    Honestly – you are incredible & inspirational, you never fail to surprise me! Those kids are adorable – congrats, congrats, congrats on them and on your latest success. I am wearing red Converse today, but without a shred of the rock n roll attitude your gorgeous little thing is exuding. Love your comments too about parenting – its so hard to know the best way to go (stay at home vs daycare etc) and its something that I think about constantly for when I have children. You’ve given that debate a very fresh perspective and shown that it can be done in a big city. This post was amazing and much needed on this Friday.
    Thank you. You rock.

    Scott, every morning when I arrive at my workplace, the first thing I do, besides getting coffee and checking e-mails, is to look up your website.
    This time I found your beautiful special on cookiemag.com and it gave me a completely new, deeper perspective on you and your blog and I thank you for that! Those are some beautiful pics and I’m sure your daughter will soon hit the tents!

    It just shows me (us) once again what a fantastic photographer you are!
    Keep it up and take care!

    there is nothing sexier than a man who takes responsibility for his family. Being Scandinavian I thought our men were more or less alone in this world in taking time to be with their children – I am so very happy to see that I was wrong! And these children are adorable. Great attitude!

    What a great thing. As a Dad who stayed at home with his kids, I can appreciate the “most rewarding, most trying time” comment.

    Great pictures and a great idea. Kids clothes can be so trying…I appreciate the fact that your kids and pics look natural. It’s nice to see little girls who look like little girls and not overly “dolled up” in Pink and lace or dressed too old and inappropriate (trying to look like Britney or Paris…)

    Another great product from the Sartorialist. Your kids are very cute.

    Isabel and Claudia are twins? Pardon me if that’s an obvious point to all others.

    They’re darlings!

    As to “Sart Jr.” I think it’s a good idea. I used to think it was over the top to impose fashion on kids: “Just let ‘em do what they want…cowboy boots and angel wings to school? Fine.”

    After seeing Zara’s croquis display for kids…

    http://zara.com/i06/index.html

    …(click Trends then Child) the other day, I softened a bit.

    While they’re not dolls and I’d never want to impose my tastes on them, it’s nice to be “fancy shmancy” every now and again.

    I’ll look for the mag up here in Canada next month!

    Sart Daddy -
    this is brilliant in every regard, from the project to your parenting. I, too was a SAHD and really dug it.
    Putting your heart into it is the key, right — the difference between parenting and babysitting?

    Now, more important things: yes on print scarves, no on winter white. GQ runs a “mistakes of the past” column periodically, or something along those lines, and white shoes and winter white pants will show up there… on the other hand, white suits, two thumbs up.

    Sart,

    This was one of the most moving posts for me. Being a dad who also took some time off and found the whole experience so rewarding and very life changing, I can appreciate where the love and joy you speak of comes from. Plus I like that you want the kids to have a sense of personal style that in unique and individual.

    Well done

    Thank god – one more reason to buy the mag (don’t need incentives to visits your site – it is brilliant). It is daunting at best to dress my boys in something other than a Gap advert. Maybe with your photos in Cookie, I’ll have a chance to show them that individuality is something to aspire to at all levels. If not, there is bound to be inspiration galore for mummy.

    After enjoying your blog for awhile now I am moved to comment. I must say that I think some care ought to be taken in imposing some of the more unfortunate values associated with fashion (rampant consumption and shopping as an emotional fix come to mind)upon our children.

    I haven’t read Cookie magazine but I hope there is some conscientiousness about this.

    Keep up the excellent work Sartorialist!

    I usually dont comment here, but when I saw Claudia I thought “He -must- have instructed her to pose that way.”. Continued reading, and was stunned!
    Just had to say that the pictures of Claudia and Isabel really made my day brighter! Can’t get much brighter now though, my niece was born today and I am indeed hoping she’ll grow up to look as cute as those kids

    Bravo!
    You are so right on so many points. I think parents are losing sight of raising their own children and focusing on their careers.
    Kids are so much more stylish in and innocent way in Europe too. I think kids in the US dress like little adults. kind of distasteful to me.

  47. Foodie and the Feast

    February 16, 2007 at 12:12 pm

    I love that parents are now more aware of how their personal aesthetics can affect their children. I remember being extremely conscious of my own strange, mismatched clothing as a child, and though I think confidence can be won in a variety of ways, good style is a great avenue towards self-actualization. Your children are lovely and I’m sure they are similarly enriched in many areas of thier lives!

    i’ve always had some style, but lately i’ve taken a much greater interest in menswear. and i credit my four-year-old daughter, who loves to help me get dressed in the morning. (she also dresses her younger brother, when given the chance.) the pure delight that she takes, for example, in men’s ties, opened my eyes to a whole world that i failing to enjoy as much (and as easily) as i should.

    kid style should be as much about the kids dressing themselves as it is about parents trying looks on them. both things are good, of course, but the four-year-old can combine colors and patterns in very unexpected and good ways.

    If you have your father’s love from birth it becomes, unbeknownst to you, a reservoir of strength, wisdom, and support. Something so profound and nurturing that it sustains you long after your Father passes from this earthly realm. When you don’t have it, you spend the rest of your life seeking a substitute. With this gift of your love,you are giving your children something that is greater then anything else you will give them. Your love shows in the smiling faces of your children. Kudos to you Sart, you’re a gentleman in the truest sense of the word.

    What spirit on those faces, those kids know they’re loved! Bravo~!

    However…. gotta offer a contrary bit of opinion here, mon chere… and bear in mind, I’m not suggesting by the following remarks that you do any differently than what suits you (and _good_ on you for being such an involved and loving dad)… but I just have to throw down some comment for the other view.

    I think kids need total autonomy as soon as they show a preference, where clothes are concerned. And the more embarassing to parents, the better! There’s nothing like the sight of perfectly turned out designer kids to make _my_ skin crawl.

    Childhood is the one period we get to work our shit out, to turn a blind eye to reason or good taste. If children are conditioned from a young age to be ever so particular about their fashion sense if they want to please mum and dad, I think psychological process and the world in general will prove a far worse place than it already is. Forgive me…

    I’d rather see the crap fashion sense, the sentimental wardrobe, the bazillion ways to put too much plaid on one body, rasta stripes and frou frou, all zipped up with the chaos and adventure that is life in this sensate world. If not, I fear the over-managed children depicted in these lifestyle magazines will only ever know jonesing, and all that other adult posturing that has no place in the magico-poetic turbulence of our fleeting youth…

    Again, just me offering a totally ‘other’ point of view. And if you think for a _second_ that my remarks might be misinterpreted as criticism of you, please don’t post them.

    …your friend, la tang…

    i’m very excited about your foray into sartoritot (can i start that new phrase?) and cookie mag. i had no problem believing that the poses are the childrens’ own, as my own 3-yr old poses every time he see a camera with no prodding or stage direction. i love seeing the outfits that he puts together on his own, but am so sad that he will no longer allow me to dress him in anything with buttons! children are a wonderful fashion inspiration, as well as a sometimes much needed reminder not to take it all so seriously. when i was younger i considered any outfit i put together a sucess if it could make me laugh. now that i have a more respectable job and am older, it’s harder to get away with that. congratulations on two winning little girls. i have always wondered: how do you manage to travel so much and stay connected with your children? it seems like that would be very hard to be pulled in two directions. hopefully they get to travel with you sometimes! kudos.

    Sarto, I love your blog, but I have mixed feelings on targeting kids. I suppose it stems from being ridiculed for what I wore in those lovely pre-teen years. Which was anything clean…

    Anyway, I hope your pictures focus on kids’ personalities instead of what’s trendy/stylish for the moment. An outfit a child picks out for themselves is so much more fun for me than something their parents pick for them.

    Sart, I LOVE this new venture of yours. The photos are so beautiful and your passion for it is infectious. I work at an elementary school and can tell you that the kids who have parents visit them during lunch and play with them on the playground make such a huge impact, not only on their own kids, but those children around them. My mother has been shooting the kids at school for two years now and they are definitely natural posers. To see their personal style develop at 6 and 7 years old is more than a treat to witness. One girl, Cassey, wears her red cowGIRL boots (she made certain to correct me that they are not cowboy boots when worn by a girl) with everything. And let me tell you, it works.

    Thank you for such a fabulous new contribution!

    It actually kind of makes me sad to think of the unfortunate children who are born not ‘perfect’ and don’t ‘pull off’ style and fashion so well.

    Fashion is such a spice to life that sometimes we forget how lucky we are to even have that chance to experience it.

    But hey, during this wonderful journey, maybe sartorialist can sometimes show us how even the less fortunate might incorporate style as a force of good that makes us rethink it from being something superfluous to being something beautiful and life-affirming.

    Because, in the end, isn’t style…just a __________ to the life we’ve been given?

    Marry me? :-)

    No, but seriously, your kids are too cute for words. I’ve always been an anti-kid person myself, but your pics .. shock, horror … actually made me kind of broody! If I start dropping babies all over the place, I’ll know who to blame! [So will my husband, who is definitely not ready to be a Dad, let alone a stay-at-home-dad.]

    Keep up the good work :-)

    Your daughters are lovely – and it seems 2 very different personalities.

    I’ve spent a lot of time in Europe and always loved how traditional the kids looked. I’d see them in the parks in their little leather mary janes, wool double breasted coats and flannel shorts and think that it was like something from another time – which it is.

    Now that I am a parent to an amazing 9 year old, I can give you a heads up and tell you that there is about a 3 year window of opportunity to get kids to wear what you want them to wear. Move quickly, because before you know it the bon point plaid jumper will be stuffed in the back of the closet forever.

    I didn’t know you were a dad! It’s easy to see your influence on them and vice versa- and I mean that in the good way. This blog has loads of pictures of lovely girls, but your two are the loveliest I’ve seen on here.

    And congratulations to you, too, for being a dad they can be right proud of- it’s truly touching that you chose to share this with us, so maybe in a way it’s Isabel and Claudia we have to thank for this amazing corner of cyberspace.

    How we love you, Scott! My husband and I don’t plan on having children but we do adore them for all they bring to the world. Your photos exude such love and warmth. Thank you! I agree, Cookie magazine is one of the best publications out there- everyone should pick it up, parent or not.

    Adorable children! Look at Claudia, she’s just perfect with the sun and the pose! Those kind of things make you the best ”look hunter” in the world. There’s a story and a meaning underneath every pictures. And getting kids on pictures is a awesome idea!

    I love the cookie pictures and comments. I love the second outfit especially. You have this special ability to capture a person’s spirit (just take a look at pic 1). Thanks. This is the only blog i visit consistently because it always brings a smile to my face. Thank you.

    That’s soo great, really. I can’t wait to see more. Thanks.

    I’ve always wanted to have kids but given that I’m a designer and the insane amount of hours I usually work, I put it out of my mind because I didn’t think you could do both- make money and make your kids happy. It’s nice to see you doing that and I realize that I just need to be more creative in how I conduct business now. Wish me luck.

    I can remember when Cookie was first coming out. “This seems cool! I’m going to have to check it out.” was my first imply to the magazine, although in the end, I always would pass it by for my usual periodical purchases of Vogue.

    Hearing this makes my skin prickle with delight. My visits to The Sartorialist are almost daily, if I’m not “away from keyboard”. I love what you do and “people-watching” to see how other people see the world through their eyes. This speaks very true for our youth. It’s refreshing, inspiring, and fun…just like the sartorialist itself.

    That said, I’m giving Cookie a second chance! [;

    Bravo, Sart! I now not only applaud you for your photography talents, but for your parental priorities as well.

    AMAZING CHILDREN!

    I have a long way to go until I have children, but this post made me really want to. Not just so I can become a personal stylist to one more person, but tecahing style is another way a parent can give to a child. I just wish my parents didn’t make me have to figure everything out the hard way.

    Scott,

    I love your blog but have never posted a comment. I had no idea you were a father and I love that you are doing this as I just had my 3rd baby. It’s so fun to see happy kids looking adorable and you are doing a fantastic job. Keep it up!

    Claudia’s pose is beyond cute – and not a “pose”, as such, because it looks so natural!

    What a great outfit! I wonder if they make it in my size, too…

    Probably you won’t get to read my comment after all the comments you get daily, but I just wanted to say thank you for your words. Your work speaks by itself, but this post was very refreshing to me. It gave me the idea that what we really want can be accomplish if we only put our passion on it. It was very important to me to discover the way you see the world and how your project began, maybe because now I’m on a stand-by situation trying to make my own project about fashion. You opened up my eyes and gave me the strength to keep working for my dreams.
    Thanks!
