I have an issue that you can tell he purchased the whole outfit in one shop, in one room, from the same designer in the same trip. It works well, but to me it looses credibility and falls short of a true â€śSartorialistâ€ť. I hate pre-canned looks, too Nuevo-riche.
I like the colors – I think here it’s a very earthy, natural sort of look BUT (a) the spread collar (which I too favor) seems like it is way too spread, and then (b) the tie knot is subsequently too small. And then there is the pants, which are tending a wee bit tight round the middle. Tha tells me he’s either in a bit of denial about his portion size, or he hasn’t had these pants to the tailor yet for a bit of unsquinching.
I like the outfit but it’s definitely an all Ralph outfit which loses points. It looks like a Keaton shirt which I personally wear as much as possible but the whole Windsor/exaggerated spread is not everyone’s cup of tea. The knot size actually works for me because it compliments the slimmer lapels. A big knot, coupled with the shirt, would overwhelm the look.
if u have a heavier suit/coat which has a touch of a rustic cosy tweed (check: harris tweed) itÂ´s supposed to appear kinda sophisticated or aristocratic. matches perfect with this guy. looks like he came right from his country residence…
cutaway collar is also a fantastic thing to wear…looks best with smaller tie-knots…see prince charles..the master of the perfect tieknot-size-collar-combination…a kent collar would make the lapel look hillarious and to voluminous..great outfit for this person.
I think the whole look works great. Love, love, love the cutaway collar. All of the proportions are right on point. The suit looks great with the slanted pockets. Hopefuly the pant are a little too short and cuffed.
