    The plaid coat–definitely a thing this winter. And a nice example of it, male version.

    Big volume on top works surprisingly well with the skinny, rolled up pants (another trend).

    Also love the Veronca Lake hair. (OK, is this allusion lost on everyone out there, or?)

    These photographs taken in Stockholm are awe-inspiring. This young man is awe-inspiring!

    Katherine Zoepf (The New York Times) on Stockholm Style:
    COOL. Stockholm is cool. During a long weekend that my boyfriend, Dan, and I spent there, I found myself chirping like a 13-year-old over whimsical hotel light fixtures and exquisite potato mashers, river buoys shaped like human hands, folding accordion-pleated ice cream dishes, and a functioning cocktail bar sculptured entirely from ice. So cool.

    I like the collar, coat, bag, and jeans combo – but the hair and his shoes, I’m not sure. His shoes remind me too much of Goofy to take them seriously (esp with the high pants roll). But I really like the darker plaid coat, and that it has a hood!

    It must be said – in an individual Herculean effort to get the madness to cease – that outerwear with heavy/bulky necklines should be burned to ashes. That includes chunky scarves.

    It makes the head look small and shrunken. Very “Beetlejuice,” you know? It’s creepy and unsexified.

    Yes, that’s a word.

    Now put on a proper jacket with good lines that’ll keep you warm without looking like someone put a hex on you.

    oh how i adore the over-sized jacket. especially when it sports a subtle print. i also like the collar of his shirt peeking out the top. i didn’t really expect it..

    LOVE his whole look. the slim cropped jeans, the haircut, very retro-mod.

    i love the jacket, but think the whole outfit would be more cohesive if it, like the rest of him, was more streamlined and sleek.

    New England prep school, emo, East Village, and punk all in one young man who has mischief on his mind.

    His expression is more telling than his attire.

    Recntly I have seen so many kids in Stockholm wearing Doc Martens. It is a nice ode to the days of the original working class(and non-racist) skin heads (who wore braces, Levis, and Ben Sherman collarded shirts).

    I must respect his obvious love of the classics–Doc Martens, punkish black jeans, collared shirt, duffel coat, New Wave haircut. He knows the value of reliable, time-tested styles. These things look fresh and interesting on him. Classics need not be dull.

    And his gaze is very sassy!

    Love the outfit, the volumes, the styling. But the hair is so last year – enough with them. I think he would look infinitely better with a shorter cut.

    no offense, but looks very typical emo/indie fashion nonsense to me, though by far not the most horrible of example. nothing ‘unique’ in this look, 14 indie kids out of a dozen seem to look like that.

    fashionable, perhaps. any suss, no.

    While hair like that looks great in photos, I find it very annoying in real life. People with that sort of hair (myself included since I’m in between cuts) tend to push it around a lot. It’s a visual noise that bothers me as much as long-haired curls constantly twirling a lock in their fingers.

    Not a look I would feel comfortable wearing but I think this guy can pull it off. (wear whatever you want, as long as you can pull it off! lol)

    The hair looks great on him, today, but would get tiring pretty quickly. Still, though, sexy.

    Cold weather dressing is a challenge. Protecting oneself from the elements without being completely lost in a bunch of fabric. He manages to be practical while revealing enough of himself to be both stylish and alluring. Sexy.

    The pants suggest a great pair of legs. Great calves are hot. The white shirt adds weight to the top and helps him to emerge from the coat rather than being swallowed by it.

    No one has pointed out that his coat is actually a girls coat – the buttons are the wrong side for a boy. Not that it matters, it looks amazing. But still, buttons on the wrong side would confuse me…
