Before Yohji but After Chess King

I love this look...actually, I don't know if I love it or if it just really reminds me of my days as I high school kid working at Chess King.

Not sure if I'm totally into the entire outfit especially because I'm not a big fan of baseball caps but I'm loving the proportions of the trousers. I just bought a full leg grey flannel pant last time I was in Tokyo from United Arrows and it looks fresh and totally updates everything I own. I should've bought the same in other colors.

I love his proportions! Schoolboy Realness in full effect!

LOL! I think it is the memories thing.

I would have loved this without the casquette. Now I just like it.



Blogger said ... (12:25 PM) : 

Haha, interesting outfit, it looks like me made it himself.

I like the all-of-a-piece-ness of this without actually liking it in total. The shoes--or what we can see of them--are, however, choice.

I like the pants this guy is wearing. They look sicko with his shoes. Unfortunately, I don't think this guy can really pull off the whole baggy pants look. He needs to get a different hat and wear it backwords or with the bill flat. Another thing that would look good would be a different sweatshirt, like a hoody.

i like it and he's totally cute


Anonymous lintmag said ... (5:02 PM) : The best word for this outfit might be "unfortunate". I abhor baseball caps unless you are actually a baseball player on the field.

I actually think this outfit would look fabulous on a girl.

OMG, Sart, I worked at Chess King when I was 15! I didn't know anybody else remembered that place!! Yes, the top looks quite CK (not the usual referent for those initials). If only there were a little mesh. And a completely unnecessary zipper.

the outfit breaks the lines of the body completely. it has the feel of decals and body modifications put on new vehicals so car manufactures can test drive them without having spy photos fully reveal the new model.

i used to have a chess king shirt.

Lawdy gracious, you crack me up Sartorialist...framing that kid's look as something between Yohji and Chess King is perfect! Chess King!!!


Blogger Jamie said ... (4:21 PM) : 

Uh, can no one say the emperor has no clothes? This look is sloppy and awful like Danny Bonaduce raided his grandmother's closet.


Blogger Mark said ... (8:05 PM) : 

More Arena! They're everywhere.

Andrew NEVER goes out without a hat, that's part of his unlimited cuteness


Blogger sixfive said ... (7:53 AM) : 

Chess King!! Hilarious, I forgot about that place.. I may have bought a Z Cavaricchi or two in my day.

Andrew Bleedin Davis. But Monochrome? I remember the days he was the King of Colour round Exmouth Market..
