The two men on the left are fashionable as well. Very Yohji Yamamoto.

I see the look of your grandfather in the streets of London all the time. Looking at his friends, his outfit must have been pretty groundbreaking!!
January 7, 2012 at 8:18 pm
The man in the middle is a BEAUTIFUL specimen….wish I had a time machine..

Love the vintage photos – always so interesting seeing how “put together” everyone used to look.
I often wonder what people will think of the current fashions when they become vintage photos!

I just finished serving 2years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco. thesartorialist.com was always a steady go-to when I needed a quick piece of the west.
Not too long ago you did a section on Atlanta which is where I’m from. Being so far away from home the ‘dirty south’ pictures were a wonderful surprise.
When I opened the page today and found this image—I cried. Thanks for sharing:)
The two men on the right are each wearing a djillaba with a gown/long shirt underneath called a gandora.

Quelle belle photo! Souvenirs de mon adolescence au Maroc.

Lovely shot. I too inherited sartorial tastes from my grandfather who was a very snappy dresser.
A man searching for style in middle age.
LOVE IT! STAY CLASSY! LOVE VINTAGE PICTURES

reminds me of my grandfather who grew up during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan. He’s always in a suit, even when flying.
January 8, 2012 at 8:39 pm
It´s a great picture!
January 8, 2012 at 10:21 pm
Beautiful! I can’t wait to show this image to my father who is a Spanish Moroccan Jew. I love seeing pictures from a time when Jews and Muslims lived side by side harmoniously.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell you,
you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which
too few people are speaking intelligently about.
I’m very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
August 7, 2014 at 7:56 am
I don’t even understand how I finished up here,
however I believed this put up was good. I don’t recognize who
you might be but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger if you aren’t
August 13, 2014 at 2:00 am
Your style is unique in comparison to other folks I have read stuff
from. Thanks for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I’ll just book
mark this site.
