I love the fact there is a story behind this image, and it’s evident; there is a narrative that is left for you to build and work forward to. This look isn’t polished, nor is overly dishevelled, however it’s real, as opposed to perfectly pampered faces we are used to seeing through these current weeks in fashion. It isn’t perfect, yet in an odd perspective, it is…

There is a lot of style going on here. Interesting. I would ask him: What’s on your agenda for the day?

A man from no past. All is well tied in him: belt and suspenders.

great pic love the shirt and attitude… composition and framing are superb…

Couldn’t write it better than that.
This man is a cool cat. I hope the sense that he is unconcerned with the lah-de-dah in life in life is correct.
Should add: looks handsome, too!
September 25, 2011 at 4:12 pm
there should be a Caution sign because this man could be dangerous, he’s certainly not a dead end
What a great picture!!! :)

Love combination of the denim shirt with the leather suspenders. However, too many accessories: the bandana, the cap, the sunglasses, the thick watch and the armbands. With a little bit more relief of skin this look will be perfect!
September 25, 2011 at 4:31 pm
Great Outfit! but i like all the accessories he got! they all fit perfect on his look! and love love the belt!
wear a smile!
I like the golden buttons on his pocket and that little red scarf is a nice touch to his outfit. cool guy.

i just love hes outfit! he lookes so chilled. and the colores in the picture are amazing! lovelovelove
September 25, 2011 at 5:01 pm
Cool; the only difference between this and the 60′s was that instead of hair, he has a belt.
September 25, 2011 at 5:03 pm
Lose the belt! Suspenders with a belt cross the line from useful aestheticism to aesthetic silliness. Love the rest of it.
Love the denim shirt and his style.
September 25, 2011 at 5:04 pm
I like this outfit very much. I wear it myself quite often with other details and accessories but I understand his look exactly. It’s sturdy and refined at the same time. Beautiful sunglasses and watch.
Greetings from Amsterdam.
September 25, 2011 at 5:07 pm
I am rarely keen on denim total looks but the belt rocks!
September 25, 2011 at 5:11 pm
What a style, way to pull jeans shirt on jeans pants!
September 25, 2011 at 5:21 pm
I don’t know if this is about the attitude (fierce!) or the outfit (denim chic) but this gentleman looks stunning.
It may be all about the man behind the camera then?
Great sunglasses, horrible watch.
September 25, 2011 at 5:32 pm
Strong and cool.
September 25, 2011 at 5:40 pm
Great picture. Good to see that the Sartorialist is back in the streets with real people.
September 25, 2011 at 5:46 pm
I Spy a Kiel James Patrick Croffix belt! I own the same one and love it https://www.kieljamespatrick.com/belt.cfm?pRef=422&CFID=5417496&CFTOKEN=39299485
September 25, 2011 at 5:50 pm
The watch…Omg, what’s that watch?
September 25, 2011 at 5:55 pm
I love this look, but why? why? a belt AND suspenders?
September 25, 2011 at 6:08 pm
Very risk averse guy!
September 25, 2011 at 6:10 pm
Perfect bro! One the best stylist I know till date! Support frm UK my bro!
September 25, 2011 at 6:16 pm
September 25, 2011 at 6:24 pm
Suspenders and a belt? That kind of ruins the look for me.
September 25, 2011 at 6:38 pm
Love the photo and love how he is dressed! That mix of orange and blue complementary colors makes this even more striking.
September 25, 2011 at 6:50 pm
he looks kind of awesome at first. the shirt is beautiful and he’s super good looking. but so many accessories! belt + suspenders + bandana + bracelets + watch + sunglasses + hat. too much.
September 25, 2011 at 6:55 pm
Love this! Effortlessly cool!
September 25, 2011 at 7:12 pm
I love everything about this guy’s look!He looks comfortable in this stylish combination he is wearing. I like his sunglasses too and the gold buttons on a denim shirt!
September 25, 2011 at 7:23 pm
I really do like the shirt and the watch.. very interesting cool type of guy..
September 25, 2011 at 7:29 pm
Great look! But can you trust a man who wears both suspenders and a belt? He can’t even trust his own pants.
September 25, 2011 at 7:32 pm
I love this guy’s look. He looks confident! I love the splash of red and the golden buttons on his denim shirt.
September 25, 2011 at 7:57 pm
September 25, 2011 at 8:17 pm
Denim. It looks great on his skin.
September 25, 2011 at 9:11 pm
Suspenders and belt, I agree with Anora…I do not like eather.
September 25, 2011 at 9:35 pm
Chambray and denim is back! Staple look for Fall, if you ask me. And are those denim suspenders?
September 25, 2011 at 9:41 pm
I wonder, after reading the comments, whether the trick to looking this good is all in the details of the accessories. After all, an ordinary denim shirt, blue jeans, but then, add, add, add.
September 25, 2011 at 9:48 pm
The sunglasses look to be vintage Porsche Design. If they are, they’re classics.
September 25, 2011 at 9:49 pm
i love these details.
September 25, 2011 at 10:53 pm
waaay too much going on.
September 25, 2011 at 11:12 pm
That guy looks sooooo cool! I can’t find any words for his entire outfit! I like his accessories too, nothing like a guy who knows how to add a little umph to his outfit!.

I love his outfit against these signs!

The red bandana is the perfect touch… the color looks amazing on him.

A modern urban cowboy movie: Dead End.
September 26, 2011 at 1:33 am
I know …. rules are meant to be broken. But wearing suspenders AND a belt is like wearing a bowler AND a baseballcap. For me this leads nowhere. A dead end end indeed.
Could have kept it minimal!!
September 26, 2011 at 3:50 am
You gotta love it!
September 26, 2011 at 6:09 am
Nothing dead end about this guy! Love the gold buttons on the shirt …
September 26, 2011 at 6:29 am
“How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders? The man can’t even trust his own pants”
September 26, 2011 at 8:33 am
He’s so cool! I’d lose the glasses and that red thing though.
September 26, 2011 at 8:43 am
is that seal?
September 26, 2011 at 8:51 am
Agree-the belt is overkill and unnecessary. What’s the saying, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one thing.” Should have done so here. Otherwise, a great look.
September 26, 2011 at 9:35 am
Keino Benjamin is the only one that can pulled off suspenders with a belt. Depends on what type of belt and suspenders. He got the right Kiel James Patrick Croffix belt and Diesel denim suspenders and connected them great. Get with it guys. Creativity speak for itself !!!!!
September 26, 2011 at 9:45 am
Love the triple denim :)
September 26, 2011 at 11:06 am
Keino, I like this outfit. Solid look and great shot !!!
September 26, 2011 at 11:33 am
Over-accessorize. Reminds me of the recent GQ article on street fashion running amok.

Dead end! lol Brilliant!

Such a cool look…!
September 26, 2011 at 11:52 am
lots of style packed into a few well chosen elements.
September 26, 2011 at 12:01 pm
This guy’s wrists are stacked: check out my designs on Etsy:
September 26, 2011 at 12:52 pm
love everything about this including the suspenders and belt together.
September 26, 2011 at 2:42 pm
Now that’s how you do denim on denim… No one could question a man of style that looks this good!!! Love every detail! Xo
September 26, 2011 at 3:50 pm
classic cool, somehow a late sixties jazz vibe. …and against the blue against the ‘danger orange?’ love it.
September 26, 2011 at 5:18 pm
Each item which he has chosen to augment his denim ensemble speaks volumes.
September 26, 2011 at 8:20 pm
Anyone know how to tie a bandanna like that? He is exuding style and confidence.
September 26, 2011 at 9:28 pm
Oh man. He looks like he came from a different time.
September 27, 2011 at 10:54 am
oh gosh. enough with the championing of fashion dogma! so he’s wearing a belt and suspenders – and pulling it off better than somebody in an ironed everything with a matching everything and a shiny everything. you think he doesn’t know that rule? didn’t look it square in the face before blowing it to smithereens?
HE. LOOKS. AWESOME.
September 27, 2011 at 11:14 am
@henri. No, he is not Seal, he is Keino Benjamin – a NYC stylist.
No one can do denim on denim quite like him. Cool guy.
September 27, 2011 at 12:53 pm
Thought belt AND suspenders were a no-no. Other than that, great outfit!
September 27, 2011 at 3:58 pm
September 27, 2011 at 8:03 pm
Great picture! Spent a long time just taking it in.
September 28, 2011 at 12:46 am
denim head to toe,,brave :D
September 28, 2011 at 7:38 am
Sunglasses are Prosche Design. Could be vintage but new stock looks exactly same. Classic
September 29, 2011 at 5:26 am
September 29, 2011 at 5:58 am
the suspender and the watch does all the magic here .
September 29, 2011 at 3:05 pm
Great shot, as always Scott. The guy in the picture is Keino Benjamin. Really cool guy – got to grab a couple of pics of him in NY during (capsule)
October 3, 2011 at 1:21 am
Cool look, but never trust a man who wear a belt & braces at the same time. The belt is great, loose the braces.
October 5, 2011 at 10:33 am
clip on braces? really? and with a belt? Leave the silly braces at home, and this becomes a good look.
October 10, 2011 at 2:49 pm
this guy has obvious style…hmm, make this two outfits, lose the suspenders keep the belt one day…lose the belt keep suspenders on the other… thumbs up
October 13, 2011 at 2:34 am
Great look, however why belt and braces, does one not negate the other??
December 28, 2011 at 6:52 pm
Isn’t it wrobg to wear suspender and belt same time?
Taste for Waste

So funky. I bet this guy has some very interesting ideas.

I have seen this guy a plenty on here. Always a treat.
