-the way the scarf is tied
-the traditional jacket
-the plaid pants
-the saving grace and the thing that keeps this from tipping to costumey is the very respectable shoes.

    The plaid trouser put it over the top for me. Too much

    Yes, this is very fine. Great color eye. Clear that to make pants like his work, you’ve got to “blend” them into the costume as a whole.

    And love the umbrella as accessory…..

    I disagree. Sometimes everything is too much. In this case I think it’s the gold trimming on the jacket.

    i love the fact that this gent could just be Europian…you can be sure…
    There’s always some elegance coming from deep inside when Europeans men, dandy or simply dressed over the top, dresses.
    There’s more irony, sense of proportion and in a certain way a sort of casualty.

    A very handsome man with character and flair.

    It takes a lot for me to say that about someone in plaid pants.

    I must say it is inspiring to watch you do what you love in your blog and have major corporations (conde nast) picking up on it and hiring you. Congrats on your success

    I don’t often disagree with your pics, Sart, but this is just terrifying.

    Shoes or no shoes, it’s definitely too costumey for my tastes

    Personally, my biggest issue is the jacket.

    That’s a great umbrella that he’s got. It looks like it could be a Brigg Prince of Wales, with that silver endcap and large silver nameplate. Very respectable, and a great contrast to a pretty fanciful outfit!

    The double monk strap is very elegant and firmly brings the look back to France.

    nice pants but the total is too much . a simple shirt would be enough . less is much much more

    For some reason, he reminds me of the pajama chic so popular among college kids these days. Maybe because his gold-grim-top-plaid-pants combo in fact looks like a pajama?

    what? i think the plaid pants work. i have a feeling this man intentionally wears them slightly too short. but because he knows the rules, he can allow himseslf to break them, or at least stretch them a little. love it

    The outfit is beautifully put together. But, I think that short men should try not to look too “cutesy”.

    The shoes are the "Williams" by the greatest shoemaker ever, John LOBB.

    He looks amazing! I want to meet this guy. He looks excellent. I love a put together outfit with character. if only more men could pull this off. Or even put it together. Excentric, but good. Far better then a blue suit.

    Eep. Did I just misspell eccentric? I’m tired.
