I LOVE it when men wear their boots tucked in... mmmmmmmmm!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:29 PM) : 

Women tuck their trousers into their boots, only men in uniform may do the same, unless, of course, you have been whisked back in time, in which case, 'fill your boots'.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:31 PM) : 

Just perfect. I love it, the layering, the color and the boots wearing like that. Effortless but super chic.;P
Great pics!

He is so pulled together without looking like a victim.

I do too!


Blogger Butch said ... (5:02 PM) : 

Yes, the belted card gets a big thumbs up, as does everything else in this guy's costume.

It's all nonchalant (now there's an old-fashioned word for you) yet carefully thought-through....

Something about him + the background is very 18th century. Cool shot.

I hate to be mean but it looks way to effeminate, it looks like something a stylish 40 year old woman would look good in.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:06 PM) : 

You'd think that this is a woman's outfit but he manages to look great :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:49 PM) : 

effeminate men are hot!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:44 PM) : 

Haha...the background with the construction and the Asian guy looked as if it was shot in Hong Kong...HEY Mr Sartorialist, when are you coming over to Asia? Your Singaporean FAN here is waiting...


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

can i take him home?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:50 PM) : 

He looks great!! I like the coat together with the boots.

Anon 6:49 and Soleil Noir said what I was thinking in the back of my mind, but was scared to say. Maybe it's the trousers tucked into the boots. Maybe it's the belted cardigan. I don't know.

Don't get me wrong, he did a good job of layering. His color choices are impeccable. I mean, the stripes in the shirt reach over and play well with his bag. The buttons on his card almost seem to be married to the boots.

If he would just untuck those boots...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:12 AM) : 

This guy knows what he's doing. I love the colors and layering. I don't know how I'd feel about the belted cardigan though, maybe if I see it without the coat, I could get a better idea of how it drapes, esp. on a man's silhoutte. As for the tucked in boots, I didn't think it looked odd until someone mentioned it. It is definitely uncharacteristic for men but the colors and fit match well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:28 AM) : 

I love the boots weared like this, specially with the length of his coat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:08 AM) : 

His look appears effortlessly slick and fashionable. I think the boot tuck-in is a great touch that most men couldn't or wouldn't even try to pull off. This guy makes it look great, and personally I don't think he looks feminine. Just stylish, slick, and cool.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:50 AM) : 

How funny, I never would have thought effeminate. What I did think was, wow, nice layering, that's something I'd wear! I'm a girl though. Still, I don't get why it's effeminate. To me, just sharp.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:54 AM) : 

lovelovelove the boots and the vest and.....
his entire look is great actually!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:05 AM) : 

wuuaaa, nice cardigan!!!!
i love it too


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

To tuck or not to tuck, that is the question, apparently. If nothing else, I guess that stops us discussing whether his pants are too long, short, or vice versa.

Tucking pants into boots has a definite "mucking about, doing STUFF in the country" feel to it (I've done it, my Dad's done it, we're manly men) so I never saw this as risking being effeminite, more risking the "come to town for the month's supplies" feel. But the boots look like leather casual boots rather than rubber wellies, so he's on fairly safe ground ... may be mistaken for a lost quail hunter though.

But a belted cardigan seems odd ... a bit of a belt-and-braces overkill problem. Sorry, but there it is.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:41 AM) : 

A bit 'too thought out' for my taste. Kind of womanly.


Anonymous janvangogh said ... (12:03 PM) : 

I am curious as to why the sweater appears to pull at the button on such a trim man.


Blogger beautyinbaltimore said ... (1:23 AM) : 

This guy is fly, he is the perfection of metrosexual lite.

Effeminate? Those comments on gender as an assumption of weakness are just not fair to anybody, anywhere.
Dress and language relate to each other due to cultural meaning that goes beyond form.
The dude looks smart, sensible and totally forward.


Anonymous chriseast said ... (6:25 PM) : 

The tucked in boots work for me--He has a bit of the equestrian look. But, two sweaters look a bit contrived (and warm)...


Blogger Kathleen said ... (8:33 PM) : 

This is an extremely attractive and stylish man. Hellloooo...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 PM) : 

Cute and charming... mmmmm... yes, deserves another yes.


Blogger Lit said ... (3:24 AM) : 

Oh how brilliant! Not too effeminate at all. I don't know how Sart finds people like this all the time, but this is one of my favourite looks, ever. He looks amazing this guy, simply amazing.


Blogger East-West Hybrid said ... (8:12 AM) : 

He's hot....!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:40 PM) : 

An outfit should come together to look effortless. i don't think he's achieved this.


Blogger sandman_gr said ... (8:47 AM) : 

Veeeery sharp! Few guys can get away with pants in boots.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:42 PM) : 

i think he's indonesian
or asian, perhaps


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:00 PM) : 

Its the same guy from spring 2007 guest blog!


Anonymous 7 5/8 LO said ... (6:12 PM) : 

Knee-high leather boots on a man carry very strong connotations of involvement in two well-defined activities: a) English saddle riding; b) lifestyle power exchange. Men not actually engaged in a) or b), or not willing to be mistaken for same, should not wear them.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:03 PM) : 

God, I love Asian men. They can go out in their pajamas and I'm happy.


Blogger pika said ... (2:36 PM) : 

the last thing i would think looking at this is effeminate. it evokes rather images of country living, most especially horse-riding to me and last i checked both men and women partake in those. if the sartorial cultural markers of one group of people are fair game for appropriation in the name of fashion, why not the "english gentleman" look for someone who isn't necessarily a part of that subset?
