My father wore a khaki colored rain coat similar to the one sported by the gentleman in the white pants. He looked a little more like Bill C. in I Spy though…all the same dad's choice of shoe was always a brown brogue. He wore them everywhere. Dashing in the shades too. Heady times and reminiscent of 60's cool, Take Five, Secret Agent Man and The Saint. Back in other days what looks like a cell would have been microfilm soon to be handed off to the spy in blue…
i know they're not wearing the same outfit, but they mirror each other. it makes me think of the 80's movie 'big business' – but, then again, i never need an excuse to relate something to bette midler.
now i'm going to go read 'the double' by dostoyevsky.
(even my word verifciation is 'duali'. how fitting.)
All very european-gorgeous until you get to the white skinny jeans. Ouch! To me they look like women's leggings! Skinny jeans on men may require a rock star get-up. Here, paired with a look of luxury classics, they just look like an off-note. To me anyway.
Like the fit on both of these dudes. See some say the pants might be a bit tight or "skinny", but I disagree. Esp the white pair. Not too tight around the boots. Love the white/brown boot look. Nice to see the comments made by the lovlies on here how much they appreciate when a man makes an effort. Thank you !
It is always very interested how people who know each other, or with the same social background may end up mirroring each other: they are not exactly alike but the themes, choices, silhouettes are v similar.
I like their choices too! Conservative yet modern – neo-conservative?
I love the composition of the photo, the men a little to one side, the slabs of concrete and wood behind to complement the colors. I also appreciate the care with which they dressed, the big scarf (still going strong) and the brown boots with everything.
This may sound a little strange but I think what finishes these guys' look off are the beautifully polished shoes, maybe it's just because I live in Australia where polishing shoes sometimes seems like a lost art!
