He is a handsome dude. Love his tapered orange pants and matching socks and tie, and his Afro.
October 27, 2009 at 9:34 am
What completes the look is the newspaper he is holding in his right hand! overall this is a great photograph, i love the bus in the background.

Nice looks that blends some hard to work colors. Those corduroy pants look like their are either for the very fashion savy, or a very old man out in the English countryside.
October 27, 2009 at 9:47 am
He's huge. Not a fan of the no socks, but otherwise very cool.
October 27, 2009 at 9:48 am
Great clothes. But his posture, the purposeful stride. That makes the look.
October 27, 2009 at 9:50 am
I like the tie fitting to the pants
October 27, 2009 at 9:51 am
I like his outfit!
October 27, 2009 at 9:54 am
Quintessentially London and so so stunning!
October 27, 2009 at 9:59 am
October 27, 2009 at 10:00 am
this is great! he is so tall and yet he is not afraid to still be himself and wear what he likes.

Really nice shoot. Like his look.
October 27, 2009 at 10:08 am
waouuuuuuuh… impressive! quelle allure!
Love him, hate the pants and bare ankles! You really had me until I scrolled down to see the rest of the photo.
Hey, I thought they got rid of all the double decker buses in London?
The Man Who Knew Too Much
October 27, 2009 at 10:12 am
Wow that guy is tall isn't he!?
October 27, 2009 at 10:13 am
Wow, that guy looks tall!
It's a look I might typically associate with smaller physiques, but he really rocks it!
(Of course, when you're tall and wear pants that length do some people assume you just couldn't find any long enough? Alas, I have no reason to know the answer myself.)
October 27, 2009 at 10:14 am
he looks a little bit like will.i.amawesome pic, love the surrounding
Francesca said… love love ur action shots!
i WAS GOING TO MAKE THE SAME COMMENT !!!
October 27, 2009 at 10:16 am
Excellent! Only the English seem to mix colors and textures together like no other. Americans take note. I miss London!!!!
October 27, 2009 at 10:17 am
Rust cords. Love it. Just what the city needs. That's the problem with London office wear – look at all those dull suits. Goes to show you can do smart and colour. Liverpool Street is so depressing in the morning. This guy would cheer me up x
October 27, 2009 at 10:19 am
Love his style and the color selection..but I still want to lower the hem of those pants to the tops of his shoes…sigh..and give him a pair of sheer silk men's socks – maybe brown with thin stripes..
October 27, 2009 at 10:23 am
that is amazing.
October 27, 2009 at 10:28 am
This guy is soooo tall !! Great look and pants. Thank you.
October 27, 2009 at 10:30 am
great job. I love all the colors here!
October 27, 2009 at 10:39 am
Love his tapered orange trousersmatching socks tie, and his Afro.
October 27, 2009 at 10:41 am
this shot tells stories
he is perfect just as he is
October 27, 2009 at 10:42 am
I'm in love!
The Redhead Riter
October 27, 2009 at 10:44 am
He is one freaking tall man!!!
He must be expecting a flood too!
October 27, 2009 at 10:47 am
The guy in the background on the phone is nicely, if quietly, dressed too!
October 27, 2009 at 10:56 am
……Despite my disdain for the whole flood pants "look" I have to admit he looks very striking and most definitely not in a slightly comic pee wee herman way. Oddly enough I have a Spy cartoon in my house of a Victorian politician the Marquess of Hartington (subsequently 8th Duke of Devonshire) and he's wearing a pair of ankle baring pants that look very similar to these.
October 27, 2009 at 10:58 am
Beautiful color coordination of the tie and pants with the very neutral jacket.Too bad the pants look like they have been through a hot dryer cycle—–a little too tight and short.
And the socklessness……sigh.
October 27, 2009 at 11:04 am
That's a big man in floods. He's courageous.
October 27, 2009 at 11:15 am
Wow he looks amazing. Especially compared to all the drab looking business men walking past him, he is a breath of fresh air!
October 27, 2009 at 11:23 am
His pant length is spot on.
October 27, 2009 at 11:39 am
I like the mix of colors and textures, as well as the pocket scarf and newspaper, but those pants are just not flattering… tapered pants don't work on every body type, and these are also way too short for this gentleman.
October 27, 2009 at 11:42 am
Classic! thats all I can say
October 27, 2009 at 11:47 am
Its so inspiring to see that color pants. In a store, folded on a table, it could seem impossible to wear. But seeing them combined here gives courage to know they can be worn, and worn well!
Just a little cuff under the jacket, a great tie and some texture in his jacket pocket make this one a keeper for sure.
October 27, 2009 at 11:53 am
October 27, 2009 at 11:54 am
We don't have Crosswalks in London ;)
He looks so good…the orange trousers that are the right kind of short are so cool
October 27, 2009 at 12:06 pm
The gentleman in the backgroun looks like George Soros.
October 27, 2009 at 12:08 pm
Oh, man! Fantastico. I love people who show pride in their stride, regardless of the job.
October 27, 2009 at 12:09 pm
Like the color of the pants, but strongly dislike the length.
October 27, 2009 at 12:12 pm
perfect color coordination!!
October 27, 2009 at 12:15 pm
Fantastic. That is all I have to say. Fantastic.
October 27, 2009 at 12:24 pm
that's one dapper giant!
i suppose if you're going to stand out from the crowd you might as well look good doing it.
very 60s jazz bebop
October 27, 2009 at 12:25 pm
Nice pic! I've seen this guy before in Paris and I think he goes by the name " Sauvage". But I agree He truly does have style beyond belief, but If you were to see him in person you would understand what I mean.
Sorry N.Y Im heading to London!
October 27, 2009 at 12:26 pm

October 27, 2009 at 12:50 pm
i love this look, takes me back a few eras. the length and texture and color fo the pants are my faaaave!
October 27, 2009 at 12:54 pm
this is so London – lots of quiet looking people and then someone who stops you in your tracks -except of course noone takes a blind bit of notice.
And just for the record they got rid of the lovely old Routemaster double deckers. But we have new ones. This is a new style double decker – you can tell from the closed doors at the front which mean you can't jump on and off. Very annoying at red traffic lights when you're in a hurry….
October 27, 2009 at 12:58 pm
I love it! He oozes confidence! That outfit looks like it would wear anyone else, but he wears it for sure. I love to see men that take pride in a look that doesn't look too pretentious. Great as always!
October 27, 2009 at 12:59 pm
Just bought my husband a pair of pants about this length…I was afraid at first but this photo has given me confidence. He looks fantab. Me likey.
October 27, 2009 at 1:05 pm
Is he 7 feet tall? In the photo he towers above the others on the street, though he is in the foreground. His color choices (burnt orange and browns) are also great contrast to the mostly blue/gray clothed crowd behind him. The double decker certainly gives us a sense of place, but I wonder how the palette would be different without it.Maybe it's not a daring look for London, but from my seat in WV, I'm admiring how he's pushed the envelope with burnt orange skinny pants and a hankie.
October 27, 2009 at 1:14 pm
love this man's style…the shorter pant line and bare ankles IS what makes this look…italian men do the same.
October 27, 2009 at 1:18 pm
more Italian influence than English.
October 27, 2009 at 1:21 pm
he doesn't have any socks!!!!… love him…
October 27, 2009 at 1:22 pm
hot. yum. single? alas, i'm not.
October 27, 2009 at 1:23 pm
Very striking and great mixing of colors.
October 27, 2009 at 1:25 pm
I like this picture not just because of the guy's clothes, but b/c of how candid it is and b/c of the unaware background. It feels so much more real, less contrived, more action.
October 27, 2009 at 1:26 pm
Fantastic! I love this and echo what Castleberry said about the gentleman's pants!
October 27, 2009 at 1:28 pm
Love, love, love! He's not afraid to stand out in a crowd…
October 27, 2009 at 1:35 pm
October 27, 2009 at 1:40 pm
That's what I call dashing! Cool and offbeat style, and an awesome capture.
October 27, 2009 at 1:44 pm
the nickel fit
October 27, 2009 at 1:48 pm
enjoy everything, except the excessively short pants. a sliver of flesh is always sexier than 3x ankle height.
it loses its charm when it's overdone.
to boot, high collars have been replaced with slimmer ones, but who's looking when you have capris on.
October 27, 2009 at 2:07 pm
Wow, I love everything about this shot.
October 27, 2009 at 2:30 pm
Adore men who don't afraid to wear what they like! Warm сhocolate colour with grey, interesting mix.
October 27, 2009 at 2:36 pm
Love the cords and the autumnal colors, but, with winterwear, one should don socks.
October 27, 2009 at 3:00 pm
Wow! Great shot! Great subject!
October 27, 2009 at 3:05 pm
This is one of the best post ever. Everyone looks so good and happy. I'm trying to start my own local fashion blog but i'm a little shy about asking people to take their pix. Any tips?
October 27, 2009 at 3:20 pm
October 27, 2009 at 3:23 pm
Love his purposeful strut!
October 27, 2009 at 3:44 pm
"To sir, with love…."
October 27, 2009 at 3:51 pm
- warm colors, nicely tailored pants, what a gait…
October 27, 2009 at 3:54 pm
Great stride, confidence, effortless…the guy has style.
I have been going sockless in winter for ever, only wearing socks in the evening or with a suit…as for the suggestion of "sheer silk socks" with cords… well, I wont say more..
October 27, 2009 at 3:57 pm
The colors are put together AWesomely, those pants are superb. And I love the casual look of his handkerchief.
I'm not at all opposed to tapered, short pants, but I think that, when considering the overall silhouette, there's something about the combination of the pants, the socklessness and those fairly dainty heeled shoes that bring the twinkle-toed hippos from Fantasia to mind, though the gentleman is certainly no hippo: there just isn't enough of a foundation to the outfit.
I have the same issue with long legs and small feet, and as much as I love tapered pants and little italian loafers on other guys I just can't pull them off together. Were the pants longer and more columnar (or the shoes changed for boots!) I would stand up and applaud.
October 27, 2009 at 3:59 pm
Genius look. Très dapper! I love it!
October 27, 2009 at 4:01 pm
Long, long legs and a great colour combination. Just gave away a curdoroy shirt in this colour… Oh, why did I???
October 27, 2009 at 4:07 pm
He looks great, like a well dressed, relaxed gentleman, who doesn't have to hurry anywhere else, only to cafe, to order a cup of espresso and read his paper.
I long for seeing the end of too-short pants though. I just can't stand it. Not only because it made nearly everyone to look just ridicuolus, like a impoverished paperboy form Charlie Chaplin movie, but I find it just stupid and exaggerated, exactly as I find too long pants and t-shirts of gangsta style studpidly exaggerated.
October 27, 2009 at 4:08 pm
October 27, 2009 at 4:12 pm
this shot is great! Center of attention!
October 27, 2009 at 4:31 pm
He has got it going on. Co-ordinated right down to the rims, socks and pocket square.
October 27, 2009 at 4:50 pm
Very impressive sense of style. Everything fits and works so well together. The tailored pants, no socks with those amazing loafers. Wow.
October 27, 2009 at 5:05 pm
very handsome! would love to see the brooch up close, simple, beautiful addition to a great outfit.
October 27, 2009 at 5:06 pm
nice pants and jacket
October 27, 2009 at 5:14 pm
One of my favourites, he just looks so cool and put togetherplus a black Londoner with Italian style, what an awesome combination

'a black Londoner with Italian style' truly said absence of the socks cannot take the style away form this dapper chap!
I have spotted him many times at fashion week and rumor has it he is launching a clothing label.
couldn't find any more information.
overall, I think Scott takes the credit for his great eye! we love you sartorialist.
October 27, 2009 at 6:04 pm
Now THIS I love! The fit, the colors, the accessories, the hair, the confidence! And those shoes…they are amazing.
October 27, 2009 at 6:10 pm
Love the matching tie and pants! Genius!
WOW! Handsome, tall, stylish, confident, CAN PULL OFF ORANGE/BROWN SUEDE(?) pants! What a combo.
October 27, 2009 at 6:21 pm
Very nice look. I like tall men, love cropped trousers and no socks.
October 27, 2009 at 6:36 pm
THE GUY IS PRETTY TALL, SAY 6' 3, 6'4. I KNOW BECAUSE HE WAS STOOD THREE PEOPLE IN FRONT OF ME AT THE SARTORIALIST BOOK SIGNING IN LONDON'S LIBERTY DEPARTMENT STORE.
TO GET AWAY WITH THAT LOOK IN PRETTY CONSERVATIVE LONDON I IMAGINE HE MUST WORK IN HIGH END BESPOKE TAILORING….PERHAPS I AM WRONG, BUT IN ANY CASE….HE IS 'REPRESENTING!'.
October 27, 2009 at 6:49 pm
Does anyone know his name? I'm smitten:)
October 27, 2009 at 6:59 pm
Like flares and cuban heels in the '70s, one day men will look back at this and think, what was I doing?
October 27, 2009 at 7:37 pm
i see a great many comments about him not wearing socks….who needs socks if your skin tone is that beautiful?
October 27, 2009 at 7:42 pm
this is beautiful style
October 27, 2009 at 8:09 pm
Behold, near the street sign, shhhh… – someone wearing a baseball cap. A back to front one at that.
Dematerializer ray gun pointed. Steady…
October 27, 2009 at 9:00 pm
Cute, faboulous, elegant, chic, cool.. The colours are stunnig also! Love it! Bravo Scott!
October 27, 2009 at 9:02 pm
well put together
October 27, 2009 at 9:23 pm
what a presence
October 28, 2009 at 2:12 am
This is officially my new favourite sartorialist shot. I thought it was worth my first comment since the years I've been following you too!

October 28, 2009 at 5:11 am
Scott, your action shots are way more interesting than posed ones. But…I've said it before many times. :)
This is a good looking dapper youngster!
October 28, 2009 at 7:42 am
He doen't wear socksThat is so sexy bare foot whith mocassin
October 28, 2009 at 8:01 am
That is one tall man.
October 28, 2009 at 8:19 am
This is a fantastic shot! Love the suit!!
October 28, 2009 at 9:12 am
It looks so NYC but it's London – yay!
October 28, 2009 at 9:23 am
I was cycling down the street behind this guy the other day and couldn't help appreciate his matched socks and trousers so I'm glad you've actually caught him on camera!
October 28, 2009 at 9:43 am
To my eye everybody in the photograph seems stylishly.and I think he is chic.
October 28, 2009 at 11:01 am
looks absolutely bad, those pants being first thing
October 28, 2009 at 11:19 am
Wow, this man is bursting with confidence! Stands out in every way. And his eye-catching yet completely wearable outfit tops it all off pretty nicely. Amazing! Love it!
October 28, 2009 at 12:00 pm
wow hes toweringggggggg love his pants
October 28, 2009 at 12:30 pm
October 28, 2009 at 2:44 pm
Love the risk-taking Viv Westwood-esque look. Would love to witness his fashion changes through the week. Tomorrow, shades of green? Weekend, cricket jumpers, heavy linen dispatch shorts? Questions, questions. He's a real mover this one!
October 28, 2009 at 4:35 pm
He's head and shoulders above the rest in more ways than one. Love this shot!
October 28, 2009 at 10:12 pm
Handsome man! Everyone looks busy in this photo, but the man in the middle looms large over the others. I don't know if it's the perspective or what, but it's a great shot!

October 29, 2009 at 12:50 pm
bespoke london style
October 29, 2009 at 1:32 pm
It's his job to look good ;-) Besides all that – he is a great guy!
His name is Sauvage Adrian.
October 29, 2009 at 2:51 pm
oh, oh! love it! i love especially the way his personality seems to come across here through both his clothing (and its fit) and his posture/carriage. looks like a fun guy to know.
October 29, 2009 at 3:40 pm
For me, the coat makes the outfit. The orange pants would be outrageous with any other coat. Perfect blending of tonal ranges! The decision to wear black loafers instead of lace ups or even brown shoes makes a world of difference. the inclusion of socks, unless they were chocolate brown, would ruin this pairing!
I highly support the puffed folded pocket square as well! nice touch!
Now all he needs is a hat! A dark chocolate brown or black bowler would do nicely! OR even a deerstalker would do well i think, just enough patterning to crown it all off!
Emma Louise Layla
October 30, 2009 at 9:31 am
It's Sauvage! He always looks great and well turned out. Nice to see a straight guy dress beautifully and make an effort.
October 30, 2009 at 2:07 pm
This is style!
October 30, 2009 at 7:10 pm
Perfect picture!! The people behind him are so small and without style…!!

November 1, 2009 at 8:12 am
I was wondering how long till someone said his name ;-) Sauvage is great, always super stylis, and of course it helps to be this tall. Great shot!

Reminds me of Will Smith in pursuit of happiness! Love it!
November 1, 2009 at 9:11 pm
Love his colors and love his posture and gait.
November 1, 2009 at 11:39 pm
I like the colors he has going on here. I don't think that the floods with no socks is a good look here, but other than that, I like it.
November 2, 2009 at 9:50 am
Quelle classe! C'est EXCELLENT, j'adore.
November 2, 2009 at 1:38 pm
Maybe I am too conservative, but he looks like a caricature from the waist down.
November 2, 2009 at 1:44 pm
oh, hello there…
he's beyond perfect.
November 2, 2009 at 6:15 pm
he looks about 6"8 or 6"9. Nice to see a man of his stature standing up straight, owning his height. My exboyfriend was this tall as well and he also looked this fabulous in clothes (with a bit of a hoxton influence). Rocking the ankle swingers and the way sleeves ride up on the forearm is also a great look, esp. when worn with confidence, like 'i'm proud to be this tall' (seeing as how most london boys roll their skinnies up in order to look taller and show off their boney ankles!)
November 3, 2009 at 2:38 am
Lovely man, great outfit–as an earlier commenter said, he's dashing. I don't usually like short pants, but in the context of the rest of his look (and his obvious height and strength), there's something really charming about his delicate little ankles!
November 3, 2009 at 2:58 am
love this picture, the colors, the style. love everything about it. it is a very comfortable piece.
November 3, 2009 at 12:29 pm
This guy would be beyond brilliant with longer trousers.
Sorry, to me the short pant looks clown-like. I hope I never get used to them.
November 4, 2009 at 4:10 pm
i love a dapper man, especially when he throws in his own specialness to his look. it's delish!
November 6, 2009 at 12:18 am
November 21, 2009 at 10:43 am
impressive man. would love to see his next day look.
November 23, 2009 at 9:08 am
So Refreshing to see, This guy is so so cool. I love the way he's so comfortable with himself and I ask the people who criticize, What would you rather see, the people in the background who don't really care for fashion or this charming debonair fashionista who has his own style????
November 25, 2009 at 7:47 am
just two words: PER-FECT
December 6, 2009 at 11:38 pm
Makes me nostalgic
December 8, 2009 at 6:35 am
December 8, 2009 at 9:45 am
I love the colors.
That's a tall dude. His legs look a mile long. Maybe a 3 button jacket would suit him better.
December 19, 2009 at 1:20 pm
I usually focuse on socks when pants are short.But here the bare ankles are just perfect.
December 23, 2009 at 4:39 pm
Color, cut, attitude: fan-fucking-tastic.
January 2, 2010 at 7:22 pm
I love this! He's alluring and incredibly dapper…
January 17, 2010 at 2:42 pm
Ah, he is brilliant! The trousers look amazing!
December 23, 2011 at 9:17 am
I’m way behind on the date but he looksss amazing!!!
