    Yep, he looks like Dylan, only…you know, better.

    this is wonderful.

    would look just as good on a female as well. little rolled up hems on skinny black pants look amazing paired with oxfords. i wore this look without socks in the fall, but with socks…they look just as great.

    i know i’m probably going to be one of many who thinks he looks like a young bob dylan, but i can’t post without it being said!

    Great photo, Scott! Lovely turtleneck sweater. Great colous here. This chap definitely has a ’60s look going on, and inadvertently or not he is clearly channeling the spirit of Ian McCulloch.

    I am not sure why his trousers are so high. I find it really disturbing and I may even lose some sleep over it. Men today rarely seem to get the break right. Pants are either too long and engulf the shoe, or they are way too short, as in Thom Browne. This young man’s trousers display a ‘negative break’! WTF?!

    instantly reminded me of me back in the early 80′s as a mod. very cool and the right attitude. how do i put this, i like the fact that he is not really conforming, not really rebelling, yet very cool. he seems to have found his comfortable niche.

    Whoah – more like Cate Blanchett’s Bob Dylan.

    It’s so hard to pull off that “I know I’m saucy” expression without it seeming contrived. I guess he just really knows he’s that saucy. The shiny oxfords and the mini-roll of the pant leg are especially charming.

    You don’t need to compare to the bland girl on the picture before this one to see this is special. I like everything about his look. He really stuffed his pocket though didn’t he? Well, in Sweden you’re almost seen as gay if you wear a bag as a man and it’s not obvious that it’s carrying your laptop.

    what you’ve captured here makes me want to go to stockholm.

    i love how he cuffs the pants to that length to reveal the socks slightly and so you can see all of his cute shoes. i’ve seen this length of cuffing of the pants done before, and it was not very flattering to the wearers. he looks great through. the building colors in the background go wonderful with him. the outfit seems very casual, but this guy just exudes a certain attitude… makes him quite the striking fellow. i especially love the expression on his face. how could someone not stop and take another look at this guy?

    I really adore his style! love the popping blended colors of the turtleneck… and especially the rolled-up cuffs to his pants to show off the socks. really confident, yet low-key, my favorite type of style. :)

    those swedes are just fantastic at rocking the youthful beatnik in cuffed trousers look. he does quirky with such confidence and cheekiness that you just KNOW he was born impeccably stylish.

    I like this artsy look even though it’s quite popular to dress a bit rougher in stockholm, guess being a brat is all to much work in the end.
    This is a basic outfit which would fit most people just as long as they know they’re hot. If the clothes are basic you need an attitude to make them wow others. But I think you should get out of stockholm and pop in to other big cities sometime. Sweden rocks, not just stockholm

    Quirky proportion. Excellent colour (especially hair). Charming details (rolled trouser leg).

    Very Bob Dylan, and very unisex.

    These Stockholm guys are quite trendy, no?

    i have to say i’ve come to despise a short break on tight pants (i don’t really care to see the color of your socks or the tops of your shoes, or exaggerate your height), but love it on slightly loose pants. swish!

    I don’t know if anyone has mentioned it yet, be he reminds me of someone. I think it is Bob Dylan

    He looks like the so-called “creep” in Truffaut’s film Domicile conjugal (Bed and Board). I mean that both in his hairstyle and manner of dress (esp. the shade of his turtleneck) and that he has his hands clasped behind his back. Weird.

    Love the rolled pants.. so ralph lauren.. the sweater eeee great look but, does not fit his body well.. I hate bunchy on top/slim on the bottom.. not proportional.

    Hm.. He reminds me of someone. Maybe it’s the famous Mata-mata, here in Norway. But I think it’s Dylan.

    Most of you say he looks like Dylan, but I agree with the person that said he looks like Cate Blanchett’s ‘Dylan’.

    IMO, he looks more like Tim Buckley, minus the ‘fro.

    oh i love this. the highwaters somehow make the entire look artsy, beatnik if you will. everybody’s metionned his resemblance to dylan, but i also see young mark bolan, mostly due to his lovely haircut.

    He looks like a bootlegged Bob Dylan Album. Old and tested and true, yet relevant wanted and unmistakably himself.
