On the Street in NYC...Oliver of Domenico Vacca - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Honestly, I could care less for all these rules that people put on dressing. I just go by what I think looks good, and usually it works out.

The reverse puff for handkerchiefs seems rather rare.

Jovan, no one is talking about rules here, just aesthetics. That would also not have been my choice of pocket square. Other than that, looks good. The interest is in the cut and quality, rather than flashy colors.

The rules exist for a reason. I've seen a lot of people try and break them and fail hilariously.

You're right, I think. The same argument about it being both stark and boring goes, though.

You put the finger on it. Thank you.

You're welcome. I break some rules, not many, but this one I believe in and this picture of Oliver is a great example.

This look is very classical, here is a picture of Sir Connery from the early 60's.
Alot of similarity, and Connery does it better with minimal simplicity:

The negative is that can be a bit borish/simple.
The positive is that it seems always elegant and appropriate for any situation.

it has a very Sean Connery era, classic James Bond feel.

The clothing is Bond, but the attitude is more Bond Villian.

Is this the attitude you were thinking?

Ugh, stop making me laugh I'm going to get caught and get fired.

I really, really like the suit. I'm using it as an example for my WW Chan fitting, though I'm just going to request that mine be an overall slimmer cut.

Those shoulders are perfect!!
