    The coat as a stand-alone piece is great. The rest is all a bit too tribal for my liking. Interesting nevertheless.

      I was going to say “hey there, indian!”. At first sight, I thought he was wearing camel shoes. But I really like the outfit!

    I don’t like the woman’s jumper, or what appears to be a woman’s jumper, worn over his pants.

    Such awesome jewelry around his neck! Great colors, and the fur trim is great!

    I love the necklace, it adds just the right amount of color.

    I love this. The silhouette, the colours and the accessories.

    I am not so sure about the furry/feathery thing but other than that, I think he looks grand :)

    The cut is so modern but the pieces are not from this time! It boggles the mind, but I appreciate the uniqueness!

    quite an outfit…shame he doesn’t look a little happier!

    It’s not that he looks bad, I am just not sure?

    The dress on this man : no.

    Really unconventional, a mix of western style and some from african tribes.

    It’s not awesome, or amazing, or original or nice it just looks silly. He doesn’t carry it off at all, only someone of David Bowie’s calibre can do this.

      Trying too hard. Nice coat though. The dress (?) under the coat…..not so much.

    Call me old fashioned……. But is he really wearing a dress under the fur coat?

    Nice! Really nice!

    Well … it’s a style.

    This man has style, weather its mainstream or not.

    Exciting color for a shearling coat, especially with those boots. The fur trimmed piece is more of an accessory than a garment. Considering the rest of the outfit I remember
    Coco Chanel’s motto ” Look in the mirror before you leave and remove one accessory.”
    Or maybe two.

    The LV bag unnecessarily feminizes it a little too much for my taste. So does the (fun?) fur trimming

    He is certainly making a statement.

    That would probably look awesome on a girl…

    Love the colours! And the bag worn under the coat- not sure if it’s deliberate but I do this all the time (accidentally, mostly) and love the look of it peeping out here :)

    He must have looked good in the Valentino exhibition ;)

    I love it until the Louis bag.

    So nice. A manly man in a womanized outfit.

    This is my boyf! for anyone who has commented on the coat, thought it might be useful to know that it’s an old(ish) Loewe one that we found in brand-new condition on Portobello market!

    Looks like he lost a bet and had to wear his girlfriends outfit.

    I usually appreciate a bold look – and I love costume dressing… but this just isn’t working. It doesn’t even look like HE thinks it’s working!


    February 22, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    I love and would support anyone doing their thing. I don’t much like this particular thing, but that’s unimportant.

    althought the color of the necklace goes well it feels sort of cheesy, the fake “tribal-”y thing.

    I’m really digging this look! Part vaquero, part guarani, with a hint of DDL in There will be blood… a modern take on 70s flair. Hard to pull off but he exudes both strength/manliness and enough of an easy-going vibe for it to not seem over the top or uncomfortable.
    However, I have a feeling that once the coat is off, it just feels very hippyish (not that it’s a bad thing), notwithstanding the fact that we are in the dark about the fur-trimmed tunic’s arm length (batwings, long sleeve, short sleeve or sleeves Ă  la The Flinstones?), so I guess all the ingredients have to be present for it to work as a look… in other words, that gorgeous luxurious coat really ties that outfit together.
    Well done sir!

    P.S.: that’s two gorgeous men’s shearling coats you’ve shared as of recently. You’re already halfway there for a “If you’re thinking about men’s shearling coats” entry.
    The other one I’m referring to is the gorgeous emerald one featured here:

    I love the look, but I just really want to know what he’s listening to! This must have a good soundtrack. Maybe “I’m gonna pop some tags”?

    OMG, disaster!

    I’m ok with mixings, but you have to find at least a thin line to connect it all…otherwise it seems Carnival to me!
