dont like the camouflage pants for themselves, but everything fits so well and his gestures! the hat and his jacket are so italian and his gesture ist so typical italian. its lovely. the only ones who can wear a beard in a sophisticated manner are older men, if you care it, it look totally well!!
First time I thought you took stylished person or his/her styles. But now I think you take someone's life or their minutes. I really like your photos. With them I feel like I travel abroad and meet a lot of people!! Anett
Oh, now this is GREAT! Look at those pants!!!! He looks like a total character from ye olde country. Now I'm curious to know what he's talking about. And what he's doing with that …. that …. is it a perfume decanter in his hand? And why is he holding it like a walkie-talkie? And what is around his neck – some kind of ID? So many questions. Would you update with some info?????
I'm confused and intrigued. What's happening? He;s a vendor, but what's in his hand and why is he holding it up to his face in this theatrical gesture? His coat and hat are filthy, but then he's surrounded by all these colorful items. His scarf is especially intriguing to me as are the various pops of saturated red throughout the background. Fascinating.
loved the video you posted a few weeks ago, truly inspiring. the visual life pretty much sums up what it means to be observational. i find that now, there simply isn't time to do that anymore, but its fantastic that there are ppl that keep it an art
Slightly hobo chic, but it's working for him really. I find this a really interesting photo in terms of capturing human nature, the average person. It gives insight and intrigue. It makes you wonder, who is this man? What is is story?
Thanks to the people who explained these pants. They look feminine to me and I was thinking he borrowed them from his wife (who rolled her eyes and shook her head as she watched him head out to his booth).
As many have noted, the pants are German Bundeswehr (Army) pants. The pattern is ususally referred to as "Flecktarn". It has its roots in Germany shortly before WWII. The Germans used three main types of camouflage patterns (actually Flecktarn means simply camouflage patches): pea pattern, leaf pattern and splinter pattern, with endless varieties between them. These trousers have what is called the "pea" pattern.
Those who like to experiment shades and forms can always check out the replica uniforms made for reenactors, where you can find garments using this pattern but with a distinct 40's cut. Just be aware that we're talking the SS here.
Using the old cut but the modern cloth could wield some interesting results…
Could you just imagine a man in the U.S. wearing those floral pants?? So fun! Only in Italy. I remember walking the street markets in Florence. The vendors immediately call out to you guessing at your country of origin. I was so pleased, they all yelled out in french first, then Spanish….I am 100% American. Fun!
