i can’t help being overwhelmed by this thought sometimes: “OK there’s a guy called Mory in NY, whose father is a diplomat and himself in some sort of fashion business. by the help of GQ and The Sartorialist you get acquainted to the guy and he becomes someone you know, occasionally see and follow!!..oh mory wore DB, wow mory had a beautiful dimple on the tie etc..isn’t that overly amazing?”
a very nice cut btw. the color and the texture of the fabric adds up too..
Not just the fit. This gentleman has chosen a fabric which suits him perfectly. The colour of the tie, the pocket square and the crisp white shirt – it’s the entire combination that looks superb here. Very dapper.
The colors are a very nice complement to his skin tone, but if the jacket were just a tad looser, I wouldn’t be thinking muffin top. Perhaps it’s pulling because he has his hand in his pocket? On first glance, the pocket square looks like a bumblebee. Too, too precious.
while the suit is cut well and the colors are sumptuous, i can’t get past the lapels on the jacket and the spread collar on the shirt. the pattern of the suit fabric also borders on clownish. which is not the affect he was going for, i’m sure
PS: The large size takes away the impact of the photos because (most) screens are not big enough for the whole photo to be seen at once. One has to scroll down to see the second half of the shot which is disturbing the beauty of your photography style. I loved your earlier size in which the photos would fit into the screen and if you needed to see a minute detail up close, you could click and see the large size.
I am less of a fan of the new photo format. For me, it removes the opportunity to look at the ensembles from a distance before the details become apparent (i.e. following the link to the photo by itself and zooming in).
Also, since the picture does not fit entirely in my browser window, I miss out on the impact of the photograph as a whole, which I have come to appreciate more and more here after first coming only for the fashion. I can still get it by following the link, as mentioned above, but it is akin to being placed right in front of a photo, opening your eyes, then taking a step back. A process with which I am not accustomed.
to get nerdy… the jacket has very high peaks and rather slim lapels. the top buttons are very wide apart which gives an aggressively nipped look to the torso (as the eye moves down the buttons). the shoulders are lightly padded. all of which contributes to a more edgy, slightly less classic take.
Anyone else finding the photos to big to view on their lap top??? Unless I enlarge each individually, I can’t see entire portrait shots, that aside the shots are stunning as always! Thanks Sart. Merry Christmas from sunny NZ!
The idea of larger pictures seems great at first! However, with my standard computer screen I can’t see the photos fully without having to scroll down. It also seems as if the quality is less sharp than before. So here’s one more vote to go back to the old format.
WOW! this is GREAT! what perfection in sartorial attire. Just the right application of color and just the right amount of sprezzatura in the pocket square to give the suit the end all bit of character the outfit needs! And, i love how the collar’s width and hefty knit tie and its thick knot compliment this gentleman’s face. this man knows whats up.
The very first thing that comes to mind, now that I have regained consciousness, and you can sing along, is, “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.” He is absolutely gorgeous, so is his suit. His pocket square looks like an exotic insect that landed on his chest, attracted by the color of his tie. Until just now I have never had the slightest desire to be an exotic insect…
From the other comments I assume he has appeared here before – is there a way to find the other photos of without scrolling through all of the archives? I’m sure he is just as stunning in the other shots – but must find out for myself if possible.
I am also curious about his shoes, but then I wonder if they were in the shot if I would have even noticed them… his smile is just so…
Beautiful. Buuuuut how much nicer had he’ve chosen a small single blossom for his lapel instead, say a winter blooming coral colored hellebore like the Prince of Wales. Now THAT would have been extraordinary….
The guy looks good because he’s got a great figure and head and the suit is very interesting. But. Sorry to disagree but the suit looks way too tight and hence looks a bit contrived. I can’t imagine this is going to be incredibly comfortable over a ten hour day. Then the pocket square looks too much like a herbaceous border. Way too contrived again when pocket squares can be distinctive but not overpowering.
Am I the only person looking at this new, tight-shouldered, nipped-waist profile that is emerging in men’s sportscoats and suit jackets, and saying:
“It’s delicious and so handsome, but can any of these men raise their arms above waist height?”
As a feminist, I’m titillated to think that men might be adopting something as uncomfortable as stilletto heels, and as a fashion follower I’m delirious that men have decided to stop looking like their clothes are two sized too big. But as a humanist I can’t help but wonder — can these men even comb their own hair when wearing something this constricting at the armpit and shoulder?
love the way the dark edging on the pocket square/ruffle keeps it from floating away. quite the unexpected and daring look, beautifully executed.
i view your blog (obsessively) on IE7 on a Dell inspiron laptop and have to admit i prefer the smaller format photos because i could see the full impact of an outfit at first glance. unfortunately, scrolling down does detract from that inital “oh la la!” effect.
It is a great fit. The pocket square is a nice whimsical fourish. Not a fan of the knit tie- it seems too casual and the color draws too much attention to itself and detracts from the overall look- it particularly doesn’t go with the pocket square. He still looks good.
Not a big fan of the enlarged images but that’s not gonna stop me from coming to this blog!! Haha. In regards to this particular image? I love love the color choices! The outfit really does work in many different ways. Good on him for this ensemble.
i love this ensemble! he makes it look so easy. i know it takes skill and a good eye to put together an outfit like this with so many details and textures. i would love it if this man would help me put together outfits straight from my closet. i’m sure he can pull random articles of clothing together to make a masterpiece! ~mparis
The suit is fab, but I think is time to discover some new fashion heavy weights and post them as well. it’s a lot of guys in retail in new york city that dress as nice as he does. photo guy do the research and you would see…
Oh Mory, you have reivigorated the men’s fashion on this blog, thank goodness!! The entire outfit is just ridiculous, rediculous I tell you! Oh and the comment by Crowsfeet was trully funny and clever.
Just to let you know, viewing using Firefox on a Mac, this new image size is fine, crisp and just perfect. Lovely image to try it out on too!
But, tailors out there please answer this for me: are that spread collar and the mono-width tie the right things with that suit lapel? I thought it was a sharp, deep shirt collar (mirroring the angle of the jacket lapel) and a tight knot on the tie with that DB jacket and lapel shape? Suit is gorgeous and a wonderful fit, but shirt and tie look to me too high and tight around his neck…
I’ve looked at this photo several times over the last few days. I don’t know who this man is, but his smile and his stance radiate such a positive, warm energy that it is hard not to be taken in. The combination of the suit and his slim graceful figure actually reminds me of a young Cary Grant. Oh please, can we return to a time when men wore tailored, more form-fitting outfits? I have grown so tired of good-looking young men wearing baggy, unattractive sports attire. Thank you Sartorialist for posting this and other pics; hopefully these style choices will catch on!
the new enlarged image size! but, of course! it’s brilliant! EXACTLY what i’d been waiting for…but didn’t know it. it makes the whole sart. experience even better (and i didn’t know it could GET better!). thanks for the upgrade!
