My ties are too long for me since I have a short torso and small neck, but I’ve never had a tie altered- I guess one could, though. Do any of you have ties altered to the perfect length? Funny I’d never thought of it before. Khaki is an Indian word (place name?) and, as a color, means the color of white fabric died with tea, which the Brits did in India for soom reason I’ve forgotten. Love the suit and all the accessories. Like the break and the narrow ankle. I would think a simple hem is what you’d normally do with plain front cotton pants- even as part of a suit, but I don’t know. What would the person above who commented on the hem like to see? I would not mind a sleeker, more sophisticated shoe, but I don’t think a more casual one would work with the formality imparted by the shirt/tie/pocket square. Hmm, lot to say about this opne. Last but certainly not least, this is a really beautiful photograph! Thanks.

He looks straight out of a Bond film.

He looks great!…just one thing bothers me dough…the tie!…I think it’s not knotted properly, the tip should be just up the belt buckle.. like it is now..it gives strange sense disproportion making the pants look way up…call me eccentric but..

Dan – just wrap the tie around twice or go under first then wrap it once or twice and it will shorten up

how in the heck does this shot only have 4 (four, really?!) comments. this is quintessential summer suit, and especially noteworthy for how completely empty a Roma street is (what time was this, Scott? 6am?!)
i dig the unbuttoned cuff on the both the shirt and suit. terrifically smart. the suit, the haircut, the colors, the cut of the suit … all scream summer.
great as always, scott.
post — btw, dig the eye wear direction you’re heading with luxotica.

Via Roma in Florence is in the zona pedonale and automobile access is severely restricted. As justly critical one can be of the Italian urban infrastructure, in city after city the authorities have done a great job of limiting automobile traffic, restoring the streets to pedestrians, and removing automobiles from the great public spaces. I was recently in Paris, having an aperitif in a café on the extraordinarily elegant Place Bourbon–its beauty severely compromised by the cars parked there as well as passing through. This wouldn’t have been the case in Rome.

Great looking guy. Other than the length of the tie, and the distracting breaks on the trousers, this man looks perfect.
