    A reference to the TV show I suspect….Very nice suit/pocket square by the way, and the glasses work well. Hey Sart – ever thought about doing something on glasses/spectacles? As a short-sighter reader I would very much lke to hear your thoughts on this accessory.

    Definitely a reference to AMC’s “Mad Men”, saw it last night the style is impeccable. I love his cut off tie. Everyone seems to always have a cigarette in their hand in Europe, does everyone smoke over there.

    its such a great look, i know I’ll resist button down collars for some time but I am so rocking the tortoise shell spectacles and side parting these days. Sart what other tailoring details do you think are specific to that period?

    He looks wonderful. Certainly much better than the dynamic diaper duo. What is the name of this ‘cut’ or ‘type’ of suit. It’s incredible in it’s understated style. Yea for 50′s fashion. I hope to see a Mad Men fashion trend among the stripped shirt and untucked crowd. Hmmm…well hope does float eternal.

    I third or fourth to eyeglasses idea. Especially tortoise shell.

    My goodness, he is amazing! I love the way every single thing adds to the effect–the glasses, the fountain pen. Even (and I can’t believe I’m saying this, because I’m a fanatical non-smoker) his cigarette.

    This reminds me of police detective, but at the apperal his outfit reminds me of something from the 50′s. He does look like a professional of some sorts. Great shot none the less.

    Orgasmic to the extreme.

    Gorgeous without doubt.

    This is the man I want to claim mine.

    He dresses well. Great hair. Furrowed brows. Potentially-gorgeous-tousled hair that’s not a strand out of place. And the best thing….that cigarette.

    Absolutely genius in that the suit looks M-t-M, but could have possibly been off the rack. He has a frame for making suits look good. It kind of throws me back to old Godzilla movies in that so many of the men in those films were dressed so well. There could be fashion references for seasons on end from Godzilla vs. Mothra alone.

    Suddenly I’m hearing the theme for the original “Dragnet.” That’s the look, isn’t it?

    Skinny ties and narrow lapels pin down the decade this came from, but I like it a lot more than huge wide ties and wide lapels. Wouldn’t be a bad thing for neatly-suited and neatly-coiffed men to come into fashion again.

    This guy is super cool. He’s mastered the thing that every guy wishes for — being dressed up, but looking casual and up for anything. The 50s/60s skinny suit/tie thing is apt for this, since it doesn’t leave a lot of extra fabric flouncing around for no reason.

    To anon 1:03:
    That was my initial thought as well. Probably because of his movies “In the Mood for Love” and “2046″ which were both set in the 60′s.
