    Where was the photo taken?

    I can’t even find words to comment on this guy’s look except “Va-va-voom!”

    Nice contrast between the jacket and the pants, although I would’ve picked a tie that’s not so close in color to the jacket. Great fit overall, and hey, there’s even cuff showing!

    This guy is a stud.

    The grey background makes this shot appear to be a done inside a studio rather than out on the street. Good job. I wish you were shooting my line.

    I honestly dont buy the look. It looks really odd and borderline-dowdy.

    Are those pants suede? Doesn’t quite work for me..but I admire the effort.

    What is the make of the blazer?

    I love the silhouette of the jacket.

    Heh, I think this would be considered a “scroll down” by the Go Fug Yourself girls…

    It’s so nice and playful with the rusty orange pants.

    Great look. I love the windsor knot and the T.V. square. I can’t say I like the trousers, olive green would also look very good with this combo.

    Great look – have you published this picture before? It looks very familiar. Maybe it’s the guy I recognize.

    This is an excellent example of a short jacket that looks great and is balanced very well with the wide of the lapels, the width of the tie and the size of the shirt collar to compliment the wearer.

    very dapper with a hint of whimsy.

    he could be a banker, or an art director. a very different suit, if you see him sitting down vs standing up.

    well done

    I have shot this guy before at the same location (just outside the Vacca store on Fifth)

    it is such a perfect backdrop.

    I believe the pants were cords, which is a nice way to mix formal/casual

    A different tie would’ve helped.
    As would a more dashing pocket square.
    To me, I see somebody experimenting with his confidence levels. Right now, it looks like he was confused leaving the house – not really confident he could pull off the job right but ready to try something different.

    Nice effort though.

    Sartorialist, is the coat by Vacca? Originally I thought it might be Borrelli but then I noticed the pockets.

    Great look and nice to see some cuff!

    Great look. That jacket FITS, and the pants are bold. One thing: lose the whatever-that-is-in-your-front-right-pocket-thing…

    Does he work for Vacca, like the other Filipino guy?

    finally, someone wearing a navy blazer without looking like they “summer” on the vineyard and are married to a woman named muffy

    I like the whole look, except for the color of his tie and the mobile phone in his pocket.

    Very nice Blazer….admire the bold choice of colour with the trousers…….Trousers are a bit on the narrow side, but overall great outfit!

    wow, i REALLY REALLY dislike this look. I’m a big fan of daring trouser/jacket combinations but this one is completely off. This photo almost looks just like the one you took of him months ago (which I didnt like his look back then), but it’s like somebody clicked on his trousers and turned it rust orange in photoshop. It almost doesnt look real. I like the trousers by themself tho, they would go well with quite a few items in my closet.

    I kinda look like this guy. We have a similar build and face shape, including the bald head. It’s good that I see him here a lot.

    By leaving out the brass/metal buttons, we’ve made blazers more versatile. They have become more business-like, while remaining casual. A blazer like this one, worn with trousers or jeans, looks stylish and professional. There is still room for classic navy blazers with shiny buttons: at the club, or, with jeans or charcoal worsteds.

    This guy could be headed to a party, to close that deal, or cover a shoot. That’s versatility…and style.
