    That looks a lot better I still like the half windsor small knots almost look silly on me

    riverrun, past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs.

    Doing the top two buttons PLUS no dimple says two things to me:
    -I just started dressing up and have little idea what I'm doing.


    Poor kid, that's exactly the case, but I'm sure he will improve quickly. He needs a better stylist until his taste evolves.

    However, he was excellent in Superman Returns. See Entertainment for my review. [​IMG]

    I just re-watched the original Superman on DVD. I had no idea that Clark Kent's suits were provided by Barney's (they were thanked in the final credits).

    He does. He has the boyish grin and other character traits down to the tee as well.

    It fits him perfectly, as does the shirt (which is sea island cotton).

    Who makes his shirts?

    It's nice he's trying to act the part of a movie star. Image is alot in his business...

    Image in the sense of 'how well you dress'? I disagree -- I think acting is one profession where dress is least important.

    yea, image is important, but not so much the sartorial kind. More like the "vibe" kind, like are you a badboy or the boy next door. Good clothes are probably more important to an agent then his client, except on the red carpet at the Oscars

    Think about this: when was the last time we had a young actor that didn't look like some punk? Even the "boy next door" type guys look like frat boys gone wrong. So I think that if a young actor (like Brandon) takes the initiative and wears suits, nice shirts, and ties, we should applaud that he actually has enough respect for the public to dress up for public appearances. Good clothes are increasingly important to the 18-30 year old demographic, and I think he reflects that.

    But dressing well has to be something the actor in question wants to express. Otherwise wearing suits will be the same as wearing a set costume, and his discomfort will show thru in the lack of attention to the details that go with dressing well. But I'm all for actors dressing sharply/well, it's even more impressive when that person has a genuine interest in doing so, not just because his publicist thinks it's a good idea.

    Agreed. But in this case the actor in question does want to express it. If he didn't, he wouldn't wear the clothes he wears. The actors don't work for the publicists, the publicists work for the actors. The publicist might suggest something, but that's about it. Usually, (as in this case) the actor decides at least the direction they want to go in, and then things go from there.
