Too much going on the shirt does not go with the suit and the pocket square looks incongruos.

Wonderful & uncanny, in the good sense of the term.

Really really interesting... when fashion grows up all around the world... Cheers!


Blogger MJCK said ... (6:14 AM) : 

This is just absolutely amazing. What's that little yellow-orange thing on his blazer? It's like a very cool finishing touch anyway...!


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (6:34 AM) : 

Beautiful! But I think it's a tad underexposed so the details don't pop. But otherwise a wonderful shot to me.


Anonymous Jennifer - Stylish Clin d'Oeil said ... (6:41 AM) : 

great mixture of colors! love the yellow touch and the green tie!!


Blogger ADJ said ... (7:10 AM) : 

this is an awesomely handsome photo. i love the gold bracelet by the way. and the color coordination, the yellow paper peeping out of his pocket. the whole thing is great.

Very cool and sophisticated.

Minus the beard(ugh)- this is fantastic! Facial hair is not flattering on most men(It makes their face look wider).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:28 AM) : 

I remember him wearing some very nice combination in last summer's Pitti Uomo, right? He seems like a man who understands how to mix the classic and modern looks for a winning formula. I wish i dared a little more to try, maybe I'm too conservative with a suit on?


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (8:34 AM) : 

The yellow pocket square is beautiful. Love the contrast with his shirt.

this is a nice style!

awesome colors!


Blogger Stylistocrat by RNR said ... (9:07 AM) : 

and of course he's SATORIAL!!!! He's in a Ozwald Boateng folks! I know that cut and color anywhere... yellow ticket hidden ticket pocket and cuffs...


Blogger Dawn said ... (9:48 AM) : 

Sam, you are GLORIOUS!

Bravo, Sart!


Anonymous Olly Howley said ... (9:55 AM) : 

Sam can thank a British tailor for his jacket. The brightly coloured ticket pocket is typically Boateng, with the same cloth/fabric lining the cuffs. The slim lapels really add a sharpness to the cut, with the notch sitting on the shoulder line. Beautiful.


Blogger leyla said ... (10:08 AM) : 

Reminds me of Wyclef Jean a tad bit.

Too much effort, too many details

Very Chic !


Blogger Doremy Diatta said ... (10:54 AM) : 

i love the tiny peeks of bright yellow from his sleeve and pocket area. have we seen him before? anyways hes memorable

come by for a visit!


Anonymous Natasha said ... (11:03 AM) : 

fantastic look, love the yellow detail on the jacket


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (11:32 AM) : 

i really do like this. somehow he reminds me of a modern day william s. burroughs.

Blogger Ninjagaiden78 said ... (11:56 AM) : 

I like the look. The colors pop. He seems confident in what he has on.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:01 PM) : 

The man has style. I like men, who take care about style and attitude with a great suit and color accents in the pocket scarf or the glencheck shirt.Too often the younger generation do lack of old-school gentlemen style.


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

this pic is way too dark to see the colors and i'm really not feeling the color palette. maybe it's the tie that's throwing me. i can't tell if the shirt has green tones in it or not. i do however like the slim cut of the suit and the width of the lapels. overall though this is definitely not one of your best shots. what's going on over there the last few weeks have been so so. pitti usually gives u your best shots, stop holding back. tommy already has like 50 fantastic shots from pitti over @ gq. get your head back in the game. inspire me!


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

Very neat man! Love the suit. Fedoras are back--the real hats, not the stingy brims. Proper hats (no baseball caps please)lend an air of civility to a man's look.


Blogger Alexandra said ... (12:55 PM) : 

This is why I love men's fashion so can always see the care, deliberation, and thought that a man put into his outfit as the details, though subtle, are easier to pick out.

He has amazing style...I really love this photo too because it entirely captures his attitude and personality!


Blogger My So Called Life said ... (1:07 PM) : 

I love how he's so distiguinshed , with the hints of yellow and green here and there but the part that makes it for me is his hat and glasses, I think they just pull it all together.
You are really good!


Blogger La Boheme said ... (1:07 PM) : 

He looks sharp! Love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:10 PM) : 

I have to agree a little with Land's remark's. This didn't inspire me, the colour palette looks too dark for me too. I love the suit, and the details on it. But a pocket hanky plus bracelet plus tie pin plus green tie plus lapel pin and then the detail at the pocket of the suit and the watch band. Too much. I do, however, like the facial hair and the glasses, a little sixties.


Blogger said ... (1:11 PM) : 

this is STYLE to a tee!who would have thought to dress a plaid shirt under a suit. just fabulous.also, love the gold/yellow trimmings and details!

One ought to view this gentleman as one would a painting. I adore this look, but I love his eyes most of all. Happy weekend!;-)

I like how just a tiny bit of yellow add some spark, very nice.

I like how he paired the plaid button up with the blazer...The green tie is a nice touch

Blogger jonzak said ... (6:03 PM) : 

Wow. Very impactful image and photo. Stands out so strongly as one of your best in a while. A testament to the man in the clothes, his taste, the fit, the assemble, and of course your photography. Total win.

Absolutely one of the greatest looks I've seen. Such character! I'm going to find a hat like that now!

A little colour, a little jewelery, a little slender, a little beard. Superb.

Blogger green lantern said ... (10:45 PM) : 

Sart...Thank you for what you see. I see it too. I see a look that is ambiguous in a good way. The plaid and color, and big bracelet, take a "Mad Men" suit and skew it just a tad. Yeah, I see it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:14 PM) : 

Amazing look. Just amazing.


Blogger lenmeister said ... (12:50 AM) : 

Plus ultra dapper! Good eye Sart. What's to like the most i believe is how his ensemble must reflect his personality. " Style is a simple way of saying complicated things" right as per Cocteau. (But ONE shot a day, really Sart? This is Pitti Uomo after all :-/ don't hold back on us now)

this man is stunning- might as well say from head to toes, but where are his shoes? Would be cool if he walked the streets barefooted, but Italy is not exactly the epitome when it comes to clean environments..hehe

A great look, good mix of colours and everything works together really well.

Especially like the pocket square and the pin at the top of the left lapel.

The neon orange details on the jacket make this look as modern as hell. The whole thing is superb.

Blogger Regiane said ... (11:30 AM) : 

Here I am one more time to say that the Sartorialist's shots are not only abt fashion and style but about being classic because of the attitude of the people who appears here daily... Just look at this guy's posture and expression: absolutely "chic", and he cud look this way no matter what he's wearing! One more fantastic "fashion with atittude" picture!

I love the details, like pocket square etc!!


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

For a second, I thought that orange peeking out of his pocket was an actual 'lip pocket' done in contrasting orange color. That can actually become a men's wear pocket detail idea. Just the lip part of that lip pocket can be a contrasting color...

If this is the Sam I think it is, he's a rather gifted taylor himself. He had a shop in Stockholm where he sold his on stuff. However, I'm not sure if it is still up and running.
What can you say? His sense of style is impeckable.
