let’s face it Sart: you are suffering from a bad case of Stockholm syndrome. anything even mildly off-kilter you find out there looks like solid gold fashion genius to you. the brokeback mountain guys. the hippie girl. the whatever sequin weirdo. okay, we get the point, Sweden is quirky, but please change destination soon. maybe Mozambique? thank you, have a great time.
Cute and effortlessly cool. It’s interesting that although he’s wearing a glittery sweater, it doesn’t stand out as being outrageous on him. All that really stands out is his cool, slouchy attitude and attire.
ciafrommilan, take your pants off! That kid is cute! If my daughter wanted to date him, I’d say yep… love his quirky style. Not for me nowadays, but I’ve got at least 20 years on him… but once wore clothing which emphasized odd scales and textures too.
This look could easily be too much. And I know some people do in fact think it’s too much. But the subtlety of the color palette really makes this look for me. From the color of his hair to the silver cardy to the white vest atop black pants & accessories, it’s goes ‘out there’ but never oversteps the bounds of good taste. The shape isn’t for everyone, but he pulls it off because you can tell he’s having fun.
Looks like a “gay Muppet,” Edofnyc? Putting aside that this might be a redundant characterization–what’s wrong-er with looking that way than looking like a straight Muppet? (Actually, Moppets, like angels, have no sex…)
And Anon 10:36, the “brokeback mountain guys”? Your code phrase for gay guys dressing Western: what’s the problem with that?
I love it. What a smile it put on my face. It takes me back to my youth in the East Village circa 1980 when I would wear black mini-dresses with a back down to THERE and men’s black combat boots. Rock on. And the background is just killer. What an eye you have!
i don’t think this works very well. i don’t mind the idea of a sequined cardigan…but i think it’s the pattern that makes it look cheap….compared to say the Burberry sequined knits that were out a season or two ago. or maybe a neater tshirt would have done the job..?
he looks great … the cardigan makes the outfit – it’s pretty glam with the contrast of the plain dingy t-shirt … pretty effortless. the cardigan is def vintage but harks back to what christopher bailey showed at burberry a few seasons back – love it.
