    What a great-looking guy. Love the way he puts all of it together — rolled pants, terrific shoes, scarf, jacket, chunky watch — but the front of the pants I find odd and distracting. Maybe if that were the back of the pants!

    The closure of the trousers draws the eye, certainly. Terrific look. Well done.

    Are those like fisherman's pants? If they are, then it's a very interesting choice of fabric. He wears the outfit well. The scarf is a nice touch.

    The jacket is beautiful, such a lovely cut.

    An amazing shot as always!

    Those trousers remind me a bit of the Japanese garment hakama, a bifurcated horse riding skirt/trouser worn by samurai. More at how they are attached at the waist. Very interesting shape.

    Great jacket, nice pants. Separately. This is just too busy. A jacket like this should be its own acessory. I'd keep the shoes and the t-shirt and put on a pair of jeans with it. No scarf either.

    Unsure of how I feel about this look, but this gentleman certainly has a unique personal style.

    The trousers are so soft and romantic of style but at the same time very modern and Dior Homme-ish. The structered jacket underlines the modern look, but the scarf gives the whole look a dandy feeling.

    Very Dickensian & Artful Dodger. The trouser pleats focus the eye right on his crotch, or should that be his "Artful Todger"?

    Our eyes are drawn to his wierd crotch. A bit distracting.

    It's the jacket that ruins it for me. The trousers are quirky and the scarf lovely, but the shortish, boxy jacket and those fat lapels just don't work. And I'd love to see what the pants look like un-rolled…

  36. Terry Bell

    December 2, 2009 at 12:01 pm

    If not brave now… when?

    I have this notion that great style allows us to see the individual first and then the clothes. This outfit keeps me away from the individual for far too long. Another example of the frame overpowering the picture.

    No, not at all. Cannot do it. It's like a waiter on his lunch break who had to run out and buy a quick gift.

    personally i think its all too muh… the lapels on the jacket are far too big and they clash with the folds in the trousers… i like what he's tryng to do ..but it's overwhelming…

    the folds of the pants directly over his crotch brings the hint of a renaissance codpiece to my mind. I love it.

      Yeah, it’s all wrong – maybe it’s just wrong all together. The pieces look kind of feminine too… don’t care for it. Pants look a bit silly actually…

    PROS: His face is so kind and so energizing, and his pose is so natural. And the jacket is quite nice– wonder if it's vintage Gaultier???

    CONS: The pants are not very flattering: Those pleats are terrible, and draping over the wrong area (or maybe that's the idea?); would be better on a woman… the huge cuffs are very 80s and best left there.

    On any given occasion, he should wear either the pants or the jacket. Together it's too much. I like the scarf.

    His face does not translate to his outfit; it all doesn't fit. I think he looks awkward and the indivudual pieces don't help him either.
