His tie is sticking out the bottom of his waistcoat !

had the same thought. then again, the model has a very different build than wooster, i think he makes much more out of it than the BB model.

I like a lot of very unconventional looks, but generally think Wooster looks mediocre. That Thom Browne thing is a few seasons old and it's more fashion than style. It's just kinda tired at this point.

I respect Baron's opinion. That said, let's all face it, Wooster is ridiculously photogenic. I'd love to look that good on camera. In person, he is striking, but really, a lot smaller, both physically and in terms of "presence", but whether his style is great or mediocre, he looks terrific on camera. I generally think that the short everything look is really played out; and I think that sometimes, Wooster doesn't play with volume enough for me to find him compelling, but he looks great here. To anyone who says "His style is dreadful", I'd urge you to either explain further, without any reference to classical proportions or color combinations, since that's obviously not the point. To the poster who disparaged his look on the basis of his tie showing facepalm.gif

I was at the NY show today, wish you had seen the Luigi Borrelli guy that makes the rounds of the blogs (not sure if he is the son, grandson or whatever). Think ballet tights, rolled up with 2 inches of ankles showing, jacket which barely reached the pants waistband and it being worn as if it were a Nike DriFit athletic shirt. I think his shoes were white distressed wingtips of some sort. Compared to him, Wooster looks like he is wearing Anderson and Sheppard. Of course, the bloggers that were there were shooting pics of him like he was a God confused.gif

I think the main reason Wooster looks good on camera is that he's so well groomed with great hair and a great face. It's the most striking part of his look.

His look is basically Thom Browne+incongruous shoes (often workboots)+vintage-y, workwear fabrics+a dash of camo+(often) oversized sunglasses. See:

He throws together a lot of menswear trends from the last 5 years, but not, in my admittedly subjective opinion, successfully. He's a product of his milieu, but he never transcends it. He's superficially transgressive, but that doesn't make him interesting or stylish.

Just my opinion.

This is skillful use of multiple grays. Thanks for posting it. The shirt sleeves are too long, but that is another matter.
