    Like the shirt too.

    Like the ink too. Must make it hard to match with clothing. I’d be going neutral all the time.

      the tats make it amazing!! :)

        The shirt looks like a mixture of a bootleg canvas from Paul Klee, and a piece of wardrobe left over from the bad 80s film The Serpent and the Rainbow…and the glasses look like vintage George Costanza.

        Not sure if this guy is trying to be Steampunk meets Guns and Roses, or a member of the Village People who has mated with a Williamsburg bouncer, but, I’m definitely not going to be rocking this look anytime soon.

        He’s a good character to photograph Scott, but not a source of fashion inspiration.

    This is interesting, the square cut at the bottom. Appropriate for summer, and yet, I’m expecting that this SHOULD be linen. It’s actually a nice clash with the tattoos.

    Awesome sunglasses!! Though a lot of tattoos.

    Is it the shirt you like, or the context that the shirt is in? I can easily imagine this shirt on an overweight man in his 60s who is also wearing khakis and just arrived back from his trip to the US Virgin Islands…not as enchanting in that scenario.

    That’s a pretty cool shirt. I feel like we should say something about his tattoos but we like his sunnies wayy more.

    Is that batik ?
    I like the “tough” jewelry.

      I think it is batik.

    I love it too and his sunnies are groovy.

    Sorry to be the party popper but I don’t like this look – too much going on for me, and none of it seems to go together. The beard, the glasses, the shirt, the tats, the jewellery, the baggy trousers – there seems to be no unifying factor. Maybe you don’t need one, but it just doesn’t gel for me. I do like the way his hair is combed back though – he has a beautiful widow’s peak.

      Although I love that shirt, a crisp white one would have tied it all together

    Great shirt…but the tattoos have me drooling.

    I always like to see those tattooed people. So cool how he mixes the patterns, especially, when one of them is his skin! :))))

    What a contrast between the tatts and the Hawaiin shirt. There’s a lot going on here.

  15. Jesica

    June 21, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    Not a fan of the tats. I feel like tats are so overplayed anymore, folks that do not have tats are more unique in my eyes! Don’t really consider the mismatched baggy clothes very stylish either.

    I have never liked tattoos but I love it on this guy. It looks great with the shirt and I love the color and print of the shirt.

    I keep coming back and I’m seeing what I like. Beard, tattoos, and I love the sunglasses.

    What a great palette of colours.

  24. ExxanMobile

    That is a modern batik from Indonesia, I guess.

    Loving all the prints going on, he looks fab!

  26. bobkentnova

    Aside from the haircut, I would not have opted for one thing in this look. I must go against the crowd on the tattoos… gives the whole look a low-rent bent.

  27. Andy

    June 21, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    Shirt would be cool sans button-down collar, but the glasses have GOT to go. And I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m unimpressed by ink and growing weary of “sleeves.” Rad has become fad. These days, I think having no ink says more about a person than having ink. The NYTimes David Brooks said it all back when he wrote “Nonconformity Is Skin Deep” (2006)

    Sorry but there are so many ink spots from head to toe he’s become a walking Rorschach test.

    its BATIK!!!!!! a world heritage art fabric origin from Indonesia! Need an elaborately looong time to made one. love to see it here

    • Nicky

      June 22, 2013 at 12:36 pm

      I usually dislike any kind of tattoo, but this extremely decorative ethnic looking tattoo alongside the heritage Indonesian design rendered in batik cloth is fantastic.
      It is as if someone from a lost civilization appeared and tried to blend in walking along the streets of Florence !

    I must say. I love those tats. Glasses are a good example of how following a trend is not for everyone

    Yes! My kind of guy.


    June 22, 2013 at 5:51 am

    For me, the T-shirt itself doesn’t look like anything special. What makes it interesting- is a combination with tattoos.

    Certainly makes you stare. Don’t like the look, though, I’m with the crowd that says tatts are growing old.

    That is indeed a fine shirt!
    I’d go with slightly smaller, silver-framed glasses here (and the trousers’ proportions seem a bit off in combination with the shirt). But on the whole this is one of those summer looks that’s both sharp and (literally) cool-looking.

    If he wants those tattoos to be noticed he should wear a solid-color shirt otherwise it clashes like this and just looks awful.

    That shirt look like batik.

    I don’t care for the clothes but the tattoos and sun glasses are aces. I see too many young men out there with horrible tattoos.

  61. Oonagh

    The scale of the glasses is wrong IMHO, way too big. I love the shirt though.

    I love the shirt as well. but I feel like the tatoos compete.

    is that Batik from Indonesia?
