funky, yet still very well put together. his accessories compete with the coolness of the plaid. the glasses and beard, the unfolded collar, and tiny dreads peeping out from the back of his hat… i love this photo.
Oh Jesus… we're looking at the same photo, right? I don't like it at all. Either plaid blazer or plaid slacks; not both. Either pop the collar or lift the sleeves; not both. Either lift a drink or the mobile; not both.
He reminds me of Will.I.Am, I love the beautiful shade of green. Colours compliment each other very nicely, and I love on the zoom how you pick up the brown running through the green. Beautiful, and it shows how important fit and cut is in a tailored piece like a blazer.
I like the fabrics and accessories together, and together they look good on him. Except that the fit of the jacket and of the trousers is poor. Looking at Sartorialist photos trains the eye to want to see good fit!
Crazy, but it works overall. None of the checks work together but somehow he pulls its off and produces a stylish if not particularly elegant effect. It's hovering on the line between stylish and slightly clownish but I have to say he stays just on the right side. I'm all for mixing checks but if you are like the rest of us you really need to vary the size and patterns. Glen check pants/houndstooth socks to give a very simple and obvious example.
What a clever mix, loved everything from the hat to the glasses to the coat, and even the beard. The watch is uniquely pleasant, only thing that is a miss is the white handkerchief on his pocket being too big. Love this site
When I scrolled down and saw "Mixed plaids…" title, my morning breakfast started to come up in my throat a bit. But after scrolling down to the photo, he looks sooo cool. Not many people could pull this off, but he does!
As several people have pointed out, this is the same plaid which doesn't make it that hard to tell that it could all go together. But just because you can, doesn't mean you should! Too jacked up on accessories and LOOK AT ME. I vote no.
This outfit is definitely not for everyone. Can you imagine the gentle in the left (background) wearing this outfit? He will look like a clown. This guy wear it with such confidence……..wear what suits you..well, i guess we need to know what suits us.
The green in the jacket is so beautiful. It's a color a lot of guys won't wear/buy. The mix is bold, but it's one of those "certain city", "certain look", "certain age" kind of looks that doesn't work on everyone. He pulls it off with a lot of panache.
Very obviously an urban take on a 'country' look, so too contrived for me. The juice for me in 'authentic country' looks is in the shoes, socks, bags, scarves. So the lack of detail means I am unable to feel this guys look.
This is a look I’ve seen now and again in London (beard included).
You could call it a ‘Monk-like’ or ‘Thelonius-ish’ style ?
These gentlemen are lone hunters, and can often be spotted, lurking at the back, rarely ever speaking but looking cool, in jazz clubs or off beat, boho cafes where jazz is a staple ingredient of the incidental background mixtapes.
