    I know you are a fan of this gentleman. I find his pants never seen to lay properly, maybe because of the narrow bottom, but they seem to just not look good. I like a pant that flows well down the leg, his seem to bunch and look poorly all up to the crotch (no, I was not staring)…Just my 2 cents, but for me his outfits just do not send a sign of style and class out.

    I think you have to remember that these are snapshots used to inspire. If I tried to pose everyone perfectly it would lose the spirit.

    Everyones pants wrinkle, crinkle, and rumple – thats life and I think that is more inspirational than a high gloss empty suit.

    Regarding his style I have to politely disagree, David is one of the few people I would ask top help me put a look together.

    I do appreciate your input though, thanks

    those are nice pants. The wide leg, free-drape pants is just a different style, with its own limitations and charm.

    I appreciate your comments Mr. Sartoralist; however, the first commentor is correct. As a stylist who comes from a family of well dressed men there is something to be said about pants that drape correctly. It starts with the proper break. Well enough of that I am more disappointed in his shoes. They are horrible. Not because of color or style, but because of up-keep. I find this is an area most men fall short in. They will spend hundreds even thousands on their garments and just ignore the quality of their kicks. Even if one can not afford an expensive pair of shoes, one should always keep them shined, with good soles and heels. Where I am from the first thing a woman notices on a gentleman is his shoes.

    the charm of this young man is in his smile and the des-elegance, the fact that he doesn´t fit to a regular, straight, way of dressing.

    by one hand is horrible, by other hand is relaxed.

    Agree with the first commenter and Mr. Williams – something is off about the proportion of the pants to the jacket. It’s like an old man’s jacket (boxy) with a young guy’s pants (tapered). This could work, but it doesn’t here. Might have worked on a guy 20 years younger, or might be as simple as unbuttoning the jacket to improve the look, but otherwise, no amount of styling alone is going to fix this. Again, if he were younger, the pants tucked into a nice pair or work boots would make the look complete. As it is, he needs a more traditional cut trouser (fuller) to balance the jacket. Thank you.
