i don’t typically care for white pants, but here, somehow, my prejudice doesn’t even factor. maybe it is the boots with the gloves and hat or maybe it is just him – whatever it is, it works. he looks so so cool.
The gloves, the scarf and the shoes are the 3 pops of color in this outfit, everything else is just the perfect mat and frame for them. The coat and pants seem to fit him very well. It is interesting how men’s fashion magazines always tell you to get leather jackets, but nothing below the waist; and here is one presumably fashion insider doing the opposite and pulling it off. Great job! Jorge from W Palm Beach
Despite the lack of differing textures, the variations of color amongst the leather coat, gloves and shoes looks ultra-refined and polished. The paleness of the brown and green allowed for the creation of a “light” look despite the usage of such a heavy material. The seperation of color provided from the sleeves peeking out and the ascot prevent the outfit from looking washed out.
Boots are clean, but its throwing it off a little with the leather trench. I Understand with the contrast but I think it would look different if it was a standing photograph. I’m gonna have to get my white slim fit on deck though, super clean.
Your that dude Scott! Bringing inspiration since September 2005
The boots are throwing me off a little with the leather jacket. I think if it was a standing photograph it would all come together well. Still looks good though, and i’ve got to get my white slim fits on deck.
oh my goodness… this fellow is THE definition of cool, and it has nothing to do with the cigarette. He ROCKS every stitch he is wearing. I am especially enjoying the boots and killer green gloves. I also quite like how you’ve got him perched on that unique aggregate wall/planter… complements his look very well, somehow. Top Notch!
Veery well done, white pants and green gloves, this is an epitome picture of how unconventional great style really is. I’d never think green gloves could look so well on a man..luv everything about this. The way this is going the sart might have to post a photographer in Florence, great shots back to back from there!
but this photo does bring up an issue I’ve had. Don’t you think his leather jacket is being scuffed by sitting on it on a such a rough rocky surface? I know everytime I’m wearing a nice jacket I mind my surroundings- so if I was him I would probably just enjoy my cig standing up!
yea more htan the gloves..the SHOES!! love the whole outfit..well the jacket least because it looks kind of vinyl-y and is a BIT clashing with the shoes. but the beanie, gloves, white pants and shoes make up for it! and no-no on the cigarette…though he looks cool with it..
the scarf…the shoes…the leather jacket…and those gloves all paired with those white pants just look absolutely fabulous. The neutral colors of the pants and the jacket really accent the different colors of the glove and the scarf. love it!
Insouciance. When I see this photo I imagine how he may have stumbled out of bed, instinctively chosen what he wanted to wear and somehow (sheer taste) it all came together. Nothing from this head to toe look was bought as an “outfit” — it is a collaboration of pieces that he loves. That, my friend, cannot be bought. Beautiful.
White trousers are diificult to pull off. It’s a thin line between funky and swim-teacher… But, he has made a great combination with that fabulous brown leather jacket and the scarf and his gloves give the look a bit of an edge … 9+
Whenever I visit this blog I always look eagerly at the clothes forgetting that I’m actually looking at images carefully composed by a photographer. However I just jumped back to this page after browsing some other sites and realised how interesting this photo is as an image or piece of art. I love how the mossy white pebble wall compliments his outfit and how his relaxed pose contrasts to the shuffling people in the background.
the colours are all pieced together perfectly. Wish i could see a shot of him standing up just to see the clothes, but this is a beautiful picture. His pose makes the whole thing look effortless, even though it’s obvious that he chose his outfit with great care.
I know this is way too general a statement, but I really think Asian guys always have the coolest and most unique style. They pull of sooo many things so effortlessly, and I think they are able to inspire both men and women at the same time.
I love this! It’s kind of off-kilter, but it works. I really appreciate his choice of colors–I love green and blue together. The rough texture of the boots and the soft sheen of the leather jacket are such an interesting combination. This blog is definitely at its best when showcasing unique individual style, not just safe choices or cookie cutter trends.
the green gloves, the brown shoes, the white pants, the blue scarf, the mocha jacket, the black hat, the cigarette,his facial expression, the pose … even the gravel – that confuses the eye of the observer and make the guy look kind of suspended in the air, kind of still trying to walk down the wall while the rest of his body is still sitting… this picture is a piece of art!
The thing I love the most about this photo is his carelessness. Would you sit on mossy green pebbles if you were wearing white trousers? (Would you sit in the garden at all?) Would you sit on a rough surface in your shiny leather coat? Would you combine these colours?
The wall he is sitting on is quite high. It was not designed as a seat, and he would have had to jump to get up there. I bet nobody else is sitting on that wall on this cold winter’s day.
This man seems to be artistic, athletic and introspective. He has a natural confidence in his style and he’s not ‘precious’ about it.
I would like to meet him. I think I would like him a lot.
What an amazing look! And an amazing photo! He looks great and in a way that a normal guy could pull off.
Where can you buy gloves like that? Europe, I suppose. It’s like sox. Go to your average American department store and you see black, blue, brown, tan, and white. Go to the Bon Marche in Paris, and they have every color of the rainbow (and so I spent more on sox there in one day than I’ve probably spent in my entire life in America).
i’m in awe. rare are the people who can actually wear that amount of colors so well studied and perfectly combined. i am particularly admiring the shoes and the gloves. again, love the colour combination!! Not to mention, white pants during winter look odd, difinitely not in this case!
Ooooh! Forget the threads, HE is incroyable and delicious! Have to say, though, the silk scarf that ties in ever so slightly with the gloves – that’s a great touch. I wonder if the buckle on the shoe was meant to echo the one on the jacket. Bit much then, but still – WOW.
I have a question for the Top Sartorialists out there. As a twentysomething man living in the UK, in Manchester, I find it hard to find this sort of good style – and jackets, shirts, textures and colours, good suits, cardigans, polos for layering together. Could anyone help me – where do you shop in the UK for Sartorialist style? Without going to Topman or River Island or going too expensive. Thank you. TP.
