The problem with this look is that although it looks great in a photo, in a practical wearable sense it doesnt work at all. The second he bends over even slightly his extra small sweater will ride up and look like shit. From the looks of the way his jacket fits, I really dont think he can actually button it up so hes stuck with it flapping around all day. He basically has to walk around as stiff as possible so as not to ruffle his perfectly positioned outfit.
His sweater does not look too small, and I imagine he can button his jacket. It does not appear particularly small on him. I think his clothes lok quite well fitting other than the roll below his jacket collar, which may go away when the jacket is buttoned.
this comment baffled me. did we use to see it so much? when? do we really need to see it more?
I wondered about that. It's always been used by people who need to keep their tie out of the way of something messy, but not as a stylistic thing. I'm sure if the Sart went to any major hospital, he'd see it to his heart's content. (And imagine how those scrubs would pop when oversaturated.)
I really respect Scott's skill and perseverance as a photographer. It's great that he's gotten so much recognition for what (I guess) started out as a side pet project. The book is really impressive too.
That said, hearing him talk and interact with people, I really respect his ability to self-edit his own words... definitely a good role model to have if you're writing a fashion blog, not writing actual copy for a website selling clothing. (although those cats could also benefit from following the Sartorialist's example. Less words richer visuals....
