The shirt looks like a mixture of a bootleg canvas from Paul Klee, and a piece of wardrobe left over from the bad 80s film The Serpent and the Rainbow…and the glasses look like vintage George Costanza.
Not sure if this guy is trying to be Steampunk meets Guns and Roses, or a member of the Village People who has mated with a Williamsburg bouncer, but, I’m definitely not going to be rocking this look anytime soon.
He’s a good character to photograph Scott, but not a source of fashion inspiration.
Is it the shirt you like, or the context that the shirt is in? I can easily imagine this shirt on an overweight man in his 60s who is also wearing khakis and just arrived back from his trip to the US Virgin Islands…not as enchanting in that scenario.
Sorry to be the party popper but I don’t like this look – too much going on for me, and none of it seems to go together. The beard, the glasses, the shirt, the tats, the jewellery, the baggy trousers – there seems to be no unifying factor. Maybe you don’t need one, but it just doesn’t gel for me. I do like the way his hair is combed back though – he has a beautiful widow’s peak.
Shirt would be cool sans button-down collar, but the glasses have GOT to go. And I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m unimpressed by ink and growing weary of “sleeves.” Rad has become fad. These days, I think having no ink says more about a person than having ink. The NYTimes David Brooks said it all back when he wrote “Nonconformity Is Skin Deep” (2006) http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/27/opinion/27brooks.html?_r=0
I usually dislike any kind of tattoo, but this extremely decorative ethnic looking tattoo alongside the heritage Indonesian design rendered in batik cloth is fantastic.
It is as if someone from a lost civilization appeared and tried to blend in walking along the streets of Florence !
That is indeed a fine shirt!
I’d go with slightly smaller, silver-framed glasses here (and the trousers’ proportions seem a bit off in combination with the shirt). But on the whole this is one of those summer looks that’s both sharp and (literally) cool-looking.
