So nice! I have always adored outfits like this one for men: an elegant jacket with jeans, confortable, easy, good quality. Ageless and timeless. Suitable for both country and the city, Saturday or Tuesday. Simply great.
Love it too. My only question is about the size of the vest : to be able to wear under such a thick vest, it should be larger than your usual fit. So what does happen when you wear the vest with only a shirt ? Doesn’t it become ill-fitted ?
I too like the tie. However, I am not a fan of the outfit. It looks very ordinary. Any American college boy could dress like that. The fix seems boxy and undefined and has written Abercrombie&Fitch all over it. For someone who although he has the financial means does not know how or dare to look any different than a football captain going prep.
good point Sart. I love the little peek of tie out of the bottom, and the meeting of cuffs. I will always be a sucker for a shawl collar cardigan. I am also not a fan of the jeans. A uniform dark wash would have been much more appropriate, in my humble opinion, but that’s criticism for the staff, not the photog. :)
i love love love this look… shoot, i would wear it and i am a girl! i have some nice wide-leg trousers in the same color as the jacket. maybe i’ll get some cool plaid accent for them, like a belt or scarf!
Sweaters and knitwear intimidate me; the textures, colors, and especially the cut/fit is so…well, knitwear is just so different than any other piece of torso clothing, I feel like I don’t know what rules to follow. :(
Can anyone lend some tips for a 20-something, west-coast guy who is afraid of knitwear, but has an irresistible urge to experiment?
it’s still a great American look even if places like abercrombie have spoiled the fun. mr. sart, i would love to see more photos along this vein mixed in with your other work, if you would be so kind. the fact that people are tossing criticism at this outfit makes me think that people somehow view American looks as something second class. what i love about this is if BG puts this in the window again in the year 2037 it’s still going to be well received. and for those of us on a regular joe’s budget, that’s good news.
A bit too American. It looks majorly dated. You’d never find a window like that in Europe. Comparing this [Bergdorfs] to the menswear windows at Selfridges / Harvey Nichols in London it’s just astonishing how reserved the large dept stores in N.Y are.
I love the fabrics but I would prefer the scarf in plaid and no tie – without the scarf obscuring the collar and knot, I think the outfit would come off a little too formal for the casual nature the rest of the clothing is shooting for. I like how the belt avoids the A&F look by not having a big buckle.
Two observations. Firstly, the college scarf is a distraction. The ensemble has enough going-on without it. Secondly, I tend to agree with anon above who suggested that the jacket looks boxy and uninspiring. What I’d like to have seen was (a) a big roll collar on the vest and (b) and a Vivienne Westwood Winter 07-08 cut to the jacket.
I love this look, casual but perfectly coordinated. It’s a look I see on stylish young men in their early 20′s, like my son. I like it so much better than grungy t-shirts, baseball caps, tattered jeans and sneakers.
