I wonder how he doesn't sweat with all this clothes on?..But looks nice.

i do like the mix between casual and sports. but not too sure about the look. theres something not right here.
May 31, 2010 at 9:08 am
Love the look, but what about shoes for this?
May 31, 2010 at 9:10 am
Extreme casual smart: a very stylish gentlemen. His sunglasses, I love :)
May 31, 2010 at 9:11 am
combining things and getting unique results is something that I favor a lot but, these things should be conceptually relevant. In my opinion a tailored jacket and combat shorts are one of the worst combination a man can wear :( sorry for that but I find them very unharmonious. anyways, I love your blog and it inspires me all the time.
May 31, 2010 at 9:15 am
Really love it! Like the mix of chic and sports!I will be in Florence too !
Perfection – right mix of casual and chic. The hand in the pocket just completes the outfit.http://www.thedailyterrier.blogspot.com

hmmm… definitely not too crazy about this combo. very traditional blazer worn with very traditional blue shirt…. untucked and paired with army cargo shorts? what's he wearing on his feet? if my husband tried to leave the house like this i'd ask him if he was half asleep? looks totally confused… going to the park or to an office? straight chino shorts (no pockets/no camo) would have been better in my books… this looks slightly confused. xx
May 31, 2010 at 9:31 am
You know … waist up? the look is great. Waist down? the look is great.
But taken together? Sorry, but it just looks lame.
I like it a lot! :) as usual, what impress me the most is a good mixture of hihg end- tailored – expensive with nonchalant, underground, cheap.He looks great to me
May 31, 2010 at 9:33 am
I really can't decide if I like this or not. I like the idea of it, but don't think the finished result quite works. Perhaps if the shorts weren't so casual.

Loving the young summer freash buisness man look!

May 31, 2010 at 10:06 am
interesting and not for anyone:)
May 31, 2010 at 10:07 am
I really like the concept, but perhaps with another type of shorts besides army cargo shorts. Something a little more classic perhaps. I think the look could also translate well for women — a nice fitted blazer with some tasteful shorts.
May 31, 2010 at 10:20 am
when does camo ever look good? even on a chic guy like this, it still looks ridiculous. i get the idea of the look and like it, but the execution is lacking.
May 31, 2010 at 10:25 am
I like it very much!!!!!!KissClaudiahttp://audreyismyfavorite.blogspot.com/

I think it depends on what the shorts look like but it sounds alright i guess :D

Sounds great! Please share it, can't wait to read ;D
May 31, 2010 at 10:44 am
great style. it
May 31, 2010 at 10:52 am
the idea is great – chic, great for hot weather, but i think this particular look is just wrong. the shorts are simply hideous, not matching the jacket and combined with this shirt making the man's legs look extremely short. you should definitely try this idea though. camel and military shorts would be great.
May 31, 2010 at 11:16 am
It's kinda cool, but I'm not totally convinced. Oh dear, am I turning old-fashion(ed)?
May 31, 2010 at 11:42 am
Interesting combi with the tailored jacket and camo shorts.
May 31, 2010 at 11:50 am
this is actually a very good idea. love the sporty/formal feel. he surely knows how to impress!!

I like the green and navy mix a lot!
May 31, 2010 at 12:53 pm
this is the first time i will ever say this but, I don't like it! i don't like it at all. the shorts are just horrible and don't go well with the outfit at all. it's like half of his body is formal and the bottom is hillbilly truck driving.
i'm sorry, scott.
May 31, 2010 at 12:56 pm
Sexy, I'd say ;)
May 31, 2010 at 1:07 pm
Love the juxstaposition of the shirt/jacket with those shorts!
May 31, 2010 at 1:09 pm
This man is super-fine.
May 31, 2010 at 1:10 pm
Uh, I'm not convinced either. What's wrong with a pair of casual pants in a cool linen?
May 31, 2010 at 1:24 pm
This is a hot look, it's very Hip-Hop mogul late 20th century. Those guys had an ear to the street and the boardroom. the mix of two different evnirons really gives such good fashion.
May 31, 2010 at 1:47 pm
I don't like it. Seems like something men of a certain age would do to convince themselves they're still young and hip.
May 31, 2010 at 1:57 pm
Tailored nonchalance gone awry….
I want to see his shoes… http://letsgototiffany.blogspot.com/
May 31, 2010 at 2:04 pm
I like the idea, but I think that military shorts aren't the best choice with nice shirt, jacket and golden sunglasses. I believe that he had some reason to put them on ;)
May 31, 2010 at 2:21 pm
I like this, though agree it could be executed even better. And I also wonder, as a previous commenter did: what shoes?
May 31, 2010 at 2:24 pm
I like the idea but no on him.
May 31, 2010 at 2:28 pm
I love that style and I know Piombo, sometimes I can find particular scarfes!

Stylish man! wow! Great photo!

May 31, 2010 at 3:17 pm
The idea is nice but it doesn't work for him…
Why untuck the shirt?And why the army cargo shorts?
I think he would have looked much better if he had more elegant shorts with a belt and the shirt tucked in.
May 31, 2010 at 3:22 pm
This combination is drawing some of the most ambivalent responses I've seen. The jacket is terrific and it suits you.
The problem is the shorts. Rather than an interesting juxtaposition, this one's not working. Perhaps it's the camo-cargo thing — which I've been sick of for the last 2 years.
There must be other super-casual options worth a try.
May 31, 2010 at 3:43 pm
From my own reactiona nd the comments above, you cant put just anything together and have it look good. Sometimes it looks odd and trying-too-hard.
May 31, 2010 at 3:47 pm
i guess it

It's kinda strange, but i find this outfit great! But we easily guess that this man is not walking down a street in Paris! I haven't seen someone like him in Paris! When will we see a lot of cool looks like this one in Paris? I can't wait: it would be so great!
May 31, 2010 at 4:55 pm
I frequently pair jackets with shorts, but I am vehemently against camouflage unless you're in the military.
May 31, 2010 at 5:01 pm
I dont like this combination of outfit.It is already quite dated…sorry but this is more than a fashion faux-pas I would say.
May 31, 2010 at 5:10 pm
This is actually one of very few of your posts that I can truly say that I thoroughly hate. Love the shirt, nice jacket, but I think the sunglasses are a little tacky and the shorts just look dumb. I do, however, agree that the concept is interesting and would be a nice summer look/feel…and I imagine the Sartorialist could do it much better!
May 31, 2010 at 5:20 pm
I think it
May 31, 2010 at 5:28 pm
the atmospheric clash is even bigger than the formal one. To me it`s difficult to get the story that is told, the personality that is expressed or the mood this man may be in. I am missing the dialog and the communication that fashion is about.
May 31, 2010 at 5:46 pm
Really tough to pull that look off, but he does it very well. I think it looks awesome.
May 31, 2010 at 6:06 pm
I don't know. If this outfit were a hairstyle, it would be a mullet. Business on top, party on the bottom. I'm not sure it really works. Like the idea of mismatching styles, but this just seems to miss, in my opinion.
May 31, 2010 at 6:22 pm
What an endearing juxtaposition of styles; work hard, play hard ey?!http://a-to-zeina.blogspot.com/
May 31, 2010 at 6:55 pm
no. sorry. wrong.

Abercrombie meets Michael Bastian… not too bad… he carries with confidence
May 31, 2010 at 7:07 pm
I love the jacket and the untucked shirt; the shorts jar which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I think it may be a pattern break too far. I applaud him for trying though, and don't believe there is such a thing as trying too hard.
Is there such a thing as a 'perfect scenario' in and of itself?
May 31, 2010 at 7:09 pm
LOVE the shorts with the outfit!!
May 31, 2010 at 7:11 pm
this look works on so many levels allowing men to play with conceived traditional male looks. Not too disimilar from the previous post. they only thing that is truly missing it what sart mentionned in his dialogue re his Piombo purchase. The blazer needs to be more fitted and slimmer sleeve. This is a male version of the Balmain look.
Victoria and Danni
this definitely puts a new definition to the term casual chic!!
check out my blog.
I'm not too sure about the style, but I do love all your portraits! What type of equiptment are you using?
May 31, 2010 at 7:20 pm
business up top – casual on the bottom. pretty cool.
May 31, 2010 at 7:32 pm
Ohhhh, Scott! This look is very LA/Orange County California. Very surfer-goes-to-work. I love it, but perhaps because I grew up around it? I think you could pull if off nicely if you stick to the casual undertones this look has going for it.
May 31, 2010 at 7:51 pm
an Italian J Crew sounds correct! if only i could get my boyfriend to dress like that ; )
May 31, 2010 at 8:24 pm

love it, i bet this guy is a news reader for television, i'd love to see what he is wearing on his feet, flip flops i hope! x
May 31, 2010 at 8:36 pm
Wow- hilarious that the Sartorialist savvy readers miss the point on this combo- why are girls allowed to create unique outfits mixing styles and men get slammed for being creative and confident. I think it is brilliant and obviously ahead of the times. Well spotted

May 31, 2010 at 9:21 pm
The contrast looks cool, but I think another color would look better for those shorts.
May 31, 2010 at 9:26 pm
Hell to the yeah!! It's all about his face. It reads complete confidence, and therefor works!
May 31, 2010 at 9:58 pm
some things are better left untouched, and this is one of them (maybe he could wear another colour bottom?). i do wonder whether people on this actually do like it, or just agree with anything that gets posted up.
May 31, 2010 at 10:06 pm
No, it looks sloppy. Shorts are too casual, shirt untucked. This person is obviously someone with a great wardrobe and is well groomed, not scruffy enough to pull off this look. Sub in white jeans, or even regular, worn, jeans, for these shorts.
May 31, 2010 at 10:08 pm
For one of the first time since I've been following your blog, it has made me laugh out loud! I totally did not expect the reactions that I kept scrolling through just now! My goodness Mr. Schuman…you put yourself out there and got your proverbial wrist slapped. Yikes.Post photos PLEASE when you get the look you want. (For the record, I'm not keen on the combo either. You've got a better take on style than this.)
May 31, 2010 at 10:59 pm
The green camouflage shorts with blue button shirt,navy jacket give this serious-looking-man-with-shaven-head a boyish look that the eternal girl within me likes. Boys who dress themselves wear interesting combinations like this.
June 1, 2010 at 1:10 am
the shorts don't match the blazer and button up…but i love it! he works it!
OMG–>I'm in love!!!
June 1, 2010 at 1:43 am
The good look of this pic is more about the man pulling it off than the clothing combo. He makes it work. Unfortunately, I don't think its great. A schlubby friend of mine does stuff like this, and more because an AE mannequin circa 2005 told him to rather than because he is legit interested in his style.
June 1, 2010 at 1:49 am
I feel like this look is sloppy. It's like there's a disconnect between the upper half and the lower half. Perhaps it's the camo. Perhaps it's just me.
I love the look of shorts with a tailored jacket, but when I imagine it in my head the fabrics are cottony and light, in whites and sky blues. The shorts are cut above the knee and the sleeves are rolled up. And he's wearing loafers. And a mean tan.
June 1, 2010 at 3:16 am
I love it, he looks great, and I m missing this kind of dresses over Budapest/Hungary/ :-)Have a great day!
June 1, 2010 at 3:23 am
Awesome idea loving the look 100%
June 1, 2010 at 4:27 am
I this guy has a great look! Maybe he purposefully set out to achieve it but it still somehow looks effortless. Very European and VERY Italian :)
June 1, 2010 at 6:19 am
by the way, he's my type:p
June 1, 2010 at 7:21 am
I was asking about the shoes for this and someone mentioned flip-flops. Those would be my first choice as I always do cargo shorts and casual shirt with them. However, the jacket makes me wonder if they would work…
June 1, 2010 at 7:28 am
this half pants will be new trend.
June 1, 2010 at 7:31 am
I think this is very handsome. I'm into the "not quite right" element. I'm curious about the type of shoes worn here.
June 1, 2010 at 8:04 am
I like the juxtaposition that's going on with the top and the bottom, but the shorts are justa little toooo casual for the cut of that jacket. More photos of Florence please: I'm longing to be there right now! :-)Ciao, LB x x
June 1, 2010 at 8:07 am
Good idea but not so sure it looks that good.
June 1, 2010 at 8:30 am
The very idea is good but I don't look these specific shorts, it sounds child-like. Have you seen the last campaign of The Kooples, Scott? Tailored jacket + slim shirt + shorts is a very good equation indeed
June 1, 2010 at 9:09 am
Interesting look, it gets so hot here in Madrid in summer this could be an option for those "half-dressed-up" days!
June 1, 2010 at 9:21 am
very chic.tailored jacket + cargo shorts!
and yes.. looks very J.Crew.
June 1, 2010 at 11:27 am
I love it! His attitude makes it work:)
June 1, 2010 at 11:39 am
the upper part is immaculate, the bottom, err, sorry i'm not feeling it. one must be really confident to rock this outfit. i must sat his stance made up for it.
June 1, 2010 at 12:25 pm
I like the idea, but I'm not a fan of the camo. Or the cargo shorts look at all really, but I can deal with that if the shorts are a better color/pattern.
June 1, 2010 at 12:36 pm
Very kool. On any other person, it might not look this good..
June 1, 2010 at 12:37 pm
I think that shorts make you even shorter:/ but in his case looks very nice!he is tall and masculine type..love it!
June 1, 2010 at 12:45 pm
I love the top half. Really don't understand the choice of shorts though. Surely, he needs some more tailored shorts? however, perfect glasses for his face.
June 1, 2010 at 1:18 pm
I have never seen the military style in a man looking so elegant! Nice picture
June 1, 2010 at 1:31 pm
maybe it's the way the picture was taken, but i don't like the look of this.
June 1, 2010 at 1:46 pm
With the right pair of shorts, this could work. But with camo-baggy-cargos? Not so much
June 1, 2010 at 2:45 pm
It made me GASP (as most of your pics do)…in a GREAT way. Great fashion is bravery squared.
June 1, 2010 at 2:46 pm
He owns the look and that is why it works for me. The right amount of confidence can make magic.
June 1, 2010 at 3:07 pm
Great pic, but not to sure about the outfit. Looks like he got mugged for his pants, the thief made off with his good ones, homey got stuck with the short ends. Camo at that.
I mean what was linen invented for anyway?
June 1, 2010 at 3:54 pm
the juxtaposition is unmatched. if he's wearing white gym socks with loafers, i will marry.
June 1, 2010 at 4:01 pm
No thank you.
June 1, 2010 at 4:22 pm
i like the mix between sporty and buisness clothes !!!But i don't like the sunglasses.
June 1, 2010 at 4:34 pm
Camo shorts are never a good choice.
June 1, 2010 at 4:59 pm
I love how unexpected this outfit is. I love the contrast between the shorts and the blazer.
June 1, 2010 at 5:11 pm
I can see where he's going, but he just doesn't quite make it. Love his sunglasses. The blue, high waisted jacket buttoned once is superb and looks good against his skin tone. The untucked oxford is well-played. But the shorts? The silly patch? Maybe he's trying just a bit too hard. I'm just dying to see his shoes…
June 1, 2010 at 6:12 pm
No, no, nooooooooooo!!
And even if you are going to wear this – don't button your blazer!!

Amazing jacket, nice shirt….can someone tell me if it's a Boglioli jacket?Great glasses too. But these cameo shorts with a logo embroided….come on….bad bad bad!!
June 1, 2010 at 7:34 pm
I think the jacket could be less dark more rumpled and it would work. or the shorts could be more tailored less cargo.
June 1, 2010 at 7:56 pm
You cannot even put camo cargo shorts in the same category as a "super chic version of J. Crew." There is nothing chic about cargo shorts and the only thing simular to J. Crew is the top half of the outfit.
June 1, 2010 at 8:30 pm
looks like he's trying for Bermuda 'business wear'…but missed the mark: http://xrl.in/5i4j

Hmm, trying to determine if I like this look. It screams…"look at me, I want to be looked at", to me.

Maybe if you exude enough confidence like this man in the photo…….still thinking.DanaThe Beso TeamBeso.com

June 2, 2010 at 4:57 am
I'd like to go to Pitti Uomo too, Florence is so beautiful this season. Lucky you!About this look: the first time I looked at it I thought "what??". Now I'm learning to appreciate it, maybe also because of his undeniable confidence!
June 2, 2010 at 6:15 am
Yeah I love this look! It's something a bit different which I always like. The italians can get away with anything…fashion speaking!
June 2, 2010 at 7:11 am
Yeah, not feeling it either. I tried to appreciate the look but it's just too… gross.
Love the top half – the look of this un-constructed blazer is perfect. Have to get a few of these. Keep on doing your thing!
June 2, 2010 at 8:20 am
Is Pitti Uomo coming back already? How time flies by! Very nice picture, though. I am considering making shorts out of one of my pair of trousers, in order to have a suit with matching shorts like an American in Cuba.
June 2, 2010 at 10:28 am
camo should not be worn unless you're in the military. period.
a sports coat with shorts looks great if you pair it with the right pair of shorts though.
i say explore away.
June 2, 2010 at 12:23 pm
I think that look would be better with maybe something like a linen short. Cargo pants/shorts just make me angry that men don't have hips and get better pockets than women do …
Otherwise, why suffer the heat?
June 2, 2010 at 12:25 pm
I love his confidence. It's what makes the outfit work
June 2, 2010 at 1:04 pm
I don't like it either. Not a good mix.
June 2, 2010 at 2:33 pm
Love the idea, but maybe the camo and the patch on the shorts is a bit much. I think it would work better with a solid sportier short like this: http://atticusshop.com/product/relwen-fatigue-cut-off-short.html

I love it! He has the best style, definitely
June 3, 2010 at 3:09 am
Great concept and I can see how it could look really fantastic, but in the picture the blocks of colors are too stark for the already liberal take on mixing formal and casual. I would really love to see a guy in this look.
June 4, 2010 at 6:46 pm
i actually like this, and i will wear it with pride. it reminds of when little boys wear their cowboy boots with some funky shorts and some type of t shirt
June 4, 2010 at 8:01 pm
I like the IDEA. I love when people combine two styles that wouldn't make sense. But I don't like the man. I don't know what it is, but I feel like this look could be pulled off by a number of people. Just not this guy.
June 4, 2010 at 9:48 pm
This doesn't even look mismatched to me –more like he forgot to put the rest of either the top half or bottom half on.–sorry–the concept is great but I feel a tailored casual short in khaki would have been what was needed.
June 4, 2010 at 10:00 pm
Could be good but shorts need to be better. Ditch the pockets.
June 5, 2010 at 12:42 pm
Very sharp – I love it!
June 5, 2010 at 3:48 pm
He moves with such grace – love him!
June 8, 2010 at 3:41 am
Think he's working it better than should be got away with – puts me in mind of the quote by Cyril Connolly on Vita Sackville-West – "She looked like Lady Chatterley above the waist and the gamekeeper below."

Sportier? Really? It's not like the guys going to play volley ball in that later. How about business casual up top and Nick Lachey on the bottom? No, just me?!

Adore it. Looks like something my husband would dream up, which is of course why I married him.
