Well, both gentlemen look amazing...but the second one (can he be American? seems so implausible based on his style) I want to marry. Sorry, husband!


Blogger Niles K said ... (10:11 AM) : 

Looks like a Filson bag. Excellent!


Blogger mockumentary said ... (10:24 AM) : 

Hadn't known that this was a euro thing!
I love the second outfit. Rich colors made even better with the loved-in bag and shoes.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (10:25 AM) : 

It is a nice touch, and you can be sure you are not going to drop a glove when you are reaching in for coffee change, your keys or your entry card, right? I love the Filson briefcase, I am going to get one of their bags as my next gym duffle!!! Jorge from W Palm Beach


Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (10:28 AM) : 

I like it and I haven't seen it done around here- I could be the first! Nice colors in both, and the lower look I could almost lift in toto for myself.I like the polished casualness of it.Great looking pieces individually and well chosen together.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:30 AM) : 

Both of those shots are amazing. i absolutely love the shoes on the second picture.

Agreed : second guy looks very Italian to my French eyes...


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

I've been doing this since before it was "cool", and i'm only 28.


Blogger . . . said ... (10:47 AM) : 

The second man's details are flawless. I love how his spectacles are placed in his shirt in the front.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:51 AM) : 

Why is it the simple ideas often prove the most impressive? Now I have an excuse to go out and buy a new pair of gloves!


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

Nice sartorial flourish, shows wit and charm. I like the picture of the gentleman in the camel coat,what a lovely smile - i'm guessing he doesn't work in finance.


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

ahahah these gloves want to runaway from the pocket!!
the second man looks like marc jacobs!!


Blogger The Spicers said ... (11:17 AM) : 

The second guy has to be European, right?


Blogger chief shannopin said ... (11:24 AM) : 

definitely a case of form over function here. gloves are for hands, not pockets. surely a nice idea if it warms up, though.


Blogger thwany said ... (11:28 AM) : 

this is one of those things that are so simple and smart that it makes everyone ask, why didn't i think of that before?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:29 AM) : 

He is American - that's Gabriel - who sells Thom Browne' Black Fleece line at Brooks Brothers.


Blogger Red Flashlight said ... (11:34 AM) : 

This is what I like about the Sartorialist. Fashion can be just practical! Putting gloves in your breast pocket undermines the silly, outdated pretension of a handkerchief.


Blogger *atelier said ... (11:50 AM) : 

lino ieluzzi at it again. damn i want his wardrobe.


Blogger Rita said ... (11:53 AM) : 

The second guy looks great. I really like the colors he is wearing. And the gloves in the chest pocket add a very nice touch to the overall look of both gentlemen.


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (11:56 AM) : 

Super photos, Sart. Well done. It's all about the details.


Blogger norawoah said ... (12:04 PM) : 

the second man knows his colors, textures and how to layer perfectly.


Blogger Chris Johnson said ... (1:51 PM) : 

I love everything about these photographs. Everything.

I particularly love the color story of the second guy - and the serenely confident way he's standing before your camera. He's an intriguing subject.

I'm also curious about how he would look in those glasses...


Blogger Dominica said ... (1:58 PM) : 

The first gentleman looks classic but is very edgy if you look closely ! The gloves used as a "pochette" in his upper pocket are fab and I've noticed a great scarf under his jacket ; it looks like a 'changeant' kind of fabric changing from lila into a fuchsia-purple...10+

The second guy has thé cutest face and has a smart and effortless chique look.
Nothing too special but I really like the shades of colour he has used..
If he's European like 'Iheartfashion' suggests, I sincerely hope he lives in Antwerp :-D


Blogger Paige Paigen said ... (2:05 PM) : 

Please, spare us from the Filson bags, unless you're on a hunting trip. Filson bags in the city are just an early 21st century version of a yuppie "outdoorsy" pretention.

Though, I will admit, I'd love to invest a bunch of money in Filson just so I could get them to start making some of their clothing in black, with full linings.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:05 PM) : 

I just love both of these! Maybe my obsessive compulsiveness is showing, but I have a strong need to see every stitch they're wearing laid out. Don't you hate when there's just a hint of interesting fabric peeking out and you can't figure out if it's a sweater or a scarf or a what?

I love the personal touches that the first man is wearing. The outfit is not only interesting, but it also looks both warm and lightweight, which isn't always easy to put together.

The second man has just a nice look overall. PERHAPS a little too thought-out, but effort never goes unnoticed. I'd personally feel stifled in so many layers, but I do love the length of his pants and those shoes. And the gloves look so toasty and warm!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:12 PM) : 

Paul Stuart has been featuring this gesture in its windows for at least twenty years.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:18 PM) : 

There is actually an American flag behind the second guy. Definitely not European.


Blogger nik arnold said ... (2:25 PM) : 

The first gentleman is putting a nice touch to a jacket he wore in December 2007 (check out the Sartorialist archive and there he is in same jacket) This is how you keep things fresh.
The second gentleman: bravo! From the gloves, scarf, eyeglasses and handbag, he really can accessorize while maintaining a masculine look. Very good.


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

really cute!

second guy is a handsome devil. clothes or no clothes.:)

I completely fell in love with the 2nd gentleman. This face, those (hidden) accesories!

The second one looks like Jude Law.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:11 PM) : 

The second guy is great. The colour scheme seems perfect to my eyes as well as the length of the trousers, and the cardigan is adorable.

Two regular guys.

Nice pictures.


Blogger Joêlle said ... (5:30 PM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:33 PM) : 

BFF! Ben a while, hasn't it. Impeccable styling as always: that purple scarf peaking underneath the coat is sublime. Second dude is lovely too-got it right on the pants length and the shoes. A little too studied perhaps, but hey, it works.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:35 PM) : 

Urban mob.


Blogger Mo said ... (5:40 PM) : 

Fine and dandy...I am in love with the guy in the second picture =)


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (5:50 PM) : 

The coat in the first picture is just great!
But the bag of the second picture is what I want!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:20 PM) : 

BFM!!! I know we're not supposed to call him that, but he's one of my top 3 faves, ever, among Sartorialist subjects. Lavender scarf, classic camel coat -- he looks super, as always. The guy in pic 2 looks good too, but sorry, my heart belongs to BFM!


Blogger Camille said ... (6:46 PM) : 

The man in the second photo looks so confident in his style. Love the maroon cardigan--he looks so handsome.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:05 PM) : 

hey these guys are well dressed grown ups! how'd they get in here?


Blogger Dennice {Fringe} said ... (7:27 PM) : 

Both men look very stylish, elegant and confident. I wish I knew them both, they both have kind eyes.

I appreciate the fact that you chose two men with different styles, but equally fashionable.

I adore a man or a woman who can accessorize with flair.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:33 PM) : 

The warmth of the honey colored herringbone caught in the sun is sooooo lovely. And the stitch detail of the breast pocket with the glove fingers of the same-but-not-the-same color sticking out? Pinch me! It would all be intoxicating without that purple tie - but he DID wear the purple tie, and I love him for it.
And I love him for carrying the newspaper under his arm, too.

I second the earlier comment about the oxymoronic nature of urban Filson. I suppose a certain segment of the market, if they could, would pay an extra charge for the dog hair, feathers and blood that are on my husband's Filson jacket, along with the shotgun shells, chew can, dog cookies and old PB&J that are usually in the pockets. Maybe I should offer to break-in these garments for people who don't have ready access to the "elements of authenticity" mentioned above. For a nominal fee I'd be happy to toss a person's Filson jacket - or bag in the back of the truck for a month during pheasant season. The PB&J would definitely be an additional charge...


Blogger SparkleQueen said ... (8:20 PM) : 

1st: very nice use of complimentary colors and I love how you captured the movement of him walking with the flap of his coat like that. awesome!

2nd: An overall nice color palette! Also your composition is impeccable, even though he is standing right in the middle of your photo, it doesn't look boringly symmetrical.

I put your blog under 'Daily Needs' rather than 'daily reads' because honestly, it's so nice to wake up and check your blog for some inspiration and beautiful photography. I am a regular visitor on your blog and I hope to comment on every single post!!

second guy does not look american


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:39 PM) : 

the second picture kind of looks like a cross between albert hammond jr. and my piano instructor.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:52 PM) : 

He is American. He works as a salesman for Brooks Brothers! See him there!


Blogger Michael Joseph Owens said ... (9:59 PM) : 

Wow. The young bearded dude looks like a perfectly wrapped holiday package. Every detail—glasses, scarf, tie, gloves, bad, beard—is beautifully (and calculatedly?) rendered. The contrasts of color and texture are really dynamic. Two thumbs up for this handsome man. Just the antidote the eye needs on a chill day.


Blogger Amber said ... (10:05 PM) : 

Yeah, that second picture is so classy. Great find.



Blogger Remah said ... (11:05 PM) : 

Whoa! The man in the second picture really has such an amazing look going. I love how perfectly he layered his clothes, very chic!


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:12 PM) : 

I like the coat in the first picture, and the gloves are well done. Yep, the bag is Filson - I own its bigger brother and it's the best bag of its kind, truly. It's not too faux-faux hunting, as Gemma Catherine opined, but it's tough and well-made to brave crowds, subways, rain, and other hazards. Just does its job well with a bit of rugged flare. And not everyone has one.

Nice shots, Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:23 AM) : 

2nd man...guy in 2nd photo...Gabriel...whatever...European or American, he looks hot.

Love the second gentleman’s ensemble. He looks great.


Blogger Miguel said ... (7:04 AM) : 

I think they both look great in a very different, yet paralell, kind of way and style...

Defenetly a nice look... But The thing about the gloves in the pocket I think I saw it before... Years ago.


Blogger Emma said ... (7:48 AM) : 

I love the purple scarf from the first picture, it creates a soft harmony with the colour of the coat.
And I must say that I'm absolutely in love with the second guy, from head to toe ! The pair of glasses is genius.


Blogger TMFA said ... (8:53 AM) : 

ai ai the second gentleman is rockin it. Loving the outfit.


Blogger LINDSAY said ... (9:27 AM) : 

Photo #2 is dreamy. What an attractive man!!!! Thanks for the eye candy.


Blogger Darcy said ... (9:45 AM) : 

I love all the little details in the second fellow's mid-section. The waistcoat, the glasses, the tie, the scarf. They all go together so smashingly, I need to flesh out my man-accessories repertoire.


Blogger Jill said ... (11:13 AM) : 

Love this creative without trying to hard. Must show my man...and I adore your washcloth in the pj pocket. Too clever and such humour!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:43 AM) : 

Now why would I want to put my gloves inin my breast pocket, instead of putting them on, if I do not wear them while walking on the street, when then?


Blogger said ... (11:43 AM) : 

Great pictures, both great in their own style.

I'd like to ask: beeing a woman I often don't know what to do with my gloves when I'm not wearing them. Keep them in the bag would be the easier thing, but could/should a woman stick them in a pocket like man do? Which impression does that give? I often end up carring them both in one hand or when I have those elbow high ones, I sometimes put them around my neck. Anymore ideas/comments on women and gloves? Thanks!


Blogger Bini said ... (12:37 PM) : 

The second one doesn't strike me as a specially well composed outfit. It like the window of a Gap shop! All items individually are ok but put together seem to turn into something very lifeless. I think the jacket and the scarf were the wrong choice!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:07 PM) : 

About the second gentleman:
"Che gran figo", as we said in Italy


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:07 PM) : 

1st guy's lavender scarf is really nice, but i love 2nd guy's burgundy cardigan. i say he looks quintessentially american prep, and could easily slip into a wes anderson movie as a snappy librarian or an archeology professor. great shots!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:42 PM) : 

congratulations, Scott, on the kudos you received in today's NYT Magazine -- your blog has been such a bright spot for many of us. you deserve the great write-up.


Blogger Ridonkulus said ... (3:22 PM) : 

i wonder if it looks good on women. i do like the look of gloves sticking out of side slant pockets, although mine usually falls out of my coat. NYC looks suspiciously snow-free. chicago is knee deep in slush.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:55 PM) : 

Oh yes the second boy is so delicious.

But why is everyone making a big deal about the gloves- don't you ever take your gloves off bc it warmed up or you need to use your fingers? So petty.

The picture is the best!!!!!

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The guy in the second photo is very smart. I lke the casualness of his outfit.
Actually, at thirties I wish I were dress like would be different buy... It would be nice if I ve got this knack of mixing textures, colours, oldies looking things with modern...
Let's wait and see.
Nice idea : putting the gloves ion the chest pocket: not that very elegant but useful... It avoids losing gloves... I am used to lose mines most every winter.

At this point in age, I would not say one thing is 100% local, specially when is related to very similar conditions after all a pocket is a pocket.

I'm loving the bigger images!

Everything pictured on the second man is just absolutely perfect. His entire ensemble paired with those small but very carefully chosen accessories makes me love this look even more.

I love the burgundy cardigan he's sporting and I do have one myself but the cut is lower. I'd love to know where his cardigan is from.

By the way, can anyone confirm if that's the Filson 256 briefcase or 257 he's carrying? I absolutely love it!

Blogger mr. stiles said ... (2:01 PM) : 

Those who love Filson should be very happy about its popularity. They make products of exceptional quality and should be supported. There is no need to prove you are a hunter in order to carry their bag. That is ridiculous. Nor is there any reason to prove you are a messenger in order to carry a messenger bag. I think our society has moved beyond that. If you can carry it off, then carry it with you.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:41 AM) : 

it's funny that everyone seems to think that the second guy is European - when i first saw the picture i immediately had the impression of the new modern young American. maybe it was the slightly muted and dusky red and blue, or the reference to mid-century professors and scholars, but the whole ensemble just evokes a sense of both utility and casual class which perfectly describe my idea of the new young American professional.

i do agree that this American aesthetic does incorporate the sum of our various stylistic heritages (Italian, French, British), but all the while it maintains that "made in the USA" confidence.

so, while i am getting the European vibes, i see this look more like "if Andrew Wyeth made a trip to the big city for the weekend."
