    Very nice shoes all round, the second jacket looks like it's been for a spin in the washing machine though!

    Oh I always have something peeking out at my shirtails but this is more likely to be due to scruffiness, not considered styling. Must try harder!

    I love short(er) pant hems. I don't know why. It just comes off looking so fresh.

    Excellent socks.

    I like it, but how strange that the nerd is now celebrated, or maybe the ska-boy of Brixton?

    #1 has killer shoes and sox. him? her? either way, great, and a great way to wear short pants without looking like a TB clone. the other shoes in #1 are equally fab.
    & #2 looks pretty spiffy too.

    Love both pair of shoes and the color/texture of the pant in the 2nd picture but call me old fashioned. Both pants just looked hiked up not hemmed up, especially in the 1st photo where the wearer seems to be missing his/her rear end ..sigh…

    Love the socks in #1. they are socks aren't? If any one have an idea of who makes them will love to know. I have to get me some new socks.

    Great, no more dirty and frayed hemlines. Also you get to show off some strong socks!

    I love your blog, I hinted to my brother so much that I wanted your new book from my birthday and guess what he brought it for me! (I looked in his shopping) I cannot wait to devour it on friday!

    Thank you.

    I like the guy's shoes and socks in the first picture. It is funny because I don't see men dress like that in Spain. They most of the times go with black shoes and black socks.

    The first combination is little strange, but I love the second one. Grey is a nice colour and matches to almost anything.

    How simple can one get? Cut your shorts shorter than all the other guys and people will notice you. Yeah, but…

    Nice shoes though!

    I do really like the fit of the trousers on the first guy, why can't I find trousers I like on me??? Hems are far shorter than I would wear, but when you have socks like that, why not show them off!

    Great shoes and socks in the first pic……sorry the same can't be said for the pant length…..I promise you in 20 years time the flood pant look is going to figure prominently in those photograpic compilations of sartorial misteps along with bell bottoms, sideburns, leisure suits, and frilled evening shirts in pastel colors…….take this from one who once owned a frilled evening shirt….I cringe whenever the family photos come out.

    To be honest, I'd love to have the bag in the second picture. It's probably the most beautiful bag ever to be photographed by you. Too bad it's not shown sharp. But that's ok….!

    I love the hemlines- a bit of a youthful school boy nostalgia. I also love the fact that in both of these shots, a bit of color is peeping out above the waistline. A green horizontal stripe here and blue and yellow vertical stripes there.


    October 7, 2009 at 4:56 pm

    I don't like the first look, at all, what a lack of style. BUT the second look is stunning, love it! ;) @ RioJaneiro by Mario Testino, Hedi Slimane

    …the second jacket looks like it's been for a spin in the washing machine though!

    Interesting. The lining looks like Junya Watanabe MAN. In recent seasons, Junya has utilised shorter trouser hems to great effect, including S/S08's collection, which was described in part as "straight out of the washing machine" by Men's Style

    Thank you for reading this great moment in fashion connections – come again!

    To be honest, the hemlines are like buttons – a little detail that changes fashion up a bit. What I'm really concerned about is in the bottom picture – is that a sagging jacket linking or a shirt?!?

  45. Bookworm

    October 7, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    Aaah! Do I spot red platform pumps with BOWS in the first picture? I seriously want those–they are adorable! Plus I love the short pants and textured socks–very geek-cool.

  46. Cassandra

    I agree these hemlines look so fresh. They are worn just right… and the woman's red velvet/suede bow shoes are lovely.

    It's so great to see shorter trousers with no break. My husband tries to explain that that's how he wants his pants altered and the tailors look at him like he's crazy. Only extremely experienced and high quality tailors know that that's how men's trousers should be worn. None of this bunching up of material at the ankles!!

    Love the socks, the red Minnie Mouse shoes, the blurry red bag. The coloured stripes remind me of a jockey's racing silks.

    The too short pants in the first picture would be bad enough, but they're BAGGY too! That guy is walking on the thin edge of something.

    Possibly he's saying: These shoes are so great I can pull off ANYTHING with them on and you'll think I'm cool. The colors ARE cool.

    On the second guy the turned up jacket hem is kind of interesting, but pushing it. The gray loafers are excellent.

    Gorgeous purse on the ground.

    I like both examples, those socks he obviously picked to be shown, and he does it well. I think it is a good look as the pants' legs are very slim, and they accentuate the wearer's physiques. Great job! I do like those gray loafers. Jorge from WPB

    I really like both pics. The first is very PAUL SMITH. The second is great pants and shoes.
    It looks like a shorter pant hem is here to stay. The same with no socks. Like it or not, a slimmer pant with a higher hem, is very slimming!! And who doesn't like slimming effects??

    I like these two guys and the "floods" (Thom Browne) look. ……BUT, you've got to be pretty lanky, young and in the fashion industry to pull it off. If I wore this to work as the VP of Marketing for a tech company, my colleagues would think I had lost my mind. Plus, I'm too "big" and old to wear something like this – 6-2 and a 33 waist. I guess it's like women that are too "fat" at a size 6.

    The jacket is from JW Man, F/W 08, that leaves the lining externally by the way. I have it in another colour :)

    Both pants´lengths so not flatter any body type in fact cuts the figure shortening it. I think nobody likes to be ""flattened" instead of "flattered"
