I love the jacket! I want his bag for sure!!! Rock on man!!! :) It works because the pants are not super bold.
August 28, 2009 at 9:01 am
This is awesome. The jacket's pattern is so subtle yet very basic looking.
Aaa, his jacket is fantastic! Love it.
Peace and love!
August 28, 2009 at 9:04 am
The croc bag really makes the jacket sing!
the prints are making my eyeballs blend everything together into a grey blob. but it all looks really good
August 28, 2009 at 9:05 am
very elegant colors. tie maybe a bit too long, but still ok.
the jacket: in itself, it's a nice jacket, but the pattern doesn't fit his style. he appears disguised with it, and not at ease.
two more things: the jackt sleeves are too long, and the pochette should have a lighter fabric (see the bulge?)
August 28, 2009 at 9:08 am
Good god, I love that blazer! Normally I don't like prints other than plaids, tweeds and the like but this just rocks! I also love how he keeps it in one color family too, something I plan on doing more in the fall
August 28, 2009 at 9:14 am
Nice to see the knitted tie make a comeback.
August 28, 2009 at 9:21 am
Never liked straight cut ties!Doesn't really matter here, cause the rest outshines the tie!
August 28, 2009 at 9:29 am
This is my first comment on a photo of yours and I have been following for a very long time – This guy is one upping everyone and everything – pattern mix, color combinations, tie, then throwing everyone out the window with the large alligator folder and vintage frames. Would have loved to see his shoes and cropping of the pants. Sharp, well planned, light, calm, and classy.

That man exudes a confidence I usually only see in women. Is it weird that I want to be like him??
August 28, 2009 at 9:33 am
*THAT'S INCREDIBLE! It looks quite 60's…*
August 28, 2009 at 9:38 am
What a gorgeous jacket! And so well coordinated with the tie and pants. The white handkerchief in his breast pocket adds another dimension to the jacket. A very nice photograph, with the man framed by the green landscaping in the background, and a touch of color coordinated sidewalk.

Thanks doll,The Glamorous Housewife
August 28, 2009 at 9:50 am
Could the jacket be from Kamoshita?
August 28, 2009 at 9:55 am
The only thing I see is that GORGEOUS chocolate crocodile bag! YUMMMM! I do like his blazer- the print is very ethnic, but still modern.
But what is up with his tie? The cut at the bottom is very sloppy. I have never seen a tie like this and I must say I don't like it.

August 28, 2009 at 10:03 am
The best part is the crocodile bag, it's colour and texture are amazing!
August 28, 2009 at 10:06 am
The jacket reminds me of a polyester double knit suit my father wore in the early 1970's… it was far from being his best suit purchase. In summary, this jacket rubs me the wrong way.
His portfolio clutch – amazing! Any leads as to where I may find one of that size? I've been looking for some time to no avail.
August 28, 2009 at 10:10 am
Strong look… Nice mix of Fabrics and Patterns. Really like the croc bag. Great style well done.
August 28, 2009 at 10:11 am
I just wanted to share my observation that Asian men tend not to associate their sense of style and fashion with their masculinity (or lack of). To them (us – yes I am of asian descent) its a form of freedom of expression and feeling good about one's self.
This gentleman definitely says it all with his expression, smile and stance – oh and of course his choice of garb for the day!!!
Gotta love that grey!
His look is an absolute wow!the use of patterns and colors is so elegant
August 28, 2009 at 10:12 am
its very hard to make a suit look light and fresh, but this guy has done it so well….love his bag too!
August 28, 2009 at 10:35 am
Some people just know how to do it. Who woulda thought you could mix these kinds of patterns and yet everything is in perfect harmony. Green with envy I am.
August 28, 2009 at 10:37 am
great style- Very Dries Van Noten… the casual yet perfect mix of patterns !
August 28, 2009 at 10:41 am
everything about this man is so cool and eccentric at the same time! from the very 'now' glasses, to the retro-print jacket, to the BAG and tie and pants!!
August 28, 2009 at 10:42 am
What a a great silhouette, everything is nice: from the jacket to the pants & accessories…
Someone can ask him to send me his jacket, this is for me real pure love!!!
August 28, 2009 at 10:52 am
Love it. My man is doin' some good work here. The patterns are bold but the colors are subtle. Something tells me it fits his personality to a T.
August 28, 2009 at 10:55 am
can we add the texture of the tie and the atache also?! Brilliant combos!
August 28, 2009 at 10:58 am
I don't think so! Not so much for the pattern mix, but color tones of jacket/pants just don't do it for me. Angela in Victoria

Ouch tread carefully, the jacket is such a strong statement that I would do everything else very plain. I love that croc attache!!! Jorge from WPB
August 28, 2009 at 11:25 am
Dude is killing it right here. That jacket is amazing. The tie really ties it all together in all seriousness.
August 28, 2009 at 11:30 am
WOW, this is not very 'PETA' of me, but that bag makes me salivate, the color and texture are both so rich, it is amazing. oh yeah, and nice jacket :o)
August 28, 2009 at 11:31 am
amazing… the jacket is awsome!
August 28, 2009 at 11:37 am
Oh Yeah!!! His look is fabulous…I love the whole ensemble!!!
August 28, 2009 at 11:50 am
ah yes, far more successful than the pattern mix of the young lady. the patterns weren't bad but I found the overall look really sloppy. scott, you often ask us gals what we think of X or Y on a guy….I'd like to ask guys: do you really find it attractive to see a bra peering out of a garment that was not meant to feature the bra? Or do find it sloppy? Let's not get into whether she's a babe or not; just the general sartorial aesthetic. thanks!–haapi

HEUNG JUH BAEK!!
August 28, 2009 at 11:58 am
love the knitted tie, especially the bottom of it – and love the simple shirt too.
jacket is exquisite even if the sleeves are a little long.
August 28, 2009 at 11:59 am
I wish I could go back in time and go shopping with him when he bought this. Did he say, "YES, I WANT IT?" or did he try it on a bunch of times and hesitate and finally give in. Or did he have it made to order? I think he looks like a designer or architect so he probably had it made.
August 28, 2009 at 12:06 pm
A great look!

The jacket is beautiful – looks vintage…..? Love the slacks with it. The whole things suits him perfectly. Stylish!!!
August 28, 2009 at 12:43 pm
I love each piece individually, but together – they hurt my head. Maybe there's something I can take for it.
The pattern on his jacket is nice but his bag just makes everything whole to me!
I love this jacket!
August 28, 2009 at 12:49 pm
his clutch is great, and works really well with that vintage square tie and beautiful jacket.
August 28, 2009 at 12:55 pm
I LOVE THIS GUY! He always looks so suave.
August 28, 2009 at 12:56 pm
this guy rules! great individual pieces! great combination! very inspiring!
Umm … can we talk about how maybe I wish I had that jacket to rock with? I LOVE IT!
Why doesn't every man take style pointers from him? Let's not forget his bag too. A.m.a.z.i.n.g.

I love his…man clutch? Is there really a word for that? His bag? Either way, I love absolutely everything about this. I want that bag too!
August 28, 2009 at 1:43 pm
Great look! I really like the patterned jacket.
August 28, 2009 at 1:45 pm
Lovely! And he works it wonderfully.
August 28, 2009 at 2:10 pm
Bag is so exellent!
August 28, 2009 at 2:15 pm
I don't know what I think about the clothes (can't decide, actually!), but I think this man could carry almost any outfit. Just look at that facial expression! :)
August 28, 2009 at 2:53 pm
Casual yet dapper, and the croc carrying case seals the deal.
His `clutch´is great ; would look even greater if his suit were different.
August 28, 2009 at 3:05 pm
It's amazing how we men with a little bit of effort could pull off a flawless outfit. This young proves that a good mix of fabrics and materials earns the gold star.
August 28, 2009 at 3:08 pm
Despit the jacket pattern, what really catches my eye is the tie and the bag. It breaks up the image in a complimenting way to the rest of his wear.
I did not however notice the pocket unit Marquis had mentioned and do agree in the suggestion of a change. But maybe not particularly to the color. I think the kerchief could be done in the appropriate size to create less bulge.
August 28, 2009 at 3:17 pm
love it! so great the tie just brings it to another level!
follow Nikky Zee on twitter!
August 28, 2009 at 3:40 pm
I absolutely love his jacket! Very quirky and fun and he wears it very well.
August 28, 2009 at 4:11 pm
That jacket is pretty amazing!
He could have come straight out of a Billy Wilder movie. Awesome!
August 28, 2009 at 4:19 pm
The mixed pattern size between the jacket and trousers works really well; however, the tie is not adding value. I love knit ties but while this tie is a solid the texture of the weave creates the effect of a small pattern, which clashes with the small patern of the trousers. I feel that a silk tie of the same color would have worked better for this fine chap.
August 28, 2009 at 4:48 pm
wow, so beautiful. confident, smart, manly. I used to think men's clothes were boring, poor things, until I started following your photos!
August 28, 2009 at 5:14 pm
Hello Mr. Whoever!
I salute you!
This is awesome
August 28, 2009 at 5:18 pm
thats so cool, wish my b-friend would look like him;) love the way he mix and match jacket, bag and trousers.
August 28, 2009 at 5:27 pm
never seen a jacket like that! awesome
August 28, 2009 at 5:28 pm
I love the patterns. But his use of the deep brown textured clutch and the old school tie also make the outfit splendid.
August 28, 2009 at 5:42 pm
I love the play of textures and shades here, the greys and whites and then that bag is just amazing I want one!
August 28, 2009 at 5:47 pm
Wow, the man with the beautiful crocodile bag is bag and looking great. He really has a love for and a knack for mixing patterns and gets it right. I want to know who he is because he definitely has elegance and style. I hope to continue seeing him.
August 28, 2009 at 6:01 pm
Love the bag! Want it.

I love the whole look! I think his glasses really add something to it. Like a little hint of nerdy to go with his sophistication. You didn't mention the tie! The texture of the tie totally plays off the jacket. I really am loving this look, along with the slim sleeves.
August 28, 2009 at 8:22 pm
nice glasses ;)
August 28, 2009 at 8:27 pm

August 28, 2009 at 8:43 pm
Wow, there's so much going on; the great bag (texture and colour), the retro styled jacket and the knit tie and pants. Not really my look as I am more conservative, but I really appreciate what's he's done.
August 28, 2009 at 11:33 pm
It is quite fetching, but I've got a problem with suits in the summertime. Sure you've got to look business-like at times, but isn't there a better solution than a jacket? Makes me uncomfortable just looking at it. He looks cool, but that can't last all day.
August 28, 2009 at 11:38 pm
I love the color palette it makes all the wonderful patterns work! I really like the tie and the slightly funky glasses. ;)
August 29, 2009 at 12:05 am
He rocks! I wonder what his wife thinks?
August 29, 2009 at 2:25 am
I SO would steal that jacket if he was my husband !! LOVE IT to bits !And look at that croc-print briefcase…makes his look instantly more edgy, no ?
August 29, 2009 at 4:49 am
Some people, as we know, are color blind.
Now it is becoming clear to me that others are pattern blind.
August 29, 2009 at 4:55 am
Great great jacket, but honestly: how many times can one pull it off without becoming the guy wearing "that jacket" again…
August 29, 2009 at 6:17 am
I'd love a jacket like that one, the pattern is adorable.
Graham I. Haynes
August 29, 2009 at 6:55 am
Someone made a good point ~ the shoes are crucial. The bag is too chichi if it doesn't match the shoes somehow.
Notwithstanding some choice footwear, this chap is wearing one novel item too many!
(but definitely blogworthy… thank you :)
August 29, 2009 at 7:05 am
wow great jacket, you rock
August 29, 2009 at 7:49 am
mad for this!
August 29, 2009 at 8:26 am
The bag/ckutch is vintage and beautiful!
August 29, 2009 at 9:31 am
Ugh, I am in love with this. If my professors dressed like this everyday, I would never miss a class. Haha
August 29, 2009 at 9:34 am
The pattern on his jacket is very different..and I love love love his glasses.
August 29, 2009 at 9:36 am
he looks so fresh and cool…the very essence of summer. this makes me smile.
August 29, 2009 at 9:38 am
I love this pattern mix.Inusual and great
August 29, 2009 at 10:14 am
Oh I am dying I love him!!!! confident and elegant x x
August 29, 2009 at 11:59 am
outstanding combination, and expertly done. also that large croco clutch is pretty great too.
August 29, 2009 at 12:41 pm
I like it. Different in a good, understated way. A good casual combination, the knit square end tie and the jacket's pattern and patched pockets go good together.
Also, look at the immaculate matching of the pattern on the pockets and at the arm shoulder area of the jacket!
August 29, 2009 at 12:52 pm
lovin that bag!
August 29, 2009 at 1:32 pm
What about that bag? The whole combo is very bold, indeed. He looks great!
August 29, 2009 at 1:57 pm
Whether or not you like this outfit, don't we all want to meet this man! Can't you tell he's fun, light hearted, creative, delightful and likely a great conversationalist!
I can. To quote another commenter- Go Guy!
August 29, 2009 at 1:59 pm
the knitted tie is from Amerian Apparel :)

nice use of different patterns and texture. the grey is definitely a choice colour for this season..
August 29, 2009 at 9:05 pm
Now thats a good bag. Looks pretty pricey, though.
August 29, 2009 at 11:26 pm
Love that jacket! Not sure about the knit tie, but the pattern mix between the jacket and trousers works for me.
August 30, 2009 at 4:33 am
he looks like a boss tht i wna work f!!! :)
August 30, 2009 at 6:27 am

August 30, 2009 at 1:37 pm

August 30, 2009 at 2:05 pm
This is Haute !!
August 30, 2009 at 5:32 pm
Great pattern matching. Doc Severinson should be jealous of this man's jacket.
I envy people with the cojones to pull off something like this.
August 30, 2009 at 6:20 pm
Bold would be the murse he is carrying. It doesn't match at all even though I know he's trying to do matchy matchy accessories with his glasses. Too much for me.

August 30, 2009 at 11:52 pm
Nice pants… but I have to desagree on the jacket… Sorry!
August 30, 2009 at 11:55 pm
Love the tie!
August 31, 2009 at 12:09 am
A mix of patterns and he actually made it work! Love the confidence!
August 31, 2009 at 1:39 am
Fantastic jacket! He looks amazing.
August 31, 2009 at 5:24 am
i think i saw this jacket a london oxford street h&m… the trousers, though, are even cooler.
August 31, 2009 at 6:43 am
I love this look! All his pieces individually look like great pieces i.e. his jacket, shirt, tie, pants, bag and are all of the same tonal palette which is why it works so well when they are all used together.
August 31, 2009 at 7:46 am
this just looks amazing! I love the bag.
August 31, 2009 at 10:48 am
sorry to disagree but im just not into the jacket or the bag. everything else A+ for me.

August 31, 2009 at 7:51 pm
There are looks like this where you notice where you notice the patterns seperately as unique pieces but then as you take a look at the whole ensemble and it's a whole other thing. I like the juxtapositioning of the patterns.
August 31, 2009 at 9:10 pm
That bag is to DIE for, and I really like the pattern of his blazer.
September 1, 2009 at 7:04 am
Such a suave gent! I love his jacket.
September 2, 2009 at 12:04 am
love the outfit. the jacket definitely has an amazing design. the pants are my favorite thing though. not a fan of the tie. i like the pattern, but the style of it (flat end) is funny looking)
September 4, 2009 at 2:59 am
Could anybody please tell me where I can get a bag like that from?Thanks
September 5, 2009 at 11:32 am
Does anyone know which tailor (or perhaps shop, although it looks bespoke) the blazer if from? If so please post.
Overall great look, not my absolute favourite tie for this look but it works, and the bag is great in the look, perhaps not so great outside of it.

It seems like each piece of his outfit fits simultaneously together. The Crocodile brief case accentuates his use of light blues and teals. I really appreciate his use of colors and taste.
