I admire his sense of style and his courage.

He looks so serious! But the outfit is great. Simple, yet stylish.

I met this guy at a party once. He was rapping.

Crikey, is it warm enough in NY for that outfit? I gotta move.

Impeccable style


Blogger Angel said ... (5:05 PM) : 

Its a very beautiful photo, but I have to questions the realisticness of his outfit. Who and where other than college can you pull this off? I would have say that everything is far to cropped even if I look at it in a fashion forward point of view.

Great hair and bag!



Blogger ash said ... (5:31 PM) : 

oxfords would have made this work better but i really like his look, even if i'm afraid he is going to get beat up by some bullies. ...oh, wait, he's an adult!

70's SOHO

I always wanted to be red....

Blogger Dina said ... (5:45 PM) : 

He's very urban-Amish, and yet it works...on him. Not something to be replicated, though.


Blogger Marin Dodouce said ... (5:51 PM) : 

L'homme le plus classe du monde! J'adore!


Anonymous Gabriel said ... (5:51 PM) : 

To me, this look has its roots in the British/Jamaican-influenced rude boy/suedehead look of the late '60s, which is reflected in almost every single detail: from the closely cropped hairstyle to the tucked-in short-sleeved button down shirt to the desert boots and thin suspenders.

And yet, he doesn't look dated or out of place at all; probably due to the timelessness of this style, and the fact that he put in little details of his own: the briefcase, avoiding socks, and the neutral color combination, for starters.

He's also taken the look in a less utalitarian, more elegant direction with the way he's mixed all these elements together (and by wisely avoiding chunky footwear). I really wonder how premeditated or calculated his choices were. Beautifully done, regardless!

The intensity of his face is great--you've captured a wonderful moment.

And of course I like the spot of red in the sea of neutrals.


Blogger Chez Carolinette said ... (7:50 PM) : 

Totally unexpected!
I loved your "eye" for those things!

Very retro silhouette. I love it!

Someone needs to tickle him, so serious.


Anonymous Cecilia said ... (8:20 PM) : 

He's kickin it in this outfit. It has just the right amount of quirk. I love this.


Blogger Tamra {ever swoon} said ... (9:01 PM) : 

Awesome street, which is why I call it home. Great bag.


Anonymous Jane said ... (9:20 PM) : 

Very vintage look. But I agree with the person who's not sure about the highwaters. Hmmmm...


Blogger Leyla Navab Artsilk Co. said ... (9:28 PM) : 

The color of his briefcase is beautiful...


Anonymous Bob Mack said ... (10:16 PM) : 

Its a nice clean look, well tailored, and flattering to his figure, however, the whole look creates associations with a schoolboy look from the 1920's or something. I don't know if grown men should ever look like little boys.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:02 PM) : 

just unroll your pants a bit more...please...all else is perfect...


Blogger Siriporn said ... (11:03 PM) : 

luv the look!


Blogger The Fancy Teacup said ... (11:22 PM) : 

I'm a total sucker for suspenders.
much love.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:52 PM) : 

Enlightened comments.I have a better sense of what's happening here. Initially I was bewildered upon spying this picture. This young chap's outfit reminds me of Monty Python's send up of 'challenged' youth!


Blogger friendandfaux said ... (11:56 PM) : 

Your eye is amazing, the pallets in the background, all the structures , the verticals - great photo


Blogger ZHENYA ZHURAVLYOVA said ... (12:07 AM) :

i am not at all sure about those cropped pants..xx meenal


Anonymous fox in the city said ... (2:53 AM) : 

I am sorry but those naked pale legs are not working for me.
However I love his face, he doesn't give a damn what I think of his trouser length.


Blogger Lee Hanson said ... (3:14 AM) : 

The briefcase looks vintage coach...I have the same one from the mid 80's in a darker brown....

If he tries to awaken the mothering instincts in the opposite sex, he sure is succeeding with me. Darling!

Now, this is a strong look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:20 AM) : 

This outfit is great. The colours and the background looks suitable together. I like this picture a lot!


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:39 AM) : 


I like the hair as well



Blogger Bojan said ... (6:48 AM) : 

great look! the bag is cool!


Blogger Explendid said ... (7:13 AM) : 

It reminds me of a man taken out of a gangster film, like travelling to the 50's


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:26 AM) : 

Sorry, I don't care for the pant length.

great look! :)


Blogger david said ... (8:47 AM) : 

Add a little bow tie and he would be spot on.


Anonymous blomquist said ... (9:14 AM) : 



Blogger lintmag said ... (9:33 AM) : 

I like an above ankle pant length, and I like a rolled up small sleeve, but not together. I think it looks better to have one regular, or even loose and long, than both halves looking as if you accidentally put the dryer on high for an hour. The proportions are just off, not in a good way, and it looks uncomfortable.
But obviously, I am in the huge minority with this opinion!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:18 PM) : 

Are those clip-on braces???


Blogger Laurence John said ... (12:43 PM) : 

unfortunately ankle boots cover the very bit that should be exposed; the ankle, not the bit of leg above it.


Blogger Sara said ... (12:48 PM) : 

Wow! He looks so serious. As if he just stepped out of the depression era kind of serious, yet it definitely works! Amazing.


Blogger Karen Minton, Studio Blog said ... (1:15 PM) : 

He pulls this look off splendidly, not many could I think!


Anonymous shervin nassi said ... (1:22 PM) : 

i like this girl
shes doing her own thing very original
theres something sad about her as well cant quite put my finger on it but i love it!


Blogger Jen said ... (3:30 PM) : 

Love everything above the waist - suspenders, cuffed short sleeves, the severe haircut and expression. Hate the trouser length - or maybe I would like it with a lighter colored shoe. I don't know, it just seems so off with the dark boot. His briefcase is amazing though.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:35 PM) : 

Not feeling those pants and shoes. just doesn't look right to me



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:34 AM) : 

He always has impeccable style.


Blogger broztom said ... (7:00 AM) : 

great style!!!


Blogger sammy wammy said ... (7:56 AM) : 

I like everything except the last 7 inches. the bare ankle sticking out the boot bothers me somehow. It looks uncomfortable doesn't flatter his legs at all. It turns it from cool and sharp to forest gump like imho


Anonymous Notcathy said ... (2:14 PM) : 

That was awesome! Cool!


Blogger Milan Boya said ... (2:58 PM) : 

I love vintage look!


Anonymous braces pro said ... (5:11 PM) : 

clip on braces are a don't. As are braces w/ belt loops. I like the overall look, though.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:32 PM) : 

Very difficult to take I won't!


Blogger MFP said ... (10:53 PM) : 

i dont usually like cropped pants but he pulls it off well! love the suspenders too!

Oh! i love your blog! i love clothes, and specialy men clothes

Anonymous TDccBB said ... (4:26 PM) : 

Would have liked it better if it weren't clipons and the shirt should have been a long sleeve. Never understood shortsleeve shirts. Just my 2 cents.


Blogger Boom Now said ... (5:58 PM) : 

Great look... perfect for the summer weather and who doesn't love some suspenders!
Great pic!

Ah, the subtle difference between baring some ankle and wearing trousers that are too short.

He looks like he's going to a Partei rally in 1933.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:41 AM) : 

I appreciate the courage, but it just seems too forced. Definitely interesting though! I dig the colors.


Anonymous titoley said ... (8:08 AM) : 

Totally dig for this look!!
Classic yet edgy!!


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:42 PM) : 

ridiculous pant length... just can't get used to this trend. I like men looking like men not boys
