    this look is very A.P.C….a little bit boring (yes) but very understated & stylish. je l'adore.

    the proportions are working, everything seems to fit him just right & the jacket is not too slim but not to baggy, just perfect!

    btw, the young man has a rough masculine vibe going on…he looks like a much cooler & hotter version of the gardener that comes to trim the hedges of my building every other thursday…

    Amazing how when one is comfortable in their skin/outer layer their inner self shows through. Only if you captured it with your photo of course! He just looks so effortlessly relaxed, especially in the eyes and the nice crisp blue collar is a sure sign winter is on it's way! (Impeccably dressed of course as all winters are!)

    Jacket could be a bit more understated–the brown is a bit much.

    The sweater could be plainer–too much color going on–and I'd like to see a more generic collar under it.

    The jeans should be more generic looking.

    Haircut is much too wild. Needs to be cut shorter.

    i don't understand the criticisms. some of the most important elements of fashion such as silhouette, fit, and colour coordination are spot on here. i bet if a woman dressed like this exactly, everyone would be all over it because "oooh she's so androgynous, how daring!" subtlety has a place in style too, let's not be snobby about what's "boring" or what's "daring".

    For some reason, this looks kind of boring, but maybe because he looks kind of bored himself.

    The jacket seems random, so I'd be curious to see what kind of shoes this gentleman is wearing.

    Jesus Christ. Why such harsh criticism? Dude probably put this on go meet someone for lunch. It's not like he's trying to change the world one pair of jeans at a time.

    The hair's nice. You don't necessarily have to be ultra-manicured to look good.

    Most likely the jeans are either McQueen or APC. They're casual but you can dress them up a bit, like here.

    hahaha I love the array of comments so far.

    Let's get one thing clear. The good Lord put us on this earth using unique molds. If I've learned one thing it's that for every man, regardless of how handsome, there will always be women to whom said man is candy unto the eyes. I am no judge of handsome men but by God I'm glad a few find him handsome 'cause then there's hope for an ugly bastard such as I.

    Oh, the clothes… I would have worn that lovely jacket with white linen slacks. Pleated. Pale blue shirt, maybe. Rolex. Ruby ring. Cigar. Tan monk straps. The world is my oyster.

    ok so alessandra is amazing but this guy is boring? i agree alessandra looks great but if you look at that second photo of hers below, she is also wearing a light blue dress shirt underneath a blue sweater and jeans. the only style difference is that she's got a big belt on and he's got a brown leather jacket.

    but the real difference is that she's a woman and he's a man. and that's why so many people are criticizing him. she dresses like a man and she's applauded for it. he dresses like a man, and he's ridiculed. it's a double standard. do people actually expect him to wear leggings and nail polish?

    The jacket would look really nice if he straightened his lumbar spine and lifted his chest. A six-pack under three layers is of little interest to anyone. The lovely blue of the jersey would also contrast better with the rich chocolate of the jacket.

    What's wrong with just savoring the hot every once in a while?? He may not be too originally styled, but I don't mind seeing pictures of a beautiful, unselfconsciously turned-out man. Besides, he's an extremely relevant model/aspiration for your average-joe, casual american male looking for an upgrade.

    I wonder what he sounds like when he talks. Like if is mysterious presence is broken by a bunch of gossipy gabbing, or if he sounds like Anontio Banderez, or… Also, I've had jeans that pulled open at the top, revealing the zipper pull. Either their too small at the waist, or they were made in a small batch and the button isn't centered well. They look like they could be custom for that reason, not to mention the fit. Also the stitching seems somewhat un-machine made.

    But overall, compared to the asinine way that many (most) American men dress, I think this sets a very nice (and achievable) example of how to dress, within your comfort zone. And I'll be darned if this man doesn't look nice. I have feeling he could get away without wearing any clothes if he wanted to.
