The top photo looks like he is trying too hard. Too many things going on at once. The boots, the sweater, the scarf, the shirt, the reflective sunglasses. It overwhelms me. I like the sweater in the bottom photo. The details are fun to see. I’m a traditionalist when it comes to blue jeans, so I’d rather see a pair of Levis 505s, but the sweater carries the day.
It seems to me that these types of knits go in and out of favor with fashion. I particularly like updated takes on traditional knits; the picture on the bottom has rugby-type shoulder and elbow reinforcements, and that is something fresh that lets you know it is not your father’s sweater. I also complimented someone on a Carolina Herrera for Men sweater with a very limited amount of argyle down the front. I think these pictures show a fresh approach, although not one to buy if one expects the clothes to remain current past this season. Love the pictures, btw. Jorge from West Palm Beach
This is a great fresh take on the old tired Norwegian sweater. This garment looks like it got on a plane in Bergen and landed in Tokyo and was attacked by thousands of little Japanese girls with scissors.
Lovely! Can I take this opportunity to say that I’d love to see more shots of stylish young men here. Oh, and some of the photos you posted over on style.com were fabulous. I really enjoyed looking through them.
the first fellow looks really silly from the crazy stand up hair do to the skull scarf and those horrible boots. this is a terrible look. not crazy about guy #2 either. what’s up with the patch on sweater?
i am not a big fan of the first sweater, not going to lie. however, his hair is pretty much awesome, as are his gold sunglasses. also the way he looks at the camera. the second one reminds me of ashton kutcher. whether the patch is there as a mending or not, i still like it. if it was purposefully put there, props to him.
