This week, we're doing Street Scenes a little differently. Each shot was selected by Racked commenter MPW, who spent a day last week roaming the city with photographer Daniel Krieger. Today's subject is Sean of website The Impossible Cool, shot on Prince Street between Mulberry and Mott. Feel free to vote on whether you like or dislike his outfit below. Your choices are 'Perfection!,' 'So close,' 'I feel strangely ambivalent about it,' or 'Who did this to you?'

MPW says: I was drawn to Sean's impeccably neat but sporty and unfussy look. The jacket fits him perfectly, and the six buttons, along with the chest and flap pockets, are nice details that make it more special than the standard sport coat. I also like the contrast of the rugged boots with the crisp denim. He's wisely invested in some well-made, classic pieces and looks great in them.
