    Lose the watch and this could be a shot from the movie "Remains of the Day". I was never a big fan of this type of suit. The fabric seems clunky and the cut just makes it worse.

    Nice photo though Scott.

    There's nothing quite like the subtle visual interest of grey flannel and its mottled shades.

    Lovely. Classy, timeless. I love the simple light blue/grey/black color combination. I like the watch-it adds a bit of industrial/modern style. And not that I support smoking or anything but the cigar definitely adds something.

    Nice fabric, but just too much of it for my tastes — wide lapels, big pocket flaps, double-breasted, and then a very generous cut to boot.

    Should at least have a pocket square.

    The spacing of the cuff buttons is cool, but I imagine it is a flourish that doesn't stand up to a second or third wearing.

    The watch is an IWC Pilot Chronograph. One of the classiest watches ever made. Not stupidly expensive (around $6K) but IWC are known for conservative manufacture and styling and it will still be telling the time beautifully and accurately a century from now and long, long, long after the suit is outdated.

    i would have perhaps placed a larger button on this suit … like a brushed silver or gunmetal grey shank button… the buttons pale compared to the mans class (and watch)
    interesting fabric choice!

    The watch is a mood-ruiner, best suited for a 23-yo just gaining access to a trust fund, or the insecure. Mr. Hackett is neither. Perhaps he a has a financial stake in the series?

    • Randall

      July 30, 2012 at 11:45 pm

      The flannel fabric has to be heavy to hang correctly. When I went to the greatest tailor in Paris to order my first suit, the head tailor was wearing a suit just like this. He had been with the firm fifty years at that point. I ordered an identical suit and stil have it.

    It is indeed a shame about the watch. However, it does bring character to the look. But I still think that a more subtle choice would have been better. Otherwise it's a lovely photo and the suit is perfectly worn :)

    January 19, 2010 at 2:48 am

    Dapper suit, just a pity it screams "Hackett" and "co-sponsoring deal" a bit too loudly: The tacky 2-2 button pattern is now to be found on many RTW Hackett suits and is simply unnecessary in such a well-cut and pretty obviously up-market suit. IWC has been providing watches for the recent Hackett catalogues. All a tad too corporate for someone who spares no effort to exude the Sloane Range attitude. Nevertheless, the suit as such is a beauty. Watch is probably considered by many a nice modern touch, breaking the seriousness of the classic suit but I would prefer a more restrained "city" wtch, maybe a Reverso? Oh, no, wrong corporate partner…

    Either he is too heavy for the suit or the suit is too bulky for him. The front buttons look out of proportion. The 2&2 on the sleeve screams off the hook Hackett.
    The watch needs to go, perhaps a sleeker in town watch in silver or platinum. Sorry, this ensemble is just not working for me.

    …..Are you serious?….it's January in Milan….a heavy flannel is the perfect fabric for this environment….not surprisingly given who he is the suit is cut perfectly and has a nice personal touch (the buttons)…..the cigar adds a raffish look….agree about the watch comments…it's way too heavy and clunky for this type of suit.

    I'd have to say that the dark, small buttons make for a great compliment to the dark fabric, but the suite just seems a bit to leisurely cut towards the hips. I would also have to say that the watch really doesn't work here, since it diverts from the subtleness of the buttons and presumably the tie.

    I'm pretty sure that's an IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition TOP GUN inspired piece around his wrist. That alone makes this dude a classy guy.

    This guy looks like the guys used to look in GQ when I was a teen, years ago.

    I still want to look like this.

    I love the watch.

    The unexpected grey flannel black chrono combination was the first thing I noticed. That and his haircut are the best thing about the picture.
    Wish there were less suit.
