I like it better than the typical way of wearing the sweater over the polo.


Blogger ricpic said ... (10:59 AM) : 

The soulful look. Ah youth. Ah lost and forever gone.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 AM) : 

absolutely beautiful, all of him.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:10 AM) : 

An etude in layering! And is it all linen?!

BTW, I know it's hot but there have been a few boys on here forgetting to button themselves correctly.

There are some liberties that must be forgone...even when you're sexy-like, you know?



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:35 AM) : 

i really like the colors - how they are different, but in the same color range, makes it look very harmonious. the green sleeves are a very good bit of color.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:35 AM) : 

very nice


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:11 PM) : 

At first man this man may look a bit sloppy, but this look is likely deliberate because of the seemingly fine materials his clothing pieces are made of.
I like this artful sloppiness, although I do think that the flap on the shorts/pants takes away from an otherwise sleek part of this outfit.


Blogger Kameron said ... (12:14 PM) : 

Does wonders for his skin tone.


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

Parisian Grunge?
I really don't know what to make of this. To me there's a ghostly echo of some of the neatly dressed Parisian guys I saw in Paris when I was there in the late Eighties: Crisply pressed chinos, tailored cotton dress shirts, and, of course, the sweater, draped squarely over the back of the shoulders with the sleeves tied neatly in front...

And here is the post-modern successor, slouching out of the
5th Arrondissement. I have this strong urge to offer him a cup of coffee.


Blogger Felicidad said ... (1:05 PM) : 

Genial this boy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:24 PM) : 

very cool


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:25 PM) : 

The guy looks sweet. I like layering clothing too ,but am a bit worried that I´ll spoil the clothes .This guy has succeeded well and his clothes look clean and neat.The look seems effortless and that´s what layering clothing is all about.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:36 PM) : 

that kinda arabic guy has that deep in his background I mean being well wraped. we can feel windy desert around
layers are never outgoing. sometimes it gives a chance to express much better when put more on. soft fabrics and even softer colours are up-2-date but that is no surprise, exactly why you picked him up and why he looks so delicate and stylish


Blogger Miss at la Playa said ... (1:59 PM) : 

i love when they keep his jersey that way


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:02 PM) : 

I've had this in my head all morning, I really want to know where he got each item. Relaxed and well put together.


Blogger Berkelycole said ... (2:27 PM) : 

loose the cargo, but sign me up


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:43 PM) : 

Oh, cheer up mate! :D


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:22 PM) : 

this is the quintessential example of european men's effortless perfection style. gorgeous! absolutely perfect.


Blogger Secret Agent said ... (4:29 PM) : 

It looks so casually thrown together, but yet so neatly put on. This is the epitome of looking good but feeling comfortable...(unless he's not comfortable) haha. Nice post.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:37 PM) : 

i love it! he owns his look, and it looks so effortless. what a handsome devil, indeed


Blogger iopine said ... (4:38 PM) : 

Rumpled, tonal perfection


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (4:39 PM) : 

I'd copy everything EXCEPT for the sweater.
Nice shot though.

Would love to go to Paris...this summer!


Anonymous Rayanne Graff said ... (4:53 PM) : 

This young man interestingly manages to tie a sweater around his neck without looking in the least bit preppy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:01 PM) : 

I wanna marry him =)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:41 PM) : 

Nice. Was this same type of angled sweater wrap featured before on your site?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:33 PM) : 

i hope it's still somewhat cool... i'd be sweating with three shirts.

cool summer? no pun intended.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:01 PM) : 

What a beautiful young man! So soulful. I love his creative unkemptness. This whole look works for me, because it looks completely effortless, is actually completely and totally functional AND works so beautifully stylistically. Love it to pieces! (pun intended). xoxo, as always, lady


Blogger PAULO said ... (7:16 PM) : 

I really love the muted pallete and the whole ease of his look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:17 PM) : 

This is beautiful. I love the dreamy expression on his face. This is really dressing to suit one's personality. Even though I'm female I'll definitely be taking inspiration from this look. I love layering and where I live (four seasons in one day) it's necessary. Thank you Mr Sartorialist


Blogger jonnieboy said ... (9:19 PM) : 

yay first comment

this guy looks so worn down...pants look nice though


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:37 PM) : 

another looks-like-I-don't-care-or-comb-my-hair-but-still-makes-me-look-cool guy. i am such a fan.

i love him and i love his layers. casual without being sloppy. tricky. well done.

and a great photo too.


Blogger George said ... (9:48 PM) : 

I love this, but not practical for truly hot locales like say Florida unfortunately. :(


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

relaxed and fabulous. love the layers and the messy hair. my favorite post of the summer.


Blogger Anet said ... (10:59 PM) : 



Anonymous Anne said ... (11:18 PM) : 

Oh boy! Me first to say this is really nice! Wow!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:35 PM) : 

i love it! this is an example worthy of emulation. although, i can't help but hear my mother's voice in the back of my head saying, "it's summer! aren't you hot with all those layers?"


Blogger Aretha said ... (11:49 PM) : 

So simple but it works


Blogger Aretha said ... (11:50 PM) : 

So simple but it works


Blogger upupandaway said ... (11:54 PM) : 

He is wearing so much, but makes it look like so little... who is this wonder man?
Love the colours. ( and the Canadian spelling of it) :)


Blogger jacobush said ... (1:09 AM) : 

i absolutely love this!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:06 AM) : 

Perfect! I love everything about this - the muted natural colours, the crumpled shirt, the jumper thrown around his shoulders, his hair, his 5 o'clock shadow, his expression.


Blogger Three Repute said ... (2:54 AM) : 

i love this.


Blogger daniqueconijn said ... (3:34 AM) : 

so so pretty!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:51 AM) : 

That look is just perfect - but only if you bring the »just fell out of bed«-look to the table and call constantly pull off that »I really don’t care«-face.
Very impressive though ... too bad I find myself lacking in both prerequisites.


Blogger Anthony said ... (3:52 AM) : 

Damn him and his sauve ease at pulling this look together...

Im jealous!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:20 AM) : 

Wow! that's what I call great layering. I love the shirts and the trouser combination. The sweater on top is maybe a bit too much (for summer days) but I can imagine it being perfect for spring or warm fall days. Great pic Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:00 AM) : 

One of the chicest examples of men's style.


Blogger Belinda said ... (6:14 AM) : 

L'artiste personified!

Handsome, effortless, beautiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:15 AM) : 

I'm not quite sure but doesn't the sweater, used as some kind of scarf, like too artsy? This works as a pose but I'm afraid it's not suited to daily use


Blogger Titilate said ... (6:59 AM) : 

Too cool, this scarf, too cool.


Anonymous The Fashion Informer said ... (7:00 AM) : 

I think I love his world-weary expression as much as the layering (which is great).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:19 AM) : 

Bravo! the contrast of texture, warm tones in skinclothes vs the cool shadows/background - this is very Cezanne - almost watercolor like. Then his expression and clothes: inspirational in another way entirely - Your surroundings must agree with you as your recent work is some of the best yet!


Blogger sandman_gr said ... (7:25 AM) : 

It looks too hot for summer! With the current heat waves here in Greece, no one can layer like this...Great style though.


Blogger Butch said ... (7:43 AM) : 

Perfectly done, though the sweater, or its "off the shoulder" placement, strikes me as affected. can't be well dressed unless one follows, to quote Elsie de Wolfe's dictum, the rule of suitability; it's summer, and all that layering just seems rarther...bizarre.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:49 AM) : 





Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:52 AM) : 

altho layering "looks" great... fact is this cool guy must have terrible circulation to be able to wear such layers... he's obviously not fit or he'd swelter... unless this photo was taken in November.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (10:00 AM) : 

I love the muted colours he has chosen. Beautiful. They really suit the softness of the fabric and all those folds and layers.


Anonymous Laguna Beach Trad said ... (10:13 AM) : 

I like it! Very cool. And very French, especially the sweater around the shoulders. It must be a French thing. I always see French tourists with sweaters draped around their shoulders. Yesterday I saw two little French boys, maybe 9 or 10 years old, with sweaters thrown around their shoulders.


Blogger shira said ... (10:31 AM) : 

i'm in love!


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (10:37 AM) : 

Some of you have mentioned that he must be "sweltering" in those layers.
Sometimes there are heat waves AND cold-breaks - this photo was taken when Paris was unusually cool.

This weekend had dinner on the beach at 5:30 pm and it was cool enough to wear a sweater or sweatshirt (and scarf!) but by the time I got back to the city (8:30pm) it was very warm and humid - weather changes so think it is interesting to show how people layer for cool weather in warm months.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:08 PM) : 

he looks very laid back but very chic :) all the more endearing...

oh, and he has a striking resemblance to steve carell!

the sartorialist should visit the philippines! a lot of very fashionable people too. but then again, there's bound to be in almost all countries. cheers to your work!


Blogger Ms. D said ... (12:45 PM) : 

Nothing this meticulously coordinated could fairly be referred to as "sloppy." The colors, the carefully orchestrated sweater placement, and half-tucked under-layer are all so fabulous that I don't quite know what to do with myself.

He is as easy and breezy as a "covergirl" and sooo adorable in that trying to look messy to the untrained eye, but those who "get it" will totally catch on--sort of way.

I officially am experiencing my first crush since 5th grade!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:39 PM) : 

Those fabrics are great. Where can someone buy clothes like this in the states?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:30 PM) : 

yum...can i just climb into those eyes!


Blogger N.O. said ... (7:28 PM) : 

This is up there with one of the best things I've seen on here to date. Brilliant.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:32 PM) : 

Male beauty.

He has a timeless quality: the pirate/sailor/poet who needs no luggage.

Inspiring mood, nice picture.


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (7:54 PM) : 

Shabby chic at its best!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:21 AM) : 

very, very sexy.


Blogger arniedelusong said ... (5:59 AM) : 

a study in effortless and natural personal style. nothing studied or artificial about this look. he looks great!

Anonymous Erasmo said ... (7:11 AM) : 

Very good choice with that strange weather in the last days. Looks fantastic to him. Very boheme. Bravo.


Anonymous Jules said ... (8:13 AM) : 

My god he looks gorgeous. And he's not my type. Very dumb question, but is that a really expensive outfit made to look 'just thrown on' - or has he just got amazing style?


Blogger Meg said ... (4:08 AM) : 

Man he is effortlessly cool. Love the pic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:49 PM) : 

Beautiful face. Once again an original and effortless style. That is what I like to see in your shots.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:00 AM) : 

Ah the French! It's that artfully dishevelled, effortless chic that the French achieve with such perfection. Vive La France!


Blogger Basco5 said ... (3:47 PM) : 

Oh that is just so beautiful, love the pastashio against the light hazel in the shirt.


Blogger Shayela said ... (9:46 PM) : 

I generally shy away from neutral tones. But this combination along with his skin tone and its contrast with his dark hair and the whole effortlessly tousled look...sweet.
