    Your mastery of the lighting has very few equals. How do you achieve this uniqueness? It is truly emotional. The translation of style from street to screen has been your triumph and as the song says "nobody does it better". Please keep on "lighting" up my life, sart. You and garance are fast becoming the Bogey and Bacall of our fashion age. Long may you reign!!!

    Be on the lookout: International Man of Mystery.
    Last seen on Florence street corner wearing:
    Three piece tan linen suit (three piece jacket, high-waisted sans-a-belt trousers).
    White spread collar shirt.
    Paisley tie in a deep red and gray colorway.
    Mustache, goatee and longish hair with subtle highlights.
    Suspect is unarmed, but disarming.

    there is something sexy and very off at the same time His goatee is illuminated and his hair is sweeped back in a funny hook not a good balance and the emphasis is on his crotch It's a funny shot

    How on earth does he manage to make even those high-waisted pleated pants look dashing? If I wore a hat it would be off to him.

    I don't think anyone's commented on his unbuttoned cuffs on his jacket-adds so much! not too keen on a paisley tie with a summer suit but he still looks great.

    What a fantastic suit, and I love the white on white shirt and suit, and the fluid tie, almost like a knotted scarf.

    Whenever I need a little dose of cheer, I can count on Sartorialist to supply it. Thanks!

    sadly, if i wore a linen suit i'd look like sidney greenstreet in almost any movie he made that took place in the tropics…sigh.

    and the trousers don't look high-waisted to me.

    I've always wondered how he can pull off those double pleated pants… how skinny is he in real life? I also always admire the length of his jackets. His suits never follow the "new trends" and he looks awesome, timeless…

    My next vacation address is Italy, perhaps Capri. You are to blame, you!
    These gentlemen are so easy on the eye in their nonchalant linen wrinkles and glasses surrounded by sexy facial hair.

    The trouser waist with sharp, short pleats and the tight fit of the jacket button makes the outfit unbalanced.

    is that a linen suit? that's so smart, though i don't know how there aren't a ton of wrinkles on it!

    Beautiful lighting contrast, evoking 3D and warmness..
    Only that I feel his sleeve is bit too long.

    answer to Amelia:

    the answer is awesome fiber blend – linen-rayon-polyester… all together give crisp look without loosing "ruffness" and breath of linen….

    Revolver, he is very skinny in real life, and that is an advantage in dressing. By the way, he is also an extremely nice and soft-spoken person.

    What is it with showing off working cuff buttons. Is this not a vulgar thing to do? Sartorial boasting?

  79. Anonymous

    Showing off working cuff buttons?
    I've always resisted it, but I see a fair amount of it around town, here in Los Angeles. Not necessarily vulgar, but definitely boasting. To be sure, a Neapolitan armhole is also boasting of a sort, but much more subtle, and only apparent to the cognoscenti.

    The problem for me is the double pleated trousers; they add inches to his waist and make him look bigger than he probably is.
    As for the showing of working cuff buttons, this is becoming rather moot given that lower end brands (for example Massimo Dutti, a brand owned by Zara) has working button holes on all their jackets.

    Fantastic, love the combination with the sunglasses! Although, I'm not sure about the suit being linen..

    Trust me, the thing here is the choice of tie. That is a very brave and smart choice. It is a autumn/winter tie placed in a context where it works 100%. Of course there is the rest but that is what takes this to a higher level.
