Okay, so what is the difference between a "Sartorialist" and a "non-Sartorialist" when it comes to looks?

Who is higher up on the food chain - a Sartorialist or an iGent?

I have personally thought of a Sartorialist as a caterpillar that blossoms into a butterfly of an iGent when it joins SF (and a moth when a Sartorialist veers towards FNB instead). Thoughts?

If you're talking about that Sartorialist looks thread and non-Sartorialist looks thread, I believe Sartorialist looks means something that was posted on thesartorialist.blogspot.com whereas non-Sartorialist looks refers to anything that was posted anywhere else.

LOL at that being your "dictionary".... Oxfordialists everywhere cringe and cry.

I don't think I would trust a dictionary that they actually block me from at work.

'Satorialist' isn't in the OED. Actually, it's not in any dictionary, because it's not a word, which makes the original question perfectly reasonable. Before Scott Schuman took it as the name for his blog, the word had been independently coined a couple of times as a humorous term for surgeons (relating to its Latin root sarcire, meaning 'to patch'). It can be found in a 1908 edition of Punch and the 1931 work A Bachelor's London.
