    This is a great photograph. Takes me back to the Punk years. Have they ever really stopped? Answer?, no. At the age of 52 I am still drawn to the military boot and one of the days will buy myself a pair. Why not I say.

    The jacket is potentially interesting but rather difficult to see, sadly.
    I like the contrast with the skin on his legs, too.

    What we don't see here (a face) adds so much interest. Maybe it's a boy, maybe not… (those furry legs are kind of a giveaway though).

    i appreciate all styles… preppy, punk, grunge, high-end socialite, etc etc… but all of these styles can be done well and done poorly.

    this guy does his style well, however, i'd lose the socks.

    Teddy Boys, Mods, Punks, Waivers, Iggy, Patty Smith, Buzzcocks, The Dolls, McClaren – The music, art, fashion attitude, counterculture and then the wave of influences. Good to see at least the dynamic and brilliant visual audacity of it all is still alive and well!

    real street style again! love the layers and the cut of the jacket and the haircut makes me want to see him from the front. so much better than photos of emaciated hangers and "fashion mag" editors.


    March 19, 2011 at 6:49 am

    I wonder if the jacket isn't Alberto Aspesi?

    The thing that stands out on this photo is the paleness of the lad's legs. I, too, am pale and face the dilemma of whether to wear shorts during the summer. Fair play to his confidence.

    I'm not getting punk from this look though. I remember tartan being the punk look-du-jour in the 70s, not black. Oh well, roll on the warmer weather.

    I love the style and how much inspiration is in a simple black outfit. But the bare legs..not so much :)

    Definitely not punk. Industrial Gothic perhaps if I was to label it. All of us kids who wore all black, doc boots, and listened to NIN in the 90's are now around 30 and designing clothes. He looks like my best friend in high school in 1995, yet completely current. Its the direct line from Helmut's biker pants to modern day Rick Owens. Goth glam has returned.
