    I like the idea of the outfit but I do think it makes his legs looks way too short.

    Great look! At Paris fashion week, I noticed a lot of the 'pants tucked in socks' details and really liked it…

    Interesting look. The layers and wrapping reminds me of the work of the French illustrator, Moebius

    I guess this is the Parisian equivalent of going to the market in a track or jogging suit, sloppy yet somehow and somewhat stylish.

    Well, it's all about the bearing. Nothing to do with anything in particular but how he interprets what inspires him. And who he is. Beautiful.

    Love it all. The socks over the trousers especially. If only they made pants like that in women's sizes.

    The contrasting greys and neutrals… the parka jacket, perfectly suited for the weather, comfortable yet stylish.

    I love the pants…sometimes I dress in weird proportion also, as long as it's still acceptable, it's part of the style. To me, this man is a nice one, I like the coor :)

    This is a sweet personalized looking outfit. I Love the tote bag, and shoes, with the socks pulled up over the tweed pants

    The length of his sweater causes the strange proportions.

    Although I dislike the articles, the fit and personalised nuances, the colours he wears make it seem as though a part of the streetscape has come alive. That has to be admired.

    ..i think his look in the eyes is kinda nice – but i can image him really good in a white tshirt and very used jeans..i somehow do not like this style..too much of used brown!

    His look reminds me of the Syrian peasants walking down the city streets of Aleppo in Syria.

    This picture calls to my mind a conversation between my brother and I once in Munich Airport summer of 2009 looking at a French store mannequins and speaking about my trip to France. He looked at me and said, "Well, don't go all French and come back wearing those peasant-style baggy pants declaring it to be fashionable!"

    It wouldn't be fair to agree with him now looking at the picture, but it's funny how there's this comic truth I find in his words from this picture of a Young Parisian. I cannot help but think of it more like a comic relief.

    There's no air of chic about him, but his confidence altogether in going out in the streets looking like that inspires this sense of individuality.

    Thanks for sharing!

    These colors are so Paris – it is city-camouflage! I like the combo of practicality (or comfort) and poetic sensuality as showcased in the details, particularly the patterns of scarf, sweater and trousers. Also, the corners of that linen bag and then the points of the shoes.

  46. Diana

    The proportion is awful. Looks like Toulouse-Lautrec.
    The idea is not bad, though (except the socks).

    Oh, oh, oh! Beautiful! Stunning! Could I please have this entire outfit?

    The trousers, the sweater, the socks & shoes, the bag, the scarf… It's too beautiful.

    The colours and materials are simply wonderful.

    I'm assuming he is about to get onto a bicycle or just got off of one and has been shopping. We must not be too quick to judge. I like his look and he is quite handsome. Very nice use of color and texture. Time for a pint?

    thanks guys… just a little extra info :

    SHOES : gram (swedish)

    SOCKS : cheap old ones

    TROUSERS : 'edito kasper harup-hansen' ( my own label . … and yes I do them in women sizes as well)

    SWEATER : one I nicked from my dad, he's been using it for outdoorr work and working on cars and stuff for 15-20 years..

    JACKET : one I got from my ex-girlfriends dad (he used to use it in the danish army)

    SCARF : my good friend 'rene gurskov' made it for me

    BAGS : canvas/leather bag 'edito kasper harup-hansen' ( my own label . only available in my copenhagen shop or thru the website.. sorry
    +brown 'muji-paper thingy'….

    but yeah something funny is going on with the proportions… but isn't that the funny thing about fashion…. playing around !! ;)

    Once again, fashion following necessity. Pants are tucked into socks so they don't get caught in the chains when riding a bicycle. Amazing how a form of art follows a constantly changing collection of necessary necessities! Bravo humanity!

    The colors and textures are well done but the look is not balanced. His top and bottom are disproportionate…he has broad shoulders that end in a point at his feet. The look would have worked better had he kept the pants out of the socks (yikes!) and worn heftier shoes – in my humble opinion ;)

    I've been seeing this style everywhere on men. Tucking in their jeans or pants in their socks–some men can pull it off…

    Hardly amazing. The vast majority of people in the world either cannot afford food let alone designer threads or can afford to look presentable but lack the drive, care and respect for others.

    It's grim out there.

    lovely guy, smart choices, but the "pants-in-socks" has got to go.

    not a good look at all!

    Looks like he tied the scarf carefully to meet the pattern of the sweater– very nice.
    I like strange intentional proportions! What about Coco Chanel???!

    I want to learn to tie a scarf that way.

    agreed that the rest of him is quite the stylish rake. -Jg.

    The scarf is unique. But the rest of the outfit is awful. The oversized sweater and coat, and tucked in pants with shoes like that should never be worn…

  81. merebuff

    February 27, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    don't love this one. It makes him look incredibly disproportioned (is that even a word) and short. I guess I'm a fan of lengthening the leg and not the torso.

    I just love this look. Probably because this is exactly the way I dress (not purposely ;) to impress – especially in the fall.. it's really comfy, you drown in your clothes and it is something else.
    Living in Vienna I do see some quite bold fashion choices, but a look like this one stands out!
