Wonder Where Designers Get Their Inspiration?

When I first saw this guy I thought of Comme Des Garcons but I guess Miuccia Prada was right behind me.

    See the shorter jacket over the suit jacket.
    That is what I mean.
    Designers are often inspired by very small details.

    LOL! That’s just some guy who can’t afford a warm longer coat!! And the pants rolled up? Is that also some sort of fashionable detail??
    This is hilarious!

    Are you saying someone could not be inspired by that?


    The idea of necessity is the mother of invention.

    I think I get it: Go to Goodwill or the salvation army thrift shop, buy something at least 3 sizes to small, have a good cleaning establishnemt do a cleaning and put a sharp press on it. Have long hair and short sides, put a pout on your face and viola, you look like these guys BUT… ya still have your $2000 in your pocket!!!

    You hit the head right on the nail,
    Sartorialist. The older gent is a trendsetter.

    Bold use of contrasting color and texture with the blue nylon jacket.

    Burburry was obviously inspired by the wool cap, but were not as bold with color.

    The turnip cuffs give his ensemble
    a relaxed feel. He makes it look

    His bearing also has a certain
    “Je ne sais” those runway models just can’t match.

    woe to us during these unironic times when it is considered shameful and inappropriate to find inspiration and vigor of design in those who are “supposed” to be pitied.
