Oh, I love this look
January 24, 2007 at 12:24 pm
Love the buttoned-up look. Cool.
January 24, 2007 at 12:26 pm
Another air-tie (which is a bad look, BTW.)
But I am intrigued by his collar!
January 24, 2007 at 12:37 pm
i’ve been searching for this coat for ages…
I envy this good looking man!!
January 24, 2007 at 12:39 pm
i read in the new yorker that raf simons also wears his button down shirts all the way up sans neck tie. nice.
January 24, 2007 at 12:41 pm
January 24, 2007 at 1:26 pm
The coat’s cut is nice, but overall I find this almost anonymous…
January 24, 2007 at 1:28 pm
…handsome X 10. And his clothes don’t wear him.
January 24, 2007 at 1:40 pm
mr boateng is perfection. I totally love this look
January 24, 2007 at 1:55 pm
very nice indeed!

now here is the dream…oswald boateng my crush!! again he looks so charming. to be in your shoes! there is something so captivating about british and italian style and tailoring.
January 24, 2007 at 2:21 pm
I love him. Could he be more stylish? I wish he did clothes for women, I know they would make me infinitely more polished.
January 24, 2007 at 2:33 pm
This man is pure sex.
January 24, 2007 at 2:47 pm
I love his look always very clean, well dressed and beautiful combinations of colors, he makes beautiful suits right?!
January 24, 2007 at 2:57 pm
Oswald is such a beautiful creature. His style is so effortless and chic. I love the air-tie look, it’s hauntingly divine!
January 24, 2007 at 3:09 pm
I LOVE this ‘air-tie’ – I initially thought he was wearing a tie and was tickled to find out it was just a trick of the eye.
January 24, 2007 at 3:20 pm
January 24, 2007 at 3:33 pm
This is the fahion designer boateng i luv luv his style
January 24, 2007 at 3:36 pm
Love a man in a raincoat.
January 24, 2007 at 3:40 pm
Is that actually him? Why in the world does he always look so different every single time he’s shot?
As to the look, I like the peek of color from the jacket lining.
January 24, 2007 at 4:01 pm
Do you all know who this man is?!?He is the stuff dreams are made from, my dreams.
January 24, 2007 at 4:04 pm
Ozwald is a hot man who knows style. Ghanaians represent!
January 24, 2007 at 4:13 pm
Mr boateng is sublime as usual
January 24, 2007 at 4:27 pm
What is with the collar?
January 24, 2007 at 4:54 pm
i’m warming to the air tie. i’ve been doing it lately.
January 24, 2007 at 5:39 pm
I think he looks great; sophisticated but not trying to hard. I love the coat as well.
January 24, 2007 at 7:36 pm
i heard an interview with this guy on NPR… what a pompous a**hole!! i haven’t heard arrogance like that for a while. though he does admittedly look put-together.
January 24, 2007 at 7:37 pm
The style’s cool and quietly sophisticated. It works!
January 24, 2007 at 7:41 pm
great blue coat, and love how there is no need for a tie with his shirt
January 24, 2007 at 7:53 pm
love the look!simple, yet stylish!!
Wonderful. I love the blue trenchcoat over the black suit. The tieless look does not work for most people, but it does here.
January 24, 2007 at 9:48 pm
I admire Ozwald Boateng style. hee makes bold statement with his choice of colors. I wish we could get more exposure to his offerings in the States.
January 24, 2007 at 10:39 pm
Boateng is the man. That’s all that needs to be said.
January 24, 2007 at 11:17 pm
I think he spells his name with a “Z.”
January 25, 2007 at 3:00 am
very crisp look. I love it!
January 25, 2007 at 3:43 am
very actor studio
January 25, 2007 at 3:57 am
This is the most subdued I’ve ever seen Ozwald….impeccable nevertheless!!
January 25, 2007 at 4:37 am
This short trench is the one item I must buy this season!!!!
January 25, 2007 at 5:23 am
The look is so simple yet Mr Boateng makes it look so strong. Although I’d hate to have been the person to have made that shirt. I bet the collars were a nightmare to do!!
January 25, 2007 at 6:24 am
This coat is indeed very very nice. The collar is a little bit – funny.
January 25, 2007 at 7:08 am
This is the type of man who would look good in anything and nothing.Great shot!
January 25, 2007 at 7:34 am
I think it anyone can rock an air tie, it’s Mr. Boateng. Now, if he would just put out a secondary collection for men who can’t afford $5,000 suits… And whatever happened with his quest to open a US store? Did that die on the vine, anyone know?
January 25, 2007 at 8:01 am
oswald is a very stylish man but in all honesty his suits are considered rather passe in london now. they are worn by celebrity hairdressers and boy band wannabes..
January 25, 2007 at 8:24 am
Boatengs blend of classic Saville Row Style with a gentle fashion forward element is always superb.
January 25, 2007 at 8:34 am
Nothing special here!
January 25, 2007 at 8:51 am
i adore him :)he’s sooo classy. this is the way (of clothing) that i want my man look like!
January 25, 2007 at 10:28 am
Perfekte stijl. Bravo Oswald. BTW isn’t the airtie a return of the 80s? Least that’s the first time i recall seeing it.
January 25, 2007 at 11:18 am
all of it-perfect. the coat, the no-tie, the buttons, and his angle in the shot. presence.
January 25, 2007 at 11:44 am
Ozwald Boateng is sublime, generally. But look at him here: that shirt was made to be worn the way he has and that coat is simply outstanding. He’s incredible!
January 25, 2007 at 1:30 pm
Ozwald is a dream and an impeccable dresser; I miss his show on Sundance…
January 25, 2007 at 2:31 pm
ooooooooo my boyfriend. sigh. just flawless.
January 25, 2007 at 4:15 pm
yum yum yum
January 25, 2007 at 6:04 pm
January 25, 2007 at 8:28 pm
I love that all the comments are so succinct! Just proves that it is a cool look on a great looking guy.
Is the airtie on the way back? Me thinks so.
January 25, 2007 at 8:42 pm
I think it is a big dommage that he leave Givenchy.R.
January 26, 2007 at 10:26 am
I really love the blue tone with the ice blue shirt and dark navy coat.
January 26, 2007 at 10:50 am
If you MUST do the “air tie” this is clearly the right way to do it! Very interesting shaping on the collar making this plain (though very well chosen) ensemble intriguing.J
January 26, 2007 at 10:59 am
This man is so handsome I don’t care what he has on.But he is beautifully dressed in an understated manner that enhances his looks.Sigh!
January 27, 2007 at 9:19 am
Love his look! He is why I love london , very polished new British.
January 27, 2007 at 7:17 pm
I love the lines- crisp, clean. Fantastic
January 28, 2007 at 4:23 am
He looks normal. Nothing special.
January 28, 2007 at 5:05 am
I am so in love with this man!!
His men’s wear is so impeccable, it’s a shame more men don’t adopt the european cut in their suits and blazers here in the US.
January 28, 2007 at 5:48 pm
I love him, I love him, I love him!

What an interesting white dress-the volumes and the draping seem incredible. I’d love to see this live.
February 2, 2007 at 12:39 am
Boateng is on fire! I love the little dance he does after his shows… so haute.
February 2, 2007 at 8:58 am
oswald boateng…what a designer..what an outfit
The Gold Mine$
February 6, 2007 at 11:21 pm
Is it bad that I didn’t look at the outfit because I was focused on that beautiful face?
February 10, 2007 at 7:13 am
HE IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOT!!!
February 17, 2007 at 2:53 am
God this man is gorgeous, and a great designer. I wish I could afford his clothes.

i read about Mr. Boateng in a magazine the other day and hes so fascinating….I think hes from Ghana if i remember right and just a couple of weeks ago he put on a Fashion show for most of Africas Heads of States. He also is a big movie buff and was making a short film in China that involved about 2000 extras from the Chinese Army….oh and his clothes arent bad either
