Wow- the look is decidedly vintage, I wonder if there is a piece that is brand new. The most significant item is perhaps the suede jacket, I am sure most of us would see it on a rack and have a hard time figuring out how to match it with other things. Even though we can’t see the belt, the proportions feel right- the cuffed hems give him a poor-boy feel that is quickly counteracted by the Gucci briefcase, perhaps the one new piece? Good combination, overall. Jorge from W Palm Beach
“Starsky, where’s Hutch?”. Too young to have lived through this the first time around, he nevertheless should recognize a bad look when he sees one. Worst details are the painfully ugly shoes and the pants, whose silhouette he does pull off but which look bad close-up. Signature bags I do not understand. Best detail is the cuff which, along with the mobile, at least aren’t period.
I love the jacket. Amazing piece. 2 things dont work for me though. First, the bag seems alien to the whole dress and also the color is fighting a bit with the color of the jacket. Second, and this is just my prefference, the waist could be a bit lower. But overall, when the bag is dropped, it is an amazing match.
I really love this, but I do think the proportinons of the jacket are a bit too long considering the cut of the pants. The sleeves seem a bit too short, maybe some length should be taken away from the hem. But overall, Yes. That Gucci folio doesn’t irritate me in the slightest. It’s understated, not flashy. I miss Gucci in the 70s.
This could be laughable on some, but it looks good on him. That’s what style is about. People who master their own style and are comfortable with it look good.
Some people follow trends blindly, others follow rules and dress codes blindly and lecture others about how bad their unconventional taste is, and both of these are victims who fail to understand the concept of true style.
I sell and style vintage, and one of the big dramas I have with this era of jacket is convincing guys (and girls) that the shorter 70s sleeve length is a positive.
I love that the shorter sleeve shows off the shirt cuff beneath, and am guessing that this era of jacket was designed that way to complement wild printed 70s shirts with their statement deep cuffs and long collars…. or are we just gradually turning into chimps?
OK I love how he wears the pants high and still looks good in a long jacket. But I gotta ask this first for I live in NYC: It’s still humid and hot I sweat walking around the city even in a short sleeves. So I bet this guy would feel hot no matter if he sweats or not, and do you recommend enduring the heat (or chilliness in winter) to look good?
That is to say, doesn’t a real good fashion include being in a harmony with time, place and occasion?
This question also goes to the lady below who wears white dress (which reminds of a toga)in that she’s wearing it in rain.
Unless the photogragh is reversed (or it could just be me), the jacket’s snaps seem to be on the wrong side. Is it a woman’s coat or made for a Euro-market (or some parallel universe)? His jeans are a nice shade but too long, and he could stand some more substantial shoes. I think the bag is too femme for this guy. He does make a great clothes-hanger though. Makes you wonder what the rest of his closet is like.–HB
