I notice you rarely choose older women [50 yrs of age on] By the way I myself am 27. Why are all the women you choose 20 somethings. Is it not possible for a fashionable woman to be older or must you be pretty AND young to be considered fashionable :(

yes. thoroughly. being 30 means being dead. sorry

I think there are many older women in the archives. However, I don’t see anything in the least bit fashionable about this younger woman. Really do not like this look in the least.

I agree with the above observations. Men seem to get on the blog if they are well dressed. Women seem to appear if they are pretty, with their fashion sense being secondary.

Check the archives – especially feb, – I’m proud that I shoot a much wider range of ages, sizes, colors and economic backgrounds than any mainstream fashion magazine.
Besides, have you ever asked a woman, over 40, on the street, to take her photo? it is a little more difficult than you think.
Finally, I have over 15 years in the designer fashion market (almost all in women’s) – I am very comfortable with my eye for women’s fashion – there are no bimbo’s on this site – they are the stylish girls and women that capture my eye for whatever reason.

i agree you need to go into the archives. i have seen more “older” beautiful women pictured here than anywhere in a magazine or similar site. stunning older women that make me realize that it’s never over. my comments are so over the top but whatever.

…as the blog gets popular, the complaints come rollin’ in.

The cardigan is very good and fits.The belt buckle has a rocket ship on it. How cool is that?On her head (I think) are a pair of those folding goggles found in air force survival kits. They are just a flat piece of clear plastic and an elastic. Very cool.I think she could do better than that t-shirt, but I see a lot of style for very little money.

Um, Sartorialist, I personally don’t want to see any women over 35 or over 125 pounds (and that’s too much…) But what I’d like to see is a few more blondes…. can we arrange that?

I love her outfit, especially the cardigan. Cute.

I am a mid fifties woman and I very much enjoy this blog.
There are many older women. Most of the young women are wearing items which are appropriate for all ages.
You are right, Mr. S., there are more sizes,shapes, etc. than in any fashion magazine. Even we who shop at the discount and mass merchandisers can emulate many of these looks.
I read (in NYT) that Walmart sells more clothing than any other retailer, something not often addressed in the fashion press. I bet some of your subjects spend very little on clothing yet still have great looks.

I love her colour combination of the outfit.

An interesting dialogue is worth comment. I think that you must write extra on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject however typically people are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

Its such an old debate…getting boring yet? It is to me. This blog is not a measure of fashionable clothing. Its just things that visually interest Scott. That is as it should be. Of course, Scott has his own view. So there are equally wonderful things out there that simply don’t interest him. I think he takes pictures of many, many older women. But if you think they are under represented, do not tell Scott what to do. He is doing what he wants with his own blog. YOU go and start your own blog. Then and only then you can have a say in what goes into it. You don’t own this one, obviously. No one is stopping you…
