Swede in Fried Bean Hutong
This was on the famous Chaodou hutong, which means “fried bean.” Joen has a deep raspy voice and is head of a publishing operation. He is the first guy appearing here whose style I would actually imitate. Milan, Paris, London…Stockholm. Absolutely! Being tall and slim tends not to thwart style, but Swedish men go the extra mile with details like the velvet color, lavender lining and ticket pocket. Socialism and gender equality appears to beget men guys with taste. As it turns out, I am half Swedish myself.
