The Sartorialist

I'm a huge fan of the famous fashion blog "The Sartorialist".  Over the years it has occurred to me though, that often the street fashion shown is cool mostly because of where it is.


Nice blazer, nice black layers.  Doesn't the fact that it's in Milan help though?


This picture in particular got me thinking.  It's labelled "Paris - snow weather".  Very cool and fashionable, right?  Would it be considered as fashion-forward if it was labelled "Dartmouth, Nova Scotia - blizzard"?  I'm just not sure.  Here's a little quiz.  See if you can guess which fashions are in Paris and which are in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.











Correct answers:  1,3,7 &9 Paris.  2,4,6 &8 Nova Scotia.
