Why is that collar up?! I suppose that’s the only reason Sart took his picture, but for goodness sake, it doesn’t work, he looks like the nerdy kid (red hair and freckles) in the gangster movies circa 1932. I don’t like.
As with the photo of Stephano Tonchi earlier, I’m noticing quite long jacket sleeves, practically to the knuckles. It seems to contribute to the long, lean look. Is this a trend, or just these two photos, or my imagination? – JCH
P.S. – Why is it that an upturned collar is so dramatic? It just is.
JCH has it right, the extra long sleeves are beautiful in the way they make everything look longer and leaner. They make it unlikely the jacket can be worn formally but I think it looks gorgeous this way.
Collar up against the elements? He is outside after all. One must have fun with their clothes somehow right? Enforced orthodoxy is terribly boring.
oh. that IS a popped collar. i was much happier when i thought it was a scarf. love everything else, though. and i definitely approve of the sleeve length. it’s fresh. so long as you don’t mind all the polite suggestions of good tailors…
that’s his tall boyfriend’s jacket, that’s why the sleeves are too long. He just gave him a blowjob; boyfriend was so satisfied he messed up the kid’s hair! Jacket is upturned because he’s out cold looking for a cigarette.
The jacket length is perfect. Unless you’re wearing a tux, or working in a boardroom, it isn’t necessary to show that inch of shirt anymore. Shorter sleeves makes you look like, well… like you’re wearing a tux or working in a boardroom! It’s stuffy, and old-fashioned. I’ve been wearing longer sleeves for years – same length as the shirt – and my tailor is A-OK with it. It’s more relaxed, and creates a longer, slimmer line.
