The women are fabulous for sure. The gent on the right, I like the coat- probably quite warm. The idea of cropped pants (I thought) was that they would be anchored by very heavy-looking round toe shoes, like Church’s. The look is quite different with pointed dainty shoes, IMO. Are they really anti-establishment or are they really trust fund babies looking like they are roughing it through their college years? Jorge from W Palm Beach
If he got rid of the belt over the coat I would like it a little better and it wouldn’t look so feminine (to me). I think the gentleman in the green plaid Number 9 coat did the feminine look better. They are women’s coats, right?
to the person who said it makes no sense for a man to wear a ladies coat. I think now days things are becoming more unisex, and I appreciate this guy’s self expression. I can’t really tell if it’s a ladies coat anyhow. It looks like it fits him fine, so whats the fuss?!
The guy in the woman’s coat has just the right atitude to pull it off. He’s having fun but it still works and I don’t think the coat is “alone”- hat, shoes,shirt, pants, and his hair are all working with it. It would be interesting to see the coat without the belt- I think it might look even better. A fun shot.
Would’ya look at that smirk? No one loves what he’s wearing more than he does. Rightly so. I love how he starts out from the black and shiny wet street with his shoes and trousers and becomes all shades of brown and auburn with that cocky hat like an expletive on top of his head… like he sprouted there. And Leopard Girl’s beret and gloves match. vive la france…
Ouuh la lalaaa you gotta give it to the french, their confident and erratic fashion sense is unparalleled…fabulous bunch lol Concerning the man in the “woman” 70′s coat..regardless of the minor fitting details, Im sure his personality is correlated to his style of garments (thus making him a true sartorialist) and I think in the end that’s the beauty of it “wearing to express” (D. Miller from Barker black). This trend of women’s coat wearing men is taking off more than one might think I come to realize.
I think you used to shoot more people with personal style that came about totally organically, but now you seem to mostly shoot men and women in high end, expensive garments, where it can be more difficult to “go wrong”. I am happy to see some real people here who dress to express–regardless of where the clothing came from!
On paper I would probably not much like what this dude is wearing (woman’s coat, highwater straight legs) but his attitude and youth and surrounding himself with friends of the same feather make it all work. Obviously not a look for everyone.
I had a coat like that in 1969. It had belonged to my mother and was from the thirties. A furrier in Prague, working in his own flat, had adapted it for me and I wore a leather belt which clinched my waist really thin. I travelled to London in it forty years ago to the day. I was sixteen. Nothing changes in life or fashion.
