    Very cool and simple… even if I would match it with chinos instead of jeans :)

    Do the Parisians know how to dress! The tie on the cardigan brings this boyish look to a special place.

    Clever combination with the cap and belted cardigan, the unexpectancy of it makes it work!

    effortless and casual look. Great shot!

    I’ll bet that the cardigan is a woman’s. Belted women’s cardigans are quite common. Belted men’s cardigans don’t exist (as far as I can tell). Either way, it looks great and I will be keeping my eye out for an oversized woman’s belted cardigan at the second hand shops.

      There’s tons of places that sell belted cardigans for men. Topman sometimes has it with their guest designers; ASOS always has some but they’re not always a classic cut–too feminine or artistic; Massimo Dutti carries very simple, classic ones. Your best bet is too look from now until November with all the Fall collections.

    that is a very feminine sweater.

    He looks like a rapper with a passion for high fashion. I’ve seen those kind of tie up sweaters on women before, but never men. Everything else in his outfit is so cool and hard edged, and then his sweater adds a touch of softness.

    Love this man’s style! I think it’s actually pretty brave for a man to wear a cardigan like this, as it can come across as too feminine, but he pulls it off nicely!

    @simbarshe ‘house of jedi’ …classic ha ha

    honestly while this doesn’t look completely awful on this cat i think you have to have a certain build to pull something like this off. regardless of height, you have to have a slight build, dare i say waifish…or feminine

    a more athletic, muscular male would look retarded with this thing on (somebody like myself, for instance)

    . . .i think the neutral color is helping him though



    July 21, 2012 at 12:31 am

    I love that feminine touch on a guy’s look ! It’s good that guys are mixing it up and changing the codes of appropriate gender dressing. I have to do an oral presentation for my class at FIT and I’ll probably include this picture :)

    Love the camel with dark denim. Never occurred to me until I read the comments that that type of sweater is often considered “feminine.” He’s a convincing case that, perhaps, the style should be embraced by more men!

    Like his style. Esp the cardigan :D

    The simplicity of his outfit is pleasant. Nice detail.

  43. Juanita

    July 21, 2012 at 5:11 am

    This looks so effortless on him and comfotable to boot but ………. I don’t think the ‘belted cardigan’ is a look to be easily carried off by one and all! Approach with caution.

    “Effortless” as in – doing something difficult so well, that you make it look easy, or as in – didn’t make any effort? I’m just sayin’…

    Wow. He is gorgeous. Yes, I have seen men belt their cardi’s this way before. I think it looks very Zen.

    love the hat too…nice!

  56. Wallace

    July 21, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    I think pairing it with a dark jean and peak cap makes it more masculine. Otherwise you run the risk of looking like a bad cross dresser.

    Camel is such a hard color to pull off! Blonds probably do it best.

  63. Suzanne Nelson

    July 21, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    It’s the hat AND perfectly shaped sunglasses that totally make it. Terrific styling, not everyone could pull this off but he does – brilliantly.

    Normally, I can get behind fuddy-duddy, but not in this case. The belt just doesn’t work for me.

  71. princessglee

    July 22, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    I like it. Yes, it’s typically feminine. Maybe he was just chilly and put on the nearest warm thing.

    July 22, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    Oh yeah, this is making me think of Kanye West in his Celine blouse at Coachella.
    I’m calling his top a blouse because if he were my little brother I’d tease him like that, kiss him on the forehead and tell him how great he looks.

    The cardigan is a bit feminine, but he looks comfortable so whatever works for him.

  81. Alison

    July 23, 2012 at 2:08 am

    He’s really pulling the belted cardigan off! I don’t think that would be possible in a masculine way, but it really looks great — I love it!

    Not entirely convincing; the shawl collar is actually very nice but he should ditch the belt – too fussy.

    I love the sense of formality provided by the belt combined with the sense of defiance provided by the wayfarers and the hat. Absent any of these elements I don’t think this outfit would be special. Although, maybe if he lost the hat and wore something more interesting than a grey crew… I’d personally like to see polka dots.

    Ugh, I’ve owned about 3-5 variations of this cardigan. (I’m a woman.) And I do not pull it off as well as he does! But it is a comfy thing to reach for.

    All Saints has been selling cool belted and drapey cardigans for a couple of years now. Some of their cardigans (I have one) is held closed with a big safety pin.

    I like clothing I can wear to work and that also looks somewhat casual.
