Casual and formal wear are still closer than you think
I adore the A/W photo shoot for Drake’s, shown here. Such vivid colour combinations.
It reminds me of a post I wrote almost four years ago now about my favourite early photos on The Sartorialist, called ‘Casual and formal wear are closer than you think‘.
There are some things I would change about the post now (like the man with the green scarf) but the point remains about inspiration drawn from both casual and formal wear. Sometimes fans of sartorial clothing can get stuck in minutiae and historical references. It does us good to spread our gaze a little wider.
Below, my favourite ever Sartorialist photo, for just that reason.
