Not camel hair though...

Anyway it looks awful as a jacket. Beige sucks very often as the colour ends up being flat and this is yet another example. On the coat the rich material saves the day.

Hard to say exactly what that sport coat fabric is* - but I agree that from this distance, it' s not a very attractive color by itself. It works harmoniously with the rest of the outfit and provides easy contrasts - but by itself seems a little bird-poo colored.

* not to mention that the Sartorialist's fetish for color saturation enhancements make it challenging to figure out

I read an interview with Luciano Barbera a number of years ago. He holds onto his clothing forever. This could have been a bespoke jacket from the 80's when the wide shoulder was "happening". He seems to blend it well with new items for an overall classic look.

I think his glasses are an interesting and flattering color.

I'll join in on the mindless nitpicking: His fedora could stand to be re-blocked; but then he probably knows that.

I like and respect that miserly mindset, but still don't get why he'd have bought the wide shoulder in the first place.

I don't think we need to make excuses for this. Plenty of people like extension and the droopy effect it provides. I just don't get it, personally. But it would be a boring world if we all liked the same things.

His clothes are a bit roomy because gents tend to shrink as they age. Just look at old Prince Phillip.
