What's he got on underneath his well worn jacket? I sure would like to know. He looks to be fully suited (can't really tell) or he's wearing a mix of separates sans jacket. Nice looking man, will built, great hair, casual sunglasses on head. I think I would have liked it all, but the outerwear portion of his ensemble pretty much leaves us all guessing. As far as the face and the photograph go, I love them. Do you have anymore apres Ralph Lauren shots? Thank you Scott.
Who is this guy? I see him at all the Polo shows but I must not be in the know. What I do know tho is he is always impeccably dressed with a mix of old and new Ralph Lauren and classic American style. I wish I can age as gracefully as this man. He looks like the gentleman I wanna grow to become.
Scott, this customized Belstaff jacket looks a bit weird. I thought it was a vintage Trailmaster, but the left pocket alignment is off. It looks like it could be one of their new BRAD jackets, but it's waxed cotton – not leather, and looks too worn in. Did you find out if it was a limited edition, or vintage? Whatever it is, the customization is a great touch too.
Great jacket at any rate. and That scarf is nothing to sniff at either. I dearly hope that this guys rides.
Love that this biker jacket can look so cool and oozes character. I have a girlfriend's 30 year old, slightly fitted, hip lenth, leather roadbike jacket that gets heaps of positive comments whenever I wear it. It's black, slightly scuffed at the edges, has simple lines, is completely weatherproof and I'll love it to death….In fact, it will probably out-live me! Love your site, Ciao, Linda B., Australia. x x
Hey Scott, great shot, and I enjoyed this man's look in your book as well. Just finished reading an article in the WSJ on the very topic you addressed several days ago: a movement to enable fashion lovers to purchase garments almost immediately following their runway debut. Cheers! Victoria
I am always bitching about how great timeless pieces are, make good investments in good clothes, blah blah blah. This guy is doing everything right, wearing wonderful clothes, and yet there is no "there" there. This outfit needs an edge, something that breaks the norm. Was it Diana Vreeland that said "Fashion one can buy, style one must own"?
I used to work at Ralph Lauren, and this is one of the key people there. I can't remember what his name is or role (thinking design for men's), but I was there in 96-97', so he has been there a long time. All the men there dress very well.
This is John Wrazej – SVP of Men's Sportswear for Ralph Lauren – always a calculated ensemble, every day. Makes you feel bad for eating too many M&M's in the office (as all RL offices keep a bowl full for employees and guests to frequent). Amazing style, priceless to watch him flit around the office each day. . .
I looking at this guy and am seriously dubious about the whole Belstaff thing. I've had two Belstaff jackets over the years (set with pants as well) Still have my original 60s one. I just ressurected it a little recently. Then I got online looking for the nearest place I could get some wax for it. And Wow! It's all the rage for fashonistas now. I like them because they are sturdy and good for bikes. Never knew they would get to this stage. The guy above may of actually rode a bike once but if he did he must of gone slow so he could look at himself in his glowing mirrors.
It's the Belstaff Trailmaster Legend Jacket. It's the one Will Smith wore in 'I Am Legend.' I have the same jacket, sans patches,A few years ago, when I was shopping for my Belstaff jacket, their web site said that a New York flagship store was coming soon. It never did.
All fashion, in its way, is a pose, I suppose (sorry). And, in the fashion/style business, posing is a kind of inside competition and seduction. But, for most guys, the real trick is to not let everyone see the pose, especially when we’re wearing “country” clothing. On the other hand, Ralph Lauren made an empire out of this kind of look, and it’s hard to argue with a billionaire designer about his thing: like arguing with Einstein about E=mc whatever.
