    … junge sartorialist? warum?
    anyway …, his outfit is so modern, yet not pretentious, so berliner!
    Makes dark and black hues look fresh.
    have a nice day!

    Oh, I like it, I like it a lot!
    So cool and yet looking so effortless.
    Lovely about him is the casual look which he pulls of and even upgrades with the aviators and the little scarf.
    The jeans I don’t love, they seem so loose, and not really matching, but somehow he’s able to pull it of. Maybe it’s just the thing – NOT going for the swedish/british famished rocker -look in skimpy jeans. Also, the almost boring hair-cut works really well with the shape of his face – and gives the whole look a sophisticated twist.
    And of course it doesn’t harm him, the fact that he’s so cute, with rather perfect skin. ;D
    The young Sartorialist, indeed!

    He’s perfect. Cool and neat in well-fitting casual clothes not covered in designer logos. Most impressively, the young gentleman somehow manages to take the fussiness out of the often dangerous neck kerchief. A brilliant look and a brilliant photo.

    In what world can you get away with a kerchief around the neck? Apparently Berlin.

    He is cool. Love the natty neckerchief!
    The elements are all very simple – classic even – and put together in a comtemporary hipster way that doesn’t scream “I’m trendy”. (Even though he probably hangs out at all the edgy bars and clubs and has a circle of fashion / art / design / music pals that are all super-cool too…)

    Like the scarf and its use best. But when pants of this extreme slimness are actually hanging, well…

    that’s cool. but the scarf makes him a bit of a dandy…no? the jeans, v-neck sweater, and white t-shirt was my uniform for a couple of years. its looks right. good fit.

    The aviators are always good…but, he takes the cake, with that face and slender frame.

    Would you please consider changing the settings of this blog so that comments show up in a pop-up window? It would make viewing and responding to a post much easier. I have found it a huge improvement to my own blog, as well as others on which I have seen it implemented.

    As for this picture, I have to love the scarf–makes the all the difference.

    I’m slowly learning the German look so I’m reserving my comment for now except to say, it’s very nicely put together as a whole.

    Minus the scarf though.

    I love it. It’s refreshing to see young guys wearing just a few basic pieces and doing fresh things with them. All out hipsters are great and all, but his look is age-appropriate, fashion forward and very classic/clean at the same time.

    I love it! It simple and clean and he’s got a nice jaw that goes so well with the aviators! Also, I think keeping the hair simple was great because anything funkier and he would have killed the look. . . don’t you think?

    Comparisons to Dior? People just assume whenever they see a slim outfit, that it’s influenced by Dior.

    A tired look, replicated by one too many. Un-flattering and generic.

    He is a beautiful boy. I feel that Truman Capote would have have had a mad, passionate crush on him. Love the combo. Politely, subtly decedant. Bravo, sart. I love your eye. xoxoox, Lady

    This is a very derivative look, copied from Bowie circa 1977…in Berlin.

    Haha, the facial expression really resembles that of Scott – despite the fact that this German Junge is 10+ years younger than our beloved photographer.
    Look how the umbrellas in the back make up the whole atmosphere of the foto. Well done!

    Doesn’t anyone else think the aviators are proportionately a bit large for the face? When do the antennae appear?

    The aviators are appropriately sized and the composition of his outfit makes them look modern and suprisingly not pose-y. I agree, they’re jacked a little high, but he has a high forehead and he’s being photographed from below, so . . . I suspect the fit of the sunglasses was completely considered, as is everything else in the ensemble.

    terrific belt, i love accessories things that look worn (or worn looking, but simply worn is better), i mean, you’d never get away with a worn t-shirt and a fresh belt, but the other way round, splendid!

    what an amazingly good-looking boy.
    my modern hero.
    would be awesome to meet him one day and examine this piece of perfect appearance with my own eyes.

    fell in love right away. he looks just as tasty as HäagenDasz IceCream, especially because of the neck kerchief. must open him the doors to all the trendy places in berlin.

    on the whole: a guy berlin can be proud of.
