Why Not? | Letting the Belt Hang Out

Browsing through my favorite blogs, I found this photo today. Note the belt here. It's hard not to as it's just kind of... hanging out. Was this gentleman on the street trying too hard to look like he wasn't trying? Was this perhaps an accident or a subtle attempt at sprezzatura? I'd like to say the latter, and a successful attempt at that. Notice how you are better able to see his layering job thanks to the belt pushing the jacket aside. You get another look at the cardigan and dress shirt you'd otherwise only see up top. I wonder how many people pointed this out that day and told him his belt needed to be tucked in.
