    The last pic with the guy and the girl, looks like a Jcrew suit on an old guy.

    That's Brian Ferry. He's often hit and miss sartorialy. I see him now and then in Soho.
    Mind you - when you wrote this song - you can wear whatever you like in my book:

    the windowpane and pinstripe suits look to costumey/apparel arts for me. The rest of the stuff is marvelous, elegant but seemingly extremely comfortable. great color cordination also. The last pic with the guy and the girl, looks like a Jcrew suit on an old guy.

    He's also a Rubi client.

    that suit is badass.

    I really love the pic of the two guys walking out of the hotel, idyllic style.

    I don't know, I think they look costumey and all of their clothes generally look too big.

    Don't forget this one (from the same series on Will's blog), which is my personal favorite of the bunch: [​IMG]

    So just the one outfit then?

    the donegal suit, the two sportcoat looks are great. The windowpane suit in the pic with the other guy in the pinstripe suit is OK, not something I would wear but assuming it's not orange or something, it works for him.

    The Brian Ferry suit, in that pic, doesn't look too flattering

    ^I have to disagree. WHile I wouldn't personally wear many of the pieces, as whnay said "idyllic style." These guys are just plain bad ass. Further, I think the cut is impeccable and would like all of my clothes to fit like this - not too big at all. Slim fit is overrated in my book.

    I also actually really like the Brian Ferry's look (but for the low rise) and that is something I would wear all day long.

    I definitely didn't forget it, I had already posted it and didn't want to be redundant but is worth requoting.

    The two brothers dress well, but its kind of sad that they hire a professional photographer and strike these affected poses, just so they can send their pics in to Will. A little ridiculous.

    ^ Like our taking photos for Styleforum isn't ridiculous? I think we've all gone way past the point of no return on this one. It's just a matter of degree after that... [​IMG] It's great seeing the Churchwell brothers photos. I love the loose - but still correct - fit on both of them. Some brave retro fabric choices too. Simply marvellous.

    I didn't realize that was the case, but Iam cool with it. Their clothes look fitted, yet absolutely comfortable..

    I think the shirt cuff is a perfect detail for his style - but i couldn't pull it off.

    I think this looks stupid, to be honest.

    The guy must be on 200 grands a week... And his wife is earning quite a good living too..
    Yes. After I posted I learned from other posts that he was a "somebody" As a provincial Yank, I thought he was just another "chav", as you guys put it

    [​IMG] and happy to admire I like their audacity, but a retro look, no matter how awsmly done, when unleavened with a bit of playful irony can look too staged and stagnated

    If I were a rich old doctor, standing around for pictures would be as good a hobby as any.

    I think those brothers (Churchwell?) featured on A Suitable Wardrobe look a little too much as though they just stepped out of a 1937 fashion plate. It works for them, but they are a demonstration of why "classic" style as an ideal is not all that it's cracked up to be. They have style, but their style is drawn from 70-year-old fashion trends. It won't work for everybody, nor should it.

    It's not for everybody, but this forum's TTO does anachronistic pretty well.
