At Etro....Knit Jacket w/ Fur Collar

I love this knit jacket with the fur collar. Notice that the fur is different in the front and back.

At Armani

He wears this look all the time and he just owns it.
He looks so natural in it to me that eventually when I see him in something different it will surprise me a little.

On the Street....... Saint-Honore, Paris

On the Street.......The Blonde, Paris

At The Fashion School in Antwerp

One Of My All-Time Favorite Shots

This is one of my all-time favorite shots simply because I almost didn't get it.

When I am walking on the street I am constantly,constantly, constantly adjusting and readjusting the setting on my camera so I don't have to be messing with them when I stop someone to take their photo. On this morning I knew I walking into the sun for a little while so I did a few adjustments to my setting.

It was pretty quiet that morning so I was a little relaxed and not expecting to see much then all of a sudden I see this young lady on her bike.
I had no time to do anything but raise the camera and shoot. Eight out of ten times I would miss this shot because the focus would be off, or the shot is too blurry or the exposure is overly bright or dark, or I just didn't see the outfit well enough before it was too late.

This time it all worked perfectly and I didn't even see the white leather boots she was wearing (to ride her bike!) until I looked at the shot in camera.

I love her posture, the bike itself, her hat pulled low, the studious glasses, she just seems so elegant and yet completely sporty. I hate over-preciousness and she seems like the kind of girl that would ride in a convertible with the top and not worry about her hair because she knows she has a great cut.

I know I am completely projecting here about what who she is or what she may be like but that is what inspiration is all about. I don't need to know the facts- this unknown woman will live forever in my memory just like this. Perfect

I'm still working on this color splicing thing so the enlarged version is the correct color. I will resolve it when I return to NYC.

When redheads understand their coloring and how to accentuate it they can really look fantastic.

Some of my best shots on this trip has been of redheads.

On the Street.......Lost on the Streets of Antwerp

Dries Van Noten Shop in Paris

I hear that Dries is preparing to open a new shop in Paris.

The shop here in Antwerp is closed to transition into Spring 2007.

I will try very hard to get shots of the shop while I am in Paris the next few days.

Most of the photos I am taking here in Antwerp will appear on my GQ page.

I have gotten some great images, a great mix of the cutting edge and the traditional that makes Antwerp so interesting.

The fashion school here is incredible , it is so inspiring to see how proud the faculty is of their students and how happy the students are to be there.

If only Project Runway could have been based in Antwerp!

While I was at the school today Walter Van Beirendonck was working very closely with the 4th year students on their final collection. Couldn't you just imagine watching him on the students back instead of Tim Gunn!

On the Street.......Goth Goddess, Antwerp

This girl was quite the site walking down a side street with her cape blowing in the wind. What I really like is that she has a Goth look but has kept the sweet innocent face. I think that is much more interesting because you don't quite know what you are up against. I was a little ......not nervous....but more guarded when I approached her. I love that this sweet girl was able to keep me a little off-balance.

At Pitti Uomo...Pink Scarf

I notice the pink scarf first but equal to that I also notice his overall well-groomed appearance, but he doesn't seem to fall into the trap of being an over-groomed metrosexual.


Yesterday I received three hate emails from weirdo's that think I wrote an article about men wearing leggings.

Personally I don't care if men wear leggings but I feel really sad for the guys that feel compelled to write stupid emails about something so frivolous.

Are they really afraid that they may soon have to make the decision of which leggings look best with their sportcoats?

One guy said I wouldn't last long in his office.....well, I run in leggings, I think that means i would kick his ass twice as fast.

Sorry for the rant but I hate the fear the runs some peoples lives.

If i could figure out how to document it I should wear a pair of leggings with a sportcoat ,like in the Marni show, and capture and how people react. i would have to do it in a city like Philly or Pittsburgh.

Wasn't that Cameo's whole look back in the 80's?

Has anyone seen the article that these weirdo's are talking about?

The Sartorialist Almost Arrested in Antwerp!!!!

Prostitution is legal in Antwerp and I think pot is too but don't cross the street against a red light or BIG TROUBLE!

A cop car stopped me today in Antwerp because I crossed the street against a "NO Walk" sign.

Well, I am a New Yorker, sorry but that is what we do.

In New York If no traffic is coming and you don't cross the street people will think you may be hurt and will come to your aid.

This policeman stopped me not because i had created some type of traffic problem but merely because I had crossed the street against the red "right in front of my nose."

He was so mad his hands were shaking while he looked at my ID. When he asked for my ID I gave him my drivers licenses but he wanted my passport. He really thought he had me when I couldn't find it right away but when I found it he was pissed that he didn't get to take me in to the station house.

He asked all kinds of questions like how long I have been in Antwerp and why I am here.
He was looking for the stamps on my passport and asked why the last one was from 2006. I told him I don't know and that i came here on the train. "From New York by train?" he asked, "No from Paris" I said.
I was trying really hard not to laugh out loud.

"This is very bizarre, let this be a warning!!!"he said and he drove away.

That's right, me and 50 Cent, we are some bad-ass lawbreakers in Antwerp!!!

Can I come back to New York now?

The Ralph Lauren Look At Pitti, Florence

This Italian gentleman was the first man I had seen at Pitti with worn faded jeans. It is funny when something so common in New York stands out so much in Italy.

Marni's men's show today (their first ever) was really great - right up there with Jil Sander.

PS - Please click on image to enlarge AND to see a better color version. I have to contact Blogger b/c for some reason the images are coming up a little flat on the main page lately.

From the Car

I saw this young lady while I was leaving the Dsquared show on the way to Valentino. I thought she looked so great I had to try to get a shot.
As it turns out, she was headed to the Valentino show too.

At Pitti Uomo...The Right Amount of Cuff

This is easily a half inch cuff and it looks perfect....ok, so does everything else.

At Pitti Uomo...The Fur Pullover?

Her top looked and moved like a fur pullover, if it was then it is really cool. It may also be just a fur jacket which would still be pretty cool

At Pitti Uomo...Just Adorable

At Pitti Uomo...Gloves in the Chest Pocket

I have heard about the gloves-in-the-breast-pocket look but I have rarely seen it done successfully.

This version, I think, is very well done.
