    The tailored wide leg was always where it was at! From Marithé + François Girbaud to the myriad of billowy and bell bottomed designs that swept us all through the 70's. This pictures a whole new kind of groovy. New lines and a whole new cool.

    Amazing! This guys has soooo much style. Men should be more brave about what they wear, because "different" can look brilliant when it's done right!

    wide leg trousers are a favorite of mine, but I like to see it balanced with a more fitted top. Interesting looks none the less. I wonder who he is?

    There is something about the first shot that is striking (though I'm not a fan of the silhouette). I find the outfit, esp the pants, in the second image rather unflattering

    Wow! Who is this young man? Love the pants in the first photo and his coat in the second photo. Interesting shape: the cut of the trousers seem to elongate his figure. Dont like his hair.

    I hate cigarettes, but i loved both pictures! He has a great style! I feel sorry for guys sometimes, they dont have too many choices like we girls have, but if they have a cool personality and dare to take chances they can end up having a nice and stylish wardrobe.

    These looks are unreal. I am a huge fan of elephant pants-time to get ride of the tights! He proves they can be rocked equally by both men and women…makes me want fall to come so I can bring out the pants again.

    Prerequisite for wide-legged silhouette: Tallness. Thinness.

    Otherwise they look like elephant legs.

    The grey pants are actually from that old Dior collection with the fire on the runway. Super thick wool and a very extreme wide leg but i guess they look better from the side.

    And yes, i smoke like a chimney it's embarassing

    The pants in the first picture are so interesting. They look to be like a "paper bag" waist, with attached sash. I'd love to know who the designer is…?

    I'm so sick of the boring smoking comments. We're not children, we don't need the moral police saying "it's not ok to smoke!" just in case we wer in any doubt. Smoking looks sexy, like it or not. Save your preaching for church.


    April 13, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Generally I do like this silhouette. Reminds me old sailor’s uniform. But the second photo, the one with fur jacket, I find the silhouette (not the concept, just shape) very feminine. Don't you think?

    I am very curious about this character. He has invested a lot of thought and money into creating a look that does not flatter his figure his body shape. Why?

    Both of these shots are interesting, and I believe they probably exemplify the subjects' personality more than we know. I'd be willing to bet that neither one of these guys woke up that morning and thought, "What should I wear today to look cool?" They just "got dressed."

    I also find it somewhat amusing when the comments speculate about the branding of the clothes (Dior?). I bet if we could look at the tag, we wouldn't see a name we recognize.

    And perhaps I'm a style prude, but the first thing I thought when I looked at the second photo was "the necklace ruins it."

    I'm using pants like these since last summer, here in Brazil. But mine are made of linen. I thought I was the only one that liked these silhouette for man. It's nice to see other guys using. I need one for the winter too! :)

    very much a 90's feel to the entire look..from the bi-level hair to the super wide trousers.

    There's something very comic book -like in both outfits: Mickey Mouse shoes in the first picture and I believe I've seen that fur coat, only longer, in a Disney comic from the 30's as well. And he's wearing both with a medieval haircut. Interesting!

    He's got serious style. Love the way he addresses his body type–guys are generally "expected" or "supposed to" have broad shoulders & be "V" shaped, but he turns his narrowness into a cool, stylized, striking from by reversing the expected. Nicely done!

    I think these looks totally rock. I love the wide legged pants on him, he's very tall and thin. Otherwise he'd look like a beanpole. I also love the layers, I mean, he can pull it off, right?

    Very interesting trousers. The cinch tie wide-legged style is actually common among the South East Asian males. I have Balinese and Malaysian trousers (in traditional print) designed like that!

    he is obviously loving his wide legged pants. He would have looked lovely in skinnies too with his lanky frame. What strikes me most is his devil-may-care air about him. Love an attitude. :) Great shots of the bloke.

    Thanks for the lovely pictures Scott. I hated the shows in January. It was too cold to wear what I wanted and I suck at the 7 day suitcase wardrobe. So at least I have a golden snapshop of a miserable moment.

    Joel, I think you look brilliant and keep on doing what you want to. I can see from the first shot that no-one around you looks remotely dressed like you. They are very regular even the green pants. You give me inspiration for taking a stand, fighting the dullness and making great lines with clothing. Red and blue are great. I love the black jacket. It's hard for me to tell if it is women's or men's but it's really beside the point. A great jacket is a great jacket.
    Did you see the recent pic on this blog of the gent with icecream? You'd look pretty cool holding one of those also!
