    He looks as if he escaped from three different nautically themed prisons. The individual elements are great. Putting them together is a disaster.

    WOW!! I'm glad the shirt is solid white :) Amazing jacket, great fit and I like those pockets.Great tie also. You know how European and American striped ties are different? If the stripes are tilted (not horizontal, neither vertical) than they go from left to right or the opposite way)Snobs in Europe used to wear American striped ties and American snobs those from Europe :)

    This is more confused than anything else, to my eye. He has used distinctive patterns (to a degree of separation) but had to do so with a shade of color. And frankly, those pants are anything but complementary.

    To boot there is no consistency or unison in the accessories from what we see (can not see shoes / socks).

    If it weren’t the trousers, he’d almost pull it off. It is somehow reminiscent of an ice cream seller.

    I liked it til I got to the pants. Hum-m. They are so tight and so LOUD. Then I noticed his jacket looked shrunken. Are the pants high-water? What's on his feet? Trying too hard and a little clownish. But he himself is cute, I like his hair which points down at his nice face and unobstrusive glasses finishing with the chin whiskers.

    Much though I love your photography, and the people depicted therein, it very much seems that fashion doesn't care what age you are, as long as you're thin.

    I dont like this look, I feel he should've gone for a block colour tie rather than continued with the stripes. Maybe I'm just not daring enough.

    It kind of all works but the Tie. Fun but a wee bit to much. But this is coming from a man that wears madras shirts with tiny Thom Browne seersucker shorts. HaHa. However I do like his look for the most part.

    That anyone can possibly dislike this vexes me. Why should fashion remain a stoic quest to present oneself as a purportedly modernist abstract phenomenon, rather than to provide sensual excitement, open-mindedness, and a refreshing passion for what may come, not what has already been qua such strong adherence to the rules and inclinations we've inherited but tend to believe our own good taste?

    There are no boundaries outside of your mind.

    The yellow belt with those pants is richly evocative of something in my childhood. I love the jarring effect of the tie. Downright visceral.

    Good for him. At least he's not genuflecting to what everyone around him expects him to wear. He's wearing everything nautical that he owns in a bodacious affront against conformity.

    That… or he's picked a fight with a mariner and dressed the part accordingly or he's trying to impress a mermaid… who knows?!

    Regardless… each individual item is stunning on its own merits.

    The look doesn't work. The pants with a white shirt works. The jacket with matching or solid blue pants works, even with the tie (I would prefer a different tie). The black and white (dark navy and white?) tie would work with lots of different jackets, shirts and pants. All these stripes together do not work.

    However, this outfit could be occupational wear. I think I saw about 15 men dressed this way come out of a SmartCar in the center ring.

    Gotta love a person so willing to go against the grain, so willing to go boldly where few would tread, so willing to rock Barnum and Bailey chic.

    He is a handsome dude nonetheless and I like that he threw in a yellow belt just to add a bit of excitement to an otherwise dull outfit.


    July 28, 2009 at 1:26 pm

    Although I wouldn't personally wear this outfit, it does get me thinking about why it works.

    Although the pants and jacket both use vertical lines, they are of different width and size and color so you keep the distinctiveness between them. The tie stripes are similar in size to the jacket, but because they're horizontal, it stands out.

    You get a lot of stripes, but they are all distinct enough to break the outfit into it's components parts and it just works. If you didn't, you'd get one giant mess of confusion.

    I love it when people manage to be elegant and distinct while still being fun, surprising and sweet. Fashion should also be about having fun, about creativity, about fantasies, dreams and escapes.

    It should (also) be about having fun with what you wear and showing that you enjoy being who you are. About pleasing yourself before pleasing anyone else.

    The stripes are cool, and he can definitely pull them off, but what I love is the little bit of yellow peeking through on his belt. I find the shirt would belong better with a business suit than with this outfit. Maybe it needs to be made of a more raw cotton, or linen?

    NOTICE: Blue and white stripes do not necessarily equal nautical. How many of you actually go out sailing anyway? I sense other things that are narrow here.

    That being said, I wish you'd published a full body portrait so we can see how his pants (which may or may not be from Adam Kimmel's SS09 collection) lengthen his legs. My imagination tells me it would have been a very interesting effect.

    I love this!! It is perfectly cut, spare on excess details so that the stripes somehow work. I think his pared back grooming/hair/glasses etc make this work, too.

    I think people are trying way too hard to shock these days. I understand that style is about indivdual expression but if I saw this guy on the street I would think he was trying to prompt a reaction more than express himself through this outfit. This is ridiculous.

    Works for three reasons: the variation in the width of the stripes, the fact that the stripes on the necktie are horizontal, the splash of yellow in the belt.

    I think switching the fabrics would have worked best. The smaller lighter seersucker for the pants, and the bolder darker one for the jacket would have worked better. And I would get rid of the striped tie. He had it until he put that tie on.

    Like the contrast level of his compection and the clothes. But the pants remind me of "the boy in striped pijamas". all i see is the pants insted of how gorgeous his old tan face with this white shirt.
