On the Street…..10th St., New York

My favorite purchase from the Korea trip: raglan-sleeve, puff-lined, green-heathered wool coat from ts(s) bought at the great new shop in Seoul called Beaker.

    I like. And the bike too. It’s great to see YOU on your blog!

      Agreed. Perhaps it is my voyeuristic nature, but I always love to see the camera turned on the photographer. It takes a certain type of person to always be on the dark side of the picture, so to see you in full light is lovely.

        What an extremely wise observation, 3F’s. Yes, the photographer, the director, the showrunner…these types often revel in their anonymity. Its an interesting thing to see them in the limelight.
        I have always wanted to ask; What are the 3 F’s? Fashion, Fun and Fundamental goodness?

    if it’s cold enough for that coat, I’d suggest socks with those shoes

    As a Chicago girl, although I love the coat et al., I can’t fathom not wearing socks when it’s cold enough for gloves!

    • barbara

      November 27, 2012 at 3:26 pm

      Yes, I have wholeheartedly to agree with you!

      Perhaps it is time to see the pracitioner of chinese medicine and have a look at the triple warmer meridian…?

      but the coat is in fact great :-)

  7. Adam

    November 27, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    Love it… and great shoes!… but no socks? The no-socks look is forgivable in warmish weather, but it seems incongruently silly (pretentious?) when it’s cold enough outside to wear a wool coat, scarf, and gloves. Just sayin’. Otherwise, I like the outfit a lot.

      He’s probably wearing invisible socks from JCrew..

    • Dominik

      November 28, 2012 at 3:29 am

      I agree, this is just silly. Never mind the fact that the no-socks-look is starting to get really old – it’s borderline ridiculous when it’s actually cold out. And anyway, men of style should dare to have some fun with socks, they’re not all black and bland.

    Great teaming up the coat with these suede (?) gloves, rolled up jeans and beaten up brogues, oh yes and the bike! Love the vintage feel of the picture x

    That’s a nice coat. I have a donegal tweed coat that looks a bit like a mackintosh, collar and cuffs wise, but is currently too long (a couple of inches below my knee). I’m getting it taken up but am agonising over the length. I’m thinking an inch or two over the knee – what’s your take on coat length?

    The Linus 3-speed looks like a fashionable but vital accessory. I suspect you’re wearing loafer socks. Ride safe!

    Raglan sleeves are wonderful–I wish more women’s coats had them. It’s the first feature I noticed. 2nd, it’s Mr. S! 3rd, no socks look silly!

    Do think the coat looks great. Looks very protective against the elements. However, the sock thing, already mentioned, seems a bit out of place for the whole look. Happy motoring!

  33. Margherita

    Loving the coat! Are you one of those guys that don’t wear socks??? It’s freezing outside, I don’t know how you do it.

    This is one of the best photo’s and will be a favorite for me.

You truly have had a positive inspiring effect on my creative mind. Thank you – your biggest fan in New Zealand! Lorena. xxxxxx

    I love your new coat and I’m obsessed with your bike…I need to get one of this ASAP.
    PS: Sometimes I don’t wear socks during autumn or winter, too (though probably it is warmer in Costa Rica than in New York)…so don’t pay attention to what these people are saying : )

    Oh yeah. You know thats warmer then it looks too.

    Nice coat et all but really….. dressed like that with no socks and exposed naked ankles?? I like cuffed jeans but having them show soo much anckle makes you look even shorter.
    Sorry Scott.

  45. Brook

    November 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    There comes a time in life when men reach a certain age when you can’t do hipster things like roll up your pants. Scott, you passed it 5 years ago.

  46. Bernadette

    November 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    Dear Scott, what an excellent find! Perfect length-long enough to keep warm and short enough for full movement without unnecessary weight; great spotting and looks so comfortable.

  47. Sevan

    November 27, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    I wonder who took this picture and if it was posed or not ?
    I like this outfit a lot and would wear a feminine version of the coat.
    Scott, as for the “socks debate” : I’m guessing your are wearing low socks, more comfortable in leather shoes.
    Anyway…….you do what you want !

    November 27, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    By no means am I coming to Scott’s rescue on the Socks Debate or the “Rolling of the Cuff” Debate, but I always find these to be such polar topics. I’m wondering when rolling up the cuff of your jean became a topic related to age? I’m also wondering if the people who shun sockless (or hidden socks), ankle-showing looks during colder months have actually tried it themselves?

    I will admit, when it gets frigid outside in NYC, you really have no choice but to put socks on, the thicker the better. But this time of year in NYC the temperature is fluctuating between 35-50 degrees Fahrenheit, so from personal experience I can assure you, it isn’t the craziest thing to pull off. I’ve always been way more concerned with keeping my core warm anyways. Now, if this picture was taken in Chicago…it would be a totally different story!

    Ah Scott,I love seeing you in front of the camera! As for my favorite part of this great photograph? The coat is truly fabulous,the color one of my staples, But my most favorite,what made me giggle??? No socks!!! I say YES to no socks!!! I have a drawer full of them,from Rusted Moon and Good Earth,but I still won’t wear unless I absolutely have to! Indiana winters or not. :-)

  52. rebecka

    November 28, 2012 at 1:19 am

    if it’s cold enough to wear gloves and a scarf, maybe try some socks too?

    Great to see a picture of you! You look really handsome and cute I think. I wish I would find a boyfriend who’s got such a great style as you do! Have a nice day Mr Sartorialist.

  54. Adam

    November 28, 2012 at 2:41 am

    Great look… do you wear “pop” socks for the no socks look? How do you get away with your shoes (and feet) not stinking afterwards!?

    Oh my it’s all about the coat, bike, shoes and jeans in this shot. love that your wearing a coat, gloves, and scarf but no socks. I am not a fan of socks -( especially with a great pair of shoes likes these) I go sock less whenever possible. Who says you need socks anyway….

  65. Mikhail

    November 28, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    I doubt it’s comfortable not to wear sock while wearing gloves ;-)
