I reckon I just assume it is a suit because it is the only thing that I wear...shog[1].gif

 It reminds me of that Rag & Bone stuff for some reason.

I also think the pickstitching is too prominent.

 

I was going to comment on the flaps and DB as well, but there were already many other problems.  Now that I sit down and imagine it, all of this craziness PLUS a double-breasted jacket and peak lapels is just too much.  Might as well thrown in a boater hat (with apologies to TTO) for good measure.  As to the color, you tend to favor pretty austere outfits (I seem to remember an all-black shoe collection) -- I'm not entirely sold that a saturated blue is out of the question for casual wear.  I have one in a similar color, though it's slightly darker, and I think it has a place so long as the rest of the attire is kept subdued... I haven't worn it out yet because I'm still on the fence about if it's in my comfort zone, but that's another story. wink.gif

You are right, I do favor more sober colors and combinations, but I just feel that even though from afar that outfit looks clean on second look there is just too much going on detail-wise, even with my tastes aside.

Also, I personally will never understand bracelets on a man. In my opinion other than what appears in a classic ensemble serves no other purpose than to gain more attention.

I would find that totally wearable with my personal standards if the pockets were normal and it had blue, or perhaps even grey buttons, and minus the watch, bracelets, eyeglass through the lapel buttonhole...

No, I wholeheartedly agree.  In terms of sobriety I was speaking to the issue of color alone.  I.e., the question lurking in all our minds of "is a satured blue a few ticks down from true navy ever acceptable?"

I like the loafers.

So, they are related

I think that he utterly rocks this look, which breaks so many SF rules so well, partly because it subverts everything one might expect of a guy of his age and social position. I can imagine that the exact same clothes would be a total disaster on many other people.

It doesn't get much more FU than this.

That is a much more succinct way of putting it!

The question is, did whoever made that DB suit for him have to wear welding goggles in order to avoid going blind from staring at that fabric?

I was thinking the same thing. He's turned himself into one, giant middle finger. So awesome it hurts.

Has anyone even noticed that the fabric on the jacket is turned on the bias and then turns out back to horizontal on the lapel?

I mean who thinks that shit up!?!?!?

As much as I want to hate the whole thing I think I must bow in supplication instead.....because somehow he 'owns it'.
