The Best of The Sartorialist 2013

This was easily one of my favorite images of 2013. ¬† We were filming my bi-annual lunch video at a local trattoria when I noticed some of my guys were missing. ¬†I checked outside and , sure enough, the Italians were out there in a little hive of ¬†smoke, chatter and flying hands. ¬†I didn’t think much about it at the moment but decided to take a few seconds to myself to review images in a quiet spot across the street. ¬†When I looked up this is exactly what I saw! ¬†I couldn’t have planned it better.

 

I love the image because it feels timeless and yet captures a very specific moment in men’s fashion.

My New Fuji X100s

I am so happy with this new little Fuji camera I picked up recently. I love that it is so lightweight, fast and that the focus issues of the X-Pro1 have been resolved. The photo that will be posted at 4pm EST today was shot with this camera.

Back To Morocco

Next week I’ll be in Morocco visiting Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains, Skoura and Ouarzazate, and other places. Does anyone have suggestions on where to go? I’m especially looking to visit interesting villages in the Atlas mountains or any points of interest in the general Marrakech area as I’ll be using it as a base for the last two days of the trip.

At Modernlink…Bond St., New York

For the last 10 years I have been living in such a neutral world. My color palette went from beige to grey however, lately I find myself so attracted to color. Color combinations, color palettes, color patterns. Recently when I was in Modernlink, ¬†nothing stood out the way this chair did. The shock of color only served to enhance the design details. It’s one of the only pieced I have ever considered buying not for function.

125 Years Around The World, National Geographic

I’m actually praying for a blizzard so I can sit for hours, guilt free, and look at this book. This is easily one of the most inspiring books I’ve bought in years and it reminds me of the power of a simple, straightforward image.

The Virtues of a Slim-Sleeved Coat

One of my best purchases this fall has been my Aspesi cashmere double breasted coat.

An important visual trick I’ve learned is that if you want to look ten pounds slimmer, don’t make the torso of your jacket smaller, maybe go to the tailor and have the sleeve brought in. If you look at old movies of Fred Astaire, he maintains such a beautiful graceful line while dancing and wearing a suit jacket, but if you notice, the sleeves on his jackets, are so much slimmer than the sleeves you see today. The key is that with a slim-sleeve jacket, it creates space between your arm and your trunk, which again is something that we’re not seeing very much with most modern coats and suits. Everything is so oversized, or incredibly shrunken (I think) in the wrong places.

 

P.S. Unfortunately this coat is not currently available on Aspesi.com. Hey Aspesi, maybe this would be a great coat to add in a few different colors.

 

P.P.S. 2 years ago when I was in the Intel Visual Life video, a lot of people asked what glasses I was wearing. Unfortunately, I don’t think I ever ended up getting back to you guys, so the glasses that I’m wearing in the video, and in this photo are Cutler & Gross. I think Cutler & Gross have discontinued this frame but I found a very similar model at Oliver Peoples.

 

P.P.P.S. You might notice I’m walking with my good friend Fabrizio Rollo, interior decorator extraordinaire¬†from Sao Paolo. You’ve seen a breadth of his great fashion style over the years, but his apartment was recently featured on Elle Decor seen here.

Shopping For Bad Weather Wear In LA

I find it’s always a good idea to shop for bad weather clothing in LA because they never have bad weather, but always a full size run! I hope it snows in New York soon so I can break in these new Nike-duck-hi-top-boot-sneakers!
