    This is a new favourite.

    I love the Jacket and the pink sneakers are genius.

    He looks really great…a little like Kenzo Takada!?

    Uniqlo khakis fit nicely, and they’re definitely the cheapest you’ll find.

    Spring and winter together in one outfit! It’s still cold, but seeing here this jacket, scarf and gloves makes me feel tired… Although they aren’t ugly, I’m much more interested in the shoes, pants and bag which are also very inspiring for women.

    Actually, I’m noticing the new trend in men’s bag — no more messenger bags or straps over the shoulder.

    In Japan! You can pick up khakis and other trousers with that cut very easily in Tokyo, where that style is the norm.

    Michael Bastian has chinos like that. I love the mix of the masculine blue scarf with the feminine pink shoes then balanced out with a neutral white bag.

    I’ve ponder that too! I went to a vintage store the other day and saw a few pairs that looked like they would have had a slim fit on me but I was rushed for time :|

    The pink shoes are interesting. I don’t think I’d wear them, but its a refreshing and eye-catching departure from what you’d normally expect to be worn with these colors. Nice shot!

    These aren’t even slim. You want to try:
    Uniqlo Vintage.
    J Crew Classic cut.
    And the best:Barba Napoli.

    Regarding the slim khakis: There are a lot of Swedish brands with slimmer khakis; Acne, J. Lindeberg, H&M etc.

    Good hunt!

    Polo has some slim-cut khakis in very nice fabrics, but the model name eludes me (Bleeker, perhaps?).

    Incotex is another option, as they’re cut quite slim.

    Both of these suggestions may be less casual than what you’re looking for, given the photo you’ve posted.

    You can get slim khakis like that at Uniqlo in NYC. Vintage Chinos is what they are called, I believe. They’re like $40.

    Agree on the cut of the jacket and the way the check matches at most seams. Even though I am not a slim guy, I know Brioni makes slim khakis like that, and also Trillion in Palm Beach cuts their pants slim like that. I loved the briefcase, even though it looks like canvas, the rigidity of it makes it look like leather- anyone knows who makes it? I use a Bonnie Cashin for Coach vintage briefcase for work, but when it wears out I will have to get something else. Jorge from W Palm Beach

    Well, to me the jacket looks like it fits too snugly, and while the individual pieces of this outfit have merit, not much seems to work together. But I do like that the background colors compliment the colors of the scarf, jacket and khakis.

    I have a pair of similar slim khalhis from Diesel from about two years ago. I really like these. The pink sneakers are so quirky yet appear completely natural. But I wish he had unbuttoned the bottom button of the jacket, then he’d look more at ease at the top and less stuffed.

    pink shoes caught me off guard, but they add character and fun! I could see it with oxfords too, but the sneaks just are just enough offbeat-ness…?

    The look is great. I can’t really find any flaw in it. Contrary to what was said about the blazer, I think it is the weakest piece. The silhoutte is great. The cut is good and the length is perfect. It could be just the flap pockets, the size of the plaid, or the 3 buttons. They just make the look a little too busy where as everything else is stark, neutral and simple.

    Acne Spring/summer has a set of ‘pop’ chinos in 3 different fits- slim, reg, and wide. Chinos seem like an epidemic now.

    they also have a lavender version of the Stroll shoes coming out- very sensitive shoe

    Honestly Folks,

    how atractive Uniqlo, ZARA or even H&M sound compared to Helmut Lang, Brioni or Kiton!
    We are talking chinos / khakis and this is an item that lives by how it fits (and i mean the fit, here) the individual not how hip or exclusive the brand may be!

    As Mr. Yves St. Laurent said “We must never confuse elegance with snobbery”

    Think about it!

    About the sportscoat, seams are done well!
    Still it looks a bit tight if u ask me, but this could also come from a sweater worn underneath or from the fact that ist is buttoned where it shouldnt be ;) Maybe it was just cold!

    The bag-is there a more masculine alternative? And im not talking messenger or flight attendent bags.

    Pale pink sneakers add the lill extra touch! Nice!

    And Scott, please confess that you took the pic just for the scarf ;)

    Sart, you should try Bills Khaki’s M3 model…short rise, fitted through the seat, trimmer leg. Have your tailor taper the legs even more to get a nice trim silhouette. Incotex does cut their khakis very slim, but they aren’t worth the $300 bucks you’ll pay at some retailers. They are the same quality as a pair of Corbin or Ballin pant you could find at Saks (both manufacture pants for Saks private label). The selection of different fabrics Bills Khakis offers is very nice as well! Everything from their heavy 10 oz twill to their supper light poplin and chamois cloth…!
