    I can’t even tell why, but I loved, loved, loved this look. It’s just… playfull, but without being sarcastic. I’ve never seen this mix so nicely done.

    He’s adorable! Love the way all those fabrics, textures and colours look together – he looks great! And the shoes, the shoes!!

    This guy pulls off a look that’s totally his own.
    Saddle shoes, plaid vest, gold buttoned gray blazer, maroon color tie and the tie clip…
    And the confidence gaze completes the look.

    Excellent. The only thing that’s not working for me is the “yellowish” (?) color of the shirt. But the saddle shoes and the large break are fantastic!

    I’ve been looking for a hat like that for years…

    This is great, especially the saddle shoes with red contrast.

    Would only, maybe, ditch the hat, which–though it looks more “authentic” than most–is still too cliched.

    Amusing combination on the guy.

    BTW, if you are wearing a suit and a baseball cap, it just means you are bald and you’re trying to cover it up.

    Sorry but I’m just not buying this one. He doesn’t seem to be “wearing” the outfit. He has some clothes on but the outfit isn’t coming together for me.

    Yummy. What a strange mix of geek & hotness. I can see by the way he’s looking at me that he wants me.

    love the whole outfit, but the shoes are fantastic!

    oh my gosh! first off, he’s wearing buster browns ( i didn’t even know they had those for adults!), in red nonetheless. his jeans look like the most perfect vintage levis…love his hat and the vest with the blazer. he looks great…like a real life Norman Rockwell character.

    Wow, he represents NY so well. From the facial expression all the way down to the shoes. Nice shot.

    Those shoes really set the outfit off, I think.

    It’s tough for a guy to wear saddle shoes…red ones, mind you. Someone is always going to ask you why you have your golf shoes on. When I wore them (black/whites) back in small town Iowa I got nothing but compliments on them, but now out east I get laughed at.

    he looks wary of you…

    Is it strange that this reminds me of seinfeld…?like something george would have worn when he worked with the Yankees…

    And I mean that in a good way

    I love how the reds (Shoes, Fire Hydrant and Tie) make your eyes dance around the photo. Wonderful shot.

    This kind of matchings does not bring to any place; a pot-pourri that is not inspired by an unifying idea capable of giving a pleasant result. Such suggestions in my opinion should be carefully avoided.

    love it! love the shoes. love the hat. love the short pants. altogether this look is so young.

    hm….there’s something about that cap…he should lose it, because the outfit is awsome…except for that NY cap.

    He’s a genius, NY cap included. I agree with Alessandra: playful w/o being sarcastic. Love it. If I met him, I’d be isntantly smitten. I’d buy him a drink in a heart beat.

    Above all else, this is a wonderful photo. It makes me want to know who this person is; how is it he looks like he could beat me up and/or quote Shakespeare and/or be a rap star.

    i love this guy. the shoes, especially, but also that he’s sort of a compact little guy carrying off such a smart look.

    I’m tired of jeans. They’re an aberration and not particularly handsome. Everybody is wearing jeans with tailored things above the waist. Time to move on (or back whence we came)

    love the photos, the blank whiteness behind brings the outfit and the person (wearing it) out more

    Whether it’s work or play, he’s ready! I especially love the shoes. But tell us Sart, was he peeved at you taking the photo? He just doesn’t look that into it…and doesn’t appear to have stopped walking. What’s the story?

    It is interesting to confirm that people will always have different points of view. I mean, the “love it” or “hate it” kind of thing…
    And it is even more interesting that probably some poeple like the way he looks just because you posted the picture Sart…Maybe they wouldn’t notice a person like that guy walking down the street, but because the pic is here, they think he looks perfect!!! Sart, with great power comes great responsibility…

    Interesting mix: the torso is all grown up and even a little stuffy, and the rest of the outfit has a juvie retro flavor. Like he saw a snapshot of his Dad and granddad in the 50s and cut it in half and switched their legs & heads and made an outfit. He’s also got a little scruffy facial hair contrasting with the clean & innocent cap. Still, I have to love it. I want those shoes.

    Love to hear all the positive comments… kinda strange for New Yorkers to be all complimentary….
    I got linked here because the photo is Mark McNairy,
    the Design Director for the revamp of the J. Press line and a business associate of mine. He always looks great… EXXXCELLENT style Mr. McNairy…keep it up.

    and to the ‘NYC MODELISTA’ (ridiculous title)… Mr McNairy has extra tall hair…he’s not hiding baldness the cap is cool.

    That man reminds me of the 1989 movie “The Dream Team” starring Michael Keaton. Which is about a group of mental patients who go on a field trip to New York.

    What I love is the location, almost directly in front of my barber shop and in my hood. All about location, location, location.

    I saw this pic. and thought “hmmm… this guy looks familiar…” I racked my brain and realized that about 15 years ago, he and his wife Antoinette designed a women’s clothing line called “finis” and I used to go to their apartment (which was also their showroom) to view their new collections each season (I was a fashion market editor at the time)
    Then i saw the comment from the person who id’d him as a colleague at J. Press and realized I was correct. I’m happy to hear he’s still working in fashion. I remember him as a very creative, cool but scruffy-looking guy. Looks like he’s exactly the same (though way more spiffy!)

    To NYC Modelista: It could also just mean you are bald and don’t want to get skin cancer. Also, some quick research shows he has plenty of hair. And I don’t like your tone about bald guys – maybe I’m hypersensitive since I am one – proudly shaving what’s left!

    For everyone who wants the shoes (as do I) they seem to be his brand.

    Hat, vest, shoes — loss of style points for doing all 3 together. He isn’t good looking enough to get away with that much precious nonsense. Two of those things must go.
