If Alfred Pennyworth had a dapper, younger brother who earned his money from an inheritance, henceforth he spent all his time testing out the best corner tables in every English pub and coffeehouse. And Gary Oldman has him on speed dial for advice on vintage eyewear.

 

 

 

Albert Hal Says:

 

"Almost the whole outfit is vintage. I think it´s much more fun to drop into a second hand shop and see what I can find. It’s like digging gold, sometimes you find a nugget. The challenge is to put cheap things together to make an interesting outfit. And I get attention from both men and women, and many compliments from people I don’t know, which makes it really fun." 

 

 

 

Brand breakdown:

 

Jacket: Bought at Mani, a vintage shop in Malmö

Hat: Borsalino

Shirt: Melka

Slipover: Boston Traders

Bow tie: Anne Surkamp Kramer

Glasses: Horn

If you were going to an interview at a high class office and you wore your best black suit, but then this guy walked in and told the hot receptionist he's there for the same interview. She offered him a bottle of VOSS water but only gave you a paper cup.

"Nature often presents a great palette of colors that influence the way I put outfits together. I recently witnessed a gorgeous sunset with a mixture of pink and purple haze. The pocket square is meant to stand out from the initial group of colors without clashing - like the cherry on top." 

 

 

 

Brand breakdown:

 

Suit: Ralph Lauren Purple Label

Shirt: Charvet

Tie: Barba Napoli 7-fold

Pocket square: Tom Ford

If you went to your 10-year college reunion feeling really good wearing an opened collared shirt and your favorite pair of pants - you know which ones. Then this guy showed up and no one cared about the pictures of your wife and kids anymore because they're too busy petting his lapels. It's freshman year all over again.  

 

 

 

luftvier Says:

 

"I'm a young attorney who runs his own neighborhood office. I do what I can to look professional, yet not draw conspicuous attention to myself with any flashy items. I'll admit to being influenced by the classic American and Ivy styles. Most of my suits are Brooks or Southwick. While the sack silhouette's not a favorite around these parts, it suits me well." 

 

 

 

Brand Breakdown:

 

Suit: Southwick Sack

Shirt: Charles Tyrwhitt

Tie: Tie Bar

Shoes: Florsheim Imperial Longwings (not pictured)

If you were attending university classes and on the first day you walked into Classic Literature expecting someone who resembled present day Peter O'Toole, but then this guy was sitting like a champ at the head of the room. Suddenly, all the girls took interest in extra credit and you set aside Saturday to go see a tailor.

 

 

 

RDiaz Says:

 

"This look was put together on the first day of fall, so it was a pleasure to bring back the layers. The new season inspired me to choose an appropriate color palette, mainly muted greens, browns and greys. I decided to go with brighter trousers and pocket square to liven it up a little - after all, summer had just ended, and despite the sudden drop in temperature, it was a sunny day!" 

 

 

 

Brand Breakdown:

 

Jacket: Emidio Tucci

Sweater vest: Emidio Tucci

Trousers: Emidio Tucci

Tie: Lester

Shirt: Charles Tyrwhitt

Pocket square: E&G Cappelli

Love that look, RDiaz; very much my style. Well done on the subtle coordination, especially in the tie + ps combo.
