    There is something about the wrap not being overlapped that bothers me. I feel that it loses its effect when its open, exposing the chest like that. i do enjoy the color though. There is definitely something soothing about that blue.

    That scarf is just so ‘bien parida’ which basically means it’s beautiful, wonderful and gorgeous. The way it’s combined with jeans, greyish t-shirt and blue velvet looks very pretty and sexy to my eyes although if I think of it rationally, I find the whole kind of too well studied, too perfect.

    the shot is so gorgeous…color, composition, all of it. and on him, the scarf looks just right. I love seeing accessories that people obviously buy to actually wear, without trying for a studied perfection that too often gets in the way of inspired spontaneity. perfect!

    This looks like the zadir of the big scarf trend. It’s gotta be downhill from here.

    I have a pashmina that colour. I wish I thought mine looked as good on me as his does on him.

    the deep glowing velvet and the soft blue look absolutely gorgeous together. this would look great for a velvet sofa and throw.

    The fact that this scarf is tied in such a loose fashion is an interesting contrast with the neatness of his hairstyle and the elegance of the velvet jacket. The jeans add a casual tone to this eclectic, old money, look. This is a wonderful alternative to the preppy and tweedy ensembles we have seen. It is continental, I would say.

    Enormous blue scarf with blue velvet jacket and jeans. Almost crazy, but comes out looking very hip. I wonder what shoes he is wearing.

    It is a pretty shade. I was trying to figure out why I wasn’t responding to this look and it hit me– I live near Duke University, it’s basketball tournament time, and **everybody** is wearing this color here, so it’s like color fatigue. I do like the twist at the neck, and the blue blazer underneath.

    Somewhere, Gainsborough is smiling! Though I love the blues, I’m not sure about the scarf and the velvet(een?) jacket together–it just feels a bit like the textural frosting is overpowering the cake. On the other hand, I suspect a lot of people can’t resist petting him, which could be quite an enjoyable result.

    i love the colour, particularly the jacket. And his hair is awesome.
    But I really don’t like the way the scarf is wrapped at all. It looks messy and comical.

    what might the scarf be made out of? is pashmina the definite consensus? because i like the way it seems to be textured..

    no he does not look chic, he looks like he is trying too hard..its not a good look in my opinion

    It’s gutsy of him to even think about wearing pashimina. Looks good… Over and over again I realize on this blog that it’s confidence and strong sense of self that make your look!

    Something borrowed, something blue.

    I’m in love with the jacket, it’s just brilliant. The pashimina is a nice color, but seems soley for warmth and comfort, as the ensamble does not require it. But it’s a nice touch.

    this is so cool! I just like how the blues are not repetitive (i mean the jacket the scarf, the jeans). they all stand for their own while still doing a coherent look. I want to add also that this is what I like about this blog: the guy with his scarf spread like that is evidently in an everyday life situation but the photo and the style are so well done that you can help but be amazed. Real life is beautiful and so different from made-up situations like fashion shows. Sart, you have my oscar award because you encourage me to look my best everyday especially when there are days i find it complicated to achieve.

    More gentlemen should dare wearing huge “pashminas” – thinking of it: there might be a lot of nice items in our wifes wardrobes

    I personally wear ladies hankies as pocket squares ;)

    The velvet jacket is very nice too! Note the cuff with one button undone – this is the kind of look where this isabsolutely appropriate !!!

    will some please tell why wearing pashmina is NOT for men?

    and, yes – what kind of shoes does he have on?

    I’ve seen some other men wearing pashminas on this blog, and in a previous post I asked if it was appropriate.

    This man has convinced me that it is, much to the chagrin of my wife and her collection of pashminas I have gotten her!

    I see nothing wrong with pashminas for men! When worn right, they look amazing. But the key is if you’re able to wear it right…
    The shades of blue here…well, there’s no other word to describe them but absolutely sumptous. That jacket…wow!

    The first thing that I saw was the scarf. But the second glance and I know there is sth more than the scarf. This velvet jacket is as important as the scarf. Fantastic.

    Love the various blue colors – the scarf size though is a tad too big. A smaller one would make this a perfect look, while now it just screams for attention.

    The way the colors play and especially the combination textures (pashmina + velvet) is just exquisite.
    I would not only forgive the jeans but would have to stop myself from getting caught giving this cutey a double take.

    In the mountains of Afghanistan and north Pakistan, men routinely wear big shawls wrapped around their upper bodies to keep them warm. They’re not usually made in colors this bright, but the texture seems to be the same

    Ha! I actually own this jacket, or at least one extremely similar(by Ralph Lauren). Been at a loss for what to wear with it.

    This definately gives me some ideas…..although I think the scarf is a bit too flamboyant I love the look.
