This outfit is interesting. Would have loved to see it however at a more summerry place. The grey concrete and the garbage bin sets it off in a miserable way. He looks as though he would like to be on vacation but is not.
Kind reminder: Smoking is neither good for your health, nor cool.
We don’t know if he’s a fashionisto or an average guy with a fashion sense or maybe even a homeless person who has a knack for dressing well on zero budget. Whoever is his and whatever his “station in life”, I don’t like that he is portrayed next to a trash can.
What’s your problem, Len? And who are you talking to? “Fashion people”? I worked a long time with homeless peole, and – especially to many of the young folks – it mattered very much to be clean and well dressed, if possible, trendy. Did you think people just chuck their personallty and their pride when they lose their homes? So who’s out to lunch?
“Fashion people”get far too often pigeonholed, for being oblivious to the nature of reality. Sure, there are extremes of human nature, but there are also, balances too. People develop/evolve at different paces or not at all. Try to see the good in people….is always a better option. Cynicism just breeds more cynicism. Hate breeds more hate. Very simple equation. Tolerance breeds more tolerance….
Joannesez has inner and outer beauty, I’m sure… I’m sure Len does too…
Misunderstandings….the conundrum of reality. =S
Let’s kiss and make up….hhhhmmmm makeup! Speaking of makeup, HEART the MiuMiu lipstick in the recent collection….dark red lips with a smudge of black matte in the middle. =)
The entire set of pieces is so well pulled together, and what makes it pop for me is the ankle wear. It brings such levity along with that sky blue in the jacket and the flower print shorts. Yet he carries it off with understated masculinity. Not sure how he does it as I think most would not be able to carry it off.
Strange that no one noticed the clever visual rhyming of the stance of the man’s legs and the shapes within the garbage bag itself. As though both subjects have that attitude of careless confidence. This is why i love The Sartorialist. Fantastic details.
