portrait: gent with…a jaunty hat

gent in jaunty hat

happened upon, in an elevator, a charming english gent with a festive jaunty hat. His name is Martin, and he&#39s a photo stylist.

i think the hat may have been the secret source of… his magnificent sartorial style.

socks, stripes…and serendipity

while sitting at a hair salon, i happened to glance sideways and saw a cool Stüssy cap perched on the station; and so i carried my glance further to see who it belonged to. it belonged to a very chill and stylish guy, who looked like he walked out of an ad in Surfer magazine, and an arbiter of style, at that.

my eyes were riveted downward, to his footwear…how great is this. like a little vignette of righteous self expression…but not at eye level; at FLOOR level.

and, i might add, he was very gracious to let me snap a pic… so that i could show all of you.

stripes man

soak it in.
