On the Street….Summer Pattern Mixing p2

I love the bold pattern of his jacket, and he takes it to a whole new level combining it with the small check pattern of his pants.

    I love the jacket! I want his bag for sure!!! Rock on man!!! :) It works because the pants are not super bold.

    This is awesome. The jacket's pattern is so subtle yet very basic looking.

    very elegant colors. tie maybe a bit too long, but still ok.

    the jacket: in itself, it's a nice jacket, but the pattern doesn't fit his style. he appears disguised with it, and not at ease.

    two more things: the jackt sleeves are too long, and the pochette should have a lighter fabric (see the bulge?)

    Good god, I love that blazer! Normally I don't like prints other than plaids, tweeds and the like but this just rocks! I also love how he keeps it in one color family too, something I plan on doing more in the fall

    This is my first comment on a photo of yours and I have been following for a very long time – This guy is one upping everyone and everything – pattern mix, color combinations, tie, then throwing everyone out the window with the large alligator folder and vintage frames. Would have loved to see his shoes and cropping of the pants. Sharp, well planned, light, calm, and classy.

    What a gorgeous jacket! And so well coordinated with the tie and pants. The white handkerchief in his breast pocket adds another dimension to the jacket. A very nice photograph, with the man framed by the green landscaping in the background, and a touch of color coordinated sidewalk.

    The only thing I see is that GORGEOUS chocolate crocodile bag! YUMMMM! I do like his blazer- the print is very ethnic, but still modern.

    But what is up with his tie? The cut at the bottom is very sloppy. I have never seen a tie like this and I must say I don't like it.

    The jacket reminds me of a polyester double knit suit my father wore in the early 1970's… it was far from being his best suit purchase. In summary, this jacket rubs me the wrong way.

    I just wanted to share my observation that Asian men tend not to associate their sense of style and fashion with their masculinity (or lack of). To them (us – yes I am of asian descent) its a form of freedom of expression and feeling good about one's self.

    This gentleman definitely says it all with his expression, smile and stance – oh and of course his choice of garb for the day!!!

    Gotta love that grey!

    ah yes, far more successful than the pattern mix of the young lady. the patterns weren't bad but I found the overall look really sloppy. scott, you often ask us gals what we think of X or Y on a guy….I'd like to ask guys: do you really find it attractive to see a bra peering out of a garment that was not meant to feature the bra? Or do find it sloppy? Let's not get into whether she's a babe or not; just the general sartorial aesthetic. thanks!

    I wish I could go back in time and go shopping with him when he bought this. Did he say, "YES, I WANT IT?" or did he try it on a bunch of times and hesitate and finally give in. Or did he have it made to order? I think he looks like a designer or architect so he probably had it made.

    Just gorgeous!

    Despit the jacket pattern, what really catches my eye is the tie and the bag. It breaks up the image in a complimenting way to the rest of his wear.

    I did not however notice the pocket unit Marquis had mentioned and do agree in the suggestion of a change. But maybe not particularly to the color. I think the kerchief could be done in the appropriate size to create less bulge.

    The mixed pattern size between the jacket and trousers works really well; however, the tie is not adding value. I love knit ties but while this tie is a solid the texture of the weave creates the effect of a small pattern, which clashes with the small patern of the trousers. I feel that a silk tie of the same color would have worked better for this fine chap.

    It is quite fetching, but I've got a problem with suits in the summertime. Sure you've got to look business-like at times, but isn't there a better solution than a jacket? Makes me uncomfortable just looking at it. He looks cool, but that can't last all day.

    There are looks like this where you notice where you notice the patterns seperately as unique pieces but then as you take a look at the whole ensemble and it's a whole other thing. I like the juxtapositioning of the patterns.

    That bag is to DIE for, and I really like the pattern of his blazer.

    love the outfit. the jacket definitely has an amazing design. the pants are my favorite thing though. not a fan of the tie. i like the pattern, but the style of it (flat end) is funny looking)

    Does anyone know which tailor (or perhaps shop, although it looks bespoke) the blazer if from? If so please post.

    Overall great look, not my absolute favourite tie for this look but it works, and the bag is great in the look, perhaps not so great outside of it.

    That tie is most definitely NOT American Apparel. I'm guessing Charvet with Purple Label and Drakes of London as my 2nd and 3rd guesses.

    I only wonder if this is a happy coincidence, or if this guy is a genius. Hardly matters though. On this day, this guy was a badass.

    I want this jacket and bag, and im a 27yr old woman! So quirky. Would love to get my hands on some of that fabric to whip up a big box pleated skirt….

    It seems like each piece of his outfit fits simultaneously together. The Crocodile brief case accentuates his use of light blues and teals. I really appreciate his use of colors and taste.
