looks very well put together. love the blast of sheer neutral at the bottom. looks more like an ad then streetwear though. trying a little too hard? hmm...depends on where he's going, i guess. just a feeling...kudos to him.


Blogger Aasia said ... (9:29 AM) : 

Lovely bag. The jacket reminds me of the Nehru jacket.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:33 AM) : 

Love the jacket and layers! Not so sure about the pants.

I agree. Is he wearing nude loose socks? What's going on at the ankle area?

I simply adore the play of the proportions and the reminds me somewhat of a samurai with a touch of french revolution and of course Comme des Garcons...teleio

his style is great! i love the daring layers; cropped pants with socks underneath is simply genius!


Blogger VerseaStyle said ... (10:35 AM) : 

Funky - I would have liked it better with out the nude 'socks'!


Blogger Maria Ana said ... (10:39 AM) : 

THAT jacket!


Blogger christinaooi said ... (10:43 AM) : 

18th century silhouette much?


Blogger Lou said ... (10:51 AM) : 

My guess: he's a ballet dancer.

The silky nylons around his ankles are a bit of a surprise. His hair - may I say so - is in his eyes! But he does look beautiful. I love the East-meets-West vibe, neutralized by the black. Cool.

I love this look on guys, especially the sweeping frigne and the button up collar. Not sure about the socks or is it part of the pants? It kinda of shouldn't work but kinda does!

Daring! I'm not sure what's going on with the layering. I'm sure he put a lot of thought into this.


Anonymous Percy said ... (11:24 AM) : 

Love the military jacket worn so casually and that bag is great! Not so sure about the leggings though make the outfit seem a bit too androgynous....


Anonymous davidsl said ... (11:28 AM) : 

cool jacket. the rest is kind of sad, though. he's too young for saggy support hose.

I've seen it all before, even the hose. But hose like that, only with a dotted swiss shirt waist on my granny after a bad night at bingo. It's all about context, huh?

Very Nice, Great, Love it. I've seen this a bit in NYC only once on a man. Love the varied length layers. Where can I get some



Blogger Unknown said ... (12:17 PM) : 

EVERYTHING WORKS! Love the extra long sleeves, layers, pants, jacket, and, of course, THE BAG! Monochromatic doesn't have to be boring with great details and textures.


Blogger Susan said ... (12:21 PM) : 

Love the jacket and interesting socksss??


Anonymous Indie Mom and the Reluctant Banker said ... (12:23 PM) : 

I like the look, all the layers makes it very interesting. Oh, and I love the bag!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:33 PM) : 

So Ann D., so Julius, so Damir Doma, so Rick Owens, so... It's not particularly an original style, but he's very handsome with the perfect proportions to wear the look-of-the-moment extremely well-- just wish he had slicked his hair back and didn't wear those awful socks/leggings that makes it look like he has saggy skin on his legs.



Anonymous Maranda said ... (12:38 PM) : 

I think this is a cool look but what are those leg things? I kind of like them, except they draw attention to the shoes, and I don't know if it's a trick of the light or what but his left shoe looks like it's a right foot shoe.


Blogger Rosalind said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Its definitely incredibly layered! It has a certain kind of dark charm to it, but I can imagine that its not exactly everyone's cup of tea.
But I do think that it works well here, especially when you're viewing this as a portrait as well as a style ensemble.
I really like his structured jacket- especially the small things such as the button detail.
A very interesting postin my opinion.


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



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:54 PM) : 

As usual, it's fit and proportion for me. However, it could be that I just can't really see the individual pieces. Is the jacket too big, with sleeves too long, or is that some sort of wrist warmer? Is he wearing a dress/skirt, or is that drop-crotch pants?

I think I like the jacket. But I'm not convinced it's the right size as the proportions look off to me.


Anonymous Libby K said ... (1:09 PM) : 

I am surprised how much I like this. It's like a past century, maybe the 18th, and the future together. How does he even get his socks to do that? And what is the layer under the jacket? So many interesting choices, all in what looks in the picture like an indigo palette. The color contrast is what makes the socks stand out.


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:11 PM) : 

Love the jacket...and tunic!

Not sure about the socks. To me they look like something I'm trying to avoid....old lady stretched out, saggy hose. I told my friends, if that ever happens to me; please shoot me and put everyone out of their misery lol!

I love the outfit, I want the pants. But the sad panty hose isn't doing anyone any favors. Is that part conceptual?

Wow -- brave man, looks great.

Everyone looks good in black-my favorite color!

I'm just very confused by the socks, the tan elephant-like hoisery. Couldn't he have just shown us some skin?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:34 PM) : 

It's fascinating to me how people are willing to grant leeway in so far as jackets and gender. But when it comes clothing for legs, men are terribly threatened by anything out of the ordinary. I wonder why that is?

It's the ultimate gender neutral look. The jacket is very cool - it's also got a John Varvatos feel (my personal favorite designer).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:41 PM) : 

Love everything down to the jarringly contrasting baggy "hose?" Not cute! Reminds me of an old lady with baggy support hose.

Blogger she tiger vintage said ... (9:20 PM) : 

the socks are what make this for me! so airy in contrast to the heaviness of the rest. also, reminds me a bit of galliano's aw09, though nicely interpreted for the street.

So hooked on Ann D.!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:40 PM) : 

are these really Ann D.?


Anonymous John M. Doyle said ... (10:14 PM) : 

While there is a certain level of androgyny at work here, there is also a more overriding historicity to be located in the coat, hose (sadly saggy), and footwear. What I find most interesting, is the manner in which he manages to combine both concepts in a way that seems somewhat familiar, but -at the same time-threatening to those who are more firmly rooted in the gender assigned roles we all normally inhabit in our clothing (not being in my 20s for quite some time now, androgyny will not work as a fashion statement for me personally, though much kudos to those who can still pull it off).
Living in uncertain times as we are, the natural temptation for many is to knuckle under and conform in the apparel they select. However, let us now praise the rebels for the courage and the daring to be different when it is the least likely thing most people would opt for.

great cut, and dark palette with powerful socks!

I like this, it has an undeniable flair- the hair needs to be taken firmly by the hand, nothing sexy about a bowl cut- but everything else is fly- go ahead youngsta!

Great layering, he is very cute too. I like the neutral at the bottom but... I can't stand the baggy-ness of the socks, I don't like that at all. I don't like harem pants on anyone, they just look silly.

Love the jacket, shoes, bag.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:36 AM) : 

With that jacket (amazing), that layering, the short "trousers" and the skin-coloured socks, he looks like some 18th century cast-off. That said, it is a great ensemble that, while odd, demonstrates wonderful use of layering and texture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:35 AM) : 

Lovely outfit except for the socks. Looks like my Nonna when she just cant manage to pull the socks up....


Blogger Marta said ... (7:36 AM) : 

Cute. And conceptual.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:59 AM) : 

If I put my hand to hide the bottom of the photo, I like it. If I hide the top of the photo, the effect is hideous.
And as was the case of the lady with the leather vest teamed with tri-colored boots and a striped dress, I cannot help but wonder what the result is once the guy is in motion: all loose ends (hair, tunic, harem pants, socks) flapping combined with balancing bag....
Definitively no.

The guy is obviously really handsome, he has a gorgeous face but i'm not so sure about the over-all look.It's definetely on the wave, with the metrosexual meets gay something like that, with the man-bag and all, but it doesn't really work for me...masculine and simple do wonders.He has a look that reaches a point of high subjectivity, either you like it or you don't. I adore the jacket and the shoes, saddens me to see such a nice guy looking like that. It just isn't appealing.

Oh! I can feel the story that this composition is telling: He is a model dying to come outside, smoke a cig, and run from hundreds of “bubbly” and “interesting” fashion connoisseurs inside, who are raving at the thought of another androgynous composition of the 18th century mixed with an antebellum Jacobin. On the other hand, he’s just dreaming for this day to be over so he can slip back into is perfect “plain” brown leather jacket and meet his “boring” girlfriend, for a “plain” and “boring” night out!

Brilliant combination of layers, amazing jacket (what type is that?), and perfect fit.I don't like the panty hose thing much though.

Overall, much respect to this young man for dressing in such a daring way and having his own style. It does get you criticism, but there are people who really appreciate what you're doing.

The jacket, the ruffles on the sleeves, even the stockings - the whole ensemble has a definite 18th century vibe going on.

Androgynous, interesting, and pretty well-put together.

It works for him, though it wouldn't work for me. For some reason, I envision this to look better had his calves been bare (rather than the nylons).

Love the jacket!

I really dislike this outfit. I have to admit that the socks are innovate but it just seems wrong at the same time.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:51 PM) : 

I've finally come to the realization that parachute/harem pants are an item of clothing I will never appreciate. While this young man obviously has his own unique style - and I commend him for that- those pants are just too much. They make him (any anyone else who wears them) look like they are wearing a droopy diaper. I just can't get over how much I dislike the pants. The rest is fabulous, though.

It looks like the outfit of a fairy tale knight who was suddenly thrust onto the streets of Paris. Like he is trying to put an elegant, noble spin on the clothes he finds in thrift stores. This is an outfit that speaks of power and beauty and individualism, fashion traits that can usually only be found in fairy tales.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:56 PM) : 

John M. Doyle nailed it! The silhouette here just works, down to the hosiery, to be honest. It takes talent, yes talent, to be able to pull something like this together and he has it in spades - much appreciated.

Anonymous Jesse Zorski said ... (5:44 PM) : 

I love Rick and Julius, (and Ann has been doing this forever since CCP and Geoffrey B. Small started doing it again)but designers only churn out this much black and white when it's the end of an era--basically someone like Wang is probably at a loss to innovate right now. Check it throughout history--Tudoresque, Spanish, English narrative, Victorian Era, Reformation and the goth-ninja jump-off. There's going to be something much bigger on the horizon soon. However, this is a sensationally classic look and I'm actually digging the hose.

best bag Dior ever made for men. It's so roomy and useful around town. putting the fringe thing on the main zipper (you cant see the fringe thing here) makes it so much easier to use. great outfit, especially the drop-crotch pants.
