    The Sartorialist is in my town (Dallas, TX) today for his book signing. Ironically, I’m in his (New York, NY). I was disappointed I wouldn’t be meeting Scott Schuman personally; however, my good friend Sara, who authors Pair Diem, amicably agreed to take my book along with hers to the signing. Thank you!

    As a self-taught photographer, Scott has turned his expertise at The Sartorialist into a respected photography career. I picked up the beautifully produced, luxury limited-edition hardback aptly titled The Sartorialist. The size of the book was curious, lacking the sweeping visual impact most books featuring photography establish; however, Scott explains his influence in creating a lack of preciousness. These are some of my favorites.

    “I hope that, as you look at the images in this book, rather than giving a look a ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’, you will focus on the elements that could inspire you...it’s all about self expression. I rarely shoot a look where I love all the elements.”

    I love all these shots that really capture the individual, but how cool is that last guy. So great!

    Pretty funny that most of the photos you picked are in my inspiration file already…

    Memphis88—I haven’t read many interviews with Scott other than his own book.  At the moment, I haven’t completely decided whether or not I will leave negative comments up.  I am leaning towards not moderating whatsoever in order to keep the conversations open and honest.

    Richard—I would have liked to have met you too along with Scott.  Shooting some fun stuff up in NYC at the moment for the blog.  I’ll share later!

    The pics that you chose to post are some of my all time favorites.  Most of them I printed out the first time I saw them.  Thanks for the highlights.

    I have most of those pictures saved in a folder on my desktop that I keep sartorially inspiring pictures in. I wish all of his pictures were like this stuff. I’ve lost a lot of respect for the guy after reading interviews with him and when I discovered that he deletes any and all negative comments from his blog.
