    Are referring to Morty Sills?

    Odd, the placement of the lapel buttonhole


    Only us old Ivy types would even recognize the name Morty Sills.
    Besides, I doubt Sills would have made the type of clothes Gay

    Mister Mort is like the Sartorialist...except he focuses on old people.

    We know who Morty Sills is here...we have all seen Wall Street.

    I even have a vintage Sills suit.

    I had forgotten the Wall Street reference. I was thinking of some of the great New York
    tailors and men's shops still around in the 80s, two of which, Dunhill Tailors and Andre
    Oliver, I commented on in an earlier post:




    Dunhill Tailors

    A wonderful store. In RTW they featured several models
    which were basically a hybrid Saville Row/ Ivy League
    look, eg. side vents but natural shoulders. I got a summer
    suit there in the early 80s ... very elegant and distinctive.
    I still have some of their shirts which look stylish 20 years later.
    No onehas mentioned , but I recall that their furnishings
    department was staffed by delicious young females, a apt
    counterpoint to the otherwise clubby atmosphere. After
    their purchase by Dunhill ( Tobacco,etc.) the Manhattan
    store still claimed to have the MTM and Bespoke service of
    the original Dunhill Tailors. Into the 90s this store did have
    try-ons of the Dunhull Tailors models. This service was not
    available in the San Francisco store.

    Another wonderful men's shop a block or two down 57th St
    was Andre Oliver.

    Andre Oliver operated a very elegant shop on 57th st,
    near the original Dunhill Tailors in the 80s. He sold trim
    low rise trousers with Frech pleats( inward-facing)
    The dress shirts had wide spread collars and rivalled
    T&A of the time in selection of pattern and color.
    Most spectacular, were Andre Oliver's cable-stich cashmere
    sweaters which came in any hue imaginable. All merchanise
    was in conspicuously elegant taste.
    I still have several of the slacks which await my loss of 10 lbs
    ( a project underway for longer than I want to admit)

    I'm wearing this exact outfit today, except I have a felt flower in the lapel.

    Photo(s), please.

    Those men are looking a lot less glamourous this year.

    This is a pleasant enough outfit, if overprimped somewhat by the wishy-washy turn-up on the jeans.

    Everything else looked horrid esp. these:

    http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l8...fs96o1_400.png - a thuggish look, completed by shirt undone
    http://www.coolhunt.net/wp-content/u...7-_CDA0048.jpg - unattractively short & tight jacket
    http://www.coolhunt.net/wp-content/u..._1006_0060.jpg - horrid DB, unappealing colours, nasty square, ugly hair


    They're quite bad...

    I prefer the thug's look ...

    Very nice. But I think that's the wrong kind of shirt.

    I actually like this. Great accessories but just way too much when worn all at once.
