If Napoleon Dynamite dropped out of high school, discovered weed and got laid, his hair would probably look a lot like Erik Hassle’s unruly, asymmetrical mop. But, as we learned from Snooki, there’s more to a person than just their problem hair. In the case of Sweden-born, London-based singer-songwriter Hassle, that includes a soulful voice, some infectious pop songs and a personal style that leans toward the messy, tight and possibly unlaundered. In short, he looks how a rockstar should look.
Whether it’s his ever-present leather jacket, his 90’s-era cross earring or his somewhat incongruous tats, Hassle looks refreshingly unpolished, saving the sheen for his music instead. You can also see the influence of London in his Fred Perry polos buttoned to the top. Throw in the occasional cardy and denim jacket, and you’ll find yourself looking past the hair. Take a look at some more photos below.

Fred Perry is one of my favorite labels, a classic British brand that manages to stay fresh with top-notch and interesting collaborations with the likes of Raf Simons and Comme des Garcons. This selvedge edge denim chambray shirt is a perfect example of the innovation that has reinvigorated the brand in recent years. I especially like the small collar. The sleeves are admittedly a bit awkward in length, so I recommend styling it like they do at oki-ni (on the weird unibrowed model they use for everything), by giving it a little cuff that still shows off the selvedge detailing also found on the back yoke and front pocket. Speaking of oki-ni, this shirt is currently on sale there — so if you or someone you love is a size L or XL, jump on it. A few more pics after the jump.
