    once more a pic of the series
    ” two-in-one” . :)

    1. Hello cutie! You are a beautiful man. No worries. Great hair!
    2. I love the super-descreet way you wear your scarf under your collar.
    3. Rolled up trousers + shoes + bracelets + two different bags… the lower part of you looks like a bagpacker coming home from a beach-trip.
    4. But it looks like you´re comfortable with it and that´s the most important thing.

    Greetings from far away!

    Love those blues – i feel relaxed and happy just looking at them. I like the way he plays off the vibrant turquoise with a conservative top half, and the dotted neckerchief just visible.

    For me, the key things when picking a cardigan, are a tigh fit (high armholes and slim body) and buttons that match the color of the sweater and don’t stand out. I think the buttons on his cardi are a bit grandfatherly. I pretty much like everything else since it seems to fit, and it sticks to the oh-so-classic khaki and blue palette. I would lose the backpack and trade it for another tote, if he must. How many articles are out there on how backpacks are not hot??? Jorge from W Palm Beach

    Nice layering with the shirt sleeves turned over the cardi-cuffs. Cute.

    I like the touch of a scarf and the way he’s wearing it. The top half is very classically inspired, and all looks good to me. The pants and shoes being more casual and the pants brightly colored may prevent a totally unified look but they don’t detract from his overall style. Nice bags, too.

    Jorge, I usually agree with your comments, but not the buttons… on a summer cardigan a contrasting (more usually white/light/mop) button gives it a fresher look.

    Like the bashed up look of the driving shoes, but they look too wide; don’t have that slim feel of Italy’s finest…

    The tonal quality of all of the blues really add something whimsical to the look, like he may have rolled out of bed and right into new york fashion week. somehow with all the bags, the droopy shoes seem to work. fabulous.

    the shoes make him look very stumpy.
    it doesnt help that the pants cuts his legs off at such an awkward way.
    honestly, i never got the entire rolled-up cuff thing.

    Can someone explain the pants rolling thing to me? Especially rolling jeans over oxfords.

    I want to like it, and do on some guys, but can’t get comfortable with it.

    Agree with Catrina. The discreet scarf is fantastic. Just the right degree of accessory. And the bag in his right hand is fantastic. Any idea where I can find one like it!

    i love the composition but i think there is a bit of ‘too-many-trends-in-one-outfit’ here. the rolled pants, the shoes, the cardigan and the tucked scarf. i know that style is personal but this outfit is not for me. he looks good but it’s too much for me.

    love him love his style. was hoping that was a heavy metal necklace, but it’s a scarf. nonetheless, he’s got it. great proportions. great colors. nice casual “what, this?” look. so tired of people trying too hard. posh, for example.

    The colors are good, the pieces are good, but with everything untucked and hanging out, that slack-shouldered pose and bulky bags hanging down like shopping bags, it all looks like (sorry guy model) frumpy housewife. If he tucked in his shirt and stood up straight, you might have something.

    Remember as a kid when you got that candy bar and it had all that beautiful wrapper with all those colors and you started to open it so very slowly, licking your fingers cause you got some sweet on them and anticipating how delicious it’s going to be once in your mouth! I kind of feel that way right now.

    Love the backpack. G
    reat color combo on the outfit. It seems it’s backwards or something, like the pants would usually be the color of the shirt and the sweater would be the color of the pants.
    Do you know what I’m saying?
    I think it looks dope.

    This look gives me a sense of an all-American look…STREET STYLE. I like the cardigan its appropriate for his age, and doesn’t appear to be “grandfatherly,” as “Jorge W from Palm Beach” puts it. Clearly there’s potential in this trio piece and this guy was certainly able to pull it off. Although, I do wish the bright blue corduroy pants were actually bright yellow and at knee length and that he should loose the bookbag and if possible but not necessary carry a luggage bag instead of the tote he’s carrying, and he should wear better moccasins or he could wear crocs, whatever works for him. am i “knit-picking,” too much? sorry. but all together it’s a clever look. ^^

    and the trousers are my favorite!!he carries them so flawlessly .
    not for a second did i think there was something odd about them ….
    the whole looks is boyishly masculine ~~ WITH turquoise trousers~~
    very cool indeed~~

    Young guy, so everything works for him, but… why those pants doesn´t fit him. I love the cardigan and the shirt, the scarf, great touch, but his shoes are not clean, and all those bags? will be better and more confortable just to have one big bag. Anyway, that´s NYC growing and growing and trying and trying… that´s the difference and what it make so cool to watch people around the world, By the way… LOVE THIS BLOG Sart!!!

    Unkempt, messy, carrying way too much stuff. Thin is nice. I’m surprised this studied look doesn’t also have the sweater misbuttoned. He’s cute and young, and maybe this is a look for only the cute and young, but he’s not a fashion plate.

    I love this! I just love it when somebody can take what is typically structured and break it down into a relaxed, almost dishevelled chic. I also like his colour balance as well.
    He looks relaxed and he has a general sense of calm, in what I am sure was quite a hectic moment.

    Think the hidden buttons of the shirt are a subtle but beneficial element, (especially in light of the cardigan button discussion)
    Everything else ( ‘cept maybe the backpack) feels right-on. Kewl without overkill. Bracelets, scarf (?) could be too much, but on this kid they aren’t.
    Looks good.

    everyone seems to be saying how parts of his outfit are not fashionable or hot. i think that what makes the outfit so great.
    he’s comfortable in it and manages to pull it off and look very stylish, even if the trend-slaves, and i am exaggerating there, don’t agree.

    it’s just his own style.

    I love those pants so much and how he cuffed them (he did it to look cool, and he does-period). As an aside, I cannot believe someone commented on this blog that he should wear crocs! The worse item of footwear invented in the last three decades?! Are you sure you’re on the right blog?

    Not a bad look. I like the combination of elements, the colors. The pants could fit him better. I’m sure they give him a concave booty . Pants this loose on skinny guys tend to do that. It seems big with teens but really anti-sexy. I’m not crazy about the rolled-up hems either unless he’s at the beach.

    I bet the scarf (if that’s what is peaking out from his collar) would look great and add more to the outfit if it were more visible. I also like his other accessories, bags (though I don’t care for them together), bracelets, shoes, wan and irritated expression.

    His stance had me laughing at first–to me, it’s like he’s trying to be patient but he’s annoyed with you stopping him to take a photo when he’s got somewhere to go.

    Then I sobered…is it just me or is that a haunted or jaded look in his eyes? It’s like the “I’m too old and seen too much” look. Doesn’t belong on someone so young…

    There’s other contrasts between young and old throughout the entire outfit, like the cardigan paired with youthful turquoise. A very memorable shot.

    the pants should be more fitted

    This is just terrible. It’s not that the look isn’t trendy (if anything it’s trying to hard to be both trendy and not). It’s just bad: rotting shoes, misfitting pants, hobo bags. It’s rather awful from the waist down.
