    I hear a Smiths tune in the distance…

    Does this mean that most of the greek teenagers are “in” fashion? They have been dressing exactly like this for more than 30 years now, it is a typical senior high school get up for teens here.

      It looks like you know what you are talking about, but I think – and this may be part of the reason for its inclusion here – is that good haircuts and a military jackets are classic and attractive… And adaptable for personal touches. i smiled over the Smiths comment, too.

    Satorialist, I love you, but I’m so not into the military jacket thing. When will it end?

    The green army style has been popular among us Swedish teens for a few years now, almost every other person has adapted the green military jacket to their wardrobe.

    Love the red belt peeking through all the military green. I like that it’s a cropped army jacket. He’s wearing a shoulder tote, how European of him.

    Well deployed use of red, down to the
    red(dish) hair, but otherwise, not distinctive, I’d say….

    I’ve always thought about doing this, but never thought it could really work. Well, it does! This is great inspiration.

    I know what he is going for; but it’s over done, I say! ewww. a little less of the “thin red belt and lost-in-space look” would be more.

    this looks great. guys like this always get static on this website. i don’t think most so-called “geek teenagers” dress like this at all. It’s all about the fit. this is spot on: perfect jacket length, and that red belt makes it…

    I understand you are talking about colours here , and I think military green is one of the most versatile colors to mix.
    I LOVE:

    Military green +white
    Military green +black AND white
    Military green + primary colors
    Military green + liberty prints

    I could name more combinations , but i might bore everybody.

    I´m loving your work at Style.com !

    I don’t know what it is, but it looks perfect on him.

    This is such a cool look, wish I could have the innovation to include that thin red belt…brilliant. And there’s no way any geek looks like this, this guy knows exactly how to mix casual with a sense of incredible style.

    this is probably going to sound gross to some people, but i also really like military green + a bright light leaf green. unexpected colour combos = fashion fun.

    Its too bad when polotics interferes with fun (like fashion), but being from the states things military turn my stomach lately.

    Have others noticed the little game of “telephone” that’s going on here? “Sandman_gr” said that the outfit is similar to the dress of “Greek teenagers” — as in teenagers living in Greece — not “geek teenagers.”

    I think I just fell in love with his glasses.

    Didn’t he say “gReek” – not geek?

    He is put together really well. I would love to know if his jeans were skinny or straight. And yes, he channeled Morrissey just a bit with that hair.

    Half the men’s jacket styles seem to have been derived from military jackets in the 19th century. I do hope, though, this doesn’t mean the return of the Bundeswehr jacket…

    PS: He is a good-looking man and to me he – dare I write this?! – looks like a cross between Morrisey and designer Erdem Moriologlou.
