Every Color In Its Place

There are some colors that I can't imagine wearing in any other shape than a knit layering piece.

Deep Maroon, purple, orange - I can't really imagine wearing these colors as a pant or a jacket or even a shirt but as an accent layer piece i can't imagine dressing without them.

I just bought a few mtm Polo sportcoats for my next Pitti trip and it seems every jacket I bought would look perfect with that cardigan Noah is wearing (above).

I love a bright, clear orange (the kinda color orange they would use in a sports jersey) polar-tech fleece vest under a cashmere navy sportcoat - so lux/tech and so very, very American.

Personally I mostly buy cardigans or double-zip sweaters because they lay more flat on the body than a pullover or sleeveless vest and they don't get that bulky roll right where my bulky roll is.

When I posted this image before, for me, it was always only about the purple knit with the navy.

Noah's hair is perfect.

So effortlessly gorgeous. I love the buttons on his coat, and the color of the cardi (as you said). Who is this Noah?
And Jack Daniel, you are so right!

my husband uses those colors in that way, too. I remember , when we first married, being a little surprised at some of pieces he would look at to buy, since my overall impression was that he dressed conservatively. took me a while to see how he put things together.

I like the way his hood frames his face almost loking like a doulbe "portrait" collar.


Blogger citizen said ... (3:28 PM) : 

Oooh yes. The layering is excellent, and the hair is fantastic!

I've long hated orange, but lately I've been learning how to work it into my wardrobe as an accent. In small doses, it's beautiful.

Is there a reason you do not post pictures of yourself?
I do get a sense of your style through your work but visuals are always better.

I agree with Jack Daniels. The quaff is very agreeable on this gent of the street. I also love the fabrics and layering. An urban naturalist might frolic in the summer, but he struts in his winter duds.


Blogger Terri said ... (5:36 PM) : 

background plays well with the color of clothing Noah's wearing.


Blogger PAULO said ... (7:06 PM) : 

The jacket he's wearing is BALENCIAGA.

Effortlessly cool...

Forget about the short chap in the top pic. The real star here is the navy blazer in the bottom photo. Wow! I love the double-breasted jacket, ticket pocket, and peak lapels. The purple v-neck jumper and navy tie are wonderful. It's a great combination. Great photo, Scott!


Blogger Cupcake Monster said ... (4:15 AM) : 

I can't imagine any other way to precisely define what it means to wear a double-zipped sweater rather than a pull-over and the beautiful, landscape effect that layering creates; drawing the eye from one color and shape to the next, each new color and shape trapping and drawing the human eye into a web of exquisite and yet subtle details.

A-MAZE-ing! Thank you so much. I'm trying to gather a little group to go photo-op'ing in San Francisco this Friday, since today I had one too many love-bites from the amount of layer upon gorgeous layer of chic that slowly rolls up and down those hills.

You should come! If you can. And bring your jackets with you.

I've found the perfect orange and light green colored jacket...I'll send you a picture soon but it's short and a soft-shell jacket...not very practical but reasonable.

Great shot; lovely, casual but calibrated, layering....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 AM) : 

nah, i think one can wear orange, lavender, burgundy by themselves...
you just need confidence!
Take for example indian men...
I often see sikh guys wearing things such as bright orange shirts, and it ALWAYS looks great.


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (10:46 AM) : 

OMG, are the grandfather cardigans making a comeback in men's wear?!?!?!

You are so right about the color, Sart. And the fit. Otherwise, it would just look grandfather-y.


Blogger sandman_gr said ... (10:53 AM) : 

Excellent color combinations!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:03 PM) : 

Anyone know where I can find Noah's jacket online?


Anonymous schemmer said ... (3:39 PM) : 

holy handsome! the hair!!!


Blogger still said ... (5:23 PM) :

So snarky.

He's not short!...Really great jacket!


Blogger Kate said ... (7:06 PM) : 

I enjoyed the comments about orange. As a color expert I can tell you that orange, a close relative of red, sparks more controversy than any other hue. There is usually strong positive or negative association to orange and true orange generally elicits a stronger "love it" or "hate it" response than other colors.

The cardigan is from Rugby. Its from the fall 2006 season. I own it and its quite heavy and feels great


Blogger underneath said ... (4:28 AM) : 

The jacket must be inspired by a vintage jacket Nicolas himself wore on the cover of Self Service some years ago.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:37 PM) : 

oh my Noah is so handsome! (gushes!!)

It's totally the hair that does it for me, gives the whole look that little something something.
