First Impression:

This guy comes off extremely confident. It’s obvious that he isn’t afraid to be bold with his style, but at the same time, knows how to keep it refreshingly clean and simple.

The breakdown:

I love this look. It’s an eye-catching outfit that’s easy to put together and perfect for a weekend party.

I see a lot of blazer and graphic tee combos these days, but this particular version will definitely stand out.

For one, the well-fitting white blazer is an automatic head-turner. He amps up the contrast even more by setting it against a black shirt. The bold white print on the t shirt dresses down the look, making it a little more playful and casual. If you opt for a graphic tee, just make sure it’s simple and tasteful.

Usually with this type of look, you might see guys wearing blue jeans, but I love the way that he keeps it color coordinated with the jet black jeans and separates it from his shirt with a white belt.

The best part of this look:

This is the little detail that elevates this look. He uses the lining of his blazer sleeve as an opportunity to show off an awesome pattern of colors. Set against a black & white palette, it adds that surprising concentration of color and an element of class.

When I showed this look to one of my coworkers, she initially thought it was “pretty hot,” until she saw this little detail and decided she completely loved it.

The aviator sunglasses always seem to evoke a larger-than-life, celebrity status impression.

Lastly, I like the way he adds a pair of clean white sneakers, as opposed to dress shoes, to create a fresh look that’s fit for any casual occasion.

    I know a few people that would go gaga over this look. Unfortunately I can’t stand close-fit/slim jeans. How do you think it would come off with something, not baggy, but loose?

  • Cruz

    i had the same reaction as your co-worker, thought the look was cool… but the detail in the lining is genious, very intentional with every piece, not too much, but enough to please the eye…

    Hey man! keep up the lookbooks. What i wanted to say is what about instead of a black t shirt here , you put on a pink one or another “pastel” colour. I think it will make it more playful or more for summer

    love

    Hello Ben,

    This is definitely my style, black & white with a touch of personality. it’s good to know that what I like is out there too.
    Thanks.

    Bonus points for using the slim jim black coated.

    Just a tip if anyone gets them though. The longer they go unwashed, the shinier they get. They end up with an almost leathery shine. It will however go away as soon as you wash them.

    They’re really a fantastic pair of jeans.

  • Yavor

    Eye catching, a bit of tokyo in it. Gonna steal the look this spring. Am a big fan of clean white sneakers and clean design shoes in general.

  • The black/grey/white look on yesstyle is pretty awesome too.

  • Marcin

    YES! I love it! I’m going to def. try it this summer!

  • Cal

    Love these “lookbook” deals.

    Especially this one;

    Might try taking this look out with some of my friends.

    See how it works out.

    Keep ’em coming.

    This might be a dumb question, but is it fashionable to show of your belt in such a way? (By tucking in only a small part of your Shirt at the front)

    Thanks for the lookbooks!

  • Alex

    Lorenzo i think it is since showing the whole belt means you are in a small t-shirt and that’s never good in my opinion.
