I love the cardigan and esp. the shirt and bow tie. The cuffed-jeans are pitch perfect as well as his hair and the wing tips. I just kind of wish he had Coco Chanel’s voice running through his head and took “one thing off,” (That Jacket!) before leaving home.
Check out the shoes guys, awesome! And the gray jacket underneath the leather one… And the bowtie… He got it all, he could stay like this forever. Definitely a great new take on Elvis and the urban cowboys…
come on people, personal style? never seen anyone on street dressed like this? take a stroll past 650 madison, or better yet into a rl polo store or even section at bloomies and you’ll see it. yawn i’m so over this look.
sorry sart, maybe you were yearning for classic american after your recent travels?
i say either loose the bow tie or the cardigan. its just a little too much. the look would be much nicer with just the leather bomber the shirt and tie or everything except the bomber. also i dont like how hes missing the bottom buttons on his cardi
As mltt said, yeah, that’s hawt. But, I agree, it’s just one item too many. If maybe there was no bow tie and just an “air-tie” or the hair wasn’t so sixties or that cardi could’ve gone. But the cuffed jeans and hot sockless shoes must stay. Definitely.
hm. i’m not a fan. it’s not so much the look i don’t like, but more the fact that it looks so calculated. i think he went a roll-up too far w/ the jeans… it would have been better executed with a shorter pair of pants that didn’t have to be rolled up like that.
imho – one shouldn’t look like they’ve put so much effort/thought into dressing; a smart outfit looks like it came together effortlessly.
i love it how whenever sartorialist puts up a picture of an asian man dressed in a very classic american or western look, there are always some ppl who will make comments about how the look is copied or ripped off of american classic…but when a caucasian male dresses with a similar style, no one blinks an eye. or when chinese women are accused of looking too carbon copied in china. ever stop to think that there are cosmopolitan cities in china where ppl are dressed not too differently from cosmopolitan cities in america and europe? get a clue already.
Everything he is wearing is classic. There is the cardigan sweater, the rolled up jeans, the black leather jacket. Every piece could have been taken out of any man’s closet since 1945. But his proportions and stance are what makes it his own. Yes, I like this and think he pulls it off.
what I wish for is more pictures of great hair. We are always obsessing about the styling and the wardrobe, altough I must give you props for noticing the subtlies of makeup. However, waht would be really great is if you would devote a section to fantastic, personalized hair styles. Keep up the good work, even in New Zealand we eat it up!
