I have this photo in my collect, but still it's worth a comment. This is great.
^ Yeah, LK is like the only one to pull that off successfully.
If Aeglus and George Clooney had a kid, this is what he would look like.
Charcoal, moss green and pumpkin make an attractive, masculine fall color palette.
You all knew this is Phat Guido right? One of the most recognizable guys on the men's style blogs even with his face cropped out of the photo. Now that shows a well defined style.
Who is this?
What jacket is that?
Where was this taken?
Member yfyf in his men's store The Armoury.
Not sure about that dark colored pocket square.
There's a lot going on in this look that I like. Not only is the color palette well done as you mention, but there's a nice interplay between the textures and patterns as well. The wet/smooth looks of the square and shirt play nicely with the dry roughness of the tie and jacket. The stripes of the shirt provide balance to the more horizontal patters of the tie and jacket. Overall, very successful look.
The main tension in this look seems to me to be in the level of formality in the elements. Peaked lapels and a TV fold white square, but a very loose cut on the jacket (I would contend the shoulders are just unambiguously too wide), an unbuttoned button-down collar...to me overall the fit isn't successful.
Love the color and shoulder on this jacket. I think it's true that this tie needs a loud pocket square so that it does not dominate the look too much, but I would pick a different one. I just can't look at this one without thinking tablecloth, and it matches the colors of the tie too closely.
