Yes, this does have a period feeling–the shirt, the slightly floppy pants.
But really, it’s the hair, I think, that evokes, or reinforces the sense of styles past. I agree with another poster who was in awe of the Scandinavian gene-pool. These countries are the Brazil of the North. (Or Brazil is…etc.)
There are few men I find truly attractive. This blond man with his blond clothes and frank facial expression & pose leaves me stunned. Your pictures, Sart, belong to the tradition of great portraiture.
ok, i’m baffled as to why this man is considered sartorial. is your blog about sartorial discoveries or about beautiful faces? there are many many pretty faces (and this man is one) but there are very few men with a great tailored fashion sense. question: do you equate good, natural born looks, with being sartorial?
M-, I love the pale colors (especially in that shirt!), the sleek lines on the pants, the typically casual white tennies looking crisp and not sloppy, the exposed ankles, the unusual hair, the rocks and the flora… and we’ve seen many, many New Yorkers with similarly casual or not-so-innovative looks showcased too who do something simple or standard very right and still manage to be inspirational. The crazy, eye-catching looks that revolve about skirts made of button-downs or an unusual accessory are neat, but there is also value to be taken from the pictures of clothing being worn well, I think.
sart i’m flattered you actually reacted to my comment. but, i do feel i raised a valid question. many times on your sight i see beautiful people, and as an aesthete, i love it, however, when i see the word sartorial as your title, beautiful faces does not come to mind. what i interpreted was that you were going to focus on the expression of fashion through good tailoring and good personal style. which was refreshing, because fashion magazines, for the most part, seem to focus more on physical beauty, which again i love, over actual style and tailoring. so i am disappointed when you do the same. believe me, i have an open mind. i am inspired by attitudes, nature, technology, a woman’s shoe, to express my own personal style. but now that you have advised that you are also about inspiration, i will try and see what is it about this man that inspires you (because what i see as a possible inspiration is to either look like him or have him and there is nothing sartorial about that). i look forward to seeing more of your finds. thank you!
this is NOT carl m sundevall , as someone commented before (and btw,carl did NOT found the mag rodeo either),this is a swedish journalist, BjÃ¶rn af Kleen.He looks very much like a young August Strindberg. I want more pics from Stockholm, are the posted all you took mr Sart or are you holding back on a bunch?
