    his ensemble and bag appear so thoughtful and well-crafted, down to the stripes on the sleeve of his sweater. however, i must question that hair. ugh. really?

    Everything he’s wearing looks too small and tight for him.
    and…the hair. No.

    I love the bag and the boots !!
    I discovered these days your blog and I love it ! It’s amaizing the feeling that in the other part of the world (I’m in Romania – SE of EU) is walking on the street warching other people cloths…it’s a little recognizing that everyone could be imortalized..in that minute..that special minute of his/her life on the street ..I loved it .. thank you :)

    the hair provides a nice contrast to the sweaters. not interested in the boots.

    I am completely hypnotized by the way the patina of the boots play off of the hue of the sweater. Also, I absolutely love the cardigan, and the fact that he’s wearing lots of color!

    I think the expression on his face is reiterated in the condition of his hair. I dig it.

    (a lot of the time)
    i like the hair, it adds a little rocknroll to his look..
    also like the tie-v-neck-cardigan-combo.
    and the composition of the shot as always – wonderful.

    Like almost everyone else who commented, I wish he would have spent equal effort on his tresses. And lighten up a little with at least a smirk!

    he looks good, HOWEVER his jeans are too tight!!!!and he is not malnurished enough to pull them off

    It looks too theatrical. Nothing wrong with that, but the boots and the bag and the hair is too much. Maybe lose 2 and keep the one you like. It’s just what I think, he still looks good. Better than wearing khakis/blue shirt and black leather shoes with 4 inch rubber soles.

    Whenever I first see a SartPic I always wonder what moved Sart to raise his camera? Scarves for sure and any sort of gentlemanliness, but this one is a bit of a puzzle. I think Sart is into ties (scarfyness) and he has embraced the Thom Browne shrunk thing; he likes a “worn in” look but this guy is a puzzler; the hair really troubles me; did Sart ask the guy to ditch his bandana ?

    Great photo, Sart. You’ve managed to capture perfectly this young gentleman’s beautiful cardigan and v-neck vest. And those boots! Simply wonderful. The leather bag looks interesting; I only hope there aren’t dismembered body parts in it (judging by this guy’s facial expression, I wouldn’t doubt it). But the piece de resistance of this photo is the hair. Amazing. I haven’t seen hockey hair like that in years. You’ve outdone yourself again, Sart. Well done.

    are you calling his hair corrupt? because quite frankly, the entire look can’t get much better than that.

    get over the mode mindset of molded haircuts.

    I like the idea of the shawl collar cardigan and the casually unbuttoned button-down. But why the stalker-ish expression old pal? As if to say, “I’ve been watching you….”

    I kind of like the fact that he’s not super skinny yet wearing the jeans/boots combo. Gives it a bit of character. He looks sturdier and like he won’t blow over in the cold NYC winter!

    Don’t like the hair though.

    I think he looks like a man from another time, his hair disheveled from a recent horse-back ride.

    In our time, I think the hair makes his “wild” expression look wilder; not in a good way. But his clothing is brilliantly matched. I’ve rarely seen a man so creatively and well dressed.

    A rather mind-bending collection of allusions.

    Doesn’t really add up.

    Find the bag…sinister.

    It’s nice to see when a person can be stylish and yet have an air of “Oh, I just threw this thing together.” It shows talent to be able to look stylish without giving the impression that you tried to hard.

    The combinations are great, but the pants are waaaaay too tight. I wish the sweater and cardigan were not the same length. I think it adds to the feeling of the clothes being too small for his body. I would also suggest something be done with the hair, but I get the impression that his hair is his calling card.

    I love the print on the V-neck. The Wellington boots are nice too, and I wouldn’t mind seeing men in that pants-in-boots style around here in Boston (which I’ve never seen here). I wish he was smiling though, it wouldn’t make the photo anymore brilliant than it is but he creeps me out a bit (he looks a tad menacing and the hair doesn’t help).

    With this look, he’d better be really good at what he does.

    “lora said…

    and…the hair. No.”

    He’s prob put on some winter pounds..don’t we all? The hair could use some easy attention. I like the contrast of the 60′s prep to 70′s rocker look.

    the hairstyle needs to be fixed. But a good contrast of colors. A Ralph Lauren equestrian look, that he pulls of nicely. I like the thick knit, old varsity sport cardigan. Beautiful bag.

    I feel like if I were to sit down and chat with this guy he’d be an intense conspiracy theorist sipping coffee black of course, but wouldn’t be caught dead in star bucks.
    Just got that face to him. not too mention that great outfit
    mr sartorialist you just never disappoint to make my imagination run. your shots make me believe in style, creativity, and true character again and again.

    I really like this. Boots are excellent and tucked in without looking too “trendy”. And if he was smiling, I think it would ruin the whole thing. You have to believe that he just doesn’t give a damn, he woke up, through all this on, this is who he is, take it or leave. I’m buying into it big time.

    he has lovely legs, just right in my opinion. i would have him just the way he is.
    i like his direct stare right back at you, it makes me think that he is interested in people & quite thoughtful.
    plus – his hair is not unclean, it looks just like mine when i washed it the night before. soft waves.

    the outfit caught my attention & for me – the red in the boots & vest pull it all together.

    thank you

    Really interesting to read the comments and then try to guess the sex/age etc of the author. Nothing nails it better than a pic which creates a geat commentary about one aspect; in this one it’s the hair, simple, just the hair. Could he do this “look” without the wacko hair; nope. Personally I hate that hair, but come on, this is street theater.

    it’s exactly the hair, boot, bag combo that make this look so interesting… as well as the expression. It reminds me of a friend of mine, who really cared about how he dressed, but really didn’t care what other people think of it. i imagine his expression means, “what you want to take a picture?” If all (or two, as one person mentioned) of those things weren’t there, the look would be really great, but it would be entirely different.
