On the Street….Carlos Castillo, Madrid

I have to say I love Carlos’ look.

It proves that the right fit doesn’t have to be a tight fit. The idea of a perfectly proportioned but completely rumpled linen suit for Summer is so alluring to me.

This photo makes me want to get a linen suit and go live in this book.

Fashion Above the Neck, New York

This look is really about focus. This young lady knows that the drama of her look is in her asymmetrical haircut, strong contrasting eyebrows, bubblegum pink Chanel lipstick and her quirky tomboy hat.

Let’s not forget that clothes can be just a distracting as they are alluring, and by keeping her clothes very simple she’s creating a clear “take-away” statement for the viewer.

Monday, June 6, 2011’s First Annual Photo Blog Award

The Sartorialist by Andrew Hetherington

I was pleasantly surprised today when I found out that I had been named to’s First Annual Photo Blog Awards.

It’s such an honor to be included with such media giants as the New York Times’ Lens, NPR’s The Picture Show, and’s Lightbox.

I was also happy to see Andrew Hetherington’s blog What’s the Jackanory? also on the list. I’ve known Andy for years; he took the above photo of me way back in 1997. (Yes, I had very long locks back then.) I watched Andy struggle for years to find and refine a visual vocabulary, and then face the challenges of finding people to listen to that voice. It’s great to see that he stuck to his guns and is receiving the respect he worked so hard to achive.

Madrid in Full Color

I really enjoyed myself in Madrid last week, thank you Movistar!

It takes a few trips to an emerging design city like Madrid to start understanding what makes it uniquely beautiful. I think I’m starting to get the groove of Madrid. It’s turning out to be a great city for menswear. Just One, Man, and Patch are all shops I want to explore and report on in the near future.
