Four years ago, Indianapolis native Scott Schuman launched The Sartorialist, a wildly popular and trailblazing street style blog. Now Schuman, 41, shoots for GQ, Vogue Paris, and Style.com, searching the streets of New York (where he lives), Stockholm, Moscow, Paris, Sydney—and even Philadelphia—for fabulous compositions. So why hasn’t he shot in Chicago when it’s so close to his hometown? He’s tried. But Chicagoans value preserving their extremities with a bulky North Face. Why make it complicated when Gore-Tex exists? Schuman knows we can do better. A stylish winter outfit can involve lots of visually appealing layers and textures. Maybe an orange cashmere sweater under a purple nylon Windbreaker under a nubby Harris Tweed coat? “The weather is no excuse,” he says. Take some baby steps with this Sartorialist-worthy fall look—before North Face season starts.
