Charvet Event At Saks San Francisco - part 1

I visited and took a few photos at the Charvet store while I was in Paris for the women's collections. I used some of the photos to illustrate our event.
This little corner of the Paris store really captures the essence of luxury and elegance that is Charvet.

The event was so great and it was wonderful to meet so many of my San Francisco readers . Thanks to everyone that came out. I will write more detail about the event for tonight's post but I wanted to get these first shots up this morning..

Re the cufflink cornucopia: I learned recently, to my delight, that these "nameless" knots are in fact called turkshead links or (even better) turtles...


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

hmmm... what about just "silk cufflinks"? And besides... I want a collection like that at home ;)


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

(the young lady in the third last picture)what a lovely smile! :)


Blogger MARIA H said ... (11:29 AM) : 

What a change of scenes!
San Franscisco is such a refreshing place. How is the weather?
HM did this catalog thing with the "style" of the area some time ago...kind of staged -of course-.
Can you stroll to different areas and capture people with your small camera obscura street fighter?


Blogger Just an Observation said ... (11:46 AM) : 

Another term thatI am familiar with is "Silk-knots" , never heard of the other two (turkshead & turtles), always happy to learn new terminology...THANKS!

Hi Sar,
Q for Charvet.
In regards to the whole slim tie going on these days....what's considered an appropriate pairing of shirt and suit and how should the neckwear be worn.

Maria - It's been grey & overcast all weekend, and it rained last night.

I love the bathrobe. Makes me think of something from Wooster & Jeeves.


Blogger 10WordReviews said ... (12:36 PM) : 

In the first shot, where you identify "Mr. Colban (glasses)..." They are both wearing glasses

what a nice presentation you did at saks. i enjoyed your slide show but the lighting made the pictures hard to see.


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:50 PM) : 

Love the cuff links. Will you be able to shoot some SF street fashion.


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

i really miss your street style photos.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (4:22 PM) : 

I will be shooting in New York again starting Wednesday!

Hey I know those "Two fabulous young ladies".

They are, on the left, the talented Marcy Carmack, stylist and owner of Chic Wardrobe Solutions, her dog Arabella, and friend Kim Karp.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:39 PM) : 

I am a guy from SF and I thought that your photo (of the two women with the dog) captured a very distinctive "SF" look reflecting how many SF women dress, especially shopping. Their look seems a bit more subtle and comfortable than their LA or NYC counterparts. I am impressed that you selected this shot. Good eye!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:06 PM) : 

yey! re shooting those photos. glad to hear it :)


Blogger MARIA H said ... (11:37 PM) : 

Mr Sartorialist:
I'll spend le weekend in NYC going to some openings... -with lots of luck I'll run into you-


Blogger The Vintagent said ... (1:10 AM) : 

Thanks so much Sartorialist for your interview with Jean-Claude, who was charming and a real Old World artisan. It was a treat to see you in person as well and have a chat - the best part of the event the democratic nature of the crowd; young and not so, every race and sex represented. Refreshing!


Blogger marie said ... (2:17 AM) : 

I adore the cufflinks! So many colors! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:08 AM) : 

I miss your interview segments that were common in the early months of the Sartorialist. Especially the "most over-rated, and most under-rated" answers.
Congratulations on bringing to the public one of the classiest and well thought-out blogs to the web. The bar has definitely been raised by your efforts...may your success continue to flourish.


Blogger Dulwich_News said ... (8:03 AM) : 

I always enjoyed wearing Charvet and Battistoni ties because they made such elegant small bottleneck knots.

However, seeing that Mr. Colban has such a large knot I realise I might need some new ties. Or, hopefully I can manage to pull-off looking Retro/RatPack!


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (8:21 AM) : 

hey Heywood
Now that this is a full-time gig I will be doing more interviews and street shots etc.
I have been traveling so much but the next two months are pretty easy.


Blogger Lady Apple said ... (5:37 PM) : 

those 2 ladies look great!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:51 AM) : 

The cute girl with the bright smile...3rd from the bottom...what was she wearing? I love the hair, and the bronze studs on the top. Wish you had taken a picture of the entire outfit!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:01 AM) : 

Bloodyhell...I hate to admit it but I do fancy their shirts more. Sorry chaps, coloUr matters.
