Yes, I’m enjoying the mix of high-end couture and casual everyday looks. Admittedly this man almost looks a bit perturbed to be having his picture taken. As though we was simply on his way to the market and was not expecting any detours.

This works for him.
December 17, 2012 at 2:16 pm
Love this casual look for men.

Lumberjack plaid in NYC is always a bit … weird to process.
December 17, 2012 at 2:21 pm
Love the mix of the jacket, the denim and the beanie!
December 17, 2012 at 2:23 pm
Great fit. The bag breaks it up nicely.
December 17, 2012 at 2:25 pm
Yeah, he works it very well!
December 17, 2012 at 2:39 pm
Great jacket :)
December 17, 2012 at 2:40 pm
Yes, he’s doing the urban lumberjack look well!
December 17, 2012 at 2:42 pm
I do love the large-scale plaid here, although combined with the hat it verges slightly on lumberjack.
Very nice color combination.

Cute guy stayin’ warm.
December 17, 2012 at 3:00 pm
He did it well, but I don’t think I could I’m just too short.

Like it! It works!
December 17, 2012 at 3:19 pm
i think this notion calls directly back to understanding your own body and what looks best on it. everyone cannot wear all of the same things because we are all different – this is the beauty of difference and owning your style!!!!
Nice jacket! Looks great on him

Such a cool look! Love the baggy jeans with the desert boots and the checked coat is so cool!
December 17, 2012 at 3:32 pm
The jacket is nice, but in the back it seems a bit short … nevertheless a cool guy

nice men style!!!

It helps when the palette is in harmony–not matchy-matchy–in rhythm, so to speak.
December 17, 2012 at 3:52 pm
Large scale plaid with a shorter length and a slim cut make this jacket modern and not overwhelming. Well chosen accessories.
December 17, 2012 at 3:57 pm
Doesn’t look slim to me; it’s just a regular cut.

I like beanies for the city, he looks great with this one!
December 17, 2012 at 4:27 pm
What makes this jacket work is that the pattern ISN’T placed, or centered symetrically on the back seam. Having the plaid staggered throws the eye off a bit and creates a less blocky, bulky effect than a “correctly” placed pattern. +1 for assymetry
December 17, 2012 at 5:37 pm
Alex that is a very smart observation that my eyes didn’t see at first. I’m learning from your lesson as I look again at the photo. Asymmetry is very very rare in mens cloths I think. Sometimes you see it in womens tops and dresses but not so often with the men.
December 17, 2012 at 10:33 pm
I think you’ll find asymmetrical plaid quite common in most men’s wear. It takes more cloth to achieve symmetry, and that makes the clothing more expensive. In other words, symmetry is more likely in expensive clothes, e.g., Pendleton, etc.

Good eye, Alex–you’re absolutely right! The plaid lines up horizontally, but the vertical placement creates a cool off-center “block” in the back. That detail is what makes the back view work so well. I’d love to have that jacket for myself!
December 17, 2012 at 4:58 pm
Sorry….nouveau lumberjack looks ridiculous. A silly totebag does not help the matter in the least.
December 28, 2012 at 5:11 pm
I dunno – he looks like a guy who doesn’t worry a lot about what he’s wearing, and just needed to be comfortable to hit the street in mid-December. As far as the bag – I prefer not to carry one, but New Yorkers may be out for the day, and need to have some stuff with them, or might find something to buy later on and need a convenient way to carry it – c’mon everybody, it’s just a bag.
December 29, 2012 at 10:04 am
I don’t see a lumberjack wannabe. I see a guy who wants to be comfortable out on the streets of Manhattan. As far as the “silly totebag” – New Yorkers might well be out for the day and either need to have a convenient way to bring some necessities along or have something to carry a purchase or two in – sheesh!
December 17, 2012 at 5:07 pm
I like everything except the bag. I’m still one of those people that can’t picture a man with a bag…I’m starting to get used though!
December 17, 2012 at 5:10 pm
Agree Scott, cool style . I love this outfit.

Filson makes some great versions – my husband has their classic Mackinaw Cruiser in the grey & black plaid, and it doesn’t look very lumberjack on him (his style usually leans towards Zegna & Isaia….)

I like these photos because they belong to this time of the year. Sometimes I see sheer skirts and silk satin and high heels in your photos in Dec and I don’t feel connected to your blog. It feels like an archive of photos from before is being used for many of the posts. I prefer fresh photos that belong to this season.

This is a lovable style.
December 17, 2012 at 9:07 pm
everything about this look is great.. including the bag. i think its ridiculous to say a man can’t carry a bag. this is not even avant guarde, it’s a canvas bag! fashion is fluid, stop putting items of clothing or accessories into gendered boxes. a man can look great carrying a handbag just like a woman can look great in a suit.
December 18, 2012 at 3:13 am
I agree. the bag could be ridiculous on a overdressed man. But not with this very cool casual style.
December 17, 2012 at 9:57 pm
Digging the plaid/denim look. Even that burgundy is nice with it.
December 17, 2012 at 11:21 pm
Nice jacket…reminds me of my mackinaw from Woolrich. Cut a little loose with a moderately high waist. Perfect for layering…

Woolen cap – jacket – canvas bag. — What a fantastic rhythm of colors!
December 18, 2012 at 4:19 am
I call it the “East Village” look. Later, the “Chelsea boy” look, now possibly the “Williamsburg” look. OK, yes, you miss Iowa, but please, spare us. Yawn.

this is like the gold standard on how to dress casually and stylishly. especially love the way his hat picks up the color of the handles of his tote.
December 18, 2012 at 11:09 am
I wanna wear this myself and I’m a girl! I keep looking at this. LOVE IT!
December 18, 2012 at 4:12 pm
Ha ha ha.. Very cool. He is my good friend :-))
December 18, 2012 at 6:21 pm
Listen,,, straight up,,, the guy is hot, and he is smashing that look. The end… Keep-up the good werk Scot. mx

He is a fashion designer .. :-))

The bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where to get it? Brand? Cost?
December 26, 2012 at 5:01 pm
Whenever I see the colors of the Jamaican flag, my spirit perks up immediately and my heartrate goes up just a little bit. Sure wish I could be there today or be snugged up in that jacket.
