    That woman in the second photo is amazing! The components of her ensemble appear so ordinary at first glance, and then suddenly they come together with such grace and elegance. Gorgeous.

    Sartorialist is amazing. These images are so natural- the best thing about these pictures are the facial expressions, the fact that these people don't see fashion as "stuck up", it is a natural process, thank you for your work.

    the man on the left is the whole point of the picture

    Sig. Blue & Green – buy some summer socks or wear a lighter shoe.

    Proper emperors news clothes turn out this whole sockless movement.

    Don't misunderstand me, with a moccasin, a driving shoe, a pump – all good. But with a heavy Derby, Oxford etc. the balance is thrown as too as the function is being ignored.

    The suede blouson jacket looks fantastic – we seldom see men wearing them here in the U.S. – yet another example of how we ought to take style cues from the Italians…

    Those first two guys have got it completely right! For the woman, I think the idea is good, but it doesn't turn heads nearly as much as the mens' outfits do.

    The guy on the right with the jeans on looks so cool and composed. Despite me thinking he's not the main intention of the picture; the chilled out aura he seems to radiate makes him stand out even more to me.

    And the lady's idea of using her sweater to add a bit of flavour to her dress is simply amazing.

    WWWAAAHHHH!That's exactly the thing I like to see on this blog:well dressed people ,as Anitane said, so natural.The look of the men in Italy is wonderful and how inspiring (and inspired too).Fashion is about REAL people and not zombies-models on cold runaways.
    Ladies I got a question for you.Do you think sartorialists are more attractive guys?

    I finally realized it. I have a problem with navy blue. It has always been… too close to black and clashes with it. But I'm seeing on this site that navy and black are being mixed. Sorry, can't deal with it… yet. Also, navy has airs. It's too crisp for it's own good. See, I've got a problem with it. Not that I love black all that much.

    So with these two pics I prefer the bottom one because the blue is dark, but it's not navy. And I love the combo of that gorgeous green and blue. Really great! I'll look for pieces to do that with.

    People are suggesting the man in the jeans should have been left out of the picture, however the juxtaposition of the two styles is what makes them both work so well.
    Also, that picture perfectly sums up what makes this blog so good – capturing the different levels at which style exists. Great!

    Oooooo-la! Sir Sartorialist you've outdone yourself. Usually I think you do men much better than women. What I mean is, the men you capture are stunning icons of style; the women (for me) often don't quite suffice. But this woman is my favourite ever. Divine green dress, the best jumper-round-the-waist technique ever (I've already used it!) and the yellow/gold is picked up in her strappy shoes and specs. Bravissimo!

    Maybe the green dress wearer is a cyclist? I tie my cardigan that way around when i'm wearing skirts or dresses, as it stops my skirt from riding up. Not quite so elegantly though, must try harder.

    Either way, glossing over your snapshots is always a pleasure. Thanks.

    it´s unbelievable i loved this jacket from the first moment i saw it on this blog. not long time ago i found this jacket in milano in my size. it´s from lesentier.
    i wore the jackets only a few times in front in the mirror and closed the buttons and then all the button seams unfasten. it was so an expensive jacket and such a poor quality :-(
