hahahaah I love the belt. Hope t doesn't snap
Love folks are aren't afraid to be creative with their clothes. After all, fashion is art, right?
June 24, 2010 at 1:36 am
I love the touch of neon and this is such a graceful way to carry a sweater!
June 24, 2010 at 1:41 am
June 24, 2010 at 1:42 am
very cool love lime, great shoes, too
June 24, 2010 at 1:46 am
Great idea…beats tying it around your waste & making your butt look huge, or like your trying to hide a huge butt!
June 24, 2010 at 1:47 am
very useful purpose ;)
For some reason I absolutely love the combination of those shoes with the neon green belt- a well balanced, kind of "old meets new" ensemble. I'm not so sure about the jacket though…
June 24, 2010 at 1:50 am
Love the lime green
June 24, 2010 at 1:54 am
What a great shot!! And it's fabulous that the belt is neon! XOXO, Natalya
June 24, 2010 at 1:58 am
love it . plain and simple
Amazing..multi-functional and neon!
ohh GOD!I love this detail!
June 24, 2010 at 2:02 am
oohh. gotta have that belt..i think its trend now for men..
Hahahaha…nice start to a Thursday morning!

Where to begin!? Coulours so amazing esp. for this time of year. Cool trick with the jacket/belt. Loving the shoes and also kinda like the bracelet(s) on the other guy's wrist.
June 24, 2010 at 2:07 am
just a little problem with folds and wrinkles later on the jacket
June 24, 2010 at 2:10 am
i love everything about his style (yip, this time it's more about the style than the photo itself ;) )
the chunky chain, his shoes in combination with the shorts, the neon belt against the khaki pants and the amazing blue jacket… and of course the way he tucked it in the belt. fabulous all over!

I just love this!
oh huge shoes :Sbut I like the yellow and the beige mix.
June 24, 2010 at 2:19 am
ingenious :) love the colours too
June 24, 2010 at 2:21 am
I like the belt he's wearing but most of all I love what this men is wearing….wow!!! Shorts, nice shoes, key/wacth chain, deep blue blazer and his amazing belt….How lovely can a men be :-)

Nouvelle fonction de la ceinture découverte à l'instant. Fallait y penser !C'est pas très esthétique, mais pratique.Merci d'avoir immortalisé ce moment :)
June 24, 2010 at 2:47 am
Ha, pretty funny. It surprises me that he's wearing a bright yellow/green belt in combination with his classic combination with the blue and beige. But it surprises me in a good way. Yes, this guy is funny.
June 24, 2010 at 3:05 am
I love the often inventive and look-twice nuances of menswear. This is so "why didn't I think of that" and seems to have occurred so obviously to him.
The colour palette is wonderous!
June 24, 2010 at 3:07 am
nice. just nice.
June 24, 2010 at 3:10 am
Great invention! And I love his shirt! And shoes!
June 24, 2010 at 3:14 am
never been a huge fan of 3/4 length shorts, and what with a chain, but this guy manages to pull it off.
June 24, 2010 at 3:16 am
Fun neon belt! I beg your pardon but..is it the angle, the shoe design, or are his feet really as long as his calf? Somethis seem off about the proportions.
Man with a neon belt, this must be a dream!
June 24, 2010 at 3:20 am
very lateral thinking. stylish option as opposed to the over-done over the shoulders look
June 24, 2010 at 3:23 am
love the neon belt!
June 24, 2010 at 3:24 am
Not really a fan of this. It's an interesting idea, but the rest of the outfit makes me think it's a bit "too cool for school". Ie. I don't enjoy the chain, length of the shorts and the colour of the belt.
June 24, 2010 at 3:25 am
The colours are amazing….fuscia, red, orange, lime green, navy…love it!

What a great use of colour contrast, fantastic.
good idea! ppl follow this trend! lol
June 24, 2010 at 3:38 am
cool and casual style! I like to make myself believe that this guy is even handsome….
June 24, 2010 at 3:39 am
neat idea – as long as the belt-helfd item isn't all crinkled when it comes out
will have to try it sometime
June 24, 2010 at 3:42 am
I heart the shoes!
June 24, 2010 at 3:46 am
he is indeed fashionista of 21c!
June 24, 2010 at 3:47 am
June 24, 2010 at 3:50 am
The jacket is awesome – it is a casual and nonchalant way of approaching your outfit. But he seems to have that approach to everything – throwing a bright green belt and a chain in with all the classic pieces. Well done! :)Love your blog!LK
I think that's really clever!
June 24, 2010 at 3:54 am
I love the skinny belt and great colour! Thanks for sharing! LOx
June 24, 2010 at 4:00 am
Not the most practical, unless he never tires of standing.
June 24, 2010 at 4:01 am
Wow. Good stuff!!!
I like that. :)
A creative way of solving the common problem of where to place the jacket when not wearing it.
I would have a hard time squeezing it under the belt though. Not because there wouldn't be any room, but because of the feeling of abusing a good jacket, getting it all wrinkled.
Regarding the composition of clothes, I think his shorts are way too wide, too long for my taste, and his shoes looks a bit too big for some reason.
Like the dash of strong colour in the belt though, and the heavy keychain together with that lovely blue-toned jacket. A nice way of dressing it all down a bit.
June 24, 2010 at 4:06 am
Wait until someone rifles through the pockets of his jacket (which he won't feel because it's behind him) and then nicks his wallet – then he won't feel so smart…
wow, this is really unique. i like it though, its way better than tying the sweater around you waist. i also love the colors, lime green, blue, and brown.
as I said in florence you are a genius to always find the perfect time to shoot

Here's one accessory that is definitely worth its weight. And in a great, punchy color too… just hope his pants aren't loose :)

June 24, 2010 at 5:30 am
First love that zingy fluro belt cutting across the cool colours, then the shots of warm colours in the background – hot pink, orange, red, yellow.Hey & I like his jacket slung through the belt! Never seen that before.
June 24, 2010 at 5:45 am
love the colour and composition of this shot the pink through yellow to blue is fabulous.Prada hands free?
June 24, 2010 at 5:53 am
June 24, 2010 at 5:59 am
the belt's color is so elegant to see.
June 24, 2010 at 6:11 am
Clever:) It's nice to see sometimes that people use their clothes for what it's worth. It's not necessarily ruining their style. Overloaded pockets are another example.. Btw, thumbs up for italian men, and their clothing style! :)
June 24, 2010 at 6:22 am
I'm amazed at the way how he pulled up the floroscent belt with that attire. looks gr8.
June 24, 2010 at 6:27 am
Such an appropriate misappropriation. Style is about ideas, isn't it?
June 24, 2010 at 6:31 am
so funny! I laughed when I saw this. But I do like the color combo – especially the neon belt.
June 24, 2010 at 6:37 am
Those shoes!Too cute.
June 24, 2010 at 6:45 am
lol creative way to hold on to stuff. luv the colour of the belt

Hmm interesting idea. I wonder what the belt is made of. Must be elastic. Please send me one and the shoes and jacket too while you are at it.
June 24, 2010 at 7:02 am
Excellent idea, practical and original
June 24, 2010 at 7:06 am

You gotta love the attitude behind this. Makes you wanna know more about the individual.His style is very cool too.Are those Hermes Quoique shoes he's wearing?
June 24, 2010 at 7:39 am
Love the shoes and shorts most.–and a great idea with a jacket or blazer you don't want getting overly crushed from the usual tie around the waist. Although I will say that fluoro colour belt is all wrong.
June 24, 2010 at 7:56 am
I love this picture … as usual…
June 24, 2010 at 8:04 am
love the style.
love the classic blue shirt and khaki bottom look! and that belt! such a twist to the whole outfit =)
That is the crystalization of the fuctionality of clothing meeting style. Awesome!

June 24, 2010 at 9:04 am
who would've thought a belt would be so useful! Amazing!
June 24, 2010 at 9:06 am
For a minute I thought the jacket was an addition to the shorts and I got really excited. Still love the flashes of neon with camel/khaki/caramel thing that's going on right now though.
June 24, 2010 at 9:19 am
Lazer detail! Looks nice the khaki shorts.
June 24, 2010 at 9:20 am
Interesting? – yes. Fashionable? – No. I really do not care for the chain-on-the-wallet look either. But, hey I wore my sweatshirts inside out in the 80's. This (fleece-in-the-belt) look is far better than that silly 80's trend, so anything can catch on.
June 24, 2010 at 9:21 am
Really? It reminds me of my grandson's shoe velcro sticking to his behind when he crouched down and when he rose his shoe was stuck to his butt. His sister laughed her head off. Tell you something? I think this looks stupid. Don't like the shoes or chain either. Doesn't leave much…
June 24, 2010 at 10:17 am
June 24, 2010 at 10:23 am
OMG! I love fluo colors and this belt is awesome, especially on a man!
June 24, 2010 at 10:26 am
Why not?!!! And imagine what he can hang from that chain!
June 24, 2010 at 10:36 am
Oh please, I've done this with my belts ever since I can remember. Perhaps this is more of an European thing (I'm from Finland).
June 24, 2010 at 10:37 am
Love the background colours but hte belt…http://coolneeded.blogspot.com
June 24, 2010 at 10:40 am
haha what a gorgeous image.
June 24, 2010 at 11:03 am
One of the few sartorial traits in the military is where soldiers choose to place their berets when they're not wearing them. Some put them boringly in a pocket, some wear them British-style folded on their shoulder and some do as this gentleman does, and tuck them into the belt (both the back and right side are popular. Never in the front.)
June 24, 2010 at 11:17 am
June 24, 2010 at 11:24 am
hahaha that's very funny. I like his chain as well.
June 24, 2010 at 11:32 am
Oh my, not to be redundant, but those are some large shoes. Love the belt, but the jacket just looks silly.
June 24, 2010 at 11:43 am
I would like to see him fold/hang his jacket over the chain.
June 24, 2010 at 11:53 am
Wow! Is that a design? Or just another man putting it that he doesn't know…
June 24, 2010 at 12:22 pm
ahahaha! Better than wrapping it around the waist like I did in the 90s. YUCK!

June 24, 2010 at 1:11 pm
great shoes, etc., but when oh when will those chains go away???

June 24, 2010 at 1:22 pm
JUST GREAT AND IT IS WORTH A SMILE.I GUESS IT WOULD NOT BE SO OBVIOUS,IF THE BELT WOULD BE MORE TONED DOWN AND NOT IN SUCH A GREAT NEON GREEN!
June 24, 2010 at 1:23 pm
How have I never seen this before? I think it looks great. Love how the flouro best clashes with the more classical and muted tones. A+
June 24, 2010 at 1:34 pm
funny!! i like the neon
I'm digging the other guys bangles – – sexy. More jewelry on men!
June 24, 2010 at 1:59 pm
nicely done. but, i wouldn't do this with a blazer–WRINKLES. if sweater is fine.
the nickel fit
June 24, 2010 at 2:25 pm
the nerve! gotta love function :)
June 24, 2010 at 2:28 pm
I love it! Such a great color against the beige shorts.
June 24, 2010 at 2:39 pm
I dont think the gentleman was trying to create a style but look out for copycats around the world who try to mimic this look. I am kind of sick of seeing copycats. Dont you guys see that ppl these days dressed the same – globally?
June 24, 2010 at 2:43 pm
such a great balance- the subtlety of the classic khaki and striped shirt, the playfulness of the shorts, a really great shoe and then that super bold pop of neon! well done!!!
that is multifunctional!
June 24, 2010 at 2:45 pm
THE BELT WOOOWW!!
June 24, 2010 at 2:47 pm
June 24, 2010 at 2:53 pm
thats a genius idea!
June 24, 2010 at 2:54 pm
love everything about this! clever use of the belt and each item works so well together. the splash of neon is fabulous
June 24, 2010 at 3:14 pm
Nice choice of colour, very vibrant
June 24, 2010 at 3:31 pm
Love this neon colour. Classic.
June 24, 2010 at 3:48 pm
that's so funny , it's so simple but so genius at the same time . i really like how much the belt pops out .

I love it — summer always brings this predicament: when it's too hot during the day for a jacket, but too cold at night to be left without one
June 24, 2010 at 4:30 pm
I mentioned the length of the man's shorts above (way too long in my opinion). Felt I just had to get it off my chest, that we men have got much to learn from women regarding this issue.
No matter how great, tall or slim you look, shorts of that length ending right on the middle of the calves, will turn any man into looking like a misshaped midget.
In my opinion, shorts ending somewhere around the knee, or a few inches above are optimal.
June 24, 2010 at 4:37 pm
I'll never be able to get into oxfords with no socks. I don't think it looks bad aesthetically, but it lacks a certain honesty or consistency (not sure what it is exactly).
June 24, 2010 at 4:41 pm

June 24, 2010 at 4:54 pm
Shoes look like they might be from Calvin Kllein… Nice.And don't we all have our hands full all the time, so we come up with such ideas!
Looks like it's from Jil Sander's SS 2005 collection. I have the same colour from that year, but it's slightly wider, so I'm not sure. I also have one in neon pink from that Jil collection that's that exact size. Maybe there are several versions. Who knows?
June 24, 2010 at 5:04 pm
The belt in this image and the broom in the previous are so similar. Glad to see this color show up twice in a row!
Wow actually love this, the belt idea was so so smart!

June 24, 2010 at 6:13 pm
The neon green with khaki shorts is cool. The chain belt and brown shoes let's me know this guy is not afraid of mixing it up. The secondary use for the belt is, um, creative to say the very least!

June 24, 2010 at 8:54 pm
Wow, what a creative look – between the multi-tasking belt, the chain wallet and the pressed khakis with dressy shoes, this is quite unique!
June 24, 2010 at 9:55 pm
My guess is that this isn't a true belt, rather a nylon webbing tie-down strap of sorts. This would be quite innovative. If this is the case, the guy may have purchased several for less than $10 in total.
June 25, 2010 at 1:42 am
his shoes are to die forthe perfect shape and my favourite colour…
June 25, 2010 at 3:34 am
ha, ha, great snap, it is stylish and practical
June 25, 2010 at 3:38 am
i absolutely love the touch of neon green with the neutral rest of the outfit.
June 25, 2010 at 4:40 am
Very cool outfit. The color of the belt gives it such a twist.I would have loved to see that guys face though…
June 25, 2010 at 8:40 am
I have taken to tucking my hat in a pocket or in the small of my back to get it out of the way +(mind you, I mean driver's hats or 8/4 hats, or even a crushable fedora). This picture illustrates a very effective way to keep track of your outergarment and still have it out of the way –and out of the dirt. Very smart way to go.

Sorry Scott. Can't get into this. The awful shorts length (I know they're not Dickies, but they remInd me of them), the wallet chain(Chrome Hearts?) and the rest of the ensemble, seems like 'Tommy Lee attempts la bella figura'. Was he Italian? When I was in Florence last summer, I saw beautifully dressed Italian men that would sooner die than take their jackets off. And the guys that did, still did it with real sprezzatura. The jacket in belt isn't insouciant, it's just sloppy no matter how ingeniously or nicely he folds and tucks it.

June 26, 2010 at 1:00 am
Not very practical, unless he never tires of standing.
June 26, 2010 at 3:53 am
there are so many nice things happening with this outfit but that stuffed jacket under the belt is not one of them. hmmm? wonder the circumstance?
June 26, 2010 at 10:38 am
I would love to see the outfit with the blazer on (neon yellow/green with navy blue? how cool is that?).
Awesome way to get a jacket off your hands!
June 26, 2010 at 12:27 pm
I would LOVE to see what the top half of this gentleman looks like! *drool*

I think the belt is from Too2Late, and as they make them from a special very strong material, it won't snap!

January 19, 2013 at 12:59 pm
Well, the jacket looks dumb hung from his belt like that. It’s a fashion faux pas right there. Don’t know how can so many people like it. But what I loveis his belt color and his pants and the added chain.
