On the Street.....Ian 2.0, Manhattan

Comments on "On the Street.....Ian 2.0, Manhattan"


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (8:21 AM) : 

Wow! Great model, and great outfit! Notice how the jacket shoulders meet his natural shoulders, and the height of the shirt collar, quite possibly italian. I also like the pick stitching of the jacket (throughout, not just the lapels), although something makes me suspect it does not make a suit with the pants (the fly is not pick stitched. Blue is referenced obviously by the shirt, the pocket square, and the sweater. Love the Tank Cartier (vintage?) Really the only thing I am not fond of is the braided belt- I think it is too casual for anything other than shorts, but that's just biased me. Great picture also, I like how you were able to shade his right side of the head while keeping both sides of his body well lit so we can see the details. Jorge from W Palm Beach

what happened to all of the confidence and attitude in the last sighting of this man? beautiful jacket but all together conservative look.


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:25 AM) : 

This is one cleaaaaaan and sharp man. Look at the color pallet and how it compliements his skin. He is so...ok let me stop. Hmmmmmm....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:58 AM) : 

Great outfit! This is guy always seems to be totally on! Please keep shootig him when you can... would love to see him post style comments... he definately knows what going on!


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:02 AM) : 

Tan and blue is such a great combination - every time I go to Italy I see loads of guys wearing these colours together. That sweater styling is pretty Italianesque as well.

Interesting to see such a wide collar band with just one button - I think most UK shirts with a band like that would have 2 buttons instead.

And I love his glasses.

A really relaxed outfit.Everything is thought through but there is still space for the viewer to fullfill.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:34 AM) : 

Love the colours. LOVE.

Gorgeous! And I don't mean the clothes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:42 AM) : 

Accessories make or break: glasses, belt, watch do a lot of making here!


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

A smart relaxed man with wonderful glasses.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:01 AM) : 

I agree - colours are gorgeous! And I love his glasses! They're so unusual but somehow look don't look too strange.


Blogger Heather said ... (10:08 AM) : 

Wow, he made my heart stop for a second!

A nice way to start a Friday!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 AM) : 

Stunning, absolutley stunning . . (heavy sigh) . . .


Blogger alittlehoney said ... (10:49 AM) : 

oooh. he is fiiiiine.

love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 AM) : 

This is really nice.

It's also fresh because, yes, while it is a little bit conservative, it's not one of those looks that screams "I'm in the fashion world!" And I think that that is the difference between someone who is "fashionable" and someone who is truly stylish.

He wear it with ease but there are touches like the glasses, pocket square, belt and watch that tie everything in together. I am also not thinking that he bought everything for this one outfit, rather the ensemble looks like he just owns good quality clothes. Quality resonates over trend always.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 AM) : 

This is real style!

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

Great jacket. I can't figure out the type of fabric. The pick stitching and the working buttons on the sleeve make me think that it is high quality.
The pocket square adds flair. Using a patterned pocket square adds some nice flash when you are going for a casual look.
The high-collared shirt is great too. It looks like the button hole in the shirt collar is on a bias. Are my eyes playing tricks on me? Because if it is on a bias, that would be an interesting and an unusual detail.
I've never been a fan of the "sweater over shoulders" look. It strikes me as too pretentious.
He should visit his optician, because the arms on his eyeglasses are too short. The bend in the arm should not start before the arm reaches his ear. But, the tortise shell frames are really nice, and work perfectly with his outfit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:26 AM) : 

Not showy, just quietly wonderful. The details reveal themselves as you look closer, but don't overwhelmn the pleasing whole. I love those glasses. And his wry expression.


Blogger ricola said ... (11:35 AM) : 

I'm a big fan of blue and tan.


Blogger Tea Lady said ... (11:40 AM) : 

This guy has got it going ON! Sharp dresser. Wonderful colors.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:58 AM) : 

Possible to get the details of the wristwatch? The Roman numerals and rectangular shape are a nice finishing, complementary, touch.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:49 PM) : 

Other than blue, what colors work well with that dark sand? Is lavender acceptable?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:56 PM) : 

Yes, I love the blue/brown combination as well. It's works because of the energy between a cool and warm color. The stylish shirt is a nice counterpoint to the more conservative jacket. I would also prefer a
less casual belt but then perhaps it would then the look too perfect.

Notice that the jacket has working button holes too!

Anon: The watch is a Cartier "Tank" watch or an interpretation of one.

I really like the outfit. The colours suit him great. The only thing I cannot get over is how crumpled his suit looks. I personally prefer wool suits (need confirmation, but his looks like cotton) because they don't wrinkle up as much. But very nicely put together.


Blogger Syed said ... (1:07 PM) : 

Love the colours!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:18 PM) : 

If the watch band and the belt leather matched, I'd dare claim "perfection!" Not a fan of the sweater look, but it works on him.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:19 PM) : 

This is absolutely beautiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:25 PM) : 

oh my. i love everything about this. but especially: the glasses, the belt, the blue and brown, his hand hooked into his pants.
what a beauty.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:44 PM) : 

This is a man who has never been accused of "trying too hard". The pieces of his outfit aren't too overt; they're just subtle enough to make him stand out among the crowd. I especially enjoy the thumb-in-belt swagger.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:22 PM) : 

I agree, love the rich classic colors. Obviously a great taste level. It's hard to find fault with something that simply looks this good. That said, I'm trying to like the shirt collar, well, still trying. No doubt, a great looking guy.


Blogger HelloThere said ... (3:20 PM) : 

Oh my goodness! I can't believe I would see someone I actually knew! I remember Ian from waaaay back when he was still in Toronto (late 80's). He always had great style!


Blogger Janne said ... (3:33 PM) : 

The guy looks great, but the sweater on top of his shoulders made laugh; someone once commented that wearing your sweater like that is the equivalent to tieing your socks around your ankles...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:48 PM) : 

He's dreamy. Love the colors. Love the watch. Love love love.


Blogger Anniq said ... (5:24 PM) : 

as many people have said! love the details! the belt is amazing all in itself, the watch too! not your typical watch or belt but really make the outfit complete!


Blogger Brett Johnson said ... (5:27 PM) : 

He looks super comfortable, well fitting and high quality. I'll take it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:55 PM) : 

That is one brainy-lookin' dreamboat!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:02 PM) : 

His glasses and handkerchief are beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:51 PM) : 

What a handsome man! He is still confident, but how he looks so conservative too. I love the handkerchief in the pocket.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:42 PM) : 

THAT is class.


Blogger aviewaskew said ... (8:31 PM) : 

he wears his look well, such ease in the shot--with himself..his clothing...luv the hand placement. ...nice touch.


Blogger O!Lightning said ... (9:54 PM) : 

beautiful clothes flawlessly put together, but mostly, this man is devastaingly handsome, what confidance, what a spark!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:40 PM) : 

This is such a contrast with the previous photo of him! It tells a completely different story and has a completely different mood. It is something of a testament to the transformative power of clothes.

I suspect this fellow knows how to dress for any occasion, and has everything he needs in his closet!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 PM) : 

This gentleman has an eye for detail, the wristwatch, the handkerchief, the belt, the glasses.... everything compliments his look.

Note the comment on the so called "sweater look". I don't think that is a fashion statement so much as the fact that in some parts of the world like Milan or New York, this time of year it is cold in the morning and hot in the afternoon. Men will "wear" the sweater normally in the AM because it is cold outside, but once it gets to hot to actually wear it, they take it off a drape it over their shoulders.

This guy has his act together, the sweater certainly is placed that way because weather not fashion dicatated it


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:30 AM) : 

love him!! love his glasses!! I just got my dad to buy a pair that looked just like them!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:24 AM) : 

Khaki and blue - best color combination ever! This guy looks great, right down to the pocket square.


Blogger wideyed said ... (5:48 PM) : 

his handkerchief is amazIng. I would totally wear it as a headscarf if I knew it had never had a nose blown on it.

ok that was random


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

Three things make this great:

1) The P3 style tortoiseshell glasses
2) The pocket scarf
3) The Tan and Navy blue combo


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:59 PM) : 

This look would work equally on the boyfriend or the dad - timeless, classic, ageless.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:13 AM) : 

Nice but is not kind of hot for the sweater?


Blogger Milt-fresh_best-dressed said ... (12:37 AM) : 

sart I must say I love this guys eye for style. The three times i've seen this gentleman, Ian, appear on your blog, he's always been one of my favorites. He's one of the few conservative dressers who I really respect. Many who walk the road of conservative, can be at times very drab. However, this gentleman, knows how to do conservative with flair. and from other pics i've seen of him, he really knows how to go flashy as well!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:12 AM) : 

beautiful! the color of the skin around the apples of his cheeks and across his nose, that glowing honey brown, is so close to the color of highlight on his belt around the buckle...what rich, wonderful harmony! i am in love with all of the brown I see here.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:56 AM) : 

This guy could wear a garbage bag and look good,
he has the panache to carry anything off, and clearly he has taste to boot too!
Very cool look.


Blogger Baking With Plath said ... (10:12 AM) : 

Great outfit! I especially love his glasses.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:26 AM) : 

I'm in love w/ him. I really am. Do men like this really exist or is he some kind of mythical figure?


Blogger Diana said ... (11:00 AM) : 

It is really the same man? Unbelievable.
On the first photo he reminded me of Sean Comb and now is completely natural (but still very good looking). So natural, that I would surely never notice these great details on the street. But thanks God, we have you and you shows us.
Tell me, has he a very deep voice like Barry White?


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:00 AM) : 

Precisely, the buckle, the sweater, the handckerchief on the pocket makes that "italian" combination more than italian. Good for him ! :)


Blogger Berkley Magazine said ... (11:39 AM) : 

Once again an impressive outfit by Ian. Excellent choice of colours as well as glasses.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:17 AM) : 

Very few people understand round glasses and simply follow the trend, looking like dressed up hippies. This is how it should look. Really great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:05 AM) : 

This is a lovely outfit, he's just knocked it out of the ball-park. This is where you see that it pays to have money to spend on clothes. Everything is just right, the right glasses (fashionable but not too fashiony), the perfect pocket square, lovely watch and the great tan and blue combo. Just superb (I don't like the sweater on the shoulders though, but that's just me).



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:19 AM) : 

he is definitely put together very well, but so well that i wonder if the look threatens of contrivance. i'd like to see how the look holds up after a long day, but still, he's created an attractive combination of color and subtle textures. ~m.edwin


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:04 AM) : 

Great summer outfit everything is in harmony


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:20 AM) : 

Looks GOOD. I'm digging the outfit and him.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:51 AM) : 

Oh my hat I just realised now after scrolling down a bit to previous pictures that this is Ian, he whose picture from a few weeks back is one of the best I've ever seen on this blog. What a transformation! I loved this outfit before, but that kind of metamorphosis takes him to a new level! Where the hell is Vanity Fair and it's Best Dressed List?? This man knows whats what.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:38 AM) : 

I like the style. I have a wedding to attend and I might add a mixture of this into my outfit. The braided belt, brown watch, brown shoes.......


Blogger Sofia Koala said ... (5:00 AM) :
