It looks like a shot from the film :)
amazing pic…..Beautiful ;)
Wow. Fashion is like a pendulum. Would have never been able to tell this was an old photo if it weren't for the backstory and maybe that old truck in the background. Excellent.

does it have to be vintage? i mean, the majority of the photos you've gotten and posted are from the 40-60s. can't it just be old?
really nice photo btw. :P

Aaw. The photo really gives you a sense of what it was like back in the day. Thanks for sharing!b

While the man mopping his head with his hankerchief kind of ruins the shot, he is indicative of another era when people carried around hankerchieves in their pockets for those sweaty (or teary) moments.

I love the collars.

Love how this photo makes me feel. I can almost hear their story…such a great idea to have people send these in.
Also, been meaning to say how great it was to have you at Parsons this past week. I felt like I really connected to what you said and your perspective on the fashion industry.

May 15, 2011 at 8:42 pm
everyone knows that these arent Scott'd photos, right? Ok just checking
This photo was taken in the 60's or yesterday afternoon? Simply timeless.
love it! i think this is clothes look amazing cute!!!
May 15, 2011 at 9:37 pm
Interesting that the man looks almost contemporary while the lady has an ere of the past about her…The hairstyle is especially telling. Lovely photo.
May 15, 2011 at 10:36 pm
I just love the photo……so vintage.

She looks so pretty, and her coat is marvelous!
May 15, 2011 at 11:47 pm
oh my! this looks like as if the Sartorialist traveled back in time and started taking street style photos in the 60's! absolutely wonderful!
May 15, 2011 at 11:58 pm
why is that man wiping his sweat when it looks like it's winter?Now i'm more curious about that man than the other two who are being photographed.

May 16, 2011 at 12:33 am
I could wear everything she has on today in my own way, and it would still look gr8! That's the thing about style – it's eternal…

That's great! Very stylish and so chic :)
May 16, 2011 at 2:06 am
love this photo :)
May 16, 2011 at 2:56 am
viewing this in the context of the blog it's almost illusory – as if scott was able to turn back the clock and capture the moment himself. love how it relates to the usual posts.
May 16, 2011 at 3:28 am
Mr Schuman, my forst impression of this image was that it was you and Garancé. But then it wasn´t (obviously) but you two do look as striking as the two subjects.
May 16, 2011 at 3:34 am
Truly looks to be one of your very own.
May 16, 2011 at 3:39 am
love this vintage photo!

I think the greatest part of this picture is the man walking past- not only is he wearing a hat (which is rare), but he's using a handkerchief, which is probably as rare as the hat. He's fantastic, from his hat, to his pocket square, all the way down to his cuff length. Great picture.
May 16, 2011 at 5:00 am
Just saw an exhibition with photo's by Paul Fusco that he made on the funeraltrain of Robbert Kennedy in 1968. Hundreds of photo's of people standing along the trainway from NY to Washington. Very impressive and a valuable document of that time. I recognized 1968 immediately in the photo of your grandparents.
ps. Very curious of the Amsterdampics
May 16, 2011 at 5:03 am
Oh sorry Giulia, not a photo of you grandparents but taken by your grandfather ! silly me
May 16, 2011 at 5:23 am
Lovely pic. Both of those outfits look like they could be worn today as modern outfits.
May 16, 2011 at 5:27 am
Vintage NYC – how devine!

I love this photo….I feel like watching some retro movie.
May 16, 2011 at 9:49 am
This shot is so timeless that besides the bus in the background it looks like it could of been taken today.
May 16, 2011 at 11:26 am
I'm going with 1969. Madison Ave, around 39th-40th street.
May 16, 2011 at 1:05 pm
What a great photo.
May 16, 2011 at 1:34 pm
classic never dies!

May 16, 2011 at 1:55 pm
Great shot.Funny enough, knowing that it dates back to 1968, I think the photo hasn't really aged all that much, not only in terms of resolution, but also regarding the couple.Sure, you can tell it's not 2011 clothing, and yet, they still look very modern to me.
May 16, 2011 at 3:17 pm
Great… I'll definetly look for old pics in my house. I love seeing them.
May 16, 2011 at 4:00 pm
Fantastic photo!!ciao ciao from RomeBExCLUSIVE MAGAZINE
I'm with Chris. The clothes look very contemporary with the exception of the shoes. Could have been taken last week….

This photo looks as if it could have been taken today. Look at that coat….swoon.
May 17, 2011 at 8:06 pm
Dear Mr. Schuman,
I just thought it'd be pretty cool to actually comment on The Sartorialist even though I've actually never took time to 'comment' and give my opinion on it. First things first, I LOVE what you've created, and I enjoy every photo you take and the ones you post from other inspiring people whom are close to you.
Now, I've obsessed so much over 'street fashion' and 'detailing' in an outfit as much as you do. Now, one of my recent favorite posts from you was the "On the Street…Tompkins Square Park, New York" where you made a Givenchy reference. Thank you for The Sartorialist- I look forward each day for a new post!
Thank you for taking your time :)
PS: I recall a time where you had a book signing- I think it was @The Promenade, and my friend took a picture with you. haha I was pretty jealous. and another favorite post was how you added in how Giorgio Armani looked better in front of a black background. thank you again.

People wearing that now would still look great, amazing
June 6, 2011 at 3:29 am
WOW. This photo transports me to a time and a place, just like magic. I love the quality of the light, their silhouettes against the almost fairytale towers in the background, and the angled lines made by the sidewalk. I love this photo! Its cinematic, and just draws me right in. My favourite, so far, of the vintage photos.
June 23, 2011 at 5:35 pm
the scott schuman of the 1960s, oh my god! amazing.
August 6, 2011 at 12:06 pm
Now that’s my kind of style. Classic!
