He is a handsome dude. Love his tapered orange pants and matching socks and tie, and his Afro.

What completes the look is the newspaper he is holding in his right hand! overall this is a great photograph, i love the bus in the background.

Nice looks that blends some hard to work colors. Those corduroy pants look like their are either for the very fashion savy, or a very old man out in the English countryside.



Blogger Marty said ... (9:47 AM) : 

He's huge. Not a fan of the no socks, but otherwise very cool.


Anonymous Phil said ... (9:48 AM) : 

Great clothes. But his posture, the purposeful stride. That makes the look.

I like the tie fitting to the pants

Hey, I thought they got rid of all the double decker buses in London?

Wow that guy is tall isn't he!?


Anonymous StevenDV said ... (10:13 AM) : 

Wow, that guy looks tall!

It's a look I might typically associate with smaller physiques, but he really rocks it!

(Of course, when you're tall and wear pants that length do some people assume you just couldn't find any long enough? Alas, I have no reason to know the answer myself.)

Rust cords. Love it. Just what the city needs. That's the problem with London office wear - look at all those dull suits. Goes to show you can do smart and colour. Liverpool Street is so depressing in the morning. This guy would cheer me up x


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:19 AM) : 

Love his style and the color selection..but I still want to lower the hem of those pants to the tops of his shoes...sigh..and give him a pair of sheer silk men's socks - maybe brown with thin stripes..

He must be expecting a flood too!

The guy in the background on the phone is nicely, if quietly, dressed too!


Blogger Brummagem Joe said ... (10:56 AM) : 

......Despite my disdain for the whole flood pants "look" I have to admit he looks very striking and most definitely not in a slightly comic pee wee herman way. Oddly enough I have a Spy cartoon in my house of a Victorian politician the Marquess of Hartington (subsequently 8th Duke of Devonshire) and he's wearing a pair of ankle baring pants that look very similar to these.


Blogger kerfuffler said ... (10:58 AM) : 

Beautiful color coordination of the tie and pants with the very neutral jacket.Too bad the pants look like they have been through a hot dryer cycle-----a little too tight and short.

And the socklessness......sigh.


Anonymous princess glee said ... (11:04 AM) : 

That's a big man in floods. He's courageous.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:39 AM) : 

I like the mix of colors and textures, as well as the pocket scarf and newspaper, but those pants are just not flattering... tapered pants don't work on every body type, and these are also way too short for this gentleman.


Blogger Mikey McFly™ said ... (11:42 AM) : 

Classic! thats all I can say


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:47 AM) : 

Its so inspiring to see that color pants. In a store, folded on a table, it could seem impossible to wear. But seeing them combined here gives courage to know they can be worn, and worn well!

Just a little cuff under the jacket, a great tie and some texture in his jacket pocket make this one a keeper for sure.

i love this look, takes me back a few eras. the length and texture and color fo the pants are my faaaave!


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

this is so London - lots of quiet looking people and then someone who stops you in your tracks -except of course noone takes a blind bit of notice.

And just for the record they got rid of the lovely old Routemaster double deckers. But we have new ones. This is a new style double decker - you can tell from the closed doors at the front which mean you can't jump on and off. Very annoying at red traffic lights when you're in a hurry....


Blogger KellyDove said ... (12:58 PM) : 

I love it! He oozes confidence! That outfit looks like it would wear anyone else, but he wears it for sure. I love to see men that take pride in a look that doesn't look too pretentious. Great as always!


Blogger East Coast-er Momma said ... (12:59 PM) : 

Just bought my husband a pair of pants about this length...I was afraid at first but this photo has given me confidence. He looks fantab. Me likey.


Blogger Rebecca Kiger said ... (1:05 PM) : 

Is he 7 feet tall? In the photo he towers above the others on the street, though he is in the foreground. His color choices (burnt orange and browns) are also great contrast to the mostly blue/gray clothed crowd behind him. The double decker certainly gives us a sense of place, but I wonder how the palette would be different without it.
Maybe it's not a daring look for London, but from my seat in WV, I'm admiring how he's pushed the envelope with burnt orange skinny pants and a hankie.


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:14 PM) : 

love this man's style...
the shorter pant line and bare ankles IS what makes this look...italian men do the same.


Blogger Laurence John said ... (1:18 PM) : 

more Italian influence than English.

I like this picture not just because of the guy's clothes, but b/c of how candid it is and b/c of the unaware background. It feels so much more real, less contrived, more action.

Blogger the nickel fit said ... (1:48 PM) : 

enjoy everything, except the excessively short pants. a sliver of flesh is always sexier than 3x ankle height.

it loses its charm when it's overdone.

to boot, high collars have been replaced with slimmer ones, but who's looking when you have capris on.

Great stride, confidence, effortless...the guy has style.

I have been going sockless in winter for ever, only wearing socks in the evening or with a for the suggestion of "sheer silk socks" with cords... well, I wont say more..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:57 PM) : 

The colors are put together AWesomely, those pants are superb. And I love the casual look of his handkerchief.

I'm not at all opposed to tapered, short pants, but I think that, when considering the overall silhouette, there's something about the combination of the pants, the socklessness and those fairly dainty heeled shoes that bring the twinkle-toed hippos from Fantasia to mind, though the gentleman is certainly no hippo: there just isn't enough of a foundation to the outfit.

I have the same issue with long legs and small feet, and as much as I love tapered pants and little italian loafers on other guys I just can't pull them off together. Were the pants longer and more columnar (or the shoes changed for boots!) I would stand up and applaud.


Anonymous Le 21ème said ... (3:59 PM) : 

Genius look. Très dapper! I love it!



Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (4:01 PM) : 

Long, long legs and a great colour combination. Just gave away a curdoroy shirt in this colour... Oh, why did I???


Anonymous Shveik said ... (4:07 PM) : 

He looks great, like a well dressed, relaxed gentleman, who doesn't have to hurry anywhere else, only to cafe, to order a cup of espresso and read his paper.

I long for seeing the end of too-short pants though. I just can't stand it. Not only because it made nearly everyone to look just ridicuolus, like a impoverished paperboy form Charlie Chaplin movie, but I find it just stupid and exaggerated, exactly as I find too long pants and t-shirts of gangsta style studpidly exaggerated.

His name is Sauvage Adrian.


Blogger said ... (2:51 PM) : 

oh, oh! love it! i love especially the way his personality seems to come across here through both his clothing (and its fit) and his posture/carriage. looks like a fun guy to know.


Blogger Jason Wednesday Miller said ... (3:40 PM) : 

For me, the coat makes the outfit. The orange pants would be outrageous with any other coat. Perfect blending of tonal ranges! The decision to wear black loafers instead of lace ups or even brown shoes makes a world of difference. the inclusion of socks, unless they were chocolate brown, would ruin this pairing!

I highly support the puffed folded pocket square as well! nice touch!

Now all he needs is a hat! A dark chocolate brown or black bowler would do nicely! OR even a deerstalker would do well i think, just enough patterning to crown it all off!


Blogger Emma Louise Layla said ... (9:31 AM) :

Anonymous Sundal said ... (6:15 PM) : 

he looks about 6"8 or 6"9. Nice to see a man of his stature standing up straight, owning his height. My exboyfriend was this tall as well and he also looked this fabulous in clothes (with a bit of a hoxton influence). Rocking the ankle swingers and the way sleeves ride up on the forearm is also a great look, esp. when worn with confidence, like 'i'm proud to be this tall' (seeing as how most london boys roll their skinnies up in order to look taller and show off their boney ankles!)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:38 AM) : 

Lovely man, great outfit--as an earlier commenter said, he's dashing. I don't usually like short pants, but in the context of the rest of his look (and his obvious height and strength), there's something really charming about his delicate little ankles!
