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 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.
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.
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.
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/style.com ???
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.
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. . .
