Teddy Kennedy from the waist up…Hansel (from Hansel and Gretel) from the waist down.
This picture should be cropped from waist down. The pants are interesting at best but he loses points for wearing those old Reebok walking shoes. Gross.
It would have been nice to see him wearing a pair of old 501s, red socks and a pair of beat up wing-tips or monk-straps. But that’s just me…

Those trousers look like survivors of a couple revolutions – American & French. They deserve a proper burial.

It looks like his right shoe is an orthotic riser, to even out different-length legs. So, like, I’m not sure florsheim can provide that option. Though I’m not sure they can’t, either.

These are classic Austrian leatherhosen, work looks a lot like Peter Ahamer from the Salzkammergut. The raised embroidery means they are entirely handmade and have taken a long time to be made. These are passed on from one generation to the next. Unlike Raw denim these take a good twenty years to wear in, on the other hand the crotch doesnt blow out after a year or two.

Hello, I just stumbled across your blog for the first time. You have a great eye for spotting interesting details and beautiful character all around you – including that which is not conventionally fashionable or “of the moment”, or even that interesting overall. It’s refreshing and inspiring to see what you’re doing. Bravo and thanks very much for sharing.
I’m off to look throough all of your stuff right back to the begining.

Giving a smile away takes so little effort and time, let’s make sure that we’ve not the one that others have to pretend is wearing an invisible smile.
