    Two Carhart hats in one week? Do you have a new obsession?

    I must say, having grown up in farm country, I’m happy to see them on your blog.

    I love the shoes more than everything else. They just seem especially made for him.

    Same brown hat as the previous post.

    This dude is more Willy than Lafayaette…but he’s pretty rad nonetheless!

    I think I’m in love. I like the fact that the Carhartt hat doesn’t match the shoes in the least. Very quirky.

    He is so charming and his awkwardness makes him kinda sexy :)

    Wow this picture just looks so serious, with the facial expression and the clothes as well ^^
    Awesome outfit! :P

    Carhartt in the fashion world? What’s next- Woolrich, Columbia??

    Typical east-coast hipster. Great shot of course, but not sure why this is featured as something special.

    Nice, this is a great outfit! I really like that shirt and those jeans.

    He fits perfectly in the setting. I like his lanky awkwardness, too.

    I love his style… Simple, but so full of character…

    Woolrich is sold at Barneys. I’m sure it’s already in the fashion world.

    The BEST part is the anklet. Unexpected. Sexy.

    He’s standing in front of the auto repair garage next to the gas station
    on the corner of Lafayatte and Houston
    across the street from the Puck Building.
    I lived a few blocks from there
    when I was about his age.
    I never rolled up my jeans, sockless.
    But I must admit to being
    a proto-hipster twenty-odd years ago.

    Sorry, doesn’t work for me, looks like he never learned how to wash his clothes without shrinking them. And those shoes look clownish.

  34. Carol

    November 4, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    I think this guy works at Oak on Bond St. He’s sort of aloof, but the way he dresses is unique, well thought out and uncharacteristic of the look you’d expect from someone who works there.

    This is the 3rd time (not from you) that I have seen Carharrt gear in a post. I did hear those zip up garage suits are the warmest things!
    I like the color of his shoes and how his slim frame suits the clothing-He also has lovely cheekbones !

  36. Anon

    Stamp on “non admire.” This guy looks like he could be straight out of Echo Park, Los Angeles. This is a great thing.

    Everything might not be “much”, yet seems like his whole outfit and the background are making such a composition!

    Whoa, check out his cheekbones!

  41. JV

    Great contrast to the girl in the hat below. While her beanie magically adds to her outfit, his beanie does more to fulfil the hipster stereotype. Seems run of the mill today, I wonder what people will say in 40 years…

    He’d be even cuter if he worked at that garage.

    like the turned up jeans….no socks….the way he is standing…i can imagine him changing his clothes and become any tread… like a cute out doll..

    The dark / rolled up jeans with oxfords/ no socks is so tired. All the guys who work at JCrew at the mall here in Nashville do it – so you know it’s done.

    I take the opportunity to say: I’m 1.93m, quite thin, and it’s so hard for me to find close-fitting shirts with sleeves long enough… :)

    i love how his collar’s buttoned all the way up and his black anklet…it’s the little details that set this outfit from all the other dozen versions out there

  53. Cece

    November 5, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    It’s okay if it’s, “so done”.
    It’s fashion. It’s fun. Study history from the time of the ancient Greeks…there ain’t nothin’ new under the sun.

    Classic hipster style from hat to cool maroon suede shoes … totally of the moment.

    Love the combination of autumnal colors that don’t match–nice combo of warms. As a fan of Doc Martens myself, I’m pleased to see that his are well loved.

    Love this guys look. Simple, but perfectly executed. When will people learn that excellent style isn’t a matter of wearing something never before seen by man or beast. Great style is this. Its wearing something simple and fitting where all the pieces work together perfectly. These are the kind of pictures that inspire me. The only reason he could “look like every other person ” is that someone looking doesn’t have a good eye for detail.

    Shoes without socks. Sorry but I am not down with this trend. On a chilly rainy night in London last night, I watched as so many men walked past with bare ankles. Why? Why are they doing this to themselves? Apart from the discomfort, why deny yourself the opportunity to get fashion-funky with sockage? MacGuffin just does not understand…

    He works at the OAK store which is near lafayette / houston st. , he has been helping me with finding the shoes i was searching. nice seeing him on this site.. he is unbeliveably chill, i wish i could get to know him. unfortunatley these guys seem not to exist over here in europe..

    This is a great response from guys who ask, “how can i look cool in jeans and a shirt,” this gentlemen is how…
    Also Scott, i know it’s time consuming but i really like it when you explain why you took a picture and what it was about the textures, proportions etc. that the person is wearing that drew you to them. It educates me about how to dress.

    Being from Portland Oregon I dare say this movement in “hipster” street fashion comes straight out of the NW vernacular. Of course I love it.

    great composition and echoes (cheques and square windows), great tonal colour, interesting demeanor.

  71. eliza the punk

    November 7, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    What’s interesting to me about him is how his interesting combination of formal and casual gives his style a bit of an edge, a line to which my eye keeps returning. Hat slouched back, jeans loosely rolled, but a formal style of shoe laced tight, shirt-cuffs buttoned, shirt buttoned all the way, even his posture halfway between a slouch and a military stance

  72. David

    November 9, 2011 at 6:47 pm

    I definitely saw him at OAK during my last trip just last week!

    Very unique features. Great help too!

    He’s just…. a hipster. Go to Detroit, every male looks like this. Carhart is from there, afterall.

    November 17, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    thats twice that pesky carharrt logo has appeared on that same same brown hat. cut it off people… theyre not paying you to advertise their stuff. a logo aint styling. otherwsire sharp as a needle and great pic to boot
