    Now that’s a great paint job and a true conversation piece!

    I think I already have the components of this outfit, except I now need to apply the tri-color paint splotches to match his. This is a good outfit for shopping on Germantown Avenue.

    I bought pants like this. Be prepared for a variety of comments from strangers.

      Why buy pre-painted pants? Get clean painter pants and then use them for what they are intended.

    Maybe he’s an artist? An engineer? For some reason, I like it. I know there’s no “high fashion” in play here, and I think that’s the point. It’s a man, dressed down for his own reasons, and yet I discern purpose, and I’d bet a dollar to a donut that when he is supposed to get presentable he does it very well, indeed. I get the point here, Sart. Thanks.

    i wonder if he’s posing or if the pants are splattered as part of his work. i mean, the top part of his outfit and his hands tell a contrasting story… :)

    I do not like this unless the man actually works with paint. I don’t like the faux working class pretension adopted by so many people I see in NYC, DC, and elsewhere. Be what you really are and make no apologies.

      Here, here, too contrived by half! Would look smart with pristine chinos.

    My college friend Dan grew up in NYC. When he went down to the city to visit art galleries, he put on paint-spattered pants so people would think he was an artist. Love it.

    Mr. Miller, looking great. I still am thankful for the BarkerBlack monk straps with the perforated skull/crossbones. You have a great eye for design and refined timeless style///

      Hi Marie,

      How can you tell the quality by looking? I am not trolling, but would like to get better at this myself. Thanks!

    Maybe he was painting the stools for the Miu Miu show in Paris ;-)

    I like it, even if the pants are probably pre-splattered.

    Yep, I like this very much. (particularly bc he’s not doing the twee/dapper/sock-showing little pants) (from what I can tell) Very natural, like he’s not trying too hard.

    I love it! Everything about it. One of the best parts in my opinion is how loose and comfy the khakis look, not some tight genitalia suffocating pants. Some people forget that originally khakis were entirely utilitarian pants which were adopted post WWII by former serviceman cuz they were of such good quality, and apparently very comfy. They were used while fixes cars, mowing lawns, doing errands, etc. I’m also guessing somewhat a badge of honor as well. Don’t mean to get to wordy, I’m just very much into the history and initial origin of garments. Personally I find it so much more intriguing. Overall I wish khakis were viewed more as how denim is, and it would be lovely if it were produced in the States for not exorbitant amounts of money lol.

    I guess everyone knows who he is but me, however, I still like the pants.
