On the Street….Loose Cardigans, Paris

I saw this guy in Paris outside Colette.  He made me think that maybe I should try wearing my cardigan a little looser and open, as opposed to always so buttoned-up.

The length on his cardigan is also perfect; it shows just a slice of shirt.

    Loose cardigans are a staple of French menswear. Paired with a shirt or just a t-shirt they always do the trick!

    After looking at people today, I think I like too long sleeves. Yes, I know most men seem to like slightly short fit with the shirt showing. But it somehow looks too tidy. I saw a guy with a way oversized sweater, so it covered a lot of his hands today, and I couldn’t help but notice how much more youthful and sexy it was. Kind of like a little kid in a way, but nice. So the looseness is good!

    I have a cardigan that’s a little looser but I don’t wear it as often as the others in my closet. I’m not super duper keen on how it makes me look being 5’7” and all. I’m trying to stay lean looking! Haha

    I really love how passionate you are about details!

    Sometimes it’s the whole setup of a look and sometimes it really are just those little things that make an impact on a look that at first sight might seem not too extraordinary…..

    and also agree with the sleeve lenght commentary from Martine…

    Love the entire look… I’m especially in love with the jeans and boots! So classically rebellious!

    I like this! I feel it is also a bit narcissistic saying this though, because this man is basically a male version of how I dress: short boots, dark straight-leg jeans, and a cardi. I also used to stick to more form-fitting cardigans, but looser ones are so much comfier, and easier to wear long sleeves under for cold days!

    What an amazing cardigan!
    the cuff on the pants is a little too short for me though!

    I love a man in a cardigan at any age. But what happen to those two wonderful photos of our favorite female photographer that were up a few moments ago?

    i hate buttoned cardigans! my brother wears them and i always shout at him, i think people think cardigans can be used as a type of waistcoat and i disagree with this, if i ever wear a cardigan its always unbuttoned :)

    I highly dislike fitted cardigans. I tend to buy them a size up or fitted baggy. I like things to look refined, but still casual, which makes things look effortless.

    hahha im seeing a trend here in the backs of mens shirts…

    Slice of shirt, slice of sock, slice of skin. I see a deliberate theme here.

    I find very few things sexier than a man in a cardigan. End of story.

    yes, thank you! the whole look – not skin-tight- it’s about time and i hope that more of this happens on the streets. he’s got a good look, stylish and contemporary without looking like he’s rocking tights and a sweater that was accidentally put in the dryer. bravo!

    I tend not to button up my cardigan because I feel crushed when I do it, even though they’re not tight on me. And I don’t like to hide the dress/shirt I wear underneath. I wonder if that guy would mind..^^

    I love the way he adjusted his jeans! Looks so effortless stylish!

    You can only see a glimpse of his socks, but i think em make the whole outfit.

    I like to play with lenghts as well… and those few “white centimeters” are everything but casual. :)

    Frankly. I have no idea why everyone likes this.
    I don’t like it in the least. sorry.

    It looks sloppy and unkempt.

    I haven’t a clue why everyone likes this?
    It looks slipshod and messy.

    Just my opinion. brutal.

    Love the photo, very storytelling, the movement is perfect and just the right amount of info, could be a lovely litho also.

    I’m enamored of the hint of skin peeking between his denim cuff and sock.

    The jeans and converse are a perfect match!

    I love how this takes the jeans and t-shirt combo somewhere less American with a simple cuff of the leg and that wonderful deep blue cardigan.

    that’s a look i wore in the late ’80s / early 90′s downtown at nyu. still love it. wonder what the 40′s equivalent to that is now?

    This is exactly what I look like from behind. It’s kind of trippy, to be honest. Sometimes I start to show concern for my style when I constantly wear oversized cardigans but I’m pleased to see it has a Parisian undertone. Love it.

    The slice of white shirt is the most important part of any casual outfit in my view ! It always bugs me when i look down to see my t-shirt has disappeared under my jumper ! !
