#343 Auckland Uni students street style

How's that for a tongue twister? I just went for a walk into town (something I don't think I've ever done since living in my current house) to drop off a disc of images for an article I wrote last week. On the way I dropped by Auckland Uni to have a look at the students of our city. I spend a lot of time on my computer everyday so it's not often I get out there into the real world (it'd be fair to say I live my life virtually most of the time). I was walking along by the Quad when I came across the guy above. He really stood out against the sea of jandals, beer tee shirts and trackpants.

His name is Matt and he's from Korea.

I can't say I really like the look - it makes him appear bland and androgynous. But, it's Auckland! So, of course, his outfit had to be predominately black in order to get anyone's attention! LOL! ;)

Certainly more interesting than what I'm seeing at Canterbury Uni where the style is unimaginative and lacking in any personal expression. Disappointing really and very dull.

He's fab, i'd like to bump into Matt from Korea. You are so right about the sea of jandals, beer t-shirts and tracksuits, oh and you forgot leggings as pants. Get efffffed all you sloppy students, everyone knows dressing up stimulates the brain more.

Korean guys' clothing seems to have the best fit/fall. I've been photographing them in Melbourne.
