A little too much sprezzatura there. The tie twist, the jacket cuff looks unbuttoned, and the shirt cuff unsecured as well. Trying a little too hard for my taste.
I'm getting really tired of people using 'spazzatura' as some excuse to do something stupid or jump on some wanky bandwagon. This is the style forum and IMO elements of style evolve at a gradual pace and have their roots in decades old traditions. Fred Astaire wearing a tie and a collar pin on a button collar shirt wasn't spazzatura it was just shit. Now we have knuckle heads doing this bollocks with their tie blades. It looks equally shit.
Nothing out of bounds about his use of a collar pin.
Here's hoping you're asking so you know how to avoid it, rather than emulate it.
Except it's completely unnecessary and as I said it looks shit. They look shit at the best of times, but on a shirt that already has the collar buttoned down screams of desperation. You are entitled to your opinion of course, but you are wrong!
