very understated classic. love this.

It's a thin line: narrow as new and narrow as...tired. This guy does some straddling, I'd say.

The Poland Spring water bottle is the Must Have accessory for this season! Seriously though, looks good but a little too "Man In Black". And yes, the obligatory "But Where's the Freaking Cuff?"


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:57 PM) : 

That is Ralph's son, Andrew...very


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:18 PM) : 

no cuff showing . . .


Blogger Jonathon Morgan said ... (2:42 PM) : 

Totally classic. I love it.

Although his head looks to big for the suit, handsome suit - adorable face!


Blogger positive_negative said ... (4:08 PM) : 

nothing beats a well tailored suit. i can never seem to find a good one though, or better yet a good tailor.

i have unusually long arms- my wrists hit my mid thigh light an orangutang, and i can't find a suit that doesn't have every other feature elongated without doing some major tailoring.

any suggestions? also, where do you all think a suit jacket should on a man? thanks in advance

i think he looks delicious.

oh scott....where are the cuffs my dear?


Blogger Young Gent said ... (10:53 PM) : 

Trends come and go, but ah, the timeless look of a well cut suit, crisp white shirt and classic tie. But wait, what about a pocket square?

Speaking of...What about the pocket square in the daily business (non fashion) world? Too much? Save it for special occasions? Ladies, any opinion???

I think in his case it's better to not show cuffs, because they would highlight the shortness of his arms. (Kind of like no cuffed trousers for shorter legs.)

I'd suggest going "Made To Measure", it's a little more expensive than off the rack, but if you need a lot of tailoring it might balance out, and the suit will be properly proportioned.

Mr. Lauren has a (rather expensive) MTM program, as does Brooks Brothers (as far a walk-in stores). Hickey Freeman is a little more expensive (but better construction) and from our friends in the Great White North there is my favorite Samuelsohn.

Their websites would be at the usual place.

Good luck
Billy Oblivion.

p.s. sometimes you can find a good tailor if you keep asking around. Especially if you keep asking about having a suit custom made.

What city are you in?

Goodness, we've all become so sartorially educated that we demand that cuff!I must say I thought the same thing and perhaps it should show, but doesn't this guy look impeccably tailored,not a stitch out of place?! So I'll forgive him, but just this once, I still want to be a member of this blog after all.

Classic. Will look as good in 2016 as now.


Blogger Camille Acey said ... (12:07 PM) : 

This guy is adorable, but he looks too stuffy and buttoned up for being such a young man with such a cute face.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:52 PM) : 

nice suit, but the shoulders are out of proportion to his head and he needs to show more cuff.


Blogger DNTD said ... (12:11 PM) : 

Very nice ! Well cut, simple, sleek. Luuurve this.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:48 PM) : 

Wonderful look! So elegant! Two parts of this make it for me. First, the shirt has a perfect roll in the collar. You don't see any shirt above the tie. The collar just rolls out to either side of the tie. This looks neat and cool and very European. Most shirts don't fit this well and you often see a space and extra fabric above the tie. Second, you see the opening between his left arm and his middle in the way his jacket is tailored. The "pinch" is perfect. What a fit. If you have this nice a shape, show it off, boy!

Simply perfect
