The jeans ruined it. Why couldn't he have worn a nice pair of blue or gray or tan slacks? Cotton, wool, whatever. Anything is better than beat up raggedy old jeans. It makes him look like a 17yo who thinks it is cool to dress like you don't have any self-respect. It seems like these days men dress like children; they have no maturity, no elegance, no respect for other people. This is the kind of look that makes me hate American style, and I'm natural born. No excuses.
I have read Sart say that he often times concentrates on part of a look or a feeling that inspires him in the subjects of his photographs. I assume that's the case here. Great hair, facial hair, coat, and vest. Even the jeans aren't bad. A white tee shirt in and of itself can be cool under a jacket as well as the collar standing up on a blazer. However, the low slung jeans with the white t-shirt hanging below the cardigan which is left hanging mid torso is ATROCIOUS! It makes this man who is cleary in excellent shape look like he has a beer belly.
Perfection, the pairing of the blazer with the vest and jeans is sublime! The white shirt is such a contrast but it works very well, given that they grey blazer is striped. Definitely making a fashion statement, it doesn't have to be a collared shirt, a plain white T-shirt can exude elegance as well! Bravo
I'm not sure if I like this or not. I like the colour combination, grey and blue, but it lacks something for me to say, "Ah, bingo!" It looks a bit sloppy…the t-shirt underneath isn't doing anything for me.
what a nice-looking man. love the blazer & vest, and the white pocket square that matches the tshirt is the most subtle but most effective part of this outfit. without it, i dont think this would work as well.
I like the idea of putting the the blazer over the knit vest or cardigan he has on with a t-shirt and jeans, but I think that the boxy-ness of the blazer and then the print just kind of makes me want to draw a histogram on him.
I'm not sure if I like the matching vest or not. I think the jacket is structurally and texturally so strong, it can pull off this mixed looked all by itself. It doesn't need the matching vest to do that. I mean I think a vest is good, but maybe a black or brown one. A leather one. That would really be stunning. To match his hair.
very well put together! Love the shades of colour arrangement he has going on. Especially the 'checks' on the blazer.I like how the vest and t-shirt are pee-ka-booing out from underneath. Good fit of jeans too. Good eye Scott!!
It's nice, because he's young and handsome. I think it won't look well on anynone older, chubbier or not so pretty. In Polish there is a proverb "Ĺ‚adnemu we wszystkim Ĺ‚adnie", which means that "pretty one looks always pretty no matter what he/she is wearing". And that's it in this case, I guess.
I can't say I like it. The jacket is somewhat boxy and I don't really like the mix between the formal pocket square and the casual T-shirt. I think I'm too conservative for popped collars on tweed jackets.
Great! I absolutely love the beautiful sports coat with the vest. So warm and rich in texture and feel. Just a simple outfit with the white t-shirt and jeans, but so comfortable and cool. No doubt he feels great wearing it. Love it :)
usually not a big fan of t-shirts under jackets, especially not with such heavy fabric, in this case it works! the "average joe" jeans (which I love but seem harder to find these days?!) the nice cardigan and the fit but not too tight jacket…great look
This is definitely a more guy friendly fashion statement. Some time designers are disconnected from real men and design for only the metro man.
I really like the jacket and vest combo. The blue jeans and white T are a James Dean throw back. What more can a guy want. Stylinsh enough to catch a ladies eye, comfortable enough to wear regularly, and machismo so your buddies don't give you a hard time.
Not bad. He has basically "dressed and smartened up" his t-shirt, knit vest, and jeans with a rather smart jacket for a slightly more grown up and formal look. Nothing revolutionary or extraordinary but quite pleasing on a young and attractive man. I don't understand what people are objecting to.
Scott, This is a very attractive man, originally, attractively and stylishly turned out, yet not in a contrived way; this shot was well worthwhile taking and sharing with all of us. What I can no longer understand are all the negative comments you receive on these 'comments' columns. can't your readers keep the negativity to themselves and save their comments for what they enjoy? As long as 'it's' style, allow everyone to have their own signature, at least! I don't believe you've ever exposed us to 'tacky,' and for that I thank you, because there is far too much of that out there, and fighting tacky, is, I believe, the entire purpose of your work?! Bravo. robert
The man is definitely going for a casual elegant look. The sloppy white t-shirt, un-tucked, kills it. The white t-shirt doesn't give it a James Dean flavor, it gives it a Hank Hill (King Of The Hill) flavor.
The man can't make a decision and commit. Jeans & t-shirt or formal? The combination of the two doesn't make for casual. It makes for ephemeral chic. Let's face it, without the sweater, jacket and square, the look wouldn't hold. Without the jeans and tshirt, the formal elements can better stand on their own as bespoke, quality, and design. The popped collar works… as a gimmick. Take away the nice man and your left with a glorified frat boy.
I love the blazer, the pocket square, cardigan and even the white t-shirt . . . but the jeans just ruin it. If he were to wear dark washed jeans it would be different. The light wash makes it seem childish and careless. He's a very good looking man, but he would look dapper if he took the time to choose a darker wash.
Okay, I am a little tired of people taking the no-matching rule too far. I like to keep things interesting with contrasts as well, but sometimes keeping it simple with color coordination works out beautifully. This man is an example.
Some commenters appear to need corrective eye surgery. There's not a hint of beer belly in this outfit. The sleeves on that jacket are fantastic, and the jeans are executed just right. So he looks like a fashion plate, so what? This looks like his daily uniform, not something put together by a stylist…and he wears it SO WELL.
