my absolute favorite blog of this kind. So glad I found you on Twitter. One of my favorite people to follow. I love and love your work.

the shoes, especially the way he's wearing them (i believe they're slightly/loosely untied), are fantastic. could those be super-light-blue socks and t-shirt, or do they look that way bc of the lighting?

It's the background of this shot looming over and immersing the figure that gets me. A thoughtful choice for 9/11.


Blogger najee said ... (5:30 PM) : 

somber utilitarian.


Blogger Natascha said ... (5:32 PM) :

Wow, Love this!


Blogger Daphne said ... (5:56 PM) : 

No photo has ever felt more New York. I adore this. If he was facing us something would be lost. Maybe it's the constant waiting on corners for the cars to stop coming, or for a cab to pull over that is such a part of ny life. How often you see someone's back to you at a street corner. I love it. And the flag peeking over his shoulder feels so right on this 9/11 anniversary.


Anonymous Aleah said ... (6:08 PM) : 

I love those shoes juxtaposed with the grey hoodie...and those tattoos. LOVE IT.


Blogger elaina brillantes said ... (6:21 PM) : 

if only we could see the front...i mean, if the back is that fantastic, imagine what the outfit as a whole looks like!


Blogger Pedro Herrero, 15. said ... (6:31 PM) : 

Definitely, the thing I like the most from this photographs are those buildings!

i always liked hoodies so i was like ok ok.. then, i scrolled down and BAM! there were the shoes. now, i can give him complete props. he's also a talllll one, great silhouette.


Blogger Elena said ... (7:33 PM) : 

I never thought it was a good idea to match such similar colors when pairing pants and a cotton shirt, but he pulls it off well. The hoodie on the inside of the shirt, rather than how most people wear it on the outside, is a nice touch.


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (7:49 PM) : 

Yes. This is good. I love the touch of the hoodie.

Just great


Blogger Nathan said ... (7:59 PM) : 

The New Gap Cords... all blended perfectly!


Blogger Marina said ... (8:00 PM) : 

This is so simple. I love the not-trying-too-hard-but-secretly-i-am look... long, right?
But, I love NYC!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:23 PM) : 

so amazing and surprising! As I was scrolling down, I was expecting sneakers or something to that effect, but when I saw his shoes I laughed out loud! They were so unexpected, but gives a cool edge to the whole look. Rocker grunge meets your grandfather's closet :) In the nicest way possible of course!


Anonymous margo said ... (9:18 PM) : 

hmmmm. not so fond of the top half. i just don't like hoodies on adults as street wear (but i do like that he's actually USING the hood). but i love the slim pants, light blue sock, smart shoes.


Blogger pretty kitty publishing said ... (9:19 PM) : 

The contrast between this shot featuring the monochromatic tones, the hoodie, the gentle creases, and the gentlemanly footwear is rightfully contrasted with that of the preceding photo of the gent with the braces, the hat and the checked shirt with the striped tie. Both looks speak to me, and yet one is minimalistic and the other idiosyncratic. Well done, mates.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:19 PM) : 

Your book just arrived from Amazon - I love it - thank you.
My favorite photos in the book as well as on your blog are the ones of ordinary people. While fashion industry insiders dress beautifully and often interestingly, it isn't as exciting for me to see what they are wearing. I crave photos of the people, male or female, young or old, who manage to cobble together a visually interesting outfit out of what they can afford and what they can find in the stores available to them, or perhaps in the back of their closet, or a friend's closet. Sometimes, just a pair of red socks can cheer me up and make me ready to face the day ahead of me.
Thank you for your passion in sharing your photos.

This is called a hipster. They're infectious.


Blogger HW90 said ... (9:57 PM) : 

Are you kidding me with this shot? How do you do it? There are so many things about this shot I love. This is art. Beautiful. And touching, subtle and meaningful, especially today.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:15 PM) : 

I like the way the blue at his hip--a t-shirt?--repeats the blue socks. BluISH socks, actually. I think that they're actually white.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:29 PM) : 

ugh. really? just another obnoxious hipster.


Blogger josh said ... (10:35 PM) : 

cuffed jeans?


Blogger metscan said ... (10:57 PM) : 

Does anyone else feel as scared as I do, seeing him from behind ? With the hood up and the tattoos, this picture reminds me of the many newspaper pictures I´ve seen of youngish men taken to the court house, men accused of having done some terrible sort of crime; therefore not wanting to show their face. This, or then I just have a hell of an imagination.


Blogger Takeshi said ... (11:05 PM) : 

I would change up the pants and the socks, but I love the hoodie and the tats.


Blogger Le Veggie Burger said ... (11:22 PM) : 

i love how hes wearing so many peices of clothing, but it just feels like one. Specially love the hoodie under the shirt.


Anonymous m.edwin said ... (11:31 PM) : 

nicely framed between the two identical complexes and at the intersection of the crosswalk. this is definitely a pleasing shot of the interaction of city and man.


Blogger MeMeR said ... (11:49 PM) : 

It is so simple yet perfect..


Blogger MeMeR said ... (11:50 PM) : 

It is simple yet so perfect


Blogger George said ... (11:52 PM) : 

I would have that shirt in, with a good belt, but that's just me.

Great use of shoes though!


Blogger Logan Wolfe said ... (11:58 PM) : 

Wonderful silhouette, the etymology of this look is interesting. Very contemporary, very c&w, very urban, very socal, very hip.


Anonymous - le 21ème said ... (12:00 AM) : 

Not looks good....but not very focused. For example, the outfit is at the same time being very tailored and dandy...hmmm....still not sure. Probably makes much more sense in person. If the hood weren't there it'd be much more concise!

I like how his uneven cuffing of the pants.


Blogger Lola said ... (12:18 AM) : 

Great shot!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:47 AM) : 

nothing special. the hood on the inside only confuses the matter.

Very Newyork-ish.. I <3

I don't care for this lad's outfit but I can tell he has the perfect body for clothes.

How I wish I were him...

this is art!!!!
I love this blog


Blogger Fernando said ... (4:44 AM) : 


I don´t see any special thing. Another CK clone.

Only the shoes would say something


Blogger saradowle said ... (6:00 AM) : 

The combination of the clothes and also the background of your pictures is what I find so fascinating.


Blogger Holly said ... (7:35 AM) : 

love the socks!

Cool silhouette!

It's like he desperately wants to be seen and yet remain unseen.

Don't we all?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:43 PM) : 

i love this photo. from the yellow cabs to the white lines of the road to his tattooed forearms to the American flag.

bravo sart. you keep me hooked and always impressed.


Blogger heath said ... (6:13 PM) : 

well done, i say.

*note: "hipster" typological reductionism is more of an infectious sociological cliché than being the one standing in accusation.


Blogger travelbug said ... (9:57 PM) : 

Nice shoes and socks.


Blogger Brett J said ... (11:19 PM) : 

This is nice...nice mixing of dressing up signals and dressing down signals


Anonymous karmapolice said ... (12:42 PM) : 

Gray-on-gray never looked so appealing. Like a uniform, and soft yet sleek!

But I don't think the cuffing of his pants is actually necessary here.

oh my! i love this so much i am with absence of words.

i hardly ever leave comments on blogs. but this picture carries so much attitude flair - it makes you look at it searching for details and dwelling on it. it is one of my favourite pictures you took.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:16 PM) : 

I want the shoes. what are they?
