    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!

    Will have to check out Rick Owens in NYC next month. Love the way the white soles caught my attention first and the laces drew my eye up to the layers of black. Very nice!!

    Enjoyed meeting you in DC Monday at Masa14, thanks for coming!

    1 of 2 times I have seen these kicks work well. Not a fan of the bag though.

    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.

    Nice kicks. Not so sure about that coat though. Is it a bathrobe?

    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.

    What a wonderful coincidence: I've seen an other kind of "New Museum" on a blog called Advanced Style…
    You should have a look !

  35. jefske

    October 22, 2009 at 6:45 am

    wow this photo totally brings me back to NY. By the way, the new museum is amazing for anyone who is interested in contemporary art.

    As for the laceless comment about the hi tops, that does look good but I didn't want to break the shoes in like that.

    thx for the photo Mr S.
    good memories.
    ps. the gothninja comment is also very fitting, I think I was planning to do a lot of walking that day which is why I wore the trackies for practical reasons. :)

    I love the Rick Owens style looks, especially on the guys. This is the perfect balence of texture and colour!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    @tundrababe: yeah, Rick Owens is all about the details. his colors won't shock you but his details will grab you.

    Which museum is that? He looks great, maybe a bit "heavy" style but he looks great. Un peu de Dior Homme et un peu des arts marcieux!


  64. Maranda

    October 22, 2009 at 9:12 pm

    If it wasn't for the bag it would be perfect. I like his expression, I don't think he looks sad – he looks like he's about to smile. Nervously.

    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.

    Adore this photo for the contrast in the dark masculine colours and the glass/steel/cement background with the softness of the bag and jersey material, his expression and cupid bow lips!

    He looks really short because of how long his sweaters are and how high his sneakers are. But i love his murse.

    the bag is by a little new zealand label called deadly ponies.

    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.
