    Oooh, I love the white shirt/tan trousers. The stark contrast is great.

    Avid reader, first-time poster.

    That first subject is, in my humble opinion, the finest specimen man these eyes have ever seen. I usually find the combination of black and brown to be boring and drab, but with his cheekbones, complexion, and the lustrous colour of his hair, he makes it work.

    Keep up the wonderful photography! You give me something to look forward to each day.

    Yeah,these guys look different.The top one looks more native,the lower one could be British.The colors of the trees and grass look Scandinavian.

    The young man in the white shirt has commanding presence and more than a passing resemblance to the late Ingmar Bergman.
    I wish more young people would jettison the dark palette in summer.

    swedish men look so much healthier than NYC men… once you get out of the city you realize that we all have a grey- greenish pallor.
    scandinavian men are so …… wow.

    the plaid shorts (top) are my fave shorts for a guy–ever– they really look good and the fit him.

    Top figure nicely androgynous.

    The universality of a given fashion is truly something to ponder….Does anyone in a post-industrialized land not look like everyone else therefrom? Down to the sneakers?

    Hmm, they look too richie-rich perfect for my taste. I prefer a little muss and fuss. (Not to mention a bit of a smile in the eyes!)

    I love the lower picture.
    I kind of wish he would starch up the entire look to go with the geekchic fully buttoned shirt. tuck it in, neater hair etc etc
    but really whatever, he looks fantastic.

    The second boy is very cute. I love the way he cuffs both his pants and his shirt sleeves. But I can’t help but feel worried about him- are those two black eyes? And he looks quite uncomfortable.

    Yep, in Sweden we have well-dressed men!

    Lovely jubbly ;-) Especially the first one. Slender and fab. I am not usually a big fan of mid calf shorts on men but with that boy it works a treat. I love his hair too – very River Phoenix

    When you’re tall and handsome it’s hard not to look good, isn’t it?

    Those are perfect guy shorts.

    A rare good use of bright white tennis shoes.

    That vest shape + shirt sleeve length in the second picture isn’t very flattering.

    Talk about low-waisted vs. (presumably) “true” waisted. I just can’t imagine typical American men wearing Keds-style shoes, can you? I’d kinda like to see how his outfit looks standing up.

    Does anyone know if I can “mod” my beat-up chucks like the man in the first picture for that no-shoelaces look? How is that done? Is the tongue just sewn to the shoe, or do you have to buy them that way?

    yeah… I guess. For one thing, tan pants and a white shirt is not a stark contrast. Second the shoes on that guy are just a shame. And the guy in the black top and shorts? C’mon! Just because it’s Swedish doesn’t make it right. Maybe it’s because I’m from the San Francisco Bay Area where we have real style. Now, I won’t say that the gentlemen are not handsome, but is this a model search or a style blog?

    The first guy looks delicious! I love the sunnies and his very modelesque stance.

    WHY hasn’t anyone pointed out # 2′s rad watch it perfectly suits his expression. The dirty keds are a sweet juxtaposition too

    White shoes? I’d guess Urban Outfitters in Stockholm. The shoes have hit Sweden in full and are a common sight. Cheap, stylish but very uncomfortable.

    mhm! their looks are totally ok but they look like thousands of young men here in stockholm. what is missing is a positive attitude coming trough the picture or a glimmer in the eyes…just two pretty and well dressed guys. well, not so special, isn’t it?

    First pic: Perfect example of man in shorts during summer. It’s sexy casual.

    Second pic: He looks like a hospital orderly.

    I see absolutely nothing out of the ordinary with guy # 1, it’s basically the way every guy here in Sweden dresses. And I hate the hair.

    The white shoes are plimsoles made by a company called Dek. Depending on where you buy them from they can be extremely cheap to overpriced. The trend is getting pretty tired now and you can hardly move without seeing them on the street. They are great with any outfit, and anybody can wear them, even American men.

    Those plimsolls may be yesterday’s news in Europe, but I sure hope they make their way over here to the US (our fashion always seems to be 1 year behind Europe, and here in Seattle, we’re 2 years behind everyone else! I’m just sick and tired of guys wearing clunky thick soled cross trainers, chunky skate shoes, and ‘moon boot’ basketball sneakers. Those plimsolls are light simple and sophisticated. The only problem is that they look like womens’s Keds, and the average American man is way too sexually insecure to wear anything that he feels may be construed as remotely ‘feminine’. And the market for the few American men with any sense of style may be too small the be profitable

    Bonita Friedland of Lake Forest, Illinois has always loved Swedish men, especially those with some Laplander blood. Bonita Friedland is of mixed race, but predominantly Italian. Those dark, sultry women usually love blondes. This Swede would get Bonita Friedland’s blood boiling, not to mention her nether regions!
