oooh look im first! i just love pictures of old men, especially when they do it so well. But the whole mobile phone thing is confusing my natural thought patterns… but i guess if he can dress this well, he can work out the whole mobile thing too aye?…
I think his coat is a bit boring, the flannel looks flat and commercial and the sleeves and back is too short. The narrow trousers reveal his skinny legs – pleats and a bit more room would have been handsome. The colour combination and his hair is perfect though.
The edges on the suit coat (lapel, hem, cuffs) are so finely sewn and pressed that they remind me of paper creases. (I’m thinking especially of the creases made when you fold a paper airplane.) I think it gives what appears to be a heavy fabric a light and airy look.
I wonder if that is a custom shirt, because the collar size is just perfect. If it is a custom shirt, then the unbuttoned shirt cuffs are an affectation (he could certainly have requested cuffs that fit loosely), but a harmless one. I think his pants should be a bit looser. We should not be able to see the outline of whatever he is carrying in his front right pocket. I like his hair and I really like the suit material. A lovely combination of blue and grey. He should consider a windsor knot for his tie to go with the spread collar shirt.
I like the overall restraint of this guy’s style with some added bits of fun (glasses, bracelets), and I love the shoulder and lapel on the suit but . . .
The suit is cut too close. It lacks a certain “body” or fullness. I don’t really understand the school of thought that a jacket that is cut close to the body is a good fit. A suit can be shaped to a person’s body and give that person a little bit of breathing room. The tension on the middle button is a dead give away that a little more cloth is necessary. Ditto on the trousers, needs more drape.
The suit is beautiful, it just needs a little more meat on its bones. Sort of like Kate Bosworth.
Keep it up SART I am with you all the way 100%. I just hope one day you can capture my style here on the street in the city. I dress in a very similar if not the same style so when are you going to be on madison avenue in the 60′s-70′s already lol? Tommorow or sunday around 1 see you there!
Yes, fair enough! He’s awesome. The more pictures of guys who look like this, the better. As for ANON 10:05 – maybe you should spend time with other blogs instead of this one if you find it so sycophantic. There’s a whole Internet out there…
Awesome… The cut of the suit is perfection. Modern, classic, effortless and transcends trends: Timeless. Totally feeling the individual and whimsical touch of the yellow glasses and the bracelets. This has nothing to do with fashion– just pure style.
I love when all the Americans start waxing puritanical about the close continental European cut–especially when most American suits out there fit like pajamas. They sound like a bunch of old-fashioned rubes.
This guy is absolute perfection! The jacket sleeves are magnificent.
This for me is what the Sartoralist is all about. Please no more tiresome skinny jean hipsters. Sart, you can post him on here as many times as you like as far as I’m concerned. Could you get any more Italian?
