He’s the man behind the streetstyle blog movement. Scott Schuman, or The Sartorialist to fashion photography lovers, was in Vancouver recently to promote his new book of beautiful images, Closer.

There was some serious sartorial love for Scott Schuman at Gastown’s gorgeous boutique/resto, Secret Location, where Vancouverites lined up for hours for an opportunity to shake hands, make small talk and get their books and prints signed by the famous photographer/blogger.

We at Jugni Style braved the rain and the cold to meet The Sartorialist, and snapped a few shots of the everso fashionable man at the special event. And despite meeting and greeting fans for hours, the man was charming and gracious, and his steely blue eyes even more sparkly than expected. Sidenote: We’ll definitely be making another trip back to Secret Location, where beautiful books, bags and interesting pieces all star.
