Hey Sart, is this all about the specs? Must be. What else is there? Flannel shirt, t-shirt, jeans with racing stripe, and those horrid white shoes I see everyone wearing. I don’t see anything else in this young chap’s dress that would warrant a photo op.
original. i loved the flannel/sports coat confusion. makes it an intersting piece, although in person, i’m sure it’s much more apparently a jacket. the big-sneaks-with-baggy-jeans tend to make anyone seem particualry wee, but he has so much personality that it doesn’t seem to matter for him. a few people have said the kicks are the problem, but i’m curious, what other type of shoe would anyone suggest? i don’t personally love them, but they really seem to parallel the urban/sporty/preppy/funky style he’s established, to a tee. any thoughts?
It’s the whole comp. The diagonals barrel toward you. The street lamp above mimics head shape. The repetition of line and shape. The shoe swoosh is repeated at the waist, the hook of the hand, swooping arm, line at neck and the hook of the glasses at the ear. The little light reflecting in the window and then that bent pole by the leg.
This guy is just classic cool. Everything goes well together the stripe down the jeans connects in with the swoop of the nikes and the stripe on the jeans fit well with the jacket since the thickness is the same on the thick blue stripes
