On The Street….Ralph Lauren Fashion Show

I keep going back to this photo.
I didn’t post it before because his eyes are shut but I still love the look.

    I like the coat, hate the shirt collar with the tie and coat though. In my opinion he needs a more pointed shirt collar.

    i love spread collar shirts. the only adjustment i will make is the tie knot should be fatter so the lenght will be shorter.

    Like the brown. But what shoes is he wearing? Brown or black? Or (major yuck) tassels.

    The cut-away collar is a bit much. The Prince of Wales one would have been more suitable!

    The look is tight. The spread collar is quite rare for an American and works very well here.
    Maybe a different colour tie? But this tie still works very well.

    I have an issue that you can tell he purchased the whole outfit in one shop, in one room, from the same designer in the same trip. It works well, but to me it looses credibility and falls short of a true “Sartorialist”. I hate pre-canned looks, too Nuevo-riche.

    I’m pretty sure the suit is Ralph Lauren. I fact, it’s a very Ralph look!

    Am I the only one thinking Napoleon Dynamite here? Of course, the suit is my favorite part of the movie.

    I wish you had a close up of his tie, it looks like a woven..which I prefer to prints.

    I like the colors – I think here it’s a very earthy, natural sort of look BUT (a) the spread collar (which I too favor) seems like it is way too spread, and then (b) the tie knot is subsequently too small. And then there is the pants, which are tending a wee bit tight round the middle. Tha tells me he’s either in a bit of denial about his portion size, or he hasn’t had these pants to the tailor yet for a bit of unsquinching.

    I think that he looks sexy even if his eyes are closed!

    I love a brown suit. It needs a pointier collar and bigger tie know but otherwise looks great and I love the tie too.

    Dude looks like Christopher Nolan a bit. Like the colors a lot but I think, like other posters, that his tie knot is a too small. Other than that great outfit.

    I like the outfit but it’s definitely an all Ralph outfit which loses points. It looks like a Keaton shirt which I personally wear as much as possible but the whole Windsor/exaggerated spread is not everyone’s cup of tea. The knot size actually works for me because it compliments the slimmer lapels. A big knot, coupled with the shirt, would overwhelm the look.

    if u have a heavier suit/coat which has a touch of a rustic cosy tweed (check: harris tweed) it´s supposed to appear kinda sophisticated or aristocratic. matches perfect with this guy. looks like he came right from his country residence…
    cutaway collar is also a fantastic thing to wear…looks best with smaller tie-knots…see prince charles..the master of the perfect tieknot-size-collar-combination…a kent collar would make the lapel look hillarious and to voluminous..great outfit for this person.

    I like the entire look, but I think his face needs a more pointed shirt collar indeed.

    I think the whole look works great. Love, love, love the cutaway collar. All of the proportions are right on point. The suit looks great with the slanted pockets. Hopefuly the pant are a little too short and cuffed.

    Everyone missed the wonderful suit details, the tab closure on the lapel, the ticket pocket, both elements that make that suit special.

    My only objection is that the tie matches the pocket square. Would be far more interesting with a mismatch of similar coloration.

    While I cannot wear a collar spread that wide, I think the look is “spot on”.
