    Isn’t he the guy below in the snow, ‘Mr. Bastian’? Can someone tell me who he is? Obviously he’s somebody in fashion industry?

    The socks bother me. Are they crimpled deliberately or accidentally? Anyway, it must feel disturbing when your socks roll down. I suppose that´s why he is standing like that.

    Some people’s commitment to fashion is almost moving.

    Like the “kilties” on the shoes–the whole look, in fact.

    I love the peekaboo of the red socks!

    By the way, to answer the question in the third comment…. it’s Jefferson Hack. He’s a magazine editor and the father of Kate Moss’s baby. Sorry if hundreds of people have responded to this question by the time this comment is posted.

    To anon 8:14, if you’ve gotten the answer already apologies, but he is not Michael Bastian. Michael Bastian is a freaking fantastic designer, this dude is Jefferson Hack and he’s done too much to get into on this blog. Loving the coat.

    i really enjoy this outfit as well. It reminds me of an out Frita Giannini would put together. The red socks really are the perfect addition to the outfit. I love wearing black, then making the entire outfit more vibrant with a simple splash of red, or aqua blue. there is great detail on that jacket as well. I like how the pockets from afar are asymetrical.

    the coat is so good. words cannot describe how much i enjoy the patchwork-ness of the plaid.
    also, lots of love for the black skinny pants rolled up just to show off the socks.

    No, that’s Jefferson Hack, you know… Dazed and Confused magazine?

    Not sure who Bastian is, but I love this shot of Jeff. He looks so happy and sure of himself. That’s the most important bit of style, to me.

    Now there’s a man with joie de vivre! I love the entire outfit, but the splash of red from the socks, and the fringe on his shoes really make it something special. And I love that he looks ready to take on the world with a smile.

    Never understood what Kate Moss saw in him before this picture. Great jacket, and he looks like a really fun guy.

    Why is it that this guy looks fun and great, and the pic above him just looks dumb? It’s the smile of course. This guy looks like he enjoys his style, while the woman above just looks like she wants you to think how cool she is. He seems to understand that they’re only clothes, folks.

    Is that a toothpick– the worst of accessories– or a glint of light on his lip? I fear the former.

    I have known Jefferson for quite some time and had met for coffee earlier; the toothpick is his trademark; btw he was wearing a bright red velour T shirt under the jacket.

    That is the best plaid I’ve ever seen on a jacket. The red socks aren’t bad, either.

    What great clothes!
    What an ok outfit.

    The coat, sure, is a great piece. Plaid is everywhere, the peacoat is everywhere. Gray is everywhere. Put it together, patchwork, that’s somewhat clever, and it does fit well.

    Paring it with the skinny black jeans and otherwise achromatic outfit is nice enough, tones down the jacket. The Killtie flap shoes are great, sure. I am also very fond of rolled pants short. However, putting all of this tweak together (clearly trendy jacket, quite tight jeans, killties) starts to make me suspicious, then my fears are confirmed with the socks.

    The red is such a trope, it is neither cleverly whimsical here, nor effortlessly stylish. It seems like such a transparent effort at even more whimsy and attention grabbing that it bothers me.

    Granted, I love surprising socks. But if you are going to where them for interest, it seems better when the rest of the outfit is more restrained. Also, red is such a default color choice among those looking for bright socks. If the socks in the picture were an English sort of magenta, perhaps I’d be more convinced.

    Mitchell (11.59am), I think you’ll find it more flattering if one “exudes” (= to display) rather than “exhumes” (= to dig out, particularly in reference to corpses) confidence.
    And the coat is very charming.
