This photo popped up on my tumblroblogdashboard this past weekend and has since stuck with me. With the help of Google image search’s reverse look up I was able to track down the original source of the photo to find the subject as John Brown of Oi Polloi whose face I then recalled seeing in the never ending Deck Out look book.
Mr. Brown is, for lack of better words, killing it: waxed jacket, well-fitting chinos, and a pair of Quoddy moccasins. Oh, and of course the bike (which from the “M” on the downtube leads me to believe is a Mercian) is fitted with full fenders, a leather saddle, and leather bar tape. It’s not often I come across a street style photo where the person’s bike actually reflects the owners style but here you have it.
