About the Author

Scott Schuman started The Sartorialist simply to share photos of people that he saw on the streets of New York that he thought looked great. Having worked in fashion industry for fifteen years, he felt there was a disconnect between what he was selling in the showroom and what he was seeing real people (really cool people) wearing in real life. The Sartorialist was his attempt to redress the balance. He began shooting people on the street in a way that he knew most designers hunted for inspiration. Since its beginning the blog has become hugely respected and influential in the fashion industry and beyond, and currently receives over 100,000 hits a day. Scott Schuman now has a monthly page in GQ, shoots regularly for many top fashion magazines around the world, covers all the fashion shows for Style.com, has had his photographs appear in the windows of Saks Fifth Avenue, appeared in a GAP ad himself, and has been picked by Time magazine as one of their top 100 design influencers.

The Sartorialist is a must have book for anyone that gets a kick out of getting an outfit together, and actually a must have for those that don't... pure attainable inspiration on every page. S.S. is amazing!

People-Watching Without Going Outside... Aug. 3 2010
By porkchop - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
On-the-street fashions are the best. I picked this book up specifically because I was looking for a book of street fashions. I enjoyed this one. It has a lot of beautiful looks in it, but it doesn't have the FORCE of Fruits or Vice Dos and Don'ts: 10 Years of VICE Magazine's Street Fashion Critiques. Like I said, there's some inspiration in here, and some originality, but mostly it's photographs of thin rich people wearing expensive clothes.

I mean, it's nice to see rich people who aren't boring...

Wonderful but recycled Aug. 15 2009
By Vivien Li - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's hard to justify buying this book. Although beautifully photographed with characteristically interesting subjects, these images have already been shown on The Sartorialist blog and Schuman's GQ page. I imagined more of a big, glossy volume and at least a little bit of new photography (instead of new photos, though, there is some caption-style writing). But as it turns out, the book's size is really fantastic, as is the use of thick matte paper. It's also very well priced, so generally speaking my disappointment comes from the expectation of new material.

Schuman is a talented photographer and may be the pioneer of street-style blogs, but he isn't as talented as some of his peers. For example, the French photographer Garance Dore is much more skilled in photography, which may be related to her artistic background as an illustrator. She has a more developed eye for representing beautiful things (rather than just recognizing them), so even though her subjects are more or less the same as Schuman's her photos are much more satisfying to look at.

Great content. Dec 28 2009
By Tami Melendez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was suprised at the size of this book. It's on the smaller size but very thick and inside I found so many great fashion photographs. It really made me want to dress up and travel the world! I especially loved the photos shot in Paris--so stylish! Overall, this is a great purchase and I am so glad to add it to my collection.

Sartorialist is Picture Perfect Dec 26 2009
By Rosebud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ok. Let me confess. I'm a huuuge fan of the blog. This book is a presentation of the best pictures culled from Scot Schuman's blog, The Sartorialist. It is a visual and stylish delight. Absolutely wonderful to flip through. The photographs are stunning studies of individual style and quite a colorful inspiration. See all those boots and carmel brown shoes in the photos? Now look around, and you'll see them everywhere in everytown. I think Scot S made a strong impact on fashion, by stylishly chronicling it.

Great gift for a fashionista Dec 10 2009
By BookishNYC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a great adjunct to the author's famous website. I have dog-eared so many pages (many more than I have in recent editions of Vogue or Harpers Bazaar) that showcase terrific, real-life STYLE. This book would make a great stocking stuffer for your fashionista friends, or even a nice hostess gift for style-conscious holiday party givers.
