Nice find, Sart. I am assuming this gentleman dressed like this on purpose. If so, he did an admirable job. I could do without the leather cap, and the jacket sleeves are too long. And of course the facial hair is excessive. I like the packet square detail. Quirky.
Something about stripe colors on tie with wide shirt collar points reads a little too “pulled this out of back of closet” i/o cool retro. Suit itself is great and I’m really liking his choice of hat to set off his outfit. Oh, and pocket square could use a little help. And, beautiful lighting in photo…very good exposure…might have cropped fire hydrant bottom right though…
Simba looks absolutely spiffy! absolutely adorable, just like the one i know in lion king. great look and shirt tie combination as well as the pocket square. what watch was he wearing; did you catch that S?
I find the combination of his leather hat, the suit, the blue shirt and tie, to be thought provoking. He looks great, and I’m thinking the outfit would work even better with a darker tie. Striking, nonetheless.
This man makes a wide tie look fly – be still my heart. I love the cock of his leather brim – it’s like a nod to Bill Cosby in “Let’s Do it Again” and Jimmy Cliff’s “The Harder they Come.” Yet, the crisp white pocket square signals a nod from the 50s. The only quibble I have is that the crotch of his pants seems a bit baggy for his small frame. Yet, the gleam in his eyes makes up for any faux pas.
A kind of call-and-response between “knows what he’s doing” and “doesn’t.”
The hat is of course absolutely wrong, even/particularly as “quirky.” The jacket’s single(?) buttoned button is set too low, almost at waist height, creating far too much shirt and tie reveal, and the shoulder-neck fit seems iffy.
Also, there’s way too much matchy-matchy baby blue, a color that, in my opinion, should be removed from the spectrum.
sharp. pocket square needs a bit help i agree. and its pity the watch wouldn’t let the cuff show a bit.
btw, Thom Browne’s line called Black Fleece for Brooks Brothers up for sale in Edinburgh shop (in London too)! I couldn’t believe. Even for women. Have tried DB suit but one should be slim to look good in it(even boyish) but I loved the quality and the fit, on mannequin:) Prices 800-950 pounds for a jacket, that’s on a 50% sale. Apparently TB is not well known here as all SAs were surprised that I was aware (from this blog!! gave them reference to the blog:)
“matchy matchy” – a phrase that has been taken way to far. It has gone from the idea that everything you wear need not match exactly to a way to ridicule any attempt to color coordinate clothing and accessories. Its as though one must be completely discordant in order to be fashionable in the eyes of some.
While I can understand how some might not like the outfit (though I do), I fail to see how this is too matchy match.
He is a specimen to be found in the most cosmopolitan cities in this world. His look seems romantically informed by the old Village Vanguard jazz scene. He isn’t a throwback, but is rather an heir of style. The modern accessories and the tension of qualities definitely update that look and illuminate his qualities as a dressing ‘artiste’! -Flick
Elegant and sexy! He looks wonderful. The tie is a bit big and striped for my taste (it reminds me of a barber pole), but Simba is definitely impeccably dressed. Love the cap, pocket square and old school fro and facial hair.
