    What a delight! His colours, while he certainly didn't put them together with any definite idea in mind, are wonderful……. The green, tan, purple and plaids are delicious, and of course that smile is just the cherry on the top! AND he's just been to Muji, so he's right up my street. I LOVE him. What a happy way to start off 2010. Superb.

    Wow, small world! Scott, I first saw this gentleman at your SF book signing — the bag is unmistakable. Then about a month later (again visiting my sister in SF) I saw him on the street in Pacific Heights neighborhood — albeit the bag first caught my attention, then I realized why it seemed familiar. Now he is here in NYC! I love that he had to stop in at Muji.

    I know this fabulous man. He is Kelvin and he works in the most amazing boutique in San Francisco, M(odern)A(ppealing)C(clothing). He always brings a smile on my face and he's always dapper. We both have the same Dries gold brogues,but I desperately want that bag from Paris. Too bad it was the only one.

    I love that he is so over the top with his accessories yet, loves simplicity- Muji. I wonder what his apartment looks like.
    Shoes are great. Would like his pants a bit shorter to show off the cuff, shoes, and wide leg.

    The color palette here is delightful. Muted, but it doesn't feel dull. That purple with that olive-ochre is marvelous. The crazy scrap scarf really pulls it all together and keeps the matchy-matchy hat and coat from feeling fussy. And those gold shoes! This outfit is full of surprises. :D

    This is the shit right here. I never leave a comment on your blog…but god, I just have to for this one. WONDERFUL!!! it is all about being comfortable in you own skin when style truly takes on a personality all its own. PURPLE!!! YOU GO BOY!!!!! You have to be so sure of who you are to wear the color … but then he blows us away with plaid!!!!! A N D GOLD shoes!!!! OH MY GOD!! LOVE LOVE THE leather bag !!!! The zippers are the industrial element this outfit is craving for…and this man fed the want. The rag doll stitch look is mainly what rocks my world and this gentleman does justice to the Raggedy Anne doll.. or should I say Andy look. I love Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson and I soooo see the beauty in this look as I do in Aminah's art.

    The first thing that I thought of when I looked at this picture was "the sartorialist is photographing the homeless now." Then I scrolled down to the pants and shoes. There's alot going on with this outfit. Not a fan of this picture. But, I love those shoes.

    I knew him in San Francisco, and believe me – he deserves to have his photo taken every day. He is a complete master of color, layering and proportion. A complete inspiration, and even though I'm not in SF anymore – its great to see him here.

    That's right! Kelvin still belongs to SF. And what would we do without this sophisticated, urban treasure that somehow breathes new life into sartorial exploration on a daily basis. The bag, the shoes, the impeccably rich tone to his skin, and the smile. All these traits fall by the wayside once you meet him. As radiant on the inside as he is on the outside. Paris, if I catch you calling him again…
