The way he pulls off that golden short tie is very much…what one would expect of Ann’s father. Her clothes have a subtle twist and poetical beauty within the consistency of her monotone work. I wonder if he was influenced by her or if she was influenced by him.
although I agree the neckwear is too short, think I would find it assuming if the whinning about the short tie was from the same “critics” who are giving a standing ovation to the T.Brown look ankle pants, schoolboy length jackets….
There’s a young gentleman who works on the same block as I who always wears his ties super short — like cartoonishly short — and I think it’s fantastic. It’s a great trademark he’s created for hiimself. Everything else is always cut perfectly, so he always looks great. Wish you’d find and photograph him, one day.
It is lovely that Ms. Demeulemeester has the support of her father, who is obviously dressed for the occasion of supporting his daughter. It is also lovely that he does not appear to have been “dressed” by anyone else, but rather used his own sensibility to pull together what is appropriate for the day and the event. A good dad and a gentleman…
where do we draw the line at obsessive compulsive disorder, and the ability to just respect an otherwise good looking gent?
I could understand if there was something so outlandishly out of proportion with his garments that it stood out like a red elephant, but generally, most people wear their clothes someplace other than to and from their tailors. They live in them, sometimes for 15 or more years, and well… things tend to happen to the human body in that time.
I think this guy looks great, his clothes don’t show his age necessarily, but help tell his story.
Sart, have you considered disabling the comment function?
