Return to Melbourne!

I am returning Sunday to Melbourne for a project I’ll be shooting next week.

I would love to meet some of my Melbourne readers.

We will be having a very non-organized party at Cutler & Co in Fitzroy around 8pm tomorrow night.

If you are in the neighborhood please stop by.

Sunday May 3rd, 8pm
Cutler & Co Bar
55-57 Gertrude Street

PS. I will be back for parties in both cities later this year for my book launch.

    I presume you’ll be hanging around for a while… You’ll need to if you want to say hello to everyone who comes ;-) I’d like to drop by, but I won’t be able to get there until 10 or so.

    Cutler & Co has probably the world's best salty caramel ice cream sandwich – which makes the fact you are stopping by a double whammy. And I am a man who loves whammy. Upon the morrow good sir

    Good Morning,
    The overall impression from the photos and comments is that the people in Australia are wonderful and that you have had about the best time ever.
    The Cutler & Co Bar is gonna be one happening place!
    You really brighten the world with what you do best!

    Me too. I just moved up to Brisbane and so devastated, living up here. Wish I can be there in Fitzroy tomorrow to met you in person. It will be a big honour.

    Perhaps next year at your book launch… *sigh* Do keep us up to date on it. Very excited :)

    By the way, the hubs and me are big fan of OLD MEN STYLE on your blog.. We have always been big big voyeur of old men in suits… they have characters non to match!!

    Thank you for sharing them pictures!

    what about São Paulo? When are you coming?
    I would love to see what you think about the looks on São Paulo’s streets, cause it would change de idea of brazilians in few clothes or at the beach, like you see at Rio de Janeiro.

    I think you should come visit us here in New Zealand, we have some pretty rad style over these ways. Then you could have a very non-organised party here too :)

    My friends and I are humble law students drowning in exams, and checking this blog is one of the highlights of my day, every day!

    Dear Sartorialist,

    I am a HUGE fan of your work and not a week goes by that I don’t get onto the your site and allow myself to be inspired and entranced by your beautiful images.

    Today was one of the most exciting days of my life because as I was heading to breakfast on my favorite street there you were shooting! I was too shy to go say hi, (but I wish I had), however it was with star struck eyes that I had the pleasure to see how you do what you do (and may I say you looked very cool and Melbourne doing it!).

    I can’t wait for your return next year for your book launch and I will definitely not be too shy to come say hi.

    Hope you’re enjoying Australia!

    Dammit! I don’t read this blog nearly as much as I should. I’m a transplanted New Yorker who’s been in Melbourne since last July and I miss the one chance to meet you here. Love your blog! I’ll be back in NY at summer’s (Northern Hemisphere’s summer) end so perhaps in the Fall you’ll have a book launch in NY that I can attend. I also recommend the lower half of Sydney Road in Brunswick suburb, just north of Royal Parade, for some photo ops.

    I’m so sorry I missed you! It would’ve been a meeting of my most two favourite worlds – your inspiring site and andrew mcconnell’s genius food! Will there be photos from the night? I will check your site even more frequently to make sure I don’t miss out on the next magical melbourne pairing. Hope you’re enjoying your time in oz..

    Dear Scott,

    Your work is totally amazing but, most importantly to me, you are really an inspiration. I have been following your blog almost since its inception and to see success come to someone who is developing his natural gifts and doing something he loves….what else is there to say? You deserve all of it.

    Anyway, you visit so many wonderful cities but have you ever considered Montreal? Montrealers have great style and are pretty proud of it. All summer long, we have lots of festivals (Montrealers like to party!). Perhaps you might like to photograph Canadian style?

    Thanks for your consideration.

    All the Best,

    Woes betide aplenty!

    I finished work and was set to go meet you, alas fatigue grabbed me by the throat and strangled any remnant of inspiration that drove me to be there with you in Fitzroy that evening — usually I’m there every other night with bells on!

    Blessed be the noose of 9-5! I wait in bated breath for the launch!
