    Ahh, the men who can pull off cropped pants are few and far between. Which is probably a good thing. This guy looks effortless and great.

    Aren't they cute! Not the sort of cute one can be at age 58, but I can still enjoy the fun of it. Enjoy the cropped boy pants while you can if you like them … these, too, will soon ebb away.

    i actually thought off a 1950s american diner when i saw this. the subtle red and white checks, the healthy tan, the almost-coiffed-with-wax hair, and that hint of blue on the woman's scarf in the 2nd pic to round it all off.

    i guess the cigarette fits in with that whole feel, but yeah, not that great to glorify the habit.

    The only fault – and serious – on this this website: show many pictures with people smoking, it gives a bad example, since smoking is one of the worst evils which mankind has accepted as "normal." Currently, there is nothing elegant smoking. It's ugly and stupid.

    Fix this please. Just use the "photoshop", and public health thanks.

    you can tell he knows he looks good. confidence is the best accessory. i'm amused by the requests to not include smokers in your blog as it sets a bad example. if a photo on a blog is all it takes for kids to start smoking, that's a reflection on the parents. i've never been to NYC, but isn't there a stereotype that new yorkers smoke?

    Ah, this look is so wonderful! I love that he chose white pants instead of denim. I think the pants are cropped a little too high, but it doesn't matter. He pulls of this gorgeously sexy 50's look with panache.

    I'm not a smoker and I personally don't approve of it, but suggesting that the Sartorialist excludes photos of people with cigarettes or photoshops them out is pretty ridiculous. I guess we all have our crazy opinions though; for me it's tattoos that ruin a perfectly good photograph.

    I agree – what a sanctimonious lot. And to the person who actually suggested that the cigarette be Photoshopped out of the picture! Shame on you. Like or not, the boy was smoking a cig, and it is the photographer's job to document, not to change reality. And really, if you don't like smoking, just don't.

    (PS, I'm not a smoker. So there.)

    (PPS, the whole "Don't wear white after Labor Day" rule is antiquated and lame. It's the 21st century, people.)

    All that crap aside, HOW CUTE IS HE. I love everything about his outfit, especially all the cuffing and rolling going on.

    All these anti-smoking comments make me feel SICK – ironically!

    Get a life people – showing photos of people smoking isn't glorifying it, it's a fact of life. You don't like smoking? THEN DON'T SMOKE!

    I never have smoked and never will but I don't have anything against looking at photos of people smoking. I have my own will and make up my own mind – pictures of fashionable people smoking do not make me think that "smoking = fashion."

    I'm sorry that most of you might fall into that category.

    Too many freakin' bleeding-heart PC bullies out there – chill out and let everyone live their lives.

    Including this find young man, and Sart.

    I thought we moved beyond the “no white after Labor Day” thing a while ago… I think it’s more about the weight of the fabric relative to the weather than a hard and fast rule anymore… what makes a winter white “winter”? –tho, I do find it hard to break this rule myself. I was chastised this winter for wearing my cream and caramel spectators – Thinking, “Well, who died and left you in charge…?” LOL!
