    Looks sharp! The outfit has a really clean look, but it's still interesting due to the texture of the blazer and tie. And he has the 1 inch of his sleeve cuffs showing as well. The only weird thing are his arms, which are in an awkward position =/ haha.

    lovely play on stripes and patterns. Those pockets are just great, they just add that extra focus on the cut of the jacket.

    A bit drab, but still classic. You cannot go wrong with classic. Nice pant length, along with the chukka boots…correct combination.

    i have these shoes in a darker color- i'm relatively certain they are meant to be women's shoes, but they look far better with his outfit then they could ever look with mine!

    he looks somehow ruffled but refined. it's wonderful.

    He is so quintessentially Korean; I love it. I actually love a lot of Korean style, as I am regularly exposed to it through my many (amazingly stylish) Korean friends.

    This guy looks great. I love the mixed patterns, and I love the boots! His hair is awesome, too.

    I suspect men buy these color shoes to follow the masses. Amsterdam is flooded with them, the color is honestly hideous. (Dark) grey boots with navy/grey/white striped tie would've been perfect. Nice cheeky pose.

    Classic look. His hair makes it look much more casual. But really liking the patterns and textures of his blazer tie and shirt. Mixing and matching at it's best.

    super cute! love the playful mix of textures and colours. double stripe and check, nice touch. peek of eggplant in the cardigan a delightful surprise. the softness and wash of his trousers are a revelation, especially uncuffed [for once]. extra points for "snooty but boyish" pose. great look held together by a single button.

    It does look good, true. Or, as someone said: correct combination. But I'm growing tired of those trousers and shoes. You see them all the time now, at least in the UK. I'd prefer something more adventurous.

    Nice schoolboy look. Surprising that the rather unremarkable desert boots get so many compliments here. Those trousers, on the other hand, make me wonder. They are so narrow at the ankle! Is there a zipper at the back?

    This, to my mind, is casual perfection for a modern man. (It's actually a throwback to the 60s.) It's wonderful, but doesn't look like it's trying too hard so therefore doesn't look so twee.

    My dear husband, who is not as young as this man, dresses like this. However, he doesn't like desert boots. I must just go and get him a pair. The sheer comfort might convince him.

    The stuff in his side jacket pockets needs to come out. Lose the pocket square, or at least something besides white. The jacket would look better if it was a tan/brown base instead of dark gray. This pants are too dark, but nice cut. The boots work–I hope they are leather-soled though. That gum-soled desert boot thing is getting tired for styling, better as weekend knockarounds. Neat guy though.

    Everyone dressed neat in Korea when I was there in 1999, they can't be much different today. The more western the look the better. Lots of dark colors even in the dead of summer. No shortage of dyed hair amongst the young folks. Older ladies and men were always so dignified.

    Sorry, I don't get it. Could someone please enlighten me why everyone seems to run around in jackets that are way to short?
    I can understand it in women, as an attempt to elongate the leg line, but in men?
    Or are we heading back to the times of George Villiers with only a few years between us and tights & codpieces?

    For me – this is one instance where the short length of the pants work well with the height of the desert boots. Perfect. So many times the "high water" look just looks like the wearer is trying too hard. Love this look.

    First of all, I don't understand whoever said this is a "feminine" look in the comments above — So if a guy doesn't wear a blazer that's too big for him (and long as a skirt), and wisely avoids pants that bunch up at the ankles like pajamas, then he's "feminine"? Please grow up.

    If I had seen this photo in black and white and entirely out of context, I would have assumed it was taken in the early 1960s. Very nice mod-inspired outfit and attention to detail (are those working cuffs on his blazer?).

    Perfect pant length to wear with desert boots (which I normally don't like with a tie, but they do work quite well here). Also, great Egon Schiele-like hair.

    Things I'd (ex)change: the vest for a nice tie clip, and the smug stance for a sheepish grin.

    Things are changing these days so fast. It's not about what people are wearing…fashion now is more about how you wear it…this outfit is completely clean and crisp, but the point to notice is he's wearing desert boots along with it…..so its bout how differently things are being shaped…
