It’s kind of an overload of well everything haha, but he does pull it together by coordinating the shoes with the shirt and the pocket flower (?), and I’d say the sunglasses are crucial. Very interesting.
well well pink stripes with brown are excellent the yellow trimming on the bag not so sure… its all about balance,and clearly there is something extra in the look that make it ”too much”. is it the tie? the bag (which seems empty and weightless) altogether? shoes? great inspiration material but…. (each piece is great separately though)
This guy has a wondeful eye for color – the easter egg assortment of emerald, mustard, and cherry blossom stand out beautifully against the slated earth tones of his suit. However, I wish he would stand with more confidence!
He is “Mangueirense”. hehehe IÂ´m talking about a BrazilianÂ´s Carnival. Mangueira is the most famous sambaÂ´s school here in Brazil. And the principal colors are pink and green. ItÂ´s a wonderful parade, always in February – In Rio de Janeiro or SĂŁo Paulo. In Rio is more tradicional…ehhehe ;o)
I like this ensemble but it makes one think: sometimes I look at an outfit such as this and the adage saying “the man makes the clothes… the clothes don’t make the man.” But as a bystander your opinion is based on how his demeanor conveys his confidence in a (calculated) risk. I like this guy yet too often I’ll look at similar styles that walk a fine line between clever and… um, not.
also i love that he is just having fun with fashion. too many people forget how to have “fun” with a neatly tailored and trimmed look and i feel as though a lot of people who visit and read this blog daily just obsess over getting their outfits coordinated in a sartorial sense that they never venture into anything daring anymore (which feels stagnant). so, goofy colors? not sure they work? i don’t care. they work because they’re unexpected. so, yes please!
I’m completely on board with this look until the bag. There’s no reason we women should get all the awesome colors and cute accessories, but something about the bold yellow with those pastels (or perhaps just all that additional black? who knows) looks silly.
That said, that is solely an impression of his outfit as a photographic work of art; I believe in bags as first and foremost a functional piece and wouldn’t judge anybody for a bag that wasn’t perfectly coordinated or anything.
Conclusion? What a fabulous outfit.
Re: jayce. b at 9:36 PM: I agree that he is walking a fine line but I think he’s fallen on the right side of it. I do know however that when you ARE this close to the line, people’s opinions will vary considerably w/r/t which side you’re leaning, but hopefully anyone daring enough to take the chance won’t give a flip about some passerby thinking he’s a garish easter egg man.
This is a man who seems like he has something to prove. I don’t know if my eyes are coated in dust or his shoes and bag are, but something needs attending to. And if it’s his shoes and bag, and not my eyes, I’m surprised a man so focused on appearance would overlook such obvious details.
