    Very nice navy pinstriped suit–with tie rampant.

    Most excellent. Very simple, no pocket square, looks like straight cuff shirt too.

    What makes the outfit? It’s all around the neck.

    The high, well fitted collar and the large knot that fills the gap perfectly. The undimpled kink under the knot is a wonderful touch that complements the collar.

    Finally, that little flip of hair above his left ear is most excellent too.

    I first saw this photo and thought – hm, English because of the colour and the hair, but actually the more I look at it, the more I lean towards Italian. Pretty high notch on the lapel and the prominent collar hints at Italian. Jetted pockets on the jacket are a nice touch, don’t think I could put that down specifically to English or Italian tailoring though.

    Absolute perfection…,the shoulders,the length of the jacket and sleeves,the way the pin stripe flows from the shoulder onto the sleeve,and ofcourse this gentleman is so gorgeous,so sophisticated and so international,there is nothing more to say other than….sublime!!!

    A beautiful chalk stripe suit in a splendid light blue tonality, that is very difficult to find as fabric : many features of fine neapolitan tailoring are present in the jacket including high notch lapels and the “manica a camicia”.There is also an appreciable attempt to find novel combinations with the tie but in my opinion the grey color of the latter should have been more vivid and bright.
    Globally the sensations ,stimulated by the elegance of this gentleman, are very pleasant.

    Maybe it’s his stance that makes him and his outfit rigid.
    A smile can light up an outfit.

    I love that the stripes end at an angle on the sleeves.

    (I have no idea if this is normal or not, but it did catch my eye!)

    Nice, really nice. Well cut suit, natural elegance and a certain arrogance in the expression that matches the rest.
    I wantto project THAT when I grow up.

    A well put-together suit. It’s nice to see the basics done so well.

    What a perfect tie knot. And the hair is the topper!

    So much value is added by enlarging the picture. Initially he just looks like a very self-assured man and very little else. But upon closer inspection, one notices the angular stripes on the sleeves, already mentioned, and the fantastic action at the neck: perfect knot, lovely shirt collar and the clincher for me, the fabric of the suit. I would say it is fine, but still heavy wool. It is lovely. If someone has any other ideas, I’d be happy to hear them

    Great photo overall. The background has color and depth that are enhancing his overall color scheme beautifully.

    One thing, though. Call me old fashioned, but I think he could step his look up a notch with a simple, single dimple in his tie. Anymore, is this not the rage?

    Wonderful. The fabric is beautiful. The cut of his hair matches the cut of his suit, I think. Though I don’t see how this is manica a camicia, doesn’t look like it to me (also, that construction is not normally used for town suitings). The tie is great too-to go with or without dimple is a matter of personal preference, one is not more correct than the other, and going without dimple has worked well for him here. I think we can assume it is Attolini, and so yes, it took a long time to make… much more than 24 hours I would think.
