On the Street…….Modern Prep, Sodermalm, Stockholm

What he is wearing is basically Gap khakis, polo, and sneakers but the extra slim cut make it look so much better than what i can buy at Cherry Vail Mall.

    Well, what is one to say? As we say in Holland, ‘Met jou zou ik wel een beschuitje willen eten’. My God. One question for our host: when will we be able to buy your first book? And I want this man to be on the cover!

    When you look this good, it’s easy to make everything else work for you. I love the slim cut khakis on him. But it is not a very forgiving pair of pants. You need to have legs up to THERE to wear that.

    What is most fascinating for me about this photo is the white pants and shoes. Brilliantly matched and totally fresh looking.

    It also helps that he’s hot.

    I agree the fit is what makes the look. But even if the clothes didn’t fit so well, he’d still have that extraordinary body underpinning it all.

    The trousers appear to be of a ‘normal’ slim cut, not too snug at all through the hip and thigh. This chap has just got massive calves!

    Maarten; I totally agree this guy is friggin’ hot and as we also say in Dutch: naast hem zou ik wel eens wakker willen worden.. Those pants are amazing, a really fresh way to cope with the slim-fit-hype!

    i love this modern preppy look. this shows perfectly that you do not have to spend a ton of money to look stylish… a great haircut, cleanliness and good grooming and some attention to detail really goes a long way.
    even a chunky guy would look fantastic wearing this look.
    that’s why it has become a classic, non?

    Agreed that fit can make or break a piece of clothing, no matter its pedigree.

    Having said that, I think that in this case his trousers cross the line from “well fitted” to “too tight.”

    Love the mix of what appears to be navy and black on top, though.

    @lulamae… I dont think a chunky guy could pull this look off at all..I live in Williamsburg Brooklyn, where we have chunky guys working slim pants all over the place, and they look terrible… however the little slice of sunshine in this photo could be wearing a dayglo mumuu and still look good…

    I think skinny pants look bad on everyone (including this pretty-as-a-girl guy) because they make your legs look very short.

    This man would look good in anything, but I love the navy/black white/cream combos which most people wouldn’t attempt. There’s something modern but understated about it. Paired with the classically handsome and intelligent face, he’s remarkably striking.

    I wish my legs looked ‘very short’. Short legs are awesome!
    One trite fashion tip from ‘What Not to Wear’ cannot be applied to the the entire clothes-wearing population.

    The shows are fantastic!!they are a great example of how a man can were white sneakers and still look pulled together …Gotta get some just like those!!!
    SO, Are they Prada or Lacoste?

    GAP pants?.. dont think so …or at least not here in America…Wishful thinking though…

    i agree, it’s hard to get past the face to look at the clothes. but leaving the khakis aside, what about the jacket? i love the minimalist thing going on, but the stark pairing with the khakis make it even better.

    actually though, i still can’t get past the face :)

    probably not GAP but I see what you meant. Their slim pants are not very slim at all…I wish they would change up their fits to fit smaller people like H&M does.

    I’ve tried on pants this skinny and couldn’t get used to the bunching around my calves and knees. It looked untidy to me but probably normal to others.

    It’s interesting how we need to let go of the past to accept new shapes and forms.
