Agreed, this is one that pays to enlarge. On first glance he looks a bit of a mess, but in the larger picture you can see how all the elements play together. I have to say whilst the barbour type coat is a funny contrast, it doesn’t really go to well with the rest of what he is wearing (which is pretty damn refined)
honestly- this is one of the most original people i have seen on this blog in a long while- you really get the sense of this guy-and that he’s having a ball and doesn’t take himself too seriously- he made me smile.
These pants are the perfect defense against those restaurants who have their workers out front scrubbing down the sidewalks with bleach, then you walk by and get little splashy bleach flecks on your cuffs–hate that! Anyway, this photo makes me happy. Thanks.
This guy is so casually cool! I look how he looks so laid back and easy going. As the anonymous post above implied, you really do get a sense of his inner personality and not only what’s on the inside.
I love lifestlye pics that capture the essence of the person in the frame :)
frankly, I don’t like the pants (at all) but I think this guy looks fantastic. so much style, creativity and verve. then I see the blandly pretty creature just above, who took a look straight off a runway and mashed it up with a couple of other vague trends, and all I think is…yawn.
O.K. This is where the man makes the clothes. I like this guy. He seems warm, a “gentle”man. I’m not sure what silhouettes are lurking underneath, but what the heck, he has a genuineness to him that out spirits any clothing hits & misses list.
Why is it that all the black men that you portray are dressed so outlandishly? All of the avatars of classic men’s style on your blog are white. NYC is full of stylish black men who don’t dress like clowns, gigolos, or pimps. Why not show some of us?
Gosh. This is an awesome look. The hat – the coat – the yellow color at the bottom of the pants – and the layers in between…plus the brass belt buckle. Reminds me of a uniform of some kind. I’d join that army.
I love the coat, which I believe is a John Partridge Trenchland minus the shoulder cape, but not combined with the rest that he is wearing. The rest of the outfit would have looked better without the coat, and the coat would have looked better combined with tweed…
