Divinement rétro !


Blogger Robert said ... (8:44 AM) : 

Great photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:51 AM) : 

love it, but why the sweater vest in summer?


Blogger jkh said ... (8:58 AM) : 

a touch of dustbowl


Blogger Susan B said ... (9:02 AM) : 

Lovely photo! It suits your subject perfectly.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:05 AM) : 

Very sweet shot - makes me want to bundle him up and take home. Love the shoes.

Timeless. Beautiful. Thank you.

Eye opening moment: This is the first time I've ever liked the look of tassle loafers! Amazing what a little sprezzatura can do...I've always associated the tassle with forked-tonged attorneys, and here they are looking earthy, honest and legit. Thanks for the perspective!


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (9:32 AM) : 

I like his hair


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:51 AM) : 

The first thing that comes to my mind is "Bauhaus 1930´s"...
Very nice indeed.


Blogger Jessica deLeeuw said ... (9:54 AM) : 

very nice!


Blogger KJ said ... (9:56 AM) : 

Fascinating historical pastiche--looks like an old daguerrotype or something.


Blogger KJ said ... (9:59 AM) : 

whatever the intent was here, I don't think it's working; she looks terribly overburdened and dragged down by the weight of her bag and clothes. The odd bunchiness of the skirt, and the way that the shininess of the top highlights all the crumples and wrinkles, are also unfortunate, in my eyes. Plus, white shoes with this ensemble? Really? (I *do* like the glasses, though!)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:09 AM) : 

Just saw Belmondo last night in BREATHLESS and this jacket- also in Paris!- is the total opposite. But BOTH are great!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:31 AM) : 

I like the way the high vamp tasseled loafers complement the cut of his trousers. The sweater cut and fit ruin the otherwise nonchalant look. Great b/w shot!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:37 AM) : 

Nice! - and a very August Sander-like shot :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:55 AM) : 

this guy definitely wears his clothes... nothing too precious... looks great


Blogger chalkboards said ... (10:57 AM) : 

I feel like I'm looking at an old family photo. The bowtie is the extreme of bowties. Very nicely shot and I like that you made it black and white. Have a good weekend Sart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:15 AM) : 

It's a very Lanvin kind of look.
The way Alber Elbaz dresses these days. But Mr. Tonchi is much slimmer and that gives it a whole different push. Great photo by the way !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:32 AM) : 

amazing! sart, did you use any flashes here? the contrast is epic!


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (11:41 AM) : 

Only black-and-white could have conveyed that image properly.

It's superb.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:48 AM) : 

Love the photo, the subject, the outfit. This gentleman has an amazing style. Love it!!


Blogger Caroline Bingley said ... (12:34 PM) : 

Like Wittgenstein at Cambridge


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:15 PM) : 

This must be antique.


Blogger Butch said ... (1:48 PM) : 

A miss, unfortunately: tie too large and skewed, cardigan/vest unbuttoned at the bottom looks sloppy beneath the jacket. The general unkempt air also works against the effectiveness of the pants length by making the observer uncertain as to whether its intentional or not.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:59 PM) : 

depression era


Blogger OTC said ... (3:07 PM) : 

Wonderful picture. At firt glance I thought it was a set shot from an old Italian movie. Then I realized that, of course, you just took it!

Another example of not only your great eye for style, but also for setting and mood.

Thanks Scott.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:27 PM) : 

Amazing! I really love the Tasselloafers.


Blogger Jaymie said ... (3:38 PM) : 

I love the mood his clothes transcend. It implies character, strength, and confidence... Beautiful photo!


Blogger Laurence John said ... (3:58 PM) : 

this is my kind of thing.
the amount of 1920-50s references in your blog seems to be on the increase.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:56 PM) : 

cambridge, circa 1920s? - minette


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:59 PM) : 

Not feeling the clothes, but this picture is priceless. What time of day did you take this pic, Sart, and how was the light?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:47 PM) : 

maBarton Fink meets Richard Nixon


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:21 PM) : 

Any outstanding reason to go black and white with this particular one?

I'd kinda like to see it in color.


Blogger DK said ... (10:13 PM) : 

This guy looks like he has something to do today. Very deliberate delivery.


Blogger R.A. Sasayama said ... (10:22 PM) : 

eh, i'm not really into the short pants thing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:38 PM) : 

There is simply no better advice than this ...If U want to look your best!

Remember hipster pants are a trend and trenda always looks good on a few people...but everyone wants to look like the few!!



Blogger zuccotto said ... (11:43 PM) : 

If I didn't know he is a fashion world person of import by the Sartorialist headline, I'd say, oh, he's wearing flood pant jodphurs with a too small jacket and a crooked tie, and figure I'm seeing a comedian.

I'm fairly old, and don't remember people wearing the squeezing-into-jacket-look-on purpose in other decades, so I don't get the retro oohing and ahing.
Maybe I missed it.

That this is cool is something I'm working on getting used to. By the time I get there, it'll be over.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:56 AM) : 

especially love these shots that bring out the love it/not so love it feelings in viewers ..

yes! immediately! sort of went to my soul in some way...some of these photos do that...

magnificent...thank you so much for this one in particular


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:24 PM) : 

What colour exactly is that suit? Why can't we see it in colour?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:54 PM) : 

lovely indeed, but aren't you a little bit obssesed with mr. tonchi?


Blogger Cut of cloth said ... (4:05 PM) : 

A strong look
Academic Aristo charm
Hooded eyes deep in thought
Next moment just a breath away
eyes scan
well thumbed notes
in pocket
crumpled ideas ready
for print
a moment away


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 PM) : 

stefano looks exactly the same as he always has....what is his secret and what is his stylish sister isabella up to these days?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:44 AM) : 

Does all Stefano styled !? Between M.Pilati and him ... there is questions !!!
Fabulous ! And the bow tie ... a mix with Alber Elbaz !?

P.S:I'm waiting for your exposition with Colette !!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:03 AM) : 

if ever there was an opportunity to use black and white, this was it. What a classic look captured in classically beautiful photography.
wow i sound inarticulate.
