    This is just not a look for me. It is only made worse by the white trainers. These should only be worn to the gym, or in this case, long distance marathons.

    I read about you on aftonbladets homepage, Sofi Fahrman did an interview with you. I didn’t know you’re a father! That’s great – I bet they look goog and will grow up to by very stylish youngpeople!

    This guy is all profile, so to speak. There’s something amiss about the very narrow pants and the fabric bunching at the ankle: spoils the (all-line-all-the-time) line. But his hair is perfect.

    Am I the only one who’s getting the whole JK (of Jamoroquai) vibe? Very cool,downtown street fashion at its best, down to the trainers mademoiselle!

    I am struck with the repeated pictures of NYC fellas all in black except for pristinely white shoes.

    Hairy man! I wish more men will go hairy for a while…just for fun.
    Of course not that many people like his young attitude that spells noncomformity…El Che kind of finds a follower in mr. hairy.

    The beard and hair are a little too Charles Manson for me.

    I like longer hair on men, like the guy with the scarf and jacket. This isn’t groomed enough for me.

    Very Coldplay-ish….I like the poofy hair up top contrasting with the skinny profile. he pulls off the alt rock look pretty well, looks like a chill guy.

    I look at this and see Daniel Day-Lewis! I love it….the Sartorialist photo as rorshach test! Or something.

    Very “I work for an alternative weekly paper.” Not loving it but liking it.

    More than anything else, I’m put off my the ciggy. A true faux pas if there ever was one.

    Now, while I knew you were a daddy, Sart, it occurs to me that I’ve never seen a kiddie fashion pic in the time that I’ve lurked here. We’ve seen teens, but not kids.

    He’s perfect..there’s something I really like about this picture but I can’t really put my finger on it.

    He looks like Vincent Gallo’s saner brother.

    Like it. That is usually how I look. Like the white sneakers aswell.

    And like Sofia, I got word from aftonbladet in sweden about this page.

    Like what you are doing.

    But someone should tell him… “pink is the new black”.

    Me likey! Reminds me of my fellow Portlanders. Which, in turn, reminds me: Sart, come on out here to Stumptown for some really inspired street. We’re definitely a breed unto ourselves. I thinks it’s all the rain, cofee and stimulants that have a hand in the decidedly “un-fashion” choices…

    i really like his look from the neck down. the hair scares me a little — helter skelter flashbacks.

    Lit said it very well.

    Why are so many people opposed to black?

    With some colours you cannot go wrong, as this man proves.

    “Why are so many people opposed to black?”

    i’m not opposed to black, i just find this look to not really have anything remarkable about it. (unlike the woman from yesterday with the fabulous yohji coat, which was also an almost-all-black look.)

    also, i get black fatigue after a certain point and want to just see a color, any color, or print, or variation.

    I would just like to say that for the most part these are really good comments.

    I’m sorry Sart, but I think you’re playing an emperor’s clothes gambit with us here: This shot is a trick question, and the answer is that there *is no style here*. Nothing about this shot proves hat he wasn’t sleeping in a dumpster overnight, with his feet up, keeping his tennies clean!!

    You have to be kidding!!

    The hair alone is enough to get him on my blog and the overall slim silhouette is perfect for him

    Also it is hard to find a quilted jacket ( like his- Prada) that is not too puffy, cut small enough and yet still keeps you warm – so there is another reason

    Okay, Sart, you’ve won me over, and the Prada jacket is the clincher. Maybe its an East Coast vs. West Coast thing, though… If I saw him like that in Los Angeles, some good assumptions would be that he had shoplifted the jacket, slept overnight in a cardboard box, and just got his Methadone on Skid Row. If I passed him on the street, I would just give him all my spare change to spare him the indignity of asking, and to avoid a probable incoherent schitzophrenic conversation. I’m not as heartless as this sounds, but street people need professional help, and I’m not that kind of professional.

    All this judgement for not being in synch with facial hair etiquette in some specific neighborhood?

    Sartorial expression is above all a manifestation on how people want to be perceived…

    But requires an interlocutor…maybe people are reluctant to learn other languages to perhaps widen horizons.

    The hairy dude is a multilingual individual in my humble opinion.

    except for the trainers this guy would fit right in in Portland. We’re not afraid of shaggy hair here. But how can anyone tell that his jacket is Prada? The photo is too dark for me to see much besides the lines of the outfit and his face. i like it. I second the request for Sartorialist to make a trip to Portland, OR. the Saks here sucks, but maybe you could do the windows as an excuse for the trip. Better yet, Mario’s should invite you out.

    I was never a big fan of white trainers until I lived in London, where they do it with great style. Every Stylist, photographer, model and so-call hipster (where did that term come from ick!!) dons them. His look is now and new.
