    Love the dusky gray and slim fit of the suit – reckon it’ll work for both dark- and light-haired types. Can’t help but notice the graphic black-edged pocket square… together with the darker shirt it binds the look.

    Would like to see a scarf that picks out the blue of the pocket square (rather than the gray).

    his hair! i covet his hair!
    i also covet his obvious comfort in this very fine outfit. this is natural for him. when it comes naturally, when this much style is second-nature, it’s so beautiful.

    Fantastic! So trad, yet so very, very hip. Is it the wonderful pocket square, the thing on his left wrist, the chain (so b-boy), the sleeve length, or all those little things together that take this lovely suit and scarf to another level? I guess I should expect nothing less from someone at a Costume show.

    I sorta wish he moved the book cuz I’m suspect another wicked detail is hiding under there.

    Wow, I love his style – from the cuff length to the pocket-watch he’s wearing it perfectly.

    Is that a McQueen scarf? I love how the skull print elevates the overall look

    i’m loving the cool irony, so trad yet so rebel at the same time.

    i love this entire look. from the suit, chain, skull scarf… to the moleskine notebook.

    Love the scarf on the gentleman. So chic. Nice fit on the jacket too.

    A desirable slim-cut suit in lovely greys again! This is impeccable tailoring: observe how the sleeves drape forwards without tugging on the armhole despite the narrowness.

    I disagree with Angela, a shot of color picking up the blue of his pocket square would have made the look predictable: the skull patterned scarf is perfectly cool.

    “The scarf -is- mcqueen. There’s also beige/maroon.”

    I think someone else said the gray/black scarf is mcqueen. I’m asking about the blue/white/gray pocket square. Did you mean to say scarf or square?

    It’s interesting that no one mentioned the cigarette after all the comments on the woman smoking one a while back. I wonder why?

    I saw this photo and loved it. Exquisite suit, sleeve length and hair style. But then I viewed the larger image of this and noticed the skulls on his scarf. I don’t get the whole “skull on clothing and acceesories” obsession, whether it’s McQueen or not. Kinda ruined it for me unfortunately.

    I think someone asked previously if the scarf was mcqueen but no one confirmed, so I did. No clue on the pocket ‘hanky’ though sorry.

    Yeah Belinda. I can see how seeing a skull motif can really put a crimp in one’s day! :D

    Loving the Alexander McQueen skull scarf. Overall look looks comfortable and sleek. Well done.

    the way the chain is draped across him is perfect.
