These are really lovely photos. Seems like a happy guy. Such wonderful dress sense.
March 24, 2010 at 10:24 pm
You said one photo only! Now the rest of us will be tempted to send multiples, since they've been rewarded . . .

i want to be him
March 24, 2010 at 10:26 pm
I love the photos and his style. But the the best for me is how he described his dad.Lovely!

Why do I love Isabella?
Such distance from her parenthood.
Would like to meet her.

Brazilians rock!Of course I am bias….
March 24, 2010 at 10:58 pm
he looks so happy in the first picture. I love his smile.
March 24, 2010 at 11:01 pm
I'm proud of being Brazilian. Wonderful pictures, and he feels so happy, that's the best.

What a beautiful entry! Sometimes think that the older generations had more a sense of style, were more formal, perhaps? in dressing for the daily events in life. And, hey I may not be Brazilian, but I think brazilians rock…Can't wait for the FIFA World Cup!!! Go Brazil!!!
March 24, 2010 at 11:19 pm
I absolutely love this. I'm so glad she decided to share these with you and your readers!
March 24, 2010 at 11:20 pm
So wonderful. It's obvious that his sense of warmness and friendliness was captured perfectly in the pictures.
March 24, 2010 at 11:36 pm
I love these photos. I think that the older generation did have to dress differently, for different occasions. There were no leisure suits back then. My mother made all her own clothes, but they were almost all dresses.

dá-lhe Sr. Andrade! Grandes fotos. Parabéns pelo texto simples e tocante, Isabella.
Great pics! I'll blow off the dust of my family albums and send mine, hopefully my pics shall look as awesome as these from this fellow carioca.
March 24, 2010 at 11:55 pm
I love them!
My photo will be sent in tomorrow. It is an amazing story too that I'm sure will touch your heart.

March 25, 2010 at 12:01 am
He has great style! I love these photos and the story behind them. xo

I have never posted a comment before, but I must say I love this contest idea and am looking forward to more entries like this! Thank you for posting and please keep them coming!
March 25, 2010 at 12:12 am
when i first look at the picture i guessed he was from Brazil.i'm very proud.and the text is really beautiful.
March 25, 2010 at 12:51 am
I agree with 'Anonymous': Brazilians rock! :)
What a sweet back-story & great pictures/style…Excellent contest!xx
March 25, 2010 at 1:04 am
what a beautiful man. the first photo actually reminds me of a young che guevara (pre-revolutionary)…there's a photo of him from probably around the same era and same region (latin america)…this might've been a bit earlier. anyway, isabella's father was a very handsome man.
March 25, 2010 at 1:37 am
charming style of the 1920s.
its for your own good
March 25, 2010 at 2:22 am
wonderful. i have a ton of photos of my oma and opa from the 30s 40s 50s 60s. unfortunately they are unavailable to me right now. much more everyday style back then.
March 25, 2010 at 3:00 am
Sart, open a new site, like "The vintage sartorialist". This is a great idea and I am sure you will get so much material (even later from people like me who have to *find* the beautiful pictures which are… uhm, where are they…?
March 25, 2010 at 3:09 am
Yessssss !!! Sepia, classy so good style !!! Sunny Side
March 25, 2010 at 3:28 am
these r fantastic old pics seems to say a story!! i really love it! beautiful
March 25, 2010 at 4:00 am
Gorgeous photos and lovely story!
March 25, 2010 at 4:02 am
They are fantastic photos, when I look at photos of my own father, he always looked stylish from the 1940s through to the 1980s I think because he picked classics and added his own personality. My mother, a very beautiful woman didn't start to look really stylish until she was in her 60s but she always looked fashionable. I think men's clothes are always based on the classics whatever the era

The charming smile that he wears along with his timeless dress sense.

Handsome, stylish, relaxed… Interesting person, beautiful photos.
March 25, 2010 at 6:12 am
if i only had a chance to visit my grandma's place to send you a photo of 3 sisters from istanbul, in 1950s, with full hollywood glamour near Bosphorus. it's my favourite family photo.

I think "happy" and "Brazilian" don't capture it. It looks like a type of love. That second image just knocks me out. Not only is the style impeccable and relaxed but there are a million other things, to love about it.
March 25, 2010 at 6:23 am
Seriously, it captured my heart when i saw these attractive pictures!
March 25, 2010 at 6:30 am
Wonderful photos! Very classy and elegant. Congratulations! Loved it :)
March 25, 2010 at 6:36 am
What charming and elegant style, and what a handsome man. People really dressed better back then! Such a poignant entry, Sart. :)
March 25, 2010 at 6:48 am
So stylish. It's sad to go outside after pictures like this. He's one of a kind.
And I agree with Lord Brummel, new blog just for these kind of pictures!!! There is a whole new world of fashion sense out there.
March 25, 2010 at 7:36 am
I got very happy when I saw this post here. Not only because he is no doubt a very stylish, distintive and charming guy and the pics are great but most of all because I know Isabella. She is one of my best friends ever and reading her post here made me happy because she is herself a very sweet, intelligent and sensitive woman not to say she has a great sense of style herself. Isabella rocks!
March 25, 2010 at 7:49 am
beautiful photos, great idea. Style is something immortal
March 25, 2010 at 7:58 am
My grandmother was also born in 1921 and all her life she was very elegant. Until now, she always thinks about her appearance.
March 25, 2010 at 9:06 am
Fab looks! Really.
March 25, 2010 at 10:15 am
So elegant and smart!
March 25, 2010 at 11:06 am
Very nicely put!! You must really love your father.

A poignant tribute to her father; beautiful words & beautiful photographs . . . You can almost feel the heat from the Brazilian sun in these lovely family heirlooms . . .
March 25, 2010 at 1:48 pm
his best accessory is his smile.
These photos take me straight to the world John Updike describes at the beginning of "Brazil".
I like the criterium of "not being too worried to show off". Very true!
March 25, 2010 at 2:40 pm
It almost makes me cry seeing how jovial and full of life this man looks in every picture! From his crisp outfits to the well coifed 'dos. Bravo, Isabella.
March 25, 2010 at 3:52 pm
Oh reminds me so much of Evelyn Waugh, my all time favorite. In my dreams life still moves at this pace.

March 25, 2010 at 4:03 pm
Belas fotos, belo texto, Isabella.Lembrou meu pai, que nasceu em 1924 também muito bonito e um Bon-vivant.
March 25, 2010 at 6:05 pm
Thank you for sharing your beautiful memories of Mr. Vargas. This aspect of Rio style doesn't seem to exist any longer, and it's wonderful to see your elegant father.
March 25, 2010 at 6:16 pm
this is so wonderful and emotional, really touching.. The pictures are just fantastic, thank you so much for sharing!
March 25, 2010 at 8:41 pm
These are amazing – I LOVE her father's outfit in the second image. It's so lovely to hear her speak of him so fondly as well.
March 25, 2010 at 8:54 pm
Love these pics!! Great vintage feel and love how you have a little story of his history. :) Thanks for sharing them
March 25, 2010 at 10:07 pm
Old photo's are the best. That is why I think I'm going to give up digital and go purely to film.
March 25, 2010 at 11:56 pm
Brazilians, being pretty and elegant since… forever.Sorry, we can´t help it!!

What have the old pictures that make our parents look like movies stars?
March 26, 2010 at 2:43 pm
He seems like such a genuinely happy guy! I love the first photo especially! What a cutie!
March 27, 2010 at 5:53 am
Charming and elegant, we are not used anymore to see such a young man so well dressed!
It's very interesting in the first picture how he left the top button of his jacket open.
March 27, 2010 at 5:39 pm
what a charming, beautiful smile
March 28, 2010 at 6:14 pm
Such genuine happiness – the best accessory for any outfit :)
