The Sartorialist Takes A Roadtrip

After almost a year of posting almost everyday, this week I’m on a vacation/roadtrip.
I have my camera and laptop so I hope to be posting as I go but wireless connection is sometimes tricky. (but it is working right now!)

Please be patience with me for the next week, I have a bag full of great books and magazines to give me new inspiration (a great new book on Cartier-Bresson portraits) and I had a very nice long drive today which gave me time to think about the next year and how i want to grow the blog.

Just a little heads up! If you live in Chicago and you see a guy ,that looks like me, holding a camera please say hi!

When i first started The Sartorialist I used some of my favorite images that I had taken over the previous few years. I posted them but at that time I didn’t have much traffic. To fill some of the void over the next week I will repost a few of my favorites from archive – I’d love to hear what you think of the shots

    Scott . . .

    Enjoy the time away. You clearly deserve a vacation . . . and you ALWAYS need to take some time away to give yourself room to dream . . .

    enjoy your time in Chicago . . and tell Oprah that I said “hi” . . . lol . . .

    Looking forward to the archive photos. I just recently found this site, thanks to the chez pim blog, and it’s become a huge favorite.

    Enjoy your well deserved vacation! When you get back I would like to get your thoughts on the Fall 06 Thom Browne puffy vests.

    Have a great time & stay cool!! Chicago will be a beautiful backdrop for your shots and the people are lots of fun. I look forward to posts.

    Remember that at 2am deep fried Snickers and Twinkies only ‘sound’ good.

    I’ll wager that Alice has a minor heart attack when she hears you’re on your way to the windy city…If I know her well (and I do) she’ll have her head on a swivel looking for you, Sarto…

    Your blog is fantastic. I, too, am addicted. Have a great time in Chicago: a beautiful and charming city with more style than the Midwest gets credit for. I look forward to your pics!

    I’ve been loving this blog.

    I wanted to offer a word of feedback while you’re thinking about where to take it in the future. One of the things I love about this blog is that it contains almost zero additional design elements, apart from those dictated by Blogger.com. That way the clothes and photography are the focus. I’d hate it if you hired a webdesigner to give your site a slick new ‘look’.

    You do what you do so well here and I’m hoping it doesn’t change too much.

    It would be great to run into you in Chicago! I have to warn you that the heatwave is pretty intense here. Stay cool!

    I was wondering when you’d come to Chicago! I’ll have to make sure to dress my best ;)

    Hi, I take the opportunity to say that I’ve followed your blog faithfully for some months now and that your pics (for me) most of all presents and brings a quitness and a coolness that’s most welcome. Thanks!

    Surely Cartier-Bresson will bring inspiration. Enjoy your trip :-)

    phew! thanks scott! i don’t have to worry about picking out the perfect outfit for a week. don’t worry, i’ll still be fashionable, maybe not up to sartorialist standards though.

    thanks for keeping me in-line year round!!!!

    What a coincidence that you are on vacation; yesterday I tried to leave a message telling you not to ‘forget’ to take one. You are doing such a great job writing and taking photographs that I don’t want you to burn out. Congratulations on all of your hard work and amazing power of observation!

    Here in Chicago you have to get some pictures of the traders and runners around the Board of Trade – everything from Saville Row bespoke to post-punk style

    Great time to come to Chicago, although just a little hot. I’ll make an extra effort to look my best this week!

    We couldn’t agree more with LePetitdoodler (hm, wotta name?),
    your blog is COFFEE! Spiritual coffee, that is. A sartorial espresso, and occasionally dolce.

    Enjoy your vacation! I love your blog and appreciate your stylish tastes and discerning eye. Will you take pictures of people while you are here in Chicago? I hope so — we humble Chicagoans have style, too!

    While in Chicago please try to shoot around the Bucktown/Wicker Park area…maybe Pilsen too. Of course the tried and true Oak Street etc. Can’t wait for you to take pictures in my hometown. Please drive carefully!

    Damn! I just left Chicago four days ago! Oh well…I wouldn’t have been a subject of your camera anyway (too tired from driving).

    Have a safe, fun, and relaxing trip!

    Hope you have a great trip. I will look for you on the streets in Chicago. Your blog is fantastic, as always!

    Oh, and an earlier comment is correct-Chicago does have more style than the Midwest gets credit for…
