We’re wondering how the top look would work on a damsel less blessed with height? It’s likely to stir a Nights of Arabia stampede of camels at the oasis. On this lovely muse, it works. The bottom look? Hmmm. It’s a bit too Vanilla Ice crossing Fifth Avenue. The only thing missing? A mullet perhaps.
WOW. I love it. I like the glare from the cab (a clean one, at that) against the black outfit, and the fact that everyone in the foreground is wearing rather dark colors to make it pop. Secondly, great outfit. He has long lean legs to pull off the look- I would never wear high-tops and certainly not in zebra-on-acid stripe, but it works on him. Dress shirt with elastic sleeve straps (very Helmut Lang), workout shorts and high-tops, concluded with a rather dressy leather briefcase. Perhaps it is because everything fits him so well that the ensemble works. Thanks for a wonderful picture! Jorge from W Palm Beach
oh my. at first i thought, “eh…that’s a plain picture.” BUT, i’m glad i zoomed in b/c the whole thing (bag, shoes, jacket, toned les, white x straps on elbows) almost makes me laugh but then i find myself surprisingly impressed.
Love the first shot. Black and white always looks good and I love the proportions here. The high-waisted trousers are perfect with the white tank and the cropped trouser leg shows off her shoes and makes the entire ensemble light for Spring.
wow. the high-waisted pants, somehow, really do look quite smashing on the woman. as for the man, he sure has a great set of legs. (rawr). and i guess it helps that van cleef & arpels is in the background, too. *swoons*
Dudes got some chopsticks. He’s “the perfect guy” He’s got it all, so it seems. The jacket reminds me of some stuff Helmut Lang did when he first joined Prada group a ways back. His own label of course. McQueenish now maybe. I know somebody knows, and I must know, so, let me know. What do you mean No. HA!
i just bought the exact pants that that women is wearing and i was debating whether or not i should keep them. they’re so hard to wear, and i have to wear them with heels because i’m very petite and they look goofy otherwise. this has inspired me to experiment with them a little more. any other suggestions for how to rock these pants would be much appreciated!!
limited edition supras sold out everywhere…. which he is rocking… underneath perfectly toned and shaved legs, cuffed shorts…. it all seems a little intensively groomed and over the top to me. The garnish on-top of it all is the pose (as if he knows who was behind him at the moment!) I mean… I would never want to make personality assessments due to clothes alone, but we have quite a character here…
The gentleman’s shorts are a wee bit tight. Also, the YSL bag is not unisex from what I know. Of course, there is nothing wrong with appropriating elements from the opposite sex, but it just doesn’t look right. Especially combined with tight tight hot pants and those shoes, for which I have no words to describe.
I think the girl looks like a shapeless mess. The colours are nice (B&W: not hard to coordinate) but where are her legs in those things?? No calves, no curves, no nothing, just a waistline at the height my grandmother enjoys, with no torso left above the belt. Not a fan.
I am definately not feeling this guy’s look. Short shorts and high tops without socks…that hasn’t looked good since Magic Johnson wore that look with tube socks while winning NBA titles in the 80s! Next time, he should think about sporting the sneaks with some jeans and the shorts with sandals, loafers, low cut sneaks, etc.
RE: Garth “Ah, the wonder that is high waisted pants on women…can make the most beautiful butt in the world look just awful.”
….I wasn’t aware that the sole purpose of fashion is to make one’s butt look good. If this were true, every woman in the world would wear nothing but lululemon pants.
I’m not always fond of this style of pants either, but I think this woman rocks them. They’re just baggy enough that they make a statement without swallowing her whole. I also love the subtle ruffles on the shirt…together with the bare ankles and shoulders, they keep the look very feminine and pretty. I am inspired!!
He is so incredibly sexy. His outfit is so fun. The sunglasses, turned up collar, armbands (Are those worn over the shirt or sewn to it?), shorts, perfectly fitted shorts with wide cuffs, watch and bracelet combo, and those ridiculous shoes. The groomed shaved legs and facial stubble are a necessary components.
He looks great.
My only tiny wish is that the rings on the bag were square.
The top she is wearing is “small” and nicely balances the volume of the pants below. I really love how she wears the whole outfit with such ease.
Competitive cyclists and swimmers will sometimes shave their legs so as to reduce drag. His legs do look like those of a serious athlete. In any case, if I were walking behind him, I would certainly enjoy the view afforded by those shorts. I’m not so keen on the loose tops of those shoes. Imagine how much better he would look with something fitted to the leg.
I am not old enough to remember what the `80 looked like, but without any period reference in my head, I see a hot guy in a very sporty and sexy outfit. For those who are dishing all the criticism above, I guess fashion really is about reminiscence.
the shoes are supra available at pickyourshoes.com if you want to put up with the most hair-tearing-out level of customer service you can imagine and obv the bag is YSL. great combo on this fine antelope of a gay.
Ok, the possibility of him being a serious athlete aside and my indiference to shaved legs for men in such a case, i still do not like this getup. Looks a little, I mean, way over the top, contrived, and the shorts are too short for his apparent circumstance.
A little harsh are we Mr. or Mrs. Anonymous in between Reanna and Specialward’s comment? There’s nothing messy about this girl. I see plenty of torso above the belt and fyi, calves appear on the backside of one’s legs and this is a full frontal shot, so not quite sure how you know this one’s. That complexion is fabulous and what a sweet smile.
Love the guy, love his shaved legs. love the tight shorts. i’m old enough to remember when men wore tight jeans (the early 70s) and you could see their butts – cute, high butts. then all that hip hop baggy stuff took over and i lost my view of those cute butts. this guy brings it back. more! more!
I just bought a pair of vintage pants (two days ago!!) that are exactly the same as the ones that girl is wearing. My boyfriend thinks they’re ‘dorky’. The Sartorialist doesn’t. Guess who’s opinion I’m going to go with?
I LOVE her pants! That’s the kind of silhouette I feel really good in. If you are tall with a small waist but wider hips, this is such a good look–it’s flattering and very comfortable! She looks lovely.
The man’s photo is a bit of gay porn isn’t it? I jhave nothing against that because he does have great legs and I have immense respect for anyone who can be so confident just walking the streets in that kind of look. Look at his stance, he stands like he rules the place, and he didn’t even know that Sart was taking the picture-just the way he is. That’s great.
It takes great confidence and not to mention great legs to wear short shorts on the streets… You’ll have to pay me a billion bucks to wear one… Love the look! But the shoes… hmmm… it added something waaay beyond expected, so I liked it… and did I mention about the legs?
Am pretty sure I sat across the aisle from him on the subway this morning. Same bag, same jacket, same legs. Hair is bleached Champagne blond now (a very good dye job, actually). Actually an incredibly handsome guy but WAY too much foundation and powder. (I swear it, though magnificently applied.) He got off the B train at 34th Street.
I think everything he has on is hott…The Supra Kamakazi's are amazing…The Bag…is so hott…and the look and the confidence he portraits with his sexy shorts and his lovely legs! It is a well executed look!
