Is the guy's bag by Filson?


Blogger MONI said ... (8:20 PM) : 

truly a great piece, the first one is beautiful!


Blogger Susan said ... (8:26 PM) : 

I like the first two photos the most! Not too fond of the third photo though. Too much different colors going on with that coat.


Blogger Amy said ... (8:31 PM) : 

I love the first one. It fits her so well and her shoes are great too.


Blogger loveroffashion said ... (8:44 PM) : 

I bought the most gorgeous vintage trench yesterday at Salvation Army for a whopping $2.99


Blogger Haley said ... (8:46 PM) : 

The double breasted jacket in the first image is gorgeous; so complimentary to the female silhouette, and quite parisienne...clearly a very fine tailoring job.

A filson bag and a burberry trench, never seen those before except on the 14 million people that I pass everyday. Also his pants are lacking a break, again.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:02 PM) : 

I totally heart the first one, it's so vampire...



Blogger Meagan said ... (9:07 PM) : 

I love gloria baum! I had the opportunity of meeting her two weeks ago and she is the sweetest woman ever and so inspirational!


Anonymous Nuria P said ... (9:09 PM) : 

the first picture so Edward scissorhands, extremely cool.
Second one, so Peter Petrelli of Heroes, sofisticated.
Someone help me with third picture? xxx


Anonymous Style Odyssey said ... (9:14 PM) : 

fantastic. first trench is simply beautiful. i like the color of the second. and third- stylishly summery in her short trench.
i'm really enjoying your burberry project!


Blogger K'arhol said ... (9:21 PM) : 

What a fabulous JOB !
The first photo is deliciously chic .


Blogger simplychic said ... (9:22 PM) : 

that first one is beautiful!


Blogger Solanah said ... (9:30 PM) : 

Love these, especially the top one.


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (9:34 PM) : 

Love the first trench photo. GORGEOUS!


Blogger stars&lilies said ... (9:34 PM) : 

I want to know what's going on in the first woman's mind. and the trench fits her so well. i love her boots, and that the last button on the right is unbuttoned, and the yellow stripes on the pavement.

she's so classy, so the graffiti almost throws me off, but it doesn't. she looks so grounded and comfortable.


Blogger Alia said ... (9:35 PM) : 

Burberry is quite clever, really. I never thought a Burberry trench could be quite "my style," but after seeing it done in such a diverse range of styles, and looking beautiful each time, I can absolutely envision myself wearing one!

Your blog really has contributed to a new way of looking at style (both on the street and on the runway). Every time I see someone making a visual statement on the Taipei MRT or the streets of Hong Kong I think, "He/She could make the Sartorialist." Photos like these ones you've done for Burberry have also changed the way I envision my own style. Thank you!


Blogger Francesca said ... (9:41 PM) : 

I think I need a nice trench in every color possible now.
I find it very inspiring that there are so many ways to wear one single item and you portray this idea too well!


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (9:51 PM) : 

LOVE that first pic & trench!!!


Blogger quynansea said ... (9:53 PM) : 

first photo is BEAUTIFUL
love the shoes

Blogger J.A.F. said ... (10:00 PM) : 

Love the second one. the Filson bag, of course.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:05 PM) : 

To Anonymous who passes by 14 million people every every day in Burberry trench & Filson bag:

Thanks for your useless comment. Perhaps it is time for you to move or start visiting other sites.

Being rude is not Chic!!!!!!!!!


Blogger Ryo Miyamoto: OTOMAYIM said ... (10:05 PM) : 

The first one is such a classic...Beautiful!



Anonymous John M. Doyle said ... (10:22 PM) : 

For some odd reason, I happened to be recently looking at some drawings of Poiret designs from the early-20th c., so when I looked at the woman in the first photo, I was struck by how much she resembled (in basic form) some of those designs from nearly 100 years ago. What I am most enjoying about "The Art of the Trench" is the manner in which a photo like this one, can conjure up such historical references without seeming at all mawkish-not necessarily an easy feat to pull off when dealing with "heritage goods" from a company with as old a pedigree as Burberry. For those of us who are in the fashion industry and are watching this campaign unfold, I do think that there are some relevant lessons to be found here for our own brands, be they new or old.


Blogger Chloe said ... (10:25 PM) : 

The first picture took my breath away. Love it!


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:31 PM) : 

Love the first photo - so elegant and such gorgeous curly hair. The second one is fairly expected. And the third one? Sorry - seems too much like mutton dressed as lamb. Yes, you can indeed dress too young for your age and only look older for it.


Blogger hi-d said ... (10:56 PM) : 

Love the 1st photo!


Anonymous Lauren said ... (11:00 PM) : 

Nothing beats a classic trench. Completes any look.


Blogger whateverfin said ... (11:19 PM) : 

Too bad these coats are so expensive! Poor college kids wanna look good too!


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (11:26 PM) : 

Stunningly beautiful photography! The first is mind-blowingly great.


Blogger Ljubica said ... (11:32 PM) : 

i just love that first shot.. everything about it


Blogger test said ... (11:55 PM) : 

this is such perfection. i love trench coats. the first one has great shape.


Blogger PJ said ... (12:07 AM) : 

The top trench is iconic. I want one.

What a fit on that first picture. Love it.


Blogger Monty Safari said ... (12:20 AM) : 

Absolutely adore the look of the first pic...that's stylin'!


Blogger The Backseat Stylers said ... (12:32 AM) : 

The first photo is my favourite so far of the Art of the Trench series. The coat fits her perfectly and her shoes are TDF. Great hair too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:49 AM) : 

Is it permissable for guys to be wearing womens jackets? I've done it a few times because I'm skinny and it fits me better but I always feel so self concious. I wonder if he's confident enough in himself or he just doesn't know...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:21 AM) : 

I agree and absolutely love the look on the first , and also the second picture. about the third Iñm not sure...there´s an italian flavour to her pattern and colour mixture which are are interesting. However the ensamble is not quite right for the season.


Blogger tali said ... (1:23 AM) : 

I love the shorts on the third one, they really work in the outfit.


Blogger sweetlifeinthevalley said ... (1:29 AM) : 

Love the look for the top lady. Stunning from the hair to the trench to the booties.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:33 AM) : 

Very cool.
It's interesting how you look at how the people are dressed. I tend to look more at them, and miss some details.
I like the first womans look and confidence. I also like the second woman's legs, wearing those high heels.


Blogger C.V said ... (1:42 AM) : 

Love 1st pic very much.
The lines and the emotion on her face.


Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (2:15 AM) : 

the first picture would be pretty great even if the beautiful lady disappeared

it is the looming buildings and they yellow lines


Blogger W said ... (3:07 AM) : 

great shots, the first is definitely my favorite! x


Blogger Tanya said ... (3:51 AM) : 

Oh wow, that first image, not only is it beautiful, but that is THE nicest trench coat I have ever seen IN MY LIFE....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:09 AM) : 

Love, love, love the first pic. Perfection!


Blogger Bee said ... (4:15 AM) : 

Maybe it's just the influence of hearing Berlin Wall stories all week, but your first photograph makes me think of everything that I associate with Berlin cool. I like the buttoned-up formality of this trench, plus the dark lipstick and "shingled" hair. It's such a beautiful image; and the background really sets it off.


Blogger Simo said ... (4:16 AM) : 

well,nobody talks about the 2nd lady

Vraiment cool et sexy

Have a good day guys


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:41 AM) : 

as much as like the trench coat and the woman's overall presentation, my favorite part of the first picture is its composition. her elongated frame melds so perfectly with with the linear brick facades, and the yellow medians stretching into infinity. the color pallette is something else altogether. i have to say that the evolution of your photography over the years has been exquisite, a true pleasure to behold. this photograph just screams j. alfred prufrock and the hidden beauty of urban wastelands. t.s eliot would be proud!


Blogger Mariana said ... (4:46 AM) : 

Love the two row button trench and the gorgeous boots!


Anonymous Tobias Sweden said ... (4:49 AM) : 

I like the last picture with the short-shorts and the bracelets. Very hot!

The first two are amazing. Love the Burberry Trench images. Awesome.

Mr. Daniel Lewis with repeat appearances on The Sartorialist. Good fellow, that one. We were neighbors in college.

I´m a big fan of your blog, but I really adore this Burberry's project: Art of the Trench... Same trench in sooooo many diferent ways and styles. sofisticated, classic, funny...Love it!!.Could be great if you start another with hats,bags or scarfs...

The top pic is just amazing!


Blogger The PrettyGreenBullet Store said ... (8:46 AM) : 

i love your glorification of a missing button. i have so many clothes with missing buttons, but alas no one to raise them to a venerable level like you do.


Blogger Lucas Jones said ... (9:46 AM) : 

that first one is seriously epic. chiaroscuro. the cheek bones. the hair.

Man, that first girl could be an Annie Clark (St. Vincent) doppleganger. Great looking coat!

Her complete look is amazing, but the setting with the brick and the double yellow lines slightly curving and running away...really, just a great great great photo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:19 AM) : 

scott--can you share with us details on how many of these shots were styled and how many you happened to informally capture in the street?



Blogger Eryl said ... (11:32 AM) : 

Utterly cheered by the woman with the shorts: she makes no apology for the year of her birth.


Blogger Ashley said ... (12:24 PM) : 

Splendid! That first trench encompasses all things distinguished.

Blogger Unknown said ... (1:58 PM) : 

ooooo, love the colors in the 2nd & 3rd photos, well done! and the road in the first is such a good compliment to the trench.


Blogger Ladybird said ... (2:28 PM) : 

Always a classy choice, though very different styled :)


Blogger kerfuffler said ... (2:29 PM) : 

So interesting!

Most everybody loves the top pic the most. It looks to me like a shot out of an artsy movie set during WW11. Perhaps everyone is responding to really well cut, well designed clothing. Such a great fit.

She's lovely too!


Blogger Rosalind said ... (2:56 PM) : 

I've been really enjoying looking at all the "Art of the Trench" pictures..
I think it's a really inspiring project idea, with a great outcome.
Its so interesting seeing how it is worn by different people and how it will then showcase part of their own unique style (while still wearing the same thing as many others!)


Blogger Alice D. Millionaire said ... (3:03 PM) : 

KILLER shoes in the last pic. also quite lovely that the trench is a bit shorter.


Blogger Thomas said ... (3:15 PM) : 

This is excellent marketing b/c I feel inclined to purchase a burberry trench.


Blogger The Khaki Crusader said ... (3:17 PM) : 

the lines the first lady creates are soo clean. perfect!


Anonymous Holly said ... (3:30 PM) : 

I love the shorter trench, especially the way she is wearing it...and also how Garance is wearing it on the Burberry Trenches site!


Anonymous Chuan said ... (3:57 PM) : 

The first lady looked like a death eater, albeit a deadly fashionable one.


Anonymous Ellie said ... (3:58 PM) : 

Gosh I WANT that 1st lady's trench. It's gorgeous! I love how 1 button at the bottom is undone...


Anonymous Natasha said ... (4:05 PM) : 

The second look is my favourite-of course the trench looks great, but the colour and pattern of the scarf plus that style of bag really make the whole outfit


Anonymous Sara Lua said ... (5:08 PM) : 

I love the 1st lady's Victorian boots, hair & cosmetics of the era.


Blogger robsawyer said ... (7:40 PM) : 

I've broken down the look of the gentleman pictured above on my blog. Take a look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 PM) : 

not many comments on the last look..but I like her look alot. Good use of various patterns and she almost looks something out of the 60's yet modern. i also enjoy that she's not wearing much makeup which shows her age.



Blogger Cynthia said ... (11:20 PM) : 

I love The Sartorialist! Your photos are stunningly perfect. I really, really want to be on location with all of them.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:04 AM) :

scott and Burberry are sheer genius

absolutely beautiful these variations of trench-coats.....I never had one, but I think that that has to change...

I have been long admiring your pictures. Could you let me know the camera and lens you use?

Blogger Tara said ... (4:21 PM) : 

The first one reminds me of Annie Clark (of St. Vincent)... it's probably the hair. I extra-love the composition in this one, too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:10 PM) : 

The first pic grabbed me. The best trench picture so far in my opinion. She's just doing something otherworldly here.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:37 PM) : 

What brand is the messenger bag the gentleman is holding in the second photo? It reminds of a hunting/outdoors clothing goods store that I can't seem to remember! Would love to know if you do! Email me at if anyone knows! Thanks!

Thanks for breaking it down Robsawyer 7:40PM but I'm buying squat.



Anonymous m.edwin said ... (12:46 AM) : 

the first two pics have a great, haunting quality, a tone on tone somberness and a smidgen of hitchcockian style. i really like the guy's color palette.


Anonymous Vinda said ... (9:42 AM) : 

the woman in pic #1 looks extremely sophisticated!! love the bag in pic #2!


Blogger Forest City Fashionista said ... (10:11 AM) : 

I've enjoyed "The Art of the Trench" series very much. I've never been a big fan of the trench coat, but your photos have demonstrated that it can be incredibly chic. The first photo is beautiful, and that is the most elegant trench I've ever seen. She has an air of mystery that makes you want to know her story


Blogger Eileen Marie said ... (4:09 PM) : 

I love the old european vintage look of the first photo and the lace up boots add a great touch to the ensemble. The fact that the last button is unbuttoned makes it more real as well. She has a unique beauty.

It's a very very interesting work !

her boots are amazing, and her white blouse peaking out on the top.with a coat like that you really can't go wrong-combined with the right shoes of course.second picture i love the colour of his coat...would have guessed he combined this look with a camel/beige trench so the grey comes as a surprise-which is good.and the scarf is just perfect!greetings from germany
