On the Street.......Swede Fonzie, Sodermalm, Stockholm

With that 50's hair, short jacket, white tee, and jeans this young man reminds me of a Swede Fonzie

Fonzie was never as stylish or as beautiful. Cool and sophisticated. And great grooming - almost like a model in a photo shoot.

Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Everything about him is fantastic! He looks great!


Blogger Butch said ... (10:47 AM) : 

OK, fellow posters, this is about the clothes...the clothes...the clothes...

Hmmm--a lot of good that did.

Anyway, I love the sweater over the T; the whole ensemble actually. Now if someone could just tell me how I might jump into the Swedish gene pool for, like, forever....


Blogger JO said ... (11:16 AM) : 


Like Billy Idol, James Dean and the Fonz all wrapped into one...


Blogger Rebecca said ... (11:21 AM) : 

If only I could take that look and transplant in on a few guys here in Canada. I totally love the rockabilly appeal.


Anonymous emma L said ... (11:44 AM) : 

That is just so stylish! Sends shivers down my spine. The clean white t-shirt and the jacket with it's collar up like that. And the hair. Just simply great!


Anonymous Andrea said ... (11:51 AM) : 

Hmm.. good use of shoulder pads. I'd still avoid this him/her person on the street thought, there's something dark about this guy/girl.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (11:58 AM) : 

That's a great ensemble. I don't know why but my eye is drawn to the grey - beautiful, clean and simple. Very sculpted overall.


Blogger F.A. said ... (12:04 PM) : 

His hair is like a male's answer to Amy Winehouse hair......

That's it! 50's hair should be de rigeur for all the hipsters from now on.


Blogger Nameless4Now said ... (12:28 PM) : 

Or is he more the Marlon Brando type, ie Rebel without a cause?
For me the cardigan is what makes the look. A bit unexpected...


Blogger Rafe Totengco said ... (12:36 PM) : 

great looking drag king!


Blogger daniqueconijn said ... (12:45 PM) : 

i think it's a combination of zack morris (saved by the bell) and david bowie..
he's pretty


Blogger dav said ... (1:37 PM) : 

a simple look, words well. But i wonder would this look good on a non-ridiculously good looking person

I thought it was Brigitte Nielsen!


Blogger Gudl said ... (2:06 PM) : 

James Dean comes to mind.


Anonymous the Fashion Informer said ... (2:11 PM) : 

Not 100 percent convinced this is a he, but the look rocks regardless.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:19 PM) : 

He's like a Swede Fonzie crossed with Simon LeBon! Heeeeeeeeeeey. I like it.


Blogger Claire said ... (2:20 PM) : 

Der Swonzie


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:28 PM) : 

Looking like Fonzie is not a good thing.


Blogger Lucy said ... (2:58 PM) : 

ooh la la!


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

I love the color of his skin. Great shot. His androgynous look is very powerful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:03 PM) : 

love the cardi over tank, don't like the big shoulders on the jacket or the dreary color pallete. but haven't we all seen a black jacket with grey and white and jeans a million times before, and better? i know i have.

All I can say is (elbows bent, two thumbs up): Aaaayyyy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:33 PM) : 

How the hell can people comment about this guy being a female? That is the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard - HE is clearly a GUY! It always surprises me that when people can't find fault with the outfit they have to criticise the persons looks - probably due to jealousy & the fact that HE'S an extremely attractive guy. The overall look is very simple, very european & his hair totally brings it all together & makes it interesting.

Also, I understand that this is an American website but it is heavily read by Europeans & obviously fetaures many Europeans ... The word 'hipster' doesn't exist in Europe - why do we have to categorize a person? why can't someone just dress how they like without being tagged? especially with such a stupid word ... a word with such little meaning ...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:50 PM) : 

Where's the jacket from?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:52 PM) : 

Where's Ralph Malph!?

Nahh, sorry Scott - like Fonzie - this guy has, in my books, 'jumped the shark...'


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 PM) : 

pretty. love the vest. he makes me think of billy idol for some reason.

Very "Boys Don't Cry"


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:42 PM) : 

Without the scoop neck t-shirt, he would look a lot more manly. It gives him a long narrow neck.


Blogger qian said ... (10:28 PM) : 

Just discovered this place and I luv it!


Blogger siongc said ... (10:35 PM) : 

There's something about him that brings to mind Stepford wives, or husbands I guess... Regardless, beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:35 PM) : 

If Marie Fredriksson were ever to marry Morten Harket back in the 80's I bet that's what their child would look like. No guessing on the gender, though... Not my definition of cool, to be honest.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:47 PM) : 

come to asia.


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (11:15 PM) : 

Actually, he looks more like a James Dean because of the skin tone. And totally cool.


Blogger gila said ... (11:21 PM) : 

i'm with andrea


Blogger underneath said ... (3:16 AM) : 

Strong face - really authentic. Stunning!


Blogger Nameless4Now said ... (3:17 AM) : 

*Thud* as my blogosphere cred hits rock bottom...
I meant James Dean, not Marlon Brando. Grrr.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:35 AM) : 

or Matt BROS.


Anonymous janejane said ... (4:22 AM) : 

This is stunning. The sharp, elevated shoulders make a strong V shape with the deep neckline of the cardigan and frame his effeminate face. I love the sweater- particularly because it is such a thin knit, and because it is tight over the bulge (or lack thereof) of his abdomen. That, paired with his piercing gaze, is quite sexy. Also, the contrast of his very masculine jacket and edgy hair with his delicate features creates a sort of intrigue about him. On a more minor note, the t-shirt is crisp and white and has the perfect neckline. He is a wonder.


Blogger Liz said ... (4:48 AM) : 

Beautiful photo Sart. As another mentioned, it is the cardigan that really makes the fashion and the composition. The softness of the grey and the fabric is the prefect twist against the hard shine of everything else.


Blogger Honeybee said ... (5:12 AM) : 

Morten Harket ten years ago. Even the lookalike makes my knees weak after all this time.


Anonymous r.filgueira said ... (6:02 AM) : 

James Dean look

that hair! woot!

all i can say is 'wow'!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 PM) : 

IDK...but his look resembles storm from x-men slightly...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:38 AM) : 

to me, he reminds me of early Johnny Hallyday.

this is a man who just LOOKS like he has it all,
great photo, great style, fantastic presence


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:44 AM) : 

love the cardi with the white shirt. goes well with his olive skin.

OMG! This is Jay Manuel's twin living in the parallel universe known as Sweden!
Love the clothes, HATE the pose!

It's 1986 all over again. Hello, Morten Harket...

Blogger La Purpura said ... (11:28 AM) : 

I hope not to sound too awful but I like men who wear their clothes and have enough character to make the clothes look a natural part of them. When someone gives me an impression of a premeditated hanger, it is totally unstylish and unsexy in my opinion.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:09 AM) : 

I'm french and i love this blog
the picture is for me beautiful
i lovefashion, clothes, models

Thanks for this blog who is great


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:43 AM) : 

I know who this guy is, its a brilliant shot. You look great M =)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:05 AM) : 

SO typical Swedish. All the Swedish (well actually Scandinavian in general)guys at my school(internationalschoolsomewhereineurope) dress like that. Everything tight and trying to wear they hair somehow unique/different/special.
But yeah i like this look, it reminds me of Grease.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:47 PM) : 

I love seeing the same outfit on someone else half way around the world. Great Sats think alike I guess? I personally have an outfit exactly like this one. However, I opted for a white vneck graphic tee under my grey cardigan, topped it off with the same jacket (H&M Fall 05). Plenty of people have complimented my sense of style, often assuming I am from England?? I have never been to England or Europe for that matter, so I am puzzled as to why they assume that of me. I live in Ottawa, ON Canada. I agree with Anon 5:33, North Americans often try to pigeon hole a specific look with a name or a place of origin. Yes, I speak with an accent (because I speak 4 languages) and I also have an androgynous face/hair...but I dont think this is why they try to lable me. I guess being "branded" here in North America literally means LABELING others??
