Just Arrived in India

Just arrived in New Delhi after a very long journey.

I hope to have some photos up by tomorrow.

I have no idea what I will find so wish me luck.

Wow, that's awesome, Sart! My parents are from India but I've never been there and only had the desire to do so after watching the Darjeeling Limited. Hope you have a good time!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:45 AM) : 

Best wishes! Will you visit anywhere else in Asia?



Anonymous Duchesse said ... (10:10 AM) : 

You will likely not see a woman's legs. Do send us your brilliant shots of the sensuous women in saris (or even salwaar kameez); I could not take my eyes off them when I was there last year.


Anonymous pandora said ... (10:16 AM) : 

Good luck.

I hope you find what you are looking for.

Should be a mixture of bright and exotic vs grindingly poor.


Blogger jkh said ... (10:31 AM) : 

the colors have arrived already on your blog!

from "Traditionally Caped, NYC (ok - not too colorful) to "From The Sartorialist in March GQ" a solid series of 1st class shots...

you're going your way scott!

evolve! evolve!

thrilled to see what you will be snapping!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 AM) : 


That's not entirely true. While conservative overall, Delhi is an extremely stylish city, and women there dress in a myriad of ways. You'll see gams and stilettos aplenty, Sart, especially in certain neighborhoods.


Blogger Michaude said ... (11:03 AM) : 

Oh Delhi! What a chaotic city,it has so much character! You will love the colours, the fabrics and the iconoclastic images. You'll most likely be intimidated at first, but in a matter of hours you'll be joining Indians in the hustle and bustle of the hectic days. Can't wait to see the pictures.
Best of luck.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 PM) : 

Delhi is a great city, but it'll obviously be very different from the West and even from East Asia. I personally think Bombay (Mumbai) has more culture and style, so if you get a chance to go there you definitely should. Good luck with your travels, and am looking forward to seeing your pictures!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:29 PM) : 

India is the best!
Be aware that north India is different from the south, and the west, and the east.
The styles and beauty you will see in New Delhi are only a fraction of what India contains.
I know you will get some amazing shots.

I was born in Vijayawada, Andra Pradesh and now live in Ann Arbor, MI. I am so proud that you are in India now.



Blogger Karina said ... (12:37 PM) : 

I can't wait! This is definitely something that's got me on the edge of my seat!!!!

Happy Clicking!


Blogger Eliot said ... (12:44 PM) : 

You don't need to post this, but if you find yourself hungry while in south Delhi, search out a place called Rajinder da Dhaba. It is the most down-to-earth and delicious mughal eatery on the planet.

It's immediately north of Safdarjung Enclave, on the north side of street running east-west. (just ask a local rickshaw or taxi wallah to take your there). It also isn't too far from Hauz Khas, which you will likely visit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:34 PM) : 

i'm so excited to see how you capture the wonderful fabrics and colors!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:52 PM) : 

you'll probably find some pretty gorgeous women wearing the most beautiful fabric. can't wait to see the pics.


Blogger Agyesh said ... (2:01 PM) : 

Delhi, my hometown, my home.. Enjoy yourself there.. God Bless..

You have to go to Priya's in Vasant Vihar to see the perfect fusion of east west among the youngsters..

And you have to go to old Delhi to experience the richness of colors and textures in Indian Dressing.


Blogger Daman said ... (2:04 PM) : 

Awesome! (cue indian music

Have fun! I went to India when I was in grade 6 to visit family and I really want to go back.

Can't wait to see what you find! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:50 PM) : 

I live in Delhi
and a fan of yours.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:50 PM) : 

Big fan of yours, from India. Don't forget to visit Old Delhi and Connaught Place, both historic old city centers. Do step out of the luxury hotels, it's safe and not that hot at this time. All the real colors are outside!
Do try to visit an old-time bespoke mens' tailoring shop, maybe in Connaught Place - like Vaish Bros. I had a suit made there, and it was surprisingly good, with a huge selection of fabrics.


Blogger Ullis said ... (3:20 PM) : 

I( know for sure that you'll find lots of interesting looks in India. Happy hunting!


Blogger L said ... (3:27 PM) : 

good luck with Delhi, it's exhausting! Be sure to check out the Gandhi memorial if you want a bit of quiet...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:29 PM) : 

i CANNOT wait for these. they'll be so different from what you usually do! i hope to see some beautiful saris.

i also hope you have a chance to go to bombay, because you'll have better luck there getting amazing shots, as it's the fashion capital of the country.

good luck. you'll come back 100x more grateful for what you have.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 PM) : 

please post pictures asap. i am dying to see them!


Anonymous Gauri said ... (4:34 PM) : 

New Delhi- or dilli as we say in India- is one of my hometowns along with Dubai and Toronto.

Haus Khas, South Ex, Connaught Place, Noida etc should be fun and I'm excited to see what you'll come up with.

I hope you find it easy to get permission- Indian women can be a little more reserved in such matters sometimes.

Hope you enjoy your trip and find lots to click!


Anonymous nora said ... (5:26 PM) : 

The saris are beautiful. Women's western wear didn't impress me when I was there in November, the menswear was pretty interesting--a mix of traditional and business attire, I thought it always looked effortless


Blogger The Feminine Myst-chic said ... (5:40 PM) : 

Best of luck!

I hope to be seeing you in DC at the Adamson Gallery!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:51 PM) : 

Ahhh India. Your camera is going to get a workout Sart. It is the most inspirational place i've been both visually and spiritually. Namaste!


Blogger headmistress said ... (5:53 PM) : 

can't wait, can't wait!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:21 PM) : 

oh. that's great! can't wait to see the pictures.
i really like how the indian men dress. and now i'm talking about the regular, poor indian guy. their colorful knitted vests and shirts. and the way they wrap blankets around them. and they are all so beautiful, with their big eyes and smiles.
i'm sure you'll spot some great styles.
and i am SO JEALOUS that you are in india. enjoy!


Blogger Kirsty said ... (8:19 PM) : 

Have a wonderful time in India--I was all over the north during the summer. You'll find women who have a completely different concept of color. See if you can find a family of five on one motorbike. It's an incredible country.


Anonymous Vikram Alexei Kansara said ... (8:19 PM) : 

Interested to see what catches your eye. Definitely explore the narrow lanes of Old Delhi - especially the silver market.


Blogger AnastasiaC said ... (9:01 PM) : 

fantastic!!! cant wait to see images from Deli...colour colour colour and beautiful faces!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:53 PM) : 

I will be going to India myself for the first time this fall.
I can't wait to see what kind of inspiration you find. And then to experience it firsthand..


Blogger HappyCamper said ... (11:06 PM) : 

I doubt you will have any problems. The colors are absolutely amazing over there. I can't wait to see what you find. :)


Anonymous Arlequin said ... (11:13 PM) : 

Love your blog, I've been reading it for a while now. I'm happy that you're in New Dehli, I heard it's a great city.


Anonymous jojo said ... (11:55 PM) : 

Good luck it will be great. I can't wait to see what you find there!

He's gone from Indianapolis to Indianopolis.

oh woweee!!!I am in New-delhi. Hope i spot you, love your blog and can't wait to see the india photos.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:11 AM) : 

namaste Scott,

I’m sure you’ll have a great trip in India and there’s a surprise in every corner of this city.

The colours are awesome, great textures and above all happy people…



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:39 AM) : 

Looking forward to seeing India through your lens...Will be very interesting to see what you find there and to see your interpretation. I can use a break from all the usual editors. Bon voyage, Sarto.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:08 AM) : 


Another fan from Mumbai (or Bombay) in India. You'll definitely find some interesting stuff in Delhi.

If you want to see women dress a little crazy and over the top, you must visit Mumbai. Certain pockets of the city have a quirky style quotient.

Have a great trip.



Blogger nimbupani said ... (3:12 AM) : 

I think the best styles you will see are not in Delhi but in the outskirts, near the villages, towns etc.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:45 AM) : 

Try to go to Mumbai - it's a brilliant and beautiful city (and by the sea!).


Anonymous Shr said ... (10:30 AM) : 

Can't wait to get your perspective of my hometown.


Blogger Indira said ... (10:49 AM) : 

Yeay!! You are here. I can't wait to see the pictures. I think you would love the roadside workers in their funky, colourful, layers of fabrics.

Though not an obvious connect, but I think you should check out some religious places. You will see a lot of traditionally dressed individuals who otherwise just don the convenient clothes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:33 PM) : 

India is full of vibrant color, patterns, and textures! I've been there several times and I really hope you put up pictures of women in the traditional attire. Indian clothes are truly some of the beautiful ensembles of clothing you will ever see in your life.
