    Wow! That’s a LOT of red! The pants alone are fabulous, but the long-sleeve/short-sleeve black/red combo kind fo puts this over the top for me. Hat’s pretty cool too, though.

    I agree with grief on a lot of red. However the look is great except for the footwear. Maybe he was he just stepping out for the morning papers? I guess the hat to be Borselino.

    its very “clockwork orange” retro, graphic red and black, and the fedora (?) in place of the bowler. why tho, the brown beach slide, and, well is he giving you the finger??? that would be punk alright!

    love the pants.
    love the hat.
    love the sandals, but they belong with one of his other outfits.
    not so in love with the short sleeve over the long sleeve tee.

    the red/black, long sleeve/short sleeve combo and plaid pants makes him look he’s a fashion schizophrenicz: mall rat on top/cool new yorker on the bottom. in additon, the red and black combination is to jarring, somewhat like a checker board.

    a simple black or black and white shirt with a pattern would be perfect with the plaid pants.

    It is utter over the top, but it’s fantastic to see a man with the desire to go over the top and the attitude to carry it off.

    The pants are great. The same the hat. The look is fine, maybe just a litte to much red.

    But: More of those men :-)

    it’s a bit absurd and surreal, which is what i like about this look. but there’s another funny contrast (not just between formal head wear and his bathing slippers): namely between his apparently shying away his gaze, and his almost, not really or what…flipping the bird… he’s not sure whether he want exposure – he acts as if he doesn’t, yet his entire outfit alarms us to his existence.

    When I first saw this photo, A Clockwork Orange immediately came to mind. Don’t ask me why.

    People dressed like this is one of things I’m most looking forward to during my July trip to your wonderful city.

    well it helps that he’s a decent good looking guy.. nice shoulder & chest too. the a little patch of facial hair under the lip can do without though.. i don’t understand why guys leave that little patch of hair.. not attractive.

    Pajama pants worn with sandals/flip flops.

    I wouldn’t leave the house dressed like that.

    I think it looks like he’s in pajama pants ‘coz he’s wearing slippers/sandals. Chucks would’ve been better, I think.

    I’m Sorry. I do not mean to be disrespectful to the Sartorialist or the man in this photograph, but this is a bad outfit. Through and through.
