On The Street…..The Deconstructionist , Soho

Again abut the little details – I love the stylized “work boots” working back to the raw cut grey flannel pants.

Feels like the original Soho artist look

    I do love the raw cut hem mixed with the worn boots, no doubt, but everyone please stop with the tan shoes and grey attire, already!! We get it!!! Please don’t make this what I remember about fashion in 2006!!!

    I think those pants could be easily mistaken for a pair of grey sweats with the bottoms cut.

    I would kill for his boots. Does anyone know anything about them?

    Rarely can the homeless afford to go to the lunetterie, never mind hair styling products and such clothing.

    The pants are reminiscent of a particular artist from the 70s, his name slips my mind though.


    P.S. Happy New Year, Sart and the gang

    Though some details are pleasing, to me, it doesn’t add up. It needs to be pushed further; as is, it has a wear-whatever-came-to-hand quality…

    when i first saw the picture, i thought those gray pants were wool or tweed pants and became super excited at the possibility that someone else digs the dress pants with hoodie look! alas… his hair is still fantastic though.

    Is the frayed edging on the pants intentional? I notice the frays on the Yeager photo below. This fraying reminds me of the Punk look.

    Hmm, I think this guy has what is known as “bed hair”. He looks like he has just crawled out of a sleeping bag on a grate on the corner somewhere, wearing the clothes he’s rummaged out of a rubbish bin outside some rich fellahs house.

    janvangoh, I actually thought they were sweatpants until I got to the bottom of the post… I’m still not totally convinced they were proper trousers, even with the closeup.

    I really dig the raw cut trousers! I’ve thought about doing that. I’m re-inspired now.

    Thanks Sart.

    Happy New Year!

    Homeless?! Huh? Why, because he’s not holding a boutique bag by the little handles?

    I thought they looked like sweats, too, at first. And something about him brings Willy Wonka to mind. Why do I like this?

    The boots are vintage Timberlands, no?

    I feel like this post is the fashion equivalent to that stunt where some guy convinced a bunch of gallery-goers that the fire hydrant was art.

    This guy just looks like someone with old shoes and a pair of old sweatpants he pulled on to run out and buy cigarettes, hoping not to run into his neighbours.

    He looks like someone I’d like to have coffee with. To heck with the pants, the little smile says it all.
