    You know, I generally try to be very open minded and non-judgemental when it comes to personal style. I usually only post positive comments, but come on. This is a pretty silly look. The emperor has weird clothes on guys.

    those shoes just aren’t working. or should i say they look like they have worked too hard – they’re a bit busted in comparison to the nuance of the pieces in the outfit.

    I love all the different quilted textures and layering and the white trousers peaking out from underneath brightens it all up, just enough.

    Incredible concept, Knee length quilting? Love the colourway of the entire outfit. Also; I think its quite smart that the knit pattern of the oversize cardigan mates the quilting beneath it (is that a quilted skirt???)

    An unusual combination of texture.
    A very interesting outfit.

    Even though I sometimes don’t rate the outfits, I really like to see The Sartorialist’s man shots. But each time, I’m surprised at what big feet we men have!

    Well, well, possibly not. This is definitely too complicated. And not very elegant, to be honest.

    Love the colors and the white pants, but the overdone layering isn’t working for me.

    i give him kudos for wearing what he likes, but this makes me think of mugatu’s “hobo-chic” from zoolander.

    Intriguing! I love this look. I am so pleased that you have been posting photos with such unusual layering. It makes the imagination soar.

    Awesome. For those not so enthusiastic – you have to be happy when someone has clearly put so much thought and consideration into the clothes they have have chosen to wear – even if it’s not to your taste. Celebrate innovation and individuality!

    Seems like a cold-weather version of Mr. Skelton’s look in the photo below. (I like the way he winterized the madras jacket by layering with a looong-sleeved sweater.)

    March 13, 2012 at 1:52 am

    Haha! I remember him, he is the guy who wore skirt last time.
    People either love him or hate him.

    This look, maybe its too much….looks warm though!

    Love this look! So interesting and complex. I look and I want to see more and know more about it. Thanks to those that post the details. Where things come from. Who someone is. It makes the exploration that much more attainable.

    I know he worked the colors maroon, blue/black and sage green from head to toe, BUT Sartorialist…Did this man put on that costume, and just wait for you to come by so he could be on your site. Where are the Fashion Police when you need them?

    People . . . Please!
    I can’t believe the negative comments about this! Great colors and textures used in a very creative way. Of course most of us wouldn’t wear this, but don’t you want to be exposed to different, new ideas? It certainly wouldn’t be a very interesting world if everyone dressed just like us!

    I just can’t get into the over-layering and man-skirt look…

    no offence, but I think he is ridiculous in those clothes :)

    Is he wearing an Engineered Garments for women skirt? If so, I almost bought it for myself.

    The dark plaids with the white is so chic.

    Textures. textures. textures! I love the play of feel here. The textures really pull the outfit together. The knit, quilt, and cotton.

    I find the shoes to be too clunky for the grace of this look. A suede buck in a navy at least wouldn’t be so jarring. I think a cool boot would also have matched the cool weather look even better. I don’t get the white underneath. It doesn’t fit for me. Maroon, even another plaid, or something in a bright like red would have worked better to me.

    Amazing use of layering.

  60. Anthony Maitoza

    March 14, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    This look is incredibly inventive, is it distinctly modern? I argue in the confusion of such a drastic layering. It feels like Engineered Garments meets Mongolia’s Genghis Khan, the quilting of a soldier’s under armor. Pattern, texture, length and tone. I don’t understand how all of those layers garner the next, but I don’t want to know. The ingenuity is fascinating. He appears as a great nomad.

    The shearling helmet makes me thing of a 21st century steppe nomad, emerging from his concrete urban yurt. I think he needs some more shearling in there somewhere to balance out the quilting. Shearling trousers perhaps.

    And he should carry a recurved bow, to establish his barbarian credentials.

    I really love all the future fabrics. this kid is looking forward and that is great, super inspiring to see this on the streets..but (and there is a but).. i think there is definitely a more flattering way to do this.

    Too runway; no practical application.
