Typical of double breasted vest fits?  Misfits common in professional photo-shoots?

Derek's Plaid suit is a perfect fit

I think his hands in his pockets may have some bearing on the pulling...
This photo-shoot is the same with hands out of pockets:

I have that same vintage tie bar. I've never worn it. You're inspiring me to dig it out.

I think we were all dazzled by the beautiful FIH tie knots, superb cut back collars and amazing quality suit fabric (plus the woman nestling up to him wink.gif )

Well, the classical ideal of being well dressed involves colors, patterns and textures that complement and contrast each other. Think of it as a conversation.

I know Isaia lookbooks have a rep for being over-the-top, but it depends on who's styling them. For ex, check the last picture from the F/W 2012:



See how the shirt and tie relate to the purples and browns in the suit, even though the shirt has a blue ground. See how much more lively and interesting it is than a solid white shirt a white square and navy tie would be. There is a conversation, but it's not loud at all.

They do look good mixed and matched don't they? i hate smoking but even the cigarette looks stylish. Conclusion, hanging out with Derek will sure get you noticed! Two peacocks are better than one! wink.gif

This gives a checkered suit a bit more colour variation and overall interest, albeit with a very subdued ps
Jut an idea

Paul Smith cufflinks and watch, Armani silver pinkie ring, shirt Acorn fabrics,London shirtmaker

Very cool! The beauty of the arrow bar is that it doesn't really pierce the tie. It's an optical illusion. It's like one of those fake "arrow through the head" gags.

Could you use this in business? If YES (just)? then IMO it ain't peacock.

Is the shirt white or pink on a white collar?

It's a fantastic combo a grenadine red tie against a blue jacket, but the white shirt (if jts all white) and ps is a bit conservative: grenadine is used to tone down noisy shirts.. IMO close but things to work on.

Peacocks took a long time to evolve their plumage..

It's a nicely cut jacket BTW, it sits nicely flat against your chest.
