    Where are her hands and feet? To me, everything is just too loose in that look.

    Delisa,above, makes a good point. John And Yoko in an essence.

    But overall I love the quality of both of what they are wearing. There is something about them that you cant stop looking at. Individuality.

    Like an earlier comment said, they look like a modern version of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Is it me or the sunglasses she is wearing the same as the ones worn by the lady in the furry coat, in the Rue Auber photo posted on March 4? …I love those sunglasses. If any one knows what they are, please post so I can track them down!

    He looks great. She looks like she is wearing someone else's clothes. That overly long pant length that is all the trend right now has never looked good. It makes people look short and sloppy. Especially since many who wear them this way end up walking on them, and/or dragging the pants on the ground.

    Funny Scott,

    When I was a kid and someone said grad students these two are what they looked like and what I imagined. My father was a university professor in the late 60s, through the 70s and the early 80s. The students I used to see around him reflected this buoyancy and older student mode of cool, calm and relaxed. It was all I ever wanted to be and be about. There seemed to be so much expression and 'verge of creativity' about the whole deal. Jeans reigned supreme in a different way from today, they and hair still held a significance as a symbol of rebellion. Vietnam was a daily factor in many lives, and definitely for my family, as were the protests and politics of the day. The bell bottoms and the coats, the cut of the jeans, those shiny boots all bring so much of it back vividly. I am not sure if I have written a thousand words about this photograph but going with the adage, about the value of a picture, you have inspired a thousand and more, memories, reflections, style observations and politics of a day and time not all that long ago.

    Thanks man.

    Love the simplicity and chicness of this. The rugged mixed with the classic is great on him and her outfit looks like the epitome of comfortable and classic.

    Great couple, but… I'd have prefered her with a little shorter trousers: where are the shoes?

    These two look right out of the late 60's/70's. They could be golden age rock heroes, I love it.

    sweet lord, when will this ridiculous hobbit fashion trend for men end already? i am so sick and tired of the too short sleeves and pants. it makes everyone look short and stout.

    also, are we allowed to make negative comments here? it seems to be all "fabulous!" and "magnificent!" even at the most ridiculous outfits.

    I love the time-machine quality of the photo… the looks are wonderfully retro, but there's also something about the light and focus of the photo itself that makes me think of old album covers. And there's something about him that makes me want to strike up a conversation with him.

    Best of all, they look like "everyday people" (read: not millionaires or fashion industry folks) who just have great personal style. Thanks for honoring them! :)

    (I still hate coats draped over shoulders, though. I know many people love that look, but to me it's just not functional and sort of silly.)

    I'm loving her ensemble, especially her shades. I really like how her silhouette contrasts with his which is more formfitting. I think I may have to start back people watching when the weather allows!

    What a stylish duo. I love the shrunken blue coat, and flannel scarf on the guy. He clothing creates a nice thin silhouette. The woman's coat is beautiful, and I love the turtleneck.

    I was going to say that they looked like a modern version of John [Lennon] and Yoko Ono, but I already noticed someone else thought of the same thing.

    March 6, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    I love her whole look – the shades, the turtleneck, and coat and the flared jeans to the ground. I don't think I like the shrunken look for men, but I do love to see people with unique style. And he looks like he would be fun to hang out with.

    The pop of gold jewelry and her camel coat and sweater step up the appearance of the couple as a whole. Notice the sleeve length on his coat. Are those short enough for you?

    her hands and feet seem to have been lopped off. i do not understand what is aesthetically pleasing about hemming the pants in such a way (i'm questioning you phoebe, darling).

    dash snow look-alike next to her however has quite the desirable hem length. a little short, but perfect with the boots and jacket.

    i expect to see this hideous floor hem trend go the way of the low-crotched and ill-named "harem" pants.

    I expect her hands are right below her wrists, and her feet are right below her ankles. Mystery solved. As for harem pants; Just wait until spring. Those suckers aren't going anywhere. Or at least they are not going away.

    This doesn’t do a thing for me. His jacket is too short – and hers is too long. Same with the jeans respectively. His look is too uncomfortable – hers is lazy to me somehow.
