On the Street.....Button It Up, NYC

Love this look. retro-modern high class, lovelly

Simply enchanting. Details?


Blogger its for your own good said ... (12:10 PM) : 

i love the short pants. and sometimes you need the extra security of being buttoned all the way up, like wearing a hood.
this is a great look.

he is amazing. love the glasses and the color of his socks!!

I am so not liking cropped pants on guys. On women, worn with sandals, cropped pants show off a well-turned ankle. On men, with socks and flat-heeled shoes, it just looks like their pants are too short. Or like Uncle George and his Bermuda shorts and black socks.

The jacket has me intrigued. A reversion back a couple of centuries to the historical roots of the jacket revers, back when men's coats did button all the way up.

amazing! love the theme


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:21 PM) : 

love his glasses. would like pants to be a little longer for proportion. jacket looks uncomfortable. he looks really comfortable in his skin and enlightened.


Blogger ricola said ... (2:36 PM) : 

Fantastic. It is a functional button hole after all, why not button it? The hat, glasses, shoes, socks and cropped trousers, it all fits together so gosh darn well.


Blogger said ... (2:55 PM) : 

He is so cute! I love the artie way his outfit reminds to childhood without beeing ridiculous, a little bit like a Jaques Tati movie. Even his smile is like the one of a child! Nice shot!


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (4:33 PM) : 

cool jacket!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:49 PM) : 

I like how his glasses and hat accentuates his round head


Blogger Teena Vallerine said ... (5:08 PM) : 

It all looks a bit like the clothes were on the wrong drying cycle. But love the specs. What a relief to get away from hard squares. t.x


Blogger OndrejS said ... (7:12 PM) : 

nice idea, I like the pattern.... but I am really not a big fan of short legs. Overall it looks a bit to me like a costume extras would wear in 1930's movies


Blogger John Danner said ... (8:27 PM) : 

His shoes look like all black bowling shoes, I love that.

I dig the jacket, quite interesting.

Great look overall-- dark red socks are a great little touch.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:54 PM) : 

yep, buttoning up is not only cool but i think it quite comfortable on cold and windy days when you have now scarf with you. so its also warm. ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:44 PM) : 


the jacket treatment is just so obvious and yet it takes people like him to serve it.

a stunning prove how a simple treatment can change the whole look of an outfit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:59 PM) : 

Nice color on the rolled up sleeves. Was that a green chinese hat?


Blogger Austin.Garnett said ... (11:59 PM) : 

what kind of shoes?

also, i think this short(ish) guy can pull off the cropped pants, cus there's no mistaking it. i think i'm too tall for it.
you and facehunter shot the same guy! love both blogs for sure


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:17 AM) : 

very cary grant in philadelphia story with the button up jacket.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:38 AM) : 

gosh!i really like this. he looks like a cross between tintin and rupert bear. great glasses too.


Blogger P. Lee said ... (1:13 AM) : 

excellent job rolling up his sleeves, the lighter blue made a good contrast. this jacket ..., i'd rob him for it. :D


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:59 AM) : 

Love the jacket and the wonderful styling of it and yes I do like both rolled up and pushed up sleeves on men's jacket, Like the butter yellow leather pants colour but I find the short pants to be horrible. Especially as a short guy I find short or cropped pants just make me look even shorter.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:20 AM) : 

the collar of that jacket is fantastic. no wonder it looks so good buttoned up.


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

He looks like Osamu Tezuka, the father of modern manga.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:51 AM) : 

Love the fit, kewl!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:33 AM) : 

the look screams "artist"
fujita tsuguharu would wear those glasses today if he were alive


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:48 AM) : 

Who makes still glasses like that? Are they all retro?


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

Nasty little freak.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:53 PM) : 

This is seriously one of the best pics ive seen on the site. The outfit truly embodies a character or maybe personifies the wearer(i'll never know)

It's feeling very 'Wings of Honneamise'. Is he posing or is he admiring the finishing touches to the jupiter spaceship made from bottle lids and match sticks?


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:34 PM) : 

I've noticed 2 separate trends, one being rolled up jacket sleeves, and the other being the legs of trousers being folded as well(!).

I thought this was a good combination of both, without it becoming cheesy, when he decided to chop his pants off altogether, instead of folding -both- his trousers and jackets.


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

I do not like these "I-got-ready-in-case-my-cellar-is-flooded" pants length. The jacket is nice.


Blogger meredith said ... (12:10 PM) : 

He is welcome at any of my parties in a heartbeat. What a lovely contenance!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:26 PM) : 

So Mao!


Blogger Keiler said ... (4:28 PM) : 

Go primary triad!


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:06 PM) : 

How elegant. I just rolled down about five posts ad was just Whatever about all of them, but this gentleman stands great, has presence and no pretension. Even though his clothes are objectively pretty silly, he's not silly at all and he's wearing them, rather than the other way about.


Blogger milenkos said ... (11:48 PM) : 

his rolling up the sleeves is key and balances his cut pants. He looks like a movie architect; Must be the Philip Johnson glasses


Blogger Rich said ... (2:14 AM) : 

this is good. the jacket especially is very stylish - not only the way it's worn but the check, the shirt color underneath, etc. please tell me those pants aren't cut off. like the shoes and socks. the hat is fine but the glasses are a bit stereotypical.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:49 PM) : 

I like the jacket, the pants could be lighter (to match the jacket check) and longer, I am not feeling the socks, assuming that he has a shirt underneath, what does it look like?

How is childish charming on a grown man all of the sudden?--HB


Blogger Raven said ... (8:01 PM) : 

Funny proportions! In a laughing-with-him way, not laughing-at-him. I think he looks far less pretentious than most kids we see in cropped or shrunken pants.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:36 PM) : 

He looks like "Old Master Q" of the 1970s-80s Hong KOng comic.

Check it out.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 PM) : 

fearless leader

Now we know where Kim Jong Il went.


Blogger Austin.Garnett said ... (12:52 AM) : 

Ha! He also just appeared on Street Peeper. They ask the brands, and his shoes are Swear (I presume that S***R London brand).
