The tailored wide leg was always where it was at! From Marithé + François Girbaud to the myriad of billowy and bell bottomed designs that swept us all through the 70's. This pictures a whole new kind of groovy. New lines and a whole new cool.


Blogger Y.A.R. said ... (4:50 PM) : 

Odd, but I like it!


Blogger GINGER FASHION MONSTERS said ... (4:52 PM) : 

Amazing! This guys has soooo much style. Men should be more brave about what they wear, because "different" can look brilliant when it's done right!


Blogger in Aie's shoes said ... (4:53 PM) : 

he rocks the wide legged trend!


Anonymous Amy Creyer said ... (4:53 PM) : 

Didn't you photograph him with a woman (possibly his girlfriend) a while back? I believe he was smoking in that photo too ;)


Blogger Danielle said ... (4:56 PM) : 

Hahaha crazy trousers! :)



Blogger dsquared said ... (4:57 PM) : 

I ve got the same fisherman's trousers from Thailand, so so comfortable to wear.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:59 PM) : 

I love his style...very personal and very confident! Love it!


Anonymous Stylethusiast said ... (5:00 PM) : 

brilliant silhouette....who's this guy? love his style


Blogger caribbelle said ... (5:09 PM) : 

wide leg trousers are a favorite of mine, but I like to see it balanced with a more fitted top. Interesting looks none the less. I wonder who he is?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:10 PM) : 

Brilliant way to take Thai Fisherman Pants beyond yoga classes and beaches!


Anonymous madeleine lundmark said ... (5:13 PM) : 

I havt the biege pants, they are beautiful..


Anonymous Amanda said ... (5:16 PM) : 

The smoking ruins it.


Anonymous rebecca said ... (5:18 PM) : 

There is something about the first shot that is striking (though I'm not a fan of the silhouette). I find the outfit, esp the pants, in the second image rather unflattering


Anonymous Wayde said ... (5:26 PM) : 

Wow! Who is this young man? Love the pants in the first photo and his coat in the second photo. Interesting shape: the cut of the trousers seem to elongate his figure. Dont like his hair.


Blogger Malo said ... (5:29 PM) : 

Those are some interesting pants man.

A lot of smokers in your photos. I know you're not a health inspector but still..


Blogger Maria Ana said ... (5:38 PM) : 

that is very different! I like it :)


Anonymous Rebecca Holt said ... (5:39 PM) : 

He is my second cousin! No lies, he is lovely and his name is Joel. xx *HI JOEL*


Blogger estela.pereira said ... (5:40 PM) : 

I hate cigarettes, but i loved both pictures! He has a great style! I feel sorry for guys sometimes, they dont have too many choices like we girls have, but if they have a cool personality and dare to take chances they can end up having a nice and stylish wardrobe.


Blogger La Petite Marmoset said ... (5:45 PM) : 

Never seen a guy wear pants like that--- he totally pulls it off!

Blogger Liese - The Street Diary said ... (5:47 PM) : 

great looks and the smoking definitely doesn't ruin it.



Blogger 2heels1flash said ... (5:56 PM) : 

wow! 90´s heritage!!!!


he has smthing special...yes!


Blogger The Gilded Youth Blog said ... (6:13 PM) : 

These looks are unreal. I am a huge fan of elephant pants-time to get ride of the tights! He proves they can be rocked equally by both men and women...makes me want fall to come so I can bring out the pants again.



Anonymous YogaSpy said ... (6:23 PM) : 

Prerequisite for wide-legged silhouette: Tallness. Thinness.

Otherwise they look like elephant legs.


Blogger Sarah said ... (6:53 PM) : 

The wide leg looks amazing. Individual style but he pulls it off.


Blogger Monsieur said ... (6:54 PM) : 

The grey pants are actually from that old Dior collection with the fire on the runway. Super thick wool and a very extreme wide leg but i guess they look better from the side.

And yes, i smoke like a chimney it's embarassing


Anonymous Wayde said ... (7:08 PM) : 

Wow, interesting shape, the pants seem to elongate his figure. Love the jacket in the second photo!

Blogger SAMANTHA said ... (7:57 PM) : 

bold and fantastic. i love these shots.



Blogger M.J.Woodbridge said ... (7:57 PM) : 

want & need the beige pants!!


Anonymous Maureen French said ... (7:58 PM) : 

The pants in the first picture are so interesting. They look to be like a "paper bag" waist, with attached sash. I'd love to know who the designer is...?


Blogger theTrendyDwarf said ... (7:59 PM) : 

I love that personal silhouette. Certainly not a look I could accomplish BUT I love the way this man pulls it off perfectly!
Check out my trendy blog!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:13 PM) : 

I'm so sick of the boring smoking comments. We're not children, we don't need the moral police saying "it's not ok to smoke!" just in case we wer in any doubt. Smoking looks sexy, like it or not. Save your preaching for church.


Blogger said ... (8:14 PM) : 

Generally I do like this silhouette. Reminds me old sailor’s uniform. But the second photo, the one with fur jacket, I find the silhouette (not the concept, just shape) very feminine. Don't you think?




Blogger Francesca said ... (8:19 PM) : 

those pants are amazing

Totally loving the 2 pictures...How great it is to enjoy fashion....

Blogger kathrynnova said ... (9:03 PM) : 

i knew a guy who would wear pants like that. he would slide around the hallways in them like he was playing baseball.


Blogger Shervin Nassi said ... (9:04 PM) : 

This guys is so classic vintage new age chaos!


Anonymous doc starr said ... (10:19 PM) : 

i think its hot that he has on wide legged pants & i love that coat! he does a greatv job at pushing the envelope. it totally works.

I love it on him but I am not ready for big pants again.

Love his haircut!

i love wide leg pant look bordering the floor, its a melting binding look but when you walk you can see the shoes and its divine

actually I don't like this model of trousers but they work on these guys! Great pics!


Anonymous foxinthecity said ... (4:31 AM) : 

hmm... not keen on all the smoking and his hair cut is a bit brutal but the trousers are great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:42 AM) : 

Great pants! Finally we might see some changes and say goodbye to those narrow short pants that we have seen sooooo much !!!
Fashion for tall and thin guys ! Get ready for some 30's looks to come back in the picture!

Anonymous Bob Mack said ... (4:42 AM) : 

I am very curious about this character. He has invested a lot of thought and money into creating a look that does not flatter his figure his body shape. Why?

I would love to hear his story.


Blogger KC said ... (5:37 AM) : 

he's definitely pulling that look off.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:16 AM) : 

Well he's his personal style, but I don't like it.


Blogger Bigio said ... (6:18 AM) : 

Love the pants!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:24 AM) : 

Both of these shots are interesting, and I believe they probably exemplify the subjects' personality more than we know. I'd be willing to bet that neither one of these guys woke up that morning and thought, "What should I wear today to look cool?" They just "got dressed."

I also find it somewhat amusing when the comments speculate about the branding of the clothes (Dior?). I bet if we could look at the tag, we wouldn't see a name we recognize.

And perhaps I'm a style prude, but the first thing I thought when I looked at the second photo was "the necklace ruins it."


Blogger Jessie said ... (7:45 AM) : 

men in bell bottoms is a very interesting combination. it's such an interesting and fabulous!! I love it.

pretty interesting style...kinda weird but interesting...hmmm


Blogger pinky said ... (10:21 AM) : 

dude got style! those heavy oxfords are AWESOME with the tibetan fisherman style wrap pants. Great idea.
His pants lengths are perfect INHO!


Blogger Daniel Hayashi said ... (11:19 AM) : 

I'm using pants like these since last summer, here in Brazil. But mine are made of linen. I thought I was the only one that liked these silhouette for man. It's nice to see other guys using. I need one for the winter too! :)


Blogger anthony said ... (11:30 AM) : 

I think those magnificent trousers need tucked in shirts and definitely no slouching.


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (11:41 AM) : 

very much a 90's feel to the entire look..from the bi-level hair to the super wide trousers.
done originally as a goth look..with black trousers.


Blogger Barrera said ... (11:44 AM) : 

i don't know if im convinced. the pants will have to grow on me, but i generally dont like wide leg pants on a man.


Anonymous tagatha said ... (12:29 PM) : 

There's something very comic book -like in both outfits: Mickey Mouse shoes in the first picture and I believe I've seen that fur coat, only longer, in a Disney comic from the 30's as well. And he's wearing both with a medieval haircut. Interesting!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:36 PM) : 

He's got serious style. Love the way he addresses his body type--guys are generally "expected" or "supposed to" have broad shoulders & be "V" shaped, but he turns his narrowness into a cool, stylized, striking from by reversing the expected. Nicely done!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:12 PM) : 

smoker in clown pants...ugh.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:43 PM) : 

I think these looks totally rock. I love the wide legged pants on him, he's very tall and thin. Otherwise he'd look like a beanpole. I also love the layers, I mean, he can pull it off, right?


Blogger Naftali Stern said ... (2:12 PM) : 

Interesting sense proportions. I really like his fragile gold necklace in the second pic.



Anonymous deetones said ... (2:36 PM) : 

though i appreciate personal style--all the power to him--i think this looks brutal, but thats just my opinion!


Blogger The Foolish Aesthete said ... (3:08 PM) : 

Very interesting trousers. The cinch tie wide-legged style is actually common among the South East Asian males. I have Balinese and Malaysian trousers (in traditional print) designed like that!


Blogger Walking around with a scapel said ... (3:08 PM) : 

he is obviously loving his wide legged pants. He would have looked lovely in skinnies too with his lanky frame. What strikes me most is his devil-may-care air about him. Love an attitude. :) Great shots of the bloke.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:07 PM) : 


I don't think i've ever had so many people discussing me before!

Thanks for the lovely pictures Scott. I hated the shows in January. It was too cold to wear what I wanted and I suck at the 7 day suitcase wardrobe. So at least I have a golden snapshop of a miserable moment.




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

Great line for these trousers. Wide legs, narrow top often works (far better than the reverse, in any case!)


Blogger lolo said ... (8:42 PM) : 

Love the thai wrap pants in the first picture. I used to wear those all the time but they never worked so well for me as they do for this fellow.


Blogger kelly frances said ... (10:28 PM) : 

wow, look at those trousers!!

Blogger Liv said ... (7:11 AM) : 

the trousers are kind of taking over everything


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:00 AM) : 

I do love skinnies though... Haha, but seriously this looks quite nice, the second one more so. The grey pants and that coat! :O
Smoke looks fantastic in photo's, and it's obviously something this guy does (both photos non?) and I wish people wouldn't get all high and mighty about it. Personal choice guys. Get over it.
Someone buy me that coat......

This is so good on the eye. He has poise. The woolen material falls so nicely. I will copy.

amo su estilo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:02 AM) : 

Joel, I think you look brilliant and keep on doing what you want to. I can see from the first shot that no-one around you looks remotely dressed like you. They are very regular even the green pants. You give me inspiration for taking a stand, fighting the dullness and making great lines with clothing. Red and blue are great. I love the black jacket. It's hard for me to tell if it is women's or men's but it's really beside the point. A great jacket is a great jacket.
Did you see the recent pic on this blog of the gent with icecream? You'd look pretty cool holding one of those also!



Blogger Diane said ... (12:10 PM) : 

What a sweet style! Womanish elements ie: wide leg trousers, faux fur coat, necklace, with menswear layers and boy cut. Uber-cute and original!
