This is the worst look. Hate the coat, hate the skirt. The proportions make her look like she is drowning. The purse is out of proportion as well. This is a huge miss.
By the way, I know very few people who smoke in this city. You have to remember that at this time of year if you are taking pictures outside, you are mostly going to get smokers. When it warms up you will have less I bet.
Oh please, The Sartorialist, do not blackout people’s cigarettes. The whole point of your blog is for us to look and appreciate all things SARTORIAL which you have photographed. If people cannot look past a cigarette and concentrate on what your main objective and purpose is, then why bother coming here if you are only going to notice the cigarettes and NOT the clothes. The mind truly boggles…
LOL at the black box over the cigarette. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. Like I said, the only people crazy enough to hang outside in the winter are smokers. It’s just distracting but not that big of a deal, imo. You shouldn’t start editing what you photograph based on the cigarettes.
I totally appreciate your eye on the coat against the wall. And I love seeing a whole variety of images, some I like, some I don’t. I love that. That’s what makes this site so great.
Keep up the good work. I only wish we could see a hundred pics a day, I’m so addicted to this blog!! Great job!!!
Concerning the proportions I must say I kind of like the smalish bag. It enhances her already subtle manneristic features. And the pattern juxtapostion really makes this images stand out. Kudos to you, sartorialist!
I agree about the proportions, they are not quite suitable. She should have paired the full shape of the coat with something slimmer on the bottom, etc. Whatever. However, the plaid of the coat is great, how it subtly fades in and out of itself, it reminds me of a vintage version (an original version) of the plaid that Mcqueen used to such great advantage in his ‘stable’ show – was that S/S 2006? A/W 2005? Anyways, that.
sartorialist! please… why do you include these super put-together, stylin’ guys and then get these uninspiring, frumpy women. please! socks and sandals? a huge plaid coat? 40 pounds of mismatched vintage? Yuck. I want chic, please. Not just “different.”
