    He should try a little nonchalance. The pants could be fine, but he makes a too great buzz about his attire. I wouldn’t find the scarf very advisory. In order to match up his youthful face, I would wear my things in a more masculine way. I think this outfit doesn’t really do any good for him. All the single pieces are fine, however.

    I love the look especially the scarf and how he layered the jacket with a cardigan. I am just not sure about the width of the pants…

    I like the vest – a very elegant look down to the handkerchief in his jacket pocket. and yet it looks as though he was dressed in a hurry.

    Outfit is great, but photo itself is also terrific. You played the bright light beautifully, to very pleasing effect on his hair. Lighting is very even on his face. Composition is top notch, with the soft green on one side and the brick on the other. You and I know that these photos don’t just happen randomly. Congrats!

    I love these spring flannels! The gentleman has a kind of 70s thing going on with his closely cut jacket and open neck shirt. The scarf brings it up to date but i would leave off the cardigan, or if he is cold unbutton it so we can’t see it. Can’t help thinking his wonderful long legs enhances the look. Nice find, Sart.

    Ooh! Love the scarf tucked in, and the cardi under the blazer, and the turn-ups… since reading more ‘style’ blogs I’ve certainly become a lot more focussed on the details, but they really do make outfits!

    I think anything would work with those legs, what’s the male equivalent of va-va-vooom? I wore a cardigan with the lowest button undone around W Palm Beach and no fewer than 3 people tried to button me up!!! Like the outfit, love the shoes! Jorge from W Palm Beach

    I love the way he has tucked his scarf down into his shirt, and the green vest makes the whole outfit! I also like the fold on the end of the legs of his pants. Beautiful!

    He looks so good! Just everything goes so well together!

    I like the way there’s a band of white just peeping out of his blazer pocket, his pairing his blazer with a cardigan when I thought cardigans were things only much younger people could get away with, and the way his trousers fit him just perfectly!

    the pants are perfectly modern and the three pieces on top fit like a dream. any old-fogey layering man knows that a poor fit in any of the three will be hell for you all day long.
    It’s probably ridiculous but I feel I’m copping out if I tie my scarf that simple way. I feel a jaunty ascot would be better suited to this sunny day dream.
    all in all, an almost perfect puzzle.

    What’s with anon 6.38 – “I would wear my things in a more masculine way. I think this outfit doesn’t really do any good for him.”

    I so completely disagree. I think he looks devastating – the guy’s a knock out and this kind of structured clothing can be V sexy. It must have taken some planning to get everything just so, but it doesn’t really look over the top and structured. Wearing a scarf is not unmasculine, for petes sake!

    Great silhouette. The colours are really something too. It looks to me as though his shirt and cardigan may be a hair too small though, as both seem to be pulling at the buttons.

    My academic counselor once asked me why i wore a light, spring scarf layered beneath my shirt like this gentlemen wore it. I told her it was bit nippy outside, but overall not to cold. She didn’t get it and reduced me to some slave to style. Seeing this pic shows how conventional a very light linen scarf can be when you are transitioning seasons! I just forwarded her the link and I loved how you provided some concise words on the feasibility of such a look in a season like spring. great spread on GQ btw!

    i agree with anonymus 9.26, it´s either the scarf or the cardigan, both together are too much…

    The most striking thing is this outfit is clearly thought out and well executed and clean — something many men are much to “masculine” to be willing to do. I love it for that alone! Then you add the fact he looks wonderful and classy — he’s charming. Anyone who went out with him would feel obligated to be sure and dress well. That’s a good effect to have on people. “Ridding the world of one slob at a time,” should be his mission statement.

    I love what YSL has done for their men’s collection this season. It’s so wonderfully great, and this man’s silhouette draws connections to it, amongst others! I’m kinda over the way he’s wearing his scarf though. He somehow looks kinda safe, with not enough personality or creativity showing through.

    The jacket has an unusual cut. Notice how the bottom front corners are squared instead of rounded? It makes me wonder if the jacket is custom made.
    I like the fit and the look of everything (particularly the sweater; great choice there) except the scarf. I think that if a man wants to wear something around his neck, and to have it tucked inside his shirt, then he’s best off going with an ascot. I think the scarf looks too feminine.

    These pants: the essence of refinement. They are only meant for maybe 4-5 weeks’ wear each year. In a week they’ll be too heavy, and the colour isn’t right when the temperature dips again, in fall. But when the sun is shining, the air’s cool and lilacs bloom- perfect.

    Winter has ended and we are not yet saved from this particular way of tying a scarf. His outfit is so tightly constructed that a bit of dash would go a long way- let the scarf fly! make it bright! give it a jaunty knot at the throat! leave the cardigan at home!

    That being said, he looks like he’s enjoying himself, which is doubtlessly worth more than a flawless outfit…

    Hmmm…..
    This scarf is too long –he’s got it tucked into his shirt. Also, I think for the warm weather, I’d even forgo an ascot and opt for some fun accessories –like a tank watch, and maybe a few strands of really cool wooden or stone beaded bracelets. (Yes, I like men who wear bracelets).

    Other than that… really nice. Great haircut, great pants, nice carriage.

    Just to knit pick (nit pic?) I would make the shoes a bit more casual to tone it down a notch and make it less perfect, but really, it’s not at all a big deal. He rocks it righteously.

    Spectacular. Its so nice to see a number of pieces work so well together. After years of one or two feature accessories. To find a perfectly crafted outfit is joyous. I admit I was a little doubtful of the size of cuff at first but the length of his leg can totally handle is. Brilliant for tapping into the ’30s, ’70s, old school Hollywood all while being effortlessly current. Love it!

    I find the colors a little more fall than spring here, but everything works so well here, it’d be difficult to change any one piece. Maybe a slash of color with a ribbon belt? A newsboy cap or straw hat worn at a jaunty angle would finish this look off with the risk of alluding to the past.
