On the Street in NYC....Duncan Quinn - Page 2

Dunc's been scowling for years. It's just the way he is. And he's sported a faux hawk for about the same amount of time. I think it generally works for him (and for some others).

On second look, I noticed the patch pockets -- I loathe patch pockets on any jacket, especially a suit jacket. Still generally like the overall look, but don't care for some of the details.

He looks like a suited up American Jackass following Katherine Wheelock's latest advice. I think this is the worst Sartorialist shot because the subject looks like a truely contrived fool.

Is the faux hawk the blue blazer for metrosexuals?

Such venom this morning. I can think of many of the Sartorialists subjects who look a lot worse, such as the dude in velvet.

Who is Katherine Wheelock?

She's the idiot at Details who proclaims when certain "trends," such as wearing cufflinks, are over.

The velvet guy didn't look mean.

Re Duncan Quinn, like others I hate the patch pockets, the tie knot, and think the jacket and pants are too tight. Also, I hope that is a RTW shirt and not his MTM, because the cuffs are too small for his watch, and the sleeves are too short.

He just looked goofy.

I think some people just look "mean" or "sad." A friend of mine is always told that he looks as if his dog was run over by a car, but he's actually a very chipper kind of guy.

As for this Wheelock, I've never noticed her in Details. Sounds useless.

I think I actually first saw Duncan Quinn in an issue of Last way back when. Might have been the NYC shoestore issue. Didn't know who he was then, but thought his scowl attempt was funny then too. He had the rooster going then too.

HACKING patch pockets have a tendency to do that. Of course I've never seen them before, so that could be why!

I usually like the Duncan Quinn aggressive look, as I secretly wish I was a bad-ass instead of an academic. But... WHY are there creases in his shirt cuffs? This irritates the hell out of me -- you see it all the time on muppet TV presenters who don't know better -- it's as if they were ironing the creases into the sleeves and thought "Screw it... I'm going to take this all the way into the cuffs!"

Many times those who look the most bad ass are the least and vice versa.

The most obvious problem I see here, and I am surprised no one has noted it, is the extremely high waist created by the cut of the jacket. The rest of the fit issues are pretty minimal - If he pulled his jacket sleeves down they would probably look okay, and the chest and shoulders could have more room, but otherwise it looks reasonably good. But look how high his waist appears to be because the hips fit and the chest is too small and tapers to well above his real waist.

His head seems out of proportion, like a bad photoshop job where one person's head was stuck on another's body without scaling it first.

That said, I actually do like the colours here quite a bit. The fit is a little extreme for my taste, but I like the direction of a closer fit.

To me, everything looks great on this picture - except for that tie knot
