    The overalls are beautiful.

    The first picture looks like a pair of jorts one would see on a middle aged man at a suburban shopping mall in July. The second looks like a uniform for a hospital radiation tech. Bleck!!!

    Is this The Sartorialist? Long time fan; first time commenter. I’m sorry, but I think that second shot is the ugliest, erm … oufit, I’ve ever seen.

    Comfy looking, but sloppy. I like that first lady’s green jacket though…

    is it just me, or is the first image not showing right?

    Fantastic colours in the clothes of the first picture! I haven’t seen that much colour, and so well done, ages, no, ever!

    I love overalls of all sorts, and this is very neat. Both on Garance and on the model. But I am not sure what I think of the low waist, low crotch thing. I definitely like it here. Especially on the runway. I love the one piece thing .And its brilliantly paired with those hooflike shoes.

    I like everything about the top photo, especially her shorts! I like absolutely nothing about the second photo.

    I think Garance has set a fashion trend with her baggy overalls. Who’d have thought? Love her green leather jacket – delish!

    Garance is very COOL as always

    Color, color, color – only for big pocket denim. A nice pocket-style!

    The photos are beautiful, but I don’t think I can get on board with the droopy drawers look :)

    I am all for freedom of expression and pushing the boundaries… but this is a ridiculously bad look!

    That silk (?) jumpsuit is divine. …and I think I spy Garance…

    And then you wonder: what you can possibly put into those huge pockets? An iPad? A pot of flowers? A puppy?

    Garance always inspires you… (and us!) Lovely to see her outfits at your blog. We kinda want more!!!

    so obsessed with these outfits. i’m so into the big pockets and slouchy pants.

    Cool, but not flattering.

    November 20, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    I see small pockets in the first photo but no matter.
    Always an inviting place to rest one’s hands during a smooch.
    Just speculation, of course.

    Ok, these girls are gorgeous. And this trend is not. Why wear jeans/jumpers that don’t have any shape? It makes her backside look so long and big – if this was in project runway, all the judges would say “what were you thinking?!” So no, I don’t like it. Great shots, though

  31. dominique

    November 20, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    OH Wow! The leather jacket is perfect!
    And some women really can wear those pants! Love it :)

    Project Runway is fairly absurd, so its not really anything to compare to. If you are going to state an opinion, then just make your own. Not theirs. And why do women always think they HAVE to define their waist to be “flattering”??? Its because they are brainwashed or else its some sort of way to prove that you are sound breeding stock. This look is VERY graceful. The fact that some people don’t get it is perfectly fine. I am not convinced, but there is nothing ugly here at all.

    I love the first outfit, but the second one is… meh. The colors in the first photo are amazing- I love her jacket, and the shorts actually look unique and interesting.

    Love the air and flow of the jumpsuit!!

  38. The Fringes

    November 20, 2011 at 2:55 pm

    Is that Garance in the first shot? She has the most amazing legs, I’d spot them anywhere. Like those pants she’s wearing more than I like the second photo it’s a good look

    hmmm not too sure about the big pockets to be honest. I am quite petite and if i wore those my bum would look like they are down on my knees

  40. Timaya

    The first one is amazing. I love it. I’m all for being comfortable and stylish, pretty and tough. I love the shorts.

    Big & drapey can work nicely, especially when one is sick to death of clothes that look like they were spray-painted on. This looks takes–and projects–a certain insouciance and confidence, and that’s always attractive.

    I love the green jacket and the color combination in the pic

    This is probably the least flattering thing that can be done to a woman’s backside. Why is it on this blog? And an aside to Garance–you beautiful, beautiful woman, why is it ever on you?

    No way Jose. Possibly a “what was I thinking” fashion moment.

  52. Melissa Laurel

    November 20, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    I really like the top look, but would prefer the bagginess dialed back just a bit. The jacket and peek of denim shirt looks great. No, no and some more no on the second shot. And I’m all about the jumpsuit, but I think this one is tragic.

  53. marilena

    November 20, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    the green leather jacket is amazing and the overalls too!

  54. berenger

    November 20, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    I LOVE the green jacket in the first photo. The shorts are ok, inoffensive if unflattering. The second image – don’t really get it. Derek Jarman did overalls so elegantly – he was beyond cool.

  55. Matina

    November 20, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    the oversized denim shorts in the first picture are great.

    those look like garance’s legs….i would very much appreciate a bit of time with her and those loose fitting shorts.

    make her toes curl so hard he heels pop off.

    This is a style I do not approve. The outfit in the bottom picture looks horrible.

    Big back pockets ( and front) on denim
    are functional:
    just want to stuff ‘em full of paint brushes, china markers, conte crayaons, pastels, charcoals, a chamois rag…

    a leave the denim looking Pollock-y.

  61. Lee

    November 20, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    Really love both pics. The blue jumpsuit is so playful with those giant pockets- a remnant from a different era of history placed thoughtfully on that designer outfit. Engages the mind and the eye. Good spotting Scott.

    big back pockets tend to lead to saggy butts. I’m not sure if this is the most flattering trend.

    Baggy was cool back in the early-late 90′s… remember when cargo shorts, carpenter pants and over-sized tee were cool? Fitted is Fantabulous.

    I’m looking for a nice digital camera under or around $200 for the purpose of blogging (as in wordpress, blogger, etc). I’m trying to get a blog which will be based around the daily photos I take despite the fact that I’m not really a photographer but only doing it for fun. Any cool features like video would also be great but mainly I’m just looking for something I can take quality pictures, and that will hopefully hide my total amateur abilities. . . Thanks guys!.

    i really like the green jacket, that’s all

  87. Name*

    Its more flattering then tight squeezed buttocks forced into skinny jeans. In fact I think it is very sexy to have clothing that is oversized. I have to say the green jacket does nothing for me. The top picture makes the lady look square, but the second picture flows. It looks long and lean. Believe me, showing off your curves is not nearly as flattering as people think. besides, are people not tired of tight, tight tight clothing?
