    Perfection. Wow, what a nicely put together gentleman.
    His suit, tie, shirt, and jewelry are both lovely and understated. Nice to see someone as young as he, already so well put together. Just think what he'll look like twenty five years from now! Gosh, do you think he has trouble getting a date?

    Really nice, but I didnt like the gold rings and watch. I prefer silver ones. I love his shirt and the suit. It is nice the red detail on the suit.

    What I like most about this look is the red button holes at the lapel and cuff. They're eye-catching and they give the suit a bit of a kick. It's the details that get me, not the bling.

    Love the gold watch, for sure. But the red detail on the lapel and cuff button holes is what makes the look for me.

    interesting – did he re-fold his lapel over the third buttonhole? Love the contrast stitching on top and on the cuffs. Rings need to go, though. Just too much.

    The gold watch complements the understated wardrobe but the rings are overkill, and identical at that which is ridiculous. Lose the rings and it's close to perfection. Love those red seams on the buttonholes of the jacket!

    Gold watches often looks very cheesy, but he pulls it of beautifully. It goes really well with the blue suit.

    I'd definitely skip the rings though, and the tie knot is way to tiny!

  39. Jean

    August 23, 2010 at 11:20 am

    Key thing are the red sewings, but gold watch + rings + earrings, not sure of it. The tie is fine, looks like a Bulgari.

    The high notch lapel is very sharp, and the pop of red really commands attention. Unfortunately the gold kills the look off. Hands = Bob The Bruiser from Romford, Everything else = Italian gentleman.

  43. chiggafied

    August 23, 2010 at 11:24 am

    The red stitching on the lapel buttonhole is what makes this pop.

    Otherwise, I think he could do without the rings.

    he is handsome and impeccably dressed, with attention to all the details…. and yet, there's something off about the outfit. it makes him look narrow shouldered and broad hipped. i think it's the wide, high notched lapel on the jacket.

    Ok. There is a guy who would most probably make my head turn. But one look at his hands and I would surely turn, I mean RUN, away! If it was just for the watch, he could get away with it. But, the rings?

    The Sart. Blue Period continues. As noted by a fellow commenter, Blue suits,even very dark blue suits or pin-striped are hard to find in the US for some odd reason. I think the lapel was mis-pressed? I've never seen a button hole on the front of a lapel! Great fit- all else is flawless as well

    great, seductive shot of an incredibly handsome guy. love the suit's red details, but the notches on the lapels seem unusually high to me. and i'll definitely pass on the gold watch. bling is fine, but here i'd opt for "less is more."

    I love this suit, the high notches on the lapels, the cool red stitching on the buttonholes. I think maybe it's supposed to have the pressing of the lapels so that the buttonhole shows. I don't like the rings either, too much, but the earring and the watch are perfection.

  75. rEVOLVEr

    August 23, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    Yes to all but i like silver more than gold, I think it matches most skin tones a little better. I like the red details on the suit a lot too. And Scott, when are you going to start shooting the shoes of these men? I really want to know what shoes they're wearing!

    I recognize this gentleman! He was featured in your blog before wearing a tan poplin suit and a rich, dark purple tie holding a cigarette.

    It's fun to see the duality in comparing the two photographs. In the previous one, he's discreete; here, he's quite bold with his jewelry yet somehow subtley so.

    Wow!! what a tie! Such a great combination. However, I'm not sure why EVERY single comment here just focuses on the pedestrian, arcane details about the gentleman's entire look! He owns this outfit, look at this posture! That perfect symmetry effect on each side

    PEOPLE its about the wholesomeness, gestalt, seemingly effortless look of the attire. If we're to dissect everything one by one and comment on why or why not it works, we miss the picture itself! Please, lets be open here! Its like looking at a painting and focusing on the frame, or the contour!

    Couldn't really let this one pass. Have to agree with Ozwald…you know if your jewellery is over the top if it can be referred to as 'bling'. Strangely this guy is wearing this rather unmissable watch on his right arm (left handed perhaps?)

    The suit is nicely cut and no doubts about it he is a trim good looking chap! Few pointers – tie knot should be bigger to fill the collar spread. Pocket square is a nice touch if a little close in tone to the shirt (avoid actually matching). The contrast stiching on the button holes (especially on cuff which appear to work) highlight this is a well made suit. Red is a strong colour to choose though for my taste…

    Nice suit. Sharp shoulders, good color combo and the watch is a good accent. I wish the tie knot was bigger. The big collar with small tie knot seems out of proportion. Either a fat knot or a thinner collar with skinny wool tie would've worked better in my opinion.

    Other than that, he looks sharp.

    For some reason I would not expect this fellow to wear bling. His fine (yet still powerful) features don't quite suit it to me. But I do love the earring on him. However–he is beautiful looking and his stance is sexy.
    About the bling though–I think silver would have suited this blue suit tone more than this colour gold–or maybe a deeper toned gold? I normally don't like too much bling on men either, but I do think it can look great….and if he really had to…with silver bling this would have looked perfect in my eyes.

    I like the shirt collars, shirt cuffs, wide lapels on the jacket, and the detailing on the jacket (plus the handkerchief!).

    (1) there is too much bling (the watch is far too "shouty").
    (2) the unbuttoned jacket cuff shouts "look at me! I have an expensive bespoke jacket!"
    (3) a tie should show a full knot, particularly with wide collars. Otherwise it looks like it might belong to a schoolboy.

    A couple of other picky points:
    (1) his tie is too long
    (2) his trousers are pressed carelessly, creating two creases on his right trouser leg. This kind of detail is important and would really finish the sharp look.

    Even still, the overall look is quite stylish and just needs a couple of tweaks to look truly stunning.

    Great blog by the way.

    For those saying that too much gold looks tacky or cheesy; please remember that this is usually based on fashion advise. Problem is that most fashion advise that is given out is usually that which suits western/Caucasian/fair skinned people. Hence the preference for white metals like silver, platinum and steel as these tend to look better on them compared to gold.

    Gold is a warm metal and looks great on people with warm/dark skin; so gold looks incredible on people with black, brown, dusky, olive, ruddy and maybe even tanned skin but, many time ends up looking horrible on someone with really pale or excessively fair skin.

    While white metals are more suitable on different skin types because they are color neutral; hence the fashion advise is to stick to them as it is difficult to go wrong with them. The problem however is that they also tend to be appear "cold" as well as have a high contrast on darker skin tones such as black, brown, high tanned and Mediterranean types.

    So the gold jewelery is perfect for his skin type; white metals would have made it look a bit cold. The gold gives warmth both to his personality and also adds color to his outfit given that with the exception of the subtle touch of red his dress is entirely in one single color range – blue. Even the tie with a bit of blue, black and white plays to the color blue.

    Gold is a conspicuous sign of wealth and such display of wealth was usually frowned upon; this is probably at the root of the complaint that the watch and rings are too showy and a bit too much and draw too much attention; well I will have to say that in this day of cookie cutter suits and cookie cutter personalities it takes courage and confidence to stand out.

    Personally I would prefer to stand out from the crowd and express my own individuality rather than go with the flow just so that I can get people's approval.

    I think this guy does that exact same thing perfectly; he knows how to stand out and express his individuality and had the confidence and style to carry of that look.

    From the red buttonhole on his jacket to the baby blue pocket square to his patterned tie and his gold accessories. Best of all, at the end of it, it brings the focus back to his face, which is just as intent.

    I agree with one of the posters before: "the gold watch shouldn´t be covering the shirtcuff!"

    He looks great. I like the amount of jewelry. But it looks like he pulled out the watch and put it on top of his shirtcuff, so you could clearly see it. And that makes it seem like he's maybe too into his jewelry. Maybe this was just a mistake.
