The jacket's double breast, wide lapels, and aggressive darting–particularly those crazy lapels–are not ideal for this gentleman's body size and shape. I really don't like the look; it is as if he is wearing someone else's jacket.
I think part of the problem here is that the inner part of the the coat (jacket) is not buttoned so the right lapel (our left) is dropping and making the width of the lapel over large. Apart from that, I think the fit is pretty good.
Ideal choice of color for the DB… and the tie really stands out, the choice of a white shirt is interesting as a very light blue would've worked great too. He looks comfortable too, something very important when sporting a DB.
now that is what I call a suit! Beautifully tailored, perfect fit, good quality fabrics… if only all suits could look like this… although it would make the morning commute a hell of a lot more boring as I wouldn't be able to indulge in the endless pleasure of dissecting the more hideous work outfits of fellow commuters…
LOVE a man who's not afraid to carry a 'manbag'. Takes style and balls. X
In a way, I agree with Robert that the look is slightly wacky and disproportionate. But I also admire his daring. Style often requires boldness, else blend into safe elegance. Here, the guy strikes me as confident and happy, with a contagious sense of humor.
I really like the double breasted trend showing up more and more this year. The big pinstripes go great with the very wide peak lapels! I'm usually iffy on lapels this big, but he gets it perfect here.
Very sharp indeed! This suit makes quite the statement, and as you said the tie does make the perfect foil, just perfect. I very much love his Croc briefcase. Wonderful shade of deep brown, burgundy? Not sure, doesn't matter. Perfection all the way and a beautiful smile to top it all off.
I am not sure I can see the attraction in either the suit or the tie. The suit is just a DB suit with the inner button unbuttoned, which forces one side to fold. For the tie / suit combination: perhaps the picture does not do justice to the colors or a picture of just that detail would have been more helpful?
Beautiful fabric and cut. a bit wide on the lapels, perhaps dates it to the 30's. Otherwise, totally flawless: tie, shirt collar, pocket square,vintage croc "portfolio" (its not an oversized purse?)I search men's store racks for this color chalkstripe, and wish Sart. has more information on suit, is it custom? Burberry? Lauren purple? Oxxford? Help! Anybody?I want it.
I agree the tie is genius – very subtly echoing the color in the buttons, and of the purse. What amazes me most is that he succeeds in making this harsh a pinstripe look smart. He has the perfect slender build for it. Beautiful man, beautiful smile, beautiful style.
Now realise this could be Rubinacci suit? I hear Milano is around 30C,92F+ recently, if this is a typical, light wool/silk Rubinacci with miminal lining it could work in Miami! When is their online store opening?
im not the biggest fan of stripes within suits but when its done this elegantly along with the beautiful tailoring it can't be refused. thank you for making me change my mind on striped suits at least for now.
I don't know how he picked out this tie, but it does work, subtly metallic somehow, same as buttons. Also, it picks up on the croc man bag. He gives the whole suit a twist by using that tie, otherwise he might look like a banker.
it would look better if he would button the suit properly on the inside. if he did that on purpose, it looks affected. if he did that accidentally, it looks off. either way it detracts from an otherwise well-made suit with awesome material. tie is nice but what is really cool about it is it looks to have a texture to it. needs stays or stiffer stays in his collar though, especially with a db suit. nice reptile, though…
What a great smile! I love the lines around his eyes, it's a face that hints at a lot of laughter. I like the colour combo of the bag and the suit, and the exquisite attention to detail, but it's the smile that takes it forward.
This gentleman is impeccably stylish in the wonderfully tailored suite. It's so refreshing to see the return of the classic double breasted jacket. Now I feel like watching "The Thin Man " with William Powell.
