Tumblr Tuesday: Sartorial Inspiration
When looking for sartorial inspiration, you have many different sources. From Pinterest to Instagram, the list goes on. Instagram alone has 139,484 posts under #sartorial. And the amount of sites and images dedicated to the sartorial lifestyle are blossoming on Tumblr as well. With its minimalistic and often ad-free environment, Tumblr is an easy choice to get your sartorial fix. Depending on the site, the images are larger as well. So in honor of Tumblr Tuesday, I present to you the top sartorial Tumblrs.
1. Put This On
If you’re a frequent browser on Tumblr, it’s no secret that the site is a source for images. Taken from sites and photographers all over the Internet, text based Tumblrs aren’t as common as the image based ones. So, it is quite refreshing to see blogs with wads of text in them. This is where, “Put This On” excels. The writer provide readers with insightful, image rich posts in a digital environment that often focuses on images.
Much like the other sites on the list, “Beyond Fabric” is very sartorial heavy. But unlike the other sites, there is a greater focus on the lifestyle of a sartorialist. With a healthy mix of text and images, Beyond Fabric gives readers a taste of what it means to completely immerse oneself in this culture. So, you’ll see some vintage cars, bikes and environments.
“Your Style Men,” is another one of those sites that offer a collection of sartorially rich content. Organized in a grid-like pattern, the layout efficiently packs content per loaded page. The images are rather choosy. If you’re looking to be inspired sartorially, this is a site worthy of taking up space in your favorites list.
Another great website, “Aggressively Sartorial” follows a minimalistic formula. The options to like, share, reblog or zoom are cleverly hidden only to be revealed when moving the cursor over the image. The site is set to continuously load past content, so you get more photographic goodness before having to wait for new images to load.
This last one deserves high marks for content and layout. The layout provides viewers with a minimalistic view, quite common on Tumblr. And by sharing one decently sized image per post, readers can focus on one special image at a time. It’s an image packed blog that definitely warrants a look.
