Ahh, the men who can pull off cropped pants are few and far between. Which is probably a good thing. This guy looks effortless and great.
September 12, 2009 at 9:22 am
September 12, 2009 at 9:24 am
he looks so cool and his hair is the perfect colour!
September 12, 2009 at 9:33 am
Aren't they cute! Not the sort of cute one can be at age 58, but I can still enjoy the fun of it. Enjoy the cropped boy pants while you can if you like them … these, too, will soon ebb away.
September 12, 2009 at 9:46 am
White pants after Labor Day, cigarette in hand, and shoes without socks…but I do like the shirt!
September 12, 2009 at 9:48 am
Maybe the shot that brings smoking back to its golden age? Maybe not, but, his shoes are awesome!
September 12, 2009 at 9:53 am
September 12, 2009 at 9:54 am
He looks great. The shoes on the woman he is talking to area also cool. There's an interesting detail on the back.
Delicious proportions. Delicious shirt pattern and colour. Delicious hair. Delicious watch. Bad shoes of badness. But overall, delicious. Or did I already mention?
September 12, 2009 at 9:55 am
He is red!
September 12, 2009 at 10:03 am
Is he wearing a Nomos Tangente?
September 12, 2009 at 10:06 am
Love this! So cute!!
i am all about the freckles and hair.
September 12, 2009 at 10:15 am
I like the pose's symbolism: stop girls! look at my phallic cigarette :-)
September 12, 2009 at 10:20 am
I wish George Alan would come back to the runway, I miss him!
September 12, 2009 at 10:22 am
the colours are great for his colouring – the pinky red and the brown shoes
and the pants just need to be longer
September 12, 2009 at 10:26 am
very rockabilly in all ways except the hair, watch and shoes. . .
September 12, 2009 at 10:29 am
Well put together yet simple. Effortless and he looks cool and casual. Sweet.
September 12, 2009 at 10:36 am
There's nothing better in this world than for a woman to see a man dressing perfectly for his shape. Love.
September 12, 2009 at 10:40 am
great look overall.. but something off about belt (and watch band) color vs shoe color.
September 12, 2009 at 10:46 am
I love his look…cigarettes and cancer really do keep you slim, non?
September 12, 2009 at 10:47 am
It's perfect! Italian style in New York City.
September 12, 2009 at 10:48 am
Strawberry blonde – how lovely…
September 12, 2009 at 10:57 am
I love his skin tone and his freckles! And the pink really complements him, unlike most redheads. He looks very chic.
September 12, 2009 at 11:23 am
very nice although I usually don't like white jeans (or white trousers in general).
September 12, 2009 at 11:40 am
September 12, 2009 at 11:48 am
After labor day? tut tut
September 12, 2009 at 11:51 am
I totally adooore the colour-combo of his outfit!!
September 12, 2009 at 12:09 pm
absolutely LOVE! so fantastic!
September 12, 2009 at 12:13 pm
If only he weren't smoking. Everything else is great.
September 12, 2009 at 12:20 pm
Could it be possible to show fewer photographs that include smoking? It is not the best accessory.
P.S. – LOVE the book and bought extra copies for friends.
Everyday Life of an Up and Coming Fashionista
September 12, 2009 at 12:44 pm
I like this look. Cool, Calm and carefree.
September 12, 2009 at 12:47 pm
Long live the Western shirt.
September 12, 2009 at 12:48 pm
Love his outfit. He does amazingly good!
September 12, 2009 at 1:05 pm
Off-topic, but could you do a feature on cufflinks? Vintage perhaps?
Looking forward to the book!
September 12, 2009 at 1:28 pm
I think he looks great. I didn't notice the cigarette until I read all the nasty comments about it.
September 12, 2009 at 1:29 pm
i actually thought off a 1950s american diner when i saw this. the subtle red and white checks, the healthy tan, the almost-coiffed-with-wax hair, and that hint of blue on the woman's scarf in the 2nd pic to round it all off.
i guess the cigarette fits in with that whole feel, but yeah, not that great to glorify the habit.
September 12, 2009 at 1:41 pm
I love the red snaps on his shirt.
September 12, 2009 at 1:54 pm
Haha, the first words that came to my head when I saw this was Tintin.
September 12, 2009 at 2:03 pm
Is this the German actor Florian David Fitz or does this guy just look like him???
September 12, 2009 at 2:35 pm
I desperately want that shirt, pray tell the maker.
September 12, 2009 at 2:36 pm
Of course he's wearing white after labor day- he was born after 1970. He's youthful.
Good style, good hair, good shoes, and so good looking!
September 12, 2009 at 2:41 pm
I like the freckles and the pointy nose…and the cigarette doesn't bother me, i think it makes it real and more Euro appeal. The pants are pretty great.A good look without trying too hard (always appealing)
September 12, 2009 at 2:47 pm
He is stunning, what a handsome fellow.
September 12, 2009 at 2:48 pm
Love this look! I guess you find more people outside smoking now that there are laws against it indoors.
September 12, 2009 at 3:00 pm
i loved the cropped pants, and his friends marc jacobs heels are adorable!!

September 12, 2009 at 3:18 pm
The only fault – and serious – on this this website: show many pictures with people smoking, it gives a bad example, since smoking is one of the worst evils which mankind has accepted as "normal." Currently, there is nothing elegant smoking. It's ugly and stupid.
Fix this please. Just use the "photoshop", and public health thanks.
September 12, 2009 at 3:20 pm
September 12, 2009 at 3:22 pm
white pants after labor day?
September 12, 2009 at 3:32 pm
The only thing that would make this beautiful and well dressed man practically PERFECT…would be losing that cigarette.
Losing the cigarette seems to be a more popular theme on your blog these days…..maybe…..hopefully")
September 12, 2009 at 3:42 pm
the henry holland look
September 12, 2009 at 4:04 pm
Men who can pull off cropped pants ARE few and far between, but let's not forget the sine qua non of cropped pants — Pee Wee Herman!
September 12, 2009 at 4:05 pm
Personally I just love the shiney buttons!http://fashionpearlsofwisdom.blogspot.com/
September 12, 2009 at 4:35 pm
He's like a cheeky Tom Sawyer-esque character all grown up; into a stylish, though not quite jaded, young man.
September 12, 2009 at 4:39 pm
Now THIS guy's got confidence. I love how, from the waist up, he looks like a Soc from The Outsiders, and from the waist down he looks like… well, he just looks amazing. I adore the shoes.
Nevermind, I adore it all. (:
September 12, 2009 at 4:42 pm
Sorry to "go there", but between the red hair, freckles, and red gingham shirt, it looks like Howdy Doody has grown up…and he's smokin'!
September 12, 2009 at 4:54 pm
if any of you sanctimonious non smokers are under the slightest impression that your tut-tutting and sneering self-righteous disapproval is getting anyone to consider quitting…
well, it just seems such a waste of all that extra energy, vim and vigor that you lot are supposed to have.
the F word
September 12, 2009 at 5:03 pm
i love this outfit it so nice and put together so well it looks effortless
September 12, 2009 at 5:11 pm
well done…white pants after labor day cigarette and all. all those rules are out the window now and he looks amazing.
September 12, 2009 at 5:12 pm
amazing. white pants after labor day cigarette and all. all those rules are for the boring folks. well done!
September 12, 2009 at 5:13 pm
mmm mmm! i LIKE this guy! everything is so simple and clean, but soo soo perfect!!
September 12, 2009 at 5:37 pm

September 12, 2009 at 7:16 pm
I LOVE the shoes. They're worn in so well, with so much character.
September 12, 2009 at 7:22 pm
the pink shirt goes so well with his hair color. i also love the length of the pants with the shoes
September 12, 2009 at 7:27 pm
gingers should wear red more often. it shows confidence without being cocky. its also nice to see a cropped pant that doesn't follow the haphazardly-rolled trend. i love these photos.
September 12, 2009 at 7:51 pm
love the cropped pants but especially his hair! so gorgeous
September 12, 2009 at 8:28 pm
Shame about the cigarette – always spoils the shots.
September 12, 2009 at 8:40 pm
This guy is just SUPERB!! CONGRATULATIONS!! Beautiful combinations of colors and the shoes…!! Man..i don't have words!!
September 12, 2009 at 9:00 pm
oooh. i like the outfit very much. i might try it one of these days. haha.

not many men can pull off pink this well, let alone white pants.
September 12, 2009 at 10:10 pm
Man, I wish to pull stuff off like this. Perfect or really close to it at least.
September 12, 2009 at 11:09 pm
God, what a doll.
September 12, 2009 at 11:50 pm
Scrumdiddlyumptious. Also an outfit that can be translated into womenswear.
September 12, 2009 at 11:51 pm
Those shoes are where it's at.
September 13, 2009 at 12:04 am
His look is simple, yet somehow he makes it his own.And those white pants!! very lovely and well cut…This is such a clean and fresh look!! :) His oxfords are really nice, too <3
September 13, 2009 at 1:11 am
This is probably one of my favorites. But not many could pull that off
September 13, 2009 at 2:49 am
Another rebel without a cause :)
September 13, 2009 at 3:45 am
mmm. Cutie. Looks likes half of these comments are about his actual looks, not his clothes. :)
September 13, 2009 at 5:50 am
Cool, young, slim, and sexy things. All of a sudden I feel old and fat.
September 13, 2009 at 6:35 am
Cigarettes always expand the sophistication. Would it were otherwise.
September 13, 2009 at 8:53 am
He looks like quite a beauty now…but will he still be as well dressed when he is pulling an oxygen tank around in his later years?
September 13, 2009 at 9:31 am
Gorgeous. And she's not bad either.
September 13, 2009 at 12:12 pm
you can tell he knows he looks good. confidence is the best accessory. i'm amused by the requests to not include smokers in your blog as it sets a bad example. if a photo on a blog is all it takes for kids to start smoking, that's a reflection on the parents. i've never been to NYC, but isn't there a stereotype that new yorkers smoke?

September 13, 2009 at 12:23 pm
Ah, this look is so wonderful! I love that he chose white pants instead of denim. I think the pants are cropped a little too high, but it doesn't matter. He pulls of this gorgeously sexy 50's look with panache.
September 13, 2009 at 12:42 pm
I'm not a smoker and I personally don't approve of it, but suggesting that the Sartorialist excludes photos of people with cigarettes or photoshops them out is pretty ridiculous. I guess we all have our crazy opinions though; for me it's tattoos that ruin a perfectly good photograph.
September 13, 2009 at 12:53 pm
so cool! And I love the vibe of the second picture.
September 13, 2009 at 12:57 pm
…definitely dig his style, the shirt, the shoes, the watch (could be a Glashütte NOMOS Tangente, indeed) the fit of his trousers – BUT the color is a little bit… eeww
September 13, 2009 at 2:10 pm
his hair, the brick wall, the buttons on his shirt, the shirt itself, his skin tone. Its crazy how they all work together in one palette. I love it.
plus, he's pretty cute
September 13, 2009 at 3:13 pm
Those shoes, those pants, and that shirt.J'adore.
September 13, 2009 at 5:08 pm
Love the body language…
September 13, 2009 at 5:32 pm
He is making me think of all those boys that dressed similarly back in the late 50's – early 60's.Very cute.And I love that pink.
September 13, 2009 at 5:58 pm
I agree – what a sanctimonious lot. And to the person who actually suggested that the cigarette be Photoshopped out of the picture! Shame on you. Like or not, the boy was smoking a cig, and it is the photographer's job to document, not to change reality. And really, if you don't like smoking, just don't.
(PS, I'm not a smoker. So there.)
(PPS, the whole "Don't wear white after Labor Day" rule is antiquated and lame. It's the 21st century, people.)
All that crap aside, HOW CUTE IS HE. I love everything about his outfit, especially all the cuffing and rolling going on.
September 13, 2009 at 9:50 pm
Following on from an earlier Sart posting, I love the watch – modern lines but classic: silver with a leather band. Does anyone know which brand it is?
September 14, 2009 at 3:53 am
i like that the watch band and belt match and his shoe and hair color match. That's aside from the great shirt. One of my favorites so far.
September 14, 2009 at 9:13 am
Loooooove his shoes, love her shoes
September 14, 2009 at 10:24 am
Nice colors, nice style…very smooth.Really like it
September 14, 2009 at 12:13 pm
Sorry, capri pants are never right on a man. They just aren't.
September 14, 2009 at 12:25 pm
He's definitely hit a bullseye…which I hate. And the cigarette is never cool, just tells me he smells poorly. Much more interested in the understated lady with the cool shoes and splash of scarf against the plain white tank. She's sheik, he's geek. As always, beautiful photo.
September 14, 2009 at 12:52 pm
Love Love Love it
September 14, 2009 at 1:17 pm
perfect (minus the cigarette)
September 14, 2009 at 2:39 pm
effortlessly matched with white jeans (which i normaly hate)and a pink shirt (which i always love). te amo !
September 14, 2009 at 3:00 pm
I'm not gonna lie dude looks very cool. I'm felling the cap toe

September 14, 2009 at 3:36 pm
September 14, 2009 at 6:25 pm
nice fit, although those shoes are a bit too trendy.
September 14, 2009 at 9:38 pm
Sart, please don't stop capturing life just as it is, cigarettes (gasp!) and all. Like his smoke, that debate is getting stale.
September 14, 2009 at 11:11 pm
so pulled together! u should always work the hair colour, i know it too, im also a redhead.
though it sure looks like he thought it all through (is that spell correctly?) seems to me, as a postcard of casual confidence creates elegance
September 15, 2009 at 12:44 pm
Enough of health fascism on the fashion site! Lighten up, people, tut-tut your families, please. You are bores.
September 16, 2009 at 12:40 am
let's get over the cigarette. it's about fashion–and his, well it's beautiful :)
September 16, 2009 at 12:58 am
I REALLY don't think for one minute that Sart is "glorifying" smoking, for chrissakes. A lot of people happen to smoke nowadays, and some of them just happen to look good.
September 16, 2009 at 7:40 am
The Clever Pup
September 16, 2009 at 8:18 am
He looks like a nice guy.
September 17, 2009 at 6:40 pm
All these anti-smoking comments make me feel SICK – ironically!
Get a life people – showing photos of people smoking isn't glorifying it, it's a fact of life. You don't like smoking? THEN DON'T SMOKE!
I never have smoked and never will but I don't have anything against looking at photos of people smoking. I have my own will and make up my own mind – pictures of fashionable people smoking do not make me think that "smoking = fashion."
I'm sorry that most of you might fall into that category.
Too many freakin' bleeding-heart PC bullies out there – chill out and let everyone live their lives.
Including this find young man, and Sart.
September 17, 2009 at 6:42 pm
PS I think Kevin at 5:58 said it better than I just did :)
September 21, 2009 at 4:32 am
This look is sooo HOT right now. Very big in Melbourne, Australia. He's cute!
September 28, 2009 at 11:00 am
what a beautiful young man! his hair is gorgeous, and he dresses himself so well with his colouring + body. love the single cuff on the white pants.
November 22, 2009 at 11:15 am
this guys's style is unquestionable. wish i could also pull-off this look – rei (email@example.com) :)
April 16, 2012 at 12:18 am
I thought we moved beyond the “no white after Labor Day” thing a while ago… I think it’s more about the weight of the fabric relative to the weather than a hard and fast rule anymore… what makes a winter white “winter”? –tho, I do find it hard to break this rule myself. I was chastised this winter for wearing my cream and caramel spectators – Thinking, “Well, who died and left you in charge…?” LOL!
