Robert has yet to fail in my eyes. DB jacket and super-casual mode are not usually spoken in the same breath, but here he is doing it and looking good and blown up 400% I can see that yes, he’s wearing an ascot! I love it.
The whole point of DB is looking more formal, so that is one point off. Casual DB jackets is what ruined it in the late 70s and 80s. The whole shape is wrong here. I don’t like looking like a carrot and I think neither would most men out there. Another point off. The good tailoring of the pieces and the colour combinations are great though.
I saw an excellent 70′s Navy issue Peacoat at a vintage shop, here in Baton Rouge. It was in great condition and was actually fitted, around the waist. But, the sleeves were huge – not in length, but girth. It was $120, but I just couldn’t justify spending that much on something that would make me feel so much like Robin Williams in Popeye.
I like the color combination and the shape of the jacket. However, I think the tapered trousers make him look pear shaped, a slightly wider leg might be more flattering. The worn in shoes and the glasses are perfection.
The loose fit of the DB would only pair well, IMHO, with slim pants such as the ones he is wearing; otherwise, the effect would be an additional 20 lbs on your frame. It is sort of like a fitness model wearing big things just because they can- it doesn’t mean the rest of us should!!! Was this picture staged? Is the guy actually standing in “the box” in the front of idling traffic??? Jorge from W Palm Beach
Nope…coarsh wool finish of the jacket with smooth polished finished cotton pants?…that will never do! Jacket on its own is great as are the pants. I would have worn a tartan plaid pair of pants (same cut)with a bright shirt. Take better care of those shoes and put some socks on! Sockless is not always a fashion forward appearance.
Something’s always irritated me about some of these shots that pop up from time to time: It’s not the quality of the shot really– your compositions are always great. I am really irritated by the fact that some of these individuals insist on posing with their mobile. Please put the mobile away for the brief moment you’re being immortalized by the Sartorialist!
Having said that, Robert looks awesome. Very classic mod.
Not Thom Browne-short but just short enough to make the shape of the legs perfect and avoid the trousers to cover the entire shoe. To bad most men are scared to death to wear their trousers even a little shorter then “normal”
Same goes for size..why does especialy you Americans insist on wearing your suit at least one size to large? Maybe this isnÂ´t the right place to complain, almost every American man shoot by Scott Schuman have a great sense of style..
