Him I know! He used to be (is?) the maitre'd at Cafe Sabarsky. He collects soocer jerseys and offered to literally buy the shirt off my back. I see him all the time downtown - always very well put together, and favors bowties. Nice chap - I believe he's Austrian...

I like it a lot. He looks a bit eccentric to begin with so the bowtie works with it. I really like the suit paired with the blue gingham shirt as well as the way he's done his pocket square. He seems to be holding some kind of black quilted jacket (?) that I hope he doesnt intend on putting on over this outfit.

I have to say, I'm a sucker for a brown pinstripe. And I like that he continued the casual feel of the suit with the gingham shirt. Not quite sold on the bowtie ...

I usually don't like brown suits, but perhaps that's because they are not usually done well. This look I like very much. It's very sharp.

This suit reminded me a bit of the costume worn by the latest fellow to play "Doctor Who" in the UK:

Not sure that I dig the flat lapels and the big glasses. The bowtie and shirt combo work with the color of the suit, but the overall cut of the suit leaves a bit to be desired. An interesting look overall - I'd give it a 7 of 10.

It looks like he stole the bowtie off the neck of the guy from a couple days ago who was wearing the blue overcoat and spectator loafers. That being said, I quite like it, although it is one of my stated ambitions to become an eccentric of the old Victorian England variety.

Really like this combination but what's up with buttoning the top button on the jacket? Let it roll, dude.

Love brown pinstripe suits. Most people don't seem to but nice to see some people here who do, now i just need to find one i can afford.

To me, this guy looks more like Dr. Who than the actor who plays Dr. Who. After all, isn't Dr. Who supposed to be a somewhat idiosyncrathic alien (or timelord or whatever)?

These days, not dressing like a slob is eccentric!

I have a brown pinstripe suit too. Never know how to wear it. Can think of pairing it with cream-coloured shirts and tan/burgundy solid colour/small motive ties and brown suede/leather captoes. Any suggestions?

Not too bad as a whole, but the suit looks very cheap.
