The cardigan and jacket ... Dude looks COOOOOOLLLLLLLL.

This is so lovely! The little hints of his red shirt are perfect! And there's something so mysterious in his face.

Could have been a Rembrandt painting from 2009. Beautiful.

great photo, and I love the color of his suit...the cardigan is great...I want to see that scarf on him.

This ensemble is so refreshing! I wish more men dressed like this in the states. I would marry him on the spot haha


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:45 AM) : 

This would be great, if the jacket fit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:49 AM) : 

Oh wow; beautiful photo and beautiful suit ensemble. I'm adding this to my "ideas for how to make suits less boring to me." I'm a woman who has to wear them yet doesn't like them very much, so I will try this contrasting button down shirt layered under tonal yet still substantially different color sweater vest/cardigan on myself and see how it goes.


Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (10:54 AM) : 

gorgeous photo, great light, i love his expression! He has beautiful hair too. Janne is right, it has a Rembrandt quality. Are brown suits coming back ? If they are lovely shades of nut brown and as sharply cut as this one i welcome that. The burgundy jersey and the scarf add individuality and character.


Anonymous Bri said ... (10:59 AM) : 

Gosh, that is just amazing. I love colors, scarf looks great wth that suit, I have no doubts. And I just love cardigan buttons. Brilliant.

"Could have been a Rembrandt painting..."- I thought of Caravaggio- beautiful shot.

He looks great in all his melancholy angst.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:32 AM) : 

Fantastic suit, with lovely cut, colour, and material, matched perfectly with the burgundy cardigan and pink shirt. It suits him so well.

And I even like the scarf!


Blogger Christopher Kalie said ... (11:33 AM) : 

oh god - this is pretty much the standard boy about town look in korea. boring!


Blogger deanna said ... (11:44 AM) : 

wow. he looks like someone who i'd really like to get to know. and the lighting and colors in the photo are luminous.

The colors are gorgeous; it has the intensity of the "Man in Red Turban" painting.


Blogger Ruhvana and Flanelli said ... (2:04 PM) : 

He wears that suit so well, it looks amazing. It fits so perfectly!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:12 PM) : 

Just look at the exposed cuff! A little bit of the pink shirt a little bit of the cranberry cardigan. Perfect. I want this look. I'm a cardigan fool.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:21 PM) : 

Uh, that jacket is way too tight (pinching of fabric at the buttoning point). And too short (both in length and in the sleeve, but I guess that's what the people love nowadays). Nice colors though (and great light).


Anonymous Made To Measure NY said ... (2:22 PM) : 

Love the tailoring on this suit jacket as well as the peak lapels. The pink and cranberry are such a nice combo under the brown. One wonders why there is the absence of le pocket square. Unless he's holding an extra large one in his left hand. ;)


Blogger A4 said ... (2:27 PM) : 

The colours are of course very beautiful. All the more shame about the fit of the suit. It is clearly too narrow in the waist and too short in the sleeve. That x-shaped pull of the fabric is an eyesore.
A real pity..

i just love the warm colors!


Blogger Words Between the Spaces said ... (4:20 PM) : 

Love the lighting on this photo. Also like the burgundy sweater with the brown.


Blogger CW said ... (4:24 PM) : 

The fit of this olive suit is the problem. It is too tight. The sleeves may be proportioned for French cuffs. However, many men do have one arm longer than the other. Any decent tailor can make the changes on the sleeves. As far as the jacket goes, the side seams as well as the back vent seam can be let out. I think this guy needs 2-2.5 inches let out for proper fit.


Anonymous Corwin said ... (4:31 PM) : 

I wanna see his shoes!


Blogger Vj , Messy, Ned, Jacko,Veej said ... (4:38 PM) : 

I HAD to comment on this one- he is beautiful but that LIGHT! Oh my, Scott you have positively nailed this shot. love.


Blogger anonwomen said ... (5:02 PM) : 

The richness of light, colour and texture is really stunning - I love it


Blogger Catherine said ... (5:03 PM) : 

Love the colors, love the photo, the guy is very good looking, but I'm ready for the tiny suit trend to end.

A perfect photo, if not a perfect fit. Beautiful tones in this photo, Scott.

who cares about the clothes, that photo is amazing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:44 PM) : 

exquisite...tonal harmony...subtlety and proportion, haven't seen anything quite so inspiring in ages... though I'm curous to see how he wears his scarf...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:32 PM) : 

That jacket isn't even close to fitting properly.

I must be getting old.

i just love those buttons and the colors look so rich.
very handsome man he is. his eyes are so innocent yet i look at his lips and see abit of a menacing smirk.


Anonymous ahm said ... (7:56 PM) : 

I used to hate that fit for jackets, but I think it's great. You have to be rail thin to wear it though. He looks terrific.


Blogger Rita said ... (8:05 PM) : 

Wow! Absolutely striking photograph. Very inspiring!


Anonymous desertwind said ... (8:25 PM) : 

What a beautiful photo, Sart.

It's an Edward Hopper painting, fer sure.


Blogger Eleanor said ... (8:48 PM) : 

this is so beautiful. really inspiring on so many levels: layering, tone, texture. even though i wouldn't wear this out fit per se, it is a wonderful example of how to think about tailored dressing in general. chic, concise, charming. thank you.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 PM) : 

I like the fit of this mans suit. Too many men wear suits that are slightly too large and they end up looking like the manilla folders they're invariably carrying.


Blogger seawallrunner said ... (11:13 PM) : 

love the chiaroscuro in the image. lovely colours. intriguing man. the blackberry gives it away as 2009, but the mood is centuries earlier.

yes the jacket is too small. but that is the look. that is his look.


Blogger New said ... (12:10 AM) : 

This man is not wearing his suit too small. It's a deliberate style choice and it doesn't work for everyone. It does work admirably for him, and the fact that it's fashionable at the moment shouldn't be held against him.

I dress myself by preference in suits with a roomier fit than this, but this man is evidence that the skinny suit can and does look good. It's really the masses of salarymen wearing suits with sleeves going down to their thumbs that are the problem.


Blogger Daisy said ... (2:12 AM) : 

ahhh wow, this is perfect. that coat is golden, I love it with that sexy sweater.

oh, everythig just melts...amazing

This shot is crossing time barriers. Rembrandt, the tight fit of jacket of Chaplin´s little tramp, the renessaince coloring, the scarf of the 19th century peasant woman. Congratulations.
That perhaps makes it so totally of today.


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

that photo is phenomenal


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:44 AM) : 

Different suits for different body types - i like tight, narrow cut suits on young, skinny adolescent types. British actor Bill Nighy also wears his custom made suits on the narrow side and looks great; but you need a different cut if you're broad and muscular. The same for women, not every girl looks good in body-con styles and I would love to wear Stella McCartney's slouchy boyfriend jackets or any of Yohji Yamamoto's deconstructed sculptural garments but they drown me. All clothes aren't for every body (sorry-terrible grammar!). sometimes we have to be content to look and admire them on other people.

Chuck Bass much?


Blogger A4 said ... (1:35 PM) : 

I disagree with some of the previous comments: one thing is to go for a narrower, structured look (Huntsman, of Savile Row, for example, are famous for it),another thing is to be wearing something that evidently does not fit.

This is obviously judging by very classic criteria, but if the jacket is well-cut or adjusted to the body of the wearer, nothing should be puling as excessively as it does in this otherwise very beautiful photo.

Blogger travelbug said ... (2:33 PM) : 

Kudos to the photographer and photoshop color balancer!

Totally magnificent colors! The wine red does exist in the olive -- what genius! The pink shirt is beyond brilliant!

The other color story, represented in the scarf, also totally works -- and even with the red/pink concept.

Really, really smart!!

The cut of the trouser is perfect. Who knew trousers could be sexy!!


Anonymous Michael Singer said ... (2:46 PM) : 

Apart from fashion - what i like most in your photos is the quality of light. This is another wonderful example. Thanks for sharing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:43 PM) : 

cheap suit (as mentioned above) or not, he's working it. I'm tall and thin myself and most thriftstore clothing is still cut for the shorter and wider so sleeves are often shy of my wrist. so,perhaps his jacket is a bit small but I don't think that's an accident.

my only question is, what's with the sour puss?


Blogger zuccotto said ... (11:12 PM) : 

Gorgeous photo.

The jacket's too small. (I don't care what is 'in'.)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:19 PM) : 

it may well be a perfect fit without the cardigan. maybe he was just a little cold that day.


Blogger Brendan said ... (12:09 AM) : 

Wow... great style... Colours rock. that scarf is to die for. hand crafted textured and subtly coloured for maximum luxury appeal, then he added the merlot cardigan and soft pink shirt. who cares that the jackets a little to short in the sleeve? it allows so much more colour to show through, Instantly you have a look that says 'I wear my moods!'


Anonymous Adelaidean said ... (1:27 AM) : 

The quality of light is stunning. Work of art, Scott.

The outfit is also very sophisticated in construction. The Mediterranean tones are beautiful -- really, olive and wine are natural partners. The textures look equally scrumptious.

As for the fit, I suspect the fabric of the jacket and the stance of the subject may account for some of the perceived tightness. In any case, for me, it doesn't detract for what is an altogether very handsome fellow.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (5:57 AM) : 

A beautiful mix of beautiful cloths.

oooh so beautifully elegant and understated - what a stylish man! Love the fit of his suit... quite perfect!

the peaked lapels, the showing of the cardigan at the no no, everything else is good


Blogger travelbug said ... (1:23 AM) : 

The two color stories here. It occurred to me today that one was for Spring and the other for Fall -- showing that this "green" color works for both seasons.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:18 AM) : 

Great look, but too tight that Coat...


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

His jacket is straining to meet the added requirements of the sweater and his slim physique. The sweater would have been better if it was a thin pullover (very thin). One must make an occasional sacrifice to pull off a stunning color combination (we have all done it, and learned with our mistakes). As always, the subject is the main focus, but the lighting and background are employed in concert to make the perfect look. Great, Sart.


Anonymous Will_B said ... (12:35 PM) : 

yep, his Christopher Niquet... he's a stylist :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:01 PM) : 

Great colors and an ok fit. The jacket is not a disaster as some have stated. The sleeves are a tad short, but it's consistent with the jacket length. You can also see he's intentionally pulled the shirt and cardigan sleeves lower on his wrist then they would normally fall, overemphasizing the sleeve shortness. The jacket is slim and maybe a tad too tight but with the thick cardigan under, it looks way too tight. It's an acceptable sacrifice in the name of color experimentation. If the jacket always fit with a cardigan, then it would look loose without one. The jacket might be a bit too short, but again, it's more in fashion currently, makes him look taller, and opens an option of wearing it as a separate....

By itself, I can't stand burgandy. It reminds me of a bad hotel lobby in the early 80's. But this guy really pulls it off with the other colors, especially the brown. Good show!! I won't be wearing it though.....


Blogger Sander said ... (11:52 AM) : 

The combination of colors is brilliant. His suit however is not. The jacket is way too tight, look at the fabric next to the button! Furthermore the shoulders are substancially padded. For what reason?


Blogger Ghostboy2112 said ... (1:53 PM) : 

Absolutely fantastic outfit. Perfectly executed and great colour combination.

OK, so the jacket is a little small - but the point is, he really nails this look, and that shirt and cardigan look beautiful together. Lovely colours.
