In the first pictures the jackets look pretty cool and original. I can see the guys beeing able to wear them all the time, since they are both elegant and sporty. Perfect for jeans, perfect for more business casual outfits!!

I love your work. Its just so...there in the moment. Your probably wondering how I ran across your blog, but I thank Intel and their visual life project that their advertising on youtube that I found you. You happened to be on the spotlight and I clicked your video and that really was an eye opener. In all honesty, I would be honored to be taught photography from someone with such a outlook on the world and the internet.

Wow, he's totally ripped off the Norwegian selbu rose pattern for the jackets on pic 1 and 3.


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

Last summer on the 2 train I asked a young guy why he wore his pants so low that I could see his underwear (I asked several guys on trains about this over the course of the summer). His answer was that it was just a trend he was following. We talked a little about trends before he got off the train.

I was wearing jeans that had shrunk up just above the ankles. And while that had been a complete accident, I told him that I was bringing floods back and to prepare to see them by next year.

And look what I've done!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:49 PM) : 

WOW, I love these designs, esp. the faire isle cardigans & sweater jackets - they hark back to the American heritage & tradition...something that I try to hang onto otherwise, I fear we will lose touch with our identity in this fast changing world...rather than spending so much time on our facebooks, twitters, blackberrys, when was the last time you remember sitting down to write a letter to someone you love? When was the last time you wrote in your own personal journal, for no one else to read but for your eyes only so that your memories and thoughts are your own, not to be shared with hundreds of others? When was the last time you called someone on the phone to have a truly meaningful and thoughtful conversation?
I long for those days...and yet I know we cannot live without all the technology available at demand and instantaneous...

Great photos as usual!



Blogger Davidabl said ... (2:03 PM) : 

I'm not enough of a fashionista to be
able to say much of anything about most "runway wear" but when I see
faux workwear fashions they generally
seem pretty lame to me. I guess the
traditionality and almost unconscious design of most workwear doesn't mix
well with the hyper consciousness and "novelty-is-everything" of most
runway wear.Stuff that isn't worn in real time by real people....


Anonymous sam said ... (2:11 PM) : 

Sweater blazers? Awesome. I'm not crazy about the slightly-too-short sleeves combined with the short pants. I love the short pants - the brown shoes deserve them - but the sleeves just look off to me and would be even more wrong on a bike (or most anything involving movement).


Blogger Heather Robinson said ... (2:12 PM) : 

Those faces! Such expressions! As softly romantic as the clothes--but I loved the addition of "L'Equipe"--France's sports paper--interesting...

And hooray for red-heads! We need all of the support we can get in life. :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:23 PM) : 

Very amusing. This collection has brought a smile to my face. The first few photos of the take on the fair aisle sweaters was especially ingenious.


Blogger hillaryp said ... (2:34 PM) : 

I'm a girl and I think this is perfection. I can picture guys I know looking amazing in all of these pieces. :)


Blogger CW said ... (2:53 PM) : 

I have nothing complimentary to say about the clothes.

1. My wife has a cardigan version (c. 1980s) of the top photo's jacket.

2. The jeans in the bottom photo are styling rip-offs of Carhartt, Walls and OshKosh.

3. None of the models look happy or proud to be in these duds. If the people paid to present the clothes do not look happy about it, you know they think that these are marketplace-losers.

4. Whoever styled the head of the mustached man should lose their barber/beautician license. Not only does the style detract from the model's face, but it also detracts from the clothing presented.

5. The Fair Isle patterning across the jackets does not work for me. The closest to successful is the one in the second photo. It may have been better if there would not have been the repetition of the white diamond/red background patch at the bottom of the jacket. After that, if the fourth one would have lost the velvet patch pockets and kept besom/flap pockets, that might have worked.

6. In photo 4 and photo 8 - this was Paris, not Brisbane. Nice shoes.

I loved the look of the mustachioed model. Some of the jackets and pants were quite nice. Not too keen on the short pants, tho.

I don't see why this is so good. The patterns, apart from the first, look cheap and the colours are boring. All the other pieces have boring colours as well and some of the outfits are just plain ugly. The lumberjack coat has a hideous colourscheme and the jeans in the last picture look like 5 dollar skaterjeans. I mean, I know Junya made this, but that doesn't make it good. The only thing I really liked was the third guys hair.

Oh no, more endorsement of the boat shoe. I get a fright every time I see them on a hipster. Some things can become cool, but surely not the boat shoe. I like the concept of the fair isle sweater as a blazer but not the reality! too contrived for me.

I had to keep looking at the most recent entry (the one after) in order to not throw up at the looks of these pansy-men in grannie sweaters. With the exception of the first one (gag), I could possibly to learn to like the sweater-blazer, but I can't help but to wonder what instructions those models were given other than: "look as goofy as you possibly can."

Interesting entry though!!

Structured sweaters just like my father used to wear way back in the day. This a very noticeable nod to the elegance that once graced the slopes of Vermont, Aspen and the dens of men everywhere in the 40's.

Nicely done!

It's very smart to turn the runway into a street, and to feature typical things such as l'Equipe or parisian public benches. It brings fashion and people (or what is supposed to be a typical man...) closer. Indeed, the influence street style is striking here.

I really LOVE the prints blazers, especially the second one. it’s wonderful!

It doesen't happen often, but sometimes new takes on old classics really work. Like this time!
I love the knitted blazers, and the Brokeback Mountain/lumberjack-style along with it can never get ugly. Personally, I like the first and third picture best. The model on the third picture made me gasp! Haha.
I can see this collection in all swedish fashion magazines, and definately on the streets of Stockholm...

Pip, you are not alone. Those Norweigan sweater jackets are truly appalling. Maybe its a age thing, but OMG. I'm having flashbacks to high school in '75.

Great clothes, great shots! But the poor models all look so ill/exhausted/dirty -- ugh... )-:

So I guess I'm the only one who thought those were some ugly ugly jackets and absurd high water pants.

Pure perfection, the models remind me of the movie Diary of Anne Frank.

If one wants to see this exact type of fashion or meet one of these frail hipster vegan boys with curious facial hair, come to my Whole Foods in Chicago. The employees are dead ringers!

True words, Beth. Come to Montreal and you'll find hundreds of these boys in art school studios and underground loft parties. What's new, Junya?

I love these fair isle jackets

The clothes are forgettable, the models stand out like characters from a movie. The one with the wild look and the red headed one with the mustache--brilliant.

Drop dead collection; who else could make L.L. Bean and the quintessential 'ugly' holiday sweater look so right now? And the models....yummy
