    That scarf is amazing! The blazer is also really cool! The length of the blazer is what makes it amazing to me. The lady to the side is also cool too! The marines style jacket with the navy blue and white striped tee shirt is incredible! It's so cool watching the way others dress!
    check out my trendy blog!

    This the sexiest adrongynous look I've ever seen. Scott – I heard you were just in Toronto (my city). Am heartbroken I couldn't make it out to your book launch – but I WILL buy your book when it's out. I'm a slobbering fan. Hope you found some serious sartorialism worthy of your blog in TO! Congrats on your book and continued success.

    Your fan,

    I'm not entirely sure about the clothes themselves, but I like how the scarf reminds me of feathers and that fits the look.

    Francois Hardy wore striped t-shirts like this in early 60s.

    Anywhere else in the world the guy wearing the frilly scarf would have been jeered and scoffed at. I know parts of the world where he would have been chased by angry throngs of mediocrity.

    black and white has become passe since may, but glad the trend is catching on overseas.

    if you were to do it right, i prefer light bottoms and dark top (reverse), but that'll catch on as well.

    White blazers are so chic on the right person. Love the look.

    I think true fashion is neither IN, OUT, or Passe. I think people who pay attention to trends…and dress accordingly ARE passe. Sure there are bits and pieces that you can take from each season, but when you dress according to what YOU like…this is having true style.

    Many people who don't know what true style is pay attention to seasonal trends and act as if they are the 10 commandments.

    The Sartorialist does an amazing job of finding individuals that do it right.

    I noticed this androgynous lady has been shot by the sartorialist a number of times.
    Does anyone know who she is?

    She is Bettina. And she's been dressing 'Admiral Nelson meets Francoise Hardy' for at least a decade. Signature Bettina look, especially in the fall.
    She works for a guy called Lee. And those who know – they know.

    Black and white is always chic. I particularly love the sailor inspired stripes and military-esque blazer.

    Love the classic, classic military jacket on the left. Perfect with the striped shirt – sailor v. general in two different time periods.

    love the look, real fashion (as opposed to impractical).
    everyone, please ease up on the criticism of people not wearing high heels! they might look good, but they are quite dangerous to the health of your feet and back. not everyone can wear them (and when they get older, some will be sorry they did).
