A female perspective on Grey Fox: Introducing Sarah Gilfillan of Sartoria Lab

As an outsider in the fashion world, I write with more enthusiasm than knowledge. I need a more expert view on some aspects of Grey Fox's content. So, I've invited Sarah Gilfillan, a menswear stylist of Sartoria Lab, to contribute from time to time to the blog.

Sarah will bring much expertise of the fashion business and, most importantly, she'll bring the female perspective to Grey Fox Blog. Women's views heavily influence how we dress, so Sarah will fill a gap. I'm grateful to her for helping in this way. She'll be giving advice on affordable menswear in a blog post later this week.

I asked Sarah to say a little about her approach -
Like it or not we all subconsciously make assumptions about people based on their appearance, and statistics show that it takes just a matter of seconds to form an opinion on someone when you meet them for the first time. This judgement is made pretty much exclusively on how they look. 
That's why I think it's important to take pride in your appearance, and why I run Sartoria Lab, a personal style consultancy for men. I help men with their personal shopping and styling who perhaps don't have either the time or the inclination to do it themselves and don't have enough interest to research new places and brands to shop, but still want to look good. I do have that interest, and take absolute pleasure in helping these men to look and feel their best.
People are automatically drawn to someone who looks attractive (and who doesn't want to feel attractive and alluring to others?!) so why not make the best of what you have?
You can find out a little more about Sarah on the 'About' page of her website Sartoria Lab here.

Yes, women do indeed notice a nicely dress guy. You wouldn't believe the compliments I get from female colleagues and students simply for wearing a jacket, tie, and decent leather shoes. . . although my wife thinks I'm making it up.

Best Regards,
