"Mark your calendars . . . "

Scott Schuman - "The Sartorialist"

Good morning,

For those of you in the San Francisco area, we have a special treat headed our way next week. Photographer Scott Schuman - "The Sartorialist" himself - will be in SF as a part of his national book tour.
You can meet Scott and get a signed copy of his new book, "The Sartorialist," next Wednesday evening, October 21st, at the Paul Smith shop at #50 Geary Street from 7:30 to 8:30.

"The Sartorialist" was one of the first blogs that I was ever aware of. It began several years ago with Scott snapping picture of the well (and sometimes just interestingly) dressed population of New York. I always loved that he was very specific about his task - it was never a question of "I don't like those shoes," or "I never look good in that colour," but he wanted his readers just to find inspiration from the pictures - from the couture creations of fashion week, to the simple work clothes of local artisans, or anyone with a chic sense of style. And the photography is breathtaking. Scott is able to capture a magical, ephemeral moment with each subject. You can see the details of the clothing - but, you're aware of SO much more.

Hopefully I'll see a few of you there,

Scott - You may have seen this but you got a great mention in one of Canadian House & Home's blogs via an interview you did with Ivan Meade-

He'll be here in Dallas this tuesday and I'm hoping to attend...

P.S. I thought of you when I looked thru the new Country Living magazine where there is a little Mad For Plaid section. I'm ordering the tartan dessert plates from Pendleton....and that tartan candle too. You may want to check it out...
