Notice the covered buttons on the jacket.

Where can you buy these nice 3PC suits? In the Netherlands I think it's impossible(?)


Blogger muir mackean said ... (5:42 AM) : 

nice colour suit, but to my eye the sleeves and trousers are too short, which has the effect of making him look dumpy. The 'ayatollah' severity of the buttoned collar works well against the flamboyance of the suit.


Blogger Sophie said ... (6:06 AM) : 

love that rich colour


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:30 AM) : 

Why can women's wear never be so simple and chic. A linen suit is so nice for summer, despite all that pain it takes to keep out all those wrinkles...

The brown tone is also interesting and unusual.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:00 AM) : 

your three piece suit photos are always my favorites.

i'm in love with all of the different hues of blue in this photo. they all make me think of him...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:35 AM) : 

Beautiful colour -warm brown.
Are the pants a bit short?


Blogger Rich said ... (8:00 AM) : 

love it. wish we could get a better look at the shoes.

the vest, imho, eliminates the need for tie or pocket hankie


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:06 AM) : 

This is perfect. I love the vests that have been popping up. He looks great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:35 AM) : 

i like this much better than the first linen suit below. the suit actually fits him here. the white linen shirt provides great contrast against the brown, and i like how he kept it buttoned up to retain some structure around the collar.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 AM) : 

I like his shoes, his smile and his beard very much. One thing I miss about your shots over at GQ is the ability to zoom in/click for a larger image. This lets you appreciate the details and quality of the image. Any chance on having that as a feature to enjoy those pics more? So many things I want to see closer!


Blogger Rebel Chic said ... (9:44 AM) : 

I've noticed that his trousers are a little bit too short, is that on purpose? Anyway, this is a nice picture!


Blogger Gabriela said ... (10:57 AM) : 

I love that chocolate color and that originality, that twist in that classic feel.


Blogger Gabriela said ... (10:57 AM) : 

PS. The shoes are charming!


Blogger Katherine said ... (11:05 AM) : 

exquisite - like chocolate cake


Blogger Gauzzel said ... (11:21 AM) : 

I love brown always


Blogger max said ... (11:26 AM) : 

No doubt he looks great, but is that a short sleeve shirt? Also bottom button on the vest is done. Its quirky but too thrift store for my liking.


Anonymous Franz Benjamin Hefele said ... (11:48 AM) : 

god I love everything about it! Its so simple, put your shirt on, take your suit out and your done! And it fits great, uhhh and the brown ...
please, please tell me which brands offer linen suits around 500 to 700 dollar!

I would love this suit if it fit him properly.


Blogger metscan said ... (12:46 PM) : 

I like his `beard´and the grays in it and the hair. Handsome. Maybe the pants should be a bit longer IMO. Great that there is not a tie on his outfit. Gives a relaxed appearance.


Blogger Monday Afternoon said ... (1:51 PM) : 

this is awkward and charming all at once.


Anonymous Christina said ... (2:33 PM) : 

Absolutely lovely. However the pants are a bit too "highwater-y" for me. The pant leg is not skinny enough to be ankle type and not long enough to just be a short pant. The wrinkles are also questionable. BUT, the way he carries himself sort of overrides all of that.


Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (2:52 PM) : 

i love the way this suit and the way it is worn with a plain white shirt have a simple, functional , almost utilitarian look. yet the covered buttons lift it out of the ordinary. i like his well-polished shoes too. nice photo, Sart.


Blogger Maggie May said ... (3:04 PM) : 

that color brown is scrumptious.

i like the neckline.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 PM) : 

aw that's great! too bad about the wrinkles, but I actually like it. it's so down to earth...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:14 PM) : 

Nice color, kind of a dry cinnamon. Pants ARE to short for this longer rise pant with wider thigh. I feel a trimmer leg & shorter rise works better for this shorter length, still elongates and doesn't cause the "stubby" effect. I would agree the last button on vest be unbuttoned. Short sleeve shirt in hot climate, I would leave top unbuttoned. Handsome guy, looks cool & friendly. Good shot.


Blogger Agos said ... (5:21 PM) : 

not particularly fond of the color, but that guy's seriously rocking that suit


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:05 PM) : 

First, a man needs an abundance of self-confidence to wear brown. This one has chosen not only brown, but in linen AND a 3-piece suit, with no tie AND buttoned up shirt. Whew, he overflows with gusto and has it his way. He'd be fascinating to know! Angela in Thailand.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:32 PM) : 

Gah! This suit is so classic, it's blinding my eyes because I don't see classic style very much any more. I wish people dressed like this regularly. Its kind of sweet how the pants are a little bit short on him. Doubt it's intentional.


Blogger White Russian said ... (8:43 PM) : 

Great suit, great color--it suits him well, however, the cut of the pants bother me. I do like that the inseam is slightly short. Too bad about the wrinkles? I think the wrinkles are a good thing! I love clothes that look worn...because that's what you do...wear them.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:46 PM) : 

Someone needs to get you photoshop for your birthday, Sart. He looks as if he's smoking (but he's not).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 PM) : 

is that no socks again?


Blogger aviewaskew said ... (10:50 PM) : 

oh my very giancarlo giannini ...i am 'swept away' by his exuberance...he wears it well and the red and blue pop against the earthy brown...


Blogger Paris Tarts said ... (11:03 PM) : 

Random...but I love the covered buttons :)



Blogger USelaine said ... (1:00 AM) : 

The buttons, the buttoning up, the color, the texture, the shape - reminds me of "The Bicycle Thief", even though I haven't seen it in decades. It's an idea that transcends all those specifics, and makes me wonder if the man has a sentimental heart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:43 AM) : 

its Robert Rabensteiner stylist for uomo vogue.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:34 AM) : 

Oh dear, why is everyone complaining about the pant length? It's perfect, in fact it's the focal point of the whole outfit, those shoes are taken to new levels with that peek of ankle, beautiful, bold use of brown, excellent hair/beard action too...the whole pic reminds me of that (almost) antique beige italian suit you featured last year...


Blogger hakka3 said ... (12:48 PM) : 

I'm baffled that people think this is an acceptable substitute for wearing a tie. If you're going with a 3pc. suit, why would you then bend over backwards to casual it up? And why do some people think that buttoning one's shirt up all the way like Dilbert looks 'relaxed'? I guess if he added a pocket protector, these folks would start making JFK-on-the-beach comparisons! This man needs a tie and a pocket square; a well-chosen tie could convey fun and relaxation a lot better than this Ahmedinejad-style move.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:44 PM) : 

I wish he wore a tie or something on his neck. Too much brown with nothing to contrast it with leaves it feeling incomplete. But great find, nonetheless.


Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (2:12 PM) : 

love the colour.

he's gorgeous. how many times a day can one fall in love?

The white shirt makes the brown suit sing--as Ronald Reagan practiced to great effect. And a constructed linen suit looks much sharper than some of the unconstructed ones I've seen flopping around.


Blogger April ~ Living the Sweet Life said ... (5:08 PM) : 

I love a linen suit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:44 AM) : 

Oops he forgot his socks.


Blogger Jessica said ... (4:16 PM) : 

love this, but i hate the blockbuster backdrop ;)


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

I didn't know Dennis Miller went to Italy ... :)

Huuuuuuuuuuuge linen fan, and I love a brown suit too, so this is pretty much a "go get one of these made" photos (just with longer pants ... )


Blogger deswotans said ... (6:07 PM) : 

Does anybody know who made this suit?


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

Great suit. Nice color. Hardly seen this type of color around. But the pants are a bit short. When you wear something that calls attention, leave no room for mistakes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:07 AM) : 

to me this man has style. first, he decided NOT to wear a tie and then button his shirt all the way to the top. second, linen is a beautiful fabric and that's a pretty cool colour. third, he's NOT wearing socks...YIPPPEE! this man scores the big one my fashion checklist!! he's understated, current, and looking good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:50 PM) : 

he's a cutie, non? pants are short in europe now?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:06 AM) : 

I don't like very much brown colour, but with Robert all colours are ok!!!
Beautiful linen suite and white shirt gives a lightness point. No tie is a good choice. Short pants are very cool (please read dandy).


Blogger Steve said ... (9:27 PM) : 

I love the look, but undo the top shirt button, and add some socks for this one.


Blogger Michael said ... (5:12 PM) : 

does anyone have a suggestion on where to find a cool 3-piece linen suit like this one? most linen suits i've seen are standard-type colors - khaki, white, light/pastel colors. i like the rich darker brown color...


Anonymous Simon said ... (1:23 PM) : 

It's not easy to look that casual in a 3-pc.


Anonymous melanie said ... (9:36 AM) : 

I think he needs the pants in a bigger size. I like the old fashion suit look. All the guys look good. No matter what ;)
