I can't remember his name, but I've never seen a bad picture of him. He looks sensational. Extraordinary eyes. It's a restrained look, but there's so much detail to interest. Lovely movement and image.
Come on. If it weren't Rubincci or a photo on this blog, you'd think "nice jacket, nice shirt, but what's with that tie and pocket square." The combo isn't doing it for me; actually, I think it looks pretty bad. The jacket is nice, but I disagree that it fits him perfectly — looks a little full in the bottom, and the overall effect is blocky.
Maybe it is the angle or the moment, but the pants look a little baggy too. Also, I'm fine with the sleeve length on the jacket, but without a longer sleeve on the shirt it doesn't work as well.
I love this blog, but I tend to think the comments are too gushing. I think it would be much better if folks were generally more willing to give a more balanced review of the outfit.
ooo. The tailoring on his jacket is tremendously cool. It looks like he just took it from a steamer. I like the gold tone against that denim color jacket. I dont why, but its mesmerizing. I cant look away! :)
The thing I love about this guy is he always looks as though he dresses every day as though it's the most special day of his life and then shares it with those who see him. He makes the most amazing colour, form, tone and texture decisions. Imagine seeing him every morning at your local cafe, what pleasure he must bring. Wish you'd photographed him with his beanie on though!
All right, Anonymous at 7:23, Stand by for more gushing. I think t his look is fabulous, whether it's on the blog or not. If I saw this man on the street I would probably forget to look where I was going and walk into a sign post. The jack it very flattering, it makes his chest and shoulders look broader, his waist look slimmer and the bottom floats away from his body just slightly because he doesn't have the bottom button done. Pants? Beautiful fabric, though maybe they need pressing, I can't really tell for sure. The tie is so luxurious and is grounded perfectly for daytime by the plaid shirt. The pocket square adds a certain crispness to the whole thing. His hands and blue eyes are stunning. I could go on about the rest, but won't.
blue the colour of the year. from cornflower to denim to inky navy and all shade variations therein.
i have seen denim cashmere jeans for women.
what is interesting is the cut of his suit..and it's something i've been noticing with more frequency. a narrowness to the silhouette of men's apparel. once again, the shorter cuff..and i would imagine his trousers were the new shorter length as well.
One day in the not too distant future we will look back on these photos of people wearing jackets and trousers that are obviously way too SMALL and SKIMPY on the people wearing them. We will once again realize that it was simply the designers trying to sell a new style for this season and the next to create sales and then move on.
Really, the tie and the shirt and the jacket. Definitely not. Let's move on
I used to think Mr. Rubinacci could do no wrong, except I scrolled down and glanced at the fit of the pants. What's with the crease… there? Sorry, should have pressed them better or something. As for the denim cashmere, wow! How does he get the combos he does?
'I love this blog, but I tend to think the comments are too gushing. I think it would be much better if folks were generally more willing to give a more balanced review of the outfit.' Yes, I definitely agree with you. To me the fit isn't all that great, the pocket square is a bit random and, I'm sorry, the shirt is hideous, that pattern wouldn't fit with anything because it's just ugly. So why are so many people saying they totally love it, surely not everyone must like the whole outfit perfectly? And, if I'm not mistaking, it's not always about the outfit as a whole, small details are equally important. So Scott posting this, doesn't mean he loves everything about it, he finds things interesting about the outfit. A more balanced review would highlight the interesting parts better.
No–definitely not for me this time–it all clashes–both in colour and style. Sometimes people can work it so that the clashing actually blends somehow–but not this time–maybe traditional styling is not meant for clashing–I don't know –if this is what this man wanted. Then again I have seen it work well–maybe it's going really far out with it that needs to happen. This is all too subtle.
I think all the pieces in themselves are great esp the tie, but just not together.
Also agree with some that the fit is not right. The sleeves seem too baggy (and twisted) for the main body.
yes anonymous non-gushers – I LIKE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS OUTFIT…
Why? because it clashes… a yellow tie! with a checkered shirt! hell yes! its quirky I could see Andre 3000 wearing the shirt tie combo.. but this man pulls it off in his own way with a standard grey suit!
Everything doesnt need to be matchy matchy to work. I have a mate who does a similar thing with a red checked shirt and a black tie embossed with a floral vine design and it works…
There's something unusual going on with the pattern on the tie missing from the upper right corner below the knot, and the image isn't of high enough resolution for me to figure it out. Any ideas what's going on there? I presume we're seeing the narrow end, peaking out, but that doesn't explain the sudden change in both directions.
Forgive me for going against the grain here…
The jacket looks too tight, the sleeves too short, the length is silly. He looks like he is wearing a little boy’s coat. -like one of those tiny weenies-in-a-blanket. No room to breathe.
