    love the jacket, and the baggy pant is very interesting. I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to rock em. But he’s doing a good job of it!

    Love the wing tip formalism on top and I want to like the giant stove pipes…they always come back when you least expect it. I remember wearing them in the early nineties but at that time everything had a faded dungaree quality…these new ones are that great dark denim, I’m intrigued.

    His clothes drape beautifully on him. Total elegance and style.

    Another gentleman wearing the baggy jean expertly.

    He is a stunning man. And i like the odd shape of his watch too.

    I have never seen that collar worn in that way, I love it when people mix it up like this.

    I love, love, love his wide leg pants. They look great with his fitted vest.

    Fab!
    The huge pants on this guy and the Russian the other day are a look into the future. And definitely
    in step with the Depression Style that we’ll all be rocking in a matter of minutes.Navy sneakers, excellent.

    Great look except for the baggy pants. If his pants were fitted he would have aced a overall great look.

    He looks great. It’s quite a put together look but it doesn’t look forced or as if he’s trying to hard. Maybe that’s because it is a true sartorial expression of his character, which, for me is an important component of good style. Even his sneakers are navy blue – wow!

    Oh wow. He cuts quite the dashing figure. And the baggy jeans. Wow. I love it. The watch looks interesting too.

    Great look – I love the fitted top half-baggy lower half look on both men and women if you have the figure for it. That late 80′s-early 90′s Gigli silhouette still works for me.

    Oh, lovely! The wing collar and v-neck of his white shirt under vest play up his angular features and hair line. Then the looser fit and denim of the pants contrast with the formal on top. I like this guy!

    The oversized pants look nominally better on this chap than they did on the guy a day or so ago, but what’s going on with all the fabric?? He’s got great accessories.

    I think flared jeans are making a come back….

    I like his outfit. Would love to have a close up of his watch. :)

    He looks great. Must admit that I do not like the look of phat pants. I have been liking the fuller cuts that people are wearing lately but these are too much full, not enough fit. Maybe they’re a challenge for me and will grow on me in time.

    Hey Scott(:
    I love your blog; and those people whom you take; they are so much of an inspiration!

    I’m currently taking tons of street snapshots and your blog never fails to inspire and makes me aspire, to be the young (female; amateur) Scott Schuman in Singapore!

    A great way to mix the elegant and the casual (even if I’m not a fan of the pants).

    This man is beautiful….

    I absolutely love the top half.

    I am the king I am, the king I am I am I am…

    But seriously, I like this silhouette with the close fitting top and the lower half oversized and loose. This would work well on a woman. I’d girly-up the white shirt with lace or ruffles and have the denim more fitted in the hips. My shoes would be sky high heels and my hair would be long, free and impecably trimmed.

    I’m going to have to get used to the baggy denim, but overall I love his look. Some kind of prim, badass, worker magic.

    I just can’t enjoy these jeans. I’m not sure if it’s just me , but I find they look like maternity clothing.

    i like his style. the top half looks formal, the bottom is very sk8eresque. i also wouldn’t mind getting a puff of what he’s smokin’…

  39. Nanashi

    February 6, 2009 at 5:11 pm

    I love every single thing about him! I guess the whole outfit works because he is very tall and he kept his hair tightly tied. Another great way of interpreting denim.

    interesting. at first glance the baggy jeans turned me off and i’m still not sure. but with the rest of the outfit, they’re almost like an homage to traditional japanese hakama.

    The wide-leg pants are beautiful – reminding me a little of the womens louis vuitton rtw spring collection!

    so distinguished and exquisite – the second or third post's comment "modern & sexy shogun" really hit on it. nothing new to contribute to the conversation, but i love this shot too much to not say so.

    Like a bad guy from a 40s movie. Really unique. I like it.

    What I loved about what we called baggies in the 70s was the bulk of the pant paired with a clunky shoe. The new baggy look I like, but not with low profile shoes.

    I still prefer large shoes.

    Other than this is probably my favourite Satorialist photo ever.

    He needs a tie. And it’s not “wingtip”, people, that’s a kind of shoe. it’s “wing”.

  63. TJoy

    His outfit would look much better if his shirt was a bit longer (long for it to cover his zipper or around that area). His lower midsection is a bit off-putting and so by doing this, it would slenderize his outfit a bit.

    The dark, draped denim balances the more formal top perfectly. A bit Yohji, no?

    I like the look but… the proportions of the fitted upper body and the very wide denims are calling to mind Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp. I would need to see this look in motion.

    Master class! This is how wide leg should be done, in contrast the the gentleman below in McQueen’s scarf. Very unique and badass.

    February 7, 2009 at 2:06 pm

    Do love the wing collar. And the watch! But I have to say, the last wide-legged denim man was far more successful with the overall silhouette.

    February 7, 2009 at 3:05 pm

    His top half (including hair and facial expression)looks like a 19th century Japanese official, but from the waist down, the look definitely takes getting used to.

    lately I’ve been skipping over the male photos on this site,(not because of quality may I add, just lack of interest on my part) but THIS..he is exceptional, the baggies are perfect and essential to the look. Where can I get those cheek bones?

    He’s handsome and seems to have a good deal of presence. Interesting combo. Love the vintage formal. He’s rockin’ those pants but I’m still on the fence about all that bigness.

    Very sharp. That watch is amazing! The face of the shape is really interesting but the (navy?) face without numbers makes it look more elegant and less like a costume piece. Anyone know who makes it?

    David- LOL, that’s hilarious!

    La Sartorialista- hilarious and accurate. Totally Depression style!

    Andrea’s commment about Chaplin’s Little Tramp really nailed it on the head.

    Still a very cool look. Intimidating for sure.

    It’s nice to see the Baggy look coming back. The combination of Jacket,Vest,pants and shoes is simple but still creates enough tension to have something special.
