    Great looks on both! I personally can’t do short pants but admire them on these guys. Black shoes, socks, or boots definitely help the look.

    i really love these guys’ outfits! it’s nice to see older men who are experimenting more with the proportion of their trousers.

    also love the fingerless gloves and that man’s impeccable peacoat!

    i can’t believe how critical some of the comments on here are! fashion is about self-expression and having fun.. adopting the trends of the season in a personal way that works for you. so stop being so overly critical people!! enjoy the beauty of scott’s amazing photographs and his personal perspective of the fashion world.

    sart when are you going to tokyo to show these people stuff that’s really OUT THERE?? i’m sure the comments would be quite entertaining to say the least!

    the guy on the right is david bradshaw, arena homme plus’ fashion director…
    i can see he’s still loyal to thom browne, but luckily he doesnt have to pay 4 grand for an off the peg shrunken suit….
    by the way, i don’t get the thom browner look..if you hadn’t guessed

    OK, gotta say I’m not relating too well to all the ankles showing this season. The guy on the right is pushing my envelope way too much. But maybe that’s the point. He wants attention. But at such a price!

    what an incredible face. he could have on anything and who would know for looking at his face. (the shorter gentleman of course)I’m certain his spouse agrees.

    I’m sorry, but I just don’t like the short pants. They look very polished and put together from mid-calf up though…

    I wish I could better see the color of the man’s coat on the left. I see its green but I wished they were standing in the sun. Guys in my neighborhood have been wearing their pants that way for a few years but they usually (crookedly)cut the bottoms off with scissors and leave them unfinished. They are the devoted bike riders in the Echo Park area of LA. Its cool to see this look hemmed and in nicer fabric, and also on someone who isnt a kid.

    Yes those green gloves does look like those Burberry Prorsum F/W 2008 fingerless gloves :) !

    Oh, the facial expressions! Without them, the outfits would simply be a bundle of clothes; with them… perfection.

    i’m infatuated by the shade of green the left fellow has. gorgeous!

    I like the Thom Brown look. There’s something really charming about it, and I think of this amusing poster at the Imperial War Museum in London. It’s about buying children’s clothes bigger to account for growth (c. WWII) and there’s a cute drawing of a boy in too-small clothes.
    The guy on the right is cheeky and irreverent, especially with that face. Personally the popped collar is the low point to me. I see it too much. The guy on the left is really damn good looking, and could probably wear anything. I do like the green. I want my boyfriend in that coat and gloves.

    We definitely need more deep green in menswear.

    I love the short pant. These fellows totally embody the masculine edge of left bank Paris, with cigarettes and reading materials clutched in fingerless gloves.

    The guy on the right is so deceptive! Is that you, Daniel Craig?!

    These two men look so dapper! I love both of their coats! :)

    I love the play between darks and lights here. I love their hair and E.E. bone structure. The man on the left, with most of his outfit blending into dark, almost solely a silhouette, and the older man on the right with his frame more subtly getting darker toward his feet, giving him a wonderful weight and placement. I love the contrasting top heavyness of the man on the left and his posture.

    The man on the left has a spectacular pose, so regal and powerful. Really good shot.

    if it’s true that men are the new women, then give me more of this kind! so gorgeous!

    If this was shot in black & white, it could be a French movie poster from the 50s…

    "Two generations lost in a world of debauchery and self realisation…" whilst looking extremely debonair

    I’m not convinced that the coat on the left is really green. I think it might just be the gloves playing tricks on my eyes. I’m more accepting of shorter pant legs than I used to be, but this may be pushing it. Everything else looks spot on. I really like fingerless gloves. P.S. My word verification was “hater”.

    the fingerless gloves are genius, and their expressions are amazing. This photo tells such a wonderful story.

    Two gorgeous men wearing little pants. I don’t care, they look hot!

    They remind me of characters from the Japanese cartoon, Lupin. They all wear characteristically high pants paired with boots. Very classy. I’ve been waiting for this style to become a reality for some time now.
