Complement & Contrast

The top picture is all about the shape of this jacket, the beautiful roll of the lapel, the roping of the shoulder and the perfect length.
Lately I've heard challenges to the standard plain white pocket square; above Mory enlivens the charcoal color suit with a colorful silk print pocket square. The freehand fluidity of the print contrasts perfectly with the solid geometry of the plaid shirt.

""Magnifique!" as they say out in New Jersey.

This is S-U-I-T said with
gusto & aplomb.


No where to go but down,
so what about the shoes?

I hate it when somebody's wearing a dress shirt that cost more than my car . . .

A perfect fit!
Simply elegant!

Amazing suit, but doesn't suit the guy. His head is too big/round...I feel a more strait-fitted blazer would do him more justice.

I agree, too bright, too much waist suppression, the blazer is a bit too tight around the shoulders

a little too flashy for my tastes

Nah, it's only the tie that makes the look seem a bit too flashy. The suit and shirt are beautiful, a more subtle tie would have made it a 10 out of 10.

It's like that old adage about jewelery-- walk over to the mirror, then remove the first thing that catches your eye.

I feel that he could have got away with the suit if he had opted out of the cut away collar. It definetely does not suit people with big/round head. Love the comment by Nick, food for thought.

perfect, was he wearing cufflinks, suspenders?

The suit looks like and Eredi Pisano suit. It is a typical Itialian cut. Mory's frame add's to the striking look; especially around the waist.

He is clearly expressing himself through the use of bold colours and a dramatic fit! Thumbs up from me overall.

this is a beautiful neopolitan siloutte, beatiful roping at the shouder and an exquisite high gorge,but it is much too small for his physique. he is busting out of the cross chest and the top of his arms are exploding out the shoulder cap....

Nothing wrong with being flashy. This guy is sharp.
