    that skull necklace is the perfect accessory for a pirate halloween costume.

    sometimes the back story is more fascinating than the clothes could ever be!

    Both these gentlemen look so cool in their completely different ways. Love that suit and i love the hat-necklace-espadrilles look. Great photo, Sart! i can’t wait to be in New York again…

    Ah! The guy on the left is wearing espadrilles! After reading quite a few online discussions on why they are not cool for men, I decided to just follow my instinct and order some- after noticing them on a couple of runways for SS ’09. I mean, they have to beat flip-flops, right? I also see a tab-collar shirt, whose resurrection troubles me; that was a look that I really do not wish to see again(doesn’t it come from the time when shirts had detachable collars, and people could not always afford to replace them when they wore out?). I will be interested to hear other comments on the giant skull necklace (who is wearing whom?). Jorge from W Palm Beach

    I love the way the guy on the left has gotten himself up, can’t decide if the beads or the espadrilles are my favorite part. And before someone complains about the pleated pants, I think they work because his shirt is molded to his upper body and the slouchy pants are right. Woof!

    Nice shot. When you’re this young and beautiful anything goes. Skull necklace with Panama hat and multiple bracelets worn with your watch?- no problem. Actually the whole thing makes a wild kind of visual sense. They couldn’t be more relaxed while still paying (lots of) attention to the way they look. I like them both.

    Sart, you threw us a curve ball! That outfit is so confusing I don’t know where to begin or end. Pleated pants rolled up, espadrilles, a skull necklace, gold cuff and a Panama hat! I wonder if he really thought that out or got dressed in the dark. Although I have to admit, he would look good in anything!

    The gentleman on the left looks amazing! Although he is very styled, it looks effortless on him. He makes me want to purchase a pair of pleated trousers and I’m not a fan of them.

    I call it “the new parisian style” car c’est un peu jazzy chic et nonchalant.

    Le parisien se doit d’avoir un air nonchalant sinon c’est pas un vrai parisien :)

    Stellar! Very french, like a new version of A Bout de Souffle, although the guy in the fantastic dark suit maybe sells something a little more romantic than newspapers. Copies of Homme Vogue maybe. Mr. Hat is magic head to toe. The skulls, the fit of the shirt in contrast to volume in his trousers, the crushed heel of his shoes. Mr. Sedgwick is no slouch either although his suit is nicely so. Perfect colours too.

  27. do you like my tight sweater

    August 11, 2008 at 11:38 am

    The gentleman on the left is evidently an individual who sets trends, instead of following them, but the gentleman on the right is equally elegant in his more subdued approach to style. And I love how you’ve captured this shot, Sart!

    Agreeing with Landis that the bracelets are just the slightest tad too much. Bracelets sans timepiece? Perfect.

    I can’t even tell how much I’m feeling the man’s style on the left! This is a great summer look! The necklace, the hat, the shirt, and pants…this cat definitely knows how to rock it!
    His 5 O’clock shadow adds to the look as well.

    the espadrilles are infinitely better than flip-flops or man-dals. I often wonder what to wear during the heat of the summer other than loafers or shoes sans socks.

    Great photo but fashion-wise the guy in the blue shirt looks totally overdone to my eye. If I saw him on the street I would think he is trying too hard, especially with the skulls and wrist bling. The guy in the suit looks much better.

    Jorge, you’re right that shirt derives from the type that would have had a detachable collar, but that doesn’t make it a tab collar shirt. a tab collar shirt has a latch which buttons midway behind the collar points and is hidden by the tie. it was popular in the 1930s.

    what I love is that no one in Paris is going to snigger or laugh at this in your face, singular, honest statement. in almost any American city but NYC and LA, he’d probably be considered “weird.” makes me want to live in Paris again!

    ok.. so heres the story..
    guy on the left in from venezuela, from italian father, lived in milan for 8 yrs before moving to paris just a few months ago.
    the guy on the right is italian. they both work in fashion. and they know each other from milan.
    they ran into each other outside of the givenchy mens fashion show in paris, were they both live currently. they were chattin’ b4 going to watch the show.
    the skull neclace is from le bijoux de sophie, from paris. His espadrilles were bought in spain, for really cheap. he had the “G” embroidered to them, from his name, Giovanni.
    He really does dress like this everyday.. and he doesnt think too much about it.
    You should have seen his outfit for the givenchy couture show! it was out of control! sartorialist must have that shot somewhere !

    ps.. the bracelets, he designs himself. he usually not wears them with that watch. but with 2 neon colors plastic watches he wears atogether.. and they look real cool..

    paris is the one city where one can dress up to express oneself.. and people will appreciate it..
    thats why we all live there !!!

    cheers!

    While I appreciate the sartorial flair of the gent on the left, methinks we men, in general, should steer clear of the oversized necklace as an acessory. Mens’ fashion is simple and we all benefit from keeping it that way. Besides, there are TOO many ways for large necklaces to go TERRIBLY TERRIBLY worng. Great editorial look, but men, you have been warned.

    Thank you ‘anonymous’ 12.26 for the links to garancedore.fr with the pics of man on left. It has kind of ruined my little illusion though – that Sart just came across these two on some little side street. Garancdore’s shot is in the exact same location, on the same day (Mauricio, thanks for the back story). So, these guys are hanging around and people are taking photos of them…? I prefer to imagine that it’s all a little more spontaneous and unexpected, like the wonderful Andre Benjamin story last week. Oh, and Ricola, you don’t acually believe these two have girlfriends to you? ;-)

    Take a look at the garance dore pics of the guy on the right, the close-up shows you just how perfect his double breasted blazer is, the fit on the shoulders is amazing, as is the wide collar and general slim fit of the body. Then to throw on a pair of baggy trousers-he’s just taken it to another level. Simple, striking.

    The guy in the suit, the guy in the suit! Love the deep blue color, the insomniac’s shadow under his eye, the sluchy look of what must be a good suit…sigh. Look at that helmet…this guy has style.

    Suits are great when you are someone who does not do more than bathe and shave – and wants to look good.

    This suit would be killer on a woman wearing a truly great feminine perfume…

    The guy on the left is wearing espadrilles which leaves me no choice but to say that Salvatore Ferragamo was the first person to have released this style, “summer of 2007.” I guess it takes a man with style to get the ball rolling.
