And that pic is from a Gay parade. Very casual outing. This one below might be my favorite.

The jacket does not fit him correctly, but the colors are wonderful on him.

That's one sharp, cool customer.

That's almost certainly Kiton MTM.

The collar is shifting away from the shirt, the sleeves are too long and the overall jacket seems a bit long as well.

Being that he's Wilkes Bashford's regular lunch buddy, I'd say you were right.

I was about to say Nicolosi or Corvato, but that is obviously a Brioni that he picked up about a size too big. Must have been in a rush that day. Kiton fits everyone perfectly off the rack.

The first pic is probably some church gathering or other type meeting. A similar get together by the "white man" will probably yield a lot less people, if any, in suits. The black community still takes pride in dressing up for certain occasions, even if you think their taste is quite suspect. You would be hard pressed to go to a black church and find a man not wearing a suit. You would be hard pressed to go to a non-black church and find a man wearing a suit.

Well said.

Isn't Wilkes Bashford better known for Brioni?

No, Corvato would be tight as a superhero costume and Nicolosi ... well, I wouldn't know where to start.

I love solid silk squares. Can't get enough of them, especially when they match the tie.


Jacket is wonderful (he would benefit tremendously from MTM or bespoke, seems to have shoulder issues).

Edit: and that might actually be a Kiton!

I went to see Jesse Jackson speak in the Western Addition yesterday and, my, did he ever look terrible--like he had swapped clothes with Dan Burton or something (ill-fitting blue blazer, nondescript off-white shirt, big gut). I recently saw Gavin Newsom walking around with his cuff buttons undone. WLB would never descend to such depths; the turned back shirt cuff over the jacket is something from an entirely more advanced and confident league.
