I like this.
October 5, 2009 at 9:10 pm
somehow those plaids work together.
I love this, it looks like something Will. I. Am would wear. Your blog is amazing :)

loving the collar
October 5, 2009 at 9:18 pm
That is the most casual look I've seen from a mix-match suit ensemble. It reminds me of the West Coast for some reason.
October 5, 2009 at 9:19 pm
This works for me!
October 5, 2009 at 9:20 pm
Absolutely love this picture!
great mix between the patterns
Hook The Look
subdued cool. discreet detail. i like.
October 5, 2009 at 9:21 pm
I love this! He's even popping his collar, which I've tried but people hated on. I enjoy looking at this guy and think to myself "why didn't I come up with that first?"
i love mixing the same prints, this is a great example!
October 5, 2009 at 9:29 pm
That is awesome, love the color!!! ;)

And the hat!
October 5, 2009 at 9:37 pm
Wow – Well done!
October 5, 2009 at 9:41 pm
I love him!

Brilliant. Absolutely love it. I wish you could've caught a close up shot of the hat, however.
Otherwise, the whole combination is great. Love the watch, too.
October 5, 2009 at 9:50 pm
Well done and class!!
October 5, 2009 at 9:54 pm
October 5, 2009 at 9:56 pm
This should go into the "what not to wear" file. I'm not fond of the 3 plaids but that's only part of the problem here. The two watches are another sore spot. I don't like this.
October 5, 2009 at 9:58 pm
oh so classy! loving the beard and every bit of detail on this guy!
nice.Thats called making it happen.
October 5, 2009 at 10:00 pm
I like how the color of his drink offsets his jacket.
October 5, 2009 at 10:09 pm
Well done sir! Well done indeed.
October 5, 2009 at 10:12 pm
I looove the plaid! I love the colorus and the pattern together.
October 5, 2009 at 10:13 pm
ooooooo! This guy has STYLE.
October 5, 2009 at 10:14 pm
I hadnn't really noticed the mixture of plaids until after the second picture. Love how he wears the jacket, very unique!
October 5, 2009 at 10:16 pm
works so well as each plaid is a contrast of the other and mimics the colours.
what is his pin of?
October 5, 2009 at 10:17 pm
ooh, so risky. but so, so worth it!
October 5, 2009 at 10:20 pm
October 5, 2009 at 10:25 pm
Interesting…. But risky, I think!
October 5, 2009 at 10:27 pm
i love mixing the same patterns!!

Very cool. He seems to carry this outfit off very well!
October 5, 2009 at 10:33 pm
October 5, 2009 at 10:38 pm
funky, yet still very well put together. his accessories compete with the coolness of the plaid. the glasses and beard, the unfolded collar, and tiny dreads peeping out from the back of his hat… i love this photo.
October 5, 2009 at 10:42 pm
Very subtle mixture, the colors and plaids work well together.
October 5, 2009 at 10:47 pm
The only thing I can think to say is~ a man that's invited to the Burberry party in London can dress like he wants to!;>)
October 5, 2009 at 10:54 pm
that's great. i like the way he's wearing his collars too.
October 5, 2009 at 10:56 pm
October 5, 2009 at 11:08 pm
I think it works because the grain of the plaid is almost identical. Also, if you look closely, the plaids both have traces of blue and tan. There's not giant clashing checks. I like it!

October 5, 2009 at 11:09 pm
damn. look at the quality in that outfit!
October 5, 2009 at 11:12 pm
This guy is definitely a rock star! Love it!
October 5, 2009 at 11:15 pm
October 5, 2009 at 11:19 pm
It's all good!
love that it is not trendy, etc… and looks very eye-pleasing. more please.
October 5, 2009 at 11:27 pm
all you need is bloc party or english beat and you're set
October 5, 2009 at 11:28 pm
that is so rich in color, soo nice. not too much but just the perfect pieces.
October 5, 2009 at 11:34 pm
Is it actually only 2 watches?orare there 2 on each arm?Interesting idea.smiles.

Love the plaid blazer and the added accessories. The watch, hat, pin, bracelets…
October 6, 2009 at 12:01 am
Oh Jesus… we're looking at the same photo, right? I don't like it at all. Either plaid blazer or plaid slacks; not both. Either pop the collar or lift the sleeves; not both. Either lift a drink or the mobile; not both.
October 6, 2009 at 12:08 am
So nice!Thanks for the sartorial vitamin.
October 6, 2009 at 12:10 am
I love love love the outfit! The man clearly has a lot of style.
But, I wish the trousers were cut by someone who knew what they were doing. The check is so far from matching at the center front, it's criminal.
October 6, 2009 at 12:16 am
The plaids go well together, but I completly hate the fit of them. The pants are way too big, and the blazer isn't very fit.
October 6, 2009 at 12:19 am
Now that's what I call cool!
October 6, 2009 at 12:28 am
combination of perfect pieces working together – even the colour of the drink works to set off the outfit…
Oh Prince of plaid, I fall at your feet in adoration
October 6, 2009 at 12:43 am
I think I want to try his whole look for ME! Great tweedy fall look without looking heavy.
October 6, 2009 at 12:45 am
this is beautiful. love it!
October 6, 2009 at 12:57 am
Love the sophistication of cut and fabrics, but he has over-accessorized so much that it destroys the look. Accessories should be chosen with care.

This gentleman appreciates the fluidity of plaid. Thank you.
October 6, 2009 at 4:00 am
October 6, 2009 at 5:07 am
Funnily enough, it's the fellow's over-accessorising rather than his plaid combinations that make the outfit a little OTT. I like the colour of his sportcoat
October 6, 2009 at 5:09 am
nice combination… i love the horn-rimmed glasses :)
October 6, 2009 at 5:18 am
and the hat as well!!!
October 6, 2009 at 5:41 am
its the same pattern almost but in different colours. i wish i could see the shape and cut of the trousers. it looks great but im a bit board with this style to be fair. great tailoring tho x

Nice Jacket!Hey it was nice to see U in Paris.Just woke up that day…not fashion day…sleepy day or dreamy day should i say!Cheers from parisMonica

October 6, 2009 at 6:56 am
He reminds me of Will.I.Am, I love the beautiful shade of green. Colours compliment each other very nicely, and I love on the zoom how you pick up the brown running through the green. Beautiful, and it shows how important fit and cut is in a tailored piece like a blazer.
October 6, 2009 at 6:57 am
what a gorgeous gentleman!
October 6, 2009 at 7:11 am
I find it so hard to pull out a mixed plaid look from head to toe. But somehow you manage to always find gentlemen that do that brillantly so. Well done ;)
October 6, 2009 at 7:35 am
I like the fabrics and accessories together, and together they look good on him. Except that the fit of the jacket and of the trousers is poor. Looking at Sartorialist photos trains the eye to want to see good fit!
October 6, 2009 at 7:50 am
I am always blown away by the details you notice and subsequently capture beautifully in photos.
October 6, 2009 at 7:54 am
I'm fascinated by the turned collar on the jacket. I always wonder what men are thinking when they manipulate their clothing in this kind of way. I suspect this was a 'cool' thing to do.
October 6, 2009 at 7:57 am
Funky to the max~!
October 6, 2009 at 8:09 am
crazy and i think i like it!
October 6, 2009 at 8:43 am
October 6, 2009 at 8:49 am
Crazy, but it works overall. None of the checks work together but somehow he pulls its off and produces a stylish if not particularly elegant effect. It's hovering on the line between stylish and slightly clownish but I have to say he stays just on the right side. I'm all for mixing checks but if you are like the rest of us you really need to vary the size and patterns. Glen check pants/houndstooth socks to give a very simple and obvious example.
October 6, 2009 at 8:54 am
DISTINGUISHED!! One of the best.
October 6, 2009 at 9:50 am
What a clever mix, loved everything from the hat to the glasses to the coat, and even the beard. The watch is uniquely pleasant, only thing that is a miss is the white handkerchief on his pocket being too big. Love this site

I wish I was a fly on the wall when he put this together for the first time and that lightbulb went off over his head. Looks great.
October 6, 2009 at 10:30 am
i see this guy on my bus some mornings here in london and he looks amazing every time – will have to say something to him next time i see him, to compliment him on making it onto this blog.

October 6, 2009 at 10:42 am
wow!! I can't believe how much I actually like this!?! fabulous!
October 6, 2009 at 10:58 am
perfect mix. and he has fantastic nails, which is a nice little complement.
When I scrolled down and saw "Mixed plaids…" title, my morning breakfast started to come up in my throat a bit. But after scrolling down to the photo, he looks sooo cool. Not many people could pull this off, but he does!
October 6, 2009 at 10:59 am
October 6, 2009 at 11:08 am
I would emphasise the neck scarf with yet another pattern even more and get the solid color hat. But it's just me.
October 6, 2009 at 11:10 am
As several people have pointed out, this is the same plaid which doesn't make it that hard to tell that it could all go together. But just because you can, doesn't mean you should! Too jacked up on accessories and LOOK AT ME. I vote no.
October 6, 2009 at 11:12 am
Love the mix!
Cool optical frames.
October 6, 2009 at 11:22 am
so subtle – gorgeous shade of green – altogether very dapper….
October 6, 2009 at 11:33 am
October 6, 2009 at 11:37 am
Some smooth style here, there is a reason why Satorialists shot him and i see the reason, a unique blend of elegance.
October 6, 2009 at 11:41 am
October 6, 2009 at 11:51 am
This outfit is definitely not for everyone. Can you imagine the gentle in the left (background) wearing this outfit? He will look like a clown.This guy wear it with such confidence……..wear what suits you..well, i guess we need to know what suits us.

favourite look of the week! amazing.How is he doing that!?
October 6, 2009 at 2:12 pm
thank you god for 'doing' these people and thank you for photograph them!
October 6, 2009 at 2:30 pm
The green in the jacket is so beautiful. It's a color a lot of guys won't wear/buy. The mix is bold, but it's one of those "certain city", "certain look", "certain age" kind of looks that doesn't work on everyone. He pulls it off with a lot of panache.
October 6, 2009 at 2:35 pm
I love plaid!
October 6, 2009 at 3:49 pm
I love it that you also photographed the details.
October 6, 2009 at 5:21 pm
"thank you god for 'doing' these people and thank you for photograph them!"
mwaaahahahahaa and thank you God for before thee I were blind. Scott, you've made God status for some, it seems.

I love the plaid it goes incredibly well. The dark green is a great colour

Different, but a good different. It looks effortless. Very classic.
October 6, 2009 at 8:10 pm
FANTASTIC!! Guy has taken traditional items and patterns. mixed them up, accessorized them, and made them hypster cool.
Great contrast to the very BCBG Paris gentleman in tweeds.

The hat makes it work.
But he should lose the beard.
October 8, 2009 at 11:09 am
I am loving this mix.
October 9, 2009 at 4:00 am
Very obviously an urban take on a 'country' look, so too contrived for me. The juice for me in 'authentic country' looks is in the shoes, socks, bags, scarves. So the lack of detail means I am unable to feel this guys look.
October 12, 2009 at 7:19 am
Yes, this is what i was talking about. authentic fashionista is back.
October 15, 2009 at 1:30 am
Love the mix…always good to mix anything up, limitless!!

October 28, 2012 at 7:19 am
This is a look I’ve seen now and again in London (beard included).
You could call it a ‘Monk-like’ or ‘Thelonius-ish’ style ?
These gentlemen are lone hunters, and can often be spotted, lurking at the back, rarely ever speaking but looking cool, in jazz clubs or off beat, boho cafes where jazz is a staple ingredient of the incidental background mixtapes.
