why do people on the streets just dress up so nicely? are they all models or designers or fashion editors? wearing clothes like that down the street of a normal town is bound to receive some awkward glances.
I love this. This is me. I wear some shirts with the wide collars. I love the brown shoes with the black pants. I love the… everything. The only thing about this that isn’t me has got to be the piping on his jacket. I don’t know that I could pull it off. But, I love this look.
It wouldn’t have occurred to me to roll my pants with this particular outfit but it does work well with the silhouette. The pulling at his shirt buttons bothers me a little- as if the shirt is too tight. Every other item looks great. There’s a (nice) suggestion of the Dandy without taking anything over the top, which shows great consideration and style.
miaow! they sure do grow ‘em cute on the left bank…i think the piping works- its draws together the jacket and the cardigan ust enough without being too matchy matchy. and “nervous”? where are you getting nervous from? his steely gaze? his chiselled cheekbones? this boy is working it!
I find the “little things” about this outfit vaguely irritating. This guy seems to have tried just a little to hard. For instance, the color and cut of the jacket are impeccable and the functional buttonholes are a nice touch as a result why even bother with the piping? the piping causes it to become more dated with every passing moment. Secondly the shirt attracts an enormous amount of attention due to how tight it is the collar size and the pattern. The size is simply unfortunate and the and either the collar or the pattern would have sufficiently jazzed up his outfit, the combination seems overblown. While I think he should have worn different shoes with this outfit they do look a nice pair to own. At the end of the day this could have been made more striking by subduing it just a little. This guy already looks pretty distinctive and the basics of the outfit are already very good but the details make it look as if hes dying for attention. A little more subtlety could have helped an already excellent outfit.
would have been even more perfect without the piping … but I can understand why he has done this … it’s seen on boys and girls trousers in today’s fashion …Looks good on very tall people ; for some it makes the legs look shorter … :-//
no hint of nervousness.i think he has this strong, confident gaze. love everything about him including the plaid shirt with the nice big collar and chequered socks. the details on his jacket’s lapel and front pockets lends a nice touch to the overall look. brilliant look!
This is possibly one of my favorite shots ever. really. It’s a totally wearable outfit. He looks so elegant, whimsical and hip at the same time. I EVEN like the bag. I’m in love with this man and his fabulous style!
i love all of it……….except the messenger bag. Sorry. It’s a little casual for the look. That aside, it is awesome. Initially I was a tad sceptical regarding the width of the collar but the more I look at it, the more I am liking it. The outfit has a great sense of balance and the penny loafers are just gorgeous. I LOVE his hair – nice and thick.
piping works for me too on the lines of creating a nice perimeter for the jacket to stand out against the vest. really love the whole outfit and the bag isn’t bothersome as much as functional. i believe those are cords which make for an interesting fabric texture mix. my favorite part is the slim roll up of the pant legs and the peaking socks/shoe combination.
What I really love about this is the slightly rumpled material matched with the (seemingly) carelessly cuffing of the trousers. Classical tailoring with a more modern twist + a couple of more fun pieces (shirt, shoes, socks) = brilliant style.
Ewww! Don’t like the summery plaid with autumnal grey. And while I like cuffs in general, I don’t like them when the pants look too short. (I don’t care if the whole fashionista community feels it necessary to admire them.) I am amazed at what sheep most of the commenters are. Only Daniel seems to have noticed that the shirt is too small and tight. Oh yes, someone else noticed that the shirt collar is hideous. Duh.
I thought that the shirt was very Ben Sherman, especially buttoned to the neck. I love the effort, and the shoulders of the jacket fit impeccibly. I just don’t like the messenger. It looks like a forgotten detail, like he’s off to uni (maybe he is?).
I think big, pointy collars are totally rad. Like sideburns. They are superfly.
I always wanted a jacket with piping–makes me think of Patrick McGoohan in “The Prisoner,” who had a great look, I always thought. I know that the costumes in “The Prisoner” probably referenced something else, but I have no other associations….
The pose and composition make me think of a YSL print campaign from a couple (2?) years ago. Were you thinking that at all Sart, or am I pulling that out of nowhere? Maybe the title just got me thinking Rive Gauche.
YOU’RE RIGHT! MAYBE I WAS READING INTO IT TOO MUCH, I TEND TO DO THAT. COMING BACK TO THE MET ANY TIME SOON? I ASKED YOU A QUESTION ABOUT HOW YOU APPROACH SOMEONE WHEN ASKING TO PHOTOGRAPH THEM, WHEN YOU WERE AT THE MET EARLIER THIS YEAR. U KNOW WITH THE LADY WHO WEARS THE ALL BLACK AND THE HUGE VEIL. I BELIEVE HER NAME IS DIAN PURNETT?
Love this! Piping not too over the top. Shirt not radical, merely youthful. The cuff attention is great, the shoe/sock action’s fabulous, the bag is fine and acutally practical (unlike the insane turkish blue bag devoid of any handles featured a while back, making it little more than an attractive piece of leather being carried around). As for you collar fascists, you’re declaring your taste, not rules. This guy is really stylish regardless of details we don’t personally like.
Absolutely LOVE this! The shirt buttoned all the way up sans a tie is awesome and that jacket/vest combo is amazing. Love the cuffed pants too! Other than the outfit, this guy looks like the *perfect size* I wonder how tall he is…
