I really like this shot!!!


Blogger Petulia said ... (8:28 AM) : 

fun and funky!I love the shot and the subject


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:30 AM) : 

The pink socks rock!


Blogger Dominica said ... (8:31 AM) : 

He's all about detail...gloves, bow-tie, mixed checkered fabrics...
pinky-red socks, he looks very interesting...

I sometimes wonder if you have conversations with these people ?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:31 AM) : 

No One is fuckin with this dude.
Who is this?


Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (8:41 AM) : 

I don't think he copied this look from anyone else, even though plaids and cuffed jeans seem to be popular now. I won't be copying it, either, but I like the sense that it could only have grown out of an individuals own sensibility and personal sense of style. The two plaids are one thing, but the checked shirt and bow tie are a surprize and a sign that something else is going on here, likewise the lavender socks. There are some interesting things going on in terms of scale and proportion- the shoes/socks/cuffs, the gloves and jacket, the tie. The quirky elements make it and it looks right for him.


Blogger beths said ... (8:43 AM) : 

Crrazy--and why not? Pants, socks and shoes are ideal. The glasses suit the face, not so sure about the hair. The tie and lumberjack shirt? Crrazy, but I know I'll look at this image again. Where is this location?


Blogger stone said ... (8:43 AM) : 

and a bow tie too! My god! one of a kind.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:57 AM) : 

This guy is badass! Great attention to detail.


Blogger Jonathan said ... (8:57 AM) : 

What a character. The old school wing tips are perfect. I wish you could still find shoes like that.


Blogger Simon said ... (9:00 AM) : 

There you go... I like the combination of his ponytale, the glasses, the big beard and the butterfly! Very cool indeed...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:29 AM) : 

I like this, but it's a no-go on the gloves.

like the woolrich coat and the bllack shoes--reminds me of my father.

I saw this guy on the subway this morning. Did you JUST take this photo? If not, he wore the same outfit today.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:54 AM) : 

I sincerely can tell you that this is one of my favorites!
Because this look is not about brands but about intelligence!

Selvedge denim on top of all that too!

Man, this guy has got it. Down. Good.

I wonder what kind of look the female equivalent would be?

Blogger izzydore said ... (10:09 AM) : 

such a character. a lumberjack/dandy/artiste!


Anonymous Jon Patrick said ... (10:18 AM) : 

One of my favorite shots ever. Not many can pull of this eclectic of a look and get away with it. His attitude allows him to own the look, and he clearly has an eye for great pieces and how to put it together. I love the juxtaposition of the hobo gloves and the bow tie. This guy has a masterful style vocabulary.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:21 AM) : 

i love this guy, i always see him walking around and he always looks awesome.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (10:22 AM) : 

Wow, definitely not a follower! Three types of plaid on top (with different scales and that's why they go well). The cuffed pants so we can see a bit of the marled pink socks on top of shoes that can be either very butch (as in this case) or very dressy (with a suit). I like that the look is very attainable, and that attention has obviously been paid to how things fit so that it doesnt look sloppy. Jorge from W Palm Beach


Blogger The Man Who Knew Too Much said ... (10:26 AM) : 

Wow, that guy is rock n roll old style!


Anonymous eachkey said ... (10:35 AM) :

ah! i love this man! this is the same dude you got (maybe last year-ish?) in warmer weather, wearing some seersucker shorts and a T-shirt or something. he had some amazing bracelet(s) happening and his hair-- as it is here-- was nothing short of magnificent.

again: love. this. dude.


Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (10:40 AM) : 

He's so interesting! i like to think he was a preppie who went to Montana and came back to nyc via San Francisco. Great that you found a neutral background to show off all those cool details.


Blogger fig said ... (10:48 AM) : 

i bet he's fun. i wanna sit in a room somewhere in nyc and listen to records with him.


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (10:57 AM) : 

this guy looks exceptional. i could pass on the beard, but i like the idea of taking traditional male garb and spicing it up for a unique look. great, great sunglasses.


Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (11:17 AM) : 

He's doin' his own thing and he looks darn good doin' it!!!!

the triple plaid, is genius


Blogger minouette said ... (11:30 AM) : 

I like it. The shot was so unexpected.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:34 AM) : 

I used to work in the logging industry in northern British Columbia (really!) and I used to see a lot of guys that looked pretty much like this - without the bowtie and the pink socks, of course. Add hobnailed boots and a chainsaw and he's got it nailed.


Blogger May Kasahara said ... (11:44 AM) : 

you can't really beat buffalo plaid and a BEARD!


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (12:01 PM) : 

The Lumberjack!!

Cool picture. Would love to go back to SOHO again's been way too long!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:01 PM) : 

Awesome. I will say that I used to wear 2 contrasting plaid shirts myself many years ago, and this fellow now shows me how it's truly done. I, too, especially like the socks.


Blogger The Rambler said ... (12:02 PM) : 

Noooo! He stole my look! No one outside of the Berkshires is supposed to be rocking the plaid-on-plaid. Darn, back to the drawing board.


Blogger The Life and Times of a Southern Foodie said ... (12:05 PM) : 

Nice blend of patterns and colors.

A nice "American rural" look

The glasses are a bit too modern in line and I think the red coat is ill-fitted and distracting to what is otherwise a nice elegant effortless ensemble.

nice shot!


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

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:13 PM) : 

where does one locate a house like that in SOHO...?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:34 PM) : 

love how transplanted this look is. living in montana, this is what I see every day (minus the bow tie, typically) - it's refreshing and surprising here, though. great shot.


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

Pick socks rock, BUT, no man EVER looks good with rolled up jeans. No one!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:04 PM) : 

i love that someone wondered what the female version of this would be. i love this and would absolutely wear it, in my size of course... wonder how it would look on a 5'4, 105 pound girl?! seriously i find this totally inspirational as a woman. it feels so authentic, and there is nothing i hate more than an outfit that looks like a coustume. fantastic!


Anonymous Anders said ... (1:50 PM) : 

He makes me think of an Elvis Costello gone rogue into the wilderness and then re-emerging months later. Love the wild man beard. :D


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:52 PM) : 

he's kind of what i imagined an aged 'freewheelin' bob dylan' to be like, if had never gone electric.
you know, kind of wise and rough and tumbley.


Anonymous NikkiJoon said ... (1:58 PM) : 

he needs some grooming. BAD. otherwise, it all works. i especially like the bowtie. It blends in a little, but it's cute. but seriously, someone give the guy a razor!


Anonymous Teagan said ... (1:59 PM) : 

Urban lumberjack.


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

I really can't add anything to all the comments excep that they are spot on.

i really liked this shot. I love wearing those same clothes so much, and i don't care what others thing but my girlfriend is not a fan so next time I am going to tell her the Sart must think it's cool. That outta shut her up. She will probably just say "it looks good... on that guy !"


Blogger Alexandra said ... (2:33 PM) : 

Haha Sart, I think this is one of your best shots, if not THE best. Kudos. :)

My money's on those jeans coming from Blue In Green NYC.


Blogger Mr. Badami said ... (3:12 PM) : 

is this the same guy you shot a while a go wearing a super-fitted polo button down and rolled up jeans? what a transformation....


Blogger J. said ... (4:04 PM) : 

I love it!! I also love how the parking lot behind sort of matches the vibe of his outfit. Ive been thinking about the new facial hair style for men. Moustaches and beards are back, i think it looks quite cool but not so sexy...its sort of weird to think about. Even Brad Pitts new moustache is something that is trendy but he looks better/hotter with the old style of scruff.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:07 PM) : 

Fou {Crazy} I do like the pink socks though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:07 PM) : 

This guy has it. I wouldn't dare to clash so many patterns and styles. But he pulled it off. I think the beard adds to the outfit. STYLE!!!
Enough Said.

I have to believe that you are kidding. Seriously.


Blogger missy said ... (4:28 PM) : 

shoes just like my dad used to wear. love the personal style here.. no one else is doing this and it works.

Kick-ass look, great dark blues, I like his take on combining plaid. It makes one wonder what this man does for a living and how he views his work. Nice shot and backdrop, Sart. Very spontaneous!

Curious. No doubt he has opinions to match.

He needs a good barber pronto. Old style, of course, with the steaming towel, cutthroat razor and strop.

Blogger said ... (12:14 AM) : 

Just this week I was getting all nostalgic about Woolrich shirt-jacs, and these days I live in the land of Pendleton, so I'm all about plaids and checks. The bow tie is brilliant and somehow works with all that hair. The mitts are a great touch as well.

All the droopy-drawers teen-agers I have to look at on the train should be forced to study this image carefully.

i love how his wedding band throws you off a bit at first --- but then it makes complete sense.


Blogger seawallrunner said ... (2:25 AM) : 

did he just step out of the boxcar, and on his way to a Beat poetry reading?

Straight out of the 50s, this man.

(and at first I thought it's Al Pacino in disguise, preparing for a new movie role)


Blogger monique said ... (2:33 AM) : 

Not something most men can pull off but he was born for it. I especially love the bow tie and brown check? shirt.

It's odd and beautiful. Like a hip physicist. Can't you just see him walking the hallways of MIT? If he were my professor I sure as hell would've been a lot more attentive in my physics class.

lumber-chic, i wonder how much he really thought about this outfit. bow tie and pink sock, definitely conscious decisions. rest i don't know ..


Blogger Tina Frey Designs said ... (2:16 AM) : 

This is what every lumberjack should wear to transition from day to a dressy evening event! Since you want to blend in with your fellow wood choppers in the forest, the warm plaid layers work. Being in the outdoors, it is always smart to dress in layers and when you arrive at your event, you just shed the coat, and have a perfectly nice outfit with the tie and shoes! This man has it figured out! Straight from the woods to dinner in downtown Manhattan. Fabulous!



Blogger Ilovevynilrecords said ... (4:09 AM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:28 PM) : 

Anonymous' comment about men in "the logging industry in northern British Columbia" looking "pretty much like this - without the bowtie and the pink socks" but with hobnailed boots and a chainsaw" made me LOL.

My immediate reaction to this look was also very We(s)t Coast (Vancouver BC). The red plaid jacket is ubiquitous here - but it's not usually worn with his panache. Great to see this look reinterpreted so interestingly.


Anonymous From Sweden with Love said ... (6:03 PM) : 

Probably Japanese selvage, heavier denim (>14oz), slightly tapered and hemmed like they should. Kind of slubby fabric (could be Texas cotton but not necessarily). Samurai? Oni? Or is it Warehouse Dubbleworks 660 (with low/mid rise - the fly seems to contain 4 buttons)? Great portrait anyhow!


Blogger Diamond Dallas Rage said ... (6:16 PM) : 

First thing that would come to mind if i passed by him on the street is biker/bum!

But damn what great sense of details and style!!!;)!!!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:57 PM) : 

i think this is one of my favorite posts. this outfit is one of few that seems like it was conceived completely intrinsically, without fashion influence, and it still works. this guy has true personal style.

talk about rounding this up! every detail is thought through.


Blogger ideas in vitro said ... (3:35 AM) : 

The most remarkable thing to me: That golden ring with these wool gloves. Risky, yes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:11 AM) : 

The jacket looks a bit like Karen Walker for Swanndri - too bad it was only a one off thing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:13 PM) : 

A fantastic look and the jacket is by Woolrich. I know as I used to have one :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:22 PM) : 

I sometimes wake up with the playful idea of wearing only black/stripes/whatever and keeping it as original as possible. This man surely has fun with his plaid. He's a badass, mountain man.


Blogger Erica said ... (9:32 AM) : 

I saw this guy downtown once and could not stop staring at (read: worshipping) his unique sense of style. With the beard and slightly messy pulled back hair, he was wearing a "preppy" cable-knit and dockers. On anyone else it would look foolish, but he looked so hip and well planned.


Blogger meredith said ... (9:35 AM) : 

I like everything about this shot, especially his color choices. Oh and the mix or the plaids and the texture of the fingerless gloves, and the shoes with pink socks and cuffed dark jeans. Ok I like everything about this picture.


Blogger RobynJ said ... (4:37 PM) : 

I love this guy. The mixed of checks, I think, works well with the rest of his outfit. I especially love the turn-ups.

at first from afar when u see his two checked shirts you think he must've made a mistake of some sort, but upon closer inspection, u can see that he is indeed an intricately dressed man. Love the wash of the jeans and teh small details. great photo. =]


Blogger Rebekah said ... (8:18 PM) : 

This guy looks like a native north Idahoan. Really, most of the guys here dress like that, except that some of them wear Carhartt's instead of the denim.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:37 PM) : 

This reminds me of one of the hottest looks I've ever seen;a guy pulls up beside me at a stop light, full mountain man beard, full frizzy head of hair,calm and quiet yet very focused wide eyed almost madman-like, driving a brand new ferarri sport coupe.


Blogger mayim said ... (12:47 AM) : 


plus, he looks like my dad!!


Anonymous V said ... (2:58 PM) : 

Saw him a couple of times in early Fall, with the same shoes, similar jeans, and checked shirt. His look is very deliberate. His hair and beard look slightly unkempt in this photo, but I assure you in person that is not the case. Each time I've seen him I have been struck by how great he looks -- last time was at the airport when he was with a young woman I assumed was his wife; she had a very different style but looked just as fantastic.


Blogger Urbane Legend said ... (7:39 PM) : 

I approve of the bow tie (I usually do) and the jeans, and even the beard. But I can't get past the fact that this chap is... wearing three shirts.
