On the Street…. Starting the Transition

Mid weight cottons, rich colors, light layers…it is still the dog days of Summer, but transition is right around the corner.

    Noooo! Not to the outfit, but to the transition!

    The only good thing about leaving Summer is all the beautiful layers and scarves.

    Love how he plays with colors. I want to go out and buy socks in every color!

    The red gingham shirt with the chinos and blue sneakers is perfect. The socks set it off.

    One must be careful with bright color gingham, if the check is too small, it will make people dizzy. I think this one is the right size. The front vertical seam on the pants make them look precious when this could be such a simple outfit. Totally agree with a previous post on the colorful socks. The best thing about bright socks? They always go on sale and you can stock up! I am wearing red argyle ones today!!!! Jorge from WPB

    Deja vu: boys walking down the street after school dressed this way.

    But, they were not "flipping the bird" to hold their paper unless angry.

    I live in Georgia. It gets so freaking hot down here, plus the humidity is so bad its hard to breath. I'm ready for the transition.

    To me, best thing about this outfit is the way the khakis and the shoes look together.

    How i love the "trad" look is getting updated.
    Playful yet masculine and authoritative.
    The best thing is each item need not be the exact brand one might see in pictures, but one can substitute with others perhaps less expensive or just slightly different. For example the sneakers here can be, let's say Sperrys, but one can wear Vans just as well.

    On other note, I'm so glad this guy is holding a building plan in his hand instead of a cell phone like most other pictures you see in fashion blogs.

    He looks very common to me. I mean, he is presentable and I like the elements of his outfit separately (particularly the red and white plaid shirt), but there is nothing extraordinary about this look to me. I wish I could see what is so inspiring.

    Great balance of colour; and also the cut of the pants and jacket. I really like the tone on tone.

    Neat looking, but too hot for the summer. Like the checks a lot. And the navy with the forest green. Nice.

    I love transition times of the year! I can't wait to change over my closet, especially since I've seen the new fall fashion issues. He looks right on!

    All the clothes are by Junya Watanabe, including the shoes, which were a limited summer release. They just look like vans but have a gingham insole I think.

    It is a really nice look, unforced, unfussy and suits the wearer.

    Very nice. Perfectly executed. If anyone's noticed, more and more skateboarders are dressing like this.

    nothing wrong with plain, either. i think the the look connotes a casual friendliness, i'm glad to see it here!

    That's a great checkered shirt and I love it paired with the pants. red socks, and blue sneaks. I can already sense the weather beginning to shift slightly.

    Please no matchy socks!

    Perhaps a drabbed out contrasting color would have been more intriguing as a balance to all that super saturated primary color.

    Do love the check.

    Anonymous- the shoes are Vans Era/Authentics

    D.K.- I believe that proper way to word that statement would be, "more people are dressing like skateboarders". Grab any skateboard magazine from 3-4 years ago and you will see the vans/any vulcanized soled shoe with Wayfarer shades, dark, fitted denim and flannel/plaid button downs. Skaters have always been trend setters.

    Normally, I don't care what people do, as long as it doesn't affect me
    seeing someone in a jacket, on a hot summer day irritates me.

    I'm in NYC, and I can't imagine an August day worthy of a jacket. It's not unusual for it to be 80 degrees at 7am in August.
