The Sartorialist

If you're a fashion nerd, designer, or just enjoy looking at well dressed people from around the world, this is the place for you. The Sartorialist is a photo-blog by Scott Schuman (former director of men's fashion at Bergdorf Goodman) of people on the street who's style has captured his attention. I've only just stumbled upon it and so far I really dig it. It doesn't feel pretentious or elitist at all, it's really positivel. Here's what he has to say about it in his biography section:

I thought I could shoot people on the street the way designers looked at people, and get and give inspiration to lots of people in the process. My only strategy when I began The Sartorialist was to try and shoot style in a way that I knew most designers hunted for inspiration. Rarely do they look at the whole outfit as a yes or no but they try and look for the abstract concepts of color, proportion, pattern mixing or mixed genres. I'm always really happy when I meet a designer and hear that they use some of my photos for their inspiration boards. At the same time I'm also really touched when I get emails from everyday people who say they have been inspired to see themselves and others in a new and usually more accepting way.
