    Those pants really came as a surprise as I was scrolling down the page after having seen already the gorgeous coat. Love the look!

    The green leggings caught me by surprise due to the length of his coat and I like the leather shoes with a buckle on top.

    I love the rich colors and fabric textures in his outfit. He has mastered the proportions of this outfit; long jacket, skinny trousers and boots… perfect!

    Is there a hint of something militant here? He certainly has the austere mood to go with the look and the moustashe. Great colors!

    Gotta say, I'm not a huge fan of this look. I hate the fit of his jacket – not only that his sleeves come down to cover his hands, but also a pet peeve if mine is jackets that fall below the knee. And what little I can see of the pants make them look like long johns, a la Charlie in Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

    That mustache is badass though.

    He seems to be asking if anyone has anything snarky to say about his fabulous green velvet pants.

    He didn't think so.

    that man looks fabulous. u know at first when i stumbled upon this blog it felt like it was coming from a woman's pov but when I realized that u were a man i was amazed at the fact that you could disguise the way u conveyed ur message to us readers. is that something ur born with or is it learned along the way?

    With a look like that on his face, you don't expect the green leggings. Very interesting contrast.

    Love those boots. Tights not so much but he does look like a background character in a Star Wars film which gives him a lot of points.

    i would never equate the expression on his face with someone who'd wear leggings. aside from that, it's hard to say this is an age-appropriate look. and aside from that, i don't see it working on any man – a real clash of elements.

    April 11, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    to me this is perfect! just shows how the clothes have to accompany the person that you are in order to have a real impact, the face and the trousers compliment each other really well.
