The Sartorialist in Fantastic Man #7

I am so honored to be profiled in the new issue of Fantastic Man.
We shot this the day I was leaving for Europe to shoot the men’s collections. I am surprised I look so relaxed in some of the shots because I hate doing anything the day I leave for a big trip. We were actually just pulling looks out of my suitcase.

Tim Blanks did a beautiful job writing the story. A lot of the profiles I have done in the past tell you the facts about what I am doing but Tim really captured why I am doing The Sartorialist.

    Please consider different sizes for your photos/exhibits – I think some will have bigger impact if in larger size (close to full scale).

    You’re cute. Now I’ve seen you two times: Debating whether to take my photo or not. (You didn’t—tre cool—tre cool.) The first time I was walking down Mercer and the second time I was walking up that street between starbucks and balthy’s (adjacent to spring). And I was always like who’s that creep eyeing me up and down. I guess I’ve never seen a photo of you…..but next time get ready, because I’ve got my own blog now and a snazzy new camera. Tee hee hee. tis like a real life game of “where’s waldo?” or should i say “wear scott.”

    Elegant. The b&w snaps convey a sartorial sense of classic timelessness, or perhaps a sense of The Eternal Now. Certainly suggestive of 1948, if it weren’t for the mobile. I miss the colours referenced in the captions. The suede monk straps are brill, btw.

    I think one thing your blog has made clear is that there is no ‘sartorial perfection’… so i’d have to strongly disagree with the subtitle… but hot pics. What type of fabric is the pocket square?

    Scott, I’m not one to bestow undue adulation on you personally, so it is with hesitation that I have to say that you look great in those pictures. And I cannot believe those are you own clothes, you look as good as the best sartrorialist you’ve ever shot (or maybe just slightly short of that, but only slightly). Oh and to Chesing: Sart never wears watches, he’s said something about how they ruin the showing of the cuff, in the past.


  47. marchingbandemporium

    March 5, 2008 at 5:23 am

    Congratulations, and great pics of you. Interesting about “why” you do the Sartorialist. The way I see it is that you take pictures with such passion and belief that it becomes obvious why you do it if you look at your posts often enough, even if that can’t always be expressed in words.

    I’ve got to say that as much as you compliment all the men you feature here, (and I know it would be vain to feature yourself), I still hold true that you, yourself are the epitome of absolute male sartorial perfection. You are wonderfully, timelessly handsome and you dress impeccably. It’s about time we saw a feature on you!

    I hope this answers the question – what does the Sartorialist himself wear?
