They are lovely. I feel grounded just looking at them.
September 17, 2008 at 5:47 pm
The background isn’t like street, but the outfits looks so good :)
September 17, 2008 at 5:49 pm
This picture proves that real style doesn’t have to be on his own, but they look like one person. They just fit with each other like their clothes fits themselves.

The best accessory – an equally, classically dressed companion.
September 17, 2008 at 6:04 pm
I love his sweater and shirt combo with the shortened leg of the pant.
I wish my boyfriend dressed like this!

i still don’t understand the mini-rolled up jeans, but i do understand the shoes.-voyno.
i do agree that this is really cute… but the look is kind of getting overdone everyone is doing it now and there is nothing too special aboutit
September 17, 2008 at 6:20 pm
I am sorry to say, this is very very ‘Plain Jane’ to me. Why are their facial expressions looking so utterly … depressed?
yes, too cute!

I wonder if their personal styles were different before they met?
September 17, 2008 at 7:43 pm
they really compliment each other very well. and i love that you chose a minimalist background to showcase their minimalist style.
September 17, 2008 at 7:58 pm
Lovely pic, lovely couple… I like the color of his shoes very much.
September 17, 2008 at 8:37 pm
Nice shoes, brother. Hmm, I like it.
September 17, 2008 at 8:46 pm
Her shoes are my favorite part of this look. Something old fashion in a look that could have been minimalist.
September 17, 2008 at 8:48 pm
completely in sync. minimal
September 17, 2008 at 9:02 pm
beautiful portrait,besides their own styles,this just look great to me
September 17, 2008 at 9:06 pm
Lovely, elegant, minimal, and they look comfortable too. Beautiful image.

Amazing shot. What in the world was the background- it looks like a studio photo except for the slightly visible texture under their feet.I wonder how you did that? They look great individually and together. I think their personal styles ARE different, but definitely sympatico. Sweet.
September 17, 2008 at 9:30 pm
i don’t understand the background of this photo. they seem to be floating. i’d like to see the street around them. love how their styles complement each other.
September 17, 2008 at 9:34 pm
kawaii. they are fabulous, charming, so classy. who dresses whom? just kidding. they probably were attracted by each other’s dress.
September 17, 2008 at 9:56 pm
Great looking couple wearing quality clothing. They do look happy!
September 17, 2008 at 10:52 pm
I love the bag and rolled up sweater. I would try that look if it weren’t so warm out. I don’t know about the fit of his jeans, though. A bit wide.
And is that background really street?
September 17, 2008 at 11:00 pm
simply beautiful. timely. love her hair. love it all.
September 17, 2008 at 11:18 pm
ugh i love this. so simple.
September 17, 2008 at 11:46 pm
Anyone know who makes his shoes and bag? They’re fantastic.
September 17, 2008 at 11:52 pm
how is that on the street.. cute though.
THE DAY AFTER YOU DIE
September 17, 2008 at 11:53 pm
His shoes are cool…. i wish the trogan sandal shoe thing was over..its kinda tired with the exception of the punk spike ones i saw somewhere the other day.
(they look like they would be nice neighbors)
September 18, 2008 at 12:55 am
the bag doesn’t look like it would be hard to find, but any leads? share.
September 18, 2008 at 12:57 am
Simple. Very nice!
September 18, 2008 at 1:14 am
Such a humbling photo. Simply fashionable.
September 18, 2008 at 1:27 am
Awwww…they are cute.
It looks like a studio picture.
September 18, 2008 at 1:37 am
Two Fake. On the street? You must mean in the studio. Perhaps some of the other street photography could be staged as well? I find this shot very bothersome, it takes away from admiration I had for your on the spot abilities as a photographer and fashion journalist. How do we know a whole team of people didn’t dress these people up? I cant appreciate the idea as much if I think it’s all made up. sorry.
September 18, 2008 at 2:17 am
Diggin’ him more than her but I’m not sure why.
September 18, 2008 at 2:35 am
haha, its the man who’s carrying the big bag…nice gender bender photo.i really like the thin turn-up..almost not there..but adds to the look.
September 18, 2008 at 2:41 am
basic without looking armish…there is nothing superfluous about these two. they kind of transcend fashion. my favourite outfits in a while.
September 18, 2008 at 2:48 am
They are both so beautiful! This picture is all about balance. They’re perfectly balanced in all the surface ways.
September 18, 2008 at 3:41 am
I like her shoes. They make such a nice couple…. aaaahhh. So beautifully dressed and so well matched like a pair of shoes. Or a matching shoes and handbag set.
September 18, 2008 at 3:44 am
Cute together and separately. I like how she’s toned down the ethereal dress with cute dark flats and chic cropped hair, and his shoes and sweater are gorgeous.
September 18, 2008 at 3:52 am
She is adorable!! One of the most inspiring pictures I have seen in a while.. 5″ heels are fine.. but its becoming the norm, this looks fresh.
September 18, 2008 at 3:59 am
they are really cute.And the lady has beautiful legs.
It is really like a studio-photo.It would be interesting to find them in 20 years again :-)
September 18, 2008 at 4:02 am
Three cheers! Break out the ’64 mod style book! Throw in a tote and hey presto, you’ve got a great look.
(PS. Mr S. why haven’t you been in London? Paul on Floral St could be someone interesting to have a conversation with; your styles are well suited)
September 18, 2008 at 4:42 am
they look absolutely fabulous.
September 18, 2008 at 5:03 am
The background looks like studio..but they definately look great… love his bag!
September 18, 2008 at 5:19 am
por fin me animo a dejar un comentario. este blog supone para mi una fuente de inspiracion diaria y ayuda a que mis mañanas sean menos grises. gracias
sorry about my english
September 18, 2008 at 6:04 am
I really love their look. Does anyone recognize the tote?
September 18, 2008 at 6:34 am
September 18, 2008 at 6:35 am
This photo reminds me of a contemporary spin of the painting ¨American Gothic,¨ by Grant Wood. They each have similar dispositions and blank expressions.
September 18, 2008 at 6:41 am
The guy is just such a perfect match. I love how the inside of his jeans works with the sweater. Shows great creativity!!Overall I am quite sick and tired of jeans as so many people overuse them. But here they are worn in such a perfect way!
September 18, 2008 at 7:15 am
Wonderful! Her shoes are toooo cute:)Ivy
September 18, 2008 at 7:38 am
boring. It’s not even in da streets Sat. Wazzup?
I <3 The Apocalypse
September 18, 2008 at 7:44 am
I adore nice people and love love love a nice t-strap flat.
September 18, 2008 at 7:57 am
If thats “on the street” then NY has disappeared into a vast white black hole!!!

Love her outfit, which is basically two classic items put together. He uses classic/basics as well. Not sure whether I liked the mini-roll up legs. In combination with the sweater below the waist, they make his legs look even shorter. My legs are on the short side too, that’s how I know! Great pair- was this photo taken on the street? Jorge from W Palm Beach
THIS is on the street?
September 18, 2008 at 8:28 am
To pull off this look, a girl’s gotta have nice legs. She’s got great ones. I am green with envy. I like what the guy’s wearing too…very cool couple/siblings(?).
September 18, 2008 at 8:29 am
They go together like peas and carrots.
September 18, 2008 at 9:27 am
like a set of salt & pepper shakers! i love them…
September 18, 2008 at 10:03 am
lovely. easy cool.
September 18, 2008 at 10:32 am
My boyfriend dresses just like this, because he’s French. Its funny how you notice it in the U.S., but in Europe shirt and sweater and jeans and nice shoes is a basic uniform…
Her outfit I love, however, and they do have a great synergy.
September 18, 2008 at 10:51 am
I worked with this guy. He always had great style, and no wonder-he is a kick-ass graphic designer and the nicest and funniest guy!
September 18, 2008 at 10:56 am
Absolutely to die for! I love her shoes, his cuffed pants, her dress, his hat, I just love it all!
Does anyone know what you would call that style of shoe? I wore them as a child, and I know they aren’t mary janes….is it just a t-strap?
September 18, 2008 at 11:03 am
On what magical street is this?Love her T-Strap shoes.
September 18, 2008 at 11:56 am
I LOVE THIS!!! They look amazing and make me smile!!
September 18, 2008 at 11:58 am
love the tote… does anyone know where to find it?
September 18, 2008 at 12:04 pm
Who makes her dress? Could this be inside a tent at Fashion Week? That seems more likely than “on the street” though it is a semi-public place and could be considered philosophically to be “the street”. They are certainly not hired models, so I suppose it is “on the street” in terms of street vs. couture.
September 18, 2008 at 12:36 pm
HELP! His shoes are awesome, anyone know where they came from?
September 18, 2008 at 12:37 pm
WHERE did he get those awesome shoes????
September 18, 2008 at 1:19 pm
great couple! please – does anyone know who makes that tote?
September 18, 2008 at 1:33 pm
Hi Scott – I just wanted to mention that now that this shot has found it’s way over to your site from style.com it is the young lady’s second appearance on your site. The first:
September 18, 2008 at 2:38 pm
I like his shoes and that he’s showing his socks. And she’s absolutely lovely. Great couple.
September 18, 2008 at 3:35 pm
So fantastic. Completely practical yet beautiful. So nice to see a change from ladies in high-maintenance hair/bags/shoes. They both look terrific.
September 18, 2008 at 5:30 pm
anyone have the 411 on his shoes?
September 18, 2008 at 5:41 pm
nice look dennis! -old friend from anomaly!
September 18, 2008 at 7:59 pm
Nicholas…please as Dennis where he got his shoes and pass it along.
September 19, 2008 at 11:50 am
i really like his bag anyone know where he might have gotten it or a similar one
September 19, 2008 at 1:56 pm
I’ll trade you info on the bag for info on his shoes…
September 19, 2008 at 8:28 pm
this is honestly so lovely
September 20, 2008 at 11:10 am
Her dress is from Philip Lim’s “Green Collection”And she looks amazing in it!
September 21, 2008 at 12:05 am
not to plug my favourite hand-made bag brand, but you can find similar big leather bags on http://www.nivaldodelima.com. i have nivaldo’s kenya bag and it’s such a classic accessory.
her shoes are an absolute staple. where can i find a pair like that? i’ll fly out of my little island/country just to get them.
September 22, 2008 at 3:57 am
this was shot at a fashion show that was in a photographers studio
i shot this just the same way i shoot everything else I just happened to be smart enough to use the background i was given in this situation
to see other shots from this show check out Men.Style.com
September 22, 2008 at 4:18 pm
Dennis (or friend of Dennis) where did you get your shoes?
September 24, 2008 at 1:22 pm
anybody know where we could get her shoes?
September 24, 2008 at 3:37 pm
Anyone know where the tote is from?
September 24, 2008 at 5:21 pm
and his shoes????
October 6, 2008 at 5:29 pm
theyre sooooo cute!!!!!
October 6, 2008 at 10:01 pm
Simply gorgeous. The two complement each other (people and outfits.)
December 4, 2009 at 7:56 am
Nice to see non-white people who aren't 6 ft tall on here. I finally feel kinda represented.
May 23, 2012 at 9:07 pm
Hey, awe-inspiring perfect !
November 5, 2013 at 9:30 pm
At this moment I am going away to do my breakfast, once having my breakfast coming over again to read more news.
November 24, 2013 at 4:46 pm
Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to mention that
I’ve really loved surfing around your weblog posts.
In any case I’ll be subscribing on your feed and I am hoping
you write once more very soon!
March 29, 2014 at 3:26 pm
OK..that literally looks perfect. Timeless style does exist.
October 14, 2016 at 11:33 pm
Excellent piece, i did read it two times so sorry for that,
i have passed it on to my friends, so with a bit of luck they’ll get pleasure from
it as well.
