    Nice look. I have only two quibbles:

    1. The branded shoes detract.

    2. What's with the seemingly assymetrical hem on the "sweater"? Makes it look a bit sloppy.

    Reminds me of Blondie from the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Nice look.

    I love him. His hat is outstanding! The black and white, my favorite pairing of non-colors, is extremely flattering on him. I disagree with another reader who deems him a child in his apparel choice. Once again, this is an Asian thing and I love it. They are all about personal freedom and highly artistic self expression when choosing their look. Good choice, even when its over the top, is very cool when done well. He knows how to do it. We have to always be thinking outside the box or we shut ourselves out to new ideas and self expansion.

    The drop crotch pants look like they are from BLACK Comme des Garcons.

    I like the idea, but I think this looks a bit too silly and clownish.

    This may be the best photo I have seen in a while. The mix and match of black and white makes me dizzy. Classic!

    not my taste personally – but you need a gutsy personality to walk like this on the street!

    This guy pulls his black-and-white nightmare of an outfit off confindently…one person uses the word symmetry and you read it more than once. Where it is in this outfit is not evident to me.

    whoever said "black in summer", it's japan, the weather can be pretty moderate this time of the year.

    I probably COULD like this look if something were subtracted from it. But as it stands…I think it's fug.

    Agree with the above – very CDG. It all just seems to click together. Nice.

    i cannot love this outfit, and i'm glad that i don't. the volume of his jumper is great, but the harem pants just look ridiculous–i find that few women can pull this off, never mind men. and the pattern, and the shirt tails. this is one of those things that in context can be pretty nifty, but if it was me, i know i'd look back at this picture in 2 years and be like, "what was i thinking?" glad this made it on the blog though. cheers for confidence, anyways, that's half the battle.
