This is my most favorite look ever on young men – a pair of great fitting blue jeans, a shirt underneath a V-Neck pullover and a that kind of Barbour quilted jacket the guy is wearing. Just wow at him having such a classic, elegant and fitting style.
This guy looks great! I love the unexpected combo of the red checked shirt with the pale green sweater. And while I ordinarily think collars up look affected, it looks okay here. He looks squeaky clean, but not uptight.
Love this site and made it my home page as many here also attest. I’ve been to Stockholm a few times and have always been impressed by their sense of hip, albiet classy and seemingly tailored style. The Swedes to me seem able to translate any current global fashion trend into something their own, giving it a timeless quality. I think the tall and blond thing doesn’t hurt also. Hej dĂĄ!
love red and green together, especially contrasted with black. he did it very well, with the true red in the shirt and the mint green in the sweater, so it isn’t too christmas-y. also, great hair, short but still showing off those curls! overall, not too contrived, yet not to that sloppy point of nonchalance.
He is an extremely handsome young man wearing a fantastic outfit, so well put together.
But what is truly beautiful is how the triangular signs surrounding him echo the shape of his face and aspecs of his wardrobe, like his open collar and the deep-ish v of his v-nck sweater. This is a great photograph.
Is that a quilted jacket? I have serious problems accepting those jackets other than on stable workers, old ladies and maybe old men – but the men have to be british or italian to get away with it. To wear a quilted jacket in downtown stockholm is just a lame upperclass statement. And he seems to be just that type of guy. I can’t deny his good looks though, and I like the shirt. Also he pulls off the combination of colors well.
Hm, in stureplan/Ă¶stermalm, this is so ordinary that i’m getting tired in the eyes just by looking at the picture. It’s like that scene in the second matrix movie with all the Agent Smith clones, in stockholm you have 200 of this guy around you all the time and that’s pretty annoying after a while.
A lot of swedes has a great sense of fashion though, but you find most of them in SĂ¶dermalm/SoFo.
By the way, hope you had a great time in stockholm and you’re welcome back!
Hot pose, perfect fit, lovely colors, and of course, ditto on the gorgeous composition of the overall photo.
I sympathize with the “reverse” classism or whatever it is we’re hearing on this thread. I sometimes get a pain in my stomach when I see too many up town NYC pictures, b/c some of them seem to try and purchase style or brand themselves into style. I also don’t like to be reminded of class differences so visibly…
At the same time, great style is great style, regardless of class markings in the look or the absence thereof.
Hm, the style is timeless. However, you need to be quite relaxed in it, I believe, not to appear 50-ish. This boy looks a bit stiff to me. My guess is he would rather run around in jeans and t-shirt and thus, that is what he should do..
I love this picture. The way the trafic signs were caught on both sides of the boy. And the way he looks in to the camera, like it was taken so fast he didn’t even have time to put both hands fully in the pockets. I like his style.. Very nice; casual-street-elegance..
krakan said “Hm, in stureplan/Ă¶stermalm, this is so ordinary that i’m getting tired in the eyes just by looking at the picture.” I agree. in sthlm there is a refined classwar going on :)- have you seen the movie “cry-baby”? itÂ´s sort of the rascals against the brats. you just have to know that about sthlm, itÂ´s not a snob opinion, its just how it is. :) the recent years it has been melted together a bit, though.
