Great picture ;)
December 7, 2006 at 6:59 pm
I like all three! Even the girl has something cool going on. The motion the shot conveys is great. Plus the light . . . .

quite the intimidating grimace
December 7, 2006 at 7:23 pm
The guy in the backgound seems to be wearing a very nice coat!
December 7, 2006 at 7:32 pm
LIKE: Lovely classic pinstripe suit. The unicolor approach is well played. The “bedhead” haircut adds a modern touch. Love the simple white pocket square. It looks like he also did a Windsor knot on his tie which is perfect for his spread collar shirt.
December 7, 2006 at 7:39 pm
…..sex in motion…….he’s HOT!
December 7, 2006 at 7:43 pm
just a SMIDGE too tight in the waist otherwise a great cut. The shirt wears like it was made for that suit and check out that posture!
December 7, 2006 at 7:47 pm
hot cool hot hot damn…i’m saying hot double breasted suit NOT hot man lol….i’ve always maintained that japanese/asian men have the best style..

Wow. They sometimes look better walking than in the usual stand-pose position. So candid. You can compare with the various people shown too.
he’s too darn hot to be cold like the rest of us mere mortals.
December 7, 2006 at 8:04 pm
You’ve shot him before, no? He still looks sexified due to some magical combination of cuff, kerchief and coiffe.
December 7, 2006 at 8:05 pm
I love this image! There is a sense of bizarre fiction: like this guy is a beautiful android dressed in a perfect fit suit…walking Manhattan aimlessly.
December 7, 2006 at 8:23 pm
New York is the most beatiful place of this world,i think so.
Nice blog and greetings from Spain

I just wish you’d venture out into the other boroughs… and I don’t mean going to Williamsburg or Park Slope or Fort Greene. I mean, shit, come to Flatbush or the South Bronx or Astoria. It’s not all baggy jeans, fitted caps and Ups. And even if it is… some of these kids do amazing imaginitive things with colors and cuts. And they’re not referring to style magazines for the tips either ;)
December 7, 2006 at 9:20 pm
That’s an impeccably cut suit, but he looks very stiff and uncomfortable in it which takes away from his look.
December 7, 2006 at 9:32 pm
Didn’t we see him and this suit previously? Almost sure–no, I AM sure we did.
Nice to see clothes in motion, as it were….
December 7, 2006 at 9:47 pm
not usually a fan of double brested suits but the look on his face is awesome and the specific wild hair style is great!
December 7, 2006 at 9:50 pm
I don’t like double brested suits in general and his is tugging a little across his chest. BUT I do love the look on his face, his confident stride and the specifically wild hairstyle!
December 7, 2006 at 9:54 pm
Is this an image you captured on the street or did you download an expensive ad campaign? It’s quite evocative and wonderful
December 7, 2006 at 9:57 pm
Perfect man-shape. I prefer the leather jacket in the background though.
December 7, 2006 at 10:10 pm
Has the double-breasted suit returned?
December 7, 2006 at 10:13 pm
December 7, 2006 at 10:17 pm
he may be the most beautiful man i have ever seen.
December 7, 2006 at 10:53 pm
December 7, 2006 at 10:57 pm
The double-breasted suit is officially back. Nice.
December 7, 2006 at 11:39 pm
i wish i had presence like that.
December 7, 2006 at 11:43 pm
Great DB. I dig the length, erring on the side of shorter, especially for a DB gives it a much younger feel. The strong slant on the high peak lapels are another nice touch. Emphasizes the shoulders, slims the waist. Cool beans.
I think this is the first landscape fashion shot I’ve ever seen on this blog X-D
December 8, 2006 at 12:01 am
is this a new trend among your pictures? interesting, but i do miss the more upfront and intimate shots than this paparazzi style. nice diversion from the usual though. :)
December 8, 2006 at 12:19 am
hey, its the Domenico Vacca 5th Ave. manager! I love that he is wearing a double breasted suit. It frames the body perfectly, and creates a nice upward visual flow (peak lapels). This man should be a spokesperson for young people wearing double breasted suits!(why do we shy away from them?)
December 8, 2006 at 12:24 am
Bigger photo please! Oliver always looks dashing.
December 8, 2006 at 12:26 am
Is this the Domenico Vacca guy?
December 8, 2006 at 12:27 am
this man has his serious New York streets walk down to a T. With the shopping bag in his hand, it looks like he is walking down a DV catwalk instead of a city street.
December 8, 2006 at 12:28 am
one of the most modern versions of a double-breasted suit that i have seen in daily life. good catch.
December 8, 2006 at 1:08 am
Impeccable! It’s not the first time that this guy is on this blog and even that time he looked spot-on. I think double-breasted suits are generally harder to pull of but on him it really looks effortless. Good tailoring obviously helps, but he looks great.
Am I the only one who also caught more than a glimpse of the guy wearing a caramel leather jacket in the background? I love that jacket, and his partner in the sunglasses also looks quite interesting- very nice mobile style indeed Sart.
December 8, 2006 at 1:22 am
Almost unfair this guy can dress so varied and well that he gets routinely featured on these pages. Does the shop he works in pay him so handsomely that he can buy their product – or is it provided to him? If so, hats off, because he may have one extremely privileged position. I keep believing that only the very savviest and wealthiest of men have the means and wherewithal to dress so…dare I say, highly. I’m not discounting the folks featured here that make style work with pieces that may have been salvaged or bought for a steal – man, I do that. But the material, the workmanship, and the attention to tailoring detail on this guy just screams $$$$. The rest of us have to be like Jude’s Alfie and blow a paycheck on one premium piece at a time. Guy in the DB suit (which is not my thing, but hey): if you’re reading this, count your lucky stars.
December 8, 2006 at 1:46 am
he looks like a model.
December 8, 2006 at 2:08 am
This man exudes confidence. In addition to his impeccably tailored double-breasted suit, pocket-square and all, his posture is his key element.
December 8, 2006 at 2:13 am
December 8, 2006 at 3:41 am
Another great photo!I’ve seen some of your other photos of this gentleman and find and have found him very stylish!
December 8, 2006 at 4:27 am
Personally, I like more the man in the backround, with the leather coat :)
December 8, 2006 at 6:45 am
nothing special that i can see.
December 8, 2006 at 6:52 am
He looks a bit cold!
December 8, 2006 at 6:53 am
i’m not sure he has style, at least not concerning his way of walking…he seams so stiff
December 8, 2006 at 7:04 am
The days when you had to be either a banker or a mob member to wear this kind of suit are definitively over ! Looks AM-AZ-ING !

December 8, 2006 at 7:27 am
I don’t generally like double-breasted coats, but his is so well tailored!
December 8, 2006 at 7:44 am
This is the guy from Dominico Vacca?He is the defenition of masculine style.Every time you photograph him, he looks amazing.One of the Sartorialist style icons, for sure!
December 8, 2006 at 7:53 am
Elegant and classic, a look that always tops my list!…however, despite his slim physique, the jacket appears to be a bit snug in the midsection…
December 8, 2006 at 8:04 am
December 8, 2006 at 9:34 am
nice….but it would be nice to get away from 5th ave for a change of pace…
December 8, 2006 at 10:03 am
this picture is quintessential NY. Very impressive shot.
I’ll be one of the first to purchase your book–hoping that it is full of these types of great photos :-)
December 8, 2006 at 10:29 am
when I see this level of attention I think of only one thing- this guy works in a menswear store.
December 8, 2006 at 10:39 am
Wonderful shot.Looks like a picture captured from a film…
December 8, 2006 at 10:52 am
Too conservative for my taste. Needs a touch of colour or something else to modernize it except the hairdo. Maybe no tie?
December 8, 2006 at 11:59 am
It’s the first, and likely only time, I’ll ever like the look of a double-breasted suit on a man.
December 8, 2006 at 12:54 pm
Perfect example that double breasted not only means 50 years or older.Great shot !
December 8, 2006 at 1:08 pm
Isn’t this Oliver Gerona, the manager of the Domenico Vacca store on Fifth Avenue?
December 8, 2006 at 2:18 pm
yes yes Oliver very handsome…
December 8, 2006 at 2:50 pm
December 8, 2006 at 3:22 pm
great, great photo! like a movie still!!
December 8, 2006 at 6:30 pm
At first the young man in the very well-fitting suit caught my eye, but I am equally impressed with the my man in the leather jacket. It looks as if he has on black gloves with a brown jacket and a grey scarf. Not colors that I would have put together, but I like it here.
December 8, 2006 at 7:39 pm
He looks familiar, have you shot him before? is he avoiding your lens or trying not to be too obvious?perfect fitting suit – great colour too.
December 8, 2006 at 9:52 pm
classic-ish but heavy on the hairgel.
December 8, 2006 at 11:31 pm
It’s his exotic good looks contrasted with the perfect Italian tailoring, that I love. Def works in the mens fashion world.
December 9, 2006 at 1:40 pm
one word: Yumy!
December 9, 2006 at 9:40 pm
He looks fantastic. Classic.
December 11, 2006 at 11:41 pm
That is so F***ing COOL! I Know the Guy in the Orange coat! I’d know him anywhere with that coat, scarf, and stature… Went to college w/him.. he’s a brilliant graphic artist from St.Louis, and that blonde woman walking with him is his wife (of 2 years) from Germany! Wow!!!
Oh Yeah.. & the main guy in the shot is looking extremely dapper.No doubt… :-)
December 12, 2006 at 1:42 pm
the more I look at this picture, the more I want to wear what the guy in the background is wearing … great!!
Mr. Suit is pretty cool too. I don’t own a DB suit but used to; it was cut with a lower V which annoyed me as my tie would flop out whenever I bent over (which is why I loved that 3-button suits came into fashion then … I guess that means that, yes, we’re talking 90s here).
I’ve not really seen too many DB suits available, and wondered what that was all about … and given the number of comments here from people who seem alergic to the DB, I guess it’s more unpopular than I thought. I’d love to get a couple DBs to mix things up, provided the buttons are high enough to prevent the aforementioned tie-flop (not a big fan of the tie clip, BTW) … hopefully this photo will bring a few people around to liking the DB, even if it means messing with that annoying inside backwards button.
December 13, 2006 at 10:38 am
Someone earlier in the thread commented that they had seen this fellow before in another photo. I just found him in the previous month’s archives, still looking very stylish:
He has an excellent cut on the suit, and wears the knot on the collar really well. The smaller knots exposing more of the tie around the neck really kills the image of these styles of shirt for me; glad to see him pull it off nicely.
December 9, 2013 at 5:33 pm
Right on target! Great DB…all of the proportions are great.
He’s actually not wearing a Windsor knot (prob double four-in-hand) which makes it all even more refreshing.
