He is such a character – or caricature! From his flyaway hair, to his tie sticking out below the sweater, to the rolled up pants! The effect of his light colored suit against the bright blue and red sign, with the background washed out, is very nice.
The creepers are such a great little thing aren't they? I agree, that man lives in a world of his own, i just think how would another person would look with that same outfit, put that in the body of a model (sans the creepers) and you'd get a killer look.
The madras of the tie and the heavy fabric of the vest make a great juxtaposition, and the vest anchors the solid suit and the colorful tie. I would never try this outfit myself, but I think it is brilliant! Jorge from WPB
This is one of my favorite of all your shots. This imperious little man has great style made more interesting, I think, by his incongruous head. Where do you think he's rushing off to? What's in the book? What's he all worked up about? What a great image.
If you look at the last few shots the older people are so interesting, genuine and authentic. Can't wait to get there, they inspire. At the same time are pictures of those just starting their journey. Now I'm going to go find out who Mr. Pinkwistle is.
I want this entire outfit and along with it to spend a day with this gent. Is he a designer? at the very least he has an excellent tailor. I love that he is doing all the things that us shorter fellow are told not to do: cuffed pants high waist short square vests colours that break up the line of the body
and yet he stand far taller and will gather far more compliments than the tallest man.
Mr.Pinkwhistle is a little ''brownie'' a term used by his creator – authour Enid Blyton for a grop of magical people. Mr.Pinkwhistle was depicted in the old drawings as a little man with pointy ears and short trousers and fantastic shoes…
he was a benign creature who often helped good little children or taught naughty ones a lesson. The adventures of Mr.Pinkwhistle was one of the first books i bought from a second hand bookshop with my dad in england. as a little girl, he always used to scare me a bit though, going round peeping into children's windows….
Godthose Italians can dress…even,as i imagine this guy to have done, just grabbing the fist thing and throwing it on…and yes maybe this is why their look is so,well,non-look.every single person has their own style and this is what appeals to me about the Italiani.
I can say truly and honestly, that after looking at your images I have started noticing details in mensnfashion on the streets on London… Im talking about not british, but complete foreigners.. on these occasions I wish I had my camera with me, and sometimes I wish I had more guts to come over and ask to take their picture.. – because most times it happens when Im travelling on the tube…
I would be forgiven for thinking he didn't care too much about fashion, for fashions sake.. While, his checked tie belies a sardonic sense of humor.. I think he knows where he's going! – p.s. nice, city-chic pic of mature folk. We are one.
