Fall Looks: Setting the Bar


[Pictured: "On the Street....Perfect RL, NYC". Courtsey of Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist.]

The best look I have seen this fall comes from a street shot done by the great Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist (who partly inspired this very blog's name). This gentleman is doing exactly what I am recommending this fall (see: two posts ago)...blending both the traditionally refined and the classically rugged. Here we've got wingtips, a spread collar button down, a tweed vest, chinos, and a tie complete with tie bar topped off with a great military fatigue jacket.  What a great example of a wonderful, yet average fall outfit taken to the next level with the inclusion of an unexpected element. This outfit says so many things, but all I can say is "wow". This, ladies and gentlemen, is a perfect outfit, and THE perfect fall look as far as Sartorially Inclined is concerned. Finding the right balance somewhere in-between is no easy task, but when done right the juxtaposition of refined and rugged brings it all together. Talk about setting the bar high...

  2. One Man's Style,

    The cuffed khakis are awesome and are part of my early fall look as we speak (they look great with my Bass Weejuns sans socks)...the spread collar is interesting as well...I failed to mention it in my post, but it contines along with the refined aspects of the whole outfit.

  3. I don't know how I ever missed this post- this has always been one of my favourite sartorialist shots and style shots period.
