    There are not enough superlatives to describe this look. Edward the Duke of Windsor would copy this; it is so good, smart, and innovative. Eye-catching and yet understated at the same time. Brilliant! Who is this elegant man? He is my new sartorial hero. I LOVE and lust after his "crocodile" bag.

    this man is the ultimate fusion of my favorite uncle and my favorite history teacher.
    is that a magazine clutch? fearless, indeed! MK could have a run for her public association to the iconic piece.

    What's so great about this look, besides the combinations of texture and pattern, is that it is truly timeless. It is, as someone pointed out, something the duke of windsor would have tried out, because it would have looked good then, it looks good now, and it will look good fifty years from now. Modern, yet timeless.

    I love how he is able to wear stripes and plaid simultaneously and still manages to pull it off without a hitch. Were I male I'd certainly copy this look as well (and I may anyway)!

    He artfully blends the stripe and the plaid and the pocket square. Love it!

    Thanks, Sart! I recently bought a windowpane jacket similar to this and I've been a little perplexed about what to pair it with other than the Italian background of a dark blue tie and light blue shirt. I'll definitely try this.

    Can't wait to see the other best-ofs in the series.

    Definately a look to pinch, the opposing prints work realy well due to the colour palate, and that is one fabulous man bag!

    I'm not even a man, but I love that jacket so much, I'm sure I could work it somehow.

    What a beautiful website, It's ideas like these that keep me coming back every day.

    Generally find stripes/seersucker a bit passe, but it takes on a whole new gusto when partnered with plump plaid.

    This is a breathe of fresh air, and looks even more scintillating on a female. Nice find.

    I'm a girl and I always wish I could wear guy clothes. Men's neat tailoring is something that is unbeatable. And girl looks rarely ever look as coherent and simple but amazing like this. Maybe it's just my style, but when I'm designing I plan to make exact copies of the same clothing for both guys and girls so no one misses out.

    A very 1960's look. In fact, this look is very much like one in a photo of your late father.

    Great look. Have you noticed how high his sleeve buttons are? do you think that's the style, or that his tailor forgot to put them back on once he'd shortened the sleeve? With style like that, you'd hope he didn't miss it!

    The air this man and the photo exude is just great. Love the subtlety of his colour palette – the palest of lilac on his pocket scarf and the shades of green elsewhere.

    MY God…that is amazing. Even with the mixing of patterns, nothing looks forced. It took me a second to actually take in the individual pieces because it's really just a coherent look.
