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. Sunglasses. Mustache, goatee and longish hair with subtle highlights. Suspect is unarmed, but disarming.
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…
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.
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.
