On the Street.....Bryant Park, NYC

Comments on "On the Street.....Bryant Park, NYC"

once more a pic of the series
" two-in-one" . :)

1. Hello cutie! You are a beautiful man. No worries. Great hair!
2. I love the super-descreet way you wear your scarf under your collar.
3. Rolled up trousers + shoes + bracelets + two different bags... the lower part of you looks like a bagpacker coming home from a beach-trip.
4. But it looks like you´re comfortable with it and that´s the most important thing.

Greetings from far away!

Love those blues - i feel relaxed and happy just looking at them. I like the way he plays off the vibrant turquoise with a conservative top half, and the dotted neckerchief just visible.


Blogger rena noble said ... (8:14 AM) : 

love, love, love that backpack!


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (8:17 AM) : 

For me, the key things when picking a cardigan, are a tigh fit (high armholes and slim body) and buttons that match the color of the sweater and don't stand out. I think the buttons on his cardi are a bit grandfatherly. I pretty much like everything else since it seems to fit, and it sticks to the oh-so-classic khaki and blue palette. I would lose the backpack and trade it for another tote, if he must. How many articles are out there on how backpacks are not hot??? Jorge from W Palm Beach


Blogger said ... (8:22 AM) : 

Nice layering with the shirt sleeves turned over the cardi-cuffs. Cute.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 AM) : 

Damn i wanted those acne pants. Hard to find them anywhere.


Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (8:28 AM) : 

I like the touch of a scarf and the way he's wearing it. The top half is very classically inspired, and all looks good to me. The pants and shoes being more casual and the pants brightly colored may prevent a totally unified look but they don't detract from his overall style. Nice bags, too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:32 AM) : 

Jorge, I usually agree with your comments, but not the buttons... on a summer cardigan a contrasting (more usually white/light/mop) button gives it a fresher look.

Like the bashed up look of the driving shoes, but they look too wide; don't have that slim feel of Italy's finest...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:39 AM) : 

bright blue pants are amazing


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:51 AM) : 

Am I the only one who thinks this looks like pajamas?


Blogger peachey said ... (8:56 AM) : 

not many could wear those pants well, but it's done oh so effortlessly here.


Blogger Emme A said ... (9:14 AM) : 

So what?
Turquoise has always been a color that I hate. This is not going to make me change my mind...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:15 AM) : 

The tonal quality of all of the blues really add something whimsical to the look, like he may have rolled out of bed and right into new york fashion week. somehow with all the bags, the droopy shoes seem to work. fabulous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:34 AM) : 

the shoes make him look very stumpy.
it doesnt help that the pants cuts his legs off at such an awkward way.
honestly, i never got the entire rolled-up cuff thing.


Blogger amanda flagg said ... (9:35 AM) : 


does anyone have an idea who makes that backpack? i love it so much.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:54 AM) : 

Can someone explain the pants rolling thing to me? Especially rolling jeans over oxfords.

I want to like it, and do on some guys, but can't get comfortable with it.


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

The part is the polka dot scarf !
Shoes, hmm, i would have gone for espadrilles.


Blogger Michael Joseph Owens said ... (10:25 AM) : 

Agree with Catrina. The discreet scarf is fantastic. Just the right degree of accessory. And the bag in his right hand is fantastic. Any idea where I can find one like it!


Blogger norawoah said ... (10:35 AM) : 

sky blue pants!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:43 AM) : 

i love the composition but i think there is a bit of 'too-many-trends-in-one-outfit' here. the rolled pants, the shoes, the cardigan and the tucked scarf. i know that style is personal but this outfit is not for me. he looks good but it's too much for me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:54 AM) : 

I'm surprised by the amount of positive feedback this look has received. Was this a test that most everyone just failed?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:06 AM) : 

love him love his style. was hoping that was a heavy metal necklace, but it's a scarf. nonetheless, he's got it. great proportions. great colors. nice casual "what, this?" look. so tired of people trying too hard. posh, for example.


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

very, very lovely. the trousers alone are beautifully worn, and what a lovely face.


Blogger jkh said ... (11:56 AM) : 

i need those pants. - in fine corduroy.


Blogger Fabio Bucciardini said ... (12:02 PM) : 

Mi piace. The look , the mix and the attitude. The pants probably come from vintage or uncle wardrobe but look almost.. perfect. vote 9/10


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:07 PM) : 

The colors are good, the pieces are good, but with everything untucked and hanging out, that slack-shouldered pose and bulky bags hanging down like shopping bags, it all looks like (sorry guy model) frumpy housewife. If he tucked in his shirt and stood up straight, you might have something.


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

what's with the nasty old shoes?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:26 PM) : 

Remember as a kid when you got that candy bar and it had all that beautiful wrapper with all those colors and you started to open it so very slowly, licking your fingers cause you got some sweet on them and anticipating how delicious it's going to be once in your mouth! I kind of feel that way right now.


Blogger The Spicers said ... (12:36 PM) : 

Love this look on a man or a woman. The pants color is just right with the dark cardigan.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:54 PM) : 

I would kill for those pants. Thanks for this!


Blogger Cassaundra said ... (1:02 PM) : 

Love the backpack. G
reat color combo on the outfit. It seems it's backwards or something, like the pants would usually be the color of the shirt and the sweater would be the color of the pants.
Do you know what I'm saying?
I think it looks dope.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:40 PM) : 

This look gives me a sense of an all-American look...STREET STYLE. I like the cardigan its appropriate for his age, and doesn't appear to be "grandfatherly," as "Jorge W from Palm Beach" puts it. Clearly there's potential in this trio piece and this guy was certainly able to pull it off. Although, I do wish the bright blue corduroy pants were actually bright yellow and at knee length and that he should loose the bookbag and if possible but not necessary carry a luggage bag instead of the tote he's carrying, and he should wear better moccasins or he could wear crocs, whatever works for him. am i "knit-picking," too much? sorry. but all together it's a clever look. ^^


Blogger hemoglobin said ... (2:11 PM) : 

i love the way he's carried off the blues!!!
and the trousers are my favorite!!he carries them so flawlessly .
not for a second did i think there was something odd about them ....
the whole looks is boyishly masculine ~~ WITH turquoise trousers~~
very cool indeed~~


Blogger Miguel said ... (2:35 PM) : 

Young guy, so everything works for him, but... why those pants doesn´t fit him. I love the cardigan and the shirt, the scarf, great touch, but his shoes are not clean, and all those bags? will be better and more confortable just to have one big bag. Anyway, that´s NYC growing and growing and trying and trying... that´s the difference and what it make so cool to watch people around the world, By the way... LOVE THIS BLOG Sart!!!

I love it; - does someone know where is the herringbone rucksack from? Also like the bold colour of the trousers


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:27 PM) : 

I have been to a few fashion labels head office to see the spring summer ranges for 2009 and colored jeans are one of the many trends being followed.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:13 PM) : 

Unkempt, messy, carrying way too much stuff. Thin is nice. I'm surprised this studied look doesn't also have the sweater misbuttoned. He's cute and young, and maybe this is a look for only the cute and young, but he's not a fashion plate.


Blogger eric said ... (5:13 PM) : 

like the material on his backpack.


Blogger Michael J Murphy said ... (5:35 PM) : 

The color of the pants is a bit saturated for me but otherwise I love the look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:04 PM) : 

Everything looks stolen from the waist down on this it was not intended for him originally--HB.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:06 PM) : 

yes, the model is adorable.
yes, lots about his look works well.
but- where does one wear this? To the library? A lecture?


Blogger Teena Vallerine said ... (6:32 PM) : 

Standing proof that the bigger your handbag, the more stuff you find yourself lugging around! Time for a downsize methinks! t.x


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:09 PM) : 

I love this! I just love it when somebody can take what is typically structured and break it down into a relaxed, almost dishevelled chic. I also like his colour balance as well.
He looks relaxed and he has a general sense of calm, in what I am sure was quite a hectic moment.


Blogger Andy said ... (7:32 PM) : 

I think that's a J.Crew cardigan, and I wore it yesterday. Cool pants!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:37 PM) : 

I totally thought this was a woman. In a good way!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:52 PM) : 

Nerd chic?


Blogger "Eddie in the corner" said ... (8:52 PM) : 

Think the hidden buttons of the shirt are a subtle but beneficial element, (especially in light of the cardigan button discussion)
Everything else ( 'cept maybe the backpack) feels right-on. Kewl without overkill. Bracelets, scarf (?) could be too much, but on this kid they aren't.
Looks good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:41 PM) : 

everyone seems to be saying how parts of his outfit are not fashionable or hot. i think that what makes the outfit so great.
he's comfortable in it and manages to pull it off and look very stylish, even if the trend-slaves, and i am exaggerating there, don't agree.

it's just his own style.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (10:26 PM) : 

i'd marry her...only for the dress + red/blue belt


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:47 PM) : 

He looks good. Why doesn't my husband when he dons a cardigan? Mysteries abound.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:52 PM) : 

any ideas on who makes the backpack?


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

great looking young man. comfortable, relaxed style. works. doing his own thing. what it's all about. great bookbag from italy. Great neckwear touch. Is he a designer or model?


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

I love those pants so much and how he cuffed them (he did it to look cool, and he does-period). As an aside, I cannot believe someone commented on this blog that he should wear crocs! The worse item of footwear invented in the last three decades?! Are you sure you're on the right blog?



Blogger junglesiren said ... (2:53 AM) : 

Not a bad look. I like the combination of elements, the colors. The pants could fit him better. I'm sure they give him a concave booty . Pants this loose on skinny guys tend to do that. It seems big with teens but really anti-sexy. I'm not crazy about the rolled-up hems either unless he's at the beach.

I bet the scarf (if that's what is peaking out from his collar) would look great and add more to the outfit if it were more visible. I also like his other accessories, bags (though I don't care for them together), bracelets, shoes, wan and irritated expression.


Blogger magstermash said ... (9:01 AM) : 

His stance had me laughing at first--to me, it's like he's trying to be patient but he's annoyed with you stopping him to take a photo when he's got somewhere to go.

Then I it just me or is that a haunted or jaded look in his eyes? It's like the "I'm too old and seen too much" look. Doesn't belong on someone so young...

There's other contrasts between young and old throughout the entire outfit, like the cardigan paired with youthful turquoise. A very memorable shot.


Blogger John Danner said ... (2:11 PM) : 

Love the fit and and color of those pants. Wow. That backpack I need! I also absolutely love the hint of scarf/ascot (?) peeking out around the collar.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:13 PM) : 

I love those blues eigther, beautiful light


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:18 PM) : 

i love how it looks so effortless. and the backpack is awesome.

Can someone tell me who the harringbone backpack is by? i want it! Also where can i get it?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:48 PM) : 

Ok that's one of my favorite pics since a while awesome i need the same chino.


Blogger palbi said ... (12:03 AM) : 

you are not supposed to have TWO bags unless you're heading to the airport. Overall is cute though


Blogger fred-rivedroite said ... (5:33 PM) : 

jorge you're right with the buttons thing (you're comments are allways interesting
the global look is good but even if the shirt/pants colour-contrast is not so well
the pants should be more fitted
keep the line kid you're close to find the way


Blogger halfwhiteboy said ... (6:36 AM) : 

overall, i love his getup. but it's really the pants for me. love that splash of color. i'm not sure about the shoes, though.


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

comfy and refreshing look from the young at heart,
from hong kong :)


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:17 AM) : 

i LOVE the colors!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:40 PM) : 

Those are some excellent capris. I can't believe that getting a good pair for men in the U.S. is nigh impossible. Excellent idea of wearing the cardigan too.


Blogger Marigail Mathis said ... (1:01 PM) : 

good lord, this is a train wreck. Pants are waay to big, what's with the ankles, driving mocks, all that baggage, jewelry. He's a cutie that could look fabulous, if less tricked-out.
but, hey, we're talking about him, so he's happy!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:19 AM) : 

I want my boyfriend to dress up like this (i I ever have a boyfriend again, of course)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:05 PM) : 

This is just terrible. It's not that the look isn't trendy (if anything it's trying to hard to be both trendy and not). It's just bad: rotting shoes, misfitting pants, hobo bags. It's rather awful from the waist down.


Blogger Rebecca V. O'Neal said ... (9:23 PM) : 

a perfect dorian gray...

youth is amazing


Anonymous Threadbare said ... (10:31 PM) : 

This is the second time that I have seen a man wear light blue pants and I am more than ever convinced that it's a great colour for spring or summer. Oddly enough, I find cardigans on men, very sexy too!
