Holy hot guys, batman. Love the grey jacket w/those pants tucked into the boots topped w/a pom-pom hat!
December 28, 2007 at 7:45 pm
ADORABLE!!!!! Both outfits are perfect!
December 28, 2007 at 7:51 pm
I like a guy who’s not afraid to wear some fuzzy mittens!
They look like they’re having a fun wintery day.
December 28, 2007 at 7:53 pm
they must be models- they look dressed for a photo shoot! i especially love the layering of the guy on the left
December 28, 2007 at 7:58 pm
Yeah, nice outfits. Both of them.
December 28, 2007 at 8:10 pm
the shoes of the guy on the right are awesome! I like everything about both these looks EXCEPT the gloves… they look like bandages
December 28, 2007 at 8:13 pm
December 28, 2007 at 8:16 pm
Hey hey hey!
December 28, 2007 at 8:17 pm
It’s all fantastic, even the hat!Love how the fair guy has mixed mid-range blues, greys, browns etc. All great with his colouring.The darker guy is equally cool in his more contrasting outfit. That grey jacket is purrrrrfect.
December 28, 2007 at 8:45 pm
They are both too delicious for words. I like the overall silhouette of the guy in the gray jacket, despite the jeans tucked into boots- as a rule not a good look in my opinion.
December 28, 2007 at 8:57 pm
Like the guy on the left, he looks cool…The guy on the right looks like hes straight out of a spin doctors video…
December 28, 2007 at 9:10 pm
i love the gloves! and the sweater too.
December 28, 2007 at 9:13 pm
i really like the knit material on that hoodie and the cardigan-like pockets. the gloves add a nice touch to emphasize the lighter cream of his jacket, but i think they look a bit girly.
December 28, 2007 at 9:30 pm
who are these very attractive men?
December 28, 2007 at 9:48 pm
i love the image with kind of hat
December 28, 2007 at 9:49 pm
love their outfits! brothers? can i have them both?=)
December 28, 2007 at 9:53 pm
i wish all boys dressed this way. are they american??
December 28, 2007 at 9:54 pm
I like the toned down color combination of the two of them. The left one lightning it up (off white gloves, white sneakers, beige sweater) and the right one toning it down (black shoes, dark hat, darkish scarf)Nice combo combined.
December 28, 2007 at 9:57 pm
I like everything but the white mitts. These are two adorable boys.
December 28, 2007 at 10:14 pm
Can you say HOTT?!!! And their style…where are the guys like that in the rest of the world? So nonchalant, but still put together with style. Great smiles…
December 28, 2007 at 10:17 pm
Luv that grey jacket.Luv the two pockets on the chest.
where did he got it?
December 28, 2007 at 10:21 pm
these guys are awesome. workwear in muted colors that are not too matchy-matchy.
hear hear for the cream gloves and the pom pom beanie.
rag and bone should rip em off.
December 28, 2007 at 10:49 pm
Both great; but especially dig the guy on the right’s…well, real sense of style. Great proportions, hat just couldn’t be better…..
..and let’s hear it for left guy’s white shoes-gloves matchup!
Many choices here, well made and then…just allowed to be with ease and wit.
December 28, 2007 at 10:52 pm
Very cool, and eclectic style on both of the guys. I like the mixture of monotonic colors on the gentleman on the right. Why don’t the boys look like this at home?
December 28, 2007 at 10:59 pm
these guys look like they could be professional models.
December 28, 2007 at 11:01 pm
love the boots on the right and the gloves on the left. it doesn’t hurt that the pair is ridiculously good looking. love the lighter coats and color combinations. the hat is adorable.
December 28, 2007 at 11:13 pm
Love the gray jeans.
December 28, 2007 at 11:28 pm
So very NEW YORK!
December 28, 2007 at 11:34 pm
I love it! These two look amazing. Even as a female I can definitely gain much style inspiration from this photo.
December 28, 2007 at 11:54 pm
Lose the pom pom. Otherwise I quite like the picture.
December 28, 2007 at 11:55 pm
Everyone in the world is jealous of people who grew up in New York. We won’t say it out loud though.
December 29, 2007 at 12:03 am
Nice low tones. I have difficulty dressing in quiet colours.
December 29, 2007 at 12:20 am
December 29, 2007 at 12:32 am
Now why didn’t someone put them in my xmas stocking?
December 29, 2007 at 12:41 am
what a duo!
brown sweater is my favorite.
December 29, 2007 at 12:46 am
My mom has always told me “the young can pull off anything.” I never understood what that meant until just now.
December 29, 2007 at 12:58 am
Yes yes yes yes yes! Thank you for these two gorgeous boys!
December 29, 2007 at 1:02 am
Left’s jumper, right’s hat jacket and trousers. No t shirt, no checks. No mittens.
I love the jacket that the guy on the right is wearing. He looks comfy. Not only does his clothing look functional, but it demonstrates his style, too. It does not hurt that this guy is super charming, too. :)
December 29, 2007 at 1:26 am
oooh they’re beautiful
December 29, 2007 at 2:13 am
Lovely duo. Each has his own personal style, but they look pretty amazing together.
December 29, 2007 at 3:04 am
I like this. The outfits are very genuine but still nicely coordinated. Amazing smiles.
December 29, 2007 at 3:18 am
Great fit on the right, although the pants are a bit big to be tucking in boots, no?
December 29, 2007 at 3:59 am
December 29, 2007 at 4:29 am
really cute guys, aren’t they?
December 29, 2007 at 4:44 am
I just can’t seem to like skinny pants on guys, i think their outfits would look much better with straight cut pants.
December 29, 2007 at 4:49 am
those two prove it.perfection is imperfectionlove them
Vistiendo a Candela
December 29, 2007 at 5:16 am
I like the gay with the grey jacket
December 29, 2007 at 5:31 am
I like th guy without the cap better,but maybe he is occupied already.
December 29, 2007 at 5:43 am
Great style, both of them! But what really finishes it off are the cute smiles and what seems as a fun attitude.
December 29, 2007 at 7:04 am
Oh my, my. Two good lookin’ boys, smiling and holding eachother. Can bot be wrong. And thair clothes; WOW!
December 29, 2007 at 7:16 am
absolutely love your 2 latest posts, really fresh!
December 29, 2007 at 7:17 am
Gotta be models. They’re gorgeous, and they do the wintry look pretty well.
December 29, 2007 at 7:24 am
Wow! They are soooo cute!
December 29, 2007 at 7:33 am
December 29, 2007 at 8:10 am
He(left) looks like someone is pulling the jacket and the trousers down.Well why not. As long as you get noticed any look is OK.A lot of people suffer from various degrees of attention deficiency disorder nowadays.The really diffeent way to dress would be plain, boring basics that nobody notices . But that takes a strong and well grounded personality and that kind of human being is in short supply.
December 29, 2007 at 8:31 am
Stylish lads in a comfy way. I like it.
December 29, 2007 at 9:27 am
These guys can layer in a way that is casual, yet a little dressy. Love the addition of gloves. The other guy looks like he needs them.
December 29, 2007 at 9:36 am
They look so great.Explosive megawatt smile always is a plus.
December 29, 2007 at 9:48 am
Don’t like either look. Typical grunge gone trendy look – too messy.
December 29, 2007 at 10:00 am
December 29, 2007 at 10:12 am
Lovin’ it all. Even the baggy jeans tucked into the boots…It’s a look I’m not a big fan of but the kid pulls it off. They’re both flawless. Job well done.
December 29, 2007 at 10:24 am
I really hope these two are a couple. They look like they deserve each other, in a nice way.The guy on the left looks like he jumped out of bed, threw on jeans, jumper and a jacket and accidentally ended up with the exact perfect outfit. The clothes makes me want to jump his bones, the gloves make me want to marry him.Christof.
December 29, 2007 at 11:04 am
I love plaid and funny knit hats with pom poms as much as I love cute smiling boys.
December 29, 2007 at 11:21 am
Hi, Steve! Funny to run into you on the pages of the Sartorialist now that we don’t run into you at races any more. Suzy and Barry say hello from Portland.
December 29, 2007 at 11:37 am
they can´t be from this world.
December 29, 2007 at 11:42 am
Anon 8:45 was So right: Delicious.
December 29, 2007 at 12:13 pm
2 handsome young fellas. great style.
December 29, 2007 at 1:26 pm
The grey jacket is amazing (and I love the hat)Plus he’s hot.I like the knit of the brown sweater, but definitely NOT the mittens.
December 29, 2007 at 1:53 pm
OMG ARE THEY MODELS OR GAY. TOTALLY HOT!!! GREAT DRESS SENSE. AND OMG HOTTTTTT
December 29, 2007 at 2:17 pm
fantastic! :) love the smiles and the layerings.
December 29, 2007 at 2:37 pm
where were these guys when i was that age? not these particular two, they were in diapers. but guys like that. sigh.
December 29, 2007 at 2:45 pm
DUDES! YOU GOT A DELL!
December 29, 2007 at 3:21 pm
the boy in the hat neeeeeds to be my boyfriend. i love his style! not to mention how precious he looks in that hat! haha
December 29, 2007 at 3:41 pm
December 29, 2007 at 3:54 pm
Hmm, just looking at these two gents made me feel about 25 years younger. ;-) I like what they’re wearing, too.
December 29, 2007 at 4:36 pm
okay…enough about how hot these guys are (though, their smiles are certainly killer)…and more about the clothes!
I think they both look pretty stellar minus a couple details. It’s annoying that Left Guy’s gloves are cream and his shoes are white…oh, so close, but yet, so far away. And I usually don’t mind the skinny jeans, except for when they’re paired w/ light colored shoes. I think gray or brown would have worked better.
And Right Guy–I can’t tell if it’s b/c of the anggle of the camera lens, or if it’s a combo of his tucked pants & that he’s pushing his pants down…but his legs look stumpy and those boots look too sporty.
December 29, 2007 at 5:19 pm
Nice smiles, but other than that, what merits a second look here? The grey jacket looks like a good everyday option, but traditionally the bottom button would not be buttoned.
December 29, 2007 at 5:29 pm
Yum. I love me a well-dressed couple of men… :D
December 29, 2007 at 5:36 pm
Wau, this is like straight from a Gap-add or something!
love you page.
December 29, 2007 at 7:24 pm
these guys are simply adorable/. i hope they are working in the fashion business. we need them.
December 29, 2007 at 7:34 pm
Does anyone know who makes the jacket on the right? The grey one. Looks like something I would totally wear. These guys are both looking outstanding and i really like the scarf on the fellow to the right.
December 29, 2007 at 7:56 pm
Nice boys, nice outfits – bet they’re great company. Love the twinkle in both their eyes.
December 29, 2007 at 8:31 pm
Nice. But no way these guys ‘grew up in NY.’ Just some more transplanted models.
December 29, 2007 at 9:30 pm
I’m so glad you’re taking pictures around the eastside more and more now!
December 29, 2007 at 10:39 pm
Mmm! Those boys are oh-so-nice!I especially love the khaki textured sweater on the left. It’s great with the plaid. And the pompom hat is always excellent.
December 29, 2007 at 11:16 pm
boys like this are just too perfect to be real, or to date. like good to a fault. as in i’ve made it a (lax) rule not to go for guys who look tooo good, or artists, or guys in bands. they’re so much fun, but much too temporary. i don’t know, though, these guys are so charming that perhaps i wouldn’t be able to resist. especially the easy, warm smile on the right.
aside from all that, they both have exceptional taste. bravo, boys.
December 29, 2007 at 11:21 pm
men boots are so pretty!
December 30, 2007 at 12:11 am
homie on the left looks modelesque. yumm! and i love that he is wearing ivory gloves.i’m not thrilled with the fit of the jacket dude on the right is wearing. a little more room would have made it more seasonally appropriate and appealing for me.
i love how the colors in the gentlemens’garments are mirrored by the buildings behind them. (or vise versa?)
December 30, 2007 at 12:36 am
I like both their outfits. I like casual style, looks comfortable and something you can put together in 5 minutes.I think that hats like that are so funny – it looks like a kolla hat with a pompom.
December 30, 2007 at 12:38 am
The guy with the hat…his smile could be the death of me. Goodness!
Boys like this can be found in the US? Really?
December 30, 2007 at 2:22 am
i think im in love.
The Velvet Scientist
December 30, 2007 at 4:45 am
Great style for Americans! I love the guy on the left’s jacket…
love it all. especially the raw jeans on the right, even if they are slightly baggy, they work well tucked into the boots. and the layering of both outfits.
December 30, 2007 at 5:09 am
Adorable! Best friends, lovers?Anyways, looks like happy times! and I´m going to East Village this spring fore sure :-)Happy New Years from Sweden..
December 30, 2007 at 5:49 am
they look amazing. perfection.
December 30, 2007 at 6:40 am
Perfect both of them!
December 30, 2007 at 8:38 am
why are these gorgeous guys only in NY??????????i want them here!!!
perfect outfit, however (and marvellous smile)
December 30, 2007 at 9:49 am
this photo looks like an urban tommy hilfiger campaign.. love it!

December 30, 2007 at 11:56 am
I love fashionably dressed young men! I wish there were more pics like this one!
December 30, 2007 at 12:03 pm
holiday buddies, so cute and so perfectly casually dressed!
December 30, 2007 at 12:12 pm
everything is perfect, in fact too perfect.
very trendy models. too trendy.
December 30, 2007 at 12:24 pm
As usual this look is good only on ‘beautiful’ people. Come visit small town USA and see the ‘plain’ people wearing this same thing.
December 30, 2007 at 1:36 pm
I like this style!!
December 30, 2007 at 1:50 pm
Funny that only a couple of people noticed what I did right away. These boys are smiling! That is why they look so good.
December 30, 2007 at 2:38 pm
These two look like they stepped off an ivy-league campus from the 1940s; the plaid wool shirt is lovely. Or else they remind me of how I imagine the characters in Catcher in the Rye look like.
December 30, 2007 at 3:39 pm
I agree with doingtheunstuck @ 4:36.
While they are both so yummy, they are made sloppy shoe choices.
I feel the boots could be heavier. And the white shoes should either be fresh, immaculate white, or not white at all.
December 30, 2007 at 5:33 pm
Eric you camera whore
December 30, 2007 at 5:46 pm
i LOVE the style of the guy on our left, i am so going to buy a pair of grey skinny jeans now. but where can i find that great great plaid jacket??! somebody must know!
they are so wholesome.
& the reason why i keep coming back to this blog because i always feel inspired.
December 30, 2007 at 7:10 pm
very nice outfits!!
kisses from Spain!!
yes!! here we are fans of this web too!!
December 30, 2007 at 7:39 pm
I think the layering really does it for these two, especially because the layering is done with some really gorgeous pieces. Also, like someone said, the smiling. I don’t see the appeal of frowning and having everyone think you’re mad at the world.
December 30, 2007 at 8:36 pm
December 30, 2007 at 9:36 pm
i agree with k, the smiling is what really makes everyone react to the photo. less “badditude”, more happy! oh! and if i’m going to comment on the actual outfits, then i would say that the boy on the right would look much nicer in slimmer fitting jeans.
and a question – do you find that nowadays most of the people you photograph now know who you are? or are you still shrouded in a nice veil of anonymity when you head out and about with your camera?
December 30, 2007 at 11:49 pm
so cute. love them. those boots have to go, though. looks like he’s trying to hard.
December 31, 2007 at 12:56 am
Every item here is a classic of one kind or another: from the uniform jacket to the sneaks. Why do they seem fresh? For one thing, the fit = good and youthful, contemporary. Best of all, the guys are wearing the clothes, rather than the other way around. (See orange poncho) No wonder they look happy.
And I like the white gloves just fine – great with that plaid, and a little unexpected fillip.
December 31, 2007 at 2:15 am
guy on the left: seems very much like a “wow we just had a great night in bed now let’s roll out of it, throw something on and grab a late breakfast” kind of outfit, especially with the tossled hair and comfy (yet totally fantastic) choices. I like his mixing of textures and patterns.
guy on the right: brilliant smile. approachable…the kind of guy you’d find sitting on the bench across from you in washington square park and wish you were sitting next to. I’m loving the hands in the pockets and his hat.
December 31, 2007 at 3:54 am
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
or, is this a late christmas gift?
December 31, 2007 at 5:24 am
But this is how everyone in London has been dressing for the past four years….
December 31, 2007 at 8:14 am
Here is a lesson on how one can dress in this colder season. I appreciate the mix of textures through the different fabrics and fits. I can’t make my mind up omn which i prefer, i think it is the chap in the hat because of the mix of his fitted jacket, jeans and boots topped off with that silly but cute hat. That said the other chap is wearing a beautiful plaid jacket…
December 31, 2007 at 8:37 am
Wow, I’m not sure enough people have have commented about their physical appearance yet. Come on, let’s step it up people.
December 31, 2007 at 8:38 am
these guys are gorgeous! their smiles definitely make the picture. if they were standing there all sullen and brooding, this photo would not warrant a comment from me.
too all the guys out there, fashion savvy or not, a smile is always in fashion, especially on a cold winter’s day. happy new year’s from paris!
December 31, 2007 at 8:52 am
I love it! Happy new year!
December 31, 2007 at 9:40 am
Funny how people always seem to adulate over the male postings on sart. Personally, I am not a fan of either look; the cream gloves don’t mesh with the outfit and the skinny jeans are unflattering on the gentleman on the left, while the one on the right distorted his proportions by tucking loose jeans into boots. If the photo had been cropped from the waist up I could have appreciated it more, but their choices of shoes and pants ruin everything for me.
December 31, 2007 at 9:47 am
Oooh, hats off (pun intended) to a guy who dares to wear cream gloves.
The grey jacket on the gentleman on the left is beautiful. Love that it’s gently rumpled yet very fitted.
December 31, 2007 at 12:41 pm
These guys are trying WAY too hard to look sloppy. They probably live in Williamsburg too. Unimpressinve.
December 31, 2007 at 1:06 pm
This is how I look first thing in the morning when I fall out of bed to get my coffee. Then I take a shower and get dressed.
December 31, 2007 at 1:44 pm
I love this picture. Your photography is so natural, so warm and relaxed, but always beautifully composed.
I don’t see anything “gay” in this photo folks. Any other country on Earth would just say these are some friends who are hanging out. If they are, fine, if they aren’t, fine.
I think half their appeal is just being young, cool, tall and slim. They aren’t wearing anything that special, but they carry it off well by being casual.
December 31, 2007 at 4:44 pm
HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Must be two models tho
December 31, 2007 at 8:08 pm
These lovely lads MUST be models. Your average guy who’s rocking this style in NYC looks NOTHING like these two.
January 1, 2008 at 4:37 am
What a sunny picture! Not the wintery city, but the guys’ expressions, they look so relaxed and happy. Lovely way to start the new year, mr. Sart!
January 1, 2008 at 5:41 am
LOOK! A pic of the Sartorialist on a Parisian fashion blog(Dans Paris):

January 1, 2008 at 9:26 am
I like te idea of white sneakers for winter, and the picture is really nice, beautiful light and I love the touch of yellow from the cabs in the background… so NY!
January 1, 2008 at 9:48 am
As an agent I don’t think so. There is a huge difference between being an o.k looking guy & being a fashion model – Huge! Besides, the one on the right is not nearly tall enough going by the pic.
January 1, 2008 at 1:27 pm
What’s the big deal here? I have friends and know lots of guys who dress like this in my small hometown in Sweden. Boys outside NY are as well dressed. Sure, these boys have good taste and the ability to compose a nice outfit, but come on… it’s not rocket science.
January 1, 2008 at 7:28 pm
They look great!
January 1, 2008 at 7:46 pm
I can’t believe people think these dudes are models. Perhaps read VMan, L’Uomo Vogue, Arena Homme +Look at current ads for Dolce, Dior Homme, YSL Go on YouTube & look at the S/S 08 Milan/Paris shows – it’s pretty easy to see these guys are NOT models, their not the correct build & just don’t look like fashion models – they’re just ordinary guys you come across everyday in Lower Manhattan, especially the East Village / L.E.S – everyone looks like this for crying out loud & you DON’T need to be a model to have a sense of style – especially in a city like N.Y where you’re constantly surrounded by fashion.
January 1, 2008 at 9:57 pm
aww cute! they look so toasty and comfortable – those things and their smiles combined caught my attention before the actual clothing details did.
January 2, 2008 at 4:15 am
Too cute. Love the way they each have their own individual sense of style yet they’re very complimentary. Jumper’s hot, hair’s adorable, gloves are fun, and the boots are just wicked sick. I’d hit that.

These guys are so uber chic …My muse 4 the Day.
January 3, 2008 at 7:27 am
The guy on the left is a successesful swedish model and his name is Niklas Nilsson. You can find him at his agency http://www.mikas.se
January 3, 2008 at 1:13 pm
January 3, 2008 at 8:33 pm
hot guys, hot outfits ;)
January 4, 2008 at 1:15 am
The grey jacket maynot be military surplus, but it could be. (or military academy …) If you want that cut, seek out a uniform seller (new or vintage – including service uniforms, as hotel etc) – I had the exact cut in college in off-white, a former marching band uniform jacket – swapped the brass buttons for ivory ones and it was great.
January 4, 2008 at 8:44 pm
The guy on the left is not the Swedish model Niklas Nilsson, who looks like this:
January 5, 2008 at 4:54 am
you just want to put them on your couch under a nice cashmere blanket… very much winter in NY!
January 5, 2008 at 3:55 pm
The guy on the left is Niklas Nilsson, born 1984. He is a swedish successful model with campaigns for Ralph Lauren and jobs for Italian Vogue. He lives in Örebro, Sweden and is occuppied with a swedish girl named Louise. In NY you find him at the acency Vision-NY/LA.
January 7, 2008 at 12:06 am
January 7, 2008 at 9:27 pm
The guy on the left looks great and I love the gloves, and he is super cute. The guy on the right looks very messy, and is not very attractive at all.
January 11, 2008 at 2:27 pm
Great shoes, sweater, pants and smiles… and everything else. Great styles from head to toe.If I had to guess, I’d say models.
January 11, 2008 at 6:01 pm
HOT guys, perfect outfit!
January 16, 2008 at 12:09 am
blonde guy:great hair, great outfit
don’t know about the gloves, they look a bit big
The grey jeans and white shoes are great!
everything good but the boots..
January 16, 2008 at 7:40 pm
adorable boys! very fresh and natural!they aren´t cute but they have style!
January 16, 2008 at 8:11 pm
I love them both!!I like both jackets, and the hat that’s wearing the one on the right. The pants inside the boots, also a good point.and the white gloves!!
they are hot! =P
January 21, 2008 at 10:03 pm
cool guys wearing cool clothes… perfectiongorgeous ensembles overallthey really capture the urban vibe
January 22, 2008 at 2:18 pm
I agree with the spin doctors comment. I think the blue coat doesn’t quite fit right and the black pants bag in a wierd wat. The guy on the left looks better, mainly because the white gloves match the white sneakers so well, but I otherwise think the outfits both seem like they don’t quite work as well as the effort put in should allow. They look too thought in a way that highlights what is drab in both.
