I love this look, not only because it is so interesting, but I also frolic in plaid from time to time. Plaid shirts not tucked in with skinny jeans is such a mandatory look for me. Sartorialist, thank you for bringing us this blog, it is so inspirational. I am in the process of searching for a plaid piece similar to this stylish man’s as we speak. Anonymous, I think the plaid shirt is for the boys, as well as the girls. I have seen plenty of girls here in the city, wearing their cute, madras plaid tops and tapered jeans.
He has that Asian-cool thing going. Yopu know when you see young Japanese teenagers wearing a mish-mash of styles jumbled together but somehow it all works? I don’t love the outfit if you were to take it apart but he has the attitude to make it look cool. :-D
there’s something disjointed about this … something in the belt area, but i can’t put my finger on it. the shoes save the day though – those are sharp. they bring together his hair and glasses and attitude … and highlight the frivolity/snappiness of the jacket.
Sorry Scott but it is not a picture which you took in NYC but in .. Paris I recognized the parisian building / architecture and one of the girls in the background is a very efficient girl working at Michele Montagne’s press office in paris.
