I love it. Love it. Love it. He clearly is comfortable with his outfit and rocks it! Looks feminine? So what? It’s fabulous for strutting down the street anyway! As they say, people may stare so make it worth their while!
I think that Scott is a genius of precision, but I can’t help wonder what this is all about. Scott, can you share some commentary about what you like about this, as a complete look? Is it safe to say that it is an observational commentary about a new men’s sillouette?
the jeans wreak havoc on the natural proportions of his body. This outfit is designed to make one inhabit the posture of a sexual target;on a woman it would be slutty and somewhat pathetic;on a man…… shirts ok
I think the “off-ness” may come as a result of the visible ankle? I think the outfit may look a bit more “on” did the jeans not have a folded cuff. It would be a bit more complete, more contrasting with a full-on skinny jean and loose-fitting shirt; perhaps a different shoe.
I don’t think men look good in skinny pants. Men look particularly goofy in low-wasted and short skinny pants. The problem isn’t gender ambiguity (which I dig); the problem is poor proportions. Most men have shorter-than-ideal legs. If you further shorten them with a low rise and then seal the deal by rolling up the hems, you end up looking like a gorilla with giant torso and tiny limbs. Even longer-legged women rarely get away with this look. Bulky and stocky — instead of long and lean. Not what this guy was going for, I am sure.
I hate it when men are able to wear women clothes yet look 10 times better in them then we do. I love this look. I think I’ll be wearing something like this to work on Friday. This gentlemen seem “free”. I think that caption under the photo should read: To heck with what other’s might think or say. This is me world!!!
It’s nice to see everyone debating fashion ! It seems as though people have strong opinions about this photograph, leaning a bit more towards the negative. While his style may not be your taste, remember that fashion is about having fun & allowing the world into your inner workings by visually expressing your thoughts and emotions on the outside. This is how he wants us to see him & he obviously put some thought and effort (but not too much, which is great)into this outfit- can you really imagine this guy in a chambray Tommy Hilfiger shirt & pair of khaki’s ??? Now, that wouldn’t look right, would it ?? side note to Sart- love what you’ve capturted here on your blog and in all of your amasing photographs… please do keep up the great work. best regards!
Well…I think he looks great because he is confident in what he is wearing. Besides, you can always count on the sartorialist to highlight new york’s unique looks, and this look is no different. I respect this guy for breaking with the gender norms of fashion.
This look is absolutely jarring. Individually the top and bottom seem to work, but my neurons begin to misfire when I try to look at the entire ensemble. This man has made himself into a fashion centaur.
As a piece of post-modern art, it is brilliant. As a fashion style, it makes me shudder a little. Kudos??
i cant take it! I love him and I am a little scared. I can almost hear him sneering just a bit or maybe groaning from his pants being a little to tight? His look reminds me of a fashion plate game and the funny pairings of the different tops and bottoms or of an exquisite corpse drawing exercise where you connect the lines not knowing what the other person has drawn. WOW!
