I am not sure why, but love that he has the leather jacket under the wool coat. Something about the layering. I donÂ´t seem to be able to put a finger on it. Maybe itÂ´s because I can feel by looking at the outfitÂ´s comfortable to have on, or something about the sensation of the wool coat sliding on the smooth leather when he moves.
most definately a texturally reliant ensemble…it highlghts his fair complexion effortlessly.
the most intirguing feature of this however (for me at the very least), is the use of angular shapes within the block textures. The sharp lapel of his coat, the embossing of the leather jacket, the bottom of his trousers being rolled up and the detailing of the shoes. It works very cohesively with his hairstyle, and the composition itself.
I love the all-black outfits of this guy.. the detail of the leather jacket is stunning.. and also his pants! suit him well! Blazer goes outside a leather jacket.. never thought of that but cool idea in this case. :) Texture on top of texture indeed.
The rolled-up trousers are key to unifying the proportions.
Why?The coat, the jacket, the trousers and the socks.
It’s a 4/4 beat of texture, so to speak.
And the exposed socks add another descending gradient of texture.
I’d love to see this exact look on a woman….it is so subtle and exquisite, how could it not work?
BTW, Sart, I think you are absolutely KILLING IT lately! Every photo seems to capture unique and true style, not just fashion. http://www.yourplasticbag.tumblr.com
That is definitely an interesting pile-up of textures — Variations on the Theme of Black. I do love the perforations and details on the leather jackets. There’s something a bit Edward Scissorhands about it (I’m still recovering from Halloween).
The overcoat, pants, socks and shoes are fine, but that leather jacket is not working for me It commands too much attention on a look that, overall, should work on subtlety to impress. The jacket is just attention-getting and annoying.
Really love the combination of the leather jacket under the overcoat. It combines two completely different styles in one, and I can pretty much say it excites me as an idea. The pants have a beautiful texture, and I would just love to go buy them for myself, which pretty much sounds weird, but oh, what can I do? I m not the type of person that wears a lot of black, I dont even have many clothes that are black, I prefer earthy and really bright and live colors, but this outfit, I just adore!
Great outfit. Leather jacket a bit too sleek for my liking, but excellent comination nevertheless. Inspired me to try some new combination and bring new life to existing wardrobe items.
Trousers are Dries van Noten I think, coat could be as well…
OMG! I really love his outfit. I don’t know where he got those pants from but they are to die for. This is what I live for. Men taking risks and experimenting with fashion. A totally unique look can be created just by playing with the texture of the outfit. The leather top only strengthens the uniqueness of his look. I hope when I become older that this is what I will dress like!
