The Sartorialist

I was noodling around the 'Net looking for content in french and came across this Blogspot blog about Men's Fashion... The Sartorialist. It's a blog filled with photos and commentary on men's, and sometimes women's, fashion on the streets and runways of Paris, Milan and New Yawk. (Why no 'Frisco?!) The blogger is a very handsome photojournalist and sometimes model-- Scott Schuman. It's a great, inspiring blog that makes me want to fly to Milano immediately., and sip a cappuccino at an outdoor cafe while wearing a bespoke suit...

I'm surrounded now by men's fashion 30 hours a week. However, I am in the low-end of the pool of high-end men's fashion. We sell some blazers and suits that are in the $900-$1400 price range (!--pour Moi), but most of our customers wait until they go on sale. And we also have many shoppers scouring the clearance racks for $9.99 bargains (and still asking for more of a discount, oy oy oy!).

At the very least, I now know about proper sleeve length, the difference between a structured and unstructured jacket, and other (useful???) information. This, added to my extensive knowledge of the latest happenings inside the Big Brother House, make me the well-rounded person that you have all come to know and love!

Dearest Albg --

I don't know if you already know about this site, or if it's of any value to you and your work getting out there, or learning more about your craft, but when I saw it I thought to pass it along....

Now to go back and read your post. I have been adding about a post a day to my Adventures in Nature blog. There are just so many things going on in that area of my life, and it certainly makes for more entertaining material...

well luv, what did you think of last week's project runway projects on the runway, lol? Have you seen the tape yet?

PS: I've been blogging daily -- a challenge I gave myself at the start of July. SInce I have three blogs, I put something on one of them daily. I am having so much fun with the one called adventures in nature ... not sure you've seen that one....
