Again I say this with all the adoration in my heart – Asian men rules with confidence in their sense of style! Love the varied hues of blue in this man's wardrobe composition on a beautiful sunny day!

Ah, the ubiquitous cigarette. SO out of fashion.

I love his bag!! I always try and match like that with a little twist. I figure if I do that then I will always be pulled togeather no mater how crazy my outfit is.
PS I just posted my 100th post :) still so new at this but I have not invited you to check it out. now I have an excuse :)

Those socks seal the deal.
September 16, 2009 at 10:11 am
Perfect on so many levels.
September 16, 2009 at 10:15 am
Love his look. Want that schoolbag!

Doesn't battered old leather just always look cool with virtually any outfit?
A La Mode

Absolutely LOVE this! This outfit is amazing.
September 16, 2009 at 10:27 am
i really like his bag, as well as his striped socks with his shoes!
September 16, 2009 at 10:28 am
another man who looks to the past & finds sartorial perfection.

I love the jacket. In every outfit, there should be colors that absorb light (darker) and at least one element that irradiates it. I dont think there is anything here that brightens up the outfit, I would have chosen a white or very light blue button-down, but that's just me. What are other readers thoughts on very structured briefcases that look very worn, as is the case here? Jorge from WPB

Oi this is perfect and works so well. The socks, the bag and the sunglasses are insanely good.
September 16, 2009 at 11:04 am
I'm inlove with his satchel.
September 16, 2009 at 11:23 am
perfect utilitarian chic.
September 16, 2009 at 11:50 am
Such a great look! This is all about the careful selection of color hues. The yellowish brown bag and shoes are such a beautiful contrast to the almost azure blue jacket. Very sensibly done!

I am not in the habit of plugging a product, but if you love the bag, go to this site: http://store.saddlebackleather.com/?logo
The best leather bags in the world. Hand-crafted, guaranteed for one hundred years. Beautiful

Too dorky and too Mao-ish for my taste. The picture reminds me of Chinese Cultural Revolution. He must be Chairman Mao's great great grandson.

I love the shoes and the bag!
September 16, 2009 at 12:32 pm
I love the sunglasses, wish I could pull them off too!
September 16, 2009 at 12:34 pm
wonderful wistful expression–the outfit's great too

I'm seeing him a lot around east village with his crazy bike. He always looks good and charming.
He is on jakandjil.com with his bike!!
It is good to see outstanding guy like him instead of skinny grungy guy in New york

Is it Hoon? I think it is! He was my student and he's always SO stylish!!!!!
September 16, 2009 at 3:25 pm
the cap and the bag are the best pieces. The rest would be fine if he ewwas a peasant worker.
September 16, 2009 at 4:02 pm
on le dirait tout droit échappé du petit livre rouge…..how funny!
Much much congrats for your book-signing, it looks like it was a very big event!I hope your blog will be the same and suffer no changes (at least bad changes!)

The thing that makes your pictures so different is the very special attention you are able to pay to the light. Great for these fashion shots because we can really see the buttons which pick up the shoes which pick up the tortoise shell glasses which pick up the satchel. Love it.

Chambray jacket… clutch! But free up your hands, and empty your pockets. The fantastic lines of this look are unfortunately being disrupted.
September 16, 2009 at 6:17 pm
the shoes and blues—oh my
September 17, 2009 at 2:36 am
This would be such a great look for school.
September 17, 2009 at 2:51 am
In <3 with the Color Palette ..
September 17, 2009 at 3:13 am
That satchel, and in fact the entire look, are almost from a Tintin book. Which is to say that that this is almost timeless, and give or take a few details you'd be hard pressed to say which decade this man is from.
September 17, 2009 at 9:19 am
Great outfit.Great Shot.
September 17, 2009 at 11:54 am
Nice color palette
September 17, 2009 at 3:23 pm
He can be my boyfriend.
September 19, 2009 at 3:16 am
Awesome! Very very cool!
September 19, 2009 at 2:47 pm
This is Hoon! He is an amazing artist from Korea. I did a residency with him this past summer and adore his creative style. Very excited to see his look captured here!
September 19, 2009 at 7:35 pm
ADORO gli abbinamenti dei jappi.. hanno qualcosa di extra-europeo che solo loro sanno interpretare con gusto
September 20, 2009 at 3:06 pm
He looks like tintin!
September 23, 2009 at 11:31 pm
The whole look seems really French. This could be from the fifties or sixties!

This pic reminded me that I have a lovely, honey coloured Bree satchel that my parents gave me for Christmas in 1989. It's been resurrected for my Fall 2009. Thanks for the reminder!!!

i like the bag, and the socks – rei (firstname.lastname@example.org) :)

That hat is wonderful. I think I have some sort of fetish for newsboy caps.
February 23, 2014 at 2:53 am
love this look. Everything. Its like an old photograph that came alive.

Color coordination is great, but the short sleaves, short waist, short trousers, short lapels and wacky hat make him look like a poor 9 year old made to wear the clothes from when he was 6.
