    Wow Sartorialist this is one of my favorite ‘Why I Love this Look’ entries that I have seen. The colour matching is amazing, and even the shine of the jacket works in this looks favor. It gives me an almost fairy-tale like vibe, absolutely beautiful.

    While I like it, it does remind me quite a bit of Johnny Depp’s costuming for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    I hope that green jacket has a Burberry plaid lining. It’s beautiful.

    that stunning saffron color brings the whole thing together.

    That same look is -now-, oddly but brilliantly, being sold at Bebe stores. I’ll take a picture and send you and you will simply realize the brilliance of taking something from recent (but old, in the fashion sense) years and genderizing/compartmentalizing it- Bebe has made these exact same colors in the same leveling into ONE layered, simplistic cropped jacket.

    I find it kinda odd that if this guy was on the street people would stare and wonder…Why? But he’s on a runway and rockin` “Burberry” somehow makes it “HOT!”


    He looks like his “other” shoes were getting worked on and he wore these instead

    I need a jacket like this! Badly!!! The match is great, I'd only throw the gloves for another time.
    I wonder, you didn't mention the grey here. Hey, it's a colour, too :-) I actually love how smart they used it and not some black. I'd dare try a more blue grey (this after I throw the gloves)
    I would actually wear this on the street (but then, I'm a woman)
