On The Street…..Outside Bergdorf, NYC

I love those exaggerated slant of the pockets on the jacket and look at him showing that cuff!

    Oh yeah, this is what I pretend to see in the mirror when I’m going out. Great jacket, great fit, nice belt. I would’ve opted for a plain-coloured shirt instead of the check, but heck, it still looks great. Nice one.

    The jacket makes me giddy with pleasure; it does absolutely everything it should. The genius of the deeply slanted pockets: they carry the line and emphasize the fitted shape.

    And I now officially proclaim, to those who feel that men’s tailored clothing can’t be sexy, look here and forever hold your tongues!

    Any guesses? I’d guess Duncan Quinn or Ralph Lauren Black Label, as they’ve both done hacking jackets with slant pockets.

    wow, sexy indeed! his broad shoulders and tight waist are very attractive and well-emphasized by the excellent jacket.

    but apart from the stand-out subject i also admire the stand-out photographer: i particularly love the background in this photo, with the light of the wintry sun, some suggestion of foliage and a very manhattan street scene… a pleasure as always to the eye!

    Very nicely done …with the ticket pocket tweed jacket and denim combination.
    Question: I have tried a few jacket with the ticket pocket and feel that it me Personally look “older” (lack of a better)….any cluse is what that is all about or what one can do to overcome it.

    The shirt is brilliant. The color and pattern are a great contrast. A plain shirt would just make the look standard issue, even with the pockets.

    Helps loads that the shirt matches his eyeballs and the jacket his hair. He’s being “safer” then you think. Standard dude outfit on an unstandardly (yes, it’s a new word) good looking dude.

    The jacket fits him beautifully. The slant on the pockets emphasises it as well. PS – his hair looks good too!

    Love the jacket! Love the look! He looks so confident in his style and do elegant. I wish I could get a jacet like this one. You cannot find one like it in Thessaloniki – nay, in the whole of Greece – unless you pay mucho moneda…

    I agree that he looks great. But while I love the color of the jacket and its pockets, the shape looks a little feminine and hourglass-like to me because of the shoulder pads and small waist. Maybe it’s just a trick of the light though.

    This guy looks really nice. I love the shirt. This picture inspired me to not wear a plain shirt today.

    I REALLY like the way the jacket fits. May I suggest that he change the shirt to a lilac check … blue is a little too ‘safe’ a choice for this.

    As for what “just an obeservation” said about the ticket pocket, I alwasy thought of that pocket as typically ‘english’ rather than ‘old’ … maybe the two connotations collide on our side of the Atlantic because typically older chaps (of a certain age?) would be able to afford a better suit from England or Europe, while younger fellas would be left with low-end domestic stuff until their wallets and sartorial know-how grew up. I suspect, though, that the ticket pocket is not an “old man” thing in England … perhaps our Brittish fellow-bloggers will enlighten us, but otherwise feel free to wear that youthful ticket pocket with pride (like me).

    I think it’s Ralph Lauren. I have a women’s Lauren hacking jacket with those exact same pockets.

    That much waist suppression makes me think it is bespoke.

    fantastic! the combination here (yes to checks, yes, yes, yes) and the fit of every single thing he’s got on is perfection. plus the hair and the, um, physique. bergdorf’s should pay this guy to stand around outside.

    Very British bespoke. Looks good. I highly doubt that it’s RTW.

    Just took a second look. RLPL is a good guess given the lapel “tag.”

    Excellent look. That jacket is a prime example of how a jacket should fit for that body shape.

    I agree with deadstenographer. The checked shirt is a perfect contrast with the tweed jacket. And the belt buckle brings it all together.

    And the fit of the jacket is just as it should be.

    Damn, I’ve been looking for that blue checkered style shirt for months!!! Turnbell and Asser has em, and so does Paul Smith, but I don’t want to spend 250 bucks on a shirt..

    I’m waiting for Van Husen to make one, or Stafford. ;-(

    I like the look with the jeans. I wonder what style of shoes he is wearing?

    This guy looks gooooood, and he knows it! Good for him! I love those pockets – extremely unusual.

    Good on you for spotting them, Sart.

    does that jacket fit him beautifully? looks to me like his shoulder pads are jutting out over his shoulder … look at the hollow beneath that cliff above his bicep.

    or am i seeing things?

    it’s still a good look, but to my eye the jacket is overdoing the “i got broad shoulders” thing, esp. with the snug waist.

    does anybody else think the button stance is a bit too low? otherwise, a great look to my eye.

    Try Tommy Hilfiger (I think it’s the American Classic line or something like that) Mr. Useless. They make a great dress shirt that you can dress down or up.

    Isn’t this the same guy you shot outside of Ralph Lauren offices last spring with cuffed jeans and cuffed jacket sleeves? He has a great combination of casual and tailored. Very nice!

    Looks effortless, unlike some others you’ve shot. It doesn’t look like he’s trying hard. Everything just fitted and fell nicely.

    The jacket’s construction is just simply brilliant! The wasp-ish wiast! Who wouldn’t love it when it makes you look thinner?


    November 21, 2006 at 2:30 pm

    Utmost elegant.. and what´s underneath the clothes is even more great.

    A big part of the appeal there is the confidence and pleasure that he projects. He feels good about what he’s wearing (as he should), and it shows.

    I love this guy’s fresh take on everything. The hair mixed with the shirt mixed with the blazer. He just looks like fun. It’s like he’s stiffness breaking out into a song. Like anonymous said, almost like he’s trumped irony with pleasure.
