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.
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!
This photo is amazing! The kind that makes me glad to open your blog in the morning. Sets me in a good mood for the rest of the day :) I'm normally not a fan of sandals as they can easily make people look sloppy but look perfect on this guy.
This picture is so good. I love the composition and the way in which he is bent over the bike tire. I don't have a problem with the flip-flops, I used to wear them all summer long when I was younger. He looks very cool.
Hey….it is a rare thing to see great pictures of us…redhead/strawberry here…. cuz i admit…we are harder to shoot… skin reflects more light.he is kinda rosey so it helps..im pure white..sucks sometimes…. hair changes the color 4 times a day depending on sun weather….it can be blonde…grey..brown..orangey… but… this dude..makes it look so simple and easy…the picture is just natural…. no fashion at all..but at the same time so european…AT SOHO!!!! THATS SOMETHING TO BE REMEMBERED!
My eye travels so effortlessly through this shot. Great framing. His care and focus on his bike really demonstrates that everyone has their own form of art… from fashion to photography to bike maintenance!
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
Can I say more than PERFECT? For sure one of the best in the whole blog. Love the chanel style sweater. Love the raw trousers. Love the brazilian flipflop. Love the scenario. Love his blonde hair. Love the pose.
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.
