This guy has a beautiful face. But isn’t it completely obvious to anyone with a shred of historical sense that, in two or three years, we will look back at costumes like this and say, What on earth were we thinking? Oh, and he really should wash his hair. Sorry, this may be too negative for you Scott.
Jacket is ALL WRONG. Sleeves are too short and skinny, the shoulders are too narrow and the curve of the jacket’s torso is puckering (in fact, the whole damn jacket is puckering) due to the improper fit. Can’t see anything redeeming about the suit. Don’t care for the unbuttoned shirt and tie either. You must decide, unbutton the shirt and wear no tie, or button it up and have a tie.
I don’t think the suit was meant to follow the general guidelines of a good fit. The picture plays between the idea of formal/professional and casual/a bit sloppy. His hair is a little messy, he hasn’t shaved, but yet, he’s wearing a tightly fitted suit and a slim tie. I actually really enjoy this juxtaposition.
i don’t mean to date myself, but this kid seriously looks like taylor hanson. right?? although, i can’t really imagine him wearing such a super suit in new york, so i suppose it can’t really be him. either way, i love the fitted jacket. it creates a really good contrast with everything going on above his shoulders. he looks like he was born in it.
i do like the concept, loving narrower sleeves, not sure if this completely hits the right notes. really look at the proportions. his head and hands seem out of proportion to his wee frame and narrow shoulders, and i think the suit might be to blame. but then again, judging from his shirt and tie, perhaps this is supposed to be all together a more casual reinterpretation of the classic suit?
I actually really like the ‘tight look’ of a suit when it applies when buttoned only rather then the suit as a whole, which unfortunately is the case here. With the short length of both jacket and sleeves, instead of the cool and progressive modern look it just seems to suggest he got the size devestatingly wrong.
theres something very appealing about this image the man is beautiful undoubtedly but his stance is appealing like the moment a boy recognises himself as a man the transition is caught held revealed and revealing all in one moment
guys, get over yourselves. this is a young man who wants to wear tailored clothes without looking as if he works in an office. last time i went to my tailor (kilgour on savile row, who made cary grant’s suits) the fitters were talking about shorter jacket lengths etc. it’s a way of making suits look modern again.
whoever knew wearing a suit could be such a provocative thing to do? this man is clearly making a number of readers hot under the collar for DARING to wear a tightly tailored suit, because he is not doing it properly. But who said there was one way to wear a suit? Maybe it’s ok to wear a suit to be sexually attractive (as this guy does) rather then because you have to as a lawyer (or something). Rip up them rule books…
Sure, this look will go out of (mainstream) style someday, but it will always be cool. The hip punkrock kids have been wearing shrunken 50s/60s stuff for years and years now… It just so happens that the corporate-types have deemed this as acceptable for now.
There are too many people here who think that it is sufficient to wear a small short suit to be the height of cool. It is self evident that small suits are just as susceptible to being wrongly fitted as normal ones. Done right its a look done wrong its just wrong. Try hard style is not sexy. Olus he loks like he slept in the thing. Which goes against the whole ethos of that look,
No, no, no. This is all wrong. I understand what this look is trying to accomplish, but it simply doesn’t work. I don’t care what the fashion of the moment is, a suit should at least fit well to look good. This one doesn’t. Love the colour combination though.
I like suits that are cool looking and still classy/professional. I can’t see being taken seriously in a business setting wearing this guy. On paper it’s got all the right elements for a hip, modern suit. But the execution is all wrong…
Is he a model? Jeez, he’s stunning. I actually like the short length of the jacket but think it should be let out through the body just a tad, so it’s still fitted but not pulling at the button. And I concur with whoever commented on the wide collar/skinny tie = bad combo idea. Not that it really matters, though. He’s trying, and with that face and body, he really doesn’t have to if he doesn’t want to.
When is taking fashion to far is the question I often ask? I think this is a perfect example, this suit is not complimenting at all. There is no replacing a properly fitting suit( IF YOU WANT TO BE DIFFERENT USE ACCESSORIES ARE SOMETHING BUT DON’T COMPROMISE FIT)!
great that more and more guys are wearing the suits that fit too small, very school boy-ish. we probably all laugh our heads off in a couple of seasons, but hey… at least this is a statement that stands out of the ‘boring’ crowd! you need to have confidence to pull this look off. only negative : the hair… please go see a hairdresser soon…:-)
