    i see straight up american guy style in this. never thought that “sloppy-chic” would catch on?

    my mom would hate it, but i see it every day in some form on my college campus.

    And I have a hat like that. Perhaps I should do something with it.

    The look is sloppy and even careless, but the air of his having pulled together his favorite pieces and how they work on his frame (I can imagine a certain type of long, thin body under those clothes)makes them compelling. And European or American, the hat, the ear-plugs and the shawl bring this look far above that of your average college student.
    All in all this is the guy I want to meet at the bar, bookstore, coffee house.

    I actually adore the jacket details and the hat/piercings combo, but I really don’t like the slouchiness of the rest of the outfit, especially the pants. ^^; But if you like what you wear, then wear it, right? :)

    I thought it was a tall bloke until I scrolled down. It was a bit of a shock actually. I think the outfit would work much better if the pants were a smaller size and the slightest bit of ankle was showing?

    Hmmm, this is a tough one: I kinda appreciate the aesthetic, the long lines, as a result of the all buttoned shirt and the snug-fitting blazer. The pants do throw me a bit- I think they are the right idea, it’s just that he’s been sitting down, walking around etc, that they fall too low on his waist.

    there is something rather off about the proportions here, and hopefully it’s intentional. his pants make him look like a penguin (pigeon toes notwithstanding), the jacket is a bit young in the sleeves and the hat…well, it’s just too small. he doesn’t look bad in my estimation, just ill-proportioned.

    He’s clearly doing it all on purpose. The American guys who go for sloppiness suffer from the self-delusion that they are hunky no matter what they wear. This guy is calculating nerdiness–the hat pushed back, the buttons done up to the neck. For all its sloppiness, there is nothing haphazard here.

    All the same, I prefer Mr. Ricci, myself.

    Love how he is clowning with proportions. Clearly he’s not looking to conform to ‘the rules’ – he’s playing. Is that a Tiroler jacket (and cap)?

    It’s Way! Such a good style and so talented- check out the pics of the Les Homme show at Milan Fashion Week – he styled it! By far the best show and yet nothing like his own personal style. A true innovator.

    Like rolled up pants and his button down shirt, not really convinced of how he combined it but at leats it’s kinda flashy.

    Smashing jacket! It is not so great, however, that it compensates for the rest of the outfit. Notice how the bottom of the jacket is level with the waist of the chinos; he purposefully makes them ride low below his natural waist, and then he rolls the cuffs up, further shortening his legs!!! Braided belt, I know opinions are split on those, even if fashion magazines are pushing them lately. Pair this jacket with well-fitting classics that accentuate it, and you have a winner!

    HEY. I’ve been chastised on this site numerous times for not being nice. But today this guy’s getting picked on. Because he’s a guy is he supposed to be tougher?

    I think his look is OK. At least it’s different.

    If he pulled up his trousers, he wouldn’t have to roll up the legs. Otherwise, I like.

    I think this man has created precisely the image he set out to project. It’s edgy, nerdy, frumpy and daring–and it dares you to try to decipher his message. A message that’s definitely from the other side of the the stylistic mainstream.
    Thanks, Sart, for a lesson in expanding one’s mindset.

    Very interesting and very cool. Not as instantly gratifying as most of the looks posted but it’s the skewed take on a classic outfit that makes it. A mixture of punk and prep is as close as I can get to defining this look.

    This look is hit-or-miss. He possesses the build to carry it off, sort of reminds me of characters in Tennessee Williams’ plays. However, the same pants could look terrible on someone shorter or fatter. And the shoes is a no-no for me. Perhaps the charm of this shot lies in the whole combination, elegance in rawness?

    I love the mix: very fresh,classic striped shirt, the pair of chinos dropped very low, the tiny jacket and shoes. It works fine: it would be better if he puts a little order and makes it looking more recherché. meanwhile I think the detail which is very important hjere is this neglgé way he’s wearing those very classic pieces.
    My look for the next spring would be like his but more recherché : with lots of accessories ( a silk carré I bought in flea market, a Givenchy vintage dotted tie?…) I wish spring were there.
    Actually nowadays, classic pieces would be worn in very different ways, to make the interesting.

    looks messy too me… pants are either too big, or just not high enough up at the waist. the shirt looks messy, though i like the uncommoness of the last button being buttoned.

    It is interesting to look at the old sartorialist photos. The fashion of standing pigeon stance was big back then but not anymore so much.
