      yes, although it does remind of archaeologists digging for artefacts. That’s what I think of when I see this.

    Urban monk! Nice detail in the pockets.

    This is one of those shots I probably would’ve have looked twice at on the street. But on further inspection I like how he took, possibly otherwise ill-looking cargos and made them interesting. This is one of those subtle times when fashion has reason.

    Aaack! I absolutely love his pants with the studded pocket flaps, and I love the way he’s got them hiked up like that. This is truly awesome, and so simple. Great shot!

    You know…I actually kind of like that. It shouldn’t work and yet it does. A big, loose white shirt is hard to mess up on a masculine man. I’d have a drink with him. :)

    I want those pants right now- love them.The shirt and bag are perfect with them. He looks so comfortable and chic. Love the shadow of he leaves on he sidewalk.

    Love your photos, I’m buying your book

    I really like the neckless white shirt. It’s pretty cool!

    NO! flip flops in the city is just nasty.

    It’s different, but doesn’t do it for me once you get below the knee… Flip flops just aren’t a good look for men unless they’re at the beach. The extra short hem on the pants are for clam digging not fashion IMO.

      I doubt he is on his way to a job interview.
      I suspect he would prefer to be barefoot, but wore flipflops to protect the soles of his (immaculate) feet.
      Rolling or hiking up pants to expose your ankles is very cooling on a hot day.
      I see clean, fresh, comfortable, appropriate.
      Few men look this good on their best day!

    Fabulous. Casual chic at its best

    Interesting pants with the white shirt and a kaki green bag. I would wear everything myself (minus the flip flops) and I’m a woman !
    I have a distinct liking of men’s clothes, especially linen.

    I like the shirt. Not so keen on the pants. Then I got to the flip-flops and it was over. There’s no beach in sight. Any shoe but those!

    Simple, fresh, cool and easy. More being a man of a certain age.

      I agree–the ruched pants are fresh and interesting, but they have a simplicity and quiet dignity that befit his overall persona. And in response to the flip-flop scolds I’d say that with this outfit, his shoes are just right.

        Flip-flops worn by men beyond the borders of a beach or a pool, or one’s bathroom, are never appropriate. That is a well known law of physics – Newton’s First law of Footwear for Efficient Motion – and style. There is no reason to wear them whatsoever, dynamic or stylistic. A pair of simple loafers, boatshoes, mocassins is just as easy to get into and out of and makes for brisker and more comfortable walking and running.

          Oh, please. Get over the flip flop condemnation. One of the best things about dressing, is fun. And warmer months are a great opportunity to really relax your look.
          Yes, while I agree that wearing thongs (as we call them in Australia – not to be confused with underwear) in the city can lead to slightly grubby toes at the end of the day. But what the hell. Live a little.

    When you have those shoulders and those arms, why hide them?

    What a cool, simple shot! The man looks so innocent and busy on his own! I love his white shirt. Fits him well with that side pocket funny designed trouser!

    He looks so modern, simple and he’s got stylish pants. Love that fact!

    He is very serious, but all the same, he is looking good.

    Perfect combo – studs and cargos!

    Good style, nice pants, original cut, like always, love your men shots. And I’m a big fan of flip flop, only if they’re not too “big” ; I like how they show the skin and the structure of the foot/leg, team flip flop.

    Perfection. Epitome of casual cool without even a hint of trying to hard.

    Those pants look like Mason’s. Italian, best pants in the world, for celebrities and athletes, business people, etc. wish I could afford them!

    White and khaki always looks so fresh.

    this appears to be the same dude who got so many comments on the patterned shorts and casual shirt and again in another photo with the bright blue bathrobe type jacket whilst in Milan. Which would explain the Mason comment above.

    Although I understand flip flops is part of the ‘charm’/'style’/groove of his look: No matter what the person wears on top, wearing flip flops (especially a man) publicly can never be considered fashion and much less worth taking a picture of.
