Blogger WE SPY WITH MY LITTLE i said ... (9:34 AM) : 

The 2 p's short of the three p's but it will do!

Polka Dots and Pendleton!

Yours Truly



Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (9:39 AM) : 

Hm. He has obviously paid a lot of money for his clothes, a couple of the items are recognizable by those of us who read men's fashion mags. I have to say the plaid and polka-dot go quite well together, IMHO, but I think he forgot the quintessential rule: put your outfit together, and before you leave the house, take one thing off. He could have created a similar outfit with more creativity and a lot less money. Jorge from WPB

Love the doted jacket. Cute guy :)

Clean and tidy. I think I spy Woolrich snaps.


Blogger Dominica said ... (9:49 AM) : 

always great to see a mixture of fabrics/prints ... totally adore the polka dot jacket underneath


Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (9:55 AM) : 

I like the play on patterns.


Blogger Coco and Zaahb said ... (9:56 AM) : 

This makes me want a plaid jacket



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:59 AM) : 

He should remove the ridiculous baseball hat.


Anonymous tiarastrash said ... (9:59 AM) : 

I only have one word....HOT!


Blogger Land of Enchantment said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Love the pattern contrast. So cute to see polka dots with a rugged, masculine plaid.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:08 AM) : 

There are only a handful of comments at this point, but of course they all state the same thing: the mixing of the pattern. That in itself just like the look is cliche. So, you mixed your prints... that doesnt mean it's cool or looks good.

If one of the prints was in a different color scheme, it would look a little more interesting. As well the fabrication on the polka dotted jacked looks garish with the fabrication of the plaid jacket.

Lastly, if this was taken yesterday in NY, it was way too hot for all this. Fashion is great, fashion is art, but fashion should also be functional... if you're sweating bullets underneath... all of this was useless.

Love the layering of varying shades of blue and the contrast between the ruggedly masculine plaid and adorable polka dots.


Blogger Jonathan Burton said ... (10:27 AM) : 

Looks very Shoreditch (l=London) I like.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:37 AM) : 

He’s a natural. An effortless look. Love the way the hat sits high on the head.


Anonymous Takeru said ... (10:40 AM) : 

Nice polka dot jacket!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:43 AM) : 

Cute guy, amusing look. Unlike Jorge, I don't see $$$ in his look; I'd almost hope he pulled it off on a budget.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:46 AM) : 

Love how his eyes pop but is he wearing pajamas?


Anonymous isabella said ... (10:51 AM) : 

The Manhattan skyline just came into view, returning home from Boston -- first order of business is checking who's what on the streets!
Very handsome man, jacket and shirt!


Blogger Caddy said ... (11:00 AM) : 

Is it me or do the colors of his clothing bring out the color of his eyes? :)


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

polka dots and plaid ? It does work in theory and as this guy illustrates in practice either.


Blogger Fashion & DIY said ... (11:45 AM) : 

Love the polka dots blazer!!


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

While the individual elements of this outfit are fine enough, the final effect is...Completely Dorky!


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (11:52 AM) : 

Polka dots and plaid look so good on him! xo


Blogger The (Style) Realist said ... (11:57 AM) : 

some people seem to have an issue with his hat, but if he removed it, tht wouldn't be true to his style and the way he's expressing himself through his dress...

i think he looks great! always a sucker for smart pattern mixing...


Blogger The Concrete Commentator said ... (12:02 PM) : 

love the pattern combo! handsome guy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:20 PM) : 

This guy's look says "step to me 'cause I'm cool." Slamming look--are those gloves in his left hand pocket? Just the right amount of disheveled. Shoes? We wonder.


Blogger The Shoe Snob said ... (12:30 PM) : 

Love the idea!!! I don't know if i would mix and match those fabrics and patterns but always love when someone pushes the envelope to create something different, thats realy style!! Great coat none the less


Anonymous Natasha said ... (12:35 PM) : 

i really like the angle of his hat, it adds something to the outfit especially with that pattern mix, navy colour scheme and those eyes-some people are analysing this look so seriously-it's someone's personal style, everyone is different :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:40 PM) : 

I can see Bryan Greenberg's character in 'How to Make it in America' wearing this. Assuming this is from at least a month ago (gloves in left pocket), four layers in April?? Love to see the shoes as well.


Blogger Yoli said ... (12:55 PM) : 

He is handsome but that is as far as I will go. Not a fan of what he is wearing.


Anonymous peter said ... (12:56 PM) : 

have to pass on this picture...maybe i'm getting older


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:00 PM) : 

Great look on a hot guy. Love it when a masculine guy has fun and creativity expressing himself with his clothes. Bravo!


Blogger CW said ... (1:20 PM) : 

Like the polka dot vest (jacket?) but not the combination with the plaid coat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:12 PM) : 

I'm sorry, he looks like a farm boy to me, the hat, the plaid jacket and the jeans. Only the polka dotted vest underneath is different.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:37 PM) : 

I just don't see anything creative going on with dude's look here, he's just playin' (payin'?) by the rule to attain that streetwear-nerd look. At least it matches tonally. I wish guys could break free from that high-fade-with-beard look that's becoming generic among young (mostly gay) men. Also, New York, let's embrace spring--time to retire the Black Watch tartan until Fall.


Blogger H said ... (2:40 PM) : 

Aw, nothing new here, he's just playin' (payin'?) by the rules to attain that streetwear-nerd look. At least it matches tonally. I'm not a huge fan of the high-fade-and-beard combo that's becoming generic amongst young (mostly gay) men. Also spring is here New York, time to retire that Black Watch until Fall.


Blogger The Eternal Intern said ... (2:48 PM) : 

I'm loving that farm-boy/lumberjack meets NY look! That's waht maketfit!
Vraiment top!

Blogger The Eternal Intern said ... (2:51 PM) :

Blogger FiL said ... (2:55 PM) : 

I like it so...



Blogger FiL said ... (3:01 PM) : 

I like it so...



Anonymous Michael Allen's said ... (3:13 PM) : 

Fantastic! A plaid "baseball jacket" combines two major trends in men's fashion this season. And mixing the polka dot with the plaid makes it that much more adventurous! Love it!


Blogger Korver said ... (3:20 PM) : 

I like this a lot.
He comes across as a normal guy with great taste, not a fashion snob.
I think the addition of the cap, while not "fashionable" per say, shows that he's his own person.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:24 PM) : 

Cool jacket!!



Blogger Prutha said ... (3:31 PM) : 

love the polka dotted vest inside! is cute!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:03 PM) : 

MARRY ME, stylish boy.


Blogger The Pilgrim said ... (4:39 PM) : 

He's so cute it's hard to focus on the clothes, which are great, by the way.


Anonymous Charlotte K said ... (7:44 PM) : 

LOVE the plaid and the polka dots.

HATE the hat.


Blogger See Your Style said ... (9:53 PM) : 

Never thought to pair polka dots with plaid. A risk that nicely paid off.


Blogger Daniel Gurton said ... (4:36 AM) : 

Does anyone know did the polka dot jacket???

But must agree the hat doesn't do it for me.. But i love those polka dots


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (7:34 AM) : 

Great details


Blogger Izzen said ... (8:40 AM) : 

Haha, cute.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 AM) : 

The more the upper classes try to co-opt the style and dress of the working class the easier it to spot the poser. so keep up the good work there young rich white boy.

I like his jacket. Where is it from?


Blogger Alex.and Ria said ... (8:24 PM) : 

I love everything about this photo!


Blogger Anya Tika said ... (11:21 PM) : 

Can't you all understand that fashion is for EVERYONE? Yes, now that we've got that down.. The bicycle hat looks great to me and it's always a breath of fresh air to see a young man (of my age who isn't a stock broker or an ad exec.) who puts some effort into his style. Great thrown together look. Stop shredding everyone to pieces, folk.


Anonymous zaman said ... (11:40 PM) : 

Simple but has a strong characters


Blogger omarkhayam said ... (12:06 AM) : 

just miss a guy shot from u. vintage jacket plus dotted...oh so vintage.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:14 AM) : 

Have always liked polka dots and have two such shirts. Anyone know where he got his polka dotted baseball jacket?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:52 AM) : 

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks he looks like a farmboy. Nothing wrong with that, but is this really fashionable? If so, come see the rest of the line in a field near you. They should be plowing them soon.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:09 AM) : 

verry very nice style , cool jacket and very handsom


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:29 AM) : 

This is an OPEN forum for everyone. Each person is entitled to their opinion regardless of it is positive or negative. As well, your comment about ad execs and stockbrokers is stereotypical. There are many who dress very well, and who challenge the norm of their profession.

What are you his gf? Sorry, Fashion isn't always so nice. (see my original post at 10:08am.. it's one of the first few comments).


Anonymous Alèj said ... (10:45 AM) : 

très très sexy !!!


Blogger The Accessory Lady said ... (11:47 AM) : 

I usually don't think plaid and polka dots are a good combination, but for some reason this actually works. Perhaps it's the dark colors or how confident he loos while wearing it. I'm not sure, but I like it!


Blogger David said ... (6:48 PM) : 

the polka dots is a reversible y-3 jacket from a year or two ago its one of my favourite pieces i own.


Anonymous felt said ... (12:37 AM) : 

i like color of jacket


Anonymous proletarian Great Gatsby said ... (4:24 AM) : 

I want his jacket with the bib big pockets.And not bat effect this mixture of squares with the Lichtenstein dots.


Anonymous Morgan said ... (10:52 AM) : 

He is fantastic. I don't care if this is "fashionable" or not. He is showing his own style, and isn't that what fashion is really about, anyway?
He's so cute, he can wear whatever he wants to.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 PM) : 



Blogger behindthemask said ... (6:17 PM) : 

Mmmmmmmmm, poka dots and stripes isn't that the biggest faux pas for boys/mens fashion? Personally, I just think he'd have been better off with 1 or the other. He looks man enough to pull off just 1 and leave it at that, especially with the cap as well, it just feels a bit too much effort for me and he knew it too when he left his house/apt but decided to put on his best I'm a man's man face so hides it really well!!!!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:16 AM) : 

Love this. Doesn't hurt that he's quite good-looking!


Blogger Emmit Pax Denver said ... (2:18 PM) : 

I'm not sure what to think. His dressing stresses me out for some reason.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:37 PM) : 

isn't he that model from the opening ceremony site?

Mixing up that patterns should be ilegal!
