I am sure the pompons on the mittens serve a purpose, right? I would have let either the mittens or the sneakers make a color statement, but maybe not both at the same time. I like the outfit overall! Jorge from W Palm Beach
I think it has to do with his eyes which is simultaneously innocent and sad the way a boy would be sad. Those eyes reflect the awkwardly matched purple shoes, red mittens, and the unexpected zipper on his coat. Without those eyes this outfit would not work.
what a lovely boy. Those mittens are amazing. He looks like a character out of an early 20th century children’s story. I don’t know about the shoes though. I love the purple, but not so much the style.
Isn't anybody bothered by the bulky items in his front pockets? I don't mind guys wearing skinny jeans but please put your cell phone, wallet, keys, &c. in some other pockets besides the front ones. It totally messes with the clean lines of this outfit (and it wears holes in the front pockets). I like the look overallâ€”great colors, great pieces, nicely mixed but am totally distracted by the front pockets.
It’s actually not considered that odd for men to wear mittens in the northern countries. I live in Finland and often both men and women wear mittens. And the pompoms on them are just a cute detail don’t you think? I love this look, it’s so kind of rough, very Swedish…
Gee, he looks awesome! Those shoes and those mittens are rather fantastic. I love wearing winter hats like he is too, pushed back and bangs in the front. And his scarf! Brilliant. Love the whole ensemble, and the zipper on his coat is a great finishing touch. He definitely looks like a cool cat, I'd love to meet him.
