This is the first time I’ve seen this look of wearing two blazers together on the street. He does a great job of it. Looks like he spent 5 minutes getting dressed this morning but came out looking fabulous!
Is it too much to expect The Sartorialist to refrain from posting photographs of people wearing dungarees (and particularly dungarees with factory-installed holes in them) worn by anyone except a person in the process of cleaning out a stable? I cannot think of a more vulgar garment than torn dungarees, nor can I understand why a person wearing them should be included here; it’s a serious lapse of good judgment.
This is one of the first times I’ve seen an outfit that just looks like he is trying too hard. I think the layering is not all it could be and the color mix is doesn’t fit. That being said the blazer shirt combo is great.
This is beyond ingenious! Never would have ever thought of wearing a blazer over a cardigan like this…I guess its just not my personality, but it works here. The bright, plaid shirt accentuates the different tones of the blazer and cardigan. It looks like theres some light hues of blue and green in the shirt. Nice shot again…the activity of backdrop complements the somewhat tousled look he has going here.
I don’t mind the higher pant leg but I’m not a huge fan of 2 blazers or a short boxy suit with a long sweater. I’m more traditional I guess in my fashion likes and dislikes but take off either the sweater or suit and I’d like it fine.
This man is really attractive and I like the photo too. His outfit is very interesting: I like the idea of cardigan + jacket and short jeans, but the realization does’t really work for me… I think it is because the cardigan is too long, it seems to work like an apron here.
Bricology, do you really think torn dungarees are “vulgar”? If you are not joking here, you must shudder every time you walk past places where young people congregate.
This fellow has a charming, youthful look with inspiration from a big swath of the 20th century. A little ’90s grunge, a little ’50s greaser, a little ’80s new wave–and probably a few things I can’t identify. Such a great style for a day of moving about the city!
We live in a world where wrinkles and age are not tolerated on a face but are cultivated in clothing.
Nothing criminal about torn jeans, though I am in favor of “earned” distressing, over the the manufactured brand. (See Coach VP of mens design in the April GQ: “It’s great when clothes age … but it’s also how you age them.”)
This good looking guy’s jeans look truly well-worn, though the rips look achieved with a blade or scissors. But who knows? The aesthetic we see today is that odd juxtapositions and tattered clothing are chic if combined with a Rolex and a job that allows unlimited espressos or nightclubbing … and good looks, a stylish haircut, etc.
But this actually harkens to another type of tattered sartorial take: the old-line, “patrician” style – quality J. Press or Brooks Brothers clothing worn until it’s consigned to the weekend, then worn until the tops of collars are in threads and all the elbows have been patched. It’s a sort of “country-gentleman-chic” that’s been around for generations: to have “new” weekend clothes speaks of new money!
