    Those colors are so pleasing, especially the vest with those funky old style buttons. But I especially like the way he is sitting. Its a lot more interesting then when people have old style ideas of perfect posture and poise. The more I look the more I find that not standing or sitting upright is a lot more interesting in a picture.

    Are those pleated pants? I ask only because of the cuff.

    This is good stuff. That guy just gave me a serious lesson about color matching.
    This is the best post I’ve seen in a while. Great job.
    So long.

    Navy suits make everything better. Plus, it’s a lot more fun to don a navy suit and play with the colors. Hats off to the shoes, especially.

    In the old days (1950s and 1960s) these beautiful green socks would have been made handknit by this man’s wife/girlfriend. And they likely would have been argyle (which I prefer actually to a plain solid, although I do love green).

    It occurs to me that it must be hard to put together a suit, and this one is done well.

    He has pulled the socks up so high that you can see the colour of the heel, that’s just wrong….

  75. Sally

    November 10, 2011 at 8:55 am

    Such a fun outfit… though at first the suit appears bespoke (and carefully thought out pairing chesnut with a ‘bright’ navy), you then notice what can only be his (or someone’s) old prep school tie. A perfect work ‘uniform’, 10 or so years later!

    Wow, what a beautiful, sophisticated mixture of colors. Light blues, dark blues, light browns, dark browns, and a touch of green to top it off. This kind of refinement of personal style really reflects a person’s confidence.

    Wonder how long and hard he looked before finding a tote that perfectly matched the blue of his suit!

    Very nice but didn’t appreciate the bright green heel being visible. Many colours in the mix but still there’s harmony. I think lighter brown smart shoes could also have worked nicely (similar colour with the cardigan) with the suit.

    I wonder if the colour of the suit really is so deep blue (the contrast with the rest of the photo is just awesome) or if it’s just the photograph’s settings…
