I saw this picture earlier today and I found myself perplexed about why this guy was photographed in the first place. I understand that Mr. Schuman is all about photographing classic examples of sprezzatura, or disheveled elegance, but this specific case seems to cross over into the realm of sloppy. It's almost as if this dude was hanging out at his apartment in jeans and a white tee only to remember he had to hit up a fashion show so he threw on a cardigan (waistcoat?) and a sportcoat. And he didn't even bother to tuck his t-shirt in either. If I was this guy the initial jeans and a tee would have been fine, but then again I'm not getting invited to exclusive fashion cult gatherings. Thoughts? Cool casual elegance or straight up sloppiness?
