Woa! Every detail is so right: from head to toe, literary! The haircut and the shave, the white chrispy shirt and the shorts, the black socks and the withe not very strict shoes!!! I like it very much. Elegant and sporty and free… P.S. – well, the sigarette might go…
Wow. Fair play for courage. I can't say I'm crazy about it, but I think that may be because it reminds me of Elizabethan mens' wear (the silhouette of the 'shorts'), and that era just doesn't sit comfortably with me.
Loved the look as I scrolled down, especially his hair and crisp shirt. But I got to the shorts and just lost interest. Something tells me this will be a look that people either love or loathe…no middle ground. I was so hoping to see narrow trousers, maybe even cropped a bit, but not those wide shorts.
i hate almots everything about this one. from the super camp haircut and shave to the attitude. From the buttoned up shirt to the skirt (everyone seems to think these are shorts, i just see a skirt), to the cigarette, the shaved legs and those stupid shoes. He looks like a total ass.
Loathe. Totally "stumptastic" (love that!) but it's the combination of uptight collar button with bare legs that I hate. It's like it's business up top, casual at the bottom. So of the moment I missed it (but I'm not sorry).
Yep, I think he's great. Glad that some men push the boundaries–not that it's pushed very far here–classic black and white, standard nice shirt, shorts, wayfarers–that's all very mainstream.
The only push I see is the width and cut of the shorts–but this could be the angle of the photo. I am sure some of the old African safari movies from maybe the 40s/50s? had men wearing very wide skirt-like safari shorts.
Shaved/waxed legs and bodies are the go these days with many boys in school here in Sydney–it doesn't seem new or strange anymore. It depends on what look you're trying to achieve or what look your "born with".
The only thing I'd throw out is the siggy–for such a refined crisp look the smell would not work.
The epitome of the modern French dandy! The shorts are a big surprise for the eyes. After that crisp white shirt the viewer expects trousers, not shorts. Excellent element of surprise! That is what fashion is all about;)
hi from Italy just when the picture is loading in parts starting from the down it seems lik a girl picture, with the legs that didn't show any fuzziness that can be seen. Then othe half upper image it is a boy as usual. So i guess it is a picture 50% woman and 50% man: personally i does not know many men that shave their legs. Overall a hurting image done with majestic touch!
lol … I showed this photo to a friend and said What do you think ? He said why is he wearing an apron ? lol .. Those shorts just don't cut it . I have now decided I am not loving the little white shoes either.
i like this look, but if the shorts were maybe chino shorts the look would be better. i have looked for crisp white shirts everywhere with no luck. dont get me wrong i have found some, but i feel as if i get the schoolboy look instead of classic and chic. anyone haves any suggestins of where he got that? thanks
It doesn't work for me. It's to much of a hard work. He spent to much time creating his style and it doesn't look natural. I love the black and white, but the serious face is to hard for me, as well as the realy too graphic outfit. It's certainly different (though I see a few other men with the same kind of style at the moment in Paris), but I don't like the attitude.
Yet, I understand that you chose to make a picture of him as he definitly stands out.
Above the waist: yes. Below the knees: yes. I'm not sure what I think about the introduction of this baggy-short thing. It's apparently coming into high fashion, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the best idea anyone has ever come up with.
Wish he were wearing a utilikilt an inch or two longer than those shorts… but I love the way he's playing the severe (hair, shirt, black-and-white) off the silly (goofy shoes and socks, defuzzed calves).
I've been reflecting on the presence of people smoking in your pictures for a while, only now do I feel like commenting, as I find it really bothersome. It's not the fact that people are smoking that bothers me, but rather that it contributes to the never ending idea that smoking equals being stylish. Somehow the pictures tend to portray the cigarette as a fashion accessory, as if it were a hat or a scarf, and it's kind of twisted. Showing someone smoking in a movie is very different from portraying someone smoking in a fashion magazine or on a blog like yours.
I'm well aware that the people you meet on the street have a life of their own and do what they please, and that you choose to depict them as they are, but by showing them holding a cigarette while describing their amazing style, I feel like it conveys the wrong message.
The fact is that smoking isn't cool and whether you like it or not, what you show your readers has an effect on how they act live their lives.
Ditto with "anonymous said"– this is a silly outfit and the haircut is ridiculous, I would never take someone seriously with a beret hair style. So tired of people that compensate with a "look at me" getup in place of a real fashion sense
Wow, way out there! Bombay britches, got to love them. He is very 80's, a continuing theme for months now. Either this, or my head has been in the proverbial sand and we have been revisiting the 80's for the past three seasons. Even though monochromatic is MY THING I think this guy is a bit too extreme. He is too pale to be wearing such a starkly white shirt and the same with the britches. He needs a bit of color somewhere. The whole thing is pale instead of crisp which is probably what he was going for.
I say, The emphasis of a barber school's education is to teach the essentials of providing hair and skin services for men. They often learn to perform razor styling, hair cutting and coloring, blow drying, foam shaves, steam facials, and facial massages. Using a good hair salon is key to great hair care. But how do you select the right hair salon from the many choices available? You can do to guarantee that you always receive the best hair cuts, latest professional techniques and stellar service is to choose the right hair salon. Granted, that is easier said than done. With hair salons on practically every street corner, narrowing down your options to find the right salon can be confusing. http://kisnersbarbersalon.com
I notice that you do take photos with smokers, in the act of smoking. It's true that there is an understood element of glamour or je ne sais pas about a cigarette, perhaps, I think because of the way it makes the hand contort, or force the forearm or arm into a pose, but surely we can learn to see a smokeless world?
I think here it detracts from the purity of form. Pity, because the pleated short and perfectly parted hair is such a striking force in this pic.
