Firstly, I’d like to thank the amazing and wonderful Tara O'Brien for drawing this gorgeous piece for me and the gq. I highly recommend her for commissions!
Second, this is my top-surgery commemoration present for the gq. It is only ONE WEEK until he goes under for surgery, and I wanted to have a lasting gift that we would always remember.
[Image is of two mermaids and a sea turtle, with the words “I’ve found a home in my shell” at the bottom. One mermaid is white, fat, and blonde. The second is white, red haired, and has top surgery scars.]
Can someone explain to me how this is something a homeless man might wear?
The suit is well cut, probably British style, with a notch lapel, and the shirt looks like a dress shirt or a henley in white or beige. And he’s wearing a knitted cap with the ensemble, which, while not something GQ would recommend, is perfectly acceptable.
Now, take a long hard look at this picture and think about why the first association you had was “homeless man"
