    another great example of sartorial variations on a personal motif.

    Hot gorgeous is he?!? That first pic is amazing! Are those sweatpants? With a furry/feathered top under a herringbone double-breasted blazer?!? OMGosh, that is unreal! He truly makes it work.

    And I fell in love with his man-bag the last time I saw his pic! HOT HOT HOT!

    Love his use of colour, pattern and texture. Beautiful blazers, especially the one in the top photo!

    In the first photo, is he wearing a women’s blazer (circa 1990) over grey sweatpants? I think I’ve seen that look on the TV weather girl who thinks her bottom half won’t be on camera…
    And don’t even get me started on the blue-fur-chest-hair-shirt thing. He’s sportin’ a whole lot ‘o look and I’m lovin’ it!

    He is so boyishly handsome. I love a statement jacket. I really like the colors he’s wearing in the 1st look. I like calming colors. I was trying to figure what his shirt is in the 1st picture, now i see it’s some sort of hair…it’s very interesting. i like the way it looks like some sort of print in the photo.

    he has an extreme sense of style! in the good way!

    now, we’re talking..the nerve to match a jacket with sweats..

    on the bottom, nice pant color, and kudos for over-fitting the jacket making you wince in a world where everyone attempts the all to safe, and now pedestrian, perfect cut.

    second tri-mester look is in.

    all in all, very hot.

    I like his top outfit more than the one in the lower pic; there is something to be said about the color coordination there.

    Though I wouldn’t necessarily make the same statement on myself, it totally works for him – esp as handsome as he is.

    hc, You crack me up. Tri-mester? I find myself agreeing with you more and more. I like that the colors don’t match at all. Playful, but not over the top.

    I was also told that you don’t wear sweats out of the house!!! But this is so fantastics I am starting to be converted!!! It helps that they are a great fit!!

    OK…I am totally lost here, I find both outfits hideous. Since when was this blog about how ‘cute’ or “handsome” someone is…elegance and style still have some basic criterias. His outfits remind me of some of the stuff some of my fellow student were putting together in my first year at studio bercot…give me a well cut suit or jeans and converse any day over this

    he is handsome.. but nothing has prompted me on here to say something as his furry blue shirt has! oh dear!!

    Hey, in the second pic, he breaks a rule by buttoning both buttons! Let’s start a riot!!!

  35. indigo warrior

    February 19, 2009 at 10:18 pm

    Proves a point – mohair goes with everything. OK, it could be brushed alpaca (that would be softer). I wonder if he knits?

    Nice buttons on the bottom jacket.

    The pants are from DOM which is in Le Marais. They are awesome sweat pants that look more like sleeves from a hoody but for your legs.

  37. Stephanie

    February 19, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    The first look is interesting…the sweater is rather odd. Loving the second look. Both jackets fit like a dream.
    But whatever, he is beautiful!! A delight to the eyes!

    He’s the kind of man I look straight in the eyes and seductively lick my lips at . . . while I’m on the train pulling away and he’s still on the subway platform, of course!

    Oh the sweet agony of frustration, welcome back!

    I like the effort but am not really a fan. Like the top half of the first photo and the individual pieces of the bottom photo but not together. It just suffers from trying to hard IMO.

    He has a great style! Anyone who can pull of a tailored jacket and sweatpants has great style! I already admired him on garance about a week ago. His face reminds me a little bit of James Franco.

    put grey jogging trousers with a suit jacket and a furry shirt on the average guy and he will look like a complete twerp. the lesson to be learned here ? … if you’re pretty (and preferably work in fashion) the normal rules do not apply.

    What can I say about the hair shirt in the first picture? This is something the ballet dancer, Rudolf Nureyev might have worn in Afternoon of a Faun ballet. Style means sometimes you really have to be daring and go for it!!

    Second picture is very Ivy league outfit.

    He looks great – When i first saw those fuzzy sweaters in the runway videos i thought they were cool but had some trouble picturing them on the street.. he does it perfectly, casually “no big deal”. Like his Portfolios too.
    Bet there’s going to be a debate about the pants (the Ugly American sweats thing) i just got a pair of Yohji’s Y-3 version and am pretty happy with them in an all black dress ‘em Up combo.
