On the Street..... High Impact Accessories


Comments on "On the Street..... High Impact Accessories"

 

Blogger Andreas said ... (9:47 AM) : 

Great, I like the combination of the brown/pink shoes with the purple/brown/blue striped socks! Good idea to roll up the shirt with the pullover.

 

Blogger Karen said ... (9:48 AM) : 

So much love for those shoes paired with the socks! Love how the rest of the outfit is subdued colours to further draw attention to the feet. Brilliant!

 

Blogger Olviya said ... (9:54 AM) : 

so moody picture! rose boots and socks - very positive!

 

Blogger Lucy said ... (9:59 AM) : 

I think the socks are brilliant with those trousers

 

Blogger VestidorConde said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Uahu, i'm in love with this outfit. Elegant yet risky. If you start looking at it from top to bottom it's simply a great surprise to see how it ends. Great

Anyone any idea of where to get this shoes?

 

Blogger Emmanuel Joseph said ... (10:07 AM) : 

Damn those shoes rock!

The guy on his right is the guy whom you pictured in your structured jacket and shorts post righto?

 

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

I love, LOVE the second photo. Something about it just makes me really cheery.

 

Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (10:13 AM) : 

The first shot is really nice- you give, as you often do, the indication that there's also something else of interest just outside the frame, which is tantalizing and adds a nice tension to the photo.I like the hat and the just-in-view scarf. Those shoes are high-impact, all right. They look perfect on him. The socks, wide cuffs, rolled sleeves, sweater, tie, bracelet- all very nice. He looks happy to be sporting them!

 

Blogger XAVS said ... (10:26 AM) : 

Cool! Well, love all his look in fact! Nice cardigan, those pale colors look fabulous on him and fit great with the shoes and socks giving them their deserved first place in the podium of shocking accesories...Love'm.
Do we know anything about the designer? Colours are quite alike to Givenchys bet for this season but haven't seen them before...

 

Blogger ricola said ... (10:28 AM) : 

Wunderbar!!! Those shoes are not for everyone, but they are indeed for him. It's also a fairly sweet look from the ankles up also.
Nice to see the Ombre Prada brogues on the left as well.

 

Blogger *indie_queen* said ... (10:53 AM) : 

The pink shoes made me laugh! so unexpected

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:54 AM) : 

He is so darned cute! But honestly, you aren't going to see many men outside of fashion capitals wearing shoes or socks like that. It's clown-foot couture. But I guess he holds up a standard of what you can dare if you want to.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:25 AM) : 

great shots Sart! however, the third picture is a little too "Garanimals" for my taste(s)...'shocking Pink' Captoes? i have to agree with Anon 10:54 "you aren't going to see many men outside fashion caps rockin those shoes or that perfectly matched outfit.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:29 AM) : 

What is the "High Impact" in photo 1?

 

Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (11:32 AM) : 

I like the look, although seeing as how the shoes are already unconventional, and rather extraordinary in a fabulous way, I would pair them with plain socks, or even no socks at all! A debated option in this blog, I know. I agree with the earlier post about the feeling that something interesting is happening off frame, and that makes for an interesting photo. Jorge from W Palm Beach

 

Blogger Meredith said ... (11:39 AM) : 

The second fellow is cuteness personified.

 

Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (11:55 AM) : 

i love this post - but such different pictures! i love the pink toe capped shoes and his socks and the way he keeps it all around his feet and ankles, doesn't try to bring the pink in anywhere else making it all the more surprising and humorous. As for the top photo, the linen Mao suit and kooky hat, it has mystery. For me the picture is all about his eyes,his earrings and the buttons on the suit.

 

Anonymous Shaina said ... (12:07 PM) : 

Oh my gosh! First thing I notice were his shoes! I love, love his shoes! There so psychedelic. They remind me of these pairs of converse my brother has, which are like screaming blue and pink!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:08 PM) : 

those brown and hot pink oxfords are unbelievable!! why can't they make those for women!!!

 

Blogger Basco5 said ... (12:29 PM) : 

I like the post, but for me the shoes are a bit to clown (I have a slight fear of clowns), if they were pointed at the ends it would work a lot better.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:02 PM) : 

fabulously fun!!
who makes the shoes?!

 

Anonymous Andreas Hermansson said ... (1:40 PM) : 

Just love those shoes, absolutley fab! And the combo with brown and pink can almost never go wrong, a personal favourite combo.

 

Blogger IRENE said ... (1:43 PM) : 

That's a happy guy! Oh you never sease to inspire.

 

Blogger Kitschen Pink said ... (1:44 PM) : 

It seems high impact is the same as 'doesn't really correspond with the rest of the outfit' ...? t.x

 

Anonymous Z said ... (1:59 PM) : 

Everything is great down to the caps of the shoes in the 2nd pic... just a bit overdone I think... sorta a clownish aspect that throws the rest of the outfit off too much.

 

Blogger The Storialist said ... (2:01 PM) : 

I have to echo the excitement over the shoes...the effect is very Neapolitan ice cream-ish.

So much fun!

 

Anonymous effie said ... (2:10 PM) : 

he looks jolly in those funky shoes! he sends out happy vibes. agree with 'basco5', i think the shoes would work magic if they were pointy at the front. the outfit works great on him as well.

 

Anonymous Hissy Stitch said ... (2:12 PM) : 

"Impact" they have in spades, but that's not always a good thing. I don't like to be "impacted." I prefer to be charmed. Those bright pink toes make me think "clown shoes."

 

Blogger Johanne said ... (2:37 PM) : 

haha, those shoes are adorable!

 

Anonymous Wax said ... (2:40 PM) : 

the 2nd guy's shoes are to die for!!! i wonder where he got those.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:35 PM) : 

#2, seriously, are you kidding me?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:38 PM) : 

where are these shoes from?

great flashy color!!!!!!!

 

Anonymous fly said ... (4:01 PM) : 

The gentleman in the 2nd photo, exudes a whimsical confidence, that is difficult to ignore. He appears to be geninuenly happy. His choice in clothing speaks to his state of mind. who cares what anyone else thinks...Well done for him and you (sartorialist).

 

Blogger Jovon Higgins said ... (4:03 PM) : 

I love all the photos...But the 3rd photo is striking...I love the color combination and his shoes are fierce!

 

Anonymous cogscischristina said ... (4:05 PM) : 

those shoes are brilliant!

 

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

This little guy needs to steer clear of rough neighborhoods with this shoe/sock combination.

 

Anonymous rednexmama said ... (4:34 PM) : 

I want this whole outfit, head to toe, and I'm a girl! I think what keeps the shoes from looking "clowny" are his own proportions. Being on the delicate side, himself, it's not like he's got giant feet or anything.

 

Blogger Austin.Radcliffe said ... (4:47 PM) : 

both excellent images to keep in mind, as a man, while {constantly} cultivating my own styles

 

Anonymous Minx said ... (4:55 PM) : 

I am just loving those shoes...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:55 PM) : 

I must have those shoes! Where!?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:11 PM) : 

Oh where do you find these cute guys.
OMG!!!!!!
So cheery and happy looking.
And those shoes are so gay, I can't stand it; I just want tomarry that guy.
Thanks, Sart, you've made my day.

 

Anonymous george b. said ... (5:39 PM) : 

perfectly matched.
I love how the shoes match the socks, and then the rest of the outfit has subdued colors
+ love the cardigan and how he's rolled the shirt sleeves.
He's gotta be confident.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:40 PM) : 

Love the socks......Has anyone seen the new brand Stanley Lewis...selling on line Ties with perfectly matching socks..the look is awesome!!!! Very Chic, and elegant.

BOYZ just wanna have fun! Onya!

 

Blogger starbahks said ... (6:45 PM) : 

i really love what the guy on his right is wearing. the shorts and the jacket are lovely.

 

Anonymous andrew said ... (7:04 PM) : 

eeeesh...
daring... yes
brave... yes
but does it really work? imo NO

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:27 PM) : 

Those shoes and socks would just finish the all white outfit from a few days back!

 

Blogger cassaundra said ... (7:42 PM) : 

I am fascinated with the pink-toed shoes and striped pink socks - what a statement. Wish I had the courage ...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:47 PM) : 

Can't believe no one has commented on whimsicality of #1. His coffee mug(?) is leaning with him! Love it.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:32 PM) : 

ah hello, are you all kidding? this extra from the wizard of oz looks...ah...silly? come on!

 

Anonymous bellanes said ... (9:37 PM) : 

Go Asian Guys!!!!!!!

His shoes and outfit are sooo fetch.

 

Blogger Czar Kastik said ... (10:31 PM) : 

I'm a guy who is all for wearing pink, particularly hot pink (it grabs ladies' attention). Even though it strongly contrasts with the rest of the outfit, I say that the pink on the shoes is absolutely sick.

Good call.

 

Blogger Ryan Mac said ... (11:03 PM) : 

He looks excellent from the tip of his cap toes lace-ups to the collar of his shirt! I love those rose and white stripped socks with the trousers.

 

Anonymous kls said ... (11:15 PM) : 

I love those striped, candy-coloured socks! Adorable! And the creamy neutral on the socks, pants and tie pulls the whole outfit cleverly together.

 

Anonymous Artemis said ... (12:21 AM) : 

Love the pink shoessss! work it!

 

Blogger saintvenus said ... (12:42 AM) : 

Accessories!
The second man's wear was excellent, the tie, the cardigan, the matching of colour and the way he rolled his sleeves... Of course, his socks and pink-tipped shoes highlight his look!
Man's styling can also be fun and interesting. I would say this man's wear is one of the most inspiring styling that I've seen in this year.

 

Blogger 2wenty8ight said ... (1:14 AM) : 

The guy in the second picture looks so adorable with his pink shoes and happy smile.

 

Blogger amateur misanthrope said ... (1:17 AM) : 

Absolutely gorgeous! The second guy and his pink shoes!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:45 AM) : 

love everything about this one. He just manages to pull off what no one else could.

 

Blogger April said ... (2:21 AM) : 

The last picture is quite inspiring. I just bought shoes in that shade of pink and it's nice seeing it pulled off so well on some one else even if they are of the opposite sex

 

Blogger pinktuutuu said ... (2:54 AM) : 

He looks happy! Love the shoes and socks!

 

Blogger mouvement pour la démocratie2000 said ... (4:49 AM) : 

I love the second man with brown and pink shoes.This is classic with a little and fantastic touch of fantasy.I think it's a Paul Smith's man.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:57 AM) : 

what is the guy in the first picture holding?

is that the high impact accessory?

 

Blogger slimane said ... (6:15 AM) : 

I want this shoes. so awesome.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:34 AM) : 

These photos that are supposed to be from 2nd of september...are they really?i mean the date represents the exact date when the pictures were taken or just the date the sartorialist puts the photos on the website?because i can see adetail..it s guy,near the one with pink shoes that was photographed many weks ago due to his structured jacket..and now the identical guy,without his face on view is near the guy with fucsia,pink shoes.

 

Anonymous Michelle said ... (7:21 AM) : 

The second guy is just ADORABLE. Love love love his outfit. Top to toe. Superb. Could we have more pictures of his sartorial genius please? I'm in love.

Sigh..

 

Blogger FASHION hearts ME said ... (8:30 AM) : 

Ha, his shoes! Omg. lol

 

Anonymous barbara said ... (9:19 AM) : 

Wooow :) I'm сукефштдн taking these shoes! they're adorable!!

 

Anonymous OldManRon said ... (11:26 AM) : 

It looks like the man in the second picture just painted the toes of a regular set of shoes. I think I like them but can't imagine wearing them except maybe in an alternate universe.

 

Blogger Andy said ... (12:26 PM) : 

Ronald McDonald was my first thought. I love the creativity of it though, it looks like he painted them himself. I think the overall effect would be better without the socks. The colors definitely tie in to the rest of the ensemble but I think the magenta cap toe oxfords are enough.

 

Blogger Brian said ... (1:25 PM) : 

Somewhere a clown is missing a pair of custom-made Italian cap-toes...

 

Anonymous girlygirl said ... (1:56 PM) : 

On a woman maybe. His look makes me nauseous.

 

Blogger Minniti said ... (4:06 PM) : 

is that a shorts wearing man seated next to him? i sure do hope so. i completely disagree with the "social primer" who said that menswear has gone to shame with this new look that he claims was jump-started by casual friday. i think casual friday along with metro-sexuals and gay rights movements, was needed in order to allow men to free themselves of the full suit of armor.

 

Blogger alex said ... (4:51 PM) : 

As I can remember, the guy on the left has already been photographied by you Scott.

an asian guy, with grey jacket and a short, plus a vuitton hand wallet.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:48 PM) : 

he looks ridiculous (in a bad way). The socks are fine, but the shoes scream of effort...

 

Blogger pearlescent said ... (8:13 PM) : 

The second man is very neat! Somehow he makes the socks and shoes work..

Hideous, these shoes and socks are just hideous

 

Blogger Jamie said ... (4:17 AM) : 

An interesting accessory does not an interesting man make.

 

Blogger Matt said ... (4:29 AM) : 

I think that hats are the most problematic accessory in fashion today. I am so tired of ball caps. Maybe the pork-pie is making a comeback?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:37 AM) : 

i love him already!

 

Blogger Nikki said ... (6:50 AM) : 

I, myself would never consider wearing those shoes let alone buy them and wear them :).. but looking at this guy, it really does suit him.. it makes him look jolly nad happy giving that facial expression :) and i amdire people like him wearing bombastic clothing in public and couldn't care less about peoples comments in this case, regarding that particular shoe :) i think everyone should wear whatever he/she likes :) its a matter of style and no one is giving the right to judge and comment or make fun of others. if you are comfortable wearing on thing.. another person will feel comfortable wearing another thing :)

 

OpenID oldoldfashioned said ... (9:05 AM) : 

the second man's smiling confidence is what makes those shoes work, more than anything. fantastic.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:10 AM) : 

Its wonderful to see the guy in the |Mao suit with earings sans the the Mao hat .Now that the chinese are obsessed with western designers this is a nice take on a their cultural reveulution's contribution to STYLE.Fresh, individual and elegant in Blue.The guy in the second picture is a dime a dozen at any Sfilata.

The guy with the piink shoes reminds me of a strawberry dipped ice cream cone I ate this summer! Yum!

 

Blogger iAMsunshine033 said ... (9:28 AM) : 

Ohmigoodness, I was scrolling down and saw the gray with the tie and thought "Oh that's nice.." then I reached his shoes and literally laughed (gleefully of course). That's what I like, pizzazz that make me smile :-)

What a charming guy with a great smile and great pair of shoes. I would walk a mile to have coffee with a person like that!

Thanks for the link to the shoes, F, they are delightful.

wow, what a great guy in the 2nd photo! i can't help but smile and i'm betting that happens to everyone he meets. on someone else those shoes would be awful, tryhard edgy, but they seem made for this guy. feeling inspired!

am I the only one thinking that this are a clown's shoes?

 

Blogger Miljenko said ... (11:37 PM) : 

A bit too much on the pink-tip shoes? Just looks like he's trying too hard. Perhaps it would have looked better if the shoes resonated with the conservative top a bit more. Different tie maybe? Anyway, the only way to try is to go out and wear it, kudos for that.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 AM) : 

definitely trying to hard. he looks like a clown.

Blogger Tim McFarlane said ... (12:19 AM) : 

I like most of what he's wearing, but the shoes remind me of clown shoes. The command too much attention and detract from everything else he's wearing a bit too much. Good for him for being daring, but that one detail doesn't work for me.

 

Blogger Izzie0415 said ... (10:23 PM) : 

I love love love love love love love those shoes!!! I want them!!!!

 

Blogger BOSSA said ... (2:58 PM) : 

These shoes are from a little store in antwerp, Belgium called "Elsa".

The label is a collaboration between Els Proost, Belgian ex-shoe and accessories designer for Dries Van Noten, Emporio Armani, Maison Martin Margiela - and Angelo Penazzato, Italian ex-shoe producer for several famous labels such as Costume National, Hussein Chalayan, Angelo Figus and many more.

Craftsmanship and comfort are major points but then in combination with a fashionable amusing twist.
