Another great look and wonderful layers!
whats up with the quality? :/
What a unique mix! The light is pretty in this photo. Very soft.

I like it!
loving his jacket!
talk about layers galore! Love the tweed jacket and how his colorful cuffs peak out. Thank you Scott!

Fantastic jacket- I love the use of layers and the mix of colours.http://www.styleisalwaysfashionable.blogspot.com
January 10, 2011 at 1:40 pm
Now that's a good look.
January 10, 2011 at 1:41 pm
this reminds me of photos of my dad when he was younger in korea in the 70s…
January 10, 2011 at 1:44 pm
I'm SO excited to see your Seoul series. I'm from Seoul, but living in the US, so your images make me extremely homesick. Seoul's a great fashion city, although it's eclipsed by other Asian powerhouses like Tokyo. Thanks for posting these!!
Oh wow, I like his layering. It took me a minute to realize that he's wearing a blazer underneath the vest. The peaks of color are working for me!!

aaahhhh…me like! :)
Very creative and he looks great!
I like it. How is it that you find such fashionable people?
January 10, 2011 at 1:50 pm
love the different textures and colors in the layers. and despite the multiple layers – it doesn't look bulky or too busy, lovely.
January 10, 2011 at 1:51 pm
wow! layers upon layers upon layers..love how it didn't make him look bulky.
January 10, 2011 at 1:52 pm
Love the exposure together with the depth of field in this shot.
January 10, 2011 at 1:55 pm
oooh! is he wearing a winter/snow vest over a blazer??? LOVE it :))
Love how sunny this photo is :D
January 10, 2011 at 1:56 pm
Layers upon Layers! Reminds me of the Friends episode where Joey puts on all of Chandlers clothes to piss him off! LOL
Love the colors!
A western cowboyesk look in South Korea. Wonderful photo!
January 10, 2011 at 1:57 pm
layered up! hmm like his blazer..underneath
January 10, 2011 at 1:59 pm
Stylin' dude. Nice bokeh, too.
January 10, 2011 at 2:01 pm
Love the tailored look, layers, different textures. I think you captured the quintessential men's fashion in modern korea.

Nice pic ;)http://magmoiselle.co/
January 10, 2011 at 2:11 pm
I like how it's crisp and smart but layered and complex at the same time.
This reminds me of what Michael Cera might look like in Korea.I can see why you were drawn to him. Bright red sweater, the "business blue" shirt, and what is that little bit of green at his collar, great colors that could easily be overlooked, the warm vest atop the sportcoat, feel like Issey Miyake choices. He looks very sure of himself and comfortable with his sartorial choices and isn't that what it's all about?
January 10, 2011 at 2:12 pm
I think if you took all of these pieces and separated them and told someone to put them on, you would certainly get push back but this is working for him…thanks for sharing! Cheers!
January 10, 2011 at 2:16 pm
Wow, the layering here is incredible!
January 10, 2011 at 2:19 pm
that vest is epic!
January 10, 2011 at 2:21 pm
He's wearing a lot of shirts!! His neck is full of different colours! But he has style!! I love your blog!!http://www.tinynicethings.blogspot.com
January 10, 2011 at 2:26 pm
Why asian people only have these incredible sense of style that makes originality look even more great (or sometimes worse)???I should take example on them..
January 10, 2011 at 2:29 pm
OH! AMAZING OUTFIT! I really like it!

Makes me want to go to Korea!! Fabulous!

I love how there are layers of colours. Kelly Green, Royal Blue, Red, Beige, Brown and then the Peachy Orange….
Then there is all the peek a boo's

green thing at his collar is a classic paisley ascot, vest looks rather watanabe-ish to me.really great look.
Whoa…..They got some style over there in South Korea ! ♥
January 10, 2011 at 2:48 pm
I like the vest but I'm not sure about it over such a seemingly nice tweed blazer. I do like the hints of red.
January 10, 2011 at 2:51 pm
ITA, great layer combo
January 10, 2011 at 2:57 pm
Korea guys are killing it , real distinct style very nice mix of classic & irreverent. specially fond of the green bandana round the neck.

January 10, 2011 at 3:17 pm
This shouldn't work, but it does–something about the proportions, lines, and layering is just right. Very cool.
January 10, 2011 at 3:22 pm
I like everything except the scarf, he has too much going on around his neck, one too many colors
January 10, 2011 at 3:31 pm
You've got a great eye! I'm Korean and it's funny because I'm always lamenting about how I rarely see fashionable Korean men with unique style but I may need to reevaluate this now. I heard it's freezing in Korea right now and I see a peek of the snow in the back but this guy is so chill~!
January 10, 2011 at 3:35 pm
It's so interesting to see how differently fashion bloggers see the people of a culture when they travel there. Facehunter went to Korea awhile ago, but he only captured a certain style of people while there, and I think he missed out on a lot. You, on the other hand, are doing a perfect job of capturing both what you think is interesting along with finding the most interestingly-dressed people of Korea. This is how fashion blogging and photography should be done! Thanks for showing the true style of Korea :) Hope you have an amazing time, and I can't wait to see the rest of your shots!
January 10, 2011 at 3:42 pm
I like the green bandanna around his neck

I like the color combination and textures- even the slightly cheap-ish vest is a nice touch. I especially enjoy the red peeking out of the tweed sleeves.
It looks like there's a huge shift towards retro fashion in Seoul right now. This reminds me of the late 1960's -70's style of students in Korea/Japan – maybe it's because of the new movie, Norwegian wood?
January 10, 2011 at 4:05 pm
all items are random and there's so much color but it is not overwhelming. it's very flattering. Koreans definitely have an innate sense of style..
I'm going to Seoul this summer. Hope I can see many fashionable people there.. :)
What's his name? I think I know him! Any background info on the person? :)
January 10, 2011 at 4:22 pm
The layers with colors is a splendid idea.
January 10, 2011 at 4:35 pm
I love the colors and the texture of the different layers. It's a mix of comfy, business formal, and preppy all together.
I love seeing fashion from other parts of the world. Looking forward to seeing more.

January 10, 2011 at 7:29 pm
Loving the Roy Rogers vintage vibe on the vest. It would never occur to me to layer it with these colors showing underneath. And he's wearing the bandana (?) like an ascot! Combined with his hipster hair stylings, he's taken bits from the American style idiom (the bandana and vest) made them his own in a way that really hangs together. Cool guy.
January 10, 2011 at 7:31 pm
loved that vest over his blazer, really cool!
January 10, 2011 at 7:42 pm
something wrong with the image quality…
This is one inch away from total tacky. It's being on that edge that makes it interesting. Being from Korea, I identify this with old world peasant look when they couldn't afford to buy anything that matched! Korea, you've come a long way. BTW, it has a unique cultural identity that's different from Japan/China. Sorry, got carried away analyzing. It's only fashion, right?
January 10, 2011 at 7:44 pm

January 10, 2011 at 8:42 pm
It is a pleasure to welcome you to Seoul, Scott, the city which has been my home for the past 15 years. The environs of Dosan Park are one of my stomping grounds and it's not surprising you've found a good number of "meotjaengis" (fashion forward folks) mulling about.
The depth and breadth of appreciation for "style" as opposed to "fashion" here is growing at an exciting pace. Having evolved from being generally oblivious to style, Korean guys, many of whom until not long ago felt more comfortable having their mothers and girlfriends buy their clothes, are now fully aware of how to dress well and aren't bashful about spending money to do so.
For those readers who don't know, Korea is fast emerging from the shadows of her larger neighbors – China and Japan – to take the lead in influencing style and culture in Asia. Truly a dynamic place as Scott is finding out during his time here. I truly hope this is not your last time to visit.

Baby, it's cold outside – and when it's this bitter cold, expect the unexpected… with that said, the vest over the blazer is the unexpected twist! :)
I also like the soft lighting in this photo, Sart.

Call me old fashioned but I don't get the layering of long jackets over short jackets. I like the colours underneath the jacket. Not so much the jacket which is in the colours of an old suburban RER in Paris: old brown & old orange!
January 12, 2011 at 7:03 am
Great layers! Very colourful!
January 12, 2011 at 2:35 pm
Thank you so much for going to Seoul. Lived there for a year and I just loved the fashion. I hope you find inspiration there. I know I did. By the way, this guy is amazing. I keep coming back to look at him.
