    barims, suit is dries from this past spring I like it minus the tie/shirt combo


    I know, I was referring to the Asian gent with the psych-patterned jacket. I tried on a Dries trench in the same fabric as Bowles's suit during the sales and didn't like it, but the suit seems much more wearable, probably because of my double breasted suit preference, and, having tried on a current season DB jacket, because the cut is well done

    Weird to think people buy and wear modern Pierre Cardin.

    Indeed

    The Sartorilist is there to shock ...If we did have thousands of pictures of very well dressed Dandies , the all thing would lose all its interest..

    Bowles is a moderately eccentric dandy the rest of the time - this is certainly the most full-on ensemble I've seen from him

    I would have done a big rust-orange tie.

    What I've noticed about Hamish Bowles is that his clothing doesn't have very good fit. It's all vaguely baggy.


    I also presume you'd change the shirt. For me, a white one makes the most sense, along with my own textured rust-red tie, or perhaps something in green

    I agree that Hamish is a little voluminous. If he was like me in that his jackets fit fairly close, even if his trousers didn't, he'd go up a notch in my appreciation. As it is, I enjoy his risk-taking with pattern clashes

    *And the moustache has to go


    I didn't even recognize him at first with that 'stache. Seems to instantly age the guy, in a bad way.

    ^ I like his flannel (?) trousers. A little change and he'd be totally SF approved.
