    Now that’s the way to tie a scarf!

    Love the contrast of the cardigan’s volume and the skinny body – everything looks right. Very tough to duplicate if you’re not skinny though!

    I love librarty style on any man young or old who can pull it off. He does.

    I have a cardigan almost identical to that, but I’ll be damned if it looks that good on me. I love the scarf. I like the color of the shoes, too, but I don’t really know how I feel about the shape. Are they moccasins or just folded-down, suede boots?

    It would have looked sloppy, if it were not for the scarf that says “this is all deliberate”.

    he looks fantastic. big sweater over straight pant. love the moccasins and the scarf to finish it off. reminds me i need to get my moccasins out and wear those babies. got them years ago as house shoes on a reservation in arizona. glad they are in now. but, the trick is pulling them off like this guy has.

    i love how the buttons or fastenings or whatever they may be are invisible on the shirt… and it seems that the cardigan was actually made for someone his size– the sleeves fit!

    He looks like an interesting person.

    it’s the hair that does it
    and the moccassins too

    makes you want him in your circle of friends

    Smashing combinations- love the clothes, the hair and the photograph. Every item here is pretty crucial to the look but I particularly like the scarf- the effect of the scarf. Nicely done.

    Love this oversized cardi – but only on him (tall, slim and a bit of Orlando Bloom, but blonder)
    If my husband had such a cardigan, I would wear this in the evening, on the couch, warm comfy and with a little bit of sexiness underneath…:-p

    I love the shoes, which appear to be some sort of mocs, and the hair, and the scarf. However, I think this look has two problems:

    1) A Cardigan over a jacket?! I think this would be equally striking, if not more so, with something more appropriate such as a well fitted button down.

    2) To truly play the cartoonish size of the cardigan off the skinny frame that everyone keeps mentioning, the pants should be slightly more fitted.

    The tortoise shape cardigan of the cardigan with beautiful buttons is lovely. I don’t know how I feel about the shirt, but the scarf, shoes, and jeans are quite nice.

    Somehow this look works overall, even though the individual pieces aren’t amazing. It’s interesthing how he’s put the over-sized cardigan over what looks like a grey, light bomber jacket..

    Everything looks great, but the cardigan looks just a bit off.

    Excellent package all the way around! The scarf is the bomb! And the dude’s hair adds great verticality.

    Oh dear, I’m afraid the cardigan is haram. It hangs in just-been-washed, formless way. Without his structured hair and well-tied scarf, he would look sloppy. I must say, I do love the gold buttons though.

    Defining the waist under the long cardigan keeps the proportion right.The French have an innate sense of style.
