    Ah, the Donald Trump answer:

    "You mean my Rolex? I like class and style, I like to look good."

    Is this a parody section or something? Reading the past "looks" from the magazine is just as pathetic (I can't decide whether the aging woman in the cow spot coat, the pompous/constipated expression on the pink-scarf wearing bouncer, or the trying-way-way-way-too hard psuedo-Bohemian look on the NYU girl is the worst) and reinforces every bad stereotype one might have about New Yorkers. Is this type of look/attitude really that common?

    I looked thru the archives at all the guys, and every single one of them looks absolutely ridiculous.

    And no this is not how your typical NYer dresses- not by a long shot. As many times as I've been there I rarely notice people dressing trendy- BUT then again I don't frequent the neighborhoods where that is a big thing so my experience is probably skewed.

    I like the Look Book. I like tiny featurettes showing how eccentric people dress. NY is, and should be, a haven for such people. So should other great cities. i-D magazine in London 20 years ago was just a booklet of dozens of such photos, only they were all of young people.

    Awesome. Watching self-important tools get put in their place always makes my day [​IMG].

    Reading Gawker's take on The Look Book usually makes my Wednesday/Thursday.

    Their analysis on the kid who worked at the record label about a month ago almost caused me to spew coffee out of my nose. The leathered UES couple two months ago was just embarrassing too.

    The only guy with any apparent clue is the parking lot attendant.

    To borrow from the lexicon of Ernest...

    Eccentric = Tokyo Fruits

    Look Book = Tacky NY Hipsters

    I thought that Italian couple looked okay too - although they sounded exceedingly vapid and their *looks* were pretty pedestrian (very Italian though - pretty much could have been any youhng Italian couple I know - especially the guy's stuff.). I did like the parking attendant's style - man's got style.

    The best one is Oleg Cassini; he is obviously a kindred spirit to some of the members on SF:

    "I have maybe 50 pairs of shoes of classical beauty. I look at them most of the time, but I do not wear them."

    Jon.
