Hmm, not sure which is more worrying: your insistence that we men get brown loafers (no, no, no, as Amy Winehouse would say); or the implication that the hem of (normal fit) trousers should be lifted off our shoes and left hanging somewhere above our ankles. Not to put too fine a point on it, this may look okay if you, let us say, “average” height, but a man of around 6′ 3″ (~190 cm) looks as if he lost his glasses while shopping in a secondhand clothes store (although I concede that short drainpipes can look good on the taller man)…
alright…the tapered pants. i’m wondering if this is a typical italian look or something this is a recent phenom. is it something that these gents are having done by their tailor? or can you buy that off the shelf? its quite different from anything we would find in the states.
i like this guy…the cigarette, the smirk. nice shot.
Hm, again with the tiny pants. ‘fraid I don’t like the look when these guys are standing, and in part because all I can think is how squicky they’ll look (and how very uncomfortable they’ll be) as soon as they try to sit down. It’s not a good look.
I think the length of the pants is fine with the loafers-no-socks look. (anonymous 7:39–this is not a suit!) What disturbs me is that everything is too tight, making him look like he just gained 10 kilos.
What a great summer look. he looks great…Ilove the whole outfit… cool for summer….I am sitting at work right now in New York in a fitted butter scotch colored cotton suit , button down and no socks very comfortable …going from work to museum to cocktails/dinner without skipping a beat ..no need to go home and change…yes
I personally love brown and blue, I think it’s one of the best color combos (though I don’t really wear either color), but I just cannot get used to the proportions of this look. But maybe it’s just a matter of time. There’s a reason why we refer to some people as “fashion forward”. I think you can be a very stylish person, but may not necessarily have the foresight to be an early adopter.
I really like this style because he looks like he feels great in it. I also agree with the blogger that suggests that tall men ( 6’3″ +) may look funny in pants that are a wee bit short – although it’s fantastic on a shorter male. I love the confidence with the cigarette in his mouth.
Worrying that this might be thought to be an italian trend. We’re sensitive about suit tailoring and that kind of looks like he’s walked out of the wrong washing machine cycle. He’s great though, love him.
If you worked in an office of boring accountants who couldn’t dress to save their lives, you would be begging for brown loafers.
Brown loafers with tan pants and a blue blazer or brown suedes with gray pants is a most welcome change to the boring and monotonous black shoe. Perhpas if you saw it done properly you would agree that it is visually pleasing. Crocket & Jones makes a great brown suede loafer for their own account and for Ralph Lauren.
