On the Street…..Blue & Right, Manhattan


At this moment in time, I love wearing almost this exact look when I am going to any kind of party or event in the Spring/Summer.

A well-cut blue suit, crisp white shirt and some type of loafer (in brown) can create a look that is just dressy enough and just casual enough for almost any occasion.

I have tried the same look with a blue shirt but it loses the crisp contrast of navy/white and doesn’t create as much of a “finished” look.

A black suit/white shirt combination seems a little too formal and a bit cliche.

I keep the look interesting for myself by changing the model and fabric of the shirt – maybe a linen spread collar, maybe a cotton button-down, or maybe a mercerized cotton polo. I also like to change the shape and fabric of the pocket square but I avoid making my choice of pocket square a focus of conversation (that’s a whole separate post).

    I’m just fascinated by this man. Not only he’s got the perfect look to me, but also the longer you look at the picture the more you ask youself the Monal Lisa question: Does he have a sublte smile in his face or does he have a very sad look in his eyes?
    I would comfort him ;-)
    Thanks Sart for the Pic. I’d whish one would actually meet this type of men.

    This is my favorite men’s shot. I love the suit worn casually with loafers, no socks and all!

    This pic has me out looking for a blue suit.

    I find the look so refreshingly 'Denver' – the embroidered jacket, busy light necklace, bag left seductively open. Great how you managed to maintain an ethereal quality by not showing her face. Who is she? What is she writing? Why is the unshaven guy on her right neglecting her?

    I like that he chose brown loafers and not black shoes. It gives his outfit a casual look. The pocket square gives it a touch of elegance and the no socks says, “This is my house!”.
