    So much more honest than a faux hawk. Like the way it all works together, from the boots to the hair.

    Agreed.

    When I first read the topic heading, I was ready to cringe, but this guy seems to make it work and all the elements work well and work off of each other in an interesting way. I certainly couldn't pull it off, but I give credit to the guy for being able to do so.

    There has to be at least three guys with mohawks here at Uni -- they all look like idiot poseurs. Now this guy; we could hang out. I want that jacket!

    Regards,

    I agree about the jacket, Huntsman. This is a great look. Not far removed from what I like to wear for casual purposes, except for the mohawk. And I used to have one of those.

    The shades make it work. He'd look about half as good if he didn't have them.

    Definitely agree that the shades are key, but I think that the coat is a great touch as well. The whole look just hangs together nicely.

    What's interesting (at least to me) is imagining the same guy in a different haircut/style. The outfit really gives him a lot - his face is not that unusual/striking. With a Trad haircut and outfit he could be an investment banker.

    Just goes to show - clothing is costume.

    He looks great, like he's ready to go Travis Bickle on the whole damn city.

    Looks good. Travis Bickle came to my mind too. However, I doubt that Travis Bickle ever wore Rag & Bone, and I'm pretty sure that this guy's jacket is (or is a very decent H&M rip off of).

    In school this guy was once asked to write an essay about confidence. He submitted a picture of himself, he got an A+.
