Those boots and jacket require a more relaxed-fit jean. They look like 501's after their initial wash. He resembles Neal Cassidy, which gives the picture ( at least for me) a beatnik aura. The graffiti and Mud Truck coffee underscores the picture's bohemian sensibility. Nice "downtown" shot.
I love your blog so much! please come to Columbia sometime! final exams are over after the 12th and we will be graduating, celebrating, and making up for the fact that we've been in the library wearing sweatshirts for the past two weeks
I agree with Monsieur Da Chump–a somewhat more loose-legged jean (I'm thinking a classic worker-jean cut) would make this jacket-cuff-boot combo even better. Or, conversely, he could keep the jeans but go with a narrower cuff.
I think they are Samurai jeans (love em). I don't really dig the boots & high cuff. I think a slimmer boot and lower cuff would be a better look for him. Everything else is perfect. I love this kind of casual minimalist look.
You have shot him before and its one of my all time favorites with the shaved head outside of la Perla. However, I think this time he missed the mark with the cuff on the jeans. He is so handsome though. Knew him in college and he keeps getting better looking every time I see him on here.
But, really, when is NYC going to clean all that crap graffiti up. Its not bohemian, urban, or anything else except for crappy paint/marker everywhere. I do appreciate some tagging that actually reflects artistic talent, that just looks like a bunch of 4 year olds went wild with markers, stickers, and gum. Rubbish and classless.
I have a friend who rolls his jeans up like this guy and I never liked it, but this guy proved me wrong! Now if you would excuse me I need to go and tell my friend to get a pair of jeans with better fit(I think I know why it didn't work for my friend: if you roll up a pair of straight jeans that are 2 sizes larger, you look more like a clown. Not to mention gaining 10 pounds more and looking few inches shorter)
