The Sartorialist Goes Shopping For Fashion Week – p4

This is the Marc jacobs black corduroy jacket I’m buying for the shows.
Since he already cuts his jackets pretty short and slim very little alterations will need to be done – just sleeves, nip in the waist and the back-collar roll adjustment.

The pants in the shot are my new APC slim cut cotton jeans, hopefully the dark denim jeans will stretch out to fit like these cotton jeans.

I’m really excited about the black jacket – I think it will be a great investment. It will work with my dark denim jeans, black cotton jeans, grey flannels, proper black wool pants and or even my beat-up Levis. Of course I will wear the jacket with the Lidfort shoes, I think they are really important to the jacket because they don’t look like Jil Sander shoes or Prada or even Marc shoes really, so I think it will keep me from having too literal a “Marc Jacobs look.” That kind of mix really sums up my own personal look – mixing old-school Italian like Lidfort or Borrelli with much more modern labels like Dries or Marc.

Every season I try to buy one unreasonable accessory.

This season it is this Dries Van Noten sequined scarf. I know, crazy- but It is short enough that I can wear it loosely tied around my neck and inside my shirt for an updated ascot kinda thing.

I mean really, who ever heard of a sequined ascot/scarf – like I said, it is completely unreasonable but I love it!

    Last week I was back in London & bought 2 Dries scarves … really cool this season, got a leopard print short one & a leopard print cashmere one which is slightly longer …. $420 each so hopefully I’ll get some use out of them!

    You must be having so much fun! Thanks for allowing us Sartorialist addicts to live vicariously through you on your retail adventures.

    Courduroy is always perfect for the fall and that scarf is amazing!

    Scott, the scarf’s beyond wonderful; I’d build a life, never mind a wardrobe, around it…

    Nice choices.

    Will be great to see the clothing *on you* as that is the great feature of your blog. Will you catch yourself in a mirror as you work?

    Also, why have you disallowed anonymous postings? Just curious.

    Love the Marc Jacobs jacket!

    The scarf isn’t unreasonable. We all make these kinds of purchases and they’re completely justifiable. How bland would the world be if we all dressed head to toe a single runway look? This is putting your “stamp” on the look.

    I love so many of the photos on your blog of people “on the street”, personally accessorising a certain look or style. I can’t get away with (I probably shouldn’t even use the words “get away with”) some of the items other people wear but that’s the whole point, isn’t it? Individual interpretation of fashion. If you love it and feel good in it, you’ll look good too!

    Men in sequins? And, not part of some Vegas show? Some runway trends are better left on the runway, methinks.

    I love that scarf! I find that a seemingly “outrageous” accessory that you really love ends up working its way into your outfits all the time, until it becomes a signature piece.

    I think your style is just great! And the scarf… something I’d have my eye on as well.

    Fun scarf! It will balance the sexy act of the skinny APCs. I will love to see a shot of the description you made in how you want to wear it.

    Yikes, ny:lon! For the price, I hope you get LOTS of use out of your short and “slightly longer” scarves–a decade’s worth, let’s say….

    I am going to have to see that scarf on someone. I am not convinced its worth the investment..

    the Dries sequined scarf is really great! I love also the corduroy jacket. In Milan and Paris you are going to be elegantissimo. At Ferragamo in Milan (Montenapoleone) do not forget to buy one of the- silk on one side and cashmere on the other- scarves -it will look great on your corduroy jacket and on your formal suit. Sart you are a sartorial genius!

    A sequined scarf used as an ascot — absolutely mental, absolutely fabulous, absolutely perfect.

    I’m not sure I’d like the black cord jacket with black wool pants, though. Maybe I’m wrong; I’d have to see it. All of the other choices sound great.

    Just please don’t wear it Kanye West style.

    The jacket is divine and given your recent investment at the gym I think Marc’s cut will suit your build rather nicely.

    I really don’t understand those who think the scarf is over the top … you see this sort of accessory all the time on guys in N.Y / L.A etc … It’s beautiful but certainly not outrageous …

    whether or not any of us like the scarf, sometimes there are things that catch our eye and we just have to have, and that make little or not sense to others. the scarf seems to be that for you. i’m sure all of us have pieces like that, and they’re what make us individuals and not carbon-copies of clothing advertisements.

    i think the scarf is great. My problem is also the black jacket + black wool trousers… are you sure?

    The scarf may be a great accessory in New York or London, but if you are doing a shoot in Opp, Alabama, I would leave it at home.

    Great choices all round! APC jeans are still my favourite, and you can’t beat a black cord jacket. I was in Marc Jacobs new Paris shop (it’s in the Palais Royal) and was impressed by much of the men’s collection. Worth a visit (though why a New Yorker would go to MJ in Paris…!)

    Now that MJ has a “presence” in Paris the prices are closer to NY prices: Previously the mark-up in the big Paris department stores has been absurd.

    Have you seen the shoes Church’s has made for Jil Sander? They’re quite nice: Plain, black or brown, with a sort of school uniform feel. The sole is a little flimsy for winter, I think, but Church’s soles are generally hard-wearing.

    Enjoy your new buys… I’m looking at the APC Rescue Cut jeans, which are slightly wider.

    Dries’ scarves are very appealling. You made a good move buying so early: Every August without fail I see and admire Dries scarves for the new season when they arrive in his Bon Marché corner. I always think I’ll get one, but it’s too early to get a scarf… and every year they’re sold out by the end of the summer.

    fab Dries scarf, make sure you go to the Dries shop-in-shop in Selfridges when you get to London, he designed the whole thing, including the furniture, himself, beautiful.

    Great jacket. I’m still in love with the Helmut Lang black cord jacket I saw 3 YEARS AGO at Colette in Paris, but they didn’t have my size!!

    Last week in London I stopped by The Library in Brompton Cross, their summer sale was on its last days and I snagged an awesome black cotton Dirk Schonberger military style jacket with shiny buttons and a frayed collar. I paid 100 pounds!! Compliments by total strangers ensued!

    The week before that I was in New York and I stalked the streets looking my best hoping to be caught “unawares” by your camera, but alas…. (kidding!)
