Great! I love seeing someone this young pay such attention to his style now matter how eccentric. Very individualistic, funky enough to have a rebellious edge but careful enough to choose the right pocket square. A pocket square when I was his age?- no way. And THAT is a cool bag. Nice one.
This is a great way for the youth to wear a jacket like this. It’s much more casual than part 1, yet still incredibly stylish. I also love the bag with the wooden handled umbrella in it. It’s a great update on a classic look.
I’m still unsure what I think about the rolled jeans look that is cropping up (pun intended) this fall.
No one’s said anything about the collar pin! I like all the thought that went into this without making it look contrived. And he’s not afraid to store stuff in his jacket pocket (note the ruffled welt pocket flap on his right, probably for extracting the phone) which to me shows he’s comfortable living in and using his clothes. All very effortless, well done!
This one definitely goes in the “classic” column. It’s a look I saw on a bus 25 years ago in Philadelphia, only in that instance the gentleman was wearing vintage brown and white saddle shoes, immaculately polished. It was perfection.
jacket and beaten jeans often looks like an ex-public school boy affectation. denim with holes in lost its rebellious edge when it became available to buy with pre-done holes. now it looks more like a symbol of generic sameness.
I like this one much better than what you entitled “Part 1″ because all of the second guy’s clothes look worn and thus more natural and relaxed. I think the key to looking sharp is wearing stuff like you were born in it.
Boat shoes or penny loafers in the color of the belt would have been the perfect addition instead of the Vans shoes. All in all it is a very prep school inspired look. He definitely reminds me of Holden, the main character from Catcher in the Rye. I really like it and it is nice to see that classy young guys still exist.
I love this postmodern remix, very common but comfortable. A cosmopolitan look for airpots, work, university, after work for a drink or an informal party… A common boy nothing flashy but with a “something” special -maybe the fantastic bag that gives him a modern “touch”(please I want one! -a bag like this, of course-)
To “anonymous” before this post: This bag (I love it!) is from “The Stronghold”…
“The company operates a store on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach, California (1625 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA 90291 (310) 399-7200), that stocks the house label, as well as an edited collection of classic brands. Revered American companies like Filson, Pendleton, Whiteâs Boots, Russell Moccasins, American Optical sunglasses and Stetson hats.”
I believe it’s imposible to buy on line. But if you have a friend in Venice Beach, Califoria… I want another for me.
One Anonymous poster commented âRalph Lauren head to toeâ, and a few others referred to the look as âPolo.â I actually believe this is a salesman that has worked at both the Ralph Lauren mansion on Madison and the store in East Hampton.
