    When you have legs that skinny, I don’t think you should be wearing shorts that short. But hey, vive la difference! It was a hot summer day and especially in the city, you want to let the breeze in wherever you can. He looks happy and breezy.

    Okay, sorry, but his shorts are too short. “That’s way too much Peter before coffee…”

    Is the woman is the same woman who appeared last month as On The Street……..Fashion Insiders Working Wardrobe, New York? The faces are similar, as are the posture and stance. She/They look lovely either way.

    I *love* that dress! The prints are so pretty and it just looks so light weight and cool. Beautiful!

    Those are very short shorts, suppose the guy has spotted the trend, though he doesn’t look like a trendoid-geeky smile and hair. The girl looks fantastic, she looks like she could float in that dress.

    Not a big fan of the guy’s outfit, seems too scruffy. I do like the yellow overshirt he’s got on, but if he just paired it with something other than shorts and a beater barely fit for sleeping in – perhaps it would work. The girls outfit is very cute and relaxing.

    btw! I love your work. You have found dream job doing something you love and that is incredibly inspiring. We should all be so lucky!

    One of the most interesting things in a flea market are the visitors and their “flea market” attire. Love both of the looks, specially the airiness of the girl:kind of the perfect rich hippie.

    The girl looks great but I think the guy bought his outfit after he got to the flea market.

    I love this dress, the entire look, everything. She and the Tiffany VP win my vote for the male and female dressing with the best-fitting, best-looking outfits that also have a certain whimsy about them.

    the dress is cute, cute, cute and very gipsy-chic.

    i’m not sure if everyone is getting this guys look. i’m a stylist and i can see the work that has gone into it. the slightly uneven turnup, the loose fitting top, the opened shirt,the hair,the bag over the shoulder. i think it is well put together and was meant i would believe to look almost effortless. this guy would not look out of place in shoreditch or hoxton or any high fashion magzine here in the UK

    At first I thought the woman was holding a knife in her right hand, but now I see that she is making some sort of gesture, perhaps shaking her fist.

    I think short shorts for men will not be popular in the U.S. for years to come, as much as the European designers want to feed them down our throats.

    I’ve gotta disagree about a lot of work going into the guy’s outfit. My guess is that he showed up to the flea market in the tank top and shorts and then bought the shirt and just tossed it on.

    I’m not a fan of a bracelet on the same wrist as a watch, especially this particular pairing.

    Her look is very sexy.


    August 16, 2006 at 5:28 pm

    The guy has the type of look that is hard to figure out…his 80′s hair-cut & thin chain/bracelet hints that it definately could of been planned, …on the other hand… he may just be a simple guy who spent the night at his girlfriend’s apartment & is on his way to his job at Tek-serve.

    The girl ABSOLUTELY looks like she planned an outfit, posture & all!

    PS: Skinny legs on men are still pretty happenin’…skinny jeans & such aren’t designed for beefcake. Check out Dior… ;)

    Not sure there was terribly much premeditation by the guy concerning his look (see the post just above this), but the proportions–over-shirt to shorts–and impromptu cuffing are interesting….

    I love both of their looks…so unique. I also love the way they dress as their spirits go. The guy has the perfect smile. That smile & that style…come on…you can’t find a guy like him everywhere… The girl is just as gorgeous as her dress.

    What a dynamic duo. She looks really beautiful, and I love that she was photographed in mid motion. He looks fantastic…reminds me of the way some guy friends use to dress. The smile on him is as happy as apple pie.

    ahaha! the guy just cracks me up =) you know, i admire his bravery for wearing shorts. I think longer would suit better.

    What are some good fashionable flea markets in New York? I’ve been on the lookout for some especially since I have some free time left before a mini-vacation and uni.

    Thanks. ;)

    the low belt makes her look short legged.
    bring back the natural waist.

    They both are well dressed … I agree with a few of the above posts regarding the guy … many just wont get it, but it’s clear he has planned this outfit perfectly … he looks great … & as for the comments about how ‘thin’ he is … like girls, us guys have to be thin to fit the best designers & to make the look work … I mean, a guy that takes a 42″ jacket & has a 34″ waist just aint going to make dior homme work …

    That is exactly the problem with Dior Homme

    Dior Homme is only a problem if you can’t fit the clothes … to make it work you need to be thin ( p.s – my previous post regarding 42″ jacket – I used U.K sizes as opposed to European – I meant 52″ ) …
