White shoes, floppy hats, and splashes of color are popular nowadays in Kobe. While walking around the city, I spotted this guy in a 70s-inspired, workwear Bohemian look. He had on a wide-brimmed hat, U-neck tee, skinny jeans, and pointy slip-on boots. The combo felt like as aggregate of a lot of hyped brands at the moment – Saint Laurent, Visvim, John Elliott, etc. Probably not for the average PTO reader, but it worked for him.
This man was wearing tan trousers, a red shirt with contrasting cuffs, and a straw hat. Last year, a lot of people were wearing white sneakers, but I’ve been seeing more white leather shoes lately (e.g. loafers in particular being popular with both men and women). The hat on this gentlemen was slightly too big for him, while his shirt and trousers a little too small, but the colors and materials balanced really well.
Perhaps my favorite of the three, this man had white slip-ons, floral shorts, and a tailored jacket. Leather ankle bracelet was a bold move, but I suppose if you’re going to do something eccentric, it should be in the summertime.
