    Circle theme is interesting , but not feeling the ” ladies tennis skirts ” peaking out. It will be curious to see how or if this translates into street dressing.

      On the contrary Diane, I feel that the pleated skirts are so right for the current time given Givenchy’s obsession for kilts and the general open-mindedness towards a man in a skirt. These ones by AP are shorter and I think they will be better accepted as a style component.
      Is Andrea Pompilio the Alexander Wang of men’s fashion? This collection feels right on the money, an up to the moment presentation of layering for the modern man. I loved all the details, the holes, the half socks and the shameless self promotion (AP logo mania for menswear). I want everything from the show and yes I definitely would wear a short pleated skirt over my jeans. KUDOS Andrea!

    This should be called 50 Shades of Beige. Very nice.

    I would never go out with a man who dressed in any of these outfits. The “layering” looks like a woman’s tennis skirt. Save me

    Great jackets, especially the 1st one.
    I like the show of shirt collar and cuffs under a 3/4 sleeve sweat.
    I’m going to try that look next winter because right now, it’s hot and humid in Florida !

    Regarding the above collection, I think the jackets in the second and fourth shots are fine designs; well cut and well made. The rest i can admire for the unique vision in styling and creating a whole and more individual look, but it’s probably not to my personal taste. I’d like to see these looks applied in the non-catwalk world…

    Aside from that, I have just looked at Faces By The Sartorialist. I commend Scott on this project. It appears that there are photographs here that aren’t included in the main blog?
    They are very rich and vital; every face is beautiful as we focus on the individuality of each. I am looking forward to seeing the recurring subjects of The Sartorialist with their faces in greater detail, up close as sometimes the best photograph at the time may not allow detail there. I feel inspired from this first look. Thank-you!

    This designer gets props for well chosen fabrications and for being on the tail end of challenging gender norms but these looks are so busy that they work against themselves. Yeesh!

    I agree with the person who said, “Save me.” Pretty little pleated skirts on men! Wot next? You have to have a heart of stone not to laugh.

      I live in Australia and I can tell you that I would absolutely wear most of these looks in their entirety without hesitation.

    my guess is: we will not be seeing any of these outfits on the streets of Madison, Wisconsin, Tulsa or even L.A anytime soon. ( Ever)

    This is awful. Can’t imagine which man could wear like this.
    And can’t recognise the perfect Sartorialist judgement on manly taste. Where are those beautiful style samples from – say — Stockholm?

    It looks more like a centurion “skirt” than tennis skirt to me. Roman empire revival? :D

    I know for some it might be edgy and cool, but sandals and socks (even more, cut out socks) look so unpleasant and yucky. Why would someone wear that?

    Wasn’t sandals with socks a natural contraceptive method?, there you go, add a tennis skirt.

    Sorry but those mini pleated skirts are seriously ludicrous.
