    Maybe it's just me, but I automatically equate black horizontal stripes with parisian chic

    Cool top portion of the outfit, the pants are ill-fitting. I don't like the pants

    ohhh. perhaps this is one too many images of men in stripes for my liking – not interesting. however,the ultra cool 3/4 suit is interesting.

    Beautiful, simple, timeless, classic, with the quirkiness all in the pants. This looks like a beautifully crafted piece of tailoring. Yohji Yamamoto? I'm loving it….

    No beef, but I can't work out if this is a guy or a girl. Anyway regardless, i rather like stripes.

    I'm feeling pleased that I bought myself a similar striped shirt from Marimekko. When Vancouver cools down I can't wait to wear it – maybe with very high heels, as suggested.

    Great photograph. The subject's expression mirrors the simple color palette. However, I am not entirely sold on the androgyny of the look…

    Looks like an escaped prisoner. I am not a fan at all. I can't wait until we get past this whole capri/ankle showing dress pants phase of fashion. It looks like these pants were rolled up and not made this way. Was it raining out?

    I've never been to Paris…but I can only imagine rolling my eyes every time I see someone dressed in a striped shirt like this. It's akin to wearing a beret or something an old caricature of the French would wear. Insert cigarette and neck scarf as well? Stripes are classic everywhere else but Paris it seems. There it's just a parody. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    yeah… someone beat me to it but it's worth repeating. If you have the good fortune of finding yourself in Paris it means that the Gods are smiling favorably upon you. The least you can do to acknowledge your good fortune is to smile.

    Not like this guy though

    Just something in between.

    I love how the obvious combo look unexpectedly fresh on him. The wall has vertical stripes, shirt also but, his hair and silhouette is lithe ,vertical & contrasting element. The facing of the pocket flap being white, also cool.

    I love the stripes. An outfit so classic and effortless will be timeless.

    The glasses? Not so much, I'm all for a modern take on fashion, but I'm not keen on them in the slightest. Each to their own, without individuality, the industry would be nothing..

    Like the stripes but would have preferred a crisp white long sleeve collard shirt. Its hard to pull off black and white stripes.

    he's nothing compared to some of the other "stripes" shots you've posted. but i do like the striped building behind him, which sort of makes the photograph rather fabulous.

    ~stripes have always been classic, . i love the black top that goes on top of it, it silenced the whole street attitude and turn out to be semi formal – with shorts as a twist.

    The concrete wall in the background wears those pre-cast stripes so well.

    I love the juxtaposition of the roughened facade texture compared to the rigid horizontal lines formed by the channels.

    Brilliant on so many levels such as acoustic and aesthetic plus you can use the grooves to conveniently display your ST Dupont lighter or rest your shoe in the event your shoe laces become undone.
