OK, so this looks good with jackets and shirts that were cut and sewn just for them. Hopefully this will not lead to gents wearing their off-the-rack sleeves all bunched up, or worse yet, the rolled up jacket sleeves of the late 80′s! I feel that the tapered legs of these pants guide your eye towards the shoes, which should be a basic shape and style, and that does not happen here. Anyone have any clue as to what kind of shoes these are? Look almost like golf shoes? Jorge from W Palm Beach
Oh God, I hope I don’t end up doing it. For now I’ll say pushed-up sleeves didn’t look good in the eighties and they still don’t.Without the pushed-up sleeves I think he’d have to roll his cuffs down and change those shoes. Maybe he should anyway.
Lovely picture, but I can’t get excited over the look. Most of my sports jackets have functional sleeve buttons precisely so that I don’t have to remove the jacket when I need to roll up the sleeves a bit for something. But to walk around with your jacket sleeves pushed all the time is pretty twee. It doesn’t help in my eyes that today’s subject also succumbed both to the Thom Brown craze for high-waters (although his seem only a bit higher than traditional European cuts) and the no-socks fad (which has its place, but never with a jacket in my view). And are those sneakers he is wearing?
not a good look, the double breasted jacket clashes with this Miami Vice deal. And hey the beard and hair are in need of a trim. I’m all for loose and casual and for neat and tight, but make up your mind, dude.
Pushed-up sleeves give a nice, relaxed vibe to a suit or jacket. It’s a bit of a throwback to the early 1980′s, I think. I like the bright shirt contrasted with the dark jacket on this fellow. Leaving one extra button undone just adds to the relaxed feeling. Nice shades. Another pocket square! The shoes are unusual. I can’t make up my mind how I feel about them. One suggestion for this gent. If your jacket is one size looser, you can make use of the pockets to hold your cell phone and PDA without ruining the line of the jacket. Free your hands, and reduce the risk that you lose your cell phone. A compromise between function and fashion.
Attractive older lad, but I hate to say, I call these “comedian sleeves”. All bad comedians in the late 80′s and 90′s seemed to push up their jacket sleeves like this – it’s awful. If it’s hot, honey, take that jacket off! I also find it fascinating that he’s standing in front of a bale of hay – where is this???
A classic look, and I am so pleased that there is no gold chain in that open shirt collar. Rolled up sleeves and pants certainly add a casual air to the ensemble — as though he just stepped off of his sailboat.
Great photo. Love the pink shirt, DB jacket, beard, and khakis. The shoes are bizarre, to me. Pushed-up sleeves? Well, it reminds me of that Miami cops televisual programme from the 1980s (can’t recall the name of it).
This rolled up sleeve look is a dream for tall lanky men who don’t want to feel like they’re wearing their fathers’ jackets. it allows for a sleek fit in the torso and hides the possibility of an ill-fitting sleeve. I’m ALL OVER IT. BSM
What makes it works is his confidence. The silhouette of the jacket, the pink of the shirt, the way he has it pushed up along with the rolled up pants creates sort of “just rushed out the door” effect –which looks breezy and has its charm.
I do not share the general enthusiasm for this pushed up business. Too effete, effeminate, self conscious. Every thing about it is “trop” (too much). Isn’t elegance about eliminating all that is too this or too that? Not to mention the “shoes”(!) Oh god! Xavier Benoit.
not a fan, at least not of this example. to me it’s just ruining the line of a really good jacket. the heavy (golfing?) shoes make the pants look too short, a lighter soes might have been better. i would like to see more pictures of the pushed up sleeve, though and be persuaded it can work!
Wow he looks great! He is holding that journal with such finesse i would just love to see his entry in it today. The shirt just makes me want to dance and sing out loud it’s so pink yet so right he pulls it off with ease and dont even get me started on those pants…..the crease is just so sharp and masculine yet somehow casual enough to stroll around in.im truly a fan.
He must had had his jacket tailored keeping in mind that he would push them up. Otherwise the sleeves would look loose and bunched up and would have to be pushed up past the elbow. Quite like the 80′s look with the shoulder pads ala George Micheal.
Like all the trends from the 80′s this one was also quite forgettable. Alhough, he somehow manages to pull it off.
As an European, I see lots of new things all the time in Europe, but I do not necessarily find them tasteful. Aside from that, this would have been a nice outfit if he had not taken it over the top: too much rolling-up everywhere! And, if he wanted to do all that, subtle shoes would have been “de rigeur”.
i’m very impressed. this man has everything perfect. all of the colors he is wearing are so perfectly proportioned. his rosy tone in his aviators mix with his casual pink dress shirt. his rolled up sleeves are to die for, especially with that extra rolling of the pants. he looks clean and neat, and his clothes fit and complement his body perfectly; also, the brown shoes help to even out the khaki pants and dramatic jacket. and i’m loving the bands on his wrists. this man definitely knows how to pull together a great outfit. such and inspiration!
The pushed-up sleeves make him look very energetic …and I almost want to say young :o) I love the colors and the shapes of this outfit. It is so pleasant to see a man with fresh playful style, yet very masculine!
My 2 gay boyfriends who are very very chic and italian, refuse to wear short sleeve shirts in the summer, so they have been pushing up sleeves forever on their perfect italian cotton stripe long sleeve shirts. they always look amazing, such effortless style. the italian men are not afraid to dress with flair….
Love, love, love what this man is wearing. The navy blazer on top of lilac and the linen pants are perfect together! I adore his shoes. And yes, the pushed up sleeves look incredible. He is very good looking too. I am feeling very 70′s here.
