On the Street.... Shorts Summer, Florence

awesome, the helmet is tops TOPS.


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

Oh! That's amazing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:44 AM) : 

Very interesting look, though I think its more of a statement than a wearable outfit. The double-breasted jacket makes the whole look a little top-heavy for my liking, but the overall palette is nice.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:46 AM) : 

great the hair.


Blogger Bahrain Fashion said ... (9:48 AM) : 

I'm loving the sunglasses...

Tres Chic.

And I love the shorts, too!!



Blogger kübra gümüsay (geb. yücel) said ... (9:52 AM) : 

I think it'll take a looong time until I get used to these short men-shorts. Ugh.


Anonymous Elaine said ... (9:52 AM) : 

His color coordinated outfit is great! He has nice legs. Is it his hair that makes me think of Michael Jackson?


Blogger James Jean said ... (9:54 AM) : 

That blazer is great, has a bit of a 60's mod feel and that bowtie is fabulous but either he hikes the sleeve up on the shirt or lengthen the blazer sleeves. Awesome look nonetheless.....


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

Quirky! Although I'm not quite convinced by the style of the shoes...


Blogger I'm a mean street kid. said ... (9:55 AM) : 

haha so cute


Blogger The Minimalist said ... (9:57 AM) : 

he looks awesome


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:58 AM) : 

Wow! It's been a while since I've seen an outfit that has captured me immediately like this one does. The blue-brown coulour scheme is unusual but brilliantly executed. The Italian sence of sprezzatura completes an already perfect outfit. Again: wow.

I want to be more open-minded, but the bow tie just puts this over the top for me.


Blogger Roman Dennis said ... (9:59 AM) : 

that jacket is amazing but he doesnt really do those shorts justice maybe if they were an inch or two longer he would


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:02 AM) : 

Mmmm... Well... At least, this one did not shave his legs!


Blogger Mod Paul said ... (10:07 AM) : 

Wow how did he get his hair looking so good just after taking his helmet off? I need to find a water fountain for a quick rinsie... HaHa Great shot Scott.
P.S. Helmet laws kind of stink!


Anonymous DAD said ... (10:09 AM) : 

Hee looks great and all but it's a little on the cartoon character side. It just isn't a very practical summer look.

I mean, if it's hot enough outside to wear those shorts, that DB jacket and the shirt + bowtie just make me sweat thinking about them. this could have worked without the jacket, sleeves neatly rolled or without the bowtie + a linen jacket


Blogger Pearl Westwood said ... (10:15 AM) : 

So casual-dapper, Im not usually a fan of bowties but he looks ace x


Blogger isac. said ... (10:18 AM) : 

fantastic! the pose and his stance are amazing too


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:20 AM) : 

I think the bow tie is a little too much. For me, either he gets rid of the bow tie or gets slightly longer shorts.


Blogger The Khaki Crusader said ... (10:23 AM) : 

amateurs need not apply...this guy is a professional. the fact he wore that while riding a scooter in just makes it all the more fantastic.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:02 PM) : 

I love the colours but honestly I'm really not a fan of shorts. Call me old fashioned but shorts are for little boys. When you grow up you should act and dress like a man. Wear shorts on the weekend or at home, I sure do, but as part of a suit? I don't think it's fashion forward I think it's fashion regressive. Let's grow up here.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:04 PM) : 

Pee Wee Herman comes to mind. . .I love that he seems so fearless and invincible in this outfit--very cute


Blogger Em Lo Porto said ... (12:04 PM) : 

there is something funny about the hem of the shorts...they remind me of when my mom would make my long pants into shorts as a kid. The hem would always be a little too narrow. The jacket cuffs need like a 1/4 inch more.

I LERV this outfit though, and he wears it so well. I love the shirt collar. Also, he is one of the few men who can wear short shorts with those hairy legs and make it look good!

Nice shot!!!!


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

I agree with anon at 9:44 in that this is "more of a statement than a wearable outfit." His color choices are great and I quite enjoy the peak lapels/bow tie combination, but I can not get over the length of the shorts stripping much of the masculinity from his look.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:15 PM) : 

A shame that this outfit feels disjointed or disproportional because everything else, especially the color palette, is perfection.

it is great that youth corrects all/most things. he can wear a unique jacket and attack with that item while other issues are suspect. shorts are too short, jacket sleeves too short, shirt sleeves too long. but, he still looks "intersting"

i agree with some of the others, the colors are fab, the outfit is top-heavy, the shorts are too tight and short to work with the jacket and on my own here...what happened with the shoes? oxfords, bucks or loafers and please with such an intentional getup have the helmet be as serious or starkly contrast.

i admire the effort.

Incredible! This is just too astounding! He nailed it! I am practically speechless right now due to this guys amazing ensemble! I love the length of the shorts and the fact he is wearing boat shoes...sock-less! He has the dark blazer to match and then the lighter color blue for the shirt and then the burgundy bow tie! He adds the extra cool twist with his aviators! AMAZING!

The bowtie may be too much? Even though it's going very well with the rest colour-wise, it still seems a bit out of place.


Blogger Monster Blond said ... (5:05 PM) : 



Blogger UESman said ... (5:10 PM) : 

Um, hell yes.

I love how he didn't button the inner button of his DB jacket. Thats something which you don't see too much anymore and I think its a nice throwback.

This is a really great idea, but I think if I were wearing this look, I'd pick a jacket and shorts combo which had more color contrast.

....really cool


Blogger Lénou said ... (5:21 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:45 PM) : 

He needs longer pants, at least ankle length, and dressier shoes. I think the colors and accessories are great; the jacket cut is fab, along with the big hair and the aviator sunglasses. Great!!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:05 AM) : 

The proportions are a bit odd. The cut of the double-breasted jacket flares out and with the too short shorts it's not all that flattering.

But the bow tie, glasses, and attitude are stunning.

Looks really SILLY. If it is warm enough to wear short shorts, then the long sleeved shirt, blazer, and bow tie are completely out of place. All the elements are great separatedly, but together... trying too hard, and it shows.

Tone this down to biege and replace the boatshoes with oxfords and you'd have what a lot of cats were rocking in Harajuku when I was there a month ago. I like this over the top version too, though i don't love the shoes.

It's a dapper summer look, no need to hate on the shorts babies.

how much cuter could this be if he took the DB off amd rolled up the sleeves on his shirt?
i like how his bow tie reflects the color of his shoes and ties the whole outfit together.


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

can't say I'm a fan.

I think this may be one of my least favorites of your shots.

the colors are good; the idea is there; but the proportions are all wrong.

Perhaps if the shorts were a bit longer and the jacket sleeves were a tad longer (or pushed up), this might work.

Bow tie is a tad over the top but might still work if the other components were fixed.


Anonymous ronan the librarian said ... (11:44 PM) :

when i first saw this i was like, WOW, it is one of those up in your face outfits. Nonethese, I ADORE the blazer and the bowtie, if the gentleman was selling them (in a different size obviously LOL), i would be reaching for my wallet in no time. I'm not incredibly fond of the shoes, they're look a bit chuncky for my taste, but maybe the rough factor of the shoes goes with the wild hair. Anyways, i feel the whole outfit protrudes so much character that it's useless to mingle over final details :)


Anonymous Elizabeth said ... (12:41 PM) : 

Eye catching, indeed. Feels too forced, though.

The shorts, I keep thinking they're boxers and he misplaced his pants. Perhaps it's the length.

He obviously doesn't play by "the rules." Anyone who can wear this and pull it off with such confidence shows true style. I personally can't find much wrong with what he is wearing. I think sometimes we get to caught up in rules or ourselves to truly appreciate life.

Great shot!!!

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

A lot of you, particularly the older more conservative crowd (which is like 80% of Sart. commenters)don't seem to get whats going on here.
It's supposed to be a play on proportions.
The short jacket sleeves are an absolute necessity, as are the shorts.
I wasn't feeling the shoes initially, but their weight contrast well with the shorts to once again play on this idea of proportions, which is why his legs look odd (which adds to the outfit).

The hair and glasses look lame though. If he had a cooler haircut it would make him seem like he was more aware of the exaggerated proportions and would make him seem less like a comic book character, unaware of his own absurdity.

Oh, and it wouldn't work without the bowtie wither. It makes it a lot look less serious, which is true to it all, and seems to transplant a bit of the character of the bottom half of the outfit into the top, making it seem less like he has just put on two entirely different outfits.

PS: It's clearly maroon, not brown, not that unusual of a palette.

Oh, and ditch the helmet.
