    where are all the men like this in my neighborhood!? I frequently see them on this blog but scarcely see them anywhere in my real life. Too many hipsters, what’s a girl to do? This man (like all your others) is on point!

    The clothing fits well and I like the loafers much more than in the other picture.

    Can we just talk about the jacket?  The glen plaid with a trim silhouette is amazing. Tradition with a tailored fit. I want it!

    I like this look. Thumbs up.

    I might not like everything each subject presented is wearing, however I can often find a few things in each photo that present ideas I can incorporate into my own wardrobe.

    For me, colors in the photos are really not that important. Like paint on a house, they are subject to individual taste and easily changed. Would I wear a purple sweater and a pink shirt to a board meeting? Probably not. Change the sweater to navy or the shirt to tan and this is a look I can use. And my ankles are way, way too glow in the dark white at this point to go without socks :).

    The shirt/sweater combo is genius!  Love the peekaboo of color.

    unfortunately, I believe these are the Hand-Sewn Penny Loafers from Ralph Lauren.  I say unfortunately, because as a broke college student they are just another pair of beef-roll loafers I cannot afford.  There has to be a pair out there!

    I like the Blazer and the Shirt.

    Dude is on point one-hunnid, rockin’ the colors well and although not my cup-o-tea, his jeans are nice fitted.

    Why isn’t his number in the noteworthy section? ;)

    Loving everything about this look… yes indeed!

    A better option for this otherwise perfectly turned gent: old school subway tokens (see ebay) rather than pennies.

    What a fine young gentleman this must be, how much care and thought went into what he put on that morning speaks alot to his person

    Fantastic look. He’s got it right for sure. Loafers look excellent.

    Great look - love the purple sweater + sport jacket with the patch breast pocket.

    This gentleman looks sharp.

    This is really well put together. Great use of color with the purple v-neck sweater and pink shirt. The sport coat is really well tailored.

    One of my favorite posts of recent memory.  Fantastic sport coat.

    I love the entire look. Like AEV said, excellent and solid.


    AEV left a comment on 3/21/2011 at 2:55 PM:

    I don’t believe Oak St. makes a full strap/low cut loafer like this….I’m getting a Cole Haan vibe.


    Tommy V. left a comment on 3/21/2011 at 2:47 PM:

    This is a great look. Those look like Oak Street Bootmakers loafers.


    Elizabeth V. left a comment on 3/21/2011 at 2:38 PM:

    He’s obviously comfortable with his appearance, as well he should be.


    Tito left a comment on 3/21/2011 at 2:32 PM:

    Now this is how is DONE!


    AEV left a comment on 3/21/2011 at 2:26 PM:

    Excellent. I don’t, personally, like low vamp loafers like his…but the look is more than solid.


    BJP left a comment on 3/21/2011 at 2:18 PM:

    Sharp. Great look.


    Vineyarder left a comment on 3/21/2011 at 1:55 PM:

    Love the interplay of the jacket, sweater and shirt. I’m less crazy about the jeans, but they’re not bad at all. Excellent look overall.
