A Sartorial Aside


One of my favorite blogs is Scott Schuman’s thesartorialist.com which  features  the unique and varied sartorial tastes of real people around the world.   While I make no claim to rising to his level of candidness, I did my best to indulge in “people watching by camera” as we traveled through various cities.


One of the first things I noticed was beautiful eyewear.


Of course that could be taken to extremes too as with our Ship’s Program Director’s elephant shaped glasses

Apologies to Rene for this awful photo, just had to get those glasses
Okay, stop it, you know that’s not what I mean by classy eyewear

I think the fringe in fashion just makes voyeurism more entertaining.

As expected I found an ethnic element to Europe’s street  style.


While it is the saucy young things that seem to capture most of my attention,

I confess a certain fondness for the more classic looks,


And am simply amazed at those who tackle cobblestones in sky high shoes

    Peg – I had to look that up – both the meaning of the word and the photographer. You’re every bit as good. — Lynne

    One earlier picture of Rene had him towering over his staff, he’s obviously a large guy, how tall was he? The elephant glasses are hilarious. Couple of the pictures looked like they were dress dummies (mannequins), but they looked very realistic in detail, and I couldn’t make up my mind if they were people or plastic (plastic people?). Their eyes looked artificial. Strange. Talk about a variety of styles. We consider the U.S.A. a melting pot, but we’ve got a lot of catching up to do from the looks of the pictures.
