Thank you for featuring Asians in your photos. As a Filipino living in the West Coast, I never think of us as sartorial. Even when we follow fashion, I see us as conformists. But you’re definitely changing my perception. Salamat.
I live close to Barcelona in Spain, and I’m noticing like a trend here that goes to the Japanese and manga style in the teenager people…love Japan and it’s style, but this picture it’s sounds me mucho more to an European style than a Japanese…but, the style of the picture it has charisma and strongness , so i really like it, good!
I think it’s great that The Sartorialist features people of Asian descent as well but I disagree with the comment that we are, in any way, conformist. People conform in America in general, look at how AMERICANS dress, I don’t think it’s fair to label it an “Asian” trait. Furthermore this site is about good fashion so who cares if you’re white black or chartreuse, if you’ve got great style it should be about the clothes!
Jacket is butter. Great look, I think it’s a cross between Tokyo chic, Mad Max, with a little latter day James Dean sort of swagger. I likes. Simply because something is monochromatic doesn’t reduce the style quotient one bit. He’s also rockin’ a little Stray Cat-ish type of flava. The more I check it, the more I dig!!
Hi Sartorialist, YOU are amazing! I am from the Philippines and i just discovered your site. Love, love, love your job! I wish i lived in NY. Do you have a collection that features necklaces? I’d really love to see! Great Job!
I wish there was a (cheapish!) girl version of that jacket…one that covered the butt, stood out from the crowd, and didn’t make me feel like the michelin man…The jacket is killer. Leave the all black alone. He’s too tough to begrudge him the look; all black was made for a harder edge! Its only the boring “all black is chic” people that ruin the look.
