i prefer the first poselove that vest/grey sweater coordination
December 20, 2006 at 8:17 am
I’ve never been a big fan of the androgynous look but if one must do it, this dandy has pulled it off quite smashingly.
December 20, 2006 at 8:36 am
What I am learning —- When in doubt, wear a big scarf.
December 20, 2006 at 8:48 am
I think this outfit is still pretty feminine. Take away the broad-shouldered jacket and it looks like something a lot of female New Yorkers would wear. It’s mostly in the woman’s face and her stance that makes the whole look more manly to me.

my god that look amazingly weird but soooo sexy!
December 20, 2006 at 9:30 am
sometimes there’s so little difference between a man and a woman.
December 20, 2006 at 9:36 am
My opinion? …….Absolutely not!!!!
December 20, 2006 at 9:56 am
Like it a lot!!! Classy.
December 20, 2006 at 10:00 am
i love everything about it.
December 20, 2006 at 10:06 am
hi! Love the photos u take, interesting to see the styles and that taste are divided as our behind :-) Take much pics myself but I live in north of sweden in arctic cirkle and no big city life here…

i love this look…his face/hair actually really inspire me because i have a high hairline, too, and im always self-conscious about my forehead looking like it needs its own zip code if i dont have bangs or if i pull it back like that, but he pulls it off.
sart, you need to start asking these people where each piece is from because i want to swoop on that jacket he has—i’m only half kidding.
December 20, 2006 at 10:30 am
Martin always looks amazing! Prettiest boy I’ve ever seen.
December 20, 2006 at 10:34 am
What is this???It’s a man or a woman?
December 20, 2006 at 10:40 am
Ah-hem … sorry but where is the male half part ??? …
December 20, 2006 at 10:53 am
I love this look. Androgyny is the new black.
December 20, 2006 at 11:00 am
Janvangoghif you look at this photo and only see a a big scarf then you gotta look a little closer.
December 20, 2006 at 11:03 am
this is a man, right?
December 20, 2006 at 11:11 am
What a marvelous — or should I say incroyable — jacket! So 1794.
December 20, 2006 at 11:15 am
Reminds me of the young Brett Anderson (of Suede).
December 20, 2006 at 11:20 am
This person looks more like a guy.
December 20, 2006 at 11:23 am
yes, he often looks lovely. am well into androgyny.
December 20, 2006 at 11:38 am
The black states that he is not as ethereal as he might look. Love the boots with the rest of the outfit; the boots help to make all the silhouette proportional.
I love gender ambiguity in fashion, in my book he is perfect… we have enough rules in all other aspects of life.
December 20, 2006 at 11:44 am
Very Unique and androgynous of course, gorgeous face, and oh my god! this guy should eat a little more….so thin!!! but he has a really cool style…I love new york…Thanks Sart you inspired me everyday!
December 20, 2006 at 11:47 am
This is wonderful. In looking at him (and it is clearly and beautifully a him), I tried to decide which items blurred the male-female distinction. Was it the boots and big bag, the legging-like pants and blousey, hip-high top, or…?
Of course it’s everything, including his fine, fine features, languid, backward-tilted stance, and, and, and. So interesting to deconstruct sexual persona, no?
December 20, 2006 at 12:15 pm
Sart, I got news for ya, there ain’t nothing “men’s” about this!
December 20, 2006 at 12:18 pm
Martin smokes Yves Saint Laurent cigarettes.
December 20, 2006 at 12:41 pm
hhhmmm…i am failing to see a negative thing here. Looks like a good looking fashion savy New Yorker.The jacket is stellar.
December 20, 2006 at 12:50 pm
i’m completely jealous. this is how i would LIKE to dress every day.
December 20, 2006 at 12:52 pm
RE: “is he a model?” He’s with DNA.
December 20, 2006 at 12:53 pm
December 20, 2006 at 12:57 pm
Um, is this a man or a woman? I think man. But at least one comment above states otherwise.
I like it when you do this. It shows the versatility and uniformity of style.
December 20, 2006 at 1:10 pm
to anonymous at 12:18
oh, i love it! that is just the best window into his personality.
December 20, 2006 at 1:36 pm
beautiful as art object. . . but in reality, i don’t think that being this thin is any nicer for the gentlemen than it is for the ladies.
December 20, 2006 at 1:50 pm
i LOVE this one!!
December 20, 2006 at 2:00 pm
Hi Sart (hope I can call you that).
Yes, there is much more to this photo than the scarf.
Was thinking out loud. What can I learn from all these photos you post? I would also say wear skinny pants, but there are just some things some people really shouldnt do. :-)
December 20, 2006 at 2:46 pm
It’s all so perfect, and the icing on the cake is his beautiful YSL Rive Gauche bag.
December 20, 2006 at 2:48 pm
I love that jacket too. Where is it from, anyone??
December 20, 2006 at 3:22 pm
December 20, 2006 at 3:28 pm
“It’s mostly in the woman’s face and her stance that makes the whole look more manly to me.”
…but it’s a man! No, a boy. Wait… a man-boy. Whoa, he is pretty feminine… whoo boy.
The bag and the boots spell “girl” to me. Everything else is unisex — I don’t think the clothes or the pose are otherwise very girly. He looks great, there’s nothing here I can find fault with.
December 20, 2006 at 4:02 pm
while this person was clearly referencing current trends via the compilation of various stand-out pieces—he also appears to want to look like a womasn… and this was more about gender identity than a love for fashion. i would guess this is the farthest he could go w/o the ‘in drag’ connontation— not judging—but this was more than a fashion move
December 20, 2006 at 4:32 pm
Love the jacket. If I see him, I’m going to snatch it off him. He’s so malnourished, he doesn’t look like he’d be able to put up much of a fight. : )Some of the models at the John Varvatos shows this Fall looked just like this; I wonder if he walked in that show…
December 20, 2006 at 4:42 pm
This guy looks amazing, but I’m tired of seeing men carrying women’s handbags…It’s really getting quite old.
December 20, 2006 at 4:46 pm
I don’t know whether this is a man or a woman…I suspect a man because of the legs. Either way it looks pretty great.
December 20, 2006 at 4:47 pm
Sexy. Ex looked like him. Hope he hasn’t got a drug habit that matches the ex.
December 20, 2006 at 5:25 pm
I’m in love.
love martin cohen.can you believe he’s only 17?
December 20, 2006 at 5:32 pm
December 20, 2006 at 6:06 pm
December 20, 2006 at 7:39 pm
martin cohn….dna model
awesome look; it takes guts for a guy to try and pull something like that off.
December 20, 2006 at 7:42 pm
My favorite quote in recent history: “Be a good animal; trust your instincts.” – D.H. Lawrence
Being in the moment, our young fellow can carry off this look for awhile, as he is not yet grown into a fully-mature man.
But what will he do in ten or twenty years, and beyond? I’d love to see…
It’s good you captured the moment now. Perfection only lasts for a brief time, like the sun at midday.
Touch of reality,
December 20, 2006 at 7:46 pm
Kristin, you say “this was more about gender identity than a love for fashion”
Fashion is not about material aspects only, it is about how an individual presents him or herself to others, gender statements included: surfaces, attitude, and behavior.
The fact that he transgresses existent norms on gender does not happen in a different “realm”, it happens in, & thanks to the potential of fashion.
So I would disagree, about excluding fashion from gender identity.
What would Mr Galliano say?!
December 20, 2006 at 8:35 pm
Whose boots are these??? Gotta have em.
I agree about it being a more feminine look overall, but the face and hairstyle of this young man is very androgynous. Would be amused by him, I think, if I actually had to have a conversation, though.
December 20, 2006 at 8:51 pm
He has a very individual look … in the world of modelling (both male & female) it’s imperative that you stand out & are remembered … Casting Directors etc… see a million other guys so fashion is usually the best way to be remembered … it’s the same in London, Paris, Milan, N.Y … he should go to Paris – he’ll make major $$$ there – A bit to editorial for the commercial capital that is N.Y … Anyways, he looks amazing!
December 20, 2006 at 9:14 pm
The bag is fantatic. Is it really YSL? Bummer. I was hoping I could afford it…
December 20, 2006 at 11:05 pm
hey he kinda looks like jennifer connolley.
December 21, 2006 at 12:51 am
Martin is amazing!, and only 17 mind you.
luomo vogue, paris vogue, italian vogue, the list goes on and on…
super chic-boy ^_^
and DEAD serious too.
December 21, 2006 at 2:28 am
what do these boys carry in their purses? really now.
December 21, 2006 at 2:49 am
i simply love this picture, i simply can not stop staring at it.
December 21, 2006 at 6:17 am
I don’t like gaunt men :S
December 21, 2006 at 10:07 am
“I don’t like gaunt men :S” …. In the world of high fashion you somewhat need to be … In the world of high fashion modelling it’s somewhat necessary – male & female
December 21, 2006 at 4:19 pm
So, apparently he’s a NYC model. I thought this site was to feature regular street fashion, not professionals…let GQ and Vogue do that.
December 21, 2006 at 4:52 pm
To Anon 4:19He is a model wearing his own clothes so to me he qualifies.
I didn’t even know he was a model when I stopped him – I thought maybe…professional football player or bouncer or bodyguard
December 21, 2006 at 5:58 pm
For someone who is only 17, his style is flawless. He is inspiring, which at the end of the day is what it’s all about!
December 22, 2006 at 1:53 am
I saw this boy on the subway once. He reminded me of Johnny Depp, particularly Johnny Depp as Edward Scissorhands. (I didn’t know this but after looking over the comments, it appears he’s a model?)
December 22, 2006 at 2:20 am
To anonymous 10:07- I think it’s sad that you think being gaunt is necessary in order to make it in fashion. What’s even sadder is the possibility that you could be right.
December 22, 2006 at 8:38 am
“professional football player or bouncer or bodyguard ” hahaha! excellent!
December 22, 2006 at 9:25 am
gosh so many comments about how thin he is. it’s likely that he’s naturally thin and what’s he to think if he were to read all these comments? this is about clothing people! it’s such a no no to talk about how fat someone is and being told you’re too thin can be just as devastating. imagine reading comments about your own sart photo. geesh! anyway great job scott! love this guys look! i’m so inspired and think the bag and hair are killer.
December 22, 2006 at 10:52 am
To Anon 2:02: Hear, hear! I would love to see BMI standards imposed on Fashion Week etc.
December 22, 2006 at 11:13 am
secco forte è?
December 22, 2006 at 4:09 pm
He is just so beautiful and stylish
December 22, 2006 at 11:16 pm
the jacket is ann demeuelemeester. i encouraged him to buy it.
we’re no longer friends.
December 23, 2006 at 5:17 pm
if you changed the motorcycle boots with hot black high heels – it would change the whole look and make it more feminine. Love the look, he’s adorable (and those lips!!!)
December 24, 2006 at 1:20 pm
he looks fantastic and somehow i doubt he would be devastated by being told he was too thin.
December 26, 2006 at 11:27 am
Im, eh, ah, Im in l-l-love! martin cohen? where can I see more of him?
December 26, 2006 at 2:47 pm
i love the shoes…Which designer??? want them…
December 26, 2006 at 5:16 pm
who is martin?
December 27, 2006 at 6:23 am
What a beautifully proportioned face, in any gender. Great jacket too. Few people could get away with it with such ease.
January 3, 2007 at 8:10 pm
It IS a boy, Jenny.
Either way, I think he pulls it off great. I love seeing androgynous looks in the city and we rarely get to see many guys try it.
January 4, 2007 at 1:28 am
His last name is Cohn not Cohen. And he’s simply beautiful. Wish he would do more modeling work.
I absolutely adore this outfit, especially the coat. It fits him perfectly!
January 5, 2007 at 7:44 am
OMG he was HOT :)
January 6, 2007 at 2:33 pm
i’m in love!
August 17, 2007 at 2:28 am
smasching darn good, he stands!
December 27, 2007 at 3:57 pm
How can you not love those boots? I’d probably wear them around the house just because I could.
April 10, 2008 at 7:59 pm
vraiment. he’s perfect.
July 9, 2008 at 1:32 pm
this looks like something you would see in a prada ad in GQ! love it, and want it
February 18, 2009 at 8:21 am
This guy goes to my gym. When he walks in the men’s locker room it always causes quite a stir. Everyone thinks a woman just walked in. He is so beautifully unusual.
May 11, 2009 at 5:16 am
Im so jealous!!He looks amazing..
May 28, 2009 at 5:50 pm
god. he got it. style is alive
July 29, 2009 at 1:54 pm
Me gustaria que los jovenes en mi pais se atrevieran a vestir con tal exquisito look. Manuel (Chile)

December 27, 2010 at 12:20 pm
I like both model and look !
August 22, 2011 at 3:12 pm
I like the first pose! he looks like a very cool guy to know.
September 14, 2011 at 12:25 pm
this guy would be so, so screwed in jail.
November 10, 2011 at 7:51 am
Perfect indie style for a good indie night!!
December 21, 2014 at 11:06 pm
He looks like a man. I suppose a woman could wear that very well, though.
