On the Street...Lino's Mad Plaid, Florence

When I started The Sartorialist it was to capture little images like this that would inspire the way I wanted to dress.

I know Lino is on the blog a lot but I think he really deserves it.

Meant for Movement, NYC

This is one of those looks that seems meant to be seen while moving.

She naturally walks with her arms tucked-in like that - I think it looks so graceful.

Since We Were Talking About Men in Skirts...

seems the idea of men in skirts is now acceptable but questions remain.
-cultural appropriation
-how the gentleman's legs look in the skirt
-what shoes to wear?
-(I can't believe I'm asking this but) above or below the knee?

Man Fashion: Rolex's Submariner

There are many luxury watch brands on the market today, take a look at the likes of Blancpain, F.P Journe and Franck Muller for some of the highest quality timepieces available.

One of the most famous names on the planet that most people recognize is Rolex. Many would question, however, that these would be the best watches to buy for your money.

But I am more interested to the Rolex's unique timepiece, Rolex Oyster Perpertual Submariner.

So what is your opinion on this design?

On the Street...Casual DB, Florence

I always think of DB's as the most formal of jackets - very buttoned-up.

here I love the idea of a casual cotton DB worn in a very easy way.

On the Street...The Impact of Mens Accessories, part 2

Personal Silhouette (part 2)

I think what we are seeing is that some people are very in-tuned with what type of shapes look good on them.

For guys this would translate into always or never wear double-breasted jackets, or peak lapels with a low gorge or something like that.

The Scent of Me

I still can't believe that this is the man that created the most popular cologne of my junior high years.

The name and actual person meant nothing to me at the time but all the kids at Stonybrook wanted to be wearing Lagerfeld.

We were not dressed very cool but we smelled great!

On the Street.....The Impact of Mens Accessories, NYC

The women's accessories business is huge because of the impact the right bag or sunglasses can have on a total look.

We don't often hear/notice that same impact in menswear.

Well, here is a great example of a few small accessories having a major impact on a look and totally changing the perception of that look.

By simply adding a silver cuff, highly stylized sandals and a dramatic hair style; this gentleman has taken a basically preppy look and turned it on it's head.

Of course the proportions of the polo and the rolled shorts also impact the look but the first thing i noticed were his accessories.
