The collar is so great!!!! never seen it before! where can i buy one?hope it become a main stream as well, besides polo button down, ainsley, london…

Oh how I love that collar! The hat would be better in wool, given the time of year & the suit fabric. Wish we could see the rest of him…the cut of the pants, his shoes.

December 18, 2008 at 10:58 am
everything is absolutely beautiful. they say the suit makes me the man, but here it is definitely the man that makes the suit!
December 18, 2008 at 10:59 am
To Scott P: This was probably one of the freaky warm December days we’ve been getting lately. Either that or Sart held out this pic from the warmer months. I like the cut of the suit from what I can see
December 18, 2008 at 11:09 am
and no comments from the ‘diversity council’, I see…
December 18, 2008 at 11:16 am
i like the suit, not sure about the shirt. it probably will have to grow on me.
December 18, 2008 at 11:57 am
No, I don’t get it. It’s just the wrong collar for the suit. And the tie seems to want to be worn with a morning suit.
December 18, 2008 at 12:04 pm
Given me somthin’ I can feel…that’s what I’m talkin’ about!

December 18, 2008 at 12:07 pm
wow, nice suit!
December 18, 2008 at 12:19 pm
Call me conservative but wearing a tuxedo shirt (or at least one similar to it) to a suit and adding a tie in the mix, as well as that hat. That just does not look right. (especially since the hat and the tie are too black for the suit)
December 18, 2008 at 12:20 pm
Wrong hat, right idea. But I now want to go emulate this look exactly. Perfection. Especially the peaked lapels.
Kudos to him on creativity/bravery.
I would like to see him try it with a higher gorge on the jacket (or a waistcoat – double-breasted?), and a felt fedora instead.
December 18, 2008 at 12:37 pm
Wooo. Just lovely. The collar is a unique element.
He calls to mind ska, both the Jamaican in the 50′s and the revivalists of the 80′s.
Question: Does anyone know where I can find a casual stylish ankle length skirt? I’ve got a friend who’s an amputee (got one leg, she uses crutches or occasionally a prosthetic leg). She needs lots of long skirts to wear as an everyday staple (for everything from a casual dinner out to going to the market) as we wear jeans. Any suggestions?

** London – Saw a girl wearing a full long skirt in red with an oversized white sleeveless TShirt with flats. She had a scarf knotted 1920s style holding her hair back. The proportions were lovely.

i’d love to see more wing collars. its very early 1900′s and makes me think of well dressed men with tall, starched collars and ornate neckties.

@Anon 11:09 LOL! Well as a defunct member of the “diversity council” let me just say this is more my speed!
Sart I have to find that shirt, were you able to get where this guy got his from?
Also the horizontal stripes for the tie are dope!@Anon 11:57 what is a “morning suit?” Don’t you put a suit on and wear it all day? or do people really change their suit depending on the time of day? seems a bit ridiculous IMO but then, I’m a college student.
As for the hat, he probably picked it because he likes it, not necessarily because of the weather. That shirt, that shirt, that shirt!!!!
December 18, 2008 at 2:09 pm
The hat is growing on me. The right thing about the hat is that the broad black of the hat band reflects the horizontal line of the tie peeking from under the wing collar.
December 18, 2008 at 2:17 pm
Very nice. He looks sharp!
December 18, 2008 at 2:31 pm
“Hmmm, straw hat in winter? A bit of a mistake, I think.”
I would understand this comment if the photo was taken in, say, Canada for example – but I don’t see what is inappropriate about his choice here. It looks nice.
December 18, 2008 at 3:23 pm
He looks stylish and this “wing collar” is an interesting idea. I think I’ve never seen a men’s shirt like this before.
December 18, 2008 at 3:28 pm
the collar reminds me of how varvatos pops the collars on his models and makes them just look winged, but i dont think they really are.
also, about the hat being straw in the winter. i just recently read a quote from some italian tailor who was talking about wearing a linen blazer in the winter with a cashmere tie and wool pants. he said he wears the ‘summer’ blazer then as to remind himself that the summer will be here soon enough. theres no need to follow ‘the rules’.
December 18, 2008 at 3:31 pm
Wow !Perfect fit ! Great tie ! Absolutely great shirt and fabulous collar…He added a little personal touch with that hat …10+
December 18, 2008 at 3:38 pm
Looks like Monk!
December 18, 2008 at 4:35 pm
Everything looks good on him and he’s very attractive.

after a few years of ties being “out” it’s nice to see them coming back! The tie-less suit only worked for very few and the rest looked like they hadn’t finished dressing. Even better if “fancy” collars become the go! I think we are moving to a late dix-neuvieme century look with this and all the beards on the guys posted recently.
December 18, 2008 at 8:45 pm
You won’t find a suit like this on anyone else! Its unique and its fresh and it works! :)
December 18, 2008 at 9:07 pm
He is so handsome and elegant. I don’t know how to describe, but he seems very comfortable and at peace with himself and that is very striking.
December 18, 2008 at 9:45 pm
This is very Special AKA.
Surprisingly, the only this I dislike about this is the peak lapel.
December 18, 2008 at 11:17 pm
Love it. Get the look at REISS. Come to figure out I saw this guy on West Broadway a few days ago. Someone check West Broadway REISS to see if he’s there..I must check the store is located b/w Broome and Spring. will keep you posted.
December 18, 2008 at 11:27 pm
I dissent. A winged collar? No. Just no.
December 19, 2008 at 4:24 am
The hat is classic Rudie stylings circa 1960s Jamaica.They were more about 3 button lapels than 2 (as am I) but this guy looks Sharp…
I wonder if people have figured out that your photos don’t always correspond to the current season of the cities in which they were taken.
It was really warm the past couple of days here in NYC but I think this photo is from your archives.Am I correct?
Feeling this guys style 100 percent btw.
Oh, How about those Obama pics in the post today?Coolest president ever!!!!!
December 19, 2008 at 7:48 am
Finally! A man who looks polished but interesting, too. I wish I saw more instances of clever fashion like this but it doesn’t look like he’s trying at all. Well done. And thanks Sart – as a woman who loves women’s fashion you’re making me a lot more interested in men’s wear!

Really nice powerfull photo
December 19, 2008 at 8:53 am
He is gorgeous. I hope hats on men come back–and I’m not talking about baseball caps or wool ski caps.I love seeing people so perfectly pressed, especially men.
December 19, 2008 at 9:03 am
I still think the hat is a bit of a mistake. Especially when the same company makes their “Stroll” hats which have the same sillouette, but are cloth instead of straw.
The fact that it’s dark does lessen the impact of the straw a little bit, however. You need to look at it up close to see it’s straw.
I’m all for wearing straw hats in spring and even early fall. But it just doesn’t seem that right in wintertime (tropical climates excluded, of course).
December 19, 2008 at 9:08 am
Love the suit….and the hat!

December 19, 2008 at 4:25 pm
What a fine looking man. The suits fits perfectly and I love the wing collar dressed down with the tie. This guy certainly knows his fashion. Leave the hat alone, I think it finishes off his look. The suit and shirt are both Reiss. I bought the suit in the Sale last weekend. Great discounts!
December 19, 2008 at 4:52 pm
where can i get his number?
December 19, 2008 at 10:50 pm
he’s the manager at reiss on w. broadway and a very lovely brit!
December 20, 2008 at 10:01 am
Does this mean that we’re about to return to an era when men had dozens of collar styles from which to choose at their local haberdashery? Please, please, please.
Monique (Anon 12:37) – 7 gore skirts are not too hard to make. Your friend should get them made for her. A good maker will be able to evaluate her stance and gait and assure that the width and length of the skirt are flattering and not cumbersome.

This guy makes the ‘stache look cool.
December 20, 2008 at 11:43 am
I thought of “ska” too when I saw the photo.
December 21, 2008 at 2:22 am
he works at reiss. amazing man with style for sure

To Elementality – morning suits are more formal wear – something you might wear to a wedding.
This fellow is very handsome. I think he looks British
December 22, 2008 at 1:47 am
December 22, 2008 at 3:05 am
almost like he stepped out of a Jazz club.
December 22, 2008 at 1:39 pm
Style reminds me of Thelonius Monk c. 1964. It’s the “stingy brim” hat that does it.
December 22, 2008 at 6:24 pm
That tie is great!!

This handsome gent dresses me for all of the important events in NYC, and he has style. So proud to see Lyndon on the Satorialist!!!You rock with that hat baby!! Can I borrow it???
December 25, 2008 at 8:02 pm
he used to be my manager at Reiss…wonder if he still works there?
December 26, 2008 at 12:26 am
I mos def like the outfit. He could’ve used a better hat but it’s still great!
December 26, 2008 at 5:58 pm
WOW he is stunning!
December 27, 2008 at 4:40 pm
It’s nice to see somebody with a little taste. He makes the hat work by downplaying the suit.
December 29, 2008 at 7:43 pm
December 30, 2008 at 4:34 am
also don’t forget about his suit-it’s pretty rare as well:a one button with peaked lapels. that’s something I think I might want to try
January 1, 2009 at 2:30 pm
Wow ! Very nice. The only little thing I would change was the color/pattern of the tie. Fantastic hat !
January 10, 2009 at 2:56 pm
Something is just not right. Maybe its the wing collar shirt.Spread collar would have been a better choice.
January 10, 2009 at 8:25 pm
The suit is good–the recent revival of peaked lapels has seen too few tasteful examples. The combination of the casual hat with the peaked lapels and peculiarly-shaped wing collar, however, is dissonant. It’s a likable outfit, but I would advise a good homburg or fedora next time.
