I think that from the waist up this is great. The clothes are very classic, sober, but they are given excitement by the scarf, which itself has a lot of blue, so it blends in. But the jeans? I find them really too loud. They are very 2003 dirty denim…
The idea of this casual look, -if you could call it that, is to get some attention. The long wide scarf make him stand out from the crowd as well as it is not too much, but enough to get noticed. Works well if you want people to give you a comment, -be a modern urban masculine man – and maybe explain why youâ€™re wearing it.
His whole outfit looks as if it fits very well. A little shorter on the jeans (to do away with the cuff), and a darker scarf (jewel blue would have been better, I think), and he would be in business. Still a sophisticated look, though.
Very at observation about cell phones and cigarettes above. Both make it look as if the person being photographed is busy doing something else/is in the midst of something, rather than just simply standing there posing. Which is a nice effect.
I’m not a huge fan of this kind of wash on jeans, but he makes them work. I think this is a great example of a bunch of simple pieces pulled together by a slam dunk of an accessory. I wish we had a closeup of the scarf…it looks like such an intricate pattern!
The scarf and the bleached jeans are reflecting the light in the same way. The white/blue/brown in the scarf match the white/blue/hint of brown in the jeans. And then you have the same colors in the background: blue sky/bronw trees/almost white gravel. Then there’s the black as an accent in his coat/shoes and the people in the background. I really like the way the colors in the picture work together.
I like this guy’s layered look, the jeans look good on HIM, because he has the right shape, his shoes are good and simple, and work well. I also like his flamboyant scarf, which does not look at all camp, and his moustache looks fine too. I appreciate his ethnic touches, ie. on his wrist. A well considered ensemble.
the scarf is a ‘batik’ scarf, a heritage pattern for hundreds years. there are many of them in Indonesia. From machine-printed to hand-painted, viscose to silk. Many of Indonesia women wears this scarf. But this guy looks fine, he can pull it off somehow.
