It just about works (maybe a scarf with a brown tint could balance it out further but would look oh so much better with black denim jeans. Be interested to know what shoes he paired this ensemble with…
I don’t agree with you : dark blue denim is perfect there, and the coordination with a scarf of the same blue is what makes it particularly work. Black jeans and a brown scarf would make it look common. I love a shirt with the buttons details. http://gare-a-gary.blogspot.fr/
When I heard Mr Schuman speak, he answered a question about exactly this topic. Based on his response, I think that his approach does indeed have a lot to do with the comfort levels and self-presentation of the folks he photographs. (Perhaps he’ll discuss this a bit in his next book?) I enjoy your comments, Sevan–and they do make sense! :)
I am in awe of this shirt. Western details and wooden buttons towards the top of the placket and more couture details towards the bottom. The denim is obviously Japanese given how dark the indigo. I can’t put my finger on who might have made this shirt. I don’t think it is inside out given the sleeve/collar.
Crazy — I hope Scott can clear some of this up for us denim-heads out there.
