    Oh dear, isn't there a law against that much matching plaid on one person?

    Seeing it from the rear makes me wonder what this outfit looks like from the front. :)

    oh my god. PJs…and ones, in addition, in which you don't want to be caught dead in.

    I'd say plaid like that only works if you're as thin a David Bowie. Or, did you just catch someone grabbing the morning paper in their pajamas & robe?

    What a lucky shot with the red brick wall echoing the geometry and red in the plaid.

    Nice.

    Reminds me of the joke: "Know why it is that bagpipers always march while they play? They're trying to get away from the noise."

    Still, kudos to this man for reminding us all to dare to take a fashion risk, to make a "statement" that others will deem better left unsaid. I care less about "liking" clothes/looks than I do about having my eyes opened and, then, having to think about what I like or don't like, and why. Provocative always trumps safe, perhaps….

    Wow, knocked my socks off! Looks like it had the same effect on him. A truly NYC outfit, brave and stylish, original and daring. I also like the way the surrounding walls echo the plaid.

    What am I seeing? Is it pajama fabric? Wool? Is it tailored, pressed? Bare ankles coming out of shoes not slippers. Where is he going? Where has he been? My mind can't make sense of what my eyes are seeing. That's a good thing.

    I believe this man is Eduard from Brooks Brother's Black Fleece shop on Bleecker Street in NYC.

    this is like the fancy version of chinese people cruising around town in their head-to-toe matching flannel pajamas, usually printed with some ridiculous cartoon character or big, silly swirls. if this guy was in shanghai, he'd get ticketed–the gov't is attempting to ban folks wearing their pjs outside for the upcoming expo. even sillier! it's such a part of the culture here, and this guy would totally fit in. but maybe on the hip side of town.

    He is wearing some gear from the Brooks Brothers spring line. I found it on their website. Eyepopping…

    Not my normal lenghty spiel (and YES! that is the actual spelling of the word – NOT 'schpiel' which is how its pronounced), but you get the point. LOL

    He is in his pajamas and dressing gown and has just left his kitchen because he ran out of milk. He is running to the corner deli. No way is this street wear.

    At first I thought that this was just a really well made bathrobe but then I saw the pants. I think that the secret to this is the tailoring. The refinement that keeps this several degrees from "pimp suit" garishness while still being refreshing.

    I want to see it from the front!!

    he looks like he just came out of an hospital and didn't have street clothes, so he decided to walk in PJs…not stylish at all

    not only does the large plaid print make him look wider, the short hem of the pants make him look short. its as if he's a walking cube.
