ahh, words cannot express how much I love this blog. There is a certain look that you always hone in on, whether you’re in New York, Milan, Paris, etc … And that’s a good thing. I aspire to that look – sleek, dark, with dashes of whimsy.
I agree with mspen about how much more interesting the photos are of “the regular folk”. I think it supports what you hear so many people posting comments about; people being comfortable in their own skin. What seems to be missing in the photos when you are at a fashion location is the lack of joy. I know they are working long hours and my understanding is it is hard, hard work. Having said that, my guess is that most of the people whose photos you are taking back home in NYC are working hard as well. I still think the most stylish thing you can wear is a smile. Thanks again Sart. My wife has now come right out and said this blog is an offical addiction!
While his faded jeans do point to American influences, the length of his jeans…the way they just barely touch the top of his shoes…I do not know the proper influence (italian, british, tailoring in general?)… but stateside I still see 90% of males with jeans that are too long and bunched up on top of the shoe.
i love your site! you make fashion fun the way it should be. i feel motivated to wear my best before i walk out the door after looking at your photos. this is such a great inspiration because i used to feel scared about drawing attention to me, but now i love the feeling of dressing well. it boosts my confidence and makes the day so much better!
I’m sorry I really don’t agree that the European photos are less interesting than the NY ones. Au contraire, I think the “on the road” shots have some really amazing diversity (the Italian ones are just my favourite).
The NY ones tend to have (from my perspective anyway) too many model types in head to toe black. Compare that to the gorgeous glamazon in grey or the granny and the scruffy teenager or the brown suit with purple tie…
I don’t agree that the photos in NYC are more interesting (ref: msaspen 12:40); I think we all have our personal preferences and view those as the ‘best’ and ‘most interesting’ images…that’s the beauty of this blog.
Personally, I tend to perfer the looks shot in Italy, France, and England. But that’s not to say there aren’t reams of hot NYC images too.
On this blog the saying ‘it’s all good’ truly applies.
I like this Italian gentleman because he looks like a typical North American viewed through a magical looking-glass of chicness…
I love this blog, absolutely and utterly, but anyone who thinks the people that are photographed in NYC are ‘regular’ people is out of their minds. The vast majority are either in the business, aspiring to be in the business, or so wealthy that it doesn’t matter. The ‘regular’ people are few and far between
