i really like what this man is wearing and i don’t find it boring at all…he knows how to wear this kind of clothes…i like the sun glasses and his shoes which have something different from the rest of the look!
I agree with Jorge. . .the pants are too short for my taste. I know that’s “the look” now, but I don’t care for it. It looks undignified, somehow. Otherwise, he looks nice enough but not very interesting. He looks like a secret service officer.
“Fitzwell” indeed. Very nicely cut, with a subtlety that can be appreciated by those with an eye for elegance. Boring? Not so! I find men who are dressed like well-dressed men much more interesting than men who are dressed like circus clowns.
O.K. I just lost my appetite. j/k. :) I think of Neo from the Matrix when I see this guy. He looks undeniably sharp and cool in his dark navy tailored pinstripe suit and aviator shades. The mahogany oxfords…seven letters C-L-A-S-S-I-C . I wouldn’t be surprised if his ride was a motorcycle! :)
Oh, haha, took me a while to get it. Fits-well, as in it fits him well. Wow, I’m an idiot. I thought you meant a cross between Fitzgerald and Some-other-name-well. Very nice though, I love the way he executed the look. The hair, glasses, pocket square, tie, shoes. They all just work.
oh do visit my side of the world sometime!! like many before me i continue to admire Fitz~well!!:):) *i love his shades *brogues are my total FAVE on men &women..i love love love *the length of his trousers it perfect (the pinstripe maybe a tad over done perhaps) perfection walks the earth ..where do they make men like these
agree with waleed. – very much an example that money cannot buy style. – all details seem expensive… but there is little else happening. … the berluti-esque shoes catch my eye – but that is not enough. – but then again i never liked berluti in the first place. … you can do more, young man! – ,ore color, more life, more smile – less cool, less on the safe side… do it.
Oh my, yes. Very sharp – fantastic fit, great look. Love the knit tie. LOVE the brown brogues with the blue suit (what other color shoes would he wear?). Shot cuffs, spread collar. Aviators a nice twist. And what a handsome man… Thanks, Sart!
Those of you that think that his pants are too short: his trouser legs are very tapered, and quite narrow around the ankle. Although he could add a little, if he wanted a break, much more than a half an inch and he would have little puddles of material around his feet. Also, that cut of trouser is very Italian, and they typically want to show off their shoes, which I’m certain is the case here as well.
This guy looks fantastic. It’s how I hope to look every day when I leave the house, and then when I see guys dressed this perfectly I realize how far short of the mark I fall. And then I’m kind of depressed.
Americans like swimming in baggy fabric, which makes them look like they’re wearing hand-me-downs. The trousers and sleeves are perfect!
With a suit this flawless, the imperfect tie knot is something of a relief. Total impeccability would be off-putting.
The darker shoe polish on the brown brogues is a nice touch. Love the dark brown with navy blue. Black shoes with the pinstripe would be boring as hell–there’d be no real color relationship. Those hoary old rules about shoes are for amateurs.
nathan: One reason I like this blog is it tunes my fashion eye. I live with Italians in Milano where fashion is almost a competitive sport so I would add that if you feel good about what you’re wearing, there is no reason whatsoever to get down because someone else looks better. I have seen the oddest sizes and shapes here in Milano who carry themselves with their heads up because they obviously enjoy what they are wearing and while they care what others think they also know that attitude affects how others perceive you so… if you like the clothes, play it like you don’t care what others think, even if you find yourself standing next to Giorgio Armani on a street corner!
You will end up looking better just by the attitude change….. and there are plenty of photos on this blog where you can see how attitude will make a difference in a fashion being worn
Hellou! I just would like to quote one of the anonymous comment:
Anonymous said… ” I wish you would do some pairs of photos that show men and women looking similarly “master of the universe.” Guys like this look hot and intimidating and professional. Can women pull this off?”
I share this concern because at times, the woman photos are not so ” professional” looking, or lack the attitude of I can have it all and look good while doing it. I would love to see woman photos who could pull this off.
It’s a shame to see such negative reactions towards what is a perfectly tasteful interpretation of a classic style.. and the pinstripes even match on the jacket and pockets! Don’t bother buying stripes if they don’t run as cleanly as this guy’s… I don’t see this as somber, I see this as clean, classic, and still interesting.. and more lively with the knit tie and pocket square, not to mention the shoes…
This is classic 60′s mod as reinterpreted by Joe Jackson in the early eighties. It’s sort of self-conscious and it telegraphs the man’s intent. It seems like he’s trying a little too hard. Almost the diametric opposite of cool.
Tall men tend to look somewhat awkward in suits; something is always out of proportion and makes them look either a teenager wearing their dad’s suit or some hulking James Bond thug. Not this one, he looks perfectly proportionate. What a great suit!
I am going to sound really picky here, as much as I love the suit and that it fits well, but I think the hairstyle is not “classy” or elegant enough for the suit… there’s a mismatch happening here between the man and his suit… maybe it’s just me with that impression?
Love the linear lines the outfit inspires. The blue pinstripe, light blue shirt, dark blue tie. What makes it for me is the white peaking out of his left breast pocket. Everything is clean and perfectly aligned. Dig the shoes, probable Barker Blacks………
