Another Seriously Nipped Waist Jacket

I love how Mory often makes his suits seem more casual by layering a knit underneath.

    Mr. Mory always shines. I really like this image, especially the way you have used a shallow depth of field in a bright, colorful photo. Your camera captures the color in the background nicely, so that while the sharpness of the figure makes him the focus, he remains integrated with the rest of the image. I think you have done the same thing in some of your shots in that Paris park with the converging lines of trees. Nice…

    I like the cut of his jib.

    Depth of field is great! It makes him POP so much more :)

    Well, the layering has also put stress of the jacket so it spans at the button.

    Though I appreciate the intention, a more generously cut jacket, or one cut along different lines would have done the trick.

    Doesn’t look as “nipped” as the gentleman earlier this week.

    Mory has seriously thought this outfit out in terms of picking up the color.

    Amazing! He always looks so good. I love the bright color he has chosen to layer. It just pops. He really knows what looks good on him. Delicious.

    This is a fab look and it looks somehow less nipped than the previous suit, which I found a little over-nipped.

    Love the coral knit underneath–gives the suit a funky feel. Great glasses too.

    Beautiful. I think in a previous post someone commented that they thought this waist might be a bit ‘feminine’. on the contrary though, men DO have waists and its so very sexy and sharp to highlight it. SO many men these days opt to hide their bodies (even when they have bodies they SHOULD be showing off), or dont realise that a well cut garment will enhance their shape even if it isn’t perfection (and whose is?)

    He looks great! I love the color of his sweater, how he coordinates it with the pinstripes & glasses, and how the collar is so perfect.

    And the background is amazing!

    This man looks unbelievable! The pop of colour under the suit takes it from great suit to great outfit. WOW.

    I agree with anon…nice depth of field. But what’s with the brightness? It looks like lots of bounce, even studio lights. Reminds me of Trent Parke’s work, but up-close and more personal.

    So fabulous. And you’re exactly right about the knit.

    God, I’ve got to get my boyfriend in pinstripes.

    Are his trousers cuffed? I can’t quite tell from the photo.

    I love the pop of color with the suit against his skin. Very striking…

    Looking Good.
    Eredi has to get it together service wise though.
    I ordered some trousers from them last spring – they got two in, one in the wrong color.
    Still waitng for the third pair – that was last spring.
    I hate the fact that I have to chase them.
    I basically gave up as “file under lesson learned” and have not gone back….

    I’m liking the nipped waist, and perhaps while this isn’t as nipped as the previous photo, I think what made the previous more “feminine” was the way the suit curved around the body near the hips. Perhaps it is the more masculine angularity balanced against the waist that makes it work?

    anon 11:13am,

    this doesn’t seem to be as feminine, but i thought the comment was appropriate on the other gent with his curves showing. i’m looking for that kind of thing in a sporty casual jacket, less boxy, and more tailored. this one works in a suit. i like it.

    When men nip at the waist they have to be careful … there’s a fine line between nipped at the waist & a feminine silhouette.

    I challenge anyone to say this super-nipped in waist looks effeminate! Go Mory!
    Personally, I hate that salmon color, though it–and the light–certainly pop.
    There were a couple of lovely bright days here that would have given this light. Alas, they seem to have retreated again. : (

    Great color choice, and I love the suit (although, that poor button). How do you think one would acheive the same ‘dressing down’ of the suit on a warmer day?

    To anon 11:13: since I said the last one was ‘feminine’, I feel the need to add: I loooove clothes that emphasize the classic male shape – broad shoulders, narrow hips. Well cut, and closely cut, suits are particularly fantastic at making the best of the shape of a man. This one is a perfect example. The last one, I feel, made the man look a little hip-y. It wasn’t the waist emphasis, it was the ass emphasis . . . Not for me. Now, that’s just my taste. And not every man is trying to appeal to me (lord knows!).

    Mory has that certain “je ne sais quoi” evidenced by the flair with which he pairs any outfit he wears.

    Now what’s the average price of a suit at Eredi?

    The white pocket square was a good choice too – especially since the pinstripes and glasses already pick up on the knit under the blazer, having that touch of white to tie the cuff and collar together was wise.

    Love this look and the color combination. I think the jacket is a bit too small, though.

    great shot, FANTASTIC lens! i don’t know why but somehow it reminds me of philip lorca di corcia… could be the shallow depth (or boke as we say)

    …a knit that just so happens to perfectly match the pinstripe.
