Freaking amazing!

How do you ignore this fellow! I've seen this type of stocking before on the runway, someone remind me!


Blogger IN TERMS OF ME said ... (4:51 PM) : 

Somewhat inconspicuous, yet very dope!


Blogger Lia said ... (4:52 PM) : 

WOW amazing leggings and shoes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:53 PM) : 

What an unusual and unexpected sight this must have been. Not every day that we see a man with fishnet stockings adorned with gold and silver beads -- this is a brave and intrepid man if I've ever seen one.

Anonymous A Girl, A Style said ... (4:53 PM) : 

Ha! I can't work out whether I love or hate the fact that this man is wearing embellished Sass & Bide leggings that cost more than most people's monthly salary.

For now, I'll just say: what a great detail to have captured!

Those leggings/tights are insane! Wonder if they're self-made (or if they are indeed Sass and Bide)...either way I need a DIY lesson, stat. XO Valerie

Something like a Michael Jackson and Gladiator mix =) Takes a lot of courage and self-confidence to wear such outfit.


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

a bit of a Mad Max look, especially with the rough looking coat. brave indeed.


Blogger Jessie said ... (5:48 PM) :

Blogger 4th Generation said ... (7:08 PM) : 

He reminds me of the anglosaxon/winterized version of Thoth

A street performer that used to be in New York City performing in the tunnels of central park.(is he still there?)

There is a thrill of discovering such wonderful oddities. It makes my life feel less "THX 1138" -ish.


Blogger Angeles Almuna said ... (7:14 PM) : 

WOW! Speechless ...... sometimes we need this kind of people.
Thank you the Sartorialist!


Blogger Simone Hester Creative Photography said ... (7:18 PM) : 

Looks like a modern day gladiator with a little flash....


Blogger ♥ Mary ♥ said ... (7:23 PM) : 

Huh. Now I'm just left wondering what the rest of the ensemble looked like...


Blogger davidikus said ... (7:30 PM) : 

The tights/leggins are certainly very daring!


Blogger *sunday* said ... (7:45 PM) : 

i could've sworn those tights he is wearing are Sass & Bide but didnt think they did guys stuff.. although I guess it doesnt have to menswear - its what you make of it really, isnt it..


Anonymous Caroline said ... (7:47 PM) : 

How fantastic! I'm going to Paris in three days and am SO excited.

Blogger Notes From ABroad said ... (9:26 PM) : 

Brave comes to mind... warm blooded (unless it is warmer than I thought in Paris right now) and dressed up with someplace to go also comes to mind :)


Anonymous thepersonalstyleconsultant said ... (9:44 PM) : 

Wow...I wonder if he made the tights himself...Definitely unique!


Blogger MSlattery said ... (10:08 PM) : 

Holy Mackerel!I love that he is looking at a map.

the paris metro station is designed by guimard. it's a real beauty.


Blogger Caddy said ... (10:23 PM) : 

Props to this dude. I like the contrast between his out there outfit (those leggings) and what he's doing ( something ubiquitous (studying a sign).


Blogger ADJ said ... (10:27 PM) : 

Ballsy. I like how fearless he is.

the important thing is to feel good in what you wear... this guy has fantasy!

Anonymous isawsomethingnice said ... (6:04 AM) : 

im wondering how it would look without the coat, i think this is what makes the picture so interesting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:03 AM) : 

you have to admire him but i'm not convinced. Are they rolled-back socks?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:15 AM) : 



Blogger Stella said ... (7:20 AM) : 

If this were the catwalk, instead of the street, everybody could call him genious. It´s difficult to make people stare at you nowadays, so.. bravo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:39 AM) : 

A wild Scotsman?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:43 AM) : 

I'm all for something quirky and avant garde but this is a miss. Something is off. The leggings and shoes translate to rebellious youth but of course the upper half does not. He's sending a confusing message.


Blogger KC said ... (7:48 AM) : 

for some reason i am both scared and fascinated by this look.


Blogger She's Carmen said ... (7:55 AM) : 

amazing!! what´s these leggins?pants? he´s fantastic!!!!!


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:03 AM) :

Somebody is right: the most amazing thing on the photo is the design of the metrotable!!
who wrote that i was in Sass&Bide leggins, is right!!

Patrick McDonald said to me about New York, "Don't be afraid. Just come here. And be yourself." I see the same is true of Paris.

This guy has the courage of his convictions. I love him. He is my hero. Or, as McDonald himself might say, "Just dandy."

Blogger Newburgh Restoration said ... (10:27 AM) : 

Oh - my - goodness!

Looks like he has a secret life a burlesque dancer or something. lolol. Thanks goodness my hubby is not that brave. that's another level.


Blogger Katie @ Yankee and Peach said ... (10:39 AM) : 

He reminds me of a fellow I snapped many years ago near the Arc de Triomphe, who was dressed in all leather and was leading a (live!) chicken on a leather lead. There were strands of twinkling lights behind him and wreaths hanging in shop windows - and the mood was perfect, bizarre, and fabulous.
Needless to say, it was my Christmas card that year.


Anonymous Saw Lady said ... (10:50 AM) : 

I love this guy's shoes! Black with silver spikes is actually in vogue right now in NYC (sold at stores on Madison Ave!)

To '4th Generation' above:
I believe Thoth is now travelling around the USA.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:57 AM) : 

Heavens, where is my sewing basket? And my Beadazzler, which suddenly does not seem like a silly thing to have around? I am itching to give some new life to an old pair of leggings!

Sart, this is why I agree with your words about looking at runway photos, whether you can afford luxury clothes or not. You can be pretty broke, but still learn from designers, and benefit from their good ideas. It is the same reason that a person who paints as a hobby should visit galleries and museums. Inspiration is a treasure, and it is usually free!


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:03 PM) : 

if this is his day-wear, exactly what does he wear to the disco?


Anonymous Nathan said ... (12:32 PM) : 

I think this guy looks great. It makes such a change from the usual rolled up jeans and scuffed shoes. :)
