    I love this look! I think it embodies a sophisticated, yet young sense of street style. I wish more people in America took the time to look a little more "put together" especially in Boston.

    It's so classic and simple. Good to see that the classics are still alive!

    Green navy, navy chinos, and brown shoes! LOVE that!

    Especially the chinos, like this ACNE one:

    Something about the hat with the hood of the Barbour is a little awkward, but love everything else.

    While I do like the hat (especially with thr glasses) and like the jacket on their own, do not like them as a combination.

    The reason being is the hood. That hat makes the hood non-functioning. A hood does not add any style if it is made irrelevant by the head gear.

    Lose the hood and dude is rockin it. Lose the hood and add a scarf and the brother is on fire.

    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…

    Think the sunglasses might be great tho!

    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.
