Plaid are so popular this season, interesting if it will stay on top of fashion next year

I predict it’ll only get bigger (yay)

i love shirt on shirt action. great topic.

I love it! So retro and chic at the same time, great pick!

Nice pic. Have a great day.

With your stature, I’d think you’d look great in the famous “On the Waterfront” jacket that Brando wore.
December 22, 2012 at 3:13 am
I really like this jacket. Best thing, you can buy a replica http://www.aeroleatherclothing.com/product-detail.php?id=907
I recently found the perfect plaid blazer and wore it 2 days ago. :) good luck finding yours.
December 21, 2012 at 2:22 pm
Like it like it like it!

It takes me years to find a new flannel and this year I found something by the brand AR at Barneys. Rich colors. Good scale to the pattern and great proportions. The great part is, once you find the right piece you can enjoy it for years. It is a timeless look despite being on trend right now.

Love this plaid jacket!
December 21, 2012 at 2:58 pm
you might want to consider Pendelton as they are well made and warm (wool) and their colors are always perfect for whatever the season is
I have a plaid chamois shirt from LL Bean that I get a size big so that I can layer underneath (I have to get the arms shortened). Love it. It is just heavy enough.
Their fleece-lined flannel shirts are nice too!

I love the colors in his outfit
December 21, 2012 at 3:27 pm
Scott, great idea from Kiel West above, a plaid jacket “a la Brando” would fit you well because the band at the waist would eliminate the boxy look.
December 21, 2012 at 3:34 pm
this is perfect in terms of layering and proportion, a true lesson of sartorialsim!
December 21, 2012 at 4:14 pm
The colours of the flanel shirt are very nice. And the peekaboo shirt turns the look into a quite interesting one.
December 21, 2012 at 4:29 pm
Looks like authentic workwear…check out Dave’s, 581 6th Ave.

Loving this look: shabby and chic!
December 24, 2012 at 2:59 pm
More shabby than chic from an italian point of view ;-)

I love plaid outerwear on both men and women, but I feel like it’s hard to nail.

love it. great shot!
December 21, 2012 at 8:57 pm
I bet Scot would look great in a nice simple overjacket like that. I love this guys coat, and the shirt does go well. Its not the sort of look that plays well with self consciousness.
December 21, 2012 at 11:44 pm
Preferably by Pendleton.
December 22, 2012 at 2:13 am
Love plaid and patterns for winter. http://www.facebook.com/cityofgentlemen

I adore your blog but, please, would you translade in french like Garance Doré ? Please
January 1, 2013 at 3:25 am
I think actually Garance translates to English, not the other way round.

Love the jacket!!
December 22, 2012 at 7:11 am
Really love this one!
December 22, 2012 at 7:19 am
Practical, warm, stylish! Perfect layering material.
December 22, 2012 at 8:28 am
Obsessed with this particular plaid pattern. So simple and fab.
December 22, 2012 at 8:35 am
OK, shabby chick is spreading out from home decoration to clothing. Sounds like fun!
December 22, 2012 at 9:03 am
Sorry, but I cannot anything stylish about this or the majority of the pictures shown recently. The quality of style pictured recently is very poor.
December 22, 2012 at 10:46 am
Good luck in your search for the perfect plaid Scott, it is a great look. Truly sexy look is the paint on the boots!
December 22, 2012 at 11:07 am
I just got myself two red and black plaid cashmere scarves. I can’t explain how excited I am about it :)
December 22, 2012 at 11:38 am
You can’t miss w/ Pendleton. The new Portland collection is so fresh. However, I recently found some great vintage Pendleton pieces that look contemporary today.
December 22, 2012 at 12:37 pm
I bought a vintage plaid wool coat at What Comes Around Goes Around in NYC several years ago and it’s one of my all-time favourite pieces! Bold, but timeless :)
December 22, 2012 at 4:23 pm
Now, that’s a real rock’n'roll style! Love it!
December 22, 2012 at 7:10 pm
Try Howe Clothing. New but awesome.

I love plaid! Great for layering.
December 22, 2012 at 9:50 pm
YES! a little bit of ’90 is always something good.
December 23, 2012 at 12:12 am
For a fab well-priced American-made plaid (unlined) woolen outer coat ($168 for women) see Bemidji Woolen Mills (Minnesota)

Being from Canada Plaid is always a great choice.

I find it funny this person was probably not trying to be fashionable judging by the dirty jeans, beat up shoes and gatorade and water in hand. I would know: my farmer husband wers similar stuff but for function, not fashion!
December 23, 2012 at 3:45 pm
dude is clearly hungover. what’s noteworthy is that he looks this good when he’s just left the apartment for cigs and rehydrations and will spend maximum 20 minutes outside.
December 23, 2012 at 6:04 pm
I just say Al Borland from Home improvement! :)))
December 24, 2012 at 3:22 am
Great. Now I’ll have to put all my vintage Pendleton plaids back in the closet. I certainly don’t want to be trendy…..
December 24, 2012 at 4:38 am
Great pics. I like the check shirts and color is also good.
December 24, 2012 at 8:13 am
Love this… casual.. a time & a place for it always
December 24, 2012 at 8:53 am
Hey, probably Santa will bring you the perfect plaid – if you ve been a good guy :-)
December 24, 2012 at 1:12 pm
go grab a south2west8 flannel at nepenthes, they are the best on earth. or get a proxy and grab one from sassafras for the triple stitch.
December 24, 2012 at 5:04 pm
You can find lots of places for plaid outerwear. Moreover, the authentic stuff is not expensive at Sportsman’s Guide, Walls, Carhart, Cabela’s, Bean or their outlets.
December 24, 2012 at 10:39 pm
but you’re aware this type of guy threw this on without a look in the mirror..? he wasn’t “playing” with any pattern combo, he was going to his trade job on a brisk day.
December 25, 2012 at 3:57 pm
I hope so. He looks great without all this torturous pondering.
January 1, 2013 at 3:30 am
Or at least many people do wear something just like this to a manual job. But that doesn’t mean someone can’t take parts of his great, very unselfconscious look and make something more refined out of it if they wanted to.
And the guy in the picture has certainly NEVER done any manual labor in his life. Look at his hand.
December 25, 2012 at 3:52 am
I like this look, very casual and relaxed.
December 25, 2012 at 11:11 pm
Dumpy. Looks like the guys who painted my house.

I like plaid and stripes.
I like beat up shoes.
I also didn’t realize that to be photographed for this blog you had to be trying? People’s functional outfits can be inspiration too, no?
IS THIS IT? models review
December 26, 2012 at 6:15 am
Plaid?, hehe exactly what I’m weraring right now… not a super-fan in fact, but sometimes I quite like it. :)
December 26, 2012 at 9:06 am
love this look!!
we love your blog
December 26, 2012 at 12:44 pm
If it’s not a Pendleton it sure looks like one. Pendleton is still owned by the Bishop family The mill in Washougal Washington weaves the linear designs and the mill in Pendleton weaves the more curvy, jaquard-type work. Both mills offer interesting tours. and have fantastic selections of items for sale, bits from the mill, buttons, yardage, blankets, clothing.
December 26, 2012 at 1:36 pm
Nice shirt, love the pic!
December 26, 2012 at 4:36 pm
I feel like over thinking plaid flannel is kinda defeating the whole point. It is like spending an hour in front of the mirror trying to purposely make your hair look greasy/messy. It loses its authenticity. In my humble opinion.
December 27, 2012 at 7:58 am
December 28, 2012 at 1:16 am
Pendleton in Portland! Timeless savoir faire. You can find Pendleton jackets, shirts, women’s suits at any and all Portland area thrift stores. Vintage is still going strong out here, you should come on out and have a look.
December 28, 2012 at 5:58 am
LOVE IT! You’re a big inspiration for me and you’re the reason why i bought myself a camera now and want to shot streetstyles like you. Today i got your Book “Closer” and i love it! The Pictures and the stories behind!
maybe you can Check out my Tumblr!
Keep up the Work!

Plaid has a long overdue come back on the cards.
December 28, 2012 at 8:26 pm
or maybe just plaid-lined, like the LLBean stuff, turn the red cuffs up…
December 30, 2012 at 5:50 pm
since the person is carrying both water and gatorade, and the fact that this was taken in NYC, i’d say this person is recovering from a hangover… :) or maybe he just has a cold :)
January 3, 2013 at 8:54 pm
any suggestions for a red and black plaid jacket (like the thickness picture) but with a straight cut at the lower hem (unlike this jacket) with black jeans? I love the coat, but I often feel the transition is too abrupt, and I’ve never really been a thoughtful dresser.
