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…
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.
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. http://thestatementpiece.blogspot.com/
…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!
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!!
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.
