    Great photo. This is standard polo player attire. I’m thinking of pulling the trigger on a polo shirt at Polistas or La Martina later this month.

    When I attended polo matches at Guards and Greenwich, the typical polo spectator uniform (for men) seemed to be blazer (or lightweight sports jacket), chinos, open necked dress shirt, and loafers. Standards today seem to have devolved a little.

    Nice layout at I see Kirk Miller of Barker Black is wearing his famous pink shirt again.

    I went to the Polo match 2 weekends ago while in the Hamptons and I couldn’t believe how well dressed and stylish everyone was. There was so much to look at including Nacho. He’s so beautiful! You couldn’t take your eyes off of him!

    Great photo. I always drool over polo players (either the horse variety or the water one, LOL). The equestrian style is always great to look at. And it shows from the fact that a polo sport clothing store opened in Greece (Mykonos I think?) when barely a handful of Greeks have even heard of the game, let alone play any.

    Golf Magazine of all places has a great section this month on the evolution of golf attire over the last 100 years. From tweeds and shirts and ties to high tech mock turtle necks. Many good photos. The picture of Arnold Palmer from the 50′s will have the trads drooling. Worth a look.

    Ignacio “Nacho” Figueras is probably the most good looking polo player since Adolfo Cambiasso.
    His wife is also beautiful (Delfina Blaquier) and they have two kids I believe…
    Ralph Lauren was right on target when choosing him for his ads.

    Is that the church on Park Ave. & 85th Street? I’d bet anything it is.

    Interesting how the bespoke single breasted suits frequently have the peaked lapel to show they are custom made.

    He looks great, of course. Nice silhouette and very tailored. Disagree with comment on having the suit pressed. Maybe steamed, but not pressed. Kills the fabric, doncha know.

    Nacho (was he named after the snack food?) looks great in his polo rig, but he–or his tailor–needs to refigure his suit jacket, I’d say.

    To wit, the sleeves are too narrow, thus causing serious wrinkling, and the garment itself is a mite too short.

    But you wouldn’t push him off his steed, would you?

    impeccable. although standards have relaxed, I rather enjoy the current look of ‘contemporary relaxed cool’ we are enjoying. And let’s be fair, several years ago sport coats were no where to be found, so the revival of formality and pride in menswear is quite refreshing.

    Nacho is the nick name for Ignacio. Yeah, there’s a food dish with the same name, but pleease, get your spanish facts right -reductive logic is so passe-. Nacho embodies a type, that is like the pinnacle of style regardless of the cut of the suit.

    again, i question the sartorial inspiration.
    i think the majority of the comments you received from this photo kinda sum up why i question.
    so i ask the question again: are you suggesting that natural born good looks equate good sartorial style (or as you say “inspiration”)?

  74. Matty

    August 25, 2007 at 4:20 pm

    gorgeous. why does his jacket look like it needs to be taken in a couple inches? one would assume the RL tailors keep him looking taut and trim…

    The suit is wrinkled because its linen and does not need to be pressed (thats what linen does). Its actually a Purple Label suit from the summer collection and NOT bespoke. The shirt and tie is a bit too trendy but he looks 9 times better then the average american.

    On another note, the polo rugby stuff is so ugly and overbranded.

    He looks more at home wearing his polo outfit. It’s a shame that his suit is a touch on the small side for his athletic stature. He still makes me feel less of a man though.

    I see fashion as part of the whole culture. For those who think the world starts at N.Y. and ends at L.A., U.S.A.(nothing against) and it pop culture is not the reference for all, Nacho is a short version of the very popular spanish name Ignacio(Italian Ignazio), also the name of the Jesuit order(Or the Society of Jesus) founder Saint Ignatius Loyola.

    There’s something wrong with the suit, imo. Makes his shoulders look narrow and his hips wide. The polo uniform pic look is much better – narrows his waist and widens his shoulders.

    The suit is nice, but it would be nicer on someone else.

    I’m going insane reading some of these comments—the linen suit fits him perfectly, people. So European, so chic, and so-oooo appreciated as it is molded perfectly to his frame, even though it’s off-the-rack, with that sexy linen-crumpling that merits several second glances. Also, there’s that slight sheen to the fabric that also highlights the beauty of one’s of nature’s best creations. The guy wearing it is pretty okay, too!
