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 think i've seen a kiton with that fabric.

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.

I too have noticed that Jesse is in need of a sartorial intervention. I don't know what is going on with Jesse Jackson's clothes. He's never put together.

How about some George Melly?

Tubby Smith doesn't disappoint often either.

Larry Brown always looks contemporary, sharp, well groomed and sharp.

Professionalism is paramount in a business designed to sell to families, and a decent outfit doesn’t hurt to that end.

I was going to get to Larry Brown! Always well put together IMO. And I like his glasses.

I think we have to make the distinction between sharp and well-dressed. Now, being sharp necessitates being well-dressed; however, being well-dressed does not mean one is sharp. Sharp is flamboyant, slick almost and always involves some sort of compelling personality. Clothing is chosen with especial regard to cut and color in a way that aims to make people notice. Accessories may be used to further the look especially in terms of jewelry. Dean Martin was sharp while Bobby Darin wasn't.

Is it necessarily a good thing being a sharp dresser?

"A suit from me, Mickie, it's not a drunken scream. It's line, it's form, it's rock of eye, it's silhouette. It's the understatement that tells the world what it needs to know about you and no more. Old Braithwaite called it discretion. If somebody notices a suit of mine, I'm embarrassed because there must be something wrong with it. My suits aren't about improving your appearance or making you the prettiest boy in the room. My suits are not confrontational. They hint. They imply. They encourage people to come to you. They help you improve your life, pay your debts, be an influence in the world."
