he's looks very cool!nice
June 27, 2010 at 5:33 pm
Sorry Scott, not a look I like very much on a man, the shorts look too much like a skirt (a kilt look I love though.)
June 27, 2010 at 5:35 pm
The hair is my favourite part.
June 27, 2010 at 5:36 pm
So chic! Love the monochrome.xxx
June 27, 2010 at 5:39 pm
I love his attitude ! So chic .

so fun! the short looks like a skirt! stylish! But, is he really french? it's so rare to see French people like this!
June 27, 2010 at 5:48 pm
what a dream
June 27, 2010 at 5:52 pm
très intéressant. I normally adore black and white anything, but I think I'd like this look even better if the shorts were cut closer to the body.
Woa! Every detail is so right: from head to toe, literary! The haircut and the shave, the white chrispy shirt and the shorts, the black socks and the withe not very strict shoes!!! I like it very much. Elegant and sporty and free…P.S. – well, the sigarette might go…
June 27, 2010 at 5:59 pm
Very original and fresh, but this shoes… Noooo! Like in small town in my Poland ;-)
June 27, 2010 at 6:01 pm
June 27, 2010 at 6:02 pm
His hair is my favourite part. I do like his shoes, though. Frankly, I think the shorts resemble a kilt just a little too much, although I'm a fan of the widely cut short in general.
So. Cool.Hah, the cigarette is really funtioning as the finishing touch. Perfect!
June 27, 2010 at 6:23 pm
Wow. Fair play for courage. I can't say I'm crazy about it, but I think that may be because it reminds me of Elizabethan mens' wear (the silhouette of the 'shorts'), and that era just doesn't sit comfortably with me.
June 27, 2010 at 6:28 pm
I find it very difficult to take this fellow seriously, despite his frowning countenance.
Maybe it's the hair?
June 27, 2010 at 6:35 pm

<3 shaved legs
His shorts are perfect – I love the silhouette

amazing how his look is so feminine but yet he seems so masculine.quite an impressive chap
June 27, 2010 at 7:00 pm
love it ¡¡¡is hot as the skinny jeans
June 27, 2010 at 7:03 pm
I agree, if it were a kilt, I would love it but the shorts are too skirty for my taste.
Other than that , muy bien ~ !
that was awesome looks, so perfect
June 27, 2010 at 7:08 pm
i love those shorts :)
June 27, 2010 at 7:43 pm
The proportions of his hair, sleeve rolls, and socks really put this look together.
June 27, 2010 at 8:05 pm
It's cool styling.
June 27, 2010 at 8:13 pm
almost the little black dress not.
June 27, 2010 at 8:34 pm
love those wide shorts, saw the look on the Prada 2011 runway.
June 27, 2010 at 8:55 pm
Love him. Even the shoe laces are laced in a cool way. Serious OCD..but original/
June 27, 2010 at 8:56 pm
at the moment i saw him i thought "gaultier 80's", don't know how…
June 27, 2010 at 8:58 pm
I agree that it looks very feminine yet masculine at the same time. Hard to do.
the shapes in this look are great!
June 27, 2010 at 9:08 pm
digging it! crisp white shirt, dark shades, pretty hair, sharp beard trim, smokes, shoes, pants/skirt. perfect!
June 27, 2010 at 9:09 pm
June 27, 2010 at 9:22 pm
omg! this is so cool!
June 27, 2010 at 9:24 pm
Cool. I am enjoying this photo!
June 27, 2010 at 9:27 pm
June 27, 2010 at 9:46 pm
I'm not sure the wide shorts are a good idea on a man as petite looking as he is. As a 4'11" woman, I know when to avoid stump-inducing silhouettes and this is STUMPTASTIC.
But his beautiful shirt and shoes and hair made me forget all about the shorts in the end.
June 27, 2010 at 9:52 pm
Ah, straight from the runway… and so soon! Not sure how crazy I am about the giant shorts thing.
June 27, 2010 at 10:02 pm
i love a good white shirt… its all about the cut and the material
June 27, 2010 at 10:08 pm
Loved the look as I scrolled down, especially his hair and crisp shirt. But I got to the shorts and just lost interest. Something tells me this will be a look that people either love or loathe…no middle ground. I was so hoping to see narrow trousers, maybe even cropped a bit, but not those wide shorts.
June 27, 2010 at 10:13 pm
I thought that was a kilt at first. I like the look of his crisp white shirt for summer.
June 27, 2010 at 10:21 pm
Wow..classic and unique.. love the looks..

June 27, 2010 at 10:31 pm
This man is cool in a way that is intimidating! But I do have to say…my favorite part is the way he accessorizes his face with his choice of beard shape and hair cut. Very fierce!
this short is about the next big think.. i saw it in prada.. looovez it!
I FEEL PITHY

Cool shorts :)Love that its wide like almost skirt.
June 27, 2010 at 11:35 pm
I really love it when boys can dressed nicely!It is so rare these days to find boys like this, especially in my place, Bali, where most people only wear tshirts and shorts every single day…
June 27, 2010 at 11:54 pm
So, so, so right!
June 27, 2010 at 11:58 pm
i wish my hair was as obedient! the shades and the crisp white, buttoned up shirt are so inherently cool looking.
love the look from the shorts up- I'm just not digging the skort, version 2.0.
June 28, 2010 at 12:04 am
I love that his shorts look like he is wearing a skirt. That is a trend I look forward to catching on with men. Also it looks like this guy shaves his legs. Why not? I love his look!
June 28, 2010 at 12:39 am
oh no he didn't!
June 28, 2010 at 12:47 am
Great style..Love it.LOx
June 28, 2010 at 12:56 am
June 28, 2010 at 1:21 am
very Marc Jacobs, he looks very elegant with the skirt actually, a sort of japanese feeling to the look
June 28, 2010 at 1:24 am
Reminds me of Bill Cunningham's On The Street video this past week. Nice.
June 28, 2010 at 1:56 am
So basic but yet so Amazing !
June 28, 2010 at 2:04 am
Ooo la la…Very different. I would think that Mr. Beckham would try this look xx
June 28, 2010 at 2:08 am
This hat / hair?! Look very nice … when are you coming to Geneva?
June 28, 2010 at 2:42 am
oh tu te rapproches de chez moi!j'aimerais tellement te croiser dans une rue!
June 28, 2010 at 2:53 am
He looks good and I'm so in love with his shoes but why did he use to shave his legs? They look like meat carrots.
But hey, his style is great!
June 28, 2010 at 2:59 am
i love that shirt buttoned all the way up!!! the wide shorts gave it some kind of quirk too!
June 28, 2010 at 3:01 am
Errr–Uhhh… Not sure wearing clothes that make one uptight (or take oneself too seriously), is ever a good idea.
Honestly, at first glance, I thought the hair was a French beret!
But the white shirt is elegant. And rolled-up sleeves are always preferable to a short-sleeved dress shirt.
luv it!! this inspires me
June 28, 2010 at 3:18 am
Love how he plays with the gender norms! Really excited to see this. He's got it going on, and he's hot :)
June 28, 2010 at 3:19 am
Ah–I thought it WAS a skirt. I would like it *slightly* more if it in fact was. Still great though :)
June 28, 2010 at 3:31 am
Oh no, I am sorry. Still can't get over this: guy wearing a type of skirt-thing. Disagree on the hair too. This a look that will soon be forgotten. Or so I hope…
June 28, 2010 at 4:14 am
I don't like this look so much but he's incredible without doubts!
June 28, 2010 at 4:58 am
Wahou, il est magnifique !Bisous, bisous, Alizée G.http://alizee-gaie.blogspot.com
June 28, 2010 at 5:23 am
I love this style…nice pict
June 28, 2010 at 5:24 am
how cool is that?? I love men wearing other stuff than the normal one. More people should dare to be different.
June 28, 2010 at 5:42 am
Absolutely love his hair, I wonder if he goes to an old fashioned barber shop to get it done? http://www.salonbusiness.co.uk/pages/case-studies/back-in-barberstyle
June 28, 2010 at 5:54 am
Can't resist man in a skirt!
June 28, 2010 at 6:01 am
i hate almots everything about this one. from the super camp haircut and shave to the attitude. From the buttoned up shirt to the skirt (everyone seems to think these are shorts, i just see a skirt), to the cigarette, the shaved legs and those stupid shoes. He looks like a total ass.

June 28, 2010 at 6:04 am
Not for me bur i like it.I love so much black & white.I'm never tired of these combination.
June 28, 2010 at 6:10 am
The way he holds the cigarette completes the look beautifully!
June 28, 2010 at 6:30 am
I just… love it. I won't dissect my reasons for loving it, I just do. Unconditionally. Madly. Oh, the simplicity and the sublime coolness.
s t y l i s h m u s e
June 28, 2010 at 6:47 am
He could be a younger version of Karl Lagerfeld. Although his look seems perfect (everything is in black or white) there's something missing.
June 28, 2010 at 6:55 am
really great look, but shoes… naaan
June 28, 2010 at 8:04 am
June 28, 2010 at 8:27 am
His collar is so perfectly standing and neatly buttoned up–I love it. :D
June 28, 2010 at 8:30 am
Loathe. Totally "stumptastic" (love that!) but it's the combination of uptight collar button with bare legs that I hate. It's like it's business up top, casual at the bottom. So of the moment I missed it (but I'm not sorry).
June 28, 2010 at 9:11 am
Yep, I think he's great. Glad that some men push the boundaries–not that it's pushed very far here–classic black and white, standard nice shirt, shorts, wayfarers–that's all very mainstream.
The only push I see is the width and cut of the shorts–but this could be the angle of the photo. I am sure some of the old African safari movies from maybe the 40s/50s? had men wearing very wide skirt-like safari shorts.
Shaved/waxed legs and bodies are the go these days with many boys in school here in Sydney–it doesn't seem new or strange anymore. It depends on what look you're trying to achieve or what look your "born with".
The only thing I'd throw out is the siggy–for such a refined crisp look the smell would not work.
Fashion, Art and other fancies
June 28, 2010 at 9:18 am
The epitome of the modern French dandy! The shorts are a big surprise for the eyes. After that crisp white shirt the viewer expects trousers, not shorts.Excellent element of surprise!That is what fashion is all about;)
June 28, 2010 at 9:34 am
hi from Italyjust when the picture is loading in parts starting from the down it seems lik a girl picture, with the legs that didn't show any fuzziness that can be seen.Then othe half upper image it is a boy as usual.So i guess it is a picture 50% woman and 50% man: personally i does not know many men that shave their legs. Overall a hurting image done with majestic touch!
June 28, 2010 at 9:35 am
Love…. from the neck up
June 28, 2010 at 9:40 am
Exudes tight control without the quality of being uptight, (though a bit of the Japanese school girl with those socks wore like that).
June 28, 2010 at 10:14 am
lol … I showed this photo to a friend and said What do you think ?He said why is he wearing an apron ? lol .. Those shorts just don't cut it .I have now decided I am not loving the little white shoes either.
i like this look, but if the shorts were maybe chino shorts the look would be better. i have looked for crisp white shirts everywhere with no luck. dont get me wrong i have found some, but i feel as if i get the schoolboy look instead of classic and chic. anyone haves any suggestins of where he got that? thanks
June 28, 2010 at 10:19 am
I really love it!!!
June 28, 2010 at 10:28 am
He looks like those bossy girls who would knock you over in gym in high school.
June 28, 2010 at 11:00 am
why boys should be allowed to wear skirts to school.
June 28, 2010 at 12:09 pm
Super cool. Like others I love the play on masculine/feminine. Paris really is the epicenter of style and creativity.
June 28, 2010 at 1:03 pm
It doesn't work for me. It's to much of a hard work. He spent to much time creating his style and it doesn't look natural. I love the black and white, but the serious face is to hard for me, as well as the realy too graphic outfit. It's certainly different (though I see a few other men with the same kind of style at the moment in Paris), but I don't like the attitude.
Yet, I understand that you chose to make a picture of him as he definitly stands out.
June 28, 2010 at 1:41 pm
I guess it's good, the French avant garde thing going on. I have a problem with men who button up their shirts all the way to the top, I wish he'd unbutton a couple.
June 28, 2010 at 2:33 pm
Awesome shot, for some reason he reminds me of a better version of Keanu Reeves (^_^)
June 28, 2010 at 2:58 pm
for me, he will look better without socks
June 28, 2010 at 3:05 pm
Above the waist: yes. Below the knees: yes. I'm not sure what I think about the introduction of this baggy-short thing. It's apparently coming into high fashion, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the best idea anyone has ever come up with.
June 28, 2010 at 3:32 pm
This look is so cute until you get to the shoes. They mess up the look to me. Cool concept though.
June 28, 2010 at 4:54 pm
I must say that I am not feeling this look…it seems too avant-garde. Its message to the world is: don't come near me…too studied, too much of a winking reference to other fashion people.
June 28, 2010 at 5:06 pm
He has the Marc Jacobs thing going.
June 28, 2010 at 5:36 pm
Can anyone tell me what wayfarers model he is wearing because I'm confused.It looks like the 2140 901 but the down edges are bit squared whereas the ones I've bought are more rounded!
June 28, 2010 at 7:57 pm
I'll take Milano – with a dash of sex.
June 28, 2010 at 8:16 pm
If not for that tiny little dot of light in the middle, I'd have thought "dude in skirt". Instead, I'm thinking "dude in coulottes"…
June 28, 2010 at 11:18 pm
attitude as accessory. maybe he's trying to make up for the silhouette
June 28, 2010 at 11:47 pm
I love the wide shorts and the shirt. Shorts X kilt= Skolts? Shilts? Sholts? I liked the ones Prada presented. Dislike the shoes and silly 80's hair.
hah! Love it. Very interesting, brave without having to do the actual deed of wearing a skirt (you know, just in case it's windy) Very cool.
June 29, 2010 at 1:51 am
Wish he were wearing a utilikilt an inch or two longer than those shorts… but I love the way he's playing the severe (hair, shirt, black-and-white) off the silly (goofy shoes and socks, defuzzed calves).
June 29, 2010 at 2:03 am
The Marc Jacobs effect !
June 29, 2010 at 2:25 am
love the simplicty
June 29, 2010 at 2:27 am
I've been reflecting on the presence of people smoking in your pictures for a while, only now do I feel like commenting, as I find it really bothersome.It's not the fact that people are smoking that bothers me, but rather that it contributes to the never ending idea that smoking equals being stylish.Somehow the pictures tend to portray the cigarette as a fashion accessory, as if it were a hat or a scarf, and it's kind of twisted. Showing someone smoking in a movie is very different from portraying someone smoking in a fashion magazine or on a blog like yours.
I'm well aware that the people you meet on the street have a life of their own and do what they please, and that you choose to depict them as they are, but by showing them holding a cigarette while describing their amazing style, I feel like it conveys the wrong message.
The fact is that smoking isn't cool and whether you like it or not, what you show your readers has an effect on how they act live their lives.
June 29, 2010 at 3:15 am
he's actually greek and he's actually incredibly stylish at all times! oh and he's the nicest guy ever! :)
June 29, 2010 at 3:17 am
Aw soory,I felt he look like stranger><but he is so lovely!
June 29, 2010 at 4:06 am
is this a skirt or a pair of short pants? But regardless, love this look, it's kind of smart and at the same time there is a sophisticated vibe there.
June 29, 2010 at 4:09 am
This looks very self-conscious.
June 29, 2010 at 5:06 am
his style and attitude are so cool
June 29, 2010 at 6:27 am
Sorry, but this is a 'thumbs down' case for me. Too much effort, too much 'arrangement'. And this icy expression…nah! I'd love to see a more playful version of it. A little bit of wit…

June 29, 2010 at 4:37 pm
sockless being the trend, i'm glad he thought otherwise.
June 29, 2010 at 4:46 pm
He's too cool for school! ya dig?
June 30, 2010 at 1:39 am
It looks like he donned his little sister's school uniform. Truly terrible imo.
June 30, 2010 at 3:32 am
Sart, i'm going to tailor tomorrow to get myself the same short he was wearing (only i want a shorter version). Thanks to keep giving me inspirations ;)
June 30, 2010 at 3:50 am
No thank you. I hope this skirty shorts for men look doesn't make it across the pond. It's unnerving! Shoes seem ok, shirt is meh, hair is gross. Who holds their cigarette like that?
June 30, 2010 at 5:55 pm
I'm not prepared for skirts
July 1, 2010 at 5:37 am
Oh for God's Sake! And that goes for most of the above guys… :(
July 1, 2010 at 12:01 pm
Ditto with "anonymous said"– this is a silly outfit and the haircut is ridiculous, I would never take someone seriously with a beret hair style. So tired of people that compensate with a "look at me" getup in place of a real fashion sense
July 1, 2010 at 1:55 pm
Wow, way out there! Bombay britches, got to love them. He is very 80's, a continuing theme for months now. Either this, or my head has been in the proverbial sand and we have been revisiting the 80's for the past three seasons. Even though monochromatic is MY THING I think this guy is a bit too extreme. He is too pale to be wearing such a starkly white shirt and the same with the britches. He needs a bit of color somewhere. The whole thing is pale instead of crisp which is probably what he was going for.
July 1, 2010 at 6:32 pm
Very "precious." Not cute at all.
July 2, 2010 at 5:35 pm

THAT is courage. I love it.
July 3, 2010 at 10:04 am
This is so edgy! I positively died when i saw this! I think,however, without the cigarette and blank expression the look would be highly over-stated.
July 4, 2010 at 10:53 am
Photo-worthy but, no, no, no.
I have a photo of my grandmother in that outfit circa 1937.

I say,The emphasis of a barber school's education is to teach the essentials of providing hair and skin services for men. They often learn to perform razor styling, hair cutting and coloring, blow drying, foam shaves, steam facials, and facial massages.Using a good hair salon is key to great hair care. But how do you select the right hair salon from the many choices available?You can do to guarantee that you always receive the best hair cuts, latest professional techniques and stellar service is to choose the right hair salon. Granted, that is easier said than done. With hair salons on practically every street corner, narrowing down your options to find the right salon can be confusing. http://kisnersbarbersalon.com

I notice that you do take photos with smokers, in the act of smoking. It's true that there is an understood element of glamour or je ne sais pas about a cigarette, perhaps, I think because of the way it makes the hand contort, or force the forearm or arm into a pose, but surely we can learn to see a smokeless world?
I think here it detracts from the purity of form. Pity, because the pleated short and perfectly parted hair is such a striking force in this pic.
You bring the whole world to people.
