Autumn love.


Blogger Leila & Sole said ... (1:18 PM) : 

Scott you are killing me! I already wanted to be old, now I am obsessed with it. I love their classic outdoors inspired look, this is my favorite style of all time. Sooner or later, polyester, lurex, liquid leggings, black lace, see through leggings, slashed fabrics. etc will all fade into obscurity, but good wools always remain.

Ridiculous. He wears like a child.
In this case the sort pants aren´t cool.
I like the shoes.

I think this is all about his scarf, her shirt and her sockless shoes.

I like the both very much, they look like feel very comfortable. A bit of scandinavian style. I adore his shoes and the short trousers.

Wow! Her outfit is the perfect fall look. She makes all these trends look completely effortless and classic. She nailed it!


Anonymous haapi said ... (1:52 PM) : 

OK, so her off-kilter plaid is highlighted by the off-kilter belt on the perfect jeans worn with the perfect shoe; all brand new, clearly. And his pant length echoes hers, and his checked scarf echoes hers... and it all reads like it took several hours and a stylist or two to put together...but SO WHAT! They look absolutely dee-vine!!


Blogger Don Prichard said ... (1:53 PM) : 

Comfortably casual!

I don't get what's with people wearing pants that don't fit them! High waters are NOT stylish, and no one can convince me otherwise.


Blogger Heather said ... (2:43 PM) : 

They're adorable!


Blogger Erin said ... (2:46 PM) : 

What a perfect couple - if they are a couple. I hope they are :) She looks fantastic, the entire outfit itself is totally androgynous, even her short hair, but she still looks like a very happy woman. And he just looks like a fun guy; his outfit is simple and comfy but it has that quirky scarf that really makes it his own.

To me they epitomize aging gracefully - learning how to be "older" but not "old."

Adorable. She resembles Glenn Close.


Anonymous m.edwin said ... (2:57 PM) : 

they compliment each other so well that to see just one of them apart from the other would be like stopping a good movie halfway through. Particularly like how they pick up each other's looks through a bold patterned shirt and scarf.


Blogger smilla said ... (3:04 PM) : 

@anonymus the first: ordinary?
They are extraordinary. Did you have a look in their faces?
But the short pants are too much in this case, I agree with fernando.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:16 PM) : 

marvelous, quintessential shot. - fashion and life is all about that.

those who do not understand - and i saw some posts in this forum - have got a lot to learn. ... maybe in the next life then.


Anonymous greendress said ... (3:19 PM) : 

Love her style. i haven't seen anyone wear her shirt in this manner for over a decade. and really love the symmetry between her shirt and her belt.


Anonymous John M. Doyle said ... (3:28 PM) : 

Photos such as these are a key as to why this blog is the terrific thing that it has become. We commonly think that style, fashionability and coolness are limited solely to the young, but really, the ability to do and to be all those things is limited only by what someone carries in their heads. I am a 50 year-old who loves clothing and the theatre of clothing as much as I ever did when I was a 20 year-old, but (like these people) I now have the advantage of a longer perspective and a continually evolving sense of how to present myself in the piazza of public life. Clothing and style are, after all, a continuously changing repose to our evolving sense of the self and the larger culture that surrounds us. It is how we mediate between the fantasies and the realities of our existence.
Thank you, again, Scott. I love every picture and await many more which have yet to come.


Blogger Gil said ... (3:34 PM) : 

Seemingly effortless, laidback, urban style on on an older (post-hypster) couple. WONDERFUL!

I don't care who they are or whether they were able to spot Adrian Greiner riding his bicycle with his arse half hanging out... these two are magnificent and a breath of unpretentious fresh air. They are being themselves and take casual to a refined and chic level. They both complement each other perfectly. More like them and less Edith Piafs, please.



Blogger Ahmed said ... (8:41 PM) : 

To be honest I haven't commented here for years now. However, I just couldn't past this one up. This is truly timeless. I love seeing older ladies/gents pull effortless class. Who ever said style had to do with AGE!

It's difficult not to smile when looking at this picture! Chic and timeless.


Blogger susanna said ... (1:49 AM) : 

This is an incredible example of androgeny worn by both a man and a women. I see androgenous style far more often worn by women.

Also, androgeny is hard to meld so smoothly with such timeless style often it's more outrageous, gender-bending and angst-y.

I'd love to see this couple swap outfits completely! I bet they'd still both look amazing.

Hmmm . . . interesting to read the comments . . . I'm probably nearer their age than most commentators and what I really DON'T like the way they are trying SO hard while pretending not to . . . everything is VERY considered . . . What's so wrong with caring how we look !?! Does this make sense ?

now this is what i'm talkin' about! if you want short trousers, my fellow whippersnappers, learn from yer elders and have the guts to cut them off instead of rolling them up in fear the trend might not last...;-))

very cool btw. both of them. they're perfect accessories for each other...har har


Blogger pixie said ... (7:11 AM) : 

I'm closer to this couples age that the typical "model" on this blog. Its odd to me how any time you have a pix of someone "older" everyone comments on their age, its so... ageist.

Are the younger readers here really surprised that someone over 40 can pull things together? Why is their age always mentioned? I've loved fashion since I was a little girl and I always will.

My mom is 83 and she has a wonderful style that is all her own, always has had it and I can't imagine why anyone would think that would change as she got older.

Anyhow they are a cute couple, casual, effortless. I do think his pants are a shade short but I've been seeing that more and more on these pages.



Blogger zuza said ... (7:22 AM) : 

I think they are two pices of the same apple :) I like them shoes a lot.

Blogger kerfuffler said ... (9:46 AM) : 

The problem with tight, too short pants is that they make feet look too big. But the designers are thinking well ahead of the consumers on this------they know that when highwaters are declared "out", all the current devotees will toss theirs and buy new things. How nice for the industry! Pants that ill fitting will never be classics.

Her pants will be wearable pretty much forever.


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (10:09 AM) : 

Wow - they both look super, although I'm starting to grow weary of the whole scarf thing.


Blogger alice said ... (10:59 AM) : 

Everytime I feel like commenting on your blog, I accidentaly read the other comments, and then remember how they ruin the picture for me.

I love how casual they are, how androgenous and how well they go together as a couple.
I don't care if they took all day to get dressed or if his pants will be "out" next week (whatever that means).
It's the perfect couple and I enjoyed being able to see them through your photo.

Everybody is excited about this being an older couple so stylish....well we have to keep in shape if we want to look somewhere close to this.... great style.


Anonymous Voon said ... (2:27 PM) : 

I love it when couples have complementary fashions. Probably without even realizing they do. Without trying. Effortless, elegant and casual all at the same time. Great capture.

Then there are those who go overboard by wearing matching outfits, or exact color schemes.

Loved the blurred image of the guy on the bicycle too.

These two are healthy, happy, have great style and are undoubtedly quite dedicated to being physically fit - and somehow I'm betting yoga and cycling.
Now, as for your readers, so many foolish, pathetic, ageist comments. This lovely pair are not Methuselah and his wife. Honestly, must everyone be focused on being a teenager? RELAX! Example - Sting looks far better and sexier now than ever before.

Oh my gosh... you are killing me, too. This is all about the woman! She wears it all so well. And the hair! Love love love love. So classic!

I am fifty too - and just the fact that The Sart is my homepage shows that I am as obsessed with clothes as I ever was!
As others have said, why the hell not?! Why is it such a surprise? have we really become SO youth- obsessed that we can't see that youthful beauty will always disappear, but style lasts forever? It is artistic expression and an enjoyment of colour, texture, shape and proportion... beautiful well as a distillation of how you present yourself to the world. It's also FUN, so why would one want to give it up just as onegains more confidence at it?
Scott - you have always had older people on your pages and unexpected people of all types and that is one of the many reasons you have been so refreshing and so successful. I salute you xx

anyway, this picture is delightful...i would love to have his slacks...looking for khaki's with a cuff for women...and i have ordered a pair of oxford's from steve a tribute to beautiful her...
