On the Street....Rue St. Honoré, Paris

Don't miss the sliver of the blue denim shirt peeking out by his collar - really, the shades and textures of blue in this look are sublime.

Great! Next time in Paris, I want to meet HIM :)

so sly of peaking buttoned jean-collar, well played.


Blogger junglesiren said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Fascinating.... for so many reasons. It feels like he stepped out of the Russell Crowe version of The 3:10 To Yuma, making those motorcycles look anachronistic.

Yeah, whatever. If it's cold enough for an overcoat it's not warn enough for flip-flops. Ah-so! Though I concur about the blues.

I really love this style !


Blogger Hayley said ... (12:39 PM) : 

I am just in love with his hat and his coat!
Such a quirky ensemble and yet he makes it work.
I love this photo, such an amazing shot.

This "chinese parisian" looks funny.

Carrousel du Louvres, rue Ste Honoré, Jardins du Luxembourg... don't you know some other places ??
1 square kilometer is not Paris.

I love everything about this picture--I'd like to see the outfit without the confines of the coat but I guess it's too chilly~!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:14 PM) :

I've never seen a plain old mac look so interesting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:21 PM) : 

I love your blog and your book. They both are a source of inspiration for me but lately there hasn't been much street style on your blog and I miss that. Love from Gothenburg, Sweden


Blogger Carlos said ... (2:26 PM) : 

Amazing combination of textures.
About the picture, it's like the subject was taken out of context and put in the city, but for some reason it suits him. Maybe because of his mastery to dress?


Anonymous Edgar C said ... (2:56 PM) : 

i have often wondered about wearing a wrap like this.

but not in the cooler months

I really hope this 'men in skirts' becomes more popular!

I don't get it!


Blogger Shagada said ... (4:07 PM) : 

Herr Schuman, it's freezing here in Zürich, can we get some inspiring winter looks?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 PM) : 

I like that there are people out there brave enough to wear this sort of thing...and wear it well!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 PM) : 

I'm sooooooooooo going to steal most parts of that style!!!!!!!!!!!!


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

Do you think his coat help him keep his feet warm? I would love being able to wear flip flops in Paris' mid october. It would simplify my everymorning outfit searching. Love his by the way.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:29 PM) : 

That look in his eyes... I want to marry him.


Blogger Susan said ... (4:40 PM) : 

I like his style a lot! Brings in culture with fashion!


Blogger kimricosays said ... (4:42 PM) : 

i love how it still has an influence of his culture mixed in with 'parisian' fashion from the coat.

great picture


Blogger rhai♥laborte said ... (4:49 PM) : 

I love his jacket! I can work it out! Argh!

Wow, the vietcong are back in style.


Blogger CW said ... (5:15 PM) : 

Good composition in blue, but otherwise an interesting, but somewhat confused look.

Blogger nowohucianka said ... (5:43 PM) : 

you can tell he's an interesting person. the composition is great...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:52 PM) : 

I agree that this is not a fall look.
But very natural to this man.
Try again in the spring.


Anonymous Corby said ... (6:02 PM) : 

this modern day monk is only missing his bowl (to beg for alms). if that is not the look he was going for, then who knows what the....


Anonymous davidsl said ... (6:19 PM) : 

cool blues, but a hideous outfit.


Blogger beths said ... (7:06 PM) : 

Maybe I had to be there? This look is just sloppy to me. I can imagine how the parts could work well, but this version leaves me cold, like his toes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:25 PM) : 

great face but the look is too thematic


Blogger SinotheDivine said ... (7:39 PM) : 

this is absolutely great is tradition mixed with fashion and individual style.So street,so it


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:59 PM) : 

Amazing, absolutely amazing style!! One of the best photos on the blog; the picture taken a while back with the man and his son in kaftans is equally a favorite.


Blogger Catherine said ... (10:37 PM) : 

Oh.My.God. Marry me, whoever you are!


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:49 AM) : 

Indigo monk....!!!!Yamamoto style


Blogger kasha said ... (2:05 AM) : 

Wow, this guy rocks. He seems a mostly interesting character.


Anonymous Stacy said ... (3:13 AM) : 

My favorite part of this blog is when you post a look AND explain why you personally found it interesting.

I never would have looked at this outfit and conceptualized it as three different shades and textures of blue.


Blogger BlogCoder said ... (3:45 AM) : 

The fushion between Japanese culture and current trend. The blue of his coat is gorgeous

That's fashion. He knows he looks good in what could be considered a costume by some. I love it.

sublime !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:26 PM) : 

A very handsome man with an amazing and strong face-- such a shame he's wearing an over-sized and long jacket along with a skirt that makes him look like a Hobbit. Eccentric style is not always flattering.



Blogger Alan Nei said ... (4:10 PM) : 

one of top ten in The Sartorialist
almost for me !!
real,authentic,unusual and fashion

He's freakin sexy.... effortlessly sexy...unique...and theres a teal kinda blue....when ur sexy ur sexy with anything on....i dont think i could pull this off like him..... so ethnic but not that themed...doesnt look like a costume .... im stunned... of the best so far....


Anonymous Coy said ... (2:55 PM) : 

One of the most handsome men I've seen in a very long while.

I happen to like the hues which all work together seamlessly but also like the contriction in "seasonal" attire. Long coat and sandals. Breaking rules looks good on him.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 AM) : 

EASY wear...?


Blogger ME said ... (7:48 AM) : 

I like this photo because I think this is not the image most people have when they think Paris. This exudes a feeling akin to finding a rare trinket in the most unexpected of places.


Blogger Sunny Side-Up said ... (10:29 PM) : 

I love it!
