Re the cufflink cornucopia: I learned recently, to my delight, that these “nameless” knots are in fact called turkshead links or (even better) turtles…

hmmm… what about just “silk cufflinks”? And besides… I want a collection like that at home ;)

(the young lady in the third last picture)what a lovely smile! :)

What a change of scenes! San Franscisco is such a refreshing place. How is the weather? HM did this catalog thing with the “style” of the area some time ago…kind of staged -of course-.Can you stroll to different areas and capture people with your small camera obscura street fighter?
Just an Observation

Another term thatI am familiar with is “Silk-knots” , never heard of the other two (turkshead & turtles), always happy to learn new terminology…THANKS!

Maria – It’s been grey & overcast all weekend, and it rained last night.

I love the bathrobe. Makes me think of something from Wooster & Jeeves.

In the first shot, where you identify “Mr. Colban (glasses)…” They are both wearing glasses

what a nice presentation you did at saks. i enjoyed your slide show but the lighting made the pictures hard to see.

Love the cuff links. Will you be able to shoot some SF street fashion.
October 16, 2006 at 3:39 pm
i really miss your street style photos.
October 16, 2006 at 4:22 pm
I will be shooting in New York again starting Wednesday!

Hey I know those “Two fabulous young ladies”.
They are, on the left, the talented Marcy Carmack, stylist and owner of Chic Wardrobe Solutions, her dog Arabella, and friend Kim Karp.
October 16, 2006 at 7:11 pm
Wow, just wow..I love it.

I am a guy from SF and I thought that your photo (of the two women with the dog) captured a very distinctive “SF” look reflecting how many SF women dress, especially shopping. Their look seems a bit more subtle and comfortable than their LA or NYC counterparts. I am impressed that you selected this shot. Good eye!
October 16, 2006 at 8:06 pm
yey! re shooting those photos. glad to hear it :)

Thanks for coming to San Francisco – It was great meeting you and some of your fans. It was a great group of (well dressed, of course) people and one of the most interesting events I’ve been to in a while. Anyone in the New York area – go hang out with the Sartorialist tomorrow night if you can. He’s the Man!
October 16, 2006 at 11:37 pm
Mr Sartorialist:I’ll spend le weekend in NYC going to some openings… -with lots of luck I’ll run into you-

Thanks so much Sartorialist for your interview with Jean-Claude, who was charming and a real Old World artisan. It was a treat to see you in person as well and have a chat – the best part of the event the democratic nature of the crowd; young and not so, every race and sex represented. Refreshing!
October 17, 2006 at 2:17 am
I adore the cufflinks! So many colors! :)
October 17, 2006 at 7:08 am
I miss your interview segments that were common in the early months of the Sartorialist. Especially the “most over-rated, and most under-rated” answers.Congratulations on bringing to the public one of the classiest and well thought-out blogs to the web. The bar has definitely been raised by your efforts…may your success continue to flourish.

I always enjoyed wearing Charvet and Battistoni ties because they made such elegant small bottleneck knots.
However, seeing that Mr. Colban has such a large knot I realise I might need some new ties. Or, hopefully I can manage to pull-off looking Retro/RatPack!
October 17, 2006 at 8:21 am
hey HeywoodNow that this is a full-time gig I will be doing more interviews and street shots etc. I have been traveling so much but the next two months are pretty easy.
October 17, 2006 at 5:37 pm
those 2 ladies look great!
October 18, 2006 at 12:51 am
The cute girl with the bright smile…3rd from the bottom…what was she wearing? I love the hair, and the bronze studs on the top. Wish you had taken a picture of the entire outfit!
October 20, 2006 at 7:01 am
Bloodyhell…I hate to admit it but I do fancy their shirts more. Sorry chaps, coloUr matters.

The silk knots are also called ‘Bachelor Knots’. Since bachelors don’t have a wife to help them with cufflinks, these knots could be left in the cuff when the shirt would go to the launders. On the other hand, a nice girlfriend can also be a great sartorial help!
October 18, 2012 at 4:40 am
If you leave these knots in your cuffs, the whole shirt and the other laundry with be in the colour of the knot. Do try it at home.
