Color Me Sartorial

8 August 2009 at 7:43 am 1 comment

Once as I was scrolling through pictures from the Sartorialist, it occurred to me that I had no idea what a “sartorialist” was. Being the knowledge-hungry word nerd that I am, I opened a new tab in my browser and looked it up.


1. Of or relating to tailors or tailoring  (American Heritage Dictionary)

2.  Of or pertaining to clothing or style or manner of dress: sartorial splendor (

3. Anatomy.Pertaining to the Sartorius.  (

Of course, then I had to look up what a sartorius is, and for those of you who are curious how any of this is relevant it is a muscle in the leg that is you use when crossing your legs like a tailor, apparently.  Anyway, now that you know what the definition of sartorial is, hopefully those of you in the dark can read the Sartorialist minus the confusions.

The Sartorialist is a globe-trotting fashion blogger who photographs natural people in their own clothes as he passes them on the street. Read more about him and his work and see his inspiring subjects here.
