On the Street....Jeans & Jacket (part 2), NYC

Pretty solid, All-American look. I could go without the tie, but the rolled jeans make the look.


Blogger LYNN and HORST said ... (5:09 PM) : 

i like


Blogger said ... (5:15 PM) : 

What an stylish man! I don´t like much the bag but all the other things are perfect!


Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (5:20 PM) : 

Great! I love seeing someone this young pay such attention to his style now matter how eccentric. Very individualistic, funky enough to have a rebellious edge but careful enough to choose the right pocket square. A pocket square when I was his age?- no way. And THAT is a cool bag. Nice one.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:23 PM) : 

The azure blue against the monotony of brick walls and the printed canvas bag bring a certain romanticism to this ensemble.the nicest photo i've seen in a long time.x


Blogger Farbud said ... (5:30 PM) : 

WOW this one's so my type.

reminds me of a Billy Joel album cover from the 80's, not sure if that's a good thing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:38 PM) : 

He is adorable! Love the pocket square with the ratty jeans and tennis shoes.


Blogger Emily said ... (5:38 PM) : 

Remove the tie and make that a messenger back and this could be my husband almost daily. It's one of my favorite looks.


Blogger Holden's Other Half said ... (5:40 PM) : 

This is a great way for the youth to wear a jacket like this. It's much more casual than part 1, yet still incredibly stylish. I also love the bag with the wooden handled umbrella in it. It's a great update on a classic look.

I'm still unsure what I think about the rolled jeans look that is cropping up (pun intended) this fall.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:40 PM) : 

i LOVE it. the whole outfit goes together so well. Even the wooden umbrella handle is adds to his look. Im in awe!!


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (5:50 PM) : 

The first time I saw my husband he was wearing jeans, a white button down shirt and a bomber jacket. Simply a vision. I love this look. He appears to do something besides going to meetings all day.

I wonder what's in his bag of tricks?


Blogger Scoot said ... (5:55 PM) : 

Yes please. This is like what i wear all the time. Rolled jeans, knackered vans, fitted blazers, subtle pocket squares, and fun belts. Comfortable cool. This is some kind of wonderful.


Blogger Miguel said ... (5:59 PM) : 

So classic, from hair to toe... and he handle of the umbrella is just a perfect complement.


Blogger gnjido said ... (5:59 PM) : 

A walking, talking GAP ad if I ever saw one.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:06 PM) : 

I love the bag! and the fact that an umbrella is pointing out from it


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:13 PM) : 

the J Crew catalog comes to mind


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:53 PM) : 

It's the Holden Caufield look...!

Why does this look cool on Italians and naff on Americans?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:04 PM) : 

Wow. Something to aspire to. Much better than that gentleman a few weeks ago with distressed jeans and loafers with skulls.


Blogger the sophisticat said ... (7:10 PM) : 

Great bag. Otherwise I'm kind of bored. Blue denim has lost it for me.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (7:12 PM) : 

okay, this looks good.


Blogger Lady Lala said ... (7:22 PM) : 

Pretty is, I like everything I especially like his bag of hand


Blogger Aussie said ... (7:23 PM) : 

I like the large bag as well as the cuffed jeans. The color pallet works nicely.
Very Vampire Weekend. I love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:29 PM) : 

more like a polo ad


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

I love.


Blogger Jenn said ... (7:57 PM) : 

The shoes don't go. They look out of place


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

No one's said anything about the collar pin! I like all the thought that went into this without making it look contrived. And he's not afraid to store stuff in his jacket pocket (note the ruffled welt pocket flap on his right, probably for extracting the phone) which to me shows he's comfortable living in and using his clothes. All very effortless, well done!


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

The All-American look. In europe they say American has no style, but that is not true. It is just different. This is a perfect example. Très chic - Zoé


Blogger Toad said ... (9:07 PM) : 

Jeans and jacket=ok
Jeans and Jacket with tie =no no no


Blogger Kelley said ... (9:12 PM) : 

I wish more guys where I live would dress like this. It's such an easy look for a guy to put together. He's dressed nice without being too stuffy looking.


Blogger Barrett said ... (9:34 PM) : 

He looks too good to be doing laundry on a rainy day, but that's what I imagine is in the bag. The look is very well done but nothing special until you add that bag.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:25 PM) : 

A tie with jeans? I just don't get it.


Blogger Hadley Makes said ... (11:04 PM) : 

I went to prep school in Kentucky, and so many of the fellas dressed very much like that. It was something I missed when I moved to the West.

I want a pair of those Keds!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:07 PM) : 

Casual without looking sloppy. The young men in the classes I teach could learn something from this -- if they could take their eyes off of their text messaging long enough to pay attention.


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (11:36 PM) : 

Maybe he's Italian and visiting New York?

I miss Levi's 501's. Buttons. So hard to find buttons, much less good ones. I think they are still made, but seldom worn.

Sart, find a good looking guy in 501's pretty please ...


Blogger wilsonreps said ... (12:00 AM) : 

yawn for the fit and a double yawn for his expression.


Blogger mette said ... (12:13 AM) : 

Compared to the guy two pictures down,this guy comes far behind. He is younger,and looks sloppy. The jacket does not help to make it better.


Blogger said ... (12:15 AM) : 

This one definitely goes in the "classic" column. It's a look I saw on a bus 25 years ago in Philadelphia, only in that instance the gentleman was wearing vintage brown and white saddle shoes, immaculately polished. It was perfection.


Blogger creative cookie said ... (1:00 AM) : 

The over-sized bag was an unanticipated surprise. It takes the look over the top. Love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:38 AM) : 

Love it. Love it. Love it!


Blogger Dominica said ... (1:39 AM) : 

Love the bag and his belt but the rest of his outfit is as MH said : boring...


Blogger Michael Joseph Owens said ... (1:48 AM) : 

He looks great in those 501s. Nice belt and bag, too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:23 AM) : 

This has nothing to do with (part 1) which is a legitimate look. Descriptivism accepted, this is just schlub.

Acceptable jacket, acceptable tie, lame jeans, irrelevant shirt; doofy shoes. The bag screams irrelevance.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:21 AM) : 

I prefer Jeans & Jacket part 0 on the Gant-wearing guy from a couple of days ago. I think the whole look comes together better than the 'business up top/party down below' of parts 1 and 2.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:59 AM) : 

Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day
Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA
I really want to come kick it with you
You'll be my American Boy...


Blogger Laurence John said ... (5:20 AM) : 

jacket and beaten jeans often looks like an ex-public school boy affectation. denim with holes in lost its rebellious edge when it became available to buy with pre-done holes. now it looks more like a symbol of generic sameness.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:53 AM) : 

this dude looks like matthew perry


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:38 AM) : 

Great jacket. I love the Sperry topsiders in blue. Hope to see you in Helsinki soon, Sart! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:02 AM) : 

So cute! The umbrella!


Blogger Izzy said ... (7:25 AM) : 

are those raw edges on the hem of the tie? i love the bag and the way the jeans fit.


Blogger strikk handknits said ... (7:30 AM) : 

fabulous bag!


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

I like this one much better than what you entitled "Part 1" because all of the second guy's clothes look worn and thus more natural and relaxed. I think the key to looking sharp is wearing stuff like you were born in it.


Blogger InStudio Blog said ... (8:27 AM) : 

He/this look reminds me of the "hip" boys I went to high school with in the '80s. I'll always like it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 AM) : 

Do you think he realizes that look is now back in style?! ;D


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:23 AM) : 

Ralph Lauren head to toe... looks great!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:16 AM) : 

we're seeing a couple new ways to do denim and jackets. i thought it was a bit out. but with the vintagish/skinny tie maybe?

hmm, not sure where he's going that that would be cool. class? work?

love the shirt collar though. and the hair


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:20 AM) : 

I'm sure he works at the Mansion....


Blogger Jeremiah William McCarthy said ... (11:32 AM) : 

call me.
p.s. love the stronghold.


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (2:55 PM) : 

This guy really nails it. Love the croc(?) belt.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:53 PM) : 

Love the distressed Vans shoes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:53 PM) : 

Boat shoes or penny loafers in the color of the belt would have been the perfect addition instead of the Vans shoes. All in all it is a very prep school inspired look. He definitely reminds me of Holden, the main character from Catcher in the Rye. I really like it and it is nice to see that classy young guys still exist.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:25 AM) : 

without the bag (and the wooden-handled umbrella - he's a kid!) this chap's standard and wouldn't be given a second glance


Blogger Miss Urbanita said ... (6:11 AM) : 

Fantastic mix: distressed jeans with a blazer.


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:26 PM) : 

Alex Keaton for the new millenium.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:59 AM) : 

The collar-pin type safety-pin is stylish. The shoes like penny-loafers could be beter choise.


Blogger kolorit said ... (11:03 AM) : 

what is this bag?!


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

I love this postmodern remix, very common but comfortable. A cosmopolitan look for airpots, work, university, after work for a drink or an informal party... A common boy nothing flashy but with a "something" special -maybe the fantastic bag that gives him a modern "touch"(please I want one! -a bag like this, of course-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:07 PM) : 

i feel like i've seen this before.. a lot.. which is fine. he's got style and that's good. but i agree that without the bag and perhaps pocket square, he's another trendy young man.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:45 AM) : 

Lovely !!!!


Blogger Bluetramontana Style said ... (12:07 PM) : 

Famous quote by catherine "Alex Keaton for the new millenium".


Blogger thwany said ... (12:32 AM) : 

i love vans classics.


Blogger arthurw1 said ... (4:00 PM) : 

clean can tell this guy is about his denim because of the strong hold bag


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:26 PM) : 

Does anyone know who makes the bag?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:35 PM) : 

To "anonymous" before this post:
This bag (I love it!) is from "The Stronghold"...

"The company operates a store on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach, California (1625 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA 90291 (310) 399-7200), that stocks the house label, as well as an edited collection of classic brands. Revered American companies like Filson, Pendleton, White’s Boots, Russell Moccasins, American Optical sunglasses and Stetson hats."

I believe it's imposible to buy on line. But if you have a friend in Venice Beach, Califoria... I want another for me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 PM) : 

Me, everyday. The bag: very good idea. The look: easily attainable at a second hand store: Goodwill (USA). Love it.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:41 AM) : 

what one wears at the Polo office every day. Just so.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:45 AM) : 

One Anonymous poster commented “Ralph Lauren head to toe”, and a few others referred to the look as ‘Polo.’ I actually believe this is a salesman that has worked at both the Ralph Lauren mansion on Madison and the store in East Hampton.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:23 PM) : 

For the establishment of Ralph Lauren on a firmer and more lasting basis...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:32 PM) : 

We have resolved to form a good looking outfit... believing that thus we can most successfully accomplish our object.....

I believe we've met before?


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

nice concept but the poor fit makes it quickly turn boring and dated and done. liked it but over it in three minutes! an italian man would have fit and styled differently.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:53 AM) : 

Classic preppy look. Never goes out of style really. Looks like my sons!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:25 PM) : 

This is what we French mean when we talk about American casual chic.
I love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:57 PM) : 

This doesn't look at all bad, mind you, but I can't fathom what is remotely individualistic about it.

What is so hard about pairing a sportcoat with a pair of crummy old blue jeans?

I'm sorry but this guy is the splitting image of Michael J. Fox in Bright Lights, Big City.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:03 PM) : 

He is a Ralph Lauren Sales Professional at 867 Madison.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:45 PM) : 

Is he rocking Vans?! Love it!

I feel like I've seen this before though... I agree with TMR, it's Holden Caulfield come to life!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:58 PM) : 

I'm glad someone mentioned the Stronghold store. Great looking products and great people.
