On the Street..Horizontal Stripe Shirts, Paris

Horizontal stripe shirts is not something I would do but I must admit that this gentleman carries it off nicely.

This man is Princess Elena of Spain's husband, Jaime de Marichalar.


Anonymous Verdiales said ... (6:33 PM) : 

that is so in-your-face

I love it

a dark tie would make it pop more, and a red pocket square would give it more flavor than the dollop of whipped cream

the man is taking chances, good for him


Blogger Butch said ... (6:36 PM) : 

A big guy with a rather strangely proportioned suit.

However, like the color boldness, if not the horizontal stripes, which create a sort of cognitive dissonce with so much length everywhere else.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:38 PM) : 

Mmmm, zesty! I think it's time for some horizontal stripe action in menswear.


Blogger Gudl said ... (6:44 PM) : 

He looks great!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:46 PM) : 

great shot Sart

love the shirt , though I prefer a different collar for myself, but like his choices


Blogger Rita said ... (6:47 PM) : 

you really have a sart-crush for this spanish royalty!! jaime de marichalar is the personification of the 21st century dandy! i also like is style, quite original!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:48 PM) : 

He is Jaime de Marichalar, isn't he?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:51 PM) : 

He's married to a Spanish princess.


Anonymous Di said ... (6:51 PM) : 

Marichalar again.
Que fuerte


Anonymous jsavile said ... (7:07 PM) : 

Peter O'Toole wears a nice example of a horizontal striped shirt in "How To Steal A Million." He carries it off wonderfully.

Your chap carries it off too, though I like the rather lugubrious expression as much, if not more, than I do the clothes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:20 PM) : 

D. Alvaro de Marichalar, Duque de Lugo, son-in-law of King Juan Carlos of Spain, always creative, always impeccable, not the first time on your blog either. Noticeable improvement on his wife's sense of style after they met.

BTW, we are looking forward to seeing you in Spain, sooner rather than later. I am curious to see what wonderful pictures you will take.


Blogger Margarida V said ... (8:04 PM) : 

actually he is a prince, and i have always thought him to be extremely elegant.


Anonymous Vivianne said ... (10:28 PM) : 


He's helped Elena's sense of style in a big way!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:01 AM) : 

Nice look .
Well he always dresses well.
Let´s just hope he can keep up appearances !
Otherwise Spain might become a republic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:25 AM) : 

He is one of the most stylish Spanish people today, along with Rafael and Luis Medina, the sons of Nati de Abascal (amazingly elegant herself.)
BTW, he is 6'6". I haven't seen many people of this size being so elegant.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:48 AM) : 

Trying too hard if you ask me. The clothes are wearing him and not in a good way.


Blogger Ramiro said ... (2:53 AM) : 

There is one detail you should take into account: He suffers from a rare kind of paralysis that affects only have of his body. Despite this, he's been able to stay as the gentleman he is... I little too flashy for me but definetely a gentleman.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:01 AM) : 

Not Alvaro, but Jaime


Blogger frau mo said ... (3:22 AM) : 

horizontal stripes?


Blogger Paulita said ... (4:35 AM) : 

I like this pic, he has lots of style, and since the princess is her wife, she has improved a lot as well.

But sometimes I think he is simply too much. Maybe not in Paris or in New York, but for Madrid he is too much.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:51 AM) : 

yes, yes, looking forward to seing you in Spain with your camera, and your special eye for fashion.
what you will get.... surprise, because we spanish people ARE DIFFERENT!!!


Blogger laura said ... (5:21 AM) : 

this man almost always dresses impeccable. very fashion oriented. although sometimes, he takes high risk clothing decisions that i'm sure are reprimanded at palace...


Anonymous Fency said ... (6:11 AM) : 

The second time that you published a picture from Jaime de Marichalar. You have to know his wife and specially his sister-in-law, the marvelous Letizia, Princess of Asturias and married with Prince Felipe. She's really charm!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:51 AM) : 

I adore the shirt but agree with verdiales about the tie and handkerchief. The white square seems like an afterthought.

Could you cross reference earlier pictures of the same person? It would be a lot of work, but it would be fun to see their style across time.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:16 AM) : 

I agree,in Spain we also want to be"Sartorialisted"...I´m sure you´ll take great pics...We have all you need:great light,great inspiring food and wines and great stylish people(known and anonymous ;D)


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:08 AM) : 

Agreed - is it partly because he seems so tall and lean?


Blogger laia. said ... (9:25 AM) : 

I don't think I ever saw a nice shirt with horizontal stripes like that, but he certainly makes it work!


Blogger katsai said ... (9:42 AM) : 

i KNEW his face rang a bell!

and he's just a snippet of Spanish-style ... Would be so great to see what you choose on the "calles" here, looking forward to it.


Blogger baglife said ... (10:07 AM) : 

Don Jaime is, with the prince of walles, the the most elegant member of european royal families.
greetings from spain.


Blogger Raquel said ... (10:39 AM) : 

He is Jaime de Marichalar, as you know.
Scott, we want you in Spain, as soon as possible!


Blogger styleandsubstance said ... (11:08 AM) : 

something with a little personal style. Love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:54 AM) : 

Jaime is just one of the most classy Spaniards around. This is not my favorite out-fit. I have seen him many times better dressed.

What I really admire about the Duke of Lugo and his wife HRH Infanta Elena is their constant vindication of Spanish dressing traditions and style. You should see him wearing the Spanish cape or the Goya inspired dress of Elena in his brother’s pre-wedding party.


Blogger ricpic said ... (3:07 PM) : 

Size is a big factor in being able to carryout this look. If he were smaller, and especially, smaller headed, the shirt/tie would overwhelm him.


Blogger Cosima said ... (3:36 PM) : 

Yes! It is Marichalar! Funny he liked to pose.


Blogger Cristina said ... (4:09 PM) : 

Jaime de Marichalar!!!! at your blog!!! nice! he has character and an own style, quite difficult to see here in Spain. He has personality in "his own dress code", and what it is better, he has glamour!
Include , we can say that sometimes he is creating new trends!
Chapeau !


Blogger angie said ... (4:33 PM) : 

Sorry don't agree with most of the people that sent comment. I am Italian and have been living in Madrid for 3 years now...and haven't seen lots of smart people or style-conscious people strolling out there...oh, miento, I had the vision of a colorful :) Agatha Ruiz de la Prada yesterday walking Calle Serrano. I wish I had my camera!


Blogger atelier said ... (5:12 PM) : 

He is the one who turned his wife into an elegant woman


Blogger Uma said ... (5:46 PM) : 

He is the King of original the new dandy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:26 PM) : 

That collar needs a bigger knot. Interesting look, though. :)


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

looks like a big stick of bubble gum:)


Anonymous kstone said ... (2:54 AM) : 

Horizontal stripes are extremely difficult to do properly unless you're Querelle or Elvis in the jailhouse. I think he's almost there but at closer inspection the look disappoints. Maybe, I'll have to watch Peter O'Toole in "How to.." to see how he does it. Thank you again Sartorialist for this though provoking pic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:37 AM) : 

He is the Duke of Lugo, son-in-law of HM Juan Carlos I of Spain. He´s married with the Infanta Elena, one of the most elegant woman in the world!!. Please, come to Spain. There are fantastic people to shoot, specially in the north of Spain and in Madrid.


Blogger said ... (3:08 PM) : 

Jaime de Marichalar?!?!



Anonymous sanzot said ... (6:17 AM) : 

Yes, please come to spain but d´ont forget come to Andalusia a true paradise with the most beautiful women in the world.


Blogger cletana said ... (6:21 AM) : 

his style is very controversial here in spain. some people love it, some hate it. personaly, i like it.


Anonymous Victor said ... (12:57 PM) : 

He's one of the best dressed people around. One of my style guru's !


Blogger tomassocroccante said ... (11:19 PM) : 

I wore horizontal striped shirts when I was young and skinny - not so much since. I'm not sure with a vest though ... strange visual argument with the V of his waistcoat.


Blogger Off The Cuff said ... (12:23 AM) : 

You know, I 'm not really feeling this outfit. He looks out of proportion and overall, the outfit seems somewhat unsettled. Both the vest and suit coat have an uncomfortable fit - at least in the picture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:25 AM) : 

I wish there was also the picture with the flowered pants he wore like 3 summers ago in Mallorca!

;-) It shocked whole Spain!!


Blogger Gypsy at Heart said ... (9:51 AM) : 

Jaime de Marichalar, Duque de Lugo. After marrying Elena, she became an icon of fashion and style. Not to keen on the shirt though. I've seen him dress better.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:28 PM) : 

I think it's nice to see someone doing something different but the suit doesn't fit him very well. It's obviously too big in the shoulders. This bugs me quite a lot!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:46 AM) : 

Actually, ex-husband...


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

Thanks for this pic, very timely too as he is now all over the news here in Spain due to their "temporary separation". His style isn't really appreciated here unfortunately - most people find him too "flamboyant" and that is NOT a good thing in my home country. As the saying goes, "Nadie es profeta en su tierra" - so Spanish...


Anonymous nucleo said ... (6:22 AM) : 

Very smart? JAJAJA


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:17 AM) : 

you photograph royalty, quite well!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:33 PM) : 

soon to be ex-husband! they have separated.


Anonymous Juan said ... (2:45 PM) : 

I love marichalar's style! Do you know where I could find this type of shirts? thank you very much


Anonymous le chip c'est chic said ... (4:54 PM) : 

See smart, or sophisticated people, in the spanish streets isn't unusual (Sartorialist could check more often). The style of Jaime de Marichalar is controversial only for ordinary people because he don't dresses in the middle class style who wear the rest of the Spanish Royal Family (and common Spaniards,or any countries, in general): He's a dandy. But there are a lot of interior designers in Spain who dress like him and nobody frightens.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:41 PM) : 

que freak!
que chic!

Jaime's must


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:01 PM) : 

Bravo Jaime!!!, you have brought back the meaning of aristocratic dressing and behaviour to our already too "petit-bourgeoisized" royal family!!! Pity Elena will not have your keen eye next to her in the future.

he's quite fond of stripes actually...of white lines to be more precise..


Anonymous Striped shirts said ... (4:47 AM) : 

I have been looking for ages to get striped shirts just like this one. I just love the look along with a nice suit.
