    Dr. Salee? He looks like my Int’l Public Affairs professor from university.

    Not a fanatic, but it does look sorta cute.

    I think the match of his jacket(it is a jacket, right?) and pants is so adorable

    The colors and the forms, the suit isn’t the answer to all men.

    I think this is a Bavarian or Austrian jacket. Linen.

    A few wrinkles shows you’re above prissy concerns. But this many… it looks like he stores his clothes by tying them up into wadded balls and kicking them into the closet like a soccer goal. ;-)

    Even I, a guy who totally hates ironing, must admit… this could really use ironing.

    I love the four colors together in the pic but not the jacket… bit frumpy.

    This looks like a stylized Mao jacket in from Shanghai Tang or a French farmers jacket. Interesting blend of East Meets West aesthetic.

    I like his rumpled style. My first thought was “What was the Sartorialist doing in Green Bay?”

    PS. I am slowly weaning off my association of green and gold with the Packers. It still happens when I am caught by surprise. :-)

    Despite the nice fit and gorgeous colors, the wrinkles on the suit ruin it for me.

    It’s quirky. He plays with the colors and textures very well… jacket reminds me of a barber’s jacket for some reason.

    This jacket reminds me of Paul Poiret’s jacket in the book, _Poiret_, by Yvonne Deslandres; sort of unstructured without alot of padding. I think it must be very comfortable and I am glad to see it since I despise shoulderpads and those canvas things they put in men’s suiting.

    I doubt that this is a german or austrian jacket but being german, I think the fabric would be called “loden”.

    Dear Sartorialist, great pictures and some that seem surprisingly unspectacular to me. wundervoll, though! ;D

    It’s a …cardiket?…a jackigan?…

    …I love the colour combo and unique fit of all the pieces. It shouldn’t work, but somehow it does.

    a bit hobbit-like. cute with a bit too short trousers and the bright color on his shoes.

    If indeed this is a “Germanic-style” (so as not to offend either Bavarians or Austrians, both of whom would probably claim the style as their own), I love to see it. My husband, a thoroughly Latin and middle-eastern mix, has a loden jacket from his time in Germany, and it just says something special about the wearer.

    Nice color mix but the trousers are short for my taste…
    Dear Sartorialist,

    Hey, Scott. Can you switch back to hosting the larger-sized photos? The Flickr photos are smaller.

    The jacket feels like it came out of Mr. Roger’s wardrobe closet. I love it.

    I recently found an old jacket that looks almost exactly like the one in this photo, except it is made of thick wool.

    The tag says it was made in Austria.

    This is the only other time I have seen something like it. I’d love if someone could post some information on this style of jacket.

    I’ve realized there are two types of comments on this blog. Those who takeaway something positive. And those who nitpick on negatives.

    If we ALL agreed one way or another what a boring world this would be.

    Really enjoy the blog. Usually love your photos. This one does not appeal to me. The colors are good but pants do not fit and jacket is odd.

    Dear Sir in photo, Please ignore the comments about the wrinkles–the folds and creases in your gorgeous loden-green jacket are what makes it zing, and is an earthy-sophisticated contrast to your impecable shirt and tie. Your chinos are perfect as they are, including their shorter length, which is a flattering 60s era look that needs to be seen more often.

    great, great color, and very surprising. I like the cut/long placket, but the material (linen?) and the lack of a strong lining/structure are giving this guy the dreaded man-boobs, at least in this picture. I don’t think ironing would help that problem — this jacket needs interlining or to be cut in a different fabric, like wool, that won’t grab the body’s contours so tightly.
