You know, I generally try to be very open minded and non-judgemental when it comes to personal style. I usually only post positive comments, but come on. This is a pretty silly look. The emperor has weird clothes on guys.
Incredible concept, Knee length quilting? Love the colourway of the entire outfit. Also; I think its quite smart that the knit pattern of the oversize cardigan mates the quilting beneath it (is that a quilted skirt???)
Awesome. For those not so enthusiastic – you have to be happy when someone has clearly put so much thought and consideration into the clothes they have have chosen to wear – even if it’s not to your taste. Celebrate innovation and individuality!
Love this look! So interesting and complex. I look and I want to see more and know more about it. Thanks to those that post the details. Where things come from. Who someone is. It makes the exploration that much more attainable.
I know he worked the colors maroon, blue/black and sage green from head to toe, BUT Sartorialist…Did this man put on that costume, and just wait for you to come by so he could be on your site. Where are the Fashion Police when you need them?
People . . . Please!
I can’t believe the negative comments about this! Great colors and textures used in a very creative way. Of course most of us wouldn’t wear this, but don’t you want to be exposed to different, new ideas? It certainly wouldn’t be a very interesting world if everyone dressed just like us!
I find the shoes to be too clunky for the grace of this look. A suede buck in a navy at least wouldn’t be so jarring. I think a cool boot would also have matched the cool weather look even better. I don’t get the white underneath. It doesn’t fit for me. Maroon, even another plaid, or something in a bright like red would have worked better to me.
This look is incredibly inventive, is it distinctly modern? I argue in the confusion of such a drastic layering. It feels like Engineered Garments meets Mongolia’s Genghis Khan, the quilting of a soldier’s under armor. Pattern, texture, length and tone. I don’t understand how all of those layers garner the next, but I don’t want to know. The ingenuity is fascinating. He appears as a great nomad.
The shearling helmet makes me thing of a 21st century steppe nomad, emerging from his concrete urban yurt. I think he needs some more shearling in there somewhere to balance out the quilting. Shearling trousers perhaps.
And he should carry a recurved bow, to establish his barbarian credentials.
I really love all the future fabrics. this kid is looking forward and that is great, super inspiring to see this on the streets..but (and there is a but).. i think there is definitely a more flattering way to do this.
