It has already been all about the beenie for quite some time! Years! Still good though. Make sure you wear it right, like him. Don’t over do it by pulling it too far back or tucked in. Confidence and structure, pretty much right on top of the head, very little tilt, above the brow, is key!
Very true. The beanie has become a style staple, almost passively so. This picture says as much about style as it does about functionality. I wear a beanie just about every day of fall/winter. Don’t leave home without it!
Let’s be honest, this is just some hipster dude (I’ve got nothing against hipsters). I like the bag and red shoelaces too, but, come on. The best thing about this photo is the bicycle. Long live everyday cycling!
Wow, I think I’m finally over this hipster outdoorsy look. It just looks so anachronistic in the city to wear hiking boots etc. Clearly, he’s a great=looking guy. But it’s so uniform: beanie, leather bag, boots, engineer jacket. I dunno.
Immediately reminded of Monty Python’s “I’m A Lumberjack” song. Especially this verse…
He cuts down trees. He skips and jumps.
He likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women’s clothing
And hangs around in bars?!
He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.
This is a photograph that is a record of a very interesting change in the world where long hair and a purse was in the past just for woman but now it can be seen also as naturally masculine.
That is why street photography such as The Sartorialist is so important and how Mr. Schuman is the August Sander of our time.
I don’t understand why someone would call that look grungy. Anyone seen Kurt Cobain carry that sort of a satchel? Love the composition, I can almost feel the breeze.
Personally, I love guys that can rock long hair. Why are we all so fixated on a man LOOKING like a man? A guy is allowed to have any degree of femininity that he chooses to have… I think we tend to give girls more fashion leverage. And that’s got to change. (And I am a girl)
He must surely know he’s got a good face to rock that kind of hair! And are those natural highlights? And why even keep the hair? What kind of statement is he trying to make? It is almost annoying, but I’ve got to say I respect it anyway because it certainly seems to set him apart.
Grunge? That bag is not grunge, some of these comments are so far out there. Anyways very attractive guy. Love this style even though I do agree it seems to be popping up all over but it still looks good.
I found this pic before on Pinterest and used it for my blog were I post weekly inspiration posts for guys.
This guy would be my ‘perfect man’ (if we are talking about the looks).
Such a fan of long hair and beanies! Please Dutch guys.. get inspired by this! haha.
I don’t think grunge at all when I see this, it actually looks fairly neat besides his hair/facial hair. it looks more like messy hipster compared to those other “hipsters” who have every detail in place. I also find this look really boring, I feel like i’ve seen it 2575847545 times, but i do like the hair
I look at this picture and see all the boys I went to high school with in the early 90s. Despite the leather satchel, this is still a very grunge look which is not a bad thing. Very few men can really pull off that length of hair and look good these days.
why are people looking to have their minds blown every time they come on a fashion site like this one? have you fashion lovers not picked up on the idea of nuance, subtlety and how looks transition into every day life? Scott has captured something that has great elements that make the man and what he’s wearing stand out (i.e. the bag), but allows enough breathing room for the reality of the every day – in other words, how people take special pieces, or trends, or whatever, and actually go about their business and days wearing them.
