On The Street.........CDG DB, Paris

Comments on "On The Street.........CDG DB, Paris"


Blogger Laguna Beach Trad said ... (6:46 PM) : 

Nice photo. But, what exactly is going on here? I don't get it. Like a recent subject of yours (the young man standing next to a baby pram in Stockholm), this shaven-headed gentleman's sound choice in clothing, evidenced here by the DB blazer with peak lapels, seems to have petered out by the time he got to his feet. I do not understand the trendy habit of wearing 'sneakers' or 'trainers' with normal clothing. This is one of my style peeves. It's almost as if trendy shoes help such people feel they are maintaining their street credentials, IMO.

I like this; he's created a nice calibration of the dressy and the caz. Like his layering and "easy" pants.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:06 PM) : 

Red light red shoe. Very urban.


Blogger Candid Cool said ... (7:20 PM) : 

I like the crinkles and wrinkles. He looks so cool & great


Blogger The Trendbooker said ... (7:39 PM) : 

Ohh that jacket is awesome - especially that double layering effect.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:09 PM) : 

know anything about the shoes?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:20 PM) : 

what kind of shoes are those and who makes them?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:59 PM) : 

A tailored, sophisticated look that's still fun thanks to the shoes and the less contstructed fit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:00 PM) : 

but then again, if I am correct in believing that CDG is an acronym for Comme des Garcons, what else could be expected?


Blogger DeepBlueSea said ... (9:29 PM) : 

Great jacket!

Suppose the shoes (Vans?) bring casualness but still... they're really kids' shoes...


Blogger brandon said ... (9:37 PM) : 

great look, and normally i wouldn't be into chunky shoes with the outfit but the red on the heel definitely makes a difference.


Anonymous Svenska said ... (11:06 PM) : 

i love the sneaker style saddle shoes. saddle shoes, to me, are preppy like no other and contrast nicely with the ultimate casualness of the rest of the outfit. nice!

Is he a sailor off board? Somehow this idea hit me immediately.I like his happy face.Laguna:Forget the sneakers.I´m getting a bit bored on your comments about the shoes.Let our sailor enjoy his visit on shore-please.


Blogger landis said ... (11:42 PM) : 

my envy for those shoes knows no bounds. i almost bought them three months ago, then thought "no, stop. landis, you KNOW you have too many shoes already."

now, i know there is no such thing.


Blogger Christina said ... (12:56 AM) : 

the shoes!!

looks like a sea captain to me.


Blogger brooke said ... (1:39 AM) : 

so youthful and hip, yet age-appropriate!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:26 AM) : 

bad wearers can happen to good jackets... and someone should tell him he's in Paris not Bordeaux


Blogger jamesy said ... (7:34 AM) : 

Not sure why everyone is so focused on the shoes, other than there is really nothing quit edgy about his look. He looks to be a dashing enough fellow. The outfit is like any other layered casual effect, but for me there is no zing in this. I do not feel the push of the boondry or a reaching beyond convention. Maybe I am missing the point of how a Come des arcons ensemble is youthful or edgy whe Rei has been routing the same razors edge for 30 years.
c'est la

laguna: "It's almost as if trendy shoes help such people feel they are maintaining their street credentials, IMO."
I think you're on point, and this is something I do, subconsciously or consciously maybe, for this reason. and I think it's fine.


Anonymous giuseppe timore said ... (9:28 AM) : 

Dear Laguna,
Everyone wear's sneakers with nicer clothes theses days. Thats why there are so many fashionable, sharp cloth and rubber sneakers on the market right now. This guys shoes are not only acceptable, but stylish and cool. It's not as though he's wearing gigantic air-max gym shoes. Laguna, for a guy with the word "beach" in his username you sure are acting stiff about comfortable footwear. Do you ever have to walk or stand up?


Blogger Iheartfashion said ... (10:24 AM) : 

Love the double layered effect on the Comme jacket, but I'm not sure about the sneakers. I know they've finally taken over Paris, but I prefer leather shoes for anything but exercise...


Anonymous Al said ... (10:54 AM) : 

i want. i need those shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:19 AM) : 

Note to Landis...there is no such thing as "too many shoes"....

He's wearing casual pants, no tie, and his jacket appears to be of a casual material, and therefore I have no issues with his shoes...he's not taking this style thing too seriously. Which is refreshing.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (12:24 PM) : 

that jacket...want it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:41 PM) : 

aren't those the marc jacobs for vans shoes? those are amazing!


Blogger spierce said ... (3:00 PM) : 

I think the shoes are Comme des Garcons Homme Plus, I was looking at them in Barneys in LA a few weeks back. I think the whole look is CDG and in my opinion is very very sharp. It reminds me of early CDG shows where the runways were full of older guys looking superb in wrinkly, unstructured suiting with shards of colour coming from sneakers and t-shirts. I think the look is still totally relevant and a good alternative to the slimline Diorism still so dominant.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:01 PM) : 

ah, this reminds me of when i was learning how to do my own laundry freshman year of college...


Blogger dulcinea said ... (8:24 PM) : 

i love this guy - and i dont' even know him!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 AM) : 

Sorry, I've tried, but I can't accept the pants.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:36 PM) : 

I am in love with his look and his aura. He looks great and at perfect ease with himself. He has that casual slightly edgy but well put together look that I like.


Anonymous m- said ... (4:40 PM) : 

this man looks great! look at how he pops compared to the others on the street. sart, i don't always understand why you like someone's style or why you may consider it sartorial, but i appreciate the fact that you appreciate others' fashion expression.
those of you that are dissecting these people's fashion sense are way too myopic and that tells me you don't have a true appreciation for fashion and style...way too many rules.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:34 AM) : 

does anyone know for sure who the shoes are by? i desperately searched the web...but nothing...anyone?


Anonymous Alfie said ... (4:01 PM) : 

Thanks for the comments guys.
About the shoes, CdG Homme Plus of course!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:58 AM) : 

Shoes are definitely cdg. 3 colorways at Barn's right now.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:38 PM) : 

This gentlemans shoes are Comme des Garcons - £230


Anonymous paolo said ... (12:37 AM) :

Anonymous matt said ... (5:00 PM) :
