Isn’t it a bit impractical to wear a silk scarf in winter? It is not a very warm thing to wear. I have several, but I can’t really use them by day or night in the colder months, when something made of a fine wool is more useful. How do you solve this problem?
Sart, i love it when you post this kind of subject because it’s something i don’t get a chance to see in my everyday life AND you know them in a way so that you can select so well; i feel your pictures’ quality is at its best too around this guys… (eventhough they are all amazing, don’t know if i mentioned it before..jeje). :)
I really like how the 2nd picture (gentleman with the suede boots) and the last picture (blue patterned scarf) make tweed look fresh and contemporary and not “classic” (see: outdated). And both do it in different ways, but achieve the same great result- fitting tweed into their overall look and not having it stand out.
I love EVERYTHING about the first picture. The red sweater, the beige tennis shoes, his age, his youth, how polished he looks but yet how casual his attitude is… he embodies so many beautiful contradictions.
I totally agree with anon 12:54. I love the photo of the first gentleman. He still has a fire in his eye and is so trendy/youthful, has some personality in his outfit. I love it! I hope to maintain those qualities when I get older. He has the best face! What an outfit!
white jeans…ok, I am a chick, but a smooth dressing chick I wear white jeans in winter in the south…all winter with a black turtleneck and always on my Harley… your blog is something to look forward to daily
This is why I love the Sartorialist so much: these photos and then Anon 5:30′s comment about Orlando Suero’s fotos of the 1950′s Kennedys in Georgetown. I had to google image Orlando Suero and then also see that Suero photographed Antonio Carlos Jobim in 1963…talk about style and zeitgeist.
I think I commented on the second pic when you put it out the 1st time but I’ll comment again…Brown suede boots or brogues with grey flannels and a blazer/sportscoat is the pinnacle of elegant dressing for men. If you do it right- like this gent in the pic – it goes from monday morning meeting to sunday brunch.
Never leave without a scarf in autumn and winter. With a good scarf (wool off course!) you don’t need a coat in colder weather conditions. You just can walk around in your jacket. Very handy. And it looks great (well at least on these gents).

I find wearing a heavy silk scarf in warm enough for winter. Most silk scarfs in the US are quite light weight so search for a heavier one like a Hermes or you can double two of them up.
I know this comment is slightly late, but I didn't have the opportunity to write anything yesterday. I just wanted to share how perfectly WONDERFUL these images are! My father was a carpenter while I was growing up, and we had a wood shop in our backyard where he would work during the days. I used to go out and visit him several times during the day, and I would do everything from play with the shavings and extra wood to give him pictures to "decorate" his shop with. I even remember a couple of clown ones! 2945abc45 0425
