Ha, pretty funny. It surprises me that he's wearing a bright yellow/green belt in combination with his classic combination with the blue and beige. But it surprises me in a good way. Yes, this guy is funny.
Not really a fan of this. It's an interesting idea, but the rest of the outfit makes me think it's a bit "too cool for school". Ie. I don't enjoy the chain, length of the shorts and the colour of the belt.
The jacket is awesome – it is a casual and nonchalant way of approaching your outfit. But he seems to have that approach to everything – throwing a bright green belt and a chain in with all the classic pieces. Well done! :) Love your blog! LK
First love that zingy fluro belt cutting across the cool colours, then the shots of warm colours in the background – hot pink, orange, red, yellow. Hey & I like his jacket slung through the belt! Never seen that before.
Clever:) It's nice to see sometimes that people use their clothes for what it's worth. It's not necessarily ruining their style. Overloaded pockets are another example.. Btw, thumbs up for italian men, and their clothing style! :)
Love the shoes and shorts most. –and a great idea with a jacket or blazer you don't want getting overly crushed from the usual tie around the waist. Although I will say that fluoro colour belt is all wrong.
Interesting? – yes. Fashionable? – No. I really do not care for the chain-on-the-wallet look either. But, hey I wore my sweatshirts inside out in the 80's. This (fleece-in-the-belt) look is far better than that silly 80's trend, so anything can catch on.
Really? It reminds me of my grandson's shoe velcro sticking to his behind when he crouched down and when he rose his shoe was stuck to his butt. His sister laughed her head off. Tell you something? I think this looks stupid. Don't like the shoes or chain either. Doesn't leave much…
One of the few sartorial traits in the military is where soldiers choose to place their berets when they're not wearing them. Some put them boringly in a pocket, some wear them British-style folded on their shoulder and some do as this gentleman does, and tuck them into the belt (both the back and right side are popular. Never in the front.)
I dont think the gentleman was trying to create a style but look out for copycats around the world who try to mimic this look. I am kind of sick of seeing copycats. Dont you guys see that ppl these days dressed the same – globally?
Looks like it's from Jil Sander's SS 2005 collection. I have the same colour from that year, but it's slightly wider, so I'm not sure. I also have one in neon pink from that Jil collection that's that exact size. Maybe there are several versions. Who knows?
My guess is that this isn't a true belt, rather a nylon webbing tie-down strap of sorts. This would be quite innovative. If this is the case, the guy may have purchased several for less than $10 in total.
I have taken to tucking my hat in a pocket or in the small of my back to get it out of the way +(mind you, I mean driver's hats or 8/4 hats, or even a crushable fedora). This picture illustrates a very effective way to keep track of your outergarment and still have it out of the way –and out of the dirt. Very smart way to go.
Sorry Scott. Can't get into this. The awful shorts length (I know they're not Dickies, but they remInd me of them), the wallet chain(Chrome Hearts?) and the rest of the ensemble, seems like 'Tommy Lee attempts la bella figura'. Was he Italian? When I was in Florence last summer, I saw beautifully dressed Italian men that would sooner die than take their jackets off. And the guys that did, still did it with real sprezzatura. The jacket in belt isn't insouciant, it's just sloppy no matter how ingeniously or nicely he folds and tucks it.
After seeing the Prada womenswear show back in fall 06, I've always wanted to try the coat/jacket/blazer belted on the waist…nice to see someone execute it off runway, just worry about the wrinkles though…
Well, the jacket looks dumb hung from his belt like that. It’s a fashion faux pas right there. Don’t know how can so many people like it. But what I loveis his belt color and his pants and the added chain.
