What? No. Absolutely not.


Blogger winst said ... (9:33 AM) : 

I think he pulls off the cardigan quite well. Those clunkers on his feet however... not sure how I feel about them aesthetically.

Then again, the outfit is obviously well thought-out and the glasses do bring it all together, clunkers included, without which maybe it would all just look out of place.


Blogger Rice and Beans Vintage said ... (9:46 AM) : 

Wonderful photo, it looks like a faux background! I love the outfitt, it is so unexpected!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:50 AM) : 

arr this reminds me of a movie, but i cant remember what one :D i love his cardigan, and his hair. one of a kind'


Blogger The Spicers said ... (10:02 AM) : 

Very original, and he looks completely at ease.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:13 AM) : 

He looks like he just got out of bed, oversized, dingy-looking v-neck shirt and everything. The sequined cardigan looks awkward to me...


Blogger materfamilias said ... (10:20 AM) : 

someone's having fun--love the curls!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:26 AM) : 

Outfit is hot...especially since it contrasts so greatly with the environment! BUT THE HAIR!!! YIKES!!! Is he trying to look like a gay muppet?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:29 AM) : 

I just love those Berhard Willhelm shoes! Wicked!


Blogger jasmine said ... (10:33 AM) : 

lovely photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:36 AM) : 

let's face it Sart: you are suffering from a bad case of Stockholm syndrome. anything even mildly off-kilter you find out there looks like solid gold fashion genius to you. the brokeback mountain guys. the hippie girl. the whatever sequin weirdo. okay, we get the point, Sweden is quirky, but please change destination soon. maybe Mozambique? thank you, have a great time.



Blogger Habitually Chic said ... (10:43 AM) : 

Not sure how I feel about this. I thought he was a girl at first.


Blogger Laurita:Editha said ... (10:45 AM) : 

what the hell...?!
men+fahsion= YES
but this guy...


Blogger PRGirlLondon said ... (10:57 AM) : 

My goodness the swede's are defo. my favourite...yum


Blogger brandeelovin said ... (11:04 AM) : 

i want that cardigan


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:06 AM) : 

Straight out of bed, young man?....and the only cardigan he could find was his grandmas'. Funny!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:27 AM) : 

LOVE IT! saw him in the crowd of a fashion show and i fell in love with the cardigan...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:34 AM) : 

Original? A great majority of guys in Stockholm look like this.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (11:34 AM) : 


keep your pants on - I will soon be in NYC, Milan, Paris and possibly London and later in the year, China

New York in August is very unenjoyable place - very hot and humid so this Stockholm break was a nice break before the big European tour.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:27 PM) : 

Hey, Mr. Sartorialist:

I've really been enjoying your Stockholm pictures. This guy looks great as well. He's got that sullen young Dylan look, updated to a new century.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:27 PM) : 

Cute and effortlessly cool. It's interesting that although he's wearing a glittery sweater, it doesn't stand out as being outrageous on him. All that really stands out is his cool, slouchy attitude and attire.


Blogger The Vintagent said ... (12:38 PM) : 

ciafrommilan, take your pants off!
That kid is cute! If my daughter wanted to date him, I'd say yep... love his quirky style. Not for me nowadays, but I've got at least 20 years on him... but once wore clothing which emphasized odd scales and textures too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:10 PM) : 

Boy George redux?



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:15 PM) : 

Sart, I live in Sweden, but when I come to STHLM I never seem to spot those quirky guys you see :-)

Anyway, my first thought was that he's got to be a dancer! The shoes, his legs, well, just about everything!


Blogger Oana Perca said ... (2:08 PM) : 

He looks like he just stepped down from a runway, where his would look great. But on the street? I'm not so sure this works.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:31 PM) : 

This look could easily be too much. And I know some people do in fact think it's too much. But the subtlety of the color palette really makes this look for me. From the color of his hair to the silver cardy to the white vest atop black pants & accessories, it's goes 'out there' but never oversteps the bounds of good taste. The shape isn't for everyone, but he pulls it off because you can tell he's having fun.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:48 PM) : 

Sexy legs! But that is all.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:55 PM) : 

Why not?

-- desertwind

PS -- Look at the calves on this kid! Definetly a classical ballet dancer.


Blogger Butch said ... (3:52 PM) : 

This is wonderful in every way...audacious in the best sense and yet strangely but effectively right and lived-in.

This guy understands that it's all about playing disparate elements off one one another.



Blogger Kara said ... (3:53 PM) : 

He's certainly experimenting. I don't know how much it's a finished "successful" look in my book, but it's inventive.


Blogger Butch said ... (4:06 PM) : 

Looks like a "gay Muppet," Edofnyc? Putting aside that this might be a redundant characterization--what's wrong-er with looking that way than looking like a straight Muppet?
(Actually, Moppets, like angels, have no sex...)

And Anon 10:36, the "brokeback mountain guys"? Your code phrase for gay guys dressing Western: what's the problem with that?

Not trying to be the PC police, but....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:26 PM) : 

I can´t believe people leave (trying to insult) comments about sexual orientation based in a physical characteristic:

(I am really upset, especially being a muppet myself)


Blogger Style Salvage Steve said ... (4:38 PM) : 

I absolutely adore the cardigan. I agree with winst about the dubious aethetics of the 'shoes' combined with the rest out of the outfit. All in all i love the top half.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:07 PM) : 

We sure are welldressed here in Sweden.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:21 PM) : 

Humm.....I am not sure about this shot...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:53 PM) : 

I love it. What a smile it put on my face. It takes me back to my youth in the East Village circa 1980 when I would wear black mini-dresses with a back down to THERE and men's black combat boots. Rock on. And the background is just killer. What an eye you have!


Blogger Laurence John said ... (6:01 PM) : 

brilliant photograph.

terrible clothes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:04 PM) : 

Dear god. This is the last straw. I'm moving to Stockholm.


Blogger Orchid & Wasp said ... (6:47 PM) : 

Very refreshing to see him after the overwhelming neatness of the Stock-hommes up until this point!


Blogger DeepBlueSea said ... (9:06 PM) : 


Surely we all remember Luc Besson’s great film Subway from 1985, with Christopher Lambert as Fred. This is Fred’s son...

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:38 PM) : 

nice - reminds me of both patrick wolf and hedi slimane, but i'm not so sure about those shoes with that outfit.


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

This reminds me of what I think was the best look from Men's Fashion Week S/S 08: Christopher Bailey's gold-sequined jacket for Burberry Prorsum.
Pure style.


Blogger Claris said ... (1:13 AM) : 

Ooh...China. Can't wait to see your girls on bikes--sans helmet--pictures.


Blogger Pistachio Of Liberty said ... (1:16 AM) : 

I? Am in LOVE! Lovelovelove.

Agree though that the shoe part could be better; like between the ankle and the sock is less than perfectly scaled/balanced.

Still, I wouldn't kick him outta bed for eating Rykrisp.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:28 AM) : 

Muppets have no sex?? Seems no one has told poor Miss Piggy (she of the female gender, I believe)!

Is a reference to Brokeback Mountain necessarily homonegatative?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:10 AM) : 

i don't think this works very well.
i don't mind the idea of a sequined cardigan...but i think it's the pattern that makes it look cheap....compared to say the Burberry sequined knits that were out a season or two ago.
or maybe a neater tshirt would have done the job..?


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

he looks great ... the cardigan makes the outfit - it's pretty glam with the contrast of the plain dingy t-shirt ... pretty effortless. the cardigan is def vintage but harks back to what christopher bailey showed at burberry a few seasons back - love it.


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

Are you for real?

*in Meryl Streep voice channeling Anna Wintour*: "No no, that was not a question".


Blogger brendan bilko said ... (11:13 AM) : 

I believe the movie anonymous was thinking of is weekend at bernies.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:11 PM) : 

It looks to me as an homage to Jeff Buckley... anyone sees this too?


Blogger Laurie said ... (10:12 PM) : 

I agree with the no votes. It does nothing for me.


Blogger erin said ... (8:47 AM) : 

reminds me of the kurt cobain pic of him in a leopard coat.


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

Pushes my thinking past my regular limits. At first glance ridiculous, yet very inspirational. Sart, you lead the way!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:07 PM) : 

Love it for the ugly/beautiful thing. Makes me pine for my misspent '80s youth.


Blogger Charlene said ... (4:07 AM) : 

love it love it love it
i m ALL ABOUT sequins now and to see them on a guy...totaly FRESH!i applaud him!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:06 AM) : 

I'v got exactly the same, bought by my father in Paris during his honeymoon late in the seventies. It's a "Lanvin". Sarto, do you think I can wear it this fall with no matters? Thanks.


Blogger Alice said ... (1:32 PM) : 

the last photo reminds me of a photo of a young boy dressed as a girl from an old editorial in W magazine with Kate Moss


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 PM) : 

This is totally genius. The proportions are all right including the shoes and that bag. I love the fit of the shirt. He made baggy fit his body.

The best part about this outfit is that the gorgeous sequined cardigan is about my fifth favorite aspect.
