    Look at Arnold's left sleeve. Is it down to his knuckles?!?


    I was thinking the same thing. Even Blair's sleeves are too long, very sloppy looking.

    Our heads of state are not very sartorial nowadays but they've more important things than their suits to worry about!!!!!!
    We elected them for their brains not their looks .
    In the case of Arnie , i do not know!!!!!!!!!!!

    There was a previous photo of Blair looking just as bad:

    leg break, sleeve length, lack of shirt cuff, jacket length (either that or his arms are seriously too short), shoulders too wide, and, possibly worst of all: loafers. All in all, a kid wearing his fathers suit.

    I think, given Arnold's physique, his jacket is actually pretty good. It may be a bit on the long side, but if it were shorter, it would upset the balance in other ways. I mean, who wants a jacket that is almost as wide as it is long?
    The trousers don't look that great, though. Perhaps they moved down a bit, as someone suggested.

    Do the hacking pockets look as distressingly out of place on a navy suit to anyone else?

    I like the hacking pockets. I like the high gorge. The color looks good, but even Tony's jacket is too long.

    This topic was kinda covered before, they are actually nice shoes.

    What are these? Moreschi? I've seen Moreschis with that kind of welt and stitching.

    Many people mistake "expensive" to be "nice".

    I would bet that they are Lattanzi. In my opinion, it's a crap shoot between whose shoes look better, and both of their suits are cut poorly. Blair's slippers look out of place with that suit.

    iammatt said they were Stefano Branchini

    The shoes keeck oss. I would love a pair like that, gator or not. Whether they are $2000 or $200. I wouldn't wear it with a gray suit though.

    I must have missed Matt's post. I agree, I wouldn't wear them with a suit, at least not that suit. I really don't know which is the lesser of two shoe evils in this picture. For all I know, Blair's shoes are bespoke, but they look lame with that suit.

    Oh come on, they both look terrible. Both of their pants have huge, sloppy breaks. Blair's jacket is stiff and barrel-like; the lapel roll is non-existent. His suit cloth has no depth. The overall look is very bland and lifeless. I'm not saying he looks worse than Arnold, but they're both bland at best.

    Actually, I take that back; at least Arnold's shoes have some personality.

    They both look terrible, like a middle managers meeting for some new Hooters franchise in Oklahoma.

    Blair's shoes appear to be mid-range loafers with a corrected grain finish and Arnold looks like some has-been wrestler in his tacky shoes and droopy suit.
