    I’m liking the androgynous vibe. I’ve run into it a lot lately, and it just adds mystery and spice to life

    Interesting…The avant garde monk look perhaps? The woman on the picture can definitely ware this outfit, but not my favorite.

    Nice bone structure tough…

    That's more like it, who needs spray-tanned 'Miami-casual', when ash faced & clothed urbanites are around to set the tone…

    I like…

    Call me a prude (or a prune), but I’m sorry, for me the cigarette in the photo utterly sabotages the image.

    Very androgynous! I’m guessing a boy, but it doesn’t matter. I love the style, and the hair cut is pretty great!

    This is so very nice. 1970s history professor garb revisited, feminized, and thus improved!

    i think people might best articulate the complement – compliment by saying FIERCE!

    however, sHE is not because the shoes are a bit um, overcooked. However, points for making the best of the situation!

    one snap.

    I want to say “fierce” without it being a camp type moment–she/he(?) really does look extremely tough.

    I don’t think the look would be what it is w/o the attitude.

    I thought that HE was a SHE with huge feet…I get the appeal though. I can so see him blending in the woods on a dusky dawn, lithe gray ghost drawing a bow and arrow against the invaders of their sylvan realm…Sigh. I’d love to see the rest of those pants.

    Mod or rocker I don’t know. My first impression was Sting from Quadrophenia.

    I dislike the androgynous monk look intensely. It doesn’t do anything for anybody’s any body.

    Wow, this guy/gal ? has a wonderful ‘don’t mess with me ‘tude’

    Can’t help but think, this looks like an 80′s Parnass/Pelly Parachute coat.

    Nonetheless, a wonderful shot!

    lovely androgynous look, very beautiful indeed! I find it appealing that you show gender-blending people quite often! world has never been black and white, and these stylish examples encourage people to see the beauty of extraordinary.

    Very androgynous. He looks a bit like Bowie in “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” I am not digging his shoes though. A bit limp considering his substantial coat.
    Great shot though, Sart.
