This shot is really all about the mash-up of scale and pattern.


His head-wrap, the shirt, the jacket and the crates behind all add a dimension of scale to the patterns in the image.


This type of mix seems so natural and expressive (like a personal language) to Moroccans.

    In Ukraine this fashion is not popular. We try to keep the face and head uncovered.

      Even if it gets cold out? Or doesn’t it get cold enough for a hat/scarf?

    I especially like the way the head scarf is wrapped. It seems to be done with such easiness but when I try it, the result is far from being “natural.”
    (These beautiful shots from Morocco remind me so much of my childhood in North Africa.)

    Yes as you say the mix of pattern between the jacket and scarf makes this such an interesting shot.

    Great! Scale and pattern, love it when you have the opportunity to take it out of direct sartorial reference; so interesting :)

    I always love to see people in places where people don’t wear jeans to do work that could get messy. It feels to me like in America we are brainwashed to need jeans when working in a garden, or lifting boxes or what have you. But really you can do it in a suit coat just as well, like this gentleman is doing.

    As always you have captured the essence of personal style – not forced but natural and seemingly achieved with very little effort.

    It is very similar to Egypt as well specifically Cairo… You should visit Egypt – cairo is a must but also Aswan is beautiful and very different …

    If you have the time… siwa oasis and deserts and Alexandria would be great ;)

    Amazing how this gentleman’s sense of style is so effortless. I wonder how many other patterns he entertained before settling for this amazing combination. Amazing stylistic choices by this man.

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
