    She looks good. He looks…ridiculous with shorts and tights and work boots! Ruins the look of the sweater under the leather (?) car coat.

      everything on the upper body looks great on him — though the lower body looks like he is trying too hard to be different.

    I love, love, love their attitude! They are most definitely sporting the best of the eighties, yes? The black and white is a good touch, for sure.

    Love her shoes and his sweater. The shorts are a total joke tho.

  50. cociolph

    April 1, 2010 at 11:36 pm

    Above the waist is very nice. His tights and her pants are a mistake, and her shoes have an icky foot-binding vibe – I think it comes from the short distance between toe and heel and the very low sole.

    With all due respect, I'm sorry, CW, but I'm inclined to disagree with you.

    He pulls this ensemble off with such flair and confidence that any missteps he might have made (I see none, as the case may be – he looks incredibly chic, in a nontraditional way) should be forgiven. The proportions are correct, the layering is genius, the various shades and textures of black all work together, and even the 30's/40's American Industrial-style boots (they really evoke images of a chimney sweep or a factory worker for me) seem to work in harmony with the rest of the pieces. His slick, almost seductive grin is a perfect finishing touch.
    His partner's ensemble is simply flawless, IMO. From the effortless drape of her scarf, to the chic layering (read: single-button blazer under leather & fur bomber), and her pleated pant. The pump is marvelously elegant – detailed, yet simple. Her frame and even the cut of her hair tie it all together.

    Scott, the idea to capture the both of them in black & white (and slightly off center – was this intentional???) is brilliant. It makes the image all the more striking.

    They are a beautiful couple.

    I think his upper half looks good, but his lower attire makes his legs look spindly. He looks like he's borrowed some other man's legs.

    Maybe I'm old, but I don't see why anyone would want to wear her shoes. They look totally uncomfortable to me. Yes, getting old! :)

    These two look like they are ready to open a can of asskick on some unsuspecting bystander. But really, tough look. Man's look is very courageous. I would've opted for black jeans personally.

    the coolest couple in new york. I love that their style is truly their own, not appropriating for another group, not the lastest trend and yet is there anyone who not admire then. love that he is rocking the shorts, leggings and boots. He is cool and in control and she is his equal in every way.
