I love this interpretation.

Kinda 1979 for me. I do like the coat, as I favor a more tailored look, but the trousers need some work. It can't be that comfortable -- the model looks miserable. Where are you finding these images? They look like runway shots -- current season?

This is YSL spring 2005. Vogue and W post slideshows of current season (i.e., next season) designer menswear at: http://www.style.com/fashion....ex.html Members of this forum tend to be focused on how items will look on themselves (or on advising others). That is probably not the way to look at photos of fashion shows. I don't see why someone has to be exclusively aligned to fashion in the sense of what is classic or fashion in the sense of what is innovative. I appreciate the diversity.

I would set the coat buttons closer together, shorten the trousers, and fill out the legs a bit. Otherwise, not bad.

Alexis, don't you know any men who aren't anorexic? I have picked bigger pieces of meat out from between my teeth than some of these guys. and, by the way, aren't his pants a little too long? i like a drape as much as the next guy, but he sort of looks like he is wearing somebody else's pants.

Firstview, if you have a subscription, has full collections. Incomprehensibly, GQ UK also has the slideshows (mens collections only. I liked the YSL 2005 campaign, and I do like this look. Unlike the others, I have nothing against the trousers. I think that the fitted jacket with slightly elongated, roped shoulders, and the slightly flaired trousers are a good contrast. I might even have made them a little roomier (like the F/W 2003 YSL collection. They are *slightly* too long though.

I agree with this to a point. However, the looks will eventually be worn, and interpreting a runway look for actual consumption is a standard part of a stylist's job.

Excessive pant length may be a reference to current jeans style,
I don't think that this would be the case at YSL - or at least, it doesn't seem in keeping with the original spirit of the house - which was much more "luxury" and much less "democratic" than, say, the house of Dior. I may be mixing the two up. It's been a while since I cracked open a fashion history text.

i agree with la guy; nice look, but the pant length is a bit much. maybe if they had the pants flair, but with a standard length, i'd like it more.

That jacket fits exactly like my pea coat, my all time favorite garment. I like that jacket, but as a suit I agree it should have a little more closely tailored pants.

It looks pretty cool. The only things I'd change, as others have mentioned, are the sleeve length (shorten slightly) and the trouser length (shorten slightly more). Unfortunately, with the buttons spaced out that far horizontally, I'd look a little too stout in that jacket.

I really like that jacket, but I prefer straight-legged trousers. He looks like an indie kid from 2 years ago.

This is the new designerwho replaced Tom Ford. He keeps in my opinion more to the house's inherent spirit than Ford who relied on what worked at Gucci. I quite like this current collection. And the flared trousers I actually prefer. Although that tie could have been better knotted.

Too long trousers + too closely matching pocket square are very conflicting. Trousers display carelessness while the matching pocket square looks far too planned. Outside that contradiction I have no problems with the outfit.

I really like the jacket. I do not like the flare at the bottom of the trousers. Slim that down to a slight taper and I think this suit would be great.

Perhaps Alexis is a fashion design student?
