How is it not modern? I mean, yeah, the button down has been around since 1896, but it never particularly dates IMO. I agree with you though -- he pulls off that look wonderfully. On another note, I like how the collar points aren't short, as the trend seems to be with button downs right now.

IMO the button down collar tends to be rather associated with trad, a group not particularly well know for their, shall we say, progressive stylings. The overall theme of slim-cut one button suit, skinny peak lapels, skinny tie, eye catching socks, low-ish profile shoes, etc., is generally "fashion forward", at the risk of conjuring up the negative connotations of the term. So perhaps it's my own penchant for the cleaner look of a non-button down, but I think the general aesthetic is better complemented with a sleeker smallish semi-spread or standard point. Either way, GS pulls off the contrasting elements effortlessly as usual.

Etro linen jacket
D&G polo
D&G jeans [i think quality wise they leave a lot to be desired but the fit is edging towards what I am looking for]
John Lobb Stamford - Parisian museum brown

drizzt, i think you actually look really good with the wider jeans. your shoulders are very wide, probably due to your athletic build, and the wider jeans don't make you look so lopsided.

Drizz, the last two jackets you posted aren't a bad fit. Maybe a tad slim but not too bad. That Barbera suit you posted a ways back (striped if I remember right) is still the best I've seen on you though. And that last pair of jeans you posted is the best fit on you I've seen so far. Good job.

Andrew,

You mean this one, right?



I think that is my best fitting suit. It's a bit surprising, because it is Brioni, and one would think that the shoulder structure would be incompatible with my shoulders but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Omegablogger, those Lobbs are stunning. We need more MC shoes to be represented in the Steez.

I was there Friday night. Food was great but the crowd was a little iffy, alot of stretched out features and bubble lips.
I swear I saw you GS at PS late on Saturday?, must confirm?. The PS sale wasn't great, I had the 50% discount card and didn't see anything worth picking up.

nope I was there late thurs, not saturday Most of the good stuff was gone....the few things I picked up at full retail months ago werent around at sale time. Those brogues and the brogued wallet were all that really moved me, overall I thought this spring season didnt suit my tastes as much as in the past

Button down collars have been a Mod staple since the beginning, since they got into the Ben Shermans with long collar points and buttons. Without a jacket they almost (ironically) look sharper because the collar points can't go anywhere. And much of the Mod look comes from the American Ivy stuff you're thinking of as well.

Personally, with a jacket, I prefer a not-button-down collar, but in terms of the aesthetic and the "rules" he's working within, it's totally correct.
