if i like or dislike not matter because this man is impervious to judgment. any gentleman daring enough to shoe his hosiery( i love that phrase – men’s hosiery) and rock that coat tells us all that we, ‘ just don’t know.’
I think it’s an interesting silhouette and he’s right, proportionally, to pair the coat with the narrow pants and sleek shoes. Yes, the shoes and socks are great. I also love the touch of pastel shirt showing, a nice reminder that it’s spring!
Every component is on super-drive. The socks, of course, totally rock!
The cut of the pants, the shoes, the white under-garment peaking out at the top… they all strongly support the jacket. Is this a trial balloon for some future jacket silhouette? That’s my take. It looks very futuristic. And will only really work for very, very skinny guys. Like him.
In the perfection of this picture, this guy looks like a human version of a sleek black Porsche.
Finally! A balance of the too-small (the pants) with the too large (the jacket). A nice look, compared to the too-small jackets layered over one another until nothing fits or drapes or looks comfortable. Great look.
The socks and shoes ROCK! I find it whimsical how his posture (neck to hips to feet is “S” shape) is inverse relationship to the “C” shape of his coat. And while I want to say I would be so daring I kind of think the coat makes him look like he is “reverse pregnant”, never a sexy thing. Maybe if he stood up straighter…
Thanks for the fun Sart! What would the dreary rainy days of early Spring be without your lightness?
I believe this chic jeune homme is sporting socks by Paul Smith, seeing as I have a pair identical to his pair. If they are the same, they have a rockin’ red border around the top and the toes. Love this silhouette, as well. C’est completement parisian!
The ensemble is interesting, but I don’t think his body proportions pull it off very well. However, the detail of the patterned socks, and the the white collar peeking out of the coat are nice touches.
I love that with a super skinny pant you can tell that beneath the shell that’s hiding the rest of his body, he is quite thin. Who would’ve though you could look skinner by being engulfed in fabric! Then again, Mary Kate has been doing that for years… regardless, this look is fabulous!
trouser length isn’t just fashionable it also SUITS him… often a forgotten point…. the jacket I love but fear it’s watered down imitations that will ineveitably follow.. this example is pin sharp- focused on the pitch and balance… it can only be achieved this way!
Malik, I agree. Why are so many against the shape of the jacket? It’s so beautiful and you can see the perfection in the construction from here. What are the other options? A black jacket from Topshop? The jacket, I repeat, is just beautiful.
I absolutely Love the coat, It’s amazing to actually see a piece like this on the street, and I don’t see it as a joke, menswear needs to be more progressive! I love Balenciaga, and this gentleman here just made my season.
I like the socks but the jacket has a way of bringing back into my mind what Oscar Wilde once said about fashion! “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months”
not a big fan of turtle thing it looks like hes wearing extra large coat that was not tailored right. there’s nothing “Artsy” about it honestly that looks weird. w.e i still like the pants and the shoes and the lil checks socks. and a cigarrtte ;)
