Wow! It's been a while since I've seen an outfit that has captured me immediately like this one does. The blue-brown coulour scheme is unusual but brilliantly executed. The Italian sence of sprezzatura completes an already perfect outfit. Again: wow. I.A. from http://blogspot.com/style4guys
Hee looks great and all but it's a little on the cartoon character side. It just isn't a very practical summer look.
I mean, if it's hot enough outside to wear those shorts, that DB jacket and the shirt + bowtie just make me sweat thinking about them. this could have worked without the jacket, sleeves neatly rolled or without the bowtie + a linen jacket
I love the colours but honestly I'm really not a fan of shorts. Call me old fashioned but shorts are for little boys. When you grow up you should act and dress like a man. Wear shorts on the weekend or at home, I sure do, but as part of a suit? I don't think it's fashion forward I think it's fashion regressive. Let's grow up here.
there is something funny about the hem of the shorts…they remind me of when my mom would make my long pants into shorts as a kid. The hem would always be a little too narrow. The jacket cuffs need like a 1/4 inch more.
I LERV this outfit though, and he wears it so well. I love the shirt collar. Also, he is one of the few men who can wear short shorts with those hairy legs and make it look good!
I agree with anon at 9:44 in that this is "more of a statement than a wearable outfit." His color choices are great and I quite enjoy the peak lapels/bow tie combination, but I can not get over the length of the shorts stripping much of the masculinity from his look.
it is great that youth corrects all/most things. he can wear a unique jacket and attack with that item while other issues are suspect. shorts are too short, jacket sleeves too short, shirt sleeves too long. but, he still looks "intersting"
i agree with some of the others, the colors are fab, the outfit is top-heavy, the shorts are too tight and short to work with the jacket and on my own here…what happened with the shoes? oxfords, bucks or loafers and please with such an intentional getup have the helmet be as serious or starkly contrast.
Incredible! This is just too astounding! He nailed it! I am practically speechless right now due to this guys amazing ensemble! I love the length of the shorts and the fact he is wearing boat shoes…sock-less! He has the dark blazer to match and then the lighter color blue for the shirt and then the burgundy bow tie! He adds the extra cool twist with his aviators! AMAZING! check out my trendy blog! http://thetrendydwarf.blogspot.com/
Looks really SILLY. If it is warm enough to wear short shorts, then the long sleeved shirt, blazer, and bow tie are completely out of place. All the elements are great separatedly, but together… trying too hard, and it shows.
Tone this down to biege and replace the boatshoes with oxfords and you'd have what a lot of cats were rocking in Harajuku when I was there a month ago. I like this over the top version too, though i don't love the shoes.
It's a dapper summer look, no need to hate on the shorts babies.
Like the guy with the multi-striped outfit earlier this week, it's all great until you get below the waist. Those shorts aren't happening. He really doesn't have the legs for, but even is he did, it's just too precious.
when i first saw this i was like, WOW, it is one of those up in your face outfits. Nonethese, I ADORE the blazer and the bowtie, if the gentleman was selling them (in a different size obviously LOL), i would be reaching for my wallet in no time. I'm not incredibly fond of the shoes, they're look a bit chuncky for my taste, but maybe the rough factor of the shoes goes with the wild hair. Anyways, i feel the whole outfit protrudes so much character that it's useless to mingle over final details :)
He obviously doesn't play by "the rules." Anyone who can wear this and pull it off with such confidence shows true style. I personally can't find much wrong with what he is wearing. I think sometimes we get to caught up in rules or ourselves to truly appreciate life.
A lot of you, particularly the older more conservative crowd (which is like 80% of Sart. commenters)don't seem to get whats going on here. It's supposed to be a play on proportions. The short jacket sleeves are an absolute necessity, as are the shorts. I wasn't feeling the shoes initially, but their weight contrast well with the shorts to once again play on this idea of proportions, which is why his legs look odd (which adds to the outfit).
The hair and glasses look lame though. If he had a cooler haircut it would make him seem like he was more aware of the exaggerated proportions and would make him seem less like a comic book character, unaware of his own absurdity.
Oh, and it wouldn't work without the bowtie wither. It makes it a lot look less serious, which is true to it all, and seems to transplant a bit of the character of the bottom half of the outfit into the top, making it seem less like he has just put on two entirely different outfits.
PS: It's clearly maroon, not brown, not that unusual of a palette.
