So cute !!
August 10, 2011 at 4:24 pm
I love it when you post updates! He looks fantastic.
Is he wearing the same shoes?
Things have certainly changed!
August 10, 2011 at 4:42 pm
It’s so much fun to see the evolution!
A tremendous improvement. More self-confident and a terrific haircut. Well done, Gustav.
I really like seeing how you run into the same people you photographed a few years before! I especially like seeing the changes that people go through after time has passed.
August 10, 2011 at 4:45 pm
Ha! He has mature quite a bit, posture, style et al. I adore the collar of hi shirt in the first picture.
He seems more sure of himself in the present that even if what he’s wearing is less “stylish”, it exudes more character.
August 10, 2011 at 4:52 pm
you mean 4 years later? he’s still looking amazing though :)
August 10, 2011 at 4:58 pm
He was change very much in four years!!
Hey Scott i was send a email for you yesterday, please read!!
August 10, 2011 at 4:59 pm
Much more confident. Lovely.
August 10, 2011 at 5:00 pm
@Kate, no they are different shoes (profile, sole and lacing). Thought the same at first glance.
He looks more comfortable in the newer picture.
August 10, 2011 at 5:04 pm
There is definitely a certain maturity and confidence in the way he carries himself in the present. He looks great, with the white shorts and black shoes. Handsome!
August 10, 2011 at 5:06 pm
I much prefer him in the 2007 ensemble
August 10, 2011 at 5:07 pm
He’s graduated from boy to man! Good looking.
August 10, 2011 at 5:11 pm
Us norwegians have a lot to learn from the swedes flare and style – it´s not that often you´ll se a young norwegian man looking this good. I love his glasses in the 2007 pic.
This is so amazing that one can see in your blog how fashion, times, styles and people change! Thank you so much for what you are doing!
I think he is wearing the same shoes. Am I right? He looks great though.
August 10, 2011 at 5:17 pm
Exactly how influential is ACNE clothing label in Sweden?
August 10, 2011 at 5:28 pm
No, not the same shoes; check the soles. It really is amazing the transformation from geek to god but still keeping style going all the way.
August 10, 2011 at 5:50 pm
How lovely is he? I am adoring these looks.
August 10, 2011 at 5:54 pm
Love it. He looks happier now too!
August 10, 2011 at 5:55 pm
Love it! He looks like he has matured a bit but still has great style. Love the shorts and loafers.
August 10, 2011 at 6:05 pm
he looks so much better! people are saying he looks more mature but i think he has a more casual and immature look about him, making him look relaxed, confident and comfortable, he makes for great photos.
August 10, 2011 at 6:18 pm
good god he’s gorgeous! Love the expression you have captured.
August 10, 2011 at 6:21 pm
Has he started to smoke? J
2011 look is cute! Good taste!
August 10, 2011 at 6:32 pm
love the makeover!
August 10, 2011 at 6:34 pm
he looks so great know. Before he had a outfit style good, but know.. awesome! :)
kisses for you and for him as well
August 10, 2011 at 6:46 pm
Oh, he is wonderful and is blogging at http://rodeo.net/gustav
August 10, 2011 at 6:54 pm
He is so.. Handsome!
August 10, 2011 at 7:04 pm
Wow, feels like yesterday. I remember this image very clearly. How much life has changed since then. Gustav looks as stylish as before.
August 10, 2011 at 7:13 pm
Gorgeous shots, both times.
August 10, 2011 at 7:24 pm
What a transformation – I see he’s still a fan of winklepickers though.
August 10, 2011 at 7:28 pm
August 10, 2011 at 7:41 pm
He looks very F. Scott Fitzgerald now. I love the vintage preppy look.
August 10, 2011 at 8:05 pm
I prefer how he looks now!
August 10, 2011 at 8:09 pm
Gustav August 2011 …definitely!
August 10, 2011 at 8:41 pm
I am fascinated with the clarity in the more recent photograph. The photo from 2007 is nice, but the 2011 photo looks like you could walk into it and touch the guy. I’m assuming you used 2 different cameras?
August 10, 2011 at 8:49 pm
Would he look as cool if he didn’t have a smoke in his hand?
August 10, 2011 at 9:23 pm
AMAZING FOTOS!! your are doing your thing!!!

His style is definitely different…
August 10, 2011 at 9:44 pm
Wonderful goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too wonderful. I really like what you’ve acquired here, really like what you are saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it sensible.

Loving Gustav 2011!!
So enamoured of how you update on past subjects!!
August 10, 2011 at 10:35 pm
Good job Gustav! ;)
August 10, 2011 at 10:37 pm
He got sexy!!
August 10, 2011 at 10:41 pm
spunky! The best boy/man hair style. Love it
August 10, 2011 at 10:50 pm
I am a new reader of your blog and loving it.
On first glance I couldn’t imagine that Gustav could have been photgraphed 4 years earlier as he looks so young!
Lucky Gustav youthful, handsome and stylish to boot!
Love his haircut and the whole look.
August 10, 2011 at 10:52 pm
Eh ben Gustavou en 2011, il est chaud comme la braise !
The Tailored Two
August 10, 2011 at 11:20 pm
He looks so good this time around. It looks a little more effortless but suave.
August 10, 2011 at 11:22 pm
I just had a WOW factor. His metamorphosis over four years is excellent. BTW, The top and the Statue of Liberty embedded sweater is cool, the bag, the shorts and the leather shoes- perfect!
August 10, 2011 at 11:36 pm
Gustav has grown up nicely. I love the sophistication of his look now and the air of confidence he seems to have. Not to mention those legs!
August 10, 2011 at 11:44 pm
I just saw the video about you and your job and I realized that I had never sent a messsage for you!! I love your site and your photos.
We are waiting for you here in Brazil!!!
August 10, 2011 at 11:59 pm
He has really become a very handsome man. He changed a lot. Great look. I love the current shoes.
August 11, 2011 at 1:36 am
4 years is Nothing!
August 11, 2011 at 1:44 am
So stylish. I prefer the current look.
August 11, 2011 at 1:50 am
Hi, Love your site so, I would like to know when you’ ll come to Israel????
August 11, 2011 at 1:54 am
Wow, this is amazing, to see the how he looks for years later! Love the more recent look!
August 11, 2011 at 2:18 am
Are they the same guy ? Wow he changes a lot and become more confident…..
August 11, 2011 at 2:24 am
wow, it’s amazing how some people just manage to always look good!
August 11, 2011 at 3:01 am
age has done him — and his sense of style — quite well.
August 11, 2011 at 3:23 am

The Satorialist is a new acquaintance for me. This will be heavenly inspiring for me.
Enjoy our lovely Stockholm.
August 11, 2011 at 3:24 am
Would be sexy if only he didn’t smoke…
August 11, 2011 at 3:28 am
So much hotter, yum
August 11, 2011 at 4:03 am
Il look e’ cambiato così come lo stile ma l’innata eleganza, nonostante la sigaretta, non e’ mutata. Veramente due belle foto!
August 11, 2011 at 4:12 am
He looks so great! Is he a single man???
Could you give me his phone number? (or different contact…)
August 11, 2011 at 4:14 am
I guess he is like wine, he gets better with time ;-)
August 11, 2011 at 4:42 am
I like it when you photograph the same person twice too; it really is interesting seeing how they’ve changed, etc. I love his bag in the photo from 2007!
August 11, 2011 at 4:47 am
I have the same bag in camel! bought it in a second hand shop for 40€. very nice pictures!
August 11, 2011 at 6:12 am
And the lamb becomes a lion
August 11, 2011 at 6:22 am
Well, bravo for Gustav. A mature style. Keep on, as less is more !
August 11, 2011 at 6:29 am
Looks much better without this horrible glasses:) Gustav 2011 wins!
August 11, 2011 at 6:30 am
I love his hair on the 2011 picture.
August 11, 2011 at 6:41 am
I don’t share the enthusiasm of other readers about his current look. What he wears today isn’t flattering at all… I think his white shorts are way too loose (they seem over-sized) and the sweatshirt doesn’t have the right fit. On top of that, there is a lack of balance between the 2 (the shorts and the sweatshirt).

The men are so elegant!
August 11, 2011 at 7:34 am
I love, love, this look .
August 11, 2011 at 7:59 am
Great! They both look awesome!
August 11, 2011 at 8:09 am
Very nice ! He’s grown up from boy to a man and he looks much more confident . I’m wondering what’s happened with him trough this four years ?
August 11, 2011 at 8:29 am
love your work and your characters! very inspiring
August 11, 2011 at 8:39 am
Cool confidence now. I like the improved “Gustav look” much better.
August 11, 2011 at 8:41 am
You sure saw the potential back then He is so beautifully turned out now. Xxxx
August 11, 2011 at 8:42 am
oh my, oh my. if i saw him in that doorway i’d ask for a light.

August 11, 2011 at 8:56 am
wow!!!just fabulous…i still remember the last before/after post of yours vividly…nerd chic to cool pro!
August 11, 2011 at 9:17 am
Gustav is much better now huh? He’s handsome now :)
August 11, 2011 at 9:27 am
Years have benn good to you, Gustav!
The world really is a small village! The possibility of finding someone you’ve met a long time ago in ‘some corner’ amazes me!
Love your blog!! :)
August 11, 2011 at 9:41 am
Its great seeing that you’ve documented his progression in style.
August 11, 2011 at 9:50 am
love the grey and the white on the PARIS sweat. and his hair!
August 11, 2011 at 9:53 am
So cute, makes me happy :)
August 11, 2011 at 10:14 am
This is so great… I love the before and after. The are both amazing, but the latest is definitely the best. That grey and white, sporty with classic shoes and the haircut is insane. What a sense of style.
August 11, 2011 at 10:25 am
Great style then and great style now.

August 11, 2011 at 10:54 am
Wow, he looks a ton better now! And he looked good before! Hot damn.
August 11, 2011 at 11:08 am
Love the second look ! Totally fab lookin !
August 11, 2011 at 12:22 pm
I think here too it comes down to body language. His body language in 2011 is speaking confidence and relaxation, whereas he looks awkward and unsure in the 2007.
August 11, 2011 at 12:43 pm
love his updated look! such easy sophistication…
August 11, 2011 at 1:09 pm
IS THIS IT? models review
August 11, 2011 at 1:41 pm
Talking about 2011 shot: I like that shirt collar I lot! I have few like that, and I have to say I usually use them like this, so under a sweater.
August 11, 2011 at 1:51 pm
He looked great in 2007 and even better now!!!
August 11, 2011 at 2:27 pm
He looks happy now. Relaxed.
August 11, 2011 at 3:24 pm
well, this is certainly a change ! I prefer him now
August 11, 2011 at 4:20 pm
head to toe stunning
August 11, 2011 at 4:46 pm
hmm… not sure I like the style change all that much.
August 11, 2011 at 6:32 pm
That’s some serious makeover! :) And I like it very much.
August 11, 2011 at 8:05 pm
he looks more confident ^^
August 12, 2011 at 12:03 am
Nice style. Somehow, the different looks both suited him. It’s like he is an entirely different person in the other shot.

August 12, 2011 at 1:09 am
The young man in the first photo is well dressed and extremely handsome!
August 12, 2011 at 3:33 am
LOVE his shoes and bag in 2007, and great sweater and look for 2011.
August 12, 2011 at 5:23 am
I love these kind of posts.
He sure has grown up nicely.
Love his look now.
August 12, 2011 at 6:32 am
Effortless… or grown up?
You tell me…
August 12, 2011 at 6:53 am
OMG! love the new look for Sartorialist.
August 12, 2011 at 8:00 am
he has gotten even more handsome… handsomer (?) :-)
August 12, 2011 at 11:00 am
Sorry Gustav took up smoking. Otherwise, he’s quite handsome and stylish.
August 12, 2011 at 11:40 am
Wow he looks gorgeous! His current hair is fabulous!

August 12, 2011 at 1:09 pm
Not a huge style transition from 2007 to now but there’s definitely more confidence and sophistication in his current photo.

August 12, 2011 at 4:10 pm
August 12, 2011 at 5:17 pm
wow, awesome outfits. both are amazing, but i have to say that i think the 2011 one is an improvement!
August 12, 2011 at 6:10 pm
I like his hair in 2011 and his outfit from 2007.
I did not know that both pictures were of the same men until I read the comments. I wonder if this look is one of many or if it’s a new style all together. Maybe he likes to play dress up, almost like characters.
He can pull both looks off, though.
August 13, 2011 at 3:02 am
Aw, he has blossomed!
August 14, 2011 at 6:01 pm
Like the look ..check out http://www.grandeurclub.com guys!
August 14, 2011 at 9:51 pm
He just gets better with age. :o) Very handsome.
August 15, 2011 at 5:24 am
He certainly looks far better now! His 2007 glasses were not the best match for his features.
PS. I am confused by the sweatshirt: is that from acne?
August 15, 2011 at 8:51 am
He really looks great in those shorts and shoes.
Any idea where the sweatshirt can be found?
August 16, 2011 at 9:11 pm
Sweatshirt is from Acne and you can get it from their official online store. I always liked Gustav’s style a lot when I saw pictures of him on different blogs.
August 16, 2011 at 9:54 pm
His style is still impeccable.
August 17, 2011 at 5:27 am
I love how he’s so confident now. His face looks quite changed and he looks more handsome, still I prefer his old look.
August 17, 2011 at 7:45 pm
Ok, im not trying to be rude or anything, but the bag is hurting my masculinity, i don;t know why… I’m staring at the picture for like 20 min now trying to figure this out… i like the outfit as well as the model but the bag… hmmm
anw, I like this page cuz it makes me rediscover myself with every picture…

this site is not mere inspiration – its solution ! I am thinking about my new haircut and here it is :) BTW: great story hidden between 2007 and 2011 photos…
August 21, 2011 at 6:08 am
Having slacks that end at or just above the ankle are all the rage… I want his bag!
August 22, 2011 at 2:11 pm
Very handsome man!
August 22, 2011 at 2:18 pm
This is fantastic. One of the best ‘years later’ posts. The confidence in his smile and eyes sends out great inspiration.
August 23, 2011 at 3:03 am
Gustav’s a BABE!
August 26, 2011 at 12:49 am
August 27, 2011 at 8:01 am
love it when you do this! Shows how style evolves perfectly!
August 29, 2011 at 8:26 pm
my favorite of all from when i started reading a year ago.
September 1, 2011 at 4:35 am
Sure he looks more healthy and confident in the newer photo, and I like his new haircut, but to be honest, I think his older outfit was better. His shorts are too baggy, his shoes are too chunky, and his outfit is soo preppy (what is this? An abercrombie commercial?)
He looks bangin in the old photo. Those skinny stove pipe pants short of a length, the tight fitting Oxford shoes, hip glasses and the shirt/belt to match
One stylish swede
September 3, 2011 at 6:49 am
Great, in the new pic he looks like out of the a old movie !!!
