i guess he could wear anything (or nothing!) and look amazing.
*fans self*

wow! that's front page!


Anonymous Gary said ... (10:27 AM) : 

Cool shorts. He's super fit, nice athletic build. Really ready for summer on the beach...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:34 AM) : 

Wow. I suppose you could have made some facile comment about the perfect length of his boardshorts or the carefully low-slung waist...but no, better to let the abs speak for themselves.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:48 AM) : 

break me off a piece of that!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:19 AM) : 

Come on, is this turning into a gay blog or what? What does muscles have to do with style?


Anonymous Nath said ... (11:47 AM) : 

He is really HOT!!!!


Anonymous Quigley said ... (12:13 PM) : 

This has absolutely nothing to do with any sort of individual style. Everyone just seems to be salivating over the exposed parts of his body.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:18 PM) : 

I guess 2% body fat is always in style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:40 PM) : 

i believe "beefcake" is a better word than "sartorialist" in this case...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:46 PM) : 

yummy! thank you sarto!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:49 PM) : 

i can't stand boardshorts

give me a pair of cute Vilebrequin trunks anyday

No pecs...

this is the kind of guy that'd make me forget my name


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:32 PM) : 

For a straight guy, you have excellent taste in half-undressed men. But then, we're all bombarded with this Sears-suit-wearing gym-bunny image all the time. So, for anybody, it's nice to see a guy who takes care of himself, without it looking like he tries to hard, and pulling of beach casual with grace and ease. Thanks once again, The Sartorialist.

hey baby!


Anonymous mai said ... (5:12 PM) : 

He looks great, you make me consider to move to New York ;p


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:20 PM) : 

The blue shorts work well with the yellow-striped ball. Very "Life Aquatic."


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:59 PM) : 

Huh? I think he's actually kind of sickly looking. And those board shorts are straight off a rack... I have seen exactly the same pair at least half a dozen times this week alone while out surfing. I'm very confused by the sartorial content of this post.


Anonymous bk said ... (6:08 PM) : 

i thought boardshorts were passe only acceptable for the abercrombie and frat crowd now


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:12 PM) : 

And this has what to do with style? It's a half naked guy in off the rack shorts.


Blogger TJT said ... (8:21 PM) : 

This seems rather out of place for this blog. It seems like our beloved Sartorialist let hot bodies get in the way of his work!

Blogger EMNH said ... (8:43 PM) : 

Scott, Bruce Weber called. He needs his model back.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:53 PM) : 

Wow, so this post really hit a nerve

Someone said they see this all the time when they go surfing,
Well I live in Manhattan - we don't surf so I don't see many board shorts. I'm sure my Norway readers don't see a ton of board shorts.

Second, since guys don't have a lot of options in the heat of summer, I have always (almost jokingly) said that good muscle definition is one of the best accessories a guy can have for tee shirts and shorts.
Sorry but shorts and a good tee are inescapable for Manhattan summers.

Finally I have always said that this blog is about inspiration - I have been working my ass off lately to get back in the shape I want to be in, I have created my own Made-to-Measure body - this photo is a goal of where I would like to get to, I probably wont get all the way there but I won't be far off.

Finally finally as a photographer heavily influenced by Bruce Weber, when you see a shot like this how do you pass it up?


Anonymous carls junior said ... (10:19 PM) : 

you don't see that many boardshorts in manhattan? - i thought those were everywhere...kind of like how someone here already mentioned that it's part of the abercrombie and frat crowd

hopefully we can see some more options in terms of mens swimwear

new york times article on the boardshorts trend


Blogger argos said ... (10:19 PM) : 

Often, when people are critical they are merely projecting some dissatisfactory image of themselves. Someone who can label this as sickly looking is most likely in sickly bad shape themselves. In addition, here they can do it with annonimity.

I work hard too...and I was inspired. Yes, and I am straight.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (10:25 PM) : 

no i see very few board shorts in the city, maybe at the beach but i have not been there yet this summer


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:26 PM) : 

Heck its HIS blog... let him post whatever he wants for whatever reason.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:51 PM) : 

bravo. you have managed to post 2 people that i happened to have also seen in person this week (the first being the bright red/orange flower dress). i saw this boy shagging balls at the beach volleyball court in central park. and yes, that is the proper volleyball terminology.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:08 AM) : 

I don't see how anyone can pass up taking a picture of that guy!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:59 AM) : 

I can understand why some people complain, but as our beloved Sartorialist has said, this is NOT a fashion blog, but a STYLE/INSPIRATION blog. I am not sure if it's only me with English as second language, but to me, the definition of the word 'style' is not really restricted to certain things. I think it is how a person projects him/herself to the outside world - often in fashion style but not always. It may be some particular facial expression, haristyle, way of movement, pose, atmosphere, and of course, how the person has fitted his/her body.

Of course it takes tremendously more time and effort to get into a body shape you want than to get a new do or a well-tailored suit. Nonetheless, it is another kind of effort made to express who you are in non-verbal way..

If this guy said "I exercised purely for aesthetic reason", will people be content? If all of my argument fails, then taking this photo not as a 'style' shoot but just as an inspirational NY scene - like those landscapes or whatever.

Lastly, to the Sartorialist: do freely what you want to do. This is your blog, after all. And good luck in your endeavour!


Anonymous ines said ... (3:00 AM) : 

May I boast a little? My boyfriend looks like this guy having slim but muscular body. Lucky me ))

And I'm all in favour of every person who works hard attempting to create his/her body.
Good Luck!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:39 AM) : 

The cut of a shirt, the cut of his abs, its all aesthetics. What makes sartorialist great is the RANGE of his repetoire and appeal.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:19 AM) : 

i was just wondering, do you ever get tired of how petty and bitchy people can be and just want to punch them in the nose? i love love love your blog and love reading the comments, but bloody hell... i wonder if people are slobbed out in front of their computers in unimaginative office wear of perhaps grotty tracksuit pants and t-shirts with cereal slopped down the front as they declare these lovely people too thin or "too 2005" or in need of a smaller bag or better sandal.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:23 AM) : 

I love this photo. This is a fresh example of New York style, inspiration, and attractiveness. Sartorialist, can you please shoot in Central Park more often?


Blogger Gigi said ... (12:32 PM) : 

Gee, I hadn't even noticed the shorts. ;-)


Anonymous SwanDiamondRose said ... (4:04 PM) : 

i'm standing by you on this one sartorialist. i love love how you hit the streets and follow your heart. you are a great non-snob. i even like how you didn't print my one comment one day where i got all catty! heck i would have been ashamed to have it out there anyway.

your range is great, it makes the blog, it really does!


Blogger jean thief said ... (2:09 AM) : 

gah. he looks better shirtless than any of those other folks look in their high priced couture.

love him. and his lovely volleyball. love love.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:45 AM) : 

Actually, we see quite a few boardshorts here in Norway too, but I'm not going to complain. This guy looks hot, comfortable in his own skin, and appears to have a natural and healthy approach to working out (not too big, but still toned). If that's not inspirational, then what is?


Anonymous hannahsthlm said ... (6:08 AM) : 

Want to be i N.Y too...instead im stocked in STHLM...hmmmm...we dont have soo many "hunks" in the parks around here ;)!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:31 AM) : 

I love how some of the guys who are usually drooling over women pictured on this blog are now annoyed when a hot guy is shown. It just proves that physical appearance has so much to do with how we respond to the clothes someone's wearing! When you're tall and blonde, or in this case tall dark and built you are "stylish." Welcome to the world we women live in every day! HAHAhahaha


Blogger seawallrunner said ... (10:49 AM) : 

All I can say is rated R for rrrawr!!


Blogger AngryDuk said ... (3:23 PM) : 

this guy's f'in hot, and I'm a straight guy. he just needs bigger chest muscles i think.

otherwise good post.


Blogger Killer Kitten 12 said ... (9:38 PM) : 

Now that's what I call RELIGION!


Anonymous Norwegian reader said ... (7:33 PM) : 

boardshorts are still cool. How did you know? Of course if you are up in Stavanger this summer you are still more likely to see full-body neoprene.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:04 AM) : 

HOTT guy!!! ...and YES, I am gay with a lean muscular build. RELAX all you haters and go to the gym so you can start loving yourself and stop hating other!...jealous!

the thing thats a turn off is that he KNOWS he's attractive..a touch of modesty never goes astray!

how YOU doin? DAMN!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:22 AM) : 

anon @ 12:41-- that's ridiculous. what is he supposed to do, pretend to be ugly? you're sounding very jealous right now.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:08 AM) : 

I agree with Scott. There is a reason why so many of us are sweating like pigs in the gym in the heat of summer. Can hardly be stylish with flab bulging out at every corner. I work out so I can wear clothes, and if I had the young man's abs, I would be walking around shirtless too.

And the model is NOT sickly. Sickly people do not have shoulders the size of his. Let us all compliment him on having a fine body, thank Scott for taking great pictures, and move on. Snarky people can go to Fashion Addict Diary.
