For a non-academically-trained photographer (at least, I think), Sart has an incredible eye. This is the photographic version of a Van Gogh or Cezanne – the pose, the loaf of bread, the everyman quality. I just love it and sent a note to my mom to be sure to look at this particular photo. Thanks for bringing a little beauty to my Thursday.
Hello, Mr. The Sartorialist Im a chilean journalist very intested in fashion from a sociology point of view. I have to say that I find your blog outstanding specially for all the gentlemen pictures that appear. Thanks for doing this and for giving us a page that makes you look everyday for new pictures.
A number of years ago, I stayed with my boyfriend’s cousin and her boyfriend at their apt Le Marais. We stayed with them for 10 days and had only two meals outside the home. The boyfriend taught math at University, was a socialist and boy, he loved his bread. He was very loyal to one particular boulongerie and was very specific about the time to go. After that time, well, you should just forget it. These guys would have a lot to talk about, namely the best baguette in Paris. Sorry for the lengthy comment but this guy just made my day and brought back a lovely memory. Thx Sart!
I love that your blog isn’t simply about photos of nice outfits… this is beautiful portraiture! He might not be in the loveliest of clothes, but you captured the right attitude, confidence, grace–and that’s 98% of style isn’t it?
please post your style.com photos here after it’s had a run there – i don’t have time to search for your photos there anyway! besides, i much prefer the elegant & minimal look & feel of your site (& of course the photos!) it’s like a little piece of fine chocolate each day :-) thanks
He has a certain nonchalance, an arrogance, that permeates his very self. The work-wear, splattered paint, and worn out cloth is a look seen all over the western world, recognisable, familiar… and yet… his pony tailed hair, breton cap and chiseled good looks say something else, convey another individual swept by time and daubing paint onto large framed canvases. This makes me want to know more….
