    Very chic, but the boots are just too big.

    The boots rock.

    Love the top half of the outfit and the bottom half (those are some kick-ass boots), but not sure if I like the two halves together.

    Did I mention that those boots are awesome?

    Excellent background/lighting in this shot too.

    The jacket is exquisite; the cut, that wonderful collar, the sleeves. Don’t particularly care for the boots, they remind me a little of swashbuckling pirate boots, too much space between the calf and the top of the boot.

    Love the look, but your arms can get so cold….!!! I’m a huge fan of sweater sleeves – as a 6’2″ tall girl with long arms, they have become a must with ALL my jackets.

    Is that a skirt or shorts that she’s wearing? The break in the line between the skirt/shorts hem and the top of her boots makes her look as though she’s wearing clothes one size too big for her. (Nice legs and coat, though.)

    not a fan of slouchy boots but these work very well.

    -sad to hear you’re in Milan at the end of this week. I’m traveling to your great city and secretly hoped I could find “The Man” in action while I was shopping about town.

    absolutely love this site. It’s on my top 3 everyday to visit.

    that’s a great coat… i personally love 3/4 length, it give a perfect excuse to wear opera gloves if it gets too cold.

    Elbow length gloves in a contrasting color would pull this outfit together.

    Ahhhh Milan! Enjoy. Now that is a city of fashion, and intrigue. I loved it there, and would have stayed if I could have!

    As I have just been turned on to your site also, I must agree of it’s addictiveness!

    Oh yeah, and btw, I love this girls ensemble, and the boots do ROCK!

    I adore the coat. It looks well made, and the cut’s unique. I love how the outfit’s colors remain low-key and she let’s the shapes do the talking – a slight flare here, streamlined along the legs then slouchy boots. Very chic.

    I think this is a great look and she would have turned my head had I passed her on the street.

    I’d like to see her with her hair down and blowing in the breeze; slightly less practical, yes, but more alluring.

    I with there were less frump to the button detail on her sleeves. Why buttons at all?

    Perhaps a bracelet to go with that bracelet sleeve? And where is her bag? But then I love that she is not carrying a bag.

    And I’m so glad she is not wearing black sunglasses.

    A dashing outfit indeed, perfect for an urban pirate, and the best thing about it is her impish smile!

    sart, I’d love to see you take your show on the road – beyond the major style capitals. i’d love to see resort street style! country street style! how personal style can be manifested in places where that can be more challenging. – for those of us who aren’t living our lives in the big city.

    A great mix. Love the gold buttons on the jacket, gives a slight nautical theme. I LOVE the boots – beautiful, plus the way they sit suggests her legs are very shapely too!!

    I love that look (even the boots, which everyone seems to hate!) but I could never get away with it. Short sleeved coats look dumb on me.

    No problem with the boots – worn with jeans or a shorter dress or skirt. It’s the shorts that are just killing me. Baggy in a way that looks stretched-out and poorly made, as opposed to deliberate. Poorly hemmed. The exact wrong length and shape.

    I realize this post is about the coat – which is lovely. But those shorts!

    Of course, I come to this as a person who thinks that shorts are a cruel joke played on the average american woman every summer, and I’m particularly pissed about seeing them pop up as a fall-spring concept, as we see here.

    @ RS:

    On mornings when I’m feeling crappy and tempted to put on a pair of black pants, an old sweater and beat-up ballet flats, I remind myself that the Sartorialist might be out shooting that day, and it’s better to look your best ;)

    Love the coat, thanks for all the inspiration!

    Her boots are fabulous. Just b/c it’s rainy you don’t have to resort to English wellies.

    That’s a beautiful, comfortable coat and those are chic boots. however, the oversized shorts skew the proportions beyond what’s beautiful. Her sunny attitude saves the look though.
