Although my “eye” still hasn’t adjusted to the dress shorts concept, I have to say that what these guys are wearing looks so much nicer than most of the baggy, ratty cargo shorts usually worn by men in the US.
i love the second man, his look. the hair, glasses, necklace and deep unbuttoned shirt are so rock and roll – yet the vest and shorts sort of hold it all in and keep it under control control. even the tightly tailored vest speaks to the idea of containing something wild – sexy!
The first man’s look would be improved with a higher rise on those shorts IMHO. Where they sit now, they seem to emphasize the tummy and shorten the legs, and I’d prefer not to see small patches of the white shirt poking out around the belt. The proportion-throwing effect is completed by the deep Vs of the shirt and cardigan, but you can’t begrudge anyone for trying to shake off the heat nowadays by undoing an extra button… even if they happen to be wearing two layers at the time, I suppose…
I prefer the baggy shorts the american teenagers wear. They are rebellious and not so precious. Those same teenagers invented the friendship bracelet, we see the icons of fashion sporting. The Bermudians also have figured out how to wear shorts beautifully. Tight clothes on men remind me of Tom Jones! Maybe I’m too old I used to dig Tom when I was a teenager…. Opti Mom
Hey,these two look corny.The top guy with his shorts looks quite odd.His upper part looks massive compared to his lower part.The blonde guy looks very young and his shorts suit revealing the hairy feet donÂ´t appeal to me at all.
I really love the example from Paris – it’s all in the details. From the change in pattern from houndstooth? to the inexact gridding pattern, to the way that the position of the corners of the vest are guarded on either side by the seam of the shorts. I love the comparison between the larger cuffing of the shorts and the smaller crisp cuffing of the shirt sleeve. And not to mention that the guy is just scruffily gorgeous!
The man with the hair and glasses has got some guts: the plaid vest and trousers turned into shorts takes a moment to get used to, but works, despite his hair (horrific) and those glasses (Carole Burnet must be wondering where they are.)
Overall, the first look is sophisticated yet casual. Good combo. But I wish the shorts were a little more high-waisted and the shirt more neatly tucked into them, and perhaps they should be paired with less obvious shoes. But he is beautiful, and it is his personal style, afterall. That’s why it is so hard to critique anyone- because it is a matter of individual opinion and personal taste!
Il primo uomo Ă¨ bello. ‘The first man is beautiful.’ Think a lot could look good on him, but nice choice even so. The blonde…wouldn’t choose those clothes myself, but he certainly seems like he feels comfortable in the look and whilst not personally digging the style, when someone looks natural in their own style choices, you can appreciate it for that alone.
its such a shame that most of the men in the US still insist on wearing the grossest cargo shorts ever, when you can see quite clearly from these pictures how great a man can look if he would just take the time to put himself together a bit. Sigh…
How I wish American men dressed more like the second man. I’m so tired of men wearing big baggy clothes, it makes them all look fat. Of course, this fellow is beautiful and could get away with most anything. He looks like an angel.
