Great photo, Scott! I like the colour of this young gentleman's double-cuffed shirt and tie. Englishmen are usually very creative with their shirts and ties; not so with their suits, which retain sober patterns and colours.

But as far as "English gentlemen" go, this chap is a fairly mundane specimen who exhibits a classic City style. I'm sure you'll find more typically English gents out there. I'm referring to the Englishmen decked out in tweed, tattersall, knit tie, v-neck jumper, quilted jacket, Barbour jacket, cord trousers, brown brogues, etc.

Yes, he does typify a certain Brit look. Let's not quibble with the details--tie length and knot, etc.--or have I just?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 AM) : 

tie is too long. tie knot too big. derbies with a city suit. not exactly my idea of a gentleman.

 

Anonymous cigalechanta said ... (10:43 AM) : 

A little too much cuff showing.

 

Blogger John said ... (10:51 AM) : 

Everything is just right except for the tie length.

 

Blogger jkh said ... (10:55 AM) :

great pic Sart

always like how the Brits have the smallish spread collars and the massive ties

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:20 PM) : 

Where in London did you go? You see people dressed like this just about everywhere in places like Notting Hill, Hampstead, the West End, the City .....

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:48 PM) : 

Marvellous, the shirt and tie make it, and the fact that he is showing that much cuff without looking silly. I envy that.

He looks fine, but hang around in the City and anywhere lawyers hang out (Holborn) and you'll see other, possibly more classic, examples.

Sart you should see my father! We live in London and he would be great for your blog, he borders on eccentric but always gets his basics right. Seriously, as a graphic designer himself, he has such a brilliant understanding of aesthetics.
PLUS he is quite the little man aswell, at about 5 4".
Come back to London soon and I'll make sure he is somehwere you'll be and looking sartorialist worthy.

Looks more italian influenced than Brit to me.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:23 PM) : 

OH LET'S DO!!

Knot: perfection

collar spread: inspired

pant length: precise

overall look: sartorial bullseye

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:31 PM) : 

sart, have you given any thought to disabling the comment function?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:37 PM) : 

That is a humongous fucking tie!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:57 PM) : 

Is this the purple and pink guy from a few posts ago? (or maybe all bald men with glasses look the same to me - that is worrying)If it's him, then I love it - a complete change of style, looking great both times.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:29 AM) : 

goog look except the tie length and hid raincoat

 

Blogger tintin said ... (2:43 PM) : 

You would think this is what you would see but:
Most Brits don't cuff trousers on "City" suits.

The shirt/tie combination would be louder. Much louder.

The shoes...Are those Westons?

You want City of London Gents? Go to the Lamb Pub in Leadenhall Market just off Lime St. Grab a pint and wait for Lloyd's of London to let out around 4:30PM. You'll be in target rich environment.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:21 PM) : 

his shirt looks enormously too long. it drives me nuts when mine ride out half that far.

 

Blogger Eva said ... (1:40 AM) : 

I love the english gentleman! Does he still excist?

 

Anonymous Vinny said ... (11:39 AM) : 

What type of gentleman is that? A staple straight out of a Guy Ritchie movie?

Pulls off all the blue nicely, however.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:24 AM) : 

hmmm. reminds me of my father. the way he is standing, with the phone, the business look.
though im sure sure my dad would have something to say about that tie!
