I don’t think he copied this look from anyone else, even though plaids and cuffed jeans seem to be popular now. I won’t be copying it, either, but I like the sense that it could only have grown out of an individuals own sensibility and personal sense of style. The two plaids are one thing, but the checked shirt and bow tie are a surprize and a sign that something else is going on here, likewise the lavender socks. There are some interesting things going on in terms of scale and proportion- the shoes/socks/cuffs, the gloves and jacket, the tie. The quirky elements make it and it looks right for him.
Crrazy–and why not? Pants, socks and shoes are ideal. The glasses suit the face, not so sure about the hair. The tie and lumberjack shirt? Crrazy, but I know I’ll look at this image again. Where is this location?
One of my favorite shots ever. Not many can pull of this eclectic of a look and get away with it. His attitude allows him to own the look, and he clearly has an eye for great pieces and how to put it together. I love the juxtaposition of the hobo gloves and the bow tie. This guy has a masterful style vocabulary.
Wow, definitely not a follower! Three types of plaid on top (with different scales and that’s why they go well). The cuffed pants so we can see a bit of the marled pink socks on top of shoes that can be either very butch (as in this case) or very dressy (with a suit). I like that the look is very attainable, and that attention has obviously been paid to how things fit so that it doesnt look sloppy. Jorge from W Palm Beach
ah! i love this man! this is the same dude you got (maybe last year-ish?) in warmer weather, wearing some seersucker shorts and a T-shirt or something. he had some amazing bracelet(s) happening and his hair– as it is here– was nothing short of magnificent.
I used to work in the logging industry in northern British Columbia (really!) and I used to see a lot of guys that looked pretty much like this – without the bowtie and the pink socks, of course. Add hobnailed boots and a chainsaw and he’s got it nailed.
i love that someone wondered what the female version of this would be. i love this and would absolutely wear it, in my size of course… wonder how it would look on a 5’4, 105 pound girl?! seriously i find this totally inspirational as a woman. it feels so authentic, and there is nothing i hate more than an outfit that looks like a coustume. fantastic!
I really can’t add anything to all the comments excep that they are spot on.
i really liked this shot. I love wearing those same clothes so much, and i don’t care what others thing but my girlfriend is not a fan so next time I am going to tell her the Sart must think it’s cool. That outta shut her up. She will probably just say “it looks good… on that guy !”
I love it!! I also love how the parking lot behind sort of matches the vibe of his outfit. Ive been thinking about the new facial hair style for men. Moustaches and beards are back, i think it looks quite cool but not so sexy…its sort of weird to think about. Even Brad Pitts new moustache is something that is trendy but he looks better/hotter with the old style of scruff.
Just this week I was getting all nostalgic about Woolrich shirt-jacs, and these days I live in the land of Pendleton, so I’m all about plaids and checks. The bow tie is brilliant and somehow works with all that hair. The mitts are a great touch as well.
All the droopy-drawers teen-agers I have to look at on the train should be forced to study this image carefully.
i love him. isn’t he the pink lacoste, khaki shorts and bohemian sandals guy from the summer that i fell in love with. so glad he’s back and j’adore his winter look. see he’s married….c’est la vie! i’ll worship from afar. he’s got style from his gorgeous locks to his pretty toes.
This is what every lumberjack should wear to transition from day to a dressy evening event! Since you want to blend in with your fellow wood choppers in the forest, the warm plaid layers work. Being in the outdoors, it is always smart to dress in layers and when you arrive at your event, you just shed the coat, and voila…you have a perfectly nice outfit with the tie and shoes! This man has it figured out! Straight from the woods to dinner in downtown Manhattan. Fabulous!
Anonymous’ comment about men in “the logging industry in northern British Columbia” looking “pretty much like this – without the bowtie and the pink socks” but with hobnailed boots and a chainsaw” made me LOL.
My immediate reaction to this look was also very We(s)t Coast (Vancouver BC). The red plaid jacket is ubiquitous here – but it’s not usually worn with his panache. Great to see this look reinterpreted so interestingly.
Probably Japanese selvage, heavier denim (>14oz), slightly tapered and hemmed like they should. Kind of slubby fabric (could be Texas cotton but not necessarily). Samurai? Oni? Or is it Warehouse Dubbleworks 660 (with low/mid rise – the fly seems to contain 4 buttons)? Great portrait anyhow!
i think this is one of my favorite posts. this outfit is one of few that seems like it was conceived completely intrinsically, without fashion influence, and it still works. this guy has true personal style.
I saw this guy downtown once and could not stop staring at (read: worshipping) his unique sense of style. With the beard and slightly messy pulled back hair, he was wearing a “preppy” cable-knit and dockers. On anyone else it would look foolish, but he looked so hip and well planned.
I like everything about this shot, especially his color choices. Oh and the mix or the plaids and the texture of the fingerless gloves, and the shoes with pink socks and cuffed dark jeans. Ok I like everything about this picture.
the bow tie and the sox are fab =) at first from afar when u see his two checked shirts you think he must’ve made a mistake of some sort, but upon closer inspection, u can see that he is indeed an intricately dressed man. Love the wash of the jeans and teh small details. great photo. =]
This reminds me of one of the hottest looks I’ve ever seen;a guy pulls up beside me at a stop light, full mountain man beard, full frizzy head of hair,calm and quiet yet very focused wide eyed almost madman-like, driving a brand new ferarri sport coupe.
Saw him a couple of times in early Fall, with the same shoes, similar jeans, and checked shirt. His look is very deliberate. His hair and beard look slightly unkempt in this photo, but I assure you in person that is not the case. Each time I’ve seen him I have been struck by how great he looks — last time was at the airport when he was with a young woman I assumed was his wife; she had a very different style but looked just as fantastic.
