    Gay Talese: an obvious choice.


    Love the lapel stripes on this one.

    These lapels ruin an otherwise nice suit.

    Did anyone notice the "contrast collar" the Reverend Jackson (second row) is wearing to Mr. Wilson's funeral?

    I wouldn't consider Rudy Giuliani sharp. Now, Mayor Jimmy Walker, certainly: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've posted this before, but this is quintessentially sharp dressing for me:

    It's from the cover of the John Adams CD of "Dharma at Big Sur" and "My father knew Charles Ives"

    That is so cliche, a good suit is not meant to be noticed. I think it's bullcocky. A well fitting, well made suit should be noticied regardless of how conservative the styling or color is. If it is not, you might as well shop at Men's Warehouse

    Shopping at Men's Wearhouse will definitely get you noticed but in the Brummellian sense no individual item on a well dressed man should stand out. Yes, a man may draw attention because he is wearing a suit, but if eyes are drawn to your Kiton windowpane it's too loud.

    On Larry Brown:

    Yes, but is he sharp?

    Getting paid 20 million NOT to coach -- now that's sharp!


    On unbuttoned BDs:

    Only il Sr. Angelli could do that without it being a seeming affectation. Il Sr. Montezemolo always appears too self-conscious in my opinion.

    Went to lunch with my dad about a month ago, and he wore a seersucker BD shirt without the buttons done up. Trust me, that was flat-out oversight ... [​IMG]

    But what about boutonnieres and such?
