Not only the colors but the whole persona is exquisite. His hair, accessories, gestures achieve a level of harmony that only spells a very interesting personality. My favorite fashion report from your keen aye so far. This is an example of the America that – in my opinion, and in a few cases- is beyond “stylish” capitals : a perfect shift from convention to transgression. A beautiful emancipation.
Seersucker has it’s critics, but a good seersucker is functional and the quintessential summer wardrob staple as far as I’m concerned. In this case the cut and pattern is istinguished and fun all rolled into one.
Dazzling! The play, as it were, of signifiers across the purple and the little coke-bottle-looking glasses and the hair and the rings and the light-colored suit–very clever. He looks like he belongs in a novel–an alternate and more interesting reality.
No doubt that this guy is probably one of the best pictures I’ve seen on this blog so far. The seersucker suit, the purple, the hair, glasses, it all works. You get the sense that even the bling was put there on purpose, perhaps to continue the whole contrast of the different aspects of the look. Good one man…
That’s the way to go for summer. Seersucker rocks. With the right details it looks very modern. Look at the gentleman from a couple of weeks ago, pulling a seersucker combination in green. With this outfit the purple really makes it work. Very dapper !
Ehhh… want so bad to like it, but doesn’t really work for reasons already cited– for me, that would be mostly- combining dressy shirt/accessories with a casual suit. It can be done, but this isn’t how. Too much jewelry and I don’t think the jacket fits either. Could be the angle, but I used to sell clothing, so should know a little something…
He looks very very British, IMHO (except the bling.) He pulls the look together, though- it takes someone of outstanding character to pull this off. He could easily be a weirdo dressed with the same haircut and bling in a baggy t-shirt and jeans but instead he dons this outfit. Brilliant!
seersucker works on this guy, but it definitely is not a universally flattering fabric on men — especially on the bottom half of the body. i saw a man in chelsea the other day wearing a polo shirt and seersucker pants. the pants only served to silhouette the gigundo thingaling he was packing there. it was way too distracting and actually kind of vulgar — the equivalent of a DD woman wearing a low-cut tank top.
