in today: the male beret



this picture is from thursday morning, at around 8:30am down on Pender Street. Obviously, this kind man was on his way to work. I don't know what his profession is, but by his outfit, I would assume poet. When I told him the picture would be for a street fashion photo blog, he asked me for the link so he could get his kids to check it out. i can just imagine him giving his kids my little card, and saying "see kids, you're dad IS a cool guy" and they would roll their eyes. but little do they know that their dad is a fashion maven.

in fact, i'm seeing more and more men wearing berets. maybe its because i've never really been so attentive of what people are wearing, as i am now. Nevertheless, on thursday, he was the first of three male beret's i saw. I think the beret is definitely a hard item for a guy to pull off, it can just as easily look totally wrong, as it does looking totally right in this picture. i definitely think though, that the male beret should be kept for the mature man, because it gives a sense of wisdom or creativity that no twenty-something could ever live up to.

Wow some commenters on this site are vicious *rawr* That said, I love the marriage of quirky and classic in this outfit. The beret is a nice touch. I have a couple myself that need some wearing...

I agree, the barret might look silly me now but when I'm 50 I can rock one with style:)

something to look forward to in old age

I was at a gas station one afternoon, and saw this Asian couple drive by. They were in their 50-60's, and they were wearing matching berets. It made me smile.

Looks very nice. A real example of good taste. Where can I buy this kind of berets in Vancouver? I am really interested!
Thanks!

I totally agree with u.
Beret gives him a sense of wisdom or creativity, which makes him look like a poet or an artist.

He is so handsome!!!
