    He resembles François Truffaut’s muse Jean-Pierre Laud, and while she’s channeling some Ali MacGraw….

    The guy’s style is amazing. I love the combination of the brownish jeans with the brown suit. Well put together.

    This is another photo that will be saved into my special The Sartorialist-folder on my laptop.
    I love this shot. Even though it’s a ‘posed picture’.

    Keep it up!

    She looks great, he looks as though he forgot how to knot a tie.

    I don’t think I’ll ever get this bloody “air tie” thing.

    So simple, so chic!
    I love her blush colored dress, gorgeous.
    He looks very sharp too! Great touch the yellow knit vest under the brown fitted blazer. He probably isn’t but he looks very gay next to her…

    His skinny legs, slimmed further by the skintight pants, and average upper body, widened by that coat, look rather disproportionate. The similar coloring of the whole thing emphasizes this, I think; if the jeans (are they jeans? they look like jeans) were a dark blue, I think it would look better.

    He’s very “Dave Clark Five” Love it.

    She is simplistic and natural. Very nice couple.

    I really like the effortless simple flow to her dress and that her only knockout accessory is that belt (very nice belt). I think it’s the neutral colours, the natural wave to her hair and that one of her feet is almost coming out of her shoe that remind me summer’s almost here!

    His clothing style looks more hip than hers, as if it required more time to put together. Her dress is cute, it reminds me of Springtime

    Could his pants be any narrower?

    Really, one must at some point evaluate dispassionately the pluses and minuses of one’s body and either run with them all the way or make sartorial “adjustments” for balance and proportion.

    And little-p, would you say of another guy, he looks very heterosexual next to her?
    Of course there are looks that are stereotypically gay, but this isn’t one of them.

    But if it were, why SHOULDN’T he look gay next to her?

    shoes matching with the belt? gold shoes would have been better! one can never go wrong with gold.

    this is the best ever. I love his suit and skinny legs and the arch in her left foot. If there were a banjo, a daisy, and a little silver Jaguar in the photo they’d be “Harold and Maude”.

    Platform, no way! I met Truffaut and also Ali (she was filming here in Boston at the time)
    I don’t think this couple looks special.

    parisian chic !! this reminds me of a parisian i meet on vacation. she was so stylish i had to go up to her and ask her where she got her outfit from; it was at the time when not many people wore belts on thier hips; i thought that so seductive and teasing lol .. but i like the trend of waist cinching belts , though wide hips dont work with it :(

    I’m honestly a lot more taken with his look than hers, that yellow showing under his jacket is just lovely. As is the entire outfit, but the colour makes me think of butter.

    Both looks are great but
    is she wearing a black slip or something under that pink dress? I understand that the dress may be too sheer for daytime but black just doesn’t do it for me.

    Well well, when you dress and seem to behave in such an affected way (his non smiling expressin in th picture) you could at least polish your shoes.

    I know I’m sorry but unpolished shoes, well maybe it is the picture, I hope so…

    Fot the girl, I don’t know, the belt does not seem atthe right place with this width

    the low v-neck sweater is excellent. it’s hard to get color into a wardrobe or into an outfit and have it simply be a color rather than a statement of some sort. this yellow sweater does that really well – no statement, just great color.

    This is how the cigarette pants should be worn, with a tailored jacket and leather shoes. If you come to Sydney you’d want your eyes scrubed hard because the skinny legs are worn by guys with side swept greasy hair, a t-shirt, and rubber sandals. Y*CK!

    I think people forget that its not so easy to look polished and youthful and visually interesting all at the same time. Aesthetically pleasing and unique don’t always go together–I think they each hit the perfect note.

    There’s nothing boring about finding the perfect, flattering, fun dress, and then making sure your accessories compliment both it and you without overwhelming either. If you think otherwise you’re either incredibly lucky and tasteful, or you’ve simply never aimed for that combination.

    I also think the perfection of their look comes from being together. Alone they’d be nice, together they’re lovely!
