Tie is awful, but his first misstep so far.
Simple stuff today.
I want to hate this, for all sorts of reasons. But this is one case where the whole defies analysis and works. I agree with @spectre 's assessment of the look - and it does look a but Amalfi Coast. But as far as that look goes, it works. No, it's not "tasteful" in any bourgeois way, but it does work.
Re jeans on older guys. It works for a lot of guys who have worn jeans their entire lives. As with many things, it depends on the man, above all else.
Immediately I posted my objection, I had a feeling that Fok would disagree! And I appreciate why. You do see this a lot in Italy (and not just on the Amalfi Coast), and it certainly does present that 'I am incredibly rich and/or famous and can wear a bespoke tailored suit jacket of the highest quality in any way I want, and what exactly are you going to do about it?' vibe. That Agnelli / Lino thing. And I guess I just don't like that very much.
Completely disagree. It just depends on the type of the wearer and the look/cut of the jeans. I would've chosen a different jacket to wear with denim, but overall the fit looks good I think.
Yeah, I'd say so, too.
spectre, any chance you can give multi-quote and spoilers a shot?
Since people seem to be sharing opinions on the matter, I am not feeling the Butler jeans and DB SC look.
Where's the suit from, @timotune? Looks different than your usual.
hard to follow timotune. Well done as always sir.
Coming back after a long day.
I wear a similar outfit as that, and quite liked it.
I did assume everyone would hate it, dark trousers, odd jacket, but I personally like it. I actually think it works okay because the jacket is clearly "informal" in a way that matches dark trousers, because with some exception dark trousers just look too city to match with informal pieces, but a more modern styling (single button, slimmish peak) jacket could work okay. I also thought a big part of the look is simple solid colors matching to create a sleekish look, and that's why I think a somewhat more solid/less busy tie is a better match, whereas if I went for a full suit then I'd have room for a stripe tie or something.
To be honest I mostly do this because it's a bit too formal for me to wear a full suit sometimes, so I put on odd trousers instead, idk, I'd actually like to know what you guys think.
Also in my defense I have since then had a haircut.
Based on his Tumblr...MTM from Suit Supply (cotton solaro)
My first thought was SS, but that's not like any SS I've ever seen--but I don't shop there, so what do I know.
Looks good though, really like the higher rise.
Feedback would be really appreciated, I haven't posted here much recently, as I don't have to wear a suit normally. but as I have a job that requires me to do so this summer, it would be great to get your opinions on this fit. Any criticism is welcome!
Nice use of light colored tussah, SB. And there's that Drake's square I missed out on last season. Not feeling the scale of the patterns in the jacket and checked shirt tho.
