Love the Look: the army field jacket over suiting

By Colin Chapman on May 27th, 2009

army_over_suiting.jpgIt’s been a little while for me since The Sartorialist featured a must-have-item, but the artful combination of this olive green army field jacket worn over a suit had me searching for a similar jacket. An iconic item in the US, they’re available from the high-end (Ralph Lauren Black Label) to army surplus stores. Somehow, the olive green colour and the fact that it’s a purposeful, military item overrides the jacket’s essential scruffiness allowing it to combine well with smarter, more conventional items.

For a more youthful take on this Milano’s estimable style, try combining with a slim fitting suit. Or my killer suggestion for warmer days: over a white fitted shirt with knitted black tie, faded jeans and tan brogues – thus combining Citizen Smith urban revolutionary with classic City smartness. ‘Freedom for Tooting’ indeed.

Yay or Nay: Autumnal Tones on The Sartorialist

By Will Reid on February 27th, 2009

2209RLcapWeb-1.jpgFor 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.

Am I the only one who thinks this fashionisto needs a pop of bright colour? Vote Yay or Nay after the jump.

Neckerchiefs: turning up everywhere

By Colin Chapman on February 19th, 2009

Neckerchief.jpg
We’ve posted about kerchiefs before, but now a definite trend seems to be developing. Along the way they’ve become ‘officially’ known as Neckerchiefs, just in case you were in any doubt as to their use. Two different Sartorialist snaps featured them this week, whilst proto-Boho Paul Kinsey in BBC Four’s Mad Men wore one in episode 2, perhaps to indicate his advancing bohemianism (along with the pipe).

Kerchiefs: another alternative to bow ties

By Colin Chapman on December 19th, 2008

kerchief.jpg

The other day I posted an alternative to the bow tie .. and here’s another. The kerchief worn as necktie adds a jaunty, hipster edge to your shirt collar. There are several ways to knot, consider your personal style and what you’re wearing it with. Ideally find something vintage. Silk always looks dashing or use that spotted pocket square you’ve never had a use for.

A recent Facehunter post shows this accessory idea off to stunning effect though it’s something that The Sartorialist has also featured before, and can even be spotted in current Uniqlo window styling.

So take a break from Christmas shopping and dig out that gem. But be advised to go for subtlety in colour and proportion: unless you really ARE channeling Quentin Crisp.

Brandish Inspiration: The Sartorialist Shoots Chanel Menswear in Fantastic Man 8

By Will Reid on November 26th, 2008

Chanel1Web.jpg

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 elusive Chanel menswear for an article written by Charlie Porter. Wow.

Love the Look: super cute siblings

Nothing warms my cockles as much as they sight of these two brothers with their matching Lego heart brooches and name knuckledusters. They’ve also matched the colour of their jackets, with the younger one wearing the exact same puffa I’m sure I had as a youth and the elder wearing a lightweight nylon windcheater, sweet!

Here comes the inevitable news that Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist is to release a book. It was only a matter of time before everyone’s favourite street style photographer got a book deal and word is that Harper Collins have agreed to publish the coffee table volume.

Over the last three years Schuman has amassed an awe-inspiring collection of photographs of the world’s most stylish people including Carine Roitfeld, André Benjamin and Anna Wintour. Hopefully it’ll be out by Christmas so I can start dropping hints, it’s already top of my wishlist!

The Sartorialist shoots André Benjamin in Florence

By admin on August 11th, 2008

andre benjamin the sartorialist pitti uomo.jpgScott Schuman had a starstruck moment recently when he snapped André Benjamin outside a shop on the last day of Pitti Uomo.

Apparently the Outkast singer is a big fan of the site and it’s no small wonder considering Benjamin’s interest in menswear and his clothing line Benjamin Bixby. Looking good in a simple ensemble of battered sunhat, white shirt and yellow trousers Benjamin is a picture of easy summer chic. Note the watch with striped bracelet which gives the outfit a bit of interest.

Luca Rubinacci in lavender and mustard

By admin on August 6th, 2008

luca rabinucci sartorialist scott schuman.jpgThe Sartorialist snapped Luca Rubinacci, son of Italian tailor Mariano Rubbinaci looking resplendent in a tricky combination of lavender and mustard.

His white jeans add freshness to the look and note the pale stripe shirt, which stops the outfit from looking too blocky. I like the quirky touch of a few (Indian ?) bangles and I can never overlook a pair of tasselled loafers.

After the jump I’ve picked out a few lavender and mustard items to get the look, and a great A.P.C shirt to tone it all down.

Cuffed trousers – how far should you go?

By admin on July 2nd, 2008

fab.jpgWith cuffed trousers being all the rage right now, just how far should you go? While Vogue Brazil editor Fabrizio Rollo can pull it off well, it’s still a risky area. The problem with roll ups is that there’s a very fine line between over-rolling and under-rolling your trousers. Over roll them and they might start looking like cargo shorts, Under roll them and they’ll just look like those old school turn ups people did to show off their selvedge denim. Vote on what type of roll up looks best after the jump

Brandish Special: Men of Mumbai

By Will Reid on June 4th, 2008

mumbai9.jpgAfter visiting Mumbai I am more convinced than ever that fashion is one of those things that unites the World. 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. 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.

The Sartorialist – not a fan of all black outfits

By admin on May 23rd, 2008

scott_schuman.jpgNext week might just be London’s most fashionable week as everyone (me included) does themselves up in hopes of The Sartorialist taking a picture of them. If you want to get Sarted, then you should probably take note of what he likes and doesn’t like.

In this Refinery29 interview Scott Schuman states that he likes ” [being surprised] by a new color and pattern, people really putting some new design sensibility into it, not just all black. I’m really tired of all black. I’m always most happy to see something that is completely unexpected”.

With this said, The Sartorialist has featured a large number of outfits with black in them lately, so maybe he’s changed his mind. Still, I wouldn’t take my chances.

Everyday Fashion Miracles: The Sartorialist

By Will Reid on March 6th, 2008

Gccelweb_2I know that it is an obvious choice and not avant-garde in the slightest, but The Sartorialist is one of those gems that just makes you smile. Increasingly, Scott (Mr. Sartorialist himself) Schuman is incorporating more and more menswear into his revolutionary blogging venture. The photos within this post (all property of The Sartorialist) are just a few of Scott’s archive of great shots. Street-style is a major influence within the fashion world right now and everyone from Henry Holland to Ricardo Tisci at Givenchy are taking inspiration from the World’s various street-walkers (no naughtiness there.) Also, despite the location of these shots usually being fashion shows and parties, most of the looks are wearable and Scott makes sure to interview his subjects, getting information on suit sources and blazer bargains. Take a look for yourself and help me spread the fashion virus throughout the Globe (God knows some people need it.)

See after the jump for more examples of Mr. Schuman’s fantastic stuff.

Pleat-front trousers

By Isabelle on March 29th, 2007

Slouchytrousers_2

Slouchy pleated trousers are back, wa-ay back in the 3rd issue of Fantastic Man magazine last year they had a whole spread of slouchy trousers with pleats you haven’t seen since the ’80s. If you live in London you might have seen Afghani immigrants wearing baggy sand-coloured pleat-front trousers, that the look you’re going for. The pleats add volume, and if carefully done won’t make you look like a moron US banker. The guys in the two images above have perfected the look by keeping it casual, the last thing you want when you’re trying out a new trend is for it to scream "Look! I’m trying something new!" See after the jump for some slouchy trousers and product links.
