    I have been known to wear some men’s pieces (I’m a woman), so I guess it’s ok for him to wear women’s items (mittins and shoes.)

    oh, he’s adorable.
    i love how the sneakers completely contrast the rest of the outfit.

    I am sure the pompons on the mittens serve a purpose, right? I would have let either the mittens or the sneakers make a color statement, but maybe not both at the same time. I like the outfit overall! Jorge from W Palm Beach

    what i like best are the sneakers! i always feel like i cant wear sneakers with skinny jeans, but this is great.
    the rest of the look doesnt really do it for me though.

    Great find. The vintage new balance sneakers and the pom poms on the mittens show a confidence not commonly seen! I love kids like this…makes me feel positive about the future.

    Not all that fresh – good individual pieces (gloves/scarf/trainers) – not sure they all work together (colour-wise?) though…

    The pea coat is also H&M, maybe two years ago. I have it and I always get comments on it.

    The gloves vs. shoes creates a battle of warm vs. cold palette. I prefer the warm (gloves win out).

    They really know how to knit in Stockholm! I’m not sure if that’s a scarf or some exemplary sweater folding and wrapping…

  41. Michael

    I think it has to do with his eyes which is simultaneously innocent and sad the way a boy would be sad. Those eyes reflect the awkwardly matched purple shoes, red mittens, and the unexpected zipper on his coat. Without those eyes this outfit would not work.

    what a lovely boy. Those mittens are amazing. He looks like a character out of an early 20th century children’s story. I don’t know about the shoes though. I love the purple, but not so much the style.

    I want to build a snowman with him.

    Isn't anybody bothered by the bulky items in his front pockets? I don't mind guys wearing skinny jeans but please put your cell phone, wallet, keys, &c. in some other pockets besides the front ones. It totally messes with the clean lines of this outfit (and it wears holes in the front pockets). I like the look overall—great colors, great pieces, nicely mixed but am totally distracted by the front pockets.

    Are you sure this was Sotckholm and not the North Pole? Maybe Santa let him have an after Christmas vacation.

    I’m sorry, that does not work for me. Tight Trousers with big lilac sport shoes? I never like that.
    But I agree, he is cute.

    You can see how cold it must be if you look closely, because his hands are made into fists inside his mittens.

    It’s actually not considered that odd for men to wear mittens in the northern countries. I live in Finland and often both men and women wear mittens. And the pompoms on them are just a cute detail don’t you think? I love this look, it’s so kind of rough, very Swedish…

    He needs a bag. I see things in his pockets.

    Those mittens look hand knit and I bet they are “thrummed” which means you knit bits of wool into them to give them a fluffy lining inside, would explain their size. Cute!

    Gee, he looks awesome!
    Those shoes and those mittens are rather fantastic. I love wearing winter hats like he is too, pushed back and bangs in the front. And his scarf! Brilliant. Love the whole ensemble, and the zipper on his coat is a great finishing touch.
    He definitely looks like a cool cat, I'd love to meet him.
