It'd actually be a decent outfit if he'd never read a blog or never adopted prefabricated Italianate affectations.

This dude just looks like he's read too many blogs. He looks like he walked into the Armoury on his first day and was bombarded by every trend and element they've ever gotten on board with. Rather than picking and choosing, he grabbed them all.
His boyish looks make him better suited for a slouchy university look than a "sprezzy" polished look.
+1 to all of the above. Some people can get away with such things and, whilst it can still look dandified and affected, it still suits them.
IMHO, it doesn't suit here, and I think that this man's relatively young age works against him, too.
