HI MR SARTORIALIST,
WELL DONE ON THIS BLOG SITE AND ALL THE PRESS.
QUESTION, WHAT IS MICHAEL B’S DESIGN BACKGROUND?
WHERE DID HE DESIGN BEFORE?

Those frayed shorts are just awesome! An otherwise lounging around look just turned into garden party attire.
And the second photo was just to show off your photography skills, huh Sar? =]

I don’t really like the the look in the first picture, but that suit down below is gorgeous. I also like the suit with the striped shirt and sneaker.

I actually like the images where the model is being groomed, rather then the “action shots”. There is something that I like about a beautiful man being “built” by others that is really interesting.

Michael Bastian used to be the men’s fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman. And, refreshingly enough, he happens to be one of the nicest people in the industry.

Can anyone recommend a few places that carry these slimmer fitting shorts? it’s time to ditch the baggie abercrombies i think…

I like this combination. It’s very classic looking.
But honestly, I have never been in weather where it’s cool enough for a sweater, yet hot enough for shorts.

I’m so happy to see Michael’s work every time you post pics. I grew up in the same town as MB (was friends w/ his little sis) and he taught me how to realistically fray jeans using a pumice stone. That was in the mid 80s — knew he’d do something wonderful w/ fashion.

Buy a pair of jeans in the material, cut, and color you prefer. Cut the legs off (tailor’s shears recommended) about an inch longer than you want them to be ultimately. Best to put them on and mark the line where you want to cut with tailor’s chalk. For the ultimate bottom to be parallel to/level with the ground, the marked line will not be at right angles to the side seams; rather, it will be at an obtuse angle to the inside seam and an acute angle to the outside seam. Those angles will be dictated by the angle of divergence between the inside seams where they meet at the crotch. Anyway, adjust the cut mark until it’s level with the ground. Once the jeans are cut, machine wash them two or three time to fray the bottoms. Then, to even the fringe as on Bastian’s and get to the desired length, trim using a straight edge and the aforementioned tailor’s shears. The legs will continue to fray a bit with washing; but to avoid that you can machine stitch just above the fringe. Oh, screw it. Maybe someone will answer your question about where to buy.

I was done wearing short shorts when I left the Boy Scouts. Unless they truly have the body for it, men should stick to jeans or cotton pants.
