The "style" blog for HS (the biggest newspaper around here) is much funnier, as it's a better representation of what one actually sees around here. Less pretentious than Hel-looks.

If I remember correctly, that guy was actually one of the finnish "Fab5" from our version of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. :|

Yeah, it's kinda the anti-Hellooks, with pics of how finnish people usually dress. Which in general means looking very boring indeed. Hel-looks generally does a good job at representing how much better the girls around here dress when compared to the guys, but there are some nice fits from time to time. One of my recent favorites:
Seen this guy walking around downtown pretty often and I'm really liking the way he wears his clothes.

It must be crazy seeing the people on that blog around town. I get the feeling on some of the more experimental or non-traditional fits here on SF that they don't really exist in real life on the street or that they're so rare it'd be like seeing a zebra walking around in public. I take it for granted that I won't see people from here in my day-to-day life nor will I see anyone dress remotely close to it.

But to actually see it in front of your eyes, like the guy you posted above, must be surreal.
