    This photo–structured clothing, heavy shoes and bag, dark colors, cropped hair, etc.–presents a jarring counterpoint to the one directly above: a telling statement on the ranges of individual style.

    I love the look! Everything is just the perfect length, and I love how the square watch adds just enough of quirkiness. Love his glass, too!

    love the combination of the sailor stripes with the navy blue cape which has such an awesome construction.

    so effortless and chic!

    interesting. since i was going to post that i could not accept the cape i wanted to point out everything else that i liked- and it seems that everyone else likes the same thing!- even down to the hair, glasses and of course, boots!
    i thought maybe the hair was too "normal" to comment on, but for some reason, its comment-able

    it takes great confidence for a man to wear a cape….talk about a modern day Clark Kent! love the peek of navy stripes –
    and the duo-tone bag really complements the cape and boots

    I'd say he pulled it off with ease. Good job.

    Too many great details. What a delightful photo. Thanks!

    That stripe of red on the upturned cuff reminds one of Levi-Strauss jeans that featured highly-prized red stitching when the cuffs were turned-up like this, does anyone remember this from the old skinhead/suedehead days of the early 1970s?

    Fun! The monkstrap boots, watch, and the top-buttoned cape.

    Just love the cape, it's lovely.
    And the navy and brown bag? I used to have one like these one.

    Unique and noteworthy!
    This is how you wear cropped pants without looking like a fashion victim.

    That bright watch is the perfect touch to his outfit.
    Another great shot

    great trousers length ratio, perfect for the shoes!

    The cape… well, works on him… but it screams "look at me, I'm oh so rad", albeit elegantly. :P

    Nice individual pieces, but overall pretty bad. It's a little too much look, and the proportions are not flattering. I really thought this was a woman at first glance.

    this is a perfect illustration of how you can combine supposedly feminine clothing article such as cape and still look very masculine and cool! Great Style!

    this is eye opening for me, haven;t seen a man wearing cape in this sort of fabric that looks so effortless… as though it is part of him

    looking through some old sartorialist posts, just notice he is Ritchie Chan, the guy behind Project White T-Shirt. That explains why he looks so stylish in this photo. Really inspirational :D

    No. That cape is really girly, as they say in the playground.

    Plus, it’s a woman’s cape. A man’s cape would button in the other direction.
