    This picture has something that is hard for me to put my finger on. Is it the knitted tie? Is it his sunglasses? Maybe the plaited belt? The leather bracelet??
    Or…is it simply the fact that he has a resemblance of Iceman in Top Gun!?
    Loved that movie.

    I like him. Iceman in knitted tie.

    The tie, jacket and pants combination is on target but I’m not so sure about the shirt. The fabric looks cheap and, moreover, button-down shirts are ment to be worn without tie and jacket.
    They are a casual garment that shall be matched with a v-neck sweater, a cardigan or just worn without anything above (if the weather is mild).

    Having said that, the picture per se is stunning!

    …a tie you don’t see everyday. and that no-nonsense expression on his face (plus that mean hairstyle), makes the entire look serious and playful at the same time.

    The knit tie makes this look for me. I think it adds an element of interest and texture to something that would be more traditional without it.

    I was in middle school and high school in the 70s and there was a science teacher who only wore knitted ties or skinny ties. In the context of the wide ties and butterfly collars that were the norm then, his style looked hopelessly out of step. But now when I see pictures of him in my yearbook, he’s the only one who doesn’t look like a big clown because he found a classic style that suited him and stuck to it. Your subject has the same timeless quality, but the saturated colors are what draws the eye. Love his hair and sunglasses, too.

  64. IS THIS IT? models review

    September 19, 2011 at 10:15 am

    Personally, not a super-fan of this kind of “Classic American Sportswear” combination… btw, I’d change the shirt or the tie (which singularly I pretty like – the tie especially in fact!).

    A tie points to the male sex enhancing the masculinity that way; especially when you can guess what’s underneath the trousers in such a ‘splicit’ way like in the example above. Regardless of the beauty of the tie or the outfit. That’s why everyone loves this photograph. Good shot Mr Schuman.

    I like the shot but as another poster mentioned, not a fan of a button down collar/tie combo. But I have to say, it seems to work here. I don’t get men wearing bracelets either. A watch is enough for any mans wrist. I guess I’m old school. I am curious about what kind of shoes he was wearing as well.

    This whole look is rocking. I think what works best, in my opinion, is the fit. Everything fits just right. Also, the shades…(not talking about the sunglasses, although those are cool too, but the hues) the colors, not to mention the textures of the tie, belt and even wrist bracelet, are perfectly harmonious.

    A few things making this photograph work: 1) the man is tall, thin, and gorgeous, so the knit tie and braided belt (which may have looked frumpy on someone else) look trim and stylishly retro; 2) the thin lapels make the allusion to the early 60s more successful; and 3) and most important, the bright red arrows in the right background key up the image by pointing to the man’s fashion success, rhyming with the red of the tie, and generally keying up the energy of the figure. Really nice picture.
