OK, let me admit right off the bat that I am totally biased because I love your model. Combat boots are definitely on my shopping list this fall- waiting for the Gap/Pierre Hardy ones to come out. The proportions are stunning; his frame can wear anything and look hot, I don’t know how else to explain a combination of black jeans, no belt (mon dieu!), rolled sleeves in a jacket that is too short, and it is NOT a cropped jacket, and that is probably why the sleeves are rolled in the first place…
Love it, love it, love it. Favorite pieces? the boots and the bag. Jorge from W Palm Beach
Aah, the very young can get away with anything! He’s obviously not got a bean – there’s a reason those sleeves are rolled up – but who cares: a photographer might spot him and change his life (or at least make his day!).
This photo made me smile, as did the one above it. It’s perhaps as much costume as fashion, with a hint of playing dress up thrown in due to his very young look. I like the boots- I like it all; mainly for its’ sense of fun and a touch of whimsy. Very nice.
In reply to yariten: I have no idea wheter this guy is rich or poor, but his sleeves are not rolled up because he couldn’t afford a jacket in his size, but because it is very trendy in Stockholm right now. Worn out 50:s, chinos, jackets, shirts. We roll them all up to get that effortless look.
The colors are great. The shirt and the jacket work together. The only thing that I would change is the length of the collar on his shirt. I’d go with a shorter collar to better fit with the thin necktie.
Congratulations Sartorialist for starting to get out of the usual US-UK-France-Italy circuits!
There is so much to see and so many interesting people dressing up all over the world. People and styles in places like Antwerp, Copenhaguen, Istanbul, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, Barcelona -just to mention a few- are not to be missed.
Hope you continue with this most welcomed international expansion. I was missing that in your site!
Swedes have fantastic, seemingly innate fashion know-how and always manage to look effortlessly cool. This bloke is no exception, of course. Love the colours. He looks chic enough to go to the office, but the giant safety pin and cuffed sleeves add a nice touch of whimsy to an otherwise serious look.
Great look over all. I never seem to get the courage to wear my sleeves rolled up like that. And isn’t that Gustav BrostrĂ¶m from http://modeman.feber.se/ ? He does have a great sense of style most of the time.
No better – and no worse – than all the other vaguely Lanvin-filtered-by-Acne-Jeans outfits that so many young men on SĂ¶dermalm seem to favor at the moment. It’s a clone phenomenon, really. Thus not very inspiring, to my eyes.
The male version of Anna Wintor ordernary boys in Sweeden just put on clothes and look great we dont spend hours trying to get it this perfect as Gus has obviously spent hours contemplating the pin and bag more FV than style,at least Sart you are making it North.
i think this outfit is perfect. no, it does not need any punches of color. the layering of two different blues, the precise sharpness of his collar, the black tie *tucked* into his jeans, the dashing black bag, the subtle but obvious pin, and of course, his devastatingly bold selection of footwear.
