On the Street…. Soho, New York


I love the silk headwrap with the very trad navy blazer(Yohji actually), charcoal pants, and suede shoe combo.

By complete coincidence I saw this same gentleman about 5 hours later at Barneys. He had transformed the silk headwrap into a rakishly tucked-and-puffed pocket square, It seems Bruce Weber has an influence beyond Abercrombie photos.

    Interesting but not inspiring to my tastes. Obviously, he wears it to shield the sun given that he took it off while indoors thus, very functional.

    I hate to sound all culturally ignorant, but could someone please explain to me the Bruce Weber reference?

    Everything I know about him (iconic photography for Calvin Klein, AF, Ralph Lauren) doesn’t clue me in to the pocket square connection.

    I think he looks great. He sort of reminds me of some of the visiting artist and designers when I was in school. The navy, charcoal, w/dark brown suede… classic and elegant. The scarf gives him an exotic edge. Thanks Sarto… seomtimes it’s the simple details that makes it positively eccentric.

    I totally love this. Exotic style choices rooted in practicality are the coolest. It makes it look less like you’re trying to be cool than solving a practical problem in an elegant way.
