    I’m loving all the man-jewelry you’re showing us at the moment. Very tempted to ditch my usual delicate gold pieces for some big chains, random pieces of fabrics…etc.

      primitive chic=hot! :)

        Why “primitive”-chic? Curious as to why you chose the words you did.
        On another note, this screams ARTIST to me!

          I might offer an explanation as to the primitive, as that’s one of the words that came to my mind when I saw the picture. The outfit, the hair that everyone praises (it looks like an out opf control jellyfish or piovra octopus) and that most ‘intriguing’ chain around the neck hardly suggest ‘civilized’ as an epithet.

            I agree. The chain around his neck definitely gives a primitive or at least a “city primitive” effect. Plus the torn edge of the t shirt.

    a big difference between the environment and Florentine shot. definitely post grunge style affects how the hairstyle … original, of course …

    He reminds me of Lenny Kravitz circa late 80s – early 90s; the last Afro-Bohemian, first neo-Afro-Bohemian.

      He is wearing a t shirt and jeans. Does that seem difficult to you? Maybe try a little harder to sound like you know something.

    love this shot- its so natural. His hair is gorgeous. tied up in that scarf. Was he tapping the cigarette as you were taking to photo? Love how the smoke disappears in the middle them ascends at the top top near his shoulders. Love the necklace.

    Be better with a book in his hand instead of a smoke.

    I love the movement of the cigarette smoke around his neck and up toward his dreads. Beautifully captured. A halo of incense.

  27. Giorgia

    September 3, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    wonderful hair!!!! … and his wonderful …
    congratulations to mom, dad and him for the style!!!!!!

    The expressions of the men in the vintage photo below this one suggest they have just seen the guy in this photo.

    I’m sure it’s just not cigarettes that he’s smoking- he’s got to be in a band or artistic in some other way

    There is a delightful minimalist/drapey quality to this man’s style. (But I am rather surprised by the cig. I know, we have been down that road before, so enough said on that issue.) My question is, might the Chanel rule might apply here? Otherwise, let’s hear it for authentic boho grunge.

  33. Klassik

    Awesome. And I just so happen to own the same shirt.

    This is what I like about this site : never a dull moment !
    Yesterday I was admiring the two very stylish, classic gentlemen and today….a futuristic jump !
    I’m very impressed by the hair.

    Rare mix of extremely sexy and still kind-looking. Love everything, even the cigarette (and I usually don’t)

    What a leap from yesterday’s picture of the two stylish and elegant gentlemen to today’s “back to reality” shot. (I like the hair.)
    This is what’s intriguing about this site. Never a dull moment !

    Beautiful composition, beautiful man…but he is sortta rocking the Afro-boho-grung-ster look a little too deliberately.

  55. Rebecca

    September 3, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    This guy is just so cool-looking. It’s effortless and stylish, yet still slightly eccentric and totally masculine. And the composition is lovely as well.

  56. Theresa

    September 3, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    This is such a stunning shot. He’s incredibly handsome. I love the composition of the photo.

    The hair, the chain, the lighter, the cigarette and the hibiscus flower. The stains on his shirt and jeans. And the smoke. Arrrgh! I wish the shot were taken just a few minutes earlier! He looks like being on his smoking break.

    Can tattered clothes be called fashion as well? l wonder what is real happening in the fashion industry. I guess it is like they say fashion is all about twisting your ideas to fit whatever you want, it is also all about creativity.

  66. Vicki Fields

    September 4, 2012 at 1:30 am

    I like his composition and honestly this guy has got swag, he should consider a career in modelling and fashion because he has got all it takes to be a star.

  67. Ty Walter

    September 4, 2012 at 1:43 am

    Wow! That hairstyle is really hot! I love it, looks so cute and taken good care of. Just fits him and I like the body posture, so strong and shows individuality!

    Outstanding photo capturing incidental style envied by all who try to actually dress in the morning. The chain, as simple as it is ….well it is the focal point. Wonderful ……

  79. Stefan

    September 4, 2012 at 9:54 am

    Why is it difficult for some people to dress modestly? He could use some grooming use. A good fitting suit would allow him much better. Or should I say all this not because it is not friendly? It is the truth.

      I have the same type of hair as yours. Not too straight but not too frizzy. My dreadlocks look exactly the same as yours (ends and everything) We look almost exactly the same (except that I am 10-15 lbs heavier) and we I looked at the name of the photo, I realized we have the same name

    Often when I walk down the streets of a bit city I become visually greedy. The need to turn my head when an interesting pallet of colors flashes by or just a detail on someone’s outfit catches my attention is irresistible. It’s like candy. Defenitely in a city like New York!
    I love fashion but I don’t like it as a ‘what’s in fashion’ kind of thing but I like it as a form of art to express your personality.
    With blogs you have the time to really analyse an outfit. On the street its just ‘the whole’ that will or will not make me turn my head and catch a blink.
    I feel sorry that so many blogs are copies of each other these days and even the street style blogs all shoot people who wear the latest blog-trends.. We are 2012 and we finally have this platform to speak up and acutally get a voice doesn’t matter where you live, or where you’re from. You can be totally anonymous if you’d like and still be heard.
    But everybody just plays copycat.
    This person on the other hand has such a personal style. I absolutely love this about your blog, you shoot people with personal style and not people dressed according to the latstest trends. Other street style blogs shoot fashion people, you shoot artists.
    You’re the first blog I’ve discovered and still my favorite!!

    The hair is beyond awesome! I find it difficult to believe some of the commenters thought this guy “worked” his look too hard. The hair took some time to grow, and the shirt and jeans took quite awhile to achieve their slouch and patina. His look is his own.
