..i think his look in the eyes is kinda nice – but i can image him really good in a white tshirt and very used jeans..i somehow do not like this style..too much of used brown! http://www.modeschwestern.tumblr.com
His look reminds me of the Syrian peasants walking down the city streets of Aleppo in Syria.
This picture calls to my mind a conversation between my brother and I once in Munich Airport summer of 2009 looking at a French store mannequins and speaking about my trip to France. He looked at me and said, "Well, don't go all French and come back wearing those peasant-style baggy pants declaring it to be fashionable!"
It wouldn't be fair to agree with him now looking at the picture, but it's funny how there's this comic truth I find in his words from this picture of a Young Parisian. I cannot help but think of it more like a comic relief.
There's no air of chic about him, but his confidence altogether in going out in the streets looking like that inspires this sense of individuality.
These colors are so Paris – it is city-camouflage! I like the combo of practicality (or comfort) and poetic sensuality as showcased in the details, particularly the patterns of scarf, sweater and trousers. Also, the corners of that linen bag and then the points of the shoes.
I'm assuming he is about to get onto a bicycle or just got off of one and has been shopping. We must not be too quick to judge. I like his look and he is quite handsome. Very nice use of color and texture. Time for a pint?
Once again, fashion following necessity. Pants are tucked into socks so they don't get caught in the chains when riding a bicycle. Amazing how a form of art follows a constantly changing collection of necessary necessities! Bravo humanity!
The colors and textures are well done but the look is not balanced. His top and bottom are disproportionate…he has broad shoulders that end in a point at his feet. The look would have worked better had he kept the pants out of the socks (yikes!) and worn heftier shoes – in my humble opinion ;)
A houndstooth? (I can't see the detail that well) scarf mixed with canvas open-toed keds topped with trousers tucked into relatively high socks… Now THAT's what I call a good outfit. : ) One of the best yet!
sorry folks, the emperor has no clothes … well at least the emperor's clothes are TUCKED INTO HIS PANTS!! if he's two strides from hopping aboard his trusty steed, er, Schwinn, then he's got a pass from me (but, then only for the right pant leg!).
agreed that the rest of him is quite the stylish rake. -Jg.
I just love this look. Probably because this is exactly the way I dress (not purposely ;) to impress – especially in the fall.. it's really comfy, you drown in your clothes and it is something else. Living in Vienna I do see some quite bold fashion choices, but a look like this one stands out!
