Rather silly.

Well, he looks very pleased!


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

Ah! That's superfantastik! I love the lime/chartreuse with black. Also the crazy proportions. Reminds me of Bernard Wilhelm somehow...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:40 AM) : 

You know... I actually rather like his use of color. The knit and texture is interesting, too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 AM) : 

Love him

Lets hope the wind doesn't pick up, he might take off!

how hilariously french is his facial expression?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:02 PM) : 

hey this guy was was behind me in the eurostar queue back to london. how funny and there he is again with all his knitwear...

I can't belive it, I'm going to Paris in a month! Where are the best shops, both second hand and other shops? I've heard that Paris is a great partycity, where should I go?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:15 PM) : 

just NO.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:18 PM) : 

i like his use of the fitted hat. not your typical streetwear outfit.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:21 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 PM) : 

Reminds me of my best friend, gay neighbor in his adolescence, discovering he's gay and wanting to wear womens' clothes but hasn't quite figured out how to do it yet. The vest/dress and the red shirt are the feminine cloaked beneath the black vying for equal exposure.

Blogger The Voguette said ... (12:35 PM) : 

OMG. i would really wear this outfit and the fact that it's a he wearing this outfit makes everything even better.


Blogger Odin's Maven said ... (12:51 PM) : 

Hmm. It's like Yazz and the Plastic Population meets Echo and the Bunnymen in their respective pomp. He makes me smile but I won't be told by anyone that that is a good sweater.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:54 PM) : 

Bizzaro Michael Phelps?


Blogger MONI said ... (2:27 PM) : 

such a funky nerdy kid!


Blogger lilalebkuchenherz said ... (2:28 PM) : 

rocks ^^


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (2:29 PM) : 


The cap is sweet, makes him look like a children's book illustration come to life.


Blogger Brian said ... (2:36 PM) : 

He could have saved alot of grandma's yarn if he had told her his size before she started knitting...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:47 PM) : 

This is art (sculpture).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:49 PM) : 

His expression says, "Yeah, I know how I look."

So I won't comment on how I think he looks.


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

His proportions are quite audacious and its awesome.
He has that "i don't care if you like my outfit" attitude.


Blogger alvnkvnn said ... (3:43 PM) : 

i really like this accually. I love the oversized top garments and how they look with the skinny trousers and big boots. It kind of reminds me of Diro Homme but with color.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:43 PM) : 

His oversized sweater and his big, dark coat do more to make his head look smaller. Does not help that he has long arms for being so pencily, either. I'd be pissed, too. But I do appreciate the photo's always expertly shot by our wonderful Sart. He can make questionable dressing look interesting, every time. Thanks.


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

AWESOME love it! definitely makes me smile the proportions rock! as does the jumper:)the hat and scarf with the boots balance each other out. It's nice to see guys playing with fresh colours. Really LOVE IT!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 PM) : 

WHERE can i get that sweater? AMAZINg with the black skinny jeans and lace ups.


Blogger older said ... (4:41 PM) : 

i know what im wearing tomorrow now


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:05 PM) : 

My argument would not be on the knit but on the scarf. I rather like it with the red shirt underneath... and I don't think anyone else but this man could pull off that outfit successfully.


Blogger Matthew Mikulice said ... (5:06 PM) : 

Pretty silly. Not my favorite, but it grows on me...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:30 PM) : 

I get that he's an art student and employing creativity and experimentation to try to express himself as an individual (while of course keeping to the current uniform of skinny jeans and combat boots). And I applaud him for his attempt. But that sweater has absolutely no redeeming qualities. Is it supposed to be ironic?

And he looks like Ugly Betty's nephew with a Hapsburg chin. Is he a Hapsburg?


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

Dang! He looks like a pack of Lifesavers!!! LOL.


Blogger John Danner said ... (5:54 PM) : 

You needs things like this to keep it amusing and fresh—no matter how ridiculous.

I'm glad to see ball caps used (and working), too. I don't know why but I like to see ball caps put together in an interesting way

I just captured this kid recently>>


Blogger niamh said ... (6:01 PM) : 

like the funny vest with the jeans shoes and coat but think the rest is all a bit too much


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:06 PM) : 

Hmmm...I'm not sure I could get behind this look... he needs to heed Chanel and remove something...

I do like the funky knit vest, but not in this combo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:28 PM) : 

Some kinda Nickelodeon cutie


Blogger Mysteree said ... (9:15 PM) : 

all of you guys are retarded. what are all of these RULES of style you people are so obnoxiously making up? this boy is completely enigmatic. funky fresh fo sho. stop being ignorant.

Scott if you happen to read this comment, keep up the great work.


Blogger Crisman said ... (2:23 AM) : 

I love wearing oversized knit with a skinny jean and I'm a boy too. I want this sweater.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:31 AM) : 

I'd never wear this but love seeing someone else in such a crazy outfit!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:08 AM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:25 AM) : 

his jumper is a mazing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:10 AM) : 



Blogger SparkleQueen said ... (10:40 AM) : 

If only I could pull off this look..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:55 AM) : 

Ok, this dude is not French nor is he English. And neither an art-student. He's studying fashion in South-England and is orginally from Norway. That put a side - I like the outfit, minus the scarf.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:33 PM) : 

Like no one ever experimented when they were young??

Maybe he bought the sweater vintage for 3 euros?? And made it his personal statement!!

However, dear friends, if I ever show up with such a sweater, please, remove me from the premises immediately!!


Blogger Lily said ... (6:43 PM) : 

Oh lord. He looks like one of Fagan's orphans.

His look definitely works, though!


Blogger Gillian said ... (7:54 PM) : 

though i do like his sweater, his look kind of screams "i need attention"


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

The scaff is absolutly atroscious. Potentially it could look funky with the sweater and shirt contrasting the rest of the outfit, but the scaff just makes it seemed contrived.
Even without it, the outfit is still arguablly bad and poorly texturised (although I would have to actually see it without the scaff).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:08 PM) : 

My original reaction was that this outfit is like a train wreck -horrid but you just can't look away, but the more I look at it the more I like it. Without the sweater, it would just be another all black/scarf/skinny jeans and a pop of color outfit, but the sweater is just so completely unexpected, so completely granny/little kid-like, so completely uncool, that it's the perfect foil for the hipster look we think he'd be aiming for. Maybe it's supposed to be ironic - anyway it's fascinating.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:00 AM) : 

It would fun to start pulling on a thread end.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:59 AM) : 

Who doesn't love a boy that knits? and oh, how I missed those over-sized boots.

I did not know that Samantha Ronson was in town.


Anonymous colin said ... (6:31 PM) : 

Colour is fine.. most of it makes sense.. the size of the knit is just too big and awkward.


Anonymous KiwiBella said ... (9:52 PM) : 

The red/lime stripe with the red shirt is brilliant! What a shame he kept knitting a little too long and got out the cream wool.

Just the striped sweater without the extra textured cream band would have been wonderful. I would love to unpick the bottom quarter of this sweater and re-knit it the same as the rest. Then you would all love it!


Anonymous BrightTomato said ... (11:05 PM) : 

how deliciously left of centre


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

Is weird to see that vest, its funny, i think i like it :)
