    This bag is slaying me. I want it. While we’re at it I’ll take the coat, the slacks… and whatever shirt that is, the end of his sleeve is happenin!

    Classic style mixed with bright colours and funny things like his socks. Like it!

    Obsessed with that bag! Love the blue shirt, the glasses, and those shoes! All the little details like the striped socks poking out, and the fur collar make this so special.

      Hehehehe he certainly keeps the eye and brain moving doesn’t he. If this were in black and white it’d be channeling August Sander as well. Apart from the [email protected]#[email protected]#$%! trouser length. Is that a vintage coat with an astrakhan collar?

    Pattern of his bag similar to traditional woven from kupang, Indonesia

    Great look, the bag is so great!

    I love the entire look, especially the bag. Remind me the guatemalan brand Médium They got similar bags.

      agree! Guatemalan bags came up directly on my mind as I saw the picture. :)

    Great Style, and the bag is a Progetto Fede one…

    Ironically throwing together an assortment of visual clichés makes, I think, not a great outfit.

    The gent clearly has a sense of proportion and color, but his obsession with self-expression and, by extension, complete disregard for the body beneath the drapery is – again, speaking strictly for myself – off-putting.

    • Brizz

      February 5, 2013 at 3:37 am

      I think you are right. The upper half is okay, but from the waist down… the pants too short, the bag too big, the shoes too unpolished, the fabric in the pocket too arty and then the upper half is not okay anymore, too, because the proportions are lost and all in all he lacks nonchalance. (and why do people carry those huge bags??)

  23. Oh, play it louder!!

    February 4, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    What a great bag!!

    See you,

      Are high water pants really a good fashion statement?

        Yes. Get with it.

      • dcinDC

        February 8, 2013 at 5:40 pm

        I don’t think they are – until it goes mainstream, they just look like pants that are too short, and that is NOT a good fashion statement!

    I don’t like those shoes treated so poorly, they give me a sensation of sloppiness.

    Good googly moogly! My kind of outfit!

    I am so jealous that he owns that bag and those shoes. I need to up my shoe and bag game.

    I have such an aversion to big beards that it borders on allergy, and I can’t see beyond that to the clothes.

    I’d love to have a conversation with this guy. He is super cool.

    Love the look! However, I miss the Sartorial lunch/dinner! Is it not that time of year when it is due?

    Sorry, just can’t get with the high-water trousers. And with a chesterfield with persian-lamb collars, bizarre!

    qualcuno sa dove sono vendute borse come quella?
    mmmmmmh…mi piace…..

    The coat collar is Astrakhan ( I think that’s how you spell it!). My wife just inherited an Astrakhan coat of her mum and loved it until she found out what it’s actually made from. Makes ordinary fur seem less grim… Nice hat though.

    nice man….looks like gentleman….
    somebody know whose that bags?

    May 18, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    I truly detest the entire look. The beard is ridiculously unattractive, the bag silly and the short pants/socks/beat-up-Oxford simply not flattering. Call me old fashioned, or call me an arbiter of classic style and a defender of traditionally handsome men – I do not approve of this whole “hipsterish, let me try to look as unattractive as possible so I look cool thing trend”. I much prefer a well groomed gentleman with a charming smile, handsome face and impeccable tailoring.

    Is this the character Eliza Doolittle would have ended up with if she had never met Professor Higgins?
