I really like the mix of the patterns on the top half of his outfit, but not so sure about the bottom half… it kind of looks like he forgot his pants. I like the print on the shorts–that print would look fantastic as a cute summery skirt.
I hope you seriously reconsider seriously reconsidering that outfit. I just don’t know what’s happening with shorts that length and those kinds of shoes without socks. To my eye it looks like he competely ignored what those patterns do to each other
A round of applause offered on the shorts. These were featured in Christopher Bailey’s Summer 2006 Prorsum Burberry collection. They were showcased on the runway with a simply henley on top. I’ve wondered if they could ever be pulled off successfully on the street. And I see that they have. Against the backdrop of a NYC overwhelmed and underwhelmed by horrid cargo shorts, this is a testament to the genius of Mr. Bailey. Yea!
What’s to reconsider, now? This is wrong on so many levels…but it mostly has to do with the short pants and man-leg-hair.
Like “anon 6:49,” this may have worked better sans manteau.
Otherwise, it’s a Freudian cry for attention. Not that that’s bad but you really have to have swagger to make it work. And since there’s no viddie, Sart, we can’t tell if he had enough swagger to carry this costume.
Hey, esp. in summer and esp. with the state of the world…I’m thinking fun is underrated and we need more of it. I’m sick of boring/tasteful. I’m appreciating more and more people who are having fun with their clothes (even if I wouldn’t wear what they’re wearing). I saw a guy the other day wearing an outfit that was a symphony of orange–all elements composed of various orange prints, plus orange sneakers. He cheered me up like nobody’s business.
I think the danger is looking too convoluted. He has a lovely air of carelessness in the ensemble that makes me feel like he didn’t at all overthink it. It gives it all a laid-back “don’t judge too hard” vibe. Of course, he may have planned this for hours…
It is nice to see that that it is still that warm in NY. Where I live, no shorts this summer anymore. I donÂ´t like his outfit at all.Here again shoes,hairy legs and no socks.Luckily the color palette of his clothes is noy so bad,the mixmax of patterns doesnÂ´t pop out so dramatically.
It’s pure JOY. How great to see a fun mix of pattern, cut, and texture. It is unforgivable how stolid and dire men are expected to dress. We have survived world wars, disease, and two terms of G. Bush; for goodness sakes, playful attire is a relief from the ditum of safe dressing. Not only shoul you revisit this look next year, I pray you exploit a little more playful and daring looks that cross your path, S. I’ve seen you on the street in W. Chelsea and the Meat Packing..you look great. Give us all a reason to explore or persona through wardrobe. Lovingly , Jamesy
Got to go against the crowd with this one: L-O-V-E it! Such a refreshing change from boring juvenile cargo shorts and flip flops. And great legs don’t hurt. By the by, MEN are supposed to have hairy legs.
This man has wonderfully shaped legs ..or as my grandma would say..his legs are smashing! I really like the colour palate of his wardrobe, it’s soft and delicate and it holds the ensemble together. I agree with a lot of the other posters, his style is quirky and playful and it looks like this man enjoys getting dressed in the morning. I love it!
Its working on every level. He is just wearing shorts. Outerwear. Whatever it reminds sensitive people about boxer shorts. It would never have occurred to me to even think that. Some people are just easily bothered, I guess. His legs are great, and nicely manly. He isn’t even all that hairy. NONONO!!!! @ the fade idea. Real men do not shave their legs!!!!!! Thats disgusting. He looks adorable, well put together, and I don’t even see what is so “risk taking” going on here. All I see is a hot, comfortably, and attractively dressed guy.
