    The photo well-captures the style, and the style is horrific. The sneakers would be cool with trouser shorts with a 12 inch inseam.

    Normally i hate the long baggy shorts, a look all too prevalent here in the uk, but you have found 2 very cool examples: the guy in the top photo works the proportion with the large spot jacket and matching his shirt and espadrilles so the shots aren’t the main focus and those over-size gym shorts in the second picture (they look like our school gym shorts when i was in first grade..) are just wild!

    I think the proportion is right in the first style, but the shorts themselves are rather disappointing. I would have liked very much to have seen the second style from the front. On a man of delicate and slight features, it would look stunning. A different pair of shoes would make it less schoolboy though.

    Does anybody know where I can find either of those Nike shoes?

    Thanks!

    sorry but those socks are probably the worst ive seen. The Nike shoes arent anything special either. This shot was disappointing.

    ALL.

    I’m sorry, but “very full shorts” are CULOTTES. One step away from a man-skirt. No thanks.

    I don’t know if I’m comfortable pairing any kind of “sports” sneakers with non-workout apparel.

    I love Charlie Porter’s outfit in the first shot, and the shoes are wonderful. Strange accessorizing though with the pile of country house style cushions….

    Love the full shorts, very different and interesting for men. Very easy and casual.

    Nice relaxed looks, but the most important thing is: Where can I buy these pillows ?

    I like the way the man in the upper photo seems to pose, without posing, of course; I like the attitude that comes across.

    i think the proportion of the second photo is not flattering (especially if you have skinny calves)…i would wear this pair of full shorts with a pair of boots for fall.

    Fantastic outfits all of them, especially the upper one.

    Both pair of shoes are Nike. The one on the left are from London and the right ones are from Dubai.
    And the man with the shorts is my man!!

    I don’t like these at all. But then again I hardly like to see men in shorts.

    I like the smart shorts look – nice and crisp. You had some really good examples here last summer. The slouchy shorts don’t do it for me to the same extent. There is a bit of a sartorial confusion going on here, especially on the first pic. On the second pic the baggy shorts look a bit like a skirt but without the manly charm of a kilt or even a sarong.

    I do like Charlie but I don’t like the look – too many patterns, too many colours. Good as an example of ‘not giving a shit attitude’ but as an example of fine dressing? Not sure about it.

    Shoes in the first photo are Tom’s. Cool shoes, v. comfortable, inexpensive, go with everything, and for every pair you buy one gets donated to someone in the world who can’t afford shoes.

    The pillows look like they’re from Missoni home.

    BuenĂ­simos los tenis de la derecha, y como quedan tan bien con todo el outfit en general, se adaptan de una manera casi perfecta. Love love your blog!
