    I love all the colors. Inspirational. If I could only convince the Hip-hop community that those shoes are indeed fly, I’d be on it.

    hee hee! I think this is the “oversize knit sweater” kid in 20 years! I like it– long coat, short pants, vomitorium of colors… it works! Nice background, as well!

    A totally original and charming cacaphony of colors, textures, patterns, shapes and a bright pink belt. Long live eccentricity and the surreal street music it makes.

    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.

    That is a fun look. It works because it is clear he is not trying to match the bright colors. It is going to take me a long time to get use to ankle length pants though.

    Despite the gender propaganda, pink triumphs again as a great color for men. I’m glad he punctuated the look with ultra-shiny footwear.

    The pink sweater is misplaced. It detracts from the look rather than enhances.

    It also looks like he is not wearing socks.

  27. Dan in Richmond

    March 27, 2009 at 1:21 pm

    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.

    the mixing of red with pink is genius, in a black and brown way. just wish the shoes were un-shined to keep your focus up top.

    The palette of pink (sweater), red (scarf) and orange (belt) really suggest YSL such a dynamic mixing of colour. The blue patent (Lanvin?) shoes are killer – i love 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!

    perfect mix of flamboyance and somberness, as expemlified by the contrast between the glossy shoe and pristine, almost flat fabric quality of his jacket and pants.

    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.

    Best to you.

    there’s somenting seriously wrong with proportions. it makes him look short. and for me it is way overdone. the strange glove, the orange (belt?). sart i love you, but this i don’t like.

    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.

    love the cropped pants. I think the break of the flesh tone gives a well balanced look. Imagine the black pants touching against the blue shoe?? If so, you lose the shoe.
