    Now that can't be easy to iron! Reminds me of the Louboutin rollerball flats.

    There is a raging punk hidden somewhere beneath that boys proffessional exterior. Like a rocking Clark Kent.

    I don't like the pants.
    would be good if he wears something tight.

    This is amazing. I love the nonchalance of one collar tucked under and the other folded over.

    I would have chosen a sweater with a lower neckline for a shirt with such interesting collar.

    What an interesting look.. At first glance it's very plain and almost studious and then you notice those studs and they add an unexpected edge to the look.

    looks ill at ease or totally comfortable with himself. a very strange affectation with the collar, which cannot decide whether it wants to be in or out.

    nah… too reminiscent of a collar usually found on a great dane. it doesn't make sense. you don't see great danes going around with button downs, do you? fantastic colour on the thin pull-over though. I have the very same and that's why it's fantastic.

    This looks great…quite enjoying the colour of his knit top too, it softens the studding.

    Hmm I'm a bit surprised someone above said "tacky". To me a great unexpected detail. I love his sweater, now that is sophisticated looking and those studs… its a little peek at what is lurking under that classical exterior.

    Interesting embellishment.

    I have used those fabulous strips of snaps, and tiny, multiple buttons as decorative material, but I haven't seen studs used in this way…except on a dog collar!

    Simple as his clothes are, there are subtle details that make me think he is a designer.

    a great look; he wears the collar with such aplomb. Love the half-in, half-out. He looks quite natural, not the slightest bit pretentious or "trendy," with such a trendy addition. Somehow I like the studs here.

  50. M3

    I remember Alexa Chung wearing the same studded shirt and it looking very different on her. I think I like it better without the sweater over top, or maybe if he wore it less sloppily. I do like the color of his sweater though.

    November 15, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    I love it! Amazing and inspiring. This simple detail is so subtle and visually in-cohesive with the rest of his ensemble that the studs on his collar make his outfit intersting. Without them he would look like he stepped out of a Gap commercial.

    There are a few bars in Berlin and Amsterdam I know of where that collar would be highly appreciated, otherwise it is any laundry's nightmare, and (no doubt) not TSA friendly. As for the color, could he have intentionally tried to find one that would make him more invisible, I can't imagine where he would have looked. Interesting, but no thank you.

    > Fred Astaire avait coutume de laisser dépasser volontairement un des deux pointes de son col, comme ce jeune homme. Ceci pour éveiller l'envie de le toucher chez son public féminin, de s'occuper de lui. Bonne tactique, non ? Essayez, ça marche à tous les coups.

    I like how he's dressed, it seems simple but the nailed collar give an another touch – I didn't notice this, the collar. No, in fact it still simple, but the collar just draw us by the brightness. It's cool, I think it's not too much, the " nails " don't bright a lot, and the clothes and the face's man mollify the all ! He's got a sweet face and wear nails – I think symbol of strenght – on his collar, and keep being normal because after all, its just a detail. That's cool I like.

    The shirt is great, but the sweater's color is daring. It could so easily be off-putting. In fact, perhaps that's why I waited to make a comment.

    What I really like about the sweater is it's weight. How it hangs. I wonder what it's made of.

    There are so many things I like about this photo. Mostly that one collar point is tucked into his sweater. Uber Cool

    the collar is genius. i don't dig the overall look, though. not neat enough. not lookin' clean-cut enough. he should try harder ;)
