SoCal Street Style

Today while perusing the local Flea Market I spotted, quite possibly, 
the most chicly dressed man examining antique telephones with his girlfriend.
I was so happy he was kind enough to let me take his picture.
Gah!  I don't know where to begin - the amazing color of the sweater, 
the silhouette of the pants, the hat, the glasses, the socks, the shoes...
it's all of it.  Perfection!

I'd love to date him just so I could borrow from his wardrobe to create the most perfect menswear-inspired outfits!
Daydreaming about it now.

Dawn said...

Haha...So nice he let you take his picture. You should hand out royalties for his ideas;)

Er, he is a total legend! Oh my god, what a find. Well done for actually getting him on a telephone, haha! Makes it look like less of a generic street style pic and more iconic.

Wow, he is so well dressed. He looks like he should be in an editorial.

He's certainly fashion-forward -- to be honest, I don't know if I could date a guy this far ahead of the curve. Love the color of the sweater, though!
