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.
