And the jacket . . . well, let'd just say that this jacket was actually cut with closed quarters and leave it at that.

All I can conclude is that either a) he had this suit -- and shirt -- made when he was 16 or b) everything is off the rack and he is a big guy that nothing will fit properly. But geez, what a trainwreck. This is supposed to be a style icon of yesteryear?

Maybe Henry Cabot Lodge's heirs can sue Thom Browne for stealing his gig.


I'll give you the point about the quarters

, but I disagree about the rest. His shirt sleeves are of the right length, though they could be a little more snug around the wrist. Of course, he may have preferred them loose in the heat.

What on earth...the shirt sleeves are just the right length. The jacket sleeves are maybe 1/2" too short at the most.

But it does look good, I've been enjoying the look of a longer point lately.

The younger Rubinacci is almost always clad in Belgian loafers, no matter how formal his attire otherwise.
