amazing! i love linen and this season is so “hot”. He looks very elegant without trying. Beatiful suit, beatiful material, beatiful cut beatiful color and beautiful smile. love the patched pocket on a linen suit. great picture. bravo Sartorialist, right on!
this style it’s remember to the sytle of my parent to go to work ath the 70′s , when i was a baby…the brown colour and the slimmer of the size…don’t you think about the seventies when you look at it???
The caramel cowboy. Vacca’s masterful sense of color shown in full effect here, with a degree of coordination between suit and shoes that is sublime yet vaguely unsettling. Beautiful, contemporary menswear that strikes a fine balance between classical and avant-garde.
ok i know that right now you’re in ny but yesterday i was shopping in a hat shop on melrose blvd in los angeles and there was a man there that looked just like you. I had to do a double take but i realized it wasn’t you because he was holding no camera. plus im on your site religiously and i know where you are. by the way, I was just recently introduced your site a couple weeks ago and I love it. Its so full of inspiration for me because currently im a fashion student at otis college of art and design. Thank you for the wonderful work you do =)
A while ago I was standing at a shop window looking at some linen clothes. A woman walked by with her friends and said: “Linen is really terrible, it’s always wrinkly!” I just had a big ? in my head, just stopping myself from asking her: “So what, isn’t that what linen is supposed to do?! Isn’t that the beauty of it?!” Well, I just wanted to say, that while I can see that it can be difficult for some people to carry it off with elegance, I also really love the texture of linen and it is a pleasure to see it work so well on this gentleman.
he is the master “the maestro”of Italian sartorial clothing. Love the cut and the fabric. I met Mr. Vacca and his dedication to top quality in everything he does blew my mind. If you can guys check his stores. Also i was very impressed by his woman collection. Nobody does an hand made woman collection in the market today like DV. Great shot Sartorialist.
Thank you for showing a linen suit. I just had one made-to-measure in a dark brown the salesman was second guessing my choice in linen but I siad I would take the blame if it was to ‘wrinkley’. I’m glad I stuck to my guns. Now I need to get shoes and your picture again helped me feel better about my choice.
I could see spectators with this, but I also like how these shoes blend in. I’m having a hard time picturing any other shade of brown that wouldn’t stick out.
How about an ascot? For the day in a light shade and with spectators it would make it look quite jaunty, and if in the evening in a darker shade with shoes to complement (not spectators) it would dress it up a bit. Just a thought.
It’s amazing that, unless I missed it, only one person mentioned a problem with the button on the jacket. Is this a case of “the emperor has no clothes”?
I believe the button stance on this jacket, for this gentleman , is wrong. In my view the remedy would have been to either go with a slightly lower button stance OR go to a three button model.
Everything else? Lovely.
