On the Street…Matt, Atlanta

Garance and I LOVED Atlanta and Savannah.

We will be going back again very soon, hopefully before the end of this year. The people were so cool and so chic. This first trip was like a recon to get prepared for our return. Also, thanks to everyone that attended my exhibit opening, that was fun.

I really loved the Sid Mashburn shop (Matt works there). They offer a great edit of fashion and style items for gentleman. I will have to go back to do a more in-depth report on the shop but if you are in the area I recommend checking it out.

At this very moment I’m in Milan (where I do most of my shopping) but I keep thinking about a great “special edition” Barbour coat that I saw in Atlanta, My world is turning upside- down!

    So excited you all had a wonderful time here! Southerners are truly a unique aspect of the states. Where did you visit?

    Hi Scott,

    Glad you two loved the South, knew you would. Hope you two come back again soon. We have incredible taste and a very strong culture of art and creativity here.

    See you soon~ Kathleen

    Here's the problem with no socks: It takes a perfectly good "I'm not trying, I really am this good" look and reduces it to posturing.

    I really like how comfortable his suit looks. And I think the colors of the tie and shoes go great together. He seems incredibly relaxed in the picture and his suit mirrors that. Great shot!

    As a born an raised Southerner, I think you have really captured the "classic" modern Southern style with this picture. Though there are many more styles to love down here, and while this one isn't my own, this style is the epitome of the well dressed "good ol' boy" from down South. From the bushy haircut, blue striped shirt, red tie, golden belt buckle, and no socks, this is the classic look, though exceptionally tailored. I respectfully disagree with the poster above who said that no socks is posturing. Down South it's oppressively hot this time of year, and it's extremely common to go without socks in nice shoes. Glad y'all liked it down here, hope y'all come back down and stay a while.

    The suit is nice, the shoes are nice, but with the crop and no socks they look a little clownish. Unless his last name ends in a vowel he could stand to dial it down a notch.

    My best friend keeps insisting that he would look better with black shoes and belt because he's wearing blue pants. I would like some opinion on this. Obviously, not being a guy, I don't know much about the belt-shoe color coordination, but I think the gentleman here looks so much nicer with those brown shoes than he would in black ones. I'm curious to see what others might think of this.

    I was about to get hypercritical just now, this being the internet and all that. The oh-so-trendy sockless look? Pshh, what are you trying to prove kid? Fix up your tie! But I caught myself.

    This guy is better dressed than 99.8% of the population. More flair. Better fit. The lot. But more than anything, look at his body language. He could give a a **** what I or anybody else could possibly say or think about him. Hand in pocket and drink in hand, Sunny Southern afternoon. Who could rain on his parade? This man is his own. And what's more stylish than that?

    Hey Scott…..so what does this special edition look like. I might have seeen someone sport one this weekend here in Dallas. It looked quite fitted and not as long as most Barbours are…..and there were some littel details changed with the outside….

    I was quite intrigued as I do not own any Barbour…and waiting for the right one to come along.

    Atlanta cool and chic??? That indeed turns MY associations of the city upside down. I wonder if you saw more of the romanticized South, rather than the real Atlanta. Savannah embodies that romanticism however, true. Makes me glad to think though that, at least clothes wise, Atlanta may be more than just air-conditioned isolationism.

    I love everyone's comments regarding their disdain for the "played out" no socks thing. For everyone's information: this look has been something of a standard in the South for decades and has little to do with any current prevailing trend. Say what you wish about the length of his pants, but the whole business of wearing shoes without socks is sort of a classic Southern thing, and will not disappear any time in the near future.

And over the past year and they've opened my eyes to a bigger picture of fashion and its individual interpretation. Sid and his team capture the meaning of true southern hospitality and make you feel welcome from the minute you step into they're store.

    I am so glad you loved my state. Georgia is amazing and the style is so unique.

    Also, happy five years – I've been following since my senior year in high school (I am a senior in college now)! :)

    I went to SCAD for college, in Savannah! It's absolutely lovely, very picturesque and charming! My favorite thing is the clash between the SCAD kids' and the Savannians' style.

    Please post more of your photos from Savannah! Would love to see it from your point of view.

    Congrats on the 5 year anniversary of The Sartorialist!

    i'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! like many others, i was going to recommend athens to you, but i decided not to because your schedule seemed a bit tight. if you come back to georgia, though, hit it up! it's my favorite town for people-watching.

    Also, enough already with the complaint of "no socks look" with dress shoes. I ALWAYS wear Shoe Liner socks from Johnston and Murphy or the No Show Loafer Liner Sock from Gold Toe. Feet stay fresh, shoes NEVER smell. The breeze is great on the ankles. You haters should try it. Liberating really.

    Beatles style was the first thing that came to me–but not quite so naive–makes it look great.

    Of course Atlanta is fabulous! On your next visit, check out Virginia Highlands if you haven't already. Cobble-stoned streets and little chic shops…

    Also…Charleston, SC is a must-see. So if you like Savannah, you will love Charleston.

    Also…if you need your real Italian espresso fix. Hit up Cafe Intermezzo in Atlanta. I just moved here from France and its the only suitable cafe in that huge city.

    Though its nestled in a little luxury shopping center off and not on a cobble-stoned street, it is adorable. I think it offers about 100 different types of tea and coffee.

    But again, the coffee is legit.

    Anyone who makes Atlanta seem trendy deserves a biscuit and gravy…but how do those leather shoes not blister without socks?

    I'm becoming increasingly fascinated with the idea of double monk strap shoes lately. On this fellow though, I find they jump out a bit too much: the large shoe size combined with skinny high-water trousers results in a silhouette less harmonious than it could be. If he were to keep the trousers as they are, penny loafers (perhaps in a burgundy shade) might be better (untraditional, but so is no socks).

    As always though, attitude makes or breaks an outfit. The rest of the ensemble is spot-on, and his nonchalant demeanour carries it through, even with the loud shoes.

    Thank you so much for your visit to SCAD – Atalanta! I really enjoyed hearing you and Garance talk and I know that everyone else did as well. I was so excited to hear that you were making a surprise visit to see us and I'm so glad that I went. Please come back soon because we would love to have you!

    OK, this is just perfect. Is his tie on backwards? Because I love that. Also the peeking watch with the wristband that mirrors his belt = amazing. I'm still not in agreement with the sockless look, think he could have looked better with black socks to hide the tiny flash of skin below his trousers, but everything else is just great. His expression and posture especially.

    He has this wise, intriguing to him. Like he is going to smoke cigars with my grandfather in Britain. and then come back and do something naughty.. love the shoes

    To echo a few comments above, guys wearing shoes without socks is common in the south (even in the mountains of WNC). This may be a wider new trend these days, but it is nothing new to us.

    This is a great look. The shoes with no socks is not a fashion fad here in the south. It was a common look back in the 80's among my Florida and Georgia college friends. No socks with loafers or deck shoes in summer is a common look here in Atlanta.
