On the Street......Jacques, Paris

Comments on "On the Street......Jacques, Paris"


Blogger Mele said ... (9:10 AM) : 

The right interesting combination.


Blogger Dick said ... (9:11 AM) : 

Very much like the bow tie - usually the preserve of the English.


Blogger Sophie said ... (9:13 AM) : 

This made me smile.


Blogger Tristan said ... (9:13 AM) : 

Argh, he ruined it with the white socks!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 AM) : 

Haha this guy is so fresh. The shoes and the bowtie make this outfit. Great photo, Scott!


Blogger Moi said ... (9:18 AM) : 

Je t'aime!


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (9:18 AM) : 

People think bow ties are very formal attire, this gentleman wears his with confidence and a not-so-formal suit. I love the sneakers, although I would have matched the socks to the trousers. The rule that I like on this is: match socks to pants, you dont want to look like you are wearing booties (unless, of course, you are). I am still trying to figure out how you get the subjects lit so well when the background is so dar. Great pic! Jorge from WPB

The sneakers are just perfect...color, style.


Blogger n-mukai said ... (9:24 AM) : 

How adorable is he! I really love this one. The sneaks make it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:27 AM) : 

I am fairly new to this site but have gone through all the archives and viewed every single photo. I have enjoyed them all. But it is this photo which compelled me to write. There are no words to describe how much I love it. So, I'll just say thank you. Thank you Sir.


Blogger May Kasahara said ... (9:28 AM) : 

I love this photo - down to the green-glass bottle of sprite.

This is great. When are we going to see the Anderson & Sheppard update?


Blogger Delighted and Charmed said ... (9:44 AM) : 

I love the juxtaposition of the bow tie and the sneakers. It's amazing how a bow tie can "class up" an outfit.


Blogger patti said ... (9:45 AM) : 

hahah love it.


Blogger JFK Jean said ... (9:45 AM) : 

He's one of those "I'll dress however I like but still stylishly and I dare you to say something about it". I only disagree with the socks, he should have gave it some pop there


Blogger CW said ... (9:48 AM) : 

My personal preference would have been for socks that matched the suit, even with sneakers. Otherwise,this gent is very old school and in a good way.


Blogger demetric said ... (9:51 AM) : 

I can only hope that im this carefree yet smart when it comes to style when age has it way with me.

He's adorable! Chapeau, sir.


Blogger Link said ... (10:12 AM) : 

I don't think one should ever wear dark colored socks with white sneakers. This man's instincts were right on.


Blogger ahamill said ... (10:13 AM) : 

i only hope to be this effortlessly youthful when i'm his age. totally made me smile and i would love to know what they were talking about!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:19 AM) : 

Can a French man get away with this, where a woman could not? I just remember how Europeans used to mock New York women for wearing running shoes with office wear on the street... He looks impeccable in any case.


Blogger artadviser said ... (10:19 AM) : 

Pure style!


Blogger Laura [What I Like] said ... (10:21 AM) : 

My favorite image ever! The man looks mischievious with those shoes...


Blogger Tristan said ... (10:27 AM) : 

When he stands up those sneakers are going to look a slight too large. He could have gone with the slimmer/c taylors or dunlop volleys which would have streamlined the look.

I gotta stop criticising, its a good look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:27 AM) : 

I can't imagine that outfit being more perfect. Mind you, he has got a lot of character to wear it...

Love it! But i think he should try with blue navy socks... no?


Blogger Stefan said ... (10:46 AM) : 

usually I hate pairing white socks with anything but sneakers and athletic shorts. here, somehow, he pulls it off. it must be the attitude, carefree, casual, confident.

the white of the sneakers and socks ties back to the shirt and somehow provides a balance.

the best thing here is his laugh lines. they are GREAT

Blogger pulp+witticism said ... (11:21 AM) : 

I like a gentleman to look proper and crisp. Bow ties are lovely. As though he made an emotional note to dress nicely for others to enjoy. And the trainers, well, how else will you know of his humor?

I agree that you have to wear white socks with white tennis shoes. If you're pairing it with a dark suit, all the more daring!

Those sneakers are so great, any idea who makes them? I can only hope I will age as well as this guy.

I think the white socks make the crisp, clean sneakers stand out even more. Matching socks would have taken away from the contrast of the suit to casual shoe.

Blogger George Achebe said ... (1:17 PM) : 

NO NO NO. This man is tremendously well-attired from the ankle up. There is absolutely no excuse for pairing otherwise great sports pumps with a more formal-wear orientated look. It seems contrived rather than stylishly creative. Great photo though, and an otherwise charming-looking chap.


Blogger Raul said ... (1:21 PM) : 

Love the suit and the color of the shirt. Dig on the fact that he leaves the sleeve cuffs undone, even go as far as to say that the sneakers tie it in. The bow tie however, not a fan of it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:32 PM) : 

In response to Anonymous 10:19, I think the difference between running shoes in America and those worn in Europe, especially France, is that in France, with casual clothes, they tend to wear fine plimsolls, of a neat, streamlined, classic shape, so they look good with any kind of ensemble. Whereas hi-tech, chunky running shoes should only ever by worn when one is actually out for a run! This rule should apply on both sides of the Atlantic :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:38 PM) : 

love everything: the bow tie on a slightly creased blue shirt, navy-white shoes(i dont mind the sox, in a way they complete the look), facial expression!

Anonymous zuccotto said ... (2:04 PM) : 

I've often been nonplussed when people knock those wearing sneakers in the city, saying that sneakers ruin the outfit. As a start, they can be good for your feet when you trod a lot of concrete --
so, I'm enjoying a photo, great photo, showing a person wearing the sneakers well. I also don't mind the white socks, agreeing with the recent poster who said they balance with the shirt.


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

If I had the power--and I mean this in the most complimentary way--I'd turn this man to stone and seat him in my courtyard. Feeling blue or lonely or in need of a good giggle, I'd join him to share stories, secrets, a bottle of Sprite.

Go with what works for you.
Personally, if I was going to the trouble of picking a pocket square, tieing a bow tie, and wearing a tab collar (it looks like a tab collar to me) then I'd go the extra mile and pick a pair of matching socks and a proper pair of shoes.
But, if this is the way that he feels best, then rock on.


Blogger Fashion Speaks said ... (3:53 PM) : 

This is a remarkable shot. The gentleman is just so cool. He's fly, and I doibt that he would ever use that word to describe him self. But it seems so appropriate. Scott you did it again...

The reason this is so perfect is that he looks completely absorbed in his conversation and not thinking about how he looks at all.

he is so precious. i wish it were me on the opposite side of the table, having a sprite with him.

Don't agree with Tristan :
white socks work well with white sneakers ...those aren't tennis socks but probably white silk ones :-O

He looks like a gentleman that came in my store a couple of weeks ago...and he had a French accent !!

Don't you love when a single outfit can speak volumes about the person wearing it? I particularly like JFK Jean's comment about this man wearing what he likes--yet still maintaining impeccable style--and daring someone to question him. I love the personality in this.

I second JFK Jean that if he was going to have fun down there, his feet I mean, a wow sock color would have had more impact. Think Van Johnson and his red or was it pink? socks. I personally don't like the white sneakery shoes, but oh, well. He's really appealing in every other way.

Fantastic look and quite intimate picture. The total character has been captured. I like the balance of color from the socks to the pocket chief and shirt. I have seen a brand that matches ties with the socks which works really well. Award winning photography...congratulations!


Anonymous princess glee said ... (7:46 PM) : 

I like the tennis shoes with the suit. There's probably some really practical reason as to why. I hope not. I hope he made his decisions on what to wear out of pure desire.

I bet this gentleman is all about the finer things in life! He looks as though he is a man in the arts, maybe – a writer / a poet or maybe even a shoe repairman? You know those old school people that admire quality rather than quantity when it comes to everything. He has perfectly combined the classic suit which her wears so well – very French! And added a touch of modern – a little NYC! Also, at the first glimpse of this photograph I naturally assumed that he was holding a cigarette in his hand – it was his pose, his attitude the whole look – very French! And yet again we as the viewer are pleasantly surprised by the little green bottle on the table! Perfection!


Anonymous AW said ... (9:29 PM) : 

No, the socks shouldn't match the suit. Boring! My preference would have been for red, or for a navy with white or coloured polka dots.

As a regular bow tie wearer I am not surprised about seeing it. But it is the tie, the sneakers, and the suit taken together that speak volumes about this man's confidence and sense of knowing himself. Very inspiring. And Scott nailed the photograph, yet again, by capturing his impish grin. If you want a visual interpretation of the French phrase "joie d'vivre", well. this is it. Well done.

This guy illustrates how it takes a real man to wear a bow tie. Any sissy can wear a regular tie or no tie at all, but I can tell you from personal experience, when you walk into a garage full of grease-monkeys in coveralls and you're wearing a bow tie, everybody in the place knows who the boss is! The sneakers and white socks look great too.

Jacques from Toulouse, a great o in fashion retail.!! a real pro in fashion retail.


Blogger Tristan said ... (6:00 AM) : 

Dear Hat Lady,

Yes dark socks. But if that doesn't fly you can try no socks.

Why? Because i don't usually like pulling attention to the socks. Second when he stands, the hem of the trouser will crumple ontop of the sneaker because those are like pumps they aren't flat or thin enough for the trouser to fall over them seamlessly. Which is why i keep obsessing about chuck taylors.

Doesn't matter what we say though, because the most remarkable thing is he pulls it off in a very dashing and effortless manner. But my imagination keeps seeing dark socks and chuck taylors!

And you know what his smiling about?

I think I'm going to have to be the bad guy here... I like the sneakers-with-a-suit look, and I do agree that it probably means he's cool and has a fun personality, but as for the outfit itself, it just seems a little too contrived to me. It looks like he stood in front of his closet and thought for a long time trying to piece together a delightfully ironic outfit. If I found that he had a bunch of different suit-sneaker ensembles or that this was his daily uniform, I might feel differently, but...

Very nice picture, although I have to say that, in my mind, the sneakers spoil everything. A mon humble avis, ce monsieur, si charmant soit-il, a l'air d'un guignol...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:36 PM) : 

I think sneakers with a suit can look good, but the bow tie is what is throwing me off. I think a regular tie or no tie would have been better.

However, it's his confidence in the scene that is charming (and maybe even a little intimidating). You can see he's completely at ease being well-dressed and surrounded by what looks like more casually-dressed people.

This picture really captures a nice moment.

Great character, great smile, great style - wish I could go for a coffee with him and learn a thing or two

Hi Scott, I know I'm really late with this comment, but just wanted to say that this is my favourite shot of the year so far. Very inspiring.

Congrats on the Ossendriver interview by the way. I went to the men's store here in Paris the other day, and now I'm getting married in made-to-measure Lanvin!

Wonderful informal shot i have always loved the bow tie (papillon in french)
I like the fact that he has the lightness and humour to wear these trainers but feel its just a little too overworked and knowing would have prefered a soft suede loafer or a sebago classic ox blood.
But from the ankle up cant knock it..thats just the image you envisage sitting on the table next to you when you are taking your cafe creme non?
Sexy beast!

bow tie and sneakers? charming! and because his suit and tie are navy blue I can't help but wonder if the shirt is cambridge blue or white? Any opinions? (I'm convinced it's cambridge blue)
