I am really considering buying a double breasted suit, after seeing how good they can look when they fit correctly. Years of seeing uncles in horribly fitted db’s at weddings scarred me. However, Sart has shown me otherwise!
Good looking guy. Nice suit, even if it’s a bit too matchy-matchy for my taste. Nicely put together, but the fit seems a bit awkward. It looks like this magnificent man doesn’t have quite enough room to breathe.
The outfit and the pic are beyond, any doubt, superlative! But going back and referencing the gentleman from Italy,Marcelo, I believe we should distinguish panache from elegance. You see,one doesnt’t preclude the other; you could say they’re mutually exclusive. For example, the gentleman displayed on this picture. There is not doubt his outfit is elegant, etc.. but he lacks panache thus the outcome could be interpreted as inelegant. You put that suit on L. Barbera and you have the embodiment of elegance. The old axiom my boy ” the person makes the clothes not the other way around.”- AFA/JR
This outfit destroys. Here’s to men looking like men and not over-stimulated toddlers. To me, this look is still fun, while staying masculine and sharp. A double-breasted suit that fits this well must have cost a pretty penny though.
This guy is the S*** I have to say, I went to Bryant Park, because I was at Tracy Reese, and I have to say there were a range of levels of attire – from completely uptight and overly restricted, to polished, chic yet comfortable, and then dressed down-chic. The range as I said really surprised me in a good way. I myself wore levi’s with a Cynthia Rowley black dress on top and a MJ bag with Banana Republic patent black peep-toe flats. Everyone was laid back in their attitudes, nobody looked down on anyone. It defied all the media hype really…
I love this picture. The one thing I dislike is the attention he has drawn to the working cuff of this blazer. He has made it so obvious that he wanted the cuff to be noticed so much so that it no longer looks subtle – it looks a bit too thought out now. I’m not sure if anyone else spotted that but the magic is in the details. But then again this gent wanted to be noticed – hence the turn ups in the trousers also.
I do like the shoes, but it would have been nice to see what colour socks were worn…I suspect navy!
