    Interesting look, playful with many colors…. Interesting to find out what shoes he wore that particular day.

    The butterfly effect… on his jacket:)

    Interesting combinations. Beautiful heather tweed jacket. Insects appear to be a silk screen overprint. Curious about the unravelled threads and cut off sleeve. (Literally deconstructed???)
    Nice palette except for backpack… not loving its colour.

    at first glance, I agree! …but I think I see a plaid shirt peeking out from under that jacket, which-if it is- thats just one too much for me:| still more daring than I'll ever be and very cool for that alone.

    Ah, I haven't seen a classic Libertine jacket for awhile. (Makes me regret giving mine away!). He looks like the male version of Dries for fall with the khaki and leopard and bright print of the backpack. Don't often see a man in an animal print (outside of Tarzan movies!).

    he's rocking all the trends.

    cargos, leopard , layered, unfinshed edges, backpack.

    very colourful.
    love the idea of a silkscreened look of black butterflies on a tweed jacket.

    I probably would have walked by him and never noticed his subtle style. Good spot!

  75. JayC

    October 26, 2010 at 11:37 am

    In my view, that's a bit of an overkill- just too many colors and patterns.
    But it does emphasize the worry-free attitude the wearer is going for("got up, got dressed, got out")

    I feel like this is the "Emperor's New Clothes": you post ANYTHING and we gush 'how beautiful'! Really? The jacket looks ripped to me, not "deconstructed". I'm not seeing it.

    Really beautiful except for the backpack.I dont understand why westerners are so affraid of mixing different patterns. I just came back from Africa and it is so common there.they do stunning that a Junia's jacket?

    Great photo. However, the insects on the jacket are a little much and his pants look poorly tailored. I think he would have been just fine with the denim he has on underneath that jacket.

    Love your blog!

    His jacket from LIBERTINE and it meant to be deconstructed..
    He wore a denim jacket underneath the deconstructed jacket too.. Smart mix & match!!!

    SEE! to all of those who i have bantered with about matching, here is a plain example of what is possible without way of uprightly "matching" every piece and color to one another. the mixing of patterns are simply a yes.
