Cool! An urban rockabilly. OS
February 15, 2008 at 9:27 am
90210 all the way…hot stuff… :)
February 15, 2008 at 9:30 am
How amazing is this shot! Retro, cool, sleek and casual.. Fab hair and what I most enjoy, it feels natural, not playing dress up in vintage style –
i would run the slip-on’s through the wash with some bleach, but hey that’s just me :)
February 15, 2008 at 9:31 am
if those jeans are nudies, i think we were meant for each other :P
February 15, 2008 at 9:33 am
Peut on être plus beau?
February 15, 2008 at 9:37 am
My future husband.
February 15, 2008 at 9:48 am
i love this! the hair, the layering, the blue socks!
February 15, 2008 at 9:51 am
“Blue hotel… on a lonely highway…Blue hotel… life don’t work out my way !”
He is stunning. Simply stunning.
February 15, 2008 at 9:53 am
I’m feeling the Morrissey vibe.
(and those blue socks!)
goodness, look at him. mercy.
great shot scott.
February 15, 2008 at 9:59 am
What a hottie! Amazing. New screensaver haha
And of course great outfit!
Is the decolleté not too deep?

February 15, 2008 at 10:08 am
i’m in love
February 15, 2008 at 10:10 am
AH! James Dean! LOVING IT!
Keep up the good work.
February 15, 2008 at 10:17 am
An artsy James Dean. Very cool look.
February 15, 2008 at 10:27 am
Whoooa. He’s soo cute..:-)..anyway I didn’t know this kind of hair is trendy those days. It’s very “New Kids on the Block” style.
February 15, 2008 at 10:28 am
Ooh, I think I fell in love with him
February 15, 2008 at 10:35 am
Reminds me of a young Morrissey.
February 15, 2008 at 10:37 am
Purdy variant of El Moz
February 15, 2008 at 10:48 am
A beauty. Great shot…love his jeans.
February 15, 2008 at 10:49 am
I don’t know much about the deluca but he’s definitely a Dean.
February 15, 2008 at 10:52 am
This look is really rad, I love the simplicity of his ensemble because it’s so natural. Great Jacket as well.
February 15, 2008 at 10:54 am
That hair, indeed!On his head on creeping over the v-neck? Either way, awesome.
And yes to the blue socks!
February 15, 2008 at 10:56 am
yea! the james dean look. the sleek hair and clothes, it’s just amazing!
February 15, 2008 at 10:57 am
pretty boy but too self conscious. I guess you cant have one without the other, nowadays
February 15, 2008 at 11:15 am
cuanto estilo!!!!!!!!!! very much style!!!this boy remember very much a James Dean
when will you go to galicia??!!jeje
February 15, 2008 at 11:19 am
OK, so he was really just sitting there? Amost too good to be true — almost, because of the cigarette….
February 15, 2008 at 11:21 am
That hair on his head? Or chest?
Either way, it’s nice.
I love the socks.
February 15, 2008 at 11:22 am
haha ok james dean maybe and i see the 90210 but for some reason my first thought was vanilla ice! but this guy definitely rocks it better. i feel like i’m not supposed to be liking this but instead i love it!
February 15, 2008 at 11:24 am
The shoes, socks, pants interface: perfect!
February 15, 2008 at 11:26 am
He’s channeling Morrisey – not 90210.
“How soon is now”
February 15, 2008 at 11:36 am
Which hair? On the head or chest? ;)
Teasing! He’s so cool; I’d never make fun of him in real life.
I love the pop of the aquamarine … or peacock … or something colored socks.
February 15, 2008 at 11:38 am
the hair is very Morrissey(esque)
February 15, 2008 at 11:43 am
Moz would surely be proud
February 15, 2008 at 11:52 am
This season ladies and gents socks and cardigans should be THIS particular shade of blue – is it called azure maybe?
February 15, 2008 at 11:59 am
I’m also seeing a bit of Chris Isaak in this guy. This is, by far, one of the best pics I’ve seen on the Sartorialist in quite a while.
February 15, 2008 at 12:01 pm
a little bit of morrisey, a little bit of rockabilly and sooo cool!such a beautiful face too..
February 15, 2008 at 12:06 pm
So printing this picture out and taking it to my stylist. I’m not normally fond of using product, but if I could get my short ‘do in that kind of coiff, even for a day, I’ll helmet my hair in hairspray!
February 15, 2008 at 12:14 pm
Like everyone says, definitely channeling my fave, Morrissey. Though hopefully he’s not gay, because I NEED to marry this man. I just wish he weren’t holding that cig. Nasty habit, icky breath.
Viva Morrissey!! Actually, the clothes don’t look Mozzy to me at all…and I like the look but it’s a tad too derivative for me…only a tad. The blue socks are exciting and the grey jacket is lovely. The Dean & Delucca bag is a nice touch. *sighs* Morrissey. I like this guy, he’s very playful and very serious at the same time. But I will say…could use a different shoe.
I’m off to listen to Bona Drag now.
February 15, 2008 at 12:23 pm
i can’t believe no one has pointed out the likeness to henry holland.. is it just me that thinks that?
February 15, 2008 at 12:28 pm
awesome. that kind of haircut is always so full of energy, and totally cool and refined because of the smooth shapes. Also, this man totally looks like justin timberlake+adam levine.
February 15, 2008 at 12:31 pm
Ice, Ice, Baby!
February 15, 2008 at 12:33 pm
Morrissey for suuurrre. Sigh. Perfection.
February 15, 2008 at 12:35 pm
that certain shade of blue is very popular these days. he looks wonderful, and very handsome.
February 15, 2008 at 12:36 pm
yummy…. he is good enough to eat
February 15, 2008 at 12:39 pm
Wasnt this guy in The Pet Shop Boys?
February 15, 2008 at 12:53 pm
hmmmm… now how to get that hair…
February 15, 2008 at 12:59 pm
The hair is nice, but the socks are incredible!
February 15, 2008 at 1:21 pm
Fabulous!That socks too! heheh
Would you like to hire me to take pics in Sao Paulo/Brazil?I’m free…
February 15, 2008 at 1:24 pm
morrisey was the first thought that jumped into my head. great shot! I love that he doesn’t look “rockabilly” or like a straight up knock off of Moz…and the jeans are sweet!
February 15, 2008 at 1:26 pm
wow, he’s straight out of the 50′s or something. very James Dean / Rockabilly but edgier.
February 15, 2008 at 1:29 pm
Everything looks wonderful until you reach the socks and shoes; black leather boots would have looked better.
February 15, 2008 at 1:31 pm
February 15, 2008 at 2:10 pm
oh I’m in love :P
February 15, 2008 at 2:11 pm
February 15, 2008 at 2:24 pm
He’s very pretty.
stop me oh ha ho stop me…
i know i’m like the 11th person to say it, but he’s so channeling morrissey back in the day. :)
she’s a doll too in her tartan.
February 15, 2008 at 2:40 pm
The socks kinda throw me off, but the rest of his outfit… gorgeous. And indeed his hair… fantastic. The socks might grow on me a bit though, they’re quirky :)Besides the excellent choice of subject, the photo itself is pretty wicked too. Gorgeous light and perfect amount of DOF. Really still enjoying and drawing inspiration from this blog.
And those socks!! Nice pop of blue.
February 15, 2008 at 2:44 pm
And the socks are a great colour –they go so well with the jeans.
February 15, 2008 at 2:48 pm
Simple clothing + sexy hair = well done
L & K
February 15, 2008 at 3:06 pm
Is that the Boy with the Thorn in His Side? ;) What a cool ‘do.
February 15, 2008 at 3:09 pm
Is that chest hair I see? eeeeeewwwwwww
For a moment I thought sart was referring to his chest hair! Well, I guess it could be both of them.
Usu. I am a bit against chest hair exposure but in this case it looks sexy on him.
Like the blue socks..it works on him not me but still cool.
February 15, 2008 at 3:10 pm
He’s like my old Chanel bag
February 15, 2008 at 3:13 pm
I think the neck looks deep because of the angle of the photograph. I am loving the socks.
February 15, 2008 at 3:30 pm
he makes the world itself more beautiful.
see? dressing with care and consideration can make so many people happy…
February 15, 2008 at 3:36 pm
The chest hair is kinda nice actually… right?
February 15, 2008 at 4:31 pm
This is vanilla ice sexed out to the indie generation… Something very wrong, but irresistible about all of it.
February 15, 2008 at 4:32 pm
u captured him in the perfect lighting. it makes him glow… this is an amazing photo sartorialist!!! i’m sure it helps to have amazing looking subjects…regardless…GREAT PHOTOS! i still am eternally grateful for the inspiration i steal from your blog everyday!
I love everything about this.
February 15, 2008 at 4:43 pm
Too bad he is wearing sneakers!!! Real men wear leather shoes!!!!
February 15, 2008 at 4:49 pm
Hello James Dean!
He walked straight out of my dreams. He looks AMAZING. I love the V-neck and how he subtly layers all the other items on top of it. And the touch of color from the socks with the cuffed jeans… gosh, who is he?!
February 15, 2008 at 4:56 pm
i think i’m in love with him -wilde
February 15, 2008 at 4:57 pm
Oh, my god what a beautiful man!That´s all…
February 15, 2008 at 4:58 pm
Super dreamy! Love the whole look and yes, MEN have chest hair. Nice.
February 15, 2008 at 5:07 pm
i love him. it’s that simple
February 15, 2008 at 5:08 pm
I love him. It’s that simple.
February 15, 2008 at 5:41 pm
He is gobsmackingly hot but I just can’t do the v-neck. Sorry, boys, if you’ve got fur, keep it to yourself.
February 15, 2008 at 6:05 pm
Is it just me or isn’t it the grey leather jacket from the Dior Homme S/S 06? – I also do believe that the jeans are the raw ones with the 19cm hem. but maybe I’m wrong.
February 15, 2008 at 6:12 pm
He is chillin like a villain, as if everyday was like Sunday.
The hair history goes like this. Valentino – chicano 50′s style – greaser – early Robert Mitchum – J. Dean – the king – bobby fuller 4 (this list of guys have all fought the man style laws and won)- bronx italians – even straightened early 60′s black RNB acts eg. wilson pickett – falls apart during hippiedom – resurfaces in 80′s new york proto punk with more of a miltary vibe – morrissey – Suede – NKOTB – gay porn? and the recent revival of the Smiths interest.
It suits the guy like a hand in glove.
February 15, 2008 at 6:30 pm
Excuse me while I catch my breath…those EYES!
February 15, 2008 at 6:35 pm
sanjaya! haha no this is obviously better
February 15, 2008 at 6:45 pm
February 15, 2008 at 7:02 pm
Liking the clothes, loving th hair.
February 15, 2008 at 7:03 pm
hmmmm…grey leather, hint of plaid, slight rockabilly resemblance (see “raggare”), hint of bright color found in unassuming clothing item, the jeans…he’s probaly scandinavian
February 15, 2008 at 7:09 pm
i didn’t know guys like that still existed…you’ve made my day, sart!
February 15, 2008 at 7:49 pm
Carbon copy of Morrissey circa The Smiths.
February 15, 2008 at 7:51 pm
February 15, 2008 at 8:03 pm
it’s so refreshing not to see a shaved chest. he’s bridging the gap between high-school rebel and middle aged urban artist. i wonder if some more facial hair finish it off.the layering is careless and beautiful, with the frayed cuffs under the jacket.
February 15, 2008 at 8:11 pm
I’m burning this ensemble into my memory… Great layering, and an absolutely wonderful use of color with the socks and the flannel shirt.
February 15, 2008 at 8:25 pm
Reminds me of 21 Jump Street Days….
February 15, 2008 at 8:29 pm
there’s that exciting blue hue again. i have a shirt that color that i love to layer and let peek out. until the more recent trends of vivid blue, really saturated blue-black, and very neutral gray blues, i wasn’t much a fan of blue- kind of ho hum and over used. now it’s been recycled afresh, which is great since it brings out my eyes.
February 15, 2008 at 8:45 pm
wow wow wow….that hair really compliment the whole look..
February 15, 2008 at 9:22 pm
Rooster boy! love the turquoise socks–all in all, so much fun!
February 15, 2008 at 9:39 pm
All about the hair, baby.
February 15, 2008 at 9:40 pm
Effortless nonchalant style:-) Nice layering on the top and the skinny jeans work. However, the best part is the hair. This is one cool dude!
February 15, 2008 at 10:23 pm
Totally agree that he looks like a young Morrissey.
February 15, 2008 at 10:30 pm
he has a calm, collective cool about him.
February 16, 2008 at 12:16 am
oh my. i love this. the hair and the blueness of the socks.
February 16, 2008 at 12:56 am
love the shot.
February 16, 2008 at 2:06 am
February 16, 2008 at 2:34 am
I want hair like that. And I’m female.
Vintage looking hair is so amazing. I think everyone is over the standard side part/bangs thing by now, right?? I am, but I’ve been wondering what to do with my hair for some time.
Thank you beautiful boy who also happens to be wearing my favorite american apparel t shirt. Ah..I wish I could still reap the benefits of an employee discount.
February 16, 2008 at 4:55 am
February 16, 2008 at 4:57 am
You know, I see a person like that and I just want to know who they are and what they do, because there is so much personality there it’s amazing. Wonderful shot.
February 16, 2008 at 5:04 am
Quite a fe design cues here, both major and minor. I guess to be really James Deanian he’d need the famous bright red jacket. He certainly touches 3 Sart fashion “musts” the scarf, the quirky socks and (political correctness alert) the cigarette. Oh Sart, by the way, James Dean, another Indiana-bred culture and style icon.
February 16, 2008 at 5:41 am
love his eyes, which are beautifully accented by his bright blue socks!
the various snippets of color intermingled with that sludgy gray shade gives me the sensation of watching one of my many favorite movies, Pleasantville.
February 16, 2008 at 8:40 am
Hot, hot, hot!
February 16, 2008 at 10:06 am
Scott, could we possibly see more photos of this gorgeous man?
February 16, 2008 at 10:50 am
sweeeet hair and nice bright blue socks! i want some of that
February 16, 2008 at 11:23 am
fyi, from one who knows, he’s a slave to that hair!
February 16, 2008 at 11:29 am
As pretty as that hair is, I am sorry to report that it smells of cigarettes.
February 16, 2008 at 12:06 pm
hotness, not only in his hair!the layering to end up in his manly man chest, the very austere totally cool pieces….sexy dude, and he knows it.
February 16, 2008 at 12:19 pm
There is a Morrissey atmosphere in here ;)
February 16, 2008 at 12:26 pm
More like “that bone structure!” Stunningly handsome looks that are perfectly off-set by his trendy, yet still casual ensemble. It’s like New York meets Norway. And you gotta love the not so subtle peak of chest hair, perfectly illuminated by the mid-day sun. ;)Another great shot, Sart!
February 16, 2008 at 12:33 pm
What a shot! It’s an ad for anything cool. Anything.
February 16, 2008 at 12:50 pm
he’d look cooler if he slept on it – then wandered outdoors with itkept it more gene vincent, less 90s teen dramai have seen japanese morrisseys at gigs with quiffs over a foot and a half, bouncing around…classic
February 16, 2008 at 1:28 pm
I love him. It’s just that simple.
February 16, 2008 at 1:35 pm
That chest hair!!!!
February 16, 2008 at 2:23 pm
But… James Dean is still alive ?
February 16, 2008 at 2:46 pm
“90210″? are you serious … this look is as far from that show or characters in that show …
The person who said he needs to wash his slip-ons … NO! The worst possible thing is to run around town with pearly white converse, vans etc … no self respecting downtowner would ever have perfect white footwear … against east village/l.e.s laws!
February 16, 2008 at 3:14 pm
oh god, now I have to leave my husband…..and share him with Donald.
February 16, 2008 at 7:01 pm
This beautiful specimen of man is taken, unfortunately.
i love the bright blue socks
February 16, 2008 at 8:51 pm
A brilliant confection of a haircut, like a mr whippy ice cream. Looks a bit like Hamburg era pre fame Beatles, before Stuart Sutcliffe died. You kind of feel he should be wearing motorcycle or chelsea boots, but somehow it seems more authentic, like he almost has the whole outfit but is still saving up for the boots.
February 16, 2008 at 9:16 pm
He’s got as much hair under his shirt as he does on top of his head. I wonder if its display is part of the look?
February 16, 2008 at 9:40 pm
James Dean is alive and very well in Manhattan! Wow!
February 16, 2008 at 9:56 pm
looks like an ad for H&M.
February 16, 2008 at 10:36 pm
love the blue socks slyly peeping out.
February 16, 2008 at 11:11 pm
I like that he’s showing just that little patch of hair on his chest! Mmmmm… yummy!
February 16, 2008 at 11:20 pm
it’s a new take to match socks with eye colour, no?
February 17, 2008 at 3:52 am
It’s so obvious he’s channeling Morten Harket channeling James Dean.
(That’s Morten from the 80s group AHA)
February 17, 2008 at 5:30 am
Too good to be true – James Dean is alive and well in Manhattan.
February 17, 2008 at 8:25 am
Next week it will be a mohawk.
February 17, 2008 at 9:21 am
I love the whole look except from the shoes. I would expect something a little bit more sophisticated.
February 17, 2008 at 9:35 am
February 17, 2008 at 12:21 pm
love the hair, very j.dean as so many others have mentioned. Beautiful face too!
February 17, 2008 at 1:38 pm
hes insanely hot!
February 17, 2008 at 2:19 pm
LOVE IT! It makes me miss my NYC days even more than I already do
February 17, 2008 at 3:28 pm
A fine looking young man with superb style…well done! Makes me swoon!
p.s. and yes, I say more reminiscent of Moz over James Dean/90210…you kids best put down that Panic at The Disco record, and put on The Smiths! DANG.
The Urban Naturalist
February 17, 2008 at 3:55 pm
I like the blue socks and Morrissey hair.
The Queen Is Dead
February 17, 2008 at 4:30 pm
sometimes, I want to be a man. I like how comfortable he looks. truly a new york moment. please check out my blog!!
February 17, 2008 at 4:40 pm
very nice outfit, most points go to the socks!
February 17, 2008 at 6:47 pm
Jesus Christ. Of course he’s taken. He could be dating Gisele and he’d still be more beautiful. The bright blue socks somehow bring out his eyes, the ragged shirts balance out his perfect hair, the plaid gives it a rockabilly vibe, the leather gives it a James Dean vibe, and his bone structure and cool gaze are orgasmic. Simply put.
I just hope his personality can live up to it. It sure would be tough to be so damn beautiful.
February 17, 2008 at 7:51 pm
How funny – guess it’s ’cause I’m from the West Coast – my first thought was definitely Chris Isaak, not Morrissey. And those who know know that Chris Isaak is a style god. Too too bad about this guy’s cigarette, though. And the shoes. Boots, def.
February 17, 2008 at 8:23 pm
COLIN! Seriously, he looks this good all the time.
February 17, 2008 at 9:48 pm
the point really is: whereas the chest might have seemed grossly unkempt on another kind of guy, on him it works, AND HE KNOW IT. that’s the essence of a cool chic singular sartorialisto – knowing what works for you and going there.
February 18, 2008 at 12:02 am
i think i’m in love. those socks make my heart melt.
February 18, 2008 at 4:32 am
bloody hell, what a cutie! fantastic colour socks.
February 18, 2008 at 8:14 am
More well placed chest hair, please Sart!
February 18, 2008 at 8:36 am
What a heartbreaker. And sorry to say it but the ciggy does look cool.Loving the Dean & Deluca bag and paper cup props. Too beautiful.
(PS, Henry Holland WISHES he looked like this!)
February 18, 2008 at 2:27 pm
Sart spare us at least some of the repetitive comments; OK girls we love the socks and maybe him too but give a little more thought to it; you’re failing the class.
February 18, 2008 at 3:45 pm
I try not to be superficial, but my god beauty can be a wonderful thing…
February 18, 2008 at 4:18 pm
wow – the hair! and blue layers once again!
February 18, 2008 at 5:23 pm
He reminds me of Luke Perry on 90210. I know that sounds terrible, but it’s meant in the best of ways. Total heartthrob.
February 19, 2008 at 12:30 am
February 19, 2008 at 4:56 pm
I love… HIS HAIR!!
AWESOME look. The hair and the blue socks totally make it work!
February 19, 2008 at 6:00 pm
The guy isnt fugly, but you guys are overrating him severly. James Dean? Oh PUHLEASE!! Even Brad Pitt isnt fit to step in James Dean’s shoes.
If hes so good looking, who has he modeled for? Probably just works the cash register at some clothing store- hence the nice clothing
February 19, 2008 at 7:29 pm
i want a young man with david lynch hair :(
February 19, 2008 at 7:58 pm
I’ve already commented this picture once. But when I look at it again I feel like “URGH” he’s just like such a wannabee, very irritating to look at! Well, okay, I like the face but hey, what’s up with the shoes?! THEY ARE RUINING IT ALL!!! Why would u wear slip ons for that outfit?! That so NOT rock’n'roll, eventhough I like the socks! He’s looking a bit too cheap for my taste.
February 20, 2008 at 7:13 am
He definitely reminds me of James Dean.In my opinion, the only thing which is wrong here is the shoes, gosh no !
February 20, 2008 at 6:06 pm
Everybody is talking about his hair. But it’s the bag that makes this picture complete.
Dean & Deluca is what it’s all about.
February 20, 2008 at 7:14 pm
No, not James Dean but he pulls off a cool look. The outfit is very street but the hair makes it. Great hair and a very relaxed cool. Not everyone could make this work. This guy does it.
February 21, 2008 at 4:56 am
James Dean???? :) my immediate thought was Morrisey :)
February 22, 2008 at 7:49 am
February 22, 2008 at 6:25 pm
makes me wanna ride a Vespa real bad.
February 23, 2008 at 3:45 pm
Woah, he’s hot!!
February 24, 2008 at 12:38 pm
sexy in the dirtiest of ways. c’mon, check out the chest hair.
February 25, 2008 at 4:13 pm
6:00 p.m. – You sound a bit jealous, no?
The look appears effortlessly stylish but I highly doubt it is. Very good looking and deserving of the heaps of praise being lavished upon him.
February 26, 2008 at 2:31 am
I think this guy is a hair stylist. This looks like him backstage at the Rick Owens show with hairspray and brush (?) in hand!
Picture courtesy of Teen Vogue.
February 26, 2008 at 4:38 am
Oh this is so f*ing cool
February 27, 2008 at 10:08 am
Very James Dean meets Elvis Costello. :)
February 28, 2008 at 4:24 am
I can’t get over the hair :)
February 28, 2008 at 11:41 am
February 29, 2008 at 10:34 pm
omg love his style and of course the hair
March 1, 2008 at 1:07 pm
that hair is perfect. i would marry that man.
March 3, 2008 at 10:01 am
thats colin mccarthyhes a stylist and coordinator for bumble and bumblehe is very gay<3
March 4, 2008 at 1:19 pm
He looks a lot like Adam Levine.
March 5, 2008 at 11:48 am
a charming man…
March 6, 2008 at 7:44 pm
I could gauge the demographics breakdown of this site by the proportion of Dean/Moz/Perry comments.
March 8, 2008 at 4:56 pm
I have a haircut that could easily by styled like this. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what I could use to do this?

Being a hair stylist at Bumble & Bumble explains the hair. But the insouciant, rebellious, funny and goddamn sexy vibe remains a mystery. Rockstars aside, he’s an original. Oh, how I love him!

i thought of morrisey right away. i love everything about this look, especially the sneaks, because it makes him look like he’s not trying so hard (even though we all know it took him ages to get his hair like that). now i have to listen to “how soon is now”. sigh…
