    agreed on all counts and OF COURSE it doesn’t count that he is incredibly cute to begin with.

    also it’s a good thickness. usually they are too thick and too long.

    the one thing idon’t understand is why people like the shiny, flat jeans thing. how long is that going to last?

    Jen is right about his posture … good posture is profoundly important in looking stylish and confident (and you can order it over the internet for next to nothing!!)

    Unlike most ‘puffer vests’ (which are atrocious) this one is actually tolerable for the reasons you mention, Sart, although it seems ‘too short’ for the sweatshirt he’s wearing underneath … which would leave a band of shirt hanging down below the vest.

    I’ve never been a fan of the white running shoes beyond athletic activities, especially with dark pants.

    he is adorable! it looks like he borrowed his trendy dad’s hunting vest. asian guys are so elegant when they are well dressed. those slim frames are perfect. i know ’cause my boyfriend is korean and a total clotheshorse and addicted to thom browne. ;)

    I must tell you that I am so happy to have discovered this blog. Most people in my circles have no clue about fine clothing and the way to dress. I thought of starting a blog dedicated to good clothes, but now that I discovered you, I can concentrate on my own blog, which links right back here.

    A co-worker told me about your blog today and I am thrilled with the work you are doing. I am a former New Yorker that has been missing the city very much, and you place the people and places squarely back into my experience. Continue the fabulous work! All the best,

    what an adorable guy. I wish he would have a better posture though.

    A nice-looking young man. I (joining the nitpickers here) wish his pant legs were a little shorter. But he pulls off the vest nicely. Short vests are great if you have a slender waist and hips, as he does.

    P.S. Shiny flat jeans forever!

    Agree with the thickness view, often they are too thick, but this is perfectly thin. But the sweater underneath is the clincher for me (slight obsession with sweaters, you see). And that dude has a really cool smile. You can see he’s not trying to be sartorial at all. He just chucked his jeans, sweater and puffer vest, and off he went. So cool man.

    Gorgeous. Would probably be improved by the absence of the fisherman’s waistcoat though(or even better, by the absence of any drapery at all)

    oh this guy is cute! cute as a button sort of cute.

    i was just telling all my friends they should get gilets (although i’m in sydney…and it’s approaching summer here)because it’s so chic. It’s not a gangster garment anymore- it’s suave sporty. They were saying somewhere how it looks great when they wear one on top of a suit. i’m yet to find a guy innovative enough to do that- I certainly hope you do!

    excellent jacket. the vertical stitching that stops before the edge is a nice touch. very good design and nice shot. lovely smile.

    This guy is paint by numbers. Looks like he just walked out of a catalog with his very neat sneakers. He’s a little too clean or something…can’t palce it.

    Eugene has come a long way, stylistically speaking. You should do a before and after sort of thing with this!

    His style has certainly grown since this picture.
