is that singer/songrwriter sondre lerche? Great colour for a pale young man.
April 1, 2007 at 11:02 am
Wow! He looks fantastic, love the knit with the jeans.
April 1, 2007 at 11:38 am
oh we love him.
April 1, 2007 at 12:22 pm
it’s looks simple, but there is something special about him
April 1, 2007 at 12:57 pm
It seems to me that this guy’s photo is featured here is because he’s some celebrity. If he’d been some normal guy walking down the street The Sartorialist wouldn’t even blinked an eye at him.
April 1, 2007 at 1:14 pm
Love the colour..marroon/brown-ish?!great photography!
April 1, 2007 at 2:09 pm
to anon 12:57he is not a celebrity
April 1, 2007 at 2:19 pm
I have to disagree with anonymous (12:5 pm)! Can’t miss a guy like that on the street.
April 1, 2007 at 2:33 pm
a sullen attitude is *the* accessory this season.
April 1, 2007 at 2:49 pm
Large expanse of pale skin, lank, sandy hair, burgundy/garnet-ish knit: all very nice.
April 1, 2007 at 2:55 pm
I think this is fantastic picture — seems so full of brooding energy. Yes I like fashion and dissecting your subject’s style, but photos like this one are what elevate this site.

I would have added a scarf in an off color…but great pic though!
April 1, 2007 at 3:18 pm
Larry Clark’s Tulsa circa 2007. Nice eye.
April 1, 2007 at 3:35 pm
the wrinkled button placket, the unshaven face, and the messy hair all concentrated in the face region just says sloppy to me.
April 1, 2007 at 3:46 pm
The bags under his eyes match his shirt; now that’s what I call accessorizing!
April 1, 2007 at 5:08 pm
i know this guy… and even if its not totally obvious from the photo, he is known for impeccable style.
ps he is not a celebrity, though i wouldnt rule it out in the future
April 1, 2007 at 5:14 pm
This is how you do vintage!! Perfect hair and jeans to go with the vintage knit. You could have said this was 1979 London and I would have believed you.
Except you were probably too young to remember.
April 1, 2007 at 6:09 pm
10:36, that doesn’t look anything like sondre lerche.
April 1, 2007 at 6:18 pm
Vincent Gallo, call your office. Weirdly, this works. And his skin is luminous.
April 1, 2007 at 6:33 pm
he is stunning!
April 1, 2007 at 6:37 pm
I love the simplicity of a great jumper & jeans. His jeans are perfectly matched too, the perfect shade to bring out the beautiful rusty maroon of his jumper. Style doesn’t necessarily have to be clean cut.
April 1, 2007 at 7:16 pm
The color of the sweater – I remember it! but it looks better here, on him.
April 1, 2007 at 8:05 pm
vincent gallo? Not even in the pants.
a dude with lots of vintage appeal.
April 1, 2007 at 8:06 pm
to trendini 3:00pm…
i hated you for saying that.
no scarf, please. it’s not that hot anymore. Everybody is rocking the scarf, it’s not original.
I’m glad he’s just…simple. The scarf would’ve made him butt-ugly and a ‘wannabe’.
April 1, 2007 at 8:08 pm
The simplicity of good taste, the cheek bones, the diffiant look, says it all
April 1, 2007 at 8:31 pm
i love how you manage to make all your subjects look like superstars.
bravo, sart, bravo.
April 1, 2007 at 10:29 pm
My friends and I have a saying for a hair style like this: “slut bangs”. Don’t ask me how or why, just enjoy how it rolls off the tongue. I do like the shirt, though
April 1, 2007 at 10:43 pm
April 1, 2007 at 10:50 pm
Sartorialist, just wondering- do you ask your subjects to pose a certain way, or do you leave it up to them without any suggestion? Thanks
April 2, 2007 at 12:17 am
actually i am pretty sure he goes to NYU..not a celebrity.
April 2, 2007 at 1:26 am
April 2, 2007 at 2:32 am
I think the sweater looks itchy.
April 2, 2007 at 4:06 am
Beautiful picture – lovely color. And I believe it’s right across from the Bleeker St. playground – that funny semi-corner with the deli right next to it. And there’s that little ‘indent’ in the building right there.
I spent many hours at that playground with my daughter…
April 2, 2007 at 6:16 am
HAWT! Love the outfit and the stance.
April 2, 2007 at 11:04 am
my favorite thing about him is his milky white chest! how seductive.
April 2, 2007 at 11:50 am
the knit hangs on him so slightly yet fits perfect a great piece and great color..i think if it were a different color would not make such a rich impact for such a simple piece.
April 2, 2007 at 12:00 pm
his style and attitude reminds me of a young matt dillon in over the edge…
i liked the way boys looked back then! makes me want to wear my jordaches and spritz on some charlie perfume.

April 2, 2007 at 6:20 pm
I’ll take two ; )
April 2, 2007 at 8:26 pm
I agree with Lamere – the beauty of this guy’s pale skin against that dark ruby-coloured maroon makes him worthy of a snap. He’s chosen colours so beautifully for who he is.
There is something very attractive about a man who knows his palette.
April 3, 2007 at 2:30 am
Quite 80s Russian going on here.
I’d definately look twice at him; kinda hot.
April 3, 2007 at 10:48 am
great color and I love the open neckline!
April 4, 2007 at 7:02 am
I sense a little Gerard Depardieu just dyin’ to break out.
April 4, 2007 at 8:59 am
and thankfully, NO TATTOOs!!!!
April 7, 2007 at 5:44 pm
I love you J
April 9, 2007 at 1:03 pm
He looks like a John Varvatos poster boy. Very well put together.
May 12, 2007 at 7:21 am
he is a star, dammit! at least among us, his friends, and i cant believe someone else mentioned Vincent Gallo… only our guy is sexier. he always manages to look so amazingly and effortlessly cool. not to mention he is the guy who wears blue jeans best! SonnyT.;)
May 17, 2007 at 6:26 pm
never in my life have i seen a more stunning vintage look than here. this beautiful man looks exquistite in these autumnal colours. his pale cast skin and fitted jeans are amazing when paired with that burgundy knit. the chest exposure is divine. he is an inspiration to us all!
May 19, 2007 at 9:48 pm
I love a good period piece, yet this vibes of 70s political unrest filtered through 21st century apathy, lost at the Knitting Factory.
May 24, 2007 at 4:31 am
GORGEOUS!! Beautiful colors.
February 11, 2008 at 8:06 am
Not Sondre although I know what you’re saying. A smile may have been nice though, and a lovely hat!!! Nice top though…..
March 27, 2008 at 9:57 am
he looks kind of sad :)but i think that this look goes really great with him :)
October 17, 2009 at 7:34 am
what a gorgeous color! this works on most dudes.
September 27, 2012 at 7:37 pm
Actually not a celebrity (yet!) – I used to date this handsome man in high school. But he’s definitely got fantastic style, so I’m not surprised to see him featured here…
