I've been looking to the oldest posts of The Sartorialist, the ones from 2005 and 2006. No doubt, today's shots are far more beautiful and well-found.
However, there's something that, in my opinion, isn't as good as it used to anymore. Years ago your photographs came usually with a text explaining the sense of the picture, the images and feelings they evoked to you: explaining what made a look more than simple good taste about fashion.
That made the comments of every shot (not many of them, just about 10 or so for each one) turn in some cases into interesting dialogs about the conceptual side of fashion.
Don't you miss that, now that most of the hundreds of comments you get every week just say how much they love a certain detail of the clothing or how pictorical the photograph is?
Well, all I want to say is that, from my point of view, a blog that has got fame under the philosophy of catching that "something" in some people's way of wearing, beside "official" fashion and style rules, should make use of the support of the words, the only way to tell the world what you really mean with a picture.
Love your work anyway, and I'm sure you have something to tell, I just would love to see it writen.
Yes ! I am looking forward to throwing my colored socks on. With the snow and ice back on the east coast, I am sticking to my weathered chukkas. I have ruined to many leather shoes with the salt thrown down.
A refreshing boost with winter still blowing around.
I love how he pulled this whole outfit together, the denim with flannel no less. And then the accessories are so nice– pops of colour indeed. Mustard yellow and a beautiful scarf. This spring seems to be about how to accessorize.
The mixture of colors and fabric is one of the few joys of winter.Just look at those wonderful socks paired with the shoes and trousers. We should all do our part to brighten dreary days like this gentleman does.
