On The Street.......All-American Classics, New York

Ah, the tucked tie! I never, ever do that, and only partly because it looks vaguely silly to me. Mostly it's because I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do it successfully, with neither irony nor goofiness.

Too funny. It's hi/lo.

His "high rise" to her "low rise."

Not feeling it aesthetically but it's cute to look at.

Very cool - a sterotype couple - I know thirty-something look a like couples. He: businessman in suit, she: a blonde hair beauty with a simple Ralph Lauren chic.

Beautiful, happy couple. Great light, great feeling of movement. One teensy peeve -- this very ahtletic, toned, slender, extremely attractive lady is wearing pants that help demonstrate why low rise pants can be synonymous with "muffin top" for even the most willowy, elegant woman. You can see that she has a lovely figure -- yet they cause a miniscule bulge even on *her.* (I shudder to think what the sam cut would do to me.) I think the "What Not To Wear" ladies advise buying low-rise pants a size too large for this reason.

I think that's Charles Fagan, the director of Global Marketing at Polo. If it's not him, it's definitely his doppleganger.

This just screams "Ruling Class!" Off with their heads...

It is really refreshing to see something ´normal´for a change.The couple look relaxed and happy and their outfits match harmlessly.Thanks for showing us this pleasent picture.

she looks a lot like the French news reader Claire Chazal..I would say his look is more euro rather than Us as his suit is slim rather than boxy!

Funny. I don't know why I think this couple rockin' the All-American look isn't actually American.

Picture perfect.

too much americans


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:01 PM) : 

Wow, I'm SOOOOO not feeling the RL chic. Her outfit looks unflatteringly lumpy... and like she bought it at the Gap. Sorry, maybe I don't get it.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE his tie, though. Perfectly tucked in; great without a belt.


Blogger CB said ... (2:13 PM) : 

wonderful woman.


Blogger Deirdre said ... (2:27 PM) : 

His tie is tucked into his pants. Intentional?


Blogger The Spicers said ... (2:28 PM) : 

They are an attractive couple, but I'd suggest higher-rise pants for her.


Blogger Butch said ... (2:28 PM) : 

Yes, yes and yes! He's done a very nice job--and let's hear it for tucking one's tie into the top of one's pants, as he's done, when it's too long.

Nothing looks dumber--or more unkempt--than a tie hanging over one's fly. As most ties are overlong--especially for guys of less than six feet--well.....

great shot Sart


Blogger Asi Mod said ... (3:10 PM) : 

I think she is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love her hair, her posture, her smile, her clothes, everything about it.

She reminds me of Kelly Klein, post-Calvin Klein, of course.

They evoke a bright afternoon by the seaside with high wind. Hardly fit in the plain upper east side landscape.

Proof that there's nothing more chic than happiness.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:22 PM) : 

if by "all-american" you mean " totally boring"


Blogger The American in Paris said ... (12:56 AM) : 

I think the tucked in tie and the vulnerability of the lady's outfit are distracting us from the real jewel: his perfectly fitting suit. Notice how he isn't wearing a belt and it doesn't appear that he has suspenders. Notice how the suit falls perfectly from his neck down across his chest. The cut is beautiful and by the way it lays across his body I'd say the fabric is of a good quality. This photo is about his suit.

Indiana Chic, at it's finest! I'd guess the were from Carmel or Zionsville....wicked Polo field there!

I used to work with Charles when he was manager of the Polo Mansion. He got Ralph to do the skinny, unlined "Charles" tie with the small knot. Good work Sart on spotting one of New York's great men of personal style.


Blogger Andrew said ... (9:32 AM) : 

This is Charles Fagan, top brass at Ralph Lauren. When I worked in the store at 867 (1989-1994) he was the manager and taught everyone how to dress. His professionalism and attention to detail and to Ralph's vision are part of what has made the Polo name an enduring part of fashion for the last 40 years.

I like her refreshing lack of accessories. That and the white pants give her a carefree look.
