    Well, I’ll be…darned (no pun intended). Military jacket and tie worn OVER the…well, in this case cowl-necked shirt-over-hoodie. Clearly the next wave.

    ALMOST like it….

    Amazing blog! I love the pictures.
    Have a slew of Marines been giving away their uniforms? I had no idea they were so available to others!

    It’s the brass buttons and the novel tie!

    How long until it’s on runways? Or has it already been there?

    Where can I get a jacket like this? I’m a girl and I haven’t seen any in the womens section of stores.

    Ah yes… that’s just about how I dressed in 1968 … Except my tie had a hand painted duck hunting scene and the tunic was a Canadian infantry officer’s, WWII vintage. Olive drab but with nice brass buttons. God bless the Sally Anne. Tyr there or an army surpluss store, anon.

    people like julain casablancas and carl barat – and their fans – have rocked them for years…these millitary coats are a castoff from indie rock.

    that said it is a good look, but it’s going the way of the shemag/keffiyah at this point I’m afraid.

    well, i think thats a wave thats been around for a while (jimmy page). im not sure about the jacket, maybe if it was fitted more smoothly, but the rest seems to work pretty well.-ATWR

    For Anon 10:41 PM looking for the jacket, i’ve seen a similar one at kennethcole.com, type in “military jacket.”

    The military jacket thing has been done to death in the UK. It’s very Top Shop.

    Sorry, but I’m not a fan.

    Two trends Sart: military jacket and tie thing, and skinny jeans tucked into boots! I love this picture! This dude is seriously stylish, looks like he could be a model and he just looks that much more well put-together than the other guy in the military jacket. Jeans and boots, and how they are tucked in, are wonderful. Great great great!!

    very nice. reminds me of londoners esp. during the ‘we all worship the libertines’ military jacket phase from a few years back-only more individually stylish, less copycat. love the way he’s wearing boots with the jeans though-that’s quite different.

    I really like the sailor stripes peeking out from under the jacket too! Very nice indeed.

    To anon 8:34-
    Why is this necessarily an “urban trend”?
    What does Vibe magazine have to do with military jackets any more than V Man or GQ?
    I hope your assesment isn’t limited to the fact that the two very stylish guys happen to be of African descent!

    You posted a similar look recently, yes? I think I prefer the way this gentleman executes the military jacket-over-whatever trend better than the previous post.

    I think you found several. Military jacket, skinny tie, skinny jeans, varsity scarf: all in one. Who is this fashionista?

    Nothing really new actually. Done thousands of time before, and been on european streets for the last couple of years.

    This only say to me: The Strokes, Libertines, Will.I.Am (actually all the dudes from Black Eye Peas), D&G (winter 2006), … any Boys Band (circa 2000) … which is pretty bad.

    At the same time, it also says : Helmut Lang, Junya Watanabe (winter 2006), … Andre 3000, and this is good.

    its the marine jacket for the american army! I got one from eBay two years ago and tailored it to fit me (I’m a tiny little girl) but I only wore it twice, because then came the whole bloody “napoleon jacket” trend. baah

    I just have to wonder how he will dress the next day. Cover this guy for a whole week, Sart, and see if he has long-term style or if it’s just a one-day thing. Maybe he dresses like that everyday.

    Seriously, this is too much for me. The jacket is very nice- but overdone with the striped shirt, tie, whatever that hood thing is, skinny jeans into boots. it looks like a costume to me. it’s interesting, but too much!

    To tamberk…
    Not that I read any of those three zines (the closest I come to Vibe is its newish “Vibe Vixen” pub), but Vibe is the first that came to mind as that’s my frame of reference.

    While I’m not a fashionista by any means, I recognize that cultural communities like mine, as well as others (Harajuku, anyone?) can set fashion trends oft polished with political overtones as I’m more than guessing this miltary/warzone one is.

    Just a Londoner chiming in to say this look is v. London and boring. Skinny jeans on men erm no….

    Whoever mentioned Andre 3000 was so wrong for that…he looks nothing like him…such a lazy generalisation to make…

    I like this shot!
    but I don’t think it’s a military jacket. looks more like a vintage bell-boy jacket.
    very interesting outfit all together!
