On the Street.....Gustav, Sodermalm

Comments on "On the Street.....Gustav, Sodermalm"


Blogger J. said ... (8:37 AM) : 

I adore his use of different blues and blacks as well as his subtle punk details. Lovely.


Blogger mette said ... (8:45 AM) : 

He has a very stern look on his face,wonder why. The dark outfit looks good on him,although it has a small feminine touch in it.

Great detail there---


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (8:50 AM) : 

OK, let me admit right off the bat that I am totally biased because I love your model. Combat boots are definitely on my shopping list this fall- waiting for the Gap/Pierre Hardy ones to come out. The proportions are stunning; his frame can wear anything and look hot, I don't know how else to explain a combination of black jeans, no belt (mon dieu!), rolled sleeves in a jacket that is too short, and it is NOT a cropped jacket, and that is probably why the sleeves are rolled in the first place...

Love it, love it, love it. Favorite pieces? the boots and the bag. Jorge from W Palm Beach

love love love the pin


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:54 AM) : 

love that giant safety pin (?) on his jacket. and the cuffed sleeves!


Blogger Alissa Nicolau said ... (9:17 AM) : 

My first thought was - Human League


Blogger Teena Vallerine said ... (9:19 AM) : 

Surely that's a kilt pin not a safety pin. Not sure punk's wore those. Not sharp enough to get through your nose! t.x


Blogger Yanti and Richard said ... (9:40 AM) : 

Aah, the very young can get away with anything! He's obviously not got a bean - there's a reason those sleeves are rolled up - but who cares: a photographer might spot him and change his life (or at least make his day!).


Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (9:49 AM) : 

This photo made me smile, as did the one above it. It's perhaps as much costume as fashion, with a hint of playing dress up thrown in due to his very young look. I like the boots- I like it all; mainly for its' sense of fun and a touch of whimsy. Very nice.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:49 AM) : 

my first thought was: beautiful, but why so severe? would it have killed him to smile a little -especially given the playful, giant pin


Blogger m said ... (9:56 AM) : 

That bag... That shoes... That pants... That haircut... Is perfect.
The photo is a masterpiece, by the way.


Blogger Miguel said ... (10:20 AM) : 

I agree... the pin is a nice touch but what kills me are the boots!!! I love those boots.


Blogger Karmander said ... (10:21 AM) : 

The epitomy of hot. Great haircut, beautiful combination of chiselled features and softness...fierce threads, and the confidence to carry a man-purse. Score!


Blogger Eschate said ... (10:23 AM) : 

His suit and shirt are so blue, his hair is so yellow, and combined with the boots ge makes me think of a Swedish officer circa 1700 (in a good way).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:28 AM) : 

In reply to yariten:
I have no idea wheter this guy is rich or poor, but his sleeves are not rolled up because he couldn't afford a jacket in his size, but because it is very trendy in Stockholm right now. Worn out 50:s, chinos, jackets, shirts. We roll them all up to get that effortless look.


Blogger Cate O'Malley said ... (10:29 AM) : 

The color of the jacket, shirt and tie are great. I love the pushed up sleeves and rolled up trousers with the work boots. He's yummy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:33 AM) : 

OMG - It's like looking in the mirror . . . . (I wish).

Blogger starbahks said ... (10:43 AM) : 

I love how menswear just comes alive through details like this.
He's beautiful :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:51 AM) : 

i thought he was smiling, with his eyes and the way someone shy would. great outfit. love the blazer on him, clean cut, minimalistic. the bag doesn't do it for me but doesn't kill hte look..


Blogger la gata lista said ... (10:55 AM) : 

So Jil Sander. Love the different blues.


Blogger ricola said ... (11:08 AM) : 

Clever use for a dress pin and a perfect example of blue and black mixing. Fantastic bag and interesting choice of foot wear. Cheers you, Gustav.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:47 AM) : 

The colors are great. The shirt and the jacket work together.
The only thing that I would change is the length of the collar on his shirt. I'd go with a shorter collar to better fit with the thin necktie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:05 PM) : 

Nice purse!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:22 PM) : 

The proportion of this outfit is simply perfect, and the balance of the blue on black makes it all the more stunning.

But that's what you'd expect from a style king such as Gustav Broström. He's a writer for the Swedish fashion blog ModeMan (


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:44 PM) : 

he is very beautiful


Blogger Observer said ... (1:21 PM) : 

Congratulations Sartorialist for starting to get out of the usual US-UK-France-Italy circuits!

There is so much to see and so many interesting people dressing up all over the world. People and styles in places like Antwerp, Copenhaguen, Istanbul, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, Barcelona -just to mention a few- are not to be missed.

Hope you continue with this most welcomed international expansion. I was missing that in your site!


Blogger norawoah said ... (1:42 PM) : 

He kinda took Miami Vice and put it through a Stockholm filter. Still, I love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:20 PM) : 

Miaam les p'tits suédois..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:17 PM) : 

THAT'S IT! I'm moving to Sweden!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:47 PM) : 

Sartorialist....I love the picture you presented. I wake up in the morning with hot coco (I'm not a coffee drinker..) and wondering to know what todays pics of fabulous street fashion you got...


Blogger Ann (MobayDP) said ... (4:15 PM) : 

I have to admit that I am not a fan of anyone named Gustav right now as there's a Hurricane Gustav in the Caribbean coming a bit too close for comfort to Jamaica.

Hmm...those sleeves and the pin are very interesting.

Most of all though I love his hair.It's so shiny and clean looking. And the colour!


Blogger Michael J Murphy said ... (5:10 PM) : 

Superb style...I love the way the tone-on-tone colors enhance the silhouette.


Blogger londondog said ... (5:42 PM) : 

Nice jacket, love the trouser length and the boots. Also, I really like a man with a bag - gentlemen, bags are good ;-)


Blogger Landis said ... (6:58 PM) : 

now this,
THIS is a wandering hero.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:26 PM) : 

the BLESS pin is an excellent detail


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:00 PM) : 

Like someone else mentioned, congrats on finally expanding your fashion-searching scope outside of the cliché NYC-London-Paris-Milan. Though they are all certainly very fashionable cities, you've yet to discover the fashion gems that are Mexico City, São Paulo, and Reykjavík.

Swedes have fantastic, seemingly innate fashion know-how and always manage to look effortlessly cool. This bloke is no exception, of course. Love the colours. He looks chic enough to go to the office, but the giant safety pin and cuffed sleeves add a nice touch of whimsy to an otherwise serious look.

Keep up the nice work !

Blogger Dahiyaht said ... (11:00 PM) : 

so simple yet a head turner.


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

That pin and boots are really nice touches! It's like he's trying to put a little punk into his otherwise super-serious outfit... I love it! :D


Blogger Cassaundra said ... (1:44 AM) : 

nothing like a fitted blue jacket to save the day *love the pin.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:50 AM) : 

It looks like he just walked right off the runway. . . in a stylish, uncontrived way of course.



Blogger Unknown said ... (5:23 AM) : 

Great combination of blues and black, and lovely bag. His dark attire combines perfectly with his blond hair...welldone!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:59 AM) : 

i need to get me one of those pins! been looking for over a year for oversize pin for my singlets but jsut cant seem to find any... anyone got any ideas?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:39 AM) : 

Griffin: Bottom of page:

Great look over all. I never seem to get the courage to wear my sleeves rolled up like that. And isn't that Gustav Broström from ? He does have a great sense of style most of the time.


Blogger Ventayol said ... (8:27 AM) : 

Oh my god, that boy is absolutely fantastic, he seems like he had been modeling on the catwalk a minute ago.
Perfect outfit and attitude!
Congratulations for your page!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:33 AM) : 

this man, in this outfit, with that hair (which I should mention I usually really hate), intrigues me... in a good way.


Blogger Olviya said ... (11:34 AM) : 

i love males bags!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:07 PM) : 

Nice boy, but why the buttoning of the jacket is on "the wrong side", the female side?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:49 PM) : 

probably my favorite image you've posted here in a long time.

No better - and no worse - than all the other vaguely Lanvin-filtered-by-Acne-Jeans outfits that so many young men on Södermalm seem to favor at the moment. It's a clone phenomenon, really. Thus not very inspiring, to my eyes.


Blogger Joseph Rudi Pielichaty said ... (3:39 PM) : 

That bag... that beautiful bag! Stunning stuff!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:30 AM) : 

The male version of Anna Wintor ordernary boys in Sweeden just put on clothes and look great we dont spend hours trying to get it this perfect as Gus has obviously spent hours contemplating the pin and bag more FV than style,at least Sart you are making it North.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:43 PM) : 

Punk's not dead / I know it's not!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:53 AM) : 

I like the look. I would, however, love to have seen more color. Maby a pocket square? A flower in the lapel? A bracelet? Let the excentric out! The safety pin is a cool detail though.


Blogger Rich said ... (4:52 AM) : 

Sart! This one is heaven. Love it all!


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:48 PM) : 

gustav rocks!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:58 PM) : 

Beautiful combination of blue and black. The combat boots, safety pin, and black bag with metallic hardware gives it just the right amount of edginess.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:25 AM) : 

....met him last week...he is simply the best dressed man here in stockholm.


Blogger Harlen said ... (8:05 PM) : 

i think this outfit is perfect. no, it does not need any punches of color. the layering of two different blues, the precise sharpness of his collar, the black tie *tucked* into his jeans, the dashing black bag, the subtle but obvious pin, and of course, his devastatingly bold selection of footwear.


Blogger milenkos said ... (11:40 PM) : 

very graphic in its colors, yet the dark tones veil the blue-black layering, thus the whole is rich in color yet consistent. It's great!


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:20 AM) : 

This could be the start of a film.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:08 AM) : 

love this man, the pin is obviously his person mark to the outfit.
