The Closing Word: Sartorial

The Closing Word: SartorialThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you an example of how to use it.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (sar-TORE-ee-uhl)

1. of or relating to a tailor or to tailoring, clothes, or style of dress
2. of or relating to the sartorius muscle

From “Sartorial comes from the Modern Latin word sartor which means “tailor,” literally “one who patches and mends.” In English the adjectives sartorial and sartorially are used to refer to any matter pertaining to the consideration of clothing or fashion. The root word sartor has also made its way into the field of biology. The sartorius — a muscle in the leg and the longest muscle in the human body — gets its name because it is used when crossing the legs, also known as the tailor’s position.”

“First impressions often begin with your sartorial decisions, so keep your wardrobe looking sharp!”
