Lose the watch and this could be a shot from the movie "Remains of the Day". I was never a big fan of this type of suit. The fabric seems clunky and the cut just makes it worse.

Nice photo though Scott.


Blogger The Sluice Box said ... (4:43 PM) : 

There's nothing quite like the subtle visual interest of grey flannel and its mottled shades.


Blogger Zenobie said ... (4:45 PM) : 

Fabulous double breasted suite – the man James Bond aspires to be!


Blogger Korver said ... (4:45 PM) : 

Lovely. Classy, timeless. I love the simple light blue/grey/black color combination. I like the watch-it adds a bit of industrial/modern style. And not that I support smoking or anything but the cigar definitely adds something.


Blogger Catherine said ... (4:45 PM) : 

omg, the jacket is gorgeous!


Blogger Geneva Kate Stegall said ... (4:48 PM) : 

Double-breasted, double cuff buttons; double the suave.

haha that dude screams 'big deal' with that heavyweight DB suit. i like the sport watch and the 2/2 split button detail on the sleeve. pretty sweet.


Blogger guillermo said ... (5:10 PM) : 

You can never go wrong with gray flannel.

That grey flannel looks very warm and cozy!

The fabric looks utterly divine.

Please Mr Hackett, mind those shoulders..
And the oversized watch is a bit..dated?

He looks like he has money. I'll marry him.

I love how the watch looks almost anachronistic.

I think it is an IWC Double Chronograph perhaps the "TOP GUN" - Edition...And sorry, it´s a little bit expensive, about 10,000$...
And sure, i want one too!!!!!


Blogger nuriab said ... (6:19 PM) : 

OH!Sir. Jeremy ! He´s always perfect. He´s a "fifty-fifty" man :
half English,half Italian man.I prefer his English part, so natural!
Lovely and warm grey flannel in this shot at the daylight !

By the way it was great meeting you at the Pitti( I took your picture ), unfortunately I wasnt there long enough for the booksigning. Still waiting for you to come to the Netherlands..

now THAT is a well-dressed man.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:35 PM) : 

i like this guy a lot! VERY nice double breasted suit. and the watch complements in a very subtle way. it makes everything look new and up-to-date in a way!
i would love to know what kind of tie wore and what shoes.



Blogger 659 kilómetros said ... (6:36 PM) : 

love the watch!


Blogger Nico said ... (6:47 PM) : 

Nice fabric, but just too much of it for my tastes -- wide lapels, big pocket flaps, double-breasted, and then a very generous cut to boot.

Should at least have a pocket square.

The spacing of the cuff buttons is cool, but I imagine it is a flourish that doesn't stand up to a second or third wearing.


Blogger Johanna Urban said ... (6:49 PM) : 

cool :)


Anonymous Shveik said ... (6:51 PM) : 

Suit's great. Looks very expensive, which makes it even greater. Don't like the watch though.


Blogger Diya said ... (7:12 PM) : 

so handsome... love the watch and the cigar.


Blogger Chester said ... (7:24 PM) : 

I think the watch is an IWC Top Gun. Interesting button layout on the sleeves.


Blogger omchelsea said ... (7:33 PM) : 

:P to the watch!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:47 PM) : 

The watch is an IWC Pilot Chronograph. One of the classiest watches ever made. Not stupidly expensive (around $6K) but IWC are known for conservative manufacture and styling and it will still be telling the time beautifully and accurately a century from now and long, long, long after the suit is outdated.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:02 PM) : 

Great hair. Classic look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:00 PM) : 

i would have perhaps placed a larger button on this suit ... like a brushed silver or gunmetal grey shank button... the buttons pale compared to the mans class (and watch)
interesting fabric choice!


Blogger Vinda Sonata said ... (9:12 PM) : 

what a fine man. i love the elite feel of his clothes. must be very expensive, examining from the textures and the beautiful color.
great photography, Scott!



Blogger terence said ... (9:17 PM) : 

Yes it is an IWC Top Gun. A Portuguese Chrono would be more appropriate, and half the price.


Blogger Jacqueline said ... (9:17 PM) : 

Wow, he is so chic and stylish and I think he knows it too. Great shot of him. xoxo


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:27 PM) : 

thumbs down on the giant watch, hate this trend.

The PERFECT suit. There's nothing more to say.



Anonymous Annie said ... (10:08 PM) : 

Gorgeous!....and he knows it.


Anonymous jiminy said ... (10:30 PM) : 

The watch is a mood-ruiner, best suited for a 23-yo just gaining access to a trust fund, or the insecure. Mr. Hackett is neither. Perhaps he a has a financial stake in the series?


Blogger die Blume said ... (10:54 PM) : 

While everything about this is perfect. The cigar and the watch simply make the photo.
Thank you!


Anonymous princess glee said ... (11:35 PM) : 

The man in the impeccable gray flannel suit, looking all mean and scarey and sexy.

Shame about the watch.


Blogger Djordy said ... (1:19 AM) : 

the fabric is too heavy for my taste and does not really compliment his shape. i like the overall look


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:24 AM) : 

that looks like a Hackett suit to me...they use that sleeve button design a lot...


Anonymous st said ... (1:51 AM) : 

Good suit but maybe too heavy for him. The cigar and the watch are not the perfect signs for a good taste...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:03 AM) : 

It is indeed a shame about the watch. However, it does bring character to the look. But I still think that a more subtle choice would have been better. Otherwise it's a lovely photo and the suit is perfectly worn :)


Anonymous Bob Mack said ... (2:07 AM) : 

Hey! this is the same guy who was wearing the mix of military and business a few months ago!

Its so great to see this guy again, and I like that he consistently goes for the dashing james bond look.

Scott, I'm seeing these pics with new perspective after reading the notes in your book (that I got and devoured this weekend :)) Any plans for releasing a Part 2!?


Blogger The Viceroy said ... (2:48 AM) : 

Dapper suit, just a pity it screams "Hackett" and "co-sponsoring deal" a bit too loudly: The tacky 2-2 button pattern is now to be found on many RTW Hackett suits and is simply unnecessary in such a well-cut and pretty obviously up-market suit. IWC has been providing watches for the recent Hackett catalogues. All a tad too corporate for someone who spares no effort to exude the Sloane Range attitude. Nevertheless, the suit as such is a beauty. Watch is probably considered by many a nice modern touch, breaking the seriousness of the classic suit but I would prefer a more restrained "city" wtch, maybe a Reverso? Oh, no, wrong corporate partner...


Blogger mihaela m said ... (3:09 AM) : 

so cool....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:34 AM) : 

a tinge of robert de niro about him


Blogger Gaj said ... (4:39 AM) : 

Either he is too heavy for the suit or the suit is too bulky for him. The front buttons look out of proportion. The 2&2 on the sleeve screams off the hook Hackett.
The watch needs to go, perhaps a sleeker in town watch in silver or platinum. Sorry, this ensemble is just not working for me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:41 AM) : 

The grey flannel is an eternity of elegance and perfect style for the Pitti

The fabrics is a bit heavy, but for his age is perfect

Elegant man.

i bit show off isn´t it?
that way of showing the watch....ummm!!...that´s not real has to be more subtle, nice try though...


Blogger RB said ... (7:48 AM) : 

This return of double breasted suits is 1. too predictable 2. too redolent of the 80s way too soon.

Try to come up with something original, Mr Hackett.


Blogger Eddie said ... (8:01 AM) : 

Handsome classic style. Wonder what kind of shoes he was wearing...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:19 AM) : 

In Italy is quite common sporting big watches (Audemars Piguet, Rolex, Officine Panerai etc.) with a fine suit. The trend seems to be towards chunkier watches e.g. U-boots

"The fabric seems clunky and the cut just makes it worse."

.....Are you serious?'s January in Milan....a heavy flannel is the perfect fabric for this environment....not surprisingly given who he is the suit is cut perfectly and has a nice personal touch (the buttons).....the cigar adds a raffish look....agree about the watch's way too heavy and clunky for this type of suit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:54 AM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:47 AM) : 

He looks like a chic RAF officer. The cigar and the watch balance the beef of the DB tweed. I hope I look a tenth as good at his age.


Anonymous HOT + COOL said ... (10:28 AM) : 

Classic. This dude could be out of The Maltese Falcon. Great style never changes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 AM) : 

Fantastic, but needs two tweaks: a more refined watch and a little bit of cuff showing. Otherwise, extraordinary.

He reminds me of Mr Big


Blogger Lucas Jones said ... (11:49 AM) : 

that suit is perfect. so is the hair. good grief that suit is so perfectly cut...and the fabric, sheesh.



Anonymous Tyler said ... (12:19 PM) : 

I'd have to say that the dark, small buttons make for a great compliment to the dark fabric, but the suite just seems a bit to leisurely cut towards the hips. I would also have to say that the watch really doesn't work here, since it diverts from the subtleness of the buttons and presumably the tie.


Anonymous Johnny Ashbury. said ... (2:32 PM) : 

loving the double buttons!


Blogger Bob said ... (3:03 PM) : 

I think that suit is vintage. All the better. It is the very best. This is why.

Anonymous Goose said ... (5:19 AM) : 

I don't know about the watch, it seems a bit like he borrowed it from someone... it's too flashy with this outfit, even if it makes it 'less boring'. Too bad we can't see the tie.

Would have liked to see a classic gold watch though. He'd look great with a brown leather breifcase too.

The spacing on this man's buttons is typically associated with the Coldstream Guards, the second most senior of Her Majesty's five regiments of foot, forming the Brigade of Guards.

I'm surprised to see the massive sports watch with the suit... not sure why some like this look. Personally, I think a Cartier tank or something would look much better.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:29 PM) : 

The angle of his shoulders not being squared makes his torso seem terrifically wide at the waist when compared to visual shoulder breadth.


Anonymous Jimbob said ... (1:45 PM) : 

I think the watch is to garish, he would look better with a smaller more elegant watch. Although I'm probably just a little jealous i don't have an IWC xx


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:40 PM) : 

Lose the watch and he could star in a British-made film from the 1940s. He's rocking it.

Anonymous rio555 said ... (5:10 PM) : 

mm very classy. the wave in his hair adds a good finish haha
i agree w/ a comment somewhere above- i think he could've done better w/ a more simplistic silver watch. but i feel the one he has on rite now adds a hint of his gadgety personality? =]


Anonymous rio555 said ... (6:07 PM) : 

mm classy style. i think the hair gives the perfect finishing touch to this look! though, i think it would've been better if he chose like a silver more simplistic watch... but the fact that its iwc top gun is a statement in an of itself. i like it nonetheless, because it shows a hint of his gadgety personality =]
