Collar looks good, rolled sleeves are nice, and the material is great. I would like this look more if it had a couple of tweaks: they were trousers with a belt instead of a drawstring; and, better shoes (more pointed and thinner soled) that were not scuffed and in need of a polish. The bag is a nice accessory and is in good proportion and colour.
Nooo, not the jumpsuit! Puh-LEEZ not the jumpsuit, nearly the most impractical garment ever invented! I speak from experience. I owned a jumpsuit once. Only took one trip to the ladies’ room to find out why they should be banished from the face of the planet.
what makes it acceptable is the single fact that the jumpsuit was desgined by miuccia prada. she rocks and she knows oh so well where fashion is leading to. next big thing: her flowers pump will be everywhere in a blink….
That is some serious fashion victim stuff going on there. But if I saw him walking down the street I would say “rock on!” and applaud. Then I would take a picture with my Iphone and show everyone. So I guess I like it!
The shoes stick out and look odd, but on the other hand, if the shoes were the same color as the suit, it would be too much. I’m not sure what he could wear on his feet that would work here. Sneakers maybe… :D
At first I didn’t realize it was a jumpsuit and thought he was wearing shirt and pants in exactly the same color. To me, jumpsuits is a throwback to a (thankfully) very brief period in the 80′s and some mental institutions, although the latter tend to have dull colors and aren’t exactly made of silk… :)
I think he looks fantastic. He’s wearing a contentious item with absolute confidence, and the unpolished shoes dress it down just enough to make him look comfortable and blase about it. Plus, the light in this shot is gorgeous. I’m so glad you posted it.
if he passed my way on the street, I probably wouldnÂ´t remark that it is a one-piece thing. Ok, the color is a little too red, but it has to be a very good material and very good tailored, because it fits him wonderful. What about sweating in silk?
I could go for this if it had something that breaks or soften the line, such as a jacket or maybe a heavy belt. I believe the shoes are non-polished on purpose, otherwise, the entire outfit would be shiny, so the shoes work for me (I never polish some of my shoes such as my Dr Martens). The bag is surprisingly similar to some leather bags that JCrew makes now and again, so keep your eyes open! It does go on sale…
He’s making a very bold statement and managing to look surprisingly elegant and dare I say, rather sexy! Fair play to him. In response to the shoe-dissing going on, I reckon these are a perfect understated compliment to a totally bonkers outfit. Shiny/pointy shoes would’ve tipped the whole thing waaaay over the edge.
After the guys in the heavy suits pictures, I thought how smart this guy was to wear something lightweight, cool, and easy. It’s not an outfit you see everyday, which is why you posted it! I think he looks great and suprisingly natural.
My only problem with the jumpsuit is that I’d love to see a really beautiful belt break the line of all that (beautiful) red. It could be the color of the bag. A couple seasons ago HUGO did a two-eyelet dress shoe in metallic bronze- I’d totally “rock that”, as many of you are so fond of saying, with this! Maybe not in daytime. And what kind of belt does one wear with metallic bronze shoes? Hmm. And again, aside from the bag, no accessories- smart.
oh my gosh, he’s gorgeous. that’s such a perfect color for him, if it was in any other color i would probably hate it, but in a color that’s so complimentary to his skin tone a jumpsuit actually makes sense. that’s definitly not something that could be worked in TX, but if i was in europe and saw this man i would be his devoted fan
no no no belt! How would anyone be able to tell that he’s wearing a jumper? I think it all works really well together – with the unshined shoes toning down the shiny silk and the large bag being noticeable enough for you to think that all he wants you to see is the suit. It all works very well together, really.
this is a beautiful photograph. i love the light and the complement of the tan trousers in the background.as for his outfit, the shirt is amazing, but the pants make it a little pyjama-ish. still looks great!
I have to leave a second comment on this- it looks great. Of course it looks good on this particular man, it doesn’t look silly or contrived- he wears it beautifully and naturally and the overall effect (oh, that could have been a pun was wasn’t intended as one)is one of ease, elegance and style. Actually my favorite post so far this week.(And they aren’t really overalls) Dan
It’s sort of gorgeous/hideous and he looks so happily willing to go down in flames with it. I raise a glass of vermilion froth to you, Mr Jumpsuit, and to you, Sartorialist for presenting him. Clink, clink!
absolutely great and doesn’t matter who is wairing that and how,it’s like a masterpiece in the street,it’a prada,a statement for the summer,and that’s it,no comment on that,totally great and confident,a right anticipation of the pajamas of the next summer,and absolutely the worker’s suite,as bottega docet. love it
I never wear red because I can’t afford it, after years of high street shopping I almost forgot reds like this were still around. I think this photo is absolutely beautiful, the bag goes fantastically with the jumpsuit, and he still looks masculine, i think the structure of the shirt helps. The dark hair and the shadows, ooooo wow
Brilliant colour & this gentleman totally rocks the look.It is something that not EVERYONE will look good in especially if they are alittle on the larger side but this guy carries it well and with confidence. The bag fits the outfit well eventhough it isn’t the same shade.I feel that if its all the same colour…it might be a little too tiring for the eyes so it kind of break the colour lines a little.I must say i will “discount” the shoes .I kind of prefer it with sandals (if its meant to be a little casual) or maybe a caramel coloured loafers or even magenta will be fine. However in general…Thumbs up!
