Chambray and wool… the new black?
Lovin the great use of color!
October 25, 2009 at 7:08 pm
Normally, I hate denim-on-denim, but I love the use of accessories and color that sort of cover it up. So confident and stylish!
October 25, 2009 at 7:12 pm
I like those shades, Red sweater, and the whole look!
October 25, 2009 at 7:15 pm
i love seeing this 50s college boy look that is slowly rising. i hope this is what the 2010s will be about!

Scott did you happen to find out where this sweater is from? Also, I bought your book a couple of weeks back and I must say it's one of the best purchases I've made in a long time! I love your work.

Way too cute! Home sweet home LES!
Love the sweater.
October 25, 2009 at 7:22 pm
damn cool, nice job
October 25, 2009 at 7:32 pm
A creative gentleman.
October 25, 2009 at 7:37 pm
great sweater.great shoes.great look.
Great composition and color-palette, of the photo, that is.
The gentleman's choice of attire however, is questionable: What not to wear? Perhaps if he tucked in his shirt and unroll his jeans, AND did not wear those socklettes with is top-siders…?
October 25, 2009 at 7:44 pm
This is super fine
I would have worn red socks to macth the cardigan…but not everyone is that into sock-related humour
October 25, 2009 at 7:56 pm
isn't he wearing a girl jacket ?

I don't know what qualification I have to disagree with the satorialist, but this isn't that snazzy to me. Yes, nice and unique cardigan, but does it go with the rolled up pants? Ray bands are overused, and the rolled up pants bring attention to shoes I don't think are that unusual. They could be jcrew dock-sides for all I know. And the socks look like too-big no-socks. I think the pants, and how they fit, mostly throw everything off. everything is loose, attention is taken to the feet. I don't like.
October 25, 2009 at 7:59 pm
Too short for trousers – too long for shorts?
October 25, 2009 at 8:05 pm
He looks good, weather-appropriate
The pants are looking pretty cool. And nice emphasis with that cardigan.
October 25, 2009 at 8:08 pm
Ankle socks with top-siders? Not a fan of that, but I love the exaggerated lines of the cardigan.
October 25, 2009 at 8:09 pm
Waist up, like it. Waist down, not so much. Although the shoes go great, the rolled up pants make him look skinnier and shorter. Albeit the colors are great. He wears nautical well.
October 25, 2009 at 8:20 pm
A mix of several styles here…
October 25, 2009 at 8:25 pm
I can't see anything creative or stylish about this guy's look.
October 25, 2009 at 8:44 pm
I don't know quite how I feel about this. Side part, goatee, Wayfarers, Deck shoes, denim shirt, high waters, and grandpa cardigan. That's a lot to take in! And it is possible that he just got off a boat!
October 25, 2009 at 8:49 pm
K that's an awesome cardigan
October 25, 2009 at 9:02 pm
give me that sweater! love
October 25, 2009 at 9:08 pm
Isn't it a bit cold out there? lolI love the mixing of the colors, but I don't find that coat this interesting. But love the look

this outfit is not working for me.
October 25, 2009 at 9:17 pm
Like his style . . . and his vintage camera. Also really appreciate your composition in this shot. The stripes on the road and the geometry of the building are a great backdrop.

October 25, 2009 at 9:50 pm
shoes are dope.
October 25, 2009 at 10:12 pm
The cooles thing might be the camera hanging on his neck. :)
Casual Chic. Love how the different colours come together. Perfect.
October 25, 2009 at 10:27 pm
Tell me the boat shoes with black socks showing are ironic.
October 25, 2009 at 10:36 pm
Look like NYC to me! Love the shoes, my dad had a pair and he loved them! takes me back.
October 25, 2009 at 10:38 pm
If only this shot had the amazing mural at Houston and Bowery behind it.

i love capris on guys!
Love double-breasted cardies.
October 25, 2009 at 10:46 pm
I don't comment often, but this man's outfit is phenomenal. I love the contrast…and of course, Wayfarers.
October 25, 2009 at 10:49 pm
The Bright Red Shawl Collar Cardigan sings when contrasted with the Blue Denim shirt. What has two thumbs and approves of this look? (Points at myself with thumbs) This guy.
October 25, 2009 at 11:29 pm
I love the use of contrasting color.And the shoes!
October 26, 2009 at 12:46 am
I'd hang out with this guy. He looks content and confident. Key ingredients to rocking an unconventional look. Great camera, great cardigan.
October 26, 2009 at 12:48 am
perfect…the juxtaposition of the graphic windows & the billowing sweater is amazing. great shot. love it!

October 26, 2009 at 12:55 am
NICE!i usually don't like denimbut that red sweater really accentuates everything.denim doesnt look boring at all in this case.
i also like how the pants are rolled up…i dont noe…it gives me this really cool feeling…like walking with a cool mood on an autumn day :)
October 26, 2009 at 1:06 am
This guy looks like a total fashion victim to me.I mean, come on….absurd, unflattering combo.And if one is going to go 'sockless' then dont let your black 'sockless socks' show out of the tops of one's shoes.
Oh and BTW: THE YANKEES ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES !!
October 26, 2009 at 1:08 am
The bright red of the coat really help the rest of the outfit pop, I think~
October 26, 2009 at 1:22 am
What a nice coat, he looks great and chic! Very modern and refreshed!
October 26, 2009 at 1:26 am
Anyone can identify which model is the camera ? Thanks
October 26, 2009 at 1:28 am
I really enjoy this look. He is pulling it off. Not everyone could but I love it!
October 26, 2009 at 1:45 am
I like the sunglasses and capris.
October 26, 2009 at 1:56 am
This outfit is rather simple… and i think the main accessories here oughta be the wayfarers and the camera! The attitude with which he's walking down the street… ah, that makes for a perfect picture.Also, I love the Cardi!!
the nickel fit
October 26, 2009 at 2:09 am
i want to like this look as i've seen similar, yet subtler coats (ala theory apollo) but the excessive accessories, mixed with the overly cuffed jeans and socked dock shoes all brew a sense of desperation.
it's quite unfortunate, as i do appreciate the coat's silhouette. just don't overdo it with the extra knick knacks and we're set.
in new york especially where contrivance, usually showcased by tourists yet still cringed by many locals, less can still be more.
October 26, 2009 at 2:20 am
This is such a well-put-together outfit!workitberk.blogspot.com
October 26, 2009 at 2:22 am
99.9% Sure the shoes are A.P.C.'s caramel boat shoes. Nice.
October 26, 2009 at 2:38 am
love the sweater but don't love the hiked up dirty looking pants.
October 26, 2009 at 2:58 am
scott, you're making me homesick!!! I miss new york!
October 26, 2009 at 3:32 am
that is a remarkable sweater. and stride.

i saw this shot in your monthly column in gq—love it.
October 26, 2009 at 5:45 am
He looks great, like wayfarer in the big city – NYC.
October 26, 2009 at 6:24 am
The perfect fall combination – turn up jeans, loafers, and a nice chunkie cardie. Possibly one of the last chances he'll get to wear this outfit in NYC this year.
October 26, 2009 at 6:46 am
Set to happily walk and enjoy~!

October 26, 2009 at 6:58 am
nice cardi and shoes but something is wrong with his overall look. maybe he's stylish but he's overdoing it.
1. the jeans is rolled up too high.2. socks should be hidden or no socks.3. the shirt looks a lil too big and long. he could have tuck it in.
October 26, 2009 at 8:25 am
As others have said the composition of the photo is sublime.
Shoes are great, glasses are ok, and the use of color admirable. The gentleman's style, however, is not in my taste. The sweater is distasteful, the presence alone of the socks is off-putting, and the color seems more of an afterthought. Denim on denim is hard to pull off and I'm afraid he doesn't do it well. Top button fastened and rolled up jeans? It's just odd – and in a bad way. The vintage camera does make me smile, although I hope it is intended for use and not as a necklace.
October 26, 2009 at 8:53 am
UGH!!! you were so close to me!!
p.s. i love the boat club look.

nice red cardigan, loving it lol.
October 26, 2009 at 10:15 am
His outfit looks awful. The sweater looks like on made for a woman. He is wearing a denim shirt, with denim pants. And what is up with him rolling his pants up like they are capris. Women wear capris. not men!
October 26, 2009 at 10:22 am
One would have to be extremely confident to try to pull off this look… or just not own a mirror. It's interesting.
October 26, 2009 at 10:32 am
it's exaggerated. not a big fan. isn't it actually denim and wool. looks like a wrangler or levis denim under the sweater. needs to drop the trousers and pair with boots not new age boat shoes
October 26, 2009 at 10:41 am
I perfer topsiders with rolled up or cropped pants it just goes with the scheme. They were first fashioned for boating and I think he has the right idea! Every piece he has on could be a staple in my wardrobe!
October 26, 2009 at 11:22 am
Love the general attitude and the roll-up jeans, but… what about the socks?
October 26, 2009 at 11:41 am
not a fan of this look….we get it! you're freelance and oh-so interesting!
October 26, 2009 at 11:45 am

October 26, 2009 at 12:11 pm
Um, no. I like his attitude, though!

October 26, 2009 at 2:29 pm
I am not thrilled about the pairing of the denims with the red sweater, the sweater fabric, the rolled up jeans or the shoes in any combination…
But what bothers me most about this photograph is this man's posture. Even if I don't like the outfit, to me he is also not wearing it with any kind of style – I mean to say that there is nothing in his being, the way he walks or the expression on his face (plus the backpack, ugh) that exudes a confidence needed for this "quirky whole foods" look… Instead I see "awkward high school ceramics teacher."
October 26, 2009 at 3:57 pm
Okay on a girl.
October 26, 2009 at 4:51 pm
If you start to analyse the outfit can go downhill quickly – yet, it brings a quick smile to my face and a fresh hint of fall.
October 26, 2009 at 11:35 pm
whats up with the Ray Ban glasses,they are everywhere like the swine flu???? i mean these glasses are everywhere !…it really shows that were really a bunch of SHEEP!

October 28, 2009 at 5:15 pm
these pieces aren't working all together for me. individually, they'd be okay.
October 28, 2009 at 9:56 pm
Not for me.
October 29, 2009 at 1:24 pm
the camera is awesome! canon G10!!!
October 29, 2009 at 3:48 pm
I appreciate the individuality of his outfit but it doesn't quite work. makes for a nice photograph yes, but not a good outfit.
The red cardigan, denim shirt, and cuffed pants clash too much in their uniqueness. a different shirt (possibly light blue or some other light color) and maybe roll the pants down just a little and it could work.
I don't mind the ankle socks so much, just need to change their color, black isn't working.
October 31, 2009 at 6:41 am
He is wearing a denim shirt, with denim pantsand his look greats.

Nice. I like the coat and thigh-length dress, the colors work well, too. The boots and her facial expression puts a nice edge on her look.

RE: “Isn’t he wearing a girl jacket?” What that hell is a “GIRL JACKET”? And, WTF if he is!!! Maybe this blog isn’t for you… sheesh… And, if you are such a traditionalist, you’d know that the buttons on “boy” jackets are on the right, making this, in fact, a “boy” jacket… oh, brother…
When I was a kid – maybe 7th grade – my sister found some shoes that tied on the side that I recall as looking like what I might call now “Cuban”. My niece wouldn’t wear them because they were “boys’” – I wouldn’t wear them because they were “girls’”, but ended up wearing them anyway and loving them. Now I’d kill to find a pair like that.
As far as what this guy has on – agree that the shirt should be tucked in. Would love to know what he was thinking when deciding to roll the pants – the weather, fashion… what, exactly. Personally I don’t get it, don’t like it, and think it’s best suited for the beach.
