Love these photos, it looks like it was such an amazing and fun event! And, of course, the style featured in all these shots is amazing.


Blogger Tony Post No Bills | Washington DC said ... (4:30 PM) : 

I love the second photo. That is a perfect example of how gentleman should wear their trousers/pants. Just on the belly button. Also unique seeing the suspender buttons on the outside as opposed to the inside.


Blogger agnes szucs said ... (4:33 PM) : 

So nice, this series!
It really transports me into another age.
And very great photos, too. My faves are number two and three.

Ouigi of BKC!! I always love his style.


Blogger -E- said ... (5:06 PM) : 

Aw man, I love it! I can almost hear the music in the background. And the hair on the first guy, really hot, and I'm glad that hair-style is starting to catch on, it's super cool!


Anonymous Michele said ... (5:22 PM) :

Blogger willi float said ... (9:30 PM) : 

scott, these posts from the jazz parties are always great. what are these parties exactly? who goes? looks like total fun.

ps. the third photo is a total replica of how my design professor dresses every day, minus suspenders :) makes for a great atmosphere around the studio as you can imagine



Blogger fashion twits said ... (10:01 PM) : 

This is so chic! I love the mans blazer in the first picture. Keep up the good work!


Blogger Tango K said ... (10:20 PM) : 

Every year, these are some of my favorite! This looks like a party I want to go to, where's my flapper dress?


Anonymous john b said ... (10:25 PM) : 

These pictures surely make me wish I was born in a previous age. The guy in the last picture (bartender from a previous post) makes style look easy...


Anonymous robin said ... (11:20 PM) : 

What beautiful pictures! I feel like I am right there dancing!


Blogger Kyle said ... (11:45 PM) : 

I love the Jazz Age Styling, to me it evokes the same 'cool' that the music of the era had.

I love the emotion in the first two!

I love all the browns in the last photo; it's practically sepia-toned, apart from that blue and purple splash. The color scheme really echoes the vintage-ness.

bravo bravo


Blogger ana said ... (1:48 AM) : 

oooo how beauty :) love them !! ;D


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:01 AM) : 

Fantastic, esp the first man and guy in sailor t-shirt!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:02 AM) : 

Thanks for these pics--seeing all sorts of people having fun working their styles and dancing together made me smile!


Blogger Zaczynam Odchudzanie said ... (4:07 AM) : 

Many times I was taking photos jazz musician, but I've never photograhed people dancing jazz. It's a great idea to see that jazz culture is still alive. As Louis Amostrong said:“If you have to ask what jazz is, you'll never know.”


Blogger Kaila said ... (4:28 AM) : 

Absolutely LOVE these pictures!!!

SO adorable and classy looking! Wish i was there!!


Blogger BasicbutChic said ... (4:36 AM) : 

It's funny to discover the "Gavroche's french style" with the photo number 3 (and always the magical black and white shoes)


Blogger supercalifragilisticexpialidocious said ... (4:51 AM) : 

oh my gosh love the ring on the man in the second photo !!! such interesting colors !


Blogger Stylison said ... (5:10 AM) :

Anonymous magdeline said ... (5:12 AM) : 

In the second picture, I love his ring.

Me encanta el chico de la Tatoos en los brazos!! Un Diez con su estilismo


Blogger Liv said ... (6:20 AM) : 

How fun, the second pic is beautiful!


Blogger Gretta said ... (6:28 AM) : 

OH these just make me SWOON! The effort that goes into the ensembles is fantastic. I'm now nostalgic for a time when I wasn't even close to being born.

love the guy squatting with the tattoos. there's a true scum of the earth vibe going on here.


Blogger Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said ... (1:43 PM) : 

God, this looks like a greta place to meet a whole lot of stylish and ineteresting people!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:49 PM) : 

Trumpet guy is pretty stunning. Looks like Jude Law a bit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:03 PM) : 

Amazing stuff, Scott & the lawn party does it again. The guy in pic #2 is flawless, he is always interestingly dressed. He's part of The Brooklyn Circus boutique. Their blog is very inspirational,

The guy with the tatoos is effortless, very cool.


Anonymous Megan said ... (2:07 PM) : 

I love these shots a bit more than pt 1. They are showing movement and color both which compliments the jazz look exceedingly more so than the black and white photos which appear more still.


Blogger Old Magic Moon said ... (2:57 PM) : 

You were there last year, weren't you? It seems to be a good place to dance! I love this jazzy spirit, it is so inspiring.


Blogger clothREvisited said ... (3:01 PM) : 

OMG--I am just losing myself in these photos of the Governors Island Dance Party. Splendid!


Blogger Simone said ... (3:13 PM) : 

again, beautiful pictures!


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:19 PM) : 

I would really like one of those jackets myself... and a couple of the adorable straw hats... oh and an invitation to the Governers Island Dance PLEASE! X


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

I like those boater hats and the spectator shoes. The guy with the tattoos is perfect.


Blogger A.E said ... (4:51 PM) : 

You've just dosed me with a load of nostalgia, even though I wasn't even alive when these looks where n their heyday. As always, you've captured these people and the atmosphere in a truly beautiful way. Thank you, as always. :)


Anonymous Sara Lua said ... (5:05 PM) : 

I've seen the first photo musician play & sing with his band in NYC, and love them. He's the real deal :)


Blogger Álvaro said ... (5:55 PM) : 

it´s really beautiful, it´s like a movie about these years



Blogger Liz S said ... (6:13 PM) : 

OMG! WOW! I just don't know what to say--I am in love with these people and their looks. Your photos of them just shine. As a collector, seller and lover of vintage clothing this is total perfection of this era. Where do I start with what I love? I shall try and keep it simple...hah!
Love the first guy's hair,jacket and expression. The 2nd guy's braces are trousers are incredible--not to mention his arm and ring. The 3rd photo is just allover amazing--I want to meet this person. The moustache and tie on the last fellow is beeeutiful!

I also don't necessarily see these clothes as being unwearable for our lives now--they are stylish, chic and interesting--they flatter the person who knows how to wear them--so nostalgic while they are, they shouldn't only be.


Blogger Gina Schiappacasse said ... (1:44 AM) : 

Voon looks fantastic (in the b+w). Thanks for capturing his stylish and energetic spirit so beautifully!



Blogger kathrynnova said ... (4:32 AM) : 

i'm in heaven looking at these photos.

i wish i could transport myself to live in them

Fantastic photos! They convey the spirit of the party.

You always seem to capture the greatest moments. How do you spot them? And I love the polka-dotted bow tie in the first image.


Blogger Zuzolińska said ... (4:40 PM) : 

they all look like from another age and this is awsome!


Blogger tiffany. said ... (6:23 PM) : 

awesome over load!!! *brain explosion*



Anonymous April said ... (8:22 PM) : 

I love the fashion in these photos! They look very costumy... were the portraying other characters?


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:32 PM) : 

This series is always a highlight. What fun, and the top two photos (the man with the trumpet and the man with the fab beard/hat/biceps..!) are just killer.


Blogger orange:) said ... (3:40 AM) : 

The man in the first picture looks like Clark Gable from Gone with the Wind!

The Jazzy feel to these photographs is amazing


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:32 AM) :

Every year you post these pics I think "Dang! I gotta go to that event" and here it is, another year wasted! Love all the photos, all the clothes, and of course this blog!


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:22 PM) : 

The hats! The braces! The shoes! THE TROUSERS.

Seriously, the trousers are amazing.

Pic#2 took my breath away !


Anonymous G said ... (1:24 AM) : 

The gentleman at the very top of this post(white long sleeve, orange bow tie, high waist chocolate trousers and awesome facial hair) is from a company called Brooklyn Circus. Great brand, the have one here in San Francisco on Fillmore St. Wee-Gee is his name, if I remember correctly. :)

Everything from the employees to the layout of the shop is very cohesive.

Scott, great blog! You've actually inspired me to create a high end fashion blog for the City of San Francisco. Check it out when you have a chance :


Blogger Jenny said ... (8:32 PM) : 

Amazing. Again! Do you go to this every year I remember loving a similar set of photos last year too. Favorites - the man with the plaid blazer and the one with the straw hat. Perfect summer outfits
