Just started visiting your blog. Love it. I guess this look (shoes & belt) is okay because he is traveling? If we may offer our own critique, I vote for a sharp leather loafer and belt in a shade similar to his bag…
Absolutely agree. Simple, casual, earthy colours – he looks effortless. Love the jacket – is that linen?
What is it about looking ‘effortless’ that is so appealing? Maybe because I admit that generally every day I spend way too long in choosing an outfit. Particularly shoes and earrings…. So I admire someone who looks like they just ‘threw something on’ and look good.
yes i agree – the image somehow was enlarged in imageshack which made the quality go down -i will still be playing with it but I’m not crazy about having my photos floating out there on imageshack or flicker etc
I think this is a great casual summer look. I like that the wearer chose to wear complimentary hues and did not go for coordinated. I think if everything matched too closely, the belt, shoes, & bag, etc., it would appear to stodgy, not the effect he’s going for.
By the way, this is an absolutely wonderful blog. I look forward to it everyday.
Alice, I think you are right on with your effortless observation. This gent has what is called sprezatura, a studied carelessless. The ability to make the dfficult seem easy. There is a nonchalance in his style that, in my opinion, makes it elegant.
