'Everybody loves being photographed by Scott Schuman. If he spots you in the crowd, whether in New York or Paris or Milan, it's a kind of validation. And everybody likes to see who he has photographed for The Sartorialist, because it's proof of his critical eye.'

Format: Paperback
The Sartorialist brings together the fashion and photography of Scott Schuman in a book as handsome and elegant as the old Milanese men he so admires. What I love about Schuman's photography is the personality. Undoubtedly, everybody in this book looks great, but no one looks the same. In his photographs he captures not just the beautifully tailored suits, the just-so chinos and the dresses (summer, cocktail and otherwise), but also the greying hair, the coy smile or the nonchalant stare, all the idiosyncrasies that make his subjects so appealing to look at. And look you do - as just like his sartorially exquisite subjects - you can't take you eyes off this book.

Well worth the money, the pictures are printed sharp and the colours are fantastic.

Look out for the gent in the screaming purple suit WOW!. Or the oldish Milanese lady with a coat that matches her hair (in colour & texture) and her skin tones (colour). Bellisimo.

This book will eventually make it into Parr & Badgers The Photo Book VOL 3, there is no higher recommendation.
Why?
As it is a perfect representation of all Human Beings need to express themselves, their personalities their lives etc via their clothing.

Please do buy this before it goes OOP(Out of Print).

To the author well done a life times work recognised.

It's brilliant. If you like the photos on the blog, this is a great chance to get to pore over them in close up. I guess more commentary might be good but there's a lot of thought provoking shots in here. Lovely.

I had no idea who the Sartorialist was before I bought this book, however I read about it on the Topshop website and thought I would investigate further.
Instead of a collection of high fashion photos, the Sartorialist explores classic street style which is both inspirational and aspirational. The clothes speak for themselves (although a little more text would have been nice) and should encourage everyone with an interest in fashion to seek their own style and express themselves through clothes, whether high fashion or budget.

Really genius little book of image fashion from the streets - although suspect the prices for 'these little numbers' is eyewatering plus it helps to be in a cosmopolitan backdrop to get away with some, it's still fun and suggests you might up the style with a little imagination. I paid 20 in Waterstones for this... shish!

This is a very attractive book with lots of great images but far too many of the people featured are 'fashion industry' people - designers, editors of fashion magazines etc. (including Julie, the cover girl) so not exactly what I would call 'street'. This just compounds the notion that you have to have money and access to designer labels to have style, which isn't at all true. So I hope that if there is a 'Sartorialist Part 2' there will be more genuinely street fashion shots of ordinary people with more realistic budgets - who still have great style!

first of all, if your a photographer looking for influence without much of a focus on fashion, (even though i love fashion)
then theres no real point buying the book, its too small and theres hardly any writing in it, and no real order in the photos
feels like he's just slapped this together in a day and wrote a few paragraphs.

If your a big fan than buy it, otherwise just look through the blog.

For anyone , of any age, Style ought to be of importance, and how you dress is a vital part of being stylish.
It's a fact of life, many people have great ideas about how they want to look, appear to others, but lack the courage initially, to execute the idea.
The Sartorialist, a fabulously illustrated and detailed book, full of exciting photographs of exquisitely clothed men, women, boys and girls, which originally started life as a blog, by a very talented Fashion Photographer in New York, shows what can be achieved.
Lavishly illustrated,the people involved show how beautiful style doesn't always have to be extravagant nor that being well dressed has to be expensive.
This beautifully compact book will excite those that want to dress to feel good, to impress and those that just want to admire the way clothes and accessories can maketh the man ....and woman !
