Generally the sight of scaffolding being newly erected around a building on your beat or, worse, your own building is accompanied with no undue trepidation. Not only is all that impermanent steel and plywood unsightly, but it typically comes with no discernible expiration date for removal. Nevertheless scaffolding is worth celebrating in some rare instances such as a Banksy bombing or much closer to home the latest editorial appearance by Ford Men’s Eric Watts in Hero 4 Winter/Spring 10/11 photographed by Nacho Alegre. Set against a backdrop of the temporary structures in a story styled by Nicolas Klam the Nassau County native is pictured wearing the sort of suede cowhide leather and denim work gloves germane to any construction site as well as some other pieces that clearly are not such as a chunky knit sweater by Lanvin, Marc Jacobs denim jeans, and sheepskin perfecto by Burberry Prorsum. Rough and refined, high and low, Eric effortlessly ties together these two styling extremes and adds to his ever expanding portfolio following recent appearances in Vogue Hommes Japan photographed not once, but twice by Brett Lloyd. So long as scaffolding comes with Eric Watts we have no doubt readers will welcome its erection.
