Good god, I love that blazer! Normally I don't like prints other than plaids, tweeds and the like but this just rocks! I also love how he keeps it in one color family too, something I plan on doing more in the fall
This is my first comment on a photo of yours and I have been following for a very long time – This guy is one upping everyone and everything – pattern mix, color combinations, tie, then throwing everyone out the window with the large alligator folder and vintage frames. Would have loved to see his shoes and cropping of the pants. Sharp, well planned, light, calm, and classy.
What a gorgeous jacket! And so well coordinated with the tie and pants. The white handkerchief in his breast pocket adds another dimension to the jacket. A very nice photograph, with the man framed by the green landscaping in the background, and a touch of color coordinated sidewalk.
I just wanted to share my observation that Asian men tend not to associate their sense of style and fashion with their masculinity (or lack of). To them (us – yes I am of asian descent) its a form of freedom of expression and feeling good about one's self.
This gentleman definitely says it all with his expression, smile and stance – oh and of course his choice of garb for the day!!!
ah yes, far more successful than the pattern mix of the young lady. the patterns weren't bad but I found the overall look really sloppy. scott, you often ask us gals what we think of X or Y on a guy….I'd like to ask guys: do you really find it attractive to see a bra peering out of a garment that was not meant to feature the bra? Or do find it sloppy? Let's not get into whether she's a babe or not; just the general sartorial aesthetic. thanks! –haapi
I wish I could go back in time and go shopping with him when he bought this. Did he say, "YES, I WANT IT?" or did he try it on a bunch of times and hesitate and finally give in. Or did he have it made to order? I think he looks like a designer or architect so he probably had it made.
Despit the jacket pattern, what really catches my eye is the tie and the bag. It breaks up the image in a complimenting way to the rest of his wear.
I did not however notice the pocket unit Marquis had mentioned and do agree in the suggestion of a change. But maybe not particularly to the color. I think the kerchief could be done in the appropriate size to create less bulge.
The mixed pattern size between the jacket and trousers works really well; however, the tie is not adding value. I love knit ties but while this tie is a solid the texture of the weave creates the effect of a small pattern, which clashes with the small patern of the trousers. I feel that a silk tie of the same color would have worked better for this fine chap.
Wow, the man with the beautiful crocodile bag is bag and looking great. He really has a love for and a knack for mixing patterns and gets it right. I want to know who he is because he definitely has elegance and style. I hope to continue seeing him.
I love the whole look! I think his glasses really add something to it. Like a little hint of nerdy to go with his sophistication. You didn't mention the tie! The texture of the tie totally plays off the jacket. I really am loving this look, along with the slim sleeves.
Wow, there's so much going on; the great bag (texture and colour), the retro styled jacket and the knit tie and pants. Not really my look as I am more conservative, but I really appreciate what's he's done.
It is quite fetching, but I've got a problem with suits in the summertime. Sure you've got to look business-like at times, but isn't there a better solution than a jacket? Makes me uncomfortable just looking at it. He looks cool, but that can't last all day.
I love this look! All his pieces individually look like great pieces i.e. his jacket, shirt, tie, pants, bag and are all of the same tonal palette which is why it works so well when they are all used together.
There are looks like this where you notice where you notice the patterns seperately as unique pieces but then as you take a look at the whole ensemble and it's a whole other thing. I like the juxtapositioning of the patterns.
