On the Street…….Swede Fonzie, Sodermalm, Stockholm

With that 50′s hair, short jacket, white tee, and jeans this young man reminds me of a Swede Fonzie

    Fonzie was never as stylish or as beautiful. Cool and sophisticated. And great grooming – almost like a model in a photo shoot.

    OK, fellow posters, this is about the clothes…the clothes…the clothes…

    Hmmm–a lot of good that did.

    Anyway, I love the sweater over the T; the whole ensemble actually. Now if someone could just tell me how I might jump into the Swedish gene pool for, like, forever….

    If only I could take that look and transplant in on a few guys here in Canada. I totally love the rockabilly appeal.

    That is just so stylish! Sends shivers down my spine. The clean white t-shirt and the jacket with it’s collar up like that. And the hair. Just simply great!

    Hmm.. good use of shoulder pads. I’d still avoid this him/her person on the street thought, there’s something dark about this guy/girl.

    That’s a great ensemble. I don’t know why but my eye is drawn to the grey – beautiful, clean and simple. Very sculpted overall.

    His hair is like a male’s answer to Amy Winehouse hair……

    That’s it! 50′s hair should be de rigeur for all the hipsters from now on.

    Or is he more the Marlon Brando type, ie Rebel without a cause?
    For me the cardigan is what makes the look. A bit unexpected…

    love the cardi over tank, don’t like the big shoulders on the jacket or the dreary color pallete. but haven’t we all seen a black jacket with grey and white and jeans a million times before, and better? i know i have.

    How the hell can people comment about this guy being a female? That is the most ridiculous thing i’ve ever heard – HE is clearly a GUY! It always surprises me that when people can’t find fault with the outfit they have to criticise the persons looks – probably due to jealousy & the fact that HE’S an extremely attractive guy. The overall look is very simple, very european & his hair totally brings it all together & makes it interesting.

    Also, I understand that this is an American website but it is heavily read by Europeans & obviously fetaures many Europeans … The word ‘hipster’ doesn’t exist in Europe – why do we have to categorize a person? why can’t someone just dress how they like without being tagged? especially with such a stupid word … a word with such little meaning …

    Without the scoop neck t-shirt, he would look a lot more manly. It gives him a long narrow neck.

    If Marie Fredriksson were ever to marry Morten Harket back in the 80′s I bet that’s what their child would look like. No guessing on the gender, though… Not my definition of cool, to be honest.

    There’s something about him that brings to mind Stepford wives, or husbands I guess… Regardless, beautiful!

    Actually, he looks more like a James Dean because of the skin tone. And totally cool.

    This is stunning. The sharp, elevated shoulders make a strong V shape with the deep neckline of the cardigan and frame his effeminate face. I love the sweater- particularly because it is such a thin knit, and because it is tight over the bulge (or lack thereof) of his abdomen. That, paired with his piercing gaze, is quite sexy. Also, the contrast of his very masculine jacket and edgy hair with his delicate features creates a sort of intrigue about him. On a more minor note, the t-shirt is crisp and white and has the perfect neckline. He is a wonder.

    Beautiful photo Sart. As another mentioned, it is the cardigan that really makes the fashion and the composition. The softness of the grey and the fabric is the prefect twist against the hard shine of everything else.

    I hope not to sound too awful but I like men who wear their clothes and have enough character to make the clothes look a natural part of them. When someone gives me an impression of a premeditated hanger, it is totally unstylish and unsexy in my opinion.

    SO typical Swedish. All the Swedish (well actually Scandinavian in general)guys at my school(internationalschoolsomewhereineurope) dress like that. Everything tight and trying to wear they hair somehow unique/different/special.
    But yeah i like this look, it reminds me of Grease.

    I love seeing the same outfit on someone else half way around the world. Great Sats think alike I guess? I personally have an outfit exactly like this one. However, I opted for a white vneck graphic tee under my grey cardigan, topped it off with the same jacket (H&M Fall 05). Plenty of people have complimented my sense of style, often assuming I am from England?? I have never been to England or Europe for that matter, so I am puzzled as to why they assume that of me. I live in Ottawa, ON Canada. I agree with Anon 5:33, North Americans often try to pigeon hole a specific look with a name or a place of origin. Yes, I speak with an accent (because I speak 4 languages) and I also have an androgynous face/hair…but I dont think this is why they try to lable me. I guess being “branded” here in North America literally means LABELING others??
