    Hugh Heffner, eat your heart out. This is the perfect way to rock lounge wear in the street and still look the epitome of style – love it!

    Where is this man going in his pyjamas and his green apple granny bag? Very interesting indeed.

    Wonderful mixes here – traditional and current, mis-matched prints. Nicely done!

    To understand this style, you need to read Banana Yoshimoto’s “Moonlight Shadow”–which started the craze.

    totally stylish !



    August 30, 2011 at 10:25 am

    This just cracks me up!!! and makes me miss Japan a lot. :)

    Authentic style – and only in Japan. I absolutely adore this shot.

    wow, wow! how cool is this outfit.
    i’d love to be daring enough to dress like this!

    Traditional without being costume-y. Very cool.

    Wow…..utterly, totally cool……renewing and modernizing the ancient Japanese tradition of sensitivity to the subtle colors and textures of fabrics. No one has ever done fabric better in the history of the planet. I’ve taken to googling Japanese links for fabrics and style inspiration lately. This guy is an example of why. A billion times more aesthetically interesting than cookie-cutter corporate fashion plates. Soul and spirit. Love the frayed wrist cuff especially……altogether wonderful…………

    I love the mix of proportions in this look; how the jacket is so long, but the pants are short and his hair looks so minimalistic against all those gorgeous patterns..

    all of these different elements just add up to perfection!

    Wow, I love this outfit. I wonder if it is his I’m-off-to-the-bathhouse-but-still-want-to-look-cool outfit? Either way, dig it!

    I’m really enjoying these shots, but why is the city being repeatedly misspelled without explanation? “Tokio” is not somehow more accurate phonetically. It is less accurate. The “kyo” sound is very important.

    Please stop spelling Tokyo incorrectly. People already think people in fashion are ditzy!

    I once wore pyjamas in the park when I was young, it is so freeing to break the rules and get away with it. He’s doing that here, plus putting together a look that is well, wonderful.

    Great modern and personal interpretation of the traditional Japanese look, very inspiring, makes me want to buy a vintage kimono and transform it my way.

    This photo provides evidence that fashion is relative–relative to our own idea

    That is so hyper-ridiculous that I love it.

    Nice mix… I LOVE the photo!

    The style in Tokio seems so androgynous! I love that he is wearing THAT out of the house. Can I wear a cool bathrobe too!?

    August 30, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    Why Tokio? I thought this spelling was obsolete. Just wondering

    Well, maybe Tokio is too much extravagant for me. :/
    Looking forward to photos from Europe! ;)

    The lines and proportions of his outfit make him look absolutely regal. Lovely!

    Minus the woman’s handbag, this is perfection. I hate the homogenization of fashion due to air travel, internet, global retailing, so I applaud anyone who attempts a modern take on traditional regional clothing. This is BEYOND fashion, into the realm of pure style and culture.

    Love the shoes!

    Amazing! Even though it is traditional it looks contemporary – and what I love best – a little gender bending!

    so original – oh how i miss japan… great photo.

    I love the look! Mixing different styles can sometimes be difficult to pull off unless you execute it exactly right… and this is a great example of that!

    I love Japan and everything about their fashion because it mixes and matches tradition with modernity so, a the same time, it perfectly matches the country itself. I have to add that asian people are naturally elegant and beautiful which makes the clothes they wear even more stunning.
    This boy in this picture is handsome and delicate, effortlessly cool and modern.

    Ridiculous but looks super comfy!

    If this doesn’t epitomize Tokyo them I don’t know what does, even the streetscape. I think this is your best capture ever. Nice! And thanks.

    Ridiculous combination. Even though it looks like he wears pajama, his style is modern and freash )))

    Everyone keeps repeating how this mixes modern and traditional…ok…I am totally missing it. It sort of looks like something that a Japanese guy would wear. But I see nothing modern. Its just very comfortable loose clothing in a sort of typical Japanese textile. But this looks a lot better then the rest of the Japanese series. He looks elegant, and natural. Not like he is trying to be a character out of some badly written fiction.

    i’d rather see this coat over denim pants or even khaki pants with a white shirt, because, to me, his look is very ‘pajamas in public’. for me, it is too relaxed to wear anywhere. i do like the coat.

    His dress may be individual, thought provoking, and attention seeking, but it has no style. It may give him 5 minutes of fame but a lifetime of oblivion.

    Awesome capture, perfect image of the how Tokyo looks like ….younger generations that do dress traditional, but then in their own way.
