    Taller, thinner, younger Jean Pual Belmondo? Love the cut of his trousers.

    I just love this. He looks picture perfect, crisp. And look at those shoes with black&white striped socks; that is the whole idea of the outfit. I appreciate him for ditching black footwear this day; touch of warm brown makes the picture alive!

    He looks so serious, and then the socks made me laugh!

    My God this man is lovely. But am I alone in thinking his trousers are just too short?

    Are those two zippers on his pants?
    Love the confidence of this young man. And his jacket.

    He’s a good looking fellow. Is he holding his friend’s sweater? The pants and shoes combo are so not Paris. Still, I like what this fashion plate has to offer. Bravo!

    Holy Woodsy Style, Batman! This guy is amazing. The zippers on his pants (does anyone know who makes them?)are for venting to avoid overheating while super heroically active. The socks- what a slyly humorous touch. And the old school boots? Capping it off.

    I love those colors, and I love the bleak surroundings.

    Great shoes.

    I guess you have to wear a fairly long shirt under that jacket. I like a short jacket, but this proportion is just out of balance for me.

    his pants at first seem a little short. therefore, reminiscent of the beer bellied american man in his 40s who continues to wear ten year old dockers. of course here, the legs are cropped and the rest fits well, whereas the aforementioned american invariably displays strained pleats and an unappealing wedgie effect in the rise. unfortunately for this guy, who is otherwise pretty smoking hot (no pun intended), it’s difficult for the american in me to get past the pant length. thanks to sart for another great photo!

    he looks uncomfortable – his stance, outfit – perhaps he doesn’t like his picture taken?

    this is the French guy every American girl dreams of meeting when she’s on study abroad…

    although I do hope he’s wearing those socks ironically

    where does one find boots like that? More so what is the style of the boots called? (not up on all my lingo)

    luv the shoe.

    The bottom half of his outfit does it more for me than the top but overall the proportions are very thought over. Also helps that he’s a model because the clothes just look better on him than most people.

    Love this, I think it is one of the best. I’m surprised at the ease he is able to pull off the pants but I like them – especially the tie at the knees.

    ay. i actually don’t enjoy this outfit very much.
    the jacket is too boxy, and his shoes are more fug than fabulous.
    i do like those little black tassel-like things on the inside of his trousers though. what is that?

    That’s so Thom Browne-esque.
    I’m usually not a big fan of Thom Brown looks, but I like this one.

    bad cut everywhere – jacket too big, pants to tight and too small. really no good.

    i just love the way he is holding the hand in which he has his cigarette. despite his disarmingly handsome face, i am perhaps even more drawn to the position of his hand. it says something about him. it is beautiful.

    hmm, not sure about the length of his jacket. cut too short?

    Pants are actually perfect, for all those thinking they are too short. Not to harp on the T Browne effect, but he does it here without seeming contrived or pretentious-fantastic.

    Looks good but I think having your mobile phone show like that through the pants really makes them look cheap in a way! Takes away from the neat look. Rather keep it in my jacket or somewhere, where it doesn’t show.

    Remind me to hang out in that area next time I’m in Paris.

    This is a French alpha male!! Just try and make fun of his pants. I dare you. Although, the sweater he seems to be holding for someone tells me he’s probably sweet. What a stunner. This is why people go to Paris to find love.

    why are so many guys wearing pale cotton khakis in january?

    as much as i like those pants, i think they should be put away until may, in favor of wool and denim.

    anyone agree, or i am just clinging to the old days on this one?

    i love the socks! the way he played with the length of each garment, the jacket, pants, and sweater, is great (however intentional).

    actually, he is British and the fashion editor of the British version of GQ Style… very sweet guy and has an impecabble dress sense! I really wonder where he got his pants from! any ideas?!?

    Why does everyone love this guy? Is it the clothes or the hot french guy wearing them?

    besides the really cool roll of his jacket collar, his pants look ridiculously short and tight, accenting his spindly legs in the wrong way. Also short jacket with long sweater doesn’t work for me.

    I see a good looking Frenchman dressing up in his shorter American cousin’s J Crew outfit.

    The shoes are cool though, as is his nonchalant and unimpressed facial expression.

    yep that’s the lovely garth spencer. and i’m sure i had a similar if not the same pair of neil barrett trousers about 3/4 years ago that had those zips mid leg – behind the knee to alter the fit. will have to dig them out!

    smoldering!!! wow, that face is raising my bloodpressure. american boys don’t give you that look. he’s got the perfect tossled boyish haircut. and i love that jacket with the collar. this picture captures a little of his breath in the chilly air; he’s like an animal about to engulf you. i surrender!
