    The safety-pin provides an interesting, diverging, take on the outfits formality…

    Perfect. I wonder what hair product he’s using?

    1st thought: is that a safety pin?
    2nd thought: bravo to whoever fit his suit.

    clean, sharp, architectural: the perfect menswear equation?

    i concur, i LOVE the kilt pin fastening his coat together! I have never seen it done like that before…very classic!

    Dan, he’s probably using a matte pomade like American Crew Fiber.

  31. ieatgelato

    Adore this outfit, it’s sleek, retro, and modern all at once. His side part is adorable, I also love the fit of his jacket and the pin (if that’s what it is). Detest the cig though.

  32. yankeegrl506

    March 5, 2009 at 9:30 pm

    VERY stylish. I love side-parted hair for some reason and i CANNOT rave enough about the jacket. The guy himself looks really young, and if I just saw his face, I would think he’s in high school, which i guess is a good thing (I’m in high school, too)…

  33. J U L I O

    March 5, 2009 at 11:13 pm

    Is that a safety pin he has? It looks great on that jacket. Love the hair also, maybe I should leave mine like that.

    The only thing that makes this interesting to me is how his jacket is fastened.

    i was about to say he looks swedish, so thanks Niklas for confirming! The pin makes the outfit interesting.

    Where did he find such a nice coat ? I’m jealous.

  45. bula

    March 6, 2009 at 5:52 am

    honestly now, the fact that he is 17 ruins the whole picture…this isn’t a suit for a school boy…


    March 6, 2009 at 7:04 am

    Great suit, great safety pin. But it is all a bit too neat and clean. Makes him look a bit like a schoolboy.

  47. LivingGolden

    March 6, 2009 at 8:23 am

    His coat is amazing, but the look is almost ruined by the safety pin. It reeks of trying too hard to be different.

    I can’t believe nobody commented on the pockets on the suit. They make the suit have that modern/retro edge. Love the pin although its not the first time he’s done this kilt pin on a suit.

    This is too contrived, too “home made”. Adding a safety pin doesn’t make the outfit any less trite, in my opinion. Uninteresting briefcase, too.

    Very sharp. I really like the contrast between his youthful face and the professional outfit, haricut and portfolio. And the safety pin injects some youth and fun into the outfit so that he doesn’t look either too severe for his age or like he’s wearing Daddy’s suit.

    In the props to Sart on the photo portion of the comment, I love how he’s standing in conversation with the girl, but he’s looking a little warily at the camera. Also great how her muted color palette compliments his muted color palette. And the overall gray tones of your outdoor shots today are great (although they make me shiver a little in sympathy with the cold).

    …and the pants are interesting too but the pin steals the spotlight!

    The safety pin shows that the suit jacket is too small.

    Good to see Gustav get another look in on the blog. He’s got a special talent in style, and it shows here (though the brief case is a bit ordinary). The jacket reminds me of vintage YSL.

    That’s no ordinary safety pin, by the way — it’s a Raf Simons brooch.

    I agree, he does look like every other Swede, but I appreciate it anyway. Oh to be back in Sverge. And as much as I love the hair, this would look great with a hat. I can spot a Swede a hundred yards away if he's wearing a hat.

    I don't know what the etiquette is on old posts… is there a moratorium on commenting? I was cruising the archives looking for something I wanted to revisit (so many of your images leave a long-lasting impression) and I don't know how I missed this. I grew up in the 90's so the pin says "grunge" to me… it's a little touch of punk, like the hair. Borderline. Love it. Hmmm… he'd be legal now. :)
