sehr gut! a bit designery and excessive (but he is a designer!) but take the ideas of the layered look, the complementary colors, the patch pocket jacket (sans exaggeration through epaulets, odd seams, etc.) and you can tone down a good idea and make the look your own. This is why designers are creative; they provide the starting point and inspiration for us to adopt to our own interpretation of their ideas.
I really love the colors! I mean how his grey hair connects to his shirt and tie and how his skin reflects to some of the brownish tones in his jacket. I really wish that there was multiple photos with different backgrounds and with warmer and colder lights sometimes… Such a great photo, you have an amazing eye mr Sartorialist.
Nice to see him again. I remember seeing a profile on him in GQ way back when (’89? ’91?) and how he was outfitting Bryant Gumbel when he was on Today. I’ve been a fan of his work since then. Easy, subtle, and handsome clothes.
yes! Boston’s very own Joseph Abboud and one of my favorite people to come out of my neighborhood! He’s the same age as my parents, yet he dresses so much more stylishly and still looks great. The jacket is fabulous.
I like that white hair and the tie, scarf and shirt look very interesting together. If I were him, I wouldnâ€™t put my hand in the jacketâ€™s pocket because in the long run it can ruin its shape: it would be a shame, but the jacket would still be great.
Talk about suave. It takes special kind of class to pull off the velvet scarf loosly tied about the neck. This lovely blazer is authentically genteel. Sarto, I would love to read what you have to see about this gentleman’s jacket because I am not so well versed in the details that I see here. Are those epaulets on the shoulders?
I’ve never left a comment before, because i normally agree with most people’s views- but i think this jacket is horrible! dreadfully overdesigned, not very well cut, and the epaulettes don’t even sit flat. Other than that, undistinguished shirt, trousers, and tie. Fairly nice scarf, and i like that he has his sleeves rolled back. Disappointing!
Sorry to be negative, usually love the outfits, and i will of course continue to check in every day!
Love this man and his style. Mind you he got quite big in the 80s when bombastic was in absolute vogue. I think u are hitting on a lot of points that I have been telling myself when I want to buy something. Everything I buy I catch myself saying it looks better when it is simpler and suits the body. Also I do think people are gushing to much about what he is wearing and the greys. Maybe in another background I would see what the great is the fuss. I almost wonder if Mr J Aboud would agree.
Anyone know what this gentleman does now; I know he sold his line a few years ago. Surely he has not gone back to Louis in Boston; and BTW..why didn’t they last in NYC; the odd location on 57th perhaps; a bit too east?
sorry all but this look isn’t doing it for me. Kind of strange but for some reason I don’t think the outfit is for him. If I put my hand over his face the outfit looks nice enough, perhaps a little fussy around the neck with the turned collar, low scarf knot, and exposed tie. As soon as I remove my hand, he just looks like he;s trying too hard. Maybe I just have this reaction when an older man wears an outfit with so much going on, so many details, esp the twisted arm seam. It looks a bit contrived.
