The thing is Sart, is that this look isn’t really anything special for NYC, its just something you don’t put up on here as much as I’d like. I wish you’d focus more on people who are trying less. Most of the people you shoot look like they got up, thought “what would the sartorialist do?” and get dressed. I guess he sort of does too, but at least it left the comb-over and vest-tie-blazer combo at home.
While some ppl. might say this is a overdone or standard look, I do like his b&w shirt underneath, as well as his colorful socks. Good touches I think that take it away from just skinny pants & asymmetrical haircut.
Nice point on the subjectivity of “special” depending on one’s location around the globe though. Agreed 100%, I mean I’m only from Vancouver and while I have seen this general style done on streets here, it is still clearly very different from what you see the average person walking down the street wearing, which I appreciate and that alone is usually enough to warrant a 2nd glance from me.
i saw a punk girl wearing a combo of two tones of bright green tights and fishnets a few blocks south of there a few years ago and it marked me in some sort of extreme way. your purple-panted chap reminded me of green-tight girl and now i feel the need to dig out some funky color for today. grey+black is great, but color breathes life into spring that doesn’t seem to have sprung.
That gentleman is cool. I couldn’t even imagine one day waking up and trying such an outfit, but pay attention to the details. See those socks with the yellow accompanying the purple pants? Yes he pays attention to his wardrobe and no, that’s not the same as trying too hard. The silhouette is sharp, the colors look great for him, he’s definitely created a very specific look that you can associate with certain circles but he’s done it very, very well.
After 10 years of living in NYC and coming from Argentina, all I can say is that this guy is very stylish and looks great and edgy IN NYC, but he wonÂ´t stop the traffic…Put him in Buenos Aires, and the whole thing changes, he could be mistaken for an English singer or maybe an actor…and get lots of attention and stares on the streets!!! AND probably stop the traffic… What is normal in NYC is not always so in other places.But STYLE is internacional…
It’s weird that this guy was featured by Amy LaRocca on the Video LookBook at New York Magazine’s web-site the same day, in the same outfit, on the same doorstep. He must’ve felt pretty good about himself being approached by two style huntersâ€”with good reason.
