Snowy Morning for Mr. Bastian

Comments on "Snowy Morning for Mr. Bastian"

 

Blogger Eleanor said ... (8:02 AM) : 

Brilliant.

 

Anonymous morty said ... (8:07 AM) : 

The snowdrops look interesting.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 AM) : 

I want that coat.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:01 AM) : 

Cute casual outfit, and as always, your photography renders him all the more striking!

 

Blogger Butch said ... (9:12 AM) : 

Nice--but, truth to tell, I don't think I'd give the ensemble a second look on the street....

This does, however, bring up the issue of Jeans and the Older Guy. At a certain point, I think (and earlier rather than later) one must give up tightness and low rised-ness, I'd say.

In that regard, Mr. Bastian is pushing it a bit, in my opinion....

Handsome Guy, but: red and light blue doesn't match at all. A sporty body like this would have deserved a better wrap.

 

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

now,ok that is snowing, but, at least a designer and wanna be really elegant one, could have use a coat...

Cheers!

Love these two nicely complemented red themed posts. Mr Bastian is a good looking chap and he looks snug as a bug in his puffy coat. This must be a difficult season to dress for in NY if the Sartorialist's midwinter/early spring sun/snow posts are anything to go by.

 

Anonymous cacey said ... (10:07 AM) : 

What a hottie! I like the super-high collar on his jacket.

 

Anonymous t said ... (10:13 AM) : 

michael just kills it! hopefully at least some of those clothes are vintage so that i won't be tempted to try those thousand dollar items on when there in stores.

the man seriously gets menswear.

the combination of his coat and jeans just perfect for me!

i thought we had seen the end of light, pre-faded jeans. the jacket is reminiscent of the vintage hipster look of years past, but the cut is interesting. for me, it's a bit too shoulder heavy, kind of like football pads. perhaps it was being worn in the spirit of the american game. the sweater underneath seems to be another throw-back to the vintage hipster look. without the jacket i think this outfit might be a bit painful. i think he pulls it off as a whole though.

 

Blogger cassaundra said ... (11:05 AM) : 

i love it.

he doesn't scream, "i'm stylish!"

he screams, "i'm comfy, rather stylish, and very handsome!"

great photo, sart.

 

Anonymous The Dude said ... (11:09 AM) : 

Nice fuckin jacket bro.

 

Blogger Mitchell said ... (11:10 AM) : 

It's a great combination of pieces almost everyone has in their closet. He looks so put together, I'm jealous of the execution. On a side note, the snow looks amazing in this shot.

 

Anonymous Black Panther said ... (11:10 AM) : 

Light and faded jeans are back in fashion y'all. Wake up and Throw away your dark APC jeans.

 

Anonymous tj said ... (11:14 AM) : 

Are his shirt sleeves too long? It's makes me wonder if he could wear that same shirt with a blazer or a suit. Wouldn't he be showing too much cuff?

 

Blogger EA and M said ... (11:15 AM) : 

i have no idea who mr. bastian is. apparently he's a designer or something? all i see is an f'ing hot guy working a very normal but brilliant outfit. i love it. he looks approachable-y handsome. nothing he's wearing screams designer (whether it is or isn't i don't really care). i much prefer this version of american male than the dandy or the stud. thanks for a great morning pick-me-up sart!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:42 AM) : 

Wow! That’s like Michael Jackson’s Thriller jacket. Only it’s in down, not leather. Talk about an 80’s flashback!

 

Anonymous Jack said ... (11:51 AM) : 

I love Michael Bastian!
Thanks for sharing this hotness with us.

 

OpenID imaddicted2kettl said ... (12:00 PM) : 

i want his whole new collection........ its flawless

Emperor's New Clothes.

Parka and Jeans. What the majority of rural North Americans have been wearing since 1975. Some people even flip up their collars.

He's only interesting because you know who he is.

 

Blogger Athena said ... (12:57 PM) : 

As a knitter, I want to see that pullover he's wearing underneath the coat.

 

Blogger la valse said ... (1:42 PM) : 

the sweater poking out is phenominal

 

Blogger couch_fashionista said ... (2:01 PM) : 

I think the jacket is very Thriller-esque, but considering that fashion is a 30-year cycle, he is right on time :) I do love slim, straight jeans on any worthy man, age not important as long as there's no muffin top or beer belly.

WTH?

I just got back from France, where I saw men in their seventies wearing jeans that were cut like these. All looked perfectly great. All men in Europe wear jeans, and they're not cut like our grandfather's jeans either. If your slim, you can pull it off. If you're a fat hoser, you're better off wearing khakis. Maybe Butch needs to get out more.

 

Anonymous DesignGod said ... (3:00 PM) : 

I don't get this one Sart. He's a really great-looking guy and the snow flurries add a dramtic flair, but... This looks like something you just throw on to run down to Gristedes for milk. And we're missing some critical info in this ensemble (i.e. the shoes).

 

Anonymous Sam Besi said ... (3:13 PM) : 

the only special about this guy and his outfit is, in my opinion, that he appears on your website.
he could be anybody from everywhere, worldwide (ok, cold climate!)
Maybe you know the (german?) fairy-tale "the emperor´s new clothes" - it´s quite similar with some of your stylish people in your blog....

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:14 PM) : 

Nice but not blog-worthy. Regarding age appropriateness: the jeans fit perfectly and are not too tight, but the coat is much too young for him. If you're balding you have to be really careful with youngish clothes, even if you're still youngish! (I say that as as member of the same club)

 

Blogger AdamfromVA said ... (3:32 PM) : 

looks dope, exudes confidence

 

Blogger Easy and Elegant Life said ... (3:42 PM) : 

He kinda looks like every guy in my high school ski club. Not a bad thing, just surprising to me.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:45 PM) : 

As usual, MB looks amazing. Effortless, yet always chic. I have to say that I completely disagree with jeans and the older man comment...excuse me...he looks great. Why would he stop wearing something that he obviously rocks?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:48 PM) : 

You must have taken this photo because of who the man is because a guy in a red jacket and grubby jeans is nothing special anywhere in the US.

 

Blogger biglakestyle said ... (4:18 PM) : 

I kinda agree with some of the posts; I know he is a big deal I guess but I wouldn't have looked at him for a millisec. It;s absolutely the first uninteresting pic I've seen on The Sartorialist

LL Bean meets Ralph Lauren in the City on a snowy day.

i dig it.

 

Blogger Delilah Garside said ... (7:07 PM) : 

Who says you have to be uncomfortable to be well-dressed? I love the way the sweater meets the jeans.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:32 PM) : 

I swear I had the same coat in the same colours circa 83-84... and gloves too... ski-inspired, don't you think?

 

Anonymous lis said ... (8:40 PM) : 

A handsome man in lovely, worn jeans, looking warm in his cozy sweater and puffer, and all of those beautiful snowflakes...I'm so homesick for NY. sigh.

 

Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:11 PM) : 

those of you that say you see this all over America are missing the point that a lot of people might do "the look" but some (like Michael) just do it better.

this is about fit and proportion - that is what separates this look from the masses in Park City

The man looks fantastic in a pair of dungarees.

wow, i never knew Michael Bastian looked cute...
I do not like those jeans.

 

Anonymous CMU said ... (10:20 PM) : 

Really?
Seriously?

That jacket looks like it came from Goodwill. I wonder if it is totally retro and has zip-off arms.

I thought stone washed denim was out too... guess I'm behind the times.

 

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

"very unoriginal,very uninspired.
it seems you cant walk down the street without seeing this combo"
If this was just a random person
it wouldnt be on this web site so why is it here anyway?

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

Sart, Just HOW does he do it better?

All this is is a short ski-jacket with the collar turned up. They were doing this in my school in 1976.

I still believe you think it's cool because you know the guy who's wearing it.

EXPLAIN please.

 

Blogger cheeks said ... (11:20 PM) : 

too cool to care... ;)

 

Blogger Scott W said ... (11:43 PM) : 

This man is sexy. I love the way his jeans fit, loose but with shape.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:17 AM) : 

Absolutely Sart, this is normal done perfectly. Yes it's not Pitti, but the fit of the jeans is exactly as it should be (come on butch) and that jacket is nice and snug. I want to look like this on a sort of everday basis (except that sweater, way too much knitting for my taste).

Anonymous Isilud said ... (2:58 AM) : 

Where can I find a coat like that?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:56 AM) : 

the jacket is a tad short

 

Anonymous veggiebear said ... (1:26 PM) : 

WOW- that's a fairly yummy looking middle aged guy! The jacket makes the look- again... WOW. I disagree with the post about older men/tight jeans and a need for a sporty looking bod to pull off this look... I like the ordinary guy looking spiffy like that. He looks hot and the contrasting colors red/blue with the falling snow and his expression... love it! I'd hang him on my wall:)

 

Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (1:29 PM) : 

That jacket looks like something Weird Al Yankovich would wear in 1985.

IMHO, the only reason this photo is appealing (and it is a very appealing photo) is that Mr Bastian is a good looking fella.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:09 PM) : 

that is an inexpensive vintage ski coat from the late 70's or 80's. probabaly a CB brand, maybe even Obermeyer. go to Goodwill or The Garment District in Cambridge, MA.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:52 PM) : 

Everything this man wears looks good- be it in magazines or in real life! :)

 

Anonymous frombuenosaires said ... (9:41 PM) : 

"Brilliant"... "Fantastic"... sorry, I don't get it.
What's so special about him? Just a regular guy in regular clothes. Please explain!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:27 PM) : 

Thanks for this photo. While his outfit did not inspire me, curiosity led me to his website: http://www.michaelbastiannyc.com/

MB's collections are "real", interesting and wearable - even on the west coast.

As a tall woman who prefers the simplicity of men's wear-inspired clothes, MB's site is as big a find as your blog. Thanks.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:52 AM) : 

i'm sorry... i don't get this. great smile, fun snow, i like the jacket and the personality, but the whole outfit together just doesn't much special. i do like the gloves.

 

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

I think the jacket is his own design. Check out the slide show here:

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

OK Sart; we take direction well; help a bit with the "fit" especially the "above the belt" approach. I am in Park City, Utah and we do the ski thing fairly well; you'd freeze on a downhill run in this "fit"

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:43 AM) : 

very cool jeans. light washed jeans look right now. nice break from all the dark skinny selvedge.

agree with the post above too, love the intersection of the jacket, the jeans and the belt.

between mr. bastian and tomas maier, more power in bringing back precise, realistic and comfortable menswear.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:42 PM) : 

Awesom! Sexy! Love the jacket....

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:20 PM) : 

I get the point that the fit of the jacket is great, I just have a bit trouble with those colours, esp. not with the faded jeans.

The fit of the jeans are actually pretty good too I think.

I also like the pullover as well.

 

Blogger Kits said ... (6:33 AM) : 

Very nice shot

 

Blogger Mary said ... (6:40 PM) : 

very sexy!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:53 AM) : 

I like the entire look but think that the coat is a little too short. I don't like how the sweater is sticking out at the bottom. And that comment about his jeans being too tight, I disagree completely. They fit him perfectly. Wouldn't change a thing except for the length of the puffy.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:35 PM) : 

he has such an interesting face. love it

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:01 PM) : 

anyone know what jeans those are?
