The Sartorialist may be the most influential style blog on the web, and hence, a major force in the fashion world. Since 2005, founder Scott Schuman has captivated fashion enthusiasts of all kinds across the globe. And today more than ever, his fashion finds are inspiring both high-end and mainstream styles. Just look at Gucci’s fall 2011 collection, and right here on State Street where I found this Fashionisto looking much like a model straight off the blog with his smart and sophisticated look, undeniably similar to this Sartorialist snapshot. Although fashion is always evolving, Schuman dedicated The Sartorialist to timeless, tailored, and tasteful trendsetters. His blog is synonymous with blazers and tailored coats – there is an abundance of men and women wearing them. He has a way of finding chic combinations of colors, textures and patterns as well. The featured Fashionisto upholds these concepts. He wears a navy doubled breasted peacoat over a red pinstriped shirt and wraps a white and black buffalo plaid scarf around his neck. He accentuates a contrast with his untucked shirt and loose fitting coat with slim jeans neatly tucked into western Chelsea boots, evocative of the Beatles’ era. Lastly, leather biker gloves foster his sharpness.
Hint: A tailored jacket is a classic piece worth investing in – for boys and girls alike. Spend the time and money to find your perfect fit that matches your body type and personal style. And remember that tailored coats and blazers are good items to find when “thrifting”. There is no sign of this trend easing up so its an affordable way to stock up and add individuality to your wardrobe.
