    Look for sartorial:
    sartorial |särˈtôrēəl|
    adjective [ attrib. ]
    of or relating to tailoring, clothes, or style of dress : sartorial elegance.
    DERIVATIVES
    sartorially adverb
    ORIGIN early 19th cent.: from Latin sartor ‘tailor’ (from sarcire ‘to patch’ ) + -ial .

    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.

    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.

    Since you capitalized the term and put it in quotes, it's this guy:

    How small is he?

    It doesn't help to have his picture taken with models wearing high heels..
