Denim which moves so far beyond its utilitarian roots, either through excessive tailoring (like pleats or flares) or decoration (like those godawful embroidered back pockets and flaps popular a few years ago, or elaborate designer finishes) are soulless contrivances of fashion and are avoided by people with taste.
Luckily I kept my baggy jeans from the last time this cut was stylin' – like 5 years ago. I have learned not to get rid of any clothing as styles seen to come and go so quickly anymore, one must be prepared for any shift that will predictably show up again in 5-10 year cycles. Now if square toed men's shoes would only come back into vogue…
I am not sure these denims are actually baggy as we have known it, but more harem style baggy. I think they look great–and I Iike the rest of the outfit, esp the scarf as it lifts the whole look. A generally well groomed gentleman.
I must agree with some of the earlier comments that the look at me H on the belt is a bit much. No need to brag. The rest of the outfit looks great – if a touch too put togther – I think Australians share the feeling with most Americans that men shouldn't look like they parade in front of mirror excessivly before hitting the street (even if they do).
This man is awasomy chic and sophisticated. He looks great in this baggy jeans, however he seems to be also a very tall man. I do think that this cut is really suitable for very particular figure'shapes (both: men and women)
I am not a fan of this type of jeans, I do really think that to wear them well you have to be very, very self – knowledgeable…
This is a look few can pull off. I think he succeeded because of his slim body type. I shudder to think of this type of pants on anyone not slim and tall, however. This is a case of knowing what looks good specifically on you, and damn the critics!
Interesting look, but I feel that he tried too hard. The scarf is awesome, the baggy jeans are sort of cool, the belt is an attention grabber, the jacket (or whatever that is) is interesting, but together, it's all too much. I don't think the whole is greater than the sum of the parts here, but he's still a handsome man!
Great look. He makes me feel better about genes with a tendency of balding. Scarf is great, love the simple combination of plain+neutral and patterned+bright. The jeans remind me of the harem pants trend that has been up for some time now. Looks good on men too, if you have the right spirit. Never though jeans would be the fabric though…
Do u look the outfit or the the person? He is great, fabulous. He can wear one (perfect) H belt with a baggy jeans, and be elegant, because he haven't bias.bias about H belt, bias about the age, bias about… Are you sure understand fashion?
I believe you already 'looked forward' with the original baggy pants picture you took a while back, almost a year, it was the gentlemen at the Ralph Lauren show with the yellow blazer and baggy jeans combo with the shaved head and full on beard. He carried this look far better. I think its on the style.com site as you never posted it up on the blog
Like the scarf, and the look works with his body type and demeanor (ergo, it's a great example of personal style), but I don't like the pants per se at all. I find the sillouette they create aesthetically unappealing on most people. Hate the belt, too… why would someone secure enough to wear this look resort to An Obvious And Tacky Logo?
I guess I am in the minority but nothing about this works and I'm trying to be polite here. He looks decades older than he actually is. Baggy pleats don't work. Cardigan, in summer? The neck scarf is choking his posture, the beard is an unattractive scream for attention. The belt – i HATE logos as style, they are EGO on display, like tagging.
so classic but so progressive, so fashion-forward but so personal. i can see how many would dislike this outfit, but the individualism and elegance is, to me, unbelievably striking. a true modern gentleman.
What a stylish INDIVIDUAL! I'd much rather see this than all those clones who 'chop and change' with the so called 'latest trends'. WAKE UP PEOPLE!! Look at some of the great examples of PERSONAL style on this blog, not just at the individual items of clothing! All those 'logo whores' who made a point of disliking the belt are just showing off because they recognised that it was Hermes…who cares! I personally don't like logos on clothing but how do we know that he didn't just buy the belt because his name begins with 'H'! I think the proportions (especially the jacket and trousers) work wonderfully for HIM. He seems to be a confident and intelligent man who is obviously comfortable with his OWN style!
I love this, though it's message is a bit quirky. Covering your neck has always seemed somewhat uptight to me, but his pants feel quite the opposite. I like the color play betwwn his jacket, pants, and shirt.
