On the Street.....At Glockenbachvierte, Munich

I like how he has taken a pretty basic look and made it pop with a little color from the scarf.

I dig the look. Really. But I guess there isn't a catchy condescending word for "Mandals" in German.

Sart, I love your work and your blog, you know I do, but sometimes your scarf fetish (I mean that in a nice way) derails you, this is a case in point: a very average to bad outfit, and the scarf does not elevate it, instead it makes it look more contrived. I know you'll disagree and try justify it, but come on folks!

 

Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (4:10 AM) : 

lets get one thing straight
I DO NOT HAVE A SCARF FETISH!!
I HAVE SCARF ENVY!

I do have a shirt fetish though

 

Blogger sandman_gr said ... (4:57 AM) : 

He he Scott... I like the total look but he could have gotten better sandals, these are not looking good, especially compared to that scarf.

 

Blogger sandman_gr said ... (5:28 AM) : 

Just a correction, it is written Glockenbachviertel (with an i at the end)!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:24 AM) : 

how do you do that? i think this is the first time i have seen flowers in your background - usually some ultra urban backdrop - & the flowers in the background make that scarf just pop out of the photo. quite amazing.

 

Blogger editor said ... (7:17 AM) : 

ah ha, an example of a light weight scarf! this one works in the sunny weather.

 

Blogger Butch said ... (7:47 AM) : 

To me, there's a sartorial collision here: basic, spring-ish sportswear, informal down to the sandals and then....a whoosh of large scarf--an element from another dress approach, and geared for another season, entirely. It makes one wonder what he was thinking.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:34 AM) : 

He looks extra silly with the scarf on an obviously gorgeous day.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:15 AM) : 

When you look at the history of the cravate, there were those points in its development at which the neckwear looked clownish. This is a throw-back to those times. This photo can only be about the scarf, and it looks terrible.

I was wondering about scarves and warm weather.

And we all know about your thing with girls on bikes.... < grin >

Maybe I haven't undestand it really well...

Premiering in...WHAT???
Hahaha!

 

Blogger donut said ... (11:06 AM) : 

Please don't use "pop" anymore. Please.

 

Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (11:39 AM) : 

He looks really great, and his scrave is so beautiful!

 

Blogger Gudl said ... (12:05 PM) : 

It is called "Glockenbachviertel"

(you missed the 'l' at the end. "Viertel" is a quarter...I thought you might want to know)

 

Blogger Silje said ... (1:23 PM) : 

Excuse me if you have mentioned this before, but are you visiting a lot of countries on your trip overseas? I would love it if you could visit Norway as well. A nice country with nice people!

I love the mix of spring and summer look on the guy. The sandals are obviously for summer but the scarf is such a spring accessory. I love it. I think it's fabulous. Best photo from Munich so far.

 

Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (1:40 PM) : 

After reading Sart's "scarf envy", I have to add this comment.

The printed cotton scarf (as opposed to the usual cashmere or wool knitted scarf) thing has created quite a debate in NYC recently esp. with the popularity of the black & white checkered Yassir Arafat print that is gaining some attention about fashionistas.

This scarf looks like a light weight cotton print too.

This looks like his head was pasted on.

hi,i'm your fans from china.maybe you would be some surprised but reading your blog really be a part of my life.:)

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:51 PM) : 

if you were traveling in various then-bohemian summer spots such as the Greek Islands around 15-20 years ago, you would have seen a million Yasir Arafat-printed scarves on the scruffy Euro-hippie types. Funny that they are just now being picked up by the fashionistas!

I second the dismissal of the word "pop". What would one use as a replacement? "complimentary contrast"? "tonal compliment"?

 

Anonymous nana said ... (3:11 PM) : 

Munich is great - but I think it is not really easy to find stylish
people here... he looks sympathic ;D

 

Blogger WinstonC said ... (3:24 PM) : 

I like the scarf, but hate sandals on men in a metropolis. So wrong. I also think this is more of an end of summer outfit rather than a beginning.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:14 PM) : 

hey sart. saw u today at götgatan at söder in stockholm. you looked F-A-B. I couldn't stop staring at you.. kisses/a

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:57 PM) : 

I want those sandals!!

ps: im a female teen, strange?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 PM) : 

He is a very cute boy, and he has a gentle vibe. Love the scarf, pants, sandals. A free spirit. Sweet. xoxo, Lady

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:54 PM) : 

I like everything but the sandals. Why does the men's market in sandals offer us such poor choices.

 

Blogger Lucy said ... (1:14 PM) : 

Hey where do all these rules come from? Men shouldn't wear sandals in metropolitan areas. This is a late summer outfit. Scarves shouldn't be worn when the sun is shining.

It looks like the perfect outfit for hanging out in the park on a nice day... isn't that enough?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:19 PM) : 

That scarf overpowers the blandness of his outfit. The way the scarf is tied reminds me of a man who rushed away from the dinner table too soon and is still wearing a bib.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:44 PM) : 

The scarf and sandals throw my eyes off balance. Is this good or bad?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:11 PM) : 

That large a scarf with such a trim shirt is not a good match.
