On the Street....The Combination, Milano

I love the fit and proportion of the suit but ,for me, this shot is really about the super sophisticated tie-to-suit combination.

The jacket's double breast, wide lapels, and aggressive darting--particularly those crazy lapels--are not ideal for this gentleman's body size and shape. I really don't like the look; it is as if he is wearing someone else's jacket.

wow it really does fit him well the whole look is just so classy and i love the bag! if i ever had to get glasses, i would get his style. thanks :)


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (5:11 PM) : 

Definitely a sophisticated look and a great smile to go with it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:15 PM) : 

Great look,love his smile it lights up the suit and makes me feel happy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:19 PM) : 

I love shots like this, but I always feel like I'm missing something with only half the shot. I would love to see this dudes shoes and trouser lenght!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:22 PM) : 

Ideal choice of color for the DB... and the tie really stands out, the choice of a white shirt is interesting as a very light blue would've worked great too. He looks comfortable too, something very important when sporting a DB.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:27 PM) : 

like he´s out of a movie! Love the whole combination and the way he caries himself!

Un classique... Nice shot!

And did you see the bag ???? !!!! Wow ! Love it. Realy dareing. I like the smile too.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:40 PM) : 

now that is what I call a suit! Beautifully tailored, perfect fit, good quality fabrics... if only all suits could look like this... although it would make the morning commute a hell of a lot more boring as I wouldn't be able to indulge in the endless pleasure of dissecting the more hideous work outfits of fellow commuters...

LOVE a man who's not afraid to carry a 'manbag'. Takes style and balls. X


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:41 PM) : 

i love double-breasted suits!--but what about the vents?


Anonymous YogaSpy said ... (5:41 PM) : 

In a way, I agree with Robert that the look is slightly wacky and disproportionate. But I also admire his daring. Style often requires boldness, else blend into safe elegance. Here, the guy strikes me as confident and happy, with a contagious sense of humor.


Blogger Sing of Singature Style said ... (5:43 PM) : 

Nicely done, perfection.


Blogger X'tian Ou said ... (5:43 PM) : 

I feel like his smile has more attraction, love it!

the very happy grin doesn't hurt as well. just a great photo overall.


Blogger Sibila Losada said ... (6:04 PM) : 

crush on the jacket. perfect combination<3


Blogger Kyle said ... (6:11 PM) : 

I really like the double breasted trend showing up more and more this year. The big pinstripes go great with the very wide peak lapels! I'm usually iffy on lapels this big, but he gets it perfect here.


Blogger Kathleen said ... (6:13 PM) : 

Very sharp indeed! This suit makes quite the statement, and as you said the tie does make the perfect foil, just perfect. I very much love his Croc briefcase. Wonderful shade of deep brown, burgundy? Not sure, doesn't matter. Perfection all the way and a beautiful smile to top it all off.

This guy is truly happy in his own skin or even his own suit. Fantastic capture, love it!

a classic daddy look. love it


Anonymous John Wesley said ... (7:43 PM) : 

Despite the bold pinstripes/chalkstripes, this gentleman is definitely wearing the suit; the suit is not wearing him. Also avoids looking gangsterish. (And could so easily.)

One small problem: He is not wearing inner DB button buttoned. Results are bunched-up fabric; right lapel too wide and out of shape.



Blogger notanymore said ... (7:54 PM) : 

This is the kind of suit I wish I could pull off, but being so skinny, I think it wouldn't work on me.


Blogger Lee Oliveira said ... (8:01 PM) : 

Forgive me for asking but who is that? I've seen him before. Love his style. That bag is to die for


Blogger Francesca Robertson said ... (8:01 PM) : 

ya the suit is out of this world, and mixing patterns w tie and suit is great

zoom in on the bag please. he does sport it handsomely.


Blogger SallyO said ... (9:28 PM) : 

Great dimples!


Blogger Vinda Sonata said ... (10:58 PM) : 

he got grace
and style!


Blogger Amy Golden said ... (11:53 PM) : 

This man is absolutely darling, but I simply cannot understand a bold, all over pinstripe like this on anyone.


Blogger Celia said ... (1:07 AM) : 

Whoa, never thought a small man could do big lapels.


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:09 AM) : 

nice bag!


Anonymous Jay Rowden said ... (2:14 AM) : 

This guy look super cool, though I can't bring myself to even so much as try on a double breasted suit!!! On him though, it works. I am loving the croc skin bag too...

Great pic and so chic look! well done!


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:06 AM) : 

Agree a lot with Robert...doesn't really look like he is wearing his own suit. And the tie doesn't seem to match as well as it should.


Blogger LE CALZATURE said ... (5:04 AM) : 

I love the Double-breasted, the look so elegant...


Blogger Nong Bee said ... (5:17 AM) : 

Love his glasses. Quite similar to the ones I have.

Not only is the tie and suit combination amazing, the purse looks wow too. Charming!

absolutely perfect...I love the jackett!!! Beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:28 AM) : 

I have also seen this man before, in fact somewhen in may this year on The Sartorialist. I immediately remembered his nice smile with a little tooth space.

Great picture as well.


Blogger Cameron Adams said ... (7:01 AM) : 

Patterns of tiny check, broad stripe and reptile harmonize. What if the cut of his jacket seems a bit theatrical? Originality rocks.


Anonymous Dana said ... (7:03 AM) : 

What a fun look. It must be amazing to open your closet to a choice of suits. I imagine he has quite a few. He looks great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:26 AM) : 

Haven't we seen him before? He's very cute and nicely dressed as well. Great smile!


Blogger John said ... (8:48 AM) : 

the folded "inner part" of the DB suit is a little bit "directed" :-), but the rest is perfect, very nice.


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:09 AM) : 

I am not sure I can see the attraction in either the suit or the tie. The suit is just a DB suit with the inner button unbuttoned, which forces one side to fold. For the tie / suit combination: perhaps the picture does not do justice to the colors or a picture of just that detail would have been more helpful?

Thanks for sharing.


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

Beautiful fabric and cut. a bit wide on the lapels, perhaps dates it to the 30's. Otherwise, totally flawless: tie, shirt collar, pocket square,vintage croc "portfolio" (its not an oversized purse?)I search men's store racks for this color chalkstripe, and wish Sart. has more information on suit, is it custom? Burberry? Lauren purple? Oxxford? Help! Anybody?I want it.


Blogger Lou said ... (10:48 AM) : 

I agree the tie is genius - very subtly echoing the color in the buttons, and of the purse. What amazes me most is that he succeeds in making this harsh a pinstripe look smart. He has the perfect slender build for it. Beautiful man, beautiful smile, beautiful style.


Anonymous Annelie said ... (11:08 AM) : 

Very stylish...


Anonymous Laurent said ... (11:25 AM) : 

Now realise this could be Rubinacci suit? I hear Milano is around 30C,92F+ recently, if this is a typical, light wool/silk Rubinacci with miminal lining it could work in Miami! When is their online store opening?


Blogger luciano said ... (12:12 PM) : 

im not the biggest fan of stripes within suits but when its done this elegantly along with the beautiful tailoring it can't be refused. thank you for making me change my mind on striped suits at least for now.


Anonymous Man On A Budget said ... (1:02 PM) : 

I just love that his smile lines perfectly parallel the stripes on his lapel.


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

I don't know how he picked out this tie, but it does work, subtly metallic somehow, same as buttons. Also, it picks up on the croc man bag. He gives the whole suit a twist by using that tie, otherwise he might look like a banker.


Blogger Christina said ... (1:19 PM) : 

This guy totally pulls off the double breasted pin striped suit! He looks stellar.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:30 PM) : 

This pic makes me smile. He's happy, he's well put together and he's confident.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:04 PM) : 

I really like the double-breasted suit. There's not enough of them out there nowadays! Plus the details are fab...



Blogger Unknown said ... (3:21 PM) : 

Good !!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:30 PM) : 

Great look! The lapels, the collar of the shirt as well as the tie fit perfectly together. Also the sleeve length of shirt and jacket are perfect. It's a bit dramatic but impressive! Thomas.Franz


Blogger luckybastard said ... (3:33 PM) : 

it would look better if he would button the suit properly on the inside. if he did that on purpose, it looks affected. if he did that accidentally, it looks off. either way it detracts from an otherwise well-made suit with awesome material. tie is nice but what is really cool about it is it looks to have a texture to it. needs stays or stiffer stays in his collar though, especially with a db suit. nice reptile, though...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 PM) : 

Looks a bit cheap when the stripes are not aligned with the cut at the front. The stripes are not matched at the lapels either. He looks happy though...


Anonymous Jason Seaward said ... (8:23 PM) : 

i really hate the size of the lapels on this jacket, atleast on this man. it looks really strange.

still loving that bag though. You've posted a picture of him with it before. it's really amazing.


Anonymous Melisa said ... (5:01 AM) : 

What a great smile! I love the lines around his eyes, it's a face that hints at a lot of laughter. I like the colour combo of the bag and the suit, and the exquisite attention to detail, but it's the smile that takes it forward.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:16 AM) : 

Beautiful proportions and subtle colour combination. Superb in every way and reminds me very much of Cary Grant!


Blogger Eilish said ... (7:56 AM) : 

i love his bag and everything else, especially his big grin :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:56 AM) : 

this is really nice. the tie's color is enhanced by his skin tone.

His glasses are brilliant


Anonymous April C. said ... (9:10 PM) : 

His smile is quite contagious. Beautiful.


Blogger TheHypeAround... said ... (11:39 PM) : 

This gentleman is impeccably stylish in the wonderfully tailored suite. It's so refreshing to see the return of the classic double breasted jacket. Now I feel like watching "The Thin Man " with William Powell.


Anonymous Nicholas Gomez said ... (12:16 AM) : 

Isn't his tie sort of furled FORWARD?


Blogger Couture Coco said ... (4:38 AM) : 

It shouldn't work but it does. He looks fabulous! That's style.


Blogger Jazzbuff630 said ... (2:17 PM) : 

This fellow has a happy spirit that emanates through the photograph.

I totally dig the suit, although he really should have the inner button buttoned. I like the tie, as well, and I would rock this suit and tie combo, a la the Prince of Wales.

I hope he's wearing some brown suede lace-ups.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:42 AM) : 

Your never fully dressed without a smile!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:46 PM) : 

I simply love people with such a truly smile. This blog has the best dressed smiles I have ever seen.

Why I never smile like that????


Blogger waisted blazer said ... (12:16 PM) : 

Great colours, tie works well with bag and this dapper chap's skin tone. Wonder what he had on his feet?

Not sure about the fit (could just be the way he is standing) double breasted looks a bit pulled to onside. Would normally advise a single breasted coat. Otherwise V nice!


Blogger Román Iglesias said ... (5:31 AM) : 

How happy he seems haha
Love tie


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:00 AM) : 

What a great suit - I really like double breasted jackets at the moment. So very "Wall Street"! :-)
And the bag makes it even better.
