    Love the neckerchief and the combination of jeans and jacket…yet he is so cute he can do so, but I’m not really into his boots…

    Yikes. I’m not a fan of the ‘neckerchief’. Anyone who watched Marty Stewart perform would understand my distate. However, I do love a man in a scarf. Contradictory, no?

    never a fan of neckerchief/ascot unless it’s used to contrast an already over-masculine guise. in this case the fraught kicks and watch already serve as great accessories, making the neckerchief too callow for the overall look.

    i do appreciate the nerve of the white socks.

    I think this one is a a bit of a miss. The chambray does not follow with the formality of the blazer and pants. The shoes don’t go with anything. A darker brown boot would work much better. Also, swapping in the business like blazer for a tweed or herringbone would vastly improve the look. That said, the actual fit of the outfit is quite good.

    Just to elaborate on my comment, each of the pieces is great, just there is a lack of cohesion in the ensemble.

    I think the neckerchief really elevates the look here and makes the casual/dressy combination work much better. It suits his coloring too. The coat or jacket at his feet is another well-chosen element in color and texture and, along with the scarf, helps tie in the boots. It doesn’t bother me here that more shirt cuff isn’t showing- I think it’s too relaxed a look to fuss over that and yes, in this context the light socks are a good choice, too. Looks good.

    The shoes are desert boots by Clark, I bet. Andy Spade wears nothing but those. They look good even when they get dirty like that.

    I’m with thestyleadvisor 10.33am on this one. I’m not into the mismatched jacket and pants, they don’ mismatch enough and the neckerchief merely leaves me wondering if he has a sore throat ??

    He looks great! I love the desert boots, especially in that sandy-grey colour. A bit of dirt is only an improvement in my opp, and they work so well with the neckerchief. The only thing I dislike is the haircut – it looks a bit like it shrunk in the wash.

    The neckerchief actually makes the entire outfit. It softens the look of the denim shirt and highlights his facial features. Grand!

    Saw this guy here before, who is he?????

    Love his style (incl. the Moleskine notebook).

    The desert boots aren’t Clarks, what are they?

    As said before, the boots are Clarks. His denim shirt could be from Adam Kimmel. He did some last summer. I’m mostly interested in his pants. What’s happening with their hem? Could it be CdG? Reminds me of some I used to have. I also love the idea that he is wearing white tennis socks. Eventhough I’m not convinced that his look will work when he is not sitting on a chair like that.

    I’m also interested in who this guy is, maybe I’ve seen pictures on him from GQ/ ???

    Please can anyone tell me?!

    Effortless and classic. I want to get those shoes for my husband…And a denim shirt paired with the charcoal jacket & navy pants–now this makes me rethink my dislike of denim shirts.
    Handsome indeed!

    i agree too with thestyleadvisor. he’s a charming chap though so the look kinda grows on you. his nonchalance does it, i guess. wish the neckerchief had a bit more color.

    The man is Bruce Pask with NYT. He’s definitely a Fantastic Man…wth the step-haircut, chambray shirt and dessert boots/chukka’s which I doubt are Clark’s considering everybody from Opening Ceremony to Pierre Hardy are making their own version.

    Is it just me or could you quite easily replace the wooden bench he is sitting on with porcelain? He certainly does look comfortable.

    The neckerchief is interesting and I don’t hate it, but I”m not sure how much I like it. The triangle of bare chest beneath it seems incongruous. It’s not worn as an ascot with the chest covered, but an ascot would clearly be too patrician for his overall look. Nor is it knotted with long ends, which would be too Freddie from Scooby-Doo. A triangular bandana would be too faux cowboy or labrador retriever. So, he’s done it as a Beau Brummell neckerchief, inside the shirt rather than out. Would it have been as effective as a pocket square? Hmmmm. . .

    I was at this show, and spotted the neckerchief from halfway across the room. It’s great. And i think his eyes only make it more striking…or vice versa.

    i think the boots are actually john varvatos:

    the clarks have a light sole and these have black, like the pic. pretty close in style, but the clarks are much more inexpensive. great look!
