    The guy on the left.

    I don't know why his shirt sleeve seems unbuttoned. Otherwise, I like his outfit!

    Nice.

    That`s the way I like to do my shirts lately too...double button collar, angled cuff that`s unbuttoned.

    Is it the double buttoning of the collar that makes the collor look so stiff and high? its a distinguished look. His sleeve needs a 4th button. I'd lose the pant cuffs too, they are quite wide. I'd never even though about going out without cufflinks. I like it.

    Love the look; very flattering to him. It appears as though its tailored for him. Who is the gentleman pictured? Very conservative; but the tie cuts the ice a bit.

    I was about to say the same thing. The shirt looks mtm/bespoke for sure. Not very many rtw shirts have hight collars like that (I know b/c I have a long neck myself and mtm shirts/high collars make a WORLD of difference to my look).

    His shirt collar is a bit too high and trousers a bit skimpy.

    I disagree; I think the shirt collar looks good on him; it's a lot different than what is normally seen. The trousers, eh they could be dropped a half an inch or so, but at least its not as short as Thom Browne style.

    He needs brown shoes. The outfit looks nice and well executed, though his overall attitude and pose makes me want to beat him to the ground. [​IMG]

    I disagree These formal oxford shoes in black looks great with a navy blue suit. Great suit by the way but the trousers a bit to short

    - nice shirt and tie (fits well)
    - I like the length of trousers, but they're too tight at the bottom, compared to the bagginess on top (I dislike the 'funnel' look - its either or as far as I'm concerned); the turn up is too high
    - nice shoes and would not opt for brown (would clash with sky tie)

    Yes. most high collar shirts have 2 buttons...I guess you can still have a high collar made with just 1 button though.

    the 4th is unbuttoned on purpose.

    Extra wide cuffs are a very popular Italian look, and are very good for showing off your shoes. I think he should add a touch more length though.

    Doesn`t have to be a shirt for cufflinks though...You can do the same look with a button shirt.

    Dragon there is no fourth sleeve button to be unbuttoned (we're talking about the suit)

    There's something wierd about the whole thing to my eye. Maybe it's just his stance but I think he looks very stiff

    Beautiful shirt, but I think it would be even better worn with a DB suit. The spread of the collar overwhelms his SB coat, IMHO.

    Is that a crane technique he's about to use on the guy in tan? Plucking out his eye?
