On the Street……Fifth Ave., New York

This is the first time I have seen a men’s jacket with a peplum-ish waist detail that looks reasonably normal.

    I don’t know what it is, but I love the combination of black and green in the spring. Maybe it reminds me of life emerging from death.

    actually more than normal, quite attractive. he sports it well

    He is a sweet young man! Thanks for the front and back views! The green color of the jacket is wonderful, as are his stance and smirk. Also the green on the building – love the artistic quality of the photos – with the taxi and spire in the background

    the green jacket is nifty. i’m kind of digging that from the back it has a bit of a doublet silhouette. i’m not digging the rolled cuffs on his jeans. is he going wading?

    “reasonably normal” compared to Michael Jacksons leather jackets maybe.

    I love the cuffed pants and the flat shoes. Great look paired together!

    What a terrific doublet effect in back, it has possibilities… also the green leather–a real double take on that one.

    Looks like a styler from the front and a woman from the back. That waist detail blows it.

    Cool jacket, nice details, beautiful colour, it looks really good on him. I like it when men use colour well. I’m not crazy about the rolled cuffs either but at least he’s wearing jeans that fit reasonably ok and he’s not exposing his underwear, the waistband isn’t around his thighs or the crotch around his knees; i really hope that tend will die a death this summer…

    He should give the jacket back to his sister. I love the intense color of the jeans though.

    love this jacket…reminds me of the jackets worn during the Italian Renaissance…did he mention where he found this jacket or who is the designer? I like everyone love the green color…kind of a mix between green apple and puce…lol…but it works..and love his attitude…style is 90% attitude.

    Love the jacket – the back has a doublet Tudor/Toreador look, and the front has that long zipper! It’s the perfect green to with the black – not too sure about the shoes and the rolled up trousers, but a good look all-in-all.

    I disagree. Yes: Gorgeous face. Great shoes. The green of the jacket is beautifu. He is dandy enough, however without the “peplum-ish waist detail”. It’s different yes, but not wonderful in my opinion.

    I can’t tell if he just looks exactly like Cillian Murphy, or if he is, in fact, Cillian Murphy. Either way he’s gorgeous.

    I wish he was wearing a more substantial shoe, or even a boot – a nice ankle boot w/ a thin sole and small heel.

    Zipper placement confirms that it is a woman’s jacket…sometimes men can pull off women’s items just fine, othertimes…well, it just looks like they raided their sister’s closet.

    There aren’t many guys who can pull off the jacket length along with the cuffed pants, yet he makes it work. And that splash of green in an otherwise monochromatic look is brilliant.

    I am not against it per se, but I do think there’s a good chance that’s a woman’s jacket. I love the color.

    You haven’t seen that on a men’s jacket because it is a women’s jacket. The zipper is on the opposite side.

    With that face (and hair!), he could be wearing a plum velvet duster with a frothy lace ascot and I’d think he was perfect. I’m guessing that jacket (borrowed from the women’s dept. no?) is just a bare hint of the attitude within…

    From the back, it looks like a jacket for women, but from the front it’s a men’s jacket…

    I wonder if the bag was an accessory or a purchase… and if it was a purchase what was inside… if it was an accessory what was inside? Yes this has filled me with wonder, and judging by his gaze this was his intent. Wonderful!

    I’m not so into the peplum waist and would like the jacket better without it. But I love the front view- black contrasting with the green and the white on the shoes. Even the shopping bag looks good with it. Very nice!

    This jacket looks great, from the front. You can’t go wrong with a simple, body-hugging leather jacket.
    From the back? Sorry, but it looks like something Tonya Harding would ‘take to the ice’ with.

    it’s our step-grandfather’s. my brother found the jacket while rummaging around gramps country house.

    Either zips have a different ‘handedness’ in different parts of the world, or this is definitely a man’s jacket. The moving part of the zip is on the (model’s) left hand side – which is exactly where it would be in the UK on a man’s garment.

    For the record, this is not a one hit wonder, he always dresses this good (and better). And it doesn’t even looks as if he made an effort. Unfair.
