I will be the odd one out and say that I don’t really dig the cardigan. I do love everything else; the textures at the wrist, the shirt, even the computer bag. However, the cardigan just doesn’t do it for me. I like the idea of an out-of-the-blue texture here, but I am not 100% certain that cardigan is it. I will revisit the shot and see.
I see six different patterns. In terms of my own personal style, that’s too much. I would love to see the jacket he’s wearing worn with a simpler white or sky blue button up — or just the patterned shirt by itself. That being said, though the patterns “clash” they “clash constructively” — if such a thing could be said. It doesn’t look like he simply decided to but on whatever clothes happened to be on his floor that morning.
I wonder, did you take this picture on the sly, because this man looks very skeptical. I love the way he used more than one pattern, it is very affective. Not only do the colours complement each other, but so do the patterns, it really works.
I think he nailed it with this look – I thought he looked amazing from his undercut and bracelets to his dark denim jeans. Then I noticed the tie and wow – I envy the people can mix items, colour, pattern etc so well.
