    usually not a fan of this collar, but the gentleman wears it well.

    everything works well here, the glasses, tie clip, hint of a pocket square.

    It's the "small" touch that brings a classic look that "Peter Panish" collar!

    I think it makes him look like a schoolboy, especially in combo with the tie clasp. Don't like it, although the colors, grooming, etc. are expert.

    Good as far as it goes. His tie and jacket lapels are WAY too narrow, as if he's trying to replicate something he saw in a recent tv drama set in the 1960s.

    Very interesting!!! I personally would have thought the width of the shirt collar would have been too much against the slim lapels, but I like the effect. Of course, this only works if the fit is right and the shirt is perfectly ironed. Great picture and idea!!! Now if we could get a close-up of that tote… Jorge from WPB

    Smart enougn but this illustrates two things that really annoy me. 1) overgrooming – suggests a man too obsessed with himself.
    2) dark glasses – the eyes are so important in communication. When talking to someone wearing them you're only getting half the message! I find it quite rude.
    I'll calm down now ;)

    The collar with the narrow lapel, the twist on the corners of his mustache. What a great way to show personal style while wearing a "grey suit".

    Would love to see more of this guy, casually dressed in particular.

    I have to come back – again – to mad men and the 60ies. And the Beatles, as far as I know, they are the last ones who were pround to wear a club collar, 40 yrs. ago! Do we need in our times of crisis fashion representing the swinging sixties and the revolution? (e.g. Obama alias Kennedy).
    A funny detail: the curve of the collar repeats itself in the curve of his mustache.
    Let me guess, the gentleman works in fashion or in adverstising?

  33. Gerund O'Malley

    The collar looks like it belongs on a child's smock – don't think any adult can wear it convincingly. The jacket looks one size too small. But I love the white/gray combos.

  34. DBW

    That tie and sunglasses combo are spot on. And the gray facial hair makes me want old age to come a bit more quickly.

    For me, the collar, the shades, and the hair all work. Very handsome man. But everything else seems so "high": the tie clip, the jacket button, the bottom hem of the jacket. It looks to me like he's wearing his little brother's suit. It's too bad we can't see his feet. I'm sure his cuffs end two inches above his shoes and, from the other pictures I've seen, I assume he has no socks on!

    I agree with SweetPea. Too groomed, give me a (slightly) shabby man anytime!

    This man has a perfect blend of old world elegance and modern sophistication. The club collar (which I think perfectly compliments his curled mustache) along with other details such as the glasses, tie bar, and pocket square allude to this elegance. The perfectly tailored jacket, with its narrow lapels and the narrow tie give the look a modern edge that is still timeless. I am a huge fan of this look. I hope I can age so gracefully.

    He's an interesting looking fellow, but the collar reminds me of a Peter Pan collar too much and for some reason seeing it paired with his curled up moustache makes me dislike the collar more….weird, I know. In any case, with the above mentioned exceptions, very stylish man and a really nice photo!

    I disapprove of club collars. It's an affectation without purpose or direction, unusual for the sake of being unusual.

    Also, his tie bar is odd. It shouldn't be heavy enough to crease your tie like that.

    The curvature of the club collar is such a darling detail, and the juxtaposition of the rounded element with the crisp lines of the suit produces a singularly lovely effect. It's the sunglasses that really get me though – those are some seriously spiffy shades!

    Wow, I don't remember when so many people were so hypercritical of the details that make it all work. I have a suit with that very cut of jacket, believe me it's meant to fit like that. Bumfreezers are so cool, if you have the physique to pull it off that is. I also rock the Eton collar sometimes (with a collar bar, no less, sometimes tieless sometimes not). Sure it's a bit retro, but I didn't realise how divisive it was. The dude has the best grooming ever. Supercool sunglass action just sets it off for me. I just wish I could see the ankles/feet, the trouser bottoms could be make or break for this get up. Mr Tweed says cool as anything.

    "I disapprove of club collars. It's an affectation without purpose or direction, unusual for the sake of being unusual."

    Sure. And, 'pointy' represents logic, purpose and direction. The 'club' isn't affected. It's not even "unusual." It's just not common TODAY.

    Besides that… this is a 'fashion' blog. All fashion is "affectation" at some level. Why visit if it's not to see something just a bit differently executed? "God is in the details" — LMvdR

    The club collar is ok, but two things are really wrong here:

    1. The suit just doesn't fit. The fabric is pinching around the button and the jacket doesn't close. Jacket looks a bit short and pants look too tight.

    2. The crisp white shirt and light silver tie evoke springtime, but the heavy flannel suit is a winter look. They don't go together.

    Looks like an older man trying too hard to achieve young/hip/trendy. Who wants to bet he purchased a convertible around the same time as that shirt?

    Thumbs down, way down. You know I'm right, so don't try to fight it.

    I would emulate this look. There are just enough details to separate him from a staid Wall Streeter or Trad: slim collar, lapels, and tie. A modern take on the man in the grey flannel suit.

    I disagree that the suit is too tight; It is just right for the '10s.

    Another one of those pictures where I wish I was that guy, or at least dressed like him. Every day.

    "His tie and jacket lapels are WAY too narrow, as if he's trying to replicate something he saw in a recent tv drama set in the 1960s."

    You say that as if it's a bad thing. There are good reasons the style of early-to-mid 60s is attractive to lots of people today. It can be aesthetically pleasing on its own terms but is attractive for other things, like seeming that it was last time people embraced adulthood and weren't haunted by their adolescence.

    That tie clip up too high and too wide for the tie drives me insane. Men used to wear the tie clip two-thirds of the way down to keep their tie in place. J.Crew stylists put it too high so it can be seen while wearing a jacket. This is not the point and it looks ridiculous.

    3. He was indeed wearing socks and the shoes were … Weston, maybe … something solid.

    Love club collars *because* they look so much like Peter Pan collars (which I also adore), although of course they're not the same; the PPC is flat on the shoulders and the club is up-standing like a regular shirt collar. I just love its roundedness – I have LOTs of club collar shirts, and I don't care whether they're in "fashion" or not. Fashion schmashion. For me it's all about style and what I like to wear.
