andre 3k?


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

Andre 3000?

Try Andre -3.

I'm just not with this one. Less than the sum of its parts.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:02 PM) : 

What exactly?!

There is so much that I don't like about this look.

I could go on and on.

Instead, I will just say what I do like which is how he is wearing his tie on the outside of his sweater instead of on the inside.

I also like his hat.


Blogger tartanscot said ... (9:04 PM) : 

fantastic . . . . . .
stylish, unique, and individual . . . .


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:34 PM) : 

Wow, he actually incorporated something fromt he costume store.


Blogger ScotSkipper said ... (9:42 PM) : 

Semper FAB!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:54 PM) : 

ROTFL! Every post is going to mirror anon @ 8:41 pm.

Three shirts and a tie with nothing really matching (loving the jacket though) and me wondering what he's hiding behind his back.

He's hyper cute though and I'd compliment him on the get up if I saw him on the street. He's obviously polished (see grooming details), so it's not like he just threw that on.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 PM) : 

I love it, I think its fabulous.


Blogger positive_negative said ... (10:03 PM) : 

Honestly, the thing that makes me love this outfit the most isn't the styling or the accessories but the burst of green under all of it.


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

loooooove it. don't really like the head gear going on but that jacket and the green sweater are smashing.


Blogger DK said ... (10:30 PM) : 

HA!!! Now that's swagger folks. I'm going in the bathroom right now to practice my snarl.

I would've never paired that jacket with that sweater, but that's what it's about. Someone showing us the possibilities.

I endorse.


Blogger EMNH said ... (10:31 PM) : 

Love it...

I love his expression, it conveys the same irreverent and quirky charm as his ensemble.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:47 PM) : 

actually, he's trying to pull off a Pharrell...but without the high-end accoutrements.

Another example of Hip Hop at its original best (though many erroneously think Hip Hop is about baggy pants and fitted baseball caps).

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 PM) : 

Someone already said Andre 3000, but then I thought, it's been years since I've seen him in jeans....

Seems more Ralph Lauren Holiday.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:18 PM) : 

OK, this guy has style, flair and originality - so much more than Richard Chai and friends (I really didn't get that picture). Mr. Insouciance. Love the green with the little pop of light blue at the neck. Love him.

cool look, but the gold buttons are distracting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:55 AM) : 

Quite funky fresh. I love it.


Blogger Lit said ... (1:17 AM) : 

Oh that rocks! Never mind all the charisma coming through, the outfit on its ownn is quite brilliant. That green cashmere (at least it would be best if it was) sweater, the little blue t-shirt showing underneath that. This guy is really rocking this outfit and of course that jacket and hat! Really good pieces there on their own, that form a great whole. If only he hadn't worn that tie, makes him look he's trying too hard, and he really doesn't need to, the clothes would carry him just fine.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:31 AM) : 

Hello gorgeous!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:33 AM) : 

My sister and I were shopping next to him Sunday night at the new UniQlo on Broadway. He was wearing both the hat and jacket then and we loved it!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:15 AM) : 

His expression is priceless!
And his outfit is so funky.

I love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:18 AM) : 

yes definetly dre, but its so mimicked down to the pose that its more like he's dressing up and trying to be exactly like Andre 3000 than having his own style that incorperates his and 3000's together. More like a late costume than personal style to me...
P.S. love this blog!! im away at school upstate, one of the many ways i keep in contact with my city. LOVE IT!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:24 AM) : 

That's fantastic -- without the jacket, it would merely be casual preppy (although the colours are great, and the tie over the jumper is stylish in itself); with the jacket, it adds a kind of military/brass band vibe, and the hat (plus the attitude) adds nonchalance and devil-may-care to the whole thing. I love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:43 AM) : 

he looks like captain jack,, hot


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:45 AM) : 

cool mix


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:48 AM) : 

my heart just stopped...and he doesn't resemble andre 3k at all.

i like...i like..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:15 AM) : 

It kinda works, actually.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:16 AM) : 

Wow, I just love this look. The green colour is fantastic undet the jacket.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:38 AM) : 

This jacket is amazing. Cannot say the same about the hat though...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:46 AM) : 

I like the mix of colours - blue, green and the golden buttons.

Blogger C.Edwards said ... (7:50 AM) : 

Hmmm...I'm just not a fan of military, marching band or scouting apparel of any kind in everyday wear.


Blogger Butch said ... (7:53 AM) : 

This has a through-the-looking-glass quality; now it seems to have been plotted, now it seems to have been...well, not.

But somehow it all works. The hat is REALLY pushing it, though....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:05 AM) : 

No actually it's me!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:19 AM) : 

Gorgeous! The aqua/lime/navy combination does it for me. It's a beautiful use of color contrasts -- particularly the red piping playfulness picked back up in the tie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:11 AM) : 

he looks fab


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:31 AM) : 

Love the Sgt.Peppers jacket with Aviator hat and Preppy schoolboy sweater tie combo. Only in NY! Love!


Blogger MARIA H said ... (10:17 AM) : 

I like all but the hat.
It is not the wrong is the wrong size, or material for those other pieces. Maybe for a more futuristic assemble it would work better: a monocromatic skinny futuristic combo.


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

Handsome with a sense of humour. Nice combo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:27 AM) : 

what is the point of this? is just stupid looking.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (10:33 AM) : 

Wow - what a dude. He has put so much effort into this ensemble! I love all the completely different elements - the military-esque coat, the school boy tie, the green of the jumper. It looks fantastic together!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:40 AM) : 

There's just something so...right...about this.


Blogger michael said ... (10:41 AM) : 

NEED one of those jackets.


Blogger Alison Santighian said ... (10:56 AM) : 

So. Much. Fun. This guy just makes me smile. Never mind that he looks great, and looks like he feels great - and isn't that what it's all about?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:26 AM) : 

what not to like? i love the fact that he wears those boring pete doherty pieces in a totally hip hop way. brilliant!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:37 AM) : 

i really like that this guy pulls off this uniform jacket thing that was so huge in this years winter collections of some mainstream italian designers (you know them, i wont name them).

he just does it right. really fits.

not that over-the-top-attitude but a lot of irony going on in this ensemble... congratulations...

(even though it's not at all my way of clothing)

He looks great, not everyone would pull this off.

Love the marine coat but i think the tie-without-shirt-collar look is utterly ridiculous, even on the coolest of rockstars. a scarf or a bandana works better.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:29 PM) : 

I think this looks so cool -- love the civil war meets Andre 3K / Kanye mashup style. But sweet mary for the love of god I hope after snapping this you advised the gentleman to tuck the tie under the sweater! hello?

now that's what i call style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:01 PM) : 

Oh wow! Can you see that little peek of blue out from under his collar? It makes the entire outfit so much more interesting!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:33 PM) : 

His stance makes me think of Basquiat by way of Jeffrey Wright. And that just charms me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:39 PM) : 

Very interesting-looking young man.
Very cute.


Blogger LEeds YORkshire said ... (2:47 PM) : 

brave it is. but i find it over worked and over embelished. it is more fashion over style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:52 PM) : 

almost there, but lacks cohesion


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:03 PM) : 

Last time I checked this country was at war and young Marines were fighting and dying overseas. A Marine's dress blue uniform is only appropriately worn by a United States Marine. If you haven't earned title Marine, take the jacket off.

OMG...I said the SAME thing. Very Andre 300


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:04 PM) : 

He's a gorgeous guy but the headgear is a little too much with the jacket. Perhaps especially because he's a gorgeous guy.


Blogger Just an Observation said ... (5:42 PM) : 

"costume store" " don't know exactly" " nothing matching"...all and so much more could be said..... I would like to ask this individual what exactly is going through his head when he was putting these clothes on ......Playing dress up perhaps ....I've done that ...Guilty as charged ....but I do not walk out the door.
It's important to have a little of everything otherwise we would all be living in BEIGELAND

Sad to see all the references are race based: Jean Michel, Andre, Pharrel??? "'re Black so you look like (fill in the blank with the name of some Black pop culture reference) Wake up!!!!!! Free your mind and your ass will follow (and maybe your sense of style)!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 AM) : 

I think he looks really Hendrix-esque (attitude, jacket) and that I love!
don't really see Andre3000...or Basquiat a la the movie...either way, though I love it, love the layers, the green sweater, the tie with the sweater and especially the jacket and attitude!


Blogger Ana said ... (11:07 AM) : 

Humor, fun, alive!
I adore the jacket embracing the green, that's color movement!
The tie look, lovely. Seems to be the ironic part... then is perfect!
The hat, brr, wish I've one like that, but here the heat is perennial.
Love this space, reminds me I'm still human in a material way!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:46 PM) : 

it's a nice jacket--very rockstar, a good find.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:29 AM) : 

I've a good deal of jarhead friends who'd probably sock him in the jaw about that dress coat.

I just don't get the whole military-esque (or, here, simply wearing the real thing) thing in fashion.


Blogger ageez said ... (10:40 AM) : 

anon 1:17 p.m. - he *is* wearing a collared shirt. if you look closely you can see the shirt lapels.

i think he looks awesome, but i do have to agree with 3:03 p.m. perhaps a "military-inspired" coat would have been a better option.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:32 PM) : 

Dressing up like someone who has style doesn't necessarily mean you HAVE style....


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:57 PM) : 

I've spotted him also on the subway going home. I think it's safe tosay that this is his signature. I love it with a passion. I've been tempted to ask him if I could take a picture of him especially to see the different variations he comes up with.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:02 PM) : 

Only someone who has EARNED the right to wear that jacket looks good in it. This guy is missing one thing, the pride that comes with earning it. I agree, there are men in Iraq dying right now who earned that eagle, globe and anchor who will never wear that jacket again and this guy is wearing it as a fashion accessory! As a Marine myself, it does make me angry to see it worn in a disrespectful manner!


Blogger in defense of retail therapy said ... (1:07 PM) : 

this is very london.....very...nice 'tude...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:27 AM) : 

Great look and attitude. And interesting criticism by those who think he hasn't earned the right to wear the jacket of a U.S. Marine.

1. Maybe he *was* a Marine, and did earn the right to wear it. Are there no disaffected Marines, especially now?

2. No one should ever be assaulted for the clothes they wear. Everyone, including Marines, should learn some tolerance.

3. Surplus stores sell these jackets to the general public. Here's an example. *He's* general public. He can't buy it?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:50 PM) : 

a cutie, but just a bit too much. would be nice to delete one accessory -- either the tie or the hat.

also, it's curious that the young man of color is repeatedly compared to famous hip hop artists. i see little connection to andre 3k or pharrell beyond race and skin. the basquiat reference makes sense, though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:47 PM) : 

Style is important, yes, but so too is respect. That's not a marching band uniform he has on...that's the jacket from a dress blues uniform of our United States Marine Corps. The men who wear that jacket earned it by pledging to defend our freedom, at all costs, so that we may host fashion blogs and walk the streets of that fabulous city. Unless that jacket belonged to his father, grandfather, or uncle and he's wearing it out of reverrance...I find it a bit disrespectful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:20 PM) : 

As a former Naval officer, I understand the Marines' point of view with regards to respecting the uniform, but military clothing (especially vintage) has always made its way into civilian style. Khakis, bomber jackets, peacoats, diver watches, aviator sunglasses and cargo pants (just to name a few) have become regular staples of modern clothing. I would argue it's the issue and reissue of all these classics that in some sense keeps the military relevant to the average civilian who hasn't had the honor and priveledge of serving in hte armed forces. As for this man's look specifically, it's great to see him come up with something interesting and judging by the number of posts, worthy of conversation. Well played, sir!


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

Wow, how many (well dressed!) current/former officers read this blog?

I don't much care for the look, independent of the perceived disrespect. Too flashy. As for the jacket, it's a current issue dress uniform, not vintage or a costume store item.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:18 AM) : 

Love his expression and that's about it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:56 AM) : 

I love this! The green sweater with the light blue underneath - great color combo & the jacket is so unusual. Hat is a little crazy - but hey - go for it!
