On the Scene…All The Ladies And Gentlemen @ “Gary Cooper: Enduring Style” Book Signing

I want to throw a big thank you to co-authors G. Bruce Boyer and Maria Cooper Janis, Wes Del Val of powerHouse Books, and Steven of Leffot for the fantastic book signing last night.  As you’ll see in the photographs over the next couple of days we had a wonderfully diverse crowd. Preps, Vintage, Tailored, Femme Fatales…it was exactly the kind of party I love to attend, let alone host!  Hopefully this only marks the beginning of a series of parties stretching into 2012 and beyond.

 

Tomorrow you will see a special series of portraits that I really enjoy, taken just outside the book signing. I hope this marks a new direction of photography at thesartorialist.com!

On the Street…..Like Father, Like Son, Milan

I love how casually chic the Ruffini family is.  The way they wear their clothes really exhibits their relaxed nature, it’s so inspiring.  The tailoring doesn’t appear too stiff or uptight, letting the cut and proportions hit it just right.

 

Look at the length of the green shirt Romeo is wearing (top), it’s relaxed, but not sloppy.  The sleeve lengths on Remo’s shirt and jacket (below) are just long enough to reflect sense of ease without looking careless…

 

If you remember, I first ran into the Ruffini clan back in January 2010.

On the Street….Transitional Dressing, New York & Madrid

It’s been unseasonably warm in New York the past couple of days, requiring an entirely new strategy for getting dressed.  I love the idea of mixing the lightness of your favorite summer dress with a chunky cardigan sweater (above) or with your boyfriend’s tweedy jacket (below) for transitional weather. I had posted these photos a while back and think they’re a great example.

 

We’re going to create a new tag called ‘transitional dressing’ that I hope will inspire you on crazy days like this!!

On the Street in Tokyo, Part I

You might remember I was in Tokyo in August; this week’s 8 pm posts will be images I shot for Brother Printer while there.

 

I don’t normally put commission work on the site, but I was given such freedom to shoot what I wanted (aside from two or three local celebrities – like this young lady )  that I wanted to share with you.  They also did a behind-the-scenes video which is pretty cool.

On the Street….Mr Akamine, Tokyo


Alright, it’s too controversial.  I’m just going to spell Tokyo with a “y.”

 

The new series this week at 8 PM will be shots from my recent trip to Japan.
