He definitely looks comfortable in a suit. For my tastes, the waist of that suit is too high, and makes his torso look disproportionally short. I prefer a more modern cut with a slightly lower waist line. Not talking hip huggers or anything so extreme, but not that high.
Again I ask, where is the female counterpoint to him? Someone this age and equally chic. Would she wear the fetish high heels? I don't think so. Where are the non-fashion career women who could match this sartorially.
scott stop kidding yourself this IS how you look in a suit! After meeting you in SF I realized I didn't even thank you for dealing with that line and making everyone feel like we were friends, if only for a second. You looked AMAZING, and thank you for doing what you do!
i would like to see some cuff, otherwise, nicely cut pinstripe suit. can't tell if he's wearing a belt or not. my guess is not, since the waist is high enough where a belt is not necessary if the pants actually fit. and i like his 'stach!
that's the difference between a man that appreciates the art of wearing a suit as opposed to another who wears one because he has to. we are accustomed to seeing business men in ill-fitting suits who can't wait to get home and jump into a pair of board shorts. The Milanese instead appreciates the art of wearing one and the love that goes behind making a well-cut suit.
If you notice the front shirt collar and the profile of the shoulder to neck line on the suit flow perfectly. Its really unusual and makes it look really clean. w/o that Ikea thing. I really like it but can only assume it was a coincidence that a fashionable man has happen to him. Well done!
1. Is his shirt truly white? It looks less bright than his pocket square, which is defintiely white and defintiely a ncie touch. 2. The jacket fits very nicely across the shoulders. He should be flashing a bit of shirt cuff. 3. A rolled Italian newspaper makes a great accessory.
"This is how I want to look in a suit." Me too! And you do look good in a suit. I only wish, in the last couple of pictures I've seen of you in a suit, that you'd worn it with a tie.
I once got a complement by a lady when trying on a suit. If felt very good (the complement, and the suit). If more ladies told their men that they look good in a suit, you'd see a lot more suit wearing men these days.
Ok, I've been thinking about this some more (probably way too much). The reason in my previous comment I wish you'd worn a tie in your pictures, besides the general excellence and coolness of neckties, is that it completes a suit and gives it a more polished and finished look. I'm not against wearing suits and jackets with open necked shirts. That look has its place and it often looks very good, but I think ties are underrated. I think a tie elevates a man's outfit the way adding certain ingredients elevate a dish. Even in the current trendy style of ties worn straightened or loosely with jeans ( and I really like that style, long may it last) it adds another dimension (a "dressy" element with virile undertones) to a casual or semi-casual look, plus all the other benefits a tie gives to a man's outfit (framing the face, adding a strong vertical line, etc.) whether the outfit is dressy or casual.
I think the tie is a key reason the gentleman in the picture looks so good. Its simplicity conveys confidence and its solid color bespeaks strength. It enhances his shirt, complements and mirrors the pinstripes, the silhouette of the jacket and folds of its fabric. It unifies his clothing, drawing all the elements together (including the watch, the pocket square, even the folded newspaper) to the center. It then draws the eyes up to his face, with the knot as an exclamation point. It tells the onlooker "Here I am. I am a Man".
A great photography. He(she) still has the suit perfect, narrow and exact, the length of the tie and the neck of the shirt are perfect. In all the photographies that this gentleman goes out, the look is always perfect.
If you love this image, maybe you love it because it's a classic look. Wide lapels, high waisted trousers, slim sleeves – it's the Hollywood golden age of Cary Grant, Gary Cooper and Bogart.I hope every year that this look is on the way back in, for good.
He looks great. Would love a bit of cuff to top it off.
