On the Street.....Silver & Grey, Manhattan

Comments on "On the Street.....Silver & Grey, Manhattan"

Clean lines, beautiful colour scheme and warmth...perfecto.


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (9:16 AM) : 

Beautiful shot, Scott! I like this young gentleman's scarf and three-button, glenplaid sport coat. These items go well with his hair. Note the tortoiseshell specs in the breast pocket. I wonder why one hand is ungloved? This guy looks like Peter Brimelow.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:39 AM) : 

his cuff seems to be on an angle. has anyone seen this before?


Blogger onegiantpanda said ... (9:52 AM) : 

That's a great one. I think I'll probably be quite happy once my hair starts going grey - as long as it doesn't all fall out first.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:28 AM) : 

Yeah I noticed the cuff at an angle as well--I think it looks pretty cool! He looks so handsome & well put together.

Why do i find laguna beach trad's comments so weird?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:59 AM) : 

Please find out and report who does the jacket. Great natural shoulder.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:07 PM) : 

i LOVE the tweed jacket (and the gray hair) along with the scarf and gloves... my daily uniform (well, not always tweed)l.

i do feel the jacket is a bit baggy. i think having it brought in at the waste would do wonders for the silhouette.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:37 PM) : 

I also noticed the angled cuff. I too am wondering if this is deliberate or if he needed the sleeves shortened but didn't want to mess with the buttons, hence the angled cuff.

love the cuff cut at an angle. i think Alexandre Plokhov for Cloak use to do that. gives it a goth feel without being so literal. very nice.


Blogger The Spicers said ... (1:20 PM) : 

YUM! Love the plethora of grays, from the silver mane to the glen plaid to the charcoal scarf. And I'm a sucker for a cleft chin!


Blogger Johanna said ... (1:27 PM) : 

What a handsome, sophisticated-looking man -- wish we had more like him here in DC!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:22 PM) : 

Mmmmm Silver Fox...and his clothes compliment it perfectly.


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (5:42 PM) : 

I like this. this reminds me of that earlier shot you took in Paris(?) of the woman with the long very red hair wearing a jacket in this similar vain.

two completely different looks but the contrast of the grey jacket and the hair color was striking.


Blogger MensFlair said ... (8:42 PM) : 

Is this 'all in navy' guy from few weeks ago... We suspected it then, but now we know it: he's the master of matching!


Blogger Tom said ... (10:21 PM) : 

He owns grey hair. He shall hence forth be known as: The silver fox


Blogger Seattle Bites said ... (5:18 AM) : 

I love all the textures and details he has going on. The white stitching on his gloves and I like how he has the a darker colour close to his face. really nicely pulled together and timeless.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:21 AM) : 

Elegant, but is not to dark ?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:43 AM) : 

He is my long-lost brother, bless you for finding him for me. Now I´ll take off my tortoise-shell framed glasses, brush my silver page cut hair and slip into my tweed cape - oh, not to forget the scarf and black woollen skirt. Brown suede boots, or perhaps the black ones today. Hugs and kisses!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:07 AM) : 

my guess is he took off a glove to remove his glasses for the photo, or to put something else (his mobile?) in his jacket pocket (looks like something bulky is in there.) I bet the jacket is RL... just guessing from the buttons and the purple over-pane on the plaid. I love the angled cuffs -- am noticing this more and more on well considered tailoring. great photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:06 PM) : 

Does anyone else get fed up with the orthodoxy of this way of tying a scarf? Remember when people used to just wrap a scarf around the neck? This way looks too preppy perfect.

Because he IS weird. You'd have to visit Laguna Beach to understand.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:44 PM) :

Personally I like his comments.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:59 PM) : 

the jacket is ralph lauren- he is a designer there


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:55 PM) : 

He looks very handsome, neat and put together in a way you can tell he's comfortable with himself


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:10 AM) : 

If you're going to wear a sack suit, that's the way to do it. Since there's no darting in the front to give it shape there, taking in the waist would be at odds with the jacket's cut.

Not every jacket needs to have a lot of shape to make the wearer look good. This one has a very nice drape to it, thanks to the cloth. The effect is obvious on the right side of his jacket, between his bottom button and pocket flap. So many sack suits are made of bad cloth and don't hang right.

My favorite things in this photo are: (1) his hair, (2) the fit of the shoulders, and (3) the relatively high gorge of the lapels. Take away any of those things, and nothing else matters.

It's like Helmut Lang meets Trad.

That being said, I wouldn't wear this. It's too drab. The littany of gray is unimaginative.

The sleeves are too long, and normally I'd say the jacket hem as well, but it works here as a quasi-coat.


Blogger Asi Mod said ... (3:50 PM) : 

Classy gentlemen here. I love his silver hair and the jacket.


Blogger UESman said ... (7:07 PM) : 

I don't mind the absence of a pocket square so much. But if I was going to plan my color combos like that, I probably would stuff one in my breast pocket for good measure.
What I particularly like, however is the amount his jacket has been broken in and even looks a bit fuzzy and frayed on the edges. I hope all my sport jackets look like that (or even more worn than that one day.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:57 AM) : 

such a sweet guy, and always looking perfect while working hard for unlce ralph :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:20 PM) : 

If it's chilly wear a jacket.
If it's cold add an overcoat.
If it's very cold add scarf and gloves.

This combination of items is awful.

You have shot this same man, wearing this same jacket, once before. The title was something like "perfect casual friday". I have it in my personal archive of Sartorialist favorites but don't have time to track it down on the site - maybe you have an easier way?


Blogger Rebecca V. O'Neal said ... (9:25 AM) : 

I fell in love with his hair on your Nov 9th post "On the Street....Sleek & Chic in Navy, Manhattan".

Impeccably dressed yet again.
Voluminous hair.

love it.


Blogger Rebecca V. O'Neal said ... (9:26 AM) : 

Mr. LG, i suspect.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:57 AM) : 

Très bel veste s'efface pr le mettre encore plus en valeur


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:21 AM) : 

Larry Gordon works for Ralph Lauren. And he is wearing a Polo Jacket.


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

très belle veste :) j'ai surtout admiré la couleur et la perfection des lignes parallèles :)


Blogger leafy lady said ... (9:10 AM) : 

Oh lovely, i love this man's look from his prince of wales blazer to his piercing blues eyes.
the color palette is minimal, yet very rich.
oh and i like the glasses peeking out of his pocket, hehe.
très dapper.
