    Dark shirt with suit, hmm. I’m with Clemenza: “Leave the gun. Take the cannolis.”

    I guess this is like a “Classic Fit?” It’s uncommon to see such loose fitting suits these days what with all the peacocks strutting in their slim fits (wink)

    Such refinement and elegance. Dries is the best.

      The style is like those of the 1940s to 1950s, correct me if I’m incorrect. I think this fellow is a Sartorialist semi-regular. He looks refined each time.

    now, see, if i saw him walking towards me in a garden i would think two things:

    1) covet the suit. must have the suit.

    2) where the hell is david lynch when you need him?

    Actually his suit is loose in a nice way.Elegant. But this guy has too much hair on his head. A new haircut could do the world of difference.

    I love the fact that you show both women and men. Many street fashion sites are very women-focused.

    Thanks for that! :)

    I really don’t get it. The trouser looks extremely large. The trouser does not fit the jacket. (fashion Victim)

    Great hair. Too much material in the pants. Would’ve been better plain not pleated.

    Hmmmm. Well. Not so sure–not sure at all–that you can do the shorter jacket thing with a DB cut without it looking clownish on. And the very full pants don’t help matters.

    I have NEVER seen anyone look good in a double breasted suit. It tends to overwhelm a slim frame, like in this photo, or make a rotund person look fat.

    The cut and fit here looks a little like 1950s Charlie Chaplin. Give him a hat and a cane and he’s ready to go.

    Usually the terms “three-button double-breasted” and “pleated pants” send shivers down my spine (and not the good kind, either), but this chap manages to pull of the look quite well. And the hair’s great, too! -the DCGF

    love the double breast and pleats, but wish it it just a touch trimmer.

    but i’m probably half his age, so that’s subjectivity at its finest

    I always love your backdrops but this one was particularly beautiful.The clothes as always are lovely too.

    Funny, Landis had a similar association…
    great minds eh?

    I love the drape going on here. It’s so close to being off, and it’s still right on!

    Sorry, I guess don’t get Dries. In my opinion this is not close to being a sartorial look. One would consider this high fashion. The look has no saying power.(Fashion victim) Somewhere between Dries and Thom Browne theres the perfcet fit(look)

    OMYGAWD…He looks so Dashing!!! I wish to high heaven i could pull off pleated pants like that. That suits just kills. Of course, I’d smack my granny (bless her departed soul) for a head of hair like his!!!

    Ah, very nice. It’s so refreshing to see a man in a suit that actually *fits* and not the Pee-Wee style that far too many has fallen for.

    Very 80s. Very boring. Uninspired.

    I’m torn.

    Perhaps Stevie Nicks has sent her ‘Stand Back: The Video’ dancer minion to Dries Van Noten to perform witch majic.

    Perhaps Paul Mercurio is repurposing that ‘Strictly Ballroom’ wardrobe.

    If the crotch was lower I’d torture you with a MC Hammer quote.

    I don’t like it.

    A very thick hair, it looks in a way robust, and it suits very fine to his masculine and sturdy shape of face

    Aside from the large-haired, well-suited gentleman…
    may I just say that the Dries show…
    the Dries show!!!!
    I am in love with it.
    In LOVE.

    I think he looks great! Few Men can wear that no path hair style.
    I think it works for him.

    This look is dated on an older man such as him. That said, still a chic suit.

    Great photo.

    He looks good but I much more like a d-b suit on older men – preferably in tweed…

    I think the suit fits beautifully. Love the total-suit drape.

    Lots interesting ideas here! I like the trouser break, and the jacket is kind of brilliant. For some reason I think of YSL’s Le Smoking when I focus on him from the waist up!

    I usually oppose double-breasted suits, but this guy definitely has a look, and he works it.

    Perfect, very fine: Any contrary comment is pure envy (cout of hair included -and I don’t bold absolutely-): Risky, but the elegance must be brave and quiet, and he go very relaxed as he go. I only have problem with the color of shirt and the buttons size of jacket: But elegance itsn’t synonymous of correction. His appearance is correct and subversive while.
