    Noteworthy: suede desert boot, denim jacket for an interesting twist.

    From the toggle jacket, green cords down to the ever and always -will- be classic desert boots.  He just needs a good skull cap, he looks cold.

    The look is absolutely great. The colors he wears are bold and fabulous. Good job Nick, I wish all guys could pull off a bow tie, green pants, and suede shoes like you do.

    I’d like to say great look, it’s got some knowledge to impart to all of us on how you can develop a sense of style that is both universally noticed and appreciated as well as entirely your own, by being unabashedly you.

    The pants are not cords, they are Milano fit pants from Brooks Brothers.  I’m sad that no one noticed I was wearing a bow tie…The jean jacket, my buddy Jordan and I run a blog as well…

    I try to incorporate at least one piece of denim in every outfit

    Are the pants even cords and where are they from?  Please and thank you.

    Coming from a particularly cold climate (I have been in -40 degree weather), I have to say that I am a fan of this look.  Multiple layers are very difficult to pull off with warm clothes, and this fellow manages to have many distinct layers without appearing to be overly encumbered.  The shirt, sweater, overcoat look is dull and usually monotone, whereas here we have colours, fabrics and patterns all mixed up and coexisting. 

    To those who criticize, I would love to see somebody pull off the model-from-Milan skin-tight fit that seems to be preferred while maintaining both warmth and full use of the arms.  This picture, to me, highlights functionality, which is very preppy.

    I was all set to give a negative comment, but New York this week was so bitterly cold, I salute his layering. Anything to keep that wind at bay.
    I also have a special place in my heart for toggle coats.

    A huge positive I see in this is he looks comfortable, something that can take you very far when dressing.  Sometimes in the winter when everything fits right with layers it causes you to be uncomfortable. This may not be seen in a picture, but is the worst thing possible to see in real life. Duffle coats are supposed to fit loosely as well. I also think the jean jacket brings a little edge to the look.  It’s a thumbs up from me, even if it needs a few tweaks.

    I think he looks great. It looks like the jean jacket just happened to be what was closest to his bed when he got up this morning. Sort of a charming idea.

    Just so I’m clear, this dude is wearing a white shirt, cardigan sweater, jean jacket, duffle coat, a scarf, green corduroys, and desert boots?  I see.

    Nice to see a different shade of green besides the standard forest in this season. The vibrant pants are complemented by the muted red vest (cardigan?) and the dark coat. A great look.

    Always great to keep winter “warm” with some color, kind of Christmasy. Glad he can pull off layering so well unlike myself.
