Nope, sorry–the suit is ill-fitting, even if meant to be slimmer/shorter.
The fly-away collar doesn’t exactly add distinction, either.
September 22, 2007 at 12:13 pm
This guy has a beautiful face. But isn’t it completely obvious to anyone with a shred of historical sense that, in two or three years, we will look back at costumes like this and say, What on earth were we thinking? Oh, and he really should wash his hair. Sorry, this may be too negative for you Scott.
September 22, 2007 at 12:38 pm
Awful fit. Arms too tight. Fabric is twisting all over the place. And he needs collar stays in his shirt.
He’s a handsome bloke, but, the clothes… definitely not.
September 22, 2007 at 1:06 pm
guy in suit….hmpf
September 22, 2007 at 1:17 pm
classic….just love it!
September 22, 2007 at 1:45 pm
I know this tight/short suit thing is very hip, but to me it just looks uncomfortable.
September 22, 2007 at 1:47 pm
To me this jacket of his seems too small.There is nothing really interesting in this photo,sorry.
September 22, 2007 at 1:53 pm
reminds me of the kind of suits 007 (sean connery of course) wore. He looks great-h
September 22, 2007 at 2:00 pm
the fact this young man is wearing a suit, makes me hopeful that this overly casual flip flop wearing baggy t shirt and slouchy pant unkempt hair attitude may be nearing an end. but i said hopeful.

The jacket is just too small!
September 22, 2007 at 2:20 pm
Jacket is ALL WRONG. Sleeves are too short and skinny, the shoulders are too narrow and the curve of the jacket’s torso is puckering (in fact, the whole damn jacket is puckering) due to the improper fit. Can’t see anything redeeming about the suit. Don’t care for the unbuttoned shirt and tie either. You must decide, unbutton the shirt and wear no tie, or button it up and have a tie.
September 22, 2007 at 2:21 pm
I LOVE grey.
September 22, 2007 at 2:49 pm
it may not fit super well, but its better than jeans and a tshirt
September 22, 2007 at 3:27 pm
If he breathes he is going to pop a button! Way way way too small on him. You can achieve this look without the puckering and pulling we see here.
September 22, 2007 at 3:30 pm
jamesy,But did you see the “guy?!?”
The slim fit is a touch extreme but nice.
September 22, 2007 at 4:10 pm
men like that just walk around on the streets?stunned here
September 22, 2007 at 4:18 pm
I don’t think the suit was meant to follow the general guidelines of a good fit. The picture plays between the idea of formal/professional and casual/a bit sloppy. His hair is a little messy, he hasn’t shaved, but yet, he’s wearing a tightly fitted suit and a slim tie. I actually really enjoy this juxtaposition.
September 22, 2007 at 4:26 pm
oh wow. hes beautiful….
what color is the suit again?
September 22, 2007 at 5:26 pm
Perfect! The suit is very nice. Laidback style, but dressed aswell:)
September 22, 2007 at 6:55 pm
whether the suit fits “properly”,or not,is utterly irrelevant,because this beautiful young man looks fabulous.rules only exist for people who don’t know how to break them.
September 22, 2007 at 7:35 pm
i don’t mean to date myself, but this kid seriously looks like taylor hanson. right?? although, i can’t really imagine him wearing such a super suit in new york, so i suppose it can’t really be him. either way, i love the fitted jacket. it creates a really good contrast with everything going on above his shoulders. he looks like he was born in it.
September 22, 2007 at 9:52 pm
i do like the concept, loving narrower sleeves, not sure if this completely hits the right notes. really look at the proportions. his head and hands seem out of proportion to his wee frame and narrow shoulders, and i think the suit might be to blame. but then again, judging from his shirt and tie, perhaps this is supposed to be all together a more casual reinterpretation of the classic suit?
September 22, 2007 at 11:20 pm
i love it.
September 22, 2007 at 11:32 pm
The suit looks cool for sure, but I bet it is a bit difficult to move around in it. In this case I guess form dosen’t follow function.
September 23, 2007 at 12:15 am
I actually really like the ‘tight look’ of a suit when it applies when buttoned only rather then the suit as a whole, which unfortunately is the case here. With the short length of both jacket and sleeves, instead of the cool and progressive modern look it just seems to suggest he got the size devestatingly wrong.
September 23, 2007 at 1:18 am
Nothing stylish about a suit that is just plain too small on him. His arm is bent because he probably can’t straigten it out in that little boy’s size 14 suit.
September 23, 2007 at 3:13 am
I genuinely think he made the one-button suit work… he won’t look as outstanding as he does now if he were to go a size bigger on the jacket, i must say…
September 23, 2007 at 3:50 am
He looks like the lead singer of Hanson…

theres something very appealing about this imagethe man is beautiful undoubtedlybut his stance is appealinglike the moment a boy recognises himself as a manthe transition is caughtheldrevealed and revealingall in one moment
September 23, 2007 at 10:08 am
I love this kind of short jacket!
September 23, 2007 at 10:31 am
guys, get over yourselves. this is a young man who wants to wear tailored clothes without looking as if he works in an office. last time i went to my tailor (kilgour on savile row, who made cary grant’s suits) the fitters were talking about shorter jacket lengths etc. it’s a way of making suits look modern again.
September 23, 2007 at 10:39 am
curious fit, not very sure that it works on this guy.
September 23, 2007 at 2:14 pm
whoever knew wearing a suit could be such a provocative thing to do? this man is clearly making a number of readers hot under the collar for DARING to wear a tightly tailored suit, because he is not doing it properly. But who said there was one way to wear a suit? Maybe it’s ok to wear a suit to be sexually attractive (as this guy does) rather then because you have to as a lawyer (or something). Rip up them rule books…
September 23, 2007 at 3:36 pm
super sexy. A young look that works on young beautiful men like him.
September 23, 2007 at 4:18 pm
jag skulle inte banga.
September 23, 2007 at 6:40 pm
Very Rufus Wainwright-esque.
September 23, 2007 at 6:54 pm
the skinny tie does not go with the wide collar.
But the grey is beautiful and so is the young man.
September 23, 2007 at 10:31 pm
This is very 60′s London Mod. Reminds me of old video of rockers like the Rolling Stones from that era. Still look very cool! SMJ
September 23, 2007 at 10:59 pm
I think he looks hip NOW! Who cares about tomorrow or next year, I like him right now!
September 23, 2007 at 11:23 pm
A perfect example of why Thom Browne proportions do no work on any man over 5’11″.
September 24, 2007 at 1:00 am
Sure, this look will go out of (mainstream) style someday, but it will always be cool. The hip punkrock kids have been wearing shrunken 50s/60s stuff for years and years now… It just so happens that the corporate-types have deemed this as acceptable for now.
September 24, 2007 at 3:03 am
is that a Hanson brother? looks uncannily like one of them..
September 24, 2007 at 9:04 am
There are too many people here who think that it is sufficient to wear a small short suit to be the height of cool. It is self evident that small suits are just as susceptible to being wrongly fitted as normal ones. Done right its a look done wrong its just wrong. Try hard style is not sexy. Olus he loks like he slept in the thing. Which goes against the whole ethos of that look,
September 24, 2007 at 9:30 am
i’d love to have a single button suit like that one. that suit is amazing. its a little snug, but damn nice.
September 24, 2007 at 10:57 am
Looks great-his overall look is good too. JI think the suit needs a pressing though.
September 24, 2007 at 1:20 pm
The guy is handsome, though his suit seems to be a bit askewed.

No, no, no. This is all wrong. I understand what this look is trying to accomplish, but it simply doesn’t work. I don’t care what the fashion of the moment is, a suit should at least fit well to look good. This one doesn’t. Love the colour combination though.
September 24, 2007 at 3:19 pm
re the wrinkles and puckers, it looks as though he got caught in a rainstorm, which he most likely did.
but i have to admit, i’m hardly looking at his suit. he’s just so beautiful.
September 24, 2007 at 5:30 pm
I like suits that are cool looking and still classy/professional. I can’t see being taken seriously in a business setting wearing this guy. On paper it’s got all the right elements for a hip, modern suit. But the execution is all wrong…
September 24, 2007 at 5:49 pm
Is he a model? Jeez, he’s stunning. I actually like the short length of the jacket but think it should be let out through the body just a tad, so it’s still fitted but not pulling at the button. And I concur with whoever commented on the wide collar/skinny tie = bad combo idea. Not that it really matters, though. He’s trying, and with that face and body, he really doesn’t have to if he doesn’t want to.
September 25, 2007 at 5:05 am
I totally agree that he looks like taylor hansen.
September 25, 2007 at 11:50 am
i like it. does anyone where i can get a suit like that?
September 25, 2007 at 12:27 pm
wow! this photois great! the light is perfect!
September 27, 2007 at 5:12 pm
no,no, no, the suit is much too small. wake up guys…
September 29, 2007 at 1:33 am
This suit is just made to be wear by a blond angel! Ha ha ha ha ha…
What happens with teenagers guys…
When I was 17, I was just looking like a total retard!
Anyway, I’m not going to complain about that! ;-)
September 29, 2007 at 3:29 am
this guy is a dead-ringer for Taylor Hansen!
jacket too tight, pants too big but fabric just right! interesting color and texture.
October 1, 2007 at 1:59 am
When is taking fashion to far is the question I often ask? I think this is a perfect example, this suit is not complimenting at all. There is no replacing a properly fitting suit( IF YOU WANT TO BE DIFFERENT USE ACCESSORIES ARE SOMETHING BUT DON’T COMPROMISE FIT)!
October 1, 2007 at 7:09 am
great that more and more guys are wearing the suits that fit too small, very school boy-ish.we probably all laugh our heads off in a couple of seasons, but hey… at least this is a statement that stands out of the ‘boring’ crowd! you need to have confidence to pull this look off.only negative : the hair… please go see a hairdresser soon…:-)
October 3, 2007 at 11:49 pm
his a young man wearing a suit(a tight and wrinkly suit yes), not a kevin federline look a like. i think we should be grateful for that alone.
and his cute..

i would love to pass him when walking in the city! i might trip and fall, though!
March 10, 2009 at 6:30 pm
He’s like a suave Taylor Hanson!
