Admit it. Men in jeans who wear an apron are hot. Japanese denim brand Factotum seems to think so, too, and it’s highlighted in their Autumn-Winter 2011 lookbook. Inspired by “Caf? Time,” you get more than a hint of the often beguiling allure of the caf? busboy, or the handsome stranger who might be seated alone nearby. Is he a regular, or is he just passing through? Well, at least he makes an impression.
Sometimes, that handsome stranger is a rocker. Sometimes, he’s this preppy guy. But is he ever the dude bold enough to make a statement in polka dot jeans, as proposed by Factotum Denim? Are you that man? Layer in a Japanese robe; make sure your shirt or overcoat collars are a bit sloppy looking, and you’ll be rockin’ Japanese street fashion.
