What?!? He is gorgeous. The dark coat against his pale skin seems appropriate for January–it’s winter. The scarf and gloves are also appropriate for January–it’s winter. If he wore a skimpy little coat and had a winter “tan” he would not be more fashionable, just flashier.
To the first poster, mItt: he might not look extraordinary, but i think he looks fine. After all, dressing in the morning is not a scientific process. You obviously have a very visually analytic eye, but come on!!! This guy matches, has good taste, and welcomes the camera in such a friendly way. What happened to effortless dressing? i’m in the fashion industry and even i don’t calculate how the pockets go with the size of my head.
Good looking man and I’m not gay not that there’s anything wrong with that. Black coat and brown gloves seem off to me, maybe the shoes and trousers would pull it all together. Frankly, black and brown together are a personal style conundrum–I don’t like black shoes–most of mine are brown–but do like black trousers, suits with a black background and black ties.
Aww, a major caveat should be included at the end of all my posts:
“This message has been brought to you by a near-sighted, work-at-home Canadian soccer mom who mostly wears running shoes and track pants just in case she can squeeze in a 10K run before picking up the kids from school. When not in ‘sweat clothes’ she can be seen walking about town looking lost (remember, she’s near-sighted) with way too much MAC makeup on, giving her a resemblance to RuPaul.”
What I think matters not on this gentleman’s undoubtedly jet set life. I’m certain too, that he’s quite nice; the smile alone is affecting.
To Anon 8:17 I think I still shoot a lot of very wonderfully unique people that are not fashion peacocks but you make it seem like it is easy to find those people and it is not. The difference in the blog as it grows it that I now have more time to shoot and I have more images to post so as a percentage the level may be down but I feel I am still capturing the fashion outsiders just as much.
Did you see my shots from Florence Pitti Uomo. The Framemaker series?
What about the Art Director from Milan with the bike.
Hmmm….I think he looks great. His gray scarf complements his ashen brown hair and his brown gloves add a twist to a look that might otherwise be boring had he worn the traditionally “expected” black gloves. Again, the brown and black (or is his coat charcoal gray?) combo causes a stir!
Anon 8:17, I must vehemently disagree with you. I think Sart always manages tio find balance. Sure when he’s in Europe he takes more pictures of the fashionistas, but that’s because he’s in Europe, during the shows!! He always finds the quirky street style in NY and one or two sartotial gentleman of yore, but as he explained, the latter group cannot be easy to fing. I think Sart makes it a point to capture everyday people who have individual style. Many examples spring to mind, but think of the Painter series, the red-bicycle guy in NY-come on!
Oh and to mltt, your views are your own, don’t be ashamed of them and you certainly don’t have to qualify them to anyone. Hence I might respect what anon 8:17 wrote, but just disagree with it, a lot!
I’ve never seen anything on this blog that was mediocre. Not to say I’ve loved everything (three words: monkey fur sleeves).
But the beauty of this blog is, first, there is some style inspiration for everyone and second, it encourages people to stop and consider the details… to open our minds to the little things that make life interesting and which we rarely note.
There’s nothing more fascinating than viewing style through the eyes of someone trained to look for visual interest.
So for me, it doesn’t matter who you shoot: fashionistas to fascinating old men, it’s all about your eye and the way you’ve expanded my grasp of style.
Mandy – These are great! You captured her opisenalrty very well. I love all the different colors and outfits. She has beautiful blue eyes and you can see them well in many of these. These are the best kid pics I have seen. Can’t wait to see the rest!
