    very well thought about combinations, even the way the coat's sleeve was folded was analysed. The boots are fabulous, very androgynous as well as the bag. The sqaure jaw is stunning. All in all, he must be a stylist for all we know. :)

    Erm…Yikes!!! The jacket is a winner! However, everything else is too feminine for my liking! I do however, applaud the gentleman for his own unique style.

    I love this look from the waist up, even the way he styled his hair is great. I'm not sure about the bag and the pants but the boots are awesome, I really like the squared off toe. Overall good style.

    The Man Who Fell to Earth–that was a genius film. Someone should make an updated version with foreign actors/setting and a more dramatic/active plot (Tokyo, 2010). This guy (is he Japanese?)has the looks to be the lead.

    Gosh, we hate to go against the grain here, but the coat seems ill-fitting and the accessories seem too feminine.

    We agree with We Spy though, and applaud his sense of personal style. Plus, it really only matters if he likes it.

    I'm kinda with princess glee. This look is so androgynous that I'm not sure what I'm looking at: a beautiful man or a handsome woman. Either way that is some sharp styling.

    the jacket is my favorite piece from his outfit! i also don't really think it's too big for him, it only seems that way in contrast to the super tight jeans that make his legs seem incredibly skinny!

    a great deail is how he pushed up both sleeves to show his bracelets on one side and the sleeve of his white shirt on the other.

    Too feminine? Too skinny? Ha, none of you know style or gays.

    This boy is on point, and most guys I know are at least as skinny.

    Outfit works 100%, although I'd personally have to cover the other wrist too; the cuff looks out of place without bracelets.

    When you cut the picture into 2 halfs up and down:down picture will let you think its a part of a woman going shopping with high heels and cool bracelets and a huge handbag,top picture will let you think its a picture of a businessman with serious white shirt and tie.This makes you 2 different perspectives.

    OH my goodness. I don't feel like this is as androgynous as Bowie. I like the feminine accessories and I feel like the look maintains it's masculinity in spite of them or because of him.

    It's daring and edgy and pulled off without being kitschy. I love it.

    Love the androgyny…very unique, very confident, very him. He pulls it off well. I would love to see what's under the jacket. It seems to be very interesting.

    The boots…I doubt I would wear them, but if I decided to, I wonder if I would be able to pull them off.

    Wow… This is so beautiful it almost makes me cry. It's like he is not even human, he is more like a concept sketch from some brilliant designer. I mean, everything is thought through in this, and with that face too. What a striking man!

    And also, I don't understand how some of you can have a hard time telling he is a man. He is way masculine, even though he styles himself in an androgynous way!

    great silhouette!! he pulls it off well.
    he is NOT skinny…looks great!? I don't know what ppl are complaining about. Imagine him bigger in those shoes!!

    btw I love the Givenchy? top that is peeking through the coat, and the boots!! What are they? Lanvin?

    bag looks a little hmmm…cheap:(

    I love him, every part of his ensemble. I love the platform boots, the skinny rolled up jeans, the incredible coat, the jewels, the purse, and to top it all off the menswear underneath it all. He is positively raging hot!

    April 6, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    He can pull it off…. i couldnt…. i have large bone structure… this would look a disaster on me…. the coat… the boot…. the bag… the skinny jean..i think the boots must be heeled… i have this impression..and i think im right…. it is feminine… but its not new.. its very dandy ish and old …. his attitude is classy….

    I'm a big fan of the androgynous looks – runway or sidewalk – and his style is impeccable, but I must mention that he is awfully thin. I know that this photo is about the clothes and the styling, but personal style can still be impeccable allthewhile weighing over 105 lbs.

    Great find, I must say.

    I love this man’s style! I do not love a lot of the comments here, though: “men should be masculine”? You guys sound like the people a hundred years ago throwing fits over women wearing pants. Masculinity and femininity have very little to do with being a man or a woman. This man is hot and the feminine touches make him more so.
