Very bold... great color for the jacket but definitely not something you would catch the average Joe wearing.


Blogger Deafkid said ... (10:28 AM) : 

The shape the capri shoe combo gives him is flawless. Makes his calves look awesome.


Blogger Leah said ... (10:31 AM) : 

Great outfit. Like a modern dandy. Shame about the shoes though. I think he could have used something more substantial.


Blogger Karoline said ... (11:12 AM) : 

Lovely blazer!


Blogger amalie said ... (11:26 AM) : 

great blazer. and his pants are awesome... and some how, he manages to make it look good with those shoes..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:32 AM) : 

o hai Ken! Love the locks.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:45 AM) : 

Great summer look - apart from the shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:05 PM) : 

From the knees up, his outfit is bangin'. The shoes, on the other hand, are doing him no favors.


Anonymous princess glee said ... (12:11 PM) : 

Nuh-uh but thanks for trying.


Blogger CW said ... (12:26 PM) : 

I agree with Leah. This man should have worn something more substantial. In fact, he looks like he's wearing a large-size ladies' Keds.

BTW, these are not capri pants for men. These are what we in the USA call knickers. (I know that in the UKspeak world "knickers" means underpants) This example looks like this gent should be golfing.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:29 PM) : 

Let's not kid ourselves. This looks like what it is i.e. man dressed in womans clothes. Not good.


Blogger Philippe said ... (1:07 PM) : 

Nice haircut, nice jacket, nice pants well nice style & so natural..



Blogger hc said ... (1:19 PM) : 

great top and shorts combo.

shoes should be muted to balance the noisy shorts, which in turn need to be worn out further, before publicly wearing.


Blogger Jazzbuff630 said ... (1:29 PM) : 

The shoes kill the outfit. Wrong color, and too "flimsy". He needs
some brogues, or something with a kiltie on them. Ghillies with tassels on the lacetips would be perfect.

I agree with Sprockette - the chap does display, as they used to say "a well turned calf". This is not a look for the chicken-legged.

I agree with Leah - something about this outfit is pre - Beau Brummel.

I'd love a sport jacket made out of the same fabric as his knickers;
that the extent of my sartorial adventurousness.


Anonymous owen said ... (1:47 PM) : 

love the pink plimsolls!

i'll wear this look in a heartbeat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:52 PM) : 

It's Phil!!!!!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:08 PM) : 

great blazer - love the blue. not too sure of the shoes though, maybe a darker color would have balanced out the look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:39 PM) : 

I understand the androginy but i think the whole shape is too femenine, specially the shorts. Could've used a little bit more substance.


Blogger NVA said ... (3:12 PM) : 

i find...the shoes is little bit female


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

No doubt, I understand why this made the Sartorialist. You just couldn't resist it.


Blogger Laurence John said ... (4:17 PM) : 

this is crying out for battered brown brogues.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 PM) : 

ha! pretty funny


Blogger Lorraine said ... (4:54 PM) : 

CW - you're right, in the UK knickers means underpants, but we'd probably call these knickerbockers or pedal-pushers. I had a pair of burgundy velvet ones when I was a nipper that I loved. Like many commentators on here, I'm not sure about the shoes. My usual war cry here is, "I'd have gone for a brogue..."


Blogger Catherine said ... (4:58 PM) : 

*sigh* This guy kinda looks like me...except I'm a girl...and he looks better *sigh*


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

such beautiful fall light in that photo. nicely done.


Blogger fumio230 said ... (5:13 PM) : 

shoes is very good.


Blogger CW said ... (5:35 PM) : 

Lorraine, I would have gone not for a brogue (in USspeak, an oxford with a heavy sole) but for a low cut work shoe or even a desert boot.

The denim jacket, now that another commenter mentioned it, does look like its for a woman.



Blogger Kristina Yenko said ... (6:32 PM) : 

Haha I was right behind you when you were taking this. :)
Loving Surry Hills atmosphere, and running into you just made my day.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:47 PM) : 

I am not sure about his look...but I do dig the shot, nice shading and perspective.


Blogger Anastasia said ... (7:44 PM) : 

Great Hair!!


Blogger Grace said ... (7:44 PM) : 

It took me a while to decide if this was a man dressed in woman's clothing or a very masculine woman.
The blazer's the highlight, though the pants and shoes seem too feminine, to me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:18 PM) : 

love the irony in the shoes. brogues?? nah. yaaay for dissonance!


Blogger Bookworm said ... (8:20 PM) : 

Loving the shorts + the blue jacket (velvet, no?). Not a big fan of the pink shoes.


Blogger Fashion Hayley said ... (8:32 PM) : 

Its Phil Oh on the other side of the lens. Yay. He always looks smashing and has great taste. I like the casual shoe here.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:03 PM) : 

The shoes scream "look at me!, look at me!"


Blogger What everyone's fighting for. said ... (9:28 PM) : 

Great look. The hair and The color of the jacket along with his skin and the print of the chaps and the pink shoes is exquisite,

and I disagree with the shoe haters. They along with his long hair make look young and carefree instead of stuffy and old fashioned.


Blogger Jeanette said ... (12:14 AM) : 

Great looks, love your blog, but all these looks you have taken doesn't really really mind me what the real Sydney fashion is like.


Anonymous marie said ... (1:45 AM) : 

schmasculine / schmeminine .. does it matter?
Fashion is about pushing boundaries.. women have adopted menswear details for decades now and in bygone days menswear was completely over the top in details that we would now consider only suitable for womens' wear (ie. embroidery, lace, silk).
Its always changing, that's what makes it great and that's why it makes it onto this website (i would assume).



Anonymous moremony services said ... (2:42 AM) : 

great blazer. and his pants are awesome... and some how, he manages to make it look good with those shoes..


Blogger RUBIE said ... (8:23 AM) : 

so, i live in sydney
and no one i EVER see dresses like this.
where the hellllll do you find them??


Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (8:35 AM) : 

Plus-fours can be a great alternative to shorts. i just bought some in white linen from a vintage store. i love the way this gentleman has put together his outfit so he looks contemporary and a bit quirky. he looks cool, and i like his shoes, too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:20 AM) : 

agree w/ previous post---nice look on a 15 year old female-


Blogger John B Pritchett said ... (10:47 AM) : 

Not a great fan of this look but nice to see someone pushing boundaries!


Anonymous Lemom said ... (11:33 AM) : 

Love the shoe, partially because I got a pair of red ones recently!


Blogger Eric.Granwehr said ... (7:39 PM) : 

philll!!!!!!!! amazing.


Blogger SallyO said ... (8:27 PM) : 

My mom has those shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:49 PM) : 

I'm not a huge fan of the overall ensemble, but I love the pants. I'm pretty sure they are by Dries van Noten, but if not they are nearly identical to a pair of his I've seen.


Blogger Fashion Personality said ... (1:55 AM) : 

Something difference! I like the unusual combination. I like the checkers pant.


Anonymous sara said ... (3:08 AM) : 

he has a cool style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:35 AM) : 

beautiful casuals!!


Blogger Barima said ... (11:02 AM) : 

Always a pleasure to see Phil's ensembles, though some Paul Smith brogues would have sold the look far more effectively. But this is why he is who he is


Blogger ana said ... (2:00 PM) : 

everything is OK except for the pink shoes


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (3:22 PM) : 

wow, that jacket is niiice.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:06 PM) : 

his style is very similar to mine . . . I love it . . .

Blogger lauren baluyo said ... (2:27 AM) : 

love the jacket...would wear it for myself. and do admire his rather quirky style.


Blogger Ostendaise said ... (3:50 AM) : 

Damn! Is it just me? That is hideous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:51 AM) : 

the bottom half makes him look like a dumpy matron. blunder!!!!!

looks amazing!!! pink shoes clash with the rest.


Blogger M&S said ... (8:39 PM) : 

Love the look of this guy


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:07 AM) : 

I could just eat you up like a big bowl of porridge!


Blogger Emily said ... (11:02 AM) : 

Phil, you look wonderful. I hope you're having fun!


Anonymous thifal said ... (1:11 AM) : 

oh i love the shoes, really


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

Phil is looking great!!! He looks very handsome like this!
But hey! Where is your geisha elastic? That was a hot look too :)


Blogger Marty McFly said ... (2:19 PM) : 

is it me?

there is something about his hair that clashes with the outfit...

i cant put my finger on it...
but there is a disposition that is lacking here.


Anonymous Brad said ... (4:37 AM) : 

Love the plaid shorts. Right length, right fabric. I need to see more of these as opposed to super wide, ill fitting board shorts everywhere!


Anonymous dreamcrusher said ... (1:09 PM) : 

great outfit! But it reminds me way too much of america...


Blogger Quinn said ... (2:00 AM) : 

I look like Phil. Can someone give me his email? I think he is my twin.


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

I like it!

Always great to see men pushing boundaries. So what if he's wearing female (inspired) attire. He owns his look and that's all that matters. It's certainly a look I like to achieve and it's much better than the boring combat shorts and t-shirts I see guys wearing all the time!
