It’s intriguing why 80% of The Sartorialist’s models think it’s trendy? cool? upscale? to pose with a smart-device in their hands. I’m sure someone has commented about that before, because it is so obvious.
I, however, find it hedious, a phony statement about their busy modern lives, as if saying “I’m so engaged in my communication with someone else, that I have no time to live the moment of posing for The Sartorialist”. I wish they knew how awesome people look when they are looking at your camera or simply standing there, with no insecurities that make them hold on to an i-phone.
Somehow, this immediately reminded me of the Italian version of Wild West… the hat, the coat, the beard, the dark, rather worn-out stylishness of it. He is armed with a mobile phone these days, that’s all… :-)
