Fantastic. What I love about his style is how he brings humor to his very tailored look. Sarto, I agree the fact that they are dress pants makes it even better. Wonderful. Funny thing is earlier this summer some lamented men’s options for ease of wear in the hot months, maybe these looks are not easy but I have to say the men of summer are more inspiring to me than the ladies, maybe The Summer of the Dress are making the ladies to lazy?
Wonderful. The ribbon of his camera dangling from his vest pocket recalls the turn-of-the-century-gentleman’s pocket watch. It’s just another subtle addition to this light, summery, and modern play on classic style.
What are some brands that put out fitted dress pants without a weighty price tag?
Everyone wants to be Tintin now? Looks pretty good to me, just not sure about the shirtÂ´s colors (stripes are ok) but IÂ´d try to wear those fantastics old-fashioned arm-bands..donÂ´t know…the shirt seems so lazy…full of drapes..what the heck..it looks nice enough! Your blog rocks. Complimenti!
In a way, this ensemble all comes down to his hair; if he were shaggy, it would be a lot easier to just dismiss the eccentricities; however, his manicured look forces us to confront the rolled cuffs and tight gorge as definite choices. And I like them.
Ok, Sart. I see your point. It is true that though I didn’t (and still don’t) like the end effect of the rolled cuffs, I do appreciate that he’s pushing the boundaries, making one think. That should always be appreciated. That’s one key thing that good art does.
I also wonder if there is some gender prejudice at work here: are we more accepting of women experimenting with their clothes?
I think Sart is right. Like all good art should do, this man’s sartorial creativity forces us to see the old and hackneyed in new ways. His look is pleasing to my eye. I prefer to think that he’s using the Hermes belt ironically. I have no evidence of that, of course, I just prefer to believe that because the alternative is much less kind. And the shoes are terrific.
The stuff in his pockets makes him look human! This is a nice contrast to his last picture, where he looked so made-up. The only piece he’s wearing that every other man isn’t: the vest, but with a little fussing he looks so nicely put-together.
I’m all for quirky – but this……this has more of an educated, ‘serial killer chic’ that I find spooky. Maybe it is the hair and the look he’s shooting the camera. He looks like he just cleaned up a crime scene. Just sayin……
I prefer the quirky look of that hot fellow with the white socks and Stanley pin from a couple weeks ago. That’s my kind of quirk.
OK, M. Sart–you’ve changed my mind. (I’m the one who wrote “Nope.”) He IS interesting and challenges my ways of thinking/wearing these clothes so I’ll give him that. Style he’s got. (Maybe he can roll his cuffs a little wider though?)
I appreciate the detail he pays to his dressing. Overall, I find his style too studied (well pressed clothes, perfectly knotted shoe laces, neatly combed hair etc) which lacks a sense of ‘je ne sais quoi’. None of that ‘effortless’ style which I see in the other photos. Perhaps that’s why some here find it ‘pretentious’?
I agree with “mltt” that it must be tedious to be so fashionably minded every morning. It’s great for content on a website such as yours (certainly entertaining), and great for the trend-setting extremes of the runway, but really, doesn’t it just scream PRETENTIOUS when worn on the street by the average dude?
ok sart i think what makes your site interesting is that people can agree to disagree with you and eachother and the image. fashion is art. if you edit what you read or you get annoyed at what you read, then you are interferring with the purpose of art expression. in other words, you yourself are taking it way too literally as a “yes” or “no” enjoy the fact that people are enjoying your site. i personally LOVE IT and i look forward to seeing what you found new to share everyday.
Oh well…it is Paris, and the young Picasso and his great looks, so I suppose everything is OK. He looks great and even if some people say “pretentious” or “too much”, we should appreciate the effort he is making to give the world a good image. Rather him and his clothes than t-shirt, jeans and sneakers!!! Anyhow, as usual we have the “I like it” and “I don’t get it”, which makes this blog so so so interesting…having people with different point of views reading the blog makes it so good!!! Imagine if all the comments were “I like it”!!!! Boring!!! hehehe
I love your blog, and it disheartens me to see so many people take it as a rating community rather than using it for ‘abstract inspiration’. I love every photgraph you post- even if the outfit isn’t my personal favorite, it’s wonderful to see people being so original and innovative wih their personal styles!
I disagree with all the comments that Fabrizio’s look is too precious and pretentious! Yes, he clearly makes an effort and isn’t going for the studiously-too-cool-to-care-look at all, but with the vast majority of people walking around NOT caring how they look, I find it refreshing to see a person who so thoroughly thinks through each aspect of his outfit. It forces the viewer to think about fashion, which in my mind can only be a good thing even if his taste is not exactly mine. Bravo!
I’m trying to be open-minded too but I just don’t “get” this. He reminds me in this outfit of Christopher Reeve when he time traveled in “Somewhere in Time” to put the moves on Jane Seymour in 1910. :)
IdonÂ´t fancy this photo at all.I donÂ´t like the way the pants are rolled up and again shoes without socks,I hate the vest and although grey-my fave color is present, it doesnÂ´t work here.The thing he has in his pocket makes me wonder…Maybe the small beard sure makes his long face less long but with his hairstyle itÂ´s not good.
i think this guy looks awesome, but more importantly where can a girl with a size 6 1/2 foot buy shoes like that? i’ve been scouring the city(nyc) for months now. no luck. little boys maybe? suggestions sart?
No, not a hit. Each time I see someone trying to pull this look off on this blog, my brow knits. If you’re wearing trousers rolled like this you should either have a clam bucket and shovel in your hand or be escaping rising floodwaters. Awful.
I’m so glad I’m not the only one who saw the serial killer in his look. I don’t know what it is – maybe the hair and the fussy stuff that he does below his knees – first the shoelaces and now these cuffs – definitely there is a creep factor. But he’s probably just a harmless guy who loves clothes – and he is kind of inspiring in his fastidiousness. You know that he’s considered it all very carefully so he’s pointing it out as an option.
