..This is why i love this blog. I prefer looking people like this with surprising characteristics and unique atmosphere/style a lot more than some 'style icon' a non-newyorker like me can't even recognise
It's all in the attitude. I think he is more elegant than Anna. It's proof that it's not fancy or expensive clothes that make a style. It's the caracter, the way things are worn, the attitude. Perfect.
Like the janitor girl with the dreadlocks – you can individualize any uniform and stand out at work. Pretty slick & stylized for coveralls with the zippers, and slim fit. Nicely rolled up sleeves, nerd chic glasses, and lightweight runners eliminate the grubby mechanic look and make him into a moto-tech.
I love jumpsuits. I thought Jeff Bridges look really sexy in that part of The Big Lebowsky where he wears a white one. They work very well on stout people. I know a woman pretty big who wears jumpsuits all the time: she looks stunning.
the most amazing thing about this photo was actually finding a gas station/car repair on Manhattan! I think this may be the only one (south of 90th). Great style too, but that's what our New York types are known for!
Interesting photo of a mechanic. I see nothing especially stylish in the overalls – I happen to have seen my mechanic in more interesting Alfa Romeo branded overalls (in Woodbridge ON), since he works and loves this marque. Nd I happen to own some as well, which I use for motorcycling on windy days. However, what is much more interesting is how the lemmings start outpouring poetic expressions of style and taste and personal 'je ne sais quoi', which at first are a little quaint, only to become annyoing. I've noticed this in many threads. Some pictures depict absolute beauty, like the lady in the hat, and a few others; but other pictures seem to me like Scott is having fun with us, just to see how accurate his predicted count of lemmings' comments was. So, this picture ultimately, is a good psychological device.
a skinny guy with a cigarette passing for style. uninspired, indulgent, and completely detached from reality. i love the idea of shooting a mechanic, but this is the sort of photo that inspired the scathing, spot-on and hilarious "derelicte" satire in Zoolander.
Some of these people look pretty unrealistic, like you would never see them in everyday life. Others look fashionable but commonplace. I enjoyed the blog. Here's mine: http://ihavetopeenow.blogspot.com/
