On the Street……Sharp Cut Coat, NYC

When the temps drop below 70 I start looking for my scarf. However, this young man looks so chic with his shirt and tie sans scarf.

    Oddly enough, I’m more interested in his bag! Gorgeous coat though.

    he looks kind of beatle-esque. the slim pants, skinny tie, mop top. yup, Paul McCartney circa 1964. I like it.

    A great example of a perfectly fitted coat! I am not convinced he can fit a jacket under it but if he can, so much the better. The bag also looks quite interesting and definitely separates him from the crowd.

    The coat is a little short in my opinion….

    he probably walked around ‘sans scarf’ because his fabulous outfit, completed with a tie.

    A scarf would make this man…’just one of the guys in NYC’.

    Nice shot.

    Do you happen to know the brand of the bag? Perhaps it’s vintage…but I don’t think this type of man is buying any vintage stuff. :P

    He does look perfect as is, but the fabulous woman in the pic above (with fabulous scarf) does too. Nice contrast.

    yes. Nice indeed. I do love the bag. I’m always looking for the perfect size bag…this one is nice!

    Am i right that we are talking about 70F which is somewhere aroung 20 degress Celsius?
    Scarf when it is below 20? I can’t wear a jacket at that temperature because it is too hot…

    I think I just fell in love with this man. *Swoon*

    Too bad most men in Portland don’t dress this well.

    And Stylethread, I totally agree with you on the Beatles comment.

    Great tailoring! I wonder what happens when he gets to where he is going. It doesnt look like there is room for a jacket underneath the coat. The bag is Prada, and interestingly enough it looks much better here, being used, that on the shelf at the store.

    What a magnificent outfit! The rigid structure of the body with the slouched leather bag. I wish sharp men like that existed in sydney…or maybe im not looking hard enough on the street!

    That bag is incredible. I love he way it works off the gloves and those boots that look like dressy leather chukkas. Sharp dude. A style very dear to my heart.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I see three colors: navy blue, black, and brown. I love the fact that three colors that some fashionable people will claim can’t go together (or at least two of them can’t go with black), go together so well in this outfit. Nicely done.

    Love this. Is this a three quarter length coat? No way he has a jacket under the coat, but if he’s going to work he can get away with the dress shirt/pants tie without a jacket in this day and age. I want that coat and that bag.

    The bag is Prada, but I should say his ensemble was nicely together..


    February 18, 2009 at 4:16 pm

    Nonchalant perfection. I agree with the above statement that this man clearly pulls of black blue and brown flawlessly despite many “rules” against such pairings.

    The contrast is which is not achieved in color is represented in other aspects of the outfit. As previously stated the slouchy unstructured lines of the bag contrast with the tailored sharp lines of the rest of the ensemble. The material contrasts are also great with the many different levels of “shine,” Leather, Wool, Denim(?), Cotton.

    I like his haircut.

    Navy coat – I love it. The cut is great and as a designer I really love navy! I love also how he works the navy with black and the pops of chocolate on the bag.

    That outfit is a triumph – clean lines, carefully put together without any fussy details setting off wonderfully the predominance of the black with clever use of the midnight blue coat.

    After seeing this pic and falling in love with the bag, I spent several days hunting down the bag online and, with the help of TPF, found out the bag model is VA0749 (Prada, of course).

    Next day I went to my local Prada store, and am now the proud owner of this very bag.
