    Again Espadrilles!!
    They rule, that’s for sure. Nice combo, grey scarf and sweater.

    Hey there, if still in Stockholm, try the shop “Haberdashery”, Herkulesgatan 24. One of my favorite when I’m in Sweden.

    I love this. It’s relaxed, yet elegant. It’s a shame about the bit of green belt spoiling the marine colour palette.

    Very feminine features. I like his nose.

    But also, you don’t see many men in the states willing to sport blue like that.

    • style of old

      Minus the scarf and the espadrilles this is a very East Coast outfit. I am from the East Coast and I live in Europe and while he is nice to look at his styling is not exceptional.

    I like the espadrilles on this look, it subtly tells you he is not just one of the khaki shorts and sweater types. I like the scarf also but they just do not work in South Florida! Jorge from W Palm Beach

    Great photo– it’s perfect with the red horizontal line of the bus in the background. I like the summer scarf trend.

    I really would love to know what he looks like with the glasses on that he is carrying. I aslo love the espadrilles – I think they are a great look on guys who can pull it off. I love how this look is mixing a few seasons… effortlessly.

    This is a gorgeous androgynous look. Of course, in the United States you could get arrested for dressing like this. Or beat up. But in Stockholm, it apparently flies quite well. Superb!

    The sweater is also Ralph Lauren – and you can put that in your pipe..Or the bank…

    Espadrilles and the shorts are an excellent combination. The crew plus the scarf complement it well given the Nordic climate. Quite well assembled.

    I can’t figure out what makes this photo androgynous…someone else mentioned facial features, which might be it…or hair. Either way, I like the relaxed expression on his face coupled with the bus passing by.

    That lovely soft grey compliments his hair and skin tone beautifully. the shorts and espadrilles are cool. I think the red bus is Sart doing his genius thing with moments… I haven’t been to Stockholm but i have been to St Petersberg which must be on a similar latitude and i really noticed the natural light makes certain colours ‘sing’, greys, blues, mint green and colours we might regard as ‘cold’ in a different setting. Like in Miami the warm light does great things to cobalt blues and bright pink. I don’t know if it makes Sart take different pictures than he did in say, Florence?

    Love the bikes, too. Scandinavians do better with two-wheeled transport than their American counterparts. That scarf will look even better dancing in the wind as it’s owner pedals lazily down the vag . . .

    The only thing that would make this better is if he were on a beach. What a classic!

    I think it’s very ordinary, you see a majority of people looking like him in most Swedish cities. The belt does not match the Espadrilles and apart from that the whole outfit screams ORDINARY(!). The gray match is something a 10 year old could put up. Sorry mister not a great one

    looks like he was maybe sporting some ray-bans or something because he has a rayban case in his left hand, possibly took them off for the pic i wonder why?

    Until I clicked on it to see the full size picture I could have sworn that was a girl in a sweater and blue skirt. I like how the different shades of blue all work together. Not fond of the green belt with the red Polo logo spoiling the look.

    To the Storialist: Well, I think it’s simple. What makes the picture androgynous is the look of the guy, his face, his legs (rather feminine) Nothing more. There is actually nothing androgynous about his clothes. Such garment, worn by masculine guy, would look completely manly. His style is great though – very relaxed and casual;

    The best shorts on a man photo I have ever seen. He wears them, not the other way around!

    I think it was great to see his eyes but the ray bans would’ve looked pretty fantastic too!

    I’m shocked to read from a few Americans that they reckon you’d get into trouble for wearing such an outfit. Surely not in the large cities? It doesn’t seem controversial to me.

    I had a weird moment with this pic, I thought it was of an ordinary if confident bourgeois middleaged woman, maybe French, possibly on holiday, and when I enlarged the pic a handsome young man emerged!

    I believe those glasses are from Persol, at least hopefully… The case pretty much remainds of that I have at home.

    Upon closer inspection I realized this was a young man and not a young woman… I love that this look can be both male and female and yet work! Great inspiration for those of us who like a little androgyny from time to time!

    Notice the creases in his shorts.. he’s been rolling them up! a friend of mine said the other day, “are you rolling your shorts because of the sartorialist?” i said, “yes, partly..” :)

    some of you seem to forget that most of the viewers of this blog don’t live in Stockholm. What looks normal to you is different to them.

    We don’t have 14 year olds that dress like this in the US

    very typical look from spanish beaches (change sweater 4 a shirt).
    esparteñas in spanish. My grandfather had a factory in spain. He taught me how to do them (handmade). I still make myself a couple of them in summer.

    No offence, but without trying to be arrogant I can only once again realize how ahead Sweden is compared to a lot of other regions regarding fashion when reading these comments, considering how not very sartorialistic this outfit is if you ask the majority of fashion interested people here.

    above the knee shorts and espadrilles: can’t go wrong, and this young man knows it. A pleasing bagginess, too: hard to pull off!

    I just love navy blue espadrilles with white stitching, remind me of my father in the South West of France when I was a kid. He is just adorable.
