That is a fantastic suit.
I worked in men’s retail for many years, and young guys always wanted their suits to HANG on them. Blazers too big, pants sagging, it was frustrating. I wanted to grab them by the shoulders and say “NO! You’re beautiful, and the suit is beautiful, why are trying to so hard to make both ugly!”
Iâ€™m not buying the way those sleeves fit…they arenâ€™t narrow enough – they seem to too wide in the elbow area… but the shoulders are sharp as is the length and overall rest of the proportions.
Would have loved to see the trousers also.
Yes, a beautiful cut, but it’s a very Italian cut, isn’t it? We see it often on older men on The Sartorialist: a shorter length, and fitted to within a whisker of that lovely torso. I don’t think an English tailor would make such a point of revealing and defining the shape of the body, even though of course they are masters of cut.
And Flam, I agree, those eyes say a lot. But that’s what’s so good about The Sartorialist’s subjects: they often seem to be gorgeous people and often gentle and nice looking… gentlemen and ladies.
Superb fit with the double breast and wider set buttons at the top leading into the slightly wider lapel. Impeccable silhouette.
You are masterful in capturing this sartorial moment. Thank you very much for sharing and I cannot wait for the next book! I am still hoping to run into you one day so I can get is signed!
Love the layering and the more casual white shirt underneath, very modern way of wearing such suit. Would have loved to see the shoes! Just read on how Kiton ages its leather before making the shoe, fascinating process.
If men were to be less lenient on fashion trends in North America, I think we could wear this. In this day in age, its very hard to find, not only a double breasted suit, but one with such beautiful wide lapels. Fashion of course, comes at a cost, and you’re only finding this at higher end stores.
Yes you are right Scott, he looks devine in his double breasted suit. And speaking of gorgeous young men in suits – what do you think of Eddie Redmayne in the Burberry campaign? He looks the business in the Testino shots, don’t you think? Swoon!!! B
Great suit, but still think it could use a trimming. Love the double breast. Currently looking for the perfect one myself. However if you want to see how a suit should fit a young man look no further than Matt Bomer on the show WHITE COLLAR
he’s too skinny for a double breasted suit. also, the lapels are too big, sleeves too short and the top buttons are way too far apart. also, I don’t understand what the buttons on the sleeves are doing so far up.
The lapels are way too large, the left sleeve looks too long, and it is not as slim as the body of the suit is (that is availble for both of the sleeves), it doesn’t have vents so it looks kinda awkward… I can’t see the pants but i think that they are a little bit too long .
I beg to differ. His relaxed left arm shows clearly that the jacket sleeves are slightly long. His shirt should show at least 1/4 inch off cuff.
Also, NEVER wear a double-breasted without neckwear and wearing peaked lapels without a pocket square is tacky.
For all of those saying you “never” wear a suit without a tie or he “shouldn’t” be wearing a double breasted suit or he “should” be wearing a pocket square… put your fashion “rule book” away. If you can pull it off (like this young man clearly can), then its okay. Thats the beauty of fashion – we are all allowed to interpret things differently.
…Of course, the only thing slightly less negotiable is the fact that this indeed is a well cut suit, and all men – regardless of height and build – look fantastic in a well cut suit that is tailored to their body.
wow. notice the neopolitan shoulder on the suit. funny how very traditional tailoring is looking avante guarde right now. I am not a fan of the shirt collar, cardigan or hair but this fellow’s suit fits properly no doubt. Me/ i wold do a cutaway collar and a tie and obviously a pocket square but its great nevertheless how he is making partonopea look like jil sander wants to.. obviously a very dope suit, in a nutshell
one of the myths about suits is that “its only the jacket that should fit perfectly to have that WOW effect”…however, if the trousers are loose, or the fly is high, or too low, or even if the length is even an inch longer than what it should be, it ruins the overall look…..the devil is in the details
This is why there is so much concern about the “feminizing of America”. This tight, form fitting suit looks more suited for a woman’s figure not a MAN’S! Soon men will be wearing tight knit sweaters and then skirts!
