interesting pants and combination of textures.

Rolling up pants and one button jacket(i love this color) are nice.The colors look calm and soft but his style is not feminine, totally.Orange and check pattern Bag is good key to make it stand out.

I just got such a WWII feeling of this picture, kind of beautiful.

Love the hat. This addresses the comment from an earlier post about young men being able to pull off a classic man’s hat: an emphatic yes.

This look works on so many levels but lets just talk about the accessories. The scarf adds volume but it also is extremely functional. I love his bag it is recalls those sewing bags from your grandmas house. But those shoes are what pull his look together, it gives it that perfect mix of ease and subtle sophistication every man should incorporate into his dress.

dont love the oversized sweater and ill-fitting trousers

As someone with a Swedish background… I have to say, the Swedes you photograph are far, far too trendy… lots of trite nods to elements of ’80s revival… for example, dime-a-dozen goth-ish painted nails: 100 percent unoriginal.
The italians you catch, by contrast, have a much more mature sense of of style, sophisticated pattern mixes… they know which rules to respect/ which to ignore, etc.

I’m torn between thinking this is sheer genius, or just really sloppy.

The large scarf is awesome.

Nice composition. The analogous color scheme made with the creme color of the building in the back, the tree’s brown, and his jacket’s brown is soothing. He emerges quietly against the background that has only a few colors in its palette.

This guy has character, it really bothers me seeing people mock his clothes for being ill-fitting, I sincerely hope the people that follow this blog are wiser then that, he looks very whimsical and out of this world, I wish I knew him.

Being from Northern Europe myself, I agree with slim. This is exactly the same stuff we wore as students in the eighties.
Home-sewn coats and fleamarket finds.
Maybe I just don’t have the necessary emotional distance to appreciate it.

I love this! That bag is amazing!
January 29, 2009 at 2:16 pm

Sweeds have fantastic style.

Rather unorthodox but the play on texture is just amaaaaaaaaaaazing!
January 30, 2009 at 2:40 am
I love these funky avant-garde Swedes!
January 30, 2009 at 12:27 pm
I think he’s really cool, but, actually I don’t like the pants…
January 30, 2009 at 5:43 pm
All of your Stockholm photos make me think of Rekjavik; Icelanders are similiarly impervious to the cold and they never need winter coats. Rekjavik is a good fashion town, you should do shoot there. We Americans are so wussy!
January 30, 2009 at 6:45 pm
Very unique style…
January 31, 2009 at 5:59 pm
i need that bag!!
February 1, 2009 at 5:47 pm
He’s got an “artsy thrifty” put it together and hope it works type of style.
February 2, 2009 at 6:31 pm
Am I the only one who thinks that the long sweater combined with the rolled up pants make his legs look about a foot long?
February 20, 2009 at 4:59 pm
I love it!!
March 9, 2009 at 6:42 pm
his entire look is in my opinion OK, I am not feeling the pants, as a seperate yes,but here with the rest of the garment it look sloppy.but definitely a man with style!
January 21, 2010 at 11:17 pm
I am in love with the bag and his jacket!
