    The tie-and-shirt combo makes me go a little crosseyed…but in a good way. :)

    he’s looking dapper as usual. i love the way the jacket fits him.

    the only thing i disagree with is the necktie–it doesn’t go well with the rest of the outfit.

    Whenever you post this person I always think his suits are too tight, maybe just me but I sure cannot wear them like that and be comfortable.

    I love how happy Mory always looks to be photographed, and how straight he stands for it. He has such evident pride in his appearance.

    The contrast between the mixed patterns of his shirt and tie works because the suit is a simple cut in black.

    Also, everyone you feature on The Sartorialist radiates such charm, and energy, regardless of whether or not I like what they’re wearing. The clothes seem like well chosen accessories to their lives, which I suppose is what good fashion and a well-developed sense of personal style strive to do. Well done.

    “simple cut”? that’s one of the most dramatically cut suits I’ve seen.

    I’m not sure I like it. It’s too severe.

    The button stretches the suit which means it’s too tight. The shoulders cling too much which means – again – the jacket is way too tight. Also, he looks a bit short, which means he would do better with a cropped jacket. Otherwise, a daring ensemble.

    i don’t think the jacket is too tight. i bet it feels like he’s wearing a sweater instead of a jacket.

    The jacket is a bit tight, but it’s still nice.
    The shirt-tie combo is avant-garde. I love daring contrasts.

    His picture was in the New York Times, and there he was wearing a red pocket square, I recall. I wonder what brought about the change, because the ensemble worked so much better in the other combination. Here the pink just feels like an insipid afterthought.

    It’s a great look but the poor cut of the suit (maybe he gained some weight) makes him look uncomfortable and stiff. The opposite of the feeling one should have with these kind of colors.

    Well, what can I say? This man epitomises style in spades and is the kind of dude that would make you feel totally inadequate if you walked past him on the street.

    i’m still surprised to read that some people think the jacket fit is: tight, too tight, poor cut. i guess it’s a difficult switch for them from hip hop/baggy clothes to sartiorale (tailor or hand made). what makes this possible to breathe is the double vent and the fabric (cashmere or vicuna). i never know this guy mory but i’ve seen so many shots of him on this blog and i will bet a lot of money that it’s his business to look sharp because he has to sell tailored suits(sartoriale). by the way mr. sartorialist please tell us where mory works.

    the shirt, the tie – beautiful together.

    the jacket does look a touch small, but perhaps it’s by design?

    Hats off to Mory once again….This is an etremely hard look to pull off, but yet he pulls it off with exuberant confidence!……The cut is beautiful, and epitomises what bespoke tailoring is all about!

    For those who were wondering, he works for Eredi Pisano.

    The suit fits great, and he looks self confident… but the tie… mmm… no way!.
