He has a nice Northern European musician look and a very amiable face. And I like the re-appropriated jacket with the kitschy bird, which reflects the current hot, hot trend in print, textiles and home design. It’s a trend I’ve been seeing for quite awhile though — I’m personally wary of investing in too much birdy design because I think the trend will reach critical mass and go right to overkill.
I’ve always shied away from buying jackets with graphics on them, preferring to make my own sartorial jokes. This fellow seems to have pulled it off. Now I’ll have to re-think the Comme de Garcon suit with white boot-prints on the lapel, which I saw at a vintage store…
As far as tired looks go, jackets with screenprinting are way up there. I can’t really understand how this look got popular in the first place. Screenprinting on anything other than t-shirts is a bad idea, and even then, proceed with caution.
anonymous 1.02 maybe he is holding the phone cos he just used it. Why, because it’s in his hand do you assume it is an accessory rather than functional, and WHY in general do some people make it their goal in life to nit-pick about these strangers (who are nice enough to agree to being photographed for our viewing pleasure) as much as possible?
I think he’s really cool and totally hot, I bet he’s a nice southern gentleman who makes a mean batch of cheese grits. Or maybe he’s some kinda architect. I also imagine he has a gigantic cat. Anyone agree?
Love his jacket. I believe sometimes we have to veer away from being plain and just go for prints. This isn’t over the top, just right. And I love how he just wrapped his scarf around randomly. He sure pulled it off!
at first i thought they were paint smudges on his jacket, and i thought they were cool. now i see they’re eagles, and i don’t like it as much. but it’s ok. paint that flew off a canvas you were working on is way sexier.
