Love the 2nd guys checkered shirt w/the dark navy trench, and Glenn’s striped scarf is also very nice.

Great pictures, I love the lighting; is it the Grand Palais? I know turtlenecks get criticized as professor-like and stiff, but the first gent wears it very well! The other 2 examples are a bit softer in construction and fit, but very dapper nonetheless. I love the jacket on the bottom photo, it looks like superb quality. It reminds me of an Hermes windbreaker I saw in a Depot Ventes once. I tried to find flaws and could not find any! Sadly, I could not affort it either. Jorge from W Palm Beach
Love the navy blue on all three – and in such different juxtapositions! the bottom with the scarf/umbrella/zip jacket is just excellent. all three look a bit tired – and the navy shows they’re still putting in the effort despite
I LOVE WHAT THE LAST TWO GENTLEMAN ARE WEARING ITS ROUGH AND A BIT PREPPY BUT WORKS FOR ME…RATHER THAN THE SUITE.DESIREE

Glenn O’brien looks great as usual, however the first look is just great – I love the black with navy
March 12, 2009 at 9:29 am
I think men in Navy are lovely…in a masculine way. :-)
Love this picture series!

First of all the Chanel collection was to die for! These guys look like they need some hot coffee and some good economic news….
Get back in the game is my advice to all those out there pinching pennies. You only live once…at least look good doing it.

Is Glenn O’Brien trying out the rugged look, or growing a beard perhaps?
March 12, 2009 at 9:44 am
YES. This is a brilliant direction.
March 12, 2009 at 9:49 am
I really loved this blog! I’ll to view always!! Brazilian Kisses for everyone!

I like that the last man’s hair goes with the outfit.
March 12, 2009 at 10:01 am
I own a similar trench coat to that which the man in the middle photo wears, so of course he looks good in it.
Top photo – great suit that would look better with a shirt and tie. The turtleneck seems out of place with the pocket handkerchief. A matter of taste.
Middle photo – Is that an ascot? A tie? It detracts from his otherwise good look. An interesting tie would have worked better for him.
Lower photo – blue and white scarf brightens up his look. This gent will look better when his beard grows longer.

What a face! It’s hard to get past the gentleman with the umbrella eyes. I am in love! Wonderful photo.

Yes yes yes, Dark Navy Blue is my favorite color!
March 12, 2009 at 10:31 am
these photos are fantastic – i’m a big fan of the blue and white theme here!
March 12, 2009 at 10:32 am
Great outfits, all of them, but I particularly like the cravat with the gingham shirt and raincoat. That is a fantastic look.
March 12, 2009 at 10:34 am
That navy blue trenchcoat is beautiful.
March 12, 2009 at 10:42 am
Who was it that said navy is the french black ? i very much like all three gentlemens’ outfits, elegant and not too severe.
March 12, 2009 at 10:43 am
Three of the classiest dressed gentlemen on the Sartorialist in a row! Perfect.
March 12, 2009 at 10:47 am
I love this color combo – it’s actually what I’m wearing today. It’s a great way to jump into spring.
Lovely photos, as always.
March 12, 2009 at 10:50 am
Something to be said for a man who goes grey and embraces his maturity!
March 12, 2009 at 10:58 am
The white and blue striped scarf is wonderful but I feel like the umbrella makes the picture.
March 12, 2009 at 11:09 am
The clothes are great, but it is the haunting or haunted eyes that do it for me.

so chic…pinstripes of course..but the trench with shirt & scarf is chicissime !

Is the suit in the top photo A&S?
March 12, 2009 at 11:54 am
crisp and distinguished. looks especially nice with grey/s&p hair.

Three very unusual faces – in a (front) row…. Great!!
March 12, 2009 at 1:31 pm
They all look great!…………………………..But not very straight.
March 12, 2009 at 1:32 pm
Seems like Chanel attracts some very handsome men !Love the mix of dark blues together ! Have to agree with Jack Daniel :it’s my favourite colour too !
March 12, 2009 at 2:12 pm
these are great – and i love the last guy’s bone structure – beautifully androgynous
March 12, 2009 at 2:17 pm
I love blue and white is my favorite color ensemble.
March 12, 2009 at 2:29 pm
Glenn O’Brien has the best eyes. Ever.
March 12, 2009 at 2:52 pm
nice navy collection…congrats Mr Sarto for Air France Mag….Philippe
March 12, 2009 at 2:59 pm
Sartorialist, this is truly your best time of year. I love how you manage to isolate and display the new fashion ideas that come out as late-winter weather and the intensity of fashion weeks the world over, push fashion-lovers to exercise their creativity and strive towards the new fashion zeitgeist. You are capturing these fantastic dark-royal-blue, statement-shoe, shot-of-color moments this year with such clarity, I love it!
Thanks very much.
March 12, 2009 at 3:09 pm
This spring is mine: I have a narrow navy cotton parka and all kinds of navy-white scarves! I love the gentleman with the striped scarf and umbrella!
March 12, 2009 at 3:34 pm
I don’t know these men..they are really well dressed but lacking the best accessory a nice expression, # 2 seems kinder he’s my favorite.
March 12, 2009 at 3:56 pm
i’m going to be old-fashioned and question the gentleman’s choice of wearing a lovely double breasted suit with a turtle neck, does he have on loafers too? no. no. no. no. no.
March 12, 2009 at 4:44 pm
Ooh! The 2nd pic is my fave! I LOVE navy & white! Especially in the nautical flavour like the 3rd pic :)xx
March 12, 2009 at 5:10 pm
Is it strange of me that I find that somehow, all of these men are somehow adorable? I mean, as well as ridiculously stylish… I love umbrellas with the “cane” or “hook” sort of handle, too. Hmm, I think I’m developing a thing for older guys, they’re just impossibly cute. They all strike me somehow as a tad effeminate, maybe that’s what it is.
March 12, 2009 at 5:23 pm
I like the silver hair & beard – inspiring.
March 12, 2009 at 6:33 pm
All 3 look great. I find the middle especially inspriring. Each piece is perfect with some interesting aspect but nothing bold or overpowering. You’d think that they’d benefit from some contrast, but they go together beautifully. I really want to try the scarf look, especially after they guy in NYC that you had with the scarf under his shirt a couple weeks ago. But I worry that on me it will look too affected. I’ll just have try and see if the Mrs. lets me out of the house.
I wore navy and white yesterday (well, my tie had some gray in it too). I thought it looked pretty sharp.
March 12, 2009 at 6:35 pm
It seems gingham dress shirts are pretty “en vogue” this season ( men is second pic). Its a pretty sophisticated look I think…but this stands out more in person than in picture I feel. I luuv the “gangster” striped suit on the first gentleman…pretty conservative, but the turtleneck gives it this tint of casual appeal, very well done!
March 12, 2009 at 7:34 pm
Love the beard Glenn, keep it! You look amazing!

March 12, 2009 at 9:24 pm
Salut Mr. Sartorialist,
“blue and white” is such a great title for an elegant and spring/summer outfit for that year. I decided in the night to yesterday, too, that blue and white will be my combination for looking well.
You have a good view for colours… trend-colours. I know that the whole world know this, but i have just wanted to let you know it again ;-)

That suit is such a classic, classy pattern! The navy blue with white pin-stripes never goes out of style!

Great Trio George, Stefano and Glenn all look great but I mean what else would you expect haha
March 13, 2009 at 12:01 am
I would really like to be Glenn when I grow up.
March 13, 2009 at 12:02 am
by the way sart i think that the first pic you got of cortina without shades on haha
March 13, 2009 at 3:29 am
The fellow in the 2nd picture pulled it off best.
March 13, 2009 at 5:25 am
would love to see what shoes George was wearing with that combo …
March 13, 2009 at 8:46 am
They all make blue looks so good-like it could be next in line to be the new black. By the way, great portraits, Scott! You are a true master!
March 13, 2009 at 3:19 pm
Modigliani would have loved to paint stefano tonchi. it would have been beautiful.
March 13, 2009 at 6:57 pm
All three looks are gorgeous! Such an inspiration!
March 13, 2009 at 7:59 pm
All three gentlemen look exquisite. The Navy blue suit is a timeless classic. Glenn O'Brian is my hero lol(&the umbrella is snazzy) but the 2nd gentleman takes the cake for me. The checkered shirt and the trench coat look amazing.
March 14, 2009 at 1:12 am
That’s a beautiful trench in the second photo…
March 14, 2009 at 1:13 am
Navy, navy, everywhere! Is black dead?
The first guy makes it official: turtle necks are the future of men’s wear. We will phase out the necktie until it is regarded as quaint as the bow tie.
March 14, 2009 at 6:45 am
glenn o’brien is just AMAZING! of course you’ve seen his best dressed nod in GQ…well deserved!
March 14, 2009 at 10:19 am
I love that he has an umbrella from the GAP ( i have the same one!) expensive umbrellas may be pretty but always get lost!
We will fight on the beaches....
March 14, 2009 at 3:34 pm
Love the scarf in the middle picture. Most men need something around their neck in when the weather is not warm.
March 14, 2009 at 4:21 pm
These are great. I really love what Glenn is wearing. He’s awesome. Have a fantastic weekend. Cheers!
March 15, 2009 at 12:23 pm
are these the same twins that did the McQueen “Overlook” show in ’99?

3 of the sart’s favorite sons in this little series. great inspiration for spring.
March 18, 2009 at 9:48 am
the 1st guy is extremely handsome, pinstripes are such a great look on a suit.
March 21, 2009 at 1:07 am
There is something wonderfully honest and dare I say feminine about his eyes. Add to that, a lovely composition, which draws the eyes from the collar, to the nautical stripes to the crooked brunt of wooden umbrella. Marvelous.
March 22, 2009 at 3:35 pm
The last gent is truly gorgeous, hes aged with grace! How rare!
March 22, 2009 at 10:48 pm
Glenn does it again!
the umbrella – delightful.
March 23, 2009 at 4:21 am
can anybody identify the first guy???he looks so hot,thanks in advance
April 13, 2009 at 11:22 pm
the gentleman in the first pic is george cortina. always flawlessly appointed.
