    What I noticed first is the way he's tied his sweater around his waist. Has he somehow integrated it with his belt? Whatever he's done, it's a great look and moves him beyond "a guy in a shirt and pants." It's all in the details, isn't it?

    When you can ride the bus with your head sticking out,

    Wear a wrinkled shirt with the sleeves pulled up in one bout,

    Then acknowledge the presence of a Parisian belle,

    That just caught your eyes and put you under her spell,

    When you can master the above like a Parisian, then

    And only then, should you criticise his clothes through your pen.

    Nice photo, -but perfection as regards the outfit? -I had to take a second look to find it, but perhaps it's to do with the slim cut of the shirt that, along with the slightly heavier weight of the fabric, flatters his shoulder as he turns. And the shirt sleeves shoved up just that little bit farther than usual.. the slim waist of the shirt.. All this creates a pleasing proportion that is decptively nonchalant.
    I worry about the wrinkles in the sleeves of his nice jacket knotted around his waist though! So tired of those shades too!

    Hey Zuccotto, my grandma liked to use the expression, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say it at all." What's so nice about this blog is that we can all chime in about personal likes and dislikes, different looks and moments, and have a variety of respectful opinions. We don't have to agree, but we do have to be polite. Implying that previous posters are moronic because they like something you don't isn't respectful.

    More photos of skinny, TALL, hot, young men. Please. PLEASE! We don't get to see enough of the younger flesh. That old adage, 'Tall, Dark & Handsome'? Totally true. Let's face it, all the DOLCE VITA's aside, women (and i think deep-down, men too…) want to see hot young men. That's right. Skinny, superfit, TALL men. add style into the mix, and hey, THAT is untouchable, envious perfection.

    I think this guy is American actually, or English, but certainly not French. He's a stylist for GQ, can't remember the name. Pretty striking in real life; very tall, skinny, cooler-than-thou demeanour. I suspect that's what Scott saw, but agree with the comments that it looks nothing special on paper.

    Simple is good. What shines most for me is his sunnies..(sunglasses). The shirt color suits him; but as though he pulled it from the clothes basket? Although, with his hair, physique and smile… It still works!

    As a European girl I am allowed to say that I have seen this look far too often to find it impressive or fabulous or "stylish"
    My own father wears this look all the time in his spare time, as do his friends and a lot of guys I get to see in the city, and I do not even live in Paris.
    Honestly, simple outfits aren't reserved for the Parisiens or Milanese.
    Yeah yeah sure the hair cut is nice and the shirt fits him well. But this is just the same BORING and uninspired look worn by plenty.

    So much of what makes thesartorialist’s photos striking is the attitude (in the sense of how the body is carried) of the subject.

    The clothes here, I think, are unremarkable. But the boy is handsome, has a great lanky frame, and has positioned his body in an attractive way.

    That’s why designers use models to show off their clothes. Which raises the question, how much does the body vs the clothes make the “style”?
