    That pale brown/tan color is perfect for this guy's hair and beard color. And the slightly rumpled looks of the wrinkles works oddly well for him!

    I saw this guy in the Tate. The first time I passed him I said out loud to a friend that he was a famous person, and he winked at me. Then I saw him again and it looked like he was writing down every name from a huge list of famous artists on a wall near the escalators. He looked exactly the same except he was rocking a blue blazer, some rolled up khakis and I think some sneakers. His head is truly large, and it doesn't help that he is actually rather short.

    I don't mind natural wrinkles in fabric, but the sleeves look forced and trying to hard wrinkled. He's still quite a dapper guy though.


    July 25, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    His jacket's wrinkled. I love his attire. It's so masculine-o-chic.

    You've featured him before, haven't you? I like his style.

    The good:
    1. The shades
    2. The beard (I hope the trend lasts, I wish his was a little trimmer though)
    3. The hair (nice length, & guys look good in slick styles, as the vintage photos prove)
    4. The colors (suit, tie, shirt, etc. They suit his face, his hair color, the background and the sunny day.)
    5. The tie
    6. The tie/shirt color combo (I like the whole tone-on-tone thing, even if it's not cool to like it)
    5. The double-breasted suit
    6. His profile
    7. His attitude

    The IMO not-so-good:
    1. The wrinkles (sorry, just a little too much)
    2. The cut of the suit (a little too baggy for my taste, though in my world there would be room for all type of cuts: slim/skinny, wider/more relaxed, etc.)

    The interesting:
    1. His tie is slim and his lapels are wide. That goes against conventional advice (i.e. match tie and lapel width) but here it works. Maybe matching the tie color to the shirt helps.

    Sorry for rambling. Great blog!

    I don't care for this shade of brown in the summer. Autumn-yes. Spring-yes. Summer-no.

    Leaves are waaaaaaaay too wrinkled. They look like tobacco leaves.

    Suit jacket looks ill-fitting.

    His beard looks too hot (as in temperature-wise, not coolness) for this time of year.

    Compelling shot…the light gleaming off his hair is spectacular…but, there's something wacky about this image. Maybe it's his remarkably large head, accentuated by the cropped up the nape hair cut, contrasted by a rather petite body and hands. I don't find the wrinkled suit nearly as off-putting as the distractingly dark buttons.

    He Looks like a caricature drawn on (very crumpled)brown paper.

    Personal opinion, but i'm not sure this look works – the shirt and tie look far too formal for the suit, and the glasses look a little too thick rimmed for my liking.

    The thing about comments though are that they are one's own personal thoughts – one man's brown bag, is another mans personal statement

    Love the wrinkly fabric of the suit–it's perfect for a hot, humid summer day & looks great with the classic shirt and pale tie, and he's sharp enough that the look is clearly intentional. The fabric would look even better and summery-er, though, deployed in a single-breasted jacket with lighter buttons (preferably worn open).

    I think that tightening the line of the beard (specifically by shaving the neck & bringing the cheek line down a bit) would highlight his features & balance the above-the-neck proportions a bit better.

    A very pleasing combination. Nice to see a fellow beard wearer too, even though I keep mine like Simone's. That full set looks way too hot for a summer in Paris.

    Just a pity the gentleman appears to know neither his suit size nor how to use an iron. It has however let me hear my ex-Royal Navy officer father's voice in my memory when he was still hale.

    I've posted before on this, but probably a couple of years ago. I'm fine with wrinkles, and I think the fashion world and thus fashion followers are way too wrinkle avoidant. As a wrinkled linen wearer (I think it's stupid to iron a linen shirt/blouse and wrinkle it within seconds of putting it on), I've noticed disapproving stares. Luckily, I'm old enough to shine that all on.

    that many wrinkles aren’t an accident or an oversight. they’re his statement, and it’s a bold one, and i like it. it’s a successful counterpoint to what would be an uptight and too formal look if the suit was perfectly ironed. it’s practiced nonchalance and iconoclasm–an expensive suit worn wrinkled flouts convention. the wrinkles and the beard add texture. it’s not a look for a conservative office, but perfect for walking through the Louvre. if i saw him there i’d look at him more than the pictures. it’s a confident, fun, and unique look.
