      Agreed! I love the sneakers the most in this outfit!

        I have to disagree……. the sneaker do nothing for me and in fact it takes away from what would have been a fluid look with a touch of pizzazz……. the sneakers are statement overdrive which is NEVER a good look.

          I have to agree with you, the sneakers look very out of place. Before I scrolled down to the sneakers I found the fact that he was pulling up his shorts interesting, but the sneakers detract from it.

            You found a person pulling up their shorts interesting? And you didn’t want to be distracted from someone pulling up their trousers. Amusing thought.

    the leather pants are INCREDIBLE. and i love how this guy isn’t wearing them with a head-to-toe biker look. but can the American flag thing just die already?!? So over. although maybe in Florence it’s still fresh?

      Irene I totally agree!!!!!……you put it wonderfully…… the sneakers do exactly that, they ruin the magic.

  17. Simbarashe

    July 24, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    Interesting. The shorts look unnecessarily hot, temperature wise. I did the camo top though, that’s a good fit for him.

        Not my intention to disturb, dear Kari, but there are looks I can’t find cool. Maybe a matter of age (mine).


    July 24, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    I aboslutely LOVE the slouchy fit of the leather shorts ! they look like something a basketball player would wear but in a mesh material. so unique !! And pairing them with the Jeremy scott for addidas sneakers is genius. A new take on sports wear !

    • LOVE IT!

      July 26, 2012 at 11:32 am

      I support everything he is doing!!! AMAZING LOOK! and he’s free. don’t tame him!!!! Anyone at anytime can wear whatever the hell they want as long as they’re confident and creative (what this blog means to me and why i love it so)

    The shorts are so cool!! looks perfect with those jeremmy scott’s sneakers

    July 24, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    !handsome look! I dream of having a pair of the jeremy scott winged kicks in shiny gold one day. But, OH! I can’t imagine him being very comfortable. It is so hot and humid now in Florence. I am returning there from Civitanova tomorrow and..and.. wishing this cool weather would follow my train ride there..

    July 24, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    It is a pretty horrible look, no matter who designed that shorts or shoes.

    • Topol

      July 24, 2012 at 7:30 pm

      Angie, thank you for that dose of reality.

      The camouflage shirt is good. The shoes are fun for a 12-year old.

      The shorts are heavy and too much. Perhaps if they were made of a lighter leather, but not the way they are on this guy.

      Overall, the outfit is fighting itself and the fellow is losing.

  44. Nicole

    July 24, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    I love the design of the sneakers!
    I found a pair of wedge ankle boots that had a similar design and now I can’t remember where. So sad.
    But yeah. Those shoes are amazing.
    And if this photo was taken in Italy…the fact that they have the design of the American flag is interesting xD


  45. Hassie

    July 24, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    Nooooo!!!!! if your shorts are constantly falling down because they are gigantic and you have to keep one hand on them, well that’s not a good look. I understand the statement he is making and for his courage I applaud him. But he looks hot! Hot as in warm as in sweaty and uncomfortable, not a good look. What if has to run? He would lose his pants and well….. once again that is not a good look….on him or anyone.
    Fun photo though and the craziest shoes ever!

  55. bobkentnova

    I can’t decide which is more ridiculous, the leather shorts or the Jeremy Scott for Adidas shoes.

    I think he looks cool, but for some reason I really don’t like the look. That doesn’t make sense, I know.

    I’m not a fan, I get why some people would like it, but over all it fits poorly and makes the guy look lumpy and with chicken legs.

    I like to think this young Florentine (?) was inspired to wear these shoes by remembering Giambologna’s statue of Mercury in the Bargello. I like to think that Jeremy Scott was similarly inspired to design them.

    He must be freakin’ insane to be wearing leather shorts in Firenze in the summer. Plus the look is just plain ugly. Most young italiani have much better taste.

    i don’t like this, I don’t like looking at it, Everything he wears seems pointy, unbending, stiff, unconfortable ; it doesn’t mean it really IS but it looks like it; Maybe the person in the picture wants to stand out, which might justify his choice;

  117. SallyO

    July 26, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    I really like his sneakers, but he needs suspenders for his lederhosen.

    Enough about the sneakers. What about the New Zealand Maori koru tatoo on his leg. Now that’s commitment to patroitism. Is he a Kiwi?

  119. MacGuffin

    July 27, 2012 at 3:53 am

    Please tell me this guy was joking. No one would dress like that unless it was a joke, right? The shoes are dreadful and the shorts are ridiculous.

      Yeah. But some of the greatest outfits are in the DON’T column. Thats why i actually stopped buying all magazines that have them.

    Chacun a son gout! However, the footwear is, in my opinion, comical -perhaps that IS the point? Discuss.

    He has to hold up his goddamn shorts. The whole thing is ridiculous except for the shoes.

    Sneakers are great. Very whimsical.

    What is happening to this blog? Is it becoming a venue for others to advertise their own pathetic blogs??? Two thumbs down.

      I honestly don’t see how people commenting on here is advertising. Its very unlikely that anyone would check out a blog just because of a comment on here. And even if you do wonder about the occasionally commenter, its nearly always a private thing. Not an actual blog. Its just what it looks like. people commenting. Check for yourself. There are only about three actual blogs out of all these comments at the time of this message. The rest are set to private.

    Holly Laugh Out Loud! My eyebrows hit the ceiling when I saw this. He is certainly making a hella wild statement. It is not subtle. But its got some charm anyhow. The shoes I absolutely love, and I love finding out what kind of man would rock them. Well captured!!!

    I loved the look, from top to knee. The leather shorts are very unique, and the camouflage shirt goes nicely with it.

    So cumbersome. Prada is doing flames and wings on stilettos. It’s elegant and creative. This is wrong. Adidas Fail. As always I appreciate seeeing whats out there your side of the world.
    Thanks Scott.

    The combination of a camouflage long sleeve plus leather shorts with a pair of rubber shoes (Wings, Color R/B) are awesome. It’s kinda weird but still a thumbs up for me! :)

    Am I the only one that is horrified by this, especially the shoes? I think its awfully tacky and looks cheap. Quelle disastre.

    Ryan Lochte has a pair of these shoes as well. I couldn’t pull it off, I’m not sure if either this guy or Ryan L. can either. They are a novel idea, but not for me.

    The proportions are so odd it looks as though a torso of a much smaller man was pasted onto the legs of a much larger one.

    There is nothing I like in this outfit except the confidence required to wear those shoes.
