On The Street…..UPDATE The Fashion Editor, Nolita

One of the things I think is nice about The Sartorialist is the ability to see variations on a personal style. I shot this gentleman last month and ran into him again yesterday. I love how the pieces are very different but still very much a reflection of his style. I think consistency is a big part of style.

    Minus his boots with that outfit, I like this guy.

    This may be case in which one would profitably work to diminish the sense of lean and long, rather than to emphasize it via slimmest cut, not to mention ground-grazing doggy!

    I can’t shake the feeling that this guy has some serious tension in his neck, with his shoulder blades hunched up around his ears … mostly it’s the bird’s nest scarf, but the tight, short jeans contribute too.

    Ouch, Anonymous at 8:10pm; that was a bit nasty, wasn’t it? My only complaint is that he isn’t smiling…I’d take a smile over a scowl any day. Also the shadow falls on his lower legs and creates the illusion that he is standing on his tippy toes. As far as the look goes, it’s great. He owns it, it works, it’s fabulous.

    With aviators and a gauloise instead of the pup, he’d be even hotter, no?

    Perfect…but for the boots.French?
    Sure;he emphasises his slimness,as any Frenchwoman would do.

    Hm. I actually like these skinnies better, though, theoretically, they look like straight-leg denims on him. Dunno why the appeal. Probably the colour or the wash. He carries himself well and the doggie is precious.

  15. positively the same dame

    i wish i looked this good while walking my dogs — i’m lucky if i get out the door wearing two shoes that match and something to disguise the fact that i’m a nightgown. but i do have the same bag.

    This guy looks like a good-looking woman and I don’t know if that’s a bad thing. Androgynous, feminine, masculine, who the hell knows anymore!

    Is it the people you pick for your photos or are most of the people in New York blessed with ‘chicken legs’. Most seem to be devoid of all muscle or bulk.

    Visually interesting and “Yes” Trainspotting does come to mind.

    I would have loved to see his legs closer together to get more a sense of the “inverted pyramid” effect that his ensemble gives off.

    And thank you for not carrying the animal, kind sir.

    I hope that his hunched stance is just temporary and not permanent, he looks cold and worn out…

    This does not look like the same guy…at all. This most recent pic is utterly tasty.

    He likes the “Big on Top” look, I see. However, I’m not sure it’s the best on him. For example, for today’s look I would’ve liked to see a knit with a slightly smaller gauge so that he didn’t appear so bulky (for both outfits, it’s like he’s trying to convince me that he’s not skinny from top to bottom when he obviously is.)

    Those pants in the update, they look like Dior Homme’s new ultra-flared wool dress pants. Can anyone confirm/deny?

    Re the update, first, happy to see that the dog has maintained its classic look.

    Still not overly enthusiastic about the guy, however; pants are droopy and the bulging pockets on the top, which falls near the waist, do nothing for the line…..

    I’m not feeling the trousers at all. It’s his ectomorphic body type. The denim/leather outfit better suits him. He looks like a young Crispin Glover. This look is common, but he seems like a nice young man and he pulls it off, I guess.

    Hmm Sart, I can’t agree with you about the consistency, except for the emphasis on the long and lean line. And the doggy!

    In the new photo, he looks much softer: more refined and feminine. In the old, he’s showing his more masculine and rough side. They seem like different people to me.

    He looks good both ways though.

    Nobody answer me last time, when I asked if somebody knew which jeans was he wearing. How about now?

    I am totaly digging his new and improved look. So much more “relaxed” than before and really stylish.

    His new look solves his ‘neck tension’ image that was bothering me in the first shot.

    Heck, even his haircut is more youthful. Total upgrade.

    I agree, consistency is part of one’s personal style. I like the ‘cleaness’ (or simplicity) of his outfit in the most recent photo.

    hmmm. to be honest. I feel this look is way to affected . I maybe appreciated it a few years ago, but now its just to severe and hipster. cool dog though

    Like the guy’s look when he is in the masculine jeans look but not so much in the other ensemble–he looks rather uncomfortable and not as confident.

    I prefer this outfit/look to the last one. Nice pairing of lengths in jacket and trousers here.

    He still looks cold and underfed, though.

    The green sweater in the first picture is YSL. i have the same one in black!

    I love how he wears his with all the buttons buttoned up and the collar flipped down, opposed to the traditional one or two buttons.

    Nolita = North of Little Italy. It’s east of Soho and west of the LES (Lower East Side). South of Houston and, um, north of Little Italy. All in downtown Manhattan.

    I don’t see any consistency in the two outfits. Unless you want to include the dog and then that’s it.

    More feminine than ever, but he has a great sense of style, clearly! And I honestly think he’s very comfortable in his own skin, in both photos, and no daschund can replace that as a great accessory!

    It’s eery how his stanse is identical in both photos, the proportions are the same despite… tight jeans vs. loose trousers. The short jacket/sweater.
    These CONSISTENT YET DIFFERENT looks are probably the reason Christopher Niquet is such a great stylist.

    Love the picture with the scarf! The latest one…not much. It is like he was one person on the first and another on the second: the hot, adventurous one on the first, and the opposite one on the second. The femenine connection: only if you equal femenine with effete.
    Definitely the scarf works for his figure and attitude.
    The dog is just a must!

    I love how he is able to wear two completely different looks and yet maintain his own style. I think that is what’s meant by consistency and the dachshund is the perfect accessory.

    It’s kinda slim but I like it, it doesn’t look like a skinny jean at all, it looks more like a straight leg denim jean, with the short jacket and the scarf, it looks very nice to me, comfortable also, specially, when the spring starts.

    What to wear whilst walking the pooch is always a fashion dilemma. It is hard to look truly chic when carrying…a poop bag dispenser. Louis Vuitton just doesn’t make them.
