Love the Look: Precociously Stylish

Otto may only be 15 but already this young Finn is mixing up eras and cultural references with dazzling verve.
The punk look would have been fairly run of the mill, were it not for the slicked back quiff and staid retro glasses which bring a bit of life to the look. Attempt a similar look by mixing styles from two different eras and finding a common cultural thread that unites them, like for instance mixng ’80s ska looks with ’50s teddy boy styles.

Love the Look: chinos and vintage tee

Every once in a while you stumble upon a trusty outfit formula which you can use and reuse to your heart’s content. For me it’s bright tights, vintage skirts, lace ups and a men’s cardie, when I’m stuck for inspiration I can wear umpteen variations of this outfit before I run out of looks.
Back to menswear, it seems that CA has stumbled upon a failsafe outfit formula, his combination of vintage tee, chinos, quirky belt and cardigan can have a dozen different permutations but still look fresh.

Love the Look: Summer Envy

I bring you this fine picture of a young man in shorts and t-shirt not to taunt you but to remind you of warmer times.

His madras check shorts and paisley scarf is a clever match, perhaps a subtle reference to Indian origins of the two prints? The rolled sleeves on the white t-shirt add a bit of texture and provide a simple counterpoint to the busyness of the prints. Update a plaid shirt with a paisley scarf for winter take on the look. If you crave the original look then in the meantime keep marvelling at just how short the shorts are and remember, it’s only 8 months till June.

Nothing warms my cockles as much as they sight of these two brothers with their matching Lego heart brooches and name knuckledusters. They’ve also matched the colour of their jackets, with the younger one wearing the exact same puffa I’m sure I had as a youth and the elder wearing a lightweight nylon windcheater, sweet!

Love the Look: Tommi on Hel Looks

Twenty-two year old Josh Hartnett lookalike Tommi has put together a cracking outfit using some quite simple pieces. I like the tie tucked into the shirt to show off the new buttons he added.
The colour of the khakis is quite crucial to the look, in a more beige tone the outfit wouldn’t be as effective but the greenish hue of the trousers add interest. Note the rolled-up trouser legs, a quick and easy way to update your look. A word of warning though, don’t go too high or you’ll resemble London gig promoter Josh Weller (nice hair, shame about the trews).

Love the Look: green cardigan

This man’s outfit is an exercise in faux simplicity: the slouchy cardigan, loose fit jeans and slipperesque moccasins all lull you into a false feeling of insouciance.

Take another look and you notice how the belt and gold buttons pick up the colour of the shoes. This adds richness and warmth to the outfit and contrasts with the flat grey blouson. The white t-shirt peeking through gives a jolt of freshness and the neatly tied neckerchief adds another layer of interest.

Love the Look: Sebasatian Weckman

I tried unsuccessfully to translate the accompanying text to this fine photgraph but the results were utter gibberish. I suppose for now all we need to know is that Mr Weckman cuts a handsome figure in a red cardigan and rumpled cream slacks. The neat trainers are a nice touch and allow the cardigan to take centre stage.

If you can speak Suomi drop me an email and let me know what they’re saying!

Love The Look: patterned jumper

I recently stumbled over Glam Canyon and saw this charming picture of a eccentricly dressed young man in London.
It’s so chirpy I want to frame it and have it on my desk, and the pose is just fantastic. The jumper obviously makes the outfit but the glasses and textured cords give balance to the look and stop it from becoming a showpiece. A true fashion inspiration!

Love The Look: Men at Kris Van Assche, Paris

By Will Reid on September 29th, 2008

The Kris Van Assche show was bound to attract some of the fash-pack’s best-dressing men and with the help of The Sartorialist, we need not fly to Paris to savour the front-row fashion savoir-faire.

These guys are both rocking fairly androgynous looks and as Isabelle mentioned earlier, it’s no secret that Doc Martens are the industry’s hot (but slowly cooling) item. I like the other man’s over-sized bag but what interests me the most is his headscarf. D&G featured Queen-chic headscarves on their runway last season and being of Scottish origin, I fail to not feel a slight home-sickness when faced with high-fashion previously seen in my gran’s wardrobe.

Fashion inspiration comes when you least expect it!

Love the Look: Jaakko on Hel Looks

jaako hel looks love the look.jpg
It’s a simple look but Jaakko’s tonal outfit posted on Hel Looks a few days ago hits the fashion spot. Breaking up the monotony with a patterned scarf is a wise move and he shows that black and brown can be worn together (more about this soon) without incurring the wrath of the fashion gods. He namechecks Raf Simons, A.P.C and Surface to Air in his outfit rundown and on top of that he is rocking a pretty amazing moustache, bravo!

Love The Look: Joshua Jackson Looks Pretty Good For An Ex-Dawson Creek Star

By Will Reid on September 4th, 2008

joshjackson.jpgThis week’s ‘Love The Look’ sees Joshua Jackson, and boyfriend of Diane Kruger, looking incredibly dapper in a Hollywood screen-star suit. I’m guessing that, by the waistcoat, details and fact that just about every Hollywood man at the moment is hooked, that the suit is by Tom Ford but who care’s about a lack of originality when you’ve made this much effort!

The details are the key: the perfect black buttons, the patent glint of the shoes, the bold bow-tie and silk (yet classy) lapel of the jacket. Joshua was attending the Jaeger-Le Coultre Gala at the 65th Venice Film Festival and while most men would look a bit pants next to a Chanel muse and seasoned-wearer of Dior, Elie Saab and Prada, Jackson proves he’s a worthy sartorial opponent.
