Scott Schuman, the photographer behind The Sartorialist, has a keen eye for individual style. Nothing too trendy, just plain unique.
I was in a bookshop located along Elizabeth St. when I saw the book. It’s about street style photography and it was on sale. I flipped through the thick but small book and matt page after matt page, I was greeted with a blend of individual styles.
I went home, made myself comfortable and savoured each page. There’s just so much to look at; not because Schuman decided to squeeze ten photos into one page but every individual (from all walks of life) was wearing or had something eccentric with them.
I’m happy to have discovered Schuman’s blog, The Sartorialist, because from there one gets a glimpse of what personal style means and would close the tab feeling inspired to wear whatever you want, whenever you want. Nothing trendy, just plain you.
Here are a couple of my favorites.

Mine’s pretty good. I woke up to a cold and foggy morning and I find that exciting. It’s really rare to have Melbourne covered in a blanket of fog.
I met someone new at work today.
I had one too many slices of cake during our record week celebration.
I treated my body to some exercise, had a small dinner, a warm shower and now, this.
Yesterday, I had the urge to seek out street styles that portray the wearer’s individuality. I wanted to look at men’s fashion because the internet is saturated with metallic skirts, silk blouses, Chloe bags, block heels…
So here’s a representation of men who, in my opinion, dress to their soul’s satisfaction.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll notice that I mainly focus on women’s fashion. But my love for men’s fashion is growing. I look for styles that are unique but also aesthetically pleasing. An odd piece of clothing or accessory is fine, but I find myself gravitating towards smart casual, minimal styling, and well-structured clothing.
Here are some snapshots of stylish men roaming the streets of Europe. Enjoy!
