    Is this your french counterpart?
    Love the top look – the duster, red beanie and those boots. It shows he has a sensitivity for texture and form.

    Which High Impact Accessory are we talking about? The camera? The beanie? His legs?

    Nice hat and clothes. Except for the pants. They just don’t do it for me.

    Nice style for the boy. But I’m not a fan of his shoes. I know they’re sort of fashionable, and I love some of the pairs you find in shops. But this ones are to Doc Martinsesque! :)
    And the red hat? Too much Cousteau-ish. It’s a no for me.

    I wonder where he finds all these items to wear, although I suspect that he is (at least partly) a thrift shopper like me. Boots like those are definitely the item of the season, still searching for mine… Jorge from W Palm Beach

    So sexy – I haven´t seen such a sexy young man since ages! The boots are perfect, the caps divine.
    Both fotos are so great. Lovely to be alive.

    Sorry, is it his hat or his camera?

    Cap, coat/jacket, camera, slim trousers and laced boots. The upper is the “bougeois” version, the lower shows the “classic” version.
    But the essence, the idea is — as far as I can tell– the same. A personal style, working with different clothes. wowz!

    I went to uni with this lovely Kiwi boy in Paris – he always looked wonderful and interesting even at 8am in the morning.

    fabulous – he’s all man n’ bones! I like this look for anyone – longer something on top, skinny pants and bigger shoes to balance it out.

    “High impact” makes me think of brickbats, which is kind of the way these looks strike me. Oh, well, to each his own.

    Does anyone know what kind of camera he is using? This look is refreshing and fantastic. I love the cardigan/blazer mix in the first photo.

    oh Jasper….no wonder you want to stay in Paris…no doubt that the style you evoke is genetic – how can you help but look so good! wwanddi (work that one out)

    I love the look he is going for. I think the boots he is wearing could be a little more beat up, and i think he needs to pull his touque/beanie over his ears. it’s a bit distracting. I think the jeans are fabulous in the first one. the cardigan is great.. there’s something however about the way he is wearing it that i don’t like. i think he needs to get a little dirtier to complete the look. he looks too pretty.
    overall, i’m appreciative of his look.

    I really, really don’t like the elf beanie. Everything else is great.

    I have visions of a bunch of people with cameras, roaming public squares, scoping each other out.

    Who shot first, and on which blog do we find the snap of Sart?

    Love the top image. I’m even considering finding a coat like that. Don’t know about the beanie though….
    Apart from that, very wearable, well done!

    he looks great. so great. if only all guys could dress this well. Come to think of it, a lot of guys in Australia dress like this, but very few pull it off like him.

    Que interesante, el primer ensemble me recuerda a Mon Oncle de Jacques Tati, y el segundo a los “beatnicks” en Hairspray de John Waters. Me gustan los dos, pero esta SUPER Flaco el gĂĽey!!

    That he’s a NZer makes a lot of sense. You can’t walk down the street without bumping into boys like him in Wellington and Dunedin.

    I love it.

    There is something about the first photo with the little red hat that reminded me of the Greek palace guards in Athens. The duster length recalls the white skirt; the curl on the shoes, the big poms on their feet, and they also wear little red hats, don’t they? Strange….

    The red hat combined with everything else reminds me of Noble Savage

    I think I would find carrying a camera around in hand as well as what looks to be a briefcase would be too cumbersome. That being said Im still trying to figure out a good way to carry my camera around with a bag so kudos to him! I like that he appears to be wearing the same boots in both shots (or very similar ones, which would be overkill), if they are the same boots that speaks very highly to his ability to mix up his style nicely.

    Like Andrea.at.the.blue.door said…I wonder who shot who first??? It’s like a Sartorialist Western which blog would we find your pic(Scott)??? He doesn’t look too friendly he seems aware of you, but he seems to have ego. Who ever he is I must say he has effortless style.

    Not anyone can pull this look off. I think it is wonderful, he does it with such ease and looks great.

    I particularly love the second look…the shoes with the pants? love it =)

    His style is so incredibly distinct, i really don’t think his clothes would look right on anyone else…

    you ask of the jackets – they are both vintage, the black one specifically is comme i think.

    jasper is a foxy production who is great to go op shopping with, and melbourne misses him all the time!
