Even before i read The Clever Pup’s comment i thought ‘head in Nova Scotia, feet in Nassau’. i’d love to know what he was thinking when he got dressed and i love that it clearly wasn’t what most other people on Fifth Ave were thinking…
I like looks that effectively pull off the “too short” look, but this one goes a little overboard for me. Though I like his use of color (especially the scarf), everything from his pants to his coat up to the outer vest is too much “doesn’t fit” look for me.
i like this look for a very casual day out, possibly museum hopping a lunch a friend’s house the bare ankles get me to imagine the layers coming off… hat, scarf, vest and going into a backpack and there you have a lovely outfit
I’d be happier if he’d tuck in his shirt. Untucked shirts under blazers almost always read to me either awkward, studied, too fashiony or all of the above. And, although I think he does it well, I do wonder if his ankles don’t get cold, assuming it’s cold enough to warrant the vest over blazer thing.
Agreed. I like this look aside from the missing socks. Dress shoes/oxfords with no socks always look naked to me. I’m a fan of the rolled up pants. It’s sort of biker-chic. I think most guys are capable of pulling of a masculine capri.
I saw this and thought, sh*t, I haven’t been to NYC in weeks. Ha! This look is great, love the short vest transposed onto his funky town sportcoat. Shoes w/ short dark hemmed jean is what is anchoring it – nice job.
Your piece about your father resonated in many ways and was a very sweet simple tribute. My daughter is visiting her travel love in Melbourne, and they are traveling to Sydney as part of their walkabout, so I told them to be nice when you photograph them on the street…
