This gentleman is living that look.

The look ...high water pants is what i see .....I really do ...perhaps someone can shed some light on that for me.
His clothes look very well cared for and the colors are beautiful they are my one of my favorite palettes.
PS THANK YOU ANONYMOUS for the feed back regarding the ticket pocket jackets....I know I really want one ....will see how it goes


Blogger 'signorina' said ... (6:01 PM) : 

He sure is!

The bomber jacket can be hard to pull off with turning into Harry-High-Pants...


Blogger Butch said ... (6:15 PM) : 

Indeed--living that look in DEPTH. And width, of the pants, that is.

He's very 30s-film-musical-boy-choreographer; can't say that the billowing high-waisted trousers and short, snug jacket do much for his sex appeal, though...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:29 PM) : 

Funny thing is, what he's wearing is coming back in fashion but I don't think he's ever left this look. Pleats are looking fresh to me again. Very Gene Kelly. Hmmmm....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:45 PM) : 

this is just my personal opinion, but i think trousers with that cut and that waist should break AT LEAST once on the shoes...i think the current hem just looks a bit awkward


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:57 PM) : 

Monochrome. Oh my...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:33 PM) : 

What is the look he's living in?? He reminds me of one of...oh dear, never mind.

It's simply not a style that would turn my head.



Blogger RoseAG said ... (8:55 PM) : 

I like that color of brown. It's so warm.

I could go for a hat with this.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:22 PM) : 

John Waters, right?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 PM) : 

The jacket is fine, but OMG, where to start with those pants. The dude is obviously loving life, and I'm sorry to rain on his parade, but there you have it.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:46 PM) : 

That is sexual.


Blogger DK said ... (9:52 PM) : 

I can't say pleats were ever gone. Maybe two pleats are a bit my-daddyish, but one pleat is ok if that's your thing. But I agree with Anon 645pm, the pants should break at least once.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:59 PM) : 

No, Gene Kelly never looked like this guy. I'm not sure if anyone ever looked like this guy, but it was not a good look in 1940 and it is not a good look today. Scott, I'm trying to put this gently but have you been getting enough sleep...?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:15 PM) : 

i have a problem with this look because wearing everything vintage looks like a costume. there's nothing wrong with any of these pieces, but worn together like this makes him look a bit, shall we say, eccentric, but not necessarily in the best sense of the word. someone else here said it -- you see him and wonder where he is in his head, but aren't entirely sure you'd want to go there yourself.


Blogger positive_negative said ... (12:10 AM) : 

Wow, for the first time I'm speechless here.


Blogger truck51 said ... (1:07 AM) : 

Well, the pants are part of that new Thom Browne look, are they not? That's how they're described in December GQ in a piece about Browne's impact on men's clothes. Me, I'll stay with a break no matter how "in" flood pants become.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:47 AM) : 

I want his pants to be longer, and turned up just once, please. That would complete the thirties/fourties look.


Blogger Milton T said ... (9:41 AM) : 

Very elegant.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:45 AM) : 

ya know - if you drive over to Jersey, to the older fringe areas of Newark, Trenton, even AC, you'll see a myriad guys wearing that look ... except for them it's not a look, it's their clothes ....


Blogger Ana said ... (11:15 AM) : 

Those pants so perfectly neat, remind me of my father dressing like Gardel, the tango artist.
When fashion dreams in dejavú, it's kind of scary.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:33 AM) : 

I don´t know what to say. I don´t like it all, but if he is. go for it.


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

This look is definitely not my cup of tea, however I do congratulate this guy on exuding so much personal style. He looks so much more distinct and interesting than the mindless masses who throw on "whatever" in the morning.


Blogger marie said ... (1:07 PM) : 

He is wearing long socks underneath...I hope.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:12 PM) : 

He reminds me of a young Joel Gray.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:31 PM) : 

Wow, neat look. Is that Howard Hughes?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:44 PM) : 

maybe his suspenders are on a little too tight? :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:41 PM) : 

the whole look makes him look very ... Hannibal Lecter. For most of us, I imagine that is not a good thing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:20 AM) : 

Strange glance..I don't know why, but he makes me think of Truman Capote...


Blogger Georgiana said ... (2:27 AM) : 

Oh, if only he had a scarf! Fred Astaire would have had a scarf.


Blogger Poised over London said ... (3:31 AM) : 

Interesting how the huge belt bridges the bomber and the high-waisted trousers. But yes please, 2" more inseam.


Blogger Zaydoun said ... (7:54 AM) : 

If there's one thing that gets on my nerves is a shirt buttoned all the way up for no reason since he's not wearing a tie.

And the pants are too short and billowy


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:45 AM) : 

Its Members Only meets Gene Kelly. ugh.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:10 PM) : 

too precise....literally not a hair out of place.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:47 PM) : 

The year is 1951, New York is mostly set in black and white in the early post-war years. Men out of school were finding their first jobs at Saks Fifth Avenue or maybe taking classes at the Art Students League. I wonder if this young man is reading a Dawn Powell novel and going to see this new guy, Jackson Pollack? Great look well executed.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:55 AM) : 

oooh, dawn powell...great reference.


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

So, are pleats back? Wait..they are never out of style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:24 PM) : 

Wow! I'm pretty sure that's the lead singer of a band called Susquehanna Industrial Tool & Die Co. ( He is *totally* living that look and his band defines it as well. They transport you to another era ... amazing...


Blogger Michelle said ... (11:12 AM) : 

I would invite you to look at the image in this link:

Pants breaking over the shoe is a relatively recent stylistic trend. In the 1940's, pants were hemmed above the top of the shoe, they did not break.

This man is pure in his vintage style.


Blogger abby jenkins said ... (6:37 PM) : 

That is the lead singer of Sit and Die Co! They plaid at our wedding! That cat has serious style...and chops.
