"for an NBA player is damning with faint praise. It'd say that's elegant my any standards.

Wearing one skinny suit to make it worse.

He doesn't look that bad. If the jacket had a bit more length it would be pleasing.

+1. I like it. If you want to do fashion/"modern"/"slim" suits, this is the way to do it.

ugh! trendy trendy fashion victim jeggings trousers. Cuffs to large to be in proportion to the super slim legs (as is also the trendy fashion). Boots totally too casual for a suit, contrast buttons totally inappropriate for a suit. Hope those knees don't get streched out and baggy with a few wearings.

This will be one of those extreme looks that we look back upon with laughter in years to come. Even if it does look 'cool' to the fashion forward eye of the minute.

Although the fabric and the quality of construction/workmanship appear to be high quality. Hopefully he's well enough off to throw the suit away when it becomes 'so last Tuesday' later this season or next. As all super trendy things will do.

Look at Ich Dien's post in WAYRN today if you want to see a slim look done well.

Gdot, I agree with you on the boots, they don't work with the suit at all. As far as looking back and laughing, I don't think that will happen. Skinny suits have been a favourite in the mod community since the sixties, and is still considered quite cool. They seem to come into, and go out of, fashion in cycles, but they´re never really gone.

Being a fan of that kind of music I will probably always have a soft spot for the whole aesthetic connected with it, even though I don't wear my clothes that slim.

From a fashion-oriented perspective, he looks great. From an SF perspective, he has more style than the overwhelming majority of posters (including myself in that category...)

Oh - I have NOTHING against a skinny cut suit. As a matter of fact I quite like them in general, particularly when they are done exactly as they were in the sixties. Although I'm no fan of the skinny AND too short suit which is the current fashion victim style. Nor do I care the lack of balance in that poster's look, ie, skinny pocket flaps and probably skinny lapels and overly large cuffs. (It's a matter of aesthetic balance, not fashion trends or sartorial rules.)

I've lived through and participated in at least two revivals of the skinny pant (Once in the early 80s and starting again at least 10 years ago, if not more.) But the particular version in that photo is taken too far in every regard, and that is my problem with it. Taken too far in a few regards can be a great thing if everything else is classic. But everything together and it's just fashion victim.

Only time will tell - but if history is any indication of the future ANY look taken to that extreme will soon enough be the feature of 'I can't believe we dressed like that' comments of the future.

To each their own, I completely respect the 20 something's interest in pushing the boundries of fashion, I did it according to the taste of the times when I was that age too. I'm just warning that it is NOT timeless. So don't invest a large sum of money in it unless you can afford too. And don't fool yourself into thinking you will be willing to look like that particular poster 10 years from now. Because I'm telling you now you won't! Or if you do you will look terribly out of place.
