    Great, but I can’t get used to the too-short vest look. The gent in yesterday’s post (waiting for the Ralph show) had it, too.

    Vests should be long enough to cover belt buckles, and trouser waistbands, unless you are a Hell’s Angel’s biker girl wearing a vest as a top. That is diff.

    Nice.. Rugged, but nicely put together. I’ve always loved the warm colours. Love his vest, fits him nicely. Great backdrop too Scott!

    the outfit is unique-a very modern twist with pants tucked in boots. but what i am really loving is the entire photograph-excellent color tones & composition!

    I love his boots!!!!!! Anybody know who designed them???

      They are standard ‘packer’ boots, worn by most people who work with stock in the backcountry. Chippewa makes a pair almost identical to these — they were not ‘designed’ by anybody, as such. A bit pretentious to wear them in this context — so far from their intended purpose (and by someone who clearly has never actually used them for that purpose).

        there’s nothing pretentious about wearing something you love, no matter what you’re using it for. if you love the design, that should be enough.

    outfit works really well because of the proportions and tailored fit… you need tighter first layers when doing a vest and coat over them… especially when the vest is tight and a bit short, which is absolutely the only way to wear vests if you want to lengthen your legs and shorten the torso… the colour palette is masculine but interesting… it’s the smile from the eyes and the comfort in the way he carries the whole look that makes this shot absolutely delightful…

    such a pleasure visiting your blog Mr Schuman!!!

    Boots to Beanie wonderful!!! So many reasons to love…

    Who ever said matching your shoes and bag is just for women???

    It looks as though that crooked rascal smile by sheer force of charm has lifted his coat front, elbow and collar just a bit higher on that side. And if the beanie were any shade of camel, brown, caramel, sand, beige, tan or god forbid cafe au lait, it just wouldn’t be as good.

    There is exactly one reason in this neck of the woods a man could tuck his pant legs into his boots and not get his ass kicked: rattlesnakes. And that is exactly the reason this blog has made its way into my heart and my morning alongside my cup of coffee – all of the places and people I can see in the comfort of my pajamas and slippers – what luxury you afford me, Scott.

    For those of you who asked, these appear to be a type of nouveau, laceup cowboy boots that were all the rage with the redneck/rodeo set back in the 90s. Some refer to them as “lace ropers” although this gentleman’s heels are a bit taller than “roper” heels. The older versions of manufactuers such as Justin Boots would have fit this style, although their newer versions are nowhere near as cool as these.

    These are called “packer” boots and are made by companies like Chippewa and Loredo. Similar in style to a lace cowboy boot.

  93. Questioner

    February 26, 2009 at 5:43 pm

    This is why I visit your site every day, Sart. You show us people in outfits that can provide inspiration for our personal styles. This makes me want to try the olive-to-camel color palette with a single pop of color and the shrunken vest (as vests are good for waist definition and the shorter cut might give the illusion of longer legs). I really like the boots, but as other have pointed out, the tucked-in look won’t play for those of us who don’t work in fashion or a similar artistic industry (although I wish I could). I also like the contrast of the casual, slouchy bag with the more tailored outfit. Great outfit and, as always, a great photo. Thanks!

    Why it’s a “Dapper Fur Trapper.”

    I love the way this guy blends the vintage in the modern world. I’m diggin’ his style. I’m not really feeling the pants tucked in the boots look. But somehow he manages to pull it off! Thanks for posting. I’m inspired!

    This is such a great ensemble. The red cap gives it a good punch of color without being too much. Usually, I don't like the idea of reds and greens together, but the tan coat creates the perfect balance.

    These boots are call “Packers” the best brand name quality brands are (White’s boots, Nick’s boots, and Drew’s boots) I own boots from every supplier listed above, all boots are hand made, and to your taste. Expect to pay a minimum of $400 a pair.

    Trying to hard and looks a complete fool. Everything is a size too small apart from the boots – which makes the boots look even more gigantic than they already are. He looks like some kind of crazed wading bird.
