I feel like he's from a movie beacause he seems so richly in character and beautiful. Also, I like your style of "reporting" in that you post an obviously interesting picture, with no objective comment and let the readers draw conclusions. It puts your work in the spotlight.
What a gorgeous man! Great shot, and gotta love a man who wears espadrilles. Wonder what size shoe he wears because he looks like he has big feet (as do I)and most espadrilles run to the smaller sizes. I'll even overlook the enormous hole in the jeans knee.
Cheekbones like this can get away with almost anything! That said, the whole look is surprisingly chic, from the nice side part in his hair to the slightly-worn espadrilles. And who doesn't love an old-skool bike?
A fantastic look, love everything about it, especially the shoes.
About those shoes… I think they are Tom's and every time you buy a pair of shoes he donates a pair for free to a child in need. In developing countries walking is the main mode of transportation and most kids go barefoot. They risk injury, disease, are not allowed in school barfoot, and perhaps any future livelihood they may have without shoes.
Please if you want this look help a child, buy your shoes at Tom's. FYI, I have no affiliation with Tom's whatsoever, nor have I ever. I am just charitable.
Hmm, perhaps more than any other picture recently on this blog, this guy is just going on his good looks. The clothes are nothing special (I like ripped jeans but that hole-in-knee is too much even for me), it's just the "I"m young and ridiculously hot" thing that catches you.
I have those shoes the same ones, I used to wear it with a very short whyte egg, trousers of RL, and a camel militar T-shirt of RL, In spain those shoes are used for a long time for old people, I think is the same in all the mediterranean. Good photo
This handsome young man is the right age to wear artfully ripped jeans. Several years ago I bought a (less revealing) pair on sale, wore them once, and realized that I looked pathetic rather tan hip in such youthful garb. I then donated them to charity, hoping that Goodwill Industries had some fashion-forward customers!
His shoes are alpargatas, as a couple of people have previously mentioned. The founder of Toms got his "idea" for the shoes from visiting Argentina and deciding to market them. They are traditional Argentine shoes (worn by gauchos) and quite inexpensive. They are also very popular in Argentina (for both males and females). I personally love them, but the ones with a jute sole don't hold up too well. There are also alpargatas with rubber soles that last longer…Just wanted to put in my two cents :)
These shoes originate from centuries ago, from the country folks in the Pyrenees which separate Spain from France, thus their presence in the mediteranean area and South Am. (many Basques emigrated to Argentina for ex. as sheephearders).
Oh my god, he is hot — and the photo itself is gorgeous! Does anyone else get a slight James-Dean-ish vibe from this image? (Other commenters are right, though; this guy could wear a paper bag and still be stunning…)
It's something I noticed travelling to Milan and Reggio Emilia : guys here can get along with outrageously detailed and sophisticated looks, prepped to the most effeminate detail (like a diamond in the ear) without being ridiculous one second. To me they are the paragon of style , over-sophisticated to the point they reach a natural. I'm so jealous!
oh hot damn. introduce me? :) we even have matching espadrilles!
We would be perfect together, I can assure you.
Your blog is magnificent, awe inspiring, and I would love to travel around the world like you to meet great people! (although I'd make sure try to offset my carbon emissions because I'd feel a burden on my soul if I didn't).
