    I'm starting to see that these portraits of someone in a strong stance with the highrises to either side of them is becoming a signature of yours!

    He looks supreme– all about the individual and his confident style. He truly stands out amongst all the others around him in black. Beautiful.

    The white pants create a great contrast to the browns and blacks of the other people in the shot. The orange/red cardigan against the blue collar with the neutral brown in between is great. Not to mention the classic leather gloves that, even though a bit much, compliment the shoes immensely. Bravo!

    Great look. The large cardigan is a good alternative to a jacket. The cardigan will work even better with a v-neck sweater over a collared shirt and tie.

    The stance is a major clue to his gender. Compare it the caved-ankle or pigeon toed stance of Alesssandra a few days ago, who belied her (fabulous!)androgynous look with her i'm-just-a-helpless-girl stance.

    Absolutely right, Joe. It's what makes the comments section of this blog such a bore. I made a perfectly acceptable point about this being a case of trickle up fashion by writing that what I see here today I saw the kids in my neighborhood wearing yesterday, but it apparently did not make the grade. Not quite positive enough, I imagine.

    I almost bought a double breasted cardigan this past week…now I regret not getting it. It was even heathered in a similar way, though I preferred the color; it was a very pretty sage green.
    I also think its completely unfair that men can look as chic as women in clothes which are infitinetly less uncomfortable (i.e skin tight and sky high. One could argue that a girl looks just as nice in denim and flat shoes, but I think we all know in our heart of hearts that women are most stylish in stilettos and dresses. I'm just bitter.
