Totally cool. Love his boots and him.

Love the matching shoelaces!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:50 PM) : 

I'm curious to see what everyone says about this ensemble. It can be seen everyday in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin and yet no one is applauding it as "fashion".


Anonymous Reed Grey said ... (4:50 PM) : 

I love how the red laces in the Plaid Homme match the red glasses in the Plaid Femme. Bravo on pairing those two!


Blogger Fashion Agony said ... (4:58 PM) : 

Brilliant shot!



Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (4:59 PM) : 

I like the hat and jacket, but the pants look like pajama bottoms, don't ya think?


Blogger My Heart Blogged said ... (5:03 PM) : 

Okay those pants are awesome. He may not have super mainstream style, but it's cool. I love quirky styles.

This one is fun! I want those shoelaces.

I love outfits where all colors stay in the same family. This photo in particular is a great example of the juxtaposition of the cold weather and the warm colors he's wearing. Great job Scott!

Blogger Tess said ... (5:39 PM) : 

Plaid or check? I'm never quite sure, though I'm leaning toward check with him and with "Plaid Femme." Love the looks regardless!


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:41 PM) : 

I love his sailor looking pants. It seems as though his pants are stitched with a golden boat? I also like how he pulls off the pants tucked in the wool socks. GREAT! His boots are to die foe and so is his jacket. Although, I feel like his plaid jacket is a little too big for him. He should slim it down one or two sizes.

great shot

I love that crazy outfit and I am so hard to please that I am myself surprised!!
Bravo to the guy!


Anonymous jdit said ... (5:59 PM) : 

Love this look. It speaks volumes about practicality, utilitarianism, casualness and comfort. The style comes from the way the clothing makes all of that come together. These hats are all the rage. I remember them when I was a kid. I have lived where the severity of the cold can result in death or very dangerous freezing. Good shots of plaid Scott, Oh Canada, Oh North-lands and so much like blankets with buttons. The only thing better might be the original Hudson's Bay coats with the colored striping or the red versions with the black stripes.

All the right stuff - only missing a great pair of mitts or gloves.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:10 PM) : 

Love the New England lobster pants.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:21 PM) : 

Who makes pants like this?Ralph Lauren?I like the idea of such a print on a pant.


Blogger b said ... (6:50 PM) : 

i love to see the entire shoe, especially if theyre boots.

he's so bundled and chic, but his hands must be cold!


Blogger Neysa Bové said ... (7:35 PM) : 

love the little icons on the pants :)


Blogger Anna said ... (8:17 PM) : 

those boots are the greatest!!


Blogger JK said ... (8:26 PM) : 

Wow, just superb.


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:36 PM) : 

I love the mixing of patterns. And the shoe laces, of course.



Blogger comme fraiche said ... (8:37 PM) : 

if he was just wearing a wool hat instead of what he has on, but otherwise I like what he's got going on, those pants show a little individuality


Anonymous Paulo A. said ... (9:16 PM) : 

What is the name of this gentleman? I follow your blog since the beginning, and have seen pictures of him several times through the years (including one with the same pants). What does he do? I seriously don't recognize him. :)



Blogger Lee said ... (9:39 PM) : 

I love how his laces match the color on his jacket/coat.
Also the pattern on the pants is neat and compliments the plaid pattern on the jacket/coat.

The details are what matter in an outfit!

What happened to Seoul....??? why are back in Milan visiting lumberjacks??? I wanna see Seoul kids!

Blogger Vinda Sonata said ... (10:55 PM) : 

great shot, and his style looks like something out of a vintage novel.
working boots, plaid coat... perfect.


Blogger Bianca said ... (11:05 PM) : 

i adore the fact that i would probably wear this exact outfit!!


Blogger Anna said ... (11:07 PM) : 

Haha! Those pants are SO southern. You see them on every teenager/man here in Savannah. I love how this guy let his high socks peek out from his boots. Awesome color combos.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:15 PM) : 

love the consecutive male/female plaid post!

love everything but the pattern on the pants...sometimes simple is better.


Blogger RIZALENIO said ... (12:19 AM) : 

Prints on pants is a winner.


Blogger Kristen said ... (12:57 AM) : 

This whole "lumberjack" thing is an interesting movement. I'm not 100% on-board with it, but I'm interested in some elements.

"I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay; I sleep all night and I work all day..."

What is the pattern on his pants?


Blogger marjorie rose said ... (1:22 AM) : 

Wow, it's like someone told him that you can wear different patterns as long as they're in the same color family.. and he listened!

p.s. great textures and patterns!


Blogger Adam said ... (1:31 AM) : 

Have recently become addicted to your blog...not a fashion industry guy or expert...but appreciate clothes. I like the jacket here, double breasted, the high angled pocket and the the wrist sincher above the cuff. My apologies for my lack of vocab. Sweet jacket.

I really feel the bottom half of this look. Dope with the pants tucked into the wool socks.

he looks like my grandpa when he went into the garden in winter

- sembra mio nonno quando andava nell'orto d'inevrno -



Anonymous PJ said ... (4:30 AM) : 

Did he leave his workplace for a smoke in the freezing cold? This could well be his cigarette break coat.

His shoes are great! Going further upwards, I'm less convinced. His trousers intrigue, but a double breasted, oversized plaid coat will flatter no-one.

Certainly a great blog shot!

Full disclosure: I have the same trousers. Ralph Lauren Rugby.


Blogger Mary Beth said ... (9:52 AM) : 

I love the hat...earflaps, fake fur (??) and all. I wish I had one to wear now that it's sub-zero here in Chicago.


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

Love it :D.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 AM) : 

I like the guy's big coat. You cannot fit layers under a skinny coat. Skinny coat trying-to-hard-to-be cool people will be the first ones bitching about how cold it is. This guy has the time and leisure with his warmth to comfortably enjoy his cigarette. His plaid is very visible to traffic--this man is the epitome of walking safety and comfort


Blogger Wakar said ... (11:18 AM) : 

Love how the band on the coat sleeves is echoed by the boot laces wrapping around the back of the boots. It just (pardon the pun) ties the whole outfit together.

It great. :)


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:37 AM) : 

omg. yours is one of the best blog ever.


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

Blogger MSlattery said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Dragons and lobsters and sailor pants, oh my!
I thought it was swans a-swimming on those pants!


Blogger Kathleen said ... (12:49 PM) : 

Okay, where was I when this lumber jack thing happened? As always Scott, you are right. On this Plaid Homme, its all gone wrong. If he were here in NWA in three feet of snow digging out then absolutely, but this outfit is WAY over the top for street wear. I'm seeing a mix of the late 70's to early 80's thrown in with the combat boots we all wore in the 90's. Ugh, this is sort of nuts!


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (12:57 PM) : 

kind of a comfortable, just running on erands type of look.
hat looks really ready to take on the cold.
the bits of red & yellow cheer up a grey day.

if it weren't for the cobblestone sidewalk it could look like manhattan.

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

Wow, how cold is it anyway in Milan?...poor dude looks like he needs every bit of that clothing to keep warm! Those boots seem to be in a lot of your photos lately. Can't say I've seen much of them where I live, but wish I did. They are rugged and manly.


Anonymous Raphael Potts said ... (8:11 PM) : 

THOSE PANTS ARE SICK!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my god i need them right now


Blogger Sara Felice said ... (2:56 AM) : 

I just read "Nine Mile Bridge," an autobiography by a French/English teacher on the Maine/Canada border in the 1940's, and after reading that, I can perfectly understand the longevity and cool of this look. In the now, it's artistic yet badass at once, the same way some hip-hop looks are, that arise from necessity. The way this utilitarian look becomes fashionable is still a bit beyond the reach of my words, but I get it, and others who read this blog would know how to articulate it. Help?


Anonymous Zykamore said ... (7:32 AM) : 

Not really buying the mix, the pants and coat alone are great but the mix makes it feel a bit "too much", a bit to costumey. I also think the pants tuck should stay where it belongs, on high school kids.

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

This is definitely a "look". Reminds me of the old I Love Lucy episode when Ricky buys the girls "Paris Fashions" consisting of a burlap sack and buckets for hats as a joke, and the girls are "oohing and aahing" just because it came from Paris. Next day they see the same outfits on the designer's models walking down the street. Guess we'll see this look on the runway next!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:32 PM) : 

Love the look but he needs a frozen lake and an ice cutting saw to complete it.


Anonymous A said ... (5:02 PM) : 

Haha. I love the Wisconsin comment at the beginning and the I Love Lucy comment a few above...I find this look endearing and comical! The lumberjack is definitely in. Is this too much of a good thing? Or has this gentleman been dressing this way for years so it's OK? Regardless, Great shot! Made my afternoon :)

Blogger Unknown said ... (1:00 PM) : 

This outfit is like a Jackson Pollack painting. You either think it's genius or you just don't get it. In this case, I fall into the "don't get it" camp. That said, props to the guy for pushing boundaries.

didn't love too much but still in style XD


Anonymous Naftali Stern said ... (7:18 PM) : 

There is some interesting layering ideas to this outfit but it is what seems to be a ship motif on his pants that does it for me.
