Not a fan. Too costumey somehow.


Anonymous cynthiagirl said ... (4:35 PM) : 

Those boots are fantastic. Love how the cropped pant shows 'em off to perfection.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:38 PM) : 

I'm not a fan of the cropped, flood-style pants, and the look is so hackneyed and so many seasons ago, yet this gentleman is wearing that look beautifully! I love his all black monochromatic look. It seemed that the trend this season is monochromatic, which I love because the emphasis with the monochromatic look in in the textures/textiles. The boots that this gentleman chose go so well with his whole sartorial ensemble. I like the fact the he did not pegged his pant legs which I find very fashionably immature and sartorially sophomoric. If an individual chooses to wear shortened pant legs at least hem them properly. Since he did not break the line of his silhouette his shortened pants did not give his legs a stumpy look about them. Very CHIC and very well done!

Incredible! The photo composition of his clothes (black or navy blue, not sure) against the gray aggregate wall is eye-popping.

Am seeing lots of photos of people wearing the "highwaters" look. I personally find it unattractive - looks like cheap, ill-fitting clothing - clownish. He's an interesting looking character otherwise.

Wow, reminds me many dark classics in art. Great style, not for everyone.

The scarf and the jacket are great.

Everything else should be thrown in the garbage (especially the cigarettes).

Look at his worn out, weathered face.

Modern Scarecrow is bang on.

Awesome photograph tho.



Blogger SMD said ... (8:10 PM) : 

Isn't it amazing when people can create a memorable outfit all in the same color? I've often tried to do a few shades of one color, but this outfit is genius. I love the expert draping, the layers of different lengths--and the way it looks completely efforless.


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (8:19 PM) : 

reminiscent of the 1980's japanese influence.
this look almost seems like an avant garde cocoon.

to my eyes the jacket looks inky navy and the trousers black.

love the fingerless gloves.
so hip in 1984.
so necessary for touch screen ipads and iphones in 2011.

He pulls this look off so well. Everything from the shoes to his gloves. i love this!

Not impressed. He would have looked much better if his pants were full length and he didn't wear clown boots. At least they are polished.

I don't know, looks similar to a chimney sweep ensemble -- imagine a brush in his hand and a top hat


Blogger Schmidt said ... (10:46 PM) : 

Okay, so I've been seeing your blog on many other bloggers' blogs (make sense, yes?), but I never went around to viewing it until now; and gosh do I feel mad. I should have followed this blog like a million of years ago, because this is TRULY THE BEST BLOG EVER. The pictures are absolutely amazing, and oh what more can I say? This is ..just wow.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:02 AM) : 

I want to touch his clothes--he looks so huggable, in a you-can't-touch-this sort of way. I think the textures and shapes in this prevent it from being boring. But I wish that I could get him to eat something and put on some muscle.

It's a shame about the cigarette, he looks great but I would find it more interesting without it. Maybe a bit Chaplinesque.


Blogger Sup said ... (4:25 AM) : 

I love the monochratic look he is going for! The draping is subtle and doesn't stand out much beacuse it's all black on black. A really composed look but I suggest him to ditch the cigarette!


Blogger Angela said ... (4:44 AM) : 

love how what he's holding in his left arm gives him the extra edge and angles that bring out the look.

Love the way the rectangles of the cigarette pack and his white shirt cuff shine against all the black and grey! But God I wish those boring and obvious comments that appear here every time you shoot someone with a cigarette would stop.

Blogger TheHypeAround... said ... (12:53 PM) : 

How can a person wear a look so stunningly dramatic and yet look so "natural" drapped all in black? Well, kids, this is how you do it.

One rule of pulling off any look is confidence and this gentleman has it in spades! This is what Iggy Pop would look like if he owned more a several pair of torn jeans.

As a photograph its interesting, as a fashion statement I fail to see anything that is attractive about it. I find the 'high water' trousers hideous, as well as his length of hair and the cigarette is once again not an accessory.

Anonymous Lydia said ... (7:45 AM) : 

The contrast between the length of the jacket and the length of the trousers is beautiful. Besides the waistline is so slim while the scarf is exremely oversize.The trousers are too short and the sleeves are deliberately too long.

I think this person has a greet sense of architecture..and certainly a talent to wear black colour)

The only thing is the boody "looks" too young for this face and vice versa.

Who is this guy, by the way?

Anonymous ChiCChi** said ... (2:19 PM) : 

Bella l'immagine che s'impossessa dei sensi risvegliandone l'arcana immaginazione.
Figura piana che rievoca ricordi di cavalieri che aprono le danze e dopo,duellanti al galoppo sguainanti di spada.
Passaggio di viandanti, e carovane nomadi lungo le vie dai profumi d'incenso.
E stregoni e druidi tra foreste vergini, e Madre Terra che allatta cuccioli d'uomo e d'animale.
I pirati e i velieri protetti da Poseidone e guidati da lui nella sua dimora.
E canti e riti accompagnati dal fuoco a celebrare le stelle ed il nuovo giorno.
E' consapevolezza di un racconto che ci accompagna fino al domani e da lì una nuova e personale storia.
E' fermezza d'idea ed espressione fisica di un turbamento risolto e la conoscenza della bipolarità che trova il centro d'attrazione.
Risoluzione della caducità terrena dissolta all'infito nell'infinito.
Ai piedi i calzari alati.
Super classe!
Wonderful world!
