On the Street….The Hat That Makes the Suit, Paris

I love the less structured, relaxed nature of his suit, but the whole look rests on the coordinated slouch of his hat.

This is also one of those looks that, if worn exactly the same way as this gentleman, would look great on the right girl.

    I totally agree with you, the proportions are amazing. He has a kind of refinement to his face and the way he holds himself that act as a juxtaposition to the actual outfit itself. You have such an incredible eye.

    Love the relaxed fit of this suit. Been seeing alot of this silhouette lately for mens suits. The hat relaxes the look even more as well as complete the look. Good job brethren!!

    I would tuck in my shirt. But nice look anyway. Nice turnup on the pants and I dig the shiny shoes.

    Agreed. Love menswear inspired looks on women…though it most definitely takes a certain kind women to wear it well.

    He's adorable from the waist up. The crotch of the pants is too low and there's too much fabric overall.

    You are so right. This is incredibly amazing looking on him- the perfect mixture of formal but casual

    I'd wear this :) probably with shorts instead though haha or else i'd look like a confused boy from behind!

    June 30, 2010 at 1:54 pm

    For me it's the glasses that really caught my eye. If I had passed him in the street without them I probably would have taken a second glance, but forgotten him.

    If this a trend it's an important direction – a return to a balanced profile – both sharp and casual – this chap has really thought this through.

    The shape of the shoe balanced by a wider cut of trouser compliments the crisp shoulder and beautifully proportioned jacket – mature and considered.

    The softness of the T shirt and the hat are a perfect compliment – gently witty.

    Well done you for finding him, and well done him,
    clever boy.

    Nice picture but I'm not a fan of this look. I prefer the italian suits that make men look elegant and cool at the same time to this I-don't-even-know-how-to-describe-look. But THAT hat has saved this look from a catastrophe.

  32. Beth

    June 30, 2010 at 3:49 pm

    I am not in love with this look, but what I do like is that although the suit is very relaxed, it still fits him and doesn't look like he borrowed it from his dad! The addition of the hat makes me think this guy doesn't take himself too seriously.

    funny. i had the opposite reaction. i think the hat makes him look a little like a bum – it ruins the rest of the look. the suit is great, though. and thank goodness, no ankles showing. so tired of seeing pedal-pushers on men.

    I love his outfit, and yes I would wear it. I love hats, especially Fedoras and Berets. Love the men's look, thank you Mr. Lauren! His look is a bit dark, almost like he's pre-fall but still I like it a lot. Very eclectic!

    The jacket fits beautifully. I have to get used to the wide trousers. That hat is pretty slick and his eyebrows, well, full marks for that.

    nice jacket and hat, but it's as if he got the pants from a suit that's 3 sizes bigger than the jacket. are we going back to baggie pants now???

    Like Felicity, I disagree with those low-crotch baggy pants. From the waist down it looks more like a pyjama than an actual suit. Too much fabric. Nice pattern, though.

  63. Davidikus

    July 2, 2010 at 5:55 am

    I am really tempted to think that the teesh actually makes the suit! The hat is barely visible.

    Like a lot of the comments above. I'd have to totally agree as well. This look would be fabulous of a girl, it would dead sexy.

    I want that tarten suit for me. but maybe the trousers should be a little less baggy, he would look a lot better if they tappered in at the ankle..

    I'm going to go against the grain – it's too baggy, too big and it's wearing him. Horrible big turn-ups and sleeves look too long. Same goes for the hat.

    I love that the "slouch" of this look is everywhere except his perfectly fitting shoulders. Without that, it would look like he is wearing his dad's old suit.

    The suits is from "John Lawrence Sullivan", which is the best tailor making collection brand in Japan as perfect as established major brands do. If you don't know the
    brand, you had better check it.

    The only way I see this outfit looking right on a girl would be if she didn't have many curves. This suit would provide the curve to the girl right where she needed them to be which would be amazing.

    This is wonderful. The loose fit wouldn't have worked in a solid color, and the hat looks part gumshoe, part "Make 'Em Laugh." And those glasses! To me, though, what makes this so great is the expression on his face: "It's quite nice that you like my outfit, but I wouldn't mind very much if you didn't."
