I never see any bad comments on this blog. There are a few details of what he's wearing that I do like (the contrast of his leather bound agenda and the pocket square). But the fit of his double breasted jacket is to wide in the middle for my taste (unless its the shadow from the left arm casting unsightly proportions). Im hoping he's posing for the picture because if his normal posture is what's exhibited here, then he'll never look good in a suit jacket with the buckling of fabric behind the lapel. All in all I hope he has on some monk straps that match his agenda in hand. The walking stick makes his outfit costume-y, like he's TRYING to be cool.
Your title made me actually laugh out loud. Mainly because the play on words works even better thanks to his posture! Love the bag, bracelet, angle of the sunglasses, lack of tie, tiny bit of pocket square, lapel size. I mean…just beautiful. Not to mention the colour of the suit.
I like the leather wrist straps with the suit. I've been doing this and it brings a bit of earthiness and a casual air to a more formal look. (I don't know, however, about the handbag, unless he's from Italy.)
i very often have to use a cane because of chronic gout. i'd love to find a cane that looks so good and can stand up to actual use. i don't mind his buttoned up shirt without a tie. the pocket square kind of makes up for the lack of tie. i hope his shoes match his bag/agenda thingy. that would really make this outfit sing.
Great look, in blue navy you go everywhere. This all-buttoned-no-tie style makes him special. I really miss the shoes, though i can imagine it. My poor english prevents me to catch the play on words in the headline. Will someone help me?
He looks well put together for a guy on a cane. His look is not overdone to contradict the fact that he has a limiting physicality (is that a word?) If he was dandy-ish looking the cane wouldn't be believable. Coordinated, minimilistic, tight, self contained…sweeeettt!
This shot reminded me of an awful morning where I was forced to limp around NY for a day after injuring my foot. I had to resort to buying emergency crutches and birkenstocks. Though practical, neither item carried me along my shopping journey down 5th Ave with as much panache as this gentleman!
@Marissa…canes for the purpose of an injured limb, sure. But in this instance, and this being solely a style blog, I believe Scott shot this as an acknowledgement of his cane as more of working accessory to his outfit, not as a temporary aid for his bipedal movement. I like the IDEA of his outfit, but the execution (even if his posture a direct result of his injury) still leaves little to be desired by The Monocle.
@JFK Jean…Does this guy have on a special shoe for a hurt foot?
