I love this look, the layers are perfect and the trench perfectly tones out the contrast of those beautiful pants. I have high respect for anyone who can pull of a look like this with a high level of confidence.
Such a serious look and such soft, playful pants. :o) Whatever is at his waist is distracting and not attractive to me, but I'll bet this outfit looks great when he's on the move…walking, stooping, sitting with legs crossed, etc. The pants look agreeably soft and comfy and go well with the substantial boots. He looked well grounded to me. Bravo for that.
Not only are the pants strange, the whole shape of this outfit is weird. Plus I don't get the flapper thing on his crotch. His boots are cool though! And I have to give him point for uniqueness. I'd rather see people dressed like this, than to see all the little drones out there.
I have often felt this way and often expressed it:
I think many people here would "like" anything you do. It makes no difference what, if you do it they feel there must be something "fashionable" about it, even if they are missing what it is.
This sort of thing makes me question the actual point of this blog… not in a negative way really and certainly I don't mean I'm considering NOT coming back. No, I love the photos but what is the point here? Is it to show me good, interesting fashion? Or just interesting fashion? Or street life around the world?
Well need I say, for me this is a no. PJ's with flowers or pumpkins on them really should just never be worn by a man but certainly not in public.
What irritating comments! I dread to imagine what the world would look like if people allowed themselves to be dictated by any of these "standards"!
While I personally would not have worn this outfit (though I love the pants and the boots), I think this man reminds us that fashion is never what you wear, but how you wear it. In my opinion, there is no such thing as "unfashionable", because the concept of what is fashionable is constantly changing over time. If there is anything, it would be a lack of style, an ambivalence to oneself, a condition that this man clearly does NOT have.
Jesse Z always did his own thing at Vassar. He really tried to experiment and be creative. I promise you he wasn't hoping scott would find him, nor was he trying to become a spectacle like some have suggested.
Even if you don't like the outfit there is something to be appreciated in his operating in both the mainstream and margins of fashion. That is style.
