    Wait, it's that gay dude from Sex and the City. I think his name is Stanley.

    Honestly, I think this is one of your few misses. While I really like the color of his jacket, nothing else really works. This is a perfect example of what I affectionately call the "German businessman" silhouette. The jacket is too large by at least one full size, the shirt looks blousy even with the jacket on, and his jeans are hitched like it's 1989, as does the stonewash. The general shapelessness (of the jeans) completes the look. He looks like he's been taking style cues from Jerry Seinfeld.

    I'll bet that his jeans are fall just to the top of his brown Ecco shoes.

    That looks like the Brooks Brothers/Loro Piana cord suit.

    Exactly. There were a ton of them on ebay for $149.

    I like the pocket square/jeans color combo. I have an addition to my pocket square wish list.

    [​IMG] Know exactly what you mean! Normally these guys would wear "cute/funny" socks so the outfit doesn't look too "serious". Fabienne probably knows what I'm talking about.

    This combination is too tasteless for me, I will not wear like that, neither in NYC nor anywhere.

    On the plus side, his sleeves are a good length, and I like the pocket square, watch, and frames.

    Charcoal flannel wool slacks and the shirt tucked in correctly would have saved the outfit. Jeans are, to fix the sink.

    Tom, stop trying to make things seem better than they are.
