Scott Schuman is The Sartorialist. Not a serial killer, although wouldn't that be an excellent serial killer? No, The Sartorialist is a blogger - and before you roll your eyes, dude, Scott Shuman is a blogger who doesn't write very much, and who takes extremely fine pictures.

He takes pictures of people who know how to dress themselves. Aging Italian playboys. Tiny, youthful French fashion editors. Artists, housepainters, Carolina Herrera, Kanye West. He has a weakness for beautifully tailored suits, women in oversized coats, skinny jeans, and Carine Roitfeld. There are lots of women in tights, and he has a Northern Italian's appreciation for color, by which I mean, in this book, if it's not black, it's probably navy blue.

I envy his access, his equipment, his frequent flyer miles, and his extremely discerning eye. And the ultimate take-home message from this book: if you know how to wear a scarf, that's half the battle.
