this is not how students usually look at yale - he looks more like a typical hipster kid from london ! great shot


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (8:56 AM) : 

Oh, I didn't knew the americans could dress themselves that way.


Blogger Austin said ... (8:57 AM) : 

i wonder what his shirt says


Blogger ginjin3 said ... (8:58 AM) : 

that guy is sharp. well composed outfit, colors, the fit, it's definitely something i would wear.


Blogger danielle said ... (8:59 AM) : 

I would want him to be my best friend from college. Great style!


Blogger Nerine said ... (9:12 AM) : 

Love it! The hair, those shoes, the bag, it's wonderful.


Blogger tintin said ... (9:13 AM) : 

Looks like he's reading GQ far too much.


Blogger Iheartfashion said ... (9:19 AM) : 

Peacoat and patent leather=tres chic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:20 AM) : 

it IS actually how a lot of us dress at yale.

i can't believe the sartorialist was on campus and i didn't even know!


Blogger William said ... (9:31 AM) : 

I love this look, the shoes are great. I think his hair cut is incredible. Great find, I wish guys would have the courage to dress like this at my college. Well done


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:35 AM) : 

I thought you were doing a Yale and Princeton theme? I can see this on any street corner. Not that inspiring and those shoes are awful.


Blogger La Cabeza Grande said ... (9:38 AM) : 

This styling fellow reminds me of a friend of mine: African born, London bred. The stance, the shoes, the football jersey all scream European!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:41 AM) : 

holy crap! the sartorialist came to yale!!! he should have done a tea or something


Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (9:41 AM) : 

I like his coat. Great face!


Blogger Chike-Ikechi Is said ... (9:51 AM) : 

OMG!!! I knew you'd capture Madison!! AHHHHHHH...why wasn't I at Yale? This guy is definitely not a one time dresser! He keeps it very sharp, day-in day-out!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:56 AM) : 

he DID do a tea... the ycouture people organized it


Blogger Louboutin Lover said ... (9:59 AM) : 

this guy looks fierce. love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:04 AM) : 


that coat kills me, too.


Anonymous Christine said ... (10:08 AM) : 

I think it's great that you're finally going to some college campuses. Although many do not have such a Sartorial focus, a lot of schools are rife with fashion mavens and experimenters. I recommend Vassar for another collegiate romp with serious style.


Blogger Donovan said ... (10:11 AM) : 

Look at the cut of the pockets on the coat--they're all diagonal/ Unusual, but definitely cool.


Blogger pika said ... (10:26 AM) : 

nice pea coat for sure, but i don't like the shoes with that outfit.


Anonymous DesignGod said ... (10:29 AM) : 

I don't know... He's a GREAT looking guy. GORGEOUS really, but I have seen this look SOOOOOO many times in SoHo and Williamsburg. Where is the fresh perspective or the whimsy? That being said, I do LOVE the peacoat. I find skinny jeans on men to be absolutely emasculating, but they work on him. Love the bag. HATE the shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:46 AM) : 

Yeah, the T-shirt is one of Henry Holland's (House of Holland) "Cause me pain Hedi Slimane"... It's a London thing

"I can see this on any street corner."

Really!? Hmmm.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:48 AM) : 

Perfect. Thanks. This is what it means to dress well, to look hip, but not be over the top.


Anonymous Theo said ... (10:55 AM) : 

From the top of his hawk to the shine on his shoes this lad looks smashing. He's probably a Brit but it would be nice if he was an American.

It's nice to see a young guy wearing jeans that aren't super tight and skinny, wearing basic pieces and still having more style than most of the kids who layer on the retro 80's crap.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:57 AM) : 

I KNOW HIM! Well, I know OF him--I used to see him walking around the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor...Man, talk about a small world.

And yes, he dressed like this pretty mucb everyday.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:08 AM) : 

Very hot look. Just a fabulous photo.


Blogger Nelson vH said ... (11:18 AM) : 

Some fellow posters are right...not an unusual look here in good ole europe ;) The gentleman looks british!

Patent shoes are something you don´t see often, tho!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:00 PM) : 

beautiful. i would date that guy in a second, or at least steal his clothes...


Blogger Christy said ... (12:03 PM) : 

I want to take class with him! So hot, from head to toe.


Blogger Mylinh said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Great hair, striking face. Nice coat and bag.


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

Overall I think the proportions are great- I would be interested in knowing who made the peacoat, there appear to be a couple of small labels. Previous comments have already commented that the diagonal pockets are unusual, although they can be found in german/italian army-issued garments. I like the patent leather of the shoes and I think it is a great contrast with the gritty black fitted jeans. I disagree with dress shoes constructed with a Chelsea boot-like elastic. I think it cheapens the look and line of the shoe, and I would rather go with something more classic like a loafer or simple laces, but that's just me. Jorge from West Palm Beach


Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (12:17 PM) : 

Now that's a well dressed guy


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:20 PM) : 

london calling - but not special, see that look everyday


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:22 PM) : 

Love the skinny washed out jeans with those shoes, they look really good on him. The jeans, collar up and hair makes him pretty punk around the edges, somehow. Love the coat. A good look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:27 PM) : 

@ Theo: He's American. Isn't that so 'nice'?

And yeah - a lot of Yale guys dress like that, especially the ones in the theater/hipster crowd (I only know him because he was a TA in a performance theory class); although this guy in particular really takes his clothing to the next level on a daily basis. *applause


Blogger SB Gamble said ... (12:30 PM) : 

To respond to "Designgod" who said, they found skinny jeans on men "absolutely emasculating," I must beg to differ. I love my skinny jeans, they are chic on men or women. I mean, seriously, what do want him wear--big slumpy cargo pants or something? Or sagging them to his kneecaps. I love this outfit and it looks like something sitting my closet right now.


Blogger thevegasstyleguy said ... (12:59 PM) : 

No guy at my school looked this good. Of course i went to Junior College...


Blogger Rollergirl said ... (1:01 PM) : 

Individually the pieces are ...O-kay... but it's all in the mix, the hair, face, the pose, I like it! This blog will be a really useful document for fashion historians in years to come. (Hell, it is already!)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:01 PM) : 

i've read his articles in the paper...they're amusing.

i like the outfit--simple and comfortable. but it seems incomplete. needs something tan in colour...a hat or a scarf...or something.

post more students from universities please!


OpenID frenk said ... (1:13 PM) : 

I love the way the pea coat is cut. Slim and short.

Does anyone know where I can find a similar style pea coat? Preferably online.

i think men look wonderful in pea coats. It's a sturdy, functional, immortal and simply stylish piece of clothing and makes even an older man look slightly boyish.


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

High style on a low student budget, I love it!


Blogger Magdalena said ... (1:33 PM) : 

the whimsy is in the hair and the henry holland shirt with the conservative coat and shoes. HOT look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:43 PM) : 

I like his coat, shirt, and bag. Also good that he dares to wear those jeans. I don't like his shoes. Daring haircut.


Blogger modernaged said ... (2:20 PM) : 

I always thought my school in Albany, New York, was the least stylish University on the planet.

This suggests that I was right all along.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:22 PM) : 

Come to Toronto!
U of T has some hip and chic students while keeping it effortless of course... A must for all university students.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:25 PM) : 

why don't you ever come to Columbia. student style right in the city...far better than yale

Minus the "faux-hawk" I'd say this look is perfect


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:40 PM) : 

look up his column 'patent leather' in the yale daily news. it's great!

he can't be american--that's just too good. love everything. he's hot :)

this guy is shart, great hair do and he suits that outfit very much. but isn't this the usual look for many brits? saying that it works really well

Great hair - love the height in the middle

Great jacket! The whole look isnicely understated, and very cool.

so excited that you came to yale! i saw you taking a picture of someone in front of the art gallery - i kept staring rudely because i thought i was hallucinating. if there really was a master's tea i'm disappointed i didn't hear about it!

how long will you be in new haven for, scott?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:29 PM) : 

i think the coat is g-star raw, don't hate me if i'm wrong tho....

This is well done. I love the shoes!


Blogger FireBrand said ... (10:00 PM) : 

The Satorialist should come to The AU Center. Between Morehouse, Spelman and Clark Atlanta, there is a great deal of style about.


Blogger Min said ... (10:45 PM) : 

americans can and do dress like this. you just have to look really, really hard.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:17 PM) : 

you should visit pratt institute in brooklyn, ny to get an art school's perspective. plus, it's my alma matter!! please come to pratt!!!

Very stylish taste. Lovely. Wayyy better than the student in the post above. -Ant

I just wish guys had a little more style in Memphis.

He is hot, simple and chic.


Anonymous Aubrey. said ... (1:03 AM) : 

Man, this kid is sharp! The colors of the jeans and the bags offset eachother nicely (though I'm not sure he planned that).

And what a handsome guy! Look at that jawline!


Blogger Marcelo Daniel said ... (1:12 AM) : 

Trés trés beau.


Anonymous Justin said ... (1:26 AM) : 

I'd bet all the money I'll ever make in my life that that dude is not from the States.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:47 AM) : 

Judging from the small label with yellow letters right above his left pocket, the pea coat could be G-Star Raw. They have something going on with pocket cut on the angle as well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:56 AM) : 

This guy is so LONDON!!! Washed out jeans!!!! but he gets it right. Love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:18 AM) : 

He's got the London look!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:45 AM) : 

Perfect. And what a face, jeeprs, this man just has presence in spades. And how much are we loving that man



Blogger Daniel said ... (8:41 AM) : 

sure, the outfit is chic but simple...BUT find some people who wear like this!
i also think he doesnt need any further accessoir, his face/hair is the best accessoir he could choose.


Blogger dianatrafik said ... (9:58 AM) : 

keep taking pics of nice dressed students Sart,you see how many controversy talking you provoked.....
this guy is actualy a great example of how young people have very cool choises!
i think the pink colour of t-shirt make the whole outfit very interesting,taking him out of anonymity!!!


Anonymous Claire said ... (11:28 AM) : 

He looks SO London! And as someone born in that city, I can only say, Well played, well played indeed. I like.


Blogger tyler said ... (3:11 PM) : 

it works for him, but i feel that brown leather shoes would better compliment the gray jeans and navy peacoat. am i the only one who feels this way?


Blogger playing fashion said ... (3:59 PM) : 

love that House of Holland


Anonymous Alan said ... (6:54 PM) : 

it's the pretty pea coat and shiny shoes..quite edgy and cool


Anonymous dt145 said ... (8:37 PM) : 

I always see this guy around campus, always making heads turn! is he british then? is he famous? both? we need more guys like this in new haven!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:53 PM) : 

That's classic American style. Jeans, white t shirt, pea coat. Even the hair style comes from a Native American tribe, Mohawk.


Blogger mauricio said ... (10:51 PM) : 

you can never go wrong with a G-STAR COAT!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:03 AM) : 

Love the mix of wool, leather, and jean! His bag is a good touch that draws the eye with its reflectivity, but is still harmonious with the rest. Great shot--I will have to say hi to this guy if I see him walking around Old Campus in the future.

And it's unfortunate that I found out about your Master's Tea until after. Will you be visiting us in New Haven again sometime soon?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:33 AM) : 

overall he's very aesthetically pleasing. I wouldn't necessarily say it's very london though, perhaps the jeans and peacoat, but the Henry Holland T-shirt thing is very much over and done with here.
He strikes a good pose.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:42 AM) : 

i want that jacket.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:11 PM) : 

Flawless!!! And no, you can't see this on every corner. The cut of his clothes and the overall proportions are very telling of his sartorial intention.


Blogger monique said ... (10:56 PM) : 

Good looking London brotha....what? He's goodness. Those Yale boys are looking so much finer than I recall. Yum-EE! More fine black men, please Sart!


Blogger MS Reviewer said ... (5:37 AM) : 

This grunge meets chic look is superb Scott!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:56 PM) : 

Very nice!
Very comparative literature-flim studies- semiotics student chic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:36 PM) : 

I don't understand why everyone says this guy is so London! I attended McGill University in Montreal for undergrad and now I'm at UofT in Toronto for graduate school and I see guys dressed just as sharp as this all the time. Whether I'm at the library, in class, or doing experiments in the lab, I always see students that try to dress creatively and liven things up, which is interesting as I'm a science student and most people think only artsy students care to dress well.

But great shot as always, the brick colour in the back reminds me of autumn and it helps that this guy is beautiful. Glad to see you on a college campus. COME TO CANADA!


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

for all of you saying that he's London style and that the shoes are wrong - you're missing the point. Yale students have been wearing patent leather pumps to formals for a century or so, and to see him wearing them with faded jeans and a killer peacoat with rude t-shirt, obviously just on his way to a lecture - that's the whole point, to de-mystify the norm. maybe you have to have gone to an Ivy League school to get it, but he's actually quite revolutionary in his gorgeous, gorgeous way.


Blogger amyw said ... (12:19 PM) : 

Very hip. And I think that's a House of Holland t-shirt peeking out from under his jacket!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:30 PM) : 

Everyone looks like this in London. Its so generic and shows a complete lack of imagination.

Yeah! an Afrian Amercian (I'm assuming) with some *REAL* style. Love it!


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (6:16 AM) : 

for anon 12:30pm

the fact that this is not London is what is different about it

the coat is G-star

Hey! somebody needs to tell off Anonymous 8:08PM

I can't tell if it's supremely ironic comment or a racist comment.

Any way. How can anybody get ahead in life with this kind of stereotype hanging over people's heads?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:40 PM) : 

this guy looks great!
but you should definitely pay a visit to brown/RISD.
the students here can dress very creatively without looking like hobos or nutjobs (i'm not saying the yale fellow is a nutjob).

Madison, this is your girlfriend, Jessica. Why do I feel like I would never see you in this outfit now? 2010 REMIX: Peacoat turns black with exaggerated shoulders, pants go skin tight/harem, and our YSL baby has finally been born. Oh what I would do for this man to photograph my campus.
