You should take more pictures of the "gothninja look". I love this style and his is no exception. I love how he is able to combine different shades of black(especially that cardigan <3) and topping it off by contrasting it with the white from his Rick Owens high tops!
I just received The Sartorialist, book version. It is perfect, so many of my favorite shots mixed with new ones to discover in a compact size yet generous with photos. Having the mirror of your website in book form is awesome because now I don't have to print out my favorite shots to put up on my bulletin board. It's a complete reflection of the eye of the photographer. Now if only we can have Garance's book.
Maybe I'm too old to understand the Gothninja look (37- though I def get goth), but when I see this look- I can't help it- I immediately see Dylan Klebold. Maybe if there hadn't been a Columbine I'd see the Matrix, but something about it just evokes – depressed person hiding himself under big coat. Sorry. I'm sure the sneakers are the latest, edgiest shoes though.
Lovely top half, ruined by the bottom half. I find it hard to praise those shoes or trousers; there's nothing elegant or attractive about them, they just serve to make him look a little more like a spaceman.
Great picture, I like how sparse the architecture of the building is, it provides the perfect background, with all that glass! Love the sneakers, although I have long had a pet peeve with boots that have all those laces AND THEN have a zipper on the side, like these ones. Shall we have laces OR a zipper? It feels like cheating- a designer should be true to the garment, and wouldnt it be funny if a corset or a bustier had all those intricate laces that were originally designed to drive a lover crazy, but then it had a zipper for a quickie? No, no, no
I like the clothes, they go well with a slim person. The bag, IMHO, would be better on a woman, typically I like more structured bags for men, but I have to agree that it goes with the outfit. Jorge from WPB
Everyone comments about the kicks (which are very cool) but the pants are amazing with the shoes! The black fabric on the thighs and being tucked in to the top of his sneakers is the key to the ensemble in my unjustified opinion.
Are those pockets as long as they appear to be, or is that just a shadow? It looks like he could fit wine bottles in them! It also looks like there are big patches on the front of pants, and then some black fabric behind the legs…there's all kinds of crazy stuff going on here! It's deceptively simple, all these dark colors.
"Black is kind of boring. I see so many people wearing black as if it's meant to look dressy. Kind of a lack of imagination."
it actually takes effort to match black on black on black if you want to do it right like this gentlemen here. not all black are the same as some black carries with it a tinge of green or tinge of blue or tinge of purple, etc. then you also have to consider texture and fabric. so one has to be careful to get the right types of black together.
when done right, it looks like he just threw a bunch of blacks together, but done wrong, he probably wouldn't have made it on the sartorialist blog to begin with.
the bag is by a little new zealand label called deadly ponies. you can find them on http://deadlyponies.com/ i had way too much stuff in it on the day, it is not meant to be that full looking normally fyi.
Joy Mars, hopefully not. I am certain the suit will stay a staple in any businessman's wardrobe regardless of goths, emos and vampires lurking central business districts. And if ever boardrooms will look like the set of The Matrix meet Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, that will be all the more reason for gentlemen such as I to wear suits.
