I've got a strong suspicion that this is a friend of mine from London! Would make sense, he spends a lot of time in paris and nyc as he is in the art world. Can you confirm scott? I may need to call and ask him, looks exactly like him…
Thank you so much for all your coverage on men's fashion. I really appreciate all that you've done so far with Sartorialist to keep us abreast of what works with men's street fashion. I just wish I knew where to find it all!
Nice Barbour (yay for the UK!) and I'm right with the tan shoes… but the high trouser hem/cuff blows it for me – on some it looks stylish cool, on others, like the wearer just ignored the fit. This says the latter to me… maybe its the socks, but I don't think so :-) If great style is great fit, this ain't doing it for me…
F++kin great style man ! Love the way he walks and his attitude ! You can really see there's somethin' good goin on. Is he trynna sell his clothes to the old men with black jacket ? Genius ! alĂ˛alĂ˛h!
I love the socks and the shoes but the pants are cut far too high. I always find brown or tan shoes to be much more fashionable, but Im not understanding this trend toward 'high-water' pants cut, as I wore when I was about 17 or 18. …well what comes around goes around I guess! :-) Jack
Unless there's going to be a great flood, the short pant length is so over. If you have a pair of awesome ankle boots with embellishments, then go ahead and hike up the pant length. Otherwise wearing the correct inseam length is still the best sartorial rule to follow, especially with that style of shoe. Now and forever to infinity, pants that are pegged or flood length are never stylish, was never stylish and will never be stylish. Remember, long lengthy legs–on both men and women–always look great! If this gentleman had on a pair of funky socks, then his short floods would've worked. On a positive note, the color of his pants is vivid and beautiful. His oiled cloth jacket is great along with his fedora and Ray Bans (?)!
The much loved Barbour bedale waxed oilskin is the core of any gentlemen's wardrobe. The detachable hood with a hint of tartan crosses this country icon onto the streets subtly. The colour combination of the tortoise shell wayfarers, hat and beard is fierce. The ribbed socks pull off the cropped trousers. Many sub-genres meet, fifties americana x british country side x japanese urban wear via Wataynabe. This man needs a hound.
I so don't get the shrunken pant look. Totally styleless, looks like a schoolboy who's outgrown his trousers – or like many Madrilenos, mainly accountants! In my country, pants have to hit around half an inch above the ground, whether male or female, and I have my pants specifically hemmed to wear with different heel heights. forget about the hood/hat thing which is ridiculous.
This is how you do it! I believe the sunglasses must be moscot and the look is perfect! Bought the same shoes today in suede, this guy inspired me. The barbour is not my thing but a upland woolen mills can do the same for me. But this guy knows what he is doing for sure.
Are some commenters here having a laugh?? Shame! Lauding short hem pants exposes advocates as either masters of sarcasm or appallingly deficient in style. If latter, claim the former, so you won't look foolish. Integrity be damned. DA
