Do you honestly think this looks good? I'm all for color however one needs to know which to use and how to use them. Color just for the sake of color doesn't make a good look. Again, if you like this would you please explain why. Myself, I just don't care much for these colors and all of them put together makes it even worse to my eye.

What do you object to, John Doe? For me, the suit is certainly outside the business realm, but not inherently a clown suit. The failing to my eye is in the styling. The purple shirt and large-scale plaid tie make it somewhat cartoonish. With a subtle shirt and tie combo, this would be entirely possible for a person with personality to pull off.

I agree with your last sentence however I just think those colors are ugly, especially when put together as they are; it just becomes worse. De gustibus et coloribus non est disputandum.smile.gif

I would wear the jacket or pants as seperates. In a streetwear way. Could be cool.

Yakuza baby.

Well, this Dandy Wellington fellow is a singer. His style is more akin to performance wear than regular tailored clothing and his inspiration from 30's and 40's big band leaders is clear.

But for all intents and purposes it's un-wearable in 99.9% of situations in the real world. And I realise this is not the point, it certainly garnered them a lot of attention of the forums/tumblr so has probably worked well for the publicity side of things.

 

Much of what people wear here, most ordinary people would consider 'unwearable in the real world', yet we do it anyway. These are beautiful suits, well-cut in colours that are just a little removed from the average but not outrageous, and not anything like the Joker's outfits (which BTW are based partly on zoot suits, which is a whole topic in itself...). And yes, if I could afford them, I would most certainly wear them. There's no reason why I couldn't. I do have one suit that is equally as outrageous and beautiful.

 

Ich_Dien's answer is the most sensible one so far. There's a long, long conformity that ironically started with rebellion and in many ways male tailoring remains 'Brummelian'. Yet other currents continue to circulate and occasionally influence that mainstream a little. Think of British country suits. Think of Tommy Nutter in the late 60s and 70s in Britain. Or Ozwald Boateng in the 90s. Or indeed, this, which is actually far more restrained than any of those.

 

I'm always surprised that some men interested in style don't even seem to appreciate the varied currents within men's tailoring. It doesn't mean you have to wear these suits, and the particular combination of accessories in the publicity material is hardly compulsory, but I would expect people here at least to understand what they are trying to do, and appreciate the quality of the results.

Doubtful - they don't have punch-permed hair, ostentatious, gold-rimmed sunglasses and ill-fitting black suits...

Thighs are a bit tight for my taste, but I love the rest of it. Fabric, color, shoulder slope...I love it.
