    Very suave. I like the navy blue coat.

    If it's cold enough to wear a pea coat, it's also cold enough to wear proper socks and turn your cuffs down.

      LOL. If you can leave your face and wrists open, you can leave your ankle open. Its not crucial.

    This is such a great shot. I love the light and the balance.

    I also noticed the socks, which reminds me, have you managed to locate a retailer in NYC for those mini ones you were looking for?

    The top half looks so debonair…but the bottom, not so much.

    great look.

    could use a nice pair of red socks to make it perfect i think.

    LOL William has a point. This look is great, but seriously it doesn't make much sense, but then again since when does fashion make sense?

    Well this is a man who likes to hedge his bets there's a piece of clothing for every season here and it just doesn't work it didn't work when we only had a shot of his feet (freaking footies) and its no better full length.

    Agreed on the socks, if a gentleman is going to go the "sockless" route, he need to get a few pairs of these:

    The colors and styles are all mixed up like he grabbed the first thing. The only trace of current look is from his ankles down. Maybe he is in love…?

    There are those goddamn footies again. What a suave type, huh? Love the eyebrows. Stop the light from reflecting into his eyes, I bet. I'd love to chase this cat up an olive tree, if you know what I mean.

    put a cape on him and he's ready for halloween – as count dracula.

    interesting looking man. he'd make me look twice on the street. especially at the shaped brows.

    still hate the short pants. a trend that can go away anytime.

    footies make sense, though i'm not fond of how they look.

  38. Coy Fallacy

    He looks very classic. I would definitely give him a double take! I love the coat and the rolled cuffs…..very 50s-esque.

    Too, too, too many colours. Navy Pea coat and stripes with sport socks and dark shoes. At least some brown brogues with laces please. I understand the reasoning regarding current trends, but Spring/Summer is beginning in the southern hemisphere. It's time to find the transition wear to winter.

    one should either wear socks or not wear socks, but rule those silly footie things out. they look about as stylish as an athletic knee support and ruin the line of a good pair of shoes.

    fashion rules are meant to be broken.
    one doesn't need socks.
    one doesn't need shoe laces.
    one can cuff up their trousers.

    you can be well groomed on your way to the office, but still look as though your heart is somewhere on a beach.

    I think he looks like a house painter going to his next job; he had no time to take a shower and had to rush out, so he even forgot to tie his shoe laces. In the rush, he put on his little brother's pants. It's too bad the whole things looks so ugly, becasue there are nice individual elements, such as the peacoat for example.

    The top half and the bottom half, it makes no sense.

    You know what it looks like? Without wanting to make fun of him. It looks like he just waded with his feet through a stream and is trying to dry them while walking.

    The top half suggests cold weather, the bottom half suggests warm weather.

    On the other hand, if people in Milan are doing it, soon people across the world may be doing it..

    In this case, the "footies" showing from the shoes is really nice! Maybe because the volume of the coat balances with it. I never thought I would compliment a guy with footies but he certainly knew how to pull it off.

    The hair and eyebrows are captivating, the angular face and beautiful layers of navy entrancing, but rolled cuffs belong on a beach with deck shoes, and I can never accustom myself to men in short pants and dress shoes with oddly exposed ankles. Don't do it. Not attractive, no matter how "chic."
