On the Street…Lino’s Mad Plaid, Florence



When I started The Sartorialist it was to capture little images like this that would inspire the way I wanted to dress.

I know Lino is on the blog a lot but I think he really deserves it.

Meant for Movement, NYC



This is one of those looks that seems meant to be seen while moving.

She naturally walks with her arms tucked-in like that – I think it looks so graceful.

Since We Were Talking About Men in Skirts…



seems the idea of men in skirts is now acceptable but questions remain.
-cultural appropriation
-how the gentleman’s legs look in the skirt
-what shoes to wear?
-(I can’t believe I’m asking this but) above or below the knee?

On the Street…Casual DB, Florence



I always think of DB’s as the most formal of jackets – very buttoned-up.

here I love the idea of a casual cotton DB worn in a very easy way.

Personal Silhouette (part 2)



I think what we are seeing is that some people are very in-tuned with what type of shapes look good on them.

For guys this would translate into always or never wear double-breasted jackets, or peak lapels with a low gorge or something like that.

The Scent of Me



I still can’t believe that this is the man that created the most popular cologne of my junior high years.

The name and actual person meant nothing to me at the time but all the kids at Stonybrook wanted to be wearing Lagerfeld.

We were not dressed very cool but we smelled great!

On the Street…..The Impact of Mens Accessories, NYC




The women’s accessories business is huge because of the impact the right bag or sunglasses can have on a total look.

We don’t often hear/notice that same impact in menswear.

Well, here is a great example of a few small accessories having a major impact on a look and totally changing the perception of that look.

By simply adding a silver cuff, highly stylized sandals and a dramatic hair style; this gentleman has taken a basically preppy look and turned it on it’s head.

Of course the proportions of the polo and the rolled shorts also impact the look but the first thing i noticed were his accessories.

I love the idea of finding a personal silhouette and then focusing on design details to vary the look.

Summer Shade

I have never worn a straw or Panama hat but the idea is really growing on me.
Personally I don’t think I would wear it with a suit but with a linen shirt and shorts it could work very nicely for me.

Since you guys probably know more about it than I, what should I be looking for?

10 Corso Como has a great selection of men’s hats right now.
I might check out Jay Kos here in NYC

Finally…..My Favorite Shot From London



Sometimes the business of running a blog can affect the day-to-day of blogging.

On my recent trip to London I was able to find a few good shots (even though it rained for hours everyday). However, something fell-thru on my GQ page so I had to switch those trip images to the magazine.

Since GQ just hit the stands I can finally post this image.

What I love about this shot is its timelessness.

Not that it is so great but that it is actually timeless.

Without the benefit of cars, or the way other people are dressed in the background to put it in a clear period context, I can imagine someone 40 years from now having a hard time deciding if this was shot in 1983 or 2008.

I read a lot of comments here like “I grew up in the 80′s and I don’t want to go back.” Well, I grew up in the 80′s also and I think it would be interesting to hear this young man’s romantic vision of that decade.

On the Street…..Darcy in Milan & Paris



People often leave comments saying something like “this look isn’t new or directional”

Looking “new” or “directional” is of very little importance to most of us. I don’t think I would ever describe Darcy as “directional” and yet I know a lot of women that would love to have the kind of quiet chic that she embodies.

A shorts suit? Doesn’t work for me.

Shorts and a sportscoat? Just right.
