The pants make him look curvaceous. The shoes are dismal. The bracelets look like they came from Urban outfitters’ bargain bin. Why so much wristware: is he in chains? Tis the year of the watch–get one, and rid yourself of the human bondage.
Really cute guy…incredible style. It’s not what he’s wearing so much as the execution that’s so ridiculously good. At first the bracelets made me want to snicker…looked a little longer and BOOM!…I’m sold. Now I think it’s genius.
May 1st Man revisited. Great to see the uptown and downtown persona. Shows to go ya..the right classic white shirt, with the right cut and proportion and the right jeans on the right guy with the right style and attitude with the right accessories…is always right. It’s simple.
Love his top and accessories, but I’m not all together sure I’m enthusiastic about his bottom half. The rolled pant cuffs do something odd to the shape of his legs. Maybe if the pants were slimmer, it would’ve worked better.
Great accessories but I’m not a fan of the cuffs and shoes. The bracelet was interesting though.
Sartorialist – I’m trying to find Michael Bastian clothing here in Los Angeles. He’s been in the NY Times style section and the latest Town & Country. Where can I see his line locally? His stuff is amazing.
What’s brilliant about his look is the pairing of a hyper slim cut TB shirt with those pre Blimpie diet wide jeans. It’s great that he’s not wearing the predictable slim cut thing head to toe. I think he’s actually really fresh looking. He’s part man couture/part farmer john. He’s actually taken the essence of the casual chic man uniform and reinvented it.
if this guy were wearing boring straight rolled jeans (bootcut? i won’t even go there..) and just a plain watch like everyone else, his picture probably wouldn’t even be up here. the fact that he can throw together an outfit like this and still look super cute is what makes him stylish. i personally think that the bracelets are a much more interesting alternative to what are considered traditionally “masculine” accessories and he def. pulls them off. as for the curvaceous part…i doubt it. this guy’s hips probably measure about 30″ and the bagginess of the pants and the fact that they aren’t filled out just accentuates his slimness… O_o
