Opera pumps are for the opera.

The shoes! The shoes! And are those striped socks?


Blogger positive_negative said ... (9:51 AM) : 

I'm telling you, the best thing anyone can do for the winter is incorporating vibrant colors into their wardrobe! That orange coat against the moss green is GREAT!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:52 AM) : 

You usually dont see stubbs and wooten for casual winter wear, good and intresting choice


Anonymous Monsieur said ... (9:59 AM) : 

LIKE: Quilted jacket is cute. Great fall colors all around. Great haircut.

DISLIKE: The shoes are off. They're more suitable for formal or lounge wear and it doesn't jive with his country look. He should've worn brogues or wellington boots instead.


Anonymous mls said ... (10:00 AM) : 

I like the clementine color jacket!


Anonymous Leigh said ... (10:30 AM) : 

Gosh -- I didn't realize that Chelsea flea market was such a stylin' place to be


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 AM) : 

great mix of color and pattern and then he goes too far with the cutesy pumps which may be ok in certain zipcodes for mixing 'tinis by the fire but not in the morning unless he's just on his way home from a night at Studio 54.

The shoes: I see this guy in Chelsea almost every weekend and he always has on the same shoes. LOVE the orange jacket though!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:33 AM) : 

It's engaging trying to figure out people by their look. This man looks like he is very taken with elegance yet, for the flea market, wants to give it his best country-gentleman spin. It doesn't quite work for me but I do like how he's having fun with his style. Good for him!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:43 AM) : 

What's filling the neck area? An ascot? Agree that the shoes are all wrong, but everything else looks great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:43 AM) : 

I don't see the great thing about this man.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:31 PM) : 

There's a lot of color here! But rather be overcome with it (or shy because of it), he seems comfortable.

Eh, must be the socks.



Blogger marie said ... (12:36 PM) : 

Orange is not my color but it works for him.


Blogger Butch said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Let's hear it for layering....and his orange quilted coat; but the embroidered--what to call them?--slip-ons are effete, over-reaching and just plain wrong for cold city streets....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:44 PM) : 

Sheesh, way too much aristo costumery going on here! The only good thing is the color of the hacking jacket.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:47 PM) : 

nice, but i feel as if you've shot so many of this style already.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:39 PM) : 

Ridicules, ces chaussures!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:55 PM) : 

The shoes?!? No, not the shoes,those socks are not striped they are white! yikes!!!

The man is a cuteheart!


Anonymous Stacy (LA, CA) said ... (2:13 PM) : 

I love his confident look, and if those shoes are part of his style statement, so be it!

Love the jacket! Pos-neg is right about a vibrant color accent. And to me, its more "coral" than orange or clementine, don't you think?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:14 PM) : 

Nice picture. The signs next to him are a good backdrop.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:24 PM) : 

Sart, I know you're out on the street, working quickly, so I am continually impressed by the wonderful backdrops you choose for your subjects! They are consistently excellent.


Anonymous Victor said ... (2:24 PM) : 

He breaks every rule and I just love it ! Well done !!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:39 PM) : 

ooooh, persimmon! this fellow knows what he's doing -- he could so easily have crossed the line into caricature here, but this is masterfully assembled and he wears it well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:07 PM) : 

i love the orange jacket and his country look,i do think that a pair of "Belgian"shoes in brown would have been super with his whole outfit......can one still buy Belgian shoes in NYC?

But i do not see why he can not wear his slippers on the street,if he feels comfortable in them,our feet have to carry us around all day,Bob Geldorf went furthur,and wore a pair of black velvet embroidered slippers,from Trickers in Jermyn Street in London,right across Ethiopia.That elegant style,bearing a monogram,crest or decoration in gold wire,is known as an Albert slipper.The best slippers are made with padded interiors and light leather soles,and they are as loved and cherished by fathers as they are feared by their sons.

It looks like hunting gear in Wisconsin.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:36 PM) : 

he looks like a soap star.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:38 PM) : 

The shoes make me cringe. Not sure why.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:54 PM) : 

HOT!!! A very English look. He must have money to burn to wear those shoes on pavement though!


Anonymous John said ... (4:36 PM) : 

Knockout....apart from the shoes as many have commented.


Blogger tartanscot said ... (4:52 PM) : 

ok folks, I gotta defend "the shoes" . . . . . I own a SHAMEFULLY number of these shoes, a few pairs of Stubbs, but mainly from an amazing shoppe on Jermyn Street in London. They are some of the most durable, comfortable (fully quilted interior) footwear that I have . . . . and, yes, I wear them everyday with jeans/sportcoat or trousers/sweater . . . .

and as far as "appropriate in some zipcodes" comment goes . . . ummmmmm

well, let me start that over again . . .
One of the reasons that I LOVE this site, and the reason that I come back to it everyday . . . is that it's about STYLE not fashion.

Fashion is about rules and hemlines and "hot" colours and "must-have" accessories . . .

Style is about knowing what looks best on you and how you want to world to see you regardless of "the rules" that season . . .

and don't think Scott's recommending that we ALL run out and buy velvet shoes to wear on our weekend errands . . . . but that's what THIS guy felt like on Saturday . . . .
so no matter WHAT zipcode you live in . . . .
be brave with you clothing . . .
be individual with your appearance . . . .
and be open minded about other people's "style" . . . .

crap . . . . I might trip trying to get down from this soapbox . . . . . yikes . . . .

calmer now,

Every item by itself is very nice. But, together the look is just too much of an attempt to be a Greenwich antiques dealer. It's too studied to be fun.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:10 PM) : 

"Opera pumps are for the opera"

Indeed if they happened to be opera pumps. Except they are velvet slippers and as was said are not ideal for city streets but at home with your smoking jacket and fireplace. Although its up to him where he chosses to wear them. Just thought i would clarify that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:05 PM) : 

I wear velvet shoes with high water jeans and a Thom Browne shirt. Call me crazy but it works for a funky night out.... Oh and no socks please.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:08 PM) : 

Is he wearing a Barbour jacket? Didn't we just see that on a stylish gent a week or so ago in black. Orange is a strong commitment. Good for him! I do agreee though about the shoes. Seems brown suede boots or Chestnut suede wingtips would have been great.

So enjoy the blog Sart! Thanks for giving us Style nerds a place to chat! My wife just said, "I think you have found your hobby."

"I like to hunt in flea markets. I've got money (so states my bright safety-orange, I-hunt-quail-at-plantations-jacket), but please antique dealer, give me a bargain on those quaint salt and pepper shakers?"


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:57 AM) : 

he's wearing the traditional native dress of my people - the WASPs, who inhabit the eastern seaboard region of North America - so he seems perfectly normal in attire ... except for the footwear.

those slippers strike a jarringly wrong note - it's like wearing a turban with a kimono.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:32 PM) : 

Orange and moss work well for the quilting, with his body type I would avoid it - makes him look heavier than he is.
The shoes are a bit off - but then he might find them the most comfortable on earth to wear outside. Wonder what he wears when it rains.


Blogger Poised over London said ... (2:09 AM) : 

Anyone else think the orange stripe in the jacket and the different orange of the Barbour are a bit discordant?


Anonymous nifor said ... (2:14 PM) : 

too dressed, though i love the orange coat. mama never thought you to remove an item after you've dressed up?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:32 AM) : 

Nice colors, but the look appears way contrived to me.

Iconoclast. Love.

Ralph Lauren velvet indoor loafers for outdoor usage. NO NO NO!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:36 AM) : 


Being English, I have to say im not very fond of the idea of wearing slippers outdoors but, this look is so outrageously vulgar that it's gone round the bend and looks good. If you see what i mean?


ps.he is wearing Church's slippers ds.


Anonymous james bruce tancred said ... (10:34 AM) : 

Great choice of orange quilted coat, unuaual, but sets off an interesting slightly flung-together look. The green and browns are all good together, but the shoes are silly - a pair of good brogues would have been so much more appropriate.
