The professional fashion business is so publicist and celebrity infested that it's almost impossible to enjoy the clothes-- we avoided the tents at Fashion Week like they were infested with avian flu. That's what makes the Sartorialist blog so refreshing-- it's just pictures of stylish people on the street, with the occasional comment: "I could be wrong but this really looks like a French take on American classics. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, notice this is another young guy wearing a tie bar. I smell a trend." The site is sort of a more populist version of the Look Book feature at New York Magazine. Fun!
