On the Street.....Black & White, West Soho

I like the way the hat makes it less severe. Very unexpected.


Blogger heidi said ... (8:23 AM) : 

that wall is gorgeous... who did it?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:35 AM) : 

This is all about the photograph - the young man against the crazy background - it's terrific!
Put a big smile on my face on a rainy morning..
If i saw this guy walking down any other street i'd admire the hat/hair/specs combo but nothing else.


Blogger Runway Rules said ... (8:45 AM) : 

Love the hat and those glasses.


Blogger GianLorenzo Thatcher Greyson said ... (9:06 AM) : 

those glasses are about all that does it for me here.

Blogger Frontier Psychiatrist said ... (9:53 AM) : 

Normally this hat would annoy me, but paired with the glasses I think it looks good.

Not a fan of the shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:59 AM) : 

I say boring... the wall is great though.


Blogger Keisha Kornbread said ... (10:44 AM) : 

He's adorable!!

I love the way the colors play.

Wayfarer spectacles, discuss.

I have four pairs and they make my outfits feel complete but I feel it's fast becoming the domain of the fashion victim. I take it from the comments so far that the waters are still warm?

It's all on the wall. Looks like Harry Potter trying to do an impression of Johnny Depp. Shoes seem a bit heavy, chunky, bulky. Great shot though.


Blogger [mega] Paulo Mamedes said ... (1:01 PM) : 

Very nice clothes, too bad shoes!


Anonymous style slicker said ... (1:05 PM) : 

loose casual style....very chill out

I kept by Wayfarers from the 80s and am wearing them again- I think they are a classic shape of frame and will not ever go away. Lots of people never stopped wearing them. I also like the composition of the picture: which is the subject, the guy or the wall? Dislike the shoes (they whisper overworked waiter) but otherwise like the outfit. Jorge from West Palm Beach


Blogger skinnyGLASSESgirl said ... (3:07 PM) : 

adorable.. i'll take one to go please!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:30 PM) : 

I agree with the comments that admire the wall more than his outfit. It's a fine outfit, and the hat is cute, but I'm not particularly excited about it in any way. And I hate the shoes.


Anonymous Anairam said ... (3:39 PM) : 

Great picture! The outfit doesn't do it for me though. But it's clear that this guy has his own sense of style and is comfortable with it - good for him!


Anonymous Gloria said ... (3:52 PM) : 

The wall overshadows him. I think his attire is boring. :(


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:06 PM) : 

those shoes make this one of the worst pics ever on the sart


Blogger Peter Stocks said ... (6:30 PM) : 

I think the hat adds a quirky touch, also the neck of the top suits the slouchy look.


Blogger White Russian said ... (7:12 PM) : 

Better shoes would've completely transformed this.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:18 PM) : 

this man cannot be used as an icon of fashion, this is a poor example of high style....unless mr schuman knows something i dont


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:46 PM) : 

I would agree with the wall being the best bit.

The hat and glasses are indeed quirky. The jacket and trousers i'm not keen on but it could be the yohji look he is going for. I do like the t-shirt/vest, great neckline. Is that shoe style called creepers?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:16 PM) : 

Glasses are great, not my style but a great photo nonetheless


Blogger Peter said ... (10:28 PM) : 

From the waist up I really like it. The jacket looks great. Shoes should be thrown in the trash though...


Blogger monique said ... (10:43 PM) : 

Love everything. Although the flipped up-in-the-front trilby isn't my favorite, he works it well. It usually looks too Tears for Fears but not here.

His pasty, Elvis Costello, gangly, cool nerd thing is workin'. I especially like how comfortable he looks without looking schleppy.

Very masculine.

Very sexy.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 PM) : 

We all know this portrait is not about the young man-- it's all about Sart's great eye for composition ;-) Love the sleek and graphic black and white, with only the subject's face and hat holding colors. Awesome how he's blending into the mural behind him; reminds me of another one of your beautiful portrait of the young black man in a graffiti-printed hoody standing before a graffiti-covered wall. You rock.



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

wayfarer's are for fashion victims? they had a season in the 1980's (as per another comment here: elvis costello, love them brothel creepers, havent seen these for a while). the same could be said about eames chairs or some other timeless well designed 20c piece. can we help that paris hiltons stylist jumped on the bandwagon?!


Blogger Melissa said ... (12:22 AM) : 

Awesome photo as always. This kid looks like a young (and better looking) Steven Jesse Bernstein.


Blogger Saucy said ... (2:05 AM) : 

It's a good look, complemented by the background.


Blogger Kaja said ... (4:32 AM) : 

Love both the outfit and the wall. I think the effortless simplicity of his outfit is genious.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:02 AM) : 

for anon 7:18
I never said this was a style icon or high style but it is inspiring - at least to me


Blogger Yi said ... (11:23 AM) : 

geek chic! this is my type of guy! love the glasses and that wife beater white shirt.. i do think he needs to rethink his shoes.. but he does look non-chalant with them and that's part of the charm isn't it?


Blogger wideyed said ... (12:47 PM) : 

His personal style aura makes the outfit look good, even though he's wearing gross shoes & ill-fitting pants.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:03 PM) : 

finally, a man wearing pants that fit! i am so tired of the skin-tight look. Bravo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 PM) : 

Hey, I have those glasses. They are Dita E=mc2. I love them like a child!


Anonymous billy said ... (11:50 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:53 PM) : 

where can i find a hat like that???


Blogger Pretty Young Thing said ... (8:47 PM) : 

thats on Thompson on the other side of 60 Thompson...


Anonymous Sue said ... (7:04 AM) : 

I love this photograph.... he looks outstanding in his present position and I would advise him never to move! :-)


Anonymous CM said ... (3:32 AM) : 

I have a feeling the man on the picture is very satisfied with the shot. It shows exactly what he is trying to accomplish with his style.
