    Love the two greys and the white of his shirt and pocket square. Grey is wonderfully spare.

    Absolutely stunning. I love everything. The hair, the sunglasses, the heather gray tie, that amazing suit, and of course the coat. Would have loved to see the shoes, but this is still plenty. Wonderful.

    The suit is beautiful and the fit is perfect, but what is it with Italian men’s hair? Many of them remind me of 70′s mannequins.

    That is how to wear a double breasted suit. I love the elaborate fold of a simple pocket square, and the tie compliments the suit perfectly.

    PLEASE come and dress me! I’m a woman and I never feel my best in suits; I feel not quite right. I want to feel and look this good and comfortable!

    I suppose its just too bad for me as I believe that while men look their best in suits, women look their best in dresses…yet I must wear suits, so thank you for helping me pick up some ideas!

    Is this the wonderfully chic ?Japanese-Italian man you have photographed before?

    I’m sorry if this is off-topic, but to Anonymous suit-sufferer: why not approach buying suits as though they are dresses? I mean choose one that mirrors the shape of your favourite dress. I’m guessing you might like a suit with a defined waist, for starters.

    Three shades of pale grey. The camel coat. The dark glasses and hair. And the crisp white of the shirt. It is simply perfect.
    But there is something about him that reminds me of the wonderful guy you photographed several days ago in a plaid something with a marvelous laugh…
    He came right out through the camera…Am I wrong?

    have to say, not the biggest fan of double-breasted, perfectly cut, wide lapel suits, as they have been around for a while, so nothing new there (aviators, and peeping chief included).

    it’s unfortunate that the best part of the ensemble, the always classic beige 3/4 topcoat, is merely an accessory here.

    I believe you’ve photographed this gentleman before, and he’s never failed to impress. However, I did notice that he’s buttoned his DB suit in an unusual way — typically, the middle-right button is the only one fastened — yet it looks so natural on him, I didn’t notice it on first glance. The suit truly is impeccably tailored, and his subtle accessories work perfectly. Bravo!

    Amazing suit. Interesting to see that he has the “wrong” button buttoned, but the jacket holds together also partly from the hidden mid-button. Nicely done! I also like the generous-sized pocket flaps. Would also like to know how he made his trousers lengthwise.

    I like: the cut of the arm holes, slender sleeves, close at the waist, ticket pocket, and above all the back of the tie peeking out.

    I DO LOVE THIS DEPICTION OF A MODERN DAY DANDY, THOUGH I HASTEN TO ADD ITS SLIGHTLY TOO ´OVERDONE´IN THE SENSE ITS ALL WAY TOO SMOOTH AND CONTRIVED AND A LITTLE BIT ON THE MUTED GREY-BLAND SIDE, WITH NAY A ROUGH EDGE IN SIGHT.

    SAYS WHO YOU CAN´T MIX THE ROUGH WITH THE SMOOTH?! A SPLASH OF COLOUR WOULD HAVE DONE WONDERS OVERALL , ME THINK!

    I’m gonna have to try the grey on grey look. Very smooth.

    Love the cut of the suit. Close through the body and arms. But from the length of the arms, not one of those ridiculous Pee Wee Herman suits. Also loving the grey with the camel coat.

    But the haricut, beard and aviators are a kinda porn star.

    Yes of course, great cut, great fit, wonderful shade of gray and everything, but…Isn’t there a little bit too much of that ‘m’as-tu vu’(Look at me! look at me!) attitude which makes one a bit too self conscious and somehow a put off…My feeling.

    The suit fits impeccably, his aviators are perfect, great tie, great tonal match. I wish I had that polo coat in his hand. I bet that is just as captivating. He wanted everyone to see that great suit. Great shot, Sart!

    Done in a Simon (AI) english voice: This really is an impeccable fit but this gentleman is beginning to bore me a little – he is always wearing sharp double breasted #’s in his photos. Don’t get me wrong – he pulls it off and he looks amazing, but this look is much too easy to carry when you have a great tailor and you weigh in at approx a buck forty -Where’s the SPREZZATURA? The creativity? Aside from the bottom button on his jacket being done up (a flaw? rather than sprezzatura).

    A few here seem to think he needs a haircut, but to me, that is such a big part of his look. He looks slightly arrogant, and I mean that in a good way. I can imagine him strutting down the street, all eyes on him. He looks so confident.

    Many of you are calling tone on tone the fact that the tie is about the same color as the suit. This is NOT tone on tone.

    The term tone on tone refers to a printed fabric that is made by combining different shades and tones of the same color. Tone on tone fabrics often appear to be solid when viewed from a distance, but their printed motifs become recognizable on closer inspection.

    I love everything about this suit. The wide peaked lapels. The small armhole with slim arm. Also the flannel cloth on a double breasted, give the suit a whole different look. Obviously the shape is stunning, but i think its more the fabric textures than the colours that make this look what it is.
