awesome, the helmet is tops TOPS.
July 29, 2009 at 9:42 am
Oh! That's amazing!
July 29, 2009 at 9:44 am
Very interesting look, though I think its more of a statement than a wearable outfit. The double-breasted jacket makes the whole look a little top-heavy for my liking, but the overall palette is nice.
July 29, 2009 at 9:46 am
great jacket…love the hair.
July 29, 2009 at 9:48 am
I'm loving the sunglasses…
And I love the shorts, too!!
July 29, 2009 at 9:52 am
I think it'll take a looong time until I get used to these short men-shorts. Ugh.
His color coordinated outfit is great! He has nice legs. Is it his hair that makes me think of Michael Jackson?
July 29, 2009 at 9:54 am
That blazer is great, has a bit of a 60's mod feel and that bowtie is fabulous but either he hikes the sleeve up on the shirt or lengthen the blazer sleeves. Awesome look nonetheless…..
July 29, 2009 at 9:55 am
Quirky! Although I'm not quite convinced by the style of the shoes…
I'm a mean street kid.
haha so cute
July 29, 2009 at 9:57 am
he looks awesome
July 29, 2009 at 9:58 am
Wow! It's been a while since I've seen an outfit that has captured me immediately like this one does. The blue-brown coulour scheme is unusual but brilliantly executed. The Italian sence of sprezzatura completes an already perfect outfit. Again: wow.I.A. from http://blogspot.com/style4guys
I want to be more open-minded, but the bow tie just puts this over the top for me.
the F word
July 29, 2009 at 9:59 am
that jacket is amazing but he doesnt really do those shorts justice maybe if they were an inch or two longer he would
July 29, 2009 at 10:02 am
Mmmm… Well… At least, this one did not shave his legs!
July 29, 2009 at 10:07 am
Wow how did he get his hair looking so good just after taking his helmet off? I need to find a water fountain for a quick rinsie… HaHa Great shot Scott.P.S. Helmet laws kind of stink!
July 29, 2009 at 10:09 am
Hee looks great and all but it's a little on the cartoon character side. It just isn't a very practical summer look.
I mean, if it's hot enough outside to wear those shorts, that DB jacket and the shirt + bowtie just make me sweat thinking about them. this could have worked without the jacket, sleeves neatly rolled or without the bowtie + a linen jacket
July 29, 2009 at 10:15 am
So casual-dapper, Im not usually a fan of bowties but he looks ace xhttp://fashionpearlsofwisdom.blogspot.com/
July 29, 2009 at 10:18 am
fantastic! the pose and his stance are amazing too
July 29, 2009 at 10:20 am
I think the bow tie is a little too much. For me, either he gets rid of the bow tie or gets slightly longer shorts.

amateurs need not apply…this guy is a professional. the fact he wore that while riding a scooter in just makes it all the more fantastic.
July 29, 2009 at 10:24 am
he looks very cool. love the shorts!
COOL !Love his hair
July 29, 2009 at 10:32 am
this looks unreal, i could never pull it off..especially in england
July 29, 2009 at 10:33 am
That is one of the coolest things I've ever seen in my life.
July 29, 2009 at 10:34 am
I love the blazer he's wearing. it's bold, edgy, but still classy.
July 29, 2009 at 10:35 am
That guy, that style !!!

He may be the only person in the world to get away with this. Great colour scheme. Although technically speaking, the jacket is terrible.

completely eye catching and a statement look! men just don't dress like that here in the states.
July 29, 2009 at 11:46 am
I'm in love!…with his outfit that is.
July 29, 2009 at 11:54 am
the look i'm trying to go for. the jacket, tie, shirt, sunglasses, shorts, and loafers…UGH FOR AMAZING!
July 29, 2009 at 11:57 am
Black shadow on ground,helmet,buttons:add an air of grown-up.
July 29, 2009 at 12:02 pm
I love the colours but honestly I'm really not a fan of shorts. Call me old fashioned but shorts are for little boys. When you grow up you should act and dress like a man. Wear shorts on the weekend or at home, I sure do, but as part of a suit? I don't think it's fashion forward I think it's fashion regressive. Let's grow up here.
July 29, 2009 at 12:04 pm
Pee Wee Herman comes to mind. . .I love that he seems so fearless and invincible in this outfit–very cute
there is something funny about the hem of the shorts…they remind me of when my mom would make my long pants into shorts as a kid. The hem would always be a little too narrow. The jacket cuffs need like a 1/4 inch more.
I LERV this outfit though, and he wears it so well. I love the shirt collar. Also, he is one of the few men who can wear short shorts with those hairy legs and make it look good!

I agree with anon at 9:44 in that this is "more of a statement than a wearable outfit." His color choices are great and I quite enjoy the peak lapels/bow tie combination, but I can not get over the length of the shorts stripping much of the masculinity from his look.
July 29, 2009 at 12:15 pm
A shame that this outfit feels disjointed or disproportional because everything else, especially the color palette, is perfection.
extraordinary, that is good!
July 29, 2009 at 12:17 pm
Love this! Its quite the interesting take on the classic super preppy look!
July 29, 2009 at 12:18 pm
I love the jacket and nice picture!

Love the outfit and the hair. I have to say I don't think he has the most beautiful legs but who am I to judge. On the other hand my legs are similar but I never wear shorts.
July 29, 2009 at 12:50 pm
This is STYLE to the max~!It is how own~!It is just so fine~!
July 29, 2009 at 12:52 pm
It makes me wish for Florence…If only I see this look in Okla.
July 29, 2009 at 12:56 pm
love love loveThis is awesome! I especially love the colors. Personally, I think the bowtie is PERFECT.
July 29, 2009 at 1:02 pm
i love this. but maybe more so if he opened the jacket …
helmet is ace. i alternate between an all-black downhill ski one and an equestrian helmet myself.
July 29, 2009 at 1:12 pm
I think I prefer it with long trousers, but I love the colors, the clothes… It's really great.
July 29, 2009 at 1:21 pm
Wowza. Just wowza!
July 29, 2009 at 1:25 pm
First of all the look is AWESOME !
But dude if you know you're gonna or wanna wear this outfit buy the right shoes.
July 29, 2009 at 1:27 pm
it is great that youth corrects all/most things. he can wear a unique jacket and attack with that item while other issues are suspect. shorts are too short, jacket sleeves too short, shirt sleeves too long. but, he still looks "intersting"

July 29, 2009 at 2:21 pm
i agree with some of the others, the colors are fab, the outfit is top-heavy, the shorts are too tight and short to work with the jacket and on my own here…what happened with the shoes? oxfords, bucks or loafers and please with such an intentional getup have the helmet be as serious or starkly contrast.
i admire the effort.
stripes stripesand shorts!love guys with swimming shorts in the city!
July 29, 2009 at 2:23 pm
Only someone from Firenze can make this look so casually cool! Love the colors
July 29, 2009 at 2:28 pm
Incredible! This is just too astounding! He nailed it! I am practically speechless right now due to this guys amazing ensemble! I love the length of the shorts and the fact he is wearing boat shoes…sock-less! He has the dark blazer to match and then the lighter color blue for the shirt and then the burgundy bow tie! He adds the extra cool twist with his aviators! AMAZING! check out my trendy blog!http://thetrendydwarf.blogspot.com/

Love the colors, but I'm not a big fan of bow ties. Although I'm not sure if the look would work with out it either.

Funny outfit ^^

July 29, 2009 at 3:52 pm
I love the bow tie and the stripes :) that burgundy/maroon colour is also one of my favourites
July 29, 2009 at 3:58 pm
I have been sure about jackets/ties with shorts, it always seems quite school boy. But this looks fantastic, he really pulls this look off! Lovely jacket and tie choice!
July 29, 2009 at 4:06 pm
Impeccable Italian tailoring. With helmet in hand, I'm guessing he rides a Vespa. Imagine that outfit on a Vespa, so chic!
July 29, 2009 at 4:07 pm
I love stripes, bricks, his panache and this photo.
July 29, 2009 at 4:18 pm
i love boys in shorts!!!
July 29, 2009 at 4:33 pm
The bowtie may be too much? Even though it's going very well with the rest colour-wise, it still seems a bit out of place.
July 29, 2009 at 5:05 pm
July 29, 2009 at 5:10 pm
Um, hell yes.
I love how he didn't button the inner button of his DB jacket. Thats something which you don't see too much anymore and I think its a nice throwback.
This is a really great idea, but I think if I were wearing this look, I'd pick a jacket and shorts combo which had more color contrast.
July 29, 2009 at 5:21 pm
July 29, 2009 at 5:45 pm
He needs longer pants, at least ankle length, and dressier shoes. I think the colors and accessories are great; the jacket cut is fab, along with the big hair and the aviator sunglasses. Great!!
July 29, 2009 at 5:57 pm
Splendid! Best pic of this blog, to me.The real modern dandy, one cannot not to see him but this is classy. And the man is truly sexy which helps to be so good looking.
July 29, 2009 at 6:05 pm
July 29, 2009 at 6:49 pm
You may call me conservative but I still find hard to understand how a grown up man can wear shorts.
I allow myself wearing it only in two occasions: while practising sports or at the beach.
July 29, 2009 at 7:09 pm
Oh wow j'adore his blazer.

I dig everything… EXCEPT for the shorts.
July 30, 2009 at 1:49 am
The pictures was loading… I loved the clothes he was wearing, but when I looked the short… my god rsrs I was surprised! but cool!
See my blog!
July 30, 2009 at 2:05 am
The proportions are a bit odd. The cut of the double-breasted jacket flares out and with the too short shorts it's not all that flattering.
But the bow tie, glasses, and attitude are stunning.
July 30, 2009 at 3:31 am
Well, kudos for courage but I honestly think he looks just silly.

Looks really SILLY. If it is warm enough to wear short shorts, then the long sleeved shirt, blazer, and bow tie are completely out of place. All the elements are great separatedly, but together… trying too hard, and it shows.
July 30, 2009 at 7:42 am
The shorts are too short….I left this comment yesterday and it did not get printed????????

He looks like a figure from a childrens' book I had when I was a kid, so that's cool! Otherwise, no.
July 30, 2009 at 8:41 am
Tone this down to biege and replace the boatshoes with oxfords and you'd have what a lot of cats were rocking in Harajuku when I was there a month ago. I like this over the top version too, though i don't love the shoes.
It's a dapper summer look, no need to hate on the shorts babies.
July 30, 2009 at 9:23 am
The clothes are great. However, I would not ride a motorcycle in them, "road rash" and other potential issues with the shorts.
July 30, 2009 at 9:54 am

July 30, 2009 at 10:23 am
Damn! his legs´ shape is like mine!!!I miss some 10 cm to the shorts.If he wants to win some attention this is the perfect outfit, otherwise the practical factor is 0
July 30, 2009 at 10:41 am
he looks like a little doll. i wouldnt be attracted to this kind of person/look but he tries and thats all that matters!
July 30, 2009 at 11:27 am
Like the guy with the multi-striped outfit earlier this week, it's all great until you get below the waist. Those shorts aren't happening. He really doesn't have the legs for, but even is he did, it's just too precious.
July 30, 2009 at 12:17 pm
I love how the young fashionistas are reworking and updating the trad items in really stylish and playful ways.

July 30, 2009 at 2:47 pm
Definitely a statement, The shorts may be a tad short for my taste, though.
July 30, 2009 at 3:05 pm
love the jacket, but men seriously need to stop wearing shorts. immediately. no one wants to see your hairy stems.
July 30, 2009 at 3:10 pm

great looks: from the waist upand from the waist down
July 30, 2009 at 7:44 pm
uhhh – NO. maybe if you are under 10 years old.
July 30, 2009 at 7:51 pm
how much cuter could this be if he took the DB off amd rolled up the sleeves on his shirt?i like how his bow tie reflects the color of his shoes and ties the whole outfit together.
July 30, 2009 at 9:24 pm
can't say I'm a fan.
I think this may be one of my least favorites of your shots.
the colors are good; the idea is there; but the proportions are all wrong.
Perhaps if the shorts were a bit longer and the jacket sleeves were a tad longer (or pushed up), this might work.
Bow tie is a tad over the top but might still work if the other components were fixed.

at first I thought it was helmet hair, then it dawned on me that it must be from a fashion shoot! i am with CW at 9.23 about the potential "road rash"… leathers please.
July 31, 2009 at 12:40 am
this outfit is amazing. anyone whos says anything bad…..other than the shoes issue is a complete douche.. as Eddie would say this is the best costume for the day !
July 31, 2009 at 1:08 am

when i first saw this i was like, WOW, it is one of those up in your face outfits. Nonethese, I ADORE the blazer and the bowtie, if the gentleman was selling them (in a different size obviously LOL), i would be reaching for my wallet in no time. I'm not incredibly fond of the shoes, they're look a bit chuncky for my taste, but maybe the rough factor of the shoes goes with the wild hair. Anyways, i feel the whole outfit protrudes so much character that it's useless to mingle over final details :)
July 31, 2009 at 12:41 pm
Eye catching, indeed. Feels too forced, though.
The shorts, I keep thinking they're boxers and he misplaced his pants. Perhaps it's the length.

Love everything except the shorts.
July 31, 2009 at 7:45 pm
This guy looks superb!
He obviously doesn't play by "the rules." Anyone who can wear this and pull it off with such confidence shows true style. I personally can't find much wrong with what he is wearing. I think sometimes we get to caught up in rules or ourselves to truly appreciate life.
August 1, 2009 at 2:40 am
Ludicrous. All that's missing is a straw boater with streamers. And perhaps an oversized lollipop.

The upper half is going to a high school reunion, the bottom half is going to the pool…The dispute is not going to be easily resolved.Xavier

I laughed when I saw this shot. He is not pulling this off well. The proportion is all wrong, so top heavy, with tiny little pin legs sticking out.

I know y'all think that he's pretty stylin', but sorry, that's just plain WRONG. (my humble opinion, of course)
August 2, 2009 at 11:37 am
i dont get it, if your wearing shorts, its gotta be pretty warm, so to pair it with a blazer and button down just seems rather backwards.
dudes gotta make up his mind.
solid shoes though

bowtie is overkill with shorts, but it's still a great, fun outfit!
August 4, 2009 at 4:53 pm
A child wearing a child's outfit — anyone under the age of 17 should not attempt this look.
August 4, 2009 at 6:46 pm
He looks like an extra from Rushmore. Kind of wonderful and creepy at the same time.
August 4, 2009 at 8:36 pm
A lot of you, particularly the older more conservative crowd (which is like 80% of Sart. commenters)don't seem to get whats going on here. It's supposed to be a play on proportions.The short jacket sleeves are an absolute necessity, as are the shorts. I wasn't feeling the shoes initially, but their weight contrast well with the shorts to once again play on this idea of proportions, which is why his legs look odd (which adds to the outfit).
The hair and glasses look lame though. If he had a cooler haircut it would make him seem like he was more aware of the exaggerated proportions and would make him seem less like a comic book character, unaware of his own absurdity.
Oh, and it wouldn't work without the bowtie wither. It makes it a lot look less serious, which is true to it all, and seems to transplant a bit of the character of the bottom half of the outfit into the top, making it seem less like he has just put on two entirely different outfits.
PS: It's clearly maroon, not brown, not that unusual of a palette.
Oh, and ditch the helmet.
August 5, 2009 at 11:51 pm
i love this look- formal yet funny almost. i almost feel myself blush at the image- "nice knickers, now where's your pants?"
August 7, 2009 at 9:38 am
with that helment in his hand it's oviously he was in a motorbike, i would like to dress like that and be in my motorbike at the same time lol….
April 6, 2010 at 5:10 am
I think he look hilarious!
