Really like the use of jewelry.
I never thought I'd see the devil lock go classy

November 3, 2009 at 1:43 pm
I love his chains!!!!!! super cool.
November 3, 2009 at 1:46 pm
kind of reminds me of Leo DiCaprio. I could see this on an older gentleman or lady. Pretty timeless and age appropriate (at any age) in most settings.
November 3, 2009 at 1:49 pm
The jewelry and hair are totally rad.
the nickel fit
November 3, 2009 at 1:52 pm
i'm a fan of multiple necklaces, but i think they look best when they're of similar length and inter-weaved.
shrunken blazer, 3 ring set. kid knows what he's doing.
love him! but he is like 14! unbelieveble
November 3, 2009 at 1:55 pm
He is cute! Love love his look and his jewellery
November 3, 2009 at 1:56 pm
a nicely fitting jacket, contemporary look
November 3, 2009 at 1:57 pm
Awesome hamsa necklace!

Adore the black T shirt and chains – very youthful.
November 3, 2009 at 2:09 pm
Don't get me wrong, I love it. But what is it?
(Regardless of her/his sexe, he/she is hot as hell!)
he is so adorable. like a french chase crawford (who i sat in the same aisle with going home this past summer, yes he's a dallas guy too!)

No so sure about the jewellery…

Beau, le ptit jeune!
Wow, that is such a mature look for someone his age. I LOVE his hair, too!
the embodiment of confused youth, integrating icons in fashion while ignoring their inherent contradiction: cross, gun, hindu hand.
sometimes the abstraction of symbolic meaning towards non-meaning in fashion can become offensive.
November 3, 2009 at 2:15 pm
I adore this!
November 3, 2009 at 2:16 pm
Is he wearing designer clothes?
November 3, 2009 at 2:24 pm
a really beautiful young londinian. dont know why, bu he reminds me of someone…..di caprio?…i dont know
November 3, 2009 at 2:27 pm
November 3, 2009 at 2:28 pm
he looks gr8!!
November 3, 2009 at 2:32 pm
fantastic combination of cross, weapon and fatimas hand^^ i will copy this!
November 3, 2009 at 2:38 pm
oh so sweetly, achingly young…
November 3, 2009 at 2:39 pm
Yeah, I thought that was a pistol in the middle too.
And I also thought he was a girl, so kudos to the neo-uni-sex look he's put together.

Such a cool and classy style.so young and so stylish. Great job.He's got an amazing face too.

November 3, 2009 at 2:54 pm
So much style, from the hair to the small-shouldered blazer to the scattered rings. Utterly charming. And a great shot, thanks to you, Sartorialist…
November 3, 2009 at 2:55 pm
What a dapper young man.
November 3, 2009 at 3:10 pm
November 3, 2009 at 3:11 pm
Such an adorable guy :) I totally love his style.
November 3, 2009 at 3:13 pm
Look at all that young stuff! Love the confident expression most of all.
November 3, 2009 at 3:24 pm
He's a well polished young man~he looks disciplined and probably takes pride in his well being and education…thats my first impression and I'm sticking to it;)
November 3, 2009 at 3:26 pm
I love the lowest necklace. On my own search for one. London is the only place for style
Lost in my big closet
I love the blazer. How style!!
The Man Who Knew Too Much
November 3, 2009 at 3:27 pm
Hah! Love this young fella's style.
November 3, 2009 at 3:34 pm
He nailed this look. I love the necklaces. The blazer and pants fit perfectly. It shows what great dressing is really about: fit and detail.
November 3, 2009 at 3:47 pm
I like the jacket – that It is almost, barely too small perhaps – he just had a growth spurt – the necklaces seem like charms to ward off evil and keep him safe. I hope they work.
Whatever Is The New Black
November 3, 2009 at 3:50 pm
Wow's he's a beautiful boy! I like his jewelry, although I'm a woman..I'd trade closets with him!
If only I was 15 years younger :) I don't remember young boys EVER looking like that…
November 3, 2009 at 3:58 pm
Like her (everyone else is saying "his") mixed message jewelry (crucifix, gun, hamsa). The rest of the outfit and the neo-beatle haircut work, too.
November 3, 2009 at 4:01 pm
I agree the jacket is a smart look, not sure about the three levels of chains
November 3, 2009 at 4:11 pm
I would like this look better if he picked only one of the necklaces to wear.
November 3, 2009 at 4:17 pm
precocious young man. looks like the jacket is too small for him and i'm not sure about all the chains. surely one is enough? on his way to being terminally hip.
very chic! LOVE IT!
November 3, 2009 at 4:26 pm
This boy's style reeeeks of London, and it makes me proud to be a Londoner…
November 3, 2009 at 4:31 pm
I find this look a bit forced and derivative I'm afraid, perhaps in part because of his youth.
November 3, 2009 at 4:35 pm
Lil playa!… The jacket is cut well for such a small torso…. nice
November 3, 2009 at 4:37 pm
This guy's way too cool for school …Love his well thought of look!
November 3, 2009 at 4:49 pm
Hair = greatFit of jacket = amazingJewelry = spot onLove the hint of pocket square too!
November 3, 2009 at 4:52 pm
Chic, adorable, stylin', all that stuff. I hope he hangs on to his style.
That is one sharp little jacket. *I just had to tell you that my mom was looking up your book to buy for my birthday. The only thing on the Amazon search was the Bespoke Edition. She about had a heart attack! Thank goodness we found the regular one!
November 3, 2009 at 4:59 pm
Very cool, also somehow naive. Love this snuggy jacket.
November 3, 2009 at 5:06 pm
Boy? Girl? Doesn't matter!Love this shot. Your images of androgyny are among my favorite photographs in your body of work.
November 3, 2009 at 5:13 pm
Love his jewellery.

November 3, 2009 at 5:31 pm
His look is on point. small blazer, crew neck T, Dark jeans.The necklaces are hot (many kids have a 50/50 view of religion and protect) cool rings, and I think I see a pocket sq peeking out of his jacket pocket. The hair pulls it all together. Young, Gifted and Cool.Androgyny is wear a lot of young super fashionable men start.
The world can be a fashionable place, look closer!
November 3, 2009 at 5:50 pm
love his blazers :0
November 3, 2009 at 6:16 pm
He has an awesome style. I love when people know how to mix tailored clothes with daily stuff.Best things: the little gun, and his face.
I hope he gets really famous.

Six pieces of flair!
November 3, 2009 at 6:49 pm
Can you just imagine the breadth of middle school hearts (of both genders) broken in his gentle wake? Besides fashionable — decidedly *not ugly*.
November 3, 2009 at 6:50 pm
I think he looks amazing. I love his facial expression. I'm sure 10 years ago I would have had a crush on him. I'm also totally intimidated by him.
November 3, 2009 at 6:56 pm
I love his look!!! Simply but great. And a little androgynous. IT'S GREAT!
November 3, 2009 at 7:03 pm
Wow, he looks great! Hardly ever do I see a young man so stylish. I'd like to see more of his looks.
November 3, 2009 at 7:13 pm
I like the jewellery and the fit of the jacket.
November 3, 2009 at 7:41 pm
This is going to be my next haircut!
November 3, 2009 at 8:11 pm
It's all in the details: The silver, well-chosen jewelry, the punk pin, the subdued colors, and of course this young man's attitude. Very inspiring.
November 3, 2009 at 8:23 pm
Very well done. I just think it's amusing that any look consisting of short hair, a blazer, t-shirt and jeans can ever be called androgynous when historically all are decidedly part of a man's uniform. It would be androgynous if he was a girl, but as it is I see a well-dressed, confident young man with perhaps an unusual taste for jewelry.
November 3, 2009 at 8:44 pm
too cool for words.. seriously!
November 3, 2009 at 9:19 pm
a gun, cross, and hamsa presented together? no amount of designer clothing can hide youth and naivety.
November 3, 2009 at 9:30 pm
To PoppyScott:"I love the lowest necklace. On my own search for one."
Try some places that sell "Judaica" stuff – they usually have plenty to choose from, or Jew jewellery stores… hope London has at least one.
i wouldn't wear Cross and Hamsa(hand pendant) together… – too conflicting to each other, despite the fact that Jesus was born Jew!

For some, being cool is a learned art. For others, it is a natural gift. It would be an interesting exercise indeed, were it possible, to see what this boy will be like as a young man in about 10 years. That he is already able to do so much with relatively little is commendable. By the way, am I the only one who noticed that he has a pistol dangling around his neck between the two crosses? If this is intentional, then surely his sense of irony is demonstrative of an uncommon maturity, or at the least, a keen sense of how to manipulate symbols for maximum effect. That, or as my British relatives would more likely say, "Too clever by half."
November 3, 2009 at 9:50 pm
pure perfection, love the jewelry
November 3, 2009 at 10:13 pm
November 3, 2009 at 10:38 pm
Absolute perfection! Can't even handle it. So good.
November 3, 2009 at 10:48 pm

November 3, 2009 at 11:34 pm
It is EXTREMELY rare to see a teenager with true style. Kudos!!! :)
November 4, 2009 at 1:17 am
good lookin out on saving that school uniform blazer from 6th grade. just don't go so fast that you don't save some growing up till you're at least 20.
be a kid for a minute and keep lookin' sharp
November 4, 2009 at 2:39 am
Kid is STYLIN'! Looks like a young Leo!

A litte Di Caprio :)Nice.
November 4, 2009 at 5:15 am
He's rocking the Qassabah although he should ditch all the jewellery and wear a single 18k yellow gold skull ring. And a vintage watch, ideally.
November 4, 2009 at 7:04 am
i don't like this look at all…
the rings look like women's jewellery, the necklace shapes should be similar length/intertwined and the fit/shilouette of the blazer is really quite off putting
November 4, 2009 at 7:34 am
the choice of necklace is unfortunate. what looks to be a cross, a gun and a hand of fatima? i guess he can be forgiven at his age in not knowing what direction to choose. also, the proper age to wear topman clothes.
November 4, 2009 at 8:29 am
November 4, 2009 at 9:30 am
Reminds me of college dressing in the 80s – jewelry that 'reads' down (and the symbolism reads coherently to me!), the pin, the jacket, the black jeans – and beautiful as well. Intriguing kid.
November 4, 2009 at 10:10 am
good use of necklaces!

love the blazer and the chains. annonymous 2:10pm, give the guy kid some credit – i'm sure he combined those particular chains deliberately. the contrast is interesteing, no?
November 4, 2009 at 11:46 am
The kids are alright….

This looks SO much like my ten-year-old son, I had to show my husband. He immediately emailed me back with: DON'T SHOW HIM THIS PICTURE!!!!!
November 4, 2009 at 1:16 pm
Oh he's awesome. great jewelry too!
November 4, 2009 at 2:00 pm

What the hell? The first necklace is a crucifix and the second is a Jewish chamsa…..conflicted, no?
November 4, 2009 at 2:09 pm
I love that look!
November 4, 2009 at 3:04 pm
does anyone feel to close a connection between his style and the Jonas Brothers? Tight, short, gray blazer, many pieces of jewelry, and disheveled bedhead
November 4, 2009 at 3:52 pm
Such a young and well dressed teen!
November 4, 2009 at 4:38 pm
this is young style done right. all these piece could be found at any general store yet by adding the tight blazer and the jewelry, which but the way is a cross, a gun and a buddhist hand and seriously if you folks think he is conflicted or even observate christian or jew, you don't know fashion at all.
November 4, 2009 at 5:09 pm
great shot. makes me wonder what hes thinking…not to mention hes beautiful!
November 4, 2009 at 5:17 pm
Such a great blazer this lad is wearing!
November 4, 2009 at 8:01 pm
the look is simple but genius…i had to study this several times to determine male/female. settled on male… only because of the hands. the haircut is phenomenal. the last necklace looks a lot like vintage Trifari.
November 4, 2009 at 8:11 pm
i like it
the kid's got swagga
November 4, 2009 at 9:44 pm
The whole look is wonderful. Love his hair and his blazer. The necklaces & rings are a nice touch esp. the pistol.
November 4, 2009 at 10:24 pm
I was wondering if anyone might think that, rather than him just randomly throwing on these necklaces that are bothering people so, perhaps he was trying to make a statement with them? As in 'here, start at top and read down'. And what a statement that is, yes?
He is obviously very smart, very beautiful, and very willing to push boundaries and make strong statements.
November 5, 2009 at 1:29 am
CPeterson, haven't you heard? The Devil is English, at least according to Brigitte Bardot.
November 5, 2009 at 3:53 am
It really looks like everything has been fixed to the end…we,ll hear from him…great!
November 5, 2009 at 6:40 am
Although he's cute, I'm not really a fan of the fashion. It's like he tried to recreate the vintage Mod look using clothes from H&M – with his single perfectly placed badge and his evenly distributed necklaces. For the type of look he's going for, I think something just that little bit more disheveled and haphazard would have been good.
November 5, 2009 at 1:46 pm
the fit of that jacket is really nice.
November 5, 2009 at 2:45 pm
me encanta todo su look!!!
November 5, 2009 at 3:05 pm
he is so young but has already an incredible sens of style.
November 5, 2009 at 11:31 pm
Is this a boy or a girl? The coat buttons like a woman's coat.
November 6, 2009 at 3:23 am
um. wow. is he for real? seriously great style.
November 6, 2009 at 5:43 am
well this is nice :)
November 6, 2009 at 5:52 am
I love how some people get all worked up about the "abstraction" of symbolic meaning of icons in fashion…and then go on and talk about the "Hindu Hand." Come on. As young as this boy is, style-wise he knows what he's doing.
November 6, 2009 at 8:59 am

I love that hand of fatimah pendant!
November 7, 2009 at 12:00 pm
November 7, 2009 at 7:04 pm
People are commenting that he's borrowing old styles and wearing cheap clothes, give him some credit! He's probably under 16, which means he's just experimenting and copying is part of that, and part of being young. And I bet we all remember what it was like to try to dress well on a saturday job budget!

May I please have his number? (I'm fifteen)
November 9, 2009 at 11:19 pm
He looks like he's borrowing some serious preacher style. Could he possibly be referencing the film "There Will Be Blood"?
November 10, 2009 at 9:56 pm
love the combo of all the jewelry mixed w/ the simple outfit. great!
November 12, 2009 at 10:26 am
increased awareness in fashion from so early is to be noticed and congradulated for! he's indeed a melange of classy, cute and sexy, trapped between a boy and a man! i like!!! also the chains are so… manoush!

December 7, 2009 at 5:58 am
Something borrowed perhaps?
December 8, 2009 at 4:02 pm
Very boy/girl stylish. Bowie for the next generation. Loads of this look in London at the minute for boys/girls and those who are generally lithe enough to carry it off. Those of us who are more curvy have to combine the ultra masculine stylised tailoring with ultra feminine boho notes. Another wave of the New Romantic in any case.
August 18, 2010 at 7:39 am
I wish I had had that kind of confidence to pull something like this off when I was that age. Hell, I wish I had it today.
