    this is my favorite of your india pics so far. you could swoop him up, transplant him into nyc, and he wouldn’t miss a beat!

    I love how the shape of the top part of his turban is echoed in the bottle caps of the ads behind him. What a fabulous compostion!

    this is sick dude… I am impressed by your hunting skills.. I have roamed the streets of Delhi for ages, but not seen anything so brilliant… The mixing of patterns…the tone… sweet stuff.. I do wish he had that one bit of colour man… something….

    AWESOME! Traditional + rock and roll has never looked so well pulled together. Love the mix of geometric patterns with the shirt and belt. Great accessories too (the glasses crack me up!). What a natural.

    That’s all I can say about your photos in India!

    I think that your ‘hunt’ in New Delhi has been far more interesting that in any other 1st world capital.

    Now I’m anxiously waiting for more!!

    I like the ice-cream-cookie-soda lorry in the background, its kind of tacky advertising stile, but it makes my eyes happy. Colour, colour, colour!

    I adore this whole look. The rocker and the traditional Indian look is an interesting, albeit amazing, contrast.

    thank you maurice for pointing out the paper clip as tie clip! I used to use 2 paper clips and a rubber band as cufflinks sometimes.. very smart.

    I love the Delhi pics – they reveal a different side than what I’m used to seeing. I love this guy – as an anonymous said – he would fit in NY, so I say he would also fit well on any street in L.A.

    This is a really cool stylish dude! How come people in India are smiling (or, who knows, maybe even laughing out loud) while in NY they mostly look serious (or maybe even gloomy)? Just asking…

    notice the contrast between the background and the subject. the subject himself is dressed head-to-toe in monochrome, but the background is bursting with bold colour. genius!

    I absolutely do not like this look at all. Yuck! The baggy pants make his torso look strangely elongated and his legs look like short stick. Not a good look in any culture.

    lol yeah well guess what? we got swag. hahhaha. jk but all i meant is we do have fashion in India, but more Indian than western. Kurta Pyjama on women can look absolutely any way they want it to. People resonate themselves more often than not, and naturally as peer pressure makes no sense in such a diversely cultural country. Every single thing is not gross or disgusting or rude or ugly or irresponsible. And its hard to get over the surface of India but when you do theres absolutely nothing like it. And do NOT get me started on food….
