LIKE: Lovely classic pinstripe suit. The unicolor approach is well played. The “bedhead” haircut adds a modern touch. Love the simple white pocket square. It looks like he also did a Windsor knot on his tie which is perfect for his spread collar shirt.
I just wish you’d venture out into the other boroughs… and I don’t mean going to Williamsburg or Park Slope or Fort Greene. I mean, shit, come to Flatbush or the South Bronx or Astoria. It’s not all baggy jeans, fitted caps and Ups. And even if it is… some of these kids do amazing imaginitive things with colors and cuts. And they’re not referring to style magazines for the tips either ;)
Great DB. I dig the length, erring on the side of shorter, especially for a DB gives it a much younger feel. The strong slant on the high peak lapels are another nice touch. Emphasizes the shoulders, slims the waist. Cool beans.
I think this is the first landscape fashion shot I’ve ever seen on this blog X-D
hey, its the Domenico Vacca 5th Ave. manager! I love that he is wearing a double breasted suit. It frames the body perfectly, and creates a nice upward visual flow (peak lapels). This man should be a spokesperson for young people wearing double breasted suits! (why do we shy away from them?)
Impeccable! It’s not the first time that this guy is on this blog and even that time he looked spot-on. I think double-breasted suits are generally harder to pull of but on him it really looks effortless. Good tailoring obviously helps, but he looks great.
Am I the only one who also caught more than a glimpse of the guy wearing a caramel leather jacket in the background? I love that jacket, and his partner in the sunglasses also looks quite interesting- very nice mobile style indeed Sart.
Almost unfair this guy can dress so varied and well that he gets routinely featured on these pages. Does the shop he works in pay him so handsomely that he can buy their product – or is it provided to him? If so, hats off, because he may have one extremely privileged position. I keep believing that only the very savviest and wealthiest of men have the means and wherewithal to dress so…dare I say, highly. I’m not discounting the folks featured here that make style work with pieces that may have been salvaged or bought for a steal – man, I do that. But the material, the workmanship, and the attention to tailoring detail on this guy just screams $$$$. The rest of us have to be like Jude’s Alfie and blow a paycheck on one premium piece at a time. Guy in the DB suit (which is not my thing, but hey): if you’re reading this, count your lucky stars.
At first the young man in the very well-fitting suit caught my eye, but I am equally impressed with the my man in the leather jacket. It looks as if he has on black gloves with a brown jacket and a grey scarf. Not colors that I would have put together, but I like it here.
That is so F***ing COOL! I Know the Guy in the Orange coat! I’d know him anywhere with that coat, scarf, and stature… Went to college w/him.. he’s a brilliant graphic artist from St.Louis, and that blonde woman walking with him is his wife (of 2 years) from Germany! Wow!!!
Oh Yeah.. & the main guy in the shot is looking extremely dapper. No doubt… :-)
the more I look at this picture, the more I want to wear what the guy in the background is wearing … great!!
Mr. Suit is pretty cool too. I don’t own a DB suit but used to; it was cut with a lower V which annoyed me as my tie would flop out whenever I bent over (which is why I loved that 3-button suits came into fashion then … I guess that means that, yes, we’re talking 90s here).
I’ve not really seen too many DB suits available, and wondered what that was all about … and given the number of comments here from people who seem alergic to the DB, I guess it’s more unpopular than I thought. I’d love to get a couple DBs to mix things up, provided the buttons are high enough to prevent the aforementioned tie-flop (not a big fan of the tie clip, BTW) … hopefully this photo will bring a few people around to liking the DB, even if it means messing with that annoying inside backwards button.
He has an excellent cut on the suit, and wears the knot on the collar really well. The smaller knots exposing more of the tie around the neck really kills the image of these styles of shirt for me; glad to see him pull it off nicely.
