Sartorialism is the new term in town...I googled it and here is what I found...Its origin is from "The Sartorialist", its a fashion blog by Scott Schuman in New York.After leaving a fashion sales position to take care of his daughter in 2005, he began carrying a digital camera around on the streets of New York City, taking pictures of people who had dressed in some way that caught his eye, and then posting them to his blog, sometimes with comments about what he finds.
He describes his philosophy as trying to echo how fashion designers looked at what they saw on the street:
“ 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"
Now it has evolved to become an adjective, If they say your sartorial that means your chic and stylish... :P
