Photographer Scott Schuman’s stream of street style photography published under the guise of “The Sartorialist” has become a top destination for menswear lovers. Last year Schuman dreamed up the “Lunch for 25″ concept while sitting at a small Trattoria in Florence with a colleague. The plan was to reach the gentlemen whom he’d featured on the site over the years and invite them to enjoy drinks, conversation, and food under the same roof. A summit of style. It was the least he could do considering the imagery he’d captured over the years that had garnered his blog so much attention, wouldn’t have been possible without this diverse group. Flash forward to 2012 and here’s a video showcasing of the first of what is to be a series of similar events. Whether or not you happen to be a menswear guru (of which I am definitely not) it’s interesting to see diversity of style and camaraderie between these guys from around the world. And yes, Kanye was there. Of course.
