On the Street......Denim Pants, Sydney

I love the idea of denim pants - especially if they are as well done as these.

Perfectly done, with a touch of classic!!!!! :)

That's again a sample of successful roll-up))) Perfect balance of light blue and dark blue with the beard matching the colour of the belt and shoes)) I belive his expensive watch gives away his casual look)

Unfortunately, not a type of man one might often run into in Moscow((

such a gorgeous shot. the colors and textures ...beautiful.

This brings to mind Tomas Maier's Bottega Veneta from a couple of seasons ago, except that his denim pants were not pleated. I think you have to look at what your fabric can do- in this case, denim looks better, or more classic at least, with a flat front. I like this example because everything fits well, and a gorgeous background and lighting. Jorge from WPB

so effortless and chic.

I do like the complimentary colours, though. It's so well put together - even matching hair. The rolled up jeans just epitomise real Sydney style for me, it's at the same time fashion conscious, neat and casual.

Part French dustbin man, part architect, part 40's test driver.

All good.

Argghh jeans with pleats??

I appreciate that you're now going back to writing something along with your pictures.


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

nice overall look, a simply can't get behind pleated denim though.


Blogger S.I.Q. said ... (11:39 AM) : 

great style!! i love to see men with such nice style!

-make your own shoes
-best current model


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:04 PM) : 

Great mix of diff. shades of denim. I like it!!

Sart, when are you in Helsinki this summer?


Blogger Brian said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Reverse pleated denim pants really demand a Members Only jacket and white-framed Cats Eye sunglasses to complete the look...


Blogger Gary K. said ... (12:11 PM) : 

Not feeling the love for this. Denim pants were popular in the 70s and I never saw one I liked. I don't like this one either. Maybe I'm too much of a purist, but "denim pants" should mean "jeans," in my book.


Blogger Honeygo Beasley said ... (12:23 PM) : 

Soft macho.

PS Did you see the Sundance channel showing of Marc Jacobs behind the scenes? It was excellent...the color steps posts reminded me of that show.


Blogger diane said ... (12:27 PM) : 

Hi Scott, I've been away, so I haven't been commenting lately, please excuse. But I really am so happy to see such a refreshing looking dude. I'd invite him to one of our BBQ's, he looks nice. xo

Mmm so perfect.


Blogger BobKentNoVa said ... (1:11 PM) : 

He appears to be wearing brown wing-tips. If my perception is correct, this totally completes the look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:14 PM) : 

Know anyone the brand of the jeans?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:17 PM) : 



Blogger Samantha said ... (1:26 PM) : 

I love this! I also want to buy this man a beer. (I think he would like a James Squire, perhaps a Golden Ale?)

I hate the idea of jeans-as-pants but he pulls it off so well. I am impressed!


Blogger sspeier said ... (1:31 PM) : 

Ah yes, denim PANTS. AKA JEANS?

just kidding.

Blogger Hanna Persson said ... (2:07 PM) : 

it's a great idea any day, both confy and stylish at the same time.

I love the classic look with the special touch in the pants. It's great!

Nice blog.

Surely they are trousers, Sart...!

Great shot - love the light.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:41 PM) : 

He's beautiful.


Blogger Stefan said ... (4:02 PM) : 

Seriously though, what is the cutoff between denim pants and jeans? I see that these are not traditional jeans... is it a fabric-thickness issue? Is it the pleats?


Blogger Jazzbuff630 said ... (4:37 PM) : 

I would love some trousers like these for "casual Friday"


Blogger Dannie said ... (4:38 PM) : 

he looks great...
sooo simple yet regal


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:42 PM) : 

i love the rolled up hem, and the shop in the background!

He's like a little slice of Scandinavia in Darlinghurst...

yay for Aesop there in the background!!!!


Anonymous Denimosity said ... (9:19 PM) : 

Are those jeans teamed with a pale denim shirt? If so, this is perhaps the only man in history to get away with double denim.



Anonymous Misha said ... (9:24 PM) : 

The difference between jeans and trousers (for those who protest) is essentially in the construction. The key point is that they are made with a yoke on the rear and will generally have five pockets (the back ones being patch). Also, usually will have the strengthened doubled over seam on the inside leg, and not (as with these trousers) pleats. They do not necessarilly have to be denim though! e.g. corduroy jeans.

On a side, recently saw a picture of what was described as a Canadian Suit. It was a slim three button denim deconstructed suit, looked great on the guy wearing it (shabby chic beardy kind of look). Anyone else seen these or know where I could get one?


Blogger E(ileen) said ... (9:30 PM) : 

Oh Paddington, how I love thee. He looks great but I think a big part of it is his hair -- ginger, scruffy, and facial hair. If he was dark-haired and clean-cut the look would have been very different, no?


Anonymous VJB3 said ... (12:14 AM) : 

Sometimes high end labels make jeans that are just plain ugly. These, however, are exquisite. Good Spot!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:24 AM) : 

Regardless of what people seem to be saying.
This is a great look because he can pull it off.
There is absolutely no flaw in his sense of style to achieve this look.
The brown of the shoes and belt compliment the blues so well! If he were wearing black shoes and such, it wouldn't have looked half as brilliant as it does.

Nice spotting dear Sart!


Blogger Stratos Bacalis said ... (4:18 AM) : 

Love the whole look apart from the roll ups - it killes the chic-ness in it


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:58 AM) : 

aren't denim pants jeans?
is there a difference?


Blogger Gwen said ... (7:36 AM) : 

Nice understated look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:02 AM) : 

Reverse pleated denim pants?!
Give me a break...


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (4:21 PM) : 

It´s all about the belt.


Anonymous Jim Thompson said ... (6:17 PM) : 


The shot is actually of me.

The pants are in a lightweight cross hatch denim and are from my label "Three Over One". The collection is heavily inspired by a working mans wardrobe of the 1930s and 40s. It is available in selected retailers in Australia but I hope to distribute it further in the future.

Take a look at my website or contact +61-2-9360-3609 for stockist details.




Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:15 PM) : 

The pants are too baggy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:29 AM) : 

I know the look, Jim. Your historical references are timely! Impeccable pants. I'd like to see more Australian men wearing your self aware expression, too! (Both facial and sartorial..)

Good luck.


Blogger Leo said ... (2:06 PM) : 

To Jim Thompson,

I'm kind of a watch addict, so I was just wondering: What kind of watch are you wearing?

Appreciate the info


Blogger jackhonky said ... (6:50 PM) : 

i personally dislike both pleats and denim pants. yet i appreciate this look on him. The references to the 30's and 40's working man are spot on, and the rolled cuffs of the pants and shirt give the right amount of insouciance befitting the historical homage.

it's also helps that Jim is easy on the eyes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:40 AM) : 

Great shot of you Jim!
You are a man I often have a beer with...and have perfectly personified what Three Over One is all about.
Well done to my friend, now international hearthrob it seems. SB xx

very GQ


Blogger Clarity said ... (4:04 AM) : 

Probably one of the coolest looking people I have ever seen. He looks as laid back as the title character of "The Old Man and The Sea"


Blogger Sarah said ... (1:49 PM) : 

Denim pants always create a polished-meets-classic casual look. Beautiful shot.


Blogger Lucy said ... (1:00 AM) : 

Sigh. I just love his stance which goes so well with the clothes - strong, unpretentious, comfortable.

That is totally porn for smart women (and men with good taste). Thank you.


Blogger travelbug said ... (2:17 AM) : 

First time the damn roll-up cuffs look masculine.


Anonymous marcus said ... (9:02 AM) : 

hello sartorialists,
last week i got following email from italy:


first i didn´t know what does my new client mean. he introduced me to your blog.

congratulations !


Anonymous Edward said ... (10:47 AM) : 

I am so glad 3/1 caught some attention here Jim. Good work mate.


Blogger Ted said ... (12:57 PM) : 

This goes to show that no matter what is in fashion at the moment, pleats or not, baggy or not, if you wear it with confidence it will look great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:03 PM) : 

This blog is about style, not fashion, there is an enormous difference.

Jim, your look is fabulous. Would love to see more of this style. Heads up also to Aesop. I work at the Paris Aesop and wish it were as cool as this Sydney one.

I've got to admit the overall look wouldn't be as successful were Jim not so adorable with his stance and laid back attitude! Hat off to both Jim and The Sartorialist!

a truly manly style, so sexy!
