Meeting The Sartorialist At His Book Signing In Sydney 2009

Here you have it: The Male Umbrella meets The Sartorialist!

What an experience! Had a awesome chat with Scott, mainly about my cravat and his pocket square, which is exactly how it should have been!

The book signing was from 6-9, I arrived a little before 6 and watched the lines grow and grow all the way down the block in Paddington. On the way out the sky was dark as there was a storm brewing, the final shot below is a sneaky shot I took from my car driving off with my freshly signed book and the memory of meeting Scott Schuman!

The Male Umbrella Likes To Play @ Ivy Pool Club (Sydney)

The Colour Red- rich, can represent lust or passion, but when it comes to clothes, perhaps it's just a way of using colour to brighten up an outfit.

SABA Check Suit Jacket- A little bit dandy, a little bit english prep, oh fuck it! don't over think it and just throw it all together!

Paul Smith Black Tie- With the mindset of "everyone will be wearing black skinny ties", I decided for the more appropriate and much more bolder choice, manipulating the difference in colours and patterns.

Topman Grey Trousers- Cuts a great shape and compliments the jacket

The Winery

Without having to result to Amazon, I am to pleased to say Australia has finally recieved Scott Schuman's book! With inspiration never far away in paperback form- I thought for this post I'd include a few photos from October's long weekend- the photo below is actually supposed to complement my previous post; "Knot The Man I Though You Were". Cheers to my mate for the photos!
