Spring and winter together in one outfit! Itâ€™s still cold, but seeing here this jacket, scarf and gloves makes me feel tiredâ€¦ Although they arenâ€™t ugly, Iâ€™m much more interested in the shoes, pants and bag which are also very inspiring for women.
Check out http://www.acnejeans.com or visit one of their Acne Studios and look at their chino collection. I think the slim model i called expand and they are available i several colours i think. Very niiiiice
Agree on the cut of the jacket and the way the check matches at most seams. Even though I am not a slim guy, I know Brioni makes slim khakis like that, and also Trillion in Palm Beach cuts their pants slim like that. I loved the briefcase, even though it looks like canvas, the rigidity of it makes it look like leather- anyone knows who makes it? I use a Bonnie Cashin for Coach vintage briefcase for work, but when it wears out I will have to get something else. Jorge from W Palm Beach
Well, to me the jacket looks like it fits too snugly, and while the individual pieces of this outfit have merit, not much seems to work together. But I do like that the background colors compliment the colors of the scarf, jacket and khakis.
looks like he slept in his ill fitting clothes to me. even on a small man like him the buttons on his jacket are straining. I love this site but some days… I mean doesn’t fit matter? If not then what is it just big scarfs?
I have a pair of similar slim khalhis from Diesel from about two years ago. I really like these. The pink sneakers are so quirky yet appear completely natural. But I wish he had unbuttoned the bottom button of the jacket, then he’d look more at ease at the top and less stuffed.
Uniqlo Vintage Chinos are relatively slim and fairly priced. A lot of higher end brands have nice fitting chinos as well. I’ve seen some solid offerings from margiela, our legacy, paul smith, cdg, helmut, among others.
The look is great. I can’t really find any flaw in it. Contrary to what was said about the blazer, I think it is the weakest piece. The silhoutte is great. The cut is good and the length is perfect. It could be just the flap pockets, the size of the plaid, or the 3 buttons. They just make the look a little too busy where as everything else is stark, neutral and simple.
how atractive Uniqlo, ZARA or even H&M sound compared to Helmut Lang, Brioni or Kiton! We are talking chinos / khakis and this is an item that lives by how it fits (and i mean the fit, here) the individual not how hip or exclusive the brand may be!
As Mr. Yves St. Laurent said “We must never confuse elegance with snobbery”
Think about it!
About the sportscoat, seams are done well! Still it looks a bit tight if u ask me, but this could also come from a sweater worn underneath or from the fact that ist is buttoned where it shouldnt be ;) Maybe it was just cold!
The bag-is there a more masculine alternative? And im not talking messenger or flight attendent bags.
Pale pink sneakers add the lill extra touch! Nice!
And Scott, please confess that you took the pic just for the scarf ;)
Pink shoes and beige khakis, nice combo! You can get fitted khakis in many, many places in Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. Lightweight casuals to take you from day into night in abundance over here thanks to the hotter climes.
Sart, you should try Bills Khaki’s M3 model…short rise, fitted through the seat, trimmer leg. Have your tailor taper the legs even more to get a nice trim silhouette. Incotex does cut their khakis very slim, but they aren’t worth the $300 bucks you’ll pay at some retailers. They are the same quality as a pair of Corbin or Ballin pant you could find at Saks (both manufacture pants for Saks private label). The selection of different fabrics Bills Khakis offers is very nice as well! Everything from their heavy 10 oz twill to their supper light poplin and chamois cloth…!
I have those sneakers. I didn’t buy them at some fancy-shmancy sneaker boutique. No, I scored them for $7 bucks TJ Maxx in Medford, Oregon. And they were in the women’s section. I call them my “Converse All-Pinks.”
