The Unknown Hipster

Street watch

I saw this dude at a Paper Magazine's party earlyer in the season. It seems to me this look really catches the moment.

I saw this dude at the Paper Magazine party recently. To me, this look really captures the moment.

 

This spring, herds of dudes are hitting the streets in tight short pants. I carefully studied the look, and it seems the more untanned the legs, the tighter and darker the short pants.When I say “untanned”, I mean the legs should look like they have been forgotten in the CBGB basement for 25 years, and a sales assistant at John Varvatos just excavated them from under piles of shoe boxes.  It’s a smart urban look, good enough to attend civilized events and great for cycling at night if you’ve got no rear light. 

 

Post-winter, or neo-Punk?

A tall scary dog always enhanced a bland look

And my own interpretation of the summerish look: 

 

For a more personal touch, I pair my black tight short pants with an all American preppy look

    How weird, I was seriously contemplating bicycle shorts two days ago, envisioning them as the right bottom with my colorful African summerish tops.. Love your blog dude.

    Very timely post. I was commenting to Hubby the other day about the rise of this trend. However, he is wedded fully to his beloved, utilitarian cargo shorts.

    what a daring way to feature anemic gastrocnemius muscles.

    i love this look – but then i enjoy nearly anything that propagates mens’ bare legs in my visual landscape.
