For me, the Sartorialist is often ‘Hail or Fail’ in that sometimes I want to literally hunt down the people in his photographs to steal their outfits and sometimes I just want to hunt them down and …hurt them? Anyways, I can’t decided with the photo to the left. While I love the proportion play of the trench and tight, knit waistcoat and the relatively baggy trousers tucked into the boots, I’m not as convinced by the Autumnal colour scheme.

It’s that time of year when men and women of every age are all forgetting about work and turning their thoughts to something much more important- Christmas presents. I’m not talking about gifts for the slightly odd uncle or some flowers for that 80-year old neighbour who suddenly said ‘hello’ yesterday even though you heard she had died two months ago (just me?) I mean a Chanel Menswear tweed coat.

The great Karl Lagerfeld is no idiot when it comes to the gift-giving season and for the eighth issue of Fantastic Man, he has asked Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) to shoot the latest collection of Chanel goodies. Wow.

See after the jump for all the pictures from the editorial!

I’ve been slightly Sartorialist obsessed lately, but seeing as his Men.Style blog is pretty well hidden within the site, I thought I’d bring this post to your attention. In it, he notes that Italian men have taken to purple the same way British men take to grey. Now that it’s summer, they’ve graduated from purple sweaters to moccasins.

Brandish Special: Men of Mumbai

In these let few days I have seen a harsh and gripping poverty but also a vibrancy and pride that made for some great sights. This feature is dedicated to the attitude of those dealing with the harsh reality of life. Prepare for home-made man bags, children challenging fashion rules and prints that wouldn’t look out of place on a Burberry runway. There is no insensitivity intended here but an appreciation for the contagious positivity so inspirationally radiated by these young Men of Mumbai.

Keep reading for great street-style shots and a rather phenomenal blend of fabrics, styles and looks.
