i like this pic because i’m looking for a way to jazz up the regular look too. i look great today. great dress pants, and a really well cut italian dress shirt, beautiful. impeccable shoes. and i look a lot like every other schmuck in line at the starbucks this morning.
the tie’s too long, but its interesting. the pants…they’re not for me, but they’re interesting. i thing the strongest thing here is the pin stripe. this is just a great look. maybe like you said, its the charm. this is well done.
Great personality. Very charming, but the proportions seem a little off for me. Maybe it is an optical illusion of sorts due to the tie-tucking, but it seems like his torso is a little short, or his trousers a little too high. But I certainly was not looking at those when all I could focus on for a while was his beautiful smile.
What a way to define yourself. this is no ordinary outfit. I really do believe it is always good to step out of line when it come to menswear, but it also depends how you do it. This guy has done 8 so perfectly.
Beautiful…just beautiful. The twinkling eyes and the gorgeous warm smile are making my knees weak. Now HE is a man! I too, am tempted to wander the streets of nolita until we “accidentally” bump into each other…lol! Sart, job well done on this one.
1) by my count twenty-five of the replies (out of 35 so far) are ebout how cute gorgeous & dreamy the guy is, and a total of five actually discuss what he’s wearing (the other 5 didn’t seem to fall into either category). I think that says something.
2) in what way do the tucked-in tie & sansabelts look better on this guy than on anybody else? I’m afraid I’m not seeing anythimg different here myself.
What I love about this is I keep reading and hearing men say, “Thank god it is summer!” Meaning more womens’ skin to see. Well the opposite is also true! There is something about a man in summer even dressed for work like this, sleeves rolled up to reveal toned forearms and the smile, the smile of spring! So beautiful. Men, the ladies are looking.
In Britain pants with side adjusters are the norm for bespoke. After you get used to the look and feel it is hard to return to the belt. Belts seem too casual, signal “off the rack” (ok for jeans or chinos but not for a suit) and seem to visually break the body line too much, making you look shorter.
Tie tucks are necessary when the tie is too long for the body size, so typical of short men that do not get ties made. In my opinion it is fine (even cute) with monochrome woven silk or cashemir ties but not silk printed ones. Also begs the question of how deep do they go!
What I love about this look is that he has low contrast in his shirt and tie which are the same colour as the pin stripe in his trousers so we’re struck first by the handsome face. Then we look back down to his outfit and see the little differences i.e. tie tuck and think this is a guy who likes to think out of the box. I think that clothes are meant to make us look at the person first and “get” them through the subtle differences in style. He has done this beautifully…
Judging by the length of the tie I suspect he has a disturbingly small (given the spread collar he is sporting) tie knot hiding underneath his hand. Also notice the narrow end of the tie poking out from behind.
Can’t make an overall style judgment without seeing the shoes. Handsome man though.
