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. http://lordashbury.com
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!
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.
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.
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.
