On the Street....Preparing for Pitti, Florence

I'm getting my wardrobe ready for the upcoming Pitti Uomo in Florence.

I love the idea of a tailored jacket with sportier shorts.

Two years ago I tried a few very casual, unconstructed cotton sport coats (45RPM, Junya, and Engineered Garments to be exact) but the lack of structure and sculpting in the high-waist made the look too shapeless for my tastes.

I'm not saying that the option above is the perfect scenario, but it's a very good reference point.

Actually, last week in Milan I found a great cotton sport coat at Piombo. The jacket fits like the one above, but the upper-sleeve is slimmer and the washed cotton gives the jacket a sportier feel.

I have to write more about Piombo later. If you don't know it, imagine an Italian, super chic version of J.Crew.

i do like the mix between casual and sports. but not too sure about the look. theres something not right here.

Love the look, but what about shoes for this?

 

Blogger indis said ... (9:11 AM) : 

combining things and getting unique results is something that I favor a lot but, these things should be conceptually relevant. In my opinion a tailored jacket and combat shorts are one of the worst combination a man can wear :( sorry for that but I find them very unharmonious. anyways, I love your blog and it inspires me all the time.

Blogger the style crusader said ... (9:20 AM) : 

hmmm... definitely not too crazy about this combo. very traditional blazer worn with very traditional blue shirt.... untucked and paired with army cargo shorts? what's he wearing on his feet? if my husband tried to leave the house like this i'd ask him if he was half asleep? looks totally confused... going to the park or to an office? straight chino shorts (no pockets/no camo) would have been better in my books... this looks slightly confused. xx

I really can't decide if I like this or not. I like the idea of it, but don't think the finished result quite works. Perhaps if the shorts weren't so casual.

I really like the concept, but perhaps with another type of shorts besides army cargo shorts. Something a little more classic perhaps. I think the look could also translate well for women -- a nice fitted blazer with some tasteful shorts.

Blogger oliwia said ... (10:52 AM) : 

the idea is great - chic, great for hot weather, but i think this particular look is just wrong. the shorts are simply hideous, not matching the jacket and combined with this shirt making the man's legs look extremely short.
you should definitely try this idea though. camel and military shorts would be great.

The idea is nice but it doesn't work for him...

Why untuck the shirt?
And why the army cargo shorts?

I think he would have looked much better if he had more elegant shorts with a belt and the shirt tucked in.

 

Anonymous John Wesley said ... (3:22 PM) : 

This combination is drawing some of the most ambivalent responses I've seen. The jacket is terrific and it suits you.

The problem is the shorts. Rather than an interesting juxtaposition, this one's not working. Perhaps it's the camo-cargo thing -- which I've been sick of for the last 2 years.

There must be other super-casual options worth a try.

From my own reactiona nd the comments above, you cant put just anything together and have it look good. Sometimes it looks odd and trying-too-hard.

i guess it´s a nice idea, but i don´t really see those pieces together.

maybe a different pair of shorts (classier ones, maybe) would´ve done better job. he has confidence to wear army shorts, but not everyone can pull this look off...

This is actually one of very few of your posts that I can truly say that I thoroughly hate. Love the shirt, nice jacket, but I think the sunglasses are a little tacky and the shorts just look dumb. I do, however, agree that the concept is interesting and would be a nice summer look/feel...and I imagine the Sartorialist could do it much better!

the atmospheric clash is even bigger than the formal one. To me it`s difficult to get the story that is told, the personality that is expressed or the mood this man may be in. I am missing the dialog and the communication that fashion is about.

Really tough to pull that look off, but he does it very well. I think it looks awesome.

I don't know. If this outfit were a hairstyle, it would be a mullet. Business on top, party on the bottom. I'm not sure it really works. Like the idea of mismatching styles, but this just seems to miss, in my opinion.

I love the jacket and the untucked shirt; the shorts jar which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I think it may be a pattern break too far. I applaud him for trying though, and don't believe there is such a thing as trying too hard.

Is there such a thing as a 'perfect scenario' in and of itself?

this look works on so many levels allowing men to play with conceived traditional male looks. Not too disimilar from the previous post. they only thing that is truly missing it what sart mentionned in his dialogue re his Piombo purchase. The blazer needs to be more fitted and slimmer sleeve. This is a male version of the Balmain look.

I think you could pull if off nicely if you stick to the casual undertones this look has going for it.

No, it looks sloppy. Shorts are too casual, shirt untucked. This person is obviously someone with a great wardrobe and is well groomed, not scruffy enough to pull off this look. Sub in white jeans, or even regular, worn, jeans, for these shorts.

The good look of this pic is more about the man pulling it off than the clothing combo. He makes it work. Unfortunately, I don't think its great. A schlubby friend of mine does stuff like this, and more because an AE mannequin circa 2005 told him to rather than because he is legit interested in his style.

 

Blogger Lit Victoria said ... (1:49 AM) : 

I feel like this look is sloppy. It's like there's a disconnect between the upper half and the lower half. Perhaps it's the camo. Perhaps it's just me.

I love the look of shorts with a tailored jacket, but when I imagine it in my head the fabrics are cottony and light, in whites and sky blues. The shorts are cut above the knee and the sleeves are rolled up. And he's wearing loafers. And a mean tan.

You cannot even put camo cargo shorts in the same category as a "super chic version of J. Crew." There is nothing chic about cargo shorts and the only thing simular to J. Crew is the top half of the outfit.

a sports coat with shorts looks great if you pair it with the right pair of shorts though.

I notice that people who have served in the armed forces don't wear camouflage. Yet those who would never be in the military do. I wonder if service men find it slightly offensive. Personally I think it is a lovely pattern, but I always hesitate to wear it. Especially now that many have returned to the states with haunting memories.

He looks great but no so much because what he is wearing but because he is at ease with himself and confident.The don't-try-this-yourself look.

I can't believe how old-fashioned everyone is. This is a great look.
But let the haters hate! ...with their shirts and creativity tucked in.

Does he work behind a counter or something? A newscaster perhaps? I do not understand this combo at all.

He is handsome and it's a nice shot (as always)

Juxtaposition at its finest. You have to have mad confidence to pull it off.

i actually like this, and i will wear it with pride. it reminds of when little boys wear their cowboy boots with some funky shorts and some type of t shirt

I like the IDEA. I love when people combine two styles that wouldn't make sense. But I don't like the man. I don't know what it is, but I feel like this look could be pulled off by a number of people. Just not this guy.

This doesn't even look mismatched to me --more like he forgot to put the rest of either the top half or bottom half on.--sorry--the concept is great but I feel a tailored casual short in khaki would have been what was needed.

Could be good but shorts need to be better. Ditch the pockets.

Think he's working it better than should be got away with - puts me in mind of the quote by Cyril Connolly on Vita Sackville-West - "She looked like Lady Chatterley above the waist and the gamekeeper below."

i think it looks a little pretentious, like he put too much thought into it and it still doesn't work out for him. also something doesn't feel right about the proportions.

Sportier? Really? It's not like the guys going to play volley ball in that later. How about business casual up top and Nick Lachey on the bottom? No, just me?!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:56 PM) : 

Adore it. Looks like something my husband would dream up, which is of course why I married him.
