Strong look. His shoes are indeed Alden 1492s. And I second the poster who recommended Albam jeans for the turn ups. They do a great slim leg (smart but not tight indie band slim) raw jean for eighty pounds. They're long enough for a proper turn up too.
lol well darlins I must be the old gal around here to remember all the jeans were worn with cuffs. Believe it or not my Daddy would yell at me for wearing jeans.. "they are farmers clothes!" lol but he finally came around. me in my cuffed jeans, my uncle franks marine wool shirt, my puma sneakers, my crochet purple hat and my love beads. jewelles http://jewelles.etsy.com/
I love checking in–you do a great job with young women, young men, and older men. However, older women are few and far between. In your opionion, is this because older women generally succumb to "mutton dressed as lamb" ridiculousnes or to styleless invisibility? Maybe they just aren't out there on the street? These are genuine questions. As an older woman,I am constantly trying to take my style temperature. :)
I totally agree, I'm also obsessed with the cuffed jeans. I guess you gave me the idea at first, then I started doing it to my own jeans and then I started noticing it on other people when they do it right or wrong in a funny way.
This is such a great blog for fashion inspirations. I hope mine is too by the way.
I have loved your posts about mens fashion lately…I love the cleaned, simple, polished look. I have been obsessed with cuffed jeans as well! It's such a coincidence because I just posted something about cuffing jeans and wearing mens-inspired shoes such as oxfords/brogues. Here, you captured someone that has demonstrated this style to perfection. He shows that you can age gracefully! Thanks for posting!
Loving the desert boots so much! I have been searching for a pair for the longest time and just found what I wanted today! I am without a doubt buying a pair! I am probably as obsessed over the way the man cuffs his jeans as I am. I have been trying it lately but it doesn't look as cool as his! I have to experiment a little more. check out my trendy blog! http://thetrendydwarf.blogspot.com/
I think a lot of your commenters aren't getting the difference between this cuff, which is like a normal trouser cuff (or 'turn up' as we say in England) and the usual jean cuff which shows the wrong side of the denim.
I hope we'll see some photos of your short time in Toronto… and that you liked our city. I know it's no Paris or Milan but the anglo/ scottish past mixed with the ethnically diverse present make for a lot of gorgeous people with their very own groovy styles.
Hey sart, just to say I LOVE your blog! It is literally 5 A.M. here in Mexico and I can't stop going through your photos! They're beautiful. I actually check your blog every day just in case you've updated it (2 or 3 or sometimes 4 or 5 times a day.. you know, just in case)
The guy from the picture? Elegant, classy and very stylish. Thank you for amazing photos like these that remind me of the person I want to be.
Ah, the older man, chic and understated…….Just love him. He looks splendid and he knows it. I like his expression of amused patience with you, the photog. His shoes are great – seen similar at J Crew……. and the jeans are the perfect foil for any shirt and/or jacket. Great shot.
Your blog is amazing. The pictures are sometimes breathtaking and the way you portrait everyday people's style is incredibly inspirational! It's funny, I heard of your blog through a very similar blog a portuguese man created: http://lisboadiarios.blogspot.com
Cuffing with raw denim is definitely a nice look if done right. The contrast of the warp and weft of the fabric can be quite sharp. I've cuffed all of my jeans for a couple of years, and for those asking about stitching them, you don't have to. At least with raw denim, it's stiff enough that you just fold it up and it stays there.
Don't know about the jeans, but that's a great jacket he's got on… beautiful softly tailored shoulders and a wonderful roll to the lapel. Also looks like cashmere, and the white contrasting buttons are sharp as opposed to the stodgy old brass buttons that are so common with a navy blazer.
I hate to be a downer – but while I love his look and the concept of the narrow jeans cuffed, it's not quite right. Since this pant was not designed to be cuffed (only actual straight legs can be turned under and then cuffed up), there is too much material on the leg it's self (see the bunching). Maybe if they were pressed slightly, you can get away with it… and of course if the pant was originally designed to be cuffed, that would look super sharp!
I like the hieght where he wears his pants, they look like they're painted on his belly. This guy doesn't really have the look of someone involved in the fashion world, it looks like a personal style thing.
I do this when I buy jeans that are too long and I like them so much that I want to wear them right then (so I don't have time to take them to be fixed). It's really easy with a few hand stitches. The denim must be hard. Slim fit jeans can be made at the ankle and wear with very high heals.
