The uttermost originality and outrageous sense of style of young Japanese lads can suprise even... me!
And I'm not talking about runways and high-end fashion shows here, but about everyday, street-styles, specially around the youthful, happening Tokyo quartier of Harajuku.
Just take a look at these teenage, street-smart Japanese fashion-shoguns!
This guy's black furry hat, grossly oversized jacket and drop-crotch pants definitely caught my attention as I browsed thorugh Tokyo Fashion News, one of my favorite blogs.
And I'd simply steal his rings if I had a chance!
What I liked the most about Amuca, a 24-year-old fan of a local dark punk band, is his makeup, together with his platinum-blonde hair.
I don't care too much about his many piercings and forked tougue,... but I do love his skinny pants!
Otamase displays an unreproducible, hand-made, colorful style: the sleeves for his jacket were made out of pants! Anyways.... it all works fine with his black leggings and Reebok sneakers.
You can follow his tweets.
Another street-fashion blog I follow closely is Japanese Streets, which has just published this pic of Naomichi Munakata, a young student who wears his coat in such a way that it looks like an over-skirt or kilt.
Ken Uchizumi, a 20 year old student, is also waering a furry hat, together with a beautiful Number Nine Sweater and extra-broad Nozomi Ishiguro pants.

Iccho is a fashion blogger who's seemingly loves to wear his shirts as Schottish kilts.
But what I find particularly enjoyable are his platform sandals!
