On The Street……..The Painter

I love the look – he looks like every “Soho Loft” mannequin Ralph Lauren has ever done. To me the entire key is the undersized Barbour jacket, very short on the hip and very slim in the arms. The cuff ,alone, on the pants is good but the leather binding makes the cuff outstanding.

    Is he a painter by trade? Because I can’t imagine anyone dressing as well for that niche as someone who actually defines that niche!

    As a painter myself, I am surprised that people admire this look. I dress this way often, people in my town just think I dress mindlessly, which I, in a sense do. However it is very pragmatic for an artist to have sound boots, ruffled pants and a great jacket.

    LOVE the look!
    Sort of looks like a young, sexy-artist version of Frank Zappa!

    For those that care, this is the Bedale jacket from Barbor. I know because I have one! Only the bedale is cut short.

    It’s either a well thought out outfit, or he’s worn those pants until they have shrunk to that degree..I’m leaning towards the latter.

    I think I saw this guy on the GQ (British) Fashion issue (or something like that) in an article on facial hair. So he must be a model. Any leads?

    The painter, or pretending to be? He is hot, but the look isn’t dirty enough, ripped enough, a little too put together. But maybe that IS the artist in him, not like so many that really don’t care about how they look. (Look at my art! Not me!)

    I’m pretty sure this guy owns Smith & Mills on N.Moore Street – coolest speakeasy in town.

    Seven years after its post I find it. better late etc. So, I take it that Scott’s comment about the jacket being shortened on the hip refers to the man having had it adjusted himself?
    I wish we could see examples of the works of the creative people Scott features. The above comments suggest people think he’s a trade painter, a model, or the owner of a Smith & Mills… The Sartorialist either exercises restraint, is at peace with our curiosity, or simply doesn’t have enough time to write answers! Regarding the comment that the lovely subject doesn’t look messy enough, as an artist myself I can assure you there are times when we haven’t come directly from our work and enjoy clothes and clean clothes, too!
