Nooooooooo! Pressing would ruin the look–it would wipe out the cool, laid-back, summery vibe and make the look stuffy, “groomed,” and ordinary (and really off-kilter if he kept the cuffs and sneakers).
Of course, I haven’t ironed anything in years, so I guess I’m biased. :)
The attitude is all for those to see: “I’m in a bit of a rush to make a semi-formal gathering with some close friends.” The same amount of time spent in putting on some causal shoes was spent on his square. “Hey, I’m out the door!!!”
The pose is over the top but he shows genius using navy laces to integrate those white shoes with the rest of his outfit and the lightness of the pants fabric makes the rolled up hems look exactly right. This guy has to be a menswear professional.
First of all I like our men (I’m a Milanese and he is nice enough but…there are two parts here “up and down” (and they don’t fit)…the upper part is ok but babe no iron home? You can’t put those pants you just cannot
This shows how a man doesn’t have to be well-pressed and immaculate to be stylish. The shoes may not be a general choice, but, as has been pointed out, he’s the sort of guy who can carry off this style
So of course ones initial reaction is: oh man so weird shoes and so uncouth pants. BUT on second look, it’s awesome. It’s just the right amount of “unraveling” that makes it cool and suited for summer. You don’t want to run around in a stiff suit in a heatwave. This is what you want to wear. I’m in.
I’m with the voices above: each piece, individually, makes a unique statement. I can appreciated the jacket, trousers, “shoes,” et. al., for their place. Together, however, makes me work too hard to see the contribution to each other. Maybe we look for uniformity first? Or, the complementing unit once the synthesizing process is over? http://mensnatural.co
This man definitely has panache, color choices are great but the lower half could use a good press; the shoes are the anchor for the whole outfit–right now the shoes pull down the whole outfit to the point of drowning. A nice suede loafer or an oxford would make a HUGE difference for this outfit.
Nonetheless, no one should attempt any picture without a smile. Makes a marked difference with the subject when they smile.
Wow, they say everyone has a twin, this man would be my late father’s twin. His hair, eyes expression everything. My Dad however was not a fashion guy, as a matter of fact he would pair plaids with other plaids, stripes etc. Of course “dad lookalike man” seems to have some fashion issues as well, even more reason to love him:) kisses for him!!!
I feel this is a perfect looking casual outfit. It is soo much more thought out and put together than just putting on those dreadful pajama pants, or seeing someone with their pants hanging lower than their butt with their underwear showing.
As for pant length, I think they are just fine. What is soo “right” about seeing too much fabric bunched up around a man’s shoes, or even dragging on the ground? The man has also not just thrown on a tee shirt or some sweat shirt after rolling out of bed.
If you think about it, this costume of the day is completely thought out. The man has worked the color navy from his shoe strings up to his tie and pocket square. All the textures of his outfit are rusticated in a way, but look cohesive. The wrinkled cotton of the pants is just a different version of a rumpled pair of linen pants. I give this man, for his casually elegant and thought out look, Two Thumbs Up!
One more thing…It might be criticized here, but when the so called “godly Famous Designers” sends it down a runway, it will be thought of as GENIUS.
The white and the beige is a good colours combination, one of the most fashionable and interesting. Italians are a masters to mix different colours and different fabric at the same time. Unfortunately the italians spend their time for this stupid questions. Obviously i am italian and so also i.
