    Oh how I love that collar! The hat would be better in wool, given the time of year & the suit fabric. Wish we could see the rest of him…the cut of the pants, his shoes.

    To Scott P: This was probably one of the freaky warm December days we’ve been getting lately. Either that or Sart held out this pic from the warmer months. I like the cut of the suit from what I can see

    No, I don’t get it. It’s just the wrong collar for the suit. And the tie seems to want to be worn with a morning suit.

    Call me conservative but wearing a tuxedo shirt (or at least one similar to it) to a suit and adding a tie in the mix, as well as that hat. That just does not look right. (especially since the hat and the tie are too black for the suit)

    Wrong hat, right idea. But I now want to go emulate this look exactly. Perfection. Especially the peaked lapels.

    Kudos to him on creativity/bravery.

    I would like to see him try it with a higher gorge on the jacket (or a waistcoat – double-breasted?), and a felt fedora instead.

    Wooo. Just lovely. The collar is a unique element.

    He calls to mind ska, both the Jamaican in the 50′s and the revivalists of the 80′s.

    Question: Does anyone know where I can find a casual stylish ankle length skirt? I’ve got a friend who’s an amputee (got one leg, she uses crutches or occasionally a prosthetic leg). She needs lots of long skirts to wear as an everyday staple (for everything from a casual dinner out to going to the market) as we wear jeans. Any suggestions?

      ** London – Saw a girl wearing a full long skirt in red with an oversized white sleeveless TShirt with flats. She had a scarf knotted 1920s style holding her hair back. The proportions were lovely.

    i’d love to see more wing collars. its very early 1900′s and makes me think of well dressed men with tall, starched collars and ornate neckties.

    @Anon 11:09 LOL! Well as a defunct member of the “diversity council” let me just say this is more my speed!

    Sart I have to find that shirt, were you able to get where this guy got his from?

    Also the horizontal stripes for the tie are dope!
    @Anon 11:57 what is a “morning suit?” Don’t you put a suit on and wear it all day? or do people really change their suit depending on the time of day? seems a bit ridiculous IMO but then, I’m a college student.

    As for the hat, he probably picked it because he likes it, not necessarily because of the weather. That shirt, that shirt, that shirt!!!!

    The hat is growing on me. The right thing about the hat is that the broad black of the hat band reflects the horizontal line of the tie peeking from under the wing collar.

    “Hmmm, straw hat in winter? A bit of a mistake, I think.”

    I would understand this comment if the photo was taken in, say, Canada for example – but I don’t see what is inappropriate about his choice here. It looks nice.

    the collar reminds me of how varvatos pops the collars on his models and makes them just look winged, but i dont think they really are.

    also, about the hat being straw in the winter. i just recently read a quote from some italian tailor who was talking about wearing a linen blazer in the winter with a cashmere tie and wool pants. he said he wears the ‘summer’ blazer then as to remind himself that the summer will be here soon enough. theres no need to follow ‘the rules’.

    after a few years of ties being “out” it’s nice to see them coming back! The tie-less suit only worked for very few and the rest looked like they hadn’t finished dressing. Even better if “fancy” collars become the go! I think we are moving to a late dix-neuvieme century look with this and all the beards on the guys posted recently.

    Rude Bwoy!

    The hat is classic Rudie stylings circa 1960s Jamaica.
    They were more about 3 button lapels than 2 (as am I) but this guy looks Sharp…

    I wonder if people have figured out that your photos don’t always correspond to the current season of the cities in which they were taken.

    It was really warm the past couple of days here in NYC but I think this photo is from your archives.
    Am I correct?

    Feeling this guys style 100 percent btw.

    Oh, How about those Obama pics in the post today?

    I still think the hat is a bit of a mistake. Especially when the same company makes their “Stroll” hats which have the same sillouette, but are cloth instead of straw.

    The fact that it’s dark does lessen the impact of the straw a little bit, however. You need to look at it up close to see it’s straw.

    I’m all for wearing straw hats in spring and even early fall. But it just doesn’t seem that right in wintertime (tropical climates excluded, of course).

    What a fine looking man. The suits fits perfectly and I love the wing collar dressed down with the tie. This guy certainly knows his fashion. Leave the hat alone, I think it finishes off his look. The suit and shirt are both Reiss. I bought the suit in the Sale last weekend. Great discounts!

    Does this mean that we’re about to return to an era when men had dozens of collar styles from which to choose at their local haberdashery? Please, please, please.

    Monique (Anon 12:37) – 7 gore skirts are not too hard to make. Your friend should get them made for her. A good maker will be able to evaluate her stance and gait and assure that the width and length of the skirt are flattering and not cumbersome.

    Something is just not right. Maybe its the wing collar shirt.Spread collar would have been a better choice.

    The suit is good–the recent revival of peaked lapels has seen too few tasteful examples. The combination of the casual hat with the peaked lapels and peculiarly-shaped wing collar, however, is dissonant. It’s a likable outfit, but I would advise a good homburg or fedora next time.
