Did you go back in time?


Blogger MonsieurMonsieur said ... (7:49 AM) : 

Was there a Great Gatsby fan club meeting this weekend? Nice clothes, but they really do fall into the realm of movie costumes.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:49 AM) : the 3rd background figure.she and the woman to the right definitely foil the gentleman..Perfect images and outfits for the summer


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:52 AM) : 

What a wonderful event this is! Would be so much fun to go along; love this era. Great pics.


Blogger Gєммα;∂ιℓєммα. said ... (7:55 AM) : 

Woah, is that an orange flower in his lapel? If so, it even matches the lady's necklace perfectly.

I love his glasses.


Blogger Nessa said ... (8:08 AM) : 

Beautiful picture! I love it! That dress is beautiful and it fits her perfectly.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:13 AM) : 

Any idea on the watch? Looks like the Patek I've been eyeing for a while now, but the photo doesn't enlarge enough to tell for sure.


Blogger La Maison Fou said ... (8:14 AM) : 

Love this roaring 20's inspired look. Flappers, straw hats and flowers headbands don't see them much these days.


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:14 AM) : 

...they seem from another time...brilliant!!!


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:24 AM) : 

Absolutely beautiful makes me wish I could be magically transported there.


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (8:51 AM) : 

How beautiful.

And she's wearing a hat!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:07 AM) : 

they are gorgeous!


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:07 AM) : 

Absolute perfection, with perhaps the one exception of the buttons on his sleeves.


Blogger JULES said ... (9:13 AM) : 

Wow im speechless what a great photo...its probably in the works already but you need to have a published book of your work you are amazing!


Blogger Erik Hoff said ... (9:15 AM) : 

That is an awesome jacket he's wearing; I've got to find one.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:18 AM) : 

finally, a bowles fan.


Blogger noelakadjtambour said ... (9:21 AM) : 

great photo, it's nice to see loose- cut clothing on men


Blogger Hawa said ... (9:25 AM) : 

love the "sheltering sky" reference, the gentleman and the lady really look like they have stepped out of the movie...his outfit is very john malkovich!


Blogger James Jean said ... (9:42 AM) : 

I forget the name of this event, but the theme is pre 50's. I've finally put the pieces of the puzzle together hehe


Blogger Caroline Bingley said ... (9:53 AM) : 

The only thing I would change is that I would have been there (being a swing dancer at one point in my life).

Thank heaven for summer's day without men in ribbon belts and pants with whales embroidered on them.


Blogger Nadir H. said ... (10:34 AM) : 

It looks like everybody dresses awesomely in the Governor's island


Blogger Maria Confer said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Lovely, I wish everyone dressed like this everyday!!


Blogger Jamie Jonathan Ball said ... (10:45 AM) : 

wonderful vintage art deco stylings.. the best most fashionable era before garish colours were invented *ahem*


Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (11:08 AM) : 

I'm in love with the crease in his trousers and with the pin (type thing) in his tie.

I'd love to see what socks he was wearing.


Anonymous marie said ... (11:10 AM) : 

This is very beautiful!


Blogger Karoline said ... (11:28 AM) : 

Love this look, fantastic jacket!


Blogger Petulia said ... (11:35 AM) : 

So beautiful, since last year I have been waiting for the governor's island pictures.They are so wonderful!


Blogger Me said ... (11:47 AM) : 

It's really the proportions of his ensemble that make this photo stunning. Not everyone knows how to wear an elegant high waist.


Blogger Fannah said ... (12:13 PM) : 

That woman is just not from this age..


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

Easily one of the best pictures I've ever seen on Sartorialist!



Anonymous Nicole said ... (12:36 PM) : 

Brilliant photo and what an amazing couple. I love vintage looks.


Blogger its for your own good said ... (12:44 PM) : 

i absolutely love this latest series of pictures. im sure im not the only one who wishes he was born about 75 years earlier after seeing these.


Blogger yanqin said ... (12:49 PM) : 

the governor's island shots are amazing.


Blogger junglesiren said ... (1:17 PM) : 

Well, it is a far cry from Morocco but the outfits sure ring true. Linen, yikes, I normally dislike it but under The Sheltering Sky it's a must.

I like that they left no detail untouched. The vintage shades are super.


Blogger Miiicha said ... (1:22 PM) : 

ah this gives me cosy summer feeling!


Blogger L said ... (1:41 PM) : 

I Love this picture. Very elegant and summery. Very inspiring.


Blogger J said ... (1:45 PM) : 

Is the title of this post a reference to the "Gilgamesh" anime? I somehow doubt it, but if it is I give you geek-cred.


Blogger crystal said ... (1:49 PM) : 

Whatever event that was looks very cool and fun!


Blogger Cartey said ... (2:05 PM) : 

What struck me was actually their postures. They're very "in character". :p

The couple just... match!


Anonymous Le 21eme said ... (2:13 PM) : 

This event always looks like so much fun! I wish I could be there!



Blogger Hanna Persson said ... (2:24 PM) : 

this is so elegant!


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

Nothing quite exceeds the charm of soft rumpled linen on a warm afternoon. This man's is perfection. I have never understood why people insist on ironing this lovely fabric into a small-minded conformity.


Blogger ZEPETIT said ... (3:33 PM) : 

A photo full os light!



Blogger aimee said ... (3:37 PM) : 

nick carraway?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:38 PM) : 

I can barely see the gentlemans sunglasses, but I know that I want them. Badly!


Blogger Sarah said ... (3:58 PM) : 

GratefulOne, you are wrong. Yes, for some people it's costume. But many dedicated, elegant people dress like this everyday. It is part of their lifestyle and shouldn't be dismissed as costume. Gorgeous, Sart!


Anonymous Gaylene said ... (4:24 PM) : 

Dear Sartorialist, I am new to your blog, so forgive me if I'm teaching you to suck eggs, but have you ever attended Goodwood Revival in England? It's held in Sept - you'd love it!


Anonymous Tanya said ... (4:25 PM) : 

I'm so tired of seeing the comments in the vein of "Looks like a costume/Nobody dresses like this/This isn't street style." This event may be an event, but I know dozens and dozens of people who dress like this almost every single day. It's a costume if you have to specifically go out and find pieces to make a costume, and you LOOK like you're wearing a costume. If people LOOK organic and right in these outfits, then it's no longer a costume but a straight up fashion statement.


Blogger .Kate. said ... (5:35 PM) : 

Char-ming. *love it*

Circa 39!

Oh Wow! for me this great shot is all about the accessories. as a photo, i love the way it's tightly cropped.


Anonymous Charlotte K said ... (5:50 AM) : 

Lovely photos from this event but I would hardly call them "On the street"!


Blogger Some Like it said ... (6:58 AM) : 

Love all those photos! Beautiful :-)


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (7:09 AM) : 

I've never heard of Governor's Island. But this 'festival' looks very cool.


Blogger Angeles Almuna said ... (9:12 AM) : 

Fabulous pictures, beautiful day and chic people!!! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:19 AM) : 

maybe the watch is cartier tank?


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:26 AM) : 

The style is very different but classic
Love it
U D E S H I London try to go and see also in Milano


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:45 AM) : 

So polo


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

The Governor Island pics really tip over to the "costumey" side. Granted, I love a Great Gatsby look every once in awhile, but I think this is more of a 20's club meeting or something. Thanks!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:43 AM) : 

polo indeed... wooster strikes


Blogger A Super Dilettante said ... (7:29 AM) : 

Loving his green tie!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:40 AM) : 

They look like they just have arrived there from a timetravel machine. How they don't belong there.. I am loving the colors. Even her lipstick does not look like a recent one! Loving the couple..


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:52 PM) : 

Every detail of the gentleman is perfection. Finding it hard to believe that he dressed himself.
This couple is also a testament to "clothes making the person".


Anonymous melanie said ... (4:18 PM) : 

sean and his lady lookin fab! i love it :)


Blogger Sylvia said ... (11:29 PM) : 

fabulous, fabulous picture. captures such a moment. wonderful work.


Blogger soo-see said ... (12:47 PM) : 

my apologies for being so fashionably naive – but, all of these pictures from governor's island have *blown* my midwestern mind... is this just how people live/dress on the island? is it a movie set? it's completely gorgeous but it's almost odd how everyone looks the same... just wondering if there was a reason for it.


Anonymous Sara Lua said ... (6:35 PM) : 

They are perfect, down to their shaded spectacles!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:16 PM) : 

This is a beautiful photo. You have captured many things. It is really very interesting how at this moment in time, we collectively seem to be hankering for a gentler past.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:56 PM) : 

Oh he realy looks like Oscar Wilde. Pure dandysme!


Blogger Martin Diegelman said ... (3:13 AM) : 

Nice Paul Bowles reference...


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:07 PM) : 

i love that little peep of light on the woman's chin.


Anonymous Dr. Nisha said ... (2:45 AM) : 

Kool dude ;)


Anonymous CM said ... (1:23 PM) : 

There's no vintage here, this is contemporary! Everything on the gent is very inspiring; the hair, the glasses, the fabrics, the watch, the high pants, the dashes of leather/tortoise/orange, even how the pocket hangs down a bit. Very inspiring and very today.
