    He looks so sad and the outfit doesn’t help his situation . I guess the extremely rainy summer in London is getting to everyone .

    Sorry, nothing appealing about this look. It’s got “self-conscious” written all over it. But kudos for resisting the urge to wear striped socks with it.

      I’m curious–how so? I can’t read the look on his face, but I think the outfit shows some confidence.

        I think it’s safe to say that by self-conscious the above post meant something along the lines of conscious of the fact that he was putting together a “fashiony,” or “daring” outfit, rather than having an effortless style. In other words: trying too hard.

      I think he’s very attractive in this outfit;And what’s wrong with his demeanor or looking “self-conscious”?! It shows a kind of vulnerability which can be very endearing to some people. sweet

    Those shape of the trousers are a definite new shape that offers loads of interesting new perspectives on an outfit. Approved!

    Nice plaid bag. The stripes in his shirt match complement the stripes in the umbrella. I love how this photograph is taken, with the lights popping in the background.

        Why is this scary? I think he is cute, and I like the layers with the stripes, and the bag is great, so are the sneakers.


    August 2, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    I like his shoes!!! nice outfit!!

    Here are those pants again ! I understand that guys want “comfort” and space to breathe but, this style is not flattering.
    Too bad, because I like the rest of the outfit, especially the tartan bag and the umbrella.

  19. Andrew89

    August 2, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    I just don’t understand why some fashionistas try to completely screw up proportion (obviously he knows what he’s doing). How contrived. Maybe he’s bored with clothing that looks good.

    Me gusta la gente que innova, que se sale de la norma, que mezcla estilos hasta hacerlos suyos. Pero ¿realmente este chico viste asi a diario?. Lo siento, pero me parece que ha intentado llevar la excentricidad hasta un limite que llega a ser ridiculo. Lo único que salvaria son las deportivas, que son de lo más normal asi que si quiere llamar “más”la atención deberia haber elegido otro calzado…

    I think this may very well be the height of “effortless”. His expression is very stoic, though he sees almost content with himself… and his outfit of choice.

    So cool, so typical London style

    • lucia

      August 4, 2012 at 6:34 am

      I agree, really cool, really London. Its only in London people get away with stuff that would loke horrible on any other person. They always talk about the French girls and their style. Its should be The London people. I think French/Parisian women look either boring, or if they are a bit older and high class they are of course beautiful and classic, but classic can be really BORING! A London lady is NEVER boring. Can be a bit shabby bohemian, but that is far better than being boring. In London I always se spectacular outfits, but Paris mostly same kind of dressing on everyone, OR really expensive designer clothes. I think this guys looks very cool!

      What kind of New Balance are these?

  30. frane

    August 2, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Deliberate or accident?
    I think it works as a whole, but I’m not sure whether it was all contrived or whether he threw whatever he felt comfortable on that morning, just grabbing necessary accessories.
    It’s the rings that make me think there might have been some conscious effort……?

    • Lynn

      August 3, 2012 at 5:42 am

      My thoughts exactly. I can’t tell if he’s a fashionista or just rolled out of bed.

    I guess you are right about the new shape of the trouser. Not sure if I like it on men, but this fellow looks cute. He looks oh so comfy.

  33. lofi

    August 2, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    C’mon, there are many variations of such outfit around the world, in almost every mundane corner. Just b’cause he is in London, in some specific neighbor that this outfit makes him seemingly outstanding?

  34. [email protected]

    August 2, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Interesting play on proportion and mix of two different stripes with the plaid bag. At first glance, I thought his expression was sad, but on second look I’d say it’s more like bored.


  35. Andre

    August 3, 2012 at 12:50 am

    This represents true effortless style.
    He’s just good like that.
    He screams fashion.

    This is the same type of pants I previously described as pajama-like and something my American tourist visiting warm foreign countries would wear. I repeat many of the sentiments here that it looks awful, and should NOT, NOT be the things to come.

    I guess Scot found it fun to picture someone in a bored day, when going to the groceries store is the closest you can get to “out and having fun”…
    I often get dressed like that… when I’m at home and sick, ont wishing to see a single living soul.

    cheers to all

  44. Just another blog junkie

    August 3, 2012 at 6:27 am

    Dear Mr. S,

    I love his rings! How delicate. They are so lovely in contrast to the industrial element of this outfit; plastic bag, umbrella, sneaks and loose fitting clothing for an easy stroll in the city. I think I would like to run into people in that outfit, I think there is something classic about…maybe it is the new classic…or maybe i just live in a small town and do not see people who dress like this….thanks for sharing so inspiring.

    Idk if this is his natural look or if he is trying hard, but either way it doesn’t work well imo. He look like a bum.

    August 3, 2012 at 9:23 am

    Just a boy. I can’t figure out why he is making an appearance on this site. I am also puzzled by the “trying too hard” comments as it looks as if he didn’t try at all–just picked up the stuff lying about the flat.

    Perhaps there are subtle fashion clues I am not picking up. My son comes over in what looks to me like sneakers, jeans and a t-shirt, exactly like last week. But he explains that the jeans and sneakers are special something, and the t-shirt too.

    He looks so typically English, his face and his hair, not to mention the umbrella and tartan bag.

    August 3, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    Hmmm… not a fan. I’m all for the “relaxed” or “slouchy” look, but it sorta looks like he just rolled out of bed and hit the street. And not in a good way. :/ This is on the wrong side of “casual.” But, to each their own. Hope he’s not going to work in an office like that though…
