So sweet. I really like what the boy is wearing, the plaid pants and fitted zip-up are almost polished (an Milanese take on Punk?). The ease with which he holds himself and his perfectly careless (but neat) hair make him quite attractive.
Nice photo! Love the gent’s tartan trousers and brown shoes here. Very well done. There’s a lot to be said for tartan. I recently acquired a pair of tartan trousers in a Black Watch pattern from Orvis. This young gentleman reminds me of a young John Cougar Mellencamp or Michael Hutchence.
you know sart, i don’t know why, but i like this. i like what they’re both wearing, especially the guy’s clothing. of its own the clothing may look less than attractive, but on him, it has an identity, it totally works. on him.
At the risk of seeming like I’m missing something, I think both their outfits are quite ugly. I can’t even take a piece or two from them. Those plaid pants look sort of cheap and nasty, and the girl, well maybe her hair is interesting, but the whole things looks a mess to me Sart. Wonder what caught you here?
For someone whom I respect a lot, I am confused as to how this made it onto your site. I know part of fashion is always the throwback, but 1990′s pseudo grunge fashion is ugly. The boy in this photo looks terrible.
ok mr. sart, when you start hiring graffiti artists to scrawl on walls to match your subjects’ outfits PERFECTLY, you’ve gone too far. truly. i love how the walls and the sidewalk are just as piecy as their outfits. the guy is sooo nineties, i’m surprised more people didn’t point that out. but perhaps being from seattle conditions me to notice.
It’s an amazing photo. Every time I look at it, I get the feeling the two are holding hands, but they’re not. The girl bears a striking resemblance to one of my forty-something co-workers. I think that’s what she must have looked like circa 1988, huge spiral perm and all.
