I still like best the earlier post with the girl from NY rocking the trench. She matches the wrinkled texture of the items, and the rest of her look kind of jives with the trench, plus the tattoo poking out. Here these people seem to just have stuck the trench on as an afterthought. Just my opinion…love the redhead's trench style, though.
This set of 3 pictures is amazing and really shows the versatility of the trench–how it can become so personally styled in such different ways. The first one with the black buttons is exceptionally sharp. (just got one)
How is it that a garment that has been around for nearly 100 years, and which came from the trenches of WW I still inspires so much romance and imagination? Thanks to a new generation of stylists at Burberry the trench coat is something for a whole new generation to assign their own meanings and associations to, that will, no doubt, become as much of a signature icon for them as it certainly already is for everyone over the age of 50. For those of us who love these garments and appreciate the versatility and elan which they offer it would seem difficult to come up with a better alternative. (p.s., Trends be damned, the original long length is, in my humble opinion, still the best way to go.)
Sart, all 3 are perfection. I love the trench for this reason: its ability to be complement any and every aesthetic. I took a look at the Burberry Art of the Trench page, and I am so impressed. I have always admired your work, but especially now.
Sarah Taylor from Much Music!! REPRESENT! Love her, amazing style! Come to western Canada Scott, You'll find some amazing style here! Alberta can give you the Canadian version of Cowboy and Vancouver will impress you too!
As a huge trench and Burberry fan, LOVE these! Especially the last pic, she looks fabulous! And I've never seen a Burberry trench (or any trench) worn with a headscarf, she pulls it off effortlessly & so beautifully…
Burberry has been a classic staple of London's East(uptown) and West (down town) End styles for ever. Fascinating to see how the same garments are worn across the globe. Interesting that this post follows the one on cowboy's as I believe the western style style, along with 'classic' work wear ,are two of the greatest contributions that America has made to the menswear.
Elegantly trenched, the gentleman. The twins should be rolling in dirt, riding bikes, climbing trees, sling-shotting pigeons, stealing stuff et cetera rather than sartorial experiments for mum and dad. The lady, just gorgeous.
Mi scusi, I forgot… the Saarinen chair behind the lady is i-c-o-n-i-c. Love it and love retro furnishings. I have a whole apartment decked out in that style. I am glad it persists in commercial and residential situations.
So nice to see Canada, particularly Toronto, represented on your blog. We do have some stylish people up here Scott! I can even find stylish subjects for my street style blog here in London, Ontario, which is conservative with a capital "C".
FINALLY Toronto makes it's appearance on THE most talked about street style blog ever ;) You have no clue how long I've been waiting to see Torontonians on here. Her style is spot on. She represents Toronto quite accurately.
new york gent has good reason to be looking sharp–salesman/fitter for attolini. i accidentally walked into their trunk show last week. that suit looked so good i'm having them make the same one for me.
Wow i wish boys at my age dressed as well as the little kids! that would be great! and Sarah! I'm so happy that everyone can see how beautiful she is and the great style she produces! Thanks for representing Canada!
p.s…. no book signing in Toronto or did i just miss the memo?
Scott, I love your snapshots of the kids/teens from London! So young, so fashionable. Keep em coming, please.
You just know which one of the twins is gonna be the bad ass (or arse, if you may) of the two! Quipped with a lion on his t-shirt, armband, hand coolly grabbing his twin's shoulder and his slick facial expression = Effortless cool kid!
The twin on the right just has sweetheart written all over his face and demeanor.
