    looks very well put together. love the blast of sheer neutral at the bottom. looks more like an ad then streetwear though. trying a little too hard? hmm…depends on where he's going, i guess. just a feeling…kudos to him.

    My guess: he's a ballet dancer.

    The silky nylons around his ankles are a bit of a surprise. His hair – may I say so – is in his eyes! But he does look beautiful. I love the East-meets-West vibe, neutralized by the black. Cool.

    So Ann D., so Julius, so Damir Doma, so Rick Owens, so… It's not particularly an original style, but he's very handsome with the perfect proportions to wear the look-of-the-moment extremely well– just wish he had slicked his hair back and didn't wear those awful socks/leggings that makes it look like he has saggy skin on his legs.

    I think this is a cool look but what are those leg things? I kind of like them, except they draw attention to the shoes, and I don't know if it's a trick of the light or what but his left shoe looks like it's a right foot shoe.

    Its definitely incredibly layered! It has a certain kind of dark charm to it, but I can imagine that its not exactly everyone's cup of tea.
    But I do think that it works well here, especially when you're viewing this as a portrait as well as a style ensemble.
    I really like his structured jacket- especially the small things such as the button detail.
    A very interesting postin my opinion.

    As usual, it's fit and proportion for me. However, it could be that I just can't really see the individual pieces. Is the jacket too big, with sleeves too long, or is that some sort of wrist warmer? Is he wearing a dress/skirt, or is that drop-crotch pants?

    I think I like the jacket. But I'm not convinced it's the right size as the proportions look off to me.

  60. Libby K

    December 1, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    I am surprised how much I like this. It's like a past century, maybe the 18th, and the future together. How does he even get his socks to do that? And what is the layer under the jacket? So many interesting choices, all in what looks in the picture like an indigo palette. The color contrast is what makes the socks stand out.

    While there is a certain level of androgyny at work here, there is also a more overriding historicity to be located in the coat, hose (sadly saggy), and footwear. What I find most interesting, is the manner in which he manages to combine both concepts in a way that seems somewhat familiar, but -at the same time-threatening to those who are more firmly rooted in the gender assigned roles we all normally inhabit in our clothing (not being in my 20s for quite some time now, androgyny will not work as a fashion statement for me personally, though much kudos to those who can still pull it off).
    Living in uncertain times as we are, the natural temptation for many is to knuckle under and conform in the apparel they select. However, let us now praise the rebels for the courage and the daring to be different when it is the least likely thing most people would opt for.

    With that jacket (amazing), that layering, the short "trousers" and the skin-coloured socks, he looks like some 18th century cast-off. That said, it is a great ensemble that, while odd, demonstrates wonderful use of layering and texture.

    And as was the case of the lady with the leather vest teamed with tri-colored boots and a striped dress, I cannot help but wonder what the result is once the guy is in motion: all loose ends (hair, tunic, harem pants, socks) flapping combined with balancing bag….

    The guy is obviously really handsome, he has a gorgeous face but i'm not so sure about the over-all look.It's definetely on the wave, with the metrosexual meets gay something like that, with the man-bag and all, but it doesn't really work for me…masculine and simple do wonders.He has a look that reaches a point of high subjectivity, either you like it or you don't. I adore the jacket and the shoes, but…it saddens me to see such a nice guy looking like that. It just isn't appealing.

    I've finally come to the realization that parachute/harem pants are an item of clothing I will never appreciate. While this young man obviously has his own unique style – and I commend him for that- those pants are just too much. They make him (any anyone else who wears them) look like they are wearing a droopy diaper. I just can't get over how much I dislike the pants. The rest is fabulous, though.

    It looks like the outfit of a fairy tale knight who was suddenly thrust onto the streets of Paris. Like he is trying to put an elegant, noble spin on the clothes he finds in thrift stores. This is an outfit that speaks of power and beauty and individualism, fashion traits that can usually only be found in fairy tales.

    John M. Doyle nailed it! The silhouette here just works, down to the hosiery, to be honest. It takes talent, yes talent, to be able to pull something like this together and he has it in spades – much appreciated.

    I love Rick and Julius, (and Ann has been doing this forever since CCP and Geoffrey B. Small started doing it again)but designers only churn out this much black and white when it's the end of an era–basically someone like Wang is probably at a loss to innovate right now. Check it throughout history–Tudoresque, Spanish, English narrative, Victorian Era, Reformation and the goth-ninja jump-off. There's going to be something much bigger on the horizon soon. However, this is a sensationally classic look and I'm actually digging the hose.

    It looks like the outfit of a fairy tale prince who was suddenly thrust onto the streets of modern Paris. Like he is trying to put an elegant, noble spin on clothes he finds in shops around the city. I love that this look was worn out on the streets and not just stuck on some runway. Magnificent!

    Love it when I see a guy pulling off the harem pants! My straight friend just got a pair and surprisingly/luckily he wears them well!

    This is what a young David Bowie would wear if he were just beginning his career today. It's beautifully strange.

    best bag Dior ever made for men. It's so roomy and useful around town. putting the fringe thing on the main zipper (you cant see the fringe thing here) makes it so much easier to use. great outfit, especially the drop-crotch pants.
