Was it like happening upon a unicorn?

I saw Vanessa Williams riding a bicycle during a lunchtime stroll around town this summer. 

 

waay easier on the eyes than Nick's ankles to be sure.

Do you?

 

I can sort of see why; nice complementary colours & decent fit. But really, what event on earth would you wear that combination for?

 

It's like an ersatz morning suit (yes, I know it's not one really; I mean the overall instant visual effect) with the matching trousers swapped out for cream flannels. Like someone was going to a wedding, spilt something on his trousers, and then had to wear his cricket whites which were sitting in a bag in the boot of his car. It's just, well, weird. Too much formal on top; too casual below, and not just slightly different, but from completely opposite ends of spectrum.

 

Now, the idea of a pearl grey jacket & cream flannels; that I really do like. Just get rid of the waistcoat (or use a non-matching one) and use a tie that isn't the same colour as the jacket.

It´d look nice on a summer wedding, but maybe ditching the vest.

I understand the functional aspects of this outfit are severely limited, but I really like the colors and textures here. I also like how it's just a touch different from so many other fits. How many gray suits, navy suits, and a combination of blue/gray have we seen? This goes for white pants and a adds a vest...it looks very stylish. I like how they went with a cutaway collar as well; it suits the tie. So I guess it's just because of the way they step away from we constantly see that make me like it.

+1, although I kind of like the tie, the waistcoat is what really screws it up, imo.

Well, if that's the spirit (beautifully funky yet largely unwearable) I much prefer it when the wearer goes all out in that direction:

That looks completely wearable for him. For mere mortals, perhaps not so much.

It's a cool look but depends as SB said who can pull it off...Put me in that and i'll look like a clown.
