    the picture is amazing but i think sandals would be better instead of flip-flops

    the first thing I think is "unisex"! swap the flip flops for some heels and this could be a picture of a woman.

    He's great. He looks as if he's going to hop up and sing a song in a musical (think West Side Story of today)! I agree with Katie about his outfit feeling unisex. These tops are my uniform.

    He could be anyplace in Europe but he's right here in the good old USA! Love his style and grace, and his unstructured "I really don't give a darn, this is what I threw on this afternoon" attitude. Lovely young man.

    the scene is great, the guy is adorable, but everyone is wearing this these days, especially the striped shirts…it's boring already, in my opinion. although, yes, some people can no doubt rock it.

    No offense to the fellow. He seems swell. I just don't need to see any more flat, pale feet in 'shower shoes.'

    One word: delicious.
    Strawberry blonde/pale ginger hair is one of my favourite things in the world!

    His look isn't anything to write home about but that's part of the charm – the simplicity, and how comfortable he looks in himself.

    What makes the picture for me is the contrast between his array of angular limbs and the delicate round wheel in the centre.

    It's funny how so many people are down on flip flops – 'jandals' are de rigueur on the city streets in Spring in New Zealand.
    I guess it comes down to whether you prefer your foots to feel stylish or just freeee!

    The photo is simply beautiful… it suggests a story and draws the viewer in. Love the guy's look, too, which is surprising since I normally really dislike rolled cuffs, but when something iffy works as a part of a whole, it works!

    Also, count me as one of the people who doesn't understand the flip-flop hatred in some other comments. People with style can rock just about anything. And, honestly, I find a pair of worn-in flip-flops a heck of a lot more stylish than an "it" bag or what I think of as "sex & the city shoes." Fussy, pretentious, and precious are just not chic.

    He sits on a bench
    Staring at it
    Wondering what to do
    With a piece of the whole
    Knowing that nobody sees its full potential
    Not even him
    And he marvels at the subtle complexity
    Of so common a thing
    As a bicycle wheel

    honestly, people? All of these comments and only 2 about one of the most obvious style choices he made …the rolled up chinos. So much can be said about them, much more than the sandals. He's in the middle of NYC, clearly not a beach in sight, and yet still looks like he's ready for the Hamptons. It's a fantastic look juxtaposed against the urban background.

    Those pants could only work for that hair color. They make the picture. I'm jealous.

    That’s a old french t-shirt they use it for decades, a sailor’s t-shirt. A real nice photo. Everything OK, sexy feet, flipflops in Brazil they call havaianas
