A different tie would’ve helped. As would a more dashing pocket square. To me, I see somebody experimenting with his confidence levels. Right now, it looks like he was confused leaving the house – not really confident he could pull off the job right but ready to try something different.
wow, i REALLY REALLY dislike this look. I’m a big fan of daring trouser/jacket combinations but this one is completely off. This photo almost looks just like the one you took of him months ago (which I didnt like his look back then), but it’s like somebody clicked on his trousers and turned it rust orange in photoshop. It almost doesnt look real. I like the trousers by themself tho, they would go well with quite a few items in my closet.
By leaving out the brass/metal buttons, we’ve made blazers more versatile. They have become more business-like, while remaining casual. A blazer like this one, worn with trousers or jeans, looks stylish and professional. There is still room for classic navy blazers with shiny buttons: at the club, or, with jeans or charcoal worsteds.
This guy could be headed to a party, to close that deal, or cover a shoot. That’s versatility…and style.
