He reminds me of my 9th grade history teacher, only without the bow tie. He’s very distinguished and the tie is just perfect. It’s a bit subdued as it’s blending with his blue shirt, but it makes a bold statement nonetheless. And his beard! Absolutely charming. And against an excellent backdrop w/ the docks. Brilliant.
Hey… he looks like a cross between a fisherman and my old philosophy professor. I like the tie, though I cannot quite see its texture. Looks real and obviously he himself is intimate with this look- as opposed to something that you hastily picked up as a trend.
And Scott- I wanted to thank you for this wonderful blog. I’m always at my computer, and mostly in quite a drab enviornment, and your blog makes my breaks truly delightful and inspiring. Everyone’s soul needs beauty- and if it’s living breathing beauty on the streets, even better.
Can someone explain to me the male obsession with tie knots?? Is it the female equivalent of cup size or skirt length?? For the record i know i don’t like that knot or that tie, it’s big and fat and looks as if it’s about to fall apart any minute. Sart – maybe you caould help out and invite your correpondants to nominate ‘greatest ties tied of our times’ or something’?
I love the way that brown and blue work together. Nice pairing. And, the big knot works so well with a spread collar. Very nicely done. One minor suggestion. Your tie is too long. Knot the necktie so that the bottom point falls on your belt buckle. This way it won’t interfere when you are buttoning your jacket and it will give a neater look when you are seated.
He seems like a genuinely nice gent. I picture him more in a captains suit, all bright white with that great hat. The Admiral look. This does not drip style to me, but that tie would catch any gravy that did. Nice guy, normal outfit, day in the life. Thank You.
Love the combination of blue and brown, though the tie seems a little wide to me. As mentioned by others, he looks distinguished yet approachable, and he looks as though he belongs in front of the boats. A retired sea captain perhaps?
Anytime is great when someone gets dressed with a little care. So who cares if the ties a bit wide, a bit long, and a bit heavy, or the collar a bit to short (only for that tie) What matters is a smile, sartorial components, (I have an Isaia jacket in that fabric)and a picture on Sartorialist. Not a bad day indeed.
To anonymous 3:53PM: Awesome,that’s the spirit! Who’s looking for perfection? Such a thing does not exist. Only God is perfect. Were humans, tha’s all and that’s great. Ciao. Congrats, Sart, nice shot.
Blue tone-on-tone is a safe bet. The shape of the knot is mostly determined from the width of the tie, I think. He has likely made the knot from the upper more narrow portion of the tie (thereby explaining why it appears long). Anyways, Mr. Ernesto Hemingway looks good.
Isn’t he like a nice wise sailorman??….Maybe he was tired of his life… he decide to wear off his uniform and put on an elegant tie,remembering with its colour his sea and his sky… This picture is so relaxing…
Scott your pictures are brilliant. I would like a little advice though; to create the fabulous photos, the slight blurring in the background and all the other elements in your photos that seem to create portraits with all the magnificence of an oil painting, do you need to use an SLR camera? I have a pretty good 8mp digital camera but I can’t seem to get the thing to produce anything more than a ‘snapshot’.
I love this! His smile is adorable and so heart-warming. My professor dresses like him all the time: very simple but eyecatching with an interesting tie/shirt and color combination. I always want to take a picture of him and send it in.
