At first man this man may look a bit sloppy, but this look is likely deliberate because of the seemingly fine materials his clothing pieces are made of. I like this artful sloppiness, although I do think that the flap on the shorts/pants takes away from an otherwise sleek part of this outfit.
Parisian Grunge? I really don’t know what to make of this. To me there’s a ghostly echo of some of the neatly dressed Parisian guys I saw in Paris when I was there in the late Eighties: Crisply pressed chinos, tailored cotton dress shirts, and, of course, the sweater, draped squarely over the back of the shoulders with the sleeves tied neatly in front…
And here is the post-modern successor, slouching out of the 5th Arrondissement. I have this strong urge to offer him a cup of coffee.
The guy looks sweet. I like layering clothing too ,but am a bit worried that IÂ´ll spoil the clothes .This guy has succeeded well and his clothes look clean and neat.The look seems effortless and thatÂ´s what layering clothing is all about.
that kinda arabic guy has that deep in his background I mean being well wraped. we can feel windy desert around layers are never outgoing. sometimes it gives a chance to express much better when put more on. soft fabrics and even softer colours are up-2-date but that is no surprise, exactly why you picked him up and why he looks so delicate and stylish
What a beautiful young man! So soulful. I love his creative unkemptness. This whole look works for me, because it looks completely effortless, is actually completely and totally functional AND works so beautifully stylistically. Love it to pieces! (pun intended). xoxo, as always, lady
This is beautiful. I love the dreamy expression on his face. This is really dressing to suit one’s personality. Even though I’m female I’ll definitely be taking inspiration from this look. I love layering and where I live (four seasons in one day) it’s necessary. Thank you Mr Sartorialist
That look is just perfect – but only if you bring the Â»just fell out of bedÂ«-look to the table and call constantly pull off that Â»I really donâ€™t careÂ«-face. Very impressive though … too bad I find myself lacking in both prerequisites.
Wow! that’s what I call great layering. I love the shirts and the trouser combination. The sweater on top is maybe a bit too much (for summer days) but I can imagine it being perfect for spring or warm fall days. Great pic Sart!
Bravo! the contrast of texture, warm tones in skinclothes vs the cool shadows/background – this is very Cezanne – almost watercolor like. Then his expression and clothes: inspirational in another way entirely – Your surroundings must agree with you as your recent work is some of the best yet!
I like it! Very cool. And very French, especially the sweater around the shoulders. It must be a French thing. I always see French tourists with sweaters draped around their shoulders. Yesterday I saw two little French boys, maybe 9 or 10 years old, with sweaters thrown around their shoulders.
Some of you have mentioned that he must be “sweltering” in those layers. Sometimes there are heat waves AND cold-breaks – this photo was taken when Paris was unusually cool.
This weekend had dinner on the beach at 5:30 pm and it was cool enough to wear a sweater or sweatshirt (and scarf!) but by the time I got back to the city (8:30pm) it was very warm and humid – weather changes so think it is interesting to show how people layer for cool weather in warm months.
Nothing this meticulously coordinated could fairly be referred to as “sloppy.” The colors, the carefully orchestrated sweater placement, and half-tucked under-layer are all so fabulous that I don’t quite know what to do with myself.
He is as easy and breezy as a “covergirl” and sooo adorable in that trying to look messy to the untrained eye, but those who “get it” will totally catch on–sort of way.
I officially am experiencing my first crush since 5th grade!
