Dunno what a goof is. I like his style and I like Thom Browne. I also think he doesn't look out of place at all in the fashion circles he moves in. Not really uber-weird either.

This. He doesn't even look that eccentric. I don't think that his style is that special, except for his ability to choose accent pieces. If you go to Paris during Fashion week, or even to the much more quotidien market weeks in Barcelona, Pitti Uomo, or NYC, you'll see guys dressed a lot more outlandishly.
The thing is, where you are around fashion all of the time, you tend to get bored easily, and you either fall into wearing a uniform, and seeing the novelty in fashion as more of an intellectual pursuit (Ralph Lauren, Hedi Slimane, Giorgio Armani, all fall into this category,) or you are constantly changing up your look, constantly looking for something that you are not jaded about. I think that Nick belongs in that latter camp. Personally, I like the camo suit picture. I think that that's from Trussardi 1911, which is sort of like a bizarro world Brunello Cucinelli. They both bill themselves as "jetsetter" brands - just a matter of whether you want to pretend you are an Italian Count or a Miami Druglord.
It's more probably a wide-aperture, short-ish telephoto on a full-frame sensor, or a shorter lens on smaller-sensor camera. Look at the shallow depth-of-field and the perspective compression (things in the background are of similar scale to the subject), because the photographer has to stand further away.
I don't think he's a badass, but I like his style because it's not by the rules. Guess thats why people seem to hate or should I say more scared of him and also why people call him "badass"! He's done amazingly compared to most dreamers, I personally don't need to belittle successful people to make myself feel better. Try focusing on your own lives and be yourself, you might find you will be more happy and less envious of others....
