looks like a watch fob, IMO. however, if it’s a watch fob, can’t be on the lapel, as they are supposed to be usually in the lower pockets. pro’ly his own take as an accessory? either way, brilliant use, i guess.
It is a watch fob. A pocket watch can be worn and is worn in the breast pocket. With a three piece suit it’s worn in the waistcoat, which has the appropriate “lower pockets”, it doesn’t work on the coat.
For some reason, this reminds me of my father. The impeccable herringbone tie with the fabulous tweed jacket, but above all, I love the nonchalance of the silk pocket square.
Textures and colors are perfectly coordinated together.
Love the tone on tone brown — it looks very comfy + chic at the same time. The choice of tie is particularly snazzy. Love, too, the way he dresses up his tweed-jkt ensemble — the shirt collar, the pocket square, etc. are suprisingly elegant details applied to a look normally associated with country casual or the Ivy Leage. Two words come immediately to mind “Harris Tweed” although I know this jkt has a much grander provenance.
details are good indeed, but what really makes all possible is the blazer! love the unusually wide and big but not bossy lapel design and the finish stitch. it really gives a good ground for those tiny little decos.
The tie is fine. Stripes always look good with a tweed coat and many men would wear a straightforward silk repp which is an even more sophisticated tie than this wool or cashmere. The expert at this pattern/texture mixing is Luciano Barbera.
The watch-chain in lapel has been very popular look in England since the 1940s but the chain and bar in this example are a little too thin. It is not a bad look but it now looks rather contrived, unless one is really vamping up the vintage. The tie and shirt are not very well conceived and yet they do seem to work. The weave of the tweed is far too conservative for such a bold look on an elderly gentleman.
