    Really odd pose, but I like his lean look. You see the difference between European and American physiques here. US guys usually are much more pumped up in the upper body. That’s why lean looks are not as popular stateside.

    wHAT a sweet guy.He looks so ordinary-clothes just aren´t his ´thing´.Okay-he could have tied the sleevs of his sweater just to pull it all together.The watch on his arm should be on his wrist.And-this makes me happy-he has a homemade ´I AM NOT A PLASTIC BAG ´ on his shoulder.

    Endearing expression and posture…reminds me of the expression my boy makes when Auntie or Grandma is showering him with hugs and kisses and he’s trying to endure it…The backlighting makes the image look photoshopped–though I’m certain it is not–as though this guy doesn’t quite know how he landed here.

    The best thing about this picture is THE BAG!

    To Andrew—-Yes US guys are really pumped up- their body reminds me of a round ball.So many are way overweight.The lean type is far more nicer to look at.We in Europe find the US looks not so popular.

    Pumped up? Is that another word for fat?

    Could he be any more pleased to have you photograph him?

    I like his look. It’s got a touch of ‘hipster’ without coming off as forced and obnoxious. I guess that’s the main difference between Europeans and Americans– subtlety.

    it’s very simple, but there is something about him.

    But again I’m a sucker for a slouchy shirt

    I’d have to disagree. The American gene pool has plenty long and lean’s.

    I look to this photo to enjoy the photo, not so much the actual outfit. The boy here is adorable and quirky, but not stylistically inspiring for me. I like how the composition emphasizes his slenderness, too.

    hot boy! hot boy!
    the pose
    the facial expression
    the physique
    the hair
    and lastly the clothes that accentuate all these things.

    “Sartorial? Ich?”

    That’s what I think he’s thinking. Or he’s great at playing coy.

    Andrew’s comment on US guys being ‘pumped up in the upper body’ I think referred to muscles, acquired thru tireless afternoons at the gym or by way of other dubious supplements.

    My experience is the same: Am currently in Sweden and notice a much slimmer – more natural – body size for the guys here, compared to the beefy rugby-player type you see in Australia.

    OK that’s my 30 öres worth.

    he looks like he’s related to old boy with the polka dot bag.

    Great colors! The greys and blacks in his outfit nicely accentuate the white shoes.

    stupid comment…not all guys in the streets of berlin are germans. especially not around this corner.

    and this guy is bulgarian by the way.

    Everyone keeps talking about his height and lean body, but has anyone noticed his beautiful face? Might be the hairstyle, but he looks like a tall version of Prince.

    very nice, wish american men looked like this. Sometimes they get close then hop right over to eyeliner and punky color, ruining it!
