    Awesome black trench in the last photo, especially paired with the silver wrist cuffs.

    These three completely different looks prove just how versatile a trench is. My favorite is Amir, definitely; sharp, but not too.

    Is the first one really a trench-? I see it's burberry, but isn't it more along the lines of a golf jacket/windbreaker?

    So classic. Trench coats really stand the test of time, and again, while a Burberry trench is the rule of gold, you can find an amazing one at Old Navy – you don't need stray much from the original design. That's style.

    Amir pulls off the open toed sandals once again….I thought the rule was "only if your on an island/beach" can someone pls clarify?

    Great looks! It's hard to see trenches in LA, but it's great to see how it can be used in an outfit.

    You have able to show how it´s possible to wear the trench in very different ways, I am amazed.
    Especially I love the last picture. I think you´ve shown pictures of him before, he has got a great style and the way he carries him self. Wow, wow, wow!

    So many style mavens say that a nice white shirt is a pefect look for any guy because it draws attention to and brightens up his face. The middle photo shows that the right white shirt works equally well for women. I like her shirt, the popped collar on the coat, her indigo jeans and the bit of cuff emerging from her coat sleeve. A somewhat smaller or more streamlined belt buckle would be a welcome improvement, though.

    that secret wars t-shirt on the first guy is so sweet! i'm pretty sure you've taken pics of him before, i recognise the lego bling.

    and amir is looking real cool too. he's got real attitude in that photo. i want to get sandals like his…anyone know where i can get those?

    In the second photograph, the trench coat over the blue jeans looks very elegant. Part of the elegance comes from the khaki colour. beautiful photograph with the glowing hair.

    Re the open toed sandals comment earlier: you can do whatever the heck you want if you've attached your long locks geisha-style with a stick.

    Personally, I like the middle photo best. Timeless class.

    Oh Amir, you are the stuff inspiration is made of! This is the 2nd look from him that I am going to try and emulate in its entirety, at least from the neck down (couldn't do the facial hair or the head).

    I love the boys in the top photo. Love the colorful "Lego" accents on the belt and keychain and just the overall
    "early hiphop/ 80's in New York" feel of this shot. Yes, I see that digital Casio. ;-)

    … and I'm starting to develop a little crush on Mr. Toos… oh dear…

    Thanks Sart!

    The 80s kids in the first shot: best use of a Burberry I've seen yet. Combining the jacket and those jeans was inspired.

    This is not the first time I run into Amir's pictures. I also like the one he is wearing shorts with a Lacost polo shirt, flip flops and a lot of silver cuffs. He is one of the most stylish and beautiful man I have seen.

    I really don’t like the girl's style: it’s not for her age and it's too classic (in a bad, boring way)
