On the Street….Stylized Prep School, NYC


I think the over sized collar and Dad’s size tie has quite a charming effect here.

    blegh, i think the jacket looks ill-fitting and the sleeves make his elbows look disjointed. no particularly striking sense of style or directionality.

    charming indeed! this photo could not be more perfect: the collar, the tie, the jeans, the phone, the haircut, the sticking-out ears. very boyish and endearing.

    Young and fun.
    (But his skeletal hands and wrists are a bit scary…)

    I love his outfit! It's more casual than the normal prep school look . . .

    sometimes it's so easy to put on a tee and jeans. thinking differently about the way we layer, adding subtle touches to an outfit, tweaking the norm is where the real character shines through.

    an OK look, but this boy is far too skinny to have the attention be anywhere but his seemingly disjointed wrists!

    I agree that it's a great look, however I also think it's hard for a grown man to pull it off.

    The clothes are cool, but it's really all about the cheekbones.

    I'd kill for those cheekbones.

    A fragile youth indeed. His lean body let's the attire dominate his presence, but that deep gaze is quick to command respect.

    and the fact that he's super skinny.

    Ha ha!

    Did I want to look like anyone older than me when I was his age?

    No way.

    Youth is about creating your own ideas, making your own mistakes.

    I don't like this look and he wouldn't care.

    Just as it should be.

    The Norman Rockwell post was profound. He looks like he was transplanted from another era–what a lovely picture–and no he's not too skinny–he's still growing up

    Its an OK outfit but I think it would have been much improved had he gone less for the girly look and more of an androgynous one.

    not overdressed either, good one with the sweater instead of a blazer

    he is a fashion student at FIT who earned an honorable mention at their fusion fashion show with Parsons. He seems to be stuck on the harlequin look.

    i don't know why this is so special.
    just cheap looking tie and sweater.
    is it because this guy is super skinny?

  61. This boy is too thin, but he still has a good look.
