I wish American men could dress like he. I spotted a man wearing rolled-up red twill pants with summer oxfords in San Francisco. He was too good to be true -- definitely Italian.

I love the scarf, but I don't know about the socks. Maybe a darker color like a purple or red.

I also love the slim cut of his pants, and the polkadot scarf... How often do I see men wearing polkadots? I love it. And I love the toggled coat, too.

Love it. I need to go to Italy.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:49 PM) : 

I've been looking to the oldest posts of The Sartorialist, the ones from 2005 and 2006. No doubt, today's shots are far more beautiful and well-found.

However, there's something that, in my opinion, isn't as good as it used to anymore. Years ago your photographs came usually with a text explaining the sense of the picture, the images and feelings they evoked to you: explaining what made a look more than simple good taste about fashion.

That made the comments of every shot (not many of them, just about 10 or so for each one) turn in some cases into interesting dialogs about the conceptual side of fashion.

Don't you miss that, now that most of the hundreds of comments you get every week just say how much they love a certain detail of the clothing or how pictorical the photograph is?

Well, all I want to say is that, from my point of view, a blog that has got fame under the philosophy of catching that "something" in some people's way of wearing, beside "official" fashion and style rules, should make use of the support of the words, the only way to tell the world what you really mean with a picture.

Love your work anyway, and I'm sure you have something to tell, I just would love to see it writen.

Yes ! I am looking forward to throwing my colored socks on. With the snow and ice back on the east coast, I am sticking to my weathered chukkas. I have ruined to many leather shoes with the salt thrown down.

A refreshing boost with winter still blowing around.

Well done !
