    It's amazing how this guy pairs a striped bag and hoodie.

    Awesome!!! My guess is that the stripes photo is shot in front of the Ralph Lauren store in Omotesando, and the top picture next to LaForet, facing the Gap! It's nice to have to you here, I am certain you can find really great shots. The other day, I saw an elderly man taking his daily walk in a traditional Japanese yukata (a kind of robe) which was in navy, with geta sandals (traditional footwear made of wood). But what made the outfit fascinating was his neck area, which was wrapped in a Burberry scarf. And he was holding the best mahagony cane!

    Hope you will enjoy your stay!
    I wonder where the second picture was taken?

    that jacket in the first photo is a Kashmiri crewl work jacket. i would recognise that embroidery and style anywhere. Crewel is a traditional art form (one of many different types) of embroidery in the Indian occupied Valley of Kashmir.

    i love kashmiri embroidery (my family originates from there) and have many shawls, coats and dresses with this and other types of embroidery – i would be happy wearing them all the time – and it really makes me happy to see something so special to me on here!

    i would never have thought this one on a guy though! love globalism – a kasmiri coat wearing guys in japan : )

    The picture in the middle with the stickers on the blind in front of the fan looks very much paul-smith'ish. Reminds me of his book "You can find inspiration in everything".

    Sart, this is also true for your blog and your posts. The styles shown on your pics are not always "wow, how can I look like this", but it inspires you – and, to say it with Paul, if not, people, look again!

    Thank you!

    Love that embroidered jacket balanced with the stripes and tan slacks. Love the dark blue bag. Really amazing look — love how these Japanese guys know how to work color and patterns into their everyday wear. Still remember the guy in the orange Etro coat on the broad steps. Thank you so much — wish I were in Japan too!

    I really like the blues on blues at the bottom as well as the guy's double-zip sweater. His spectacles are unusually professorial. What's in the lower part of the frames-TV cameras?

    Not keen on the floral jacket on top but he doesn't seem to mind. He wears the T-shirt with its tight neck nicely too.

    i really like the first look, i love to wear stripes and floral patterns myself, i think the pattern mix is great-and the guy looks so easy going and happy! definitely the best attitude to carry off clothes in :)

    I love the black sweater over the striped hoodie. And the bag. It works so well together, makes the stripes pop. Also those glasses are so cool.

    i love the combination of the stripes. relaxed harmony perhaps?

    i would really want to know where on earth the bag is sold.

    in the beginning i thought of the 2nd photo as something strange and then realized its some kind of fan. aha..

    The striped outfit looks like cruise wear for women of a "certain age". Not working.

    I LOVE the second photo – is it a t-shirt vending machine?

    Always interesting. Always!

    I first thought they were both female and I liked the looks. Then I realized otherwise. I still like the looks, but a little too androgynous for my taste.

    Yay, you've finally come to Japan! Welcome.

    I'd love to hear what you think about Tokyo's fashion in comparison to your other major destinations. I find Tokyo style is so diverse, with everyone seeming to have their own person style. And it seems to me like it's all about the details here, which I love!

    Oh I can't wait for more Sart photos!

    I can't help feeling like the man in the first photo simply bought a bedspread from the Vermont Country Store (a "country store" that is more "catalog for the elderly" than it is country or stor…y) and fashioned a coat out of it (one like this http://www.vermontcountrystore.com/browse/Home/For-The-Home/Bedding/Bedspreads-Comforters/Crewelwork-Bedspread/D/30100/P/1:100:1030:10300:100890/I/f11532?evar3=BROWSE)

    I'm thrilled you are in Toykyo – one of my favourite cities in the world.

    I adore the fashion in Tokyo. Japanese fashionistas are masters at layering, love individual, quirky details, and the men are as dedicated to fashion as the women.

    I'm so inspired when I am there. I'm sure you will be too. Enjoy.
