(Nikolaus is one of my brothers. He's really thinking things through when it comes to clothes and he gives great advice. To be honest I admire him a bit because he manages to not look like every other boy his age and yet doesn't fall into the ridiculously-trendy-indie-boy-trap. I always think that he'll be able to look back on these pictures in ten years without cringing. And that's the coolest thing, isn't it?)
