DRESSING UP WITH OVERALLS

EIGHT MARCH, TWO THOUSAND AND TEN

Mr. ANDREW T. VOTTERO photographed two pairs of overalls in New York, showing the styling touches that stave off any traces of a hayseed appearance. Click on the image above to see both looks. Both overalls are vintage, both are from the New York boutique CHERRY, and both are paired with evening styles to enhance the sort-of three-piece-suit effect of the attached bib and trousers. Nice!

In the first image, Mr. JOSHUA KNOWLTON of New York wears white LEVI’S overalls with a navy blazer by PATRICK ERVELL, a black YSL shirt, and a grey PRADA tie. *Click*, and in the second image, JOSHUA models a pair of blue WASHINGTON DEE CEE overalls by WASHINGTON MFG CO., worn with a white jacket with patch and string details by COMME DES GARÇONS.

  4. Style Salvage Steve:

    I usually tend to avoid overalls unless I’m doing a spot of paint sploshing but these looks are as fresh as a bright March morning. I might just give this a try. Thanks for the daily dose of inspiration.

  5. arnold:

    Really love the dungerees reminds me of these guys work

    pretty exciting time for menswear

  6. The Urban Naturalist:

    Too many ‘flashbacks’ of mid-90′s ‘overalls with one clip left hanging’ fad. Especially when accompanied by a tie-dyed undershirt.

  7. jimjam:

    I like them, think they’re great in fact, but I’d take off the tie and try for a more interestingly coloured shirt first

  8. Worldmanabouttown:

    I am surprising myself by being drawn to this look. Very Dexy’s Midnight Runners channeling hot dry summers in the city…

  9. Gordon:

    Seriously. Does no one remember the early 90s and kris kros and marky mark wearing these things around. it lasted maybe a month. Unless you are a pre-pubescent girl wearing overalls cut into shorts, this look doesn’t work. Everyone posting saying they like this, go to the sink and splash some cold reality on yer faces and come back and look again.

  10. Sean:

    Love the blue denim ones, very classic. I have a few pair.

  11. MR. RHAMIER AUGUSTE:

    Can’t agree with this one. It’s too soon for a revival and it doesn’t look modern enough for me

  12. No Underwear with Ovies!:

    Although, I’m not a really good looking dude like these guys. But, I do enjoy wearing my bib overalls. I’m of course dissappointed that most aren’t made in this country anymore. But, I’ll still wear’em anyway! AND NEVER WITH UNDERWEAR UNLESS IT’S WINTERTIME.

TWENTY

AUTUMN & WINTER 2014

And so, the curtain rises on a new issue of FANTASTIC MAN – the 20th edition, for Autumn & Winter 2014. Indeed, the mysterious mustachioed figure on its cover is double Oscar-winning Mr. CHRISTOPH WALTZ, an acting Austrian who, in defiance of Hollywood convention, has risen to international prominence in his sixth decade. In a vastly entertaining interview, the star of INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, DJANGO UNCHAINED, CARNAGE and now BIG EYES discusses the advantages and pitfalls of being a late bloomer. Elsewhere in this well-rounded issue, the chronicler of international fashion commerce Mr. IMRAN AMED is profiled, as is the exceptional Canadian author and artist Mr. DOUGLAS COUPLAND, plus the phenomenon of French-language cinema Mr. XAVIER DOLAN. The latter showcases his precocious versatility in an array of ravishing outfits. Speaking of matters fashionable, a definitive guide to the new season’s luscious WINTER COATS is proudly presented, and revered British critic Mr. NICHOLAS DE JONGH prescribes unusual getups to be worn for an opening night at the THEATRE. Those yearning for a cherished but DISCONTINUED PERFUME will hopefully find solace in a nostalgic reportage entitled ‘EXTINCT’. There’s plenty more besides, of course. Order now
