A gorgeous collection of photographsfrom the creator of the original street style blog.

His now-famous and much-loved blog,, is his showcase for the wonderful and varied sartorial tastes of real people across the globe. This book is a beautiful anthology of Scott's favorite images, accompanied by his insightful commentary. It includes photographs of well-known fashion figures alongside people encountered on the street whose personal style and taste demand a closer look.
From the streets of New York to the parks of Florence, from Stockholm to Paris, from London to Moscow and Milan, these are the men and women who have inspired Scott and the many diverse and fashionable readers of his blog.

The Sartorialist was his attempt to redress the balance. Since its beginning, the blog has become hugely admired and influential in the fashion industry and beyond. is consistently named one of the top blogs in the world.

Scott doesn t just take pictures, he captures emotion. He is not just a photographer. He s a historian marking the feeling of this generation one photo at a time. Kanye West Praise forThe Sartorialist: Closer
