The play on proportions and muted colours is great. This outfit seems like a very young idea, as in I could easily imagine someone much younger wearing something like this on a daily basis. At the same time, the individual articles of clothing show evidence of mature tastes. So on him it’s a very unexpected look and gives him an air of mystery. Of course his facial expression and poise add to it.
He blends perfectly with the background of the photo, something about this man is timeless, his face has character, it dominates the space in the picture jet he is subtle. Pea Coat is beautiful and hangs so well on his slender body, shoes tell me he is playful, this man has the aura of a street angel.
oh wow! this is the first man’s look for a long time that has really made me sit up and look at it for a lok time, it’s fabulous. i love wide pants on anyone- bring back oxford bags – and this guy hashe hemmed just right and the jacket is to die for with the exaggerated lapel and that curve of the buttons; with the gaulic pulled up collar i don’t believe he needs a scarf and plain converse are the only real shoe plain enough not to overpower the whole beautifully balanced look, right down to his wolfy eyes. great find, sart. happy friday!
He looks good. Love the unisex feel of the whole thing.
I think it would be great if he was wearing a beautiful cologne as well..I know that’s weird to say, but it just struck me as quite necessary for some reason. It seems like using the smell of the cologne as an accessory of sorts would go just wonderfully with the simplistic almost ethereal feel.
Maybe Eau Savage by Dior?
Okay now I’m just in my own little fantasy world..
What a great look?! This gentleman makes me wanna try on a pair of wide-leg pants right NOW! But truthfully, all these Parisians are already translating the Fall-Winter 08 looks into life… He looks effortless, chic and very sophisticated.
Do you mean Le Marais? If not, then my mistake. If so, then I’m not surprised that this man looks so amazing! From what I’ve heard, that particular neighbourhood seems to have a reputation for great culture and stylish people. He looks incredible.
This shot actually makes me a little sick that I don’t live in Paris! The colours in the picture is so well balanced and the bright poster makes it so now. This is also a brilliant example of how the cut of a jacket can enhance the body’s own delicate lines and give the person some stamina and frame. The look reminds me a little of a mix between a Tolstoy-era russian uniform and a 1940′s golfer or tennis player. This is how I prefer “retro” with a modern, personal twist. I am convinced he is an interesting bloke to play so elegantly with his silhuet. ĂĽberchick, well done mr. sartorialist.
I can’t pinpoint why… but I really like this photo! The way he’s parted his hair for some reason really goes with the “young-ish” clothes he’s got on and he looks very cool and must say, has done a great job pulling it off.
the reason so many of the female posters here can “see themselves wearing this” is because theses are women’s clothes! sure,he’s confident and comfortable with himself, but he sure ain’t no david bowie.
