On The Street.....Madras Pants, New York

It's a bold look. The simple white shirt and black tie contrast with the busy pants. Interesting look. I would prefer the pants to be a tad longer though.

Is Tom Hanks in New York?

I like his take on wearing madras trousers. As if he took off his suit trouser and threw these on (leaving on the shirt/tie and shoes). If it was not jeans, or old chinos, it was madras. Dressy/Casual.

Hmmm, I'm not sure of the black shoes. Perhaps loafers instead?

It looks hideous and really, really great at the same time. Madras is, apparently, the big trend this summer. I wonder if he'd be wearing them if this weren't the case? No matter, he's a sight to behold.

madras no more...old navy has colonized these guys for summer and soon you won't be able to bear the sight of them.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:43 PM) : 

it definitely takes coconuts to step out like that - and I respect him for it.

Woah, those trousers ... I think they're giving me a panic attack.

Looks like Army camouflage to me.

I'm withholding comment until I see the pattern of his tie.

This guy pulls off madras without even a wiff of Old Navy or J.Crew. Quite amazing, really.


Blogger SportyChick said ... (4:03 PM) : 

So Madras is "the big trend this summer?" Haven't these been around forever? I remember from the 80s in Boston. Either way, love 'em - in the same category as seersucker.

For some reason I feel like he is channeling Bruce Willis and it is frightening me. Bruce is a tough dude, but when paired with Madras, let's just say I'm not "die hard" for this look.

I am not sure about this one. If he had paint splattered all over the madras pans, wore a man's t-shirt, and SoHo painter's boots, I might like them more...but then, I don't hate the look, either.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:31 PM) : 

the pants are wearing him, not the other way round.


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

whoa, that's quite a look. just wish he would loosen his belt a teeny bit.


Blogger Mike Paget said ... (7:25 PM) : 

Anon nailed it when he said Old Navy has landed. However this guy is still enough ahead of the curve to pull it off, and it's pants, not a poorly fit short sleeve button up. Fresh.


Blogger EMNH said ... (8:49 PM) : 

That's it...I'm digging out my copy of " The Official Preppy Handbook". This ain''t no party, this ain't no disco ...this ain't no foolin' around.

Ralph Lauren's... I love it!!! What a lesson of style and bolderness. A man who dare with those pants has a great personalyty. Congratulations.

ok, i am really mad about the old navy thing. i've been rocking madras in unexpected ways for the past 10 yrs. i was wearing a pair of brown/green madras widelegged drawstring pants when i met my husband. lucky, lucky. that said, i agree with what this guy is doing with his. it's stuffy and casual at the same time. he probably makes watches or something.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:15 PM) : 

The guy looks a little uptight to be wearing them. I see madras as a more relaxed preppy look. its interesting though but not my taste or style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:11 AM) : 

Looks like all business on the top and a party on the bottom.


No, no no


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:27 PM) : 

Same as the popped collar. Some people can do it and others look foolish. I agree, madras are more casual and laid-back. That shirt buttoned to the top and the thin black tie are far too formal. Couple madras pants with Sperry Topsiders and a Ralph Lauren polo. Depending on the series (Blake, Regeant, Classic, Oxford or Yarmouth) a Ralph Lauren button-down will compliment very well.

Very daring - I wonder how this outfit would work in it entirety (with coat). Looks amusing and witty, as a corruption of a conventional suit. Well done.
