    Wow! Are these shots for GANT’s campaign? They’re certainly more than worthy. Chic and beautiful, Scott.

    One question for all the fellas: I would never try to wear a sweater this thick underneath a blazer for fear of looking over-stuffed. What say you? It certainly looks great layered with the collar and all—and very good on this handsome guy—but how often have you pulled this look off? Bravo to this man (or his stylist) for making it appear practical and beautiful.

    And I love how the coffee cup on the curb just lines up perfectly with her.

    Oh my god! Its such a shame not to live in NY in this moment! I can’t believe it…any plans for NYE? I’d love to pop in if possible! BTW love both looks, but his jacket combination looks particularly cool!

    Agh, I’m so pissed that I don’t live in New York or near there. I always see these events being hosted with open invites to the followers of the blog. I think that is incredible. I would love to attend to some of them.

    As for the above styles: The gentleman with the layered black and brown; simply pro. He’s just flaunting his knowledge of dress and concept of coordination. Furthermore… I love those jeans. I swear they were made to be worn with a black/brown ensemble. They are very obviously a brown jean, but I still see a black wash, throughout.

    I don’t like the scale of the huge scarf on top or the bulk of the shiny black shoes on the bottom. They make her feet look like Minnie Mouse. These proportion errors, to my mind, obliterate the person. All I see are the scarf and shoes and I’m not that taken with either one.

    He looks so perfectly put together. The chunky sweater underneath it all ties it all together, but I love the boots. This photo captures perfectly a man at ease in his environment -that tagged wall.

    Does this guy look exactly like Brad Davis from the movie Midnight Express in the 1970s or is it just me?

    i can’t take the man on the top. he’s GORGEOUS and perfectly put together. the girl is lovely as well. looks good on her b/c she’s tall and thin. oversized scarf incredible.

    I love both looks.

    The Fella: Great neckline. I like the brown/black combo topped with the charcoal blazer and black leather accessories. I wish I had a man that dressed like that!

    The Lady: I love black. Black leggings topped with a blazer with what looks like tails? The scarf looks great with her short hair style. I want those shoes!

    Hope you raise a lot of money!

    I love the cream scarf on her!

    The guy looks a bit layered but…..I like it.

    Shiny jeans though, never did get that fad. I know it is an unwashed look but denim is best to me with a softer finish.

    this morning: one of the most magnificent mis-reads of all time.

    real headline: "The Sartorialist & Gant Party This Thursday!"

    what I saw: "The Sartorialist & Giant Panty This Thursday!"

    granted, it was early when I read this. but you must admit it's sort of catchy, Sart. :D

    The second photo is particularly brilliant. The proportion of the shot but also of her outfit is really visually interesting.

    Well, well, well… Looks like Sart is back in fine form once again with the last several images! Classic, timeless, modern, sleek and very much in the spirit of the internationlist– in other words, Sart is back in his true sartorialist fine form.

    Love these two portraits. The handsome gentleman you’ve shot before, and is so very much deserving of a return: His style is easy, refined and so effortless.

    The young lady is achingly beautiful and looks like a dream-come-to-life of a Aubrey Beardsley drawing; with her long elegant silhouette. And it also helps that she reminds me of the gorgeous Natalie Portman.

    I love the physical and regal beauty of both these stylish individuals set against the iconic, raw and grittiness of a very NYC graffitied backdrop.

    Your eye sir, is an inspiration to all :-) Thank you so much for sharing!

    Why can´t my husband learn to dress like this gentleman? He has the same items hanging in his closet but can never combine them so well. He won´t listen to me either. Maybe this photo will strengthen my case.

    Have we seen this girl before? I think that there is somewhat too much scarf around her neck. Surely it´s not that cold yet. And what about the shoes-they look awful. Is she able to walk on them?

    I like both pictures. Both guy and girl look even better standing in front of the graffiti. The scarf is a little to big for my taste.

    They both look quite cozy. I’m not particularly fond of either look, but am jealous that they can layer like that already. Sucks being in DC.

    I have to say my all time favorite shot on this blog was one you took of this girl wearing a very unique plaid jacket (as dorky as that sounds on paper it was rocking). It was last year or the year before. She was either in Milan or Sweden and she’s one of the few people I’ve looked at and thought “I would love to look like THAT”. I can honestly say I never feel like I want to look like anyone else…. but she is special to me.

    She’s my Sartorialist all star, numero uno. I put her above the Voguettes and all the style people you’ve shot who are lovely, really, but none can tough this lady IMO. Ugh, I hate to gush over people but I can’t stop myself.

    As for the dude. I love what he’s wearing, although I’m not a huge fan of cuffed jeans. He’s ultra sexy. I reckon he can wear anything and look good.

    Those lace up, wedged, peeptoed booties are fantastic. I’m not too familiar with the label Gant, but are those shoes by them?? If someone could point me to the direction where i can purchase those booties, it would be much appreciated.

    Sart, congrats on the exhibition! Would love to check it out but alas, all the way in Sydney.

    the thing that really makes the first shot for me is that little flash or red in the lining of his jacket. i suppose it’s more about the overall photo (in terms of colour composition) than just the clothes…i generally love a neutral colour palette anyway – especially if there is a mixture of interesting contrasting textures to keep it from being too drab. i’ve never liked shiny jeans for myself but they seem to work in this case.

    I guess I’m the only one who finds the uneven cuffs (revealing the tops of the cool boots) to be a little affected and stumpifying. Small quibble, though. He still looks great. And I love that the rusty yellow/orange tones in the graffiti match the jeans seam and are bringing out the sweater.
