    Dig his brown-centrism, and the brown-gray meld.

    Not crazy, though, about the built and built-out jacket shoulders nor the pants length, which would be too long even if the current mode didn’t endorse shorter trousers…

    A very handsome man and a wonderfully fitting shirt and jacket. Accessories (pocket square) look great. Shoes go perfectly with the jacket color. Bravo!

    Very nice. I’m trying to figure out what colour those trousers are. I think a dark olive, grey or black would work with this outfit and from the picture, it looks like it could be any of those colours.

    Hi, just so you know that I was the person who left you that note about the English Cut blog by Thomas Mahon. It wasn’t Thomas himself trying to appear “anon” in order to advertise himself. In case you thought it was.

    Wow. Looks like it’s time for me to get a few 2-button jackets. Incredible fit and incredible look.

    Also love the glasses — perfect. Too bad I have perfect eyes. Would getting fashion frames be too pretentious? ;)

    A beautifully bespectacled specimen. And yes, there are shades of Clark Kent in there, too.

    My fav parts (outside of the specs)? Pocket square thingie and the shoes.

    Impeccable. The eyewear is what really seals the deal.

    i’m trying to see it, but aside from the great fit and quality of the clothing, i’m just missing whatever it is that is so apparent to the rest of you. obviously, i’m the one who’s missing the point, but i would probably pass right by this man without a second glance. well, unless he was wearing a great scent — maybe i spend too much time with my dogs, but sometimes the nose knows best ;-)

    His simplistic minimalism is what makes the look so good. Everything has the perfect proportions and the subtlety of his fit makes it stand out for me. I’d definitely notice him if I saw him about.

    Those trousers are black, right? I’ve seen a lot of black with brown and khaki lately. It’s becoming a look that I could get used too. The only question that I have is, wouldn’t a lighter shade of brown shoe worked better here?

    Otherwise, the fit is commendable.

    I think his trousers are a bit long. They shouldn’t be Thom Browne-short, but still. A little shorter would make it perfik!
