there's good clothes happening to bad people, and bad clothes happening to good people. can we have good clothes not happening to good people? to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the brand, phillip lim staged a special show in beijing this week. but whoever decided to style nakata head to toe in the fall winter 2010 runway look should be shot. nakata is an athelete, a ck underwear model, a clotheshorse, this really shouldn't happen. unfortunately he is screaming victim than trendsetter to me.

i still maintain my rule, that 99% of the male population should not attempt to do the belted look or the trousers in high boots look. and even more so, doing it together in one look.

let's just remember this look from the waist up then.



  1. I'm sorry I think he look forward and well styled. I think the jacket looks very smoking jacket suave and the pants and boots give you I just came in from riding my horse look.

    Different stroke.

  2. Those boots are pretty fucking awesome.

  3. I actually like the look , the belt is not high enough on Hidetoshi , he looks good though !

  4. The key to the look is probably long legs. Asian men have longer torso and shorter legs in terms of proportion. Without the shin guards would've been better, as it covers up.....most part of his legs. And the belt, the look would've been more flattering if it was placed higher. Little details, little tweeks. Agree!

  5. calvin: agree, dress according to body shape. little details make all the difference :)

  6. i agree to your last statement...


what's he wearing?
