Nice. Am a fan of buttons!


Blogger blue roses said ... (5:37 PM) : 

swathed in cold steel gray,
eyes of cold steel gray, yearning
for infinite ills.


Blogger Andrew said ... (5:41 PM) : 

Glad that buttons are of color bands, not music bands.


Blogger GINGER FASHION MONSTERS said ... (5:49 PM) : 

nice alternative to the usual duffle coat!


Blogger Fashion Agony said ... (5:49 PM) : 

Nice scarf!



Anonymous Andrew said ... (5:50 PM) : 

Simple, clean, wonderful. What shoes?


Anonymous trailmix said ... (5:56 PM) : 

I'd love to see this from behind, so I could be sure he's wearing his jacket backwards. The scarf gives it away for me.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:37 PM) : 

Interesting that he chose to add those colorful buttons to such a utilitarian jacket; can't be too monotone. and I love the way he tied his scarf

Back zip? Shoulder zip?? PULL-OVER??


Anonymous Mark said ... (12:48 AM) : 

Anyone else reminded of this?


Blogger jackie said ... (12:55 AM) : 

The colors and placement of the buttons are my fave part and what makes this look for me.


Anonymous Amy Creyer said ... (1:03 AM) : 

His buttons add just the right amount of personality to that coat.


Anonymous meenal @ maison marigold said ... (1:22 AM) :

Anonymous JMC said ... (1:22 AM) : 

Brutish silhouette, architecturally minimalist wafts.


Blogger Melissa Avila said ... (1:24 AM) : 

Mmm. There is something very sexy about him. The look in his eyes I think.


Anonymous SPEAKcreativity said ... (2:07 AM) : 

Love the simple colors, love the faded little polka dots on the scarf, and absolutely love the BUTTONS.

the buttons are so awesome and adds color to his greyish blue outfit!



Blogger La vuelve loca! said ... (3:19 AM) : 

Nice, he looks great!

Besos desde ♥ La ropa me vuelve loca!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:21 AM) : 

Never expected a man with such a gorgeous mien to fancy and be paired with a funky old Chairman Mao jacket, with veritable color wheel buttons to boot. Heart this, Sart!


Blogger ql said ... (4:32 AM) : 

is there a zipper on the back?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:35 AM) : 

he looks great! the buttons draws all the attention - but i love also the very simple forms. the jacket could look like a workers garment from china (but also other countries have this blue, padded cotton jackets with very few details for workers.) I'm guessing this young gentleman is an architect who went to china for a workshop and got inspired in other ways too...



Blogger Archie said ... (6:37 AM) : 

Duvet overshirt: A strong look


Blogger KC said ... (6:41 AM) : 

how can he carry that jacket? i'd look stupid if i wear it.


Blogger Анатолий said ... (6:59 AM) : 

This is Igor Garanin from Russian GQ and GQ-style editor?
You can see him in this photo or if you type "Игорь Гаранин" in google.


Blogger Stella said ... (7:26 AM) : 

Super cool. The jacket reminds me of those chinese quilted jackets. The trousers counter act the volume of the jacket, and the buttons add a nice splash of colour. Cosy and stylish.


Anonymous proletarian Great Gatsby said ... (7:27 AM) : 

I love grey.A revision of the man in the gray flannel suit.Easy,simple,classical and modern at the same time.


Blogger two four eight one nine said ... (8:36 AM) : 

So young and confident a man, that's what translates the outfit. Very attractive.


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

The buttons are very clever, and very easy to make. The jacket reminds me of a straight jacket...not a calming association.


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

what the...? i don't get it.


Anonymous marina said ... (11:19 AM) : 

this man is absolutely beautiful.


Anonymous Sam said ... (11:19 AM) : 

Very interesting coat, I don't think I've ever seen something like this before. Love the messy knot on the scarf and the colorful buttons!


Anonymous rachel said ... (11:32 AM) : 

While he's a nice-looking guy and I like the colors and textures, I agree with Anonymous 10:07--the straitjacket resemblance is a little alarming.


Anonymous grizzlesnort said ... (11:35 AM) : 

I like the jacket even though I agree with the duvet/ happy commune workers/ strait jacket associations.


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

the sweater is buttoned on the shoulder (on the right side). cool idea!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:14 PM) : 

i thought chef garb... not so morbidly strait jacket...

i like the happy buttons; it changes what it can be


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 PM) :

Blogger THE PURSE FORUM ADVISORY said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Love the buttons. Very under the radar but at the same time sends a message.

That's wiggity-wiggity whack, but he makes me wanna jump! Jump!

Nice to see russian mate here!


Blogger so not that girl said ... (5:29 PM) : 

And then there's Maude...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:14 PM) : 

Looks amazing. We often have very clear associations when it comes to military chic - think trench coats, epaulettes, etc. The above comments have shown that we do not usually conceive this outfit to fall in the same category. Some background on the jacket though may change this, esp. considering the fact that our street model seems to be Russian. This type of jacket (grey, beige, olive) was worn by certain types Russian soldiers, mainly rear-gunners in a bomber airplane or MG-crews in winter. Quite ironic that the colour of this jacket is Prussian-blue (Preussisch-Blau), thereby marrying former enemies into a peaceful entity. Quite brilliant outfit with more cultural/social implications than first meets the eye.


Blogger 1410 said ... (9:29 PM) : 

He reminds me of a Russian inmate


Blogger André said ... (9:35 PM) : 

Must try wrap my scarf like that.

Igor is a executive editor of russian GQ Style and also executive fashion editor of russian GQ.
And what about his jersey or it would be more correctly to call it cotton wadded pull-over? Usually prisoners wear it like a uniform. As we know uniform is a trend of lastest designers collection. So together with a help of a scarf and a few buttons "a la ralph lauren" it looks stylish. Igor reEnvented an alternative to a jacket and a coat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:44 PM) : 

Very Japanese! Honoring the fashion history in light of tragedy, love it.


Blogger Justin Ferré said ... (2:22 AM) : 

I remember reading some comments expressing their animosity towards Scott's coverage of the influx of new season shows. I ask for the said posters to redirect their attention from price tags and admire what's being produced at hand.

This silhouette bears a strong resemblance to that of Burberry Prorsum Menswear Autumn/Winter 2011-12 show. It's a perfect example of how one can draw inspiration from the lovely (and often unaffordable) designer brands and make it our own.

Being a student/part-timer, I am all too familiar with my financial constraints keeping the wares of the major fashion houses beyond my grasp. So I admire from afar. Reinterpret as I do. And relish in any fortune that comes my way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:58 AM) : 

where can you get those buttons - very paul smith lol


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:31 AM) : 

i'm with those comments
this is Igor Garanin, isn't he a breath of fresh air?

Is he wearing his coat backwards? I'm not really liking this look. It's very bland- nice buttons though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:25 PM) : 

This looks like a jacket worn in fencing matches. Could it be?


Anonymous manchester escorts said ... (8:40 PM) : 

Very japanesey! I like it - it's quirky.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:03 AM) : 

I think it looks a little silly honestly. But he's still cute and all.
