    i love this look, the colors all go so together perfectly. i especially enjoy the red and blue of the tie with the lovely gray of the pants and the brown shoes.

    I'll say what I said yesterday, loving the competing prints. I have that J Crew knit tie!

    Nice looking gentleman indeed! I always like when people make the effort to dress up. He looks a million times better than most people I see on the streets!!!

    This is a nice prelude to fall. Love the menagerie of blues (tie, shirt, blazer & braces), coupled with the grey flannel trousers.

    Is it just me or is this look quite boring? This sudden rise in the preppy trend is kind of tired and this gentleman looks like he has few better looks up his sleeve.

    Love that he is in motion…bet he dances divinely (with or without the contentious pocket square!)

  50. Jazzbuff630

    September 11, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    Looks like a younger, skinnier version of me (I'm not kidding). The pocket square is a tad large for the slim profile of the garments. Otherwise, a good eye for pattern mixing.

  51. Anton P. S.

    September 11, 2009 at 1:23 pm

    Very dapper, although a little confused by the hanky in his pocket. I wish I had the confidence to dress this way everyday. Or maybe if I dressed this way everyday I'd have more confidence?

    Perfect. Love the fit of those gorgeous pants. Like that it is preppy and trad but modern without irony. Maybe that's a spare shirt in his pocket.

    He has made what are some very smart items of clothing look incredibly untidy! Is that a tea towel in his breast pocket?

    This is just one of those outfits that could not be plotted or planned. I can feel the improvisation that took place as he left the house.

    This look is too studied. Suspenders , clownish looking pocketsquare , fake glasses , tie bar on a knit tie, trendy hat….To most this would appear to be a good look, but i beg to differ.

    yeah baby. colors fantastic! shock of teal/turquoise with the navy and red and conservative check. brown shoes grey slacks…he's perfecto. i would have put a tan scarf in my pocket, but then i wouldn't be him. thanks for this guy!

  69. Bobby

    September 11, 2009 at 5:09 pm

    It surprises me that so many people love this look. To me, it looks extremely phony and sloppy. It looks as if he had a few interesting pieces in his closet and threw them all on, then hoped that they would all be cohesive. Or ironic. Either way this is no good.

    The best thing about this image is that the gent himself is in control of the clothes. It is his character that shines and he is using his wardrobe as an extension of his image. Quelle panache!

    Knit tie is nice – quite long though, isn't it. Could have shortened the pants as well!

    September 12, 2009 at 9:09 am

    awkward looking stance. the way he tips his hat is more similar to a beggar or entertainer's prelude to a request for a tip.

    if i saw this man in dallas-land of dockers and synthetic golf shirts-he would totally make my day. i don't understand all the nit-picking-this man is a gift to everyone who is lucky enough to see him. he perfectly presents the joy of being alive.

    I really, absolutely see nothing out of the ordinary here. His tie bar is too wide, but then there's probably a 'cool' reason for it.

    September 12, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    This is a very charming look, however I feel that each of these pieces are stunning independent of each other but not pieced together like this.

    Too many colours/prints/textures/shapes to be a coherent look, in my opinion.

    But kudos to his confidence, bravado and whimsy.

  103. travelbug

    September 12, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    A lot going on there.
    The hat with piping band, the pin in the lapel, the hastily folded handkerchief, the suspenders…

    I think in this case a bit less would be indeed more. I don't mind the tie with the shirt, they're kinda perky together. I'd just like to see some visual discipline applied.

    But then maybe you wouldn't have snapped him.

    I love the effort and attitude, but to me, this is more fashion than style.

    He clearly knows how to mix patterns, colors, and knows what fits him.

    The truly unnecessary accessory here though, are his braces. His pants fit perfectly such that he doesn't need a belt which means that he doesn't need braces either. This makes the look look "fake" to me.

    Just sayin'.
