    Longsleeved shirts are so sexy worn the way he does! His outfit is just the kind of outfit I like in a man: clean, simple, smart and yet, misterious because he is not using fashion in an expresive way, but in a pure functional way.

    Love his shoes! It would be great if he could open the two top buttons of his shirt, if that wouldn’t make him too cold, of course.

    personal style does not have much to do with what you are wearing, but how you are wearing it. this guy has a personal style that i dig. he is cute, too.

    he’s a cute moody boy.

    shot beautifully on a perfect background.

    he could have on a hefty bag and a yohji cardigan and we’d all be “ooooh.”

    you have got to be kidding sart.
    something has shifted…you recently seem to be taking fewer and fewer men with good style, more women and more like this guy.
    nothing wrong with him, but i think you are more interested in the guys face than his clothing. i see nothing fashionable or stylish nor sartorial about the men you have recently been taking. i remember first discovering your site and i was so inspired. i scrolled all your back months and years…but something definitely shifted. i still look forward to your findings.

    i have to admit that i’m confused about the majority of the responses to this outfit! i like his direct gaze, his slightly lowered brows, and the shoes are good, and the fabric of the shirt, but the shirt itself, and the jeans?
    i’m honestly scratching my head over this one.

    Yes, right everything, including the face and haircut.

    Great juxtaposition of subject and background, too.

    for m-
    nothing has systematically shifted
    but this blog ebbs and flows depending on where i am and what time of year it is.

    I just finished the womens collections so of course you will see a lot of women and fashion forward guys.

    If you like old school menswear (like I do) then just wait till January. The Pitti show in january is the ultimate sartorial playground BUT I’m not going to fake it or take shots of half-ass sartorial looks just to hit a certain number each month. I want to wait until I actually see something really good or I am at Pitti and Milan. Just look back at last Jan./Feb archive and see for yourself the huge number of great looks.

    Basically all I can shoot is what I see and it is as easy and challenging as that.

    i just don’t really get it. the buttoned up collar has me claustrophobic…or at least reliving memories of wool/polyester blend catholic school uniforms. and then super overwashed denim?
    if he wasn’t giving you that ‘come hither’ look it wouldn’t work at all.

    I love this image. Beautiful shirt. The rolled-up denim and white socks are a little “Curiosity Killed the Cat (The late eighties Warhol blessed pop music group)…which is a VERY good thing.

    i believe he’s wearing a shirt of his own design; he is one of my favorite men’s designers. the aesthetic of his collections seem to mirror his own style: subtle, detailed, and fashion forward in a surprisingly classic way. great picture.

    His shirt might be the same as the shirt worn by Mordechai in your earlier post. Or rather, Mordechai is wearing a Patrik Ervell shirt.

    This photo is exquisite, a perfectly composed painting. The blues, browns and whites. The subject’s simple, quiet intensity. The sets of squares and the graffiti echoing the characters of the sign. Just great. It might make a good companion to that Lempicka-esque shot of yours.

    Maybe he did not take a lot of trouble to get dressed, but perhaps the point here is that he knew how little or much trouble to take.

    patrik is so crushable

    What I like about his style is that it’s reliant on a well designed shirt, good proportions, but is overall simple. It’s how men (and women) should all dress. Of course it works for him, I wouldn’t say all men should wear this but it’s inspiring.

    Oh Patrik, p.s. You should not cut your shoulders with so much of a slope in your shirts. Even the large size makes weird pockets around the base of the neck.

    Tuck his shirt in and add a pair of braces, and you'd have a regular london skinhead.

    reading the comments, i see a conflict, and i think the conflict is there because of the different generations seeing this. a bad comment on the socks might be on its place for some old dude, the younger people
    see that the twists is there on perpose, and perhabs relate a bit more to it.
    knowing that the model (and designer) is patrik ervell
    helps offcouse.
    to me its a hyrbid look. he has the body type, haircut and overall look of some rebel kid or german/new york type of artist back in the days, the jeans is .. late 80íes 90íes. the shirt is both classic yet seems like an updated for contemporary use kind-of-style, the shoes is very artisan and perfectly used (not too damaged not too clean). all very clean. all very young.
    to me this is perfection, preppy without being preppy, clean without being posh.
    street and artisan without being unstylish.
