Plaid hello!! I love people that are not afraid to take risks.. It works for him…
wow, pulls off the plaid on plaid well.

Oh dear, isn't there a law against that much matching plaid on one person?

A very restrained Mr Elton John?

Seeing it from the rear makes me wonder what this outfit looks like from the front. :)
April 2, 2010 at 1:44 pm
pyjamas?the wall color is the same that the crosses into the squares… funny!
April 2, 2010 at 1:56 pm
A little too much, my eyes think.
Turn around, dude! Teasing us is not fair! Tell me you have a front view, Sart! This is merciless!!

oh my god. PJs…and ones, in addition, in which you don't want to be caught dead in.
I'd say plaid like that only works if you're as thin a David Bowie. Or, did you just catch someone grabbing the morning paper in their pajamas & robe?
April 2, 2010 at 2:10 pm
Oh damn! What an outfit! Too bad its just from the back…
April 2, 2010 at 2:19 pm
What a lucky shot with the red brick wall echoing the geometry and red in the plaid.
April 2, 2010 at 2:32 pm
Looks like Thom Browne's work…Nicely done!!

Immediately I want to meet him, you gotta luv the spirit!

Reminds me of the joke: "Know why it is that bagpipers always march while they play? They're trying to get away from the noise."
Still, kudos to this man for reminding us all to dare to take a fashion risk, to make a "statement" that others will deem better left unsaid. I care less about "liking" clothes/looks than I do about having my eyes opened and, then, having to think about what I like or don't like, and why. Provocative always trumps safe, perhaps….

Wow, knocked my socks off! Looks like it had the same effect on him. A truly NYC outfit, brave and stylish, original and daring. I also like the way the surrounding walls echo the plaid.

What am I seeing? Is it pajama fabric? Wool? Is it tailored, pressed? Bare ankles coming out of shoes not slippers. Where is he going? Where has he been? My mind can't make sense of what my eyes are seeing. That's a good thing.
April 2, 2010 at 6:12 pm
Is that Glen Obrien?
April 2, 2010 at 6:36 pm
The picture is very strong, the style much less so… Thanks for sharing!
April 2, 2010 at 8:48 pm
I'm in NYC today, straining my neck to find you!
April 2, 2010 at 8:53 pm
I believe this man is Eduard from Brooks Brother's Black Fleece shop on Bleecker Street in NYC.
April 2, 2010 at 9:35 pm
this is like the fancy version of chinese people cruising around town in their head-to-toe matching flannel pajamas, usually printed with some ridiculous cartoon character or big, silly swirls. if this guy was in shanghai, he'd get ticketed–the gov't is attempting to ban folks wearing their pjs outside for the upcoming expo. even sillier! it's such a part of the culture here, and this guy would totally fit in. but maybe on the hip side of town.
April 2, 2010 at 9:43 pm
I immediately thought of Elton John…I really love this picture.
April 3, 2010 at 1:14 am
man–that is SO cool–that he wears it and you actually caught it. so elton but makes me SMILE!!

April 3, 2010 at 5:13 pm
don't love it…and the hem? A little played out for my tastes. But thats just my opinion, so to each their own.
April 4, 2010 at 10:31 am
Looks like he's wearing his PJ's…
April 4, 2010 at 11:28 am
I see Sir Elton was visiting NYC again.
April 4, 2010 at 1:29 pm
a lovely outfit!
April 4, 2010 at 5:17 pm
April 5, 2010 at 6:35 am
Great spot. Definitely Sir Elton John. Did you ask for his autograph? lol
April 5, 2010 at 9:34 am
He is wearing some gear from the Brooks Brothers spring line. I found it on their website. Eyepopping…
April 5, 2010 at 10:31 am
Not my normal lenghty spiel (and YES! that is the actual spelling of the word – NOT 'schpiel' which is how its pronounced), but you get the point. LOL
April 5, 2010 at 9:15 pm
He is in his pajamas and dressing gown and has just left his kitchen because he ran out of milk. He is running to the corner deli. No way is this street wear.
April 6, 2010 at 2:10 pm
At first I thought that this was just a really well made bathrobe but then I saw the pants. I think that the secret to this is the tailoring. The refinement that keeps this several degrees from "pimp suit" garishness while still being refreshing.
I want to see it from the front!!
April 6, 2010 at 4:49 pm
Absolutely love this
April 8, 2010 at 8:10 am
This is Edward from BB Black Fleece and he always looks amazing – great shot!
April 8, 2010 at 5:00 pm
he looks like he just came out of an hospital and didn't have street clothes, so he decided to walk in PJs…not stylish at all
April 10, 2010 at 10:23 pm
not only does the large plaid print make him look wider, the short hem of the pants make him look short. its as if he's a walking cube.
