To Celebrate Fashion Week at Lincoln Center

Young guys get away with murder. Did this Lincoln Square Starbucks patron deliberately mismatch his socks? Is the LEGO backpack ironic? None of the colors he chose (or did not choose) relate well. The hat is an odd hybrid of military/engineer with a preppy tan band. The beard/sideburns are hesitant. The whole composition works because it appears to be careless, although he may have spent significant time making it look that way. It also works only because he is young and cute. His day will come when he will be forced to match his socks before appearing in public. I'd say he has another ten years until that day arrives.
