On the Street....Slim Lumberjack, Pitti Uomo

This whole "Urban Lumberjack/Heritage" trend can get a bit bulky and unflattering, don't you think?

With all the layers of flannels and thermals and buffalo plaids even a skinny guy can look overstuffed - or overfed.

Leave it to an Italian, such as the gentleman above, to find a way to slim down the look and make it a flattering one. The trick is the slim cut KNIT(!) peacoat. A popped collar doesn't hurt, either.

Great eye, Sart!! ☆

Nice boots!

Love it!


Blogger GINGER FASHION MONSTERS said ... (4:44 PM) : 

I find it's fascinating, how despite the globalised world we live in, so many countries have their own distinctive ways of dressing.
And I love seeing all the Pitti Uomo photos, just because it's a proper focus on men's clothes (albeit exclusively Italian-style), which isn't always the case.


Blogger Kholá said ... (4:45 PM) : 

Very true about slimming the look down.


Blogger Kyle said ... (4:45 PM) : 

Great look! I definitely like the peacoat. I always had trouble embracing the "lumberjack" style simply because I, like the guy in the photo, am most definitely not built like a lumberjack.


Blogger Fashion Monstre said ... (4:54 PM) : 

i totally agree with the layering- but this man can totally rock any style


Blogger chic4's spyglass said ... (4:54 PM) : 

got your book today after "checking" your girlfriend wardrobe in new Elle, and i think i'm under the street fashion spell ;)


Anonymous jimjims said ... (4:57 PM) : 

ya, this guy knows whats going on.

the hipster trend can get a bit overdone... yes.

but if you can pull it off and not look like a total tool, then more power to ya!

great little insight!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:57 PM) : 

Oh, I love it! It's elegant yet umberjacky, I think it's the perfect combination. Looks great on him. Well done!


Blogger Nico said ... (5:01 PM) : 

As always, a fab photo. I'm prompted to comment simply because I first read the title as "Slumberjack." Which sounds like a great new blanket with sleeves.


Anonymous Tristan said ... (5:03 PM) : 

What boots are those? Anyone know?


Blogger Kate said ... (5:17 PM) : 

Great trousers- love the way they don't fit but look right.

oh yes great! he is very smart & damn cute too.

you can still have function without bulk.

Those Massimo Dutti boots are really popular, the man two photos down is wearing them too!

Great Photo!


Blogger My Heart Blogged said ... (6:17 PM) : 

It looks like his slim cut jacket, and pants really make it work. I like the rugged look, and for some people a lot of layers works.

I love his jeans!!

SEXY and has STYLE... I'm in love.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:19 PM) : 

those look like redwing moc toe boots. i'd stay away from them just for the sake of their white soles. i know it's all the rage/trend, but after one wearing they forever look dirty and gray. if you're gonna go with redwing boots, go for their black/leather soles.


Blogger my.amalgam said ... (6:20 PM) : 

this doesnt look very layered to me...
but i do like his boots and jeans


Blogger Davidikus said ... (6:21 PM) : 

There is quite a number of coats / overcoats which I would love to see in similar slim versions. Moncler has some slim "doudounes" (even an oxymoron). In the past few years, we have witnessed a few slimmer anoraks (including one from Balmain), or Varsity jackets which don't taper at the bottom and therefore have a slimmer look (including one from... Balmain); perfectos*/asymetrical biker jackets that are slimmer (including some from Balenciaga, the great yet underrated Barnabé Hardy and... Balmain).

I am very glad. I can only condone that trend. I have spent years buying coats or overcoats and taken them to the tailor immediately to get the waist taken in, so that I would get that X or even Y shape I love... Now, there is quite a lot of clothing which shape I do like.

* ask Garance if you cannot see what I mean by perfecto!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:28 PM) : 

I want to know what the bots are too! that style is a perfect fit up here in the NW.


Blogger ringtales said ... (6:51 PM) : 

i love this coat. My husband is one of those men that likes his shirts loose, his pants loose, and his coats bulky, but he's slim and i am convinced he'd look great in something like this. Does anyone have a suggestion where i could find something like this online? we live in Montréal.


Blogger Hana Carlton said ... (6:53 PM) : 

that is easy to look slim if you start as tiny guy :)


Blogger ~Gursimran (Mattu) Sandhu Sibia~ said ... (6:59 PM) : 

leave any garment to an Italian to rock! :)

I love the mix of urban (the distressed jeans without being overly distressed) and the great outdoors (those shoes!). this guy looks effortlessly cool.

Blogger Kathleen said ... (9:39 PM) : 

I'm not feeling too much "lumber jack" going on here at all except for the boots, and being an old combat boot wearing 80's girl, I've got to love his boots. He is clean and crisp and definitely owns his look. Love the low slung jeans which I normally don't go for. He's a cutie this is for sure!


Blogger Fashion Nerd said ... (10:10 PM) : 

I lov street style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:12 PM) : 

He looks really nice, but I'm not getting "lumberjack" from his clothes at all, save for maybe the boots.

Anonymous HMS said ... (11:40 PM) : 

He needs to pull his pants up. Great boots, great top. But pull the pants up, makes him look like a kid. It looks like he does not have a butt.

This styles has been seen in the north-west coast (basically a uniform) for at least the past 5 years. Maybe more.

Technical jackets like this can be found at many Outdoors type stores.

Honestly, this guy thought maybe five seconds about putting this outfit together. It works, sure. (despite the baggy-butt pants) but is it sartorial?

Looks like green Red Wing moc toe boots to me. Well worn too. I am wearing the very same boots today.

You can't wear too many layers with a trim-cut pea coat, that's the beauty of it.

I love this coat. His style is perfect.
It's a nice street style.


Blogger 82Brute said ... (7:52 AM) : 

I'm curious about his multi-directional hair. It almost looks like he has a fur head band across the top of his brow. I like this whole urban lumberjack look and the slimmer is definitely a better way of doing it. Even though it's a knit, the collar really has some nice body to it to stand up like that.

Blogger Bronwyn said ... (9:07 AM) : 

He looks excellent!
That said, he doesn't look very "urban lumberjack" to me... until you see his boots.
Also, I agree with "HMS" who mentioned that he really needs better-fitting trousers, no?
However, in response to "HMS," isn't sartorial style something that you can wear every day? He's well-dressed and casual. Just sayin'


Blogger CINCHED AT THE WAIST said ... (10:08 AM) : 

everything but his face says lumberjack, jaja i love that.


Blogger The Lady Philosopher said ... (11:14 AM) : 

totally agree--dont like bulky.
BUT is he cold?


Blogger anthony said ... (12:19 PM) : 

It's lovely although I'd like it a little longer. Only one question: is it warm?


Blogger quinn the eskimo said ... (12:38 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:55 PM) : 

There is nothing "Lumberjack" about his outfit. I don't understand that reading. His worker boots don't communicate that either—and there is nothing trendy about them at all. In fact, they are probably the antithesis of trendy. He just looks like a normal guy—stylish, but not a fashion minion who is trying too hard to look chic. He's also not slimming down the look—he's slim. I must admit... he does look great, though!



Anonymous Chris Forrette said ... (1:25 PM) : 

Those shoes are awesome -- do you happen to know how one might find them?

great!!!squarzi group colpisce ancora...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:32 PM) : 

Chris @ 1:25: So many companies make that style of boot that it's hard to determine the exact make. They look like Red Wing boots to me, but they usually don't have silver eyelets for the shoelaces. They could be an older model, though. They're probably an overpriced Italian knock-off of traditional work boots.


Blogger Bonnie said ... (2:47 PM) : 

He looks fantastic.
A lovely piece of eye candy AND a gorgeous outfit.
He's perfect. <3
He should come to the U.S. and show these men bums how to dress.

He's hot


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

maybe its because im from the west coast where everyone dresses like this, but this guy doesn't look like he's rocking the lumberjack at all. skinny jeans? a blue sweater? Those boots are no lumberjack boots, those are carpenter soles, lumberjacks have treads. those look like eastcoast Alden's. looks more like a carpenter if anything.


Blogger reigs said ... (11:03 AM) : 

If you're thinking of buying this kind of boot go for Redwing or Thorogood moc toe as the shape is better and they age really well.

Btw this workwear look has been popular in London/Brighton for over a decade now since we could get the brands (Carharrt/Dickies/Redwing etc) here in the UK (although it's way cheaper and way more fun to come and get them from NY) I like the way that english brands like Barbour are so poular in NY too - it's all a great big fashion melting pot!

Blogger Liz S said ... (8:23 AM) : 

I don't know if I'm seeing things but his pea coat looks like a good quality polar fleece on my monitor, although can't tell if it's pullover or zip up. If this is so, this style of dress is very common here on the rural and semi rural outskirts of Sydney and has been for years (decades) really.

To be more stylish and stay more true to rural, a woollen jacket /pea coat would work best.

Deep navy on deep blue denim with earth brown quality leather can never look bad IMHO! A white shirt for the ladies and a cotton check country shirt for the guys underneath is then perfect on the eyes for warmer days.

This guy has a very cute smile!
