Everyone is a bit bemused by this guy's barmy street style interview

Samuel David Hains, a “web developer, mystery blogger and jazz kitten”, was recently featured in the Sydney Morning Herald's street style section.

And the resulting interview has gone viral - for Samuel's… unique fashion philosophy.

Here he is going through his pictured outfit - there's a lot going on, perhaps more than you would imagine:

"Osh Kosh B’Gosh overalls I found in a vintage store in Tokyo, a beret given to me by my dear uncle, a black turtleneck from Uniqlo, a tote bag by my favourite feminist provocateurs Ladies of Leisure that says ‘Feeling Myself’ because self-love is underrated, and my shoes are Nike."

Describing his style as "bucolic socialist with improvised elements (like jazz)", the Melbourne native also sometimes wears "something random, like a lab coat!".


But what wouldn't this jazz kitten wear?

"I would never be caught dead in neo-hippie "bush-doof" couture, a small, inefficient beanie, or anything less than extraordinary."

Can he be real?

Whatever your thoughts, you can't argue that Samuel is living his best life.

You do you, kid!
