I love it so much !!!


Blogger Jennie Nhi Nguyen said ... (5:29 PM) : 

he's looks very cool!



Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (5:33 PM) : 

Sorry Scott, not a look I like very much on a man, the shorts look too much like a skirt (a kilt look I love though.)


Blogger Beverly Bohan said ... (5:35 PM) : 

The hair is my favourite part.


Anonymous Philli said ... (5:36 PM) : 

So chic! Love the monochrome.


Blogger Carmen said ... (5:39 PM) : 

I love his attitude !
So chic .


Anonymous Jennifer - Stylish Clin d'Oeil said ... (5:44 PM) : 

so fun! the short looks like a skirt! stylish!
But, is he really french? it's so rare to see French people like this!


Blogger Bianca said ... (5:48 PM) : 

what a dream


Blogger MagisterElegantiarum said ... (5:52 PM) : 

Woa! Every detail is so right: from head to toe, literary! The haircut and the shave, the white chrispy shirt and the shorts, the black socks and the withe not very strict shoes!!! I like it very much. Elegant and sporty and free...
P.S. - well, the sigarette might go...


Blogger amy said ... (5:52 PM) : 

très intéressant.
I normally adore black and white anything, but I think I'd like this look even better if the shorts were cut closer to the body.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:59 PM) : 

Very original and fresh, but this shoes... Noooo! Like in small town in my Poland ;-)

So. Cool.
Hah, the cigarette is really funtioning as the finishing touch. Perfect!


Anonymous Alessandra said ... (6:02 PM) : 

His hair is my favourite part. I do like his shoes, though. Frankly, I think the shorts resemble a kilt just a little too much, although I'm a fan of the widely cut short in general.


Blogger Liv said ... (6:23 PM) : 

Wow. Fair play for courage. I can't say I'm crazy about it, but I think that may be because it reminds me of Elizabethan mens' wear (the silhouette of the 'shorts'), and that era just doesn't sit comfortably with me.


Blogger Korver said ... (6:28 PM) : 

I find it very difficult to take this fellow seriously, despite his frowning countenance.

Maybe it's the hair?

His shorts are perfect - I love the silhouette

amazing how his look is so feminine but yet he seems so masculine.
quite an impressive chap

Anonymous dodz said ... (7:03 PM) : 

that was awesome looks, so perfect


Blogger a Broad said ... (7:03 PM) : 

I agree, if it were a kilt, I would love it but the shorts are too skirty for my taste.

Other than that , muy bien ~ !


Blogger Eilish said ... (7:08 PM) : 

i love those shorts :)


Blogger jessica said ... (7:43 PM) : 

The proportions of his hair, sleeve rolls, and socks really put this look together.


Blogger Lady M said ... (8:05 PM) : 

It's cool styling.


Blogger FJB said ... (8:13 PM) : 

almost the little black dress not.

the shapes in this look are great!


Anonymous Malicious Mallory said ... (8:58 PM) : 

Looks effortless!

I agree that it looks very feminine yet masculine at the same time. Hard to do.

digging it!
crisp white shirt, dark shades, pretty hair, sharp beard trim, smokes, shoes, pants/skirt. perfect!

I'm not sure the wide shorts are a good idea on a man as petite looking as he is. As a 4'11" woman, I know when to avoid stump-inducing silhouettes and this is STUMPTASTIC.

But his beautiful shirt and shoes and hair made me forget all about the shorts in the end.


Blogger Morgan said ... (9:52 PM) : 

Ah, straight from the runway... and so soon! Not sure how crazy I am about the giant shorts thing.


Blogger Liya said ... (10:02 PM) : 

i love a good white shirt... its all about the cut and the material


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:08 PM) : 

Loved the look as I scrolled down, especially his hair and crisp shirt. But I got to the shorts and just lost interest. Something tells me this will be a look that people either love or middle ground. I was so hoping to see narrow trousers, maybe even cropped a bit, but not those wide shorts.


Blogger Eva said ... (10:13 PM) : 

I thought that was a kilt at first. I like the look of his crisp white shirt for summer.

This man is cool in a way that is intimidating! But I do have to favorite part is the way he accessorizes his face with his choice of beard shape and hair cut. Very fierce!


Blogger Kiki said ... (10:45 PM) : 

Black and white...
A very strong contrast....
I like it .....

Cool shorts :)
Love that its wide like almost skirt.


Blogger Shirley said ... (11:35 PM) : 

I really love it when boys can dressed nicely!
It is so rare these days to find boys like this, especially in my place, Bali, where most people only wear tshirts and shorts every single day...


Blogger Brittany said ... (11:54 PM) : 

So, so, so right!


Anonymous Kate said ... (11:58 PM) : 

i wish my hair was as obedient! the shades and the crisp white, buttoned up shirt are so inherently cool looking.

love the look from the shorts up- I'm just not digging the skort, version 2.0.


Anonymous JoieMarie said ... (12:04 AM) : 

I love that his shorts look like he is wearing a skirt. That is a trend I look forward to catching on with men. Also it looks like this guy shaves his legs. Why not? I love his look!

very Marc Jacobs, he looks very elegant with the skirt actually, a sort of japanese feeling to the look

Reminds me of Bill Cunningham's On The Street video this past week. Nice.

So basic but yet so Amazing !

Ooo la la...Very different. I would think that Mr. Beckham would try this look xx

oh tu te rapproches de chez moi!
j'aimerais tellement te croiser dans une rue!


Blogger M said ... (2:53 AM) : 

He looks good and I'm so in love with his shoes but why did he use to shave his legs? They look like meat carrots.

But hey, his style is great!


Blogger KD faustino said ... (2:59 AM) : 

i love that shirt buttoned all the way up!!! the wide shorts gave it some kind of quirk too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:01 AM) : 

luv it!! this inspires me


Anonymous John Wesley said ... (3:01 AM) : 

Errr--Uhhh... Not sure wearing clothes that make one uptight (or take oneself too seriously), is ever a good idea.

Honestly, at first glance, I thought the hair was a French beret!

But the white shirt is elegant. And rolled-up sleeves are always preferable to a short-sleeved dress shirt.



Blogger couragehappiness said ... (3:18 AM) : 

Love how he plays with the gender norms! Really excited to see this. He's got it going on, and he's hot :)


Blogger couragehappiness said ... (3:19 AM) : 

Ah--I thought it WAS a skirt. I would like it *slightly* more if it in fact was. Still great though :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:31 AM) : 

Oh no, I am sorry. Still can't get over this: guy wearing a type of skirt-thing. Disagree on the hair too. This a look that will soon be forgotten. Or so I hope...

i hate almots everything about this one. from the super camp haircut and shave to the attitude. From the buttoned up shirt to the skirt (everyone seems to think these are shorts, i just see a skirt), to the cigarette, the shaved legs and those stupid shoes. He looks like a total ass.

Not for me bur i like it.I love so much black & white.I'm never tired of these combination.

The way he holds the cigarette completes the look beautifully!


Blogger IIDA said ... (6:30 AM) : 

I just... love it. I won't dissect my reasons for loving it, I just do. Unconditionally. Madly. Oh, the simplicity and the sublime coolness.


Blogger s t y l i s h m u s e said ... (6:47 AM) : 

He could be a younger version of Karl Lagerfeld. Although his look seems perfect (everything is in black or white) there's something missing.


Anonymous Maya said ... (6:55 AM) : 

really great look, but shoes... naaan

Pepe LePew?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:27 AM) : 

His collar is so perfectly standing and neatly buttoned up--I love it. :D


Anonymous Holly said ... (8:30 AM) : 

Loathe. Totally "stumptastic" (love that!) but it's the combination of uptight collar button with bare legs that I hate. It's like it's business up top, casual at the bottom. So of the moment I missed it (but I'm not sorry).


Blogger Liz S said ... (9:11 AM) : 

Yep, I think he's great. Glad that some men push the boundaries--not that it's pushed very far here--classic black and white, standard nice shirt, shorts, wayfarers--that's all very mainstream.

The only push I see is the width and cut of the shorts--but this could be the angle of the photo. I am sure some of the old African safari movies from maybe the 40s/50s? had men wearing very wide skirt-like safari shorts.

Shaved/waxed legs and bodies are the go these days with many boys in school here in Sydney--it doesn't seem new or strange anymore. It depends on what look you're trying to achieve or what look your "born with".

The only thing I'd throw out is the siggy--for such a refined crisp look the smell would not work.


Blogger Fashion, Art and other fancies said ... (9:18 AM) : 

The epitome of the modern French dandy! The shorts are a big surprise for the eyes. After that crisp white shirt the viewer expects trousers, not shorts.
Excellent element of surprise!
That is what fashion is all about;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:34 AM) : 

hi from Italy
just when the picture is loading in parts starting from the down it seems lik a girl picture, with the legs that didn't show any fuzziness that can be seen.
Then othe half upper image it is a boy as usual.
So i guess it is a picture 50% woman and 50% man: personally i does not know many men that shave their legs.
Overall a hurting image done with majestic touch!




Blogger Nikki said ... (9:35 AM) : 

Love.... from the neck up


Anonymous Wulf said ... (9:40 AM) : 

Exudes tight control without the quality of being uptight, (though a bit of the Japanese school girl with those socks wore like that).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:14 AM) : 

i like this look, but if the shorts were maybe chino shorts the look would be better. i have looked for crisp white shirts everywhere with no luck. dont get me wrong i have found some, but i feel as if i get the schoolboy look instead of classic and chic. anyone haves any suggestins of where he got that? thanks


Blogger a Broad said ... (10:14 AM) : 

lol ... I showed this photo to a friend and said What do you think ?
He said why is he wearing an apron ? lol .. Those shorts just don't cut it .
I have now decided I am not loving the little white shoes either.


Blogger Cathi said ... (10:19 AM) :

He looks like those bossy girls who would knock you over in gym in high school.


Blogger brightlightsbigcity said ... (11:00 AM) : 

why boys should be allowed to wear skirts to school.


Blogger Gil said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Super cool. Like others I love the play on masculine/feminine. Paris really is the epicenter of style and creativity.


Blogger Gary MAEL said ... (1:03 PM) : 

It doesn't work for me. It's to much of a hard work. He spent to much time creating his style and it doesn't look natural. I love the black and white, but the serious face is to hard for me, as well as the realy too graphic outfit. It's certainly different (though I see a few other men with the same kind of style at the moment in Paris), but I don't like the attitude.

Yet, I understand that you chose to make a picture of him as he definitly stands out.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:41 PM) : 

I guess it's good, the French avant garde thing going on. I have a problem with men who button up their shirts all the way to the top, I wish he'd unbutton a couple.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:33 PM) : 

Awesome shot, for some reason he reminds me of a better version of Keanu Reeves (^_^)


Blogger Helg said ... (2:58 PM) : 

for me, he will look better without socks


Blogger KM said ... (3:05 PM) : 

Above the waist: yes. Below the knees: yes. I'm not sure what I think about the introduction of this baggy-short thing. It's apparently coming into high fashion, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the best idea anyone has ever come up with.


Anonymous Marta said ... (3:32 PM) : 

This look is so cute until you get to the shoes. They mess up the look to me. Cool concept though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:54 PM) : 

I must say that I am not feeling this seems too avant-garde. Its message to the world is: don't come near me...too studied, too much of a winking reference to other fashion people.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:06 PM) : 

He has the Marc Jacobs thing going.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:36 PM) : 

Can anyone tell me what wayfarers model he is wearing because I'm confused.It looks like the 2140 901 but the down edges are bit squared whereas the ones I've bought are more rounded!

hah! Love it. Very interesting, brave without having to do the actual deed of wearing a skirt (you know, just in case it's windy) Very cool.

I love the wide shorts and the shirt. Shorts X kilt= Skolts? Shilts? Sholts? I liked the ones Prada presented. Dislike the shoes and silly 80's hair.

Wish he were wearing a utilikilt an inch or two longer than those shorts... but I love the way he's playing the severe (hair, shirt, black-and-white) off the silly (goofy shoes and socks, defuzzed calves).

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:27 AM) : 

I've been reflecting on the presence of people smoking in your pictures for a while, only now do I feel like commenting, as I find it really bothersome.
It's not the fact that people are smoking that bothers me, but rather that it contributes to the never ending idea that smoking equals being stylish.
Somehow the pictures tend to portray the cigarette as a fashion accessory, as if it were a hat or a scarf, and it's kind of twisted. Showing someone smoking in a movie is very different from portraying someone smoking in a fashion magazine or on a blog like yours.

I'm well aware that the people you meet on the street have a life of their own and do what they please, and that you choose to depict them as they are, but by showing them holding a cigarette while describing their amazing style, I feel like it conveys the wrong message.

The fact is that smoking isn't cool and whether you like it or not, what you show your readers has an effect on how they act live their lives.

Ditto with "anonymous said"-- this is a silly outfit and the haircut is ridiculous, I would never take someone seriously with a beret hair style. So tired of people that compensate with a "look at me" getup in place of a real fashion sense


Blogger Kathleen said ... (1:55 PM) : 

Wow, way out there! Bombay britches, got to love them. He is very 80's, a continuing theme for months now. Either this, or my head has been in the proverbial sand and we have been revisiting the 80's for the past three seasons. Even though monochromatic is MY THING I think this guy is a bit too extreme. He is too pale to be wearing such a starkly white shirt and the same with the britches. He needs a bit of color somewhere. The whole thing is pale instead of crisp which is probably what he was going for.

Blogger Specialty Hair Cuts Baltimore said ... (8:31 AM) : 

Nice post.

I say,
The emphasis of a barber school's education is to teach the essentials of providing hair and skin services for men. They often learn to perform razor styling, hair cutting and coloring, blow drying, foam shaves, steam facials, and facial massages.
Using a good hair salon is key to great hair care. But how do you select the right hair salon from the many choices available?
You can do to guarantee that you always receive the best hair cuts, latest professional techniques and stellar service is to choose the right hair salon. Granted, that is easier said than done. With hair salons on practically every street corner, narrowing down your options to find the right salon can be confusing.

Anonymous Jackson said ... (2:32 AM) : 

I notice that you do take photos with smokers, in the act of smoking. It's true that there is an understood element of glamour or je ne sais pas about a cigarette, perhaps, I think because of the way it makes the hand contort, or force the forearm or arm into a pose, but surely we can learn to see a smokeless world?

I think here it detracts from the purity of form. Pity, because the pleated short and perfectly parted hair is such a striking force in this pic.

You bring the whole world to people.
