On the Street..... Ostermalm, Stockholm

Bold, Graphic & Classic - that is a good mix

Good, reliable, Sloane Ranger look.

Could be London.

Nothing wrong with that.

Classic and tasteful without trying too hard to be hip or attract attention.

Good job.

What a swedish face!

Great style.


Blogger Nameless4Now said ... (8:00 AM) : 

Looks like you came at the right time of year - it's not so cold that everyone's too rugged up, and not so hot that they're nearly naked...

What a nice classic yet modern look this guy has. The colour of his vest, against the red-white checked shirt and the dark jacket and pants. Really nice hair too!

PS Ostermalm is a bit right-wing,and you've captured that with the 'right-turn-only' street signs behind him. ;o)

nice man...

Good color eye....

I love the fact that many of the Swedish people actually dresses like this, and that makes me proud. Love the colors!


Anonymous Nilla said ... (8:42 AM) : 

right, so this has Östermalm written all over it.. and I really don't like it

but maybe I'm the only one?


Blogger Valerie said ... (9:41 AM) : 

This is my most favorite look ever on young men - a pair of great fitting blue jeans, a shirt underneath a V-Neck pullover and a that kind of Barbour quilted jacket the guy is wearing. Just wow at him having such a classic, elegant and fitting style.

A little too Happy Days for me...


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (10:28 AM) : 

Perfect mix!


Anonymous Josefin said ... (11:44 AM) : 

Nice photo - I think the signs make this photograph! The lines they create, their skew positions and their colors lifts the impression of the guys appearance - clever.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:07 PM) : 

Love the colour combinations. So fresh and springlike.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:10 PM) : 

This guy looks great! I love the unexpected combo of the red checked shirt with the pale green sweater. And while I ordinarily think collars up look affected, it looks okay here. He looks squeaky clean, but not uptight.


Blogger siongc said ... (12:35 PM) : 

Wonderfully done! Beautiful combination, and the hair just completes his look!


Anonymous Aleksander said ... (1:17 PM) : 

A pretty ordinary outfit for the "overclass" in Stockholm but still very handsome!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:17 PM) : 

That sweater hue is so Scandinavian.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:29 PM) : 

hah this man ooses swedish style and appereance. how neet


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:15 PM) : 

There's something very Swedish about this style.....don't know what but very fresh and loving it!!!


Blogger Kristin said ... (4:31 PM) : 

And he is SO swedish! But the swedish do have great style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:35 PM) : 

where's the bold part you're talking about? the arrangement of the photo with the duplicated set of traffic signs is far more bold than the outfit.


Blogger kugaloo said ... (5:48 PM) : 

Love this site and made it my home page as many here also attest. I've been to Stockholm a few times and have always been impressed by their sense of hip, albiet classy and seemingly tailored style. The Swedes to me seem able to translate any current global fashion trend into something their own, giving it a timeless quality. I think the tall and blond thing doesn't hurt also. Hej då!


Blogger f&art said ... (6:01 PM) : 

Oh wow. I love swedish guys ♥


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:54 PM) : 

Love the combination! And love the pose!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:54 PM) : 

Great outfit!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:14 PM) : 

nice! i like his jacket, what is it?


Anonymous janejane said ... (7:37 PM) : 

love red and green together, especially contrasted with black. he did it very well, with the true red in the shirt and the mint green in the sweater, so it isn't too christmas-y. also, great hair, short but still showing off those curls! overall, not too contrived, yet not to that sloppy point of nonchalance.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:37 PM) : 

Skuggan asså


Anonymous gregory_fb said ... (9:24 PM) : 

He is an extremely handsome young man wearing a fantastic outfit, so well put together.

But what is truly beautiful is how the triangular signs surrounding him echo the shape of his face and aspecs of his wardrobe, like his open collar and the deep-ish v of his v-nck sweater. This is a great photograph.


Anonymous pat_bright said ... (10:29 PM) : 

I absolutely love it.
So much care and attention put into it, yet it looks effortlessly cool and classic.

Each piece would be brilliant alone, yet when they come together, it is an explosion of beauty!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:54 PM) : 

wow... he's really cute. and well put together.


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (11:20 PM) : 

That is great combination of Spring colors. I also love the raised jacket collar for that extra hip look. Preppy chic at its best.


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (11:20 PM) : 

P/S> Love the street signs in the background.


Anonymous heartclothes said ... (11:57 PM) : 

I love it!! So unexpected and comes off so fresh. Perfect entre to the brightness of spring paired with the dark jacket. Good eye Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:16 AM) : 

That picture makes Sweden look so bright, colorful and and beautiful. Do they take immigrants?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:03 AM) : 

You really captured the difference in the way people dress in Stockholm depending on where we live. Interesting to see from a "tourists" eye.
This guy is sooo Ostermalm.
/ a Sodermalm lady


Anonymous Star witness said ... (4:15 AM) : 

Is that a quilted jacket? I have serious problems accepting those jackets other than on stable workers, old ladies and maybe old men - but the men have to be british or italian to get away with it. To wear a quilted jacket in downtown stockholm is just a lame upperclass statement. And he seems to be just that type of guy. I can't deny his good looks though, and I like the shirt. Also he pulls off the combination of colors well.


Blogger sandman_gr said ... (5:35 AM) : 

Perfect outfit and perfect guy..... I MUST visit Stockholm pronto!


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

hi sart - you've described the look as 'graphic'... & managed to frame the photo with the ultimate graphic - road signs. you've done it again.


Anonymous Kråkan said ... (8:52 AM) : 

Hm, in stureplan/östermalm, this is so ordinary that i'm getting tired in the eyes just by looking at the picture. It's like that scene in the second matrix movie with all the Agent Smith clones, in stockholm you have 200 of this guy around you all the time and that's pretty annoying after a while.

A lot of swedes has a great sense of fashion though, but you find most of them in Södermalm/SoFo.

By the way, hope you had a great time in stockholm and you're welcome back!


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:07 AM) : 

for Krakan
if this look is ordinary in Stockholm then you are lucky

I have gotten a lot of comments that I read as reverse "classism" or if you look like you have some money and dress in a refined manner then you cannot be stylish

I think this is just as stupid and bad as people that look down on others because they do not wear designer labels.

Style is not a win/lose game the Ostermalm doesn't have to be better or worse than Sodermalm it can just be different and be fine for that

stop being a snob maybe you will learn something from others that will make a positive difference in your style - Sodermalm is good but not the the only game in town.


Blogger elizabeth said ... (11:41 AM) : 

I do adore the red checks with the pale green. But I think what I really love is how the figure is positioned between the yellow triangles and identical road signs. So terrific!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:02 PM) : 

I am italian girl, and going to Sweden this summer. If swedish guys look like this it will be a joy!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:34 PM) : 

Hot pose, perfect fit, lovely colors, and of course, ditto on the gorgeous composition of the overall photo.

I sympathize with the "reverse" classism or whatever it is we're hearing on this thread. I sometimes get a pain in my stomach when I see too many up town NYC pictures, b/c some of them seem to try and purchase style or brand themselves into style. I also don't like to be reminded of class differences so visibly...

At the same time, great style is great style, regardless of class markings in the look or the absence thereof.


Anonymous Heather said ... (6:15 PM) : 

Ooh, so fresh and old school at once. He has an American clone who dressed precisely the same way and went to Harvard.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:03 PM) : 

This is, by far, one of my favourite recent shots.

He looks perfect. Well, he is pretty hot, and I think he knows that too.


Blogger Tim said ... (7:47 PM) : 

Can someone please tell me the name of the Barbour jacket he is wearing?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:04 AM) : 

If it is a Barbour, it is most likely a "Liddesdale".


Blogger Norge said ... (6:09 AM) : 

Snyggt Skuggan! What an honour!

This guys name is,quickly translated from Swedish to English, The Shadow!



Blogger guymsea said ... (7:34 AM) : 

Yes we can say he has style and a certain flair but not a highly individual one. As the first poster remarked "it is a good reliable Sloane Ranger look".


Anonymous John said ... (8:49 AM) : 

Hm, the style is timeless. However, you need to be quite relaxed in it, I believe, not to appear 50-ish. This boy looks a bit stiff to me. My guess is he would rather run around in jeans and t-shirt and thus, that is what he should do..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:21 AM) : 

I love this picture. The way the trafic signs were caught on both sides of the boy. And the way he looks in to the camera, like it was taken so fast he didn't even have time to put both hands fully in the pockets. I like his style.. Very nice; casual-street-elegance..


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

alot of people in Stockholm dress like this, and i think it looks really good. the colors match, and i love the coat. this is very Östermalm, AND I LOVE IT!
good job,


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:39 PM) : 

The awesome colored sweater is from H&M! I know because I got one for my husband!

WOOF! SEXY Tasteful! CHIC! Great colors........ More please!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:41 PM) : 

A substitute teacher in my school was wearing a fine gauge sweater in that same green color today, except his look was hideous-- washed out green plaid and khakis.

That red gingham collar just pops-- how dynamic! Well done.


Blogger Richard said ... (10:52 PM) : 

Two things set this picture apart:

1) He is incredibly handsome

2) The shape of the jacket and the way he is wearing it takes it out of being so literally bourgeoise.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:06 PM) : 

Reminds me a little bit of the movie Grease. But whit a more modern and tasteful style, I think.. He looks nice


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:01 PM) : 

This guy impersonate confidence! He knows he looks good.

I agree. in sthlm there is a refined classwar going on :)- have you seen the movie "cry-baby"? it´s sort of the rascals against the brats. you just have to know that about sthlm, it´s not a snob opinion, its just how it is. :) the recent years it has been melted together a bit, though.

you have to acknowledge that we are a former/still somewhat socialist state.
