An unlikely combination

My leather jacket plus leopard print scarf and his chalk-striped double-breasted suit, that is. And yes, we actually wore these outfits today... to Abra├žo, dim sum in Chinatown, the MoMA, the Bar at the Modern, and later to Belcourt. I'm sure we got a few stares!

First up, two silly shots of me giddily gulping down my iced cappuccino. Note how long my hair has gotten since the dramatic chop I got in the last his and her post. It's become rather unruly again. A bit of a boring outfit from me again (as I have gone an all-time record long for me not buying new clothes and I no longer am excited about dressing myself), but I definitely count the Contax as my statement-piece accessory.

And below, his (somewhat matchy-matchy) getup. I didn't get a good shot of the whole suit - it's hard to shoot faceless portraits - but it's quite unique and apparently fits somewhat "like a sweater." I also failed to capture the shirt details but it's a light pink stripe and made from vintage fabrics (oh and it's got a friggin' TAB COLLAR). Needless to say, any stares we might have gotten today were almost certainly directed at Jimmy. Wah.

And for the next round in this series, perhaps a casual look from Jimmy... we'll see!

  8. The red shoes and leopard print scarf make the outfit.

    I love the beautiful (aqua? or periwinkle?) blue pinstripe in the suit, and the stitching along the collar.

    He has a mouth!

  12. Wear the suit that you like if you want to be adorable. For me I wear blue pinstripe suits because I love them and my friends feel my sincerity.
