The War Of The Roses

One girl, one guy – both wearing floral print shirts and skinny black jeans, both spotted the same day on the street in NYC. Her whole outfit is totally cute (check out her minty green canvas lace-ups with metallic gold soles), but he’s toughened up his floral with a nice black leather jacket…and he gets points for not perpetrating a mod/60’s/Carnaby Street look – generally the default look for any man attempting to wear floral fabric. I think this calls for a floral shirt throwdown…so tell me…who do you think is rocking this look the best?? Be nice, this isn’t Vice… x eddie

  • I love the guys leather jacket, i’ve been wanting to get a leather jacket for a while, but I don’t have the funds for one. But I will soon, I just know it. Keep up the good work Eddie. I discovered your site yesterday morning. It was love at first site.

  • Personally I like the guys ensemble the best but only
    because that is most likely how I would wear a floral shirt?
    The skinny jeans are really skinny but fit his body to a tee and the leather jacket is the perfect balance or foil (for the top)

    They’re both fab, but she wins for me because of the g r e a t shoes.

  • Oh to have a bod that could wear those tight jeans again after 50 years……sweet.

  • I discovered your site a long time ago but I never let you a comment again.I’m french and I really like your site because It permits me to see what Americans wear and how.
    Anyway,I prefer the guy because of the shirt’s form which is really not nice for the girl BUT I like her green choes 🙂

    PS:Sorry for my english which is to improve a lot!

  • Look – this girl’s outfit is adorable…but I think the guy is rocking it better as well. I mean, he looks really cool and even a bit rough around the edges…and he’s wearing a floral print…how does he do it?! The boots, jeans, belt, leather jacket, and even the mustache all contribute greatly. This is why they use stylists (and conduct model castings) for runway shows – they hand them a guy’s floral shirt and say – “What should we do with this?”
