Very, very vibrant and busy with the patterns, not sure about the sweater color though. My eyes hurt, but then I don’t thik I have ever been so intrigued. Love the choice of backdrop, BTW, Sart. Great choice.
I love the shoes but not with the rest, in fact the rest looks better is you cover the shoes. For individuality he has my vote but he should save those shoes for another outfit and by all means wear some socks with them.
What a painterly splash of color and pattern, framed by the sharp outline of a trim black topcoat. French Impressionism meets the old Flemish masters. And such a great face! I think his smiling eyes hold everything together. Is he single?
just fantastic. “Cacophony of colours” is definitely right! Not only do I love the shoes, but the burst of colours in the shirt area, especially the pink shirt (?), the necktie and the plaid scarf. The hair is the crowning glory!
I’ve looked at this site weekly for a long time… It seems some of the looks are just here for how unusual they can dress (and it wasn’t as much about that before, in my view).
When my daughter was 6 she put together outfits like this all the time. Honestly if I saw him coming down the street I’d cross over, to me he just looks weird.
Now without a doubt I’m a lover of classics however, I do feel even with the classic look that I usually wear I bring it up a notch and add something unexpected or unusual, but a whole outfit like that?
Wow maybe I’ve been involved in fashion my whole life and this sort of look just leaves me cold. Its just silly to me, the individual pieces are fine, together they look wrong. And metallic dress shoes with no socks in the early spring. Not.
Rarely do my comments actually get published since I’m not a over the top Sartorialist fan.
The shoes are amazing – that’s Lanvin for you. Besides from that, I can’t see how this outfit is even remotely stylish. It consist of really great and well-fitting items, but when combined it just looks like he’s trying to hard to obtain some kind of unique style.
The hot pink sweater is effective in distracting one from those awful shoes. Too bad that the layers and fit and of his clothes and the untucked shirt call to mind a street person, an affect enhanced by the shopping bag.
Fantastic style, it’s so confident and unexpected, but yet not to forced. Images like this always keep me intrigued: like what does he do, or what did you say when you stopped him …. anyhow [ heard you'd be coming to Sydney, yeah!!!]
Love the shoes. I've got some shiny gold boots from JUMP in SoHo to match. Im glad to see that the bright colors and shiny materials can work together. Also, loving the tie. Paradoxical subtlety and boldness. Obsessed. Keep a look out for my gold boots!
