This guy’s shirt caught my eye in Insadong this afternoon. It’s decked out in gold, Old World imagery – carriages, ropes, tassels – and cut like a folded-over rectangle with holes poked out for the head and limbs.
There’s something revolutionary about a man a wearing gaudy silk print shirt, especially paired with drop crotch pants and silver Birkenstocks. It’s a feminine look that brings to mind luxurious Italian housewives and church lady scarves, but the the right kind of man can make it seem completely natural.

Unfortunately, unless you have $500 to spare on pants that will probably out of style next summer, you probably can’t relish in the glory of Junya with this trend. But luckily retailers are offering versions of the look for less. The Gap, for example, has created Junya-inspired shorts in various styles.
The look is majorly trending on the streets of Seoul. I saw this guy last week in Hongdae sporting a version of the patterned, lined trousers. I would have probably styled them differently, perhaps echoing the nautical theme of Junya’s S/S 11 show, but maybe I should just get a pair of my own.
