On the Street….Sartorialist Mix, Paris

I love this mix of old-school Italian (pants and shoes) and a Number 9 coat. To me this conceptually is such a cool mix. Imagine Dries with Kiton, Jil paired with Boglioli, or Lanvin and Borrelli.

    perfect pant width to contrast the draping, eccentric, yet beautifully muted coat

    ah, the ubiquituous brown suede shoe. after reading your opinion that a brown suede oxford is a must have, I convinced my husband to purchase brown suede boots just like this.

    I love the plaid, and how the cut, fit, accessories, and colors give him edge in what could be considered otherwise old-school.

    love the patterns and colors.. but doesnt the jacket seem like a very feminine cut? It almost seems like it is a womens coat!

    What is a “Number 9 coat”?

    So nice to see some colour this season! The only facet I’d personally change would be the scarf.

    I think I had a coat like this in the sixth grade. And I’m a girl.

    Number (N)ine is a clothing company from Japan. I’ve seen that coat up close (work in retail) and I must say that it looks 100 times better on him than anyone else I’ve seen with it.

    Number (N)ine is perfect – every detail, every occasion. I am salivating while I type.

    I like the fabric of the coat, but the fit could use some tweaking. The belted torso comes off as bit feminine in this case. Suede shoes look great.

    it looks like a 1970s women’s coat.

    What exactly is wrong with looking feminine? I think the the shape of the coat is what makes this outfit so impressive.

    I’m not much of a fashionista but your blog is addictive, and the mood is playful, open minded and almost entirely positive. This may be the only troll-free place in cyberspace. Thanks for taking me on a visual vacation daily <3
