    That lace detail is unbelievably charming. Love the ring too!

    Xoxo! Cory

    He totally rocks the sweater and what a beautiful ring!

    Sorry, but that’s a girl’s sweater. Too bad, he’s a good looking young man.

      Women often look good while wearing men’s clothes… I don’t see why the contrary couldn’t be true! I think this lovely young man styled the sweater nicely ;)

      Why on earth is it “too bad”? He looks beautiful in it. And he’s helping to shake up outdated, restrictive gender norms to boot.

        No , women can wear menswear , as unfair as it might be, it is a look. A man in a girls sweater is just a man in a girls sweater.

          I’m perfectly straight and I think he looks just fine, he really makes it work.
          And I applaud Scott for shooting and posting something that most of us male photographers on the FW circuit probably wouldn’t.
          Real talk.

          I agree with Diane…this is a man in a woman’s sweater..

            How funny! It’s just a sweater with a low key bit of lace. But so provocative for some eh… I think it suits him wonderfully – romantic, artistic, sensitive, gothic. It fits his masculinity perfectly, expressing so much more than our modern-day fad for a male uniform – being a man after 1800 has been a monumental bore in historic sartorial contexts. All things pass; I hope this kind dressing means the tide is finally turning again…

            Oh, I don’t know about that… Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, Paul Newman, George Clooney, Sam Shepherd, and Kanye West to name a few haven’t appeared to be such monumental bores. Contrarianism isn’t necessarily always fashionable.

            Westcoast: I said in historical sartorial contexts… A stroll around any major non-modern art gallery will tell you that. If I were a man today I would cross-dress, just out of sheer sartorial frustration at the contemporary male uniform. Of course there are stella personalities that shine through, but limitations for male dress in modernity (by which I mean since the 1800s)have been unprecedented – of course there are Stella personalities that shine through. That’s my point.

            Oh and, yes, I agree, rebellion for its own sale is not style. Beau Brummel was totally over-rated, to me. A fashion bore, in fact, who sowed the seed of two centuries of male clones… And all for a bit of PR.

            Oh and I meant to say. Errm, personally, I do find Clooney’s style boring, and Sam Shepard’s. In fact, the only individual who really stands out for me in your list is Cary Grant, again, his personality shone like a beacon. Some people don’t need much range in their sartorial expression to do that. Kate Moss also has that quality.

            I prefer Bowie, Christopher Lee,, Robert Redford. For me they navigate modern masculinity with finesse and – often – wonderful flamboyance. And they do it inspite of the trend for austerity we’ve witnessed in menswear over the past 200 years. Designers such as Christopher Shannon are breaking this kind of ground in menswear, finding a new language for masculinity, one that allows a greater range of expression.

          Diane, I agree with you, leave menswear to men and women, leave women’s wear to women. No guy should ever wear a woman’s sweater.

    Love the ring– designer, Michael Raymond creates double finger rings.
    My favorite is a crystal growing out of the ring–you’ve got to see it to believe it!

    What makes it a girl’s sweater. People rave about females wearing ‘men’s’ clothes on this site. Is that any different?

    • Diane

      September 28, 2013 at 5:03 pm

      Yes, it is different.

        what a sexist rant this has become…wake up and smell fashion!

          It’s verry to call someone ‘a sexist’ just because he disagrees with you. I too am not a fan of man wearing female clothes. What is a purpose of such ‘pushing the boundaries’? Liberty? If it is liberty, then I’d say that for the idea of liberty, boundaries are essential. Self-expression? Then why wouldn’t Diane be allowed to express her opinion?

          We are smelling the fashion – some of us just see it differently than you. For some, defined roles are still recognized. When one steps out of one of those roles, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Fashion is all about differing perceptions. Some of us don’t believe in “everything goes.”

    I’m not usually a fan of Mewelry (man jewelry), but he pulls that ring off. My Chapeaux off to you. Well, done monsieur!

    The sweater has elements perceived as feminine (a perception influenced by the gender norms une chatte grise so justly decries) draped over a man’s physique, creating a cognitive dissonance which some find agreeable and others discomfiting.

    Such a strong and committed look…and such a strong face to go with it – love the combo of fashion and attitude.
