Too bad this is a statement of style as opposed to a life style...

the bike matches the color of his clothes, the guy is obviously in tune to his appearance, I wish he had a
silver helmet on

Anonymous artofstarving said ... (4:18 PM) : 

Smooth and dapper. With that fixed wheel bike, I must say, that's the classiest looking hipster I've ever seen. I must admit, though, that looks like an awfully uncomfortable outfit in which to ride a bicycle.

Love the look. Love the sunglasses, especially, wish I could get a closer view of them.

Beautiful shot.

Love this photo! reminds me of the 50's...I have an old bike as well and I can't imagine better, than riding along the sreets in a nice dress.


Anonymous Sarah said ... (5:12 PM) : 

Does anyone else feel a little disturbed that although the Sartorialist frequently features pictures of people with bicycles (which is wonderful!), those people are almost never wearing helmets? Head injuries aren't glamourous if you ask me.

Love the blog otherwise!

I would love to see some images of stylish folks riding bikes and also wearing helmets on here. Brain damage is irreversible and horrible to witness, one friend lost is too many friends gone.

Everything about this photo is fabulous. The composition, the depth of field, the taxi, the other pedestrians, the bike, the man on the bike, the man's style...on the bike. Love it all!

Brilliant, classy photo. One of those photos that you just think YES! On a serious note though, lack of helmets on cool bike riders is a problem, but nobody has come up with a bike helmet that looks cool. Any designers out there want to take up the challenge?

If only all men could dress like this. Such poise, I love it!

Refreshing new composition for you! His outfit and ride are tightly controlled, yet your image, off center, balances him out.

Blogger Unknown said ... (11:21 PM) : 

For crying out loud this is a fashion blog not a statement of peoples safety choices or lack of . From smoking to no helmets ,yes we need more stylish helmets but what are you ,these people already have mothers to tell them off for being silly . There was photo of my cousin in here a few weeks ago and he was smoking I could not believe all the judgmental comments .believe me everytime he goes home to his 80 year old mother she tells him off for smoking . So people get over it ! There are greater crimes against fashion out there

He looks utterly unruffled--keeping it cool as he peddles along on a warm day.

(And is it just me, or is helmet scolding just as tiresome as cigarette scolding?)

Great photo and his style is also very nice:)

His bike goes with his outfit! Perfection. :)

i really like dapper men in bikes.


Anonymous Dasher said ... (1:56 AM) : 

@Sarah and Anonymous helmets are not always suitable (i.e. they are designed for a certain style of riding) and can in fact cause certain head and neck injuries. They aren't bad but it should be up to the rider whether or not they wish to wear one. On an upright bicycle like this it is extremely unlikely the rider would hit their head if they were to fall, as say opposed to a racing bike where the rider would go over the handlebars head first. Don't believe the helmet companies and end up like us here in Australia where we have mandatory helmet laws and as a result no cycling culture and a growing obesity problem. Check out the Copenhagen Cycle Chic blog for fabulous photos of how people ride in their normal clothes everyday, sans helmets (note Copenhagen also has far fewer injuries than countries like us that promote helmets).


Anonymous Alex said ... (2:17 AM) : 

That's such a good style! I want something like that for me hehe, like a MOVIE!! ;)

In one word "wow"
awesome shot and style. Urban look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:09 AM) : 

Enough with the helmet requests - just go to Holland or Denmark to see stylish helmetless people in suits on bikes with skulls intact. What makes you safe on a bike is not a helmet, it's lots of other people on bikes. Cyclist numbers plummet whenever mandatory helmet laws are introduced. Go figure. This guy looks totally appropriate for street cycling. And I am loving all the Mad Men hairstyles creeping in everywhere.

Anonymous Ben Y said ... (8:15 AM) : 

Uber cool, and it seems to be the look for gent's hair styles at the moment, thank god we are moving on from the spiky cropped hair a few years ago!
As for a helmet, in Australia, it's almost a law that you must ride with a helmet, and let me tell you, I've seen plenty of hipsters abound with really cool looking helmets. And if you, like me and this gent in the pic sport similar hair, then it doesn't actually get flat like "helmet hair". Believe me, there's enough product in there to keep it that way.

And I am a massive fan of mixing tones in a suit. Yes, you may argue it isn't a "suit" but a blazer and pants but this is such a great look compared to the same colour top to toe(boring). Think double denim but in a "suited" sense. So much more individual and interesting.

Blogger Vava said ... (11:02 AM) : 

Wearing a helmet is by personal choice for adults, and people really need to stop nagging -------- it's just not their business what someone else does in regard to this. Yakkay makes relatively stylish helmets, but they don't fit very well. There is a market out there - and people would buy stylish helmets that fit - so hopefully some resourceful person will take on the challenge!

The guy looks great! Based on the clothing of the others, it must be warm there in NYC?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:25 AM) : 

I am starting to suspect that people in Manhattan are intentionally dressing up and riding bicycles on conspicuous streets in hopes of getting spotted by fashion photographers/boggers like yourself. Once they've been seen, they then go home and put on their comfortable bike-riding clothes and helmets. I'll have to try it myself...

Blogger Marcel Da Chump said ... (9:06 PM) : 

I've been a NYC cyclist for close to forty years; therefore, I feel it's incumbent upon me to weigh-in on the helmet issue. Yes, it's a personal choice, but it affects others when they have to witness the aftermath of a fatal cranial crash. I've seen it and it's gruesome. Ride safely and courteously all.


Anonymous Pooja said ... (9:27 PM) : 

I love this look so much that I'm giving this dude the benefit of the doubt, even though it looks like he totally ripped off of the Mad Men look.

Regarding the helmet debate: Personally, I think a helmet is essential in NYC, regardless of what type of bike you are riding. Many European cities like Amsterdam have bike lanes and very large cycling populations. There is a very diverse cycling culture, there. Riding in NYC can be scary and dangerous, because almost no one cycles--and most of the people who do are "sporty," sweaty, and wearing spandex (gross)!

Love the composition, the colours and the concept. Don't love the man though. Appreciate that he has some sort of style, but it speaks to me in a way that makes me feel uncomfortable. He looks creepy, not someone I would invite to a dinner party. It's like he's trying too hard in his slick suit, but then adds this more interesting quirky bike.
