Beautiful shot, Scott! I like this young gentleman’s scarf and three-button, glenplaid sport coat. These items go well with his hair. Note the tortoiseshell specs in the breast pocket. I wonder why one hand is ungloved? This guy looks like Peter Brimelow.
He is my long-lost brother, bless you for finding him for me. Now IÂ´ll take off my tortoise-shell framed glasses, brush my silver page cut hair and slip into my tweed cape – oh, not to forget the scarf and black woollen skirt. Brown suede boots, or perhaps the black ones today. Hugs and kisses!
my guess is he took off a glove to remove his glasses for the photo, or to put something else (his mobile?) in his jacket pocket (looks like something bulky is in there.) I bet the jacket is RL… just guessing from the buttons and the purple over-pane on the plaid. I love the angled cuffs — am noticing this more and more on well considered tailoring. great photo.
If you’re going to wear a sack suit, that’s the way to do it. Since there’s no darting in the front to give it shape there, taking in the waist would be at odds with the jacket’s cut.
Not every jacket needs to have a lot of shape to make the wearer look good. This one has a very nice drape to it, thanks to the cloth. The effect is obvious on the right side of his jacket, between his bottom button and pocket flap. So many sack suits are made of bad cloth and don’t hang right.
My favorite things in this photo are: (1) his hair, (2) the fit of the shoulders, and (3) the relatively high gorge of the lapels. Take away any of those things, and nothing else matters.
It’s like Helmut Lang meets Trad.
That being said, I wouldn’t wear this. It’s too drab. The littany of gray is unimaginative.
The sleeves are too long, and normally I’d say the jacket hem as well, but it works here as a quasi-coat.
I don’t mind the absence of a pocket square so much. But if I was going to plan my color combos like that, I probably would stuff one in my breast pocket for good measure. What I particularly like, however is the amount his jacket has been broken in and even looks a bit fuzzy and frayed on the edges. I hope all my sport jackets look like that (or even more worn than that one day.
You have shot this same man, wearing this same jacket, once before. The title was something like “perfect casual friday”. I have it in my personal archive of Sartorialist favorites but don’t have time to track it down on the site – maybe you have an easier way?
Oh lovely, i love this man’s look from his prince of wales blazer to his piercing blues eyes. the color palette is minimal, yet very rich. oh and i like the glasses peeking out of his pocket, hehe. trĂ¨s dapper.
