    This reminds me a lot of Taiwan when I was at the Gaultier store (or a store that sold Gaultier) and a guy walked in with very wide-legged pants. It has a zen quality to it that is both provocative and relaxed.

    I bet its really comfortable. Think about it.. A guy totally free falling in a skirt…he’s brilliant..

    Old style is New style. In New York and all over the world, but in New York for sure. I like !

    Old style can be new style. In New York, it’s the best place ! I like !

    I really like the radical layering notion along with the pattern play in the first picture.
    Reminds me of the silhouette u get when tying your sweatshirt around your waist,
    without too much interference from bulky sleeves.

    this comment is for V:

    many people wear converse and skirts, but some people just look better than others. It’s all about attitudes and how you wear.

    This look is amazing!

    I bought the multicolored fabric he has wrapped around his waist for tablecloths for an event at our dog park. LOVE that fabric !

    Hi, my name is Ryo Miyamoto, the person in the pictures.
    It is my honor to be in the Sartorialist.
    He is the reason why I started my own street-style blog, OTOMAYIM B DIPPER in New York City.

    Please take a look whenever you have a second.

    Thanks again Mr.Schuman!

    1st look – not keen on the ass bib. Pretty fabric, though.

    2nd look – not sure about the culottes. But he’s got style, though.

    Sometimes I wonder just who the folks are who appear in “The
    Sartorialist.” What they do, believe, etc. This is one of those times. And this is not meant as a negative comment.

    I love idea of skirt!

    I don’t like these looks…

    October 8, 2011 at 1:58 am

    Now that is a man who knows his style, owns it, and works it. Ergo, he looks both smashing and very at home in his own skin.

  36. rine

    October 8, 2011 at 2:47 am

    Very distinctive, in a good way; I also think it’s more about shapes, proportions than colors, that’s where his strong point is.., that’s what should single him out in a mixed crowd..I wonder why he needs that notebook…on the streets..

  37. dontbekhoi

    October 8, 2011 at 3:09 am

    The first look is cute, love everything about it :)
    Not so keen on the second look, he’s dressed like a Thai schoolgirl uniform.

  38. dontbekhoi

    October 8, 2011 at 3:17 am

    Like the layering and glasses of the first pic..
    Not too keen on the Thai school girl uniform ensemble in the second though :)

    i LOVE THE first look!! The prints so nice!!

    I love this! Looks like something Rei Kawakubo would do for Comme des Garçons.

    I love the mixture! It results in a very unique style!

  44. Bernadette

    October 8, 2011 at 7:14 am

    Hooley dooley! Working that look. I don’t know if the spotted item is a bag, or ?? but I love it. The hairy legs peaking out from the long skirt worn with all stars and no socks makes me think of nuns on holidays (but in a good way). Go man, go!

    Sorry no maxi skirts for men; just doesn’t work.

    The first picture, I happened to draw the pattern on the skirt (ikea), I’m so honoured, you made my day!


    October 8, 2011 at 8:58 am

    very very very grunge attitude!

    He is my dear friend Ryo Miyamoto! He took picture of me for his own street-style blog! He is a cool guy:)

    October 8, 2011 at 9:04 am

    I’m not sure that being dressed in a ridiculous way is”beind advanced” or belonging to some kind of avant-garde.
    Weirdness is not sophistication.

    would like to have seen better examples. these seem to be sloppy. then again maybe it’s just that dirty shoes ruin the look.

    October 8, 2011 at 10:48 am

    this guy looks great! i too would love a little back ground info on the people that feature here..a sort of mini profile would really build the picture..but i know scott youre a busy man!!

    Digging that first photo – polka dots are my kryptonite.

    Also: serious points for being able to pull off the look!

    Putting so much effort to looking cool makes one look totally the opposite. Colours are interesting though!

    October 8, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    There is a thin line between style and ridicule. I get the alternative perspective and the desperate need to be different but this is a little bit too desperate for me. Yet he caught your attention, so something must be right hear. I just don’t see it.

  64. Fording

    October 8, 2011 at 2:27 pm

    amazing silhouette, cool guy, combination of patterns is inspiring, great shots.

    It’s not boring, and it doesn’t fall into any prescribed category of existing douchery, so it passes. Plus, he looks comfortable.

    oooh….I recognize the Ikea fabric in the first photo. i love that fabric. made a yoga bag out of it. so fab!

    ryo, you rokk!
    i love your daring, your sense of style and thinking outside of the box.
    it takes a fashion vanguard to wear what you wear.
    rokk on!

    What is that around his hips on the first photo? An apron?

    Plenty of effort, no style.

    Anywho, Scott, thoroughly enjoyed seeing the shows and surroundings through your discerning lens.

    My dear sartorialist. No doubt your photography makes pictures look great. But this “advanced style” you are talking about is disastrous to say the least. If it is not something you will wear, don’t call it “advanced style”. Call it “different” or “weird”.

  75. Theresa

    October 9, 2011 at 12:00 am

    This guy is way cool.


  76. Emily

    October 9, 2011 at 12:05 am

    How is this attractive for a man? This (both) photos look ridiculous. As a woman I find it very unattractive for a man to be dressed like he’s wearing a smock from my third grade art class.

  77. S.

    October 9, 2011 at 12:44 am

    These super wide pants/shorts are fantastic! Kenzo showed a balloon pant similar to these for S/Su 2012.

  78. Thien

    October 9, 2011 at 1:12 am

    Love polka dots, I wish more people would wear it.

    As for the bulky blue skirt, the idea I don’t have much a problem with but it looks like a badly proportioned nun’s skirt to be frank. A Japanese yukata bottom, not quite – something else and I can’t say I like it personally.

    Big ups to the guy for doing his thing though!

    A bit try-hard for my taste. I do love the black and white shirt in the top photo, though. I just don’t like the outfits that he has assembled.

  83. Incognito

    October 9, 2011 at 7:47 am

    The second photo reminds me of japanese high school uniform, don’t know why. I prefer the first look because he put more details on his total black look.

    I like the first look but not the second. I’d be amused if I saw looks like this on the street but I don’t think I could handle such sloppy style around me. The first look is different and appreciated but I don’t think the sloppiness of the second one translates into advanced style. I’d personally call advanced style the shoes on the LV runway this season, but I guess to each their own.

  103. Danae

    October 10, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    @ a.m.cunningham

    because if you live in NYC and you want to work in fashion you do need to be different/unique, otherwise no one will pay attention. Generally, this is a good thing, this is where all the creativity comes from. Imho thought, this is not the case here. It is simply too much.

    Have to admit though, I have never seen a desperate need to conform in fashion bloggers, stylists etc that do have an audience

  104. Marina

    October 10, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    I know him, I know him!!! I´m from Madrid but during my time in NY I saw him entering in a class at the FIT… the teacher was his boss and he talked about his style.

    Wow! The first pic really grabbed me! That print poking out from under the polka dots – AMAZING!

    The second shot looks a little like how the cholos dress in LA….

  110. Charlotte

    October 12, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    The second shot reminds me of when kilts were in for men on the runway. I love the look of both, and especially the splash of color in the first picture

    I am in love with Converse. Almost a century old but still eternally in style. High fashion or low fashion. I really love the way this guys rocks them in the first look. Here’s my ode to the classic Converse:

    Wow, the ignorance.

    That’s now a skirt he’s wearing, in fact, what he’s wearing is a modified Hakama (Kendo type pants,) but a shorter version. If he’s a fashion designer, his concept is done very well, although, I’d personally not wear such a thing, but it looks good on him. The first pants however are very cool!

  116. W Gray

    February 10, 2012 at 1:10 am

    I’m quite impressed by the first outfit. It may just be that I’m a sartorial newbie, but I always feel inspired by someone who can confidently pull off a look I’d still be embarrassed to even put together in my mind. I would’ve never thought about a polka dot shirt before. Now…
