hmm.. is that a safety pin.. love what he’s wearing.
The safety-pin provides an interesting, diverging, take on the outfits formality…
March 5, 2009 at 6:02 pm
Perfect. I wonder what hair product he’s using?
is that a kilt pin in his jacket? genius!great hair too.
March 5, 2009 at 6:06 pm
Normally I don’t comment on menswear, but this is just too perfect to pass up! I love, love, love it!

Very chic. He looks like a character from “Twilight”.
March 5, 2009 at 6:17 pm
Really really nice.

I loved the safety pinned YSL pieces!!
March 5, 2009 at 6:35 pm
perfect hair.also the oversized safety pin on the blazer is amazing.
March 5, 2009 at 6:47 pm
beautiful boy! I love the hair and the whole outfit looking very casual and very schoolboy.
March 5, 2009 at 6:50 pm
you can never go wrong with a classic look. who’s this guy btw?
March 5, 2009 at 7:18 pm
Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but the cigarettes just ruin it for me…

The current super haircut … I found this interesting hook in the coat …
March 5, 2009 at 7:54 pm
I adore the nappy pin detail, it really works here and the sweater underneath… perfect.
March 5, 2009 at 7:58 pm
he looks like a prince..

March 5, 2009 at 8:15 pm
he’s so sharply dressed an A+ look.
i like those black boots, a lot.
come see me-http://noirblancetrougepartout.blogspot.com/
March 5, 2009 at 8:19 pm
love the coatwould like to see some color though
March 5, 2009 at 8:26 pm
Wow. That pin just make the whole look. Accessories people! ;) Bob-LA
March 5, 2009 at 8:30 pm
1st thought: is that a safety pin?2nd thought: bravo to whoever fit his suit.
clean, sharp, architectural: the perfect menswear equation?
March 5, 2009 at 8:33 pm
i concur, i LOVE the kilt pin fastening his coat together! I have never seen it done like that before…very classic!
March 5, 2009 at 8:44 pm
What a sweet little face! Watch that ciggy! that poor girl looks flammable!
Dan, he’s probably using a matte pomade like American Crew Fiber.
March 5, 2009 at 9:00 pm
that’s one definition of corporate.
March 5, 2009 at 9:10 pm
I love it…the safety pin is a good special
March 5, 2009 at 9:17 pm
i love this simple and classic look. and he’s a cute guy. :]
March 5, 2009 at 9:21 pm
yes i agree!the collar on that jacket looks so good turned up… who’da thunk?!whose pieces are they?
March 5, 2009 at 9:23 pm
I just chopped my side part off. Don’t tell me it’s coming back in again!
March 5, 2009 at 9:25 pm
Yea he looks like Dr Cullens.
March 5, 2009 at 9:27 pm
Adore this outfit, it’s sleek, retro, and modern all at once. His side part is adorable, I also love the fit of his jacket and the pin (if that’s what it is). Detest the cig though.
March 5, 2009 at 9:30 pm
VERY stylish. I love side-parted hair for some reason and i CANNOT rave enough about the jacket. The guy himself looks really young, and if I just saw his face, I would think he’s in high school, which i guess is a good thing (I’m in high school, too)…

March 5, 2009 at 11:13 pm
Is that a safety pin he has? It looks great on that jacket. Love the hair also, maybe I should leave mine like that.
March 5, 2009 at 11:51 pm
The only thing that makes this interesting to me is how his jacket is fastened.
March 6, 2009 at 12:09 am
That is a very sharp dressed man!
March 6, 2009 at 12:32 am
And he’s 17. SEVENTEEN!
March 6, 2009 at 1:34 am
This is great, very sleek and somehow still relaxed. Love the pin.
March 6, 2009 at 1:45 am
He has the demeaner of a young James Cagney from a black and white movie waiting to be made. Awesome.zazzle.com/alloamora
he looks fantastic
March 6, 2009 at 1:51 am
Totally obsessed with that safety pin.
March 6, 2009 at 3:59 am
I have to agree with anonymous 7:18pm but this is a very cool look!
March 6, 2009 at 4:00 am
Wow! Who’s this young man?
March 6, 2009 at 4:22 am
i was about to say he looks swedish, so thanks Niklas for confirming! The pin makes the outfit interesting.
March 6, 2009 at 5:18 am
Where did he find such a nice coat ? I’m jealous.
March 6, 2009 at 5:52 am
honestly now, the fact that he is 17 ruins the whole picture…this isn’t a suit for a school boy…
March 6, 2009 at 7:04 am
Great suit, great safety pin. But it is all a bit too neat and clean. Makes him look a bit like a schoolboy.
March 6, 2009 at 8:23 am
His coat is amazing, but the look is almost ruined by the safety pin. It reeks of trying too hard to be different.
March 6, 2009 at 9:26 am
I LOVE the kilt pin. LOVE it.

March 6, 2009 at 10:07 am
I think I am having a Sartorialist obession. The photos make my day, great images on style.com as well. lovele la Moda.com
March 6, 2009 at 11:23 am
I can’t believe nobody commented on the pockets on the suit. They make the suit have that modern/retro edge. Love the pin although its not the first time he’s done this kilt pin on a suit.
March 6, 2009 at 12:38 pm
This is too contrived, too “home made”. Adding a safety pin doesn’t make the outfit any less trite, in my opinion. Uninteresting briefcase, too.
March 6, 2009 at 1:28 pm
March 6, 2009 at 2:13 pm
March 6, 2009 at 2:57 pm
Very sharp. I really like the contrast between his youthful face and the professional outfit, haricut and portfolio. And the safety pin injects some youth and fun into the outfit so that he doesn’t look either too severe for his age or like he’s wearing Daddy’s suit.
In the props to Sart on the photo portion of the comment, I love how he’s standing in conversation with the girl, but he’s looking a little warily at the camera. Also great how her muted color palette compliments his muted color palette. And the overall gray tones of your outdoor shots today are great (although they make me shiver a little in sympathy with the cold).
March 6, 2009 at 2:58 pm
Very handsome, indeed.
March 6, 2009 at 3:14 pm
as someone said clean and simple
…and the pants are interesting too but the pin steals the spotlight!
March 6, 2009 at 3:45 pm
The safety pin shows that the suit jacket is too small.
March 6, 2009 at 4:27 pm
March 6, 2009 at 4:38 pm
Too perfeckt, sorry, no go.. sorry again…
March 6, 2009 at 5:19 pm
March 6, 2009 at 6:14 pm
…Pin closing the jacket is new to me. f–king great hair. He’s 17, no shit?
March 6, 2009 at 8:41 pm
Did I just find my dream man?
Is he really seventeen? Says who?
March 6, 2009 at 10:02 pm
LOVE the safety pin!! Genius.
March 6, 2009 at 11:59 pm
Isn’t he 16? :o
March 7, 2009 at 12:22 am
Absolute chic. love to him.
March 7, 2009 at 2:09 am
I love his hair. It really helps him look polished and put together.
March 7, 2009 at 3:15 am
What an adorable face.
March 7, 2009 at 4:10 am
fresh and slim!!nice hair cut!
March 7, 2009 at 5:10 am
Yes he is 17, I know him in person. And yes, it is in Stockholm.

March 7, 2009 at 7:05 am
He’s seventeen, and he’s my friend too.
March 7, 2009 at 9:27 am
AWESOME LOOK! *jealous face*adore this so much.
March 7, 2009 at 9:48 am
he looks like TInTIn :D
March 7, 2009 at 10:40 am
His relaxed demeanor, that he ‘owns’ the suit, that’s what makes it work. Inspires me to turn it up a notch!
March 7, 2009 at 4:56 pm
anybody know where to find this jacket? i like the style of collar and the pocket…
March 7, 2009 at 6:13 pm
Love it. Indeed, if I saw this boy someday I’d certainly ask him to marry me.
March 7, 2009 at 8:22 pm
He’s got the Tintin look!
March 8, 2009 at 4:10 am
Good to see Gustav get another look in on the blog. He’s got a special talent in style, and it shows here (though the brief case is a bit ordinary). The jacket reminds me of vintage YSL.
That’s no ordinary safety pin, by the way — it’s a Raf Simons brooch.
March 8, 2009 at 4:54 am
This guy could easily get a job in the Twilight movie.. Love the dangerous classiness.
March 8, 2009 at 8:11 am
I’ve seen that already, huh? Stockolm?
March 8, 2009 at 8:12 am
Nothing bold except for the safety pin…and still…its perfect…. he popped out from that cruel intentions movie…. and the hair… sooo JAMES DEAN…zexyyy…the gals vest is awesome…
ps: quit smokin pal!
March 8, 2009 at 11:52 am
His bag is from swedish Palmrgens!
March 8, 2009 at 2:48 pm
much much much much much love. this is perfect!
March 8, 2009 at 5:22 pm
he looks like Malfoy from harry potter series.. no offense.. he looks charming
March 8, 2009 at 6:13 pm
but everyone dresses like this or has the same haircut in Sthlm. Besides the hip crowd, they all look pretty much like young lawyers.
March 8, 2009 at 8:08 pm
He’s the guy that does Stockholm Street Style. Modeman
March 8, 2009 at 11:48 pm
too cute! i love the whole look, but to be honest im surprised to see 17 year old boys wanting to dress so (dare i say it) corporate. very rare!
March 9, 2009 at 5:51 am
Love the dress and basically the look on the face of the boy. So confident and corporate..
March 9, 2009 at 3:25 pm
gotta love the safety pin.
March 9, 2009 at 11:25 pm
His hair is real swell. Terrific shot.
March 10, 2009 at 1:29 pm
perfecto chic! I want his number yummy!
March 10, 2009 at 1:36 pm
love the safety pin. down with the carry all though, too passé, too “am going to the bank to check on my account”. cigarette gives the naughty guy touch to this otherwise clean-faced “I’m just soo perfect” Nordic man (who never withers)nico
March 11, 2009 at 12:12 am
I’m more interested in how he used the safety pin! Genius!
March 11, 2009 at 7:37 am
March 11, 2009 at 11:44 am
love the placement of the pin or whatever you call it. So unexpected
March 11, 2009 at 8:32 pm
Very Holden Caufield… Safety Pin is a nice touch.
March 12, 2009 at 1:41 am
He looks fantastic!…i like the classic form.
March 12, 2009 at 10:03 pm
This outfit and the shot so rock!
March 13, 2009 at 6:59 pm
Always love the jacket collar worn this way and the pin makes the perfect statement for it!
March 15, 2009 at 4:39 pm
He’s just fifteen years old, and he’s in my class so I would know.
March 22, 2009 at 5:34 pm
So sick of swedes even though im one myself.. tired of the perfection and the grey colours.. but yeah he do look good.. but looks just like every other swede.
April 13, 2009 at 4:16 am
dig the safety pin.
April 16, 2009 at 11:33 am
the safety pin is toooo cute!
June 4, 2009 at 7:53 am
He's 17? we're of the same age..he's really cute…the cig is a deal breaker though…wonder what hair product he's using…
June 13, 2009 at 12:40 pm
I agree, he does look like every other Swede, but I appreciate it anyway. Oh to be back in Sverge. And as much as I love the hair, this would look great with a hat. I can spot a Swede a hundred yards away if he's wearing a hat.

I love the pin holding his jacket together.

I don't know what the etiquette is on old posts… is there a moratorium on commenting? I was cruising the archives looking for something I wanted to revisit (so many of your images leave a long-lasting impression) and I don't know how I missed this. I grew up in the 90's so the pin says "grunge" to me… it's a little touch of punk, like the hair. Borderline. Love it. Hmmm… he'd be legal now. :)
