll play some Double Dragon at the arcade.
July 30, 2010 at 2:46 am
I absolutely LOVE this look!!!!
July 30, 2010 at 2:52 am
vintage self-belted shorts are THE shorts to own.
July 30, 2010 at 3:51 am
I had shorts exactly like these in the 80's and I loved them! I had completely forgotten about them. I also had a top just like this one only opposite in color (black with white stripes). Used to wear them together too. Pretty crazy!
July 30, 2010 at 4:07 am
The best bit is definately his forearms-look at the gorgeous skin and veins.
July 30, 2010 at 4:36 am
This is almost too French, but I am most definitely in love with the look.great glasses.
July 30, 2010 at 4:46 am
The colour combo is nice and the look is classic, very classic if you were raised in the Bahamas and saw these everywhere but pleated shorts and a high waist only look decent on a very slender man and even then can look rather too stiff.
July 30, 2010 at 4:58 am
Les parisiens, je les aime!
July 30, 2010 at 5:07 am
he has such great style!
July 30, 2010 at 5:38 am
I am in love with his hight waisted shorts and round glasses.LOx
July 30, 2010 at 5:44 am
He has a vintage style and he reminds me a man from the Fourties!
July 30, 2010 at 6:42 am

Am very taken by the palette and the silhouette but…
did he wax his arm hair?!?
July 30, 2010 at 8:44 am
Oh, I had those in the late '80s and they were so flattering. I'd wear them today in the U.S. so there! I'm old but still have a waistline and good legs.
July 30, 2010 at 9:23 am
Absolutely beautiful…great look and fabulous hairstyle!!
PS I loved the photos from Italy a few weeks ago, such great style, especially the older gentlemen.

Oh how funny, I'm another person posting who wore this exact outfit in the 80s, got my bombay bloomers and russian submariner shirt from a disposal store…and I think…I still have them…WOOHOO!
July 30, 2010 at 11:17 am
Love this look, as classic as you can possibly get. Great sunglasses. Very Parisian!
July 30, 2010 at 1:02 pm
Wooow … inspiring … it has a 1920 vibe to it, doesn't it?
July 30, 2010 at 2:22 pm
Oh my holy cow!He has 100% style!I love this look!The stripes gently match the tone of his shortsAnd the sleek hair looks very smooth with the high waisted look!I won't even comment on the shades.. because I want them!*claps hard*
Too bland…the outfit is missing something…the colors aren't right?
July 30, 2010 at 2:49 pm
With reference to Anon., above, I an afraid I agree about men and shorts-certainly not baggy cargoes- over a certain age (and over a certain weight)and body type. Reference the crowd on a golf match on TV. Generally just doesn't work, in my opinion. Perhaps the Sart. can present a little treatise on the subject?
July 30, 2010 at 2:58 pm
he has a vintage vibe, definitely, but it's in his face as much as it is his clothes and his sunglasses. wonderful shot.-justine
July 30, 2010 at 3:57 pm
Ghurka shorts…been trying to find some myself. Love the fit of those.
July 30, 2010 at 7:26 pm
Oh, absolutely.The colour is perfect.The glasses are perfect.And it doesn't hurt that he is so naturally beautiful. Like a cat. He'd probably look fantastic in a hessian sack, but he looks better in this.
July 30, 2010 at 9:33 pm
July 30, 2010 at 10:43 pm
When men's clothes come back into style, such as this ensemble from the 1980s, it makes it even more difficult for me to throw out old clothes!
July 31, 2010 at 3:42 am
You think the belted shorts are amazing, then you see the glasses and the outfit looks better ten-fold. Shorts like that require killer pins. Lucky for him.
July 31, 2010 at 5:09 am
July 31, 2010 at 6:08 am
That guy is amazing! Classical beauty with a nice classical outfit! I love.
July 31, 2010 at 7:51 am
now that is stunning. real classy and stylish !
July 31, 2010 at 10:01 am
I have 2 pairs of round sun glasses and 2 pairs of prescribed glasses. Not many people wear round glasses in Australia. I hope they will catch up soon.
Love that shorts. if a guy wear those shorts in Australia, they think that you are gay. I think that I can get away because I am :)
July 31, 2010 at 11:58 am
Very cool and smooth. The belt, the tucked in top, the rounded glasses..
July 31, 2010 at 12:18 pm
Makes you want to live in Paris!
July 31, 2010 at 5:21 pm
Love the relax look of this outfit. Absolutly in love with the shorts!
July 31, 2010 at 6:10 pm
Proof once more, we will never be as cool as Parisians.
July 31, 2010 at 6:15 pm
When I see a man in the U.S. whose style is so carefully thought out, I automatically assume that he is "on the other team", if you know what I mean (notthatthere'sanythingwrongwiththat). I'm not sure what to assume about men in France.
July 31, 2010 at 9:47 pm
love the belted shorts but what I really love is the rounded glasses; such a beautiful accessory.
August 1, 2010 at 2:15 am
love all about this outfit..my god
August 1, 2010 at 2:16 am
so adorable shots..love his outfit too

Is the shorts Italian Army???
August 1, 2010 at 8:10 am
@SallyO (6:15 PM) -
What's wrong with U.S. men having "carefully thought out style"? And whether he's on this team, that team, or the other team is not relevant.
August 1, 2010 at 10:24 am
wow, i love the sunglasses!http://piekfein.blogspot.com/
August 1, 2010 at 10:56 am

August 2, 2010 at 2:17 pm
* sigh * this photograph is so exciting
the way his hair is combed is so sleek and clean
his classic good looks will make anyone swoon
the contrast of his tan against the brown striped shirt works beautifully with how well he tucked them into those divine double-belted high-waisted shorts…and folded 1930s sunglasses in hand……
with the gorgeous backdrop of the beautiful trees and the Seine River to boot….
when a picture makes you want to be the person, or know the person and try to emulate the person's fashion choices/style….. and be in their shoes, or try to transport yourself there….is there anything more you can ask for?
THANK YOU for this amazing shot!!!
August 2, 2010 at 9:36 pm
I bought a pair of Ghurka shorts back in the late 80's. I wore them out. I wouldn't buy another pair now though. One go-around with these shorts was enough for me.
I did buy a horizontal sailor stripe shirt this season though. It gets a lot of feedback, most positive.
August 2, 2010 at 9:47 pm
I love this styl of shorts! What brand are they?
August 3, 2010 at 10:39 am
and the veins in his hand/arms
August 3, 2010 at 1:50 pm
I'd love to see him wearing the glasses! Great outfit, but it only works on slim men I think (also the tucked-in shirt)
August 4, 2010 at 12:47 am
Giorgio Armani, please, change Kaka to this guy !!! Great style !!! What a hair !!!

August 12, 2010 at 2:52 pm
One can get these kind of shorts on Ebay. Check for Brit or Aussie shorts period WW II or 50ties. But beware they have a high rise waist and button fly. But that's what real men look best in. And yes they last forever.
August 12, 2010 at 3:28 pm
ooh!! i'm not gonna lie, I Really like this look! I love your blog! definitely one of my biggest inspirations! :D

August 19, 2010 at 1:01 pm
K.H. is just beautiful…I turn to stone around him, so I guess my secret crush will forever just remain a secret crush…who cares about what he's wearing anyway.
August 19, 2010 at 2:44 pm
he is beautifulli love everything in his outfit
August 20, 2010 at 1:57 pm
I don't see many comments against a particular look so I thought I post mine. I think the belted shorts exaggerate his hips and make the look too feminine.
September 9, 2010 at 8:08 pm
i love these round glasses and love the shorts. i just love him i think
September 22, 2010 at 7:50 pm
Wowzah, he knows how to dress!
September 26, 2010 at 11:18 am
those shorts are vintage military shorts, european. i was the head buyer for a company that ralph lauren buys a lot of vintage from every season. i remember these shorts. it is possible that these are a remake of those originals, but they could be the original. those buckles are aluminium, i believe.
November 8, 2010 at 12:17 pm
i actually wore something like this before. and i'm a woman:
