Notice the covered buttons on the jacket.

    Oh dear, why is everyone complaining about the pant length? It’s perfect, in fact it’s the focal point of the whole outfit, those shoes are taken to new levels with that peek of ankle, beautiful, bold use of brown, excellent hair/beard action too…the whole pic reminds me of that (almost) antique beige italian suit you featured last year…

    I’m baffled that people think this is an acceptable substitute for wearing a tie. If you’re going with a 3pc. suit, why would you then bend over backwards to casual it up? And why do some people think that buttoning one’s shirt up all the way like Dilbert looks ‘relaxed’? I guess if he added a pocket protector, these folks would start making JFK-on-the-beach comparisons! This man needs a tie and a pocket square; a well-chosen tie could convey fun and relaxation a lot better than this Ahmedinejad-style move.

    I wish he wore a tie or something on his neck. Too much brown with nothing to contrast it with leaves it feeling incomplete. But great find, nonetheless.

    The white shirt makes the brown suit sing–as Ronald Reagan practiced to great effect. And a constructed linen suit looks much sharper than some of the unconstructed ones I’ve seen flopping around.

    I didn’t know Dennis Miller went to Italy … :)

    Huuuuuuuuuuuge linen fan, and I love a brown suit too, so this is pretty much a “go get one of these made” photos (just with longer pants … )

    to me this man has style. first, he decided NOT to wear a tie and then button his shirt all the way to the top. second, linen is a beautiful fabric and that’s a pretty cool colour. third, he’s NOT wearing socks…YIPPPEE! this man scores the big one my fashion checklist!! he’s understated, current, and looking good.

    I don’t like very much brown colour, but with Robert all colours are ok!!!
    Beautiful linen suite and white shirt gives a lightness point. No tie is a good choice. Short pants are very cool (please read dandy).

    I love the look, but undo the top shirt button, and add some socks for this one.

    does anyone have a suggestion on where to find a cool 3-piece linen suit like this one? most linen suits i’ve seen are standard-type colors – khaki, white, light/pastel colors. i like the rich darker brown color…

    It’s not easy to look that casual in a 3-pc.

    I think he needs the pants in a bigger size. I like the old fashion suit look. All the guys look good. No matter what ;)

    problem is not with the pant or sleeves but with the fabric
