    Because that is the perfect cut, the perfect fit, and the perfect wash. A hard thing to find for sure. Of course, pairing it with those shoes and a great classic waxed jacket doesn’t hurt either ;)

    I am not sure this looks chic.

    Great shot! You should come to San Francisco sometime. It’s visually very interesting.

    Today I totally disagree…I don’t think it is chic to wear a jeans with a tie.

    I love that look.

    Anybody knows what jacket this is? It looks like a Barbour, but I’m not sure which one it is.

    I think most jeans don’t look as chic as this because these appear to be genuinely worn in rather than some factory finish, they fit properly, and those little turn-ups go so well with the boots.

    super chic ,very Italian x

    Why? Because the guy on the picture is Italian, his jeans has the right size and the right cut (must be Italian too) and the parka looks great as well…

  26. den_ludegroup

    February 5, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    It looked chic, well, because the cut and wash of the jeans worked well with the guy’s frame and the shape of his legs. It’s all in the jeans working with genes.

    Nice looking and nice fitting pair of jeans. Perfect to show off the boots. Wears it well.

    Why this tie??? With this shape??? How to trivialize a potentially perfect look

  32. Simbarashe

    February 5, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    The shape of one’s legs should always be considered when selecting a style too. It is so often overlooked.

    Uhhhmmm, I think this looks ok but not exactly chic. The parka is perfect. BTW, is this Alessandro Squari? I’ve developed a mini-crush on him, thanks to you, Sart.

    This look so great because he’s LIVING in these pieces… hood armed, book in tow, pockets full… he’s not wearing it well, he’s living it well.

    Love the navy blazer peeking out.

    This brings to mind a question I’ve had for a while: navy blazer: still classic (and which version?), potentially modern, or tired cliché?

    • Chat Robinson

      Many years ago when my wife and I ran our own business we had to visit conferences and exhibitions for one client on a regular basis. The navy blazer (often with godawful metal buttons) seemed to be the standard option for the style-free man who couldn’t think of what else to wear. I told my wife that if I ever wore one she should shoot me. So, I think it’s still a bad option. Maybe there’s somebody out there who can prove me wrong.

    It’s because of the shoes!

    It’s because Italy looks better on men.

    Because not enough people make their own fit from raw denim and not enough people fuck with selvedge denim!

    No. Jeans and tie will never go together. Not good. A parker never looks good.

    I fell in love with the “jeans & tie” look clear back in the 60′s when I was in college. The athletes at our university wore it for dress-up occasions because it was all many of them could afford. Since they were our BMOC, it became the fashion. I still love it! As a previous poster pointed out, it is the perfect high/low look. And this gentleman works it to the nth degree!

    cause italians are always CHIC, no matter what they wear they know how to wear it

    Why can’t jeans always look this chic? Because one has to be thin like him.

  52. Michael

    February 6, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    This looks a lot like some pictures of Daniel Craig in jeans that I’ve seen online. It looks like they are both of a similar build, average height and somewhat muscular. It works.

    Boot-i-ful. Style begins with the shoes.

  54. Anthony Costa

    Love the boots with blue laces paired with denim.

  55. Name*

    February 6, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    because this guy has a great line to his legs — note that he’s not super-thin, but he’s athletically slender. and he’s not knock-kneed — there has to be some “space” between the legs when you stand in order for the pants like this to work. in fact, his calves bow out a bit — which makes narrow pants look terrific. as someone said above, you have to pay attention to the line of the leg. some people are meant to wear this kind of pant, but most of us would have a tougher time with it. sadly, it is partly about genes…

      Exactly. You need the legs for it.

    Because the gentleman’s frame, legs and attitude make all the difference, the jeans in this case are of little importance; anything would look chic on him.

  59. willisthegorilla

    February 7, 2013 at 11:43 am

    its cause his legs are skinny. slim lines of legs always look better. unfortunately for me, i do not have that gift, haha.

    Anyone know what brand of boots these are?

    Jeans are fine. But sport jacket/blazer under a parka is not. Looks like he needed to be warm rather than wear what looks best (an overcoat). Kind of like wearing dark socks with shorts.
