I love this look! And beautyful colourful scarf!
Peace and love!
July 7, 2010 at 4:03 pm
I like the jacket and the neck scarf
July 7, 2010 at 4:11 pm
Denim which moves so far beyond its utilitarian roots, either through excessive tailoring (like pleats or flares) or decoration (like those godawful embroidered back pockets and flaps popular a few years ago, or elaborate designer finishes) are soulless contrivances of fashion and are avoided by people with taste.
July 7, 2010 at 4:12 pm
love the trousers and the belt…was hoping to bump into garance and you in berlin… (for the fashion week)…we loved berlin!
July 7, 2010 at 4:16 pm
Looks elegant and very comfy. Love the way he carries that neck scarf.J
July 7, 2010 at 4:17 pm
It's sophisticated fashion with a rural charm! Loose trousers and tighter fitting top portrays a wise and intelligent persona, – great stuff!
July 7, 2010 at 4:21 pm
If this is looking ahead, I want a time machine to run away….

Baggy jeans – again ?
Luckily I kept my baggy jeans from the last time this cut was stylin' – like 5 years ago.I have learned not to get rid of any clothing as styles seen to come and go so quickly anymore, one must be prepared for any shift that will predictably show up again in 5-10 year cycles.Now if square toed men's shoes would only come back into vogue…
July 7, 2010 at 4:27 pm
how effortlessly chic…its all in the attitude though, this ensemble on someone with less confidence and ease could have been totally miss-fitting
Looks like some kind of Turkish / Oriental shape to me, but then nobody would wear a Hermes belt with Ottoman-era trousers… All the rest is perfect, salt and pepper beard, scarf, cardigan…

love the scarF!colorfull and very cool!
July 7, 2010 at 4:40 pm
not too sure about the Hermes belt or its length…
July 7, 2010 at 4:43 pm
the neck scarf is something special!! awesome look!
can never seem to figure out a good way to incorporate a scarf into my fits. gotta work on that more. his looks great on him!
July 7, 2010 at 4:45 pm
Very nice. Love the belt and scarf.
July 7, 2010 at 4:52 pm
I like his scarf (or neck piece or whatever you call it for a man)
His slacks appear to fit him poorly and I'm unsure about what he's wearing on top of his shirt…..a tiny sweater?
The Hermes belt buckle screams INSECURITY to me, but anything "logo-y" always does. (like a need to validate your sense of fashion by showing an obvious logo)
He's not blowing me away with his outfit, but he's got some attitude!
July 7, 2010 at 4:55 pm
Love the belt…. and the scarf is nice too…. love the entire look.
July 7, 2010 at 5:09 pm
These are certainly the most elegant baggy jeans I've ever seen. And the Hermes belt… nice!

July 7, 2010 at 5:19 pm
I love the colourful scarf. It makes the outfit very unique!
July 7, 2010 at 5:21 pm
The belt is just boring. The rest is great, especially the trousers.
July 7, 2010 at 5:25 pm
like the scarf. and I love that his jacket looks like a cardigan, but it's still a jacket.:)szucs
July 7, 2010 at 5:39 pm
I like the belt with the jeans.
July 7, 2010 at 5:50 pm
hermes logo belt and demin with pleats. It's all far too self-conscious and not something to emulate.
Baggy jeans = no, no, no, and no.
That's Not My Age
July 7, 2010 at 5:52 pm
A tricky look but he carries it off brilliantly
July 7, 2010 at 5:54 pm
love this guy… i feel like he has great stories to tell!
July 7, 2010 at 6:07 pm
I love baggy jeans! I´m happy it is being used again!
July 7, 2010 at 6:25 pm
July 7, 2010 at 6:37 pm
Nope, hate baggy pants, especially on anyone over 18.
The Original Swedish Blonde!
July 7, 2010 at 6:39 pm
Hmmm…makes me think of a puzzle….when every piece is put in…and then you see the big picture finally…and it's PERFECT! :)
I love the expression on his face! Beautiful scarf too :)
that neck scarf is a welcome surprise!
July 7, 2010 at 6:50 pm
I am worried you have to be beyond thin to pull off this look, in a man with a little thicker shape it would look funny, don't you think? It's all a game of proportions…
July 7, 2010 at 6:56 pm
Me encanta el pañuelo!! Es perfecto y completa el look!
July 7, 2010 at 6:59 pm
Wow! One of my favorites since I started reading this.
Great pants and scarf…wish more men had such a good taste.
July 7, 2010 at 7:02 pm
Yes, he is fashionable but not effortless in his attempt.
July 7, 2010 at 7:07 pm
I agree with ANONYMOUS above"souless contrivances"…well put Old Sport. Hooray for the original Levis that sag in all the right places!
July 7, 2010 at 7:10 pm
This is denim served up with nothing but class. I love it! I wouldn't of though they were denim unless pointed out to me.
July 7, 2010 at 7:20 pm
love it .
July 7, 2010 at 8:33 pm
Baggy jeans, however there's nothing baggy about that combination. Stylishly casual.
July 7, 2010 at 8:38 pm
LOVE THAT MAN!!!
July 7, 2010 at 8:50 pm
the belt is a bit superfluous and out of place
July 7, 2010 at 9:09 pm
anonymous who talks about "denim's utilitarian roots" is probably just mad because they don't dress this well. I live in the city and don't know anyone who wears denim for it's "utility."
July 7, 2010 at 9:36 pm
All you who decry the Hermes belt are just envious! He looks fabulous. You know you would wear this belt if you had one!
Let say hes baggy balanced…. ;)
i really like this look , i like the structure of the pants and the colourful , tucked scarf .
July 7, 2010 at 9:40 pm
This outfit is hideous. The scarf is just okay. I've seen guys rock that much more iller. I hate pleats. I think it's his glare that makes it.
July 7, 2010 at 9:48 pm
If there is one thing I've learned, it's to ignore fads and novelties (baggy, pleated jeans)and stick to what looks best on me and everyone else — the classics.
Fashion creates extremes because it has to to survive, which is why we go from Hedi Slimane's extremely slim trou to silliness like we see in this photo.
Being stylish doesn't necessarily mean being right on trend at all times. But it DOES know when to put your foot down and say Hell No.
Nobody except the very tall and slim can pull off baggy, tapered jeans, so let's just forget about this trend, shall we?
July 7, 2010 at 10:18 pm
Baggy can work for a tall guy, but when you're 5'7'' and 135lb. (like myself) you look like Aladdin minus the nifty vest.
July 7, 2010 at 11:07 pm
Love his overall look and demeanor, but the return of pleated pants makes me cringe.
July 7, 2010 at 11:13 pm
Like the idea, but not the execution. Belt is quite tacky.
July 7, 2010 at 11:24 pm
The beard and scarf combo was what really caught my eye here.
July 7, 2010 at 11:26 pm
I am not sure these denims are actually baggy as we have known it, but more harem style baggy. I think they look great–and I Iike the rest of the outfit, esp the scarf as it lifts the whole look. A generally well groomed gentleman.
July 7, 2010 at 11:45 pm
Love the belt!
July 7, 2010 at 11:59 pm
July 8, 2010 at 12:15 am
How about the chap in the background with the red trousers on? He looks awesome!
July 8, 2010 at 12:33 am
I must agree with some of the earlier comments that the look at me H on the belt is a bit much. No need to brag. The rest of the outfit looks great – if a touch too put togther – I think Australians share the feeling with most Americans that men shouldn't look like they parade in front of mirror excessivly before hitting the street (even if they do).
Liked shirt, gorgeous scarf, and short jacket.
Then we got to the denim pants. Kinda ruined it for me. Retro. And not in a good way.
July 8, 2010 at 12:41 am
If only all men dressed like this.
July 8, 2010 at 12:44 am
July 8, 2010 at 1:09 am
i feel so 90s'
July 8, 2010 at 1:36 am
That Hermes belt got to go, I know it's expensive but it makes the look cheap!
July 8, 2010 at 1:43 am
looks relaxed, but carefully coordinated.
July 8, 2010 at 1:49 am
The Scarf is the highlight.
July 8, 2010 at 2:01 am
I like the guy in the back, with the red trousers… did you take his picture aswell, would have liked to see his outfit with a clearer view?! But also liked this guy of course, stylish and yet relaxed.
July 8, 2010 at 2:13 am
Eh, denim is a fabric and we can do anything with fabric. But, I am just getting use to the tailored look in denim to fast forward back to the 70's.
July 8, 2010 at 2:33 am
The proportions seem wrong but maybe because they're new to me. Nah. Don't like the super baggy pants; they look sloppy.
But I do like the short jacket, casual shirt, and colorful ascot.
July 8, 2010 at 3:00 am
Awh the Hermes belt. So well put together. <3
July 8, 2010 at 3:28 am
that's what i call a "flavour man"…i love the flavour of this outfit!
July 8, 2010 at 3:37 am
Baggy denim creates a volume that will not look well in anything but a photo shoot. Stylish men should avoid it.
July 8, 2010 at 3:57 am
July 8, 2010 at 4:17 am
Love this model of pants! Very elagant! Great belt too!
July 8, 2010 at 4:45 am
too chic to speak…..

Me too.I love de scarf and the Hermes belt.I want the scarf and NOW.
July 8, 2010 at 5:38 am
Waow, very interesting and nicely done.I love this look ! Every thing works perfectly well together.
July 8, 2010 at 6:25 am
The light blue in the shirt and scarf work nicely with the grey in his beard. Neck scarves are win.
July 8, 2010 at 6:33 am
There's a bit of a Middle Eastern influence to those jeans – they're a bit like Turkish salwa (sp?) pants.
July 8, 2010 at 7:19 am
Jonathan,its nobody's fault you live in the suburbs..Denin IS UTILITARIAN. end of discussion.
July 8, 2010 at 7:37 am
Neatly groomed, well-proportioned clothing. Love the belt and scarf. A+++
July 8, 2010 at 7:53 am
everything but the trousers.
July 8, 2010 at 8:00 am
We are in a golden age of fashion as there are no set trends for each season. You can wear practically anything you want as long as you can pull it off.
July 8, 2010 at 8:17 am
I like the pant…great class
July 8, 2010 at 8:36 am
July 8, 2010 at 8:58 am
This man is awasomy chic and sophisticated. He looks great in this baggy jeans, however he seems to be also a very tall man. I do think that this cut is really suitable for very particular figure'shapes (both: men and women)
I am not a fan of this type of jeans, I do really think that to wear them well you have to be very, very self – knowledgeable…
July 8, 2010 at 9:02 am
This is a look few can pull off. I think he succeeded because of his slim body type. I shudder to think of this type of pants on anyone not slim and tall, however. This is a case of knowing what looks good specifically on you, and damn the critics!
July 8, 2010 at 9:09 am
Yikes! My 80s fashion come back to haunt me in the form of an older gentleman:/
July 8, 2010 at 9:18 am
Love his outfit..Fashion is all about taking risks..I have to have his Hermes belt
July 8, 2010 at 9:26 am
Interesting look, but I feel that he tried too hard. The scarf is awesome, the baggy jeans are sort of cool, the belt is an attention grabber, the jacket (or whatever that is) is interesting, but together, it's all too much. I don't think the whole is greater than the sum of the parts here, but he's still a handsome man!
Art of Belt
July 8, 2010 at 9:37 am
Just realised that I got this Hermes belt. Not sure about the baggy look though – too "untidy" sort of…
Great look. He makes me feel better about genes with a tendency of balding. Scarf is great, love the simple combination of plain+neutral and patterned+bright. The jeans remind me of the harem pants trend that has been up for some time now. Looks good on men too, if you have the right spirit. Never though jeans would be the fabric though…
July 8, 2010 at 9:52 am
That neck scarf looks elegant and cool!!
July 8, 2010 at 10:09 am
I like the jeans, they look comfortable, but the rest of the outfit, not so much. It just looks like he's trying too hard.
July 8, 2010 at 10:34 am
everything's great except for the belt. aren't his own initials enough?
July 8, 2010 at 10:37 am
And what happpend with the man in the background???
July 8, 2010 at 11:52 am
Extremely nice. Difficult to judge the leg because of where the shot ends. Great waist; not sure how I would respond if the legs were wide (although they don't look it).
July 8, 2010 at 12:15 pm
LOVE that style! Looks amazing! Only in Italy, ha?
July 8, 2010 at 1:51 pm
I like jacket,pant and scarf!Love it! Perfection…
July 8, 2010 at 2:39 pm
I love when a man embellishes his outfit with a scarf- a very flattering addition.
July 8, 2010 at 2:49 pm
this is SO cool outfit. I love when man wears something on his neck….scarf, tie, whatever..it's great!
July 8, 2010 at 4:15 pm
Very nice, sleek and sexy. Is that a cashmere sweater? I love the addition of the scarf and the Hermes belt. I'm in love as usual!
July 8, 2010 at 4:27 pm
The pants are unbelievably awesome! The whole look is beautiful but I really fell in love with the pants!
July 8, 2010 at 4:45 pm
I really like his outfit.
July 8, 2010 at 7:07 pm
is that scarf liberty of london? i recognize the colours… his facial hair is very interesting as well!
July 8, 2010 at 7:48 pm
I'm surprised so many people like the pants. They look terribly out of place to me.

July 8, 2010 at 8:07 pm
Looking forward to this loose cut pants and jeans with pleats. Wide and spacious on top but tapered to the hems. Enough of flat-fronts.
July 8, 2010 at 8:39 pm
This man seriously looks like Fat Boy Slim. Is that him or his evil twin?? c'mon people!
July 8, 2010 at 11:09 pm
I don't know if anyone has said this yet, but no pleats gentleman. Please, no pleats. Pleated denim is especially hideous.
July 9, 2010 at 12:33 am
That's great!But still don't understand why Italians love to make "H" belt stand out.
July 9, 2010 at 4:15 am
the belt says all: H FOR HIDEOUS
July 9, 2010 at 6:41 am
I like the look of his watch, and the relaxed pant.
However its the chap sporting the red pants, white shirt and navy sports coat in the background that caught my eye. Glasses too perhaps?
poor guy fashion victim
July 9, 2010 at 8:13 am
Do u look the outfit or the the person?He is great, fabulous. He can wear one (perfect) H belt with a baggy jeans, and be elegant, because he haven't bias.bias about H belt, bias about the age, bias about… Are you sure understand fashion?
July 9, 2010 at 8:19 am
Oh, no! No baggy pants. I loved the fact that pants got tighter and shorter and think my husband looks v. good.
July 9, 2010 at 8:53 am
Love the scarf!
July 9, 2010 at 8:55 am
The jeans look ridiculous!
July 9, 2010 at 10:03 am
Baggys are back.. thanks god.. i cannot stand skinny looks anymore
July 9, 2010 at 6:48 pm
I know him, he works in fashion in berlin. I like his style and i adore wide le trousers in every way…even the slightly oriental way.
July 9, 2010 at 8:43 pm
I like the tailored cut of the jeans….

July 9, 2010 at 10:33 pm
I believe you already 'looked forward' with the original baggy pants picture you took a while back, almost a year, it was the gentlemen at the Ralph Lauren show with the yellow blazer and baggy jeans combo with the shaved head and full on beard. He carried this look far better. I think its on the style.com site as you never posted it up on the blog
July 10, 2010 at 4:10 am
Oh my this is so amazing! I love this look on guys!
Btw I love your blog :)
I am new come have a look
July 10, 2010 at 9:00 am
July 10, 2010 at 10:54 am
I smell a come back of pleats. I've seen pleats now in several new mens wear collections. Interesting new positioning and such. I like these pants. The scarf takes it there.
July 10, 2010 at 4:33 pm
Like the scarf, and the look works with his body type and demeanor (ergo, it's a great example of personal style), but I don't like the pants per se at all. I find the sillouette they create aesthetically unappealing on most people. Hate the belt, too… why would someone secure enough to wear this look resort to An Obvious And Tacky Logo?
July 10, 2010 at 9:51 pm
i got the exact same belt ! love this look , the scarf is awesome!
July 10, 2010 at 9:58 pm
I guess I am in the minority but nothing about this works and I'm trying to be polite here. He looks decades older than he actually is. Baggy pleats don't work. Cardigan, in summer? The neck scarf is choking his posture, the beard is an unattractive scream for attention. The belt – i HATE logos as style, they are EGO on display, like tagging.
July 11, 2010 at 8:14 am
Loving the scarf, just adding a pop of colour there :)
July 11, 2010 at 10:31 pm
so classic but so progressive, so fashion-forward but so personal. i can see how many would dislike this outfit, but the individualism and elegance is, to me, unbelievably striking. a true modern gentleman.
July 12, 2010 at 12:32 am
that is one awesome pair of jeans!!
July 12, 2010 at 6:15 am
cool look! especially when worn with the scarf!
July 12, 2010 at 10:44 am
This is what I want to see, what I expect, when I read this Blog! Individual Styles, and he has got it! Da Capo!
July 12, 2010 at 3:38 pm
This look is very modern. Love it! Elegant without being uptight. I would prefer it without the scarf!
July 12, 2010 at 7:39 pm
I love this scarf! Not too sure how I feel about the baggy pants…eh!
July 15, 2010 at 2:45 am
Gosh he reminds me of someone but can't place it. He looks like maybe he has narrower shoulders, and I think this jacket works very well on him. Those pants are great and I love his attitude!
July 15, 2010 at 10:45 am
What a flawless ensemble: harem-like, baggy trousers–which are so unexpected on a man–balanced with a streamlined jacket and shirt and topped off with a gorgeously tied colorful neck scarf. Bravo!
July 16, 2010 at 1:46 pm
Looove this outfit!!!
July 22, 2010 at 8:32 am
What a stylish INDIVIDUAL! I'd much rather see this than all those clones who 'chop and change' with the so called 'latest trends'. WAKE UP PEOPLE!! Look at some of the great examples of PERSONAL style on this blog, not just at the individual items of clothing! All those 'logo whores' who made a point of disliking the belt are just showing off because they recognised that it was Hermes…who cares! I personally don't like logos on clothing but how do we know that he didn't just buy the belt because his name begins with 'H'! I think the proportions (especially the jacket and trousers) work wonderfully for HIM. He seems to be a confident and intelligent man who is obviously comfortable with his OWN style!
July 24, 2010 at 7:53 am
where can i buy this pants in Milan???
July 26, 2010 at 4:32 pm
I love this, though it's message is a bit quirky. Covering your neck has always seemed somewhat uptight to me, but his pants feel quite the opposite. I like the color play betwwn his jacket, pants, and shirt.
July 29, 2010 at 2:05 pm
just please say no to baggy jeans
August 12, 2010 at 9:14 am
I don't think it's the clothes. I just think that guy could pull off anything.
August 12, 2010 at 8:32 pm
Imagine this guy *without* the scarf. Thatsa-lotta-neck.
The man has confidence but the jeans and belt are truly truly truly awful.

August 28, 2010 at 11:41 pm
I like the look. The scarf made it nicer. A nice way to attract people.

September 8, 2010 at 5:44 am
Love the guy in the red pants and navy jacket in the background!
