    Arghhh… What is with the scarves? In the winter, of course. In the late fall and early spring, occasionally. But the sportsjacket or faded jean jacket (for men) or cropped jacket over oversized chunky sweater (for women) paired with a scarf seems to be a New York uniform. Don’t get me wrong. I love scarves. It is a great way, especially for guys, to get some color into their wardrobes, but enough is enough. It’s becoming the Ugg boots of the fashionista and hipster crowds.

    Otherwise, I like the look, although the glasses are a little costumey (I really like glasses, but the super thick black frames with cropped hair seem a bit much.)

      “What is with the scarves?” I imagine he’s just trying to keep warm, is WHAT. End of March in NY can still be quite cold. And, so what if it is a “New York uniform”? People often dress similarly in a given geographic area. Again, it’s cold there – what would you have him wear? As for his “costumey” glasses – Tho I find them too big for his face, they, nonetheless, are probably just his glasses – sheesh! Anyway, thanks.

    “Becoming the Ugg boots”? Yikes. Choose a different, more timely comparison. Like skinny jeans tucked into boots.

    The pieces themselves are great, but the whole thing looks a little forced and uptight.

    I like it. Although he reminds me of a living, breathing, TinTin. The different flavors and textures of a particular color, then suddenly, ::bam:: that blue spritely thing on the neck.

    I just love this look. Wouldn’t look good on me, but I think it’s perfect without being studied at all.
