Or just great name for people like this guy, who is not a fashionista, just a guy who looks great doing his thing in rather modest, obviously vintage, clothing that looks amazing on him. I completely agree, Aga!
I honestly do not know anyone who smokes any more. I do know people who gave them up though, perhaps that is it. I am 49 and live in Toronto – I hope young Milanese/Parisians/New Yorkers will eventually give them up too.
I think this man is attractive.he was featured before i think. I like the clean look of his outfit and his face. I really like his classic black leather loafers. I can’t believe people still smoke today with all the warnings and knowledge of the effects of smoking. That is a choice but it just scares me that it’s one of those things whose effects you cannot really undo
I think the trick to wearing vintage without looking like you’re wearing a costume is to pick pieces that are more timeless or classic, but still keeping certain traits and quirks that can only come from the particular era they’re from. These details couldâ€”when pulled off properlyâ€”make an outfit stand out in the right way. This is undeniably a tough balancing act, although the gentleman pictured here seems to know what he’s doing.
The trousers with frogmouth pockets in the photoâ€”which were common in the late ’60s through the ’70s but rarely seen todayâ€”would have looked dated (and yes, costume-y) if they flared too much, and/or if they displayed some loud, garish pattern or print. By keeping his choice sober (and by combining it with more contemporary-looking items), he successfully avoided looking like he stepped out of a time capsule.
As great as this photo is in black and white, it does make me curious about his color choices.
