    James Danziger’s scarf: calculated, old. Young Paris’ scarf: casual, youthful. This is a study in very measured proportions that are very much pulled off (and topped off) by that mop of hair.

    i just loved the jacket, but man, that hair is really damaged.

    I don’t know which is better: his hair, the jacket, or the wall in the background?

    this may be my favorite look you’ve featured yet Sart! possibly because it’s exactly what i would wear…or WANT to wear if i could find that jacket…

    what a lovely mop of hair!

    because of his frizzy brown hair, i think he looks like bob dylan. why didn’t anyone else think of this? come one! it’s so obvious: young, male, curly brown hair! bob dylan, guys, man are you all slow on the uptake, he’s a dead ringer, as are roughly 80% of young caucasian males with wild brown hair. here comes the story of the hurricane! like a rolling stone! boots of spanish leather! stuck inside of mobile! jingle-jangle! she’s an artist she don’t look back! aaah remember when he went electric his hair looked totally sweet

    He is so cute and cool! I think it is a very unusual thing for such a young boy to have such a clear sense of style -scarf, belt, ring, pose…- That is what makes him so extraordinary.

    Did he decide to wear all that on his own? I can’t help wondering if that outfit is constructed out of some girlfriend’s, brother’s or parent’s advice. Anyway, that would be a natural thing and it really doen’t matter much.

    Rock n’ Roll attitude, but so meticulously styled + proportioned: could the scarf be more perfectly wrapped (cascading diagonal of the fringe). He looks great! I’d be looking twice if i passed this lad on the street!

    I was trying to decide why I loved this shot so much when I realized that I – one of the biggest Bob Dylan fans in the history of the world – was looking at an outfit my favorite musician might wear. Haha!

    This guy is definitely cool.

    To be honest, he looks a lot more like a hobbit to me than Bob Dylan, but he’s adorably cute. I like the length and texture of the jacket witht he scarf and lighter belt. Very approachably rock and roll. Where were these guys when I was in high school?

    a great jacket is a great jacket, no matter what the price, if you need something to be expensive to make it look good you lack personal style.

    Yes, Chloe! Hadn’t thought of convincing Sart to come to Montreal by saying that the Parisian diaspora could be found here. Nice!

    Sart, really: what say you? Rentre a Montreal, man!!

    Yes, there’s a pinch of Paris here but there’s so much more.

    C’mon? C’mon. C’mon!

    Oh, yes, and lil laddy looks lovely.

    If I knew someone who dressed like that, had a face like that and had hair like that … well, I would either die and/or jump him (not in that order).

    But the look is amazing.

    And I can see the Bob Dylan resemblance. But, and this is me still being in high school, he also bears a resemblance to Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brother — only in the face/hair/skinny body. “Young Paris’s” clothes are much more toned down and chic-er/cooler than the JoBro.

    Ah, youth.
    This photo almost made me cry. Teenage boys, you know? I’m a Mom. I have one. And I know how much they worry about looks and piecing things together and I see how much thought he’s put into this perfect look.
    But I couldn’t tell him that… you see… he’d die of embarrasment.

    What everyone thinks the youth of Paris looks like. He’s in fact a rarity, no show, subdued details, contrasted belt (cannot see shoes). Superbe, très beau.

    something so plain about the image, then i realize that it is so in harmony. nothing but a deeply connected casual existence. that young man has refined taste and style.
    perhaps perfect.
    perfect taste, style, time of day, angle of shot, mood.
    thanks sart. for sharing it.
