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.
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.
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.
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.
