Crazy Week, Big Week

The weather has been a big pain this week – it rained almost everyday so it has been really frustrating trying to shoot outside this week but thanks for your patience.

Good news part 1 Yesterday I spent the whole day editing the video project and I’m really excited about it. Again, it is still early and it may or may not workout but I am cautiously optimistic.

Good news part 2. Next week starts my work full-time on The Sartorialist!

Good news part 3 It looks very possible that my good friends at GQ will add London to my upcoming European trip.

    Full time? than it means you were part time before, Sarto, you are pretty amazing. Good luck with your full time job.

    Sartorialist, I love your spontaneous shots of real people in NYC wearing beautiful clothes and looking so stylish. Add to the photo your description of the encounter and your comments on their outfit and what you get is a completely original statement that will never be duplicated by anyone else. Since I like this style of yours I am disappointed to learn that you are getting all famous now and going to fashion shows etc. I know you love attending these things, and it’s a great opportunity for you, but to me, it just means more photos of professionally beautiful people on runways wearing clothes that most people will never wear, which you can see in any fashion magazine. I hope you maintain your personal style and perhaps continue to show us scenes of the stage painter wearing the scarf with flair, etc. and perhaps an anonymous person you saw having coffee at a cafe, dressed beautifully.

    London will be awesome for you b/c it really is up there with Tokyo for ‘unique style’ …

    Believe me, my favorite shot and the one I talk about most was the painter shot at Calvin Klein.

    If anything these new assignment give me more time to shoot characters like him all over the world not just New York. I have been in fashion for 16 years so the shows are not new to me I just have not done them as a photographer.

    To Francois
    Yes this was very part=time. I think you would be shocked at how little time I had to do this, usually only two days a week but broken up into a few hours here or there. Now it will be full-on so watch out!

    Scott, may I ask what your other, more full-time gig is/was? Have always assumed that the blog was “avocational”….

    …and now that it’s full-time, well, I’m worried about how you’ll put more Lidforts on the table….

    Just thought I’d let you know what a Sartorialist addict I am. I positively love this website…it’s my first check every morning. Thanks thanks thanks to you.

    Sart, would you like to meet some of your Italian fans in Milan- caffe’ Cova via Montenapoleone- for coffee? You choose the day and time, we will be there! ……I know your days in Milan will be crazy.. no time at all…

    juest a question, how it can be full-time if you dont even have google adsense on your blog? whats the new thesartirialist business model. bigups from warsaw/poland, thanks for inspiration (but you mislead me with that milan coverage, one week spent there showed me that the city is a fashion disaster as far as young people- older men are much better looking wardrobe-wise).

    I am sure we will see the “real people” again during/after the fashion shows. The shows provide the inspiration, after all.

    I predict that we’ll start seeing manly scarves/ascots with sequins, once The Sartorialist sports his. Very cool choice!

    There are a few blessed people in the world who get to earn their living doing what they would do for fun…congratulations on becoming one of them! Your work speaks for itself and I’m glad you’re getting to take this step. More (fashion) power to the people! ;)

    I love what you do and I am excited about the new developments. I would like to ask you some questions about your 16 year career in fashion, but I’m having trouble accessing your email through the link. Could you provide it in a response? Thank you.

    I will look out for you in London, when you came to Europe before I was a bit disappointed you didn’t get to come here. It definitely has the most developed and interesting street style compared to Paris and Milan. Have a great time at the shows, I’m looking forward to all your pics. It’s so exciting now to see how this is growing for you and I agree: full time doing what you love is the way to live!

    London will be tight if you come. Check out Camden Town, Hoxton, High St. Ken, Carnaby Street, Covent Garden and King’s Road to name a few for some great shots.
    Oh yeah, musn’t forget the City and Canary Wharf for those bankers and lawyers in their suits…

    Congrats on the onward-and-upward arc! Very much enjoy daily dose of your discoveries over breakfast.

    What with the wider economic horizons and all, you might want to bring an assistant to London. While you pan for the gold nuggets of personal style for S’ist, the assistant can fill whole albums with well-intentioned, if unhealthy-looking, youths sporting the ill-considered, ill-fitting and badly made. If it weren’t for England’s provincial towns, this city would be the world capital of the shouldn’t-be-bare midriff and the just-because-you-saw-it-on-the-telly-doesn’t-mean-it-looks-good-on-you top.

    Keep up the good work!

    I like the fashion of the people…
