Not very good. The jeans are really bad. High rise stonewashed crappy denim from the 80s. Poor looking shirt. The coat doesn't look that bad though.

Oh, and I forgot the dress belt buckle. Horrendous.

You guys are way to harsh on this guy. I think he looks better than 90% of men I saw on my commute this morning.

I agree that some of the comments are quite extreme. I think the look is pretty good, even if I wouldn't wear it myself. The jacket is nice.

I have two quibbles with it: the aforementioned jeans. They appear to be dowdy. And the sunglasses. The roundish frames accentuate his chrome dome.

I like it, at first sight. Specifically the coat color, tie and square. Even the buckle could look OK 'live', although it it is a bit suspect in a still picture with those jeans. Still, you are probably right about the jeans. They seem to be tired weekend beaters, brought into active service out of retirement.

Yes, she appears anxious to get away from the man in the foreground.

Welllll...except for the jeans, which seem cheap and shapeless, the separate components of the get-up are all right. I can't stand ties with jeans (admittedly, I've seen it work with navy gilt-button blazers and Gucci bit loafers, - it's the Eurotrash look), but I suppose this might be a matter of personal taste. I just find the resulting look very incongruous - a turtleneck or an open shirt with a scarf, or a cravat for the brave, would look far better.

In my eyes, it's the combination of items that fails. If this get-up was worn with matching trousers, he would get away with it completely, but the pair of jeans ruins it.

LA Guy: Thanks for the "German businessman silhouette" expression. I will use it well. A friend of mine used to say that people dressed like this looked like mobile phone salesmen...that was my first associaton when seeing the photo.

He comes across as very "salesmannish", not that there's anything intrinsically wrong with that, but it's not something I would wear like this.

Being strict, but unfair...
