    I'm feeling the mix of patterns and textures (i.e., from shoe laces to flannel to the cushion of the jacket). Awesome.

    Black & white brings out the richness of the night & makes him more a part of it.

    objectively, i love the coat and shoes. but i think he ruins the outfit with those ridiculous pants…what is sartorial about them?

    I love that mix with pattern (and i guess they come of better in black and white, but curious of the colors). His attitude to top the patternmix makes the picture even more fantastic!

    Love the contrast of textures and pattern, you almost forget he is surrounded by concrete. The shape of the midsection articulated by the unbuttoned bottom of the shirt and slightly drop crotch denim is great. Nice proportion all around!

    This is a nice photo-yes. But am I the only one who is having trouble appreciating the proportions of this outfit? Torso looks so-o-o-o lo-o-ng, and legs so teensy wee. I suppose this is a kind of riff on hip hop, but it's not working for me.

    February 10, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    I love that this picture was taken in black and white as it draws your eye directly to the floral pring. Which leads me to my next comment: a guy is wearing floral print! J'adore.

    February 10, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    this is fllyyyyyy

    though I wish boymen would wear their trousers higher (like a drop crotch pair of jeans could get a similar look without wearing trousers so low that there is a risk of the legs looking comical, perhaps?)

    This picture evokes that foreign movie "La Haine" with a buzz-cut Vincent Cassell–classic eighties punk-rap chic with a French twist. Rugged devil-may-care attitude. Nice shot!

    Not a fan of those shoes, or the pants, but I guess this is the look he was aiming for. Excellent photography btw…

    Great picture-this looks like it could've been taken here in Orange County, Ca (same style here).

    Love how you captured the typical teenage expression, "Alright, take my picture already."

    You can see almost the same look at most USA college campuses. After a while, it isn't eye-catching.

    This is interesting because because it is different. At first look it's normal "youth" wear, which in itself is interesting enough to see on the sartorialist. Then you see the floral pattern and the shoes and it all adds up a really cool picture.

    Love the shot. Paris has a great style for Hip Hop, but not really liking the floral on the jacket. It's too conflicting.

    Love that you're posting some true cool street style … MORE OF THIS! It's why we fell in love in the first place.

    That floral coat is immense. I almost feel like it's been turned inside out and he's wearing it lining side out. So great.

    As for the calls for more womens shots, meh! I prefer mens fashion and your take on it anyway.

    loving how street this is with juxtaposition of masculine/feminine in such an overt way. Florals, workman boots, plaid? delicous.

    Anyone know what denim he is wearing? really dig it.

    The jacket is insane! He emits a strong masculinity while wrapped in a floral pattern. Seemingly easy and unpretentious, and a bit tongue in cheek. Love it!

    I love how he creatively blends his floral overcoat with his plaid button-up underneath. It seems like a complete misfit, but with his confidence, he can definitely pull it off!

    The more I look at this photograph, the more I love it.
    Great contrast between light and dark and the various patterns in the pieces this young man has put together to make his outfit so incredible. I love his semi-tough posturing, but still there is a sweetness and vulnerability that belongs only to youth.
