Jig's up.

Crap. Are people allowed to retroactively adjust their scores?

Not if they have any integrity.

I'm surprised by how close to the mean my scores were. There were only two or three pictures where I deviated more than two points from it. Foo, Kobe and Agnelli got the highest ratings from me (8.0). My scorecard:

Quote:
01. Rating: 4.0

Reasons: True 3-button jackets look terrible; pick stitching is much too showy; shirt needs longer collar points; repp stripes aren't my cuppa (and this is a bad one). (I will overlook the lapel pin since he's obviously a politico.)

Impression: Totally soporific -- which is probably the point.


02. Rating: 5.0

Reasons: Would prefer the lapels wider, the gorge lower, the pants fuller, the shirt colored (in some light tint), and the hanky less billowy. Also unsure of the shoulders -- stiff and stuffy -- and the chest would benefit from some drape.

Impression: Impeccable to the point of lifelessness.


03. Rating: 5.0

Reasons: Operating in that fertile middleground between peacocking and sprezzatura, this outfit is about as au courant as it gets -- and therefore entirely void of personality or style.

Impression: Blogger gone wild #1


04. Rating: 8.0

Reasons: I'm normally a Foo fan, but he gets a lower rating than usual here because (1) he's too short to pull off a 6x2 (he'd be better off going the DOW route of a 4x2 with a wide overlap), and (2) the lapels need more belly (and maybe also a lower gorge -- can't make up my mind on that one ...).

Impression: DB wearers tend to be either fashionmongers, priggish aristocrats, or deeply, deeply eccentric.


05. Rating: 6.0

Reasons: I'm not big on 6x1s (or, as seems to be the case here, 6x2s buttoned as 6x1s), nor of white shirts worn in the daytime, nor of neckties in that particular shade of brown. That he's probably wearing a suit jacket rather than an odd jacket (in blithe disregard of THE RULES!) also does him no favors. All the same, there's an agreeable go-as-you-please vibe to this outfit.

Impression: Dashing haberdasher.


06. Rating: 3.0

Reasons: Tie is terrible (and ditto for the knot), the lapels are too skinny for his build, and these kinds of suits scream out for a white hanky. Overall, the outfit looks cramped and uncomfortable.

Impression: A day in parliament #1


07. Rating: 6.0

Reasons: Very GQ, but done well. If I were to improve the outfit (while retaining its spirit), I would exchange the plaid tie for a solid one and substitute a white linen hanky for whatever it is he's squeezed into the breast pocket. Would probably also lower the buttoning point and ditch the briefcase (this kind of silhouette is not for daytime wear).

Impression: Inoffensive evening wear, albeit with a whiff of the passé to it.


08. Rating: 6.0

Reasons: The shirt and tie patterns clash horrendously, hanky looks bulky, the chain attached to the lapel button hole looks precious (and makes the jacket look lopsided, like it's about to heel over).

Impression: Naples meets academia.


09. Rating: 5.0

Reasons: Not feeling the hanky (too turquoise) and the throatlatch (too tan). Nor am I very fond of the pattern of the coat or the unbuttoned collar-buttons. Tie is nice, though.

Impression: A peculiar mélange of the British and the Italian, which suggests we have an iGent on our hands ...


10. Rating: 5.0

Reasons: I'm always forgiving of guys who wear DBs, but this outfit is seriously let down by brutally bad pattern-matching and a hanky more fit for resort wear.

Impression: Blogger gone wild #2


11. Rating: 8.0

Reasons: Great evening wear, made all the more fitting by the peaked lapels. Might have wished for a white pocket square, but oh well ...

Impression: Garbed to the nines done good


12. Rating: 5.0

Reasons: Like his father, and unlike most British royalties, Prince Carl Philip of Sweden is a poor dresser. This getup -- featuring one of the most revolting ties I've ever seen and a suit jacket that almost buttons at the sternum -- bears testimony to that. The stripes are also too glaring to my taste (and I really consider stripes more suitable for nappy winter cloth).

Impression: Royal fail


13. Rating: 6.0

Reasons: The brogues are way too light for the dark suiting, which -- while we're at it -- looks like one of those flappy, wafer-thin jobs (but fair enough if he's on his way to the office), and white shirts are in my opinion only suitable for evening wear.

Impression: A day at the office #1


14. Rating: 7.0

Reasons: The shirt is obviously the pièce de résistance here, and ... I think it works. Love the brown colorway -- very homely.

Impression: Barbera swag


15. Rating: 5.0

Reasons: Tie is much too in your face, and I wish it were pulled up into his collar (I like it that it's a bit crooked, however). As usual with dark suits, I would rather he had rounded off the ensemble with a white hanky.

Impression: A day at the office #2


16. Rating: 6.0

Reasons: Hard to judge the fit when the sport coat is unbuttoned, but I find the overall composition pleasing in a down-to-earth way. That being said, I would prefer mid-grey pants in place of the air force blue ones he's got going here, and the breast pocket looks a bit forlorn.

Impression: 90s throwback.


17. Rating: 8.0

Reasons: This is Agnelli, of course, looking more British countryside than usual, and looking good. Note how he lets the tie blade hang loose -- sprezz done right.

Impression: The Man


18. Rating: 7.0

Reasons: Skillful pattern matching, in an unassuming way, but these kinds of dark-colored suits really need a hanky to set the outfit off.

Impression: A day at the office #3


19. Rating: 7.0

Reasons: Corduroy is a great look for television, and I love the grey shirt. Shame about the tie, though. A square would have been nice, but this outfit -- more so than most -- gets by anyway.

Impression: A day in the green room


20. Rating: 4.0

Reasons: I can see what he's trying to do with the shirt, but unlike with the Barbera pic earlier, this doesn't work. Also, worsted suits absolutely DEMAND a pocket square to tie the outfit together.

Impression: A day in parliament #2


21. Rating: 5.0

Reasons: Typical clueless #menswear outfit, crammed to the brim with as many trends and ideas as possible.

Impression: Blogger gone wild #3
