All those guys had shirt sleeves too long, too many buttons unbuttoned, ensembles that were optical illusions or were wayyyyyyyy tooo flashy. Most of those outfits are all fucked-up and unsartorial.

The only one worth mentioning was the black man in the country suit. Very well-done IMO.

I agree with Plotter's evaluation, for the most part... but that Bill Cunningham's enthusiasm and charm are spectacular. Wish I could podcast this, or at least subscribe to a Youtube feed, instead of having to try and catch it when it's on the times site.

couldn't have said it better myself.

As a younger guy, I also liked the guy with the extreme taper and slim shoes, but the fat tie completely killed it.

Bill Cunningham is awesome! The narration was so full of enthusiasm and I thought the photos he picked were great to look at even if you don't agree with the style. I was reading an article about him recently, I think it was NY Times or NY Mag, and it talked about how "pure" he was about clothes. He never gets wrapped up in the trappings of the brands or the wealth or the pretension but instead lives like an acetic, simply loving his work and working his hardest. He really loves clothes!

It's interesting to try and draw relationships between him and Scott Schuman (the Sartorialist) as well. I think despite having similar methods and stalking grounds, they have pretty distinct styles and results.
