Moving up the Sartorial Ladder
In this new episode of Sartorial Talks, Hugo and Sonya share their views, opinions and experiences on what they call "The Sartorial Ladder": a step-by-step journey toward personal elegance and style. Many gentlemen (and ladies) are becoming these days very attracted to classic style but most of them don't know where to begin in order to be ready to confront other people's gazes and jokes (like the infamous "are you going to a wedding" ?) and safely progress on their Sartorial learning curve. In this episode Hugo and Sonya have divided the journey in 12 different steps in order to help you moving up the Sartorial ladder : from your first steps in your first pair of "real" leather shoes to your mastering of the 3 piece suit and all its subtleties. 00:00 : INTRODUCTION03:53 : BUY A PAIR OF GOOD LEATHER SHOES04:44 : TRY CLASSIC TROUSERS05:48 : ADD A BUTTON-DOWN COLLAR SHIRT07:15 : PUT ON A SPORT / ODD JACKET11:40 : SWITCH TO A DRESS SHIRT14:20 : ADD A POCKET-SQUARE17:18 : STAY AWAY FROM (CONTRASTING) BELTS20:00: JUMP INTO YOUR FIRST SUIT 22:48 : ENJOY NECKWEAR27:15 : TRY ON THE PATTERNED SUIT29:15 : LEARN HOW TO MIX PATTERNS32:22 : DOUBLE BREASTED OR THREE PIECE ?4’44 : 2 - TRY CLASSIC TROUSERSTo support the show: patreon.com/sartorialtalksSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/sartorialtalks)

Fred Astaire, Gary Cooper and Cary Grant: They don't make them like that anymore...
In this new episode of Sartorial Talks, the Podcast, Hugo and Sonya share their admiration for three style icons and ask the question: why when we speak of style icons, we most of the time refer to men of the 1930s and 1940s and not to men of today? Is it simply a question of clothing? Film stars of the ‘golden age’ of Hollywood were actually never revered for their dress alone. Fred Astaire, Gary Cooper, and Cary Grant were, and still are, eulogised for what they represented, which was often a moral integrity or an aversion to excess, of which their dress was a key signifier.

The aim is to find out if this would be interesting, entertaining and even enlightening for our followers and subscribers. Let us know what you think so that can we decide if we continue producing shows on this topic and why not dedicate a podcast channel to it.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/sartorialtalks)

What is Style ? How to find my own Style ?
How to define Style ?Yves Saint Laurent called it eternal.Coco Chanel said that when everything else fades, it remains.Audrey Hepburn said everyone has his own.Charles Bukowski called it “everything”, saying that Joan of Arc had style, John the Baptist, Jesus, Socrates, Ceasar, Garcia Lorca…A common perception is that you must put a lot of thought and effort into displaying style in the way you dress and present yourself to others. It's certainly one of the most overused words other than chic and fashion, within the realm of how we dress.In this episode, Sonya and Hugo discuss two techniques to try to develop your own style, beginning with a method called heuristics, and ending with a revelation specific to finding your style by E.B. White (discussed in his 1959 enlarged and revised work by William Strunk, Jr. in his dissertation, “The Elements of Style” from 1918).Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/sartorialtalks)
