    What he has done is made the pocket square too much navy matching navy tie, the sqaure and tie seem of the exact shade (although he has a tad of white) it draws the eye across the chest rather than toward the face imo. A solid white linen would have been perfect.

    You put the finger on it. Thank you.

    You're welcome. I break some rules, not many, but this one I believe in and this picture of Oliver is a great example.

    This look is very classical, here is a picture of Sir Connery from the early 60's.
    Alot of similarity, and Connery does it better with minimal simplicity:

    The negative is that can be a bit borish/simple.
    The positive is that it seems always elegant and appropriate for any situation.

    The clothing is Bond, but the attitude is more Bond Villian.

    Is this the attitude you were thinking?

    Ugh, stop making me laugh I'm going to get caught and get fired.

    I really, really like the suit. I'm using it as an example for my WW Chan fitting, though I'm just going to request that mine be an overall slimmer cut.

    Those shoulders are perfect!!
