    This couple really is from two different worlds.I like the cowboy style better-it is real.The woman has on fancy pieces,but somehow the result is not working,looks dull.

    This really bores me. If you are going to go rockabilly, even a little bit, do it well! The man is okay, but the woman’s look is unremarkable. I guess I can just take this as a shot of the guy, but he only looks so-so.

    I love the blouse and skirt pairing. I would never think of putting those colours and textures together, but it works.

    He stole the shot but her earrings are a pleasant surprise with this otherwise forgettable outfit.

    Sofia Coppola looking like Melina Mercouri. More Mediterranean than Texas to me.

    Oh, Ms. Dello Russo, how I love thee. She’s my fall fashion icon. I’m completely obsessed with what she wears.

    Wow! I especially love how the perfect jeans are accented with a great belt and boots on the gentleman.

    I love the combination and they’re overall ‘attitude,’ but not really sure I’m feeling the skirt on her–seems separate from the length of her legs.

    Their style reminds me of an editorial piece in the US Vogue from 2005 with Isabeli Fontana and her husband and baby and featured Marni, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Miu Miu…kind of Ali McGraw and Steve McQueen in Marfa…

    ooooh, i like her skirt and the animal print top.
    i also like that asian guy to the right with the grey double breasted jacket.
    but i really like the silhouette of the lady’s skirt.

    They look striking together, but I don’t like those tacky Gucci platforms from the adverts.

    my favorite part of this is actually the man in the background with the sunglasses and grey coat. the woman’s outfit is a tad awkward to me.

    Him…looking pretty laid back and casual in the jeans and check/plaid shirt combo. Great belt and boots

    Her…great oversized glasses, funky heels and a little animal print never goes wrong!

    Disparate looks that somehow complement one another.

    In re him: this is American dressing (whether he’s American or not.)

    This is what we do best: jeans, plaid shirt, avaiator shades (well, almost) leather bracelet-ette, etc.

    I’m a sucker for animal print…especially when it’s done this well and with such confidence.

    Is this the same young lady that has cropped up several times before in your shots sart? (see July 19 and a few others) .
    I think this lady always looks fashionable, but the clothes do not suit her. It’s as if the clothes are wearing her, rather than the reverse.

    The skirt is fine, BUT, it just doesn’t go with her persona.

    this one sure inspired some weird comments! he’s waaay more western than rockabilly. why wouldn’t it occur to some people to combine leopard print with camel neutrals? and what’s this about her skirt “seeming separate from the length of her legs” or not matching her personality, or whatever?? that doesn’t actually make sense! they’re both way too cool, and i see western in both. he’s a cowboy, and she’s his sasparilla-slinging sweetheart.

    They are so cool together somehow. Perhaps it’s the attitude of the moment?

    OMG, if even one of you had EVER been to Paris, Texas, which I HAVE, you find this image to be utterly flattering.

    The true style of Paris, Texas runs more toward polyester and plastic shoes!

    haha, Paris, TX, good one Sart! i've driven through there more times than i can count. Very sweet people, but not nearly as stylish as the original Paris.
    The woman's shoes are awesome! but somehow i find the people in the background of this picture more interesting.
    Also, i must say that a proper Texan would never wear this jeans that low. They look cool on the gentleman, but Sart, don't you keep telling us to pull our pants up to our waist?

    Gorgeous skirt! I love the cut. Its an amazing, simple outfit with western pieces. it makes me laugh that someone actually thinks that this is rockabilly. Its far too classy for that, obviously, and they are not actually trying to be cowboy like, although that is a very witty thing to notice. Some posters here are being amazingly clueless.

    Is that George with Anna? I feel like I’m on first-name terms with them from viewing the Sartorialist all these years…
