I love this photo. His glasses are perfect. I like that you only get a peek at the red socks when he sits down…so no, not too matchy-matchy. The monochrome suit/shirt work really well together and the desert boots are just cool.
some of the things i really like about this look: 1. he makes a red flower boutonniere look masculine. 2. the contrast of the red socks and the beautiful brown shoes. 3. that i barely noticed that he had a polo on under the suit (ideally, i would have him wear a different shirt, but it doesn’t distract from the rest of the outfit here)
Not all the shots came interesting.In my opinion this is one of those. The gentlman has something of “clownwesque” and is too much overstated ; even the flower at the boutonniere seems to be made by plastic.
As soon as I glanced at this picture, I thought that he did a great job matching the boutonniere with his socks. But the more I study this chap, the more that I feel that it was not his intention to match the two. It just happened. So no, I don’t think that he’s too “put together”. I think that he just has a nice personal style that so happened to gel well within itself.
He’s great–looks like himself at fashion week. But I am really tired of the self-righteousness of the anti-smokers. He’s outside for heavens sake! Chill! He’s not blowing smoke at your dinner, into the crib of the baby, or in your apartment.
