    awesome but there’s some strangeness about this guy proportions.

    Great jackets! I think the fact that they’re both very fitted is what makes this look modern, not Fonzie.

    lets just talk about him – this just proves that even when you make sartorial errors [the proportions are a tad odd, yes] that all is saved completely when you are cute looking!

    i love these two pics….they would have looked cool side-by-side, as if they were looking at each other and thinking: damn, that’s a nice jacket…. :)

    and i like how the guy’s jacket fits really snug…

    it’s so hard to find jackets with length that’s right at the waist like this. you’d have to be at least 6feet tall to have a jacket fit this well or you can shop at the kids section.

    this fits great on both of them. :D

    I think what makes the guy look weird is the not long enough “cavalo”… the crutch area. how do you call that in english? (sartorialy speaking of course)
    Who’s Fonzie anyway?? so many jokes in american sitcoms with Fonzie, now i see Fonzie mentioned here so I want to know!

    He looks nice, but for me his trousers are too baggy.

    Black, white, and gray… You may call it uninspiring, unadventurous, but somehow it’s always the most elegant look in the room.

    You see this jacket`s all over northern europe in black or brown. Unisex.. but not to exciting.

    he still looks a little fonzie…

    I love his hair, I think his pants are really awkward and the bulging of the jacket is unflattering. The girls head scarf thing just swallows her whole and does nothing for me.

    I think all people should own a cropped leather jacket… in either black or brown. It is the perfect addition to a spring or fall wardrobe when a lighter jacket is needed. I’m in love with the luscious leather hoodies from Mike & Chris- they are amazing.

    I dunno, I do see a little bit of the fonze in him.
    The girl however, looks amazing. Really nice color, porportion, and vibe.

    Meow, meow! Both of them are hot… that is the idea when wearing a leader jacket, no?

    I love the black jacket. Is brown suede impossible without irony?

    Who was Fonzie? Sacrilige! LOL

    He was a character on a tv show called “Happy Days” that ran back in the 1970s by director Henry Winkler (director Ron Howard was on it too).

    The show took place in the 1950s suburbia and Fonzie was the Marlon Brando/James Dean type kid who wear a bicker jacket, had a ducks ass hair do, got all the chicks, and rode a motorcycle. IOW Authur Fonzelli was Milwalkees local bad ass.

    If you’re familiar w/ James Dean in “Rebel Without A Cause” and most especially Marlon Brando’s “The Wild One”, that’s the look and ‘tude involved. Brando’s famous line from the film came after he was asked “what are you rebelling against?”….Brando says “whaddaya got?”.

    “Happy Days” and Fonzie are also the origins of the phrase “jumped the shark”. The character actually jumped a shark after which pint the show started going downhill. So when you see someone saying X show “jumped the shark” it means that after a certain definable point, the show started to stink.

    Ashley Olsen has been wearing that exact jacket (the bottom one) for like, three years. This is hardly refreshing.

    Can anyone tell me who makes that specific jacket? I see similar ones everywhere in France but this is a little nicer than most.

    For Jerry

    when I am in Europe I’m working so fast I don’t really have time to digest what I am seeing.

    Right now I have a little more time to write about the ideas and themes I have been seeing the last few months which I think strengths the conversation of this blog.

    I also want to make sure that the images I take for have a home on my blog because they often are hard to find on once the shows are over.

    He looks dandy, while also looking almost exactly like The Fonz.

    There’s no getting around it.

    I agree with the above anon comment. He looks really alluring but he also looks a lot like the Fonz.

    I’m really inspired by the cut of the girl’s jacket and her layering shades of gray. LOVE IT!

    1) love it, but he does look like the fonz.

    2) this look is nothing new, true.

    3) i have been searching for a jacket like this but with smaller pockets not in leather (too expensive; no pleather for me please), for the past two years here in the US, and i just FINALLY found one that i like. after seeing tons of cute ones for sale on foreign websites. shopping in the states is SO frustrating sometimes….!!!

    What a thoroughly gorgeous looking man! His look reminds me of the French actor Romain Duris – the most handsome and stylish man in cinema – in ‘The Beat That My Heart Skipped’ xxx

    How and where and can you get a jacket like that without spending $700+ on a Mike and Chris jacket? Sigh.

    Definitely shorten pants, with no stacking at all, and I think that would finish the entire look.
