that guy is seriously squared away. very nicely done. the pant length, the shoes…nice. but i have a question. what makes his shoulders and sleeves wrinkle so much? some would be expected, it seems like a deconstructed sleeve. is it supposed to look like that. it doesn’t take away from his look, but its odd.
Any tighter, he would look like a lollipop! This guy is dressed so well- he has that perfect V from the shoulder to the waist, which is mirrored again from the hip to the shoes. Just perfect! He knows exactly what works for him.
Very, very nice. If I remember correctly, this man gets his sportcoats custom made in Italy (was it Milan?). Judging from the shoulders, I think this suit is also a custom piece. I really wish I could see what was on his tie (looks like horses mabye?). He looks like a high-class southern Italian.
I like the look of this geezer – he’s a big man who looks like he uses those Swedish hipsters as toothpicks. However, I’m British and don’t understand your fanciful use of my language – can someone please translate what “BFMan” means. Many thanks. MARK.
wow. i read about your blog in a magazine here in singapore. :) i really loved your street snaps. i’m going to be living in new york come fall. i wish i had taken more street photos in tokyo where i used to live. but your photos here were really inspiring. i drew a new outfit design after looking at them! hopefully i’d be even more inspired when i start living in new york myself. cheers!
IMHO — jacket sleeves are too small; they should fall, not cling. But I don’t mind the pants length or width; they are consistent with the classical look he has going on overall. And I don’t know what BFMan means either (and I’m from NYC, where we really know English).
As others have said, he looks nice. It really is good to see someone who is actually well dressed.
It isn’t necessarily the style, but slightly longer lapels and a lower button stance would probably go nicer with his physique – it might not be the “fashion” of the moment, but would suit him nicely. I’d like to see his pant length just a tad shorter – think that is what is messing with their line.
william, I think the wrinkles on his jacket are just that he has a very lightweight wool on them. While nice they sometimes don’t lay as nicely as a heavier, less sleek wool.
I straight as a arrow, just to make things clear…but this guy looks freaking great. Not a flaw on him. I’m not saying that he shouldn’t lose some weight and too bad he doesn’t have more hair, but he perfectly exemplifies the attitude of doing the best you can with what you have. Fashion mads are filled with retouched airbrushes mindless morons dressed by pros. This guy is real (not a model I’d guess), dressed himself (I assume), and frankly did a f-ing amazing job at it. Shirt, tie, pocket square, pinkie ring, suit, shoes, haircut, glasses, etc. If you’re reading this, just know that looking like that you could be poor as a bum, but you could walk onto a Monaco yacht and everyone would think you owned it.
