    Is the tie tucked in a Trad move? I like the brown shoes / grey suit look.

    High rise trousers with no belt, that’s bad enough. But tucking your tie into your pants? That just doesn’t look good, any way you slice it.

    My only comment is I’m not a fan of flats with tight to the ankle pants.

    Personally, I would prefer the tie tucked into the pants over a tie hanging down by the crotch.
    I have high-rise pants, and if I want to pair them with a modern tie (which is usually way too long), I usually have to tuck the tie into the pants in order to get a cleaner line.

    this guy has style and the girlfriend is cute. he’s wearing suspenders and that’s why you don’t see a belt. the lenght of the pants is right but we americans are not use to that. we want multiple breaks as if we will grow another 12 inches or we borrowed our dad’s or older brother’s pants. i think he’s wearing a thom browne suit which is designed to be high waters but the lenght of his pants is more like how europeans wear their pants. if you want the proper lenght check out Mory or Luciano Barberra, they both wear it clean.

    well the lapel and pants are my clues. the suit looks new and thom browne is the last designer who introduced it last year. this was the style in 60′s and my dad wore this style. but before thom browne zegna brought this out 7 years ago.

    being stylist and creative go hand in hand and as i said before he has style. he did the right thing by tucking his nectie. but for me i will stick with my seven fold tie and knot as what italians call “corto e grosso” (short and fat). seven folds would not work for his shirt and jacket because it would be out of balance.

    I’m not opposed to Thom Browne suits by any means, but this doesn’t work. The trouser taper does Mr Miller no favors. And for some reason I thought TB suit trousers had lower rises.

    i think americans got use to wearing their pants low rise even though they are not made that way so long as their underwear is showing. wearing high waisted is much better the way fred astaire wore his pants but not too high that you end up looking like steve erkel. i give thom browne credit for being bold and i hope the rest of american designers will follow his lead. the “hip hop style” is a strong force but it can be defeated.

    as well…The sans-a-belt look is a tough one to do…it’s another signature TB move, right up there with the highly debated “label” and the unbuttoned oxford collar(which I believe you can just make out in the picture). Though DM always wears his TB with great personal style. DM’s girlfriend holds her own quite well..but has a little competition.

    I look forward to DM’s Barker Black menswear collection…any word on that?

    The tapered pants aren’t really flattering (it’s clear that the guy is in fine shape, but the super slim ankles make the torso look wide), but bravo on the high-rise pants with suspenders and the color combination.

    This is probably the first time ever that I think a Thom Browne suit works well – in my, admittedly fairly conservative views the the usual “high tide” trouser lengths look is simply ridiculous, like pretending to be a public school boy grown out of his trousers. This suit, however, has a very nice air of 1960s British style, a good mix between plain traditional and quirky. I don’t fancy the “tucked-in tie” style for myself but I would argue that this is much rather an individual quirk, not a fashion “fauxpas”…

    I like it. The trouser length is perfect and he looks better in Browne’s suit than Browne himself (in your other photo).

    A suit and tie on a Sunday afternoon ?
    Is this your fault??? All these people you cover are scared you might find them looking not very “Sartorial” even on a Sunday. I had a look on your site and have rarely seen any thing but “Sartspin”. Hand felled under collar and tailor’s hands ??? Will you ever get serious? I do like you street shots! But all that made in Italy product looks cheap even when it isn’t. Some fancy finishing flashy color ! BINGO “Sartspin”. Having said that I do enjoy your contribution . .
