    If this is a navy blue suit, shouldn’t he be wearing something other than black shoes??

    I tend to prefer a higher gorge on my jackets, but something seems off with this one. Also, the lapel is rolling up on both sides. I’m not “feeling” this one.

    Handsome devil. Nice mix of colors/patterns.

    I really like the texture of his suit. But the hair/sideburns doesn’t quite work for me.

    Dear Sartorialist, can you spend a few words on the “ideal” lenght of trousers?

    I think formal trousers it should be like in this picture.

    In the past few years it’s been common (at least in the UK, Italy, and most of Europe) to wear trousers that go almost to the ground, so that just the heal of the shoes shows. Much like here: http://thesartorialist.blogspot.com/2007_04_01_archive.html#741140080259201943 .

    In a business suit, I personally prefer slightly shorter trousers like here: http://thesartorialist.blogspot.com/2007_04_01_archive.html#8348163535148558590 . About 1/2 of the shoe is showing and the crease on the front ot the leg has only a slight “break”. Sorter trousers, as you noted for jacket sleaves (http://thesartorialist.blogspot.com/2007_03_01_archive.html#4272943271960289259) also make people look a bit taller.

    I like casual trousers and jeans longer, but not to the point where they touch the ground.

    What do you think?

      A lot of guys now a days wear their pants too long, because they do not want to look like Steve Urkel. It should cover your shoe when standing still. Generally speaking the back of your trouser cuff should touch the shoes back heel. If you would like perfect pant please come in for a fitting at Clifton Charles.

    Though I like the handkerchief-tie colors and color follow-through, there are problems here, i.e., the hand in the pocket, which spreads a rather flared jacket closure even further apart–and the guy’s having buttoned the top button only (why?), which furthers that unwanted effect.

    It’s not enough just to choose a suit and have it fitted properly; you have to know how to wear it.

    Yelzer! That’s a HOT italian man!

    He knows he’s sexy and he’s saying, “Amare a me, il bambino!”

    butch, he buttoned the top button because that’s how it’s supposed to be, are you expecting to find someone on the street with all of them buttoned?
    that’s a great mix o colours and patterns, but I think this guy is not the best person to be using it.

    Eredi Chiarini is a boutique in Florence, It which mainly sells Ralph Lauren and Fay. You can find nice pieces of clothing but the shop assistants have a huge attitude.

    nice linen suit with patch pockets

    1) you’re only suppose to button the top button.

    2) the suit is linen, therefore the slightly rolling lapels and wrinkliness in the arms…thats the price you pay for being cool

    I thought the basic rule of thumb when it comes to buttoning a 3-peice suit is —

    TOP – sometimes
    MIDDLE – always
    BOTTOM – never

    Am I wrong?

    Eridi Chiarini is one of the best mens store in the world to me. They have a new “younger” corner on the top floor that’s really nice as well.
    They’re also one of the few where you’ll find Citrus Paradiso by Czech & Speak.
    (that shit is the bomb for any true sartorialist)
    The staff isn’t snobbish, they’re just Italian and proud of their knowledge.
    Staff with attitude? Try any store in Paris.
    (Except at Daniel Cremieux, those guys rule!)

    People have shown interest in the perfect pant length. Most people wear their pants to long because of their fear of looking like Steve Urkel. The pant should cover your shoes when standing still, but generally speaking the bottom of your pant cuff should touch your shoe. If you would like the perfect suit, shirt, trouser, cuff link, tie, or more come into Clifton Charles for affordable custom made clothing.

    I bought a blue and white stiped shirt there on a trip to Florence about 4 years ago. I
    LOVE that shirt and have looked for that shop every September when I come to Florence. I finally looked at the label and found your name and found your address on line. I knew it was in that area, but not which street. But I’ll be there after the 17th Sept. and will drop in.
    Maybe I’ll wear the shirt!
